05: Legend of Legaia Character Info [CHAR]

Due to its much greater detail, the V-Jump released for Legend of Legaia
in Japan was used for the character biography information rather than
the game pamphlet for the US release. Many thanks to my good friend Kazu
Glascock for the translations! :P

NOTE: The bios for Jette, Zora, Dohati and Zeto are not from the V-Jump
as they do not have any, but rather from the Legend of Legaia Japanese
Offical Strategy Guide.

I will insert the Japanese text next to the names of characters in this
section of this script. If you cannot see it, you will need to have an
East Asian Text Support on your CPU. In order to chance the page's
encoding in your web browser, go to "View" then "Character Encoding",
and then select the proper encoding format.

* Name in parentheses is the Romaji for the Japanese release.
* Farthest right are the Japanese characters for their names.

                                                               [a100]

0                              Prologue                             0
0===================================================================0

                       God created the heavens,
                       the earth, and the seas.
                   After creating all things in the
                     universe, god created humans
                        to rule over the world.
                   Yet, while possessing the wisdom
                    of god, humans were physically
                      weaker than the wild beasts,
                        and impulsive in spirit.
                       Many times did the humans
                   come close to dying out forever.
                      Concerned about the humans'
                    future, god gave them a mighty
                     force with which to aid them.

                            It was the Seru.

                        Since the dawn of human
                        memory, known as history,
                       humans lived together with
                         creatures known as Seru.
                      The Seru lived together with
                       humans, always obeying them,
                    and making the humans many times
                          stronger than before.
                    When not worn by a human, a Seru
                     looks much like a stone figure.
                                However...

                     Upon touching a human, a Seru
                   changes form and gives that human
                           secret abilities.

                     With a Seru, a human can lift
                    objects heavier than itself and
                      even fly in the air at will.

                   However, that era came to an end.

                    Appearing from out of nowhere,
                      the Mist covered the land,
                     bringing to an end prosperous
                   symbiosis between humans and Seru.

                      After the thick Mist came,
                   the Seru, who once obeyed humans,
                        rebelled against them.

                   The Seru began attacking humans
                     at will. Seru that attached
                   themselves to humans controlled
                   their minds and turned them into
                              evil beasts.

                         As if forsaken by god,
                     human civilization collapsed.
                    It was the twilight of humanity.

                       Those who escaped the Mist
                      inhabited the desolate areas
                        and protected each other.
                         Now, their faint hope is
                    their only source of inspiration.

{The camera pans over the small village of Rim Elm which lies on a
southern coast. The door to a small hut on the southeast of town opens
and out steps the hero of our adventure, Vahn. He walks to the opposite
end of town and peers in a hut's window before walking into a large pit
holding an ancient tree. Vahn closes his eyes in prayer as a little
blonde girl and an old man walk up to him}

Village Elder: Vahn! I knew you would be here.

Village Elder: The mysterious Genesis Tree. This is a soothing place.
You always liked this tree. Tomorrow, you will become a hunter, an
adult. Were you praying for a successful hunt?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Village Elder: That is good. Then I, too, will pray for your success.
======================================================================

2) No

Village Elder: I was wrong. Perhaps you're praying for the safe return
of the hunters who are out now.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Village Elder: Vahn, I thought I would come here to cheer you up. But I
guess that wasn't necessary. You will be a fine hunter! I'm counting on
you, from the bottom of my heart! Ha, ha, ha, ha!

{The Village Elder strolls off. Vahn heads up the stairs as the door to
the hut he looked into earlier opens. The beautiful Mei greets Vahn}

Mei: Vahn! I was looking for you. So you were praying at the Genesis
Tree. It's about the hunting clothes for you to wear tomorrow.

1) What hunting clothes?
2) Is something wrong?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) What hunting clothes?

Mei: You're terrible! I can't believe you forgot. After all the trouble
I went through to make them for you to wear hunting tomorrow.

a. I'm sorry! Now I remember.
b. I was just joking. Ha, ha.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a. I'm sorry! Now I remember.

Mei: Vahn, you...You're so anxious to go hunting that you forgot all
about it. I guess that's what I like about you, Vahn. Oh, and by the
way...
======================================================================

b. I was just joking. Ha, ha.

Mei: That's a mean joke. I was really angry for a minute. Anyway...
======================================================================

2) Is something wrong?

Mei: I'm almost finished, but I have to check some of the measurements
so, can I measure you one more time?

a. Sure, go ahead.
b. Uh, not now.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a.  Sure, go ahead.

Mei: Thanks. Vahn, you're so kind.
======================================================================

b. Uh, not now.

Mei: I just have to make one little alteration, so it'll only take a
minute.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mei:
I'll be at your house waiting for you, so don't be too late.

{Vahn decides to go the beach to find his friend and mentor, Tetsu}

Tetsu:
You were a child when the Mist appeared, Vahn, but now you are ready
for the hunt. Time goes by so quickly. I have taught you the techniques
of Biron all your life. Do not forget them while hunting outside the
village! Now, then...Vahn, do you want something today?

1) I want to hear about Biron.
2) Tell me the secrets of fighting.
3) I want to practice with you.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I want to hear about Biron.

Tetsu: Biron is a god of strength and love. Outside Rim Elm is a temple
devoted to Biron. There, many warrior-monks devoted to Biron practiced
night and day. They renounced the world's dependence on Seru and worked
to polish their fighting skills. Many Biron warrior-monks also traveled
the globe to spread the noble teachings of Biron. When visiting Rim
Elm, I was trapped here by the Mist. But I am still a faithful Biron! I
feel it is my destiny to teach the young the teachings and fighting
skills of Biron.
======================================================================

2) Tell me the secrets of fighting.

Tetsu: Ha, ha, ha! There's no shortcut to success in battle! Constant
training is the only way. However, I shall teach you a little secret.
Use your Spirit effectively! You will be unable to attack and thus be
attacked...but your defensive force rises while you are accumulating
Spirit. That's not all! In your next turn, you will be able to inflict
more attacks! This is a good strategy when fighting a formidable
opponent.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3) I want to practice with you.

Tetsu: I see. Before we practice, take this.

Narration: Vahn now has a Healing Leaf!

Tetsu: Now you are ready. Come at me!

Tetsu: You did well. That is enough for today. Tomorrow you leave for
the outside world, where many Seru lurk. Do not be overconfident!

{Vahn leaves the beach and heads over to his home}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Mei is in Vahn's house working on the Hunter Clothes for Vahn's
hunting trip. Vahn's little sister, Nene, paces around the house.
Vahn's father, Val, sits at his desk in front of his books}

Nene: It's getting late. What could he be doing?

{Val takes a break from his reading and looks at Mei}

Val: I'm sorry, Mei. That Vahn -- I wonder where he's wandering around.

Mei: It's alright. My father hasn't come back from hunting today yet,
anyway.

Nene: I should be the one making hunting clothes for my brother.

Mei: Don't worry about it, Nene. I just wanted to help celebrate this
special day for Vahn.

Nene: Um, Mei, can I ask you something?

Mei: What is it?

Nene: Mei, are you in love with my brother?

Mei: !

{Mei blushes a beet red as Vahn strolls casually through the door}

Nene: Ah-ha! I knew it!

{Nene notices Vahn walk inside}

Nene: What took you so long? Mei has been waiting for you this whole
time! You're always wandering around with your head in the clouds.
Let's hurry up and take those measurements!

{Mei regains her composure and walks over to Vahn}

Mei: Vahn, hold still. I'll only take a minute.

{Mei takes out her measuring tape and starts measuring him}

Mei: I knew it! You've gotten bigger since the last time I measured
you. You're almost as big as my father - maybe bigger! It's amazing how
quickly boys grow. Alright, I'm done. Thank you, Vahn.

{Mei looks over at Val and Nene}

Mei: Mr. Val, little Nene, if you'll excuse me, I'll be on my way.

Val: Thank you, Mei. Give my regards to Juno when he returns from the
hunt!

Mei: I will!

{Mei walks out of the house. The scene fades to black}

Off-Screen: They're back!

{Three men rush over to the gate within the northern end of Rim Elm's
Wall. They unbar the gate and pull it wide open}

Man: The hunters have returned!

Old person: By golly, they were gone a long time.

Little boy: Father! My father is back!

{The kid runs up to a hunter who has entered the village}

Little boy: Welcome back, Father. Did you catch anything?

{The boy's father ignores him and turns to the gate. Hunters enter
through the gate carrying a body on a stretcher}

Old person: Is that...Is that...It is. It's Juno.

{Mei runs into view}

Mei: Father? Father?

Hunter: I'm so sorry, Mei. It happened so quickly...before we knew it.
The Mist came earlier than usual...Juno was attacked by the Seru
monsters...There wasn't anything we could do.

{Vahn arrives at the group and walks over to Mei}

Mei: Father...Father, wake up! Please, open your eyes! Father! No!
Don't leave me all alone, Father. Please! Don't! Oh, please...

{Vahn places his hand on Mei's shoulder. The screen fades}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{A view of the ocean is seen as Village Elder and Val walk out of Mei's
house. Nene is waiting outside for Val}

Nene: The Mist always takes away the people we love! I hate the Mist!
Tell me, Father. Will we always have to live in fear of the Mist? When
will we be able to go outside the village safely?

Val: Nene...

Nene: Father!

{The scene changes to the interior of Mei's house. Mei is looking at
her father's corpse on the bed}

Old Woman: Vahn...Don't worry about Mei. She's calmed down considerably.
It will be dark soon. We'll stay here with Mei, so go home and don't
worry about her.

1) Alright. Please look after her.
2) No! I want to stay with Mei!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Alright. Please look after her.

Old Woman: Good. Then be careful on your way home.
======================================================================

2) No! I want to stay with Mei!

Old Woman: I know how you feel, but Val and Nene are waiting for you to
come home. Just say a word or two to Mei and then be off.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn returns to his house}

Val: Vahn, you look sad. I understand. Juno was a kind man. Soon the
Mist will come. You must be tired. Do you want to rest?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Val: I see. After all that has happened, it's no wonder you can't
sleep.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Val: Good. Rest well, then.

{The scene fades to black}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{It's the middle of the night and a loud bang continuously collides
with the Wall guarding Rim Elm}

Val: Vahn! Wake up! Can't you hear that sound? Vahn, wake up!

{Val shakes Vahn and he jumps out of bed}

Val: Are you awake now? Vahn, listen carefully to that sound. I think
it's coming from beyond the Wall. Vahn, would you go take a look for
me?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Val: That's a good son. But hurry back at the first sign of danger!
======================================================================

2) No

Val:
I see. But with these legs, I couldn't move fast enough, if something
happened. I implore you, Vahn! Go take a look for me!

a. OK
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a. OK.

Val: That's a good son. But hurry back at the first sign of danger!
======================================================================

b. No.

Nene: Please...for me?

1) Alright, Nene.
2) I guess I have no choice.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Alright, Nene.

Nene: I knew I could count on my big brother!

Val: Yes, but hurry back at the first signs of danger!
======================================================================

2) I guess I have no choice.

Nene: What's wrong with you? You're acting different today.

Val: I wish I weren't always a burden to you because of this bad leg of
mine. Thank you, Vahn, I'm counting on you!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn runs outside and joins the other villagers who have gathered at
the front of the Wall}

Village Elder: Oh, Vahn. So you came to check on the Wall, did you?
This Wall has protected Rim Elm from the Mist for over ten years.
Hopefully it will stay standing forever.

Off-Screen: Ah, quite impressive. Look how many puny humans survive.

{A strange portal forms right in front of the villagers}

Village Elder: Wha...What on earth is that?

{A metallic-looking creature with a pointed head and a slit for eyes
rises out of the portal}

Mysterious Being: Pitiful creatures, you humans. Living in fear of the
Mist, you scream at the sight of a Seru's shadow. Pathetic humans! In
this desolate place, you thought this flimsy wall would protect you
from the Mist? Humans! You are but insects! The time has come to
abandon your foolish resistance. I am Zeto. I have come to bring the
salvation of the Mist to you miserable creatures.

{Tetsu leaps into the air and attacks Zeto, but Zeto activates a shield
that knocks Tetsu to the ground}

Zeto: Humans! Now is the time! Accept the Mist!

{Zeto turns toward the Wall as a monstrous creature larger than the
village itself shoots fiery blasts that destroy the Wall. Mist begins
to flow within Rim Elm}

Middle-Aged Woman: The...The Mist!

Hunter: Oh no! The accursed Mist has entered Rim Elm!

Zeto: It is time! Seru! Followers of the Mist! It is time for you to
attack! Seru! Destroy that old eyesore of a tree!

{Zeto disappears back into his portal. The gigantic Seru from earlier
vanishes and a swarm of Gimard Seru enter Rim Elm}

Middle-Aged Woman: Aaarrggh!

{A Seru that has entered the village begins to attack one of the women}

Zeto: Save yourselves by accepting the serenity of the Mist without
resistance.

{Vahn battles the Seru and defeats it, saving the woman who was being
attacked}

*******************************
Optional Event: Checking on Mei
*******************************

{Vahn runs into Mei's house to check on her}

Mei: Vahn! They all went to check on the Wall, but still haven't come
back. Vahn, what happened?

1) The Mist is here!
2) Nothing to worry about.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) Nothing to worry about.

Mei: Oh, O.K. Well, then, I'll stay by my father's side. (Silence)
======================================================================

1) The Mist is here!

Mei: Oh, no! That means the Seru monsters will come into Rim Elm! What
should we do?

a. Let's go to my house!
b. Lock all your doors and windows!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. Lock all your doors and windows!

Mei: Alright, I'll do that.

{Mei stays by her father's corpse}

*Vahn talks to Mei again

Mei: Vahn, be careful.
======================================================================

a. Let's go to my house!

Mei: Thank you, Vahn! Maybe that would be better. Alright, take me to
your house!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn nods and gets ready to head out the door}

Mei: Oh, wait a minute, Vahn! Father...

{Mei takes another look at her father before heading out the door with
Vahn. Vahn takes the lead and keeps a lookout while Mei follows him
back to his place}

Val: You did a good thing, Vahn. Mei must have been uneasy all by
herself. Ah, but...If my cursed body were not crippled like this...The
Wall is broken, yet all we can do is huddle together in fear. If only
there were someplace safe for us.

******************
End Optional Event
******************

{Vahn runs back outside and finds his way back to the Genesis Tree}

Woman: Vahn! I'm so glad to see you! I was all alone! I came here to
get away from the Seru monsters. Hey, have you noticed that the Mist
doesn't come in here? The Genesis Tree is glowing. It's radiating some
kind of amazing power. The Genesis Tree is very warm. Vahn, go ahead,
touch it.

{Vahn touches the Genesis Tree}

Voice: ...Vahn. Vahn...You are Vahn, are you not?

{A red and green stone figure rises out of the Genesis Tree and
levitates in front of Vahn}

Stone Figure: I have read your thoughts. I am speaking to your mind. I
am Meta, a Ra-Seru. I have been waiting inside this Genesis Tree for
someone like you. I ask you, Vahn. Do you wish to save your people from
the Mist?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes.

Meta: Good! By combining our powers, we will rid the whole world of the
Mist! Vahn, open your mind...Feel my presence.
======================================================================

2) No.

Meta: You regard me with suspicion that is understandable. But through
your mind, I can see whatever you see. I see your people trembling in
fear of the Mist. They stand at an abyss of despair! And you, Vahn...
such a kind boy you are. Your hatred for the Mist is stronger than
anyone else's. I will give you my powers!

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Meta: Very well. Your destiny is your own. I can't will it to change.
It is unfortunate, for this may be the only way to defeat the Mist.
======================================================================

a. Yes

(Same 'Yes' response as above)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* This section is skipped if Vahn does not at first say 'No' to Meta.

Meta: Let us pursue the same destiny as human and Ra-Seru working
together!

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

(Same 'Yes' response as above)
======================================================================

2) No

(Same 'No' response as above)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

* This dialog option is skipped if Vahn already answers 'Yes'

Meta: Vahn, so you have changed your mind. Then come, let us pursue a
single destiny!

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Meta: Vahn, you are so very capricious. Do not make me lose faith in
you...and in all humans.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Meta: Vahn, open your mind...Feel my presence.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn closes his eyes and Meta attaches to Vahn's right forearm}

Meta:
The approaching Mist is killing the Genesis Tree. I am too weak...I
need the life force of the Genesis Tree to be strong. To revive the
Genesis Tree, we need the power to change destiny -- the power of the
human spirit! Vahn, hurry! Hurry and assemble everyone here!

1) Option One: Speak to Val
2) Option Two: Speak to Village Elder
3) Option Three: Speak to Mei
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

************************
Option One: Speak to Val
************************

{Vahn runs back to his house}

Val: Vahn, what is that? That...that's a Seru!

{Vahn tells Val what's going on}

Val: (Silence) Now I understand, although this is all so confusing. The
situation is desperate. Our only hope now is your Seru and the Genesis
Tree. Alright! Tell everyone to gather at the Genesis Tree!
======================================================================

**********************************
Option Two: Speak to Village Elder
**********************************

{Vahn runs to the Village Elder's house on top of the hill}

Village Elder: What are you doing, Vahn? That's a Seru! (Silence)
(Silence) Oh, so it's a Ra-Seru, is it? I don't understand, but I can
tell that your words and the Seru do not lie. Alright, then, Vahn! I'm
trusting you with the lives of everyone in the village!
======================================================================

**************************
Option Three: Speak to Mei
**************************

{Vahn runs back to his house after escorting Mei there and receiving
Meta}

Mei: Vahn! Vahn! What's that on your right arm? Is that...a Seru?

1) That's right.
2) No, it's a Ra-Seru!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) That's right.

Mei: Oh, no! Vahn, you have to remove the Seru. Hurry!

{Vahn shakes his head no}

Mei: Oh, I see.
======================================================================

2) No, it's a Ra-Seru!

Mei: (Silence)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mei: So, it's a Ra-Seru...Yes, I do sense something gentle about this
Seru. Alright, tell everyone! We're all going to revive the Genesis
Tree!
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{The scene changes and everybody is gathered at the Genesis Tree}

Village Elder: Vahn, Rim Elm is engulfed in the Mist. You and the Ra-
Seru are our last hope! We entrust you with our lives. Everyone, we
must pray together.

Meta: The power of prayers is strong! Now's the time, Vahn! Go to the
Genesis Tree!

{Vahn stands at the base of the Genesis Tree}

Meta: Awaken, Genesis Tree. Remember the instant heaven and the earth
were born! Vahn, you, too, must pray!

{Vahn begins to pray}

Meta: Good! Harder! Pray harder!

{The villagers start to glow with light as they pray}

Meta: To push away the Mist! To revive the Genesis Tree! Open your
minds! Pray hard!

{Vahn reaches out to the Genesis Tree and the light from the villagers'
bodies combines and enters Vahn's right hand. As Vahn touches the
Genesis Tree it begins to transform into a healthy tree; its power
causing the invading Seru to shatter and the Mist surrounding Rim Elm
to vanish}

                                   Meta:
                                Thank you.
                              Thanks to Vahn,
                         and the people of Rim Elm,
                    the Genesis Tree has been revived.
                      The Genesis Tree has the power
                       to drive away the Mist and to
                     make a Ra-Seru like me stronger.
                        The Mist has left Rim Elm,
                            but it still covers
                          the rest of the Earth.
                            Many Genesis Trees
                            wait to be revived.
                            Vahn, let us leave
                             Rim Elm together
                     to look for those Genesis Trees.

{Vahn collapses}

Nene: Brother...

Village Elder: Don't worry. He's just in a deep sleep.

Val: How peaceful he looks. He must be dreaming about something nice.

Mei: Vahn...

{The screen fades to black}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{The people of Rim Elm are gathered at the beach to see off the dead
bodies of three villagers who died at the hands of the Seru: Rei, Esto
and Juno}

Village Elder: (Silence) And our friend, Juno. The hateful fangs of the
Seru took their lives from them. To Ferti, god of the sea, we entrust
their bodies. But Rem, our leader. Our great leader! On your sacred
wings, take the noble souls of our friends to the Valley of Noaru! May
their souls find peace and eternal happiness in the distant Valley of
Noaru.

{Some hunters push Rei's and Esto's coffins into the water and shortly
after push Juno's coffin out to sea. Mei rushes into the ocean and
cries as her father's body floats away}

Mei: (Silence)

{A little boy watching the funeral from the village turns to his
mother}

Little boy: Mommy, where are Juno and the others going?

Mommy: To the Valley of Noaru, dear. Far, far away -- beyond the sea.

Little boy: Is Juno going to come back? Will he bring us
good things to eat again?

Mommy: The Valley of Noaru is... ...very, very far away, dear. I don't
think he will come back.

{The screen fades to black}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Vahn is standing near the newly revived Genesis Tree. The Village
Elder walks over to him}

Village Elder: A Genesis Tree and a Ra-Seru...We had some pretty
important things here in Rim Elm! Vahn, Rim Elm is saved thanks to you!
You were truly courageous and I thank you again. However...It's about
our precious Mei. Her mother may still be alive inside the Mist! If you
have pity on Mei, then rescue her mother. If you say yes, I'll tell you
the rest of the story. Will you do it?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Village Elder: I'm sure you're concerned about Mei, too. Will you do
it?
======================================================================

1) Yes

Village Elder: Oh, thank you! Now, even Mei doesn't know this,
but...Mei's mother, Maya, used to work at Biron Monastery. Ten years
ago the Mist came... ...and naturally we lost all contact with her. As
for whether Biron Monastery itself still survives in the Mist...
Unfortunately no one knows. But Maya is Mei's only surviving blood
relative! Vahn, with the Ra-Seru, I'm sure you can make it to Biron
Monastery! Vahn! I'm counting on you. Once more thing, Vahn. Keep this a
secret from Mei...She will only be heartbroken if Biron Monastery has
indeed been lost to the Mist.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{After the Village Elder leaves Vahn prepares to exit Rim Elm}

Mei: Vahn! Wait, Vahn!

{Mei runs over to Vahn at the village entrance}

Mei: Phew! Oh, I'm glad I made it. Here! I brought you the hunting
clothes I promised you.

Narration: Vahn now has Hunter Clothes.

*****************************************************
Conditional: If Vahn Brought Mei to His House Earlier

Mei: And this is a gift for you, to thank you for rushing to check up
on me yesterday.

Narration: Vahn now has Mei's Pendant.

End Conditional
***************

Mei: Hey, Vahn, what's the matter?

1) Are you alright now?
2) Mind your own business.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Are you alright now?

Mei: Yes. I had a good cry. And making your hunting clothes took my
mind off everything.
======================================================================

2) Mind your own business.

Mei: Hee, hee! You're so cute when you get embarrassed like that!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mei: Vahn, I heard from the Village Elder that you're going on a long
trip.

{Vahn nods}

Mei: Well, take care. And don't forget to wear the hunting outfit I
made you. And be sure to come back when you finish whatever it is you
have to do. I mean it! You'd better come back!

{Mei turns to leave]

Mei: I've never been good at saying goodbyes. So I have to go home now.
I'm sorry...I'll be waiting for you to come back, Vahn!

{Vahn leaves Rim Elm and journeys northwest toward Hunter's Spring}

{Vahn walks into the Hunter's Spring and meets up with a group of
hunters from Rim Elm}

Hunter 1: Oh, Vahn! I'm glad you came.

Hunter 2: I'm impressed! You made it here all by yourself?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Hunter 2: Ha, ha, ha! You're so confident! You're a lot hardier than us
hunters.
======================================================================

2) No

Hunter 2: Oh, so the Ra-Seru Meta is with you, eh? Vahn, you've grown
up into a fine adult!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hunter 1: By the way, Vahn, see that guy over there? Don't know him?
Well, we come here often, but this is the first time we've met someone
else here! He says his name's Lezam, and he was telling us the most
amazing story.

{Lezam bows to Vahn, Vahn bows back}

Hunter 3: Vahn, you should talk to Lezam, too.

{Vahn walks over to Lezam}

Lezam: I am called Lezam. I serve King Drake, ruler of Drake Kingdom.
So, you are Vahn. The hunters have told me of you. You have done great
deeds. You have my gratitude.

1) Tell me why you are grateful
2) Thanks, but I must be going
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) Thanks, but I must be going

Lezam: You wish to resume your journey. I understand. Then I shall not
take up your time. I had hoped to ask your help concerning Drake
Castle, which lies beyond here.
======================================================================

*Vahn talks to Lezam again

Lezam: What is wrong? Do you wish to hear my story?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Lezam: (Silence) Good luck.
======================================================================

a. Yes

Lezam: Then I shall tell you.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Tell me why you are grateful

Lezam: Yes, this is about something that happened before the Mist
reached here. I was heading to Rim Elm under King Drake's orders to
warn them of the Mist. But the Mist caught up with me, and I became a
Seru monster! From what I hear, it is your deeds that enabled me to
become human again. That is why I am grateful. Thank you so much! Drake
is surrounded by the Mist, and King Drake is surely awaiting you...your
powers! With your powers, our Castle could be saved. Will you help us?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Lezam: N...No? Oh. I see. Perhaps I ask too much. I am sure you have
your own quests to pursue. I apologize.
======================================================================

a. Yes

Lezam: Oh, thank you! Please do whatever you can to save Drake Castle!
Before I departed, the King had made a frightening decision. I hope he
is safe.

Optional Tutorial
*****************

{Vahn reads the information written on the four knights of armor found
behind the fountain at Hunter's Spring}

Mysterious Statue

Narration: In strange script on the pedestal it reads, "Arts: Secrets."

1) I don't need to read any part of it.
2) Read "About Arts"
3) Read "Learning Arts"
4) Read "About AP"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I don't need to read any part of it.

(nothing happens)
======================================================================

2) Read "About Arts"

Narration: Arts - For inflicting severe damage on your opponent, two
things are needed: Arts and AP! Execute Arts by combining "Right (Ra-
Seru)", "Left (Arms)", "High", and "Low" battle commands in a specific
sequence. You also need sufficient AP to execute an Arts move.
======================================================================

3) Read "Learning Arts"

Narration: Try different combinations of commands when fighting -
that's the secret to discovering new Arts! A kind person may teach you
new Arts. If you are lucky, you can also discover new Arts using Auto
battle mode. There are also Hyper Arts! The only way to learn these is
to read the hidden Secret Books.
======================================================================

4) Read "About AP"

Narration: AP stands for "Art Points," which are needed to execute
Arts. When fighting a powerful opponent, check your remaining APs! APs
range from 0 to 100. There are three ways to obtain AP: 1.
Automatically during each turn. 2. Using the Spirit command. 3.
Sustaining damage from an opponent's attack.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mysterious Statue

Narration: In strange script on the pedestal it reads, "Secrets of
Magic."

1) I don't need to read any part of it
2) Read "About Magic"
3) Read "Learning Magic"
4) Read "Identifying Seru Opponents"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I don't need to read any part of it

(nothing said)
======================================================================

2) Read "About Magic"

Narration: Magic is the most powerful advantage of Ra-Seru. To learn
magic, defeat a Seru in combat. Magic requires MP, which stands for
Magic Points. Each spell has a different Magic Level from 1 to 9. When
Magic is successfully used repeatedly, the level rises. The power of
Magic depends on the user, the opponent, and the attributes of each.
======================================================================

3) Read "Learning Magic"

Narration: First, remember that Magic can only be acquired by Ra-Seru,
not humans! When humans with Ra-Seru defeat Seru, new Magic may be
acquired, unless the Seru opponent was defeated with Magic. Also, Magic
is acquired only by the victorious character. For a certain character
to acquire Magic, that character must deliver the final blow in combat!
======================================================================

4) Read "Identifying Seru Opponents"

Narration: To acquire Magic, you must fight a Seru opponent. Seru can
be identified by their name, such as Fire Gimard. The name also tells
you the element. Fire Seru possess the Fire element, and so on. Seru
opponents appear only in the Mist and never in a field. If you fight a
Seru but fail to get its Magic, try fighting that Seru in another Mist
area.

Mysterious Statue

Narration: In strange script on the pedestal it reads, "Secrets of
Accessories."

1) I don't want to read any part of it
2) Read "About Accessories"
3) Read 'Where to Obtain"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I don't want to read any part of it

(nothing said)
======================================================================

2) Read "About Accessories"

Narration: In addition to weapons and armor, each character can wear up
to 3 accessories. Accessories provide skills useful in fighting and
traveling. There are two kinds of skills: Individual Skills, effective
only for the character possessing them, and Shared Skills, effective
for everyone! Each are listed in the Item menu, under "I" for
Individual and "A" for All.
======================================================================

3) Read "Where to Obtain"

Narration: Many accessories are sold at shops, but some can be very
expensive, so choose wisely. There are also accessories that are not
sold in any shops. These hidden accessories grant powerful skills and
can be found in the hands of unlikely opponents or in treasure chests
deep inside a dungeon. It's your job to search them out!

Fighting."

1) I don't want to read any part of it
2) Read "Attack Power & Equipment"
3) Read "Defense Power & Equipment"
4) Read "Abnormal Status"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I don't want to read any part of it

(nothing said)
======================================================================

2) Read "Attack Power & Equipment"

Narration: Attack Power [ATK] increases according to your weapons and
armor. Attack Power is displayed under Status and determines the
effectiveness of Arts. Attack Power is the sum of: character attack
power, Ra-Seru attack power, total equipment attack power, and
accessory attack power. Ra-Seru attack power increases when a Genesis
Tree is revived.
======================================================================

3) Read "Defense Power & Equipment"

Narration: There are two types of defense: Upper-body defense [UDF] and
Lower-body defense [LDF]. Upper-body defense is the sum of a
character's defensive power and the defensive power of head and body
gear. Lower-body defense is the sum of a character's defensive power
and the defensive power of body and leg gear.
======================================================================

4) Read "Abnormal Status"

Narration: Venom: Attack and defense powers decline as HP gradually
falls. Toxic: More dangerous than Venom. Numb: Temporarily unable to
move. Rot: Affected body parts can't be used in battle. Curse: Disables
Magic and are vulnerable to attacks. Stone: Unable to move. Must use
Medicine to recover.

Seru Monster: Gggrrr...

Narration: There is a sense of sadness in the eyes of the Seru.

Meta: Vahn! Take a good look. This is a human possessed by a Seru. I
have looked into this person's mind, the same way I spoke to your mind.
But the Seru controlling this person's spirit is too strong, and I
couldn't make out any words. The only way to return these people to
normal is to drive away the Mist.

{Vahn examines the Seru monster behind the cage}

Seru Monster: Growl!

Narration: From its clothes, this Seru seems to have been one of the
royal family.

Meta: Vahn, I have a feeling this Seru is King Drake. Look. There's a
small key around his neck. That must be the key to the Water Gate.

{Vahn opens the treasure chest in front of the cage}

that finds this." Do you wish to read it?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Vahn put back the letter.
======================================================================

1) Yes

                                  Letter:
                    I am King Drake III, King of Drake.
                         I know not who will read
                               this letter.
                     But anyone who makes it through
                        the Mist must have powers
                         greater than the Mist.
                       No doubt you have seen the
                     Seru monsters in this castle's
                                 dungeons.
                        Those monsters are in fact
                     my dear retainers and the people
                              of my kingdom.
                    When the Mist approached we tried
                        many ways to drive it back.
                    We even prayed at the Genesis Tree
                    of Mt. Rikuroa to the north. Legend
                       says the tree has the power to
                       save the human race. In the end
                       we decided to lock ourselves in
                         the dungeon and wear Seru,
                          surrendering to the Mist.
                        As Seru monsters, we should
                       survive on Drake water until the
                           day the Mist goes away.
                          We locked ourselves in the
                          dungeon so the Seru madness
                       would not force us to harm anyone.
                          So, traveler, I ask you to
                         drive away the Mist, as we
                           were powerless to do so.
                        You are our only hope for the
                           future -- the hope that
                                sustains us.

Meta: A wise decision. While you are sleeping, I will stand guard.

{The screen fades to black and in a few moments Vahn is seen standing
in darkness with Meta floating in front of him}

Meta: Vahn, I apologize for interrupting your dream. There is something
I must tell you about the Seru and my powers. That's right, the Seru.
They are horrible creatures. But the Seru themselves are not at fault.
The Mist is responsible for all of this. I have special powers to use
against the Seru. I can assimilate with a Seru that the Mist has made
mad. The special powers of the Seru will combine with my own, making me
a powerful weapon.

1) If Vahn has absorbed Gimard
2) If Vahn has not absorbed Gimard
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) If Vahn has absorbed Gimard

Meta: I have already absorbed the abilities of Gimard, the Fire Seru
you have fought. It is not always possible to absorb the abilities of a
Seru by fighting it. Nevertheless, let's try to fight as many Seru as
we can, and hope we absorb its powers.
======================================================================

2) If Vahn has not absorbed Gimard

Meta: I have not yet mastered any of the abilities of the Seru, but the
Fire Seru, Gimard, is here. Don't give up and only fight Gimard a few
times. Eventually we'll absorb his powers.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Meta: You can use the Seru abilities by expending MP. When to use it is
up to you. Just remember that MP is limited.

you looked like you were having a bad dream.

painful. Dreams tell you about the future.

Terra: Oh. I guess you just don't want to tell me about it. Listen to
me! You must always remember your dreams, no matter how painful they
may be. Dreams tell you about the future.

Terra: Alright, then. Time for practice! Come with me.

{Noa follows Terra}

Terra: Make it snappy! Noa, I have much to teach you. Now follow me!

{Terra heads into another area of the cave. Noa follows Terra and meets
with her again}

Terra: Noa, I have taught you much, but I wonder if it is sinking in.
So now it's time for a test. The first question is...when the Mist is
around you, which is the combination that results in chaos?

1) Seru and Ra-Seru
2) Ra-Seru and human
3) Seru and human
4) Human and animal
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Seru and Ra-Seru
2) Ra-Seru and human
4) Human and animal

Terra: Noa! Have you been paying any attention to what I've told you?
Now I'll ask you again.
======================================================================

3) Seru and human

Terra: Good. A Seru touched by the Mist begins to act on its own and
possess the human that uses it. So you must be careful. Now I will
leave you. I will be waiting up ahead.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Terra heads into another area of the cave. Noa follows Terra and meets
with her again}

Terra: Now for the second test. Listen carefully! What is it that, when
it is revived, uses powers from another world to push back the Mist?

1) The Book of Genesis
2) A Genesis Tree
3) A geneticist
4) A dandelion
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) The Book of Genesis
3) A geneticist
4) A dandelion

Terra: Noa! Have you been paying any attention to what I've told you?
Now I'll ask you again.
======================================================================

2) A Genesis Tree

Terra: That's right, Noa. Soon you will be entrusted with the reviving
of the Genesis Trees. How soon that day comes depends entirely on you.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Terra heads into another area of the cave. Noa follows her again}

Terra: Now for the last question. Listen very carefully. Which Genesis
Tree is closest to us?

1) Mt. Rikuaku
2) Mt. Rikuraku
3) Mt. Rirokua
4) Mt. Rikuroa
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Mt. Rikuaku
2) Mt. Rikuraku
3) Mt. Rirokua

Terra: Noa! Is there something wrong with your brain? Now I'll ask you
again.
======================================================================

4) Mt. Rikuroa

Terra: Correct! It's the Genesis Tree at Mt. Rikuroa! Mt. Rikuroa is
located south of this cave. Although now we are trapped inside Snowdrift
Cave, someday, someday...the day will come when you and I will go to Mt.
Rikuroa together!  Noa, I look forward to that day with eagerness. Now
come with me. After using the mind, it's time to use the body. Time for
training!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Terra heads into a separate area of the cave. Noa watches her leave
and then follows}

Terra: Listen to me, Noa. Now we're going to practice fighting. As I
have always said, never get careless during practice, or you'll get
hurt. Touch the Red Piura or Black Piura sticking out of those holes to
start fighting. If you're not confident, fight the Red Piura. If you're
confident, fight the Black Piura. Ready, Noa? Begin!

{Noa fights multiple Puera, honing her fighting skills. After she
finishes practice she and Terra head out to get something to eat}

Terra: Noa, you have improved greatly. Perhaps there is no more I can
teach you by spoken word. (Silence) Now it is time for me to tell you
everything. Noa, let's go over there. I must tell you something
important.

{The whole cave starts to tremble from a large earthquake, throwing Noa
and Terra around the floor}

Terra: (Silence) I think it's over. We've lived in this cave for some
time, but that's the biggest earthquake yet. ! Noa! The wind! The wind
is blowing! A hole must have opened in the cave. Be careful, Noa! It's
the Mist! They're out there, in the Mist! Noa! Quick! We must hurry.
We'll follow the wind to the Genesis Tree! Hurry, to Mt. Rikuroa!
Hurry, Noa! We've no time to lose! Follow me!

{Terra runs ahead of Noa back to camp. Noa runs after her and meets her
at a gaping hole in the wall}

Terra: Noa! Come here! It looks like there are Seru up ahead. I can
feel the wind blowing here. Do you know what that means, Noa? It means
we can go outside! Let's head for Mt. Rikuroa and the Genesis Tree.

{Noa and Terra travel into the opening that was made due to the
earthquake and find a way out of the cave. They start to head south
toward Mt. Rikuroa}

*******************************
Optional Event: The Mist Valley
*******************************

{Noa and Terra turn east into a valley covered with a very thick Mist}

Terra: Look carefully, Noa! Beyond that valley is where the Mist is
born. From there it flows out into this world. Though the Mist is too
thick to see clearly, there is a Mist Generator beyond the valley.
(Silence) (Silence)

{Terra collapses and Noa rushes over to her}

Terra: I'm sorry, Noa. Suddenly I feel a little ill. The Mist is too
thick. I'm sorry, but I don't think I can go any further. Let's not go
there now. Instead, let's head for the Genesis Tree of Mt. Rikuroa!

1) Terra, are you alright?
2) Let's destroy the Mist Generator!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Terra, are you alright?

Terra: Noa, you are such a good child. Don't worry about me. I'll feel
better once I get away from this place. Alright! On to Mt. Rikuroa! The
Genesis Tree awaits!
======================================================================

2) Let's destroy the Mist Generator!

Terra: Yes, you might be right. If we destroy the Mist Generator, the
Mist here will disappear. But I just can't go on. I'm sorry. In this
Mist, I'm so weak that I could never make it to the Mist Generator. So,
please, let's go to Mt. Rikuroa instead. We can destroy the Mist
Generator another day.

*If Noa tries to enter the Mist Valley again

Terra: Noa, I know the Mist Generator lies ahead, but our goal now is
to get to Mt. Rikuroa. Let's go back.

* If Noa tries to enter yet again

Terra: Noa, I know how badly you want to destroy the Mist Generator,
but...I'm too weak to go any further. So please, don't force me to do
what I can't.

* If Noa tries to enter the Mist once more

Terra: Noa! {Terra bites Noa and tackles her to the ground} (Silence)

{Noa and Terra climb their way up the mountain. They enter a cave
leading inside the mountain and walk a few paces forward until they are
stopped by a small earthquake. A piece of the mountain crashes down in
front of them}

Terra: Noa, this cave's foundation seems unstable.

{Noa and Terra continue on but are stopped by yet another earthquake.
Another piece of the mountain falls in front of them}

Terra: That was close, Noa. This cave won't hold much longer. We're
almost at the summit! Don't stop till we're there!

{Noa and Terra almost reach the cave exit}

Terra: Noa, I know that was rough, but hold out just a little longer.
Look! The exit is right there!

Terra: !

{A large Golem blocks the cave exit and pounds its chest}

Terra: Noa...it seems we must fight him if we wish to get out of the
cave.

+================+
+Mini-Boss: Golem+
+================+

{The Golem attacks Noa and Terra but is defeated}

+=======================+
+End of Mini-Boss Battle+
+=======================+

{The cave starts to rumble intensely}

Terra: !

Terra: Noa, the cave is about to collapse! Follow me!

{Noa and Terra run outside and the cave collapses immediately
afterward}

Terra: Noa! That was close! You did well! I envy you - you are always
so full of energy! I'm sorry, but I'm a little fatigued. Let me rest
here awhile.

{Noa and Terra rest while Noa gazes into the view of mountains beyond
her}

Terra: Noa, we've been together for a long time. Even in this horrible
environment, you've grown into a fine woman. I'm very proud of you. Now
I must tell you something important. Listen well. You may not know, but
wolves like me do not normally speak. I am actually a Seru, a Seru
attached to the head of this old wolf. I, Terra, who saved you from the
Mist when you were all alone and raised you. I'm a Seru!

{Noa rises up from the ground and stares at Terra}

Terra: But don't confuse me with those common Seru, driven mad by the
Mist. I may look like a Seru but I am a Ra-Seru! I am impervious to the
Mist. I wanted to watch over you, until you were a little older. But
that's not possible anymore. This wolf has reached the end of its life.
The wolf will die soon. And if I stay attached to it, I will die with
it.

{Noa rushes over to Terra}

Terra: That is why I brought you here, to this mountain. With the power
of the Genesis Tree at the summit, I can transfer from the wolf to you!
Then I won't have to leave you all alone. That is my plan. I have
decided to stay by your side until you find your real parents! Now,
this mean old wolf is fully rested! On to the summit!

{Noa and Terra travel into another cave. After navigating through this
cave they reach Mt. Rikuroa's summit}

Terra: Noa! This tree - It's the Genesis Tree! This brings back
memories! This is the tree through which I came to the human world. I
was sleeping inside this tree, then suddenly...I was awakened by the
sound of a baby's cry. That baby was you, Noa. Your body was too small
for me to attach myself to you. So instead, I chose this wolf. Now
that's enough talk of the past! Come on, Noa!

{Noa doesn't move}

Terra: Noa, there's nothing to fear. Come this way!

{Noa heads over to Terra when suddenly a voice resonates through the
air}

Zeto: Ha! Those Ra-Seru fools.

{A portal appears in the middle of the air and Zeto rises out of it}

Zeto: What eyesores they are. I will show them the consequences of
helping those pitiful humans...it was I, Zeto, who destroyed your
pitiful little camp! Had you submitted peacefully to the Mist and the
Seru, your suffering would have ended! So be it! If you insist on
struggling so miserably, then I will finish you off now! Attack,
Caruban! Rip them to shreds with your fangs!

{From out in the distance a large Seru with the body of a lion and
wings on its back swoops over to Mt. Rikuroa's summit and encircles Noa
and Terra}

Terra: You, Seru slave of evil! Be smart and go away now! This world is
for human beings of compassion!

Zeto: Caruban! Kill them!

{Caruban attacks Terra and cripples her. Noa rushes to her side while
Caruban continues to encircle them in mid-air}

Terra: Noa...I'm sorry...my mistake...I was careless...my
strength...unfortunately...is nearly...depleted...

Zeto: Ha ha ha! That was too easy! You don't fight as tough as you
talk! Caruban! This girl is yours. Do with her as you please! Ah ha ha
ha!

{Zeto disappears into his portal. The screen fades to black}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Vahn is seen running up the side of Mt. Rikuroa}

Meta: Let's hurry to the top of the mountain! Our friends...our friends
must be there!

{Vahn opens the wooden gate blocking the path to the summit and
ventures up the mountain. Eventually Vahn and Meta arrive at the summit
to see Caruban encircling Noa}

Terra: (Concentrating) Meta...it's Meta! Meta is here. Meta, I'm glad
you found yourself a nice child, too. Vahn? His name is Vahn? Vahn,
please, help this child...help Noa.

Meta: Vahn! Let's go!

{Vahn rushes over to Noa's side and prepares to fight Caruban}

Meta: Noa! Let me help you!

+=============+
+Boss: Caruban+
+=============+

{Vahn and Terra fight the deadly Caruban and together they destroy it}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Terra: Noa...you have done well. Now, please...take me to the Genesis
Tree.

Meta: Vahn, let's help them.

{Vahn walks over to Terra's body and helps Noa carry it to the Genesis
Tree's trunk. Noa sits next to Terra's body and pets her}

Meta: Alright, Vahn. Let's give our strength to the Genesis Tree!

Narration: Vahn gently touched the trunk of the Genesis Tree. Vahn
feels a gentle warmth in the palm of his hand.

Meta: Awaken, Genesis Tree! Recall the instant that the heavens and
earth were born!

{Noa watches as energy from Meta's body rises and enters the Genesis
Tree. The tree starts to glow and grows from its withered state into a
healthy Genesis Tree. Its powers spread toward Drake Castle and one by
one the Seru Monsters turn back into normal humans}

Terra: This power is just what I needed! Alright, Noa, let's go!

{Terra rises up from the wolf's head and attaches itself to Noa's left
hand}

                                 Terra:
                           Noa, listen well.
                               You and I
                              are now one.
                            You now possess
                           magnificent powers.
                          You and Vahn must go
                       on a journey to search out
                           the Genesis Trees.
                      The journey may be difficult,
                            but remember that
                       I will always be with you.

Narration: With the power of the Genesis Tree, Meta's level increased
to Lv2.

{The wolf trots away from the Genesis Tree. Noa tries to follow it but
is stopped by Terra}

Terra: No, Noa! You mustn't follow her! The wolf is a proud animal.
She's going to find a place where she can die alone. So, Vahn...

{Noa kicks the ground nervously, avoiding eye contact with Vahn}

Noa: Vahn, will you take me with you?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Noa: (Silence)

Meta: Vahn! You must be nice to her!

Noa: Vahn...Can I go with you?

a. Yes
b. No
======================================================================

b. No

Noa: (Brooding)

{Noa turns around and starts to make shapes on the ground with her
finger}

Meta: Vahn! You must be nice to her!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Noa: Good. So I won't be alone. I'll be with you, Vahn.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Meta: Vahn, let's return to Drake Castle. I'm sure the people freed
from the Mist are waiting for you.

{Vahn and Noa head down the summit on their way to Drake Castle}

Noa: Vahn! Voices! I hear a whole lot of voices from inside! Is it
safe? Will we be okay?

1) Ha ha ha! Don't worry!
2) Be careful, Noa!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Ha ha ha! Don't worry!

Noa: Alright! I won't worry since you're here, Vahn.
======================================================================

2) Be careful, Noa!

Noa: I will. But I'm not scared, because you're here, Vahn.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn and Noa walk through the Mountain Gate to see King Drake and two
guards waiting for them}

King Drake: Travelers, have you driven away the Mist?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

King Drake: So what we heard was true!
======================================================================

2) No

King Drake: So modest! Yet there is no need to be, as we already know.
Shortly before you arrived, a peddler came and told us everything!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

King Drake: One look at the shining Seru on your arms and I understand
how this miracle occurred. I am Drake III, king of this castle. You
have my deepest gratitude.

Noa: Um, can I ask you something?

King Drake: What is it, young lady?

Noa: There's some weird hair growing under your nose.

King Drake: What? Oh! Ha, ha, ha! Young lady, this is...this is called
a moustache.

Noa: Whiskers? Whiskers! How weird.

King Drake: Oh? Actually I am quite fond of my moustache. Ha, ha, ha!
So be it. Now I wish to hear more about what happened. Young travelers,
come over here.

{Vahn and Noa follow King Drake to his throne room and tell him their
stories}

King Drake: (Silence) Hmm! What an amazing story. So Vahn was heading
to Biron Monastery in search of Mei's mother. My order to open the
water gate must have caused you great hardship! I am sorry for that.
But here, take this. It is the Water Key.

{A knight takes the Water Key from King Drake and gives it to Vahn}

Narration: Vahn now has the Water Key!

{Vahn bows to King Drake and starts to head off with Noa}

King Drake: Vahn! Noa! Wait! I have a favor to ask you.

{Vahn and Noa walk back to King Drake}

King Drake: I know that you both are on separate quests. But I ask you
to remember the horrible Mist that covers the earth. And that those
like you, chosen by the Ra-Seru, have a holy mission. I have not the
authority to command you. You have saved Rim Elm and Drake Castle from
the Mist...but the suffering will not truly end until the whole world
is free of the Mist!

Noa: Mr. Drake, what does "suffer" mean? Are you talking about dinner?

King Drake: No, ha ha ha! That's "supper." "Suffer" means to be very
sad.

Noa: Suffering is when sad things happen...no! I don't want any more
sad things to happen! I hate suffering! Vahn, that means we have to
destroy the Mist! That will stop the suffering.

King Drake: Yes, I agree with Noa. Ha, ha, ha! I will detain you no
further. Please continue on your journey. I will pray hard for a safe
trip. Good luck!

{Vahn and Noa reach the exterior of the castle to see an open market
place}

Noa: Vahn...so many...so many...people! Vahn, look! Look at all the
people! They all look so happy. Now I feel kind of happy, too. I want
to talk to them! I want to talk about happy things! Vahn? Do you think
they'll want to talk to me?

1) Sure, they'll be happy to.
2) Probably not
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Sure, they'll be happy to.

Noa: Yeah, you're right. I know they would! I'll see you later. I'm
going!
======================================================================

2) Probably not

Noa: You're so mean! You're wrong! I'm fun to be with! I know they
would like talking to me! I'm going to talk to that person over there!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Noa runs off to speak with the Arms Dealer}

Noa: Vahn, look at this! This is so cool!

Arms Dealer: Young lady, that's a Fighting Robe. It doesn't just look
good. It'll protect those pretty arms of yours.

Noa: Wow! That's great! A "Fighting Robe"! How cool!

Arms Dealer: Ha, ha, ha! What a charming young lady! I'll give you a
good price.

Noa: OK!

{Noa takes the Fighting Robe and tries to run off with it}

Arms Dealer: Hey, hey! Wait a minute! You gotta pay for that! Money!
You know, money!

Noa: Money? What's that? What's money? Vahn, tell me what money is!

1) What you need to buy things
2) What you get for killing monsters
3) I don't know. Sorry
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) What you need to buy things
2) What you get for killing monsters

Noa: Oh. I don't really get it. I guess I'm just a goofy kid. Oh well.
OK! Here, you can have this back!

{Noa gives back the Fighting Robe to the Arms Dealer}

Arms Dealer: Y-You don't want it?

Noa: Nope! I still don't know about money, so I don't want it!
======================================================================

3) I don't know. Sorry

Arms Dealer: Hmmf. For the heroes who saved Drake Castle, you don't
know much, do you? Money is what you trade to buy things from stores
like mine. The more monsters you beat, the more money you get. You know
G's, right? That's money! Oh well, if you don't know about money, you
don't know. OK, I'll tell you what. I'll give you the Fighting Robe for
free! As a present from me to you.

Narration: Noa now has the Fighting Robe.

Noa: Wow! Thanks, Mister! You're great!

{Noa blows the Arms Dealer a kiss}

Arms Dealer: Ah! How embarrassing. But next time, young lady, you have
to pay with money, alright?

Noa: Uh-huh! Oh! I want to go over there! Let's talk to those people!

Arms Dealer: What a great kid! You'd better take good care of that
young lady! Ha, ha, ha!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn walks over to Noa who is at the Items Shop}

Noa: Yeah, uh-huh. Vahn, I'm almost done talking. Hold on a minute.
Yeah...uh-huh. Thank you, Mister Supply Dealer! I won't forget! OK, now
I'm going to give you a test about supplies. Which item restores your
HP the most when you use it?

1) Healing Berry
2) Healing Flower
3) Healing Leaf
4) Life Water
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) Healing Flower
3) Healing Leaf
4) Life Water

Noa: Hmm? That's not what I heard. Funny...
======================================================================

1) Healing Berry

Noa: Right! Wow, you're smart, Vahn!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noa: Alright, next question. What does the Door of Light let you do?

1) Return to Rim Elm.
2) Zip over to a town you've been to.
3) Escape from the dungeon.
4) Find happiness and go to heaven.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Return to Rim Elm.
2) Zip over to a town you've been to.
4) Find happiness and go to heaven.

Noa: Wrong! Vahn, did you forget everything you know?
======================================================================

3) Escape from the dungeon.

Noa: That's right! Wow, Vahn! You know everything!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noa: Alright, then, last question! What is this supply dealer's name?

1) Mei
2) Wats
3) Lezam
4) Tetsu
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Mei
3) Lezam
4) Tetsu

Noa: Sorry. I guess this question was just too hard for you.
======================================================================

2) Wats

Noa: Wow, Vahn! How did you know that? You're so incredible! Very good!

Noa: Yeah! Oh! I want to go over there! Let's talk to those people!

{Noa rushes over to the Inn}

Noa: Hey, Vahn. They said this is called an "inn." What's an inn for?

1) A place for sleeping.
2) A place that restores HP and MP.
3) Uum, I don't know.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) A place for sleeping.

Noa: A place where you sleep? Oh! That's boring!

2) A place that restores HP and MP.

Noa: Really? Well, let's stay here if we go someplace far away and get
tired.
======================================================================

3) Uum, I don't know.

Noa:
Hey! Vahn...you have a strange look on your face.

Noa: Hmmf! {Noa starts jumping up and down} Liar! You're a liar, Vahn!
You said you wanted to go with me! So that makes you a liar! Waa...

{Vahn walks over to Noa}

Noa: Waahh! Waaahh! I don't want to be by myself! I want... {Noa gets
up and stops crying} Even if you say no, I...I...I'm going with you!

Noa: I'm Noa! Nice to meet you!

Tetsu: Noa, huh? And this child, too, wears a Ra-Seru, I see. Noa,
shall I teach you a Biron Art to use on your mission?

1) Yes, please.
2) I wish to rely on my own abilities.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) I wish to realy on my own abilities.

Tetsu: I see. True, one must combine various commands during a fight.
And one can also discover new lethal techniques by chance. May Biron be
with you!

1) Yes, please.

Tetsu:
Good! That's the spirit! Now, Noa! Listen carefully. (Explaining)

a. If Noa knows the Art 'Acrobatic Blitz'

Tetsu:

out there. Always strive to perfect your techniques! May Biron be with
you!

{Vahn and Noa enter Mei's house}

Noa: I'm Noa, a friend of Vahn's!

Mei: Oh, I see. Noa, so you're Vahn's friend. I'm pleased to meet you.
I'm Mei, I'm Vahn's friend, too.

*At the West or East Mist Valley entrance

{Noa runs toward the valley with Vahn right behind her}

Noa: Vahn, look! The Mist! Come see it!

Meta: Just beyond this valley is the Mist Generator!

Terra: The Mist produced by the Mist Generator spreads out into the
areas beyond the valley.

Noa: I want to destroy the Mist Generator! I wanna get rid of the Mist!

Terra: Noa, we should slow down!

{Noa shakes her head no}

Meta: The Mist here is too thick! My power is almost too weak to keep
us from succumbing to the Mist!

{Noa pouts}

Terra: If we only had a little more Genesis Tree power! Just a little
more!

{Noa's eyes start to water}

Noa: Vahn, let's find another Genesis Tree! If we find it...Then we
could pass through here and destroy the Mist Generator!

* Vahn and Noa try to enter again

Meta: Vahn, you must be patient! I know the Mist Generator lies ahead,
but I'm too weak to go any further. Let's find another Genesis Tree.
Reviving that will weaken the Mist enough so we can get through.

* Vahn and Noa try to enter once more

Meta: Vahn, I know how badly you want to destroy the Mist Generator,
but...Let's focus our efforts on reviving another Genesis Tree.

{Vahn and Noa reach Biron Monastery and enter the large front door.
There is a lever in the middle of a room in between two large fans in
the floor and a small door ahead of them}

1) Option One: Pull the lever
2) Option Two: Press the button on the door
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**************************
Option One: Pull the lever
**************************

{Vahn operates the lever, causing the fans beneath the floor to blow the
Mist away from the area and open the front door. A man runs out the
door that opened}

Man: I don't believe it! I rush out thinking that some Seru are up to
no good, and I find human visitors! Well, then, come with me! I'll
introduce you to everyone at Biron.
======================================================================

****************************************
Option Two: Press the button on the door
****************************************

Narration: There is a large button on the door. Do you wish to press
it?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Vahn did not press the button.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Narration: Vahn pressed the button.

Voice: Who's there? If you're human, say something now.

a) Yes
b) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a) Yes

Voice: I don't believe it! A human customer! Alright, then! Move the
lever that's right by you. The Mist inside the airtight chamber will
disappear and this door will open automatically. The lever by your back
activates a device that gets rid of the Mist in the airtight chamber.
======================================================================

b) No

Voice: (Silent contemplation) Ha! Ha, ha, ha. Ha, ha, ha, ha! You're
funny! I like you! Move that lever. It will suck out the Mist from the
room, and open the door. The lever by your back activates a device that
gets rid of the Mist in the airtight chamber.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn and Noa enter the monastery to see a group of Biron monks
training}

Man: I'm so glad you came. It's been a long time since Biron Monastery
has had any real human visitors. I never thought anyone would come here
while I was guarding the gate. You really surprised me! Wait! They're
in the middle of training. When it's over, I'll introduce you to Master
Zopu.

Zopu: Stop right there! Good! We seem to have visitors. What a rare
treat. That's enough training for now. You may now attend to your
individual tasks.

Monks: Yes, sir!

{All monks disband except for two monks who were leading the training.
The monk guarding the gate walks over to Master Zopu to announce Vahn
and Noa's arrival}

Zopu: Well, well. Welcome to Biron Monastery. Now, then. Let me get a
good look at you.

Noa: I am Noa! With me here is Vahn! Good to meet you, old man!

{The monk in blue walks forward}

Master Teacher: How dare you call Master Zopu "old man"!

Zopu: Ha, ha, ha! This young lady means no ill will. Master Teacher,
stand aside.

Master Teacher: Yes, sir!

{Master Teacher leaves into the room behind him}

Zopu: I see. Vahn and Noa. How do you do? I am Zopu. Hmm. Your eyes are
keen. And you have Seru...alright, then! We welcome you here. Tonight,
we shall have a party in your honor. Until then, you may make
yourselves at home inside the monastery.

{Master Zopu leaves into the same entrance that Master Teacher left
into previously. The monk wearing red and black walks over to Vahn and
Noa}

Songi: Those things on your arms...are those Seru?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Songi: So that's a Seru! I hear they give their wearer great strength.

Noa: That's right!

Songi: Ha, ha, ha! I want one of those Seru!
======================================================================

2) No

Songi: Hey, don't lie to me. I already know everything.

Noa: I'm not lying! This is no ordinary Seru! It's a Ra-Seru!

Songi: I see. A Ra-Seru, eh? I definitely want a Seru like that!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Songi: I am Songi. Pleased to meet you. If you have an extra Seru, then
let me have it! Ha, ha, ha, ha!

{Songi heads into the entrance that Master Zopu and Master Teacher
walked into earlier}

Noa: What a weirdo.

{Vahn and Noa head into the same room where a large shrine of Biron is
held. As they try to walk up the stairs at the side of the shrine a
woman with green hair runs down the stairs}

Woman: Is that you, Vahn? Vahn? It is you, Vahn! Don't you remember me?

1) Uh...Maya?
2) I don't remember
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Uh...Maya?

Maya: That's right! I'm Maya from Rim Elm! Vahn, what a good memory!
I'm impressed. You were still so young when I left the village.
======================================================================

2) I don't remember

Maya: It's me, Maya! Maya from Rim Elm! Vahn, don't you remember? Well,
that's understandable. You were still so young when I left the village.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Maya: When Master Zopu told me a youth called Vahn had come, I hurried
here. I knew it was you! I knew it right away! You look just like Val
when he was young. I'm so happy. Because of the Mist, I thought I would
never see anyone from Rim Elm again. You two are amazing! You must have
had a hard time getting here. Oh, I almost forgot! I'm sorry, but
Master Zopu asked me to help with the preparations for the party. I
have to go now. There are so many things I want to ask you about, but
that will have to wait until tonight. I want you to tell me about
yourself, and about your village. Bye for now. I'll see you later!

{Maya returns back up the stairs}

Noa: So that's Maya, the one you've been looking for. Hmm. What energy
she has. I couldn't get a word in. But I'm so glad I finally met her!
So glad she's well!

***********************************
Optional Event: The Woman's Bedroom
***********************************

{Vahn and Noa reach the womens bedroom within the monastery}

Monk: Yes, sir! If you're looking for Maya, I believe she's in this
room. But this is a woman's bedroom. Men are forbidden. You may not
enter!

Noa: Oh, you're horrible! What are you looking at? I'm a woman! I'm a
woman, so I can go in!

Monk: I don't mind you, Noa, but Vahn will have to wait here.

{The monk opens the door and steps aside}

Noa: OK! I'm going to talk to Maya.

{Noa runs in and closes the door behind her. The monk steps back in
front of the door}

Monk: (Silence) (Silence) (Silence) Umm...It sounds pretty lively in
there. I can hear a lot of laughter. Maya is very loving and
hardworking. She's such a cheerful person. The monks of Biron think of
her like a mother. The Biron Monastery doesn't allow Seru or women...I
guess the Mist has changed that rule.

{The door bursts open and pushes the monk aside. Noa comes out with a
smile on her face}

Noa: I like Maya, too! She's a good person! Hey, is something wrong?

1) No, I'm happy for you!
2) Did you tell her about Juno or Mei?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) No, I'm happy for you!

Noa: Yeah! I've heard a lot of stories from Maya! But right now, Maya
is too busy preparing for the party. She sends you her regards.
======================================================================

2) Did you tell her about Juno or Mei?

Noa: Uh-Oh! I'm sorry! I forgot about that. But you can tell her later.
I wanted to tell Maya, but she was so busy getting ready for the party.
I didn't want to be in her way. You can tell her later!

Noa's Dream #2
**************

{Vahn and Noa rest inside the bedroom in the Monastery. As Noa dreams,
she lies curled up as an orb shines above her}

Orb: Noa...Where are you? I miss you...I want to see you.

{The orb disappears. Noa wakes up and looks around as the orb
reappears}

Noa: Who's there? Who is that? Whose voice is that?

Orb: Noa, my dear...Mother can't hear you very well. Mother can't see
you very well.

Noa: M-Mother? Are you my mother?

Mother: Noa, I want to see you.

{The orb flies off in a different direction and Noa begins to chase it}

Mother: It's so dark here...Freezing cold...I'm...in the deepest
Mist...

Noa: The Mist! You're in the deepest Mist?

{The orb goes heads in a different direction and Noa chases after it
once more}

Mother: Mother is...at the source...of the Mist...

{The orb flies even farther away and gets smaller before finally
disappearing}

Noa: Where? Where are you? Where are you Mother?
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Vahn and Noa head into Master Zopu's chamber after speaking with the
people in Biron Monastery}

Zopu: You said your names were Vahn and Noa, right? Did you listen to
what the people of Biron had to say?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Zopu: Make yourselves at home. Everyone here at the monastery wants to
talk to the visitors.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Zopu: I see. Well, then...before the party begins, tell me what you
heard. Tell me what you heard about the Seru and about the Mist.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{The screen fades and transitions to that night where the party is
being held in the main hall. Vahn and Noa are speaking with Maya}

Maya: So, that's what happened. Juno, he...he was killed by a Seru.
(Silent contemplation) (Still silent) So Vahn, you came all the way
here for Mei's sake. (Silent contemplation)

Noa: Maya, don't cry! Cheer up! It's not like you to cry like that!

Maya: That's sweet of you to try to cheer me up. Still...it's all so
frustrating that I couldn't be by Juno's side. I loved him so! All
along I thought I would see him again someday, and now it's too late.
I'm so sad! I'm sorry, Vahn. I'm sorry, Noa. I'm sorry for crying like
this.

Noa: Maya, come to Rim Elm with us! Mei is there!

Maya: I'm sorry, Noa, I just want to be alone now. I need time alone to
think.

{Maya leaves the party and heads back to the womens' chamber}

Noa: When Maya's sad it makes me sad, too. Sad and lonely, Vahn.

{Vahn and Noa go over to Master Teacher to speak with him}

Master Teacher: Yes, sir! (Contemplation) Those are Seru on your arms,
aren't they?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Master Teacher: What? Not Seru but Ra-Seru? Don't be foolish. A Seru is
a Seru. I don't like it. I despise those creatures and those who depend
on them!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Master Teacher: I don't like it. I despise those creatures and those
who depend on them!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn and Noa find Songi}

Songi: A Seru that's not affected by the Mist...what I wouldn't do for
one! They say that a Ra-Seru sleeps inside something called the Genesis
Tree. With a Seru like that, I'd show Master Teacher who's really boss.
Ha, ha, ha! Anyway, don't you mind me.

{Master Zopu enters the room}

Zopu: I just saw Maya walking around crying. You didn't tell me before
but I want you to be honest with me now. Vahn, Noa. You two came here
to take Maya back to Rim Elm, am I right?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Zopu: Such forthrightness! Ha, ha, ha! That is good. Young people
should be frank.
======================================================================

2) No

Zopu: Ha, ha, ha! You can't hide anything from me! You young people
should be more honest!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Zopu: I, too, shall speak frankly. I have a favor to ask of you. I have
heard that you used that Ra-Seru to revive the Genesis Trees in Rim Elm
and in Mt. Rikuroa. You rid those places of the accursed Mist.
Actually, there are two Genesis Trees near the Biron Monastery. Will
you revive them as well?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Zopu: We at Biron will help you in every way we can. I therefore
implore you! Please! Will you awaken the Genesis Trees near the
Monastery?
======================================================================

1) Yes

Zopu: Ah, I thank you both! I must tell everyone immediately.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Zopu stands on the platform in the middle of the room}

Zopu: All of you! Listen! They have just agreed to revive the Genesis
Trees!

Everyone: Hurray! Hurray for Vahn! A toast to Noa!

Zopu: Once revived, the Genesis Trees will rid us of the horrible Mist!
This is our chance! We must all help these brave visitors. The Genesis
Trees are in separate forests north of here, in West and East Voz.
Vahn, tell me, which forest will you go to first?

1) West Voz Forest, in the northwest
2) East Voz Forest, in the northeast
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) West Voz Forest, in the northwest

Zopu: West Voz Forest. I see. Yes, that forest is closer to the origin
of the Mist. Yes, that is a wise decision. Master Teacher! Master
Teacher, are you there?

{Master Teacher rushes forth at his summons}

Master Teacher: Yes, sir!

Zopu: Master Teacher, you will accompany these two to West Voz Forest!

Master Teacher: B-But...

Zopu: Master Teacher! An elder's order is the same as a command from
Biron!

Master Teacher: Y-Yes, sir!

Songi: Master Zopu! Have you forgotten me?

Zopu: What is it, Songi?

Songi: If Master Teacher is going to West Voz Forest, then I will go to
East Voz Forest! I will go there to make sure that the Genesis Tree is
safe.

Zopu: Songi, it is so unusual for you to volunteer like this! But that
is good! I will give you monks to command. I am counting on you, Songi!

Songi: Yes, sir!

Zopu: Now, then. Night has fallen. Let the party end.

{The screen fades to black}

Off-Screen: Ha, ha, ha! They're all fools!

{The screen cuts to Songi standing by himself in the main hall}

Songi: I'm so brilliant! Once I get rid of those two brats and that
macho moron...I'll get the Ra-Seru from the Genesis Tree in East Voz
Forest! Ha, ha, ha...! I can't stop laughing!
======================================================================

2) East Voz Forest, in the northeast

Zopu: Ah, since East Voz Forest is farther from the Mist's source,
perhaps its Genesis Tree is safe.

Songi: Hey, wait a minute!

Zopu:
What is it, Songi?

Songi: I'll go to East Voz Forest for you! I know my way around there.

Zopu: But Songi, you do not have a Ra-Seru.

Songi: My point exactly! Vahn and Noa each have their own Ra-Seru.
That's why they should go to West Voz Forest, where the Mist is
thicker.

Zopu: Hmm. I see. What you say makes sense. Alright, I give my
permission! Vahn, Noa. I am sorry, but I must ask you to go to West Voz
Forest. Master Teacher! Master Teacher, are you there?

{Master Teacher rushes forth at his summons}

Master Teacher: Yes, sir!

Zopu: Master Teacher, you will accompany these two to West Voz Forest!

Master Teacher: B-But...

Zopu: Master Teacher! An elder's order is the same as a command from
Biron!

Master Teacher: Y-Yes, sir!

Zopu: Now, then. Night has fallen. Let the party end.

{The screen fades to black}

Off-Screen: Ha, ha, ha! They're all fools!

{The scene changes to Songi standing by himself in the main hall}

Songi: My strategy worked. The Ra-Seru must be in the first forest they
picked, East Voz. Now it's mine to take! Ha, ha, ha!

{The scene transitions to the shrine room. Songi leads three monks as
Master Teacher stands in front of Vahn and Noa}

Zopu: May Biron bless Songi on his journey to East Voz Forest!

Songi: Thank you! Leave everything to me!

{Songi and his group of monks head out toward East Voz Forest}

Zopu: May Biron also bless Master Teacher and our two vistors on their
journey to West Voz! Vahn, Noa. Good luck to you both!

{Vahn, Noa and Master Teacher walk a little ways toward the left set of
stairs}

Noa: Hey, Master Teacher, can I ask you something?

Master Teacher: What?

Noa: "Master Teacher" is a weird name.

Master Teacher: It's not a name, it's a title!

Noa: So "Master Teacher" isn't your name? Then what is your name?

Master Teacher: Since you are not Biron monks and need not call me
Master Teacher, I will tell you. My name is...Gala!

Noa: Gala...that's an interesting name.

Gala: Well don't get too friendly. I hate Seru!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala take the northwestern path from the monastery and
journey toward West Voz Forest}

************************************************
Optional Event: With the Monk at the Mist Valley
************************************************

{Vahn Noa and Gala reach the valley of Mist}

Gala: This is the place! The Mist is so thick! It's full of a warped
madness and the presence of evil! The Mist is flowing from a strange
castle beyond this valley!

Terra: This valley is the passageway for the Mist created by the Mist
Generator.

Noa: Terra, can't we go on ahead?

Terra: I'm sorry, Noa, I know I'm a Ra-Seru, but I don't have the
strength now...

Noa: I know! I'll find the Genesis Tree and make you stronger! Then you
could get through here with no problem!

{Gala walks over to Noa}

Gala: ? Who...W-Who are you talking to?

{Noa looks at Vahn curiously and then back at Gala}

Noa: To Terra!

{Gala steps back}

Gala: A Seru? You can talk to a Seru?

Noa: Uh-huh! Terra's nice! She's a good Seru!

Gala: You're so strange. You give me the creeps - - both of you! But no
matter! Now, on to West Voz Forest, as Zopu instructed us!

Noa: OK! I'll do my best!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala turn back}

******************
End Optional Event

*********************************
Optional Event: Ancient Wind Cave
*********************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head north and enter a cave with a river that flows
out of it. They see a door within the cave}

Narration: The door won't open! But...It sounds like there is someone
on the other side of the door. Do you wish to knock?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Vahn did not knock!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Narration: Vahn knocked on the door!

Old Man: There's no one here! No one!

*Vahn knocks again

Old Man: I said there's no one here! The Mist is outside. There can't
be any humans out there. We're just hearing things! No one can go out
until the Mist is gone, and no one must open this door!

*Vahn knocks again

Old Man: You're starting to irritate me. I'm not going to answer you
any more.

Noa: Oh, I want to go in there! I want to go in! {Noa starts pulling on
the door} Open up! Open the door! Open the door!

Old Man: (Silence)

Noa: Vahn, it's no use.

*Vahn knocks again

Old Man: (Silence)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala discover large double doors made of stone in the
back of the northeast side of the cave}

Narration: The door is locked and won't open!

{Vahn tries to open it a second time}

Gala: What are you doing? No amount of brute strength can open that
door.

{They give up for the time being and head to West Voz Forest}

******************
End Optional Event
******************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala arrive at West Voz Forest. Within the forest they
find a Fertilizer in a treasure chest and later arriveat a gorge
blocking their way. A strange plant lies in front of the gorge}

Narration: Small blades of grass sway.

Noa: What weird grass. Vahn, is it edible?

Gala: You guys don't know anything, do you? That's called Bridge Grass.
It's tiny now, but it'll be big enough to span a gorge and strong
enough to walk on. And, no, it's not edible!

Noa: Oh. So we can't eat it. Oh, hey, I know! Vahn, Gala, we got
Fertilizer from the treasure chest, right? Let's give it to the Bridge
Grass! It might grow faster that way!

Gala: Hmm. I thought you were just a fool, but that's a good idea.

Noa: You're mean, Gala! Boo-hoo!

Narration: The blades of Bridge Grass are swaying. Do you wish to use
the Fertilizer?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Vahn did nothing.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Narration: Vahn poured the Fertilizer at the base of the Bridge Grass.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{The Bridge Grass grows and crosses the gorge. Vahn, Noa and Gala walk
across it and travel through the forest until they reach a wilted and
transparent Genesis Tree}

Gala: This? This is a Genesis Tree? This dead, rotting tree doesn't
look like it has the power to drive away the Mist. But it doesn't
matter to me. Vahn, hurry up and do whatever you came here to do.

Noa: There's something wrong! Vahn, there's something wrong with this
Genesis Tree! This is different from Mt. Rikuroa's Genesis Tree! Terra,
what's going on?

Terra: (Silence) We were too late. The poison of the Mist has killed
this Genesis Tree.

{Noa starts to cry}

Noa: The Genesis Tree is dead?! But I thought you and Meta could give
life to the Genesis Tree!

Meta: Regrettably, this one is too far gone for us to help it.

Noa: No!

Gala: In other words, we came all the way out here for naught! There's
nothing we can do now. Let's stop wasting time and get back to Biron
Monastery.

{A flash of light shrines from the dead Genesis Tree and a small figure
can be seen}

Gala: Hey!

Noa: Vahn! Something's glowing! Look! It's glowing!

Meta: That glow! That's the glow of a Ra-Seru Egg! It's a Ra-Seru Egg!

Terra: How fortunate! At least the Ra-Seru Egg still survives! Meta and
I will combine our powers and call the Ra-Seru Egg to us.

{Vahn and Terra raise their arms and use the powers of Meta and Terra
to call forth the Ra-Seru Egg}

Meta: Vahn! Now get the Ra-Seru Egg!

Narration: Vahn feels the warmth of life at his fingertips.

{The Ra-Seru Egg shrinks in size until it can fit within the palm of
Vahn's hand}

Narration: Vahn now has the Ra-Seru Egg!

Meta: Vahn, the Ra-Seru Egg needs the power of a healthy Genesis Tree.
Take good care of the Ra-Seru Egg until then.

Noa: I can't wait to see what kind of Ra-Seru comes out of the egg!

Gala: West Voz Forest's Genesis Tree was dead...I wonder how Songi
fared in East Voz Forest.

{At these words a gigantic flash of light erupts through West Voz
Forest}

Gala: What?

{A loud noise shakes through the forest}

Gala: That sound and light came from the direction of Biron Monastery!

Noa: I wonder what happened.

Gala: Vahn, the Monastery may be in trouble. We must hurry back there!

{The trio enters Biron Monastery to find bodies lying all over the
ground. Mist is flowing everywhere}

Gala: It's the Mist. Why is the Mist in the Monastery? What on earth
happened? I'll go on ahead and see what's going on.

{Gala leaves Vahn and Noa and rushes to a body on the floor. After
checking the body he rushes to the open door on the left side of the
room}

Noa: Vahn! It's the Seru! I smell the Seru!

{Vahn and Noa run through the Mist infected hallways and knock on the
door leading to the kitchen}

Off-Screen: (Silent contemplation) Who is it? Could it be...is that
you, Vahn?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Off-Screen: (Silent contemplation)
======================================================================

1) Yes

Off-Screen: That voice! It's Vahn! Wait just one moment while I unlock
the door. Quickly! Hurry inside before the Seru monsters come!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{They enter the kitchen and see Master Zopu}

Zopu: Well, Vahn and Noa. I'm glad you reached us safely. I just heard
what happened from Master Teacher. So the Genesis Tree of West Voz
Forest was already dead. That's too bad. As you can see, things here
are a mess. That Songi betrayed us! The monastery wall was destroyed
with a great blast. Then came Songi and many Seru. The Mist came in and
caught us off guard. There were so many Seru monsters. Songi had a Seru
on his arm. That Seru may have been controlling him. We barely made it
here alive. Such a pitiful story.

{Noa rushes to the other end of the room}

Noa: Zopu...what about Gala? Where is Gala?

Zopu: When he heard that Songi had done this, he ran off in a rage.
Maybe he went to look for monks who survived the attack...or to track
down Songi. There's nothing I can do now. Nothing. What a disgrace I
am!

{Noa rushes toward Zopu, hopping up and down in front of him}

Noa: Don't cry, Zopu! I'll fight hard, so don't cry, Zopu! Vahn, let's
get rid of the Mist! Let's drive the Mist from Biron!

{Vahn and Noa leave the kitchen and see that the door to the woman's
bedroom is wide open. Vahn and Noa run inside and find a Seru monster
with green hair}

Seru Monster: Grrawww!

{The Seru monster runs to the other end of the room}

Noa: Vahn! It's a Seru! A Seru monster! Gasp! Oh no! Arrgh! Maya! It's
Maya! She's turned into a Seru! Maya, wait!

{Noa tries to pull the Seru off of Maya's body}

Noa: Maya, I'll get that Seru off you. Wait! I'll take it off!

Terra: Noa! Stop!

{Noa lets go of the Seru}

Noa: But...

Terra: If you rip it off her like that, she'll die!

Noa: Why? I don't understand!

Terra: Listen, Noa. Listen carefully! You should never remove Seru from
a human when the Mist is around. The Seru and human are one, so if you
do that they'll die. There's only one way to free a human who's turned
into a Seru monster. And that is to get rid of the Mist! You said
there's a Genesis Tree in East Voz Forest, right?

Noa: Yeah.

Terra: If you want to help Maya, you have to awaken the Genesis Tree
there.

Noa: Then Maya will turn back into a human?

Terra: Noa, I would never lie to you.

Noa: Maya, I promise...I promise to destroy the Mist!

{Vahn and Noa head to the passageway toward East Voz Forest. As they
are about to go beyond the fan room a voice stops them}

Gala: Wait a moment, both of you.

{Vahn and Noa turn around and Gala runs over to them}

Gala: I checked the entire monastery. Everyone's either dead or changed
into Seru. It can't be true! Songi did all this? How could he have done
this! What was he thinking? I have to talk to Songi! I have to find out
why he did this! But...Vahn! Noa! Are you going to go to East Voz
Forest now?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Gala: Please! Tell me the truth!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Gala: I knew it! I know that Songi is waiting for me in East Voz
Forest. If the Genesis Tree is still alive, I'll revive it and free the
monastery from the Mist! After traveling together, I know how strong
you are now. Actually, to be honest, I'm not confident enough to go to
East Voz Forest without you. I need your strength. Please! Will you
take me with you?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Gala: I know I'm being selfish, but I want to learn the truth about
Songi! I want to rid the monastery of the Mist! Please take me with
you!

* If Vahn says no again

{Gala drops to a knee}

Gala: I know I'm being self-centered, but I want to learn the truth
about Songi! {Bows to the floor} I want to rid the monastery of the
Mist! Please take me with you!
======================================================================

a. Yes

Gala: Thank you! From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head out the east exit of Biron Monastery}

                                                                [a108]

{As they enter the forest Gala stops Vahn and Noa}

Gala: Wait a moment, everyone! I feel something...I feel Songi's
presence! Songi is here! Vahn, Noa, I need you two to promise me
something! Even if Songi appears before you, don't fight him. I know
this is asking a lot, but...if a Seru possesses his soul as you say,
then I want to be the one to take care of him. I will detain you no
longer. Come, let's hurry!

{Many crystalized weeds block the paths leading deeper into East Voz
Forest but the trio comes across a Weed Hammer}

Gala: Oh, a Weed Hammer!

Noa: Gala, what's a Weed Hammer?

Gala: It's something used to break Crystal Grass and other types of
hard Grass.

Noa: Oh.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala break through the obstructions blocking their way.
Eventually they reach they find the Genesis Tree}

Noa: I found it! Look, everyone! It's the Genesis Tree! And it's alive!

{Noa closely inspects the Genesis Tree}

Noa: Yeah! Vahn! Gala! It's still alive! The Genesis Tree is still
alive!

Gala: This Genesis Tree does seem different from the one in West Voz
Forest. Did Songi find this Genesis Tree? Or did the Genesis Tree
mislead him into taking a wrong turn somewhere?

Meta: Vahn! An evil presence draws near! Hurry! Let's revive the
Genesis Tree!

{Vahn walks to the trunk of the Genesis Tree}

Songi: Now wait just a minute!

{Songi appears at the top of a mountain ledge}

Songi: Watch what you're doing, or you'll hurt yourselves! Ha, ha, ha!

{The three rush forward at the sight of Songi}

Songi: Gala! I knew you would come! You're so predictable! How
thoughtful of you to come all the way here to check up on me! I'm
flattered!

{Songi does a forward flip as he jumps onto the ledge below him}

Songi: But don't worry about me! I'm the picture of health - physically
and mentally! I may be wearing a Seru, but I haven't done anything
stupid like let it control me!

{Songi does another forward flip onto another ledge below him}

Songi: This is a special Seru! It gives me pure energy, extraordinary
power! Gala, you're no match for me now!

{Songi jumps down to the ground}

Songi: Fight me! I'll destroy you, just like I destroyed Biron
Monastery!

{Noa rushes forward but is held aside by Gala}

Noa: That's it! I'm gonna knock your block off, Songi! Let me at him!

Gala: Noa, you promised to leave him to me, right?

{Noa reluctantly backs away}

Gala: Songi! You say you are not possessed by the Seru? You...you are
not the Songi I know! You're nothing but a bloodthirsty beast! I don't
know what happened to you, but you are obviously void of a human
spirit. If you want to fight me that badly, then I'll fight you!

{Gala prepares his fighting stance}

Gala: I'll beat the evil out of you and return you to normal! Now fight
me!

{Songi spits on the dirt}

Songi: You hopeless simpleton! You still don't understand the
situation! Well I'll show you! I'll hammer it into that thick skull of
yours!

{Songi charges toward Gala and pummels him into the ground. Gala gets
up and attacks Songi but is easily deflected and punched onto the floor}

Songi: Gala, I thought you were stronger than that! You're not even a
worthy opponent!

{Songi turns his back on Gala}

Songi: This is ridiculous! Absurd! You need more practice!

{Vahn and Noa rush to Gala's side}

Songi: You're not even worth dirtying my hands over. I'll leave you to
one of my cohorts! Have a nice, enjoyable, pleasant...death!

+====================+
+Mini-Boss: Viguro x2+
+====================+

{Two Viguro appear behind Vahn, Noa and Gala. The heroes defeat them and
Gala collapses to a knee after the battle is over}

+====================+
+End Mini-Boss Battle+
+====================+

Songi: Stop! Enough already! Gala! You're completely hopeless! You're
holding everyone down! As a fellow Biron monk, I'm ashamed! You were so
bad, I was ashamed to even watch! Oh, I've had enough! I'm going home!

{Songi turns his back to the trio}

Songi: Let's play together again another time, Gala...

{Songi faces them again}

Songi: If a wussy like you can manage to stay alive, that is! Ha, ha,
ha!

{Songi shows off with a series of flips, jumping backwards across the
ledges before disappearing over the top of the mountain}

Terra: What an insolent man!

Noa: I hate him!

Meta: But Songi's Seru, that definitely was a...nevermind! We don't
have time to talk! We have to revive the Genesis Tree! Hurry!

{Vahn walks over to the Genesis Tree's trunk}

Narration: Vahn reached out gently to touch the Genesis Tree. He feels
a gentle warmth in the palm of his hand.

Terra: Noa! I'll help you!

{Noa runs over to the Genesis Tree}

Narration: Noa reached out swiftly to touch the Genesis Tree. She feels
a silent power in the palm of her hand.

{The energy from Meta and Terra enters the Genesis Tree. It revives and
thins out the Mist in East Voz Forest}

Terra: Look! The Genesis Tree's power is making the Ra-Seru Egg hatch!

{The Egg shatters and reveals a blue-colored Ra-Seru}

Gala: It's a Ra-Seru!

{The Ra-Seru rises from the ground and levitates in front of Gala}

Gala: Ra-Seru! Why are you here, in front of me? Ra-Seru! Is it me you
have chosen?

{Gala pauses for a moment in thought}

Gala: Very well! I submit myself to you! To defeat Songi, the villain
who attacked Biron Monastery...I submit myself to you, Ra-Seru! Take
me!

                                  Ozma:
                            Gala, I am pleased
                               to meet you.
                                I am Ozma.
                              I am a Ra-Seru.
                          I sense you do not wish
                        to open up your mind to me.
                           Please do not fear me!
                           We Ra-Seru exist only
                          to lend our strength to
                         humans, not control them.
                          Your mind will remain
                           your own. I will not
                             tamper with it.
                               And besides,
                        I have chosen you. Just as
                         you submit yourself to me,
                        I entrust you with my very
                                  destiny.
                             Never forget that!
                                   Gala,
                           I am counting on you,
                            and the future that
                          you will create for us.

Narration: With the power of the Genesis Tree, Meta's level increased
to Lv3. Terra's level increased to Lv2.

Gala: I feel it! I feel the strength in my arms! The Ra-Seru's
strength! Vahn! We must return to Biron Monastery! I fear for Master
Zopu's safety!

{The Ra-Seru heroes rush toward the exit of East Voz Forest in a hurry
to reach Biron Monastery}

Noa: I hope the Genesis Tree's powers reached Biron.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala are in Master Zopu's chamber. The Mist is now gone
from Biron Monastery}

Zopu: Although many died during Songi's attack, thanks to our
visitors...Biron has been freed from the Mist. I thank you again. But,
you, Master Teacher!

Gala: Yes, sir!

Zopu: You defied the teachings of Biron and wore a Seru. As ruler of
the Biron Order, I cannot forgive you. I hereby excommunicate you!

Gala: (Silence) I understand. I was prepared for that.

{Gala drops down on one knee and looks down at the floor}

Noa: Zopu, what does "excommunication" mean?

Zopu: (Silence)

Gala: Noa, it means I'm no longer welcome at Biron Monastery.

Noa: What!

{Noa jumps up and down in a tantrum}

Noa: That's not right! Gala didn't do anything bad! How can you kick
him out after he fought so hard for us? Zopu, that's wrong!

Gala: Noa, stop! Zopu is only doing what he must. Monks like me all
take a vow to obey certain rules. I broke those rules, and so I cannot
be a monk of Biron anymore.

Noa: That's OK, Gala. Vahn and I will be your friends! Vahn and I won't
ever turn our backs on you!

{Maya suddenly walks into the room}

Maya: Vahn! And Noa, and Master Teacher! You're all safe! I heard about
what you did. That's really something! I'm so proud of you. I also
heard that the Genesis Tree...caused the thick Mist in the northwest
valley to thin, revealing a strange castle. Vahn, I know you. You plan
on going to that castle, don't you?

1) Of course!
2) I'm going to Rim Elm with you.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Of course!

Maya: I knew it! Brave son of Val! You are truly a native of Rim Elm.
I'm so proud of you. You're so brave! I'll be in the kitchen, so come
see me later!
======================================================================

2) I'm going to Rim Elm with you.

Maya: Silly! You have more important things to do than worry about a
middle-aged woman like me. And you call yourself Val's son? You call
yourself a native of Rim Elm? After traveling so far with Noa and
Master Teacher and meeting so many people...Don't you feel anything? Is
your heart made of stone? I am not going back to Rim Elm! If you won't
go to the castle, then I'll go in your place!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Zopu: Ha, ha, ha! They've completely ignored me, too. Hmm. It was ten
years ago, when that castle was built and the Mist flowed into this
region. Unless we destroy that castle, the Mist will never go away and
more tragedies will occur. I am sure of it. Vahn, Noa. I'm counting on
your Ra-Seru. And you, too, Gala.

Gala: Yes, Master Zopu!

Zopu: Gala, I want you to take care of Songi! Even if it means wearing
a Seru against the rules of Biron. You and Songi...you are two of my
dearest pupils. Like my own flesh and blood! Gala, I'm counting on you
to take care of Songi!

Gala: (Overcome with emotion) Yes, sir!

{Maya leaves the room to go back into the kitchen. Vahn, Noa and Gala
make their way out of the monastery in order to destroy the Mist
Generator}

                                                                [a109]

{The Ra-Seru heroes enter the valley of Mist and arrive at a large
fortress}

Noa: Vahn, Gala! Look at all the Mist! It's coming from over there!

Gala: It's a smokestack! Thick Mist is pouring out from that
smokestack!

Ozma: That is where the Mist that engulfed Drake Kingdom comes from!

Terra: Now listen, Noa. This castle has caverns deep underground. Deep
inside them is a Mist Generator! That's where the Mist is coming from!

Noa: I'll destroy the Mist Generator! I want to get rid of all the
Mist!

Terra: You're a good girl. That's right, Noa. We have to destroy the
Mist Generator!

Meta: Once we reach the Mist Generator, we can stop the Mist with our
Ra-Seru powers. But this is a vital castle to the enemy, and will be
heavily defended. Proceed with caution!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala nod in agreement charge through the levels of the
dungeon until they are stopped by a familiar voice}

Songi: Ha, ha, ha! Here comes the army of idiots to save the day!

{The Ra-Seru heroes see Songi standing atop a ventilation shaft}

Songi: What courage! Perhaps idiots do not fear death! Oh, what comedy!

{Songi forward-flips down onto the floor}

Gala: Vahn! Noa! Step aside. Leave Songi to me.

Songi: Gala! How forgetful you are! It is I who defeated you once
before! Have you forgotten how much stronger than you I am?

{Songi raises his right arm to flash the Ra-Seru on his forearm}

Songi: You must be suicidal to fight someone as skilled as I am in the
fighting arts. Oh, how pitiful! Your extreme stupidity brings tears to
my eyes! Well, come on! I'll finish you quickly, so you'll feel no
pain.

+===========+
+Boss: Songi+
+===========+

{Songi and Gala face off in a one-on-one battle. Gala is victorious}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Songi: I don't believe it! That Seru has made you much stronger than
before! I am pleased! After all, a weak rival is so boring. We both use
Seru - that makes us comrades. So let's call our little meeting today a
draw.

{Songi flips on top of the ventilation shaft he was once standing on}

Songi: As a fellow Seru-user I'll tell you something you should know.
The lord of this castle, Zeto, is waiting for you all by the Mist
Generator. Gala, be very, very careful, if you value your life. Don't
lose to someone like Zeto. Farewell!

{Songi runs off immediately without awaiting a reply from Gala}

Gala: Just what is that guy up to anyway? My apologies for taking so
long...

Noa: I don't like that Songi! I hate him! Next time he comes, I'll
fight him, too!

Gala: Yes, I suspect the day will soon come when we shall all have to
fight him...now let's hurry! To the Mist Generator!

{The Ra-Seru heroes regroup and venture deeper into the dungeon. They
ride down the 2nd floor elevator and travel the corridors until reaching
the massive Mist Generator in front of them}

Noa: Oh my...!

Terra: The Mist Generator is a machine that creates Mist and a product
of humans' evil desires.

Gala: Can we really destroy something that big?

Ozma: With our faith, Ra-Seru and humans can destroy this machine
together!

Meta: This machine does not belong on earth! Let's go!

{The Ra-Seru heroes rush forward to the Mist Generator as a flash of
light erupts and Zeto rises out of the ground}

Zeto: The Mist is salvation. The Mist is eternal. The Mist is perfect
harmony. You should have accepted the Mist obediently. Instead, you
resist so foolishly. I, Zeto, will now put an end to your futile
resistance!

Noa: I know you. You're the one who bothered me at Mt. Rikuroa! You did
those horrible things to Terra the wolf! I...I...I'll make you pay!

{The Ra-Seru heroes charge at Zeto as he changes form into a gigantic
crab}

+==========+
+Boss: Zeto+
+==========+

{Zeto attacks the Ra-Seru heroes but despite his transformation he is
defeated}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Zeto: How could I lose to humans? Is it because of those Ra-Seru?
Urgggh...Those Ra-Seru, who don't even know the Mist's salvation?
Forgive me, Prince Cort!

{Zeto cries out as he bursts into pieces}

Meta: Vahn! Noa! Gala! Are you ready to destroy the Mist Generator?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Meta: This is to destroy all Mist from the face of the earth! Are you
ready!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Meta: We must work as one! Attack!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{The Ra-Seru heroes raise their right arms into the air. A bright light
from each Ra-Seru enters the Mist Generator. After a few moments the
Mist Generator crumbles and falls into pieces}

Gala: Amazing! The Ra-Seru are powerful enough to destroy that giant
Mist Generator!

Noa: Terra? Terra, are you sad? I can tell that you're crying, Terra.

Terra: You're so kind, Noa. But don't worry about me.

Noa: But...

Meta: After all, the detestable Mist that surrounded Drake Kingdom is
now gone!

Terra: But we mustn't rest yet! We still have to destroy those who
created these infernal machines!

Ozma: There are also people in other areas still suffering in the
horrible Mist!

Terra: Resting now is the same as giving up!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head back to Biron Monastery. Unbeknownst to them,
a Ra-Seru Egg floats up from the Mist Generator's crumbled pieces and
then shatters}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{The Ra-Seru heroes are seen standing in Zopu's chamber at Biron
Monastery}

Zopu: So, the Mist comes from some device called the Mist Generator.
There must also be a Mist Generator in the north, which is still
enveloped in the Mist. Honorable Gala!

Gala: Master Zopu, please, you mustn't call me "Honorable" Gala...

Zopu: I see. Well, then, Gala! I want you to go after Songi. That Seru
on Songi's arm......obviously it is not a Ra-Seru. And I cannot help
but suspect the influence of some evil presence, Zeto perhaps. Fighting
the Mist also means tracking down Songi.

{Noa runs into the room}

Noa: Zopu! Gala! Maya says she will return to Rim Elm!

{Maya enters the room}

Maya: Master Zopu. Everyone. I want to thank you for letting me stay
here so long.

Noa:
Maya, you're really going back alone? I can go with you.

Maya: Thank you, Noa. But the Mist Generator has been destroyed. I'll
be alright. Come visit me in Rim Elm sometime. We'll have fun talking
together again.

Noa: OK!

Maya: Vahn, you've been chosen by the Ra-Seru, so don't be ashamed of
it.

1) Thank you. I'll do my best!
2) I wish I could go to Rim Elm, too!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Thank you. I'll do my best!

Maya: Vahn, you're a brave man, and I'll be sure to tell Mei and Val
how brave you are! Well, it makes me sad to watch people walk away from
me. So I'll leave ahead of you. Goodbye, everyone.
======================================================================

2) I wish I could go to Rim Elm, too!

Maya: Cheer up, Vahn! You're a man. Don't worry about me. Besides, do
you want to idle away the rest of your life in a little village like
Rim Elm? Mei and Val would be so disappointed if they heard you say
that! You're simply incorrigible!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noa: Goodbye, Maya.

Zopu: Yes, good luck to you.

Gala: Have a safe journey.

{Maya begins to head out but turns around and takes one last look at
everyone before she exits the room}

Gala: Well, Maya is gone now. Vahn, to the north of Drake Kingdom,
people are suffering because of the Mist. But we can save them.

Noa: Vahn, to the north! Let's go to the north and fight the Mist!

1) Follow me, everyone!
2) I have a bad feeling about this...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Follow me, everyone!

Gala: That's the spirit! Vahn, you're the leader! We're all counting on
you!

Noa: Vahn, you're the greatest!

{Noa blows Vahn a kiss}
======================================================================

2) I have a bad feeling about this...

Gala: (Silence)

Noa: (Silence)

Gala: Huh?

Noa: What?

a. All right, all right. I'll go!
b. Huh?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. Huh?

Gala: Huh?

Noa: What?
======================================================================

a. All right, all right. I'll go!

Gala: That's the spirit! Vahn, you're the leader! We're all counting on
you.

Noa: Vahn, you're the greatest!

{Noa blows Vahn a kiss}

***************************************
Optional Event: Reacquainted with Tetsu
***************************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala return to Rim Elm and speak with Tetsu}

Tetsu: Ah, and you there...

Gala: Sir! Master Tetsu, I am called Gala.

Tetsu: Gala? I remember you being a mere child...You have grown strong
so quickly! That reminds me. What happened to Songi?

{Gala shakes his head}

Gala: (Silence)

{Tetsu looks at Vahn, who shakes his head also}

Tetsu: There must be some reason. But it matters not! I won't trouble
you to explain. {Tetsu looks toward the ocean} Gala, as a fellow Biron
disciple, please look after Vahn and Noa for me!

*********************************
Optional Event: A Painful Reunion
*********************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala enter Mei's house to see Maya inside hanging
clothes}

Mei:  Vahn! (Silence) Vahn, you're a liar! You're nothing but a liar!
Why didn't you tell me?

{Gala shrugs and walks over to the window at the other side of the
room}

Mei: About my mother...Why didn't you tell me you went to Biron
Monastery to look for her? Why didn't you tell me? I was so worried
about you! I never knew you put yourself in such danger for me. Why
didn't you tell me?! Why? You should have told me! I was so worried!

{Vahn places his hand on Mei's shoulder to comfort her}

Mei: (Silence)

{Maya walks over to Mei}

Maya: Mei, why are you angry at Vahn? Why?

Mei: I don't know...I'm so happy to have you back home, Mother, but...
And it was Vahn who brought you back, but...I'm so grateful to Vahn, and
at the same time I feel so guilty...When I see his face, I get full of
emotions...so many emotions at the same time. I'm angry at Vahn for not
telling me, and angry at myself for not knowing. (Silence)

{Mei blushes red all over}

Maya: Oh, Mei! You don't have to cry! There, there now! I don't know
what to do with you!

{Noa runs over to Mei and Maya}

Noa: Mei? Mei, why are you crying?

Mei: Noa?

Noa: Mei, your mother came home! You're not lonely anymore! So why are
you crying? Why are you crying? Did Vahn do something that bad? Was he
mean to you? {Noa looks over at Vahn} If Vahn was bad to you, I'll
teach him a lesson! So don't cry, Mei, OK? {Noa looks at Mei} When I
see you crying, it makes me want to cry, too! I don't have a mother!
I'm all alone! Uh... {Noa drops to her knees} Ohh... {Noa starts to cry
heavily} Waaa! Waaaa!

Gala: Noa!
Maya: Noa!
Mei: Noa!

Noa: Wah! Waaaaaa! Waaaaa!

{The scene fades to black before focusing back on everyone}

Mei: Oh, I'm sorry, Noa! I'm so sorry! So many emotions came out all at
once, and I was just confused.

{Maya starts wiping away Noa's tears}

Maya: Noa, I want you to think of me as your mother, OK?

Noa: Uh-huh.

Maya: Vahn, I want to ask you a very important favor. I want you to
find Noa's mother, like you found me. Would you do that for me? Noa
tells me that she dreams about her mother often...In those dreams, she
hears her mother's voice calling to her. Well, they say dreams are the
prophecies of Rem, right? So, please! Find her!

1) Of course! That's the plan.
2) I don't know about that...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) I don't know about that...

Maya: Oh...Vahn, you're not as kindhearted as I thought you were. There
is a time and place for jokes, but this isn't one of them! Please,
think it over.
======================================================================

1) Of course! That's the plan.

Maya: That's the Vahn that I know! That's the spirit!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gala: Vahn, Noa, we should get going.

Noa: (Whimpering)

{Noa walks toward the door}

Maya: Gala, you take care of yourself, too!

Gala: Yes, ma'am. Thank you very much!

Maya: Vahn, I believe in you.

Mei:  Vahn, thank you so much.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala examine a small tree just above the steps leading
down to the beach}

Nene: Look! In that tree...Bees! Be careful!

{Nene falls face-first on the floor. Vahn turns to Nene after she trips
and becomes ambushed by the bees in the tree}

1) Defeat the bees
2) Lose to the bees
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) Lose to the bees

{Vahn wakes up in his bed}

Nene: Are you alright?
======================================================================

1) Defeat the Bees

Narration: The bees are gone, and a sweet smell emanates from a hole in
the tree. Vahn put his hand in! Vahn now has the Honey!

Nene: Wow, you're great! You chased off the bees! Everyone in the
village will be so happy! I'm going home now. Bye!

Nene: Thank you! Now I can make an Elm Cake!

(Vahn no longer has the Honey and Nene never makes him an Elm Cake. Nene

{Vahn, Noa and Gala reach the Ancient Wind Cave. A room within the cave
holds an inn and a weapons shop. They are greeted by an old man}

Old Wizard: How do you do? I am the Old Wizard. Now that the Mist has
amazingly disappeared, I was just waiting for a customer. Welcome to my
shop. I have everything and anything. Come on into the back.

{The Ra-Seru heroes venture into the back of his inn and see a large
lever in the ground}

Narration: Do you wish to move the lever?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Vahn did not move the lever.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Narration: Vahn moved the lever.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{As Vahn moves the lever the large stone double doors at the other side
of the cave open. The heroes enter through the doors and make their way
down a winding cave until reaching a door that leads to another shop}

Old Witch: Well! My first customers in ten years! I'm so happy! I've
been in business here for forty years. But it's been ten years since
I've had any customers! I'm sohappy now! Well, come on in! I run a
store and an inn. You must be tired. Come along and I'll get you a room
for the night.

Narration: Do you want to spend the night?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Old Witch: What? Oh, stop talking nonsense. You have to stay
======================================================================

1) Yes

Old Witch: Well, enjoy your stay!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{The screen cuts to black. Suddenly the image of a courtyard with
fountains and a large building ripple into view. Vahn, Noa and Gala are
there}

Gala: Vahn! Noa!

Noa: Boo hoo! Where are we?

1) We may be dreaming.
2) I have no idea at all.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) We may be dreaming.

Gala: Perhaps...but if this is a dream, it feels different from an
ordinary dream.
======================================================================

2) I have no idea at all.

Gala: This feeling...It's probably a dream, yet it feels different from
an ordinary dream.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Noa raises her hands to her ears and appears to be listening to
something in the distance}

Gala: What's the matter?

Noa: A voice! I hear a voice! My mother...It sounds like my mother!

Voice: Noa! I am not your mother!

{A white sphere rises at the building in front of them and a voice
fills the air}

Voice: My name is Hari! I inhabit a world between the dream world and
the human world. I have a message for those in the human world and who
are with the Ra-Seru. They are the true words of Rem. Go to Octam, the
ancient yet eternal city, far away in the heart of Sebucus. There,
compassionate human beings will learn the true meaning of all dreams!

{The sphere rises even further into the air and disappears}

Gala: Hari...

Noa: Hari is going to tell us what our dreams mean...

{The scene transitions back to the Ancient Wind Cave. Vahn, Noa and
Gala hop out of bed}

Gala: Vahn, I had that dream again.

1) I guess we should find Hari.
2) That sure is a weird dream.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I guess we should find Hari.

Noa: Yeah, you're right, Vahn.
======================================================================

2) That sure is a weird dream.

Noa: Oh! Hmmph! I want to see Hari!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala find a small girl in the corner of the Old Witch's
Inn}

Girl: Do you dream a lot?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Girl: Oh. Well, never mind, some people just don't remember their
dreams, I guess.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Girl: Oh, good! I dream a lot, too! Dreams tell you about your future,
you know. Do you want to learn how to tell the future from your dreams?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Girl: Well, I guess people create their own future, not dreams...
======================================================================

a. Yes

Girl: I knew it! I knew you were interested in dreams!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Girl: Somewhere on the Sebucus Islands is a person who lives in a dream
world. His name is Hari.

Noa: Hari? I know about Hari! Can Hari really tell you what a dream
means?

Girl: {Nods} Yes. My grandma told me so.

Noa: He's in Octam. Hari is in Octam, right?

Girl: {Shakes her head} Octam? I'm sorry, I don't know much about the
outside world.

Noa: {Hangs her head} Oh. Sigh!

{Noa turns to Vahn}

Noa: Vahn! I've made up my mind! I'm going to look for Hari! Vahn, will
you help me find Hari?

1) Of course I'll help you find him!
2) First we must destroy the Mist!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Of course I'll help you find him!

Noa: Good! I'm so happy. Thank you, Vahn!
======================================================================

2) First we must destroy the Mist!

Noa: Oh, Vahn...I guess you're right. (Sigh!) But I want to see Hari!
Vahn, I'll do everything I can to destroy the Mist, but...if...That's
IF we find Hari, let me at least talk to him, OK?

a. OK, you can.
b. We don't have time for that!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a. OK, you can.

Noa: Thank you Vahn! You're such a nice person! You're so nice to me!
Alright, Vahn, let's go to Sebucus and find Hari!

{Noa runs up to Vahn excitedly}
======================================================================

b. We don't have time for that!

Noa: Hmmph. You're so mean, Vahn...

{Noa sadly and slowly walks over to Vahn}

{As the Ra-Seru heroes try to leave the Inn through the back exit the
Old Water Witch walks toward them}

Old Witch: You're my first customers in a long time. I can't let you go
away empty handed!

Narration: Vahn now has two Doors of Wind!

Noa: Old Witch, what is this?

Old Witch: What? You don't know about the Doors of Wind? Let's see,
where do I start? It's an item that lets you fly - anytime - to a town
you've visited at least once. You can't use it in caves or inside a
town, but...many islands make up the Sebucus Islands. Use the Wind Door
to get around there.

Gala: Thank you for your kindness.

Old Witch: Oh, don't mention it. Well, good luck to you.

Sebucus}

{The Ra-Seru heroes find themselves in the Sebucus Islands, which are
completely covered in Mist. They travel until finding the town of
Jeremi}

Noa: Vahn! It's Mist! Everyone's turned into monsters in the Mist!

Terra: Noa, it's a Genesis Tree! I sense a Genesis Tree!

Gala: That means we can save this town if we revive that Genesis Tree!

Ozma: I sense that the Genesis Tree is somewhere in town...someplace
high up.

Noa: How exciting! I want to go! I want to go to the high place!

Gala: Oh, brother.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala go to the central building in town and take the
elevators to the Sky Gardens at the top of the tower. They go through
the hedge maze and find a a large, mutated Seru chomping onto the trunk
of the Genesis Tree}

Noa: Hey, who's this?

Ozma: It's a Seru!

Noa: A Seru? I didn't know Seru could be this weird.

Terra: Have you forgotten? Seru themselves are blameless. It's all the
Mist's fault. Long exposure to the Mist must have turned that Seru into
such a horrible creature.

Meta: It's clinging to the Genesis Tree to absorb the energy that it
emits.

{Noa rushes over to the monster and tries to pry if off of the Genesis
Tree}

Noa: Let go! Let go of the Genesis Tree right now!

{The monster emits light from its body and Noa is knocked away}

Noa: Hey!

{The plant monster lumbers around and faces the Ra-Seru heroes}

Gala: The only way to revive the Genesis Tree is to defeat him first!
Let's go!

+===============+
+Boss: Berserker+
+===============+

{Vahn, Noa and Gala defeat the Berserker}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Gala: It was a horrifying monster, but no match for the Biron martial
arts!

{Noa rushes up the steps to the Genesis Tree}

Noa: Hurry! Hurry! Vahn, we have to help the Genesis Tree!

{Vahn and Gala join Noa at the base of the Genesis Tree}

Narration: Vahn reached out gently for the Genesis Tree. He felt a
gentle warmth in the palm of his hand.

Narration: Noa reached out swiftly for the Genesis Tree. She felt a
quiet strength in the palm of her hand.

Narration: Gala reached out strongly for the Genesis Tree. He felt pure
joy in the palm of his hand.

{The Genesis Tree revives and pushes the Mist out of Jeremi}

Narration: With the power of the Genesis Tree, Meta's level increased
to Lv4. Terra's level increased to Lv3. Ozma's level increased to Lv2.

Noa: Terra and I are even stronger! This is great!

Gala: So this is how the Ra-Seru become stronger...

{The camera scrolls to the edge of the tower and a man steps out from
the door behind him. A woman is standing at one of the stairways
looking at him}

Man: Ooh, something's wrong...my head feels fuzzy...

Woman: Was I asleep...or was I awake? Oh, the Mist came, then...

{They both walk to the entrance of the Sky Gardens}

Woman: Hey, look! The Genesis Tree is changing!

Man: Whoah! The Mist is disappearing, too! Something is happening!
There's someone next to the Genesis Tree!

Woman: They must have drove away the Mist! Oh, how wonderful!

{The man and woman run through the hedge maze toward the Genesis Tree}

Woman: It was you who got rid of the Mist, right?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Woman: What? I couldn't hear you very well. You're the ones who got rid
of the Mist, right?
======================================================================

1) Yes

Man: I knew it! Thank you so much! How wonderful! It's a miracle! Tell
me how you did it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn and Noa start to explain}

Man: Uh-huh. I see...amazing!

{Gala joins in}

Man: Incredible! Just great! Magnificent! So reviving the Genesis Trees
is what does it. I should get going, then!

{He begins to rush off but stops to tell the heroes one last thing}

Man: I'll hurry down ahead of you so I can tell the people of Jeremi
about this miracle!

{The man heads off to the bottom of the tower}

Woman: Some people never change...

{The heroes take the elevator down to the first floor of the tower. The
mayor of Jeremi and the man from earlier are waiting for them}

Mayor: Vahn, Noa, and Gala! I heard the news! I'm so grateful to you
all! You revived the Genesis Tree and saved Jeremi from the Mist! The
townspeople have rushed over to get a look at all of you! Please, come
this way.

Man: Perfect! Don't worry about a thing! When I told the townspeople
about your brave deeds, they were ecstatic!

Mayor: Oh, come now! The townspeople are so anxious to see you! Let's
go! Alright, this way, please!

Man: Ha, ha! I'm in trouble! I must return to Sky Gardens. I hope to
see you again soon!

{The trio follows the mayor into the main hall of the tower}

Mayor: Ladies and gentlemen! Thank you for your patience. Wearing Ra-
Seru, these heroes braved the Mist and revived the Genesis Tree! Here
they are, the heroes who saved Jeremi: Vahn! Noa! Gala! Thank you,
brave Ra-Seru heroes!

{The crowd begins to crowd Vahn, Noa and Gala}

Blue-haired Dancer: Vahn! I just adore you!

Random Guy: Noa, you're so cute!

{Noa steps back at this man's advance. He steps in even closer}

Green-haired Dancer: Oh I don't believe it! It's Gala!

{The crowd begins to go out of control and starts to push in even more
in order to catch a glimpse of the Ra-Seru heroes}

Mayor: Don't push! Everyone, please calm down! Ooof! I'm being crushed!
Mmff!

{The scene fades to black}

{The Ra-Seru heroes wake up from a long rest at Jeremi's inn. The mayor
is there to greet them}

Mayor: Ah, I see you're all awake! I'm so sorry about yesterday. I
never thought that would happen! I have firmly instructed everyone not
to cause any ruckus this time. Well then, good luck. Good day.

{The mayor of Jeremi leaves the inn. After the mayor leaves the Ra-Seru
heroes explore the town and find themselves in the jeweler's shop. His
name is Zalan}

Zalan: Well, if it isn't the Ra-Seru heroes! I have a favor to ask of
you. Will you listen?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Zalan: Oh, I see. I understand.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Zalan: Oh, thank you! I have a wife and son in Vidna. I don't know how
things are in Vidna, but...if they are alive, I want them to know I am
safe. That's why I wrote this letter. But I can't deliver the letter
because of the Mist outside town. I heard that you can travel through
the Mist. All I ask of you...is that you deliver this letter to my wife
and son in Vidna.

(Vahn now has Zalan's letter!)

Zalan: My wife's name is Yuma. My son is called Pepe. I hope they are
safe.

{The heroes travel north along the islands and come across a town
surrounded by gigantic windmills. The windmills have kept the Mist out
of the area. They explore the town and enter into the home of Yuma and
Pepe, Zalan's wife and son respectively. A young man, Pepe, walks
toward them}

Pepe: (Silence) Yes, I am Pepe, but what do you want?

Noa: Yeah! Hooray! It's Pepe! It's Pepe! Oh, Pepe, listen, we...Pepe's
alive...I mean, of course you're alive...This letter...in Jeremi,
Zalan...

Pepe: What?

{Gala gives Noa an irritated look and steps in front of her}

Gala: I'm sorry. She is very excitable.

Noa: Uh-huh! Uh-huh!

Gala: We have a letter for you from your father in Jeremi. Here it is.

(Gala gave Zalan's letter to Pepe.)

                                   Letter:
                         To my dearest Yuma and Pepe:
                        If you are reading this letter
                         then thankfully you are safe.
                        I am writing you out of concern
                              for your safety.
                        Jeremi was covered in the Mist,
                         but thanks to a brave Ra-Seru
                              we are free at last.
                        I lost my memory when the Mist
                           first came, but now I am
                              completely recovered.
                         I suppose Vidna is covered by
                                the Mist as well.
                         I hope that the madness of the
                          Seru has not possessed you.
                         I have so many things to ask.
                           It has been over 10 years
                            since you left for Vidna,
                        but it seems like only yesterday
                          since we bid farewell, smiling.
                          Yuma, does the ring I gave you
                                 still sparkle?
                        Pepe, how many gems do you know
                               the name of now?
                          I want to be with you. I want
                        to tell you how much I love you.
                           Stay healthy and strong.
                              Until we meet again,
                               I won't lose hope.
                            Your father, Fat Fingers,
                                     Zalan

Pepe: When I was small, I asked Mother what attracted her to Father.
She said it was his fat but nimble fingers. Ever since then, his
nickname around the house was "Fat Fingers." To tell you the truth,
somewhere in my heart, I had given up on Father. But he's alive! Oh,
thank you for bringing the letter. Thank you so much! If only Mother
were alive, too! Yes. Three years ago, she fell ill and died. Oh, wait
a minute!

{Pepe walks over to a kitchen cabinet and fetches something before
returning back}

Pepe: This is a keepsake of my mother. If you would, please give it to
Father.

(Vahn and the others now have Yuma's ring!)

Pepe: Please tell Father...tell Zalan of Jeremi that his son is alive.

{The Ra-Seru heroes leave with Yuma's ring and explore more of Vidna.
The Ra-Seru heroes enter a home filled with Biron monks}

Noa: Hey! Gala, look! People from Biron! It's a lot of Biron people!

Gala:
(Surprise)

{Vahn and Noa both turn toward Gala who is staring at the floor in
shame}

Noa: Gala, what's wrong? I thought the Biron people were your friends.

{Gala shakes his head}

Gala: It's just that I've violated the teachings of Biron by wearing
Ozma.

Noa: What's the matter, Gala? Zopu forgave you! Then why?Vahn, say
something to Gala.

1) He'll understand if you explain.
2) Gala, don't torment yourself!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) He'll understand if you explain
2) Gala, don't torment yourself!

Gala: But...

Noa: Gala, Vahn is right! And what's more...Ozma isn't a Seru. He's a
Ra-Seru. So you didn't do anything wrong!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{A priestess rushes over to the Ra-Seru heroes}

Priestess: Ra-Seru? Did you just say "Ra-Seru"?

Noa: That's right! A Ra-Seru isn't the same thing as a Seru.

Priestess: Oh, Hari, your prophecy has come true!

Gala: And you are?

Priestess: Allow me to introduce myself. I am called Sashia.

Noa: Sashia, are you a friend of Hari's?

Sashia: Not really a friend...I serve Hari. I am a priestess at the
Temple of Rem. Before the Mist came, Hari instructed me to go to Vidna.
I was to wait for three youths wearing Ra-Seru and give them The
Message.

Gala: Hari knew that we would come here?

Noa: Wow! That Hari is amazing! Where is he? I want to meet him!

Sashia: I am sure that Hari awaits your visit, too. I shall now give
you The Message, as instructed by Hari. Go to the Temple of Rem! See
the four Books of Prophecy! When you have seen them all, the secret
will be clear! A brave Ra-Seru will acquire a great key, the Star
Pearl!

Gala: Four Books of Prophecy? Star Pearl? What is this, a riddle?

Sashia: Hari said that with this, the youths wearing Ra-Seru would find
a way.

Gala: Umm...

{A voice from off-screen interrupts the conversation}

Voice: Excuse me, but...

{The Ra-Seru heroes turn to face the one who interrupted them, a Biron
monk who was previously training}

Biron Monk: I have heard of you. You are of Biron, yes?

{Gala looks at the floor in shame}

Gala: Actually, not...anymore.

Biron Monk: Things being the way they are, I am sure there are very
good reasons. Nonetheless...you are the visitors that Sashia has waited
for all this time. Please, rest here.

{The monk bows and the three rest at the house}

Sashia: The Temple of Rem is in Octam. Good luck to you all.

*********************************

*********************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala enter a house at the far end of town where they
find construction workers building an underground shelter. They take
the elevator down in the basement and speak with the owner of the
house, Danpas}

Danpas: Do you realize how serious the situation is?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Danpas: Oh, this is ridiculous! You don't realize what's happening!
Fools, fools, all of you!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Danpas: The townspeople here don't realize how horrible the Mist is.
Don't you fellows agree?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Danpas: Oh, this is ridiculous! You don't realize what's happening!
Fools, fools, all of you!
======================================================================

a. Yes

Danpas: You know, you seem pretty smart. What would happen if for some
reason the windmills stopped? The Mist would swallow us all. We'd all
be eaten by the Seru, or possessed by them. That's why I'm preparing
for when that happens. I built an underground shelter. And what do the
townspeople do? They treat me like a lunatic. Fools. Fools! They're all
fools! You seem to know what's going on, so if the Mist ever comes, you
can hide in here. For you fellows, I'll have an especially good hiding
place.

{The Ra-Seru heroes travel to Octam. They can see that it is the same
city that appeared before them in their dream}

Noa: It's Octam! Vahn! Gala! This must be Octam!

Gala: Yes, this would appear to be the Octam as was told to me in past
dreams.

{Noa runs farther into the town}

Noa: Hooray! We're in Octam! Yeah! That means Hari is here, right? He's
the one who can tell me what my dreams mean!

{Noa runs up the building's stairs}

Noa: Hari!

{Noa runs to the other side of the building}

Noa: So where is Hari?

{Noa runs down the other set of stairs}

Noa: Come out, Hari! I want you to tell me what my dreams mean!

{Gala walks over to Noa and put his hand on her shoulder}

Gala: Noa, wait! Calm down! You must calm down!

Noa: But...

Gala: Listen! Look around you! Octam is enveloped in the Mist! Could
any ordinary human beings survive here?

Noa: But I just...

Gala: Noa, forget about Hari for now! We can look for him when the Mist
is gone.

Noa: You're so mean, Gala! Waa! Waa! Wait, I know! The Genesis Tree! If
we find it, we can drive out the Mist! Terra! Terra! Tell me, is the
Genesis Tree close by?

Terra: I am sorry, Noa. Unfortunately, I do not sense the presence of a
Genesis Tree here.

Noa: No! It's not fair! Waaa!

{Noa pushes passed Gala and walks toward Vahn}

Noa: Vahn! What do you think?

1) Let's at least look around.
2) We must save the world first.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Let's at least look around.

{Noa blows Vahn a kiss}

Noa: Oh, Vahn, you're my favorite! So there, Gala! You have to do
whatever Vahn says.

Gala: Very well, then. But if we don't find anything, Noa, then...you
must forget about Octam and about Hari.

{Noa turns around and frowns in frustration}

Noa: (Silence)

Gala: But, Vahn, there is something that troubles me. In Mist-covered
towns there are always people possessed by Seru. But I detect none
here. If we must search the town, let's be very careful.

Noa: Gala, you talk like such a big shot! Vahn, let's look for Hari!
======================================================================

2) We must save the world first.

Noa: Boo hoo! {Noa starts crying} Waaa!

Meta: Vahn, I know you are anxious, but look around you! The Mist is
here, but there are no signs of people possessed by Seru.

Terra: There must be a reason.

Ozma: Perhaps we should investigate.

Noa: See! Meta and Ozma say we should look around!

Gala: Hmm.

Noa: Vahn, let's look around the town!

Gala: I suppose we must. We may learn some new things as well.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{The Ra-Seru heroes explore the town and eventually find themselves
within the Rem Shrine in Octam's main building. Four stone statues with
different symbols give clues for a gate of some kind}

Narration: Weathered letters on the stone statue read: "North Gate, The
Key is Earth."

Narration: Weathered letters on the stone statue read: "East Gate, The
Key is Wind."

Narration: Weathered letters on the stone statue read: "South Gate, The
Key is Water."

Narration: Weathered letters on the stone statue read: "West Gate, The
Key is Fire."

{After reading the clues on the stone statues the heroes discover that
large books titled "Book of Prophecy" lay on pedestals on opposite ends
of the room. Vahn, Noa and Gala read them one-by-one}

Book of Prophecy - Volume 1: To those who walk in the Mist: This is the
First Prophecy. Read it well. Be warned! Take heed! The Mist is Death
in disguise! The Mist is a cradle of madness! History warns us: The
Mist stops time. The Mist brings chaos. When the evil Mist appears from
the west horizon, leave everything and run for your lives! The god Rem
awaits you all, in the hot depths of the earth. Until the heroes of Ra-
Seru defeat the Mist...

Book of Prophecy - Volume 2: To those who walk in the Mist: This is the
Second Prophecy. Read it well. When reality turns into a nightmare and
when nightmares bring despair, the god Rem is the last hope. Rem leads
humans to the depths of the Earth, and in his bosom destroys the Mist
nightmare. But hear this, heroes of Ra-Seru, those who walk through the
Mist! Thou must show a sign of being the heroes of Ra-Seru! The path to
Rem's bosom is ever steep and hidden in darkness. Gather at the Gate of
Shadows! The path to Rem's bosom can be found only there.

Book of Prophecy - Volume 3: To those who walk in the Mist: This is the
Third Prophecy. Read it well. The path to Rem's bosom is at the Gate of
Shadows. However, the mouth of the Gate of Shadows is shut. The Gate of
Shadows is a stone flower. Only words carved on the Four Faces make the
flower bloom. Speak to the Four Faces. Find the words engraved in the
Face and engrave them in thine hearts.

Book of Prophecy - Volume 4: To those who walk in the Mist: This is the
Fourth Prophecy. Read it well. The Gate of Shadows is a stone flower.
The words of the Four Faces will cause a great flower to bloom.
However, for the true Gate born in the flower, seek out the Key. That
Key is the Star Pearl, a silent treasure that slumbers deep under the
Palace of Rem. The Star Pearl will open the true Gate. Heroes, pass and
take the ancient path to Rem's bosom.

{After reading all of the books the Ra-Seru heroes can hear a faint
rumbling}

Narration: In the distance, the sound of some machine operating is
heard.

{The pedestal holding the 4th volume of the Book of Prophecy moves to
one side and reveals a hidden staircase}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Stairs! There are stairs there now! Wow!

Gala: The secret will be revealed when you read the four books. So this
is what the message Hari gave to Sashia meant. That Star Peal must be
at the bottom of the stairs. Vahn, let's go down the stairs.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head down the stairs of the hidden passageway and
reach a large elevator at the bottom of the room}

Alluring Voice: Well, well! So you're here to look for treasure, too?

{Vahn, Noa and Gala rush over from the side of the elevator and get
ready for battle}

Noa: Who are you?

Gala: What are you doing here?

Alluring Voice: Ha, ha, ha!

{A young woman with pink hair steps into view}

Mystery Woman: What am I doing? Some greeting that is! I should be
asking you what you're doing here! But let me introduce myself. I am
Cara, a two-bit thief!

Noa: I'm Noa! This is Vahn and Gala!

Gala: Cara! I ask you again! What are you doing here?

{Cara laughs at Gala's inquiry}

Cara: Oh, you make me laugh! I'm doing what you are - Sneak thieving!

Noa: Sneak thieving? What's that?

Gala: It's something bad! It's stealing from people!

{Noa runs over to Cara and throws her arms out in protest}

Noa: That's wrong! Sneak thieving is wrong! I hate bad people!

{Cara gets an irritated look on her face}

Cara: Ha! Give me a break! Stop talking like a goodie two-shoes! You
mean you're going home empty handed, even though everyone ran away and
the town is deserted?

Gala: What did you just say? Everyone ran away?

{Cara pushes passed them and knocks her hand on the elevator door}

Cara: Oh, boy, you guys are really clueless! That's right! Everyone's
gone! They knew the Mist was coming, and took the elevator to an
underground shelter to hide.

Noa: Underground? Shelter? So he's still alive! Hari's still alive!
Let's take the elevator and go find him!

Cara: Sorry, kid, but the elevator won't work. It's locked, probably as
a safety precaution.

Noa: Oh, boo hoo!

{Cara walks passed the Ra-Seru heroes}

Cara: Oh, brother. Uh, say...if it's valuables you're after, there are
none here! The townspeople must have taken everything with them when
they went underground.

{Cara does a backward flip in the air and lands at the room's entrance}

Cara: The only thing I found was some measly jewel, called the Star
Pearl, or something.

Gala: Wait a minute, Cara! The Star Pearl! Where is it?

{Cara turns around and laughs}

Cara: You want that piece of junk? Ha, ha, ha! Well, then, I'll tell
you where it is! I palmed the Star Pearl off on a jeweler in...Jeremi,
I think. His name was Zalan or something.

Gala: Cara, wait! We still have much to ask you!

{Cara coyly walks over to the entrance and turns around}

Cara: Oh, yeah? Well I don't have anything to say to you! See you
later!

{Cara rushes off without another word}

Gala: I don't get it. How can she travel through the Mist at will -
without a Ra-Seru?

Noa: The Star Pearl! Vahn, Zalan in Jeremi has the Star Pearl!

{Vahn and Noa nod at each other in agreement and exit Octam}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{The Ra-Seru heroes arrive in Jeremi once more and head in to Zalan's
shop}

Zalan: Oh, hello! I've been waiting for you. Did you give my wife and
son the letter I asked you to deliver?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Zalan: Oh. My wife and son should still be in Vidna...
======================================================================

1) Yes

Narration: Vahn gave Yuma's ring to Zalan.

Zalan: This...this is the ring I gave to Yuma! (Silence)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Zalan shakes his head at the floor in grief}

Zalan: I see. So Yuma is no longer with us. I wish I could have stayed
by her side. That's my only regret! (Silence) But thank goodness Pepe
is safe! Someday, when the Mist is gone, I will go to Vidna! I will go
to see Pepe! I know that you can make that day come! Please wait a
moment.

{Zalan walks over to his cabinet at the other end of the room and comes
back with an item as a reward}

Zalan: This is a token of my appreciation. Please take it.

Narration: Vahn now has Zalan's Crown!

Zalan: I'm just a humble jeweler, but if there's ever anything I can do
for you...please let me know.

Noa: Zalan! Can I ask you something?

Zalan: What?

Noa: Do you know about the Star Pearl?

Zalan: !

Gala: Noa! You can't just ask out of the blue like that!

Zalan: Ha, ha, ha! Yes, Noa, I know of the Star Pearl. In fact...

{Zalan reaches into his desk drawer}

Zalan: Here it is!

Noa: Wow! Neat! It's the Star Pearl! Can I have it? Please!

Zalan: Of course you may. I have no use for it. Here you are!

Narration: Vahn now has the Star Pearl!

Zalan: A shifty looking female thief palmed it off on me. It has no
value as a precious gem. I would've never thought something like this
would make someone so happy! Thank you so much, everyone. From the
bottom of my heart.

Noa's Dream #3
**************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala decide to rest for the night. As she sleeps, Noa is
once again contacted in a dream. Two orbs shine as Noa sits in
darkness}

Mother: Dear...can you feel it? It's Noa! I feel Noa's presence.

Orb: Ah, Noa! I can sense her, too! It's Noa! My daughter! So
warm...Such a pure heart. She's growing up healthily. She seems to have
made some wonderful friends.

{Noa wakes up}

Noa: Who is it? Who's there?

Father: ...Can you hear me? It's me...your father...

Noa: My father? Father! Is it you, Father? Is Mother there, too?

Father: Yes. Both of us are watching over you, Noa!

Noa: I...I want to see you, Father! I want to see Mother, too!

Father: And we want to see you. But...We are trapped in eternal
darkness. All we...can do...is send you...our words...through your pure
heart...in your dreams...It pains me...to send you...our words...like
this...

Noa:  Father!

{Noa's father's orb fades and disappears. Her mother's orb starts to
disappear}

Mother: Mother...wants to see you, too...Noa...We're...waiting for
you...

{Noa runs after the sound of her mother's voice in complete darkness}

Noa: Just hang on, Mother and Father. I'll be there soon! I'm coming.
I'll go to where the deepest Mist is to see you!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala try to enter the town of Ratayu in the northwest of
the Sebucus Islands. However, a large fissure with boiling hot steam
rising out of it blocks their entrance into the town}

Noa: Vahn! Over here! There's a town here! Wow! No, Vahn! There's thick
smoke coming out! It's too hot! We can't go there!

Gala: It's superheated steam! It's too hot to jump over.

Noa: Vahn! I don't like this place. I want to leave here!

Gala: Vahn! It's no use. We have to turn back.

*Vahn tries to enter again

Noa: Vahn! It's hot here! I said I didn't want to come here! It's too
hot here! Vahn, let's go back!

*Vahn tries again

Noa: I don't want to go! It's stupid to hurt yourself!

Gala: Vahn, I have endured much out of respect for you as our leader,
but...

Meta: Vahn! Are you listening? They are only saying what is reasonable!
Even I can't figure you out anymore. Could the kind of person who hurts
himself save the world?! So stop worrying about the heat. Let's go!

Noa: Vahn, hang in there! I believe in you!

Gala: The Mist is getting thicker! I can tell! Vahn, let's get out of
here!

Off-Screen: Oh, what a letdown!

{A pillar of smoking rises out of the large Stone Petal in the middle
of the Gate of Shadows. A ninja with green hair and a mask on his face
appears out of the smoke}

Ninja: I finally get to see the Ra-Seru heroes who defeated Zeto - and
they turn out to be kids!

{The ninja jumps down from the Stone Petal}

Noa: Who are you?

{The ninja pulls out his blade and strikes a ridiculous pose}

Ninja: Gi Delilas, at your service!

{The Ra-Seru heroes get ready in their fighting stances}

Gi Delilas: That Zeto is pretty pitiful to let a bunch of brats like
you defeat him!

Gala: You! That Seru you're wearing!

Noa: Is this a bad person, like Songi and Zeto?

Gi Delilas: A "bad person"? Oh, brother. Hey, blue-headed brat! You
seem to be the leader of this kindergarten class.

1) I'm the leader! Me, Vahn!
2) A-Actually, Noa's in charge.
3) Obviously, Gala's our leader.

Fight me one on one!

{Noa starts to pout at Gi's challenge}

Noa: Hey! How come you want to fight just Vahn and not me?

Gi Delilas: One-on-one combat is a Delilas family tradition. I'll fight
you later. Well, Vahn? Don't run away! Fight me!

1) Bring it on!
2) No

1) Bring it on!

Gi Delilas: I see. Alright, I'll be right there!

Female Ninja: Yes, I see.

Gala: What are you whispering about there? Who are you?

{A glint shines in Gi Delilas' left eye}

Gi Delilas: You want to know our names? {Noa nods "yes"} Ha, ha! Very
well!

{Gi Delilas turns around to face the Ra-Seru heroes}

Gi Delilas: I'm Gi Delilas, expert at delivering a fatal blow to an
opponent's body!

{Gi Delilas strikes his ridiculous pose}

Lu Delilas: I am Lu Delilas! I strike with lightning speed!

{Lu Delilas strikes her ridiculous pose}

Che Delilas: I am Che Delilas! Brute strength and chaos are what I am
about!

pose. The Delilas trio poses together one more time}

Delilas Family: We are the Delilases!

Gi Delilas: Vahn, I thought we could play together, but now I don't
have the time. I'll let you live for now! But next time I see you, I'll
have your life!

{The Delilas Family disappears in a cloud of smoke. Noa starts to mimic
Lu Delilas' pose. Vahn stares at Noa's antics and Gala shrugs in
embarrassment}

Gala: Noa! What are you doing? We don't have time to play!

Noa: Boo-hoo!

{The stone fully opens into a rose petal that the Ra-Seru heroes can
now climb. In the middle is a sphere-shaped liquid}

Noa: Oh, wow! Look! Vahn, look! The big stone flower opened!

Gala: Vahn! Look! The center of the stone flower! Some strange thing is
moving! That must be the entrance to the path leading to underground
Octam.

{The Ra-Seru heroes run up the stone flower}

earthquake begins to shake the town}

Off-Screen: Earthquake! It's an earthquake!

{A man runs out of the largest building in town}

Man: Everyone, run!

{Another man and a woman run out of the building. A crowd looks at a
house on a pillar that is shaking uncontrollably}

Unknown Voice: Look at Debora's house! It's going to collapse!

{A woman rushes out of the house and falls onto the ground due to the
quake}

Debora: Arrgh! It's shaking! Someone, help me!

{The pillar begins to tilt and Debora starts to slide down the pillar}

Debora: (Silence)

off. A man rushes to the walkway's end and urges her to jump. She lands
safely just before the pillar holding her house sinks into the earth
below}

an incompetent mayor I am! Ha ha! If only Hari would awaken, then we
could do something about the situation. This is a dangerous place, so

{Vahn finds Kina waiting at the bottom of the staircase}

Kina: Don't you know that Hari is awake? I'll take you there even if I
have to drag you there! Prepare yourselves! The Vuuuulture Blaaaade!

{Kina spins around and does the Vulture Blade attack, knocking Vahn into
the wall behind him and causing him to collapse onto the floor. The
screen turns red and then cuts to Vahn standing in front of Kina outside}

Kina: What are you doing? I said that Hari is awake now!

******************
End Optional Event
******************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala arrive at the Palace of Meditation and speak to the
three bodies of Hari on the bottom floor}

Hari of the Past: I am Hari of the Past. I shall reveal to you the
headwaters of the flow of time. Are you ready to hear about the past?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Hari: Rem is the god of the three faces. It is up to you which face you
wish to see. However, once you see one face, you may not leave without
seeing the other two. Once you are ready to hear the past, you have
only to speak to me.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Hari of the Past: The start of your journey is the inevitability of
time that connects the past to the present! The interrelation among the
Mist, Seru and Ra-Seru is part of the inevitability of time. Beyond the
human world in which we live is the home of the Seru, the Seru-kai. All
Seru in the human world are born of the Seru-kai. Human world and Seru-
kai are indivisible, but the two worlds were destined to remain apart.
However, an unfortunate accident allowed the Seru to enter the human
world. Humankind learned of the Seru's power and built civilization.
But people depended on Seru too much, and it warped the human spirit,
leading to great tragedy. At the heart of the Mist is a demon! Even
through Rem's eyes its true nature in unclear. This demon, neither
human nor Seru, used the Mist to destroy the world! It is no
coincidence that you have been chosen by the Ra-Seru! Fight with all
your strength! The power of the Genesis Trees is with you! This is the
Rem of the past. Did you watch closely? Did you listen closely?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Hari: Then do you wish to watch once more? To listen once more?
======================================================================

a. Yes

Hari of the Past: I have told you all of Rem's words. I will now go
back to sleep. (Silence)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Hari of the Past closes his eyes and floats back down to his cradle}

**********************************************
Optional Event: Mayor Stops the Ra-Seru Heroes
**********************************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala attempt to leave before speaking to the final two
bodies of Hari. The Mayor comes running down the stairs and blocks their
path}

Mayor: Where are you going? Wait! I can't let you pass. I can't do
anything on my own! So I can't let you leave! Please go back and listen
to everything Hari has to say. That's the only way to save the town.

{The Mayor sits down on the staircase in front of them}

* Vahn, Noa and Gala try to leave again

Mayor: Ha ha ha! But don't concern yourself with me. I'll wait here
until you are finished speaking to him.

******************
End Optional Event
******************

{The Ra-Seru heroes walk over to Hari of the Present to listen to his
words}

Hari of the Present: I am the Hari of the Present. I shall tell you
what drifts on the surface of time. Are you ready to hear about the
present?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Hari: Rem is the god of the three faces. It is up to you which face you
wish to see. However, once you see one face, you may not leave without
seeing the other two. Once you are ready to hear the present, you have
only to speak to me.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Hari of the Present: The Mist's henchmen are in the last stage. They
plan to destroy the world completely! They are now tenaciously pursuing
us - who have barely survived the Mist's attack. They are now raising
an army to kill legions or turn them into Seru monsters! Deep below
Octam, at the bottom of the Fire Path, are their henchmen! Vahn, Noa,
Gala! Use the powers of your holy Seru to destroy the demon's henchmen!
That is the only way to save this town from danger! The only way to
save the world from imminent annihilation is to save each individual
life! Fight with all your strength! The power of the Genesis Trees is
with you! That's the Rem of the present. Did you watch closely? Did you
listen closely?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Hari: Then do you wish to watch once more? To listen once more?
======================================================================

a. Yes

Hari of the Present:
I have told you all of Rem's words. I will now go back to sleep.
(Silence)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Hari of the Present closes his eyes and floats back down to his
cradle. The Ra-Seru heroes walk over to Hari of the Future to listen to
his words}

Hari of the Future: I am the Hari of the Future. I shall tell you the
destination of the flow of time. Are you ready to hear about the
future?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Hari: Rem is the god of the three faces. It is up to you which face you
wish to see. However, once you see one face, you may not leave without
seeing the other two. Once you are ready to hear the future, you have
only to speak to me.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Hari of the Future: Unfortunately, the shadow of the Mist also covers
the future. Even with the divine powers of Rem it is not possible to
see into the future. I can tell you this only. Listen well. Vahn, a
horrible tragedy will shatter your hopes. Noa, your parents are still
alive! They are in Conkram, in Karisto Kingdom!

Noa: Did you hear that? Vahn, let's go to Karisto Kingdom! Let's go to
Conkram!

Hari of the Future: Yes. If you go to Conkram, Noa, you will see your
parents! But beware! Seeing them will disturb you greatly. And you,
Gala! In Songi you will find a nightmare awaiting. Remember - Songi is
your shadow, your alter ego. Viewed as part of the flow of time,
tragedy and salvation are two sides of the same coin. You yourselves
may pull the trigger and cause nightmares to happen. But as long as
there is hope, the deep, swift flow of the river of time may fulfill
your hopes. Fight with all your strength! The power of the Genesis
Trees is with you! This is the Rem of the future. Did you watch
closely? Did you listen closely?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Hari: Then do you wish to watch once more? To listen once more?
======================================================================

a. Yes

Hari of the Future: I have told you all of Rem's words. I will now go
back to sleep. (Silence)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Hari of the Future closes his eyes and floats back down to his cradle}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Don't forget! We have to go to Conkram! Conkram!

{Gala closes his eyes}

Gala: Songi is my shadow? What on earth could that mean?

{As the Ra-Seru heroes reach the stairs to leave the Palace of
Meditation they are stopped by the mayor of Octam}

Mayor: I heard the good news! So you're going to save this town! The
Fire Path of which Hari spoke is a tunnel to the northwest of the town.
I told the guards there to let you pass. Well then, I must be going. Ha
ha!

{The mayor takes another hearty laugh and leaves back to his building.
Vahn, Noa and Gala arrive outside and the pillar holding the Palace of
Meditation starts to shake}

Off-Screen: Earthquake! It's an earthquake!

Woman: E-E-Earthquake! W-We have to find shelter!

{A large tremor knocks the woman to the floor and brings a guard
outside to his knees. The woman gets up and tries to leave the pillar
but in a panic the guard rushes passed her and knocks her into the
ground. Vahn, Noa and Gala help the woman up. Vahn tries to rush inside
the Palace of Meditation to save the others but Gala stops him. A
priestess runs out of the building passed the Ra-Seru heroes and they
all run to the other end of the walkway before the Palace of Meditation
begins to sink into the depths below. The scene changes to Hari's room.
A priestess runs over to a nun watching Hari. The nun nods and the
priestess collapses to her knees. The pillar sinks completely into
darkness}

Off-Screen: Hari!

Narration: The earth opened up and swallowed Hari...

{The Ra-Seru heroes walk to the edge of their pillar and look below}

Hari: Vahn! Can you hear me, Vahn? Noa! Gala! Are you there?

{The Ra-Seru heroes look toward the direction of Hari's voice as three
floating spheres rise into the air in front of them}

Hari: Vahn, Noa, Gala. I knew that the earth would swallow us up.
Everything that happens is predestined in the heart of Rem, god of
time. But, heroes of the Ra-Seru! You must not forget the mission with
which you have been entrusted! The Hari of the Present ordered you to
first head to the Fire Path. Destroy the henchmen of the Mist who have
brought calamity to Octam. That will open the door to a new future for
you. The three faces of Rem are watching over you. We will meet some
day, at an unexpected place. Fight with all your strength! The power of
the Genesis Trees is with you!

{The three orbs of Hari rise farther into the air and disappear}

Noa: Vahn...is Hari...is he..is Hari dead?

1) I think he may be gone after all
2) Hari could never die!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I think he may be gone after all

Noa: Boo hoo! Now I'll never get to talk to Hari again! I'll never get
to ask him anything again!
======================================================================

2) Hari could never die!

Noa: You're right. Hari could never die!

Gala: I don't mean to be cruel, but...you must both face reality! No
one, not even Hari, could live through all that! You heard Hari's last
words! He's dead!

Noa: Don't say that! Gala, you're so mean! You have a cold heart!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gala: Before he died Hari told us to save Octam, right? Noa! You can
feel sad later! But now we have to do what Hari instructed! That's the
best way to respect his memory! Am I right, Vahn?

1)Yes, you're right...
2)No, you're wrong!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes, you're right...

Noa: Yeah, you're right!
======================================================================

2) No, you're wrong!

Noa: Vahn, I understand! Gala is right!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noa: The Fire Path! That's where Hari said the Mist's henchmen are!
Let's go to the Fire Path and get those Mist henchmen! Let's knock
their blocks off!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala enter the Fire Path in the northwest of town}

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head down the Fire Path. They are stopped by a
large tremor}

Noa: Vahn! Look at the stone pillar! It's moving!

{The massive stone pillar behind them trembles ferociously and settles
down after a few seconds}

Gala: This is bad, Vahn. That pillar is holding up the town of Octam!

{An aftershock shakes the entire area}

Noa: No! I don't want to see anything sad happen anymore!

Gala: Noa's right! Let's hurry down there! If we hurry, it might not be
too late!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head deeper into the Fire Path. They come across a
volcanic underground and lava surrounds them everywhere}

Gala: Vahn, no good...the lava is blocking our way. We can't go any
further.

{Noa throws a quick tantrum but stops to examine the ground in front of
her. She notices a floating rock in front of her that's large enough to
support all of them}

Noa: Vahn, we can use this! We can climb this and get across!

{Noa hops onto the platform and begins to float across the lava}

Gala: Wait, Noa! Don't go by yourself!

{Noa heads back toward them}

Noa: Woah! Weee! Vahn! Gala! This is awesome!

{Noa jumps off the platform and joins Vahn and Gala}

Gala: Vahn, it looks like there's no other way.

Noa: Vahn, what are you waiting for? Hurry! Let's go!

{The Ra-Seru heroes jump onto the floating rock and travel across the
molten lava until they spot a half Minotaur half Centaur creature. It
charges at the pillar in front of it and punches it. The platform
holding up Octam trembles}

Xain: Don't interrupt me! I'm doing something important ordered by
Dohati!

{Xain gets ready to charge at the pillar again but is interrupted}

Xain: Didn't you hear me? I said I'm in the middle of something
important! We can talk after I push over this stone pillar and kill
everyone above us!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala try to get his attention once more}

Xain: Hey! You don't take no for an answer, do you? What on earth do
you want? Hey, those Seru on your arms...those...those are...Ra-Seru,
aren't they?

{Xain steps back a bit}

Xain: Oh, no! Just my luck! That means you guys...are the enemy, right?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Xain: Alright, alright! I'll fight you! All three of you, come at me at
once!
======================================================================

2) No

Xain: Whew! I guess I was wrong. Ha ha! Am I glad! Don't worry about
me. I'll be concentrating on this, so just watch me from over there.
Killing humans who disobey the Mist is so much fun! Alright, here we
go!

{Xain charges at the pillar in front of him and punches it}

Xain: What is it?! You keep interrupting me. Are you my enemy?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Xain: O.K., O.K. I know you want to cheer me on, but just be quiet
about it, alright?
======================================================================

a. Yes

Xain: Uh-oh! Oooohhh! Oh, this is not my day! You guys are the enemy!
Ah, shucks! Why didn't you say so before?! Dohati will get mad at me if
I don't kill you. So, come on, come at me!

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+

Xain: You got me! I never thought you guys were this strong! I've lost
my host body...now I'm going to die...I bet you're happy! You're as
happy as can be over defeating me, aren't you! I can't stand it! Just
looking at your face makes the anger swell up in me! I'm going to use
what strength I have left to bother you! Now watch with your own eyes
and see what will happen...because you defeated me! Watch in vexation!
Ha ha ha!

{Xain floats toward the lava}

Xain: This is my curse on you! My anger! The energy of my revenge! The
absolute power of darkness!

{Xain plunges into the lava. In a flash the rocks and lava underground
are both frozen solid}

Noa: It hardened! Xain made the lava hard! Boo-hoo! Vahn, I'm cold! I
hate the cold! Hurry! Let's go back to Octam!

Gala: I never knew the Seru of the Mist had the power to freeze molten
lava! Vahn, the danger to the town above is over for the time being,
but...what Xain said troubles me. I have a bad feeling about this.
Vahn, let's go back up and check out the situation.

{The Ra-Seru heroes travel back up the Fire Path and walk outside the
entrance. The guard greets them as they arrive}

Guard: Welcome back! You did it! You defeated the henchmen of the Mist
who were underground, right?

1) Yes

Noa: You got that right! We taught that Xain a lesson!
======================================================================

2) No

Guard:
What?

Noa: No! We did! We did! Vahn, what are you saying? Did you forget? We
defeated Xain, remember?!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Guard: Ah, I knew it! When the ground stopped shaking, all the
townspeople knew you were successful, and started cheering! Please, go
up and talk to them. They'll be very happy. Oh, and the mayor is
waiting for you. Please go see him if you have the time.

Noa: OK!

{The guard takes a knee and looks into the depths below}

Guard: Say, it's a little cold here, isn't it? Did something happen?

Gala: Hmm. In their last moments, the enemies froze the depths of the
earth.

Guard: What?! Yes. I only hope that nothing bad happens because of
that.

{Gala shrugs}

Gala: What could those henchmen of the Mist be thinking? It's a mystery
to me.

Guard: That's right. Whatever will happen later on will happen. But
now, thank you, everyone!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head over to meet the mayor of Octam}

Mayor: Thank you! Ha ha! Thank you so much! Ha ha! It's all thanks to
you! Ha! Ha ha ha! This is what you'd call a smile of satisfaction! I'm
so happy, words can't describe! Say, I have a favor to ask of you. Ha
ha! Would you bring me some Spring Salts from Vidna? That's a town
known for its hot springs.  I am prepared to reward you. I hope you can
do this for me. Ha ha! One more thing! I have instructed the guards to
let you use the elevator. Please use it! Ha ha!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala walk to the elevator room and ride it up to the Rem
Shrine in Mist-infected Octam}

{Mist covers the town of Vidna and Seru and Seru monsters run rampant
over the town}

Noa: Vahn!

{Noa runs toward the town inn and Vahn follows close behind}

Noa: The Mist! Vidna is covered in the Mist! What's going on?

Gala: Both of you, look!

{Gala points them in the direction of the windmills surrounding Vidna}

Gala: The windmills that were protecting Vidna from the Mist. They've
stopped. Hmm. You don't suppose it's because the magma cooled? The
effects could have spread this far. What irony!

Noa: Vahn...

{Noa hangs her head in sadness}

Gala: Vahn, let's see if anyone's still alive.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala run over to the underground shelter at Danpas'
house}

Narration: Vahn and the others pressed the elevator button!

Off-Screen:

1) No
2) Yes

1) No

Off-Screen: (Silence)

Off-Screen: Oh, thank goodness! So there are still other humans not
possessed by Seru. Go ahead, get in. I'll start the elevator.

{The Ra-Seru heroes go down the elevator and discover a group of
townspeople who have managed to avoid death or possession by Seru. Vahn,

flowing out of it}

Meta: Vahn! Don't move! Wait a moment.

Terra: I sense something. Noa, can you? Do you sense it?

Ozma: It's a Genesis Tree! There's a Genesis Tree nearby!

Meta: But wait...the Genesis Tree's energy level is fluctuating
wildly...what does this mean?

Terra: The Genesis Tree is to the east! Let's pass through the town and
head east!

{The Ra-Seru heroes head into the doors leading into Ratayu. They come
to a large door that leads to Mt. Letona, the location of the Genesis
Tree. Unfortunately the door is locked and a notice reads that the key
must be obtained from the Lord of Ratayu, Saryu. The Ra-Seru heroes
enter Ratayu's castle and walk up to the throne in the Throne Room}

Noa: Who is that?

Gala: What's the matter?

{Saryu moves toward the Ra-Seru heroes}

Saryu: A visitor...I, Saryu, am pleased. I have something nice for you.

Gala: Saryu? You're possessed by a Seru...how can you speak to us?

Saryu: I cannot understand difficult words...I give you the key to
Letona.

Narration: Vahn now has the Letona Key!

Saryu: The Letona Key will open the gate. You can reach Mt. Letona's
Genesis Tree there. The Mist can be driven from Ratayu. Then I can be
with my bride. I am pleased. I give you this West Ratayu Key, too.

{Saryu walks back to his throne}

Noa: Alright! I didn't understand everything, but I got the part about
the Genesis Tree!

Gala: I think he'll give us a key to reach the Mist Generator, if we
revive the Genesis Tree. It sounds good, but something troubles me...

Noa: But Saryu said something about brides! Gala, let's help him!

Gala: Vahn, I will let you decide what to do.

Ozma:
The Genesis Tree must be at the summit!

Gala: With a Genesis Tree, we can make our Ra-Seru stronger, too!
Hurry, Vahn!

Terra: But what do those strange energy fluctuations mean? Could it be
something evil?

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Let's hurry and go see the new Genesis Tree!

Gala: I hope the Genesis Tree is alright! Come! We must hurry to the
summit, Vahn!

{The Ra-Seru heroes head up Mt. Letona and soon reach the summit where
the Genesis Tree lies. A transparent pyramidsurrounds the Genesis Tree}

Gala: There's something strange surrounding the Genesis Tree! What is
this? I've never seen anything like it!

Noa: Vahn, this is weird! It's a spooky wall! Let me touch it...

{Noa walks over to the wall and pokes it. She is instantly repelled
backward and lands on her back. Vahn and Gala crouch down to check on
her}

Noa: Ow! Vahn! It hurts! Don't touch it, everyone, it hurts!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala begin to head back down the mountain to look for
other leads but are stopped by an all too familiar person}

Songi: Well, well. If it isn't my favorite group of idiots! Welcome
back! What took you guys so long? I figured you simpletons would be
coming, so I was waiting here for you.

{Songi does his patented backward flips and lands in front of the
Genesis Tree. Vahn, Noa and Gala head over to him and Noa gets prepared
in her fighting stance}

Songi: It took you long enough, you lazy dimwits!

Gala: Songi! Darn! So it was you who put up that force field!

Songi: So you're not just a musclebound moron, are you? That's right!
It was me!

{Songi back flips onto the top of his force field}

Songi: I put up that force field to keep you idiots from trying any of
your foolish tricks!

{Songi flashes his Ra-Seru}

Songi: Ha, ha, ha! Well, do you want me to deactivate it?

Gala: Of course we do!

{Songi jumps down from the force field and morphs into a hideous
appearance of his former self}

Songi: Well, then, fight me! Come at me! All three of you, at once! In
the very unlikely event you defeat me, I'll deactivate the force field.

Songi: Ah, so you have gotten much stronger since our last meeting,
have you? I am impressed! Your Seru are strong, as well. Not bad!

Gala: Stop talking and deactivate the force field right now!

Songi: Well, a promise is a promise. Alright, I'll deactivate it! Watch
and learn!

{Songi casually walks over to the force field and raises his hands. A
bright light surrounds the force field and in a few seconds it is gone}

Songi: There, you see? I am a person who keeps a promise. Now you are
free to wake up the Genesis Tree. Use the Genesis Tree's power to drive
away the Mist and make your Ra-Seru stronger! I eagerly await your next
feat of bravery! So don't get yourselves killed! Farewell!

{Songi takes off and bolts down the mountain}

Gala: That blasted Songi! But he left so peacefully. I can't figure him
out.

Noa: Vahn! Hurry! Let's awaken the Genesis Tree!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala surround the Genesis Tree}

Narration: Vahn gently touched the trunk of the Genesis Tree. Vahn
feels a gentle warmth in the palm of his hand.

Narration: Noa gently touched the trunk of the Genesis Tree. Noa feels
a quiet strength in the palm of her hand.

Narration: Gala gently touched the trunk of the Genesis Tree. Gala
feels pure joy in the palm of his hand.

{The power from the Ra-Seru revives the Genesis Tree and drives away the
Mist from Mt. Letona and Ratayu}

Narration: With the power of the Genesis Tree, Meta's level increased
to Lv5. Terra's level increased to Lv4. Ozma's level increased to Lv3.

Noa: Vahn! Terra is strong again! Isn't this great? And the Genesis
Tree's power drove away the Mist down below.

1) If Vahn and the others traveled to Vidna after fighting Xain

Gala: The Mist must be gone now from Ratayu. But the Genesis Tree's
power is limited. Unless we destroy the Mist Generator, the Mist will
cover Vidna where the windmills stopped.

remains in the Sebucus Islands and Octam.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noa: Yeah, that's right. OK! Let's destroy the Mist Generator!

Gala: Vahn, let's climb down the mountain and head for the town below,
Ratayu. If we can get the Gate of Ratayu opened, we can reach the Mist
Generator.

                                                                [a209]

{The Ra-Seru heroes head back into Ratayu}

********************************
Optional Event: Speak with Saryu
********************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head back to the palace to speak with Saryu}

Saryu: The Mist...was born due to a mistake. I...am grateful. You
destroyed...it. My successor, much difficulty will he have...because
you destroyed...Mist. But I am pleased...You have my gratitude. The
Mist...has made me very tired...Rest...I wish to rest. You...may
leave...That's an...order.

******************
End Optional Event
******************

{Vahn and the others rest in the town Inn to wait for Saryu to feel
better. Inside, they find a letter on the counter}

                               Saryu's Letter:
                            Harvest Month, Day 5
                      You are fortunate to be able to
                           give your life for our
                               great mission!
                              Be happy, Eliza!
                        You have been chosen to be
                               a Seru bride!
                            Tomorrow I will send
                           guards to retrieve you.
                     Clear your mind, purify your body,
                                  and wait.
                                 Bon Saryu,
                              Lord of Ratayu.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala see a woman dressed in a purple bridal gown after
reading the letter and decide to speak with her. According to the
people inside the inn, she is the innkeeper's daughter}

Eliza: So you drove out the Mist. How do you do? I am called Eliza. I
have been chosen by Saryu to be a Seru bride. Soon the soldiers will
take me away. But, please, don't worry about me. After all, I'm
fortunate not to have died in the Mist...and all of my good friends
have already gone to the castle, too. And besides, if I don't go to the
castle, my parents will be hurt...or worse. I have heard that you are
the heroes who drove out the Mist. That's why I have a favor to ask
you. I'm concerned about my parents. Please check up on them once in a
while after I'm gone.

{Noa runs in front of Vahn and throws her arms in protest}

Noa: No, Vahn! Vahn! We can't let Eliza go! Don't let her be a Seru
bride! I'll...I'll go in her place. I'll be the Seru bride instead! I'm
strong! I won't die! So, Vahn! Let me go instead of Eliza! Please!

2) No
1) OK
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Noa: You're so mean, Vahn! If Eliza goes she'll die! So let me go
instead! OK?
======================================================================

1) OK

Noa: Thank you, Vahn! I knew you would understand. But don't worry
about me. Terra is with me, so we'll get that Saryu. Wait, Eliza. After
I get ready, I'm going to go to the castle in your place.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{The Ra-Seru heroes rest up and put on their proper equipment and
accessories. After doing so they meet back with Eliza}

Eliza: Are you sure it's alright for Noa to go as a Seru bride in my
place?

2) No
1) Yes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

{Vahn and the others walk away}
======================================================================

1) Yes

Noa: I'll be alright! Don't worry about me! Here, give me that dress!

Eliza: Oh, I am so fortunate!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn and Gala turn around as Noa takes the dress off of Eliza and
changes into it. The screen goes black and a knock is heard at the
door}

Off-Screen: We are here for the Seru bride! Open the door! Don't
disobey!

{Two guards from Saryu's palace enter the inn}

Guards: You seem to be all ready. Eliza! We are here for you, under
orders of Saryu!

{Noa follows one guard out the door. Vahn tries to go after them but
Gala bars his path. The other of Saryu's guards follows Noa from
behind. After they leave Eliza comes out of hiding}

Eliza: What have I done? I let Noa take my place!

{Noa follows the guards north through the town and into the palace. The
guards lead her into a chamber filled with various unidentifiable tubes
holding unknown substances}

Voice: Someone, help me...I can't hear anything...I can't see...oh, the
pain...

{Noa looks toward the right side of the corridor to find a previous
Seru bride floating inside a gigantic beaker. Noa turns to the guard
behind her and prepares to fight him but the guard raises his weapon
and a guard runs up behind Noa. She stops her attempt to fight back and
is forcefully shoved forward by the guard behind her. They continue to
walk to the end of the corridor where two mad scientists are working. A
Seru bride lies still with her arms crossed, her gown turned grey.
Behind her is a hideous horned monster in an incubator}

Guard: Here we are. Now wait here for Saryu to arrive!

{The guards walk out of sight. Noa tries to speak to the frozen Seru
bride}

Bride of Seru: W-Who is it? I...can't...hear anything. I... can't...
see...

{Noa shakes the Seru bride and tries to get her back to consciousness.
The scientists notice her struggle}

Mad Scientist: Heh, heh, heh. Young girls are soooo nutritious.

Mad Scientist 2:
Heh, heh, heh. Not yet! It's not your turn!

Mad Scientists: Heh, heh, heh. Hee hee hee!

{Noa runs over to the mad scientist next to the control panel and
starts to shake him. As Noa tries to get his attention the horned
monster raises a large tail with a tubed end and holds it over the
frozen Seru bride. It opens its tail and sucks the Seru bride up}

Noa: Where did that woman go?

{The Seru bride suddenly appears in a large beaker}

Mad Scientists: Heh, heh, heh. You're next...

{Noa attemps to flee the underground laboratory}

Saryu: The bride of Seru is waiting, so I came.

{Saryu walks toward Noa with two guards accompanying him}

Saryu: You'll find more happiness as Juggernaut's flesh and blood than
living your own wretched life. So consider yourselves lucky to be brides
of Seru. Now be quiet! That's an order!

{Saryu points toward Noa and the guards raise their weapons}

Noa: Saryu, what you've done is unforgivable!

{Noa rushes at Saryu but his guards shock her with electric waves from
their weapons. Noa lies stunned on the floor}

Saryu: The brides are not dead. Their vigorous bodies live. Now,
connect them to the machine.

{The scene changes to the outside of the palace gate as Vahn and Gala
stand in front of it}

Meta: Vahn! I'm receiving contact from Terra! Terra is sending out a
warning!

Ozma: Gala! We must hurry! Noa is in danger!

Meta: Noa should be where Saryu is, so let's find Saryu.

Gala: Vahn, it looks like we're next!

**************
Optional Event
**************

{Vahn tries to enter the gate toward Mt. Letona}

Gala: Vahn! Where do you think you're going? Do you leave without Noa?!
Think of Noa, a prisoner somewhere in the depths of the palace!

{Vahn tries to exit Ratayu through the city's entrance}

Gala: Vahn! Where do you think you're going? Are you leaving without
Noa?! Think of Noa, a prisoner somewhere in the depths of the palace!

******************
End Optional Event
******************

{Vahn and Gala head into the palace. As they reach the chamber where
Noa was taken they are ambushed by the two Kemaro guarding the door}

+====================+
+Mini-Boss: Kemaro x2+
+====================+

{Vahn and Gala defeat both Kemaro}

+====================+
+End Mini-Boss Battle+
+====================+

{After defeating the Kemaro they rush into the chambers where the
Juggernaut and Noa are located. The scene changes to Saryu in front of
the monster}

Saryu: Soon, very soon. The brides of Seru will give you life.

Mad Scientist: Hee, hee, hee! Juggernaut is nearly full of life force.

{Vahn and Gala reach them}

Gala: Noa! We're here to save you!

{Juggernaut raises its tail to suck Noa up right as Vahn and Gala rush
toward her. Gala jumps into the air and punches Juggernaut's tail with
Ozma. The mad scientists flee}

Meta: It's time to give Noa our fighting powers!

{Meta and Ozma use their powers to remove the bridal gown from Noa and
restore her back to normal consciousness}

Noa: (Silence) Vahn? Gala? Oh, thank goodness!

{Noa gets off of her knees and wipes away her tears}

Noa: I never stopped believing! I knew I could count on my Vahn and
Gala!

{Saryu appears behind them}

Saryu: You can't "believe" anything! I haven't ordered you to believe!
You have done something I have not ordered. I don't like you! You must
die! Die! That's an order! I will kill you!

{Saryu's shadow begins to rise from the floor and envelops him, causing
him to transform. He turns around to attack}

+===============+
+Boss: Van Saryu+
+===============+

{Vahn, Noa and Gala defeat Saryu. At his defeat a Sim-Seru detaches
from Bon Saryu's head}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Terra: Look at that Seru. That is the Sim-Seru that was controlling
Saryu.

Gala: Blasted Sim-Seru! It deserves to be destroyed.

{The Sim-Seru levitates farther into the air and shatters. Vahn, Noa
and Gala check on Saryu. He gets up and moves his hand over his head}

Saryu: Oh, my aching head...

{Saryu notices the strange room he is in and looks all around him}

Saryu: W-Where am I? What room is this? ... (Silence)! (Surprise)

{Saryu notices the Juggernaut being created in front of him. He pushes
passed Vahn and starts to operate the control panel}

Saryu: No! The device is running! This machine must never be turned on!
Turn it off! You must turn it off!

{Juggernaut sinks into the incubator and disappears underground}

Saryu: Thank goodness! That must never reach the surface. It's...a
forbidden Seru.

{The scene changes and the Ra-Seru heroes are in front of Bon Saryu's
throne}

Saryu: I have caused you all so much trouble. Again, I thank you for
what you did for us.

{Saryu bows at the Ra-Seru heroes}

Saryu: Yes, I am entirely responsible for the tragedies that occurred
in this town. One day, a man named Dohati came to the castle with a
most unusual Seru. Foolishly, I put the Seru on. It was an evil Seru
they had created - a Sim-Seru! My mind was controlled by the Sim-Seru.
It made me turn on the device sealed underground. For Dohati, I made
Juggernaut and sacrificed many of the town's young women to do so. The
device's records show that I made one Juggernaut before the Mist came.
The Sim-Seru gave me only one command: to create an infinite number of
that monster! Ironically, that resulted in your helping us to revive
the Genesis Tree. Had it not been for you, I probably would have
remained a foolish puppet of the Mist. I will do anything for you! Ah,
yes - here! I give you this!

{Lord Saryu holds out his hand and Vahn walks forward to reach for his
reward}

(Vahn now has the West Ratayu Key.)

Saryu: That will enable you to get to Dohati's castle. Please destroy
the Mist's henchmen - Dohati and Juggernaut.

{The Ra-Seru heroes head back to the West Gate and use the West Ratayu
Key. They journey the long way south to the Mist Generator in the
Sebucus Islands.

{The Ra-Seru heroes reach Dohati's Castle and battle their way up the
fort until eventually reaching the room holding the Mist Generator}

Meta: Vahn! This is the Mist Generator that creates the Mist covering
the Sebucus Islands!

Terra: We can destroy this machine by combining our power!

Ozma: But be careful, everyone! I sense the presence of evil!

{The Ra-Seru heroes rush forward to the Mist Generator when a loud
voice booms through the air}

Dohati: What a fool, that Saryu of Ratayu. I give him a Sim-Seru, and
look at what he does. How naive! To enlist the powers of Ra-Seru in
creating Juggernaut...no doubt that is the best he can do with that
second-rate Sim-Seru.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala each look around. Dohati appears at the end of
the walkway, guarding the Mist Generator}

Dohati: I am Dohati, faithful servant of Cort and true ruler of
Sebucus! It is I who created Juggernaut and ordered Xain to kill that
meddlesome Hari. I, with the superior Sim-Seru I received from Prince
Cort! Fools! You shall all feel the power of my wrath! Now I shall show
you which is stronger, your Ra-Seru or my Sim-Seru!

{Dohati morphs into a hideous creature that looks like a mix between a
frog and a bird}

+============+
+Boss: Dohati+

{The Ra-Seru heroes defeat the ruler of Sebucus}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Dohati: How could my Sim-Seru, infused with the wisdom of the Mist, be
defeated by a Ra-Seru?

{Dohati reverts back to his normal form}

Dohati: However, my creation, Juggernaut, has already been set free.
Rim Elm. That wretched cave. The Biron Monastery. All those foolish
humans who think they have escaped the Mist! Juggernaut has unleashed
the hand of destruction on them all! And Juggernaut continues to grow
under the protection of mighty Prince Cort. Though I may die,
Juggernaut will live.

{Dohati shatters}

Meta: Vahn! Noa! Gala! Are you ready to destroy the Mist Generator?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Meta: It's time to rid the Sebucus Islands of the Mist that envelops
it! Are you ready?
======================================================================

2) Yes

Meta: Listen, everyone! We must work together! Let's go!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala use the power of their Ra-Seru to destroy the Mist
Generator. A Ra-Seru floats up from the debris and starts to
communicate with Meta, Terra and Ozma in the Ra-Seru's language.It soon
bursts into pieces.

Gala: Ozma! That thing that disappeared, wasn't that a Ra-Seru?

Ozma: (Silence)

Noa: Terra, something's wrong! You were talking to it in a language I
don't understand. I'm sorry, Noa. This is something I still can't tell
you about.

Meta: Vahn, I promise that someday I'll tell you who I was talking to.

Ozma: So please don't ask us to tell you now.

Noa: (Crying)

Gala: Noa, there's no use crying about it. All you can do is believe in
that promise.

Ozma: I'm sorry, Gala.

Gala: Well, at least the Mist is gone from Vidna and Octam.

Meta: That's right! By the time we reach the outside, both towns should
be back to normal.

{The Ra-Seru heroes leave Dohati's Castle and head back to Ratayu}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Vahn, Noa and Gala are seen standing in front of Lord Saryu}

Saryu: I see...your homes were damaged by the Juggernaut I created. I
am terribly sorry.

Noa: No! It's not your fault, Saryu! It's the Sim-Seru's fault!

Saryu: Noa...I am told you are searching for your parents in Conkram.

Noa: That's right! Hari told me they were there!

Saryu: There is but one way from the Sebucus Islands to Karisto
Kingdom, where Conkram is. That is by the flying train. There is a
flying train station in Octam. I do not know if it is still in
operation, but it's worth a try.

Gala: I see. Songi is where the Mist is. Vahn, we must go to Karisto
Kingdom!

Noa: Vahn, did you hear that? I want to go to Octam and ride a flying
train!

{The Ra-Seru heroes travel back to Octam, where many citizens have
moved back from Octam (Underground). Vahn, Noa and Gala head over to
the second floor of the main building in Octam where the elevator
operator is}

Elevator Operator: The flying trains? Oh, they're out of operation
until the Mist is gone from Karisto Kingdom! Oh! Vahn! I didn't know it
was you! I'm sorry. You want to go to Karisto Kingdom? Of course, I'll
make an exception for you. The crewmen are waiting up there. Oh,
and...before you go, I recommend buying plenty of the Doors of Wind!

{The elevator operator unlocks the elevator and sends the Ra-Seru
heroes to the roof of Octam's main building. They find three crewmen
waiting for them, one of them wearing a Seru required for pulling the
gondola}

Crewman 1: Now, then...we can leave any time you want! Well, how about
a one-way ride to Karisto?

1) No
2) Let's go!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) No

Crewman 1: I see. You're not ready. That's alright! I'll be waiting.
Come back whenever you're ready!
======================================================================

2) Let's go!

Crewman 1: Affirmative! Yessiree!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{The crewman wearing the Seru runs over to the other two crewmen and
prepares them for travel}

Crewman 1: Here we go! Attach Flying Seru! All personnel in standard
flight positions!

{One of the crewmen enters the gondola while one crewman and the Ra-
Seru heroes watch from outside. The crewman wearing the Flying Seru
jumps on top of the gondola and jumps into the air. The Flying Seru
grows in size and connects to the front of the gondoa}

Crewman 2: Alright, the Flying Seru is ready! Now stop stalling and get
on board!

{The crewman enters the gondola with the Ra-Seru heroes and the other
crewman jumps on top of the Flying Seru and enters its head, which
closes in on top of him, acting like a cockpit. The Flying Train pulls
itself across the ropes and brings the Ra-Seru heroes across the ocean}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! This flying train is great! We're breezing across the
ocean! Look! Look! Octam is already out of sight! We're already at
Karisto Kingdom! Soon we'll be in Conkram. Yea, Conkram!

Gala: I know. Hari did say that your parents were in Conkram, didn't
he, Noa!

{Gala turns around to Vahn}

Gala: Vahn...when I was in Biron Temple, I once heard...in Karisto
Kingdom, Sol and Conkram were at war when the Mist first covered the
earth. Zopu said he believed there was some connection between that war
and the Mist. I think he was right, Vahn! But that's not all. Behind
everything - deep inside the Mist - I sense a horrible evil!

{The Flying Seru begins to slow down and eventually comes to a complete
halt}

Noa: Vahn, something's wrong! The flying train stopped!

Gala: That is strange. We're still in the middle of the ocean, and
Karisto isn't even in sight.

Crewman 2: Something's not right. Why would we stop in the middle of
the ocean like this?

{The crewman pushes open the gondola door and jumps on top of it. The
other crewman who entered the cockpit of the Flying Seru rushes out to
meet him}

Crewman 2: Hey! What're you doing stuck in a place like this?

Crewman 3: (Blah blah blah)...and...(blah blah) we (blah blah)...

{Crewman2 jumps}

Crewman 2: What? What?

{Gala shouts at the crewmen above him}

Gala: What's wrong? What happened?

{The second crewman leans over the gondola door}

Crewman 2: We were just talking about it over here and...

{The third crewman leans over the gondola door}

Crewman 3: This is not good! They say the Mist in Karisto Kingdom is
much stronger than they expected. So if we go any further, the Mist
will start affecting our Flying Seru.

Crewman 2: I thought we could go farther than this. Oh don't worry.
It's a nice downhill slope from here on in! We'll just unhook the
gondola, and with a little momentum you'll coast right into Karisto!
Leave everything to us! Just close the gondola door and wait!

{The crewmen close the gondola door}

Crewman 2: We're counting on you!

Crewman 3: Affirmative!

{The third crewman jumps on top of the left rope that the Flying Seru
is grasping on to and runs across it before jumping back into the
cockpit. The second crewman rushes to the edge of the gondola and
grasps on to the edge of the Flying Seru}

Crewman 3: OK! Are you ready? Hold on tight!

{The Flying Seru starts to move forward and begins to pick up speed
until it's going at a blazing pace}

Crewman 2: Woah! Man, we're going fast! That guy is over-excited!
Heeeyyy! HEY! That's enough! Unhook us! Unhook us! Vahn, Noa, Gala!
We're counting on you! Good luck!

{The second crewman lets go of the back of the Flying Seru and is sent
falling into the water below. Almost immediately afterward the Flying
Seru unhitches and collapses into the sea. One of the crewmen pokes his
head above the water}

Crewman 3: Hey! Are you alright?

{Another crewman sticks his head above water}

Crewman 2: The Mist disappears, and next thing I know, we're swimming
in the ocean!

{The crewman wearing the Flying Seru comes up next}

Crewman 1: Are they gone?

Crewman 3: They're gone!

Crewman 1: I hope they're alright. Too bad the gondola doesn't have any
brakes!

Crewman 3: But, hey, those guys have Ra-Seru!

Crewman 2: You said it! Nothing can beat a Ra-Seru by your side!

Crewman 3: Alright, let's go back!

Crewman 1: Shoot! I wish the Flying Seru could swim!

{The gondola is sent toward Karisto Kingdom increasingly building
speed. Vahn, Noa and Gala reach Karisto Station and crash into the wall
ahead of them}

{A familiar voice wakes the Ra-Seru heroes}

Cara: Well, well! First you're wandering all over the place, now you're
napping here?

{Vahn slowly opens his eyes to see Cara standing over him with an
amused look on her face. Gala gets up from the side and collapses to a
knee}

Gala: Cara!

{Cara turns toward Gala and snickers}

Cara: You're so pathetic. See what happens when you depend on those
flying trains?

{Cara leans over to tend to Vahn, who is still lying on the ground. Noa
lifts herself halfway up from the ground and sits on the floor}

Cara: I can't keep getting you out of trouble, you know!

{Noa gets up from the ground}

Noa: Hey, I never asked you to help me!

{Cara looks at Noa after her remark and Gala gets up to both legs}

Gala: Cara! What are you doing here? What is that?!

{Gala spins around as an enormous shadow casts over Karisto Station.
Noa runs forward and Cara gets up to see what they are staring at}

Cara: I can't believe this. That's the Floating Castle! The one that
sprays Mist down from the sky!

{Vahn finally gets up from the floor}

Cara: He took everything from us.

Noa: The Floating Castle...it's gone.

Gala: Tell me, Cara. How are you able to travel freely through the
Mist?

{Vahn turns around and looks at Cara}

Gala: How do you escape possession by Seru when you don't have a Ra-
Seru like us?

Cara: Ra-Seru?

{Cara looks at Gala with a puzzled look. She reaches into her pocket}

Cara: What is a Ra-Seru? All I have...is this good luck charm!

{Cara pulls out an object that shines with a radiant light}

Noa: Cara! That's a Ra-Seru Egg! Wow!

Gala: Cara! Where did you get that Ra-Seru Egg?

Cara: Oh, so that's what you call it - a Ra-Seru Egg! I didn't know
that!

Noa: Cara, can I have that Ra-Seru Egg?

{Cara laughs and puts the Ra-Seru Egg back in her pocket}

Cara: I don't think so! No you can't have it! It's mine! Why should I
give it to you? Ha, ha! Well, I have to get going. I have things to do!

{Cara backflips onto the step below her and starts to run off}

Gala: Wait! Cara, where are you going?

{Cara runs a bit farther and then stops to answer Gala}

Cara: Sorry! That's a secret!

{Cara runs the rest of the way down the stairs and leaves Karisto
Station for her secret destination}

Gala: Oh, that woman! But...I wonder where she got that Ra-Seru Egg.

Noa: Cara might really be a nice person. After all, she helped us up.

{The Ra-Seru heroes walk down the steps and check out the Official
Guide to Sightseeing in Karisto Kingdom on the bulletin board. They
decide to journey to the city of Sol, the closest to Karisto Station
out of all the destinations}

{Vahn, Noa and Gala reach Sol Tower, the largest city in all of Legaia.
A humongous walkway with railings on each side leads to the entrance of
the tower. Vahn and Gala casually walk to the entrance while Noa takes
off and runs, tripping and flipping over on her butt. She looks up at
the tower in amazement}

Noa: Wow! (Silence)

Gala: So this is Sol! I never imagined that such a huge city could be
built by human hands! This must have been built with the power of the
Seru of long ago. The flying trains...the city itself...truly a pre-
Mist civilization!

Noa: Let's see what it's like inside!

{Noa takes off without another word}

Gala: Noa, wait! Don't go in alone!

{Noa turns around toward Vahn and Gala from across the walkway and
jumps with impatience}

Noa: Well come on, Vahn and Gala! Let's go!

{Noa turns back around and runs into Sol Tower alone}

Gala: Ha, ha, ha! There's no arguing with Noa! Come, Vahn! We're all
going inside!

{Vahn and Gala nod and run to the entrance of Sol Tower. Noa stops at
the inside entrance of Sol Tower and looks around}

Noa: Wow, it's huge! Vahn! Gala! Look! It's huge!

Gala: I heard Sol was a big place, but I never imagined it was this
big.

{Noa heads over to the railing in front of her and looks below}

Noa: But it's engulfed in the Mist...

Meta: Wait! I sense human thoughts. There are survivors in there!

Ozma: The Mist doesn't seem to have reached the upper parts of the
city.

Terra: But be careful! I sense indescribable depravity.

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Let's be careful!

Gala: Warrior-monks of Biron were sent to Sol. I hope they are still
alive.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head up the stairs to reach the upper levels of Sol
where the Mist hasn't reached}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Wait a minute! I hear something! I hear someone
fighting!

Gala: Yes, I hear it, too! The sound of a monster roaring, and the
sound of a sword!

{The sound of the monster's roars and the clanks of the sword are heard
even clearer, prompting Vahn, Noa and Gala into action}

Gala: It must be someone being attacked by a monster!

Noa: Vahn! Let's go help!

{They nod and rush up the stairs to help the person being attacked}

Noa: Oh, the sound stopped.

Gala: Whoever it was must have been killed by the monster.

Narration: (Silence)

{An old man fully clad in armor walks out of the entrance}

Old Man: (Surprise)

{The old man jumps back and puts on his helmet, getting ready in his
battle stance. Vahn, Noa and Gala prepare to defend themselves}

Old Man: Villains! So thou wert trying to ambush me?! Grotesque beasts
from Hell! Pack of Seru demons! Prepare to meet thy doom. Thou shalt
die by my Astral Sword!

{The old man starts to creep forward}

Gala: Hold it!

{The old man continues to creep forward}

Gala: Old man! Calm down! We're not Seru monsters!

Noa: Yeah! We're human beings!

{The old man eyes the Ra-Seru heroes}

Old Man: (Silence) (Silence) (Silence)

{The old man puts his guard down}

Old Man: Forgive me. I apologize. Thou art indeed human, as I detect no
madness in thine eyes.

{The old man takes off his helmet}

Old Man: I am Gaza, an old man who walks the path of carnage and
bloodshed.

Gaza: Forgive me and my incivility, as I live in such a defiled land.
But this demon's lair is no place for woman nor child!

{Gaza takes a look at Noa}

Gaza: Hmm?

{He takes a step toward Noa and puts his hand on her face, looking into
her eyes}

Gaza: Mar...

{Gaza closes his eyes and shakes his head}

Gaza: No, of course not. Mine eyes doth deceive me. Mar is no longer of
this world.

{Gaza turns around and walks passed the Ra-Seru heroes, heading into
the floors below}

Gaza: In the upper floors are ones who would greet thee. Make haste! I
take leave of you now.

{Gaza disappears into the lower levels. The R-Seru heroes continue
looking in his direction}

Gala: That old man, Gaza, now there is a true swordsman! He does not
drop his guard for an instant! But his eyes...his eyes showed no
emotion at all. They were lifeless, cold eyes. Very disturbing...

Noa: That old man talks so funny...I couldn't understand him. But when
he looked at me and called me Mar, he seemed so nice!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala make it to the upper floors where all the survivors
are}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

**************
Noa's Dream #4
**************

{Vahn and the others rest at Sol Tower's Inn on the upper levels. The
scene changes to Noa's dream where she wakes up to the sound of a voice
in the darkness}

Noa: Father? Is that you, Father?

{A white orb shines as Noa's father speaks to her}

Father: Noa...There is something I must tell you.

Noa:  What?

{An orb of light shines as Noa's mother starts to speak}

Mother: In the past, we made a horrible mistake.

Noa: Mother?

Mother: Something we could not undo. That mistake is what has
devastated the world...It is also what has kept us separated for so
long.

Father: Now we are paying for that mistake by being trapped in this
eternal darkness of deep Mist.

Mother: Noa! You must undo the mistake that led to this devastation! We
can give you the power to change fate!

Father: Noa, come to us, so that we can atone.

{Both orbs start to flash in and out of sight}

Noa: Where are you? Where should I go?

Father: In Conk...You can...change...fate...!

{Noa's father's orb disappears followed soon after by the orb
representing Noa's mother}

Noa: Mother! I'll go! I'll find you! I promise!
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Vahn, Noa and Gala ascend the stairwell they hear Cara's voice from
inside the Jazz Club}

Cara: Oh, I can't take it anymore! Start acting like a man!

Noa: It's Cara! Vahn, that's Cara's voice!

Gala: It's coming from there. It sounds like an argument.

Noa: Let's go see! Vahn, let's go inside!

{Noa rushes into the Jazz Club}

Gala:  That Noa is always poking her nose into everything! Come on,
Vahn. Let's go.

{Vahn follows Gala into the Jazz Club. They walk forward to see Noa and
random people in the Jazz Club staring at Cara, who is yelling at a man
getting drunk at the bar}

Gala: That man next to Cara! It's...

Cara: Grantes! I'm not saying this because I hate you! I just want you
to get back on your feet! I want the Grantes of ten years ago, before
the Mist!

{Grantes lowers his head and closes his eyes}

Grantes: (Silence)

{Cara closes her eyes and shakes her head}

Cara: Everything I did, I did them hoping that someday, you would get
back on your feet. I was a no-good thief! I used the confusion to steal
from people! I did things that would make my parents cry, if they knew.

{Cara opens her eyes and looks straight at Grantes}

Cara: Me! A woman! I did all those things. Don't you feel anything?

{Grantes opens his eyes and stares ahead vacantly}

Grantes: I'm grateful. I'm sorry...

Cara: Grantes! You're a sorry excuse for a man! Living off a
woman...you're no better than a pimp!

{Noa turns around to Vahn with a puzzled look on her face}

Noa: Vahn, what's a pimp? If Grantes is a human, how can he be a pimp?

1) I don't really understand, either.
2) He's a man who lives off a woman.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I don't really understand, either.

Noa: Oh. Well then, Gala, can you tell me what a pimp is?

{Gala looks at Vahn then puts his hand over his face}

Gala: Uh, well, I am a monk, and know not of such things very well.
That seems to be what one calls a bad man who doesn't work and has a
woman support him.

Noa: A pimp is a bad man?
======================================================================

2) He's a man who lives off a woman.

Noa: Wow, Vahn, you know everything! Now I get it! A pimp is a bad
person!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Noa turns around and starts stamping her feet in a tantrum}

Noa: Uh-huh! I get it! Grantes is bad! I hate people who are bad!

Gala: Wait, Noa! Don't be so hasty!

Noa: I'm going to get Grantes' cause he's bad!

{With a flying jump kick Noa kicks Grantes in the head and sends him
flying into the alcohol bottles across the bar. Grantes lies in a heap
on the floor}

Noa: Grantes is bad! Pimps are bad! I hate pimps!

{Noa jumps on top of a bar stool}

Noa: That's why I won't let Grantes get away with that.

{Cara rushes forward and grabs Noa}

Cara: No, don't. Stop, please.

{Noa turns around and looks at Cara}

Cara: He's not bad. I'm the one who's bad. It's all my fault. So,
please, don't hurt him. If you want to hit someone, hit me.

{Noa jumps off of the barstool}

Noa: Why should I hit you, Cara? Grantes is the one who's bad!

{Gala steps forward and looks at Noa sternly}

Gala: Noa, don't interfere in their business. Come on, let's go
outside!

{A pianist who was listening in at the argument shakes his head and
goes back to performing}

Noa: But I didn't do anything wrong! Grantes is the one who's bad!

{Cara tends to Grantes at the other end of the bar and the scene
transitions to Vahn, Noa and Gala leaving the Jazz Club}

Gala: Noa! This is adult business. You can't go sticking your nose into
it.

Noa: Why? Adults are humans, too! And I'm a human! I'm a human just
like them! Oh, I don't understand! Gala, tell me why!

{Gala facepalms}

Gala: Oh, brother.

{Cara walks out of the Jazz Club and heads into the lower levels}

Noa: You're so strange.

Gala: Come on, Noa! You wanted to go to Conkram, right?! You want to
see your parents in Conkram, right?

Noa: Y-Yeah, I do. OK, Gala. I'll take care of Grantes later!

{Gala shrugs and the Ra-Seru heroes start ascending up the tower steps}

Gobu is about to finish in the ring at the back of the room}

colorful finish in only 1 minute, 47 seconds. The contestant in the
blue corner has won a record victory.

2) Tell me how to play the games.
3) On second thought, forget it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) Tell me how to play the games.

Hostess: This is an elimination tournament. Each contestant must fight
one-on-one against our powerful monsters alone! The more bouts you win,
the more tokens you get. There are three levels in the Tournament. The
first is Beginner. You have to fight eight monsters in sequence as you
would in a normal battle. At the Expert level, a contestant must fight
eight monsters wearing only a Seru. As for the Master level, I will say
only that you must fight more than eight monsters. After each bout HP
automatically increases or decreases depending on how well, or poorly,
you fight. It should also be noted that no items whatsoever may be used
during a bout. There are three ways to leave the Tournament: by
winning, losing, or running away during a bout. However, running away
is considered forfeiting, and no prize money is awarded.
======================================================================

3) On second thought, forget it.

Hostess: We hope you come again soon!

Gala: Sorry, Vahn, but vain displays of the martial arts of Biron are
forbidden.

*Vahn tries to sign up Gala again

Gala: I must decline, Vahn, why don't you enter the Tournament?
======================================================================

a. Vahn

Do you want to take lessons from me?

Disco King Dance Tutorial
*************************

{Noa appears alone on stage}

Disco King: Do you want to learn how to dance?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Disco King: Alright, give it a try. Let's see you dance!

{If Noa says "No" after this round is over the next two steps of the
tutorial are skipped and Noa will automatically start the final
tutorial level}
======================================================================

1) Yes

Disco King: That's the spirit. Let me teach you! I'll teach you the
basics of dancing. Look down at your feet. There is a dance step guide
and marks to show you the dance moves. Press the buttons in the same
timing as the flashing guide. Timing is everything! Alright, give it a
try. Let's see you dance!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Noa begins dancing}

*If Noa's timing is off

Disco King: No, that's not it! What are you doing?

{After a while the first round of the tutorial stops}

Disco King: If you dance well, the level rises automatically and you
can try more advanced steps. Press the triangle button simultaneously
with the last command. But you can only use it three times. Press the
circle or square button and triangle simultaneously for a groovy move.
But you only get to do that 3 times. Okay, Noa! Let's see you use that
triangle button.

{Noa begins dancing}

*If Noa uses the triangle button with good timing

Disco King:
Hey, pretty good!

{After a while the second round of the tutorial stops}

Disco King: You can also go to a higher level by pressing the triangle
button. Press it when you're ready. Use the square and X buttons to
dance, and press the triangle button at the right time for a groovy
move. That's the basics, Noa! Alright, practice is over. Now show me
your moves Noa.

{Noa starts dancing for a grade this time. After a while the countdown
signals the end of the dancing round}

1) If Noa scores between 1-99 points
2) If Noa scores between 100-199 points
3) If Noa scores between 200-299 points
4) If Noa scores 300 points or higher
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) If Noa scores between 1-99 points

Disco King: Well, if I had to score that dancing, I'd give it...
(Score)! {Disco King turns his back on Noa} You're terrible! No talent
at all! That was a waste of time! Can't you even manage to press the
buttons while watching the gauge?
======================================================================

2) If Noa scores between 100-199 points

Disco King: Well, if I had to score that dancing, I'd give it... {Disco
King spins and bends backwards while looking up at Noa} (Score)! I
admire your effort, but effort isn't enough. Dance is all about rhythm
and style! To show style, press the triangle button. You have to work
at it!

{Noa crouches and nods at him}
======================================================================

3) If Noa scores between 200-299 points

Disco King: Well, if I had to score that dancing, I'd give it... {Disco
King does a disco move} (Score)! That was pretty good! Dance is all
about rhythm and style! The triangle button is the secret to dancing!
Use it as one of your moves! Noa, I see real talent in you! Just try a
little harder!
======================================================================

4) If Noa scores 300 points or higher

Disco King: Well, if I had to score that dancing, I'd give it... {The
camera changes angles 3 times and Disco King does a dance move}
(Score)! Noa, there's nothing more I can teach you.

{Noa nods}

Disco King: As a final prize, I'll give you the Speed Chain!

Narration:
Noa now has the Speed Chain!

Man: Very well. This young lady here, Ms. Noa. I'll go ahead and sign

down angrily}

Sol-Far: (Grumble, grumble)

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head backstage and see a depressed-looking
comedian. Vahn and Noa walk up to him while Gala remains with his back
turned, waiting impatiently}

Mon: My partner, Pig, said he doesn't want to perform anymore, and that
this is all pointless! Since then, I haven't been able to find a new
partner. Hey!

{Mon sees Gala and walks toward him, pushing passed Vahn. Gala turns
around}

Mon: Hey, you there! You, the big one! Eh? Your name is Gala? Gala, you
look just like Pig! Would you go up on stage with me?

2) No

Mon: Oh. Well, I guess you're not interested in doing comedy. Of course
you're not! Oh well. Don't mind me. I was being unreasonable. (Silence)
It's all over for me!

*talk to Mon again

Mon: Hey, Gala! Why don't you team up with me? We could be a comedy
team!
======================================================================

1) OK


Mon: What? You'll go on stage with me? Oh, thank you! All right, the
stage is this way. Let's go! What are you worried about? Just deadpan
it up there and I'll do the rest. I heard that you're a great straight
man! So don't worry, let's go!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{The screen goes black and rounds of laughter are heard. Gala and Mon
walk backstage after the show is over}

Comedian: Wow, you're great Gala! The audience has never applauded this
much!

Mon: I forgot how wonderful it is to see people smiling and laughing!

Gala: N-No! It's not what you think! Vahn! Noa! Don't get the wrong
idea! I-I was just having a serious conversation! Even if a Biron
warrior-mok did perform in a...comedy show...No, I mean...The rules of
Biron forbid laughter! So, even if I, a Master of Biron, I mean, I
would...I could never...

Mon: Hey! Gala, what's wrong? Your act was just great, so what's the
matter now? That line wasn't very funny.

Noa: Wow! You're great, Gala! You're not just strong, you're funny,
too! I wanna go see all the people laughing. I'll be back in a minute.

{Noa runs off}

Gala: Wait, Noa! Vahn, stop! Stop looking at me like that! I...It's
just that...You know! Oh well. That Noa went on by herself. I guess we
should follow her!

{Gala runs after Noa and Vahn blinks a few times before following him.
They all meet up at Sol Broadway}

Sol-Mar: You know, a person who's really talked-about nowadays is
Master Gala.

Sol-Far: Just between you and me, that Gala, he may be big and
strong...But he's a natural-born comedian! In other words, naturally
dumb!

Sol-Mar: Hey, hey! You can't say that!

Sol-Far: Don't worry! I can say that, 'cause me and him are good
friends. Just the other day, Gala was saying to me...

{The screen fades to black and rounds of laughter are heard}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala reach the top of Sol Tower and attempt to enter the
Biron Monastery there. An old man walks out of the temple}

Old Deez: Stop! This is the Holy Temple of Biron. None but the
followers of Biron may enter. Let alone those wearing the despised Seru
on their person! Go away! Now!

{Old Deez turns around and prepares to head back inside}

Gala: Old Master, wait! Please, wait a moment! I am Gala. I embraced
Biron and studied under Master Zopu. Please listen to what we have to
say. Please!

{Old Deez turns around and looks down at Gala}

Old Deez: Zopu? So, you speak the name of Zopu! He certainly is of
Biron...But...

Gala: Please forgive my impertinence!

{Gala jumps into the air and demonstrates some of the Biron Martial
Arts before landing on the stairs in front of Old Deez}

Noa: Wow! Gala, you're so cool!

Gala: Biron Martial Arts, seventh degree. What do you think?

Old Deez: Hmm. There indeed is deft mastery in your techniques. Those
could only be the secret arts of Biron, taught by Zopu himself! Having
seen your skills, it would not do to turn you away. Come with me.

{Old Deez heads into the monastery and the Ra-Seru heroes follow him.
The scene changes to Old Deez and the Ra-Seru heroes just finishing a
conversation about the reason for their arrival}

Old Deez: I see. Your tales, Gala, Vahn, and Noa...the Ra-Seru and
Genesis Trees...to witness such miracles! I am indeed impressed! I
apologize for my rudeness earlier. Yes, there is a Genesis Tree here.
However...

{Old Deez walks over to the left side of the Biron Shrine and picks up
a tiny seedling in a pot}

Old Deez: See for yourselves. This is the temple's Genesis Tree!

Noa: Hey, Vahn! That's only a...

Gala: That's...a seedling! This tiny, frail-looking Genesis Tree is
going to help us?

Old Deez: Correct! This is a Genesis Tree seedling. That is what we
call it. One hundred years ago, the wilted Genesis Tree of the
underground Warrior's Square...was transplanted here. Amazingly, it
transformed itself into this seedling. The prophecy of the Holy Emperor
Etora IV says that when the time is right...the Genesis Tree in
Warrior's Square under Sol, will come back to life. I now entrust you
with this Genesis Tree seedling!

(Vahn now has the Genesis Seedling!)

{Gala bow to Old Deez}

Gala: I am honored, Master Deez.

Noa: Vahn! Gala! We did it! Now we can drive the Mist from Sol!

Old Deez: Good luck to you. And may Tieg smile on Sol.

{Four Biron Monks enter the monastery and begin training. The Ra-Seru
heroes leave the monastery and walk out of the front gate. As they head
to the stairs to descend the tower they are stopped by Gaza}

Gaza: I, Gaza, will not let thine evil plot succeed! This I have vowed
on my honor, and on the mighty Astral Sword! No one who would prevent
me from keeping that vow shall be spared! Now put down that Genesis
Tree seedling! Do not resist me! Lest thou die by my blade!

{Gaza puts on his helmet and prepares to attack. Five Biron monks
attempt to rush Gaza}

Gaza: Insolent knaves!

{Gaza knocks out all five warrior monks with a single swipe of his
sword}

Gaza: Fools!

{Gaza turns around and makes his way cautiously toward the Ra-Seru
heroes}

Gaza: Fear not, that was just the back of my sword! I do not take life
without reason. I am Gaza! I bear thee no ill will. Yet if thou doth
seek to drive away the Mist and with it the Seru...then I would be
forced to stop thine evil scheme by taking thine lives.Now, how dost
thou reply?

Noa: You're weird! I don't understand a word you're saying, but I can
tell you're a weirdo!

Gala: There's no reason for us to fight, Gaza! The awakening of the
Genesis Tree and your vow...they are the same thing! That means you,
old man, and we share a common goal! There is no reason for us to
fight. We are not sworn enemies!

Gaza: Misjudge me not! My vow is to live the way of the sword! That and
no more! The grounds where my sword holds the power of life and death
is the demon's lair below! I exist to fight there! My sword was forged
to slay the demons! I live for carnage!

{Noa tilts her head trying to understand Gaza's words}

Noa: Power of life and death? Demon's lair? Carnage? Ooh! I don't
understand what that old man is saying at all!

Gala: Noa, the gentleman seems to think if we revive the Genesis Tree
and drive away Mist...then he won't be able to practice his
swordsmanship on Seru in Mist anymore.

Noa: ? That's too weird! That's just too weird! There's something wrong
with this old guy!

Gala: The Mist can twist people's minds with its very existence.

Gaza: Enough idle talk! Let thine steel do thine talking!

+==========+
+Boss: Gaza+
+==========+

{Gaza attacks the Ra-Seru heroes with his powerful sword attacks.
However, Vahn, Noa and Gala defeat Gaza and leave him sprawled across
the floor}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

{Noa crouches next to Gaza}

Noa: Oh, the old man...

Gala: Such a senseless fight! Why must human fight human?! Vahn, the
old gentleman still lives. We must treat his wounds, quickly!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala attempt to tend to Gaza's wounds but a voice stops
them}

Songi: Have no fear, Songi is here!

{A portal opens at the top of the tower. Songi appears through it
riding on top of some sort of hover board}

Songi: My, my. Gala, do you realize what you've done? You've killed a
human being! You're all a disgrace! Your cruelty puts the Mist's
henchmen to shame! Bloodthirsty beasts! How could you murder this poor
old man just because he was a little eccentric? Oh, the horror! Just
watching it sent a chill through me!

Gala: Songi...Y-You bastard!

Songi: Hey, wait! Wait, you simple-minded muscle-bound oaf! I will save
the old man! After all, I've taken to him...and unlike you, I am a
merciful person. Ha, ha, ha! I'll heal him, and help him recover! So
stay alive long enough to see him get better! So long!

{Songi uses his hover board's energy to pick up Gaza and drags him
through the air with him through the portal, disappearing in a rippling
vortex}

Gala: That Songi...what is he up to?

Noa: Vahn, is the old man going to be OK? I'm worried about him.

{The Ra-Seru heroes take the Genesis Tree seedling with them to the
bottom floors of the tower. As they try to reach the basement they
discover that their path is blocked by the Sage's Gate, a massive guard
dog statue. As they find out from the machine room next to the Sage's
Gate, they can only remove the Sage's Gate by feeding all 8 Sage's
Treasure Chests scattered throughout the bottom floors of the tower
Soru Bread. Once all the Soru Bread is obtained, the Ra-Seru heroes
find the Sage Treasure Chests one by one until all of them are
satisfied. They return to the machine room and step on the panel, where
eight pipes are rumbling loudly}

Narration: There is writing carved into the door. He who seeks the
Warrior's Square must sate the Sage's hunger. Then the Sage's Gate will
open. All the Sages have been satisfied.

{The Ra-Seru heroes step off of the platform as steam starts to jut out
from the pipes}

Noa: W-What should we do? Something weird is going to happen, I know
it!

Gala: Calm down, Noa! Listen! I hear something!

{The screen changes to a view of the Sage's Gate. A wall opens up and
the Sage's Guard Dog turns around and slides into the walls, which
close up immediately afterward. Back in the machine room, a transparent
image starts to appear slowly on the platform in front of the Ra-Seru
heroes as their eyes are closed in concentration}

Image: Uhhh...Yeaaa...! Wooooo...hoooo!

{Noa turns around to see the image floating in front of her}

Image: ...am most...impressed!

{Gala turns around and notices the image start to appear more clearly.
It bursts into focus and startles Vahn, who jumps backward}

Image: You who solved my riddle! Don't be scared! I am Usha. Dr. Usha!
I am pleased to make your acquaintance!

Noa: Hi, Dr. Usha!

Dr. Usha: Don't be alarmed. This is a mechanical device. It is not the
real me! I know not whether I will still be alive by the time you hear
this message. I recorded this message just after sealing the Sage's
Gate. This I did to protect the Warrior's Square from the approaching
Mist and its cohorts. If I am lucky, I will survive the Mist long
enough to meet you. Proceed with the Genesis Tree seedling. Heroes!
Drive the Mist from Sol!

{The image of Dr. Usha begins to fade and blinks out}

Noa: Dr. Usha...he disappeared!

Gala: Vahn! How did Dr. Usha know we were here? We should take the
Genesis Tree seedling to Warrior's Square, like Dr. Usha said.

{The Ra-Seru heroes head into the basement of Sol Tower where rows of
bookcases filled with books are located. They travel through some
armories and eventually reach a set of stairs leading farther down into
the tower. They descend the staircase and enter the Warrior's Square}

Noa: The air is so cold! I'm chilled to the bone! This place is so
weird!

Gala: The air is stale from being sealed in here for so long.

Noa: Hey, what's that? There, in the middle - those strange rocks.

Gala: That must be the Warrior's Square that Dr. Usha was talking
about. The Square must be behind those stones.

Noa: Ooh, I want to see the Square! I want to go through the stones!

{The Ra-Seru heroes move the lever immediately in front of them,
causing the first row of rectangular stones to drop into the floor.
They navigate the stairs to reach the other lever at the other side of
the room, passing electric trap barriers along the way. By using levers
to deactivate the appropriate barriers they eventually reach the other
lever, dropping the second set of stones and revealing a large circle
of soil}

Noa: Vahn! The Genesis Tree! We have to plant the seedling quickly!

Gala: Vahn! Hurry! I'm worried about Songi and Gaza.

{They are about to place the Genesis Tree seedling into the soil when
they are interrupted}

Songi: Oh, thank you for always thinking of me, members of the Moron
Brigade!

{A portal opens in front of the Warrior's Square}

Songi: I wouldn't want to ruin my reputation by not living up to you
morons' expectations!

{Songi jumps out of the portal and lands in the center of the Warrior's
Square. Gala runs toward him}

Gala: Songi! Leave here peacefully! Now!

Noa: Songi! What did you do with the old man, Gaza?

Songi: Well, well. How touching! The barbarian girl is fond of the old
geezer!

{Noa starts throwing a tantrum}

Noa: Ooh! I'm steaming!

{Songi spits on the ground in front of him}

Songi: If you want to see him that much, then go ahead! Gaza! Come out,
Gaza! We have visitors!

{A portal opens up in front of the Warrior's Square and Gaza jumps out
of it}

Songi: Ha, ha, ha! I'm just as crazy about this geezer as you fools
are! In fact, I like him so much that I gave him a custom-fitted Sim-
Seru!

{A Sim-Seru in the shape of Gaza's shoulder armor manifests at his
right side}

Songi: He's a Super Geezer now...and quite a formidable opponent, too!

{Songi turns around toward Gaza}

Songi: Now, then...I'll leave you to the geezer. If you'll forgive me,
I must be going. I'm so busy now! I would wish you good luck, but that
won't do you any good! Ha, ha, ha!

{The portal opens up again in front of Songi and he jumps through it.
Noa runs over to Gaza}

Noa: Old Man!

Gaza: (Silence)

{Gala runs forward next to Noa}

Gala: Noa! Stay away from him! He's possessed by a Seru!

{The Sim-Seru attaches itself to Gaza and slightly morphs his
appearance}

Noa: Vahn! The old man...Gaza, he's...he's being destroyed!

Gala: He's in a frenzy. There's nothing to do now but fight him!

{Vahn nods in agreement. Gaza turns to the Ra-Seru heroes}

Gaza: T-Thou wouldst hinder my path of carnage. You must die! Prepare
to die by the steel of the Astral Sword! Prepare to meet thy doom!

+==========+
+Boss: Gaza+
+==========+

{A large purple sword manifests itself between Gaza's hands. The Ra-
Seru heroes engage him in battle and defeat him}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Noa: The old man...

Gala: Look, Noa! The horrible Seru is separating from Gaza's body!

{The Sim-Seru rises farther into the air and disintegrates over Gaza}

Gaza: I d-dropped my guard...I am...utterly defeated...by the
enemy...failed to keep the vow...I made...my dream...never to come
true! Mar! Theodore! Belde!

Noa: Terra! Terra! He's dying! Don't let him die! Help him! Terra,
you're a Ra-Seru! You have amazing powers! Please, help the old man!

Terra: Noa, Gaza's body is dying. There is nothing we can do.
However...yes, that's it. It may be possible to keep his spirit alive.

Ozma: Special powers are needed to raise the Genesis Tree seedling into
a full-grown Genesis Tree.

Meta: Gaza's strong spirit, which trapped Gaza in its prison...it's
pure and earnest enough to provide the Genesis Tree seedling with the
energy it needs!

Terra: Gaza's soul will live eternally in the Genesis Tree in Warrior's
Square!

Noa: You mean that the old man is going to turn into a Genesis Tree
here?

Gaza: I...am to become a G-Genesis Tree? Now that I have failed...to
uphold my vow...then I can die contentedly. Please help me join with
the Genesis Tree!

Gala: Noa! Gaza's pulse is getting weaker!

Noa: Old man! If you really want to join with the Genesis Tree...

Meta: Vahn! Place the Genesis Tree seedling next to Gaza! Let his
energy flow into it!

{Vahn places the Genesis Tree seedling in front of Gaza's body and turn
the seedling into a fully grown Genesis Tree}

Narration: With the power of the Genesis Tree, Meta's level increased
to Lv6. Terra's level increased to Lv5. Ozma's level increased to Lv4.

{Gaza's Astral Sword sparkles with energy and floats from the top of
the Genesis Tree in front of the Ra-Seru heroes}

Gala: Vahn, Noa! Look! That's Gaza's keepsake!

Noa: Vahn! T-That's the old man! He wants us to use it now that he's
gone!

{The Astral Sword drops down to the ground in front of Vahn. Vahn takes
the Astral Sword}

(Vahn now has the Astral Sword!)

Gala: For an instant, Gaza saw his grandchild Mar's face in you, Noa.

Noa: Old ma...I mean, Grandpa! Watch over all of us, OK?

{The Ra-Seru heroes walk over to the exit of the Warrior's Square and
as they leave Noa takes one last look at the Genesis Tree}

Noa: Old man...

{The Ra-Seru heroes head over to the inn at the lower floor and speak
with Emperor Etora of Sol after finding out from a Solian that he
wishes to speak with them}

Emperor Etora: I am Etora Ignao Durk de La Micentus the Eighth, Emperor
of Sol. You there. Are you the one called Vahn?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Emperor Etora: Has the Mist made your ears deaf? I asked you if you are
the one called Vahn.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Emperor Etora: I see. I have heard much of your exploits. I am pleased.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Emperor Etora turns around and looks out the window}

Emperor Etora: Many citizens fell victim to the Mist in the long years
before you arrived. But you have saved us. I also foresaw the danger
posed by the Floating Caslte...I ordered Dr. Usha to seal the Sage's
Gate. I was correct in doing so. I have from Usha a message intended
for the heroes who revive the Genesis Tree. X, X, Triangle, Circle,
Square!  I know not what it means, but apparently it is a password.
That is the message! I now entreat you to destroy the abominable
Floating Castle! Good work! Give my regards to Usha when you see him!


*************************
Optional Event: Angry Man
*************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala come across a bearded man next to a fish tank at
Sol's Inn on the upper levels who confronts them}

Bearded man: Hey! Who asked you to get rid of the Mist? Why don't you
mind your own business!

{A woman rushes up to him}

Middle-aged woman: Stop that! What's the matter with you, talking like
that?

Bald man: I-I'm sorry, dear. I just got carried away.

Middle-aged woman: Vahn, Im so sorry. My husband is just so ill-mannered.

******************
End Optional Event
******************

{With the password they exit Sol Tower in a journey to Usha's Research
Center in the north. As they walk passed the walkway heading out of Sol
Tower the scene changes to the inside of the Floating Castle. The
Delilas Family is seen kneeling in front of a throne with a mysterious
woman in sitting in it}

Voice: Well, well. It looks like the kids revived the Genesis Tree of
Sol. Not bad.

Gi Delilas: When you want that blue-headed brat dead, just say the
word, Zora, and he's dead.

Zora: Ha, ha! You're quite confident. But leave them be. While they're
wandering around, Koru will...

Lu Delilas: Don't worry about Koru. Leave him to the Delilas family!

Zora: Ha, ha! Then go! I'm counting on you!

Che Delilas: Yes, ma'am!

{The Delilas family jumps off into the distance to carry out their
dastardly plan. The camera changes and Songi is seen in standing with
his back turned to Zora, arms folded and a smirk on his face}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{On the way toward Dr. Usha's Research Center, the Ra-Seru heroes reach
the frozen city of Buma}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! This is Buma! The Genesis Tree must be here! I'll go
check! I'm going ahead to the Genesis Tree!

{Noa runs toward the edge of the town. The scene changes and Cara is
seen kneeling on the frozen grass in between the Genesis Trees}

Cara: I know...your heart is frozen just like this ice. I can tell,
because my heart is buried here in the cold ice and snow, too.

{Cara shakes her head and gets up from the floor. She walks east over
the railings on the edge of the small hill where the Genesis Trees
stand. Noa runs to the front of the Genesis Trees}

Noa: Whoa!

{Vahn and Gala arrive behind Noa. They stand in front of the middle
Genesis Tree}

Noa: Vahn...Gala...the Genesis Tree! Come look at the Genesis Tree! Oh,
this is terrible! It's frozen stiff! It's frozen!

Gala: Oh, no!

{Gala rushes to the Genesis Tree on the right side to check on it}

Gala: Oh, no! Vahn, the Genesis Tree is frozen! It's covered in ice and
snow!

{Vahn runs over to the left Genesis Tree}

Noa: Terra! Terra! Everything will be alright, right? Won't the Genesis
Tree wake up?

Terra: (Silence) I never imagined that something like this would happen
to the Genesis Tree! We still have to try!! We're going to focus all
our energy! Come over here!

Ozma: Gala, let's give it a try!

{Gala nods and joins Noa at the middle Genesis Tree}

Meta: Ready, Vahn? Let's go join them.

{Vahn joins Noa and Gala at the Genesis Tree}

Terra: Focus your thoughts!

{They each raise their hands in the air and Meta, Terra and Ozma start
to glow}

Ozma: Visualize the healthy, revived Genesis Tree!

Meta: Concentrate! Harder, harder!

{The power from the Ra-Seru enters the Genesis Tree. It seems as if
their powers will work, but the Genesis Tree remains as it was}

Terra: It's no good. If we try any harder, we may damage the Genesis
Tree.

Noa: No! No we can't give up! We can't! I'll do it! I'll wake up the
Genesis Tree!

{Vahn and Gala walk over to Noa as she has a tantrum}

Gala: Noa! Stop acting like a child!

{Noa hangs her head but suddenly has an idea}

Noa: Ohhh! Wait! That's it! A Ra-Seru egg! This is a Genesis Tree, so
it should have a Ra-Seru egg!

{Gala nods in agreement}

Gala: Noa is right! Ozma, can we at least get a Ra-Seru Egg?

Ozma: Well, actually...it looks like there are no Ra-Seru Eggs here.

Meta: It looks like all the Ra-Seru Eggs have been taken from every
Genesis Tree.

Noa: Cara! She took them! She took the Ra-Seru eggs! I'm sure of it,
because she had an egg!

Gala: I see. It's possible. I don't know for sure, but it's possible.

{Noa touches the Genesis Tree}

Noa: Can't we melt the ice? If we could, we could revive the Genesis
Tree.

Gala: There's only one thing I can say for certain...and that is,
dawdling around here isn't going to get us anywhere! Noa! Vahn! Let's
look for other leads!!

{Gala starts walking toward the town exit}

Noa: Gala, you sure do talk big.

{Noa looks at the Genesis Tree in front of her}

Noa: Just you wait. I promise you that we'll figure out something.

{Vahn and the others journey toward Usha's Research Center and enter
the floor underneath the tower. A pipe just down from the tower for
visitors to speak into}

Narration: If you have business here, speak into the voice tube.

Noa: Doctor! Dr. Usha! Is Dr. Usha there?

Dr. Usha: Who is it?

{Noa yells into the pipe}

Noa: It's me, Noa! I came to see you, Doctor!

Dr. Usha: Noa? I don't know any Noa!

Gala: We're on a journey to wipe the Mist from the face of the earth!
We came seeking knowledge, Dr. Usha. Please let us in!

Dr. Usha: Well...you may just be clever Seru. You say you want to
destroy the Mist...if you're telling the truth, you must know the
password from someone in Sol! Well? Let me hear the password!

Narration: Please enter the password.

1) Password is Correct
2) Password is Incorrect
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) Password is Incorrect

Dr. Usha: Wrong! You're way off! So, you were imposters after all! If
you were real, you would have heard the password from King Etora VIII
in Sol!

Noa: Dr. Usha! Hey! Doctor! Doctor! Vahn, there's no answer!

{Vahn and the others try again}

Noa: Doctor! Dr. Usha! It's me, Noa!

Dr. Usha: Quiet! You're interfering with my research!

Noa: I need to see you! I need to see you, doctor!

Dr. Usha: Then tell me the password!
======================================================================

1) Password is Correct

Answer: X X Triangle O Square

Dr. Usha: That's it! So you are the heroes! You're finally here! Just
wait a moment. I'll send down the elevator, so wait a moment.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{An elevator lowers down from the tower in front of the Ra-Seru heroes}

Gala: That will take us up to Dr. Usha!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala enter the elevator and it takes them up to Dr.
Usha's Research Center. Inside the research center they find many
assistants in lab coats, a peddler, and others who have escaped the
Mist}

********************************
Optional Event: Noa Wants a Bath
********************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala reach the second floor of the Research Center and
find a hot tub in the southwest corner}

Noa: It's a hot spring! Vahn, Gala! A hot spring! There's a hot spring
here.

Gala: Well, imagine that. They even have a bath in this floating place.

Noa: I want to take a bath! I want to get in the hot spring!

Off-Screen: H-Hey! Wait a minute!

{a man walks up wearing only a towel}

Man: What do you mean? I'm going to take a bath!

Noa: I don't mind. We can take a bath together!

Man: N-No, I can't do that.

Noa: Why not? You don't like me?

1) I'm too shy.
2) Look, the bath is too small.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I'm too shy.

Noa: Oh, OK. Well, I don't mind. You're weird.
======================================================================

2) Look, the bath is too small.

Noa: Oh, that's OK! I have a small butt, so we can both fit together!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gala: Noa, stop embarrassing this person!

Noa: You're always yelling at me...

Gala: I'm sorry. She's still young, and doesn't know about human ways.

Man: Ah-hah. Take a bath with a g-girl? I c-couldn't do that. I'm too
shy. I'd like to, but...Mrs. Usha would get mad at me.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala reach the third floor and find Dr. Usha next to a
large reactor in the middle of the cluttered room}

Dr. Usha: Ah, you are here! I was waiting for you. You are the brave
heroes, are you not?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Dr. Usha: Oh? I was wrong? You are not the heroes? Oh, ho, ho, ho! How
mortifying. What a foolish mistake I have made! For ten years, trapped
in the Mist, I have anxiously awaited the coming of liberators. Now it
seems I have waited in vain? How discouraging! Ah? Ha, ha, ha! Of
course! Now I get it! You didn't know what I meant by "heroes"! That's
why you said you weren't the heroes! You see? Dr. Usha understands
everything! The heroes are those who will destroy the Mist. You are the
heroes, correct?
======================================================================

1) Yes

Gala: All three of us hate the Mist and we're going to destroy it by
reviving the Genesis Trees!

Noa: I hate the Mist, too!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dr. Usha: Oh, ho, ho, ho! I knew it! So those are Ra-Seru on your arms,
right?

Gala: Doctor, you know about Ra-Seru?

Dr. Usha: Of course, of course! But who are you? Where do you come
from? Why don't we start with that question.

{Noa walks forward a bit and starts jumping up and down excitedly}

Noa: I, um, well, there was this wolf, and, um, I was about to die,
and...so then, this Ra-Seru. And then the Genesis Tree, yeah, that's
it, then I...

Dr. Usha: Calm down, young lady. We have plenty of time. Try to speak
more slowly.

Narration: Vahn, Noa and Gala each told Dr. Usha of their fateful
adventures. Destruction of Rim Elm's Wall! Terra and Noa! Their fateful
meeting at Mt. Rikuroa! Biron, Songi and Gala! The Sky Gardens of
Jeremi! The mystery of Octam! The tragedy of Hari, the prophet! The
windless city of Vidna! The Seru brides of Ratayu! The swift flying
train! Gaza, the swordmaster of Sol! And the ice-covered town of Buma!
The Mist and the Genesis Trees.The Genesis Trees and Ra-Seru. It was an
amazing tale. In turns the three spoke. It was morning by the time they
finished their tale.

Dr. Usha: Oh, ho, ho, ho! I am amazed! Truly amazed! What a dreadful
ordeal you have undergone for such a young age! Overcoming such
adversity to bring peace to the world! How noble! You are indeed the
heroes! I will do whatever I can to help you! My knowledge is at your
disposal! Of course destroying the Floating Castle should completely
eliminate the Mist from Karisto. But the Floating Castle can only be
reached by air. To revive a Genesis Tree is key. There is a Genesis
Tree in Buma, but is it [sic, recte it is] covered in ice. It is
impossible to revive it in that state. However...the ice can be melted!
There's a Seru in Nivora Ravine to the north that breathes cold air.
Its name is Koru. It was once a peaceful Seru, but the Mist has made it
savage. The only thing to do is to destroy that Seru!

Noa: Wow! That's easy! Doctor, do it for us! Hurry!

Dr. Usha: Noa, calm down. Koru has been storing heat in his body for
many years, and is extremely dangerous. Make a wrong move and KA-BOOM!
Koru will explode and destroy you all! With the TimeSpace Bomb, we
could trigger thermal reversal and destroy him neatly. But we have no
Fire Droplets with which to fabricate a TimeSpace Bomb!

Noa: Fire Droplets? I'll go get them!

Gala: Doctor, where can we find Fire Droplets?

Dr. Usha: In Uru Mais! An ancient book describing how to build a
TimeSpace Bomb says..."He who would seek the Fire Droplets must first
dream in the home of the Seru." "The dream will summon Tieg, who will
bring the Fire Droplet." I don't know who Tieg is, but I do know that
the home of the Seru is Uru Mais! And if you have a dream there, that
Tieg will bring the Fire Droplets. It could be easy or difficult. But
this is the only way! My wife has the key to the door to Uru Mais. You
can get it from her.

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Let's go to Uru Mais!

Gala: Uru Mais. Dreams.Tieg.Fire Droplets. Nothing but riddles!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head down to the first floor where they are
approached by Mrs. Usha}

Mrs. Usha: Oh, it looks like you're all going somewhere. I heard you
talking to the Doctor through that speaking tube over there. Now, I may
be a worrywart, but I'm a little uneasy about this...here are some
questions to see if you properly understood everything! Answer all of
them correctly, and I'll give you a Ruins Key as a prize. Hee-hee!
First question! Now, where is the home of the Seru?

Mrs. Usha: Sorry! You're wrong! Now try again!
======================================================================

2) Usha Research Center

Mrs. Usha: Well done! You certainly are heroes - and smart! You got
every question right! Here's your prize!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Narration: Vahn now has the Ruins Key!

Mrs. Usha: It's my husband's collection. It may have some connection to
Uru Mais. Good luck! I know you'll be able to bring back the Fire
Droplet!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head down the elevator and start their journey
toward Uru Mais so they can obtain the Fire Droplet for making
TimeSpace Bombs}

                                                                [a304]

{The Ra-Seru heroes arrive at Uru Mais. A single ruined structure lies
in front of them and beyond that lies a gigantic black pyramid with
strange pillars surrounding its top}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! This must be the place! This must be Uru Mais!

Gala: Those strange structures in the distance must be Uru Mais, the
ancient ruins, Dr. Usha said. But Vahn, have you noticed something
unusual?

1) There's no Mist here?
2) There are no Seru monsters?
3) Noa is full of energy?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) There's no Mist here?

Gala: That's right. There's no Genesis Tree to be seen, yet the Mist
doesn't flow in here. Those ruins must have the power to hold off the
Mist.
======================================================================

2) There are no Seru monsters?

Gala: No Mist and no Seru monsters -- even though there's no Genesis
Tree!
======================================================================

3) Noa is full of energy?

Gala:  Yes, you're right! Ha ha! Vahn, you don't notice what's around
you, but you do notice Noa! You're the leader, Vahn! So stay alert,
please! Be aware of what's around us! There is no Mist and no Seru! You
didn't sense that as strange?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Noa looks around briefly}

Noa: Vahn, Gala, there's no one here. Where could Tieg be?

Gala: Vahn, do you remember what Dr. Usha said?

1) Of course I do!
2) Um, what did he say again?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Of course I do!

Gala: Very good, Vahn!
======================================================================

2) Um, what did he say again?

Gala: You're the leader, so act like one! Oh, what are we going to do
with you?  Now listen. We came here to get the Fire Droplet to make the
TimeSpace Bombs. We should dream in Uru Mais to get the Fire Droplet
from Tieg. That's what Dr. Usha said! At least try to remember where
you are and what you have to do!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gala: Well, let's go dream, like Dr. Usha told us to do. Then we'll see
if Tieg will actually give us the Fire Droplet!

{Noa notices the ruined building in front of the black pyramid
structure and points at it}

Noa: Vahn, Gala! There's some weird house here! Let's go inside!

{Noa runs inside the ruined house}

Gala: Noa, wait! Don't go inside by yourself!

{Gala looks at Vahn}

Gala: What are we going to do with that kid?

{Vahn and Gala walk into the ruined house that Noa ran into. The camera
scrolls to the side and Cara can be seen watching the Ra-Seru heroes.
Vahn, Noa and Gala leave the ruin and run up the steps to the top of
the black pyramid. They stop in front of the strange centerpiece}

Gala: So this is Uru Mais. These are strange ruins indeed. I don't see
any place where we could use the Ruins Key from Mrs. Usha.

{Noa suddenly puts her hands to her ears and looks in the opposite
direction}

Noa: What?

Gala: Noa, what's the matter?

Noa: I hear something! I hear something! It's a voice! I hear a voice!

{Gala puts his right hand to his ear}

Gala: A voice? ...! Vahn, Noa I hear it, too! I hear words inside my
head!

{The centerpiece begins to glow and a ray of light shoots upward from
it into the air. From the sides of the black pyramid three triangular
doorways are opened}

Whispers: You...was...key...ruins...who has...door...dreams...will be
open...Gather at...dream...! Door...open...

Gala: Whose voice is that?

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Did you see that light? I saw a light down there!

Gala: However it is seems to have opened the door because we have the
Ruins Key!

Noa: Vahn, let's go inside!

Gala: This must mean that this door leads to the Fire Droplet. Alright,
let's go inside!

{The Ra-Seru heroes descend the gigantic staircase and enter the right
triangular entrance. Inside they travel the winding tunnels until they
reach a wide hallway surrounded on each side by pillars. They reach the
end of the room to see what looks like a large water bed enclosed in a
small pyramid. Vahn closes his eyes and begins to glow}

Narration: Suddenly, serene Words enter Vahn's mind!

Words: Vahn. Vahn. Vahn and Meta. Welcome, human. Welcome, Ra-Seru. The
Stone Stage awaits you. It awaits your dreams, it awaits your minds.

{As if sleepwalking, Vahn starts to head over to the Stone Stage, the
thing that looks like a water bed enclosed in a pyramid}

Noa: Vahn, what are you doing? You can't go by yourself!

{The pyramid disappears with a bright flash of light and Vahn ascends
the Stone Stage}

Gala: Hey, Vahn! What's going on? You can't go by yourself!
{Once Vahn reaches the center of the Stone Stage the pyramid reappears
around the Stone Stage and Vahn collapses into sleep}

Noa: Look, Gala! Vahn is sleeping!

Terra: Noa! Can you hear me? You mustn't awaken Vahn! Vahn is dreaming!
Dreams mirror the heart. Vahn is looking into his own heart, and Tieg
is watching.

{The screen starts to ripple and in a few moments fades into blackness}

Off-Screen: (Silent contemplation)

Village Elder: When the baby was born, there was too much hemorrhaging.
If only we had Drake Water, then Nora would be alright. With this Mist,
it would be next to impossible to reach Drake Castle.

Off-Screen: Vahn! Vahn!

{The scene becomes clear and a much younger looking Vahn is seen
standing on the front steps to his house in Rim Elm listening in on the
door. A woman is in front of him reprimanding him for eavesdropping}

Woman: Vahn! What are you doing? Don't eavesdrop like that!

{Vahn shakes his head in defiance and enters his house. He stops to see
his father Val speaking with the Village Elder}

Val: Welcome home, Vahn! Village Elder is here, so go pay your
respects!

{Vahn bows to the Village Elder}

Village Elder: Ah, Vahn! You're such a good child! I'll be going now.
Vahn, take good care of your mother!

{The Village Elder takes his leave. Vahn turns to look at his dying
mother in bed, with a crib holding a newborn Nene right by her side.
Vahn runs outside his house and Val walks in front of the door, calling
out to him}

Val: Vahn! It's almost dark! Don't go outside the Wall now!

{The scene fades to black}

Off-Screen: Val! Val!

{The scene changes to the interior of Vahn's house at night. A hunter
is standing in front of Val}

Hunter: Val, I looked all over the village, but I couldn't find him! I
couldn't find Vahn! Just as I thought. Vahn must have sneaked outside
the Wall when we weren't looking.

{Val turns around and walks toward the other end of the room. He spins
around and faces the hunter suddenly}

Val: Oh, no! He must be going to Drake Castle! He must have heard me
talking to Village Elder! He's going to get Drake Water!

{Val and the hunter both run outside the house. The scene changes to
Val speaking with the Village Elder in front of the door leading
outside the Wall}

Village Elder: Val, can't you wait until the wind changes direction in
the morning...

{Val shakes his head}

Village Elder: If I cannot convince you otherwise, then so be it!

{Village Elder turns to the two Wall guards}

Village Elder: I give my permission to open the gate!

{The guards turn to the Wall and unbar the large double doors. Val
walks slowly forward and disappears into the Mist outside. The scene
cuts to black}

Off-Screen: Oh, dear! Vahn managed to return safely from Drake Castle,
but Val was attacked by a Seru. He survived, but they say his leg will
never be the same again! And Nora! Oh, what a poor family!

{The scene changes to the inside of Vahn's home. Vahn is standing next
to Nene in her crib. Nora is no longer in her bed...}

{Vahn opens the door of his house and heads down the steps. As he tries
to leave the last step everything turns into darkness and he starts to
fall. A voice speaks to him}

Voice: Vahn, Do not blame yourself for the past. Do not feel guilty.
The past cannot be changed. Instead, you must be brave and work to
create the future! That is what it means to be human! For humans are
those who are brave enough to create their own future.

{The scene changes to Vahn asleep on the Stone Stage. Noa and Gala are
standing right next to him}

Narration: The words echo in Vahn's mind.

{A flash of light erupts}

Words: Vahn, my child! Your dream is fulfilled.

{The Ra-Seru heroes are each surrounded in a radiant light and are
transported to the top of the pyramid next to the centerpiece. Vahn is
now completely awake}

Noa: Vahn...are you alright? Were you having a bad dream?

Gala: Vahn, if you don't want to tell us what you were dreaming about,
that's O.K.

{They turn to look at the strange structure in the center of the top of
the pyramid}

Noa: Hey! Vahn, look!

{A red ray of light shines at the bottom of the left pillar that holds
the circular object in the middle of the pyramid, yet the other two
pillars remain the same}

Gala: A ray of light! From the pillar!

{Suddenly, from all sides of the pyramid strange ghosts appear and
levitate in the air}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Someone's there!

Gala: Whoever it is must be using the light to show himself to us.
Maybe that's Tieg! Vahn, let's go look!

{The Ra-Seru heroes walk over to one of the strange images of Tieg to
hear what it has to say but can't make out any words. They decide to
continue on with their dreams and head over to the left side of the
pyramid and enter the triangular entrance that's glowing green. They
travel to the end where the Stone Stage is}

Narration: Suddenly, serene words enter Noa's mind!

Words: Noa. Noa. Noa and Terra. Welcome, human. Welcome, Ra-Seru. The
Stone Stage awaits you. It awaits your dreams, it awaits your mind,
Noa.

{As if sleepwalking, Noa starts to head over to the Stone Stage}

Gala: Noa! What's wrong, Noa? Where are you going?

{The pyramid disappears with a bright flash of light and Noa ascends
the Stone Stage. Once Noa reaches the center of the Stone Stage the
pyramid reappears around it and Noa collapses into sleep}

Gala: Vahn! Listen. You can tell by Noa's breathing - she's sound
asleep!

Ozma: Gala! Noa is being drawn into Tieg's spirit world! She's going to
have an important dream now!

{The screen starts to ripple and in a few moments fades into blackness}

King Nebular: Noa! I am thinking of naming this child Noa.

Queen Minea: That's a lovely name. Noa, the promise of a new era!

{The scene becomes clear.Aking stands in front of his queen, who is
carrying a baby}

King Nebular: Yes! A new era of prosperity and hope - that is what this
child represents.

Jette: Your Majesty!

{King Nebular and Queen Minea turn to the room's entrance}

Jette: Your Majesty! I've come on a most pressing matter!

King Nebular: Jette, enter.

{A man in elegant attire with long, spiky red hair walks quickly into
the room and bows to Queen Minea}

Jette: I trust Her Majesty is in good spirits!

{Jette walks over to King Nebular}

Jette: Actually... (Speaking in low voice)

King Nebular: What?! Cort did that?

Jette: You see, Your Majesty... (Speaking in low voice)

King Nebular: I understand. I'll go at once!

{Jette walks backward a few paces and stops. He bows to Queen Minea.
Jette turns around and walks over to the entrance and stops to bow to
Queen Minea once more before exiting the room}

Queen Minea: Did something happen to Cort?

King Nebular: It's...It's nothing to worry about. I'm sure...I can't
talk now. I'm going below to investigate the matter for myself.

{King Nebular rushes out of the room}

Queen Minea: Noa...Conkram's future...Your future...Noa, I want you to
have a happy, prosperous future.

{The screen goes black}

Off-Screen: It's the Mist! Get rid of the Seru! Lock the doors!

{The scene transitions to the outside of Conkram's palace as Seru
attack the city. Queen Minea remains on the palace balcony carrying Noa
in her arms in front of a man with wings}

Queen Minea: Courageous soldiers of Soren, this town of Conkram will
soon die. I care nothing of my own life. Let the Mist take it. After
all, I am the queen! I must share the same fate as this nation. But
this newly born child, Noa...I want her to see the future! Please, take
this child to a land untouched by the Mist! Take her to a world with a
future! Please!

Soren: Your Majesty, your courage is inspiring! I will take Noa as far
as I can, however far that may be.

Queen Minea: Thank you! Now, hurry! The Mist is getting closer.

{Queen Minea gives the infant Noa one last kiss before putting her in
the arms of the Soren}

Soren: Your Majesty...

Queen Minea: Go now! Hurry! The Mist draws near!

{The Soren ascends into the air and flies away from the city of
Conkram. Queen Minea rushes to the edge of the balcony and drops to her
knees}

Queen Minea: Oh, Noa!

{The scene transitions to the Soren flying over Mt. Rikuroa. He
suddenly spins out and falls all the way down to Mt. Rikuroa's summit,
next to the Genesis Tree. The Soren lies dead and a wolf comes out of
the entrance to the summit and sniffs at Noa's body.It howls into the
air and suddenly Terra floats into sight}

Terra: So, your name is Noa. How do you do, Noa? I am Terra. I have
decided to live with you!

{The screen gets dark and fills with stars in the distance that spiral
downward. Words enter Noa's mind}

Voice: Noa, young victim of the whims of Fate. The past etched in your
mind is now revealed! The pain of your past may have left large scars
and may gnaw at your heart. But never lose hope! For when there is
hope, you can draw strength from the past. That is what being human is
all about! For humans are those who, with hope in their hearts, find
the future through the past.

{The scene changes to Noa asleep on the Stone Stage. Vahn and Gala are
standing right next to her}

Narration: The words echo in Noa's mind.

{A flash of light erupts}

Words: Noa, my child! Your dream is fulfilled.

{The Ra-Seru heroes are each surrounded in a radiant light and are
transported to the top of the pyramid next to the centerpiece. Noa is
now completely awake}

Gala: Noa...Are you alright?

Noa: Uh-huh. Vahn, Gala...Let's go to Conkram after we destroy the
Floating Castle! Someone's waiting for me in Conkram! Someone who knows
me! So we have to go to Conkram, O.K.? Do you promise?

{A green ray of light shines at the bottom of the right pillar that
holds the circular object in the middle of the pyramid, only the light
in the middle remains to be activated. The images of Tieg are now even
clearer than they were before and the words can be heard with more
clarity}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! There it is again - the light!

Terra: That light is called the Phantasmal Light. It's activated by
your dreams.

Noa: Phantasmal Light? Vahn, Gala, that's neat! This is fun!

Gala: Ozma, you've heard of it before?!

Ozma: What?

Gala: Now why would a Ra-Seru like you know about the Phantasmal Light?
Why?

Ozma: Well, I...

Gala: Tell me about it if you know. Or are the Ra-Seru trying to
manipulate us for some purpose?

Ozma: No! That's not it at all! Gala, you must believe me! We just
wanted to talk to you minds, rather than explaining things with words.

Gala: (Silence) Well if talking is that disagreeable to you, do what
you must. But listen, Ozma...If your intentions ever diverge from
mine...Then, believe me, you won't get away with it!

Ozma: (Silence)

Noa: What are you so angry about, Gala? I don't understand! Boo-hoo!
Come on, Vahn, we have to have the last dream.

{The Ra-Seru heroes descend the gigantic staircase and enter the back
triangular entrance which radiates with a blue light. They reach the
end of the pathand reach the Stone Stage. Gala suddenly closes his eyes
and begins to glow}

Narration: Suddenly, serene Words enter Gala's mind!

Words: Gala. Gala. Gala and Ozma. Welcome, human. Welcome, Ra-Seru. The
Stone Stage awaits you. It awaits your dreams, it awaits your mind,
Gala.

{As if sleepwalking, Gala starts to head over to the Stone Stage. Noa
walks over to Gala}

Noa: Gala! Hey, Gala! Vahn, Gala is walking away!

{The pyramid disappears and Gala walks to the center of the Stone
Stage. As he collapses in a daze the pyramid reappears over the Stone
Stage}

Noa: Vahn! Listen! Gala is snoring!

Terra: Noa! Can you hear me? You mustn't awaken Gala! Gala is dreaming!
Dreams mirror the heart. Gala is looking into his own heart, and Tieg
is watching.

{The screen ripples and fades into blackness}

Off-Screen: Gala must be the strongest in all of Biron!

Off-Screen: He has to be! Songi can train all he wants, but he could
never match Gala's spiritual strength!

Off-Screen: Silence! It's Master Zopu!

{The scene becomes clear. Gala and Songi are facing a platform while a
group of Biron monks stand in a row behind them. Master Zopu enters the
room}

Zopu: Eight years have passed since the Mist covered the earth! These
are difficult times, but...I am pleased at how hard each of you is
devoting yourself to your training. Now, as you all know, tomorrow is
Biron's Transmigration Festival. As always, we will hold the ritual
tournament.  Gala!

Gala: Yes, Master Zopu!

{Gala steps forward}

Zopu: Songi!

Songi: Yes, Master Zopu!

{Songi steps forward}

Zopu: As monks of Biron, there are things expected of you. You must
fight with all your skills in order to make this a chivalrous
tournament.

{Gala and Songi bow in Biron monk fashion}

Gala: Yes, sir!
Songi: Yes, sir!

Zopu: That is enough training for today. Time to begin your individual
tasks!

{Zopu and the group of Biron monks head out the room. Gala and Songi
remain where they are. Songi walks over to Gala}

Songi: Hey, Gala! That ritual tournament is such a drag, eh?

Gala: (Silence)

Songi: Hey, I don't like that look in your eyes!

{Songi walks forward a little and spits on the ground}

Songi: Gala! I bet you think you're going to win, don't you?

Gala: No, I...

Songi: To hell with you! I'm not stupid! I can tell by that look in
your eyes! Hmmf. Ah, forget it. Let's just have ourselves a good time
tomorrow, alright? Ha, ha, ha!

{Songi leaves the room and Gala remains looking at the floor. The
screen fades to black}

Off-Screen: But, Songi! Tomorrow is the tournament! If you take Jigul
grass, your body will go numb and you won't be able to fight!

{The screen clears and Songi is seen standing in front of one of the
females in the monastery}

Songi: Mind your own business! I can't take this headache anymore!
Besides, everyone knows that Jigul grass is the best thing for a
headache. So quit yapping and just give me the Jigul grass now!

Woman: Alright, but don't blame me if things go wrong.

{The woman heads over to the kitchen cabinet and takes out the Jigul
grass. She heads back over to Songi and places it in his hands}

Woman: Songi, do you want water?

Songi: No! I'm going to take this after I go back to my room.

{Songi heads out of the room and the woman paces for a while before she
realizes just what's going on}

Woman: !

{She rushes out of the doorway that Songi just left through. The screen
becomes black}

Songi: Oh, Gala. This is so embarrassing, but...I was afraid that you'd
beat me tomorrow, and...I knew I shouldn't, but I took Fury Boosts to
help me fight better tomorrow!

{The screen clears and Gala and Songi are seen talking in front of
Biron's shrine}

Songi: But as soon as I took them, I started feeling guilty! I felt
self-loathing. So here! You take a Fury Boost, too!

{Songi holds out his hand}

Gala: But why?

Songi: This is a contest, so we gotta be fair, right? And I want this
to be a fair fight! So go ahead, take it!

Gala: Well, I don't know...Alright! I'll do it!

{Gala takes the "Fury Boost" and swallows it}

Songi: Pretty good! You just gulped that right down! Ha ha ha! O.K.,
let's go!

{Gala and Songi walk over to the main hall. The scene transitions to
Zopu standing on the platform with Gala and Songi immediately in front
of it. A group of Biron monks watch in eagerness to see the duel
between Gala and Songi}

Zopu: Gala! Songi! Are you ready?

{Gala and Songi bow and then turn to face each other}

Zopu: In praise of the great benevolence and miracles of Biron, we hold
this ritual tournament!

{Gala and Songi get prepared in their fighting stances}

Zopu: Let the tournament begin!

Songi: What's the matter, Gala? Are you scared? Fight me!

Gala: Uh...

{The screen changes to Gala's point-of-view and Songi and the room
around him turns a dark blue and then changes to a dark red color}

Songi: Come on, Gala!

{Songi rushes toward Gala in a flash and fells him with one blow to the
head}

Off-Screen: It only took a matter of seconds! Gala lost! I don't
believe it!

Songi: Ha, ha, ha! That's right! I beat Gala! Me, Songi! I win!

{Zopu shakes his head in disappointment and leaves the room. The screen
fades to blackness}

Off-Screen: Songi! You mad Gala take the Jigul grass, didn't you!

{The screen clears and the woman who originally gave Songi the Jigul
grass is standing right in front of him}

Songi: Aw, be quiet! How should I know what medicine he takes, anyway?

Woman: Stop playing dumb! You may think you've tricked Gala...But he
knew! He knew all along!

Songi: What?

Woman: I told him! I told him that I gave you the Jigul grass. And I
warned him not to take any medicine you gave him!

Songi: !

Woman: But Gala just laughed. "Oh, Songi's my best friend. Don't
worry!" he said.

{Songi shakes his head and walks slowly out the room. The screen goes
black}

Songi: Gala! Darnit! He's sleeping! He's still numb!

{The scene changes to Gala sleeping in his bed and Songi standing over
him}

Songi: Gala, you think you're clever, don't you? You think you let me
win! You're so arrogant! You think it's funny to make a fool of me like
that? Some best friend! You hypocrite! You'll never get away with this
- Never!! I'll crush you! Gala, I'll beat you to a pulp!

{The screen gets dark and fills with stars in the distance that spiral
downward. Words enter Gala's mind}

Voice: Gala, you did your best. You have nothing to be ashamed of.
After all, even when unavoidable misfortune occurs, it is the spirit
that remains in the end. So be proud of yourself! And use that pride to
create happiness! That is what it means to be human! For humans are
those who create their own happiness with their pride.

{The screen changes to Gala asleep on the Stone Stage. Vahn and Noa are
standing right next to him}

Narration: The words echo in Noa's mind.

{A flash of light erupts}

Words: Gala, my child! Your dream is fulfilled.

{The Ra-Seru heroes are each surrounded in a radiant light and are
transported to the top of the pyramid next to the centerpiece. Gala is
now completely awake}

Noa: Gala, you seem sad.

Gala: In my dream, I remembered something I didn't want to. So that
means we are all finished dreaming?

{The final Phantasmal Light shines blue onto the centerpiece. A flash
of light shines and the images of Tieg can be seen with utmost clarity}

Narration: Serene words echo in their minds.

Voice: You did well, my children! Your dreams are now all fulfilled,
and our souls are recalled to life. We shall teach you the Past! We
shall teach you the Future! That is Tieg's gift! That is the mission of
Tieg, the Seru-human, both Seru and human!

Noa: Look! It's Tieg! I can see Tieg clearly now!

Gala: Tieg...Both Seru and human...?

{Vahn, Noa and Gala walk to the first Tieg and decide to listen to all
of what Tieg has to say, one by one}

Tieg 1: In the beginning there was Tieg, and Tieg was everything. Then
Tieg divided Himself into two. Those were human and Seru. Tieg also
divided the world into two: the human world and Seru-kai.

Tieg 2: To protect two worlds, Tieg placed ten Genesis Trees in human
world and a Mother Genesis Tree in Seru-kai.

Tieg 3: To govern Seru-kai, Tieg chose a small group of Seru and gave
them special Ra-Seru power.

Tieg 4: A thousand years ago, by the human calendar, the Ra-Seru Rogue
plotted behind Tieg's back. Rogue gave the humans Seru, but humans
coveted the Seru's power, bringing chaos to the human world.

Tieg 5: In the beginning there was Tieg, and Tieg was everything. Then
Tieg divided Himself into two. Those were human and Seru. Tieg also
divided the world into two: the human world and Seru-kai.

Tieg 6: To protect two worlds, Tieg placed ten Genesis Trees in human
world and a Mother Genesis Tree in Seru-kai.

Tieg 7: To govern Seru-kai, Tieg chose a small group of Seru and gave
them special Ra-Seru power.

Tieg: Did Tieg tell you everything?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Tieg: Tieg is Time. Tieg is unconditional Words. It is Tieg's will for
the Words to be full of humanness.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Tieg: Vahn, Noa, Gala. Do the three of you now understand the Seru, Ra-
Seru and Tieg?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Tieg: Tieg is Time. Tieg is unconditional Words. It is Tieg's will for
the Words to be full of humanness.
======================================================================

a. Yes

Tieg: Tieg knows all. Now Tieg will entrust you with the Fire Droplet!
The Fire Droplet! From an age when chaos was the world and the world
was chaos...The Fire Droplet is chaos, and chaos is the Fire Droplet.
Tieg, the pure, perfect being, Seru-human who is of spirit only...He
shall now answer the hopes of human and Ra-Seru by opening the door to
His world here and now!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Tieg and his many duplicates begin to levitate in a circle around the
centerpiece on top of the pyramid}

Noa: Vahn, Gala...I'm scared...

Gala: We must make room for Tieg.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala walk back and wait at the top of the staircase}

Tieg: Look, humans. Tieg has brought the two worlds together into one.
Chaos is summoned. The Fire Droplet is chaos. Tieg now returns to
chaos.

{The images of Tieg surround the centerpiece and levitate even higher
into the air. A portal opens above it and the images of enter it. The
portal closes behind them}

Noa: Tieg's gone.

{The centerpiece begins to glow and suddenly shatters into thousands of
little shards. The screen begins to ripple and turns red, then blue,
then green. Suddenly the Ra-Seru heroes are standing in a complete
void}

Tieg: Humans, take the Fire Droplet.

{The Ra-Seru heroes watch as a crimson-colored object in the shape of a
tear drop descends in front of them, pulsating with light}

Tieg: Tieg has left the humans with his knowledge. Vahn, use your
courage...Gala, use your pride...Noa, use your hope...With these three
things, knowledge will create the future. Never forget that.

{The screen ripples and fades}

Gala: A dream...? That was all a dream?

{The screen changes as Vahn, Noa and Gala stand on top of the pyramid
at Uru Mais, the Fire Droplet lying in the center}

Noa: No, Gala! Look! It's the Fire Droplet!

{Vahn walks forward and picks up the Fire Droplet}

Narration: Vahn now has the Fire Droplet!

{Noa waves to the air in front of her}

Noa: Thank you, Tieg. I hope we can meet again some day.

Gala: We did it! Now, Vahn, we must hurry back to Dr. Usha's
laboratory!

{The Ra-Seru heroes begin to descend the pyramid when all of a sudden
the entire area begins to shake}

Gala: What's this? Is this the world of Tieg again...

Noa: No, that's not Tieg! Look! The whole forest is shaking!

Terra: Noa! That is a Seru that doesn't belong on the surface! It's
evil Sim-Seru, Juggernaut!

Noa: Juggernaut...

Meta: We must run away now! Vahn! It's too dangerous! The only thing we
can do is flee!

{The Ra-Seru heroes run down the pyramid. Trees start collapsing one
after another and the evil Sim-Seru Juggernaut overlooks Uru Mais. It
destroys Uru Mais with a blast of energy and disappears}

Noa: Uru Mais is all destroyed.

Gala: Now we can never borrow the power of Tieg again?

Terra: The enemy...The Mist's henchmen must have felt the Words of
Tieg.

Ozma: Tieg was an obstacle to their goal.

Meta: That is why they unleashed Juggernaut on this holy place!

Gala: But we still have the Fire Droplet that Tieg gave us! Come on,
everyone! Let's teach those henchmen of the Mist a good lesson!

{Noa starts jumping up and down in excitement}

Noa: Yeah! Let's teach them a lesson! Let's get 'em real good!

{A voice interrupts Noa}

Cara: Ha, ha, ha!

{Cara seductively walks over to the Ra-Seru heroes}

Cara: What, are you having a party? With a monster like that on the
loose?

Gala: Cara! What are you doing here?

Cara: Ha, ha, ha! Well, that's a fine how-do-you-do! I can do whatever
I want, wherever I want!

Noa: Hey, Cara. Why don't you give us that egg of a Ra-Seru you have?

Cara: Egg of a Ra-Seru? Oh, you mean this Ra-Seru Egg. Hmmm. O.K.!

Gala: What?

Noa: Yeah! Hooray! Let ME have it! I want it! I want the egg!

{Noa rushes toward Cara but she stops her in place by putting her hand
on her head}

Cara: Wait! I'm not going to give this Ra-Seru Egg to you for nothing!

{Noa hangs her head in disappointment}

Noa: I knew it...

Cara: If you awaken Buma's Genesis Tree, like you did the one in
Sol...Then I'll give you my Ra-Seru Egg as a reward.

Gala: That was your plan from the very beginning.

Cara: Well, get to it, kids.

{Cara starts to walk away}

Gala: Cara, wait! Tell me why? Why do you want us to awaken Buma's
Genesis Tree?

Cara: Well, if I said it was for love, little kids like you wouldn't
understand anyway. Ha, ha, ha!

{Cara takes off into the forest}

Noa: Vahn, what's love? Does that have something to do with the Genesis
Tree?

1) You're still too young to know.
2) I don't know either.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) You're still too young to know.

Noa: Vahn, you're so mean! I don't care anyway! I'll figure it out on
my own!
======================================================================

2) I don't know either.

Noa: So you don't know what love is either? Well, let's try and figure
it out together!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gala: Hurry, both of you! We have to deliver the Fire Droplet to Dr.
Usha!
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{The Ra-Seru heroes return to Dr. Usha's Research Center with the Fire
Droplet in hand}

Dr. Usha: I can tell by the sound of your voice that you have the Fire
Droplet! Good work! I'll send down the elevator right away!

{The elevator comes down and the Ra-Seru heroes board it. The scene
changes to the elevator operators within the tower}

Voice: Hey, you knuckleheads! The visitors are on the elevator! Start
winding!

{They ascend on the elevator and run up to Dr. Usha's room on the 3rd
floor}

Dr. Usha: Oh, ho, ho! Amazing! Simply amazing! You came back with the
Fire Droplets! Tell me! Tell me about Uru Mais! Tell me about your
dreams! About Tieg! About the Fire Droplets!

Usha's Assistant: Doctor! Dr. Usha!

{Dr. Usha's assistant walks up to him and whispers in his ear}

Dr. Usha: What? (Silence) Yes, I suppose you are right. We have no time
to waste if we are to free the world from the Mist! Now then! Give me
the Fire Droplet!

{Vahn reaches in his shirt and pulls out the Fire Droplet, which he
gives to Dr. Usha}

Narration: Vahn gave the Fire Droplet to Dr. Usha!

Dr. Usha: So this is the Fire Droplet, the mysterious treasure! I feel
such powerful energy! Assistant 1! Assistant 2! Are you ready?

{An assistant gets ready at the machine behind Dr. Usha. The other
assistant takes the Fire Droplet from Dr. Usha's hand and jumps on top
of the large reactor in the center of the room}

Dr. Usha: Standby radioactive reactor! Set temperature to 8400!

{Assistant 1 starts pressing all sorts of buttons on the machine}

Assistant 1: Temperature set to 8400! Reactor heating smoothly! Standby
complete!

Dr. Usha: Begin heating once the imperial solvent is ready!

{Assistant 3 jumps on top of the other side of the reactor and pulls
out a large stone}

Assistant 3: Supersaturate Power Stones with Dragon Water!

{The assistant throws the Power Stones inside of the reactor, causing
the electric energy inside to expand and shake furiously}

Dr. Usha: All set? We're going to insert the Fire Droplets into the
Imperial Solvent!

Assistant 2: Flash protection ready!

Assistant 1: Fire extinguishing system ready!

Dr. Usha: Insert!

{The 2nd assistant pulls out the Fire Droplet received from Dr. Usha}

Assistant 2: Inserting!

{He throws the Fire Droplet inside the reactor}

Dr. Usha: Assistant 1, Assistant 2, good work! We're all finished.
Sometimes I even impress myself! Ha, ha, ha! Here they are, the
TimeSpace Bombs!

Narration: Vahn now has four TimeSpace Bombs!

Dr. Usha: Why four TimeSpace Bombs? There is a reason. Listen! One is
for blasting open the entrance to Nivora Ravine.  Place it in front of
the block of ice at the entrance and press the switch. The bomb will
explode three seconds after you press the switch, so find shelter
quickly! The other three must be set off simultaneously. In Nivora
Ravine, the road splits into three tunnels. Thunder Tunnel, Fire Tunnel
and Wind Tunnel. You must each enter a separate tunnel! Each tunnel
leads to Koru. When you all get there...you must set the TimeSpace
Bombs at the same time! Koru can only be destroyed by the combined
blasts of all three bombs! Good luck! I know you can do it. You can
melt the ice of Buma!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala descend the stairs and head over to the elevator,
but not before they are stopped once again by Mrs. Usha}

Mrs. Usha: I'm sorry. I just can't help being a worrywart. I'm afraid I
have to give you a test again. Let's start with an easy one. Now, where
is it you want to go?

1) Bornea Ravine
2) Sol
3) Buma
4) Nivora Ravine
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Bornea Ravine
2) Sol
3) Buma

Mrs. Usha: Sorry! You're wrong! Now try again!
======================================================================

4) Nivora Ravine:

Mrs. Usha: Very good!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mrs. Usha: Now, second question. Where will you use the TimeSpace Bomb
first?

1) Uru Mais
2) Koru
3) Entrance to Nivora Ravine
4) Buma
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~-

1)Uru Mais
2) Koru
4) Buma

Mrs. Usha: Sorry! You're wrong! Now try again!
======================================================================

3) Entrance to Nivora Ravine

Mrs. Usha:
Ooh, you're all so smart!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mrs. Usha: Now, how long after the switch is pressed will the TimeSpace
Bomb explode?

1) Three seconds
2) Two seconds
3) One second
4) Game changes after 3 seconds
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) Two seconds
3) One second
4) Game changes after 3 seconds

Mrs. Usha: Sorry! You're wrong! Now try again!
======================================================================

1) Three seconds

Mrs. Usha: Correct.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mrs. Usha: Now for the last question. Why do you want to destroy Koru
with the TimeSpace Bomb?

1) A TimeSpace Bomb is there.
2) Because we hate Nivora Ravine.
3) To destroy the Mist Generator.
4) To awaken Buma's Genesis Tree
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) A TimeSpace Bomb is there.
2) Because we hate Nivora Ravine.
3) To destroy the Mist Generator.

Mrs. Usha: Sorry! You're wrong! Now try again!
======================================================================

4) To awaken Buma's Genesis Tree

Mrs. Usha: Precisely! If you're lucky, it will stop the flow of cold
air from the Nivora Ravine...and melt the ice around Buma's Genesis
Tree!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mrs. Usha: Well done! You certainly are heroes - and smart! You got
every question right!

Narration: Vahn now has five Healing Berries, five Healing Fruits, and
five Magic Fruits!

Mrs. Usha: Those are your prizes! Nivora Ravine is cold, so make sure
you don't catch a cold there! Good luck! I know you'll be successful!

                                                                [a305]

{The Ra-Seru heroes leave the research center and make the long journey
over to Nivora Ravine. They reach the entrance that is blocked with
gigantic columns of ice}

Gala: Dr. Usha said to plant the first TimeSpace Bomb here.

Noa: Oh, goodie! Goodie! There's gonna be a BIG explosion!

Gala: I'll set the TimeSpace Bomb. When I press the buttons, I'll give
the signal. When I do, run and find shelter!

Noa: Gala, it explodes in three seconds, right?

Gala: That's right.

Noa: In three seconds Nivora will change! In one, two, three!

{Gala facepalms and then heads in between two of the ice columns where
he sets down the TimeSpace Bomb}

Gala: First, connect the wires. Then go like this...

{Vahn and Noa nod and start running in the other direction}

Gala: All set! Alright! I pressed the switch. Run!

Noa: One!

{Gala starts running as a blue mass of energy starts to consume the
pillars of ice}

Noa: Two!

{The energy explodes and sends the Ra-Seru heroes sprawled all over the
floor}

Noa: Ugh...

{Noa gets up from the ground, followed by Vahn and Gala}

Noa: Dr. Usha, you liar! I counted right! I counted one-two...

Gala: Was it defective? Why did it explode so soon? Is everyone
alright?

{Vahn and Noa nod in confirmation}

Gala: Well, there are no doubts about the TimeSpace Bomb's power. Look
at the entrance!

{They look at the entrance to see it completely clear of ice}

Noa: Wow! That TimeSpace Bomb is so powerful! But...if the TimeSpace
Bomb is so powerful, why didn't they use it on the Genesis Tree in
Buma? Then they could have melted the ice on the Genesis Tree right
away.

Terra: No, no, you can't do that! Now listen, Noa. A powerful bomb like
that would destroy the Genesis Tree - and Buma and everyone there!

Noa: Oh...I guess the TimeSpace Bomb is too powerful...

{The Ra-Seru heroes head into the entrance and make their way up to the
Ravine's summit. As they are about to reach the summit the scene
changes and three Soren are seen standing at the top of Nivora Ravine}

Soren 1: Careful! If you slip, you'll fall right into the Mist!

Soren 2: Aaahhh...

{The most highly decorated Soren who seems to be the leader of the
bunch turns around to face the other two. His name is Luctes}

Luctes: Now that the Genesis Tree of Sol is revived and the Mist around
it is gone...

Soren 2: This is our chance to charge the Floating Castle!

Soren 1: Don't be hasty! Zora is powerful!

Luctes: Quiet! Someone's coming!

{The Soren look below them as Noa runs into view}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Over here! There's no Mist over here!

{The Soren extend their wings and fly away. Vahn and Gala reach the
outside and meet with Noa}

Gala: Ah, the summit. So not even the Mist can make it to this great
height.

{Noa looks toward the sky}

Noa: (Silence)

Gala: What's wrong, Noa?

Noa: That's strange...I thought I saw someone nearby...

{Gala scans the environment}

Gala: I don't see anyone.

Noa: Never mind! Vahn, Gala! Let's go!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala descend the mountain and head east until they reach
a cave entrance. They enter the cave and reach an area branching into
three tunnels}

Gala: This must be the entrance to the three tunnels. We'll have to
split up from here and make way on our own. Vahn, Noa. Are you ready?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Gala: Alright, Vahn. You're the leader. You lead!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala regroup}
======================================================================

1) Yes

Gala: Good! I'll take the Thunder Tunnel on the right, and head for
where we'll set the bomb.

Noa: I'll take the middle tunnel. That means you have the left tunnel,
Vahn.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala enter the separate tunnels}

Narration: Do you want help for controls in the Three Tunnels?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

(The screen focuses on Vahn at the tunnel entrance)
======================================================================

1) Yes

Narration: In this dungeon, Vahn, Noa and Gala split up and go into
separate tunnels. To control a different character press the square
button on the controller. The screen will jump to a character in another
tunnel and you will have control of this character.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala are forced to help each other from their own tunnels
by removing obstacles from each others paths. Vahn reaches a large
pillar in the center of the path which has a large bar on each end
preventing Vahn from passing. Meanwhile Gala has made his way down the
path only to be stopped by a large gate preventing him from going any
farther}

Narration: Do you wish to push this?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Vahn did not do anything.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Narration: It won't budge an inch no matter how hard you push.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn is forced to wait until he can receive help from Noa. She arrives
at the end of a walkway overlooking Vahn and steps on a symbol that
begins to glow}

Narration: A strange crest on the ground began to shine!

{A symbol starts to shine on the pillar in front of Vahn}

Narration: Do you wish to push this?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Vahn did not do anything.
======================================================================

1) Yes

{Vahn pushes the pillar causing it to rotate, which closes the gap
above and allows Noa to walk to the other side}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn rushes farther down the path until he is stopped by a large gap
preventing him from crossing. He sees a snowball leaning on the edge of
a path above him}

Meta: Vahn, look. The only way to get through is to get that ball of
snow up there to fall over.

{Noa makes her way across the path and reaches a lever on the wall}

Narration: The sign says, "Shield Control Panel." Do you wish to move
the lever?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Noa did not move the lever.
======================================================================

1) Yes

{The gate blocking Gala's path rises, enabling him to descend farther
into the Thunder Tunnel}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{As Gala runs through the tunnel he comes across the large snowball
that Vahn and Meta had noticed earlier}

Narration: If you roll this over the edge, it may fill the large gap in
Vahn's path. Do you wish to push the giant snowball over the edge?

*If Vahn has not reached the gap yet

*Narration: The snow is packed tight! It should roll over the edge with
just a slight shove! Do you wish to push the giant snowball over the
edge?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Gala did not move the snowball.
======================================================================

1) Yes

{Gala sends the snowball tumbling down which fills the gap blocking
Vahn's way}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn jumps over the gap and heads into the entrance of Koru's chamber.
He arrives at Koru's front side}

Meta: Vahn, this is Koru. This is where we must plant the bomb. But the
others don't seem to have reached their destinations. We must wait a
little while.

{Noa heads farther into the tunnel and arrives at the right end of
Koru's chamber}

Terra: We did it, Noa! This must be Koru! We have to wait until
everyone is in position.

{Gala finally reaches Koru's chamber at its left side}

Ozma: It looks like we're all in position by Koru!

Noa: What took you, Gala? The bombs! We have to push the buttons on the
bombs! Hurry!

***********************************
Scene Differences: Order of Arrival

*Depending on what order the Ra-Seru heroes reach Koru certain bits of
dialogue will be different.

bombs! Hurry!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala nod at each other and jump onto a separate ledge
below themtoset the TimeSpace Bombs}

Delilas Family: Wait!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala notice the Delilases}

Gi Delilas: The Mist is salvation! The Mist is eternal, perfect
harmony!

Lu Delilas: A millennium of Mist and followers is our goal! That is
what we promised Lord Zora!

Che Delilas: Swine! You are enemies of Lord Zora and therefore our
enemies. You shall die!

{Gi Delilas jumps down from the edge of the cliff with such speed that
a series of after images follows him}

Gi Delilas: I'm Gi Delilas, expert at fatal blows to a killing point on
my opponent's body!

{Gi Delilas strikes a ridiculous pose and lets out his blade}

{Lu Delilas does a back flip and a bolt of lightning flashes as she
appears next to Gi}

Lu Delilas: I am Lu Delilas! I strike with lightning speed!

{Lu Delilas strikes a ridiculous pose}

{Che Delilas lands next to his siblings, his massive weight causing the
ground to tremor}

Che Delilas: I am Che Delilas! Brute strength and chaos are what I am
about!

{Che Delilas smashes the ground with his hammer causing another tremor.
He strikes his ridiculous pose}

{The Delilas siblings once more strike their own ridiculous poses that
aredifferent ones from before}

Delilas Family: We are the Delilas Family!

Gi Delilas: We will never let you destroy Koru. He has been placed here
by Lord Zora!

{Gala facepalms and turns around}

Lu Delilas: Youngsters, when you play with fire, you get burned!

{Gala sees Noa across from him mimicking Lu Delilas' pose with a smile
on her face. Gala facepalms again and turns away from Noa}

Che Delilas: Aieee! This will be your final resting place!

{Gi jumps over to Vahn and Lu jumps over to Noa. Che Delilas turns
around and lumbers over to Gala. He strikes the ground with his hammer}

Che Delilas: Ha, ha, ha! Fight me! I will show you how strength is
used!

Narration: The battle against the Delilas siblings will now begin. This
match is three consecutive one-on-one battles! Before the battle,
prepare your three fighters: Vahn, Noa and Gala.

{Screen changes to inventory}

Narration: The battle will begin. Are you ready?

Che Delilas: H-How...How could this happen? Arrggh!

{Che Delilas falls off the ledge and into the pit of ice holding Koru}

Lu Delilas: Brother!

{Lu Delilas faces Noa. Noa turns around in the exact same pose as Lu,
continuing to imitate her movements}

Lu Delilas: You! Get over here, kid! I'm gonna send you to the next
world!

{Lu Delilas and Noa square off. Noa defeats Lu Delilas}

+End Boss Battle+

Lu Delilas: No! This can't be! How can I lose? I can't lose!

{Lu Delilas spins and falls over the ledge, landing in the pit of ice
to join her brother Che. Gi takes his eyes off his sister and looks at
Vahn menacingly}

Gi Delilas: I'll kill you for what you did to my brother and sister!

+================+
+Boss: Gi Delilas+
+================+

{Vahn fights with Gi Delilas and prevails against the elite assassin}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Gi Delilas: H-How humiliating...

{Gi Delilas falls backward into the pit below him. Vahn grins at Gala}

Gala: The dreadful Delilas Family! Alright, everyone! Let's set the
TimeSpace Bombs!

Noa: OK! I put my TimeSpace Bomb in place!

{Vahn and Gala set their TimeSpace Bombs}

Gala: I hope they explode after 3 seconds...Not sooner! All we can do
is press buttons and run like demons. Ready? Press on the count of 3!
Three! Two! One! The button is pressed! Now run! Run!

{Everyone runs toward the exit}

Noa: One!

{The TimeSpace Bombs explode. The strength of the blast causes Noa to
flip forward through the air and land outside the cave entrance}

Noa: Aaahh! Dr. Usha, you liar!
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Che Delilas is seen lying crippled, shrouded in darkness}

Che Delilas: (Silence) B-Brother...I'm a wreck. Help me, my brother!

{Gi Delilas, sprawled on the ground, answers Che}

Gi Delilas: Stop whimpering, Che. I-I'm right here. Where is Lu? Is she
alive?

{Lu Delilas comes limping into view with one hand over a chest wound}

Lu Delilas: I'm right here, my brother.

{The Delilas Family kneels on the ground, surrounding a near-dead Koru
covered in black smoke steaming out of its body}

Gi Delilas: Ha, ha, ha! So not even the Ra-Seru could finish us off!
Look! Koru is still alive! The thermal energy...The thermal energy he's
stored in his belly for so long...Let's release it!

Lu Delilas: Brother! Do you mean the three of us will merge with Koru?

Gi Delilas: Correct! Lu, is life that precious to you?

Lu Delilas: N-No! Of course not!

Che Delilas: Har, har, har! In doing so we lay waste to all of Karisto!
I like it!

Gi Delilas: Listen! We must use our remaining strength! Those Ra-Seru
will wish they'd never been born!

Lu Delilas: Uh!

Che Delilas: Arrgh!

{The Delilas Family limps over to the dying Koru. Gi Delilas raises his
hands in the air}

Gi Delilas: Koru, silent Seru! Make us one with your life...and your
fate!

{Koru starts to absorb the Delilas Family. As they merge with Koru it
begins to shine with light. Vahn, Noa and Gala rush back into the
chamber where they set the TimeSpace Bombs}

Noa: Ah, Vahn! The light is so bright! What's going on?!

Gala: Such a strange light! Noa, Vahn! Look! It's Koru! The light is
coming from Koru!

Noa: Huh? But we blew Koru up with the TimeSpace Bombs!

Meta: It seems the Delilases have merged with that Seru and commanded
it to self-destruct! If Koru blows up, everything between here and Sol
will be vaporized!

Noa: No!

Gala: How could this happen...Ozma, how can we stop them?

Ozma: I don't know, but since they are controlling Koru, perhaps if we
defeat them...

Terra: Whatever we do, we'd better do it quickly!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala nod and prepare to descend into the pit where Koru
waits}

Meta: We have to jump down to where Koru is! Are you ready!

1) Now wait a second!
2) I'm ready! Let's jump!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Now wait a second!

{Vahn steps back from the ledge}
======================================================================

2) I'm ready! Let's jump!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala jump into the pit and land in front of Koru}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gala: Delilas Family! Don't be stupid! Stop what you're doing!

Noa: Yeah! If Koru blows up, you guys will die, too!

Gi Delilas: Ha, ha, ha! We are all prepared for death!

Che Delilas: Once Karisto is flattened, Lord Zora will build the
kingdom of the Mist there!

Lu Delilas: If you want to fight us, come on over. We'll play with you
until the explosion comes.

Gala: That suits me just fine!

Ozma: Be careful, Gala! If we don't finish them quickly, we'll be
caught in the explosion!

+==========+
+Boss: Koru+
+==========+

{Vahn, Noa and Gala only have a short while before Koru self-destructs
and destroys Karisto Kingdom. Amazingly, they manage to defeat Koru in
time}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Noa: We defeated the Delilases! But what about Koru?

{Koru starts slowly breaking into shards}

Gala: Feel that warmth? It must be heat escaping from Koru!

{The heat from Koru rises into the air and starts to melt the ice
surrounding Nivora Ravine and Buma, clearing the path to Northern
Karisto}

Terra: Seru are inherently neither good nor evil.

Meta: Koru, too, became evil only because of the Mist.

Ozma: Seru merely amplify the strength of humans.

Terra: Whether a Seru does good or evil ultimately depends on the
person using it.

Noa: But Terra, you're a good Seru, right?

Terra: Hmm. We Ra-Seru are the way we are...because we have been in the
human world too long. Now, let's go back to Buma.

Noa: OK. The ice in Buma must be melted by now.

                                                                [a306]

{The Ra-Seru heroes exit Nivora Ravine and travel to the town of Buma.
As they enter the town they see that the ice has melted}

Noa: Woah! Hey! Vahn! Gala! I don't believe it! Buma isn't frozen
anymore!

Gala: You're right. I didn't know Buma was such a beautiful town.

{Noa runs over toward the Genesis Tree but notices that Vahn and Gala
are still standing where they were, so she heads back to get them}

Noa: Stop standing around! Come on, we've got to wake up the Genesis
Tree! I'll go ahead of you.

Gala: Ha ha ha! What an impatient girl! Come on, Vahn, let's go!

{Noa arrives at the foot of the Genesis Tree}

Noa: It's melting!

{Noa rushes over to the Genesis Tree on the left to examine it. She
turns around and calls out to Vahn and Gala}

Noa: The ice on the Genesis Tree is melting away!

Gala: It's just like Dr. Usha said.

Noa: Terra! Now we can wake up the Genesis Tree!

Terra: That's right. Since there are three Genesis Trees, let's split
up.

{They each walk over to a separate Genesis Tree: Vahn takes the middle,
Noa the left, and Gala the right}

Narration: Vahn reached out to gently touch the Genesis Tree's trunk.
He felt a gentle warmth in the palm of his hand.

Narration: Noa swiftly reached out to touch the Genesis Tree's trunk.
She felt a quiet power in the palm of her hand.

Narration: Gala reached out powerfully to touch the Genesis Tree's
trunk. He felt pure joy in the palm of his hand.

{The power from the Ra-Seru enters the Genesis Trees, clearing out the
Mist and turning the Seru monsters back into normal people}

Narration: With the power of the Genesis Tree, Meta's level increased
to Lv7. Terra's level increased to Lv6. Ozma's level increased to Lv5.

Gala: We did it, Vahn! All our hard work has paid off!

Noa: I'm so happy, Vahn! Terra feels stronger now.

Cara: Who would have thought the Genesis Tree had such powers!

Gala: Cara?

Noa: Cara?

{Cara walks toward the Ra-Seru heroes}

Cara: Well, excuse me, but I was watching you the whole time. It's
amazing. So the Genesis Tree of Buma had such powers after all. I
thought that it was too late for us to do anything.

Noa: Um, Cara...Can I have the Ra-Seru Egg that you have?

Gala: Now that Buma, your home, is back to normal, you don't need the
Ra-Seru Egg anymore!

Cara: Sorry, but I haven't got my "time" back yet. So please, just
leave me alone.

{Cara walks over to the center of the Genesis Trees and starts to dig
into the ground. Gala runs after her}

Gala: Cara! What are you doing?

Cara: I buried something here. That day, I buried my heart here.

{Gala faces Vahn and Noa and shrugs}

Gala: There's nothing we can do, Vahn. Let's leave Cara alone for now.

Noa: I didn't know you could bury your heart and still live. Oh, I just
don't get it!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala descend the small hills leading into the center of
the town when they notice three Soren flying in the air above them}

Noa: Vahn, Gala! Look! In the sky! It looks like Soren!

Gala: Humanlike bodies but with Seru Wings. Those are Soren, all right.
They must have found out about Buma's Genesis Tree. They've come to
take a look!

Noa: Hey, Soren! It's me, Noa! Over here!

Gala: Ha, ha, ha! Noa, you're too far! They can't hear you.

Noa: I wish the Soren would land over here.

Gala: Hey, that's a good idea. If we had their help...Then we could get
to the Floating Castle, where the Mist Generator is. We just have to
talk to those Soren.

{The Soren fly off into the distance}

Noa: The Soren! They're gone.

{Cara heads half way down the first set of stairs}

Noa: Hey! It's Cara! Cara, you're bleeding! Your hand is all bloody!

Gala: Cara, is that it? Is that what you buried in the ground?

Cara: Ha! Go ahead and laugh, if you think it's funny! You're right.
This is the only memory I have left. This is the music he...Grantes
wrote after hearing my song.

Noa: It must be love! That's great, Cara! That stands for your love! I
don't know much about love, but...Let me see that!

Cara: Uh...

Narration: Noa took the Music Score from Cara.

Noa: I'll take this music to Grantes for you. Leave it to me!

Cara: Well...thank you.

{Gala facepalms}

Gala: We don't really have time for that but...Oh well.

Cara: Please, do this for me! I'm sure that if Grantes hears that song,
he'll change his mind.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala travel all the way back to the city of Sol to find
Grantes still brooding in the bar at the Jazz Club}

Grantes: What is it? What do you want from me?

1) Cara waits for you in Buma!
2) Look at this sheet music!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Cara waits for you in Buma!

Grantes: That doesn't concern a kid like you.
======================================================================

2) Look at this sheet music!

Grantes: Sheet music? Sorry, I'm not a piano player. That doesn't
concern me.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala decide to give the sheet music to the Jazz Club's
pianist}

Pianist: A good tune, eh? If you have any requests, just bring me the
sheet music!

Noa: Here! Here's some music! Play this!

Narration: Noa gave the old sheet music to the piano player!

{The pianist looks over the sheet music}

Pianist: Hmm. This is so...so simple...Hmm.

Noa: Well? Are you going to play it or not?

Pianist: Alright, I'll play it! Jeez, what an impatient young girl!
Ahem!

{The pianist starts to play the tune from the sheet music. As the music
fills the air Grantes recognizes the tune and lifts his head up from
the bar}

Grantes: Cara...

{Noa rushes over to Grantes and pats him on the back}

Noa: Grantes! You know what? The Mist in Buma is all gone now.

{Grantes turns away from the bar and looks directly at Noa for the
first time}

Grantes: The Mist at Buma...The Mist is gone?!

{Vahn and Gala walk over to Grantes}

Gala: I know I'm young and inexperienced compared to you, but I'll tell
you this! Now I don't know what happened to you in the past. I don't
know whether you hurt the one you love...And you can turn your back on
your past and sit around despondent about the future...But I have no
respect for someone who tries to kill his own spirit like that!

Grantes: That...That song...Did Cara...?

Noa: That's right! Cara loves you, and...and she wants you to remember
that love.

Gala: Cara said that whatever happens, that love will always be true.

Grantes: Cara said that? I remember now. That's the melody she was
playing on my flute the first time I saw her. I came down to the
surface following that melody. That's when I found Cara. She was
playing the flute! I know I'm a horrible man. I didn't take
responsibility for the love I felt.

{Grantes faces Vahn for the first time}

Grantes: Cara...Do you think she'll forgive me?

1) Of course she will!
2) I don't know.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Of course she will!
2) I don't know.

Grantes: Sorry, fellas. I guess I'm still depending too much on others.
Now I realize that! You taught me a lesson. Now that the Mist is gone
from Buma...I'm going to go to Buma on my own two legs and tell Cara!
Tell her that it's never too late to change as long as the desire to
change is there! Maybe if I tell her that I am grateful - from the
bottom of my heart!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Grantes heads over to the exit of the Jazz Club}

Grantes: Maybe she would forgive me, and then...We'll be waiting for
you, both of us together, will be waiting in Buma!

{Grantes runs out the exit. Noa turns to Vahn}

Noa: It'll be OK, right? Cara will forgive Grantes, right?

Gala: Even with Grantes the way he is, love was still alive! A miracle
is sure to happen!

Noa: Wow, you're great! Gala, you know everything about love!

Gala: Uh, ahem, well...

{Gala covers his face with his hand as he blushes red with
embarrassment}

Gala: T-The teachings of Biron say "Strength begets love" and...Well...

Noa: Wow! You're great!

{The Ra-Seru heroes journey back to Buma to check up on Grantes and
Cara. The scene changes to the interior of Cara's house. Cara and
Grantes are facing each other in front of a burning fireplace}

Grantes: Cara. I'm so sorry, Cara. I...I...

Cara: It's alright, Grantes. Now that you're at my side, everything is
all right.

{Cara walks over to Grantes. They are about to kiss when Noa suddenly
walks into the room}

Noa: It's me, Noa! I'm here!

{They see Noa and quickly move away from each other}

Noa: Cara! Grantes! So, you made up, huh?

Grantes: A-Actually, I...We're just...

{Vahn and Gala enter the house}

Gala: Noa! Don't embarrass them!

Noa: What do you mean, Gala?

{Gala stares at Noa for a brief moment and then walks over to Cara and
Grantes, ignoring Noa's question and causing her to jump up and down in
frustration}

Gala: If you don't mind, I'd like to hear what happened.

Cara: I don't mind. Why don't you tell them, Grantes.

Grantes: I was...torn between my love for Cara and Soren law. It was
then that Zora, the master of the Floating Castle, appeared to me. Zora
said she would give Cara Seru Wings, if I helped her. Like a fool, I
believed her and stole this town's Ra-Seru Eggs. There were three Eggs.
I gave two to Zora. The remaining Egg I gave to Cara.

{Cara pulls out her Ra-Seru Egg}

Cara: That's this one here. He gave it to me and said it was a symbol
of our love.

Grantes: But of course Zora lied. Ha! She never gave me Seru Wings. I
escaped with my life, but my Soren people found out everything I did.
As punishement for breaking Soren law, they took my Seru Wings and
banished me to the surface. For ten years after that, as you know, I...

Noa: Grantes lived alone. Cara was alone, too. I understand!

Grantes: Yes, I was alone. But you saved me. At first I didn't want to
give up being Soren, but now I'm ready to live as a surface-dweller.
With Cara.

Cara: Oh, Grantes!

Noa: Love! That's love! I know it! Love is wonderful!

{Gala facepalms}

Gala: I hate to interrupt, but we have to see the Soren. Can you help
us?

Grantes: Ha, ha, ha! Alright, then. Here! I give you this.

Narration: Vahn now has the Soren Flute.

Grantes: This is a flute the Soren use to call for help. A surface-
dweller has no use for it. If you want to meet the Soren, go to the
summit of Mt. Dhini and play this flute. The Soren will think you're a
Soren and fly right over to you! Ha, ha, ha!

Cara: Also, I want to give this back to you.

Narration: Vahn now has the Light Egg.

Cara: This can't help me anymore.

Noa: Hooray! Grantes and Cara are good people after all. I love you
both!

{Noa blows Cara and Grantes a kiss}

Gala: Noa...We must get going.

{Noa tilts her head in curiousity}

Noa: Huh? Why?

Gala: We don't want to bother the two lovebirds, do we?

Noa: I don't really understand, but since you know about love, Gala,
I'll do what you say.

{Noa runs out of the room. Gala turns to Vahn and facepalms}

Gala: Hmm.

{Vahn and Gala walk out of the room}

******************************
Optional Event: Back at Cara's
******************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala reenter Cara's house}

Cara: I've been wondering all along... ...why my Ra-Seru Egg never
turned into a Ra-Seru like yours. What is it that you have but I don't,
I wondered. Now I finally understand. It's compassion. Compassion for
the troubled world...Compassion for life itself...Noa?

Noa: What, Cara?

Cara: There are different kinds of love. My love for Grantes is
important, but...Your compassion, and Vahn's and Gala's, is so much
deeper and stronger...It's much, much stronger than my silly love for
Grantes.

Noa: Do you really think so, Cara? Is my love really stronger and
deeper than yours?

{Cara nods and Noa jumps for joy}

Noa: Hooray! Gala and Vahn! It's love! That's what's important! Strong
love! Deep love! There's so much love everywhere!

Gala: Biron teaches that the sacred duty of the srong is ultimate love.

Noa: Strong love! Deep love! Ultimate love! Yes! Yes!

Cara: Ho, ho! Kid, you're really something.

{Vahn and Gala look at Cara}

Cara: My love may be silly but it's still precious, and that's enough
for me.

{Cara looks at Grantes by the windowsill and he nods to her}

Cara: I'm going to nurture that love, together with Grantes. Good luck.
I'll be praying for your success.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala leave}

Optional Event: The Woman's Story
*********************************

{Vahn and the others enter Buma's Inn and speak with a woman having a
meal at the table}

Woman: Maybe it was an illusion. Or maybe...Do you want to hear my
story?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Woman: So that Soren I saw was an illusion afterall.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Woman: Before the Floating Castle started spewing out Mist, I
saw...something.

{Vahn nods}

Woman: I saw a Soren flying from the east to the west. But there was
something funny about the way that Soren was flying. So I looked
closely, and I couldn't believe my eyes! That Soren was carrying a
child!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noa: That was Noa! I know! That was me! The Soren was carrying me!

Woman: Well, my goodness! So that was you? What a coincidence! So that
wasn't an illusion after all!

{Noa nods}

Noa: Vahn, let's find the Soren! They can take us to Conkram!

Noa's Final Dream
*****************

{Noa sits in the darkness as two white orbs glow in the distance}

Noa: Father? Mother?

Left Orb: Noa. I feel your presence so strongly. You're right near us.
But this will be the last time we can send you our words.

Right Orb: He...He has found us out.

Noa: Who has? Who are you talking about?

Left Orb: The man who brought the Mist into the world.

Right Orb: The man who invaded the realm of the gods by changing the
Seru and creating the Sim-Seru. His name...He is Cor...

{Both orbs disappear. Noa runs around in the darkness}

Noa: Father? Mother?

{A large blue orb manifests out of the darkness}

Voice: Ha, ha, ha, ha!

Noa: Who is that? Who's there?

Voice: Ha, ha, haaa! How desperate you are! Noa! Foolish Noa! I don't
need to give you my name! Ha! You and that idiot Ra-Seru can struggle
all you want! The more you struggle, the more I can taste your despair!

Noa: Bastard! What have you done to my mother? What have you done to my
father?

Voice: Listen well, and I shall tell you! If you have the power, come
to Conkram for yourself and see. Your parents are there!

Noa: Conkram!

{The orb disappears}

Noa: You bastard! Where did you go? Don't you run away from me! Are you
afraid of me? Fight me! I'll kick your butt!! {Noa runs through the
darkness} Faaaatherrr!!! Oh, Mother!!!

{The Ra-Seru heroes reach Mt. Dhini and walk up to the entrance. Two
gigantic stone wings are crossed, barring the path into the forest}

Narration: There is writing carved into the door of the gate. Mt.
Dhini, sacred land of Soren. None may climb Mt. Dhini without the mark
of the Soren.

Narration: The Soren flute inside the satchel suddenly began to shine.
I hear a voice from Birdman Gate! Mt. Dhini is open to those with the
mark of Soren!

{Birdman Gate opens its wings. Vahn, Noa and Gala make their way to the
summit}

Noa: Vahn, Gala! Look! The summit! Play the flute to call the Soren!

Gala: There's no Mist at the summit! The Soren can fly here on their
Seru Wings! Vahn, why odn't you play the Soren Flute you have with you?

Narration: Vahn took out the Soren Flute.

{Vahn plays a quick tune. Before long Noa notices Soren approaching}

Noa: Vahn, Gala! Look! It's the Soren! The Soren are coming!

{Three Soren start lowering and each land on a separate bird statue.
The Soren from earlier, Luctes, appears as well}

Luctes: What's going on? You are not Soren. Where did you get that
flute?

Noa: From Grantes! Grantes gave it to us!

Luctes: So, that traitor Grantes gave it to you. That doesn't surprise
me. This is the Soren's holy place. You earthbound humans must leave
here at once!

{Luctes faces the other Soren}

Luctes: Come! We are leaving!

Gala: What are you, allies of the Mist? Are you protecting the Mist?

{Luctes turns around and lands directly in front of Gala}

Luctes: How dare you! You can't insult the Soren like that!

Gala: Then are you prepared to fight the Mist and its allies?

Luctes: Of course we are! That is why we punished Grantes, for helping
build the Floating Castle. Many brave Soren have died trying to attack
the Floating Castle.

Noa: Then we should work together! We're on the same side!

Gala: We revived the Genesis Tree. The Mist is gone!

Luctes: Hmm...

Gala: Now we need the power of the Soren to destroy the Mist Generator
in the Floating Castle!

Luctes: !

{Luctes jumps in the air and speaks with the other Soren}

Narration: (Long Silence)

{Luctes turns to face the Soren farthest to his left}

Luctes: Yes, but still...

Narration: (Long Silence)

{Luctes nods to the Soren farthest to his right}

Luctes: Alright.

{Luctes lands in front of the Ra-Seru heroes}

Luctes: This is a decision I cannot make on my own. You shall come to
our camp and speak with our Elder! Is that agreeable?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Luctes: Hmmf! It makes no difference to me! {Luctes turns to the Soren}
Come! We're leaving!

Gala: W-Wait! Vahn! Knock it off! This is no time for jokes!

Luctes: If you're going to quarrel, do it somewhere else! Will you come
with us to our camp?

a. Yes
b. No

b. No

Gala: Vahn! What's the matter with you?! Do you know what you're
saying? Stop acting like that! Then why did you revive the Genesis
Trees in Sol and Buma? Don't you want to save the world from the Mist?
Or are you a great big coward now? All this time, we've looked upon you
as the leader. But now you're acting as if you're testing us. You upset
me!

Noa: Gala...

Gala: You shut up, Noa! I'm telling Vahn what I think!

Noa: But...

Luctes: I don't have time for this! Argue somewhere else! Well, how
about it? Will you come with us to our camp?

1) Yes
2) Yes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes
2) Yes

Luctes: Good! We're going to fly, so hold on tight! If you fall, you
die!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Luctes flies back into the air and speaks to the other Soren}

Luctes: Carry them gently! Gently, do you hear? I said G-E-N-T-L-Y!

{The three Soren maneuver in the air and one picks up Noa}

Noa: Wow! I'm flying! This is incredible!

{Gala is picked up next and then Vahn moments after}

Gala: Woooo! Yeah!

{The Soren fly west with Luctes leading the way}

{The heroes reach the Soren Camp with Luctes and the rest of the Soren}

Luctes: The Elder lives in the farthest house. Go speak to him.

{The Ra-Seru heroes head over the farthest house in the North where the
Soren Elder lives}

Cructes: Welcome, brave humans! We have already heard about your heroic
deeds! Most impressive! I now realize that you truly possess the
determination to save the world...

{Vahn nods in agreement. Cructes begins to pace the room}

Cructes: We've tried every tactic against that Floating Castle. But,
you, with the powers of your Ra-Seru, should be able to destroy it! I
have decided that the Soren should help you! Go speak to Luctes, in the
square. He will take you to the Floating Castle.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head back to Luctes}

Luctes: It seems that the Elder has given his permission. Now, then.
I'll take you to the Floating Castle!

2) No
1) Let's go!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Luctes: What? Do you need to go to the bathroom? Oh, you surface-
dwellers! Well, pull yourselves together and get ready quickly!
======================================================================

1) Let's go!

Luctes: Good! Now hold on tight!

{Luctes expands his Seru Wings and jumps into the air. He whistles for
two other Soren to help him as he picks up Vahn and the others carry
Noa and Gala}

{The Soren carry the Ra-Seru heroes to the front of the Floating
Castle}

Luctes: That's the Floating Castle! So many Soren warriors died
valiantly there... (Silence) Are you ready?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Luctes: Idiot! How can we turn back now?! We're going in!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Luctes: That's the spirit! I see you are ready for battle! We're going
in!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Luctes and his two partners land on the balcony connected to the
Floating Castle and drop off the Ra-Seru heroes}

Luctes: This is as far as our strength allows us to take you! We'll be
waiting here. If you succeed in destroying the Mist Generator, come
back here.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala run into the Floating Castle. They make their way
down the various paths until they reach a dead end. They notice an
opening in an air vent and travel through it to meet a Puera guarding a
lever on the other side}

Puera: Hey, you're new here. What happened? Did you accidentally shut
the emergency bulkhead? Hold on a second! I'll turn on the power and
open it. Hmm. Wait a minute! Zora didn't say anything about new people
coming. That means...You are those Ra-Seru-wearing foes! You son of
a...I'll teach you a lesson!

{The Puera attacks but is easily defeated by the Ra-Seru heroes}

Puera: Uh...Zooraaa...

{The Puera shatters, allowing the heroes to pull the lever and open the
emergency bulkhead. After traveling deeper into the castle, they finally
reach double doors with a sign on it reading "Throne Room". Two Puera
guarding it attack}

+Mini-Boss: Puera x2+

Narration: The lever is pointing down. Do you wish to move the lever
up?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Narration: Vahn did not move the lever.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Narration: Vahn moved the lever up!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{After the Ra-Seru heroes pull both levers the doors open and they run
up to the throne}

Noa: Vahn! I can hear it! That's the sound of the Mist Generator!

1) Yes, I hear it, too!
2) I don't hear anything!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes, I hear it, too!

Noa: But she's not here - Zora, the one who deceived Grantes. I thought
she would be here...
======================================================================

2) I don't hear anything

Noa: Vahn...that TimeSpace Bomb must have done something to your ears.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gala: You're right. This is the castle lord's room, but where's Zora...

Noa: I wanted to defeat her and get back the Ra-Seru Egg...

{The scene changes to the Soren waiting on the balcony outside. A Soren
leaning over the edge of the balcony jumps down, racing toward Luctes}

Soren: Luctes! Something is coming this way!

Luctes: ! This is bad! Everyone hide! Don't let him see you!

{The Soren fly off and soon a female with wings walks into the entrance
of the Floating Castle. The Soren jump back onto the balcony once it is
clear that she is out of sight}

Soren: Why? Why won't you fight him?

Luctes: I know how you must feel, but...Our mission is to wait for
those three to return.

{The scene changes back to the Ra-Seru heroes in the Throne Room}

Noa: Vahn, it doesn't look like bad Zora is here. Since she's not here,
let's destroy the Mist Generator.

{They walk over to the door behind the throne and try to open the door}

Narration: The door to the Mist Generator is locked.

Gala: Blast it! And the Mist Generator is just beyond here!

1) Let's look for the key!
2) Let's look for Zora!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Let's look for the key!

Noa: Good idea! I'll bet the key is around here somewhere!
======================================================================

2) Let's look for Zora!

Noa: Good idea! Let's get the egg back from Zora!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{As Vahn, Noa and Gala search the room the winged woman walks in}

Winged Woman: Ha, ha, ha! Welcome to my castle, Ra-Seru heroes!

Noa: Zora! Are you Zora?

Zora: And what if I am?

Noa: Give me back the Ra-Seru Egg you tricked Grantes out of!

Zora: Oh, little Noa! You are just as silly as I heard! Ha, ha, ha! I
am loved and protected by Cort. Surely you didn't expect me to just
hand you the Ra-Seru Egg!

Noa: Boo-hoo!

Zora: But don't worry - I will fight you. If you win, I will tell you
where the Ra-Seru Egg is.

+==========+
+Boss: Zora+

{Zora attacks the Ra-Seru heroes but is defeated by them}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Zora: That's odd. How could I lose?

Noa: Zora! Tell me where the Ra-Seru Egg is!

Zora: You silly fool, Noa...I used...the Ra-Seru Egg...long ago...as an
important component of the Mist Generator...

Gala: What? The Ra-Seru Egg is a component in the Mist Generators?
Ozma? What does this mean?

Ozma: What Zora says is correct. Mist Generators use both Ra-Seru and
Ra-Seru Eggs...

Noa: Terra, why didn't you tell me before?!

Terra: I'm sorry, Noa. I was afraid you might get the wrong idea...that
the Ra-Seru are creating the Mist.

Songi: Sorry to interrupt your little discussion.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala turn around to se Songi standing in front of the
throne overlooking them}

Songi: That woman just can't keep a secret, can she?

Noa: Songi! So you came to help Zora, eh?

Songi: Sorry, but I'm not interested in someone more than twice my age.

{Songi struts over to the locked door blocking the way to the Mist
Generator}

Songi: Ha! What good is this puny lock going to do...

{Songi shatters the door open with an energy blast}

Songi: Sorry, but I've got business with the Mist Generator.

{The Ra-Seru heroes run over to Songi}

Gala: What? What do you want with the Mist Generator?

Songi: Ha, ha, ha!

{Songi heads into the Mist Generator room}

Gala: Vahn, let's follow Songi!

{Vahn and Noa nod and enter the room Songi entered. The Mist Generator
begin to crumble and fall into pieces before their eyes}

Noa: Somebody else destroyed the Mist Generator...

Gala: Could it be Songi? Could he have destroyed the Mist Generator?

Songi: You are indeed correct! Ha, ha!

{Songi rises from the darkness below on his floating platform}

Songi: I destroyed the Mist Generator for you. Gala, you're not that
dumb after all.

Gala: Why? Why would you destroy the Mist Generator?

{Songi does his usual arrogant spit}

Songi: Oh, you are too much! The musclebound oaf is still as dumb as
ever! I'll tell you why I did it. The whole Floating Castle was just a
trap to lure you in and kill you. The Floating Castle's Mist Generator
was just a piece of junk! Even its Mist was no good! I was going to
destroy it and you with it after you finished off Zora.

Zora: W-What! What do you mean?

{Zora appears halfway down the stairs, appearing to have crawled her
way there. The Ra-Seru heroes turn to face her, prepared in their
battle stances}

Songi: Zora! You're still alive!

Zora: C-Cort tried to kill me...?

Songi: That's right. He used you as bait for that very important trap.
Not even Cort would expect you to defeat the Ra-Seru!

Zora: But...Cort loved me...He said he loved me.

{Songi charges up an energy blast and fires it at Zora, disintegrating
her into millions of tiny shards}

Songi: Cort said he hates pesky women, and hates bossy women like you
even more! If this meddlesome woman hadn't opened her big mouth...you
would have fell into the trap, and I wouldn't have had to destroy the
Mist Generator!

Noa: Songi! What "trap"? What do you mean?

Songi: Ha, ha, ha! Stupid, simple-minded barbarian girl! Use your
little brain and think! This Castle used the Mist Generator's energy to
float. Here's a tough question. What happens to the Floating Castle
when the Mist Generator is gone?

{Right on cue the Floating Castle beings to tilt and shake. It starts
descending rapidly toward the ground below}

Noa: Vahn, it's going to fall! The Floating Castle is going to fall!

Songi: Congratulations, you answered correctly! Your prize is a rapid
free-fall to the surface!

Gala: Songi, wait! If the Floating Castle was a trap for us...Then
where's the Mist Generator creating the Mist in Karisto Kingdom?

Songi: Gala, you are a hopeless dimwit! Instead of the Mist, you should
be worried about your own life! Only six minutes till impact! Bye! Have
a nice trip! See you next "fall". Ha, ha!

{Songi disappears back into his portal. Vahn and the others rush back
from where they came and reach the balcony but the Soren cannot be found}

Noa: They're gone! Luctes and all the Soren are gone!

Gala: They must have sought shelter somewhere.

Noa: What are we going to do? We got away, but we'll all die if we
don't do something!

{Gala gets down on one knee and looks at the floor}

Gala: Is it my destiny to die now?

{The force of the fall causes the walkway connecting the balcony with
the rest of the castle to tear apart. The balcony tips steeply
downward. Noa tumbles to the other side and rises into the air,
flapping her arms as she falls. Vahn rushes toward the edge of the
tipping balcony to try and reach her and Gala tries running toward the
upper end of the balcony to prevent from tumbling over the other side}

Luctes: I'm sorry!

{Luctes and the two other Soren rush in and grab the Ra-Seru heroes
before the Floating Castle plunges into the ocean below}

Noa: I thought we were going to die.

Luctes: I apologize. We had to get away from the Seru monsters, and so
we were watching from the air.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{The scene changes to the Ra-Seru heroes and Luctes speaking with the
Soren Elder, Cructes}

Cructes: How horrifying...The Mist's henchmen were using a Ra-Seru to
create the Mist.

Meta: The Mist Generator is a machine that uses Ra-Seru as a catalyst
to make the Mist.

Ozma: A Ra-Seru also has the power to take the life of other Ra-Seru.
So far we have destroyed Mist Generators by killing the Ra-Seru sealed
inside.

Gala: It must've been painful to kill a fellow Ra-Seru, even if to
destroy the Mist Generators.

Noa: Terra, I'm so sorry. I didn't realize why you were so sad.

Terra: There was nothing else to do. But I am sure the Ra-Seru who died
with the Mist Generators...are better off dead than living to serve
evil.

Gala: It was a bittersweet victory. Even so...Songi said that the
Floating Castle was merely a trap. If that's true, then where is the
Mist in Karisto Kingdom coming from?

{Cructes steps forward and looks at each of the Ra-Seru heroes}

Cructes: I can't understand what the Ra-Seru are saying to you. But, if
you are discussing Gala's question, I have already investigated that.
Having now learned that the Floating Castle's Mist Generator is
powerless...I ordered a reconnaissance team to find the Mist Generator
generating the Mist over Karisto. They found it in the mountains of
North Karisto! If only we could destroy it now. All of Legaia would be
free of the Mist forever! The Mist Generator is near Conkram, which
once fought a war with Sol. In Conkram, you may also find out about
Noa's parents, as well. It is the Soren's duty to take you there! This
I have already ordered Luctes to do.

{Luctes nods and heads out the door}

Cructes: You should leave for Conkram as soon as you are ready.

Noa: Vahn, did you hear that? Conkram! We're going to Conkram! I
finally get to go to Conkram, where my mother and father are!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head over to the square of the Soren Camp and
regroup with Luctes. He looks at all of them one at a time}

Luctes: Vahn, Noa. And you, too, Gala. Please excuse my past rudeness.
I had lost my pride as a Soren. I was bitter. I was a fool. But you,
heroes of Ra-Seru, you opened my eyes. Thank you! I am grateful - from
the bottom of my heart!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala indicate that they accept Luctes' apology}

Luctes: It's almost time. Now, shall we head for Conkram, in the North
Karisto Mountains?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Luctes: Very well. Call on me again when you are ready.
======================================================================

1) Yes

{Luctes extends his Seru Wings}

Luctes: Because of the thick Mist there, you'll have to parachute in.
Here, take this!

Narration: Vahn now has the Door of Wind.

Luctes: The Door of Wind is the only way to get back. Use it well!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Luctes carries Vahn, Noa and Gala to Northern Karisto and sends them
in front of Conkram by use of a parachute}

living Seru shaped like a clam. The people and buildings are completely
assimilated with the Seru}

Noa: Father...Mother...I'm here. I finally made it to Conkram!

Gala: This is Conkram? What a horrible place! Look at this evil,
everyone! This is not the work of humans!

{Noa runs forward and looks around}

Noa: !

Gala: What's the matter?

Noa: I hear a voice! Someone's still alive! They're calling for help!

Gala: A human voice?

Voice: H-Help...

{Vahn, Noa and Gala turn to see a man attached to a broken down pillar
whose organs are fused with the Sim-Seru town}

Gala: Good lord! There are people inside these walls! Hey! Are you
alright?

Man: (Silence) Help...Somebody...Help...

{Noa rushes over to him and pulls on his left arm trying to pry him out
of the wall}

Noa: Arrggh!

Terra: Noa! Stop it! Noa! If you pull that person out of the wall,
he'll die!

{Noa lets go and backs away}

Noa: But...

Terra: Everything here - buildings, people - is all part of a giant
Seru! A Sim-Seru! Noa, that person's body has fused with the Seru. We
must leave them as they are. There's nothing we can do.

Gala: A Sim-Seru? You mean the town itself is a type of Seru?

Ozma: I never knew that humans had built such a huge Sim-Seru...The
thick Mist from the Mist Generator to the north must have enabled it to
grow so large.

Noa: (Silence) I'm so sorry. But I'll destroy the Mist! Just hang on a
little longer!

Gala: Noa! There's a castle over there! Let's go investigate! Your
parents may be there.

Noa: Y-Yes, you're right.

{Noa looks at the man fused with the pillar once more before they walk
over to the palace. Noa looks around nervously}

Gala: What's wrong, Noa?

Noa: I...I know this place! Vahn! Gala! I'm scared! I don't know why,
but I'm scared...So scared!

Gala: Noa, remember this! Whatever happens here...We won't abandon you!
Vahn and I will always be by your side!

Noa: O-Okay. Vahn! Gala! Remember you promised! Remember you promised
never to leave me alone!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala walk to the end of the grand hall until they reach
the throne room. In the center of the room lies a large mass of organs
in the shape of an unbloomed flower. They hear a voice}

Voice: Noa...I feel your presence, Noa...I know you're there...

Noa:  Mother...It's my mother!

{The pile of organs starts to peel open, revealing Noa's mother. She is
surrounded by flames}

Queen Minea: Noa, I...was waiting...for you...so long! Noa,
Come...here...Let me...feel you.

{The Ra-Seru heroes walk closer. Noa kneels down in front of her
mother}

Noa: Mother...

Queen Minea: Noa, I hear you...I feel...your warmth. You're so big
now...

Noa: Mother! What's the matter with your eyes? Can't you see?

Queen Minea: I've been blinded by the thick Mist and the Sim-Seru that
surrounds the town. But I can hear your words and sense your presence.
It's my feelings for you that have kept me sane.

Noa: What should I do? Mother, how can I help you?

Queen Minea: (Silence) Do you all know that Jette's Absolute Fortress
houses the last Mist Generator?

2) No
1) Yes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Queen Minea: The Sim-Seru that surrounds the town feeds on the Mist
from the Absolute Fortress. As you know, a Sim-Seru dies when its Mist
Generator is destroyed.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Queen Minea: So this Sim-Seru should die if you destroy the fortress'
Mist Generator.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Queen Minea: But...The Gate of Hell is made of an ancient substance and
cannot easily be forced open. To break open the Gate of Hell guarding
the fortress, you need the Nemesis Gem.

Noa: Where is it? Tell me, and I'll bring it here!

Queen Minea: They are gone. There are no more Nemesis Gems anywhere on
earth.

Gala: Your Majesty, that means...

Queen Minea: However, if you travel back to the Conkram of the past you
will find the Nemesis Gem. Noa!

Noa: Yes?

Queen Minea: Go to your father! He is in the caverns under the palace.
Get the Seru Flame from him!

Noa: The Seru...Flame?

Queen Minea: The Seru Flame has the energy to transport you back to the
past!

Noa: Okay. I'll go to Father. I'll get the Seru Flame! I'll get it, so
don't give up hope!

Queen Minea: Noa, you are my daughter. I know you can do it. Vahn,
Gala. Please look after Noa for me.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala run back down the staircases and into the grand
hall where two guards block the way into the underground laboratory}

Guards: So you have the Queen's permission? Well then, you may pass.

{The organs holding the guards splits right down the middle and parts
to the sides. Vahn, Noa and Gala travel the winding stairs to the
underground laboratory where they see King Nebular fused in the center
of the room, surrounded by a transparent, moving dome}

Noa: Father...Father, it's me! I'm here, Father! I came to see you.

King Nebular: Noa...Am I dreaming?

Noa: No, you're not! It's me, Noa! I'm really here!

King Nebular: It's really you...If only my eyes...could see...Then I
could...look upon you...I knew...you would...come here... (Silence)

Noa: Father, what's wrong? Father! Are you alright?

King Nebular: I'm sorry, Noa. It's so difficult...just to...stay sane.
I know why...you're here. You need the Seru Flame to travel into the
past. The Queen...sent me...her thoughts. The Seru Flame...is here.
Take it. Use it...Use it...in the Room of Mirrors. Its power...will
transcend the vortex of time...and take you...to the past...

{Vahn grabs the Seru Flame}

Narration: Vahn now has the Seru Flame!

Gala: So this is the Seru Flame. It's a small lamp.

Noa: Father...

King Nebular: Go, Noa. I'm so ashamed...for my own daughter...to see me
like this. Go now. Go, I say.

Noa: Just hold on, Father. I'll go to the past and bring back the
Nemesis Gem. I'll use it to destroy the Mist!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala make their way back up through the caverns and into
the Room of Mirrors. A large lamp is set on either side of the large
mirror in front of the Ra-Seru heroes}

Noa: Vahn! Over here! Put the Seru Flame here!

{Vahn uses the Seru Flame to light the lamps. A flash of bright light
envelops the room and the reflection in the mirror changes. No longer
do they see their own reflection but rather an empty room with floors
of bright white marble and clean walls}

Gala: Vahn, look! That mirror is the door to the past. So that's it.
It's time to go to the past!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala walk through the other side of the mirror and end
up in a vortex}

Terra: Noa, listen! In the world of the past, you will meet your
parents when they were young. But no matter what happens, you must
never tell them you you are, or what will happen in the future...Do you
understand? This is very important. If you do, you will only create
chaos that will benefit the Mist and its allies.

{They reach Conkram of the Past as they walk through the other side of
the mirror. The Seru Flames go out}

Gala: That was easier than I thought. So this is the Conkram of the
past.

Noa: Quick! Let's find the Nemesis Gem!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala explore the palace grounds and meet old foes: Zeto,
Dohati, Zora and The Delilas Family and. All of them have positions in
the palace. Zeto is the Secretary of State, Dohati the Secretary of
Interior, The Delilas Family are Royal Bodyguards and Zora is the High
Priestess. They learn that a grand demonstration is to be held the next
day as a new weapon is unveiled that will finally make Conkram defeat
Sol in the long war between them. They decide to rest at the town inn
for the night}

Innkeeper: Well, well. You want a room at this hour? A room usually
costs 10,000G per night...But since tomorrow's a special day, I'll tell
you what. All of you can stay for free! Do you want to stay?

Innkeeper: Oh. Well, I guess you want to enjoy the festivities. Come
back when you're tired.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Innkeeper: By morning, the display of the new weapon will start. Is all
your business finished?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Innkeeper: Oh. Well, I guess you want to enjoy the festivities. Come
back when you're tired.
======================================================================

a. Yes

Innkeeper: Good. Show these three to their room!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noa (Off-Screen): Wake up, everyone! The demonstration of the new
weapon is about to begin!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala exit the Inn and enter the towns square where
everyone has gathered}

King Nebular: My son, Prince Cort, has at last completed his new
weapon. Cort calls it the Mist. I hereby present this new weapon to the
people of Conkram!

{Guards in the town square escort a soldier up the steps into a large
transparent cylinder}

Zeto (Off-Screen): The Mist is a special gas that makes the Seru many
times more powerful.

{The screen changes and Zeto is now at the front of the balcony raising
his hands in the air}

Zeto: Prince Cort and Jette, in the lab under the castle, will now open
the door to the Seru world. Using an elixir from the home of the Seru,
we have created a new substance. That substance is the Mist. A new
weapon that amplifies the power of our Seru. When released into this
cylinder, the Mist will turn the soldiers into mighty warriors!

{A warrior walks over to Zeto and whispers in his ear before taking his
leave}

Zeto: Gentlemen! From his laboratory, Prince Cort says he is ready!

{The scene changes to the underground laboratory of Conkram's Royal
Palace. Prince Cort orders Jette to activate the Mist Generator, which
causes Mist to spin out from a hole that opens up at the bottom of the
machine and travel into a tube that leads all the way into the cylinder
in the middle of Conkram's town square}

Zeto (Off-Screen): Look well at the power of Conkram's new weapon, the
Mist. The pride of Conkram!

Gala: I don't believe it! They're going to use the Mist as a weapon of
war!

Noa: Vahn...I don't like this! That person has gone mad!

{The scene changes back to the underground laboratory. The Mist
Generator begins to rumble and a large amount of Mist starts pouring
out of the opening all at once}

Cort: It's out of control! We used too much Mist. Turn it off now!
Quickly!

{Jette starts pressing a number of buttons on a device attached to the
Mist Generator}

Jette: I can't, Prince Cort! The emergency shutoff switch isn't
working. If we don't do something it'll explode!

{The Mist Generator explodes causing Mist to flow uncontrollably into
the cylinder within Conkram's town square. The soldier within the
cylinder turns into a Seru monster and breaks out of it. A guard tries
to repel him but is knocked down and starts to get torn apart as some
townspeople run into their homes and lock the doors while others start
to get killed by Seru}

Gala: I knew something like this would happen. The Mist just can't be
controlled by humans!

Noa: Listen, everyone! To the underground. Quickly! We must turn off
the Mist! Let's go to the laboratory and turn off the Mist!

{The Ra-Seru heroes turn to look athe broken down cylinder and the many
Seru monsters in front of them}

Gala: You're right, Noa! We can't desert the people of Conkram like
this!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala rush to the underground laboratory and see a large
hole with Mist spilling out of it}

Terra: What a mess you got me into.

Gala: There are things that look like Ra-Seru Eggs coming out of that
hole.

Noa: Terra, what's going on? Why are Ra-Seru Eggs coming out of that
hole?

Terra: That hole leads to the sealed Rogue's Tower, on the frontier of
Seru-kai. Those are alter egos of Rogues, rebel Ra-Seru. They have the
same properties as Ra-Seru Eggs.

Meta: The Mist Generator here is a primitive one. With our strength, we
may stop it temporarily, but unless we cut off the flor of that
material...The Mist Generator can't be shut off completely.

Gala: In other words, we have to cut off the source.

Ozma: We must destroy Rogue's Tower! That will stop that flow, and stop
the Mist!

Noa: Rogue's Tower...

Terra: The Rogues are evil Ra-Seru who plotted a rebellion against Tieg
a thousand years ago.

Gala: There's only one thing to do, Vahn! We must destroy the head
Rogue in Rogue's Tower! We can't destroy the Mist of the future unless
we destroy the Mist here!

Meta: You must be careful. We can't return here unless we defeat the
Rogues.

Ozma: And one more thing...Before you go to Rogue's Tower, make sure
you are fully prepared for battle.

{The Ra-Seru heroes prepare themselves and get ready to jump into the
vortex leading to Rogue's Tower}

Narration: Do you wish to jump into the vortex and go to Rogue's Tower?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

{Vahn shakes his head "no" and turns around}
======================================================================

1) Yes

{The Ra-Seru heroes jump into the vortex and start falling down a
lengthy portal leading to Rogue's Tower}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noa: Oh! Look!

{A sparkling shard whirs passed them}

Noa: It's a piece of a Rogue.

Terra: That's right. It's a Rogue Fragment.

Gala: So that has the same power as a Ra-Seru? I guess I still have a
lot to learn about Seru.

Ozma: The Seru-kai is a world beyond human comprehension.

Noa: Is Rogue's Tower in the Seru-kai? What kind of place is it?

Terra: Rogue's Tower is part of Seru-kai, but the tower itself is the
body of a Rogue.

Meta: The Rogues were once Ra-Seru and they can hear what we say.

Ozma: That's why we can't say anything more.

Noa: But...

Terra: Don't worry. Instead of talking, I'll concentrate on protecting
you from Rogue's evil.

                                                                [a312]

{The Ra-Seru heroes leave the portal and step in a strange castle. Each
floor within the tower holds a blue insignia on the ground that
teleports them into a new room. They use these portals to navigate
Rogue's Tower. The Ra-Seru heroes defeat some Rogues who attack them
and eventually step on a giant insignia on the ground that warps them
to a large hall. They walk farther into the room}

Noa: Terra, is this the place? Is the Rogue here?

Terra: (Silence)

Noa: Oh, I understand. You can't talk now.

Gala: Where could that head Rogue be? I sense the presence of evil, but
the Rogue is nowhere to be seen!

{Suddenly a portal opens in the ground in front of them and a large
bunch of crystals rises out of it. The blue crystals begin to spin and
one of them collides with Noa, knocking her into the ground}

Noa: Aaaahh!

{Noa gets back up}

Gala: I-It's the Rogue!

{All of the crystals begin to move again and then stop once more}

Gala: This is the head Rogue, the one sealed in the Tower! If we defeat
this one, the Mist in Conkram will disappear.

Noa: Let's get him! Let's teach this Rogue a lesson!

+Boss: Rogue+

Attacks: Element Change, Rogue Flame, Rogue Wind, Rogue Thunder

{With their combined assault on the Rogue, Vahn and the othersdefeat

+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

Noa: We did it! We defeated the Rogue!

{The Tower begins to shake and the Rogue shatters into pieces. The
shaking stops}

Gala: Now we can destroy Rogue's Tower!

{The Tower starts to quake and pieces of the celing begin to crumble
and fall around the Ra-Seru heroes}

Noa: Oh, wow! Look! Rogue's Tower is breaking apart! Gala, can I ask
you something?

Gala: What is it, Noa?

Noa: Now how do we get back to Conkram from here?

Gala: ! The exit...

{The Ra-Seru heroes turn toward the exit but everything beyond them is
pitch black}

Noa: Are we going to die? Are we going to die when Rogue's Tower
collapses?

Gala: I'm not going to die in a place like this! Ozma! Can you hear me?

Ozma: Of course I can, Gala!

Gala: Ozma...

Ozma: I've been watching you the whole time! Well done, Gala!

Terra: Now that the Rogue is dead, the Mist must be gone from Conkram
by now.

Noa: Terra!

Meta: Come, it's time to return to the human world.

Ozma: Gather together, everyone! We're almost out of time!

Terra: OK, here we go!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala begin to glow with the power of their Ra-Seru and
rise into the air, soaring toward a bright light in the darkness above
them. They enter the light and the screen goes black}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{The scene changes to the inside of the underground laboratory where
King Neblar is standing angrily in front of Prince Cort and Zora. Jette
stands still at the other side of King Nebular}

King Nebular: Cort! Fortunately, the Mist has stopped. That is good.

{King Nebular shoves Cort who still has his head hung as he is being
reprimanded}

King Nebular: However, the Mist has claimed many lives. What do you
think you are doing?

Cort: But, father! The Mist is...

Jette:
Your majesty, this is all a simple mistake. Yes, the experiment was
successful, but...

{King Nebular turns around and pushes Jette}

King Nebular: A mistake?! Fool! Does a simple "mistake" take people's
lives?

{The pit once leading to Rogue's Tower begins to rumble, causing
everyone to look at it in alarm}

King Nebular: ?

{Vahn, Noa and Gala jump out of the hole and land in front of everyone}

King Nebular: Who...are you?

Noa: I'm Noa! Don't you recognize me? It's me, Noa!

King Nebular: Noa?

{Gala steps in front of Noa}

Gala: Your majesty! You must believe us! We have just been to the Seru
world and cut off the source of the Mist!

King Nebular: Is that so? Fantastic! Now I understand everything! You
have my deepest gratitude. The people of Conkram owe you their lives! I
wish to hear more. Let's go to the surface for a long chat. Let's go!

{Noa runs after King Nebular, who stop at the exit to look at Cort once
more}

King Nebular: Hmm? Cort, that thing on your back...You're wearing a
Seru! It matters not. Cort! Jette! Zora! All of you remain there and
repent for what you have done!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala follow King Nebular back to the throne room of the
palace. Zora runs in front of Prince Cort}

Zora: Prince Cort! His Majesty doesn't understand at all. He doesn't
understand the Mist's possibilities, or your grand plan!

Cort: I know, Zora. Just forget about it. Besides, I still have time to
get a lot done.

Jette: Ha, ha, ha! You are quite right! Quite right!

{The screen cuts to black}

King Nebular (Off-Screen): These three brave warriors have saved
Conkram from danger.

{The screen clears and the Ra-Seru heroes are standing in front of King
Nebular, Prince Cort and the Royal Family's advisors are standing in
two rows behind them}

King Nebular: In reward for this, they desire the Nemesis Gem. Nemesis
Gems are byproducts of the Gate of Hell's construction. They are
refuse. It pains me to give these three such things as a reward,
but...If that is what they desire, then so be it. Such dignity! I am
therefore going to give them...

{Cort interrupts his father and raises his hand in protest}

Cort: Father!

{Cort walks between the two rows of advisors}

Cort: I beseech you! Do not give them the Nemesis Gem!

King Nebular: Silence, Cort! This is my decision!

{Cort drops to one knee}

King Nebular: Vahn! Come here.

(Vahn now has the Nemesis Gem!)

King Nebular: All of you, you have my gratitude!

{Cort rises and begins to walk out of the throne room. He stops at the
end of the throne room and turns around to take a last look at his
father. He turns around again, shakes his head and struts out of the
room. Jette, Zora, Dohati and Zeto follow Prince Cort. The Ra-Seru
heroes take their leave}

***********************************
Optional Event: A Test of Willpower
***********************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala enter the Queen's chamber and find her on the
balcony}

Queen Minea: This is my favorite place in all of Conkram.

{She turns to look at the Ra-Seru heroes}

Queen Minea: Vahn, Noa, Gala, thank you very much. Thanks to you my
unborn child is safe and sound.

{Noa's eyes start to fill with tears}

Noa: I'm Noa. That's Noa. Moth...

{Noa begins to walk toward the Queen but Gala walks in front of her and
blocks her way}

Gala: Noa, no! Don't!

Terra: Noa, have you forgotten?

Noa: But Terra! That's my mother! My mother!

Terra: You must never say who you are or what will happen in the
future. If you do, you will just create chaos that will benefit the
Mist and its allies.

{Noa crouches on the floor and looks down at the ground}

Noa: But...

Terra: Noa, now that you are grown, you must understand. Correct?

Noa: Chaos? Benefit the Mist's allies?

{Noa gets up from the floor}

Noa: You're right. I'll do what I have to. Even if I don't like it.

Queen Minea: To whom do you speak?

Gala: Pardon me, your majesty. Noa says that you look just like her
mother.

Queen Minea: Oh, I see! Noa, I hope to have a daughter like you. I'll
give you this, so that you may always remember me.

(Noa now has Minea's Ring.)

Queen Minea: (Silence) Actually, I was here praying for my son, Cort.
Cort has changed completely. He has always been zealous about his
research, but...Since becoming involved in the Mist, he seems like a
completely different person. I believe that you brave warriors have
been sent to me by god. Please, if something happens to Cort, you must
save him. You can save Cort. I'm sure of it.

{Vahn and Gala prepare to leave. Noa looks at her mother a few moments
longer before joining the others}

******************
End Optional Event
******************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala head back into the Room of Mirrors}

Gala: Vahn, are we going back to our time?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Gala: Well, it would be a good idea to speak with the people here.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Gala: Good.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn lights the lamps at the sides of the large mirror}

Noa: (Silence)

{Noa turns away from the mirror}

Gala: Noa, what's wrong?

Noa: Cort is my older brother.

Gala: (Silence) Let's go back to the future, Noa. Your parents are
waiting for you.

Noa: O-Okay. You're right...Let's go back to the future.

{Noa enters the mirror. Gala takes a look at Vahn and nods before both
of them head into the mirror after her}

Jette (Off-Screen): Prince Cort, if a Mist specimen is what you need,
then we have this.

{The scene changes to Prince Cort, Jette and Zora huddled together
within the underground laboratory}

Cort: That's right! By analyzing this, I can make my own Mist!

Jette: You will require a device of some size.

Cort: I don't care! We'll build a Mist Generator in the Absolute
Fortress! We'll conquer the world!

Zora: Ratayu has giant Seru and the legend of Juggernaut...

Cort: Mist technology and Juggernaut...What an interesting combination!

Zora: Prince Cort, there is no end to your dreams! Ha, ha, ha!

{They all start laughing maniacally}

Cort: Ha, ha, ha! Listen well. This is an order. An O-R-D-E-R.

{The scene changes to the grand hall of Conkram's palace. Guards can be
seen patrolling the area. As the camera rises a large clam-shaped
object is seen sitting on top of a new pedestal in the center of the
room. The shell slowly opens up and reveals pulsating innards}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Noa walks out of the mirror followed by Gala and Vahn. The flames go
out and the mirror returns to normal. They exit the Room of Mirrors and
walk over to Queen Minea}

Noa: (Silence)

Queen Minea: Noa, you heard me. Cort is my son. And he's your brother.
After that incident, two Seru remained in Conkram. One was transformed
into the Sim-Seru, which fed on the Mist and engulfed Conkram. The
other Seru...may be a fragment of an evil Rogue. That Seru can give
humans incredible knowledge. It was that power that awakened Cort's
wicked ambitions. With Ra-Seru and Ra-Seru Eggs, he created a Mist
Generator and the Sim-Seru. He learned to create Sim-Seru to provide
him with the power to achieve his ambitions. By the time we realized
what Cort was doing, it was already too late. We feel so responsible...

Noa: It's not your fault, Mother! I'm going to shut down the Mist
Generator in the Absolute Fortress for good! After that, you won't have
to be alone anymore, Mother!

Queen Minea: Noa, I love you.

Noa: Love...Yes, love. I know about love. Mother, don't give up!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala leave Conkram and journey north toward Jette's
Absolute Fortress, which houses the final Mist Generator}

{The Ra-Seru heroes reach Jette's Absolute Fortress. The Gate of Hell
blocks the way into the Fortress}

Gala: So this is the Gate of Hell.

Noa: If we destroy the Mist Generator here, then Conkram will be free.

Gala: Noa, the Nemesis Gem from your parents! Throw it towards the Gate
of Hell!

Noa: OK!

{Noa runs closer to the Gate of Hell with Nemesis Gem in hand and winds
it up in preparation to throw it}

Noa: I'm not afraid of you! I hate you! Get out of here!

{Noa throws the Nemesis Gem at the Gate of Hell, which causes what
looks like a miniature black hole to open up and destroy the entrance.
Noa waves at Vahn and Gala with a smile on her face}

Gala: Noa! You did it!

Noa: Now we can go inside. Once we destroy the Mist Generator, Conkram
will be free! Then my mother and father will...

Gala: Alright, listen! This is the last Mist Generator! Let's not get
careless!

{They nod and enter the Absolute Fortress. They reach a gigantic lake
of Mist in front of them that lies underneath a funnel spilling Mist
into it}

Gala: Noa! Vahn! Look! There's a big pool of Mist!

{Noa runs over to the edge and gets on her hands and knees to gaze into
the lake of Mist below her}

Noa: Wow! Amazing! It looks like a lake made of Mist! Hey, what's that?
What is that?

{Vahn and Gala walk next to Noa, who has gotten off the ground and is
pointing above them. The camera moves over to the funnel jutting out
Mist into the Mist lake}

Gala: This must be Mist from the Mist Generator above.

Noa: That means we have to climb up from here!

Gala: Either way, we have to go around the lake of Mist.

{Noa jumps up and down excitedly}

Noa: Vahn, I can't wait to destroy that Mist Generator!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala make their way around the lake of Mist, heading to
the left of it. They climb the paths leading to an overhang looking
over the lake of Mist}

Noa: Vahn, over here! I can see the lake of Mist from here.

{Noa runs to the edge and starts to jump up and down impatiently. A
piece of the cliff breaks and Noa almost tumbles off but lands behind
the ledge}

Noa: Vahn! Gala! Look out! The ground is collapsing!

{Noa crouches on the ground and looks into the lake below. Vahn and
Gala walk behind her}

Gala: Noa, don't get carried away! Careful or you'll get hurt!

{Suddenly a deafening roar vibrates through the air; the whole place
starts to shake}

Gala: What on earth is going on? Is there something under us?

{The camera pans over the lake of Mist and closes in on the creature
inside of it. It roars and a closeup of its face is seen}

Gala: Vahn! That voice...

Noa: It's J-Juggernaut!

{A large rumble knocks Noa on her butt and brings Gala to a knee. Vahn
manages to keep himself standing. Noa and Gala get back up after the
shaking stops}

Noa: It's J-Juggernaut! Juggernaut is below us!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala run away from the ledge and get closer to the wall
on the other side of the path. Noa puts her hands to her ears}

Gala: It stopped. Maybe he's sleeping.

{Noa smiles in amusement}

Noa: That must have been Juggernaut tossing in his sleep.

Gala: I guess so. Anyway, let's hurry. We can't afford to waste time.

{The Ra-Seru heroes run through the Fortress until reaching a machine
room with three levers on a platform. They pull the left lever to
activate the platform leading higher into the Fortress and prepare to
exit}

Voice: Ha, ha, ha!

Noa: Who's there?

{A pillar of smoke rises out of the machine holding the levers and
Jette rises out of it}

Jette: Ha, ha! I am Jette, apostle of the Mist! This is my castle. Keep
your hands off that machine.

{Jette walks back to the middle lever on the machine and resets the
Rapid Transport System to its default position}

Noa: Come over here, Jette. I'll kick your butt!

Jette: Well, well. What a brave girl you are. It's too bad. If
Juggernaut were not soundly sleeping in order to replenish his Mist
elixir...He would silence you for all eternity with just one blow.

{Noa jumps up and down in anger}

Noa: Ooh...

Jette: Wait a minute...Now I remember. At Conkram. I have read your
minds and now know your thoughts. I believe this is our second meeting.

{Jette jumps high into the air and is enveloped by a Sim-Seru before
landing behind the Ra-Seru heroes}

Jette: Of course you also know well of Prince Cort.

Noa: Cort? Cort is my older brother.

Gala: What's the matter with you? Have you forgotten what the horrible
Mist caused that day?

{They charge at Jette but he disappears almost instantly}

Gala: What the...Where's Jette? Where did he go?

{Jette reappears behind the Ra-Seru heroes toward their right side}

Jette: Horrible Mist? Ha, ha, ha! The Mist is not horrible...It is
divine!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala turn around and face Jette, prepped in their battle
stances}

Jette: When a true ruler controls the Mist, humans will evolve. That is
why Mist Generators are made.

{Jette disappears and the Ra-Seru heroes scan the room with their eyes}

Jette: This Mist Generator is far more powerful than the prototype you
have seen.

{Jette reappears in front of Noa}

Jette: With the power of the Mist, we have enhanced Seru, and have
created Sim-Seru.

{Another image of Jette appears in front of Gala. It is apparent that
Jette can clone himself}

Jette: And in the Fortress is the ultimate Mist Generator!

{Jette and his clone both disappear}

Jette: With the powerful Sim-Seru created at Conkram, we are making an
even thicker Mist.

{Jette reappears in front of Vahn at the foot of the stairs leading up
to the machine}

Jette: I too am wearing one such invincible Sim-Seru. Its power exceeds
even that of Rogue. With this power, I shall now destroy you all.

heroes}

Jette: Hmm? Hmm...I see your future! I see...a bleak future for you
all! Ha, ha, ha, ha! Yours is a future of eternal despair. A dark
wilderness!

{After these words Jette disintegrates into countless tiny shards}

Gala: We wasted much time.

{Vahn, Noa and Gala reset the Rapid Transport System to where they had
pulled it before. After traveling through the massive fortress they
finally reach the Mist Generator, which is the largest one yet}

Meta: Vahn, Noa, Gala! We must destroy the Mist Generator! Are you
ready?

{Vahn, Noa and Gala close their eyes and reach out toward the Mist
Generator. Suddenly, Noa drops to the floor, clutching the sides of her
head in pain}

Noa: Ow! Ouch, ouch!

Gala: Noa what happened?

{Vahn and Gala crouch next to Noa and try to help her}

Noa: My head hurts! Oohh!

Gala: Hang in there, Noa!

{Noa sprawls forward onto the floor and starts to kick and scream in
agony}

Noa: Aarrggh! Shut up! Be quiet! Shut uuuupp! Get out of my head!

{Another flash of light and the camera changes to the room just below
the Ra-Seru heroes. Prince Cort starts walking toward Vahn, Noa and
Gala}

Cort: (Silence) Little sister...My dear sister...

{The camera changes back to the Ra-Seru heroes, Noa still holding her
head in pain on the floor}

Noa: Who are you?

Gala: Noa! Are you alright?

{Noa gets up from the floor, Gala on the ground looking up at her with
worry}

Noa: It stopped hurting.

{Vahn and Gala get up from the floor as Prince Cort stops in front of
them}

Cort: Hee, hee, hee. I must punish you, little sister, for trying to
destroy the Mist Generator. Bad girl!

Gala: C-Cort?

Cort: Good to see you all again. You were so good to me in Conkram...so
long ago. Noa, I didn't know it was you. Who would have thought I was
your brother!

Noa: Ooohh. You're wrong, Cort! You're not my brother. If you're my
brother, how could you be so bad to Mother and Father?

Cort: Noa, you are such a foolish little girl. The Mist is our
salvation. Our parents are happy the way they are.

{Noa continuously stamps her feet angrily}

Noa: Oohhh!

Cort: Rim Elm, that puny cave, East Voz Forest...I underestimated you.
I was trying to lure out Ra-Seru to make the Mist Generator. But I
never thought you would come this far. That was a miscaulculation. But
no matter. Once I kill you, everything will be right again. Hee, hee,
hee! I will kill you gently, little sister! I will send all of you to a
world free of pain and suffering.

Cort: It...It can't be. I...I lost...But I can't lose...The Mist is our
salvation...The Mist is eternal...It is perfect harmony...

{Three transparent cards that were floating in front of the Mist
Generator begin to go out. The whole area begins to tremble}

Cort: The Mist Generator and I are one. If I die, the Mist Generator
dies...

{A large tremor shakes the area and Prince Cort is flung over the ledge
he was leaning on}

Cort: Uuggh...Aaaaaaaah!

{Prince Cort falls through the many levels of the Absolute Fortress
before landing in the lake of Mist where Juggernaut rests. Noa looks
over the ledge where Cort fell}

Noa: Why? Why did you do it? My own brother!

{The Mist Generator's power starts to fade and it turns into rock and
eventually crumbles into thousands of pieces}

Noa: (Silence) Why did this happen?

Gala: Vahn! We're in trouble! The Fortress is collapsing. We haven't
got much time. If we don't hurry we'll be buried alive! Let's get out
of here!

Noa:
Why, why? (Silence)

1) Noa, forget about that for now!
2) Noa, if you want to live, hurry!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Noa, forget about that for now!
2) Noa, if you want to live, hurry!

Noa: Y-You're right, Vahn.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala try to run toward the exit but stones too heavy to
break apart collapse and block the entrance. Noa tries to pull away the
boulders to no avail}

Gala: Oh, no!

Noa: Vahn, what do we do now? We can't move this boulder!

Gala: Vahn, I don't plan on dying here.

1) Option One: Use Door of Light
2) Option Two: Wait a few seconds
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*****************************
Option One: Use Door of Light
*****************************

{Vahn, Noa and Gala use the Door of Light but arrive in a large metal
tunnel. A huge pit is in front of them}

Noa: Vahn...What happened to the Door of Light? This isn't the exit!
This isn't where we were before!

{Noa looks into the hole in front of them}

Gala: Vahn, we're not safe here. It's the vibrations from the
explosion. Let's jump down!

1) Then get ready to jump!
2) This place is too dangerous!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Then get ready to jump!

{A massive explosion enters the vent just after the Ra-Seru heroes jump
into the pit}
======================================================================

2) This place is too dangerous!

{A massive explosion comes toward the Ra-Seru heroes and knocks the Ra-
Seru heroes into the vent. Noa flaps her arms excitedly as they fall}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn, Noa and Gala fly out of a vent in front of the Gate of Hell.
Cara is waiting for them outside}

Cara: Whew! That was close!

Gala: Cara, you came because you wanted to help us! But how did you...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

******************************
Option Two: Wait a few seconds
******************************

{The Ra-Seru heroes try to search for a way out but cannot find a
route. Suddenly an air vent jutting out of the stone wall bursts open
revealing Cara}

Cara: Boy, you guys sure are dense.

Noa: Cara?

Gala: Cara! What are you doing here?

Cara:  I'll tell you later. Just follow me!

{Gala, Noa and Vahn follow Cara into the air vent. Vahn watches as a
massive explosion rises from the bottom of the Fortress and is about to
consume him. He jumps into the vent before the explosion catches up
with him. The scene changes to the inside of the vent and Noa and Gala
are standing in front of Cara}

Noa: Cara! What should we do? There's nowhere to go!

{Vahn comes running up behind them}

Cara: Ha, ha, ha! What do you mean, "Nowhere to go"? We can go right
here!

{Cara dives into the pit in front of them}

Noa: Aaahhh! Cara fell off...!

Gala: Well, Vahn. Should we jump down like Cara did?

1) Then get ready to jump!
2) This place is too dangerous!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Then get ready to jump!

{A massive explosion enters the vent just after the Ra-Seru heroes jump
into the vent. Noa flaps her arms excitedly as they fall}
======================================================================

2) This place is too dangerous!

{A massive explosion comes toward the Ra-Seru heroes and knocks the Ra-
Seru heroes into the vent. Noa flaps her arms excitedly as they fall}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{They hit the bottom where they slide a steep slope and slide out the
vent, landing in front of the Absolute Fortress. The scene changes to
Vahn's POV and he slowly blinks his eyes open with Noa, Cara and Gala
standing over him}

Cara: Whew! That was close!

Gala: Cara, I'll never forget what you did for us. But how...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cara: Ha, ha, ha! Hey, you! Come down here!

{Grantes flies into view and lands in front of everyone}

Noa: Grantes...Is that you, Grantes?

Grantes: Uh-huh.

Gala: Those Seru Wings...

Grantes: The elder gave his permission.

Noa: Hooray! Grantes, I'm so glad you came! Cara, I'm so glad to see
you!

Cara: We were worried about you. We were watching the Absolute Fortress
from the air. Then we saw this terrific flash of light, so we got here
as fast as we could!

Gala: Grantes, that means you're a Soren again...

Grantes: No, I'm returning these Seru Wings as soon as I'm done with
them.

{Cara snuggles up to Grantes}

Cara: He says he wants to live as an earthbound human.

Grantes: Cara...

{Cara and Grantes embrace in a romantic kiss. Vahn, Noa and Gala watch
in shock with their mouths hanging open}

Gala: Hmm.

Noa: I understand! You're in love! You're in love, aren't you!

Cara: Ha, ha, ha, ha! You have such a pure and honest heart!

{Grantes jump in the air and flies directly over Cara}

Grantes: Cara...

Cara: Alright. Let's get out of here.

{Grantes grabs Cara by the arms and pulls her into the air. As they fly
away Cara calls out to them}

Cara: I'm really glad that I met you. Come visit me in Buma when you
have the time. We'll be waiting.

{Cara and Grantes disappear into the distance as Noa waves goodbye}

Gala: Ah, it's good to be human!

{Vahn and Noa nod in agreement}

Noa: Now all the Mist is gone.

Gala: That's right! And Juggernaut and the Mist Generator are
destroyed, as well!

Noa: Let's go to Conkram. My mother and father are waiting for us.

{The Ra-Seru heroes travel the northern plains down south to revit
Conkram}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Vahn, Noa and Gala reach Conkram. Aside from two rays of light, the
sky is dark and cloudy and there is no palace or city in sight}

Gala: Oh my...What happened to Conkram?

{Noa runs forward to try and see farther}

Noa: Father...

{Noa runs even deeper into the area looking for her parents}

Noa: Mother!

{Noa runs straight ahead and calls out to her mother}

Noa: Mother!!!

{Noa runs farther down the steep cliff and calls out to her father}

Noa: Faaaaather!!!

{Noa hangs her head sad and confused}

Noa: Where are you? Where did you go?

{Vahn walks into view just behind Noa}

Noa: I destroyed the Mist Generator. The Mist is gone! Mother, father!
Now you're free of the Mist!

{Gala walks into view}

Gala: Ozma, tell me! What happened?

{Vahn and Noa look at Ozma}

Ozma: The Sim-Seru around Conkram grew in an unstable manner. The Sim-
Seru could live only in the Mist. So when the Mist disappeared...The
Sim-Seru died, and Conkram with it.

Noa: Terra! Terra! Why didn't you tell me? Why didn't you tell me
Conkram would die if the Mist disappeared?

Terra: (Silence)

Gala: The King and Queen must have known this would happen, if the Mist
disappeared. Yet they ordered us to destroy the Mist Generator! So
Noa...Don't blame Terra. There was no other way.

Noa: No! No! Terra, you lied! I hate you, Terra! Bring my father back
to me! Bring my mother back to me!

{Noa drops to the ground, her eyes pouring with tears}

Noa: Waaahhh! Waaahhh!

{The camera zooms out as the sky gets dark. It starts to rain over
where Conkram used to be. Vahn and Gala can only watch helplessly as
Noa cries her heart out. The screen fades to black}

Off-Screen: Vahn! Noa! Gala! Three heroes wearing Ra-Seru once revived
the Genesis Trees...and destroyed four Mist Generators to save the
world from the Mist! Vahn, your deeds are legendary! Your bravery
brought the world back from the brink of annihilation! Your
determination created hope where there was hopelessness. The world is
forever in your debt! Now, children of Rim Elm, Vahn is one of you now!
Whatever happens, no matter what troubles you encounter, never forget
that!

Nene (Off-Screen): Are you going to sleep forever? Come on, wake up!

{The screen clears and Vahn is seen sleeping in his bed at home, Nene
looking over him}

Nene: You may be the hero who saved the world, but you're still a
sleepyhead!

{Vahn rolls over on his side and looks at his little sister}

Nene: Gala and Noa are already up and outside! Why don't you go out,
too!

{Vahn leaves his home to wander the village}

**************************
Optional Event: Find Tetsu
**************************

{Vahn finds Tetsu on the beach}

Tetsu: Your face is so manly now! I almost didn't recognize you! What's
going on, Vahn? Do you want something today?

1) I want to hear about Biron
2) Tell me the secrets of fighting
3) I want to practice with you
4) Nothing in particular
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I want to hear about Biron.

Tetsu: So you want to know about Biron...I just visited Biron Temple the
other day, and Master Zopu was in good health. Young people are going
there from all over the world to learn the teachings of Biron. Master
Zoup said it was all because of you, Noa, and Gala. Vahn, do you want to
ask me anything else?
======================================================================

2) Tell me the secrets of fighting.

Tetsu: Ha ha! There's nothing more I can teach a veteran warrior like
you, Vahn! But let an old soldier give you some advice. Remember...
Battle is like life: No shortcut to success. Sometimes a new path
appears where none was visible before. In this respect, such a thing as
a secret to fighting may not even exist at all. Vahn, do you want to ask
me anything else?
======================================================================

3) I want to practice with you.

Tetsu: Good! Now that you are so much stronger, I had wanted to test
myself against you. But remember we are in peaceful Rim Elm. Do not
summon any Seru. Now, come at me!

a. Vahn beats Tetsu
b. Vahn loses to Tetsu
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. Vahn loses to Tetsu

Tetsu: You were careless, Vahn! Such carelessness makes me concerned for
the world's future! Now calm down, and rethink your strategy.

* Vahn asks Tetsu to practice again

Tetsu: Hmm. So you don't like to lose. Very well. Come at me!
======================================================================

a. Vahn beats Tetsu

Tetsu: Y-You win! Most impressive! Your abilities are too much for me!
You have matured, Vahn. That is why I am giving you this.

Narration: Vahn now has the Mettle Gem.

Tetsu: Vahn, do you want to ask me anything else?

* Vahn asks to practice after beating Tetsu

Tetsu: Ha ha ha! You have already demonstrated your abilities to me most
clearly! There is no further need for us to practice together. Vahn, do
you want to ask me anything else?
======================================================================

4) Nothing in particular.

Tetsu: Hmm. I am truly grateful to you, Vahn, from the bottom of my
heart.

Optional Event: Find Maya and Mei
*********************************

(Vahn walks over to Mei's house. Just as he reaches the steps of the
house Maya walks out}

Maya: Vahn! I'm so glad you came here to see me!

(Maya walks down the steps and stops in front of Vahn)

Maya: Now let me get a good look at your face. (Silence) Such a sturdy-
looking face! This is the face of a full-grown man, the hero who saved
the world!

(Vahn blushes with embarrassment)

Maya: Hee hee! What's the matter, Vahn? You're blushing! Oh, I almost
forgot. I have to go somewhere now.

{Maya walks forward a bit and then turns around}

Maya: Mei is inside. Don't be bashful. Stay awhile!

{Vahn walks into Mei's house right after Maya leaves. He sees Mei
working on a pile of clothes at the table}

Mei: Oh, what's the matter, Mother, did you forget something?

{Vahn walks up to Mei}

Mei: ! Vahn! You scared me, walking in so suddenly without even saying a
word!

1) I'm sorry! So, how are you?
2) I was thinking about you.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I'm sorry! So, how are you?

Mei: I'm fine. Vahn, you may be the hero who saved the world from Mist,
but you haven't changed!

(Mei walks closer to Vahn)

Mei: But I adore you just the way you are, Vahn! Welcome back!

a. Mei, I saved the world for you.
b. Mei, you've changed.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a. Mei, I saved the world for you.
b. Mei, you've changed.

Mei: Well, just like you've gotten stronger, I've grown up a little.
The world has changed now that the Mist is gone. Actually, I've started
a tailoring business. I have to earn a living, you know. Hee hee. I may
not look it, but I have quite a reputation as a skilled tailor now.
======================================================================

2) I was thinking about you.

Mei: Well, so you really do worry about me!

{Mei walks closer to Vahn}

Mei: But you worry about Noa most of all, right?

{Vahn scatches his head embarrassingly}

Mei: Take it easy, I'm just teasing! I like Noa a lot, too!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Oh, you were joking. Ha ha!
2) Mei, you've changed.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Oh, you were joking. Ha ha!
2) Mei, you've changed.

Mei: Well, just like you've gotten stronger, I've grown up a little.
The world has changed now that the Mist is gone. Actually, I've started
a tailoring business. I have to earn a living, you know. Hee hee. I may
not look it, but I have quite a reputation as a skilled tailor now.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Vahn suddenly grabs Mei's shoulder and kisses her softly with his eyes
closed. Mei blushes all over)

Mei: (Silence)

(Maya suddenly walks in and Mei pushes Vahn away)

Maya: Well, well. You two look like you're having fun. What were you
talking about?

Mei: Mother! Welcome home. Well, how did it go? What did the shopkeeper
say?

Maya: Actually...He gave me a good price. He said he can always use
clothes of such good quality.

Mei: Vahn! Did you hear that?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Mei: Vahn, I'm going to work hard and open up my own store with Mother.
I hope you'll be rooting for me.
======================================================================

2) No

Mei: Oh, Vahn, stop teasing me! I know you heard what Mother said! Vahn,
I'm going to work hard and open up my own store with Mother. I hope
you'll be rooting for me.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Maya: Listen to this child. She's absorbed in her work. And it's all
thanks to you, Vahn. And it's not just Mei! Everyone in Rim Elm is full
of life now! Everyone is enjoying life and being alive!

{Vahn talks to Maya}

Maya: Vahn, can I ask you something?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Maya: Oh. Well, I don't want to force you, so never mind.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Maya: Thank you, Vahn. You're so nice. What I want to ask you
about... ...is Songi. Vahn, have you met Songi since then?

a. Yes. Several times.
b. W-Well, actually I...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a. Yes. Several times.

Maya: Really? So, how is Songi?

a1: A Seru has made him inhuman.
b1: I guess you could say he's healthy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a1: A Seru has made him inhuman.

Maya: Oh, no...(Silence) So, Songi's not the person I once knew
anymore...
======================================================================

b1. I guess you could say he's healthy.

Maya: What do you mean? Vahn, is there something you're not telling me?
I know! The Seru! Something horrible happened to him because of the Seru,
right?

1) I'm sorry.
2) He was an evil person.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I'm sorry.
2) He was an evil person.

Maya: Songi was competitive and vain, but he was a good child -- gentle
and obedient. I don't know much about the Seru, but I know
that... ...the Mist and the Seru bring out the meanness and weakness in
human nature.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

******************
End Optional Event
******************

{Vahn decides to find his companions}

1) Option One: Speak to Noa First
2) Option Two: Speak to Gala First
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

******************************
Option One: Speak to Noa First
******************************

{Vahn enters the Village Elder's house and sees Noa staring out the
window in the back of the room. He walks over to try and comfort her}

Noa: I don't like tragedy. I hate being alone! So why...I just don't
understand. Vahn, why do the people I love have to die? My mother,
father...And my brother, too.

{Noa hangs her head and turns back toward the window}

Noa: I don't believe Terra anymore. Terra lied to me, so I don't like
her anymore. Ever since then, Terra won't answer me at all.

{Noa looks at Vahn}

Noa: I'm sad! I don't want to hate Terra! I want to believe her! I
don't believe Terra anymore! I feel like I hate her now!

{Noa faces the window again}

Noa: That's why I feel so sad and lonely

{Vahn leaves the Village Elder's house and heads over to the Genesis
Tree to talk to Gala}

Gala: Vahn, your journey began at this Genesis Tree. It was this
Genesis Tree that brought us together. We are so lucky we met each
other! But there are still a couple of things that bother me.

{Vahn nods}

Gala: Right! Songi! He's still alive! We defeated Cort and Juggernaut
at the Absolute Fortress Mist Generator. But nobody knows where Songi
disappeared to. Maybe I'm worrying too much, but I don't think
everything's over yet.

{Suddenly a little blue-headed child runs over to Vahn and Gala}

Little Boy: I knew you would be here! Um, there's someone here to see
you. He says he wants to see Vahn and Gala.

1) To see us? Who could it be?
2) I wonder if it's Dr. Usha...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) To see us? Who could it be?

Little Boy: Um...oh, he told me his name but I forgot. He has spiky
hair. Um...Wait a minute. Oh, that's right! Songi! His name is Songi!
======================================================================

2) I wonder if it's Dr. Usha...

Little Boy: No, Vahn! He doesn't look like a doctor at all. He's kind
of scary-looking. His hair is spiky! That's right, he told me his name.
Songi! His name is Songi!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gala: What?! Songi? Where is he? Where's Songi?

Little Boy: (Silence) I'm scared, Gala...

Gala: Where is Songi?

Little Boy: At...the entrance to the village.

Gala: That Songi! What could he be up to? Vahn, I'll go!

{Gala runs out of the Genesis Tree pit and the little kid runs up to
Vahn}

Little Boy: Vahn, wait!

{A little blonde girl runs over to Vahn and the little boy}

Little Boy: Vahn, is Songi a bad guy? Is he going to do something bad
to Rim Elm?

1) He's a bad guy, but don't worry!
2) Maybe he's changed.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) He's a bad guy, but don't worry!

Little Boy: O.K., I won't! Vahn, Noa and Gala! You guys can take care
of any bad guy!
======================================================================

2) Maybe he's changed.

Little Boy: I hope so! The Mist is gone, so all the bad people
disappeared, too, right?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*******************************
Option Two: Speak to Gala First
*******************************

{Vahn meets Gala in the Genesis Tree pit}

Gala: Vahn, your journey began at this Genesis Tree. It was this
Genesis Tree that brought us together. We are so lucky we met each
other! But there are still a couple of things that bother me.

{Vahn nods}

Gala: Right! Songi! He's still alive! We defeated Cort and Juggernaut
at the Absolute Fortress Mist Generator. But nobody knows where Songi
disappeared to. Maybe I'm worrying too much, but I don't think
everything's over yet.

{Vahn runs into the Village Elder's house to talk to Noa, who's staring
out the window}

Noa: I don't like tragedy. I hate being alone! So why...I just don't
understand. Vahn, why do the people I love have to die? My mother,
father...And my brother, too.

{Noa hangs her head and turns back toward the window}

Noa: I don't believe Terra anymore. Terra lied to me, so I don't like
her anymore. Ever since then, Terra won't answer me at all.

{Noa looks at Vahn}

Noa: I'm sad! I don't want to hate Terra! I want to believe her! I
don't believe Terra anymore! I feel like I hate her now!

{Noa faces the window again}

Noa: That's why I feel so sad and lonely
{A little blue-haired kid runs over to them}

Little Kid: So you were here, Vahn and Noa, just as I thought.

Village Elder: What do you want? Do you want to see them?

Little Kid:  You have a visitor!

Noa:  A visitor? Someone came to see us?

Little Kid: Uh-huh!

Village Elder: He must be here to offer you his blessing.

Little Kid: Oh. He said his name was...Songi.

Noa: Songi! Did he really say his name was Songi?

Little Kid: Yeah! Songi...wants to see us?

Noa: Uh-Oh. What does Songi want? That Songi is a bad person! I'll
never forgive Songi for what he did! {Noa starts to run out of the
room}

Village Elder: What's the matter, Vahn, Noa? Is that Songi fellow going
to start trouble?

1) Songi is a follower of the Mist.
2) I'll take care of any trouble.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Songi is a follower of the Mist.

Village Elder: You don't say! I didn't know any of the Mist's henchmen
were still alive! What could he want in a village like Rim Elm? Vahn!
I'm worried about you. I'll go with you.

{Vahn runs outside}
======================================================================

2) I'll take care of any trouble.

Village Elder: Haha! You sure are a Ra-Seru hero! You're so confident.
Alright, Vahn! Go to Noa's place.

{Vahn runs outside}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn heads to the entrance of the village. The scene changes to Songi
standing at the entrance to Rim Elm surrounded byvillagers }

Gala: Songi! What do you want here?

Noa: Songi, did you come here to do something bad?

{Both Noa and Gala walk right in front of Songi}

Songi: Ha ha ha! That's a fine how-do-you-do. I came here to
congratulate you!

{Vahn appears at the scene and stops in front of Songi}

Vahn: (Silent doubt)

1) Songi! Leave Rim Elm right now!
2) Songi! Have you changed your ways?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Songi! Leave Rim Elm right now!

Songi: Hey, hey, Vahn! Is that how you treat your guests?
======================================================================

2) Songi! Have you changed your ways?

Songi: What? Have I changed my ways? I'm still me. I've always been
true to myself.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Songi turns to Tetsu}

Songi: I was just talking about your friend and mine, dear old Gala.

{Tetsu nods}

Gala: Songi...

{Songi turns his attention to Gala}

Gala: I know you're too proud to apologize, but...

Noa: Yeah! Say you're sorry! Songi! You'd better say you're sorry right
now!

Songi: Ha ha ha ha ha!

{Songi walks away from the group and spits on the ground}

Songi: Apologize? You're telling me to apologize? Now that's funny! Ha
ha ha!

{Songi walks closer to the entrance to Rim Elm and turns around toward
the group}

Songi: Well, I see the idiot brigade still hasn't mastered thinking!
Gala, take a look!

{Songi jumps into the air and shoots an energy blast at the villagers.
Tetsu jumps into the air to attack Songi but is struck down to the
ground with a single hit}

Gala: Songi! What are you up to?

Songi: Don't worry, he's not dead. I held back. After all, if he dies,
he won't be food for Juggernaut anymore.

Gala: Juggernaut? How could that be? Juggernaut died with Cort!

Songi: Hello, Gala! You're not thinking! Juggernaut is an enhanced
Seru! A Sim-Seru! The power of Seru comes out when it combines with a
human! Who is this Seru combined with?

{Noa gets up from the floor}

Noa: No! M-My brother?

{Gala gets up from the floor}

Gala: Cort!

{Vahn finally gets up last}

Songi: Correct! Say, you do have some brains, eh? Listen closely.
Juggernaut's almost here.

{Gala runs directly in front of Songi, only Tetsu's head on the floor
to separate them}

Gala: Songi! It's me you resent, right? Then kill me! Leave the people
of Rim Elm out of this! Don't harm them!

{Songi turns away from Gala}

Songi: Gala, you don't understand. You don't matter at all to me
anymore.

{Songi jumps on a broken piece of the wall that used to stand in front
of Rim Elm. Vahn, Noa and Gala run close to the rock that Songi is
standing on}

Songi: For I am the ruler of a new world, the world of the Mist!

Gala: Songi, your depravity never ceases to amaze me.

{Suddenly the sky turns pitch black}

Meta: Vahn, it's Juggernaut!

Ozma: Gala, it's too late to run away!

Terra: Noa, concentrate! Focus!

{The Ra-Seru heroes huddle together and surround themselves in a ball
of transparent energy to shield themselves}

Songi: Ha ha! That's it! Just stand there and watch, with your Ra-Seru
to protect you! Watch, as a new kingdom of the Mist is born at this
very spot!

{Suddenly Juggernaut appears and starts letting out hundreds of long
rope-like red organs from the bottoms of its feet and the top of its
back. Before long it is completely assimilated with Rim Elm and its
villagers}

Songi: Ha, ha, ha! Now Rim Elm is a Seru town, just like Conkram. Vahn!
Your friends and family are now part of Juggernaut!

Noa: NO! NNOOOOOO!

{Noa charges Songi but he knocks her down quickly with a punch to the
head}

Songi: Sorry! I can't let all of you inside.

{Songi walks over to Juggernaut's head and uses the power of his Ra-
Seru to surround Juggernaut's mouth in a protective cocoon. Noa gets
back up}

Noa: No! You can't do this! I won't let you!

{Noa tries to break through the protective barrier but is knocked flat
on her back. Vahn rushes to her aid}

Songi: Ha, ha! How pathetic. This is only the beginning! Juggernaut'll
grow until he swallows the whole human world!

Gala: Songi! How can you do this? You call yourself human?

{Songi spits on the ground and turns his grimace into an evil glare}

Songi: Gala, you are as clueless as ever! I am no ordinary human! Don't
you get it, Gala? I am the ruler! And as ruler, I cannot trouble myself
with you! I must go and conquer another world.

Gala: Another world? No...Not the Seru-kai!

Songi: Ha, ha, ha! That's right! I'll never have to see you again!
Farewell! Have fun...dying, that is!

{A portal opens overhead and Songi immediately jumps into it. It
disappears immediately afterward}

Gala: W-Wait! Songi, wait!

{Gala looks at Noa as she finally gets up from the ground}

Noa: Why? Why won't the Genesis Tree protect us?

Terra: Noa...The Genesis Tree lost its powers because of the Seru-kai.

Ozma: If Songi conquers the Seru-kai, my life will end, and all hope
will be lost.

Gala: Tell me, Ozma! How can we go after Songi? How can we get to the
Seru-kai?

Ozma: There is only one way to the Seru-kai, and it's in Uru Mais.

Gala: So that's why Juggernaut invaded Uru Mais!

Terra: The only way to save Rim Elm and the world is to go to the Seru-
kai.

Noa: Vahn, we have to go to Uru Mais now!

Gala: Vahn, to save Rim Elm, we have to go to Uru Mais!

{The Ra-Seru heroes leave Rim Elm and decide to travel back to Uru
Mais}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Vahn, Noa and Gala enter Uru Mais. Nothing has changed since it was
destroyed by Juggernaut many days before. Noa scans the area}

Noa: Tieg...Uru Mais is deserted! There's no one here!

Gala: Ozma! Ra-Seru! Tell us! Is this where we can find the door to the
Seru-kai you told us about?

Ozma: Gala, strain your ears...I mean, your mind. Listen! You can hear
the Words.

Terra: Uru Mais has been destroyed, but the Words remain!

Meta: You heard them, correct? They say that Tieg will live forever.

Narration: The serene Words creep into one's heart.

Words: Tieg is Words. Humans! Rely not on your imperfect eyes!

Noa: It's Tieg! Tieg is alive, everyone!

Gala: Let's go to the ruins! Tieg will open the door for us!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala run up the steps to the destroyed pyramid}

Meta: Vahn! Call to Tieg and have the door to the Seru-kai opened! Once
we pass through the door, there is no turning back. Are you ready?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Meta: (Silence)
======================================================================

1) Yes

Meta: Very well! Then we must focus our thoughts!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Noa: Tieg! It's me, Noa! Open the door for us!

Gala: Tieg! Open the door! To restore order to the Seru-kai! Show us
the way, so that we may retake the human world form the Mist's
henchmen!

Meta: Vahn! Call to Tieg! Now! Concentrate! Harder! Turn your bravery
into Words!

{A series of quakes and flashes of light erupt and Tieg appears before
the Ra-Seru heroes}

Tieg: Humans, Tieg has heard your Words. The Words are what show the
way. Proceed, humans!

{A portal opens behind Tieg and the god floats backward, disappearing
into the portal. The Ra-Seru heroes get sucked into the portal and
travel through a vortex}

Terra: Noa? Wait a minute!

Ozma: Gala, I need to tell you something.

Meta: Vahn, Noa, and Gala. We want to thank you...From the bottom of
our hearts! I am so fortunate to have joined up with young people like
you!

Ozma: When Tieg divided his body into human and Seru, the Seru were
entrusted with order. Tieg had faith in human potential, and ordered
the Seru not to interfere in human affairs.

Terra: But a thousand years ago, the Ra-Seru Rogue staged a rebellion
and came to the human world. The rebellion was put down with Tieg's
strength, but the humans had learned of the Seru. That's when the Ra-
Seru were sent to the human world, along with the Genesis Trees.

Meta: Our mission was to restore order when impending disaster
threatened the human world. The Genesis Tree was also a means of
maintaining order.

Ozma: But in the end, as you all know...Humans, possessed by the Mist,
took over the Seru-kai.

Terra: I do not know for certain what transpires in Seru-kai. But you
can save the Seru-kai and the human world! I am sure you can do it!

Noa: Terra! Where are you going? I don't want you to go!

Terra: Noa, don't be silly. Long ago, I made you a promise, right? I
promised...This old wolf would stay with you no matter what! That's
what we agreed, right?

Noa: Yeah! Terra! You promised! You promised, so don't forget!

Gala: Alright! It's time to free the Seru-kai from Songi's grasp!

                                                                [a315]

{The Ra-Seru heroes arrive in Noaru Valley after going through the
vortex from Uru Mais. Before long, the Ra-Seru heroes reach an enormous
Genesis Tree in the distance}

Noa: The Genesis Tree!

Terra: Look! That's the Great Genesis Tree that the power of the Seru-
kai and the Ra-Seru flows.

Gala: It is indeed a massive Genesis Tree as the name suggests, but...

Ozma: The Great Genesis Tree seems weak. It will die unless we do
something.

Meta: That is a special Sim-Seru. It's robbing the Great Genesis Tree
of its life force!

Noa: If the Great Genesis Tree dies, will you die, too, Terra?

Terra: Yes, I suppose...that is what will happen.

Noa: No! Vahn! Gala! We can't let that happen!

Gala: Maybe we can save the Great Genesis Tree! Let's get a closer
look!

{The Ra-Seru heroes run up the path leading to the Great Genesis Tree
and see Songi at itstrunk absorbing energy into his hands using the
special Sim-Seru}

Noa: Songi!

Gala: Songi! What are you doing to the Great Genesis Tree?

Songi: Ha ha ha! The muscle-bound oaf must have a loose screw! It's
obvious! I am using my special Sim-Seru to drain the powers of the
Great Genesis Tree! Once I absorb all its power, the Seru-kai will
die...And then I, not Cort, will have the power to rule the world!

Noa: But this is the Seru-kai! And...And the Great Genesis Tree belongs
to the Ra-Seru! So how can you come here and drain away the Great
Genesis Tree's life?!

{Noa looks at Vahn for an answer but he shakes his head to show he also
has no idea}

Songi: Heh heh! A good question for a barbarian girl like you. Well
then, I shall tell you. My Seru grew from a Ra-Seru Egg from East Voz
Forest. In other words, this is a Ra-Seru.

{Gala looks at Vahn and Noa}

Gala: Impossible!

Songi: It was Cort who took a Ra-Seru Egg that lost its strength, and
turned it into a Sim-Seru. By fusing myself with a Sim-Seru born of a
Ra-Seru, I have become the ultimate life form. Ha ha ha! I am a god!
The second coming of Tieg!

Noa: You're Tieg? You can't be Tieg!

Gala: Don't be a fool, Songi! Cort's evil ambitions have taken hold of
your soul!

{Songi backflips a few feet backward}

Songi: You are the fool! And you, Gala! You and the rest are also being
controlled by those Ra-Seru! Ha ha ha! So we are all heretics who have
strayed from the path of Biron! We're comrades!

{Songi gets ready in his battle stance which prompts the Ra-Seru heroes
to do the same}

Songi: So let us settle things once and for all. Come at me! All three
of you!

{Songi jumps into the air and comes down morphed into a hideous
creature with the power of his Ra-Sim-Seru}

+===========+
+Boss: Songi+
+===========+

Element: Dark
Attacks: Chaos Flare, Genocidal Cannon

{The Ra-Seru heroes prevail against Songi. Gala flexes his arm into the
air and powerfully says his former best friend's name, "Songi".

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

{Songi's Ra-Sim-Seru soon separates from his body and breaks into
shards; Songi's skin remains stone gray}

Songi: No! The Ra-Seru is separating from my body! Ha ha ha! Look at
me, Gala! How pitiful I am! Even with the power of the Ra-Seru, I
couldn't...couldn't defeat...Ooh!

{Songi collapses onto the ground and starts writhing in pain, screaming
at the top of his lungs. Gala rushes to his side}

Gala: Songi, what's wrong!

{Vahn and Noa walk closer to Songi's flailing body. Noa crouches in
front of him}

Songi: Arrgh! My whole body hurts! I can't take it!

Meta: The Seru-kai is a world intolerant of the presence of ordinary
human beings.

{Noa gets back up}

Terra: Now that he has lost his Seru, Songi will return to nothingness.

{Songi stops writhing and holds a hand out into the air, pleading for
help}

Songi: Gala! Gala! The pain is unbearable! You're my friend...Help me!

Gala: Ozma, can't we do something for him?

Ozma: I'm sorry, but he can no longer exist in the Seru-kai.

{Songi gets on both knees and holds his hands out in the air}

Songi: Arrggh!

{A small white light begins to build within Songi's chest and expands
to cover most of his body}

Songi: Curse all you Seru! Is this all your powers can do?!
Gala...You...you're next!

{Songi's body temporarily disintegrates into shards and then reforms}

Songi: Seru and Ra-Seru, they're all the same! They're all useless!

{Songi's body temporarily disintegrates and reforms again}

Songi: Good-for-nothing Seru! Ha, ha, ha!

{Within moments Songi's body bursts into thousands of tiny shards}

Gala: Songi!

{Noa walks over to the Great Genesis Tree and examines it}

Noa: Terra! Let's give life to the Great Genesis Tree!

Terra: (Silence)

Noa: Terra, what's wrong?

Terra: It's no use, Noa! The Great Genesis Tree is too weak to be
revived!

Gala: What? You mean the Great Genesis Tree is going to die?!

{Noaru Valley trembles in a great earthquake causing Noa and Gala to
fall down and throwing Vahn off balance. Noa looks into the sky beyond}

Noa: Look! The Seru-kai's sky! It's changing!

{Vahn and Gala turn around and see the sky turn dark and lightning
begin to strike}

Noa: Terra!

Terra: (Silence)

Noa: Terra! TERRAAAA!

Gala: The Ra-Seru are growing weaker, too! The Great Genesis Tree is
almost dead! No! Are our lives to expire with the Seru-kai?!

Noa: Vahn, Gala! Let's pray! Let's pray to the Great Genesis Tree!

Gala: Our faith is all we have left! Vahn, let's try!

{They all nod and prepare to pray to the dying Great Genesis Tree}

Noa: Great Genesis Tree! If you die, the Seru-kai will also die! So
will the Ra-Seru Terra and Ozma and Meta and us, too! We'll all die!
Please! Come back to life!

{Noa clasps her hands in prayer and closes her eyes. Gala walks close
to the Great Genesis Tree and raises his hand into the air}

Gala: Great Genesis Tree! Show us a miracle! Give life back to the
bodies ruined by the evil Sim-Seru!

{Noa turns around to Vahn}

Noa: Vahn! You must pray as well!

{Vahn looks at Gala}

Gala: Vahn! Pray! We must all pray together!

{Vahn walks over to the trunk of the Great Genesis Tree with the others
and begins to pray}

Noa: Come back to life!

Gala: Great Genesis Tree! Hear our prayers!

{After a few moments of silence a red orb, a green orb and a blue orb
all fly out from underneath the crystal walkway and float around the
Great Genesis Tree}

Noa: L-Look!

{Vahn and Gala turn to see a white orb on the leaves of the Great
Genesis Tree in front of them}

Narration: The three faces of the past...the present...and the future
shall now teach you...the flow of time}

{From within the white orb an image begins to manifest and suddenly it
takes the shape of Hari of the Past}

Hari of the Past: Didn't I tell you? That some day we would meet at an
unlikely place?

Noa: Hari!

{Hari of the Present manifests itself within a different white orb
right in front of Gala}

Gala: Hari! But you disappeared into the earth below Octam!

{Right in front of Vahn, Hari of the Future manifests within a separate
white orb hanging from the branches of the Great Genesis Tree}

Hari of the Future: The god of time, Rem...known also as Tieg...The
prophecies of Rem. They are the words of Tieg! The spirit of Tieg that
resides in this body has given us words that transcend time. Our bodies
have died. But the death of our bodies has given our souls immortality.

Hari of the Past: Like Tieg, our spirits are nowbeings that transcend
time. Brave Ra-Seru! The will of Tieg will show you the path you must
take!

Hari of the Future:
It is our mission to carry out the will of Tieg.

Noa: Is Hari going to give the Great Genesis Tree life?

Hari of the Past: The Great Genesis Tree is fated to die, and we cannot
reverse that.

Gala: But...the Seru-kai!

Hari of the Present: All we can do is give the last of shining power to
nurture the life of the Great Genesis Tree.

{Hari of the Past, Hari of the Present and Hari of the Future surround
the Great Genesis Tree and summon lightning to break off the Sim-Seru
covering it. The Great Genesis Tree begins to restore to its natural
color and the sky returns to normal. All three Hari's rise up in front
of the Ra-Seru heroes}

Hari: All our power...has entered...the Great Genesis Tree! Now...we
shall attain...complete nothingness! But fate...and your will...are one
and the same.

Hari of the Future: Make...your own fate...with your own hands!
Goodbye, Ra-Seru heroes!

{All three bodies of Hari disappear into nothingness}

Terra: Noa...

Noa: Terra! Terra! Are you alright?

Terra: You don't have to worry about me, Noa. Worry about the Great
Genesis Tree...

Gala: Noa, Vahn! Let's give the Ra-Seru the power of the Great Genesis
Tree!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala reach out to the Great Genesis Tree. Multiple orbs
of energy come down from above the Great Genesis Tree and enter Meta,
Terra and Ozma}

Narration: With the power of the Genesis Tree, Meta's level increased
to Lv8. Terra's level increased to Lv7. Ozma's level increased to Lv6.

Meta: Thank you, Vahn. We have received the ultimate power.

Terra: Now we can do something about Juggernaut!

Ozma: But we must hurry! Hari gave the Great Genesis Tree life, but I
do not know how long that life force will last.

Terra: The Genesis Trees in the human world are linked to the Seru-kai!
We must go to Rim Elm!

{The Ra-Seru heroes stand in a circle and raise their hands in the air.
They are lifted into the sky as the scene fades}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Vahn, Noa and Gala land on top of Mt. Rikuroa}

Noa: What? Is this...Mt. Rikuroa?

Terra: Rim Elm's Genesis Tree is dead. So we came here.

Gala: I have a bad feeling about this. Vahn! Let's hurry to Rim Elm!

{Noa thinks out loud to herself}

Noa: Will everything be OK?

the Genesis Tree}

Narration: I hear a voice, from beyond the Genesis Tree!

Hari of the Past: Noa and Terra, human and Ra-Seru who have traveled

Vahn: (Silence)

Gala: Vahn, are you alright? I understand how you feel. Even if we
defeat Juggernaut...Your family and fellow villagers may not return to
normal...

Noa: Vahn!

{Noa runs over to Vahn}

Noa: Vahn...I understand! I understand how you feel, Vahn! So I'll wait
for you. I'll wait until you feel you're ready for this. I'll wait
until you're ready to fight Juggernaut.

{Noa and Gala wait for Vahn to get a hold of his emotions. After a
while Noa checks to see if Vahn is ready}

Noa: Vahn! You're alright now? You're alright, aren't you!

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

to fight! I'll wait as long as it takes.

1) Yes

{Vahn shakes his head yes}

Gala: (Silence) Before our own eyes, we've seen many towns recover from
the ravages of the Mist! We have made many miracles happen! So...so...

Noa: Vahn, you're not alone! Everything we did together, everything we
are going to do...It will never ever, ever, EVER be undone! That's
why...

its protective cocoon made by Songi}

Terra: Now! Now's the time to bring forth the power of the Great
Genesis Tree!

Meta: Vahn, are you prepared?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Meta: If you aren't firm in your resolve, then we can't head to the
final battleground. Unfortunately, this means entrusting our fate to
the Mist and its allies. But if that is your decision, Vahn, then
there's nothing we can do.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Meta: There's no point fighting Juggernaut from the outside!
Juggernaut's weak spot is on the inside!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Terra: Are you ready, everyone? We've got to cut an opening and crawl
into Juggernaut's body!

Ozma: We must work together! Let's go!

{Noa, Gala, and then Vahn raise their hands into the air and use the
powers of the Ra-Seru to enter Juggernaut's mouth and force it open,
causing the protective barrier to shatter and disappear}

Noa: So, is that it? Are we going to enter Juggernaut's body through
his mouth?

Gala: It sure seems that way. Brace yourselves! It's gonna be a wild
ride!

{Vahn, Noa and Gala ascend Juggernaut's head and enter through its
mouth. They travel deeper and deeper through the Sim-Seru's body,
swimming through rivers of blood in the process. Eventually they reach
a dark area where all the villagers of Rim Elm are fused with
Juggernaut's body}

{After checking up on everybody they travel deeper into Juggernaut.
Farther into Juggernaut they step on two pods that reveal a passage and
begin to walk through it}

Noa: Hey! I feel a breeze! There's a breeze coming from over there!

{Vahn and Gala notice a river of blood pour out of a tunnel beyond
them}

Gala: W-What's that?

Noa: Ah! Waaaaaa!

Gala: What's wrong, Noa? What are you shouting about? H-Holy...

{Vahn, Noa and Gala are swept away by a river of blood. Gala managaes
to grab on to a ledge as a third river of blood pours out from another
tunnel which causes the area to tremble even harder}

Gala: Y-You!

Noa: Are you alright, Gala? Please, don't let go!

Gala: I'm trying, but...my hands...I can't get a good grip...We're
slipping...

{Blood starts to pour out of a fourth tunnel and causes Gala to lose
his grip. They all fall into the depths below. The screen goes black.
After a few moments the sound of a heart beating is heard and the
screen clears up}

Noa: ?

{Noa gets up and notices the massive heart beating within the room}

Noa: I've felt this feeling before...

{Noa starts to walk toward the beating heart and Gala gets up after
her}

Gala: Noa! Where do you think you're going on your own?

{Vahn gets up slowly}

Gala: Vahn, we have to follow Noa!

{Vahn nods and the two run after Noa}

Noa: My b-brother...He's alive...

Gala: Just as Songi said - Cort has fused with Juggernaut and is still
alive. But...How horrifying. How bizarre...He couldn't be human
anymore.

{Noa becomes teary-eyed}

Noa: No! No! Stop! Stop it!

{Noa jumps on top of the side of the heart to face her brother closely.
Gala and Vahn follow her}

Noa: Cort, come back! Turn back into a person again! Why did you do it?
You're my brother! You're supposed to be human! I'm a human! I know
about love! I am human! I hate being alone! It's god to be human! So
Cort, be human again!

{Cort's eyes open slowly}

Cort: Hu-man?

Noa: Cort!

Cort: Human? Humans are weak. Humans are dirty. I gave up being human
to become a mighty being. I am a being that transcends humans! Even the
Seru! A perfect entity! A perfect entity! Perfect entity! Humans are
imperfect. I will use all my powers to destroy them!

{Cort starts to move around wildly as if in a frenzy}

Noa: No! You're wrong, Cort!

Cort: Who interferes?

Noa: It's me, Noa!

Cort: Noa? Who is Noa? I know no Noa!

{The camera zooms in on Cort's face, revealing his one blue eye and one
red eye. Veins portrude from his face}

Cort: I need no Noa!

{Cort's eyes charge up with energy. He shoots it at Noa, knocking her
down onto an artery below them. Gala and Vahn jump over to her side}

Gala: Noa! Are you alright?

{Noa gets up and shakes her head}

Noa: Cort...

Cort: I sense the presence of humans! Weak, dirty humans! I do not need
humans! I must destroy the humans here!

+==========+
+Boss: Cort+
+==========+

{A heavily mutated Cort rises out of the floor and attacks. Vahn, Noa
and Gala defeat him after their most difficult battle yet}

+===============+
+End Boss Battle+
+===============+

{Cort collapses to his side and remains still. Noa examines his corpse}

Noa: (Silence)

Terra: Noa, I know how you must feel.

Meta: We all did the best we could.

Terra: Now the human world will return to normal. However...Hari did
the best he could, but I think Noaru Valley is done for. The age of
Seru...Our era is over.

{Terra detaches from Noa's left arm and rises into the air in front of
her}

Meta: We are now just part of the collective memory known as history.

{Meta detaches from Vahn's arm and rises next to Terra}

Ozma: It's a little sad, isn't it?

{Ozma detaches from Gala and joins Meta and Terra in a circle above
Vahn, Noa and Gala. The Ra-Seru reassemble and each face their previous
wearers}

Noa: No! Terra, don't leave me alone! Don't leave me!

Terra: Noa, your parents were killed by Seru. Yet, you want to be with
me, a Seru? And besides, you're not alone. You have Vahn and Gala.

Gala: Ozma, we have experienced life and death together. How can you
leave me now?

Ozma: Oh, Gala, has your dependence on me caused you to forget your own
abilities?

Meta: Vahn, your heart is so full of warmth.

{The Ra-Seru becomes surrounded in a bright sphere of light. The scene
changes and the Ra-Seru heroes are standing in darkness as the Ra-Seru
levitate over them. Streaks of light flow throughout the darkness}

                          Meta, Terra and Ozma:
                            Thank you, Vahn.
                            Thank you, Noa.
                            Thank you, Gala.

                     Together, we humans and Seru
                    were stronger even than ancient
                             Tieg himself.

                           We are now heading
                          beyond the twilight.
                         But do not forget this.

                       Humans and Seru are both
                      born of Tieg, and are one.
                      They have lived through the
                               same era.

                        It is time for humans to
                            create their own
                                futures.

                 This is the last of our Seru powers.

{A flash of light erupts and the scene changes back to the inside of
Juggernaut. Meta, Terra and Ozma levitate away from the heroes and rise
into the air. Suddenly the Ra-Seru explode, letting out thousands of
bright yellow orbs that fill the area. Cort's corpse begins to glow.
The scene changes and a view of the outside of Juggernaut's body can be
seen. Juggernaut's body starts to break into pieces and
disintegrate.Suddenly a white orb bursts from Juggernaut's body and
explodes. Its energy lands on the villagers who are fused with
Juggernaut's body parts. A sphere lands on Mei and within moments the
disfigurement covering her begins to crack off and disappear. Mei opens
her eyes and the camera changes to an overview of Rim Elm showing all
of Juggernaut's body parts vanishing into thin air}

                                                                [a317]

Off-Screen: Thus did the brave deeds of our three heroes defeat
Juggernaut, who had engulfed Rim Elm...and brought to humankind a new
world of true peace, completely free of the Mist. Children of Rim Elm!
Be proud of Vahn, whose home is our village!

{Vahn is facing his father Val in front of the Genesis Tree. Vahn has a
small bag on the floor next to him and Val is standing without his
cane. Vahn picks his bag up from the ground and Nene walks over to
Vahn}

Nene: Be careful.

{Vahn turns around and kneels in front of Nene. Dr. Usha runs into
view}

Dr. Usha: Oh, no, how unfortunate! What a terrible blunder! I have a
Soren take me all the way here...

{Vahn gets up and both he and Nene turn to face Dr. Usha}

Dr. Usha: ...only to find that the biggest hero, Vahn, is about to
leave!

{Nene runs behind Vahn with a scared look on her face}

Nene: W-Who...is this person?

1) Dr. Usha, a brilliant scientist.
2) Um, I don't remember.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Dr. Usha, a brilliant scientist.

Dr. Usha: Correct. I am Usha, veritable warehouse of knowledge. Well,
never mind that. Vahn, I want you to tell me why you are leaving.
======================================================================

2) Um, I don't remember.

{Vahn turns away from Dr. Usha and scoffs at him}

Dr. Usha: Oh, I am tremendously disappointed. {Turns to Val} Oh, people
are so cold. Danger past, god forgotten. The world is a heartless
place. {Turns back to Vahn} Vahn, it is me, Dr. Usha! I gave you my
knowledge and the TimeSpace Bombs when you came to Karisto Kingdom.

{Vahn looks at Dr. Usha}

Dr Usha: Come closer and take a good look at my face. Now, there, do
you remember now?

a. Of course I remember.
b. No, I just can't recall.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No, I just can't recall.

(Same as "Um, I don't remember" response)
======================================================================

a. Of course I remember.

Dr. Usha: Well, never mind that.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dr. Usha:
Vahn, I want you to tell me why you are leaving.

1) To thank the people who helped me.
2) To see the Mist-free world.
3) To tell Noa my true feelings.
4) To train at Biron Monastery.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Ending One: To thank the people who helped me.

Dr. Usha: Such a strong sense of obligation! That means I could have
just awaited you at my lab!
======================================================================

2) To see the Mist-free world.

Dr. Usha: I see. Just what I would expect of you, Vahn. You wish to see
the fruits of your efforts!
======================================================================

3) To Tell Noa my true feelings.

Dr. Usha: Oh, I see! How forward of me to ask such a question.
======================================================================

4) To train at Biron Monastery.

Dr. Usha: You don't say! I would think your fighting skills were
already sufficiently advanced!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dr. Usha: Yes, well, if those are your intentions, then it's fine with
me. Here's what I'll do! I'm going to write a book about the life of
our great liberator! I will remain in Rim Elm to gather material for my
book until you return, Vahn.

{Dr. Usha looks at Val and Nene}

Dr. Usha: Those two there. They must be your family, Vahn?

{Val nods and Nene comes out of hiding from behind Vahn}

Dr. Usha: Pardon me for disturbing your saying farewell to Vahn. Tell
me everything outside.

{Dr. Usha stops at the exit of the pit and looks at Val and Nene}

Val: What a character you are, Dr. Usha! Ha ha! Very well. I will tell
you what you want to know.

{Val begins to walk out with Dr. Usha but stops}

Val: I won't wait to see you off, Vahn. So take care, my son.

{Val heads off}

Nene: I'm sure you'll be alright, but take care anyway. Good luck!

{Nene runs off to join her father}
----------------------------------------------------------------------

{Vahn exits the Genesis Tree pit and speaks to Val and Dr. Usha,
learning about the miracle of the Ra-Seru and the future of the Seru on
Legaia}

Val: Ah, Vahn. I was just talking with Dr. Usha. We were talking about
how the Ra-Seru's amazing powers healed my legs...And how everyone in
the village feels as if they've been reborn. The Ra-Seru have given us
a new lease on life. It's a miracle we'll never stop talking about.

{Vahn speaks to Dr. Usha}

Dr. Usha: Fascinating. A most fascinating story. Vahn, Val is a
wonderful father, and Nene is a wonderful sister. But Vahn, your face
says you want to ask me about the world outside the village.

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Dr. Usha: Oh? So I was wrong? I must be getting senile. Either way,
Vahn, it is something you must see with your own eyes.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Dr. Usha: Ah-ha! So you do want to know about the world outside Rim
Elm! My intuition was right, as usual. Well, then, I will make it
brief. First of all, you do know that no more Seru will be created
anymore, yes? Our good friends in Sol are still experimenting, but it's
no use. With Uru Mais destroyed and the Seru-kai gone, no new Seru will
ever appear again. What's more, the Seru already here are gradually
losing their power. My calculations show that most of the Seru will die
off in the next year or so. We avoided the Seru in the age of the Mist,
but losing them completely is another matter. The Soren, the flying
carts and others who relied on the Seru may return to the Stone Age.
But, Vahn! I have faith in human potential. The human race will never
die out, as long as we have people like you to carry on Tieg's wishes.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{After hearing about the miracle of the Ra-Seru and the future of the
Seru, Vahn prepares to leave Rim Elm, to fulfill whichever goal he told
Dr. Usha in the Genesis Tree pit. The Village Elder blocks Rim Elm's
exit}

Village Elder: Hello, Vahn. So you are ready to leave? Well, I have
something to ask you. After the village was rescued from Juggernaut,
and Noa left the village...Noa was carrying a baby, wasn't she? Noa
refused to tell me who the baby was, but that was her brother, Cort,
wasn't it?

1) I...don't know.
2) Yes, I think that was Cort.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) I...don't know.

Village Elder: If you don't want to talk about it, I understand. Just
forget the whole thing.
======================================================================

2) Yes, I think that was Cort

Village Elder: As I suspected.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Village Elder: Cort, too, must have been reborn when we received new
life from the Ra-Seru. I know that it was Cort who brought the Mist
into the world. And I also know that Cort is Noa's only blood relative.
Noa must have been trying to leave with Cort unnoticed. She must have
decided to raise Cort by herself. Noa is quite a young woman.

Village Elder: Hmm...Vahn, are you about to leave Rim Elm?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Village Elder: There is no hurry. If you feel sad about leaving, then
say goodbye to everyone first.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Village Elder: Have you said goodbye to everyone in Rim Elm?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Village Elder: There is no hurry. If you feel sad about leaving, then
say goodbye to everyone first.
======================================================================

a. Yes

(Village Elder opens the gate)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Village Elder: Good luck to you. See the distant lands, the rich world
for all humans!

[Depending on how Vahn answered Dr. Usha in the Genesis Tree Pit,
dialog and situations for certain supporting characters will change]

1) To thank the people who helped me.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn exits the Genesis Tree pit and walks over to Mei's house. Her
house is in the middle of being rebuilt, just like all of the other
houses in Rim Elm. The Wall is also being torn down}

Maya: Vahn, it's too bad about Songi, but I'm still grateful to you.
Please give my regards to Master Zopu. Good luck. Let me worry about
things here.

{Vahn speaks to Mei}

Mei: Vahn, I'll be honest with you. When I was inside Juggernaut, I
felt your warmth. And I was certain that you would come save me. That's
why I wasn't afraid. So please, Vahn, come back as soon as you can.
Because I...I care for you. Be careful, Vahn. I'll be waiting for you
to return.

{Vahn speaks to Ixis}

Ixis: You're traveling when everyone else is busy rebuilding Rim Elm.
You, celebrity type! A hero's life is pretty good, eh, Vahn? I'm just
joking, Vahn! Ha ha! Don't worry about Rim Elm. I'll take care of
everyone! Go do what you have to do! I'll turn Rim Elm into the kind of
place a hero like you won't be ashamed to call home!

{Vahn speaks to Nene}

Nene: I'm sure mother is happy for you.

{Vahn prepares to exit Rim Elm}

Everyone: Vahn!

{Vahn turns around to see all of the villagers waving at him, with Mei
and Maya at the front of the group}

Everyone: Vahn! Vahn! Goodbye, Vahn! We'll miss you! Good luck! Take
care! We'll be waiting for you! Remember, this is your home!

{Vahn steps toward the exit and then turns around and waves. Vahn takes
of running. The screen changes to the world map as Vahn heads through
Drake Kingdom}
======================================================================

2) To see the Mist-free world.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn exits the Genesis Tree pit and walks over to Mei's house. Her
house is in the middle of being rebuilt, just like all of the other
houses in Rim Elm. The Wall is also being torn down}

Maya: Vahn, before you go, go talk to Mei.

{Vahn finds Mei}

Mei: Vahn, so you want to see the world now that the Mist is gone...I
want to see the world, too! I want to go with you! Take me with you!

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Mei: Oh, thank you! This is the day I've been waiting for, the day we
finally get to travel together! I don't need to get ready, I'm ready to
leave right now! {Mei runs inside her place} Tee-hee! I'm so excited!
======================================================================

2) No

Mei: Thank you, Vahn. It's so nice of you to say that. But I'm tired of
always staying here and watching others leave the village! {Mei runs
inside her place} I'm going with you, Vahn. I'm going to see the world
with you!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Mei joins Vahn. Vahn and Mei decide to speak with everyone in the
village before leaving}

Maya: Don't worry about me. I'll be fine. But please, Vahn, look after
Mei. Don't be selfish towards Vahn, Mei! Good luck. Let me worry about
things here.

{Vahn speaks to Ixis}

Ixis: Going on a trip with a woman - Vahn, you heroes have it good! I'm
just joking, Vahn! Ha ha! Don't worry about Rim Elm. I'll take care of
everyone! Go do what you have to do! I'll turn Rim Elm into the kind of
place a hero like you won't be ashamed to call home!

{Vahn speaks to Nene}

Nene: I'm sure mother is happy for you.

{Vahn and Mei begin to head out}

Off-Screen:
Vahn!

{Vahn and Mei turn around to see everybody in the village prepare to
see them off, many of them waving goodbye}

Everyone:
Vahn! Vahn! Goodbye, Vahn! We'll miss you! Good luck! Take care! We'll
be waiting for you! Remember, this is your home!

{Vahn and Mei start walking out the village then turn around and look
back one last time before leaving Rim Elm. The screen changes to the
world map and Vahn and Mei start heading in the direction of Hunters
Spring}
======================================================================

3) To tell Noa my true feelings.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn exits the Genesis Tree pit and walks over to Ixis' house to see
Mei}

Mei: (Silence) Vahn, I have something to tell you. Vahn, I'm engaged to
marry Ixis.

1) You're what?!
2) That's wonderful! Congratulations!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) You're what?!

Mei: Tee-hee! Vahn, don't act so surprised! Aren't you going to
congratulate me? We plan to have the wedding right around the time
you'll be coming back from seeing Noa. I'm so happy right now! Tee-hee!
Be careful, Vahn. I'll be waiting for you to return.
======================================================================

2) That's wonderful! Congratulations!

Mei: Oh, thank you, Vahn! I'm glad you're happy for us! Vahn, you love
Noa, and you're going to tell her that, right? Maybe the four of us
could have a double wedding! I'm so happy right now! Tee-hee! Be
careful, Vahn. I'll be waiting for you to return.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn speaks with Ixis' mother}

Ixis' mother: Oh, I'm just so happy now...Oh, Vahn! I didn't know you
were there! Did Ixis tell you the good news? Oh, I'm so happy, I just
can't help sighing with joy! But isn't it amazing how much the world
can change once it starts changing?

{Vahn speaks with Ixis' father}

Ixis' Father: Vahn...Rei, Esto and Juno...I wish they were still alive
so I could tell them...Tell them that we were reborn when the Ra-Seru
gave us their lives at the end. That the Ra-Seru gave us new bodies
immune to injury and sickness. And I wish I could tell them that my
son, Ixis, is getting married. Thank you. Thanks to you and the Ra-
Seru, I can work hard like this.

{Vahn finds Ixis}

Ixis: Hey, Vahn! Did you talk to Mei?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Ixis: It's kind of embarrassing, but, well, that's how it is now! You
work on making Noa your girl. I'm sure that's what Mei wants, too!
======================================================================

2) No

Ixis: I know you asked! Don't lie! Ha ha! Women always choose a man to
stay by her side. A hunter nearby is better than a hero far away. You
work on making Noa your girl. I'm sure that's what Mei wants, too! I'll
turn Rim Elm into the kind of place a hero like you won't be ashamed to
call home!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn speaks with Maya}

Maya: To be honest, I had hoped that you would marry Mei, Vahn. But it's
out of my hands. I hope everything works out well for the both of you.
Good luck. Let me worry about things here.

{Vahn finds Nene}

Nene: Say hi to Noa for me.

{Vahn prepares to leave Rim Elm}

Everyone: Vahn!

{Vahn turns around to see everybody waiting to see him off. Ixis and
Mei are next to each other in front of the crowd}

Everyone: Vahn! Vahn! Goodbye, Vahn! We'll miss you! Good luck! Take
care! We'll be waiting for you! Remember, this is your home!

{Vahn walks outside the gate, turns around and waves, then runs
outside. The screen changes to the world map as Vahn journeys north}
======================================================================

4) To train at Biron Monastery.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn exits the Genesis Tree pit and walks over to Mei's house. Her
house is in the middle of being rebuilt, just like all of the other
houses in Rim Elm. The Wall is also being torn down}

Maya: I plan on visiting Biron Monastery one of these days, so train
hard! Good luck. Let me worry about things here.

{Vahn speaks to Mei}

Mei: Vahn, is it true you're going to train at Biron Monastery and
become a warrior-monk?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1)Yes

Mei: Oh. But you'll come back, right? You'll come back to Rim Elm,
won't you? That's O.K., you don't have to answer! I'll be waiting here
for you to return. After all, I'm used to waiting. Be careful, Vahn.
I'll be waiting for you to return.
======================================================================

2)No

Mei: Oh. So you'll be coming back to Rim Elm. That's good. Be careful,
Vahn. I'll be waiting for you to return.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{Vahn finds Ixis}

Ixis: And training at Biron? You sure are a serious guy! You'd better
watch out, or I'll take Mei for myself! I'm joking, Vahn! Ha ha ha!
Don't worry about Rim Elm. I'll take care of everyone! Go do what you
have to do! I'll turn Rim Elm into the kind of place a hero like you
won't be ashamed to call home!

{Vahn finds Tetsu}

Tetsu: So you wish to train further at Biron. "Forget not war even in
times of peace," is that it? Your dedication is admirable! Someday, I,
too, plan to go to Biron. I'll ask you to spar with me then! I'll be
praying for your safe journey.

{Vahn finds Nene}

Nene: Say hi to Gala for me.

{Vahn prepares to leave Rim Elm}

Everyone: Vahn!

{Vahn turns around to see all of the villagers except for Mei, Maya and
Ixis standing behind him, many of them waving}

Everyone: Vahn! Vahn! Goodbye, Vahn! We'll miss you! Good luck! Take
care! We'll be waiting for you! Remember, this is your home!

{Vahn steps toward the exit and then turns around and waves. Vahn takes
of running. The screen changes to the world map as Vahn heads toward
Biron Monastery}

hunter. It's so unfortunate he hurt his leg in that accident...I'm
sorry. Vahn, you must take good care of your father.

Wall Guard: No, no! Vahn, do not get too close to the Wall.

Woman on beach: The sea carries a fresh wind. From dawn till dusk, the
wind pushes back the Mist. Today, though, the wind behaves strangely. I
hope this is not a bad sign.

---------------------
Village Elder's House
---------------------

Old person by stove: Vahn, since you are to leave for the hunt
tomorrow... ...you must learn more about the Mist and the Seru.

Old man by table: Ah, it's you, Vahn. What do you want from an old
man like me? Do you want to ask me something?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Old man: Vahn, tomorrow you go out on the hunt. Watch out
for the Mist.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Old man: What do you want to ask me about?

a. Tell me about the Seru!
b. Tell me about the Mist!
c. Tell me about the Wall!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a. Tell me about the Seru!

Old man: The Seru...The Seru are like living armor. When one is worn
by a human, it becomes both weapon and tool. With the power of a Seru,
a man could carry a stone larger than himself, run faster than a wolf.
But the Mist brought an end to the age of benevolent Seru. The Seru
became cursed, evil. Vahn, never touch a Seru. The Seru are evil. Shall
I tell you about something else?
======================================================================

b. Tell me about the Mist!

Old man: The Mist itself poses no danger to us. But when
touched by the Mist, the Seru become demons - horrible, murdering
monsters! In the Mist, the Seru take on a will of their own and attack
people. But that is not all. The person who wears a Seru as a weapon
becomes possessed by Seru, and himself becomes a monster! Vahn,
tomorrow you will travel outside the Wall as one of the hunters. Now
listen. Beware of the Mist. We humans are no match for the Mist or for
the Seru monsters. When the Mist approaches, flee! That is the only way
to protect yourself from it. Shall I tell you about something else?
======================================================================

c. Tell me about the Wall!

Old man: Rim Elm is a remote village. The Mist that covers the Earth
seldom reaches this far. Somehow, we have managed to survive. However,
at night, the wind sometimes changes direction, and the Mist closes in
on us! To protect the village from the Mist, we have built the Wall. And
for more than ten years, the Wall has protected us. Shall I tell you
about something else?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old person by window: Vahn, tomorrow you go out to hunt. Watch out for
the Mist.

Village Elder: Ah, it's you, Vahn. I'm glad you came. Tomorrow you
become a hunter and must travel outside the village to hunt. I am sure
you can take care of yourself, but do be very careful!

-----------
Ixis' House
-----------

Ixis: Vahn, so I hear you're going out on the hunt tomorrow.

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Ixis: Hey, you're not being honest! Ha, ha! You can tell me the truth!
Admit it - You're glad to leave the village to hunt as one of the
adults, aren't you?
======================================================================

1) Yes

Ixis: You seem happy about it! You are happy about going outside the
village, aren't you? There's no one here but old people and kids. It's
so boring here!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ixis: Oh, it's so frustrating! I wish I had been born a little sooner.
Then I could be a hunter and see the world outside the village with
you. Vahn, I'm so jealous of you!

Ixis' Father: Oh, Vahn. Will you listen to what a pathetic man like me
has to say?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Ixis' Father: Oh, so no one wants to listen to a good-for-nothing like
me, eh?
======================================================================

1) Yes

Ixis' Father: You will? I'm glad. You're such a good child, Vahn. It's
a story about something that happened many years ago, when I was out on
the hunt. We caught much game. I was in high spirits - so happy that I
dropped my guard. Suddenly, the wind changed direction and the Mist
came. I thought we would escape...but it was too late. The Seru monsters
came from the Mist and attacked us. That's how I ended up like this. I
survived, but could never go out on the hunt again. Now listen, Vahn!
Never underestimate the mist! The Mist is a terrifying thing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ixis' Father: The Mist is horrible. Never underestimate the powers of
the Mist!

Ixis' Mother: He's always complaining. He used to be strong and tough,
but now...

Ixis' Mother: Oh! Vahn! I didn't know you were there! I was just
talking to myself, so don't tell my husband what I was saying.

Ixis' Mother: I wonder if we'll ever be happy again.

Lady Shopkeeper: (Sobbing) (Silence) Oh, little Vahn. You saw me
crying! How embarrassing. Long ago, I had a shop here. I sold many
different weapons. While I was cleaning, I began to remember those
days, and suddenly started to cry. Someday, if the Mist clears and all
the people come back, I'll be able to open my shop again. Vahn, you
must promise to shop at my store. Alright?

Lady Shopkeeper: Vahn, when the Mist clears and I open our store again,
come and shop here, OK?

Val: I'm sorry, Vahn, but my hands are full. I'll listen to what you

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Nene: Really? Well I didn't hear anything.
======================================================================

2) No

Nene: Ooh, you are so hopeless! You're going hunting tomorrow, and that
means you're going to be an adult, right? Well if you're an adult now,
you should mind your manners!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nene: Be nice to Mei, okay? Oh, if you're hungry, there should be
something in the cupboard.

Old Person: We will take care of Mei. Night is almost upon us. Vahn,
you must go home now.

Woman by stove: Juno's funeral is tomorrow morning. Vahn, don't worry
about Mei. We'll take care of her. You go home.

Mei: Father promised me...He promised to take me all over the world
once the Mist cleared. Father, you promised...

Narration: The blood and dirt has been wiped from Juno's body. Yet, a
fierce look remains on his face.

Woman on beach: The wind has changed direction! Night approaches. Soon
night will come, and bring with it the horrible Mist!

Tetsu: Vahn...It is unfortunate what happened to Juno. I know it pains
you, and I, too, am filled with anger. Try to be strong, Vahn. Please
give my regards to Mei.

Hunter by Wall: The Mist has grown stronger lately. I can just tell.

Hunter by logs: Blast it! When Juno was attacked by the Seru, I was
powerless. I...I stood by and let Juno die.

Hunter by Ixis' House: The people of Rim Elm cannot survive without
hunting. Yet the number of men of hunting age has dropped drastically.
Vahn, it's a difficult time, but be strong!

Old person by Ixis' House: Hunting and accidents seem to go hand in
hand. Still, I pity poor Mei.

Woman by cave: Vahn, go ahead and enter the cave. Inside you will find
the Memory Statue. The Memory Statue will remember things for
you...What you feel, what you experience with your body...everything.
Talk to the Memory Statue to save important memories.

Little boy by shop: I better go home it's getting dark. Daddy will be
angry with me.

Little girl by shop: Poor Juno. He was so strong! Vahn, the Mist is so
scary! I'm scared of all the monsters!

---------------------
Village Elder's House
---------------------

Old man by table: Juno isn't the first to die during the hunt! We have
lost many hunters to the Mist! The dangers of the hunt are known by
all. Yet we must hunt in order to live. For if we didn't bring back
game, the entire village would starve to death.

Old man by window: Who would have thought that brave Juno would lose
his life? Vahn, you must be beside yourself worrying about what will
happen during the hunt tomorrow.

Hunter: Vahn, I was just asking the Village Elder what to do about
tomorrow's hunt. As there is so little food in the village, of course
the hunt cannot be called off...Vahn, I will let you decide whether or
not to join us on the hunt.

Village Elder: (Silence) It is unbearably sad to see someone younger
than oneself die first. Old people such as us, with little time left on
this Earth...We can somehow bear to live in this world without hope.
But I am overcome with pity for you, Vahn, and the other children...
Those who must live out their long futures under these conditions. Vahn,
the village children like you very much. Please continue to look out for
them.

Ixis: What's wrong, Vahn? Why do you have such a pathetic look on your
face? Looking like that, you'll end up like Juno on the hunt tomorrow!
Darn! If I could go, I'd make mincemeat out of those Seru monsters!

Ixis' Mother: Why does he always complain? He should be thankful just
to be alive. Oh! Vahn! I didn't know you were there. I was just talking
to myself, so don't tell the others what I was saying.

Ixis' Father: Rei, Esto and Juno...Why did they have to die before me?
Why did they leave me here all alone?

everyone look so worried? I swear, Rim Elm is a village full of
cowards.

Hunter by Ixis' House: There's something out there. Something is
striking the Wall from the other side.

Hunter by logs: We built this Wall with our blood, sweat and tears! I'd
be a fool to stand by and watch it come down!

Middle-aged woman: If the Wall breaks, the Mist will enter the village
and the horrible Seru will come in!

Woman by Tetsu: For ten years the Wall has protected us. I've always
believed it could never collapse, but...I hope it doesn't fail us now
and allow the Mist to engulf the village.

Old person by cave: That is the sound of something hitting the Wall
from the outside!

Hunter by cave: The precious Wall that has protected Rim Elm - it could
never collapse!

Tetsu: I sense it...I sense the presence of evil outside the Wall.

Shall I teach you about weapons and armor?

Male shopkeeper: Well, if you already know, there is nothing for me to
say.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Male shopkeeper: First of all, there are four places to wear the weapons
and armor you acquire: head, arms, chest, legs. Next, an opponent can
strike high or low, so there are two types of defense: upper and lower
body.  Upper-body defensive power depends on the armor on your head and
torso. Lower-body defensive power depends on the armor on your torso
and legs. Attacking power depends on the weapons on your arms and legs.
Of course, newly acquired weapons and armor won't do you any good
unless you wear them.

powers to rid the world of the Mist. Hey, that sounds pretty cool.
Vahn, you are one lucky guy.

Ixis' Father: Listen, everybody! I saw a huge monster when the Wall
broke!

Val: (Silence) Vahn, you don't have to say anything. I'm just glad that
you've returned home safely.

---------------------
Village Elder's House
---------------------

Old Man by table: Biron Monastery is beyond the river to the north of
Rim Elm. The teachings of Biron disavow the Seru. That's why I think
the Monastery still survives.

Old person by stove: The scouts say that the Mist is only gone from the
area around the village. It looks like the power of the Genesis Tree
doesn't extend that far. Vahn, if you're going outside, watch out for
the Mist.

Mei: Can I ask, Vahn? What happened to the Hunter Clothes, the ones I
made you?

1) Well, actually I, um...
2) I sold it for money.
3) I'm sorry. A monster stole it.
4) I didn't need it and threw it away.

Hunter 1: Vahn, you should talk to Lezam.

Hunter 2: It's been a while since I ran across someone outside the
village.

Hunter 3: If you want to know about Lezam, ask Lezam himself.

Hunter 4: When we came to the spring as we always do, Lezam was here.

Hunter 5: Vahn, listen to what Lezam has to say!

Lezam: Before departing, King Drake made a decision of great consequence.
One that is difficult to discuss. If you wish to know the
consequences of that decision...Then go to Drake Castle and see for
yourself.

Hunter 5: The Genesis Tree has driven all the Mist away. Now, if only
the waters of the river to the east would subside, we could go even
farther to hunt.

Hunter 4: So Lezam was an envoy of King Drake. Speaking of King
Drake...He is the one who used to control the water gate upstream.

Hunter 3: Vahn, I have some advice for you. Will you lend me your ear?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Hunter 3: You don't want my advice? Hmmph. I was just going to tell you
something for your own good.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Hunter 3: Now, you may have powers that we don't because of that Ra-
Seru and all, but...Drake Castle up ahead is just crawling with the
most horrible Seru monsters! Listen! These are the hunters' rules. Rule
1: Always have the proper equipment. If you think you don't have the
right weapons or armor, then head right back to Rim Elm! You can still
buy whatever type of equipment you need at the shops there. Hunters'
Rule Number 2: A trip without healing medicine is a trip to the next
world! When going to a strange place, always take at least 5 or 6
healing leaves.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hunter 2: Vahn, where are you going now?

1) Biron Monastery
2) Drake Castle
3) I can't tell you
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Biron Monastery

Hunter 2: What? Biron Monastery? Well, you've got quite a journey ahead
of you! To get to Biron, you must cross the river to the east and head
northeast, but...
======================================================================

2) Drake Castle

Hunter 2: Oh, so you're going there for Lezam, huh? Drake Castle is
north of the spring.
======================================================================

3) I can't tell you

Hunter 2: Ah, a secret mission! What is it, a secret mission for the
Ra-Seru? That's great! Vahn, you're a mighty warrior now!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hunter 1: Vahn, before going outside, drink the water at the drinking
fountain by the spring. Your whole body will be re-energized!

Narration: Clean water flows from the spring. Do you wish to drink this
water?

1) Yes
2) No

King Drake: The Mist still flows all over the world. Be very, very

1) Yes
2) No

Drake's Room

Noblewoman by door: When King Drake first told us of his plan to submit
to the Seru...To be honest, I was very afraid. But now I am glad that I
trusted in King Drake.

Noblewoman at north end: Before the Mist came here, I heard a
rumor... ...that the Mist comes from devices called Mist Generators
located all over the world.

-------------------------------
Hallway in front of Throne Room
-------------------------------

Little Boy on right: Vahn, Noa! Go downstairs and go outside the castle!
There are a lot of stores there now.

Little Boy on left: We've been surrounded by the Mist for ten years. I'm
glad I didn't grow up without even knowing it.

------------------
Mountain Gate Room
------------------

Little girl: Uh-huh! You can see Mt. Rikuroa and the Genesis Tree from
here!

Knight: This exit leads to Mt. Rikuroa. Vahn, are you going to retrieve
something you forgot there?

Noblewoman: Drake Castle was saved by the immaculate power of Mt.
Rikuroa's Genesis Tree.

--------------
Star Gate Room
--------------

Noblewoman by old person: We put on Seru, got in the dungeon, then the
Mist came. That's all I remember. I remember almost nothing about that
period. It was like a long nightmare.

Old person: When I was a Seru monster, it was almost like being dead.
But you liberated us from death. You gave us a fresh start on life.

Court Professor: Do you know about the warrior-monks of Biron?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Court Professor: The teachings of Biron forbid the use of Seru and
promote physical and mental discipline. The warrior-monks of Biron were
sent all over the world to spread those teachings. There was one here in
Drake Castle, but when the King ordered everyone to wear a Seru...and
submit to the Mist's madness, he refused, and went back to the Biron
Monastery. His name was...Kin, or something like that. He knew many
fighting techniques.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Court Professor: I'm impressed. So young, yet so knowledgeable.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

--------------------
Court Professor Room
--------------------

Court Professor by door: I am the Court Professor. I am like a scientist
with a castle. It is my job to advise King Drake. I was the one who
devised the plan to wear Seru and surrender to the Mist.

Court Professor at table's left side: There are indeed many legends of
the Genesis Trees. That they are not of the human world, that they will
flower when the world is in danger...Come to think of it, I have also
heard that the Genesis Trees are cradles of holy Seru.

Court Professor at southwest: We did determine that the Genesis Tree at
Mt. Rikuroa has the power to drive back the Mist. Unfortunately, however,
there is no guarantee that the power will last forever. The only real
solution is to destroy its source, the Mist Generator in the northeast.

Court Professor south of table: Vahn, the creature that attacked Rim Elm
said his name was Zeto. Hmm. The name sounds familiar, but I can't
remember where I heard it.

Noblewoman: Um...Vahn, can I ask you something? Did you read this diary
while I was in the Mist?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Noblewoman: Oh, good. I would be too embarrassed to live if anyone read
what was in there.
======================================================================
1) Yes

Noblewoman: H-How could you? I'm sorry. I guess I should have expected
that. But please! Don't tell anyone what you read in my diary!

Noblewoman: This diary is our secret!

----------------------
Lightning Gate Hallway
----------------------

Noblewoman: Do the Ra-Seru really have the power to awaken the Genesis
Trees?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Noblewoman: Oh, maybe I was wrong.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Noblewoman: Well then, you might like to know that Drake Kingdom has
four Genesis Trees, they say. One in Rim Elm. Another at Mt. Rikuroa.
The other two are in the forest north of the Biron Monastery.

Man by bookcase: Before the Mist came, there was a Biron monk in the
castle who taught us many Arts. After the Mist came, perhaps he was
killed by the Seru. He left us a keepsake, a book called "The Secrets of
Biron." Do you wish to read it?

1) Yes, let me read it!
2) It doesn't interest me.
3) May I keep it?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) It doesn't interest me.

Man: I see. Well, you may come back to read this any time you wish.

3) May I keep it?

Man: That...I cannot do. We are indebted to you for saving Drake Castle,
but...This is our only memento of the deceased Biron monk. I cannot give
it to you. Of course, you may read it if you wish.

they are eating just too much.

Man: Now that the Mist is gone, I suppose it's safe for us to use Seru

just can't bring myself to wear one.

Noblewoman: By the King's orders, I threw all the Seru in the castle
into the river.

--------------------------------

Noblewoman: Before the Mist came here, I heard a troubling
rumor... ...that the Mist comes from devices called Mist Generators

Man: Yeah, we got rid of that cage!

to close the water gate outside.

Noblewoman: Do you know Lezam, the one who went to tell Rim Elm about
the Mist?

1) Yes

be enough. Before you go, buy weapons and armor to protect yourself and
things to heal your bodies.

Court Professor: To resume business upon recovering from the nightmare
of the Mist...That family sure is tough.

Noblewoman near Court Professor: To get to the Sebucus Islands in the
north, head northeast and follow the river upstream.

Man near Arms Shop: Hey! Anyone know where my wallet went?!

Middle-aged woman: The stores reopened, but all they have are weapons,
armor - things for fighting and killing! I want fresh meat and
vegetables. Hmmf!

Knight (right side): Be careful! The world is full of weird Seru
monsters!

Knight (left side): You can use the Water Key King Drake gave you to
stop the river's flow. Cross the river and go east along the northern
mountains. You'll come to Biron Monastery.

Little Boy: Hooray, hooray! A customer! Daddy, we have a customer!

Man by Inn: Umm, you should be able to stay in the back room of the
castle for free. But if you want to spend your money, I won't stop you.

Songi: The old-fashioned teachings of Biron may forbid the wearing of
Seru...But if I can become stronger quickly, then you better believe I'm
going to wear one! If you see an extra Seru, then let me know...in
secret! When I get one, then watch out, Master Teacher! Ha, ha, ha, ha!

I'm not talented like Master Teacher or Songi.

back in Rim Elm. But on the other hand...At Biron, Master Teacher and
Songi are like sons to Maya.

Monk guarding northern doors: Yes, sir! Vahn, Noa...Don't tell me you're
leaving! Are you?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Monk: Good! Master Zopu will be here shortly. Until then, please mingle
with the others.

1) Yes

Monk: Please...wait a moment. Master Zopu will be here shortly. Until
then, I can't let the stars of the party leave. Please stay and converse
with the others.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Woman by table: This is supposed to be a party, but everyone is so
serious.

Woman (southeast): Songi is always watching and studying Master Teacher.
To think that the two of them were once such good friends. Maya is very
concerned, and often comes to me to talk about it.

Monk (lower right end of table): Yes, sir! Maya is very cheerful and
merry when she speaks, but sometimes she seems sad and lost in thought.
Perhaps she is thinking of her homeland of Rim Elm.

Monk (below Songi): Yes, sir! If you're looking for Maya, she went into
the shrine earlier, looking downcast.

Monk (training next to woman): Yes, sir! This is such a fun party. When
the Mist clears, we'll have even more fun.

Monk next to monk training: Yes, sir! Everyone is talking about the
great deeds of you two.

Monk guarding northern doors (after Zopu arrives): Yes, sir! Thank you
for waiting. Master Zopu is here now.

been very distressed.

you have to go through the opposite door.

Monk guarding door to West Voz Forest: Yes, sir! The wait is over! West
Voz Forest lies northwest of here. Good luck! (Door opens)

Maya: Vahn, Noa. It's about Rim Elm. Last night I was thinking. About
Mei...About Juno. And about something else. I want to have a long talk
with you, but now the Genesis Tree is more important. Let's talk later,
after you come back. Well, then. Good luck! I'll be praying for your

Sky Gardens

Woman: The Sky Gardens' plants are even more vibrant than they were
before the Mist came. It must be because you awakened the Genesis Tree!

Man in Sky Gardens: What a thrill! Imagine, to witness the birth of a
new legend!

------------------------
Main Building Dance Hall
------------------------

Green-haired dancer: Vahn! Vahn! Vahn! Vahn is tough! Not afraid to
fight! Come on, everyone, let's dance!

Blue-haired dancer: Noa! Noa! Noa! Noa is red-hot! Swift like the wind!
We made up this song and dance to show our appreciation!

Red-haired dancer: Gala! Gala! Gala! The fighting monk! Not afraid of
anyone! Oh, the fighting monk. He is just so cool!

Man near check-in counter: The Mist came on the day before our wedding!
Who could have imagined anything like this...But now I'm just so happy
that she's safe.

Woman near check-in counter: Once things settle down, I want us to have
a proper wedding. I hope that you brave Ra-Seru can make that possible!

Green-haired man by check-in counter: The Sky Gardens were a famous
tourist attraction. When the Mist is finally gone from the earth...I'm
sure many tourists will come to see the Genesis Tree that you revived
for us.

Little boy by south exit: Ah, the Ra-Seru heroes! I'm so glad to finally
meet you! We were just having a celebration! Everyone is so happy! This
is the happiest day of my entire life!

Little boy by south exit: Is the Mist still outside the town?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Little boy: That makes Vahn a liar, then.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Little boy: Too bad. If the Genesis Tree were stronger, maybe it could
have cleared a larger area.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Man by table: Noa is the cutest girl in the whole world!

Woman at far left: The Mist attacked without warning! We had no time to
prepare at all! That's why that nightmare...that catastrophe occurred
when the Mist came. But thanks to you, we're saved. Thank you so much!

Man at far left: Have you been to the cafe?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Man: You haven't? Well, please go there and try to cheer those guys up,

forgive them. They're bitter because they lost so many family members
and friends.

Woman: Speaking of which, Zalan, who's in the southwest part of town,

are still out there, right?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mayor: Well, well. Thank you so much for stopping by. Now I'm sure my
limited knowledge is probably of no use to someone like you, but...If
you need to know something, then just look for Hari. They say Hari knows
just about everything.

Town Square

Old person (left of main building entrance): Here on the Sebucus Islands,
in addition to the Sky Gardens, there's also a Genesis Tree. I think
it's on a mountain far to the north.

Old person next to little girl: Did you meet Zalan?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Old person: Zalan is a jeweler in this town. He's been through a lot.
You should go and try to cheer him up.
======================================================================

Old person: Zalan must be beside himself.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Little girl by old person: If Hari were here in Jeremi...Hey, you do
know who Hari is, right?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Little girl: Hari is a living legend! He lives in the world of dreams
and tells of the past, present, and future.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Little girl: Maybe we could have escaped the Mist, if Hari had
prophesied our future.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Woman (front of northeast building): Being possessed by the Seru was
like a long nightmare. Thank you so much, all of you!

Man next to town sign: Have you been to Vidna, to the north?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Man: I've heard it's the best resort area in the world! I really want to
go there some day.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Man: Oh. It's a beautiful place, famous for its hot springs. When the
Mist disappears from this area, I want to go there myself!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Woman by town sign: We survived somehow, but...Some people disappeared
during the ten years we were in the Mist. They must have been killed
while possessed by the Seru.

Little boy in center of town: Yeah! Hooray! Hooray for the brave Ra-Seru!

---------------
Northeast House
---------------

Little boy: When, um, I was in the Mist, I was so lonely, and I was
scared, too! But when I woke up, Mommy and Daddy were right there next
to me, so I was really happy!

Mommy: On that day, the Mist suddenly flowed into town from the
northwest. The origin of the Mist must lie beyond the sea.

Daddy: I hear that you rid all of Drake Kingdom of the Mist. What a
wonderful deed you have done. Please! Drive the Mist from the Sebucus
Islands in the same way!

Weapon and Item Shop

Peddler: Welcome, brave Ra-Seru heroes. What can I get for you?
(Menu Screen) I'm so sorry. I know you are all heroes, but I am running
a business here...

Man walking around: If we went outside, we'd get eaten by those Seru, no
matter what kind of weapons we had.

Arms Dealer: Welcome, brave Ra-Seru wearers! What can I get for you?
(Menu Screen) I'm so sorry. I know you are all heroes, but I am running
a business here...

Little boy: Oh, Vahn! When I grow up, I want to be a brave warrior like
you!

Middle-aged woman: My husband says that no matter what happens, you can
always count on money. I know he just wants our business to succeed, but
who's going to buy weapons for fighting now?

------------
Zalan's Shop
------------

Zalan: My wife and son are in Vidna. I hope they are safe. Hopefully
they'll get the letter I entrusted you heroes with.

Zalan (After visiting Pepe): If you see my son, tell him that I want to
see him as soon as the Mist goes away.

Cafe

Man sitting at southwest table: Hmmf! This tastes bad. None of it's any
good!

Man sitting at southeast table: Sorry, but right now I don't feel like
talking to anyone.

Man by southeast table: He lost his girlfriend to the Mist. I'm trying
to cheer him up. Hey, there is no way you could have killed your
girlfriend when you were a Seru monster! So stop brooding!

Woman by northeast table: Do you know Zalan?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Woman: He was a good jeweler. They say he has a lot of different jewels.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Woman: He knows everything there is to know about jewels.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old woman at northwest table: My husband says our son died, but I don't
see how that's possible. I mean, before the Mist invaded our town, he
was so vibrant! How could he be dead?

Old man at northwest table: The Mist went away and I'm human again, but
my poor son is gone. He must have died while we were all possessed by
the Seru.

Man in front of bar counter: When the Mist went away and I woke up, my
wife and children were gone. I would have been better off spending
eternity in the Mist, possessed by those Seru!

Bartender: After the Mist came, we were in a dreamlike state. It seemed
brief, yet an eternity at the same time. But when we awakened from the
Mist, so much time had gone by. Those who didn't lose any loved ones
during those years are dancing here now, but...Those who lost someone to
the Mist are here drinking!

Bearded drunk: Hmmf! I bet you think I'm just some washed up bum, don't
you?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Bearded drunk: Well you're right! I am a bum!
======================================================================

2) No

Bearded drunk: Ah, so you do understand. You're smart. You're right. I
may look like this now, but once I trained at Biron. But then again, I
left there because I couldn't take the pressure of training. If you want,
I can teach you some Arts.

1) Teach Vahn the Art!
2) Teach Noa the Art!
3) Teach Gala the Art!
4) Who wants to learn from a bum!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Teach Vahn the Art!

a. If Vahn already knows the Art Cross-Kick
b. If Vahn does not know the Art Cross-Kick
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

want to learn more Arts?
======================================================================

4) Who wants to learn from a bum!

Bearded Drunk: Hey, don't disrespect someone just 'cause he's a bum!

Bearded Drunk: What? Did you come here to learn Arts from a bum?

Pianist: Did you ever come here before the Mist cleared?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Pianist: Oh, I see. That's OK. Don't worry about it.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Pianist: Really? Well then, maybe you can tell me something. When I was
a Seru monster, did I do something terrible, something unspeakable?

a. Yes
b. No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Pianist: Oh, good! I'm so relieved! I thought I might have done
something to be ashamed of!

a. Yes

Pianist: What? I...I did...I did that?! Oh no! No! No! Noooooo! I can't
go on! I can't stand it!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pianist: Darn it! Don't you understand! It's all over for me! Over!

City Grounds

Bearded man by entrance: Well, what do you know! You're my first
customers since the Mist came!

Woman next to northeast windmill: Do you know why the Mist doesn't come
into this town?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Woman: So you do, eh?
======================================================================

2) No

Woman: Vidna is full of windmills. The strong wind they generate blows
the Mist away.

Tour guide: Before the Mist came, there were plenty of tourists in town,
and I was a tour guide. If you want, I'll give you guys a tour. How
'bout it?

1) We want to see Vidna!
2) We want to see Octam!
3) Tell us about Hari!
4) Na, forget it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) We want to see Vidna!

Tour Guide: OK, a tour of Vidna it is! I'll do it for 100G. But you
gotta pay cash, OK?

a. OK
b. No way
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No way

Tour Guide: Hey, don't think you can hear my stories for free! I'm a
professional tour guide! Giving free tours goes against my professional
code of ethics.
======================================================================

a. OK

Tour Guide: Alright, it's a deal! I'd like to welcome you all to Vidna.
Enjoy your stay! As you know, Vidna has a lot of geothermal energy. It's
a town of hot springs and windmills. 138 years ago, Mayor Molina saw the
value of this geothermal energy...and developed a tourism industry based
on the area's natural beauty. Vidna became famous as a paradise on earth
that everyone wanted to visit. People came from all over Legaia for the
hot springs. In fact, Vidna's slogan was: "Just as Vidna's underground
heat will keep the windmills turning...and the hot springs hot forever,
no love borne here will ever die." In other words, they thought that
Vidna's prosperity would last forever. Well, that's it. A pretty
professional tour, eh? Do you want another tour?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) We want to see Octam!

Tour Guide: OK, a tour of Octam it is! I'll do it for 100G. But you
gotta pay cash, OK?

a. OK
b. No way
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No way

(Same response as above)
======================================================================

a. OK

Tour Guide: Ah, Octam...I've been there many times as a tour conductor.
Here we go. Enjoy the tour! Ladies and gentlemen, here we are, the
eternal city of Octam! Octam, situated north of Vidna, was once a hub of
flying wagon transport. It's also famous for the Temple of Rem, which is
dedicated to Rem, the god of fate. Here, flying wagons travel overhead
and the Temple of Rem sleeps deep underground. Octam is also famous for
Hari, the living god of the Temple of Rem. You know the saying, "See
Octam and die," right? Well, I'm sure anyone could die happy once
they've heard the prophecy of Hari. Well, that's it. A pretty
professional tour, eh? Do you want another tour?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3) Tell us about Hari!

Tour Guide: Do I know about Hari? Of course I do! And for 100G cash,
I'll tell you all about him.

a. OK
b. No way
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No way

(same response as above)
======================================================================

a. OK

OK

Tour Guide: This isn't really a tour, so I'll keep it brief. Hari is
said to be the living god of the Temple of Rem. Some say he's 1,000 or
even 2,000 years old. Frankly I have trouble believing that a human
being could live that long. They also say that Hari only appears before
the temple priestess and the Mayor of Octam. But if you ask me, I doubt
he even exists. But if Hari really is a divine prophet...he could at
least tell me if I'll ever get work as a tour guide again. Ha ha ha!
Well, is there anything else?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4) Na, forget it.

Tour Guide: (Sigh!) I wish I could do some tours before the world comes
to an end.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tour guide: Ah, so you want me to tell you more about this area, eh?

Woman by Item Shop: Before the Mist came, this was the world's best
resort area. We had visitors from all over. Pepe lives behind the hot
spring. He came with his mother and got stuck here.

Man in front of weapon shop: They say that the Seru turn savage and
possess people when touched by the Mist. But here, there's no Mist, so
you can wear Seru safely. Of course, there's no need for them.

Old Man in front of hot spring lodge: You're a new face. We don't get
many visitors from afar. So, have you bathed in the hot spring?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Old man: Oh, that won't do! How can you come to Vidna without bathing in
the hot springs here? The hot springs aren't just an attraction. They're
the town's lifeblood. Go bathe in them! Bathe in the hot springs and
refresh yourselves.

1) Yes

Old man: Good! Before the Mist covered the world, many travelers would
come here to enjoy the waters.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old person between the two houses: What a troublemaker that Danpas is!
Saying strange things and scaring everyone.

Innkeeper: Welcome! The rate here is 200G per night. Do you want to

======================================================================

1) Yes

Innkeeper: 200G even! Thank you! Show these three guests to their room,
please! Enjoy your stay!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Woman by table: If you want to know about Octam, I can tell you for free.

1) OK
2) No, thanks.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No, thanks.

Woman: Oh, alright. That's fine with me.
======================================================================

1) OK

Woman: There were many things in Octam. What do you want to know about?

a. About the flying wagons
b. About the Temple of Rem
c. Where Octam is
d. Forget about it
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) About the flying wagons

Woman: Octam was once a hub of transportation, and the flying wagons
were used for transport. These wagons were moved by large Seru. People
would ride them and travel east to Karisto. I'm not busy now, so I can
tell you more. What do you want to hear about?
======================================================================

2) About the Temple of Rem

Woman: The Temple of Rem is a huge temple located deep inside Octam. Now,
Rem is the god of time, right? Well, this person called Hari would tell
everyone the prophecies of Rem. People used to say that if you had a
strange dream, you should tell Hari. I'm not busy now, so I can tell you
more. What do you want to hear about?
======================================================================

3) Where Octam is

Woman: You want to know where Octam is even though you can't go outside
because of the Mist? How silly! Oh, well. I'll tell you. First, go north
and cross the bridge, then follow the coast southeast. You'll see a
peninsula sticking out into the sea. Octam is at the tip of that
peninsula. I'm not busy now, so I can tell you more. What do you want to
hear about?
======================================================================

4) Forget about it.

Woman: Oh, alright. That's fine with me.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hunter: Hey, you guys know about the Gate of Shadows?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Hunter: Oh, yeah? Nevermind, then.
======================================================================

2) No

Hunter: The Gate of Shadows is an ancient ruin located east of Octam.
It's called a gate, but there are no roads there leading anywhere. Some
say an ancient treasure is hidden there, but nobody knows for sure. If
only the Mist weren't there, I'd go check things out myself.

Man at left: There's no Mist in Vidna, so you can wear Seru safely. But,
there's really no use for them.

Man in front of sales desk: Hey, you guys are wearing nice Seru. Where
did you get those? (Silence) Whew! Man, I have had enough!

Old man: Well, well. Don't get many visitors. This is the machine room.
Hot, eh?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Old man: Oh, yeah? Ha ha! You don't have to act so tough! Besides, it's
not healthy!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Old man: Hot water and steam comes shooting up from inside the earth. We
use it to power the windmills. The windmills were used to cool things
off for the tourists. We also found another use for 'em! As you can see,
Vidna will never have to worry about the Mist as long as there's hot
spring water.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2nd Floor Basement

Bearded man: Hey, be careful! That water is hot! Stick your foot in
there and you'll get burned big time!

a. Vahn runs in water after speaking with man
b. Vahn runs in water without speaking to the man

a. Vahn runs in water after speaking with man

Bearded man: See, I told you! The water's hot, I said! Even so...You
should speak up! If it's hot, then say so!
======================================================================

b. Vahn runs in water without speaking to the man

Bearded man: See, I told you! The water's hot, I said!

Noa: No you didn't! You didn't say that!

Bearded man: I didn't? Well, it serves you right for not asking. Hmmf.

1) Yes

Sashia: Go to the Temple of Rem! See the four Books of Prophecy! When
you have seen them all, The secret will be clear! A brave Ra-Seru will
acquire a great key, the Star Pearl!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Monk farthest left: Sir! I hear Hari is an amazing man. I would like to
go to Octam myself!

Monk 2nd from left: Sir! Sashia has been waiting for you for more than
10 years.

Monk 2nd from right: Sir! Is Master Zopu of Biron Monastery well?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes

Monk: That's good. I am relieved to hear that.
======================================================================

2) No

Monk: Oh, is that what happened? So Master Zopu also faces many trials
and tribulations.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Monk farthest right: Sir! We were traveling the world, spreading the
teachings of Biron. When the Mist came, this is where we were. We barely
escaped death!

Worker on stairs: Mr. Danpas is strange, but he's a very rich man.

Worker walking around: The shelter's completed and ready anytime.

Worker on elevator: The windmills stopping? That could never happen.

Danpas: Better safe than sorry, that's my policy!

he's a little strange.

It's really hot inside, but the machines that move the windmills are

Man with fishing gear: It's been 10 years since the Mist came, and the
outside world is in a horrible state...But in peaceful Vidna, things are
downright boring. I wonder if something exciting will happen.

Narration: This is a fishing tackle set. It's pretty old.

Man with fishing gear: But in peaceful Vidna, things are downright

fishing tackle, eh? If that's what you want, I'll give it to you. I'm
tired of fishing anyway.

Narration: Vahn now has the fishing tackle set.

Woman in bathing suit: Vidna is a nice town, but it's not very exciting.

Little Boy: Good. Then I shall sing for you.

The stars' silent tears. The moon's shining smile. A ship of dreams
sails the Milky Way. Look, now, there it is. The Gate of Shadows. Hari
waits there. Hari has one heart, but Hari has three faces. Hari has
three mouths. Hari dreams three dreams.

That is all.

Pepe (before delivering letter): I was born in Jeremi, a town south of
here. My father is still there, as far as I know. My father's name is
Zalan. He's a jeweler. Sigh! If only the Mist would go away, I could go
to Jeremi and see my father...

Pepe (after delivering letter): My mother died loving my father. I hated
the Mist for taking her from him.

Woman by front desk: It's boring not being able to leave town, but I'm

Man behind desk: I used to charge people to bathe here, but it's too
much of a hassle now, so you can go for free. Stay in for as long as you
want. You'll feel refreshed!

Bearded man: Hey, kid. Here, take this. Play a game on this machine.
Narration: Vahn now has ten coins.
Bearded Man: If you want to play a game, Go to the machine and drop the
coin in.

1) Yes

Mist is really gone, then Hari would have told us. Tell the truth! Is

Woman: I knew it. The Mist isn't gone after all. That means we must go

Old woman by Inn: Yes, it has been some time since we moved here. I
wonder if we'll ever get to see the sun again...

Old man by Inn: Stay on guard! When the shaking starts, run for cover!
That's the slogan for this week!

flying Seru and pull flying carts.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Crewman at east side: It's so frustrating! Above us is our dear town of
Octam, yet...The town's been dead for over 10 years because of that
blasted Mist! I loved that town so much.

Crewman by table: We flew a direct route to Karisto Kingdom, over
mountains and valleys...Ah, if that Mist would clear, I'd take you there
in a flying cart!

Old woman: We've been living in this dark underground place for more
than 10 years! I want to see blue skies!

Old man: First I got run out of my surface home, now the earthquake
destroys my underground home.

Little Boy: The sky, the clouds, the stars, the rain, night and day, the
wind, the sea, the flowers...Mommy and Grandma talk about all these
things, but I don't really understand.

Mommy: This child was born and raised underground, and doesn't know

I'm going to die I want to die in the outside world!

Nun: Hari hears the messages of the god Rem. Those prophecies of Hari
enabled the people of Octam to escape the threat of the Mist.

Priestess closest to entrance: I'm worried about Hari. It's been 5 years
since he woke last. He's never slept this long before!

Priestess east of staircase: Hari is sleeping using the ancient secret
technique known as Time Grasping. Hari wakes only when he receives the
sacred words of Rem.

Priestess by bookcase: I don't know what business brought you here...But
this is Hari's bedroom, the Palace of Meditation. Bad manners or
barbaric behavior is prohibited.

-----------------------------
Palace of Meditation Basement

Priestess: I know we are in danger, but all we can do is pray.

Nun: If you try to awaken Hari, his spirit will remain in the distant
world, they say. So no one - no matter whom he may be - may ever
approach Hari while he sleeps.

Nun: W-What are you doing? It is forbidden to talk to Hari while he
sleeps! Leave here immediately!

Hunter: Ah, the memories. This is the elevator we all took to get down
here when we fled the Mist. That was more than 10 years ago...

Woman by elevator: This elevator could take me back to my home town of
Octam. Octam is so close - that's why it feels so hopelessly far away.

Guard: I apologize, but this elevator is restricted, under orders of the
mayor.

Would you bring me some Spring Salts from Vidna? That's a town known for
its hot springs. I am prepared to reward you. I hope you can do this for

Bearded man by elevator: What's going on here? The hot spring water
suddenly turned cold! The windmills are stopped. There is nothing to

underground!

Mrs. Danpas: This shelter saved a lot of people in Vidna from the Mist.
My husband, Danpas, he built the shelter, but later on...he went outside
to look for people who didn't make it, and never came back! It's just
not fair.

Old woman: I'm just an old hag who was badmouthing Danpas. Now I've
learned my lesson! Danpas had great foresight!

Then the Mist came, and then those Seru!

Peddler: What a catastrophe! But who would think everyone would be saved

City Grounds

Little girl by Inn: I don't want to grow up! 'Cause if I do, I'll have
to be a bride of the Seru!

Old man by Inn: The innkeeper's daughter was summoned by Saryu. Poor,
poor girl.

Man in front of weapon shop: "Brides of Seru"? Ha! The word "bride"
sounds nice, but all it is is human sacrifice!

Man next to checkpoint signs: You guys are wearing weird Seru!
Juggernaut, the monster Saryu is raising, is also a type of Seru. Be
careful! They say that all Seru, no matter what kind, suck the life and
soul out of people.

Old woman in front of item shop: Saryu used to be a good lord. But he
changed completely after that man named Dohati came.

Old woman east of Inn: Seru monsters in the Mist aren't the only ones
who murder.

Little boy at far northeast: My sister became a bride of the Seru, and
had her life sucked out of her by a monster.

Old man in between northern buildings: The long, long nightmare of the
Mist has hardened our hearts. But reality is worse than the nightmare.
In this town, living is harder than dying.

Woman east of Inn: It's you. You're the ones who drove the Mist from
Ratayu, right?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Woman: Liar! You can lie, but I know the truth!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Woman: You're horrible! Just horrible! Why did you do that? Everyone is
suffering because of what you did! Put things back the way they were!
Bring the Mist back to our town!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old woman at northwest: Even all that time in the Mist didn't seem to
change Saryu's mind.

Man by west gate: Can you guys keep a secret?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Man: (Silence)
======================================================================

1) Yes

Man: Just between you and me, if someone killed Saryu, this town would
be saved! Some men whose wives and daughters were killed tried to get
close to Saryu. But his bodyguards watch him so closely, they couldn't
get close enough to kill him. I heard Saryu shows himself when he offers
the brides of Seru to the monsters. We could get him then, when he's
vulnerable.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Item Shop

Peddler: Welcome! If you need accessories, this is the place! What can I
get for you today? (Menu Screen) Thank you! Come again!

Middle-aged woman: Saryu's taxes are very high! We have to work hard to
earn enough to pay them.

------------------
Upper-middle House
------------------

Middle-aged woman: Saryu took all three of them...Fin, Fow and Fem. I
asked the castle guards after the Mist cleared, but they didn't know if
my daughters were alive.

Green-haired man: We used to have three daughters. It was a cheerful
home with their voices and echoes. All three of them were taken to
Saryu's castle to be brides of Seru. I know my daughter's won't come
back. I'm not even sure if they have any life force left in them...

------------------
Northeastern House
------------------

Woman in dresser: (Silence) There are no women here. No women at all. So
go away. (Silence)

Old woman: Do you want to know about Juggernaut?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Old woman: Juggernaut is just a legend, but be careful! After all, the
Mist used to be just a legend.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Old woman: The legend says Juggernaut will come to life when the Mist
covers the land...That he's a child of the Mist...Larger than Mt. Letona,
faster than a flying cart! Juggernaut is a Seru not meant to live in the
human world! He feeds on human life and eats hearts! But that was
supposed to be a legend. Just a legend! But that thing sucking the life
out of those young women in the caverns under the castle...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old man at right: There are actually many types of Seru. Do you want to
know about a special Seru called a Sim-Seru?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Old man: You don't? Well, then, never mind.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Old man: Satisfying some conditions induces Seru to self-reproduce. It's
the basic Seru production method. One Seru becomes two. Strength Seru
produce strength Seru, and fire Seru beget fire Seru. Everyone used to
think that humans couldn't create new kinds of Seru with new powers. But
there are rumors that a method for creating an advanced type of Seru was
discovered in Karisto. It's called a Sim-Seru! A Seru created by human
hands! It almost seems sacrilegious! That monster Juggernaut must be a
Sim-Seru, too. What a dreadful creature!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old man at left: Oh, how horrible it was! I saw it with my own eyes! On
the day the Mist covered the earth, I saw Juggernaut come out of Saryu's
castle! Saryu must be draining the life force from those young girls to
feed Juggernaut.

Woman at front desk: I managed to survive the Mist, only to be forced to
send my daughter to the castle...I wish I could go in her place.

Man by window: What else can I do? If I disobey Saryu, he'll have my
whole family killed!

Innkeeper: Oh, welcome. A room is 240G per night. Do you want to stay
the night?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Innkeeper: Oh. I see.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Innkeeper: Thank you! Well, good night! (Party wakes up) G-Good morning!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Little boy: My sister was summoned by Saryu. She's going to be a bride
of the Seru.

Man by beds: When I woke up from the Mist, I saw my daughter, Eliza,
right next to me, and was so relieved. After everything that had
happened, I thought there was no danger of her being taken as a Seru
bride. But I was wrong. After all those years in the Mist, Saryu's heart
didn't change. Soon, they'll be coming to take my daughter away to be a
Seru bride, just like they used to do. If this is what we have to go
through now, I wish the Mist had never been cleared.

Ratayu Palace

1st Room

Woman in fancy dress: Oh, yeah...The Mist is gone. I feel like I was
having a bad dream. And I feel like the nightmare hasn't ended.

Guard at left: I do not say more than necessary. If I do, Saryu will
have me killed.

Guard at right: I do not think more than necessary. If I do, Saryu will
have me killed.

2nd Room

Guard in center: Saryu has ordered us to obey his orders. So we will
obey what Saryu has ordered.

Left door guard: Below here are the Seru brides. But Saryu has ordered
not to let anyone through here. So I cannot let you pass.

Right door guard: Below here are the Seru brides. But Saryu has ordered
me not to let anyone through here.  So I cannot let you pass.

Guard at northeast balcony: Zzzzz...

Guard at southeast entrance: Saryu ordered me to keep watch. So I am
keeping watch.

Guard at southwest entrance: (Mumbling) Horrible...A huge Seru...
Jugger...nau...Zzzzzz...

-----------
Throne Room
-----------

Woman in fancy dress: Oh, you... (Silence) I see. So you are travelers.
Yes, the soldiers here are under Saryu's spell. It's a form of mind
control. Before the Mist came, Saryu put on that Seru...He became an
entirely different person. It's so horrible what's happening to the
"Seru brides." I don't know what to do.

Right throne guard: Saryu is tired. My orders are to let you speak to
him only once. So you may speak only once.

Left throne guard: So you may speak only once.

Saryu: Leave now. Don't touch the Seru brides. That's an order.

Scientist at control panel: Heh, heh, heh. When Saryu arrives, you will
all join those young girls! Soon you won't even be able to walk! Time to
lament what remains of the world!

life! Now Juggernaut will grow even faster! Hee, hee, hee!

Woman at counter: I can't thank you enough. I'm so sorry.

Innkeeper: Oh! Do you want to restore your strength before you go to Noa?

1) Yes
2) No

2) No

Innkeeper: Oh. Well, I hope Noa is safe.

1) Yes

Innkeeper: Well, then, I have some good medicine for you.

Narration: Vahn drank the special medicine. HP and MP are completely
restored.

Innkeeper: Good luck...

Man by beds: Thank you so much! Thanks to you, Noa, my daughter is safe!
But I feel bad, because Noa is still in the castle...

Eliza: I feel so bad for this! I was only thinking of myself, and now
I've passed my misfortune on to you. I just feel so bad about this!

Saryu: Mist Generator...Yes, Dohati said he's going to build something
in the Western Sea. That may be somehow related to Juggernaut.

Throne Guards: It seems we were being mind controlled by the Sim-Seru
that was attached to Saryu. Please forgive me for all the rude things I
said to you.

Woman in fancy dress: The Seru brides returned to town when the Mist
cleared. I respect you all so much.

2nd Room

Guard on northeast balcony: Don't bother me! I'm trying to get some
sleep!

Guard at southeast entrance: I couldn't say this before, but I never
trusted that Dohati.

Guard at southwest entrance: So Ratayu's young girls are saved. As a
young guy, that makes me very happy.

Door Guards: I apologize, but this room has been sealed under orders of
Saryu.

Guard in middle of room: I feel like I had this horrible, horrible
nightmare...

1st Room

Left Guard: The Mist seems to be flowing in from the western sea.

Woman: I'm sorry. You were apprehensive because I said those horrible

Little boy at far northeast: My sister never came back.

Man by west gate: Do you remember me?

1) Yes
2) No

2) No

Man: What?! You don't remember? I don't believe you guys. I'm the one
who told you that Saryu appears when the brides of Seru are offered to
the monsters! You ungrateful bums! To hell with you!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Man: So you do? Then where's your gratitude! Because I'm the one who
told you about the plot to assassinate Saryu!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Man by west gate (if not spoken to previously): So Saryu was possessed
by some strange Seru, huh?

Old woman by Item Shop: Speaking of Dohati, before he left, he said he
was going to build a castle in the west.

Old woman by Inn: So a Juggernaut was born...Juggernaut breaks down
thick walls and shakes the earth. They say he is a Seru who serves the
Mist.

Old man by Inn: I'm an old man, but I want to spend what little time I
have left in a fulfilling way.

Little girl by Inn: I can't wait to grow up! 'Cause when I grow up, I
want to marry Vahn!

Man by checkpoint sign: So those Seru you're wearing are called Ra-Seru,
eh? I didn't know that type of Seru existed.

Man by Arms Shop: I don't believe it! The surviving brides of Seru came
back!

gratitude I feel now! At our hotel, we'll treat you as first-class

people will understand.


*Go to Karisto and return to Ratayu

Saryu: Ah, it is so good to see you again! Since we last met I have been
speaking with the townspeople. We spoke frankly about the town's future
and about what is to be done with me. Little by little, hope for the
future is returning to Ratayu. Humans are indeed wonderful! Of that I am

Tour guide: With the Mist gone from the Sebucus Islands, the tourists
will ride the flying wagons and come again. Then I'll go back to work as
a tour guide, like in the old days. But, hey...Do you want me to tell
you about the Karisto Kingdom?

a. Yes
b. No way
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

b. No

Tour Guide: Hey, don't think you can hear my stories for free! I'm a
professional tour guide! Giving free tours goes against my professional
ethics.
======================================================================

a. Yes

Tour Guide: Way to go, big spender! Alright, here we go. Eh, hem...
ladies and gentlemen. The Karisto Kingdom is the heart of Legaian
civilization. Naturally, you know why Karisto is the heart of
civilization, right?

a1. No, not really...

Tour Guide: What? You don't know? You say you don't know? Ladies and
gentlemen, it's because of the Seru. Karisto is the only place where
Seru are born.
======================================================================

b1. Yes! It's the Seru!

Tour Guide: That's right. Say, you're pretty smart! The Karisto Kingdom
is the only place where the Seru species are born.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tour Guide: New Seru are born only in Uru Mais, which is in the Karisto
Kingdom. All the Seru around here can be traced back to Uru Mais. We
breed the Seru from Uru Mais. But don't even think about sightseeing in
Uru Mais! Uru Mais is a forbidden zone. You can't get in without special
permission. Well, that's about it. Of course, now that Karisto is
enveloped in the Mist, who knows what's happened to Uru Mais now. But if
you're going to go to Karisto, I do recommend Sol Tower. It's a fun town.
Once you get there, you won't want to leave.

Tour Guide: Sorry, but I'm all out of stories.

Woman east of item shop: I wonder if he went home when the Mist cleared?

Man in front of item shop: Because of the Mist, the Seru I was wearing
did something to me. But now that the Mist is gone, the Seru can be worn
safely again.

Little boy: The machines that make the windmills move stopped working.

Woman in bathing suit: I became a Seru monster in the Mist. Now that was
quite exciting.

Man: Now that the Mist is gone, the sea and sky are clear!

----------
Monk House
----------

Sashia: With the Mist Generator stopped, I'm sure Octam is bustling with
people and flying carts again.

Monk by window: Sir! I learned firsthand how dreadful the Mist is.

Monk in back: Sir! Now that the Mist is gone, I plan to return to Biron
Monastery soon.

-------------
Danpas' House
-------------

Mrs. Danpas: But Danpas is alive! Please go and see him.

Mrs. Danpas: He may seem eccentric, but he's really just a bashful
person.

Danpas: Better safe than sorry. This is the smart thing to do.

Machine Room

1ST Floor

Bearded man: The machines? They all stopped.

1ST Floor Basement

Old man: The engines are still now, but for a long time they protected
us from the Mist. It makes me sad to see the engines like this.

2nd Floor Basement

Bearded man: The hot spring has cooled down, so you can just walk right
in.

----------------
Hot Spring Lodge
----------------

Woman by table: I wonder if there's a nice hot spring out there
somewhere...

Man behind desk: The hot spring isn't hot anymore, but if you want to
get in, go ahead, help yourself!

Man lying down: I used to come here every day, and even though the
water's cold, I still come out of habit.

Old man in spring: Now that the waters are cold, we're using it as a
pool.

------------
Pepe's House
------------

Woman: Oh, if you're looking for Pepe, he doesn't live here anymore.
When the Mist disappeared, he turned this house over to me and said he
was going home.

-------------------------
House behind Spring Lodge
-------------------------

Little girl: They say that daddy and mommy are missing. What does
"missing" mean? When are they coming home?

Little boy: Mommy and Daddy are in the Mist. I just know they are.

Old woman by entrance: The Mayor? He's in the shrine, in the north part
of town.

Little boy at northwest: The sky, the clouds, the stars, the rain, night
and day, the wind, the sea, the flowers...Now I know what they all are!

Old man at northwest: I'm sure that Hari is watching your bravery from
the other world.

Man between stairs: Oh, Vahn! Someone's waiting for you at the station.

Little girl: Hey, it's Vahn! The Mist disappeared, so we came up to the
surface from underground!

Woman by little girl: The air is so fresh! The sky is so bright!

Hunter at east: I think I'll make a new garden outside town!

---------------

Woman: It's so nice to have a house with lots of light.

Man: I love big houses...

Little boy: I like my house. It doesn't shake!

Man by beer barrel: Ah, it's been ten years since I've been here!

Man behind counter: Thanks to you, I can reopen this place. I owe it all
to you!

Man in front of counter: Are you going to Karisto Kingdom?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Man: Oh, so I heard wrong, then.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Man: Karisto Kingdom is said to be the cradle of civilization. It's the
home of the megalopolis Sol and Uru Mais, where Seru come from.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Left guard: Peacetime like this is the best! It's all thanks to Hari -
and to you!

Right guard: This is a party to celebrate our return to the surface!

Man at east: Here's to Hari! Here's to Vahn! Here's to Gala! Cheers! And
here's to cute little Noa! Cheers!

Woman at east: It's amazing how different a town can seem, even if
you've already been there once before.

Innkeeper: Welcome! The rate here is 200G per night. Do you want to
spend the night?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Innkeeper: Alright. Maybe next time, then.

I have to turn a profit...

----------------------
Room Behind Green Door

Man next to book: The Mist is gone from the Sebucus Islands now. Soon
Karisto Kingdom's Mist will be gone, too! I know it! That's why I'm
waiting here.

Woman: I have relatives in the town of Sol, in Karisto Kingdom. I hope
they're alright.

----------
Rem Shrine
----------

1st Floor

Narration: Vahn handed the Spring Salts to the Mayor!

Mayor: Oh! These are Spring Salts! Thank you so much! Ha, ha! What are
these for, you ask? Oh, ha, ha, ha! Why, they're for putting into
bathwater! They make it smell just like a natural hot spring! Ha! Please
take this in return, although I know it's not much of a reward. Please
use it.

Narration: Vahn now has the Slowness Chain!

Mayor: Thank you all so very much! Ha, ha! Thanks to you, now I can
laugh from the bottom of my heart! A-Ha, ha, ha, ha!

Woman: Hari used to be in this shrine.

Man left of shrine: I feel so sad when I think of what happened to Hari
- after guiding us for so long.

Old man: Hari is still alive - in a distant world, somewhere! I just
know he is.

1st floor basement

Priestess by Vol 1 BoP: I want to read all the books I can to learn
about the Mist and the Seru.

Priestess by Vol 3 BoP: We took the place of the nuns who died with Hari.

Priestess between gate keys: Someday, a person like Hari will appear to
carry out the will of Rem. That is what we believe.

Elevator Room

Little girl: Did you know that there are still some people underground!

Old man: Everyone used this elevator to return to the surface.

Narration: Experience ancient history and natural grandeur in dream-
filled Karisto!

Top of Main Building

Crewman next to Gondola: The gondola is good and ready, but...We can
only take you halfway to Karisto Kingdom because of the Mist there! Oh,
don't worry! We'll unhook the gondola midway, and the momentum will take
you the rest of the way! Until Karisto is Mist-free, you could say it's
a one-way ticket!

Crewman in middle: Thank you for what you did for us in underground
Octam! I just knew you would be heading to Karisto Kingdom next! That's
why I was waiting here.

Man by town entrance: Do you know about the flying trains of Octam?

1) Yes
2) No

2) No

Man: The flying trains use Seru to ferry passengers. Everyone uses them
to get from Octam to the Karisto Kingdom in the east.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Man: Now that the Mist is gone, I bet they're back in operation in Octam.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blonde girl by main building entrance: We heard from a traveler that
Hari died.

Old man by main building entrance: I'd like to get on a flying train and
do some traveling.

Old woman by main building entrance: Zalan must be so happy now that his
son has come home. It's a miracle!

Little Boy: I wanted to go to the hot springs in Vidna, but they say
they're all gone now.

Woman: Hari apparently has died, but if you make a pilgrimage to

Man: We were all saying that we should make a pilgrimage to Tieg Shrine
now that the Mist is gone.

out what that dream meant.

Zalan: I want to make it up to Pepe. I want to make up for those lost

you have any precious gems, I will appraise them for you.

Pepe: Father hasn't changed a bit. If only my deceased mother could have
been here. Then everything would be perfect. (Silence) I want to be a
first-rate jeweler like my father. I'm going to have him teach me
everything!

Little girl in front of Inn: Oh, you must have come from below...Just

Little boy in front of Inn: Daddy and Mommy told me not to go below the
3rd floor, 'cause the Mist is there.

Left woman in front of Jazz Club: Oh, the decadence! The depravity! Good
children should stay clear of the cafe!

Right woman in front of Jazz club: Be careful when you go to the cafe! I
heard a rumor that a crafty thief named Cara goes there sometimes.

Kid in front of Elevator 4th floor: Um, you know, the Mist is heavier
than air, so it can't get up this high!

Man in front of Muscle Dome: To fight at the Coliseum, you have to be
either very confident or very stupid. You're not thinking of fighting at
the Coliseum, are you?

1) Yes, I am.
2) No, I'm not.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) Yes, I am.

Man: Ha, ha! Then you must be very stupid!
======================================================================

2) No, I'm not.

Man: Oh, so you're an unconfident coward, are you?!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Green-haired woman: Life is so empty. Each day the same as the one
before. The monotony is unbearable! Maybe I'll get a Seru somewhere, put
it on and go downstairs. If I turned into a Seru monster, at least the
madness wouldn't be boring! It might be a lot better than being a
lifeless shell here.

Green-haired dancer in front of Sol Fever Disco: Oh, you've got a cute
little girl with you. You should take her to the dance club!

Blonde dancer in front of Sol Fever Disco: I'm going to go to the dance

Man in front of 5th floor elevator: I haven't seen you here before. Are
you from the outside world?

Man: Ha, ha! Well, I know this is a dangerous town...But that doesn't
mean you don't have to answer a question honestly!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Man: Then you must have seen the castle in the sky. It's called the
Floating Castle. The Mist covering the Karisto Kingdom comes from that
castle.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Left man in front of Sol Broadway: That's the Sol 3rd Street Theater. It
used to be called the Capital of Comedy...But now they call it the
Palace of Yawns.

Right man in front of Sol Broadway: Hey...You, the big fellow there. You
look just like Pig, the comedian.

Woman in front of Bakery: There are all these weapons and armor for
sale...But nobody is buying them to use in battle. Except Gaza, that is.

Kid in front of 6th floor elevator: Mommy went into the Mist to look for
Daddy. And, um, Grandpa went into the Mist to look for Mommy and Daddy.
And my, um, big brother went into the Mist to look for Mommy and Daddy
and Grandpa. Now I have to go into the Mist to look for everyone.

Man in front of Sol Warehouse: Oh well. It takes all kinds, I suppose.

Old man in front of Community Hall: It's all over. The world is dead!
This is heaven. A paradise of despair!

Old woman in front of 7th floor elevator: Genesis Tree? Now that you
mention it...I heard that in the era of Etora IV, the Genesis Tree in
Warrior's Square died and was moved to the roof.

======================================================================

1) Yes

Bearded man: Ha, ha, ha! I bet! This is a pretty fun town, eh? This is
the most exciting town in the world! Sol offers all forms of
entertainment. This town is paradise! But then again, every kind of
enjoyment gets boring in the end. Ten years! For ten years I've been
trapped in paradise by the Mist! I want to see the outside world! I want
to lay down in the grass and gaze up at the sky! I'm tired of this place!
Fed up with everything! Somebody, get me out of here! Life. Fate. It's
all a joke. A great big joke!

Narration (fish tank): On the glass is a sign: The rare, expensive

Inn 2nd Floor

Woman by cabinets: When the town was attacked by the Mist, people were
crying and screaming. It was utter chaos. But within a year, the people
began indulging in debauchery, as a diversion, they said. Drinking,
fighting, dancing. But after a few years they became bored with those
diversions. The people here are like ghosts - not living but merely
existing out of fear of dying.

Woman by beds: Oh, you're new here! Do you want to hear about when the
Mist came to Sol?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Woman: Oh, Well. I guess stories like that wouldn't interest strangers
like you.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Woman: It was right in the middle of the long, long war with Conkram.
The war had been raging for over ten years, and we were beating
Conkram's army. "We're about to win! Soon the war will be over,"
everyone thought. We were about to win, when a strange castle appeared
in the sky, and Mist started flowing out of it! As long as the Mist is
here, my family and friends will be possessed by Seru. Victory was close
yet too far to grasp. That's the real tragedy of Sol.

rid of the Mist. I know something that might help you. Do you want
another glass of milk?

b. No
(Same "No" response as above)

a. Yes

Pipe smoker: The treasure chests in the lower levels of Sol are called
the Sage's Treasure Chests. You can make the Sage happy by giving
something he likes in return for what you take from the chest. There are
eight Sage's Treasure Chests in all, so you'd better have enough treats
for all of them! Do you want another glass of milk?

b. No

a. Yes

Pipe smoker: If the Mist is really gone like you say it is, that's
really great! Good luck, Vahn!

Well, this is a place for people to relax. So kids, don't ask too many

Pianist: A good tune, don't you think? If you have any requests, just
bring me the music!

Man at left of southwest table: That guy Grantes over there, he never
talks about himself. And he's always sighing. About all he does is argue
with some girl named Cara, who brings him money sometimes.

Man at right of southwest table: That foxy lady at the counter knows
some pretty important things, they say. But it takes a lot of cash to
find out everything she knows!

Showgirl: Love is born and dies too soon...But there's no need to cry.
Crying won't bring her back. And forgotten dreams don't return.

Male bartender: Want something to drink?

1) Yes

Bartender: Sorry, you need to be 21 or older!

Bartender: Well then, what do you want?

a. Do you know about Gaza?
b. Can you tell me about Grantes?
c. We got rid of the Mist downstairs.
d. This is a nice place.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a. Do you know about Gaza?

Bartender: You watch out for that Gaza! He lives only to kill Seru
monsters that live downstairs. Get in his way at the wrong time, and
he'll mow you down! (Silence)
======================================================================

b. Can you tell me about Grantes?

Bartender: He's one of our newer regulars. He's been coming here since
the Mist invaded the area downstairs. He's a good customer - always pays
his bill and mostly keeps to himself. (Silence)
======================================================================

c. We got rid of the Mist downstairs.

Bartender: Oh yeah? Stop joking around. Besides, if that happened, Gaza
would lose his reason for living. He'd be furious! (Silence)
======================================================================

d. This is a nice place.

Bartender: Thanks.

a. OK
b. No way
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
b. No way

Bargirl: Oh well. Too bad for you.
======================================================================

a. OK

Bargirl: Oh, I'm so happy! Mmm, this tastes good! Now, you know the
Soren, right? The ones with Seru Wings? They fly through the sky, not
obeying anyone. They're very proud. But I heard that a young Soren had
risked his life for forbidden love. Hey, I'm thirsty again!

b. No way

(Same response as above)

a. OK

Bargirl: (Gulp! Gulp!) Oh, that was good! Now where was I? That's right!
I was talking about the Soren who risked his life for forbidden love.
Soren Law forbids them from loving anyone who doesn't have Seru Wings.
In other words, they can't fall in love with surface-dwelling people.
Isn't that terrible? There are a lot of nice girls who don't have Seru
Wings...like me, for instance! I feel real bad about this, but could you
buy me just one more drink?

b. No

(same response as above)

a. Yes

Bargirl: Thank you! One day, a young Soren was flying. He had a Soren
Flute, which is more valuable than even their own lives. But he dropped
it and it fell to earth. He looked everywhere for it, but couldn't find
it. After searching so long, he was frantic. Then he heard a song being
played on a flute. He could tell it was his Soren Flute, but he had
never heard that melody. He followed the sound. Whew, I'm getting
thirsty again. Buy me a drink!

b. No way

(Same response as above)

a. OK

Bargirl: Oh, you're so nice! Anyhow, the young Soren found a girl
playing the flute in Buma. He watched her for a long time, listening to
the melancholy song. Without realizing it, he had walked right up to her.
She saw him, and the flute fell out of her mouth. They stared at each
other. And they fell in love, right then and there. Just like that!
(Silence)

2) Why don't we call it a night?

Bargirl: Oh well. Too bad for you.
======================================================================

1) Would you like another drink?

Bargirl: OK. I like you, Mister. You seem to...understand me. The two
couldn't hide their love for each other. But...Soren Law wouldn't allow
their love. Sigh! For love's sake, the young Soren made a frightening
deal with a demon. The deal was...It was to... (Silence)

Narration: There's no reply! She's fallen asleep!

Man at far end of right bar: Genesis Tree? Yeah, the Genesis Tree...I

Bearded man at right end of southeast table: Now I think...I think you
should never - ever! - forget dreams or hope no matter what happens!
People can dream anywhere they want, and find hope in whatever they want.
I dream here, and I find hope. That's what I do.

Bearded men at left end of southeast table: Dreams and hope? I barely
remember the words.

Woman left of ring: I've told Gaza so many times. "No matter how many
Seru monsters you kill, it won't bring your children back." But I could
never get through all that hatred. Gaza isn't possessed by a Seru, but
the Mist has eaten away at his heart just the same.

Man left of ring: You guys know who Gaza is?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Man: Gaza used to be a war hero. A fine man. Proud. He trained day and
night to hone his skills. But when the Mist came, Seru monsters killed
his kids and his grandkids, too. He was crushed! The only thing that
keeps him going now is exacting his revenge on the Seru.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Man: Let me just say that if Gaza gets in the ring, no Seru alive stands
a chance! The Astral Sword that Gaza wields is exquisitely sharp. But
Gaza only fights Seru monsters from the lower levels.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Man right of ring: Wow! Did you see that move? When the Mist clears, I'm
gonna get a Seru and enter the Tournament!

Woman right of ring: These fights are so exhilarating! Since you guys
have Seru, you should enter!

Man on northeast seat: Oh, Pippy! The world may be engulfed in Mist, but
I'll never let you go!

Pippy: Oh, darling! Your love is everythng to me! (Blushing)

Owner: Frankly, the way things are, I should just shut this place down,
but...If I did that, all the people here would have nowhere else to go!
That's why I keep the place open and let them perform here. I guess you
could call it a kind of volunteer work!

Comedian above owner: I keep doing comedy because I don't have anything
else to do, but it's so depressing, really. Oh, I want to hear the
audience laugh just once before I die!

Comedian underneath red couch: A long time ago this theater was really
popular, and there were girls all over the place.

Owner: Ever since you did your comedy act here, Gala, crowds have been
getting bigger!

Comedian above owner: I wish I had your talent, Gala.

Comedian by red couch: Why don't you three go up on stage as a comedy
trio?

Mon: Hey, Gala! Thanks for helping me out the other day. Thanks to you,
I've regained my self-confidence. I'll never say "It's all over for me"
again! My partner, Pig, saw your act the other day and agreed to work
with me again! Pig says he's done some soul-searching, and I know it's
not fair to you, but...Pig and I have decided to work as a team again.
Thank you, Gala. I have you to thank for everything!

Mon: But Gala, I hope we have the chane to do comedy together again
someday.

Pig: I...I hope I can be as good a comedian as you someday, Gala! You're
a comic genius!

Comedian by stage entrance: The show has started. I can't let anyone who
isn't a performer pass.

Man on couch: A-ha! Ha, ha! Ha, ha, ha, ha! I almost laughed myself to
death! So I was resting here. It's great to laugh, isn't it?

Cashier: Oh, Gala! You guys don't have to pay! Pleaes, go on in!

Woman wandering main hall: I came to see Gala and Mon when I heard how
funny they were. Can't you do another show?

Little kid: I wanna be a comedian, too!

Man in red: I didn't know comedy could be so funny until I saw your act,
Gala.

Left man outside broadway entrance: Gala and Mon are a big hit! Thanks
to them, the 3rd Sreet Theater is drawing huge crowds!

Community Hall

Man at southwest wall: Gaza sometimes stops here after he returns from
the lower levels.

Old man at southeast: Mar? Is that you? No, of course not. Sorry, I
thought that young lady there was someone I knew once. Mar was one of
Gaza's grandkids. Do you want to hear that story?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Old man: Oh, alright. Never mind.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Old man: Gaza had a son named Theodore and two grandkids, Mar and Belde.
One day, in the Mist, in the lower levels of Sol, right before Gaza's
eyes...The Seru monsters killed Gaza's son and grandkids. That's what
made Gaza run mad. All he had left was his sword. His only reason for
living was to kill Seru monsters and perfect his swordsmanship.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old man at southwest: You're Noa, right? You look just like Gaza's dead
grandchild, Mar.

Old woman at cabinet: I told him that the Seru he kills may have been
human once. That he may be killing his own friends and townspeople. But
he wouldn't listen.

Old woman in upper room: The Mist is the real villain. Gaza vowed to
himself and his sword to kill Seru and perfect his swordsmanship.

Old man by lower bed: What'll be really frightening is when the Mist
disappears! When the Mist disappears from Sol, the Seru will disappear.
When that happens, Gaza will lose his reason for living, and his spirit
may die.

Old man by window: That Gaza, what a sad fellow. He used to be so
dedicated! Now his heart is dead.

Sol Cafe

Man by barrels: Emperor Etora VIII of Sol was engulfed by the Mist while
commanding the front-line troops.

Big Bearded man: I collected Seru samples in Uru Mais under orders from
Emperor Etora VIII.

Old man near barrels: Yeah, the Genesis Tree. In the deepest cavern
under Sol is Warrior's Square. There was a Genesis Tree there. But they
say the Genesis Tree is gone now.

Woman at kitchen sink: Now I remember. I did hear of it, several years
before the Mist came from the Floating Castle...I heard that some
strange mist had appeared in Conkram during the war with Sol. But thanks
to the brave deeds of three strange travelers, that mist disappeared. I
wonder if that mist in Conkram has anything to do with the Mist today.

Peddler: Because of the war, the arms dealer downstairs has a better
selection than they do upstairs.

Woman by window: I heard from a girl who works at the cafe... ...that a
young Soren man had a tragic love affair in Buma before the Mist came.

Little boy by southeast bed: Um, Cara? She always brings us lots of

they have Seru, and they can fly!

Woman by beds: Do you know Cara?

1) Yes
2) No

2) No

Woman: Oh, I see. Well, Cara is a very wonderful person.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Woman: I know she calls herself a thief, but...She's really a gentle
person. Besides, there are reasons she goes into the Mist to steal. One
of them is to pay the operating expenses here. Another reason...Oh, I
don't know if I should tell you this, but...Cara said she steals so that
she won't regret the love she had. I don't really understand what that
means, but it sure sounds complicated and deep.

Monk: Ah, just as I thought. Before the Mist, we wrote a book of the
secrets of many powerful Arts. But I left it in on one of the lower
floors. The book's title? P-Please, don't ask. It's too embarrassing.

Monk farthest northeast: Y-Yes. You want to know the title of the book
of secrets about Arts that is on one of the lower floors? It's t-too
embarrassing to say.

Monk at southwest: Sir! The secret to opening Sage's Gate is in the
treasure chests in the lower floors of Sol.

Monk at northeast: Sir! Warrior's Square is located under this town.
However, the only way there is through Sage's Gate, which is tightly
sealed!

Monk at southeast: Sir! To think that there are Biron warrior-monks
wearing Seru like Gala does...There must be many things beyond our
imagination in the outside world now that the Mist is gone!

monster. You've seen such terrible fighting...And poor Gaza. He put down
his sword, but after his grandchildren were killed by the Mist, he took
it up again. Poor, lonely Gaza...his only choice was to live by the
sword again. I know you are careful and have fine Seru, but a Seru is a
Seru! It's just a tool! People are more important than tools! Never let
a tool rule your heart!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old woman by staircase: Maybe god created the Mist to punish us for
relying on the Seru too much.

Innkeeper: Welcome! A room is 200G per night. Do you want to stay the
night?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Innkeeper: Oh. Well, come again!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Innkeeper: Thank you for the 200G. Enjoy your stay!

Soldier by staircase: This is His Imperial Majesty Emperor Etora VIII!

Soldier by beds: This is His Imperial Majesty Emperor Etora VIII!

Etora: What? Have you forgotten Usha's password?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Etora: Good work! Give my regards to Usha when you see him!
======================================================================

1) Yes

Etora: Vahn, you are brave and strong, but somewhat lacking in memory. I
still clearly remember it though Usha told me ten years ago! Now, if you
cannot trust your memory, write it down! X X TRIANGLE CIRCLE SQUARE! I
will say it again for your weak memory, Vahn! X X TRIANGLE CIRCLE SQUARE!
That is the message! I know entreat you to destroy the abominable
Floating Castle! Good work! Give my regards to Usha when you see him!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Soldier by beds: Now, you never heard this from me, but...I think it
would be hard for the Emperor to go back upstairs as ruler at this point.

Soldier by stairs: Now, you never heard this from me, but...The
commoners took over the Imperial Room upstairs, and the Emperor has
nowhere to go.

Upper Inn

Middle-aged woman next to bearded man: I was lucky to survive the Mist
and make it back here. But on the other hand...I go crazy when I think
what my husband must have been doing in the ten years he's been away
from me!

Bearded man: Oh, yeah, that's right. I'm married. I completely forgot!

Man by upstairs fireplace: When I came out of the Mist downstairs, my
wife was old, and all my friends were dead. This is reality? Hmmph. It's
more like a bad dream.

Woman by cabinets: When the Mist cleared and my husband came home, I
realized what the real tragedy of Sol is.

Woman by beds: Well, I suppose we should be happy for those who were
reunited with their family and friends.

Grantes: (More silence)

Grantes: I know! I know the Mist is gone from downstairs. But it doesn't
mean a darn thing to me. So let me be, will you?

Grantes: (Silence)

Blonde Pipe Smoker: Well, well! It's the cute hero! Make yourself at
home!

Female bartender: You guys may have rid Sol of the Mist, but...You can't
just do whatever you want in my restaurant.

Left man at southwest table: Even though the Mist is gone from
downstairs, Grantes keeps on being so gloomy.

Right man at southwest table: I'm so happy the Mist is gone from Sol! So
happy! I'm happy, that's why I'm celebrating here!

Singer: A love that travels far will come back again someday. When you
believe in someone without tears. When you wait and never forget.

Man at right bar counter: You can never tell, eh? I used to think that
everyone would come back up here once the Mist was gone. But even though
the Mist is gone, almost no one came back! They must have all died. When
the Genesis Tree was revived, I got hit over the head with something
called "Reality"!

Bartender: So, I heard you defeated Gaza. It must have been a tough
fight...in a lot of ways.

Right man at southeast table: See? I was right. There is hope and dreams
in this place, just like I said.

Left man at southeast table: Hmmph! The drink called "Hope"? Yeah, I
remember how that tastes. It's like a dreamy future in a glass...

Man at west slot machine: I heard the Mist down below is gone. But that
doesn't even matter when you're in here!

Woman left of ring: Right now, I bet Gaza is playing with his kids in
heaven.

Man left of ring: Now, in the age of the Mist, Gaza is considered washed
up. I can see why you might think that, but...Let's remember the old
Gaza, the strong, proud Gaza.

Man right of ring: The Mist downstairs may have cleared, but they say
there's still a lot of Mist elixir here. That's why the Seru are still
so tough.

Right stage dancer: The Mist is gone?! That doesn't matter here. Don't

Woman in front of breads: Who would have thought that Soru Bread had the

Man by boxes: I wonder why the Sage's Treasure Chests eat bread? Who

Man wearing Seru: I guess I misjudged you! Those Ra-Seru are the dream

--------------
Community Hall

Man at southwest: In the end, Gaza must have come to his senses.

Old man by table: Sol's people lost all hope and the ability to envision
a bright future without Mist. Despair, weakness and apathy...That's what
turned Gaza into a monster and set it free. Maybe Gaza gave up on the
human race.

Old woman in front of sink: The reason that hardly anyone came back
after the Mist cleared is because Gaza killed them all! That's what some
people say. But I can't bring myself to blame Gaza. After all, if there
was no Mist, this tragedy never would have happened. Gaza is a victim of
the Mist, too.

Old woman in upper room: To think that Gaza, who hated teh Mist more
than anyone and hated the Seru more than anyone... ...would give himself
up to the Mist and the Seru. What an ironic fate.

Old man by lower bed: People wearing Seru aren't the only ones the Mist
makes mad! Even those who survive are eaten away with hatred for the
Mist! That's frightening!

Old man by upper bed: I see. So the Genesis Tree was revived and Gaza is
dead....He was too zealous. He confused his methods with his objectives.

Old man by beds: All of us hope that the Mist will disappear from all of
Legaia someday.

Man by barrels: I hear that down there, Emperor Etora was released from
the curse of the Mist, as well.

Bearded man by window: If you guys can travel outside, you should go to
Uru Mais!

Woman by sink: I heard that Emperor Etora VIII escaped and is in the
lower levels.

Old man: "When you're in trouble, go to Dr. Usha" -- that's what they
used to say. I wonder if Dr. Usha is safe?

Peddler: I hear the arms dealers and accessory shops downstairs are open
again. I think I'll go see.

Woman by window: I'm sure you want to hear the rest of the story of the
tragedy that took place at Buma.

2) No

Little girl: I knew it. That's what I thought.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Little girl: Oh! Then I'm going to study hard!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Woman by carpet: I thought their parents would come back when the Mist
cleared...But unfortunately not too many came back. Maybe because they
were in the Mist for so long...Or maybe because of Gaza. No one knows
for certain.

Woman by cradles: I'm going to tell the children that you were the
legendary Ra-Seru and brave heroes!

Little boy by cradles: I bet the Soren could take me to the Mist castle
way up in the sky!

Woman by beds: She hasn't come around here for a while. I wonder if
something happened to her.

Little boy by beds: But I don't want any more presents. i just want Cara
to come back!

Monk farthest northwest: Sir! Our ultimate goal is to teach the world

Monk west of staircase: Sir! Gala is the pride of all Biron warrior-
monks.

Monk southeast of staircase: Sir! I may have no Ra-Seru, but I will
endeavor to change the world by emulating the spirit of Gala.

Monk northeast of staircase: Sir! Many people failed to return after the
Mist cleared. If that is because of Gaza, then i am equally to blame for
failing to stop him.

Monk southeast of gate: Sir! Good luck to you all!

Monk farthest northeast (after finding Mary's Diary): Y-Yes. A-Alright.
The...book! G-Give it to me!

Narration: Vahn passed Mary's Diary to the warrior-monk.

Monk: Ohh, this is...so embarrassing! Ohh! A warrior-monk of Biron
should not gaze upon such a book! Oh...my! (Silence)

Monk farthest northeast: (Silence) Yes...Uh, the Arts, yes. Understood.
I will teach them to you.

1) Teach me Vahn's Arts!
2) Teach me Noa's Arts!
3) Teach me Gala's Arts!
4) No, I don't want to bother you.

Old Deez: Gala! Vahn! Noa! Good work! Words fail to describe my joy at
your success! I deeply appreciate you. Now, I hear there is another
Genesis Tree in Karisto -- in Buma, far to the north. Your power and
that of the Ra-Seru should enable you to revive it and drive off the
Mist! Good luck. And may Tieg smile on the whole world!

Old Deez: Give my regards to Master Zopu, of the head temple of Biron.

Monk at northeast: Sir! Buma is a town of snow and ice covered ravines.
I wish to visit it myself someday.

Monk at southwest: Sir! The Mist may be gone from Sol, but true peace
will not come until the Floating Castle is destroyed!

Monk at southeast: Sir! Once the Mist is gone from the world, I hope to
visit Biron's head temple and see Master Zopu.

It must be Gaza. He must have...

Older boy in front of elevator 6F: My parents and grandfather were lost

Little kid in front of elevator 6F: My brother came back!

Old man in front of Community Hall: I used to call Sol a dead world, a
paradise of despair...I'm so embarrassed. Hope, despair, life and death
-- it all depends on how you look at things!

Old woman in front of elevator 7F: Genesis Tree? Now that you mention
it...Hmm. I hear there's a magnificent Genesis Tree in Buma, a town
north of here.

Assistant southwest of elevator: Nivora Ravine is located north of Buma,
which is east of the laboratory.

Assistant southeast of elevator: I knew of the Ice Seru, Koru, before
the Mist appeared. But not that Koru was placed in the Nivora Ravine and
ordered to breathe cold air by Mist power. That must be the doing of
Zora of the Floating Castle.

Please, play this music for Grantes.

Red-headed man by staircase: What about the war between Sol and Conkram?
Who won?

Green-haired man by walkway: Before teh Floating Castle came, I remember
hearing that a mountain pass to Conkram disappeared...In other words,
Conkram could no longer be reached on foot.

Old woman by staircase: We all warned Cara! We told her she'd have
nothing but bad luck if she fell in love with a Soren man.

Woman in center of town: I'm getting sea sick. I didn't know Buma moved
so much!

Man in boat: Aahh...Aahh...Ahh-Chooo! Darn it! I think I caught a cold!

Man in boat: Aahh...Aahh..Ahh-Chooo! Aargh! I definitely caught a cold!

Woman: I think Grantes is such a handsome guy!

Man: Grantes took a shining egg from out of the Genesis Tree. That was
against Soren law, and Grantes had his Seru Wings taken away for that.

Old man by window: The Soren prefer solitude and almost never come in
contact with us surface-dwelling humans. I suppose the only people they
ever talk to are Conkram's royal family.

Old man by fireplace: Poor Cara. Her parents died in an accident before
teh Floating Castle was built.

Old woman: I bet that Soren fellow took advantage of Cara's loneliness.

can only reach the Floating Castle with the help of Soren, who wear the

Soren in front of bridge (northeast pillar): It's me, remember? I was
the one who carried you here, Noa!

Gray-haired Soren (farthest northeast): The Soren have martial arts, too.
But the greatest master and secret book were lost at Floating Castle. If
you go to the Floating Castle, look for the secret book. It is called
Soren Secrets. If you bring us the Soren Secrets, I'm sure it will help
you some way.

Gray-haired Soren (farthest northeast): If you bring us the Soren
Secrets, I'm sure it will help you some way.

Soren west of Inn: We Soren managed to escape the Mist thanks to our
Seru Wings. But now, we're just biding our time until our extinction as
a people.

Soren (near Elder's house): I have told our Elder, Cructes, all about
you.

Female Soren (near Elder's house): Many times our Soren warriors
attacked the Floating Castle...Many precious lives were lost. They were
no match for the Mist's henchmen and their Sim-Seru.

Female Soren: I'm sure a surface-dweller just can't understand.
======================================================================

1) Yes

Female Soren: Luctes and Grantes are sons of Cructes, the Soren Elder.
Grantes was the younger brother of Luctes. The two brothers were very
close. But then Grantes fell in love with a surface-dwelling human. Then
Grantes was deceived by an evil person who exploited Grantes' devotion
to the one he loved. That cruel deceiver was Zora, queen of the Floating
Castle! She promised Grantes Seru Wings for Cara, if he would steal a
Ra-Seru Egg from Buma's Genesis Tree. Unwittingly, Grantes helped build
the Floating Castle. Then the Mist came. When Cructes learned of
Grantes' betrayal, he was left with no choice. He took away Grantes'
Seru Wings and banished him to the Mist in accordance with Soren law! As
Grantes' father, and as Soren Elder, it was a painful decision for
Cructes.

Peddler: I have an unattended kiosk here, and even with the Mist, some
kind people put money in! This makes me happy -- so happy, in fact, I'm
going to give you this for free!

Narration: Vahn now has the Vitality Ring.

Peddler: I guess human nature is basically good -- just like I always
thought!

Peddler: I had an unattended kiosk here, but no one's gonna come buy
anything with the Mist around.

due any day now. We can't have any commotion here!

Right Guard in upper throne room: This is the palace of King Nebular.
Stop loitering about and go back to town!

Left guard in lower throne room: You are wearing very nice Seru. With a
Seru like that, I could make a name for myself in the war with Sol.

Right guard in lower throne room: Finally! The demonstration of the new
weapon is tomorrow. I hear it's powerful enough to annihilate everyone
in Sol in one shot. I can't wait!

North guard: Prince Cort is very capable for such a young prince! Dohati

South guard: This is the office of Secretary of State Zeto and Secretary
of the Interior Dohati.

Zeto: The new weapon is indeed good news. It's a blessing! With this new
weapon, we can magnify the power of our Seru and destroy Sol. But King
Nebular is too cautious. He says he won't permit its use unless the
demonstration tomorrow is a success. This foot-dragging will only make
things worse for us in the war.

Dohati: Mmm...You are strangers here. You must be travelers. If you are
travelers, then you must know Ratayu, correct?

1) Yes
2) No
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) No

Dohati: You don't, eh? Then you are of no use to me. Leave here at once!

Zora: Hmmf. The Nemesis Gem? That substance is a state secret! When
refining the ancient materials needed to build the fortress' Gate of

Guard by stairs: The plan announced calls for Jette to build a new

Fortress. That's some name, eh?

Guard in middle of room: Hmmf! The whole town is celebrating the new
weapon. I wish I could get in on the celebration!

Guard at southeast: Prince Cort discovered the ancient secret of the
Seru and used it to make that new weapon.

Guard farthest southwest: Prince Cort is amazing! First, he created
different Seru in the underground lab. Now he's developed a new weapon
that'll make all the Seru more powerful.

Guard next to southwest guard: Don't tell anyone, but sometimes I see
Prince Cort scowling with a bone-chilling look.

have made much use of it!

came here to see the hometown of the person who saved the world, Vahn!
I'm honored to see you!

Woman on beach: Some day, I'm going to sail to far-off lands across the
Mist-free ocean in a bright white boat. You can be the captain, Vahn.
Watch over me, O.K.?

Girl by bee tree: We're all going on an outing! An outing is when you
take a lunch and go outside somewhere.

Little boy by windmill: They said we can play outside now!

Wow, this is cool! If you think about it, you used the weapons and
accessories you bought here to save the world! Welcome to our store!
What can I get you? (Menu Screen) Thank you! Come again!

Man visiting shop: This Rim Elm is just a tiny little village...But I
see it was the warmth and unyielding courage of the people here that
made you what you are.

Male shopkeeper: Thanks to you, Vahn, business is booming! It's great!

Ixis: When you wore the Ra-Seru and left Rim Elm...I was filled with
envy of you. But now that the Mist is gone... ...you and I are both
hunters of Rim Elm. And when it comes to hunting skills, I know I'm at
least as good as you!

Ixis' mom: Well, if my son had a Ra-Seru then he could save the world,
too, you know! Oh! Vahn! I didn't know you were there! Don't pay any
attention to what I was saying. I was just talking to myself.

Ixis' mom: I wish my Ixis was mature and dependable like you, Vahn.

Ixis' dad: I'm grateful for every day I'm alive. When there's life, all
things are possible.

Old person by table: Noa is in the back, talking with the Village Elder.

Old person by stove: I'm glad that the words of an old man like me
helped you during your journey.

you're a true hero, treat Noa well. You've shared joy and sorrow.

Noa: You're lucky, Vahn, because you have your father and Nene, so
you're not alone.

now you know far more about the outside world than I do! I've got a new
lease on life now, though, so I'm going to learn as much as I can!

Luctes: Good to see you again, Vahn. I brought Dr. Usha here. You may
have heard already, but the Seru are gradually losing their power. Soon,
the Soren's Seru Wings will also become useless.

2) So we won't be able to fly together.

picture taken with a Camera Stone. Take a good picture of me, would you?
And get my good side.

1) Yes - (Picture taken of old man smiling)
2) No way - Old man: Can't take a picture of an old man like me, eh? You
hurt my feelings...

Mei: Vahn, you've brought something unusual with you!

1) This is a Camera Stone

1) This is a Camera Stone.
2) It's a souvinir from Vidna.

Mei: A Camera Stone! I've heard of those!

a. Can I take your picture, Mei?
b. Pretty cool, huh?

b. Pretty cool, huh?

Mei: Is that so...

a. Can I take your picture, Mei?

Mei: Oh! (Pictures taken of Mei on the beach and by Genesis Tree)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mei: Oh! Vahn, what are you doing with a Camera Stone?

1) Oh, I wanted to take your picture
2) Oh, n-nothing...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2) Oh, n-nothing...

Mei: You're so funny, Vahn!
======================================================================

1) Oh, I wanted to take your picture.

Mei: Oh! I guess it's OK. If you want to, Vahn...

(Pictures taken of Mei on the beach and by Genesis Tree)

Mei: The Camera Stone broke! I'm so sorry I made you break something so
important to you...

a. I can always buy another one.
b. I wish I hadn't done that...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a. I can always buy another one.

Mei: Thank you, Vahn! I hope it comes out good...

b. I wish I hadn't done that...

Mei: Oh, Vahn! You're so mean!

Narration (after taking a certain amount of pictures): Camera Stone
broke into pieces! Those tourist-trap souvenirs sure are pieces of junk!

==============================
The Geography of Drake Kingdom
==============================

Drake Kingdom lies in a remote part of South Legaia, on a peninsula of
mountains and valleys. Under the rule of King Drake, there is safety and
abundant resources. Visitors to Drake Castle should visit Mt. Rikuroa.
Go through Drake Castle and head north to find Mt. Rikuroa. At its
summit, stands the Genesis Tree, which is said to watch over humans
since the age of the gods.

=====================
Slightly Soiled Diary

--------------------
Harvest Month, Day 2
--------------------

The harvest festival isn't far. I can't wait! But King Drake seems
uneasy.

--------------------
Harvest Month, Day 4
--------------------

A messenger from the north said the Mist has covered Jeremi. King Drake
is pale.

--------------------
Harvest Month, Day 5
--------------------

A strange building has been built in the valley to the northeast.
Soldiers sent by King Drake to investigate failed to return.

--------------------
Harvest Month, Day 7
--------------------

A curfew has been declared. The royal scientists are investigating the
Mist. I hope they find a solution, so my dear King Drake can be free of
his anguish.

---------------------
Harvest Month, Day 10
---------------------

The Mist has appeared in Drake Kingdom. The eastern plain is covered.
From the watchtower, the Mist seems to be coming from the building in
the valley.

---------------------
Harvest Month, Day 13
---------------------

King Drake has forbidden the use of the Seru. The harvest festival is
canceled. That's understandable, considering how the Mist is affecting
the Seru.

---------------------
Harvest Month, Day 14
---------------------

I can't believe the King's order! But we are compelled to obey...Obeying
is my duty, as one who serves King Drake.

===================
King Drake's Letter
===================

To the human traveler that finds this.

I am King Drake III, King of Drake. I know not who will read this letter.
But anyone who makes it through the Mist must have powers greater than
the Mist. No doubt you have seen the Seru monsters in this castle's
dungeons. Those monsters are in fact my dear retainers and the people of
my kingdom. When the Mist approached we tried many ways to drive it back.
We even prayed at the Genesis Tree of Mt. Rikuroa to the north. Legend
says the tree has the power to save the human race. In the end we
decided to lock ourselves in the dungeon and wear Seru, surrendering to
the Mist. As Seru monsters, we should survive on Drake water until the
day the Mist goes away. We locked ourselves in the dungeon so the Seru
madness would not force us to harm anyone. So, traveler, I ask you to
drive away the Mist, as we were powerless to do so. You are our only
hope for the future -- the hope that sustains us.

========================
Maya's Unfinished Letter
========================

To my daughter, Mei: Today Vahn came to Biron and told me about Juno. I
was so shocked and shed many tears. When I think of how lonely you must
be, my heart breaks with grief. When you were still young, I left you
and came to Biron. I left because of the Mist. Please forgive me for
leaving you in Rim Elm. Vahn says I can return with him, but there is
something that keeps me here at the Biron Monastery a little longer.
Please forgive me. There are two orphans here, Songi and Gala. They are
about your age, and they are like sons to me. My obligations here compel
me to stay. You must think that I don't care for you, but that is not
true. I know that the people of the village are supporting you. Please
forgive [letter ends]

Zalan's Letter
==============

To my dearest Yuma and Pepe: If you are reading this letter then
thankfully you are safe. I am writing to you out of concern for your
safety. Jeremi was covered in the Mist, but thanks to a brave Ra-Seru we
are free at last. I lost my memory when the Mist first came, but now I
am completely recovered. I suppose Vidna is covered by the Mist as well.
I hope that the madness of the Seru has not possessed you. I have so
many things to ask. It has been over 10 years since you left for Vidna,
but it seems like only yesterday since we bid farewell, smiling. Yuma,
does the ring I gave you still sparkle? Pepe, how many gems do you know
the name of now? I want to be with you. I want to tell you how much I
love you. Stay healthy and strong. Until we meet again, I won't lose
hope.

Your father, Fat Fingers,

Zalan

---------------
Gate of Shadows
---------------

From Octam, island-hop north then head east to reach the ancient ruins,
the Gate of Shadows. This site was once a holy place, but for what
purpose its ancient owners used it, is unclear. Also unknown is why a
site in the mountains would be named after Tohn, god of the Sea. Legend
has it you can hear the ocean waves if you press your ear against these
massive stones.

-------------
Flying Trains
-------------

The flying trains are a form of transportation unique to the Sebucus
Islands. The Most unusual aspect of the airborne rickshaws is
undoubtedly their crew's appearance. Wearing Flying Seru, crewmen pull a
large gondola along a taut rope suspended in midair. Trains are the only
transportation linking the Sebucus Islands to Karisto Kingdom.

-----
Octam
-----

Located at the center of the Sebucus Islands, Octam is the 1,000-year-
old ancient capital. Recent surveys have detected prehistoric ruins
underneath Octam and...The rest of the pages are missing! They must have
been torn out!

----------
Rem Shrine
----------

The Rem Shrine in Octam is an eminent shrine dedicated to Rem, the god
of time. Rem is said to sleep underground and is worshiped as the
creator of the 99 islands in the Sebucus archipelago, and its 33 hot
springs and 11 volcanoes. As the reader no doubt knows, legend holds
that strange events happen when Rem is angered. Strangely, the Rem
Shrine contains a massive stone identical to the one in Gate of Shadows
to the east.

Book of Prophecy
================

---------------------------
Book of Prophecy - Volume 1
---------------------------

To those who walk in the Mist: This is the First Prophecy. Read it well.
Be warned! Take heed! The Mist is Death in disguise! The Mist is a
cradle of madness! History warns us: The Mist stops time. The Mist
brings chaos. When the evil Mist appears from the west horizon, leave
everything and run for your lives! The god Rem awaits you all, in the
hot depths of the earth. Until the heroes of Ra- Seru defeat the Mist...

----------------------------
Book of Prophecy - Volume 2:
----------------------------

To those who walk in the Mist: This is the Second Prophecy. Read it well.
When reality turns into a nightmare and when nightmares bring despair,
the god Rem is the last hope. Rem leads humans to the depths of the
Earth, and in his bosom destroys the Mist nightmare. But hear this,
heroes of Ra-Seru, those who walk through the Mist! Thou must show a
sign of being the heroes of Ra-Seru! The path to Rem's bosom is ever
steep and hidden in darkness. Gather at the Gate of Shadows! The path to
Rem's bosom can be found only there.

----------------------------
Book of Prophecy - Volume 3:
----------------------------

To those who walk in the Mist: This is the Third Prophecy. Read it well.
The path to Rem's bosom is at the Gate of Shadows. However, the mouth of
the Gate of Shadows is shut. The Gate of Shadows is a stone flower. Only
words carved on the Four Faces make the flower bloom. Speak to the Four
Faces. Find the words engraved in the Face and engrave them in thine
hearts.

----------------------------
Book of Prophecy - Volume 4:
----------------------------

To those who walk in the Mist: This is the Fourth Prophecy. Read it well.
The Gate of Shadows is a stone flower. The words of the Four Faces will
cause a great flower to bloom. However, for the true Gate born in the
flower, seek out the Key. That Key is the Star Pearl, a silent treasure
that slumbers deep under the Palace of Rem. The Star Pearl will open the
true Gate. Heroes, pass and take the ancient path to Rem's bosom.

Saryu's Letter
==============

Harvest Month, Day 5

You are fortunate to be able to give your life for our great mission! Be
happy, Eliza! You have been chosen to be a Seru bride! Tomorrow I will
send guards to retrieve you. Clear your mind, purify your body, and wait.

Bon Saryu, Lord of Ratayu

Official Guide to Sightseeing in Karisto
========================================

---
Sol
---

The world's largest city, Sol, is known by many as Legaia's
entertainment capital. Visitors enjoy the full facilities, theaters,
fighting arenas, amusement parks, and more! Sol is actually a single
giant structure with a history going back hundreds of years. Enjoy the
breathtaking view of Karisto Kingdom from the observatory at the top
floor.

----
Buma
----

Tucked into East Karisto Ravine, Buma is famous for its Genesis Trees
and its lively streets. The beauty of the three cliffside Genesis Trees
paints a picture of awe-inspiring majesty. Houses lining the river have
also helped make Buma famous the world over for its quaint appeal.

--------
Uru Mais
--------

Uru Mais -- the mysterious city of ancient ruins. Who built it? Why? The
answers, like the city itself, are shrouded in mystery. But Uru Mais is
also world-famous for the new type of Seru that come from there. Most
Seru, of course, are born of two Seru parents. But in Uru Mais, a new
type of Seru occasionally appears from out of thin air! Some say they
come from a hidden Seru world somewhere, but their true origin is
unknown. The unshakable fact is that in Uru Mais, Seru appear suddenly
from out of nowhere! Seru trappers sent by the Emperor of Sol monitor
the ruins day and night.

-------------
Nivora Ravine
-------------

Nivora Ravine, famous for its beauty, is located in northern Buma.
Climbers wishing to visit Nivora Ravine should travel through the
limestone cave in northern Buma.

============================
Guidelines for Seru Trapping
============================

Seru come out at midnight! A trapper must therefore patrol Uru Mais only
at sunrise. Uru Mais is off-limits from sunset to sunrise because that
is when the Whispers are frequent. A trapper must never wear a captured
Seru. All Seru should be sent to Sol as soon as they are caught. The
Whispers are the voices of a demon! Trapper, never listen to the
Whispers, even in daytime! A trapper must never touch the three doors on
the side of Uru Mais.

Mrs. Usha's Diary
=================

----------------------
Bounty Month, 12th day
----------------------

We've waited for ten years. Everyone is disheartened, except my husband.
I must do something. With things the way they are, I must be strong.

----------------------
Bounty Month, 16th day
----------------------

Assistant 1 says he saw a blinding light shoot into the sky from Sol.
Maybe it's the revival of the Genesis Tree. If so, the heroes should be
coming soon.

----------------------
Bounty Month, 19th day
----------------------

Hooray! The heroes have arrived. But to our surprise... ...the warriors,
wearing Ra-Seru, all look so young. One is a girl, the other two, boys.
But appearances can be deceiving, and these three have made an amazing
journey. We can trust our future to those three! I know we can!

----------------------
Bounty Month, 21st day
----------------------

The three left for the ruins of Uru Mais. I hope they are safe.

---------------------
Bounty Month 23rd day
---------------------

They came back from Uru Mais. They seem even stronger now. But they also
seem downhearted. Perhaps it is just my imagination.

----------------------
Bounty Month, 24th day
----------------------

The three have left for Nivora Ravine with the TimeSpace Bombs. I hope
they are safe. But most of all, I'm worried whether the bombs that my
husband made will work.

----------------------
Bounty Month, 29th day
----------------------

Oh, what wonderful news! Everyone here is filled with joy! The Floating
Castle is destroyed. The three heroes must have done it. The Mist is
gone! Now we can go outside. Vahn, Noa, Gala, thank you so much!
