    ~~~ Final Fantasy II: Origins Script ~~~
    
    Transcribed by Agent0042
    
    Note: This script is based on the "Origins" version of Final Fantasy II,
    released for the original Playstation. If you're used to the GBA version,
    sorry, but it's "Gus" and "Mindu" here, not "Guy" and "Minwu." Oh,
    and one other thing, this is about the original Final Fantasy II, and
    not about IV. IV was originally released in the United States under the
    name II, but now goes by its correct name.
    
    Note about the format:
    
    Final Fantasy II makes heavy use of a system called Keywords.
    Using "Ask" with certain characters will reveal key bits of info
    or advance the plot. This is depicted as follows:

    == Final Fantasy II ==
    
    In a distant land... The peace enjoyed by the people came to a crashing
    end. The emperor of Palamecia summoned fiends from another
    dimension... And the empire launched its campaign for world conquest.
    In response, a rebel force arose in the kingdom of Fynn. In the ensuing
    clash between rebel and empire, Castle Fynn was taken. The rebels
    were forced to retreat to the remote town of Altair. Amidst the chaos,
    four youths also fled the occupied Fynn. They were childhood friends,
    now orphaned and homeless... And they suddenly found themselves
    running for their lives.
    
    
    Imperial Soldier: "You've come a long way from Fynn, but you've nowhere left
    to run!"
    
    (A group of imperial soldiers surrounds the party on both sides.)
    
    Maria: "Firion!"
    Gus: "No escape!"
    Imperial Soldier: "By imperial order, all who defy us shall be put to death."
    "You've brought this upon yourselves. You peasants never learn, do you?"
    
    (Battle with Black Knight x 4. No matter what actions the party takes, defeat
    is swift and inevitable.)
    
    Defeated...
    
    (Scene change. In a small room, a white mage named Mindu is shown
    reviving Firion.)
    
    Hilda: "Will he survive, Mindu?"
    Mindu: "Yes, Your Highness, he should regain consciousness in no time. I
    feel strong energy from him."
    Hilda: "That is good. On the retreat of Fynn, I found him and the other two
    lying in their own blood..."
    Mindu: (nods) "We should leave him for now. This magic sigil will strengthen
    his life force."
    Hilda: "Thank you, MIndu. That is wonderful." "Well, let's join the others.
    They must be waiting for us." "Once the empire completes the Dreadnought
    in Bafsk, it may well launch all-out war. We must move quickly!"
    
    (They exit the room and Firion wakes up.)
    
    Firion: "Wh-Where am I?" ! "Where is everyone else?" "Leon!" "Maria!" "Gus!"
    
    (He exits the room and quickly finds the others in the adjacent hallway.)
    
    Firion: !
    Maria: ! "Firion! I"m so glad you're alive! I thought I'd..." *sob*
    Firion: "Maria!" "Gus!" "Where is Leon?"
    Gus: "Fynn princess saved us." "But Leon not here."
    Firion: "I see..." "I'm sure he's fine."
    
    (They join together as a group and enter Hilda's council chambers.)
    
    Hilda: "I see you have regained your strength."
    Firion: "Your Highness, please allow us to join the rebel forces!"
    Hilda: "Nonsense. You would only waste your lives in the war." "You must
    go home at once."
    Maria: "But, Your Highness, we no longer have homes. And our parents,
    they're..."
    Hilda: ! "Oh... I am very sorry for your losses." "You are welcome to stay
    in Altair. You need only know our secret code to live here."
    
    (The player gains control of the party at this point and can move them about
    freely. Firion is in the lead by default.)
    
    *Mindu: "I see your destiny. It is intertwined with mine." "You must go to
    Fynn. It will lead to your desired path."
    
    *Hilda: "The password is Wild Rose. Don't forget."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Wild Rose
    
    Hilda: "The Wild Rose is Fynn's crest, strong and beautiful as she once was."
    "But now... Oh, what will become of Fynn?" "I hear captives are being
    gathered in Fynn. Speaking of which, Maria's brother has been reported
    missing." "Perhaps he is being held in Fynn. Monsters prowl the city now, so
    even approaching it is dangerous."
    
    Ask - Mindu - Wild Rose
    
    Mindu: "So you've been using the password, have you?" "Continue doing so.
    It can unseal the lips of many who would not otherwise offer the time of day."
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    - Altair Strategy Room -
    
    Rebel Soldier: "To the east of here is the port town of Paloom. But you can't
    cross the lake without a canoe."
    
    Soldiers at Door: "This is where the rebel army's strategies are made."
    
    Wizard: "You wish to go to Fynn?" "Oh no, you shouldn't! The place is
    crawling with the monsters the emperor brought." "You'd be lucky to make
    it to the village of Gatrea up north!"
    
    
    - Altair Rebel Headquarters -
    
    Rebel Soldier: "This is the rebels' hideout and its headquarters."
    
    Man: "Prince Gordon of Kas'ion Kingdom is here in Altair. But he seems to
    have lost all of his confidence."
    
    Girl: "Princess Hilda fled Fynn when it was sacked by the imperial army,
    and so she came to Altair." "She has taken command of the rebel army in
    place of the injured King."
    
    
    - King's Room -
    
    Rebel Soldiers: "This is the King's room. Majesty took an injury on the way
    from Fynn in his escape."
    
    King: "I was hit in the back by an arrow." "I have given my daughter, Hilda,
    the command of the army."
    
    
    - Altair Village -
    
    Pavel: "I'm Pavel, the thief of all thieves. I've been making tons by stealing
    from the empire's vault!"
    
    Ask - Pavel - Wild Rose
    
    Pavel: "I don't steal from the Rebels. I'm from Fynn too, but the emperor's
    dogs took my house and I haven't been back there since."
    
    Man by Fountain: "This is the town of Altair." "The imperial army hasn't
    arrived here yet, but we cannot hope for that to last forever."
    
    Boy by Flower Patch: "Tobul the smith in the armor shop can work
    wonders with his tools." "But it looks like he's not doing so well these
    days."
    
    Man at Northeast: "Pavel's a thief, but he's no baddie. He only steals
    from those with the empire."
    
    Gordon: "I am Gordon. I was a prince of Kas'ion. But now, I am nothing
    more than a coward." "I left my brother Scott to die on the battlefield."
    
    Ask - Gordon - Wild Rose
    
    Gordon: "I see... So you're volunteering, then?" "I was so afraid Hilda
    would reject me that I stayed here, wasting away..."
    
    
    - Altair Weapons Shop -
    
    Tobul: "Ooh, I'm only a worthless old geezer..."
    
    Ask - Tobul - Wild Rose
    
    Tobul: "I'm no shaking bones and skin! I'm Tobul, the master smith
    for the rebel force!"
    
    
    - Gatrea -
    
    Boy: "This is the village of Gatrea. Fynn is across the lake, see?"
    
    Old Man: "The gates of Castle Fynn have been locked by the
    imperial army occupying it. We can't go in there." "The town has
    changed, too. Now you'll only see imperial soldiers and monsters
    there!"
    
    Man: "There is a pub on the outskirts of Fynn. When the empire
    invaded, the barkeep didn't make it out in time." "Now he has to
    serve imperial soldiers all day long."
    
    Woman by Armor Shop: "The imperial army hasn't come as far as
    Altair and Gatrea here, but once the construction of the Dreadnought
    is finished..."
    
    
    - Fynn Village -
    
    Soldier: "Rebels! Meet your fate!"
    
    
    (Talking with any soldier in the city will result in this message
    followed by a battle with a Captain in which defeat is likely swift
    and inevitable. Should your party by some chance be strong enough
    to win, the soldier will nevertheless remain.)
    
    
    - Fynn Pub -
    
    Master: "Hey, you, don't come past the counter." "I tell ya', the
    imperial soldiers got no courtesy whatsoever..."
    
    Ask - Master - Wild Rose
    
    Master: "There's a secret door in this wall. Inside the room is an
    injured soldier that I've been taking care of." "He's in your charge
    now." (He departs.)
    
    - Fynn Pub - Secret Room -
    
    Knight: "If you intend to sell me to the emperor... kill me. You're
    not taking me alive."
    
    Ask - Knight - Wild Rose
    
    Knight: ! "Ah, you're rebels, aren't you?" "I am Scott, prince of
    Kas'ion."
    Firion: !!! "You're Prince Scott? We heard you were killed in
    combat."
    Scott: "Yes, I am. But my strength is fading." "I've a favor to ask.
    Deliver a message to my brother, Gordon." "Tell him that he has all
    the makings of a great leader. He should believe in himself."
    "And tell the king of Fynn that Count Borgen serves the empire
    now. That traitor is behind Fynn's downfall!" "And to Hilda..."
    "My love will be with her always." "No, do not tell her that. I am a
    dying man." "She should find another love."
    Maria: "Your highness, do you know a man named Leon? He is my
    brother."
    Scott: "I am sorry, but... I don't." (He gets up out of bed.) "Please,
    take this Ring. It should prove useful." "Oh, how tired I am..."
    "Please let me rest now." (He collapses and exclamation marks
    appear over the heads of the party. He vanishes.)
    
    Obtained Ring
    
    - Altair Village -
    
    Item - Gordon - Ring
    
    Gordon: "Th-That ring belonged to Scott! So he said I should
    regain my... Thank you, brave ones."
    
    - Altair Strategy Room -
    
    Item - Hilda - Ring
    
    Hilda: ! "That Ring..." "It's Scott's, isn't it? Is he alive?"
    Firion: "We met the Prince in Fynn. But after he gave us this
    Ring, his strength gave out, and..."
    Hilda: "So he gave it to you before he died." "Did he... say
    anything?"
    Firion: "No, Your Highness. Nothing." "Your Highness, please
    keep this Ring."
    Hilda: "No, it should remain with you. It belongs with someone
    of valor." "So you managed to infiltrate Fynn and return safely.
    I underestimated you." "Perhaps you can help us. We need
    someone to find Myhril, the enchanted metal."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Mythril
    
    Hilda: "At the battle of Fynn, the empire's equipment far
    outclassed ours. We stood no chance against it." "Their
    forces were armed with weapons and armor made of
    Mythril." "They must have found a Mythril mine somewhere."
    "I ordered a man in Salamand named Josef to investigate
    this possibility, but he has yet to report back." "Please go to
    Salamand with Mindu and look into the matter."
    
    Mindu: "It is good to see you safely back from Fynn." "I
    wish to fight alongside you. I offer my canoe as well."
    
    Mindu joined the party!
    Obtained Canoe.
    
    
    - Alair Strategy Room -
    
    Hilda: "The empire suffered considerable losses in the
    last great battle in Fynn." "To make up for them, the
    imperials are now building the Dreadnought in Bafsk."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Mythril
    
    Hilda: "Please find that Mythril as soon as possible!"
    
    Ask - Hilda - Dreadnought
    
    Hilda: "The Dreadnought is [sic] massive heavily
    armored Airship. The empire has enslaved the people
    of Bafsk to construct it."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Airship
    
    Hilda: "A man named Cid once led Fynn's Order of the White
    Knights." "He built and airship and eventually grew obsessed
    with it." "He left Fynn and settled in Poft, where he now
    ferries travelers for a fee." "I hear every gil he earns goes
    straight back into the Airship to improve its performance."
    
    Rebel Soldier: "Please bring Mythril to Altair!"
    
    Wizard: "Going to Salamand, are you? Go to the eastern
    port of Paloom to find a ship that will take you there."
    "Youngsters like you would never make it on foot!"
    
    Soldiers at Door: "Our weapons are no match for the
    imperial army's." "If only we had Mythril!"
    
    - Altair Rebel Headquarters -
    
    Soldier: "The empire began the construction of their
    Dreadnought in Bafsk, with the Bafsk townsmen as
    their slaves."
    
    Man: "With that Canoe, you should be able to cross the
    lake on the east to reach Paloom."
    
    Girl: "If you give Tobul the Mythril, he will forge you some
    top-notch weapons and armor!"
    
    - Altair King's Room -
    
    Soldiers at Door: "His Majesty is very pleased with your
    work. Keep it up!"
    
    King: "Scott has died... I see..." "He had asked for Hilda's
    hand in marriage, but he died before hearing her answer."
    "In my eyes, he was most suited to my daughter. It is
    indeed regrettable."
    
    Ask - King - Wild Rose
    
    King: "The proud crest of Fynn was trampled by the filthy
    feet of the imperial soldiers!" "There must have been a
    traitor." "It is simply unthinkable that our army could lose
    to them!" "What? It was Borghen who betrayed us? Curses!"
    
    Ask - King - Mythril
    
    King: "Much Mythril was mined and used in ancient times."
    "The cavern behind the Semitt Falls on the north was a known
    mine. There are records of it."
    
    Ask - King - Dreadnought
    
    King: "Th-The empire is building what? No one has informed
    me of any such thing... Didn't want to worry me, I suppose."
    
    - Altair Village -
    
    Ask - Gordon - Mythril
    
    Gordon: "Scott wielded a Mythril sword, which was the
    treasure of Kas'ion. It was truly a magnificent sword."
    
    Ask - Gordon - Dreadnought
    
    Gordon: "Yes, I have heard the rumors... Once it is finished,
    it is sure to destroy everything in its path. But what can I do
    to stop it?"
    
    Man by Fountain: "I wonder when all of this killing will end
    and peace [sic] returns to us all."'
    
    Boy by Weapons Shop: "Mythril? Is that food? Gimme
    some, too!"
    
    Boy near White Magic Shop: "Take a ship ride from Paloom
    to Poft. From there head north and you will reach Salamand."
    
    - Altair Weapons Shop -
    
    Ask - Tobul - Mythril
    
    Tobul: [sic] "Only if we had Mythril to forge weapons and
    armor!"
    
    - Paloom Village -
    
    Pirate by Inn: "The empire hasn't attacked Paloom and Poft...
    yet."
    
    Pirate by Fountain: "If you take a boat from here, you'll reach
    Poft."
    
    Pirate above Inn: "Hey, sugar! Why don't you join me for a
    drink?"
    Maria: "Eww! Get away from me!"
    
    Pirate by House: "I hear Bafsk and Salamand have been taken
    by the empire."
    
    Pirate above Weapons Shop: "This is Paloom, a little port town,
    as you can see."
    
    Girl below Armor Shop: "Paloom is a town of freedom. Why
    don't you live with me, handsome?"
    
    Man at Entrance: "Hey, are you looking for a ride? Only 32 gil
    to Poft!"
    
    - Yes
    No
    
    "Deal! Okay, I'll see you at my ship docked outside this town."
    
    - Poft Village -
    
    Girl at Entrance: "This is the port of Poft. To the north is
    Salamand, and to the east is Bafsk."
    
    Man by Pub: "Hey, are you looking for a ride? Only 32 gil
    to Paloom!"
    
    Yes
    - No
    
    Pirate by Item Shop: "Have you seen the airship?" "That
    belongs to a guy named Cid, and he's the only one who
    can control that thing."
    
    Pirate in Field: "Cid? You'll find him in the pub here. He'll let
    you ride on the Airship if you pay him."
    
    Pirate by Forest: "The town of Bafsk is to our east, but it's
    been occupied by the imperial army." "They're building
    something horribly big."
    
    - Poft Pub -
    
    (The various pub-goers say the same thing as the Pirate
    by Forest.)
    
    Cid: "Hey, wanna ride my Airship? You pay the fee and I'll
    take you anywhere."
    
    Ask - Cid - Dreadnought
    
    Cid: "Hey, what's so great about that mess of a machine?
    Nothing can beat my beauty!"
    
    Ask - Cid - Airship
    
    Cid: "If you wanna ride the Airship, give your gil to the guy
    behind me."
    
    Cid's buddy: "You want to ride the only airship in the world?"
    "We'll take you anywhere in a flash! Of course, that requires
    some you-know-what."
    
    Yes
    - No
    
    - Bafsk Village -
    
    Villagers and Soldiers: "......"
    
    Dark Knight: "No dawdling here! Away!"
    
    (There is a man here who is a Rebel spy. Talking to
    him or asking about either Wild Rose or Dreadnought
    will result in the following...)
    
    Man: "Fool! Don't speak to me now, the Dark Knight is
    here! Don't get both of us killed!"
    
    - Salamand Village -
    
    Man at Entrance: "The men of Salamand have been enslaved
    to work in the cavern behind the Semitt Falls." "Please help us!"
    
    Man by Inn: "Beyond the mountains south of Salamand is the
    Semitt Falls. The empire has been mining Mythril in the cave
    above."
    
    Woman by Josef's House: "I love Josef, but I am afraid I will
    only be in his way if I am at his side."
    
    - Josef's House -
    
    Josef: "Yes?'
    
    Ask - Josef - Wild Rose
    
    Josef: "Princess Hilda sent you here? A group of half-pints
    like you? I find that hard to believe."
    
    Ask - Josef - Dreadnought
    
    Josef: "I know what it is, it's that monster of an Airship."
    
    Ask - Josef - Airship
    
    Josef: "I know who's the Airship expert, but I'm not telling
    you now."
    
    Ask - Josef - Mythril
    
    Josef: "M-Mythril? Well, um... I haven't found any yet. I've
    got clues, though..." "Before I go further, I need you to prove
    yourselves." "The people of Salamand have been put to work
    in the cavern behind Semitt Falls. If you want to earn my trust,
    save them."
    
    - Semitt Falls B3 -
    
    Slaves: "Please help me!"
    
    Molly: "Waaa!"
    
    Pavel: "You're Firion, right? We met in Altair. Say, maybe you
    could help me out." "This girl here is Molly, Josef's daughter."
    "Borghen took her and threatened to kill her unless Josef did
    as he said." "Why am I here, you ask?" "Well, I learned this
    place bore Mythril ore, so I came to get some for myself."
    "But they caught me, and here I am." "Hey, do me a favor and
    distract the guards. I'll get Molly and the others outta here!"
    "See ya later!" (He and the others leave.)
    
    - Semitt Falls B5 -

    Wives by Inn: "My husband has returned at last! Thank you
    so much!"
    
    Boy at Northwest: "You will need the Snowcraft to travel on
    the snowfields. I hear Josef keeps one in the cave behind
    Semitt Falls." "There should be a blue rock on the cave's
    first level. Check the walls nearby."
    
    - Josef's House -
    
    Molly: "Thank you... for saving me."
    
    Josef: "Thank you so much for saving my daughter! Borghen

    - Altair Strategy Room -
    
    Item - Hilda - Mythril
    
    Hilda: "Is that Mythril?" "Wonderful! Please go to the weapon
    shop and give it to Tobul." "This is marvelous! Now we can
    fight the empire on more equal ground."
    
    - Altair Weapons Shop -
    
    Item - Tobul - Mythril
    
    Tobul: "Well, now! Is that Mythril in your hands?" "Good job,
    laddie. Now I can forge swords, knives, spears and shields...
    all better than ever!" "Buy my weapons and armor at the shops.
    Ooh, this is exciting!"
    
    Tobul: "I'm busy, don't you see? Shoo! Shoo!"
    
    - Altair Village -

    "And what's this? A maiden warrior as well? Most impressive!"
    
    Ask - Gordon - Dreadnought
    
    Gordon: "Now you are off to destroy the Dreadnought as well?
    Oh, if I only had half the strength you had..."
    
    Man at Northeast: "Thanks to the Mythril you've brought back,
    Tobul has been able to forge wonderful weapons and armor
    for the rebel forces."
    
    Boy by Weapons Shop: "Is Altair going to be taken over by the
    empire?"
    
    Boy by Fountain: "The construction of the Dreadnought is taking
    place in Bafsk."
    
    - Altair Rebel Headquarters -

    Wizard: "Brave warriors, please destroy the Dreadnought before
    it is completed."
    
    Boy by Wizard: "I'm gonna become a rebel and fight against
    the empire!"
    
    Soldier: "I've heard the princess of Fynn has formed a rebel
    force against the empire." "That is why I am here--- to fight the
    empire!"
    
    Boy by Soldier: "Blow up the Dreadnought!"
    
    Soldier at North Stairway: "Bafsk is under the control of the Dark
    Knight. Its townsmen have been hypnotized."
    
    - Altair King's Room -
    
    Soldiers at Door: "The king is greatly reassured by your
    wonderful work."
    
    - Altair Strategy Room -
    
    Soldiers at Door: "Please destroy the Dreadnought!"
    
    Wizard: "Ooooh, I see it! Something enormous and horrible
    will be shooting across the sky!"
    
    Soldier: "Once the Dreadnought is finished, the empire will
    surely come to take over Altair and Poft."
    
    Hilda: "I hear the Dark Knight leading the Dreadnought's
    construction is quite an extraordinary man." "Fortunately for
    us, he was called back to Palamecia. Perhaps they are
    scrambling after the loss of the Mythril." "This is our chance
    to infiltrate the Dreadnought and destroy it."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Dreadnought
    
    Hilda: "One of our comrades in Bafsk has found a way into
    the Dreadnought. Please go and destroy it." "Even delaying
    its completion would be an immense help." "You and Mindu
    can do it. I have faith in you."
    
    
    - Bafsk -
    
    Townsperson: "You'll need a Pass to enter the Dreadnought."
    
    Townsperson: "You're rebels, aren't you? Please destroy the
    Dreadnought."
    
    Townsperson: "There is a rebel spy disguised as an imperial
    soldier. Go to him!"
    
    Townsperson: "We're enslaved to work here. But I don't remember
    anything about it when the Dark Knight was commanding us."
    
    Borghen: "Come on, you lazy good-for-nothings! Move it!"
    "Mooooove it!" "Finish its construction as quickly as your
    pathetic selves can! You're going to advance my position in the
    imperial army."
    
    Soldier: "We need the Dark Knight!"
    
    Soldier: "Come on! Move it! I swear, everyone refuses to work
    under General Borghen!"
    
    Soldier: "General Borghen must be firm with them!"
    
    Spy: "Ever since General Borghen came as the Dark Knight's
    replacement, it's been easy for us here." "But he sure seems like an
    idiot--- oops, you never heard that."
    
    Ask - Spy - Wild Rose
    
    Spy: "Ah, comrades! I wasn't able to move around when the Dark Knight
    was commanding this operation." "Borghen is only a pig-headed fool.
    He doesn't care about anything but himself."
    
    Ask - Spy - Dreadnought
    
    Spy: "You must be here to destroy the Dreadnought. I'm a spy for the
    rebel forces, an ally of yours." "You'll find the entrance to the sewers
    ahead. It should lead you to the Dreadnought." "Well, enough talk.
    Don't want to rouse suspicion. Good luck." (He leaves.)
    
    
    - Bafsk Cave -
    
    Dark Knight: "The Dreadnought is complete." "You fools thought I'd
    return to Palamecia before my duty was done?" "Give up. You stand no
    chance against the emperor." "I will leave you to think it over. Farewell
    for now." (He exits.)
    
    Borghen: "Take that!" (chuckles maniacally)
    
    (A cutscene outside shows the launch of the Dreadnought.
    The party heads to a room inside the cave and opens a
    treasure chest.)
    
    Obtained Pass from the treasure chest.
    
    
    - Bafsk -
    
    Townsperson: "The world is coming to an end!"
    
    Townsperson: "The Dreadnought is now finished! And so is our world!"
    
    Townsperson: "Go back to Altair. Maybe the princess can figure out
    how to destroy the Dreadnought."
    
    Townsperson: "The Dreadnought headed towards Poft."
    
    Townsperson: "Ask Cid what the Dreadnought's weakness is."
    
    
    - Poft -
    
    Girl: "The Dreadnought came and... it opened fire, killing everyone!"
    
    
    - Poft Pub -
    
    Ask - Cid - Dreadnought
    
    Cid: "You only need to blow up the engine of the Dreadnought to blow
    it to smithereens!"
    
    Ask - Cid - Airship
    
    Cid: "The Airship runs on Sunfire, as does the Dreadnought."
    
    Ask - Cid - Sunfire
    
    Cid: "The Sunfire can't be controlled easily. You get too much flame and
    it might just blow up in your face!"
    
    
    - Paloom -
    
    Pirate by Item Shop: "Ow! I'm telling you, I'm not gonna make it."
    
    Pirate near Weapons Shop: "My sweet daughter. She... she died!"
    
    Pirate above Weapons Shop: "The Dreadnought attacked us!"
    
    
    - Altair Rebel Base -
    
    Girl: "Maybe Cid knows the Dreadnought's weakpoint." "After all, he did
    build the Airship! I'm sure he has all the answers to your machinery
    questions."
    
    Boy: "All the people outside the town were killed!"
    
    Woman: "The Dreadnought attacked us here. But our headquarters
    somehow survived."
    
    Man: "We must stop the Dreadnought to stop the destruction."
    
    Wizard: "Dear lord, I ask thee to save the king's life."
    
    Boy: "Waaaa! That was so scary!"
    
    Rebel Soldier: "The Dreadnought finally came to Altair, but fortunately
    our hideout suffered no damage." "We gathered all the townsfolk to
    take shelter here."
    
    Wandering Rebel Soldier: "We will hold up here until you return."
    
    - Altair Strategy Room -
    
    Soldiers at Door: "How can we go against that monstrous Dreadnought?"
    
    Wizard: "I knew it! Everything was just too much for you lads to handle."
    
    Wandering Soldier: "The Dreadnought has been finally finished..."
    
    Hilda: "Many people were hurt in the Dreadnought's attack. Father is
    heartbroken and his condition has worsened." "He thinks himself near
    death..."
    Maria: "Mindu... is there anything we can do?"
    Mindu: (shakes his head) "All living creatures must die. It cannot be
    helped." "But my duty is to save those who are suffering." "Go on,
    continue your journey. I will remain here and take care of the injured
    ones." "Firion. The Dreadnought must be destroyed. We cannot endure
    this much longer."
    
    Mindu left the party.
    
    
    - Altair King's Room -
    
    Soldiers at Door: "The king's condition is worsening."
    
    Mindu: "It is his spirit that is most hurt, not his body." "This is not
    something a physician can cure."
    
    Ask - Mindu - Dreadnought
    
    Mindu: "The Dreadnought and the Airship both operate on the same
    mechanical principles."
    
    Ask - Mindu - Airship
    
    Mindu: "Cid gave up everything he had for the Airship... His knighthood,
    honors, family and all."
    
    Ask - Mindu - Sunfire
    
    Mindu: "Every three years, a ritual of fire is held." "The Sunfire is
    transferred to Egil's Torch so its altar can be purified."
    
    King: "Many good men died in the Dreadnought's attack. I sometimes
    wonder if we should surrender to the empire."
    
    Ask - King - Airship
    
    King: "The Cid I knew was a kind, righteous man, but that all changed
    after he became involved with the Airship."
    
    Ask - King - Sunfire
    
    King: "Scott sealed the gates of Castle Kas'ion to protect the Sunfire,
    in case his army was defeated." "You will need the Goddess's Bell to
    lift the doors again."
    
    Ask - King - Goddess's Bell
    
    King: "Only the Kas'ion clan know the bell's whereabouts."
    
    Ask - Mindu - Goddess's Bell
    
    Mindu: "Gordon should know where the bell is... But we do not know
    where he has disappeared to." "Someone who has been close to Scott
    and Gordon may know where it is." Princess Hilda, perhaps?"
    
    
    - Altair Strategy Room -
    
    Hilda: "Thanks to Mindu, Father seems to be in much better condition
    these days."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Sunfire
    
    Hilda: "Sunfire is Kas'ion's symbol. Its light illuminates the castle's
    ground floor even today." "I have heard stories about the flame from
    Scott and Gordon." "For instance, no ordinary torch can carry it."
    Firion: "Perhaps the Sunfire can destroy the empire's Dreadnought."
    Hilda: "Perhaps it can!" "Please go to Kas'ion at once. Cid should
    provide you with transportation." "But... I wonder how the magical
    flame can be brought back?"
    
    Ask - Hilda - Goddess's Bell
    
    Hilda: "Yes, Scott and Gordon have mentioned that before." "Kas'ion's
    doors only respond to the voice of a family member or to the sound
    of a magical bell." "The bell is supposedly hidden deep within a cave
    in the snowlands. You do not intend to go there, I hope." "Oh, if
    Gordon were only here, you wouldn't have to risk your lives like this!"
    "I wonder where he has gone..." "Well, regret is pointless now. I can
    only pray for your safe return." "Josef knows the snowfields as he
    does his own garden. He may have some good advice to offer."
    
    
    - Salamand - Josef's House -
    
    Ask - Josef - Goddess's Bell
    
    Josef: "You will not make it to the ice cavern without my snowcraft."
    "I hid the snowcraft inside the mines." "On the first level, a blue rock
    marks the entry to a secret room to the right. It's in there." "Well,
    let's go!"
    
    Josef joined the party!
    
    Molly: "Daddy, please come back soon!"
    
    
    - Semitt Falls -
    
    When Josef pressed in a small rock, a hidden passageway
    appeared.
    
    Josef: "The snowcraft is hidden in the back of this room."

    Giant Beaver: "Grr, rar, Grrragh?"
    Gus: "I understand animal words." "I speak with him."
    
    Ask - Giant Beaver - Goddess's Bell
    
    Gus: "Opening in right wall. Monster protecting bell. Bell
    inside wall."
    
    (If you speak with any of the other Giant Beavers...)
    Giant Beaver: "Grrargh! Rrrargh!"
    
    (The party proceeds...)
    
    It is the guardian of the Goddess's Bell, Adamantoise!
    
    (Battle with Adamantoise)
    
    Something is embedded in the wall. It is the Goddess's
    Bell!
    
    Obtained Goddess's Bell.
    
    (An opening appears that leads the party back to Snow
    Cavern B1. At the stairway to the exit...)
    
    Borghen: "Damn you! You've ruined me!" "The emperor
    will not tolerate failure. I can't go back now." "Well, if I'm
    going down, you're coming with me!" (laughs maniacally)
    
    (Battle with Borghen. Being little more than a joke boss,
    he is dispatched with haste. Following the battle, he falls
    and the party sidesteps him and begins to exit the cave.
    But a little ways down, Borghen gets back up...)
    
    Borghen: "So you got me, but I'm not going alone. Take my
    final gift..." "It's going to be a hell of a ride!" (laughs
    maniacally) "Ha ha! See you down there!"
    
    (He falls and disappears. A boulder appears and begins
    rolling towards the party.)
    
    Josef: "No, it's coming too fast!" (He holds it back and
    shouts to the rest of the group.) "Now, go! Run!"
    Gus: "You coming with us. We want you come."
    Josef: "Just... go... I can't hold up...too much longer!"
    (Firion approaches, but Josef tells him to stop.) "Go! Now!"
    (The rest of the party heads towards the exit.) "It's up to you
    now... Molly, I'm always with you!" (The boulder slides down
    and crushes him.)
    Firion: "Josef!" (Josef disappears and the party heads on its way.)

    Go take it to Kas'ion as soon as possible."
    
    Wife: "Josef died?"
    
    Man at Northwest: "The forest south of Kas'ion is known to be
    a territory of this weird bird, Chocobo."
    
    
    - Josef's House -
    
    Girl in Josef's House: "Oh, Josef... I will take care of Molly in his place."
    "I am sure he will pleased to know that in heaven..."
    
    Molly: "Daddy isn't gonna come back, is he?"
    
    
    - Altair Strategy Room -
    
    Hilda: "So Josef gave his life for that bell..." "We cannot let Josef die
    in vain. Please take that bell to Castle Kas'ion at once."
    
    Hilda: "The Goddess's Bell will allow you to enter Castle Kas'ion.
    You must depart at once." "We will meet you there on Cid's airship."
    
    
    - Poft Pub -
    
    Cid's buddy: "You want to ride the only airship in the world?" "We'll
    take you anywhere in a flash! Of course, that requires some
    you-know-what."

    Gordon: "I thought I was the only one who could retrieve the
    Sunfire, so I came back here." "I came looking for Egil's Torch,
    but I couldn't get past the monsters dwelling here." "I couldn't
    just leave empty-handed, so I've been standing here, stuck."
    Maria: "But you know this castle quite well, don't you?"
    Gordon: (shakes his head) "This castle is full of secrets that
    even I don't fully comprehend." "I cannot guide you, but will you
    take me with you?" (The party nods.)
    
    Gordon joined the party!
    
    
    - Castle Kas'ion 4F -
    
    It is the guardian of Egil's Torch, Shrieker!

    (Firion collects the Sunfire.)
    
    The sunfire was moved to Egil's Torch!
    
    (The party exits Castle Kas'ion and the Dreadnought is
    shown chasing the Airship. It extends a claw and seizes
    it. The party is left to make their way on their own back
    to Altair. They can either walk, or catch a chocobo...)
    
    
    - Chocobo Forest -
    
    (The party discovers a waiting chocobo, which isn't very
    difficult to capture.)
    
    You've caught a Chocobo!
    
    
    (The party makes their way back. When they finally
    dismount from the chocobo, it flies back to the Chocobo

    Boy: "Please help Princess Hilda!"
    
    Woman: "Please destroy the Dreadnought with that Sunfire, so it can
    never come back!"
    
    Man: "I could not stop her from boarding the Airship... And now the
    empire captured her!"
    
    Man: "Wait! Isn't that the Sunfire of Kas'ion?"
    
    Wizard: "I hear the empire has a supply station, far north of Fynn.
    Maybe the Dreadnought is there now."
    
    Boy: "Waaa! Princess Hilda!"
    
    Wandering Soldier: "The princess took Cid's Airship to meet you at
    Castle Kas'ion."

    (He moves out of the way. If you talk to him again...)
    
    Soldier: "Oh, time for the next watch. If you will excuse me,
    sirs..." (He exits the Dreadnought.)
    
    (If you talk with any other soldiers on the vessel, you just end
    up getting into another battle. The party proceeds to a lower
    level and finds Hilda and Cid inside a prison cell.)
    
    
    - Dreadnought 2F -
    
    The iron bars were forced open!

    when we came for you..." "Well, let's go! Hurry!"
    
    Cid: "I'll take the princess to the Airship. Look for the engine and
    toss the Sunfire into it!" "This biggie will blow up then, so I'll have
    my baby ready for takeoff!"
    
    (He and Hilda leave. If the party returns to the place where they
    entered, there is now a new soldier blocking the way.)
    
    
    - Dreadnought 1F -
    
    Soldier: "Hey, no bumming around here! The Princess of Fynn
    escaped!"
    
    (The party makes their way through the Dreadnought and
    eventually reaches the engine room.)

    Firion: "We've got no time for that now!" "Let's catch Cid's
    airship!"
    
    (They race out of the Dreadnought and it explodes, completely

    to take command of my army. And please, watch over Hilda."
    Gordon: "With my life, Your Majesty!"
    King: "Mindu, I believe the time has come to unseal the Ultima
    Scroll."
    Mindu: "Yes, Your Majesty. I shall depart immediately."
    King: "Firion, go to Deist." 'Deist's Dragoons were decimated, but
    there must be some survivors." "We will need the help of both the
    Wind Drakes and the Dragoons." "Together, you can restore peace
    to our people." "Be strong and keep your faith." "Please...take care
    of Hilda..." (He collapses.)
    Soldier: "Your Majesty!" (The King disappears.)

    Numerous NPCs: "His Majesty has passed away... how are we to
    overcome this sorrow?"

    - Altair King's Room -
    
    Gordon: "When the emperor invaded Deist, people only thought it
    only [sic] a minor skirmish." "But his aim was to exterminate the
    Dragoons!"
    
    Ask - Gordon - Dragoons
    
    Gordon: "I hear even the youngest of Dragoons can communicate with
    his Wind Drake. But I wonder, can humans really speak to dragons?"
    
    Ask - Gordon - Wind Drake
    
    Gordon: "You may find a Wind Drake in Deist. If you do, it will surely
    become a great asset." "Go to Paloom and look for a boat that will
    take you to Deist."

    about to set sail for that very destination. Care to come along?"
    Maria: "Umm. There's something about this woman..." "I don't know if
    we should do this."
    Firion: "Hey, but it's for free! Miss, we'd like to take up your offer. Please
    take us to Deist!"
    Leila: "Now you're talkin'. I'll be waitin' for you outside the town, okay?"

    (Battle with Pirate X 8. They are easily dispatched, each having only
    minimal HP.)

    waitin' for? Don't you want to kill us for what we did?" "What? You want us
    to join your fight against the empire? With rogues like us?" "All right, fellas,
    to your posts! Buddy, we'll go anywhere in this world with you!"
    
    Leila joined the party!

    Child: “Oh, I thought you were the stupid imperial soldiers! I’m glad you

    Ask - Child - Wind Drake
    
    Child: “The Wind Drake is inside this room. But Mommy says it’s dying...”
    “Tell me it’s not!”
    
    Mom: “It seems my son is being a nuisance. Please pardon him.” “My husband
    was a Dragoon, but he was killed by the imperials. Only my son and I survived.”
    “In the room behind us is the last Wind Drake. It has been trying to speak to
    us, but I cannot understand it.” “Every Dragoon carries a special Pendant. I’ve
    heard one was lost in the cavern north of here, only a couple of levels down.”
    “With that pendant, we could speak with the Wind Drake. Would you mind
    looking for it?”
    
    Ask - Mom - Wind Drake or Dragoons
    
    Mom: “The Dragoons fought gallantly, but the battle turned against them when
    the emperor poisoned the Wind Drakes’ drinking water.” “All the drakes died
    one by one, and the Dragoons, without their drakes, lost their edge in battle.”
    
    
    - Castle Deist 2F - Wind Drake’s Room -
    
    Wind Drake: “Grrr... Rrgh...”

    Firion: “Come with us. Let’s fight together!”

    I am dying.”
    
    Ask - Wind Drake - Dragoons
    
    Wind Drake: “Immediately before the battle against the empire began, a
    Dragoon by the name of Gareth departed in search of the ultimate spell.”
    
    Ask - Wind Drake - Wind Drake
    
    Wind Drake: (growls and an egg appears) “Kind sirs, please hear my
    final wish.” “Take this egg to the cave north of this castle and place it in
    the spring there.” "This is the last Dragon Egg. Unless someone takes
    it to the Sacred Spring, it will with and die."
    
    Obtained Dragon Egg!
    
    Wind Drake: "Please... take that egg... to the spring...!"
    
    (The Wind Drake growls and falls over. The party travels to the lowest
    level of the cavern.)

    Child: *sob* "The Wind Drake died!"
    
    Mom: "The last Wind Drake...died. But we still have the egg that
    you have taken to the spring." "Once it has hatched, it will surely
    fight for the rebel army. I thank you in place of the mother drake..."
    "Oh, I wish this did not have to happen!"
    
    
    - Altair Rebel Base -
    
    Girl: "The princess is acting quite strange." "She only laughs at
    whatever I say to her!"
    
    Boy: "Psst! Hey, do you know what I saw? The princess was eating
    a rat!"
    
    Woman: "Oh, the poor Wind Drake!"
    
    Man: "Prince Gordon has grown into a strong and able leader thanks to
    your travels together."
    
    Man: "Princess has locked herself inside her bedroom and wouldn't see
    anyone. Anyone!"
    
    Wizard: "The nightmare of having the imperial army raiding us keeps me
    up all night! I can't sleep anymore!"

    her!"

    what has happened to her?"
    
    Wizard: "Welcome back. It is good to have you back safely."
    
    Gordon: "Hilda has been acting strangely since her return." "Will you speak
    to her and see what may be the cause?" "I... I don't know what I can do."
    
    
    - Altair King's Room -
    
    Soldiers at Door: "Since the king's passing, Gordon has been commanding

    - Hilda's Room -
    
    Hilda: "Firion, I'd like to speak with you...alone."
    Maria: "We will be waiting for you outside."
    (Maria, Gus and Leila exit the room. Hilda goes over to her bed. The screen
    goes red and a seductive theme begins playing.)
    
    Hilda: "Why are you standing there? Come to me..."
    Firion: "P-Princess? But I shouldn't..."
    Hilda: "Now, now. Don't keep a lady waiting."
    Firion: "I-I mustn't...but..." (He heads over to Hilda's bed.)
    Hilda: "Ha! Fool! Die, Firion!"
    
    (The monster that had been impersonating Hilda reveals its true form,
    a snakelike creature.)
    
    Firion: "Blasted monster! Where's the real Princess Hilda!?"
    Leila: "Not so fast!"
    
    (She and the others reenter the room. Battle with Lamia Queen.)
    
    Firion: "Thank you so much, Leila."
    Leila: "Hey, stay sharp. Women can do scary things sometimes!"
    Gus: "Where real princess?"
    Soldier: "Excuse my intrusion, sirs! But there will be a tournament
    held in Palamecia and its trophy is said to be Princess Hilda!"
    Gordon: "I am going with you. We must save Hilda!"
    Leila: "Gordon, I know how you feel. We'll take care of this place, so
    go and do your princey thing."
    
    Gordon joined the party!

    - Altair Strategy Room -
    
    Soldiers at Door: "I hear the emperor will be at the arena for the
    tournament. This may be our chance!"
    
    Wandering Soldier: "I knew something was wrong with the princess, but...
    We were fooled to believe a monster acting as her!"
    
    Wizard: "So you're headed for the enemy stronghold... Be careful." "I
    threw all sorts comments at you [sic], but that's because I care for
    you kids!"
    
    
    - Altair King's Room -

    Boy: "Oh Princess! I hope she has not been harmed in this horrible
    event!"
    
    Woman: "Even the Dragoons were no match to the imperial army..."
    
    Man: "Where is Palamecia, you ask? It's a long way south from Kas'ion."
    "Be careful when crossing the desert of Palamecia. I hear the monsters
    dwelling there are feared for their deadliness."
    
    Man: "Mindu hasn't returned from Mysidia yet."
    
    Wizard: "There is apparently a prison in the understructure of the
    arena. The princess may be kept there."
    
    Boy: "Our princess, a trophy to be given away? That's awful!"
    
    Wandering Soldier: "Prince Gordon, we pray for your safe return."
    
    Soldier: "Please rescue the princess!"
    
    Leila: "Don't worry about this place. We'll manage in your absence
    somehow."

    Pirate by Item Shop: "Going to the arena? Well, you'd better be careful."

    Emperor: "Excellent! Now you shall have your reward!"
    
    Now's your chance to get the emperor!

    (He disappears and soldiers surround the party.)
    
    Dark Knight: "Fools... Take them down to their cells."
    
    (The party is trapped in Coliseum B2.)

    Hilda: "G-Gordon... you came for me...?"
    Firion: "Gordon! We'll get the guards' attention, so take the princess
    and go!"
    Gordon: (nods) "All right. Be careful!"
    
    (He and Hilda leave. The party makes its way, sans Gordon, back

    enemies are in disarray, so now is our chance!"
    
    Soldier: "Let's recapture our Castle Fynn!"
    
    Gordon: "Go and infiltrate Castle Fynn to destroy its commander." "It
    is best if you go by yourselves, judging from your past success."

    everyone came together as a team." "My most heartfelt thanks to
    you all." "But one thing disturbs me. Mindu left for Mysidia and we

    but I have you with me."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Mysidia
    
    Hilda: "Mysidia is a land of mages. Without their help, we stand

    "One Mask is white, and the other is black."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Mask
    
    Hilda: "Go down to the castle's base level to find the White Mask.

    Hilda: "I am sorry, but I do not know where the door is."

    most powerful spell known to this world."
    
    Ask - Gordon - Ekmet Teloez
    
    Gordon: "Hilda knows everything about this castle, but if she
    doesn't... Hmm..." "Yes, but of course!" "Pavel should know any
    secrets of this castle. He boasts that he is the world's sneakiest
    thief!"
    
    Ask - Gordon - Ultima Scroll
    
    Gordon: "It would certainly be a potent weapon against the emperor!"
    
    Ask - Hilda - Ultima Scroll

    and a tide of infernal creatures swarmed this land." "Nothing could stop

    Wandering Soldier at Left: "There's a rumor that a secret on the tower of
    Mysidia is kept underneath this castle."
    
    Wandering Soldier at Right: "The town of Mysidia is said to have many

    Man: "Hey, have you seen Pavel yet? He was ecstatic to be back home!"
    "Maybe he had some treasure hidden there."
    
    Soldier: "We have regained Fynn, but the war is far from ended. It will be
    impossible to defeat the emperor by ourselves." "Are there any words
    from Mindu yet? He hasn't returned from Mysidia."
    
    Wizard: "Never thought I'd be able to come back to my dear old home.

    What's inside?" "The White Mask? Well, I'm not interested in that piece
    of royal trash. I'll tell you how to get there." "The hidden door is on the

    The Black Mask was placed over the doppelganger's face. It vanished
    with the Black Mask.
    
    
    - Mysidian Cave B5 -
    
    Obtained Crystal Rod from the treasure chest.
    
    (The party teleports out of the cave and travels to the Mysidian Tower.
    Just before they reach it, a whirlpool appears and sucks in the ship.)
    
    
    - Leviathan - Bowels -
    
    Firion: "Where are we?" "Oh no, we've lost Leila!"
    
    
    - Leviathan - Stomach -
    
    Man: "You're inside the Leviathan, pal."
    
    Man: "We were all swallowed by that monster of a snake!"
    
    Man in Armor: "Halt! Show me proof of your identities!"
    
    Ask - Man in Armor - Ultima Scroll
    
    Man in Armor: "But why do you know that?"
    
    Ask - Man in Armor - Mysidia
    
    Man in Armor: "Yes, I have been to Mysidia."
    
    Ask - Man in Armor - Dragoons
    
    Man in Armor: "The Dragoons and the Wind Drakes were annihilated?"
    "What rubbish! I am Dragoon myself!"
    
    Ask - Newly IDed Dragoon - Wind Drake
    
    Dragoon: "Wind Drake? Why ask?" "Who are you?"
    
    Item - Dragoon - Crystal Rod
    
    Dragoon: "I see, so you came to obtain the Ultima Scroll as well."
    "Let's go together, first out of this monster of a creature." "The
    ship is ahead, but a monster is blocking our way."
    
    Gareth the Dragoon joined the party!
    
    Man: "It swallowed me too!"
    
    Girl: "It looks as if we can leave the Leviathan when it opens its
    mouth. But there is a monster blocking our exit."
    
    Pirate: "Can we ever leave this place? I'm not going to bury my
    bones here!"
    
    Wizard: "The Leviathan is the guardian of the Mysidian Tower. It
    will swallow anything if it is carrying a Crystal Rod." "I have a
    Crystal Rod, too. See?"
    
    Woman: "Thanks to that grandpa's stupid Crystal Rod, we've all
    been trapped here!"
    
    Soldier: "No one can ever leave this place. I'm saying this because I've
    been trapped inside for the past ten years."
    
    
    Leviathan - Mouth
    
    Barrel Worm stands before the ship!
    
    (Battle with Barrel Worm. Following the battle, the party can immediately
    enter the Mysidian Tower, or they can return to Deist and Castle Fynn
    for a bit of optional dialogue...)
    
    
    - Castle Deist -
    
    Child: "Are you a Dragoon?"
    Gareth: "Yes, I was a friend of your father's." "I am going to defeat the
    emperor now. When I come back, will you let me be your father?"
    Child: "Well, sure. But I hope you can beat that emperor! I'll be praying
    for it!"
    
    Mother: "Gareth!"
    Gareth: "Elena! What happened to the others? What about Phillip?"
    Elena: "They didn't make it..."
    Gareth: "No... Courage, Elena." "I'll be back, I promise. Watch over your
    son and be strong."
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 4F -
    
    Hilda: "Oh, my. You were swallowed by the Leviathan?" "Speaking of
    vanishing, I wonder where Mindu is..."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Dragoons
    
    Hilda: "Are you... a dragoon?"
    Gareth: "Princess Hilda, it is my honor to be in your presence. I am
    Gareth Highwind, a dragoon." "When Deist was seized by the empire,
    I left to retrieve the Ultima Scroll in Mysidia." "It was there I found Firion's
    party."
    
    Gordon: "A Dragoon joined you? Magnificent!  The emperor will meet his
    fate soon!"
    
    Leila: "When that storm came and the ship broke off... I thought I lost you
    all for good. Dear lord of the seas!"
    
    (The party resumes its business, heading to the Mysidian Tower. Examine
    it on the World Map with "X" and the Crystal Rod is used to open. The party
    proceeds up three floors and then encounters a mage blocking the path...)
    
    
    - Mysidian Tower 3F -
    
    Mage: "You have done well. But you must defeat me to proceed!"
    
    The mage began to grow!
    
    (Battle with Fire Gigas. The scenario is repeated on 5F and 7F, first
    with an Ice Gigas and then with a Thunder Gigas. The party continues
    to the tenth floor.)
    
    
    - Mysidian Tower 10F -
    
    Mindu: "You've come at last!" "The magic seal on this door is strong. I
    will give it all I have." "Stand back!"
    
    (Mindu uses a powerful spell to break the seal, draining his life force in
    the process.)
    
    Maria: "Mindu!"
    Mindu: "I...I have fulfilled my duty. The door... has opened." "Now...go...!"
    Firion: Mindu!
    
    (Mindu disappears and the party nods, then continues into the next room.
    There they find a room with four silver crystals and a gold crystal in the
    middle of all of them. The silver crystals each grant a +10 stat boost to
    a random member of the party.)
    
    The crystal responded.
    "I shall give thee power."
    Strength increased!
    
    The crystal responded.
    "I shall strengthen your spirit."
    Spirit increased!
    
    The crystal responded.
    "I shall give thee intelligence."
    Intelligence increased!
    
    The crystal responded.
    "I shall give thee speed."
    Agility increased.
    
    (The party proceeds to the golden crystal.)
    
    The crystal responded.
    "I shall give thee the forbidden spell."
    Obtained Ultima Scroll!
    
    (A warp point appears and the party teleports out. As they make their
    way back to Fynn, they find that stronger monsters have populated
    the World Map and that several villages have been destroyed utterly.
    There is a Cyclone perched just above and to the right of Fynn on the
    World Map. Before returning to Fynn, the party can travel back to
    Mysidia for some optional dialogue...)
    
    
    - Mysidia -
    
    Mage at Entrance: "You've bravely unsealed the spell. Now go back to
    Fynn. Your princess awaits you."
    
    Wandering Mage near Armor Shop: "I see, Mindu has... fulfilled his
    destiny. We can only pray for his spirit to rest in tranquility."
    
    Mage near Inn: "The empire's Cyclone has attacked the northern
    territory. You must return to Fynn at once!"
    
    Mage by Water: "Well, now! You have gained some strength and skills,
    haven't you?"
    
    Mage at Lower Right Corner (Left): "The emperor's power surpassed our
    imagination."
    
    Mage at Lower Right Corner (Right): "Go back to the castle. This is the
    time to call forth the Wind Drake you have saved from death."
    
    Mage at Lower Left Corner (Left): "You have Mysidia's power with you.
    You can do it."
    
    Mage at Lower Left Corner (Right): "The Jade Passage comes with the
    demons."
    
    
    - Fynn -
    
    Boy: "Everybody's dead!"
    
    Soldier: "The Cyclone stormed this town, destroying everything in its
    path."
    
    
    - Fynn - Pavel's House -
    
    Pavel: "Look, I gotta be honest. Your next target is a Cyclone. I don't
    know how you can get that one."
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 1F -
    
    Soldier at Left of Entrance: "The emperor's Cyclone devastated towns
    like Altair and Poft."
    
    Soldier at Right of Entrance: "Fynn won't be able to hold up against
    another Cyclone raid!"
    
    Wandering Soldier at Right: "Is there not anything we can do to defeat
    the emperor's magic power?"
    
    Wandering Soldier at Left: "The emperor created that Cyclone with
    his magic."
    
    Soldier at Bottom Left Corner: "The mirror is on the third floor."
    
    Soldier at Left of Stairway: "No, it's impossible to go inside the Cyclone!
    It will shred you in pieces!"
    
    Soldier at Right of Stairway: "The emperor is inside that Cyclone."
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 4F -
    
    Hilda: "The emperor has created a Cyclone and has already destroyed
    Altair, Gatrea, Paloom and Poft... It is now coming to Fynn!"
    
    Ask - Hilda - Wind Drake
    
    Hilda: "Long ago, people used to reflect the light of Pendant on the
    castle's mirror to call a Dragoon and his Wind Drake."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Cyclone
    
    Hilda: "The emperor himself must be controlling the Cyclone."
    
    Gordon: "We made you retrieve the Ultima Scroll, but I am afraid the
    Cyclone will swallow us all before we can use it.
    
    Ask - Gordon - Cyclone
    
    Gordon: "It will be impossible to permeate the wall of wind from the
    ground."
    
    
    - Fynn - Pavel's House -
    
    Ask - Pavel - Cyclone
    
    "Oh, please. Now you're going inside that thing? I tell you..." "Well,
    maybe I can help you. I'll give you my treasure. Search the wall
    next to the bed."
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 3F (Hall of the Mirror) -
    
    (The party examines the mirror.)
    
    The mirror is polished to perfection.
    
    Item - Mirror - Pendant
    
    The mirror is absorbing the light emanating from the Pendant.
    
    A reflection of a Wind Drake can be seen on the mirror. It is the
    Wind Drake hatched from the Dragon's Egg! The Wind Drake is
    flying towards Fynn.
    
    (A cutscene shows the Wind Drake's flight to Fynn and the Wind
    Drake arrives in the room.)
    
    The Dragoon and the Wind Drake were brought together at last!
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 4F -
    
    Hilda: "Oh, a Wind Drake! It still seems quite young, but wonderful!"
    
    Ask - Hilda - Wind Drake
    
    Hilda: "Perhaps the Wind Drake can take you inside the Cyclone."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Cyclone
    
    Hilda: "I hope the drake's wings are strong enough to withhold the
    enormous force of the Cyclone!"
    
    Gordon: "The wind velocity in the center of the Cyclone is much
    weaker, I hear."
    
    
    (The party approaches the Cyclone from the World Map. Hit "X"
    and the Wind Drake flies into the Cyclone. The party proceeds
    to the top.)
    
    
    - Cyclone 7F -
    
    Emperor: "I am not wasting my time on the likes of you." "Men,
    take them out."
    
    (Battle with Royal Guard X 2)
    
    Emperor: "Hmm, not bad. Then how about this?"
    
    (Battle with Royal Guard X 4)
    
    Emperor: "You surprise me. I suppose I have to silence you
    myself."
    
    (Battle with Emperor, Royal Guard X 2 and Wood Golem)
    
    Emperor: "I... will... not... die!"'
    
    Firion: "Let's go back to Fynn!"
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 4F -
    
    Hilda: "Thanks to your bravery, peace has finally returned." "Let
    us celebrate."
    
    (The party joins a lovely dance. It continues for a while and then a
    rebel soldier enters the room.)
    
    Soldier: "Y-Your Highness! Leon, the Dark Knight, has claimed...
    himself as...the emperor!" (falls and disappears)
    Hilda: "Oh, no... When is the suffering going to end? But what can
    we do now? And who is Leon?"
    
    (Scene change. Firion is shown entering the great hall and you can
    talk with Hilda, Gordon and Leila.)
    
    Hilda: "The Dark Knight is Leon... And he was your friend!"
    Maria: "I'll try to persuade him somehow. He must be controlled by
    the emperor's magic!"
    Hilda: "The Dark Knight must be in Palamecia as the next emperor."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Palamecia
    
    Hilda: "Castle Palamecia is nestled among the mountains. You
    cannot reach it on foot."
    
    Gordon: "Leon is Maria's brother." "You're not going to fight him, are
    you?"
    Firion: "That is why we must go ourselves."
    Gordon: "I expected that answer from you. Please be careful."
    
    Ask - Gordon - Palamecia
    
    Gordon: "It is an impregnable fortress. Pavel was boasting of his past
    entry into it, but no one knows for sure."
    
    Leila: "I heard the Dark Knight proclaimed himself the next emperor."
    
    Ask - Leila - Palamecia
    
    Leila: "Yeah, I've heard of Pavel's bluffin' about how he snuck in there.
    You've heard it, too?"
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 1F -
    
    Soldier at Left of Stairway: "The imperial army is in disarray. Maybe this
    is our change [sic] to defeat the Dark Knight."
    
    Soldier at Right of Stairway: "You are the only ones who can enter Castle
    Palamecia. Please defeat the Dark Knight and bring back peace to us all!"
    
    Wandering Soldier at Left: "We must overthrow the Dark Knight and
    Palamecian rule."
    
    Wandering Soldier at Right: "If we defeat the Dark Knight, all the monsters
    ravaging this world will vanish, too."
    
    Soldier at Bottom Left Corner: "Pavel was bragging about sneaking in to
    Palamecia!"
    
    Soldier at Left of Entrance: "How can one enter Palamecia?"
    
    Soldier at Right of Entrance: "Castle Palamecia is the imperial army's
    stronghold, but all the mountains around it block our way."
    
    
    - Fynn -
    
    Boy: "Hey, when's it gonna be all safe and peaceful again?"
    
    Soldier: "Is it true the Dark Knight claimed himself as the emperor?"
    
    
    - Fynn - Pavel's House -
    
    Pavel: "What? We finally defeated the emperor, and now we got this
    Dark Knight to get to?"
    
    Cid: "The Cyclone got me in Paloom... My old bones aren't acting as I
    want them to." (He lies down on the bed.)
    Gus: "Are you all right, Cid?"
    Cid: "I'm in this pathetic state now, but my Airship's as scratchless as
    she ever was." "Now, listen, I'll let you use her until I get better. Got that?"
    "Take good care of her... Urgh..."
    Firion: "Cid! No, don't-!"
    
    (Cid disappears.)
    
    Pavel: "That was his will, don't you see? Ever since he realized he was
    dying, he's been meaning to give his Airship to you guys." "He really
    loved his Airship, it meant everything to him. You've gotta understand
    how he felt when he breathed his last words!"
    
    Ask - Pavel - Palamecia
    
    Pavel: "Glad you asked. You know how I did it? I glided onto the castle
    roof with a kite!" "Hey, maybe you guys can take the Airship to get
    there too!"
    
    
    (The party travels to Palamecia and uses the Airship, dropping down to
    the seventh floor of the castle. A hole in the ground drops them down to
    the first floor, but they make their way back up, eventually reaching the
    eighth floor.)
    
    
    - Castle Palamecia 8F -
    
    Leon: "I knew you'd come, Firion." "You think you can defeat me?"
    Maria: "No, please stop this! Why do you have to cross your sword
    against your friend?"
    Leon: "Let me ask you one thing: What conquers the world?" "The
    answer is power. I am the emperor now, and I will not let go of it!" "Now,
    move out of my way!"
    
    (A figure appears at the throne where Leon was previously.)
    
    Emperor: "Leon, I'm surprised to see you on my throne." "I have returned
    from hell with the ultimate power to conquer the world." "You? The
    emperor? Ha! You do not know that you only deserve to work in the
    shadows of the real emperor!"
    Leon: "What can a ghost do now? The empire is mine!"
    
    (Blue flames surround the party.)
    
    Emperor: "You, pathetic fool. I'm not interested in the empire anymore."
    "I shall kill all living souls and destroy this world!" "You will be joined
    by the others soon."
    
    (The blue flames move in closer.)
    
    Gareth: "We must flee this place, now. Take my Wind Drake!"
    Firion: "Gareth! What are you doing?"
    Gareth: "Come, I will take you to where you belong."
    Emperor: "You.. You worthless fool!"
    Gareth: "Rrraaaagh!"
    Maria: "Gareth!"
    
    (The Wind Drake appears and ferries the party away A bright light
    appears and seems to destroy Castle Palamecia, but then it rises
    again. The party returns automatically to the great hall, the fourth
    floor of Castle Fynn.)
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 4F -
    
    Hilda: "Firion, what happened?" "You! The Dark Knight!" "Tell me,
    what happened?"
    Firion: "The emperor... He has returned."
    Maria: "And the dragoon... He sacrificed himself to save us." "Josef,
    Mindu, Cid, and now Gareth... They're all dead. I can't take this
    anymore!"
    Leon: "But if we stop here, the emperor will bring more deaths."
    Firion: "Leon... let's fight together." "Princess Hilda, please allow him
    to join us."
    Hilda: "I will leave the decision up to you."
    Maria: "Leon, we'll go together!"
    Leon: "Okay, Maria."
    
    Hilda: "Long ago, demonic creatures flooded the world in what is now
    known as the Tide of Doom." "It is said they entered through a place
    called the Jade Passage."
    
    Ask - Hilda - Jade Passage
    
    Hilda: "There is an area of Mysidia known by that name."
    
    Gordon: "The resurrected emperor brought Pandaemonium from the
    underworld! The world is coming to an end!"
    
    Ask - Gordon - Jade Passage
    
    Gordon: "Kas'ion folklore told of a small lake in Mysidia. It was said to
    be the portal to hell."
    
    Leila: "That emperor sold his soul to the demons, that's just what he did."
    
    Ask - Leila - Jade Passage
    
    Leila: "You know that narrow channel on the east of Mysidia? That's where
    the Jade Sea is."
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 1F -
    
    Secret Soldier: "We're all going to die! Waaaa!"
    
    Soldier at Left of Stairway: "The emperor's spirit has returned from
    hell."
    
    Soldier at Right of Stairway: "This is horrible!"
    
    Wandering Soldier at Left: "We must return the emperor's spirit back to
    hell."
    
    Wandering Soldier at Right: "Pandaemonium is a castle of mirage, so you
    cannot enter it directly. I hear there is a spring leading the world of demons,
    but..."
    
    Soldier at Bottom Left Corner: "How horrible. The emperor came back to
    this world in his spirit form!"
    
    Soldier at Left of Entrance: "Pandaemonium, the floating palace of hell
    appeared!"
    
    Soldier at Right of Entrance: "Castle Palamecia collapsed, but the emperor
    returned-- this time, bringing Pandaemonium with him." "He must be
    there."
    
    
    - Fynn -
    
    Boy: "What's gonna happen to the world?"
    
    Soldier: "The emperor has come back from his death..."
    
    
    - Fynn - Pavel's House -
    
    Pavel: "Just don't waste your life, Firion promise me that, all right?"
    
    
    (The party travels to Castle Deist for some optional dialogue and a
    bonus item.)
    
    
    - Castle Deist 2F -
    
    Child: "We gotta get rid of that emperor's apparition! Hey, what
    happened to the Dragoon you went with?" (Elena sobs.)
    
    Mother: "Gareth is dead? But he promised me he'd return..."
    "Still, he was a Dragoon. He must have been proud to die for his
    comrades."
    
    Ask - Mother - Dragoons
    
    Mother: "We will be leaving Deist. This is our home, but... it's too
    full of painful memories." "Oh, I meant to give you this. Only the
    greatest Dragoons could wield it. It's yours now."
    
    Obtained Excalibur!
    
    (She and her son exit. The party can also return to the house in
    Mysidia, where the book there has info on the keywords Palamecia
    and Jade Passage.)
    
    Ask - Palamecia
    
    "The Palamecian king then boasted: If you succeed to enter this
    castle, you may have my daughter!" "Many suitors came but all
    failed. Finally, a lad on a bag filled with hot--air landed on its roof
    and floated away with the princess."
    
    Ask - Jade Passage
    
    "A passage to Pandaemonium, the palace of demons."
    
    
    (The party travels to the Jade Passage, which they pass through
    without any dialogue. There, they find a teleporter that transports
    them into the final dungeon, Pandaemonium.)
    
    
    - Pandaemonium 1F -
    
    You have entered Pandaemonium!
    
    
    - Pandaemonium 10F -
    
    (The party speaks with the Emperor, who is waiting at the center
    at the very top.)
    
    Emperor: "So good to see you again. But this time, you are the
    ones who will die."
    
    (Battle with Emperor.)
    
    Emperor: "B-But why... Why cannot [sic] I defeat...you...?" "Who...
    are..." "y--you...?" "Rrrraaaaagh!"
    
    Firion: (saluting) "Let's get out of here!"
    
    (The others nod. Note - the above line is not specifically credited
    to any of the characters, but since it's Firion who salutes and the
    others who nod, it would seem that it's him who says it. The screen
    fades to black, then fades back in at Castle Fynn 4F. The party
    enters the room. Firion, Maria and Gus stand together, while Leon
    goes and stands off to the side, nearby Pavel, Mollly and Leilia,
    who have gathered there.)
    
    
    - Castle Fynn 4F -
    
    Hilda: "I am glad you returned."
    Gordon: "You have done it. You are our heroes!)
    
    (He and Hilda go and stand by their thrones and Pavel approaches
    the party.)
    
    Pavel: "You made it back! Amazing! I don't know whether you're brave or
    just lucky. Well, take care." (He leaves.)
    
    Leila: "Hey, I always knew you could pull that off. Drop by anytime you
    see my ship, I'll be lookin' forward to seein' you again!" (She leaves.)
    
    Molly: "You're our heroes! My father must be so proud of you, too." "I've
    decided to work here in the castle, serving the princess. It is the least
    I can do." (Josef's spirit appears and then flickers away.) "Josef!"
    
    (Molly walks away and stands between Hilda and Gordon.)
    
    Hilda: "We will dedicate our lives to restoring what has been destroyed."
    "We hope to see you again... please take care!"
    
    (She, Gordon and Molly leave.)
    
    Gus: "Everything...ended."
    Firion: "That's right!"
    Maria: "We can all live together again, all four of us!"
    Firion: (nods) "..."
    
    (They all turn to face Leon.)
    
    Maria: "Right, Leon?"
    
    (Leon walks over to the group and they turn around to face each other.)
    
    Leon: "We've been through too much. We can't return to the past."
    (He turns away.)
    
    Maria: "Wait, Leon! Why? Firion, please don't let him go!"
    Firion: "What Leon said is true, Maria." "I can't stop him from going."
    
    (Leon begins to walk away.)
    
    Firion: "We shall meet again, Leon!"
    
    (Leon leaves. The others begin to leave. As they do, they turn around
    again and the ghosts of those who sacrificed their lives to aid them
    appear: Scott, Josef, Mindu and Gareth. They flicker and then
    disappear.)
    
    Firion: "Now, let's go. This is going to be the real beginning!"
    
    (Gus nods. They leave and the screen fades to black. The ending
    sequence then plays. Scenes of the restored peace are played and
    text appears in italics...)
    
    The long war ended at last. The emperor and Pandaemonium... and the
    monsters plaguing every corner of the world... They all vanished. Peace
    has finally returned. The people will slowly heal the scars of war. The
    memory of those dismal days will fade with time. But one memory will
    remain clear and true: It was the ordinary youths with extraordinary minds
    who saved the world.
