    =======================================================================
     
    " Alent Project was born in 1998 from the association of 
    passionate people who wanted to make one of the greatest games ever, 
    Grandia, understandable by non-Japanese speakers. The Alent 
    Project site (http://grandia.dreamcast-hq.net) has from then
    united all 3 of the available fan-translations of Grandia with the 
    hope an official translation would come... which finally happened. 
    
    As of october 1999, an english version of Grandia has finally
    been released. Even if we weren'table to translate all the game, 
    we've made it to over 50% of the storyline conversations.
    
    We staff members think it's been great to work all together to
    put up this translation. Now, most players can enjoy the full
    official translation, and the time has come to say goodbye. Alent
    Project is now over, but we may see you again someday, if another
    great RPG such as Grandia remains untranslated. This is no
    farewell, this is only goodbye... "

    INSIDE AN AIRSHIP OF THE GARLYSLE ARMY
    
         Baal
         Mmph...I must have dozed off...and I had that dream again...hurrying
         me. Myuren, what is our current position ?
    
         Myuren
         We have traveled at least halfway to our destination. You seem tired,
         Shogun Baal.
    
         Baal
         How many times must I tell you, Myuren ? When the troops aren't around
         you may call me "father".
    
         Myuren
         Is that what you wish ? But.. Leen is with us.
    
         Baal
         Ha, ha, ha... That sounds like something you would say. Leen is,
         needless to say, a highly important component in the implementation of
         our secret plan. You need not be afraid of her.
    
         Leen
         .................
    
         Baal
         The total exploration of the Saruto Ruins is already nearly complete.
         However, I trust that your personal investigation will yield the
         greatest finds.
    
         Myuren and Leen
         ..................
    
         Myuren
         Since this is being handled by the elite western army, you should
         expect good results.
    
         P.A. System
         It is now 13:40 military time. We are currently passing through Parm
         airspace. ETA at our final destination is 15:30.
    
         Myuren
         Leen, open the window for our liege.
    
         Leen
         Yes, Commander Myuren.
    
         **** ON THE STREETS OF PARM
    
         Man
         HEY YOU !!! YOU LITTLE PUNK !!! So it's you again Justin ! I can't
         believe you're still bent on trying to steal from my storeroom !
    
         Justin
         No, I'm not ! Listen to me !
    
         Man
         I can see what you're doing ! You're destroying the place !
    
         Justin
         No, I'm searching for treasure ! I just have to find some ! I'm an
         adventurer !
    
         Man
         What the hell are you talking about ?! And just how do you expect to
         find treasure in all this junk ? (BONK !!!) Now for the last time,
         STAY OUTTA' HERE !!
    
         Sue
         Justiiiiiiin ! Hey, hey Justin. Are you okay ? That sounded kinda'
         painful
    
         Justin
         Oh, hey there Sue.... So you saw all of that, huh ? Well, don't worry
         about me. It'll take more than that to faze me, right ?
    
         Sue
         Yeah.... Did you find anything in the storeroom ?
    
         Justin
         Nope... he's right about one thing. There really is nothing but junk
         in there. How about you ?
    
         Sue
         Of course, I found something ! Ta-da ! Look at this ! The Armor of
         Legend. And I found it all by myself !
    
         Pooy
         Pu ! Pu ! Pu !
    
         Sue
         Oh yeah, Pooy helped too. Well, here you go, Justin ! The Armor of
         Legend.
    
         *** Received the dirty apron.
    
         Justin
         Alright, Sue ! Now we have one of the items. So all we need to do is
         find the Shield of Light, Helm of Courage, and the Sacred Soul Sword.
    
         Sue
         But if you don't find them before sundown, you lose ! That would be
         terrible ! I don't want to be Gantz's bride you know ! I can't believe
         you actually agreed to something like that Justin ! This whole thing
         is your responsibility !
    
         Justin
         I know, I know. Alright, Gantz ! I'll show you !
    
         Sue
         We're going too, Pooy !
    
         Pooy
         Pu ! Pu !
    
         Justin
         : We've found it, Gantz ! The first treasure!
    
         *** NEAR THE BRIDGE
    
         *** Talk to the boy, Gantz, at the center of the bridge.
    
         Gantz
         Hey there, Justin ! You took long enough ! Pretty shocking for a
         "world-class adventurer" ! Speaking of adventurers, did you know
         that"The World's End" has nearly been totally explored ? That means
         adventurers will soon be obsolete ! It's inevitable !
    
         Justin
         What's "The World's End" ?
    
         Gantz
         What ?! You call yourself a world-class adventurer and you don't even
         know what "The World's End" is ? Well, sounds like you don't have much
         of a chance of finding all 4 treasures before sunset. And when you
         lose, I'll be Sue's master, and she'll be my bride !
    
         Justin
         Hey, what're you talking about, Gantz ? Surely there's plenty of time
         to search after sunset. Oh yeah, take a look at this !
    
         **** Justin shows the dirty apron to Gantz.
    
         Gantz ...heh ? The Armor of Legend, huh ?
    
         Justin
         He, he... Now how's that for starters ?!
    
         *** Talk to Gantz again.
    
         Gantz
         Hmmph, all you've got is the armor, big deal ! Now does Justin, the
         3rd-rate adventurer, need a hint ??
    
         *** 3 Choices
         1) I'll find them without your help !
         2) Tell me about the Helm of Courage.
         3) Ok, so what's your hint for the Shield of Light?
    
         **** Choose 1
    
         Gantz
         ....What !? So think you can find em' without my help, eh ? Even if
         you could find those two, there is no way you'll find the Sacred Soul
         Sword !
    
         *** Choose 2
    
         Gantz
         The Helm of Courage, huh ? You'll find it in a place where you can
         hear the sound of rushing waters.
    
         Justin
         The sound of rushing waters... ?
    
         **** THE HELM OF COURAGE
    
         *** Walk alongside the dike that divides the city in half. You'll find a
         staircase going down to the river. If you're having a hard time
         finding it, just rotate the map. You can't miss it. Now walk towards
         the west and you'll see a sparkling item. Click on it.
    
         Sue
         Hey, Justin. Do you think this pot could be the Helm of Courage ?
    
         Justin
         Oh yeah, that's right Sue ! This is it ! He, he, he... just you wait,
         Gantz !
    
         *** Received the used old pot.
    
         *** Go back to Gantz.
    
         Gantz
         Hey, Justin ! You've noticed the futility of your search, and have
         come back to grovel before me, right ?
    
         *** Justin shows Gantz the worn-out pot.
    
         Gantz
         Ehh !? Dang, the Helm of Courage ! Well, you've still got two more
         treasures left. For now, try finding the Shield of Light. You'll find
         it in a place you can hear seagulls calling.
    
         Sue
         Seagulls, huh ?
    
         *** THE SHIELD OF LIGHT
    
         *** Head to the harbor. Once there, walk forward then left. You should see
         a sparkling item near one of the walls.
    
         Sue
         Maybe... this saucepan lid could be the Shield of Light !
    
         Justin
         ....huh ? Hey, that does look like a shield ! Let's get it !
    
         Received the saucepan lid.
    
         *** Go back to Gantz.
    
         Gantz
         So what do you have this time ? Show me !
    
         Justin
         He, he... I've got the Shield of Light !
    
         ***  Justin shows Gantz the saucepan lid.
    
         Gantz
         .... Hmmph ! So you've found the shield, huh ? I guess that means
         you've got 3 of the 4 treasures, but this is where you fail, Justin !
         For the Sacred Soul Sword is next !
    
         Justin
         Haha ! I'll find the sword before you know it, Gantz ! And when I do,
         I win this challenge !
    
         Sue
         Still... I haven't seen anything that resembles a sword...
    
         *** THE SPIRITS SWORD
    
         *** Talk to Gantz again.
    
         Gantz
         Listen up, Justin ! The sword is inside my treasure chest within my
         house. But you can't open it, because it's locked tight, loser ! Ohh,
         I wonder where the key could be ! Ha, ha, ha !
    
         Justin
         The key to his treasure chest... Hmm... I wonder where it is ?
    
         Gantz
         Hey Justin ! Since you're such a big-shot adventurer opening that
         treasure chest should be a piece of cake for you. Of course if you
         can't, you're certainly not worthy of the title, "adventurer", are you
         ?
    
         *** Head to Gantz's house. Once inside, click on the treasure chest.
    
         Justin
         Well, this must be the treasure chest. *Mmmmph* ! Ugh, I can't get it
         open... If only we had the key...
    
         Sue
         Why don't we ask Gantz's mom ?
    
         *** Talk to Gantz's mom.
    
         Gantz's Mom
         Ah, there, finished ! Now where could Gantz and Tentz be off to ? Why,
         it's already time for dinner ! Oh, what is it, Justin ? Can't seem to
         find the key to Gantz's treasure chest, eh ? Ah yes, I remember Gantz
         giving Tentz the key around lunchtime. Why don't go find Tentz and ask
         him about it ?
    
         *** Go talk to the kid outside of the tavern.
    
         Tentz
         What am I gonna do ? Oh what am I gonna do !? Sniffle, sniffle,
         *whimper*, *whimper*, WAAAAAAH !!
    
         Justin
         Hey Tentz, what's wrong ? Why are you crying ?
    
         Tentz
         Sniffle, sniffle, *hic*... I'll tell but... You wouldn't tell my big
         brother about it, right ?
    
         *** 2 Choices
         1) Well, I can't be sure until you tell me.
         2) Well... I guess I will probably tell your brother.
    
         *** Choose 1
    
         Tentz
         WAAAH ! No, no, that's no good !! If you ended up telling him, he'd
         hit meeeeeeeeeee !! WAAH! WAAH ! Someone's gotta help me... Sniffle,
         sniffle.
    
         *** Choose 2
    
         Tentz
         Noooo ! Nooo ! You can't !!! If you told him that I lost the key it
         would be hoooooorible !!!
    
         Sue
         Hmm.. I see.. Seems like the key to the treasure chest is lost.
    
         Tentz
         How... How did you know !? I can't believe it !! Sue, you can read my
         mind !?
    
         Sue
         Hee, hee... Tentz, you poor little kid, that's cute. Now, now, stop
         crying we'll help you find the key, right Justin ?
    
         Justin
         *smiles* Well, I guess we have no choice, right ? Now Tentz, do you
         have any idea where you might have dropped the key ?
    
         Tentz
         Sniffle, sniffle... Well I was just by the riverbank near the
         tavern... Then I tripped and fell...
    
         Sue
         It must be near the river ! Let's check !
    
         Walk toward the river and crawl all around near the edge of the river,
         until you find the key.
    
         Justin
         Hey, what's this ? He, he, he ! I've found it !
    
         Tentz
         Yeah, that's it ! Thanks Justin and Sue !
    
         Justin
         Well you sure perked up !
    
         Tentz
         I owe you one, Justin. I won't forget this favor you've done for me.
         Well... At least I'll remember it until the day after tomorrow !
    
         Sue
         He, he ! Well, looks like you're back to your old self, Tentz ! And to
         think, you were crying your eyes out a while ago.
    
         Tentz
         Gantz told me to not let you have the key but... Oh go ahead and keep
         it, Justin ! It's my way of repaying you for helping me out. Just make
         sure you tell Gantz that you took the key away from me by force,
         otherwise he'll beat me up ! The Sacred Soul Sword is in the treasure
         chest inside our house. Let's go !
    
         *** Go back to Gantz's house and try opening up the chest.
    
         Justin
         Alright ! Let's open the chest !
    
         Sue
         Boy you sure look excited, Justin ! Pooy thinks so too !
    
         Pooy
         Pu ! Pu !
    
         Justin
         Okay... There it is ! The Sacred Soul Sword !
    
         *** Received the wooden sword.
    
         *** Go back to see Gantz
    
         Greg
         Why do you kids do such bad things !? Are you listening to me, Gantz ?
         !
    
         Justin
         What's going with Gantz over there ? I wonder what he did to make old
         Greg so mad ?
    
         Sue
         See ? And I told him not to block the bridge ! He's so stupid !
         ....And that's why we're just going to walk across, we had nothing to

         mentioned that he wants to see you at the museum tomorrow. Something

         your father's old memento, that Spirit Stone. Now mind you, your
         father wasn't the type to lie, but to think that was the real Spirit
         Stone ! Still, now that I think about it, that little stone was your
         father's most prized possession.

         How romantic~.

         And then, all of a sudden, a band of pirates appeared, and in the
         blink of the eye they boarded your father's ship.
    
         Justin
         Hey ! Now this story's starting to sound interesting ! Hey, hey... so
         what happened after that ?

         Lily
         Well, the pirate captain caught sight of your father's prized stone.
         Then he drew out his sword and said, "Hand over that stone !"
    
         Justin
         Really !? You go Dad !!! And then ? And then ?
    
         Lily
         Well, the pirate captain was very impressed with your dad's courage
         and decided not to take the stone.
    
         Justin
         Wow, I wonder what type of guys those pirates were ? They were
         probably burly sea men with long beards and big muscles.
    
         Lily
         A-ha-ha-ha ! Heavens no ! They were all girls who were about your age
         ! In fact, there was one called "Lily the Skull."

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

         Curator
         Ah, you're just in time, Justin, my boy ! Now why don't you have a
         look this ? (you look up) It's a new Koyokujin image ! We just
         finished restoring it today !
    
         Justin
         Wow, so this an image of a Koyokujin, huh ? I've never seen a type
         like this before.

         Mmm.. Yes, it was excavated by the Garlysle army from the Domu Ruins
         in the new world, Elencia.
    
         Justin
         Wow, Domu Ruins... Those are the largest ruins in Elencia ! Man, I
         wouldn't mind exploring those someday.
    
         Curator
         Is that so... Is that so... Well they say that one with a hopeful
         spirit can do great things, Justin. According to the Enjule legend,
         the Koyokujin created a dreamlike world, a true paradise, with the
         power of the Spirit Stone. There are a number of interesting ideas in
         the legend... They are things about a city that floated in the sky, a
         ship that could travel to the stars...

         Curator
         Ha, ha, ha ! Anyhow, when I try to contemplate the nature of this
         legend, these utopian ideas seem to have almost certainly been
         fabricated by a very influential ruler of Enjule. This king invented
         such things as spirits and Spirit Stones to try to legitimize his
         existence.
    
         Justin
         Man... Looking at it like that makes it seem so boring. Archaeology
         doesn't seem like much fun.
    
         Curator
         Ha, ha, ha. I'm sorry ! I too prefer talking about more exciting
         things. Is this scientific talk boring you, Justin, my boy ?
    
         Justin
         Yeah, and to think that all those fantastic myths and legends may be
         just ordinary things. That seems so depressing.
    
         Curator
         True. The fantastic ideas of these myths are their true beauty, not
         their assumed origins.... Ah, oh yes ! Before I forget, your father
         left me an artifact called the Spirit Stone.
    
         Justin
         You've analyzed it, right ? Is it authentic ?
    
         Curator
         : Ha, ha, ha. I'm not sure really. To begin with, I tried analyzing
         its components, but it's harder than diamond, so I wasn't able to
         study it as much as I wanted to.
    
         Justin
         Wow, even harder than diamond... ?
    
         Curator
         Yes, well... I've been trying to think of another way to determine its
         authenticity, but right now I'm going to return it to its rightful
         owner.

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

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

         I thought I heard a loud noise a while ago, did something happen ?
    
         CRASH !!
    
         Justin
         W-what should I do, Sue ? Should I just tell him what happened ?

         Justin
         Well, the truth is... I accidently broke the image.
    
         Curator
         Ha, ha, ha ! Nice joke, Justin ! Now if that image really were broken,
         it would probably wouldn't be too good for my weak heart. Well, now
         that the jokes are over, I have a present for you.
    
         Justin
         What is it ? !
    
         Curator
         A bit impatient, aren't we ? Here it is...
    
         *** You receive the curator's letter.
    
         Curator
         The Garlysle Army is currently re-investigating the Saruto ruins. With
         this letter, they'll let you look around the ruins while they work.
    
              Justin
         ...Really !? Thank you, Mr. Curator !
    
         Sue
         That's great, Justin ! You were just saying how much you wanted to see
         some ruins just a while ago !
    
         Pooy
         Puu, puu !
    
         Curator
         I'm glad I could help ! Now, all you need to do is show this letter to
         the soldiers guarding the ruins, and they should allow you to explore
         the area. Perhaps you can even find out whether that Spirit Stone is
         authentic or not.

         I wonder what that loud crashing sound was a while ago ?
    
         Justin
         Ack ! He... he, he. I wonder if it was a mouse or something ?

         Nana
         Um, Saki, your troops were late again. I don't think you're
         disciplining them properly.
    
         Saki
         What are you talking, Nana? I just had them do 3000 squats each!
    
         Mio
         Saki, you're always trying to think with your muscles instead of your
         brain. The proper way to discipline them is to make them meditate for
         100 days. Don't give them any food or water during this period so they
         can learn the proper technique.
    
         Nana
         Oh-ho! That's nothing, Mio! I prefer to give them 5000 lashing with my
         whip, pour salt all over them, then stick them in a cell for 100 days!
    
         Saki
         You'll end up killing them if you do that!
    
         Mio
         Cmdr. Myuren is going to be upset when hears about that.

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

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

         Stone was glowing?
    
         Justin
         That's it, Sue! There must be some connection between the Spirit Stone
         and the ancient civilization here. Hey.. That means this stone is

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

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

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

         This is my sworn duty. And I wouldn't hesitate to take the life of a

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

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

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

          found the item.

          Unfortunately, I wasn't able to meet your expectations, father. I am
          prepared to face any punishment for our failure.
    
          Baal
          .... Ha, ha, ha.... Punishment you say? If you couldn't do the task,

          Here it is! Here it is! This is my first time in here so I'm really
          excited!
    
          Sue
          It's okay! It's okay! Nobody's gonna get mad so just go ahead and
          enter.
    
          Barkeep
          Oh, hey there! You're the ones who helped with the keys a while ago
          right? Thanks! I want to give you something to express my gratitude.
    
          Justin
          Aha, ha, ha... uh oh. But, well, I didn't think that you were going to
          be the one to thank us, Rulia.
    
          Rulia
          Quit it, Justin! You brought me the keys remember?
    
          Justin
          Eh?! You're that old lady from this afternoon?!
    
          Sue
          You mean you didn't know, Justin? Women can use magic to change
          their appearance.
    
          Rulia
          Me, use magic? Ha, ha, ha! That's funny Sue. Anyway, it looks like
          Jin isn't here today. You might just want to talk to some of the
          guests. See that man in the corner over there? He's always listening
          to Jin's stories. Go over and ask him about old Jin.
    
          *** Talk to the man in the corner.
    
          Man
          Jin, huh? That self proclaimed, "great adventurer" that waddles down
          here from the abandoned mines on Mt. Reck, right?
    
          Justin
          "Self proclaimed", huh? That doesn't sound too good... Anyway, I
          think that's the right guy. Tell me more about him.
    
          Man
          Hmm... Well, he said that when he was young he was the greatest
          adventurer in Mecina, but since there are so few job opporitunites
          for adventurers now, all does is sit in this bar all day talking
          about the "good ole' days" to all the drunkards in here, and when
          he's not in the bar he stays secluded in the old abandoned Reck
          Mines.
    
          Sue
          Hmm... I didn't think anyone lived in the Reck Mines.
    
          *** Try to leave.
    
          Sue
          Uh oh, Pooy accidently gobbled up some peanuts. Now we've got to
          apologize to Rulia.
    
          Pooy
          Puu, pu, puu...
    
          *** Talk to Rulia.
    
          Rulia
          So Pooy gobbled down some peanuts, did he?
    
          Justin
          I think he regrets it, so perhaps you could overlook this tiny
          thing?
    
          Rulia
          No... I can't overlook this, but perhaps if you did me a little
          favor... You see, when that Jin fellow came in here last time, he
          accidently left his wallet. I'd like someone to deliver it back to
          him...
    
          Justin
          No problem! We're heading up there anyway. We'll need take a train.
          Hmm... I know there's one that heads up to Mt. Reck from the train
          station in Parm. Leave it all to me!Rulia
          Oh yeah, Jin left his wallet in the tavern. Are you planning on
          going to Reck Mines?
    
          Pooy
          Puu! Puuu! Pu, pu, pu, puu!
    
          Sue
          Got it Pooey! Hey, Justin. Pooey's getting really hungry. Let's go
          home.
    
          *** Return to the Seagull Cafe.
    
          Lily
          Hey, Justin! BONK!
    
          Justin
          Oww! W-What was that for, Mom! I didn't track in any mud today!
    
          Lily
          And just what time do you think it is? You got me worried being out
          this late! Oh well, since you made it back safely, I guess it's
          okay. Get ready for dinner then.
    
          Justin and Sue
          Yeah!!
    
          AT DINNER
    
          Sue
          I hope that we get a pass after we visit Jin tomorrow, right Justin?
    
          Justin
          He must be a great adventurer. I can't wait to meet him.
    
          *** Select Sue.
    
          Sue
          You know, this Jin person must be pretty scatterbrained, since he
          forgot he about his wallet.
    
          Justin
          ... Yeah, even I wouldn't forget that.
    
          Sue
          How can you remember that and always forget to feed Pooy? Isn't that
          right, Pooy?
    
          Pooy
          Puu! Puu!
    
          *** Select Lily.
    
          Lily
          So you're going to Reck Mines to see Jin, huh? Well, I can tell you
          not to go because it's dangerous but that probably won't stop
          you--you being an adventurer and all. But since you won't be going
          alone, promise me that you'll protect Sue, okay? This is your
          responsibility!
    
          Justin
          Of course! Don't forget that I'm an adventurer!
    
          *** Select Justin.
    
          Sue
          We're going to the Reck Mines tommorow so that we can meet Jin.
          Don't forget, Justin!
    
          THE NEXT DAY
    
          Sue
          Good morning, Justin! Let's get going!
    
          *** Go to the train station in Parm and talk to the man inside.
    
          Man
          Oh hello, Justin! Do you want me to let you have another look inside
          the train?
    
          Justin
          No, today I want to go to the Reck Mines, so I can return this
          wallet to some guy named Jin.
    
          Man
          Is that so... So he lost that, huh...? Well, the tickets are on me.
          You can ride free today!
    
          Sue
          Really!? Thank you very much, mister!

            ARRIVAL AT RECK MT.
    
            Man
            Alright, you two, take care of yourselves out there!
    
            Justin
            Got it! Thanks!
    
            Sue
            Thank you, elderly man!
    
            Man
            So I'm an elderly man already? Ha, ha, ha... I just don't understand kids these
            days...
    
            *** Enter Jin's house.
    
            Justin
            Huh? There's nobody here. It looks like he just left the house without even
            bothering to lock it. Well I guess there's really nothing we can do about it now.
            I'll just put the wallet here.
    
            Jin
            Hey! Who the hell are you guys!!! What do you think you're doing just barging into
            my house without permission! Why you little thieves!!! Get your filthy hands offa'
            my wallet!!!
    
            Justin
            Huh!? No, no, you've got it all wrong! See, we're searching for a pass to...
    
            Sue
            Don't tell him about that, Jusitn! He won't understand! Tell him about the wallet!
            The wallet!
    
            Jin
            Fwa-ha-ha-ha! You youngins can't fool me! There's not a single chink in my armor;
            I'm ready for anything you've got! Ah! An idea! Maybe I can reform you! Yea, I'll
            lead you away from the dark side!
    
            Sue
            Justin, is this guy really Jin? He sure doesn't look like an adventurer to me.
    
            Jin
            Hey, you little runt! I WAS an adventurer-- the key word here being WAS! You
            fellas, on the other hand, are still actively adventuring I believe.
    
            Sue
            Wha, how did you know that?
    
            Justin
            Oh yeah, I nearly forgot! We've come here to ask for your help...
    
            *** After Justin tells his story...
    
            Justin
            So that's why we're here.
    
            Jin
            O-ho! Came here for a pass to the new world, have ya? Well let me ask you
            something, why do you want to go to Elencia?
    
            Justin
            I'm going to travel to eastern Elencia and discover Enjule!
    
            Jin
            What the- Enjule!? Hah, hah, hah! That's rich! Ee, hee, hee, hee!
    
            Justin
            What's your problem!? It's no laughing matter! I'm serious!
    
            Jin
            Oh? Ah, *HACK*! Sorry, sorry... It's just that, well... Enjule...
    
            Justin
            It DOES exist! I know!
    
            Jin
            Hmm... I think I can understand your story. I guess I should give you a pass...
    
            Justin
            Really!? Thanks!
    
            Jin
            Gyaah, I'm not through!! I can't just give it to you for nothing! Ahem, if thou
            surmount the test I have put before thee, I will bestow upon thee what ye desire!
            Now then, that's how adventurers are supposed to do things!!!
    
            Justin
            Ow! My ears! W-well... ok, I'm ready for this test!
    
            Sue
            That's the spirit, Justin!
    
            Jin
            Yeah, kid, you've got to keep your spunk! Ah, *HACK*! Now then, let's get started!
            Follow me to the mines, and remember, no wimpering will be tolerated!
    
            AT THE ENTRANCE
    
            Jin
            This is the entrance to the Reck Mines. A bunch of ancient monsters have taken up
            residence in here, and their groaning and growlings sounds are keeping me up at
            night. I want you to exterminate the leader of the monsters. If you do it, I'll
            give you a pass. And thusly, I have bestowed a great test upon thee!
    
            Sue
            Yikes, that place is dark and creepy looking.
    
            Jin
            Ah, *HACK*! Of course it is! Well then, are you going to just run home now?
    
            Justin
            Are you kidding!? We're headin' in! You wait here, Jin!
    
            Jin
            Hmm... I wonder if I should let them go in. I'm not sure if they can handle it...
            Ah yes, well, are you heading in right now or are you going to rest first?
    
            *** 3 Choices
            1) Let me at them!
            2) No, we'll go inside in a little while.
            3) %%Save%%
    
            *** Defeat the boss within the mines.
    
            Sue
            We did it, Justin! Jin is certain to give us a pass now... W-what's going on!?
    
            Justin
            Ah! If we stick around here, we'll be buried! Let's get outta' here!
    
            *** Leave the boss's chamber.
    
            Jin
            What are you doing!? Over here... Get over here!
    
            Sue
            Oh! It's Jin!
    
            Jin
            Don't just stand there like an idiot! Come on! The mine's collapsing!
    
            *** After the escape.
    
            Jin
            You alright? Remember a world-class adventurer never gives up! You panicked under
            pressure and failed in noticing the escape route. You're hopeless!
    
            Sue
            Huh? You mean we failed? But we tried our very hardest!
    
            Jin
            Let me teach you something important; a true adventurer doesn't lose hope no
            matter what the circumstances! You must remember this lesson in Elencia!
            Furthermore, you must always try to maintain your devotion and...
    
            Justin
            Huh!? Jin, does that mean...
    
            Jin
            You two show great potential. Ah, and even if this turns out to be a wild goose
            chase you can always lie, eh? Here you go, the pass to the new world, Elencia.
            Take it, Justin.
    
            Justin
            Alright! Now we can go to Elencia!
    
            Sue
            Yay...! Um, cool! Hee, hee... Huh!? Am I imagining things or does something
            smell... odd?
    
            Jin
            Oh that's me. I'm so excited and happy I'm just soaking in sweat, blood, tears,
            and various other things I don't quite understand! E-hee-hee!
    
            Justin
            Eeeh!
    
            Sue
            Eek!
    
            Jin
            Alright, Justin, remember, you have wings, but those wings are for you alone.
    
            Justin
            Wings... for me alone...
    
            Jin
            But don't forget, during the hardest of times, an adventurer can't just depend on
            a pass. You have to trust your heart. That's because an adventurer's heart is his
            greatest strength. Now go forth! And just promise me one thing, Justin! I want you
            to return and tell me of places that I've never seen. I'll be waiting here for
            you!
    
            Justin
            I promise you, Jin! Well then, let's get going.
    
            Sue
            Thanks Jin! Wow, this is really great, Justin! Now let's go home. We can't be
            late!
    
            Justin
            Uh, Jin.. there's something I'd like to ask you...
    
            Jin
            It's about the little one, isn't it? Well there's only one thing I can say, you
            must walk this path alone, Justin... Got it?
    
            Sue
            What's the matter, Justin? Hurry up! Come on, let's go home!
    
            Justin
            Alright, alright... Thanks for the pass, Jin! It really means a lot to me.
    
            Jin
            Bye, Jin! Take care of yourself, okay?

            What's wrong, Justin? You've been keeping to yourself ever since we left Reck
            Mines.
    
            Justin
            R-Really? Don't worry, it's nothing.
    
            Sue
            Hey, I wonder what kind of place the new continent is? I betcha' it's fun and
            interesting!
    
            *** They move outside.
    
            Sue
            Wow! I can't believe we're both really going on an adventure! I'm sure everybody's
            going to be surprised. If we both leave though, Aunt Lily's going to be really
            sad.
    
            Justin
            Sue, please don't tell my mom anything about this.
    
            Sue
            Huh? What do you mean? I don't understand....
    
            Justin
            Jin said that from this point on, it's not fun and games anymore. You'll have to
            stay here, Sue.
    
            Sue
            What are you saying, Justin? Didn't we both promise that no matter what happens,
            we'll always stick together?
    
            Justin
            I've already made up my mind. I can't take a kid along with me!
    
            Sue
            ... ... ...!
    
            Justin
            The ship will be leaving tomorrow. I'm planning on leaving early so it's okay if
            you don't see me off.
    
            Sue
            I'm not a kid.... I'm not a kid! What's going on, Justin! You wouldn't even have
            gotten that ship pass if I didn't help you out!
    
            Justin
            Sue....

            I don't know you! You can go ahead and die for all I care!!!
    
            *** Sue runs away.
    
            Justin
            I promise, Sue. Once I've become an adventurer, I'll come back. Then we can both
            go on an adventure together. What the-? 
    
            ***  Sue comes back to give Justin a little bit of love...

            Gantz
            Hey, Justin! Just what the heck did you do now? I just saw Sue run by crying!
    
            Justin
            Gantz.... It was nothing... really....

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

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

            things you enjoy doing, and write to your mom all the time.
    
            Justin

            Do NOT read JUSTIN!!!
    
            There's this kid who has always been of no help to his parents whatsoever and does
            nothing else every single day but play around, pretending that he's an adventurer.
            He always comes home with cuts and bruises no matter how many times I hit him
            upside the head. This bad kid is my son.
    
            I still remember how much he cried, the day he realized that he'll never see his
            father again. Ever since that day, he's always wanted to be an adventurer. Anyway,
            this adventurer's name is Justin. He's a little bit too kind sometimes and is also
            very absent-minded. However, he has now finally started walking on his own two
            feet. He is really determined to work hard to follow his dream but he still can't
            do any manual labor. That's why I'm begging you to please take care of him. This
            kid is my son, Mr. Gauss. Please help him fulfill his dream.
    
            Justin
            Mom... she knew all along.
    
            Hey Justin! Knowing you, you're probably reading this letter without my
            permission! I've always expected you to eventually mature even just a little bit
            but it doesn't look like you've changed a bit. Make sure that you take care of
            your body. You're dad used to always say,"An adventurer's greatest asset is to
            have a healthy body." And one last thing... wherever you may go, always keep on
            thinking about your dream. Have a safe trip, Justin.
    
            Sailor

          your power and speed will increase. But be careful not to hold down
          for too long, or your power meter will become too high, and you'll
          get exhausted. The trick to it is to properly pace yourself. Also
          remember that you might get award if you do well, so try not to do
          a shoddy job.

          Man
          Hey, hey!! Just what do you think you're doing taking your time
          like that!? And to think, you're supposed to be some adventurer! If
          you do this poorly tomorrow, you're fired, and I'll personally toss
          both of you into the ocean! DO YOU UNDERSTAND!?
    
          Justin
          Hey, it was our first try. We'll do much better from now on!
    
          *** Talk to the officer again.
    
          Officer
          Today's work is finished, you can go back to your rooms and get
          some sleep. Unless of course you want to get some more practice
          swabbing the deck?
    
          *** 2 Choices
          1) Uh, I think I'll have to take a rain check on that.
          2) I can take it!
    
          *** Choose 2
    
          Officer
          Ho ho! What dedication! Then have another go at it!
    
          *** Go back to your quarters and talk to the sailor again
    
          Sailor
          Looks like you're finished. Ha, ha! I can tell by the tired look on
          your face. Now you can relax and get some sleep.
    
          3RD DAY
    
          Sue
          ... Ow, ow, ow! Owww! I'm aching all over!
    
          Justin
          It's just some muscular pain, Sue! Don't worry, you'll get used to
          it! Since you're in pain, I'll try to handle most of the work
          today.
    
          Sue
          Thanks, Justin!
    
          *** Return to the deck and talk to the officer.
    
          Officer
          Ready? Let's get started. You do remember how to do this work, don'
          t you?
    
          *** 2 Choices
          1) Umm, I forgot.
          2) Let's go.

          Alright, looks as though we're through for today. Try to do it a
          little faster tomorrow.
    
          Justin
          Ugh, we have to do this every single day until we reach New Parm?
          Erggh... and it's all your fault, Sue!
    
          Sue
          Hey! You know this never would have happened if you didn't try to
          leave me behind!
    
          *** Attempt to return to your quarters.
    
          Man
          Ok, let's see here... I polished the lens up, and the light has
          been delievered safely...
    
          Justin
          Hey, hey, what's that for!? What a huge light!
    
          Man
          You don't know? Well, it's used to signal adventurers on shore. We
          use something like this all the time! You know, another passenger
          will be boarding soon, and, well... We've got to let the fellow
          know we're coming.
    
          Sue
          ...Someone's boarding!? Out here in the middle of the ocean?!
    
          Man
          That's right! I bet you'll be surprised when you hear this. The
          passenger happens to be the greatest adventurer in New Parm.
    
          Justin
          Wow, an adventurer!?
    
          Man
          This fellow's boarding early tomorrow morning, so don't sleep in!
    
          Justin
          This is unbelievable! The greatest adventurer in New Parm...
    
          THAT NIGHT
    
          Justin
          Hey Sue! What do you think the greatest adventurer in New Parm will
          be like? Well he's a great adventurer, so I bet he's a huge man
          with a beard and rippling muscles!
    
          Sue
          Mmurmr, mmmum... Yes, yes, surely, and he'll have 5 armmms, mmurmr,
          murmm...
    
          Justin
          Hey! You're half asleep... Anyway, when I do meet this adventurer,
          I wonder what I'll ask him? Maybe I should find out how he gets by
          dangerous traps, or ask him what the weak points of ferocious
          monsters are... He, he, I don't think I'm gonna get any sleep
          tonight!
    
          THE 4TH DAY
    
          Voice
          ... Justin! Jusitn!! You'll be sorry if you don't get up soon! Hey,
          Justin, wake up!
    
          Justin
          Ooh, mmm, just... just 10 more seconds...
    
          Sue
          Whaaat are you talking about, Justin!? You're not supposed to sleep
          late because that adventurer is coming!
    
          Justin
          .......!
    
          *** Runs to the stairs.
    
          Justin
          Hey, what are you doing, Sue!? If you don't hurry up, I'll leave
          without you!
    
          Sue
          ... Huh? Well, at least he's awake now.
    
          *** Go upstairs.
    
          Sailor
          ... Ya, yaa! How's this? Oh yeah!
    
          Sue
          Hey, what do you think he's doing?
    
          Justin
          How weird! He looks like an idiot!
    
          Justin
          Hey you! What're you doing?
    
          Sailor
          Oh, this...? This a hip way for sailors and adventurers to greet
          each other. You'll do it when you're older.
    
          Justin
          Hey, is that so? Then I'd better master it now.
    
          *** They practice it.
    
          Sailor
          No, no, no! Like this!
    
          Justin
          L-like this? Yeah, this is cool!
    
          Sue
          Boy... They just look like idiots.
    
          Sailor
          Yeh! You've got good form, kid!
    
          *** Go to the very end of the deck. (note: speech segment translation

          Feena
          Hey! Who are you two? I haven't seen you before.
    
          Justin
          Err, ahem, I, I'm Justi...
    
          Sue
          Wow! A girl!? The greatest adventurer in the new world is a girl!
          Coool! Hey, she's also beautiful. Don't you think so, Justin?!
    
          Feena
          He, he. Thank you. Captain, could you introduce these two to me?
    
          Captain
          Yes, yes, this is the first time you've met. These fellows are
          apprentice sailors. This one is Justin... and here's Sue.
    
          Feena
          Hmm... I'm Feena, pleased to meet you!
    
          Sue
          Hey, hey, Justin! Raise your hand and do that special greeting!
    
          Justin
          Ok! It's a good thing I was just practicting.
    
          *** Starts flailing his arm.
    
          Justin
          I'm... Justin!! Please to meet you!
    
          Feena
          ...!
    
          *** Shakes his hand.
    
          Feena
          Aha, ha, ha, don't you know? This real adventurers and sailors use
          to greet each other. Well, yes, for right now let's
          han-nnd-shay-kk! When you're promoted, we'll high five.
    
          Captain
          ...Well, shall we go, Feena? Justin, you know what they say about
          idle hands...
    
          Feena
          Good luck with your work, you two. Then... let's go, Captain.
    
          Justin
          Man! I wish people would treat me like I was just another person,
          instead of a little kid...
    
          Sue
          But wasn't that cool!? I want to be just like her.
    
          Justin
          The greatest adventurer in the new world, huh...? She certainly was
          cute...
    
          THE 5TH DAY
    
          Sue
          Ohhh, how boring! Yet another day of swabbing the deck!
    
          Justin
          Hey, what are you talking about, Sue!? It's better than being cast
          out into the ocean, isn't it!? That's all thanks to me, you know!?
    
          Sue
          ... Huh!? It's clean? Who did this for us?
    
          Voice
          Hey you! You're late! You're late!
    
          Feena
          You'll never be real sailors if you oversleep like that! Oh well,
          morning, Justin and Sue! Looks to be another hot day today.
    
          Justin
          Hey, you remember our names? I thought you weren't even paying
          attention to us...
    
          Feena
          Well, the memory of great adventurers is legendary! Anyway, I just
          thought we could talk and clean this deck together... but you never
          came. You know, you've got a long ways to go before you become a
          real sailor.
    
          Justin
          Hey, that's pretty harsh... Anyway, I'm an adventurer not a sailor!
    
          Feena
          Adventurer, huh? The captain said you were apprentice sailors.
    
          Justin
          Oh, well I'm hiding my identity right now! There is a very
          important reason behind it. You see, Sue...
    
          Sue
          What do you think you're doing!? Hey, you're gonna get me tossed
          overboard!
    
          Feena
          Tossed?
    
          Sue
          Yeah, yeah, listen, Feena! Justin was really mean to me and...
    
          *** Later
    
          Justin
          ... and that's what happened. See, wasn't that a spectacular
          adventure?
    
          Sue
          See!? Now do you understand why I said Justin was so mean?
    
          Feena
          Ah, ha, ha! Well, I can see that you're really good friends! Ha,
          ha, ha... that's funny! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time!
    
          Sue
          Ok, ok, Feena, tell us your story! I'm sure we're not the only ones
          with a clever story!
    
          Feena
          Hmm, right... So what should I talk about?
    
          *** 3 Choices
          1) What type of adventures do you go on?
          2) Boy, I'd like to have some adventures in the new world...
          3) Feena, do you live in New Parm?
    
          *** Choose 1
    
          Feena
          Hmm, I guess I can't tell you all about that in one sitting. Since,
          it's still several days before we reach New Parm, I'll tell you a
          little about my adventures everyday!
    
          Justin
          Ugh, that means we're going to be swabbing the decks for a long
          time... Shoot! Being an apprentice is such a pain!
    
          Feena
          Aha, ha, ha! Oh, it won't be so bad! I'll help you! It'll be fun!

          Sue
          We're going to the adventurers' society in New Parm. Have you
          joined it, Feena?
    
          Feena
          Ye... yes... Of course I've joined.
    
          Feena
          .... That's right... We'll should go adventuring together, it would
          be lots of fun!
    
          *** Choose 3
    
          Feena
          Where I live? Yeah, it's right near New Parm. It's a nice place,
          and I live there by myself.
    
          Sue
          By yourself? That's great! Isn't that wonderful, Justin?
    
          Feena
          My parents died a long time ago. I used to live with my older
          sister, but... now we live seperately.

          Feena
          .... The wind... all of the seagulls suddenly... I... I'm going to
          talk to the captain right now. You should go back to your sleeping
          quarters. Bye!
    
          Justin
          Hmm, she was laughing just a second ago, and then she suddenly
          became so grave and serious... I wonder what happened?
    
          Sue
          Hey, look! There's not a single seagull in the sky anymore!
    
          Justin
          That's right... Somehow I have a feeling that something exciting is
          about to happen! Let's go check it out!
    
          *** Go inside the captain's room...
    
          Feena
          ... Captain! The winds have changed, the ocean has become
          turbulent, and strange clouds are beginning to form.....
    
          Captain
          This is terrible. We must act quickly. We should begin gathering
          the crew together right away...
    
          Feena
          Somehow... I have a terrible feeling about all this.
    
          Justin
          Feena, what's going on!?
    
          Feena
          Nothing. Now don't worry about a thing, you two. Please, just go
          back to the crew quarters and relax, ok?
    
          Sue
          Justin, let's go back to our room. It looks like they're doing
          something important.
    
          Feena
          Captain, we must do all we can to change directions. Quickly,
          summon the crew together!
    
          Captain
          ... But, Feena... you don't suppose it's that ghost ship that's
          rumored to exist? Perhaps that's what your terrible feeling is
          about.
    
          Feena
          Now bring that up again! The ghost ship is nothing but a ridiculous
          superstition!
    
          Justin
          Hey, a ghost ship!? Tell me more!
    
          Feena
          Justin, did you hear me? I thought I told you to go to your
          quarters and rest.
    
          Justin
          Hey, do you think you can boss me around?
    
          Feena
          Justin, this isn't some childish game. Be a good boy and do as I
          say.
    
          Sailor
          Ms. Feena... It's... it's horrible! Come to the deck right away!!
    
          Justin and Feena
          !
    
          Feena
          Captain, I'm going to try to calmly inform the crew of this, and
          order them to mobilize. The passengers are probably getting
          nervous....
    
          Captain
          Nooo, this can't be happening!! If this is the real ghost ship,
          we're doomed, doomed I tell you!!
    
          Sue
          Justin, come on, let's go back to our room...
    
          Justin
          We can't go back! Seems like a great adventure is brewing. Let's
          head to the deck!
    
          *** Head to the deck.
    
          Sue
          Justin, wait up!!
    
          Justin

          Sue
          Wow...... Uh, I have a feeling we should leave now..
    
          Justin
          Yeah, we're heading in! My true adventures shall begin with the
          total extermination of the ghost ship!
    
          Voice
          How pitiful! Are there any real sailors on this ship?!

          *** Go over there.
    
          Feena
          Now one thing is clear... If we don't do anything about this
          mysterious vessel, we'll never arrive in Elencia alive! Why, the
          lives of the passengers are at stake! Men, show me your true
          sailing spirit! Captain, their orders please?
    
          Captain
          ... It's no good, no good! We're already doomed! The ghost ship has
          appeared, and now we're all gonna die!!
    
          Feena
          It's nothing but a ruined ship! The ghost ship is merely a
          superstition. Now, rally your crew!

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

          a bushel of spineless seaweed!

          Bu-but Feeenaaa.... what can we do? I mean, we're facing the ghost
          ship here.. and aren't we just sailors? And if our ship can't move,
          what can we really do...?
    
          Feena
          Don't say such pathetic things!! Are you not men of the sea....!?

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

          So everyone, these children are the only displaying any valor! Are
          there any heroes among you that will come with me?!
    
          Justin
          Hey! I said I'd go with you! I'm going to exterminate that ghost
          ship!
    
          Feena
          Exteriminate a ghost ship!? What a ridiculous idea! A real
          adventurer wouldn't believe in ghosts, and you certainly aren't a
          real adventurer.
    
          *** To the crew.
    
          Feena
          Justin is going to calmly and obediently wait aboard this ship.
    
          *** 3 Choices
          1) Well, if I don't go, who's going with you!?
          2) I'm worried about you, Feena.
          3. Rather clever of you to obtain such a monopoly on all the
          adventures on this ship.
    
          *** Choose 1
    
          Justin
          If I don't go, who's going with you!? Besides this an adventure,
          and I'm an adventurer!
    
          Feena
          But do you really understand this situation? I don't even if know
          if you'll be of any use to me! You'll proably just slow me down...
          I'm sure of it!
    
          *** Choose 2
    
          Justin
          I'm worried about you, Feena. I can't just let a little girl go off
          into that frightening ship...
    
          Feena
          .... A little girl!? How rude! Why, I'm a professional adventurer,
          and an amateur adventurer like yourself need not worry about me! I
          can take care of myself!
    
          *** Choose 3
    
          Justin
          So, we finally get the chance to do something exciting on this
          ship, and you try to keep the fun all to yourself!
    
          Feena
          Justin, stop thinking like such a simpleton! Adventuring is not a
          game. You could be killed. And furthermore, thinking of it in that
          way reveals your total lack of experience!
    
          Justin
          That's it! I'll just take care of this myself!
    
          Sue
          Huh!? B-but...
    
          Feena
          Well... this is troubling...
    
          Sailor
          Feena, as per your orders, I've prepared a way for you to cross
          over into the ghost ship.
    
          Feena
          In that case, there's no time to lose... Oh alright, Justin, you
          can come with me! But promise me you'll return to the ship if you
          find you can't handle this, alright?
    
          Justin
          Alright! I promise!
    
          Feena
          Then let's get going !

                  The Investigation
    
    
    
         AFTER BOARDING THE GHOST SHIP
    
         Justin
         This is cool! I can't believe we're on a real ghost ship.
    
         Feena
         How many times do I have to say it!? Ghost ships aren't real!
    
         Justin
         Oh, come on! I know you've never seen anything like this!
    
         Sue
         Uh, Justin, how are we going to get down from here?
    
         Justin
         How? Why, like this!
    
         Justin leaps down.
    
         Feena
         Errg, that boy...
    
         Sue
         Justin, wait for us!
    
         *** Sue and Feena jump down.
    
         Justin
         Ooh... Heh, heh! Boy, I'm excited!
    
         Feena
         Calm down! You're not concentrating!
    
         Justin
         Sorry, sorry. But my adventuring blood stirs, and I can't help it.
         Heh, heh.
    
         *** Go near the circular hole in the ship.
    
         Feena
         Looks like we can jump down to the lower part of the ship from here...
         I'll go first, then you follow.
    
         *** They all jump down.
    
         Sue
         Hey, it's pitch black in here. I can't see a thing.
    
         Feena
         Ok, you both made it.. Stay alert, and watch your step.
    
         Justin
         No need to tell me. I'm a world-class adventurer, I'm always prepared!
         What's this...? Feels strange...
    
         Feena
         Ahh! Justin, you pervert! (slap!)
    
         Justin
         Ahhhhhhowwwww!!!
    
         Feena
         Ugh! Justin, stop goofing around!
    
         Justin
         Hey! So, I'm just following behind, minding my own business... and you
         then suddenly stop moving! How am I at fault!? Where was I goofing
         around!?
    
         Feena
         Justin, you weirdo, don't you know?! Oh, forget it. Let's move on
    
         Sue
         Justin, you naughty boy!
    
         *** Walk around the corner into a room, walk through that room until you
         reach a hole in the floor.
    
         Feena
         We can jump down to a lower area of the ship from here too.
    
         *** Jump down, walk to a rope, and climb up. Then, walk up steps to some
         meat.
    
         Feena
         Justin, look out!
    
         Feena
         Justin, are you alright? Were you injured?
    
         Sue
         Wow, Feena! That was cool! Boy, Justin seems so incompetent compared
         to you.
    
         Justin
         Hey! So I was a little unprepared for that, no big deal!
    
         *** Solve the lever puzzle, go through the next room, go upstairs, and,
         finally, go near the shut door closest to the stairs.
    
         Justin
         This door is locked... Hmm... I can't open it.
    
         Feena
         Hey, let me try... There! It's open.
    
         Sue
         Wow, Feena can do anything!
    
         *** Go to other shut door.
    
         Feena
         Stay alert! I've got another bad feeling... A feeling like an animal
         is stalking us.
    
         Justin
         But, Feena, this is a ghost ship! Why would animals be here?
    
         Feena
         Justin... I know there's one near here.
    
         Justin
         Huh? Right near here...? You're not talking about me are you!?
    
         Feena
         Justin... unless you start paying closer attention to what's going on,
         you're life will be in perpetual danger.
    
         *** Go inside and look at the book on the desk.
    
         Justin
         Uh, what's this?
    
         Feena
         .... it looks like the ship's log. Perhaps this could help understand
         what happened to this ship. I think I'll read through some of it. "Our
         ship was suddenly snatched by a giant tenticle, and then, before we
         knew it, we were drawn into a battle to the death. Unless we defeat
         this accursed monster, we will never see the sight of land again." ...
         Then it ends.
    
         Sue
         A "monster"? I wonder what it's like...
    
         Feena
         Shh! Quiet... I sense something! Get ready!
    
         *** A monster appears.
    
         Feena
         Watch out!! It's the monster!
    
         *** After killing the octopus beast...
    
         Justin
         So this ship was attacked by that monster...?
    
         Feena
         Yes, that must be it... That beast probably devoured all the people
         aboard this ship...
    
         Justin
         Woah, woah, woah! What's happening?!
    
         Feena
         Oh no! The ship is sinking! Justin, we've got to get out of here! If
         the ship capsizes, we're done for!
    
         *** Go to the upper deck.
    
         Sue
         Wha-what should we do!? The water is already up here..
    
         Feena
         We're alright! Just leave everything to me. World-class adventurers
         are always prepared with an escape plan.
    
         *** Feena brings down a rope.
    
         Feena
         Now hurry! Climb up this rope!
    
         BACK ON BOARD THE FERRY BOAT.
    
         Sailors
         ... Hurrah, hurrah! You're back! We were so worried about you!
    
         Justin
         No need to worry. Why, that ship was a lot easier than swabbing the
         deck!
    
         Sailor
         Wow, really!? Oh yeah, the ship should start moving again soon.
         Engineers are working to repair the engine as we speak.
    
         Justin
         Really? That's great! So I guess that squid stopped the ship, huh?
         What an awful beast.
    
         Feena
         Well, didn't I tell you? It wasn't ghosts at all, right, Captain?
    
         Captain
         Right again, Feena! Now we're back on course to Elencia, safe and
         sound. I'm greatly indebted to you...
    
         Feena
         Captain! I had help you know! You must thank Justin and Sue too! Only
         our combined strength could destroy that horrible ship.
    
         Captain
         Is that so? Well... I guess I didn't really think you two fellows had
         what it takes...
    
         Feena
         Well, to be honest with you... I didn't think so either... but you did
         great! For your first adventure, I give you a 100 out of 100, perfect
         score!
    
         Feena
         You're pretty cool, Justin.
    
         Justin
         Eh, hehe... well it wasn't... somehow, I feel so awkward...
    
         Sue
         Hey, Justin! Why's your face all red?
    
         Pooy
         Puu, puu!
    
         Justin
         Huh, what're you talking about, Sue!?
    
         Sue
         Aha, ha, ha!
    
         *** Back to the crew quarters. Talk to the sailor near your bed.
    
         Sailor
         You two did a great deed today! I have a totally different opinion of
         you guys now! Why, you weren't just boasting when you said you were an
         adventurer, were you? Anyway, you probably want to just get to bed
         now. The ship is safe now, thanks to you, so you can sleep without
         worry.

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

         Justiiiin, good morning... *sigh* Let's goooo swab the deck...
    
         *** Head toward the deck.
    
         Officer
         ... Hmm? Justin, Sue, did you come to swab the deck? I'm very sorry
         about this, but... you've been fired! No more swabbing the deck for
         you two...
    
         Justin
         F-fired? Why?
    
         Sue
         No! How could you?! We've been so dilligent in doing our work!
    
         Officer
         Aha, ha, ha, ha! Don't be so upset! Now listen to me. We've arrived in

          mom gave me a letter so that I can get in.

          Hey, it's that special adventurer greeting! Great work, Justin!
    
          Feena
          He, he... I think you have what it takes to be an adventurer,
          Justin. I'd like to adventure with you again sometime! Then,
          farewell for now! May the spirits protect you during your great
          adventures!
    
          *** Go inside the building (adventurers' society information desk) in
          the harbor area. Talk to the man behind the desk.
    
          Clerk
          Yawn... mmm, I'm so sleepy today... I wonder if I'd get paid if I
          slept all day..? Huh? What's your business here?
    
          Justin
          What's my business? I just came here to become an adventurer.
    
          Clerk
          Oh boy... Well you have to follow the standard procedure. Go to the
          plaza in the center of town, our main office is there.. Yawn.
    
          CENTRAL NEW PARM
    
          *** Go to the adventurers' society in the center of town (it's heavily
          decorated) Talk to woman at desk.
    
          Receptionist
          Welcome, come on in! What kind of adventure do you wish to go on?
          We here at the adventurers' society are prepared to send you on an
          adventure that will satisfy your demanding standards!
    
          Justin
          Prepared an adventure? I don't quite understand what you mean...
          Oh, I see! We want to go to Alent! The center of the Enjule
          civilization!
    
          Receptionist
          Alent of the Enjule civilization? I'm afraid we don't have a tour
          to Alent prepared. There is a ruin of Enjule to the far south of
          here...
    
          Justin
          Really!? Well, maybe I'll find a way to Alent if I go there! So how
          do I get there?
    
          Receptionist
          I'm very sorry but, a tour to Domu would be dangerous, and we don't
          handle dangerous tours for our customer's sake.
    
          Justin
          You won't go if it's dangerous... An adventure isn't an adventure
          unless it's dangerous!
    
          *** Talk to her again.
    
          Receptionist
          Perhaps you'd like to become an adventurer...? Well, why didn't you
          say so? To become a member of the adventurers' society you have to
          get the chairman's permission. He's in the room behind me.
    
          Justin
          If I become a member, will someone help me get to Domu?
    
          Receptionist
          Why, nobody travels to Domu, but we will give you a map of the new
          world if you become an adventurer, so you can get there yourself.
    
          *** Try to go in the room behind her.
    
          Voice
          If you want to enter the chairman's room, tell me the password! You
          can't enter unless you get it righty-o, oh, oh!
    
          Justin
          The password!?
    
          *** Talk to the receptionist again.
    
          Receptionist
          Oh yes, oh yes... If someone asks you the password say, "I'm the
          servant of the great Pakon, oh!" Got it?
    
          Justin
          The great Pakon...? My mom's letter was addressed to someone named
          Gaus...
    
          Receptionist
          The chairman's room is over there, ok? The meaning of that password
          is a private matter.
    
          *** Try to go in the room again.
    
          Voice
          If you want to enter the chairman's room, tell me the password! You
          can't enter unless you get it righty-o, oh, oh!
    
          *** 3 Choices
          1) The great Pakon is the most handsome guy in town, oh!
          2) I'm the servant of the great Pakon, oh!
          3) We all yearn for the great Pakon, oh!
    
          *** Choose 1 or 3
    
          Voice
          Hoo, hoooo! That's true, that's true! But I'm afraid it's not the
          password, so you can't enter-o, oh, oh!
    
          *** Choose 2
    
          Voice
          Bingo! Feel free to enter-o, oh, ohhhhh!
    
          *** Talk to man behind desk.
    
          Pakon
          I'm the Pakon, the chairman of the adventurers' society-o, oh, oh!
          What's your business here?
    
          Justin
          Ehh!! You're the chairman!? Now way! I was certain the chairman was
          named Gaus!
    
          Pakon
          My father, Gaus, died a long, long time ago. I'm the chairman
          now-o, oh, oh, oh!
    
          Justin
          Hmm... So that explains it...
    
          Sue
          Justin, just tell him you want to join the society!
    
          Justin
          Hmm... Well, if Gaus is dead, I guess I have no choice. I have to
          ask this dweeb... Alright, we want to join the society. What do we
          have to do?
    
          Pakon
          We have the adventurers we can handle right now-o, oh, oh. You're
          out of luck unless you can convince one of the other adventurer's
          to hand over his adventuring pass-o, oh, oh.
    
          Justin
          Now wait just a second! Look at this, you! This is letter from my
          mom introducing me to Gaus! My father was an adventurer too. He
          knew your father...
    
          Pakon
          Hehh, hehh... So that's it... heh? You think you can get an
          adventuring pass that easily, heh? Well I'm the one who decides
          whether you get a pass or not-o, oh, oh! How 'bout if I just toss
          this little scrap of paper away...? What do ya think of that?
    
          *** Talk to him again.
    
          Pakon
          This little scrap of paper is a new pass I made after becoming
          chairman-o, oh, oh! Nice, huh?
    
          Justin
          What, what is that!? Feena's picture is on the front, and there's
          something pink...
    
          Sue
          Yes, I can see that!
    
          Pakon
          Feena looks so cute on the front-o, oh, oh! Feena is the best
          adventurer here... I'm engaged to her-o, oh, oh! We'll make such a
          cute couple, and we'll be married very soon-o, oh, oh!
    
          Justin
          Is that true!? How could Feena marry a weirdo like you!?
    
          Pakon
          H-h-how could you say such a rude thing!? Now I'll never let you
          enter the society-o, oh, oh...
    
          *** Talk to him again.
    
          Pakon
          Hey, don't forget that you're my servant, you cheeky boy.
    
          Justin
          What do you mean, your servant!? I don't remember being made your
          servant!
    
          Pakon
          No, no, when you entered here you said it-o, oh, oh! You said "I'm
          the servant of the great Pakon, oh!"
    
          Justin
          Uh, I guess I did...
    
          *** Talk to him again.
    
          Pakon
          I'll never let a rude guy like you enter the adventurers'
          society-o, oh, oh. So get out of here-o, oh, oh.
    
          Justin
          Hmmph, then I guess I'll take my leave now! I don't need to enter
          this ridiculous society! I can handle this on my own!
    
          *** Leave the room.
    
          Justin
          Geez, I didn't know the chairman was such a freak... I wonder if
          Feena is actually engaged to that guy? What do you think, Sue?
    
          Sue
          Hmm... well it's difficult to say... Feena sure has bad taste if
          she's engaged. Well, we really have no way of knowing one way or
          the other right now... Anyway, why don't we go visit Feena's house?
          She'll surely lend us a map. Remember, Feena's house is outside
          Parm at the end of the Meril mountain trail, right? Let's go!
    
          *** Leave town and travel through the Meril road to Feena's house...

              A Conversation with Feena
    
    
         INSIDE FEENA'S HOUSE
    
         Justin
         Wow, is this Feena's house? It sure seems well made... I wonder if
         she built herself?
    
         Sue
         Cool! All the furniture looks like it was hand-made by her. Hey, why
         don't we have look around?
    
         *** Look at the um... pantaloons.
    
         Sue
         Ohhh! Look, look, Justin! Doesn't that look cuuute! I want a pair!
    
         Justin
         Sue, you mustn't touch that. I think Feena will be upset... W-what
         is that!? It's her p-panties!!
    
         *** You took Feena's panties!
    
         Voice
         Hey! Justin, Sue, thanks for coming over!
    
         *** She steps in.
    
         Feena
         I'm glad to see you. Boy, you sure got here quickly...
    
         Justin
         Huh!? No, no, no, you're mistaken! That, this... Argh! Sue!?
    
         Sue
         Hello, Feena!
    
         Feena
         ...Justin? What is that you're holding...? Eeee! Justin!! What are
         you doing!? Those are mine!
    
         *** Feena's panties were taken away from you.
    
         Feena
         Why! I should have known... scattering all my things around...
    
         Justin
         N-no, Feena it's not that...
    
         Sue
         What's wrong, you two? Your faces are so red.
    
         Feena
         Those were sort of dirty... W-well! Aren't you two hungry? Let's
         eat!
    
         *** After eating.
    
         Justin
         Ahh... that was great! I'm actually sort of surprised that you're so
         skilled at cooking.
    
         Sue
         This mint tea is soooo delicous! Feena, you know how do everything!
    
         Justin
         But, Feena, you live out here by yourself, right? Don't you ever get
         lonely?
    
         Feena
         Yes, I do... But if you stayed here with me I probably wouldn't be
         lonely...
    
         *** 2 Choices
         1) I-I can't do that. I have adventures to go on...
         2) R-really? Well then I guess I'll do that...
    
         *** Choose 1 or 2
    
         Feena
         Aha, ha, ha, ha! It was a joke! A joke! Did you think I was serious,
         Justin?
    
         Justin
         Wha-what? A joke? Well I guess I wasn't really sure about it...
    
         *** Feena says this only if you choose 2...
    
         Feena
         He, he... Still, I'm glad you said that...
    
         *** The following occurs if you chose 1 or 2...
    
         Feena
         Well, anyway, did you come here to talk to me about something? So
         what is it, Justin?
    
         *** 3 Choices
         1) Can you lend us a map of the new world?
         2) Are you engaged to the chairman of the adventurers' society?
         3) Will you adventure with us?
    
         *** Choose 1
    
         Justin
         We want to go to the Domu Ruins, so can you lend us your map of the
         new world?
    
         Feena
         Hey, you didn't join the adventurers' society? If you become a
         member, they'll give you a map.
    
         Justin
         I gave up trying to join! Those jerks over there aren't even
         adventurers! They're nothing but tour guides! Especially the
         chairman! What was wrong with him!? How did a klutz like him become
         chairman, anyway!?
    
         Sue
         But Feena's different! She's a real adventurer.
    
         Feena
         Umm, I'm in bind here... According to the society's rules, you can't
         hand over a map to someone who isn't an adventurer. So... if I lent
         you this map, I wouldn't be able to get work as an adventurer... Is
         that all you wanted to ask me, Justin?
    
         *** Choose 2
    
         Justin
         Now how do I put this..? The chairman of the adventurers' society,
         Pakon... he was saying something strange... Something about you two
         being engaged...
    
         Feena
         Stop! To think we're engaged... Pakon's just spreading a rumor!!
         That Pakon... no matter how many times I refuse him, he just won't
         listen. I can't stand it anymore! I went home as soon we got off the
         boat, because I didn't want to see him. I really wanted to show you
         around town.
    
         Sue
         Aha, so that's it! I thought that was strange. Isn't that a relief,
         Justin?
    
         Feena
         So, Justin, is that all you wanted to ask me?
    
         *** Choose 3
    
         Justin
         Feena, will you adventure with us? We're going to find the legendary
         Enjule!
    
         Feena
         Didn't you say something about that when you were talking about
         Saruto... in Mecina? Isn't it cool how the ruins of the ancient
         civilization seem to be alive?
    
         Sue
         They really are alive, Feena! A girl named Riethe said so! She said
         we should go to Alent!
    
         Feena
         Huh, so that really happened?! So, Justin's Spirit Stone is real!? I
         thought for certain that was just something Justin dreamed up...
         Wow, that's unbelievable! That's a great discovery!
    
         Justin
         In any case, I'm sure many of the secrets of Enjule are hiding in
         Domu as well! Let's journey there together, Feena!
    
         Feena
         Thank you for inviting me, Justin. But.... I can't. It's against the
         rules of the adventurers' society to go on an adventure without
         permission.
    
         Justin
         What?! Feena! You talk about nothing but rules, rules! How can there
         be times when an adventurer isn't allowed to adventure out into the
         world!?
    
         Feena
         Justin, stop acting as though a pro is the same thing as an amateur.
         I always obey the rules precisely. It's my way of doing things.
         Adventures who break the rules have their pass invalidated and are
         banished from the society. Do you understand, Justin? How horrible
         it is for an adventurer to be unable to adventure? So, for me, this
         pass..
    
         Justin
         No I don't understand! You can't adventure with a pass, and even if
         you do have one, you have to be constantly subject to the society's
         approval of where you adventure! If that really is the case, you
         can't call yourself an adventurer at all! Adventurers are like the
         wind! Adventurers have to follow their own path, Feena!
    
         Feena
         .......
    
         Justin
         Why are you so quiet, Feena? Feena, you're not like those fools at
         the society, right? Right!?
    
         Feena
         T-that is...
    
         Sue
         What's that music?
    
         Voice
         .....Feena my loooove! I've come to see you-o, oh, oh, ohhhhhh!
    
         Sue
         "Oh, oh, oh"...? Justin! That voice...!
    
         Feena
         W-wait here, Justin. I'll go outside and see what's going on.
    
         Voice
         Ahhhhhh!
    
         Sue
         Justin! That's Feena's voice!!
    
         Justin
         Huh? Where's Feena?
    
         Sue
         Justin! Over there!!
    
         Feena
         Leave this place, Pakon! This the 2nd time I've told you never to
         come here!
    
         Pakon
         Tonight is the night our 2 hearts will become entwined forever-o,
         oh, oh! We'll be married, and we can wash each others pants-o, oh,
         oh!
    
         Feena
         Wash your own pants! Haven't I already told you I have no desire to
         marry you!?
    
         Pakon
         I can understand that you feel awkward about this-o, oh, oh. But i
         know you really love me-o, oh, oh! Plus, if you won't marry me, I'll
         invalidate your adventuring pass-o, oh, oh, ohhhhhh! And then you
         won't be able to go an adventures, will you-o, oh, oh!?
    
         Feena
         Pakon...! That has nothing to do with this!
    
         Justin
         Hey, Pakon! You slug! Don't you see that Feena despises you!?
    
         Pakon
         Why were you in Feena's house-o, oh, oh? Just who are you?
    
         Justin
         W-what? That... Mmm.. I'm her friend... right?
    
         Feena
         No! You're.. you're my fiancee!
    
         Sue
         What?!
    
         Justin
         Huh? H-hey... Feena!?
    
         Feena
         Shhh! Just play along. Maybe if Pakon believes us, he'll give up
         trying to marry me.
    
         *** To Pakon.
    
         Feena
         I love him, Pakon. He proposed to me 1 year ago... but we weren't
         able to be married.
    
         Justin
         T-that's right, that's right! Keep your hands off my woman!
    
         Feena
         I'm sorry I kept this a secret from you, Pakon, but I'm sure you'll
         find someone else, and she'll be just right for you.
    
         Pakon
         ....I feel sorry for you, Feena. This man has tricked you into
         loving him... But I will save you-o, oh, oh! In fact I brought my
         bodyguard along just in case something like this happened-o, oh, oh.
         ....Mr. Chan! Come on over here!

         Justin
         I see... That guy named Chan must of knocked me out....!! Sue! What
         happened to Feena!?
    
         Sue
         Those guys forced her to go with them. They were saying something
         about a wedding ceremony. Hey, Justin... what should we do?
    
         Justin
         I've know what I must do, Sue! I'm going to rescue Feena, and teach
         Pakon a lesson he won't soon forget!!
    
         Sue
         I thought you would say that! Let's head to New Parm!

      Girl
      Um, yeah. There's a hidden passageway inside there. But it's really

      to marry you!
    
      Pakon
      So what-o, oh, ohhhhh! I, the great chariman of the adventurers'
      society, ordered this marriage to take place! Or perhaps you'd prefer
      to turn in your adventuring pass, Feena?
    
      Feena

      can't go adventuringat all.
    
      Feena
      Pakon, I'm returning this pass. I don't need it anymore.
    
      Pakon
      What, what are saying-o, oh, oh?
    
      Feena
      ... I finally recalled something, adventurers are supposed to be free
      like the wind.
    
      Justin
      Feena...!
    
      Feena
      ... How could I forget. Long ago I chosemy own destiny like the wind
      and clouds. I choseto be an adventurer... Noone decides where thewind
      blows. An adventurer's heart is not controlled by a pass. Farewell.
      From now on I amlike the wind. I choose my own path.
    
      Pakon
      Waaaah, Feeeena!!
    
      Feena
      Thank you! Justin, Sue, you rescued me!

      And... now you're not a member of thesociety, right?
    
      Feena
      Yeah and I feel great. Let's go home,together!
    
      Feena
      Ahhh!
    
      Justin
      Wha!? What's going on!?
    
      People
      Hooray, hooray!! Congratulations on thewedding! Oh, oh, look, look!
      There so young! Howcute, they're so embarrassed. Oh they make aperfect
      couple! I'm so envious! Man, I wish I hadbride that pretty... heh!?
      Where's Pakon?! Whatdid you do to him!?
    
      Justin
      H-huh!? Well I...
    
      People
      Hey you there! What a rude thing to say ! This is a wedding, you're
      supposed to be happy! So be happy already! .. Well, I guess you're
      right. Alright ! Congratuuuuuuuulaaaaaations!
    
      Sue
      Yeah, yeah, you're such a cuuuutecouple!
    
      Pooy
      Puu, puu, puu!
    
      Justin
      Ha, ha, ha. Well, now we're in a bind...What should we do, Feena?
    
      Feena
      I wonder... Well... let's just go back to my house! This is too
      embarrassing!
    
      FEENA'SHOUSE
    
      Feena
      That was strange. They all thought we had gotten married. What a
      celebration!
    
      Sue
      Justin's face looked funny! You couldsee in his eyes that he was
      completely shocked!
    
      Justin
      Hey, that's a little a harsh...
    
      Feenaand Sue
      A-ha, ha, ha!
    
      Feena
      Well then! I bet you two are tired. Make yourself at home and get some
      rest. I've finally cleaned up this tent. Until now there all sortsof
      things just lying around... Since I sometimeskeep a lost lamb in my
      bed; and sometimes there's a heavy storm, and the tent is nearly blown
      away.I'm often away here for several days while I'm adventuring. I'm
      always glad to arrive in thiswarm, cozy tent after a tiring
      adventure... So Justin what do you usually think about on thenight
      before you begin a big adventure? Are you sometimes scared during the
      night?
    
      Justin
      Huh? Why would I be scared? I'm always so excited I can't sleep a wink!
      Well, I guess I do ocassionally feel a little uneasy too.
    
      Feena
      I... used to think that the only real adventures were the ones the
      adventurers' society sent me on... Isn't that strange? There were
      adventures long before the adventurers' society was created... I want
      to adventure with you,but...
    
      Justin
      Feena...
    
      Feena
      ...Let's sleep now. You two are going to want get up early tomorrow,
      right?
    
      THE NEXT DAY
    
      Justin
      Yaaaawn... Hey, Feena's gone... I wonder where she went?
    
      *** Go outside.
    
      Feena
      Ahh, what a pleasant morning.. Morning,Justin! So how was it? Did you
      get any sleep last night?
    
      Justin
      Huh? Uh, ah..
    
      Feena
      Is that so? Justin, do you know what path this wind is taking? It was
      born in the mountains and delievers the sound of birds and the
      fragrence of forests. I thought about thesights the wind might have
      seen all night. I'dlike to become the wind and soar through the skies
      with you. Seeing everything with you.
    
      Justin
      Feena...
    
      Feena
      I love the wind. You've made remember this long forgotten feeling...
      Let's go Justin, let's follow the wind together!
    
      Justin
      Yes! Let's go, Feena! But when should wedepart?
    
      Feena
      Very soon, Justin. I've been waiting for this feeling.. this moment for
      a long time.
    
      ON AN AIRSHIP OF THE GARLYSLE ARMY
    
      Baal
      ... So did you do it? Did you locate the final fragment?
    
      Myuren
      Unfortunately, not yet...
    
      Baal
      Unless we can gather all the fragments,"The Yggdrasil Project" will not
      beable to advance to its final phase. We must never give up stop this
      search until every fragment isin our possession.
    
      Myuren
      At this moment, an operation is occuring within a huge forest near the
      Domu Ruins. If goes smoothly, we should acquire new information
      about...
    
      Baal
      ... I see... Perhaps you'll catch himthis time. I'm anticipating a
      satsifactory outcome.
    
      BACK AT FEENA'S HOUSE
    
      Feena
      Well, I think we're ready to start traveling to Domu! Make sure you
      don't forget anything. Now, first of all we have to cross the Rangle
      Mountains located south of New Parm. The ruins arelocated in a desert
      beyond the mountains.
    
      Justin
      Alright! We're off to Domu!

           *** Travel through the first part of the Rangle Mountains and walk by
           the bubbling spring.
    
           Feena
           This looks like a pretty safe spot. We don't want to overexert
           ourselves traveling so why don't we set up camp now?
    
           *** Select Feena.
    
           Feena
           What an interesting fate. I never would have been able to guess
           when I first met you two aboard that ship that we would end up
           camping together in these remote mountains.
    
           Justin
           Ha, ha, ha. I don't think you had much faith in me back then...
    
           Sue
           Why, that's because you're always acting like a little kid. I
           don't blame her.
    
           Feena
           He, he.. But Justin really helped me out back there at the
           church. You saved my life~!
    
           *** Select Sue.
    
           Feena
           Are you okay, Sue? Did all that mountain climbing tire you out?
    
           Sue
           Nah, not at all! Because we're all adventurers! That was a piece
           of cake for the likes of us!
    
           Feena
           Really, then I guess I have nothing to worry about! Anyway, I've
           been wondering, how was life like in Parm?
    
           Sue
           Justin was always getting into trouble! I wonder if he's if he's
           changed at all? What were you like when you were a kid, Feena?
    
           Feena
           Wha!? Me!? Ummm, let's see.. I was always around my older sister.
           She was a really nice person... but 2 years ago she suddenly went
           off to join the army and left me...
    
           *** Select Sue.
    
           Sue
           Hmm, so Feena's sister is in the Garlysle Army.. We saw several
           woman soldiers at Saruto, you know? I wonder if one of them could
           of been your sister?
    
           Justin
           How can you say that, Sue!? That one of those ugly, mean battle
           axes was Feena's sister!
    
           Sue
           Well, there was that group of 3 mean women, but there was also
           that one around the soldier with gold hair. I thought she was
           pretty and looked friendly.
    
           Justin
           Hmm...
    
           *** Select Feena.
    
           Feena
           So Justin, you want to go to Domu, right? Do you intend to find
           some more information about Enjule there?
    
           Justin
           Didn't I tell you? We just want to go to Alent. We should find
           something at Domu to point us in the right direction, nothing
           more.
    
           Feena
           ...Al.. ent? I've never heard of a place named that...
    
           Justin
           I hadn't either... It might be a city of the Enjule civilization.
           Whatever it is, it must surely an incredible place.
    
           Feena
           But past Domu Ruins there's just a giant misty forest... and
           after that, the edge of the world...
    
           Justin
           Right, but... it's got to be somewhere... I'm sure we'll know
           where to go after visiting Domu! We'll make it even if we have to
           go to the World's End!
    
           Feena
           Justin!? Noone has ever returned from the Forest of Mist! And the
           idea of going to the World's End...
    
           Justin
           Feena... you still don't understand! "Impossible" isn't part of
           an adventurer's vocabulary! And if it can be done, we'll do it!
    
           Feena
           Justin... I trust you. Yes, we can do it!
    
           *** Select yourself.
    
           THE NEXT DAY
    
           Justin
           Yaaawn. Boy, I slept well last night!
    
           Sue
           Yeah, it was so nice and cool!
    
           Feena
           Morning, you two! Nice morning, isn't it?
    
           Sue
           Wow! Feena, you always get up so early!
    
           Feena
           Hmm.. Well unless you can get up a little earlier, you're not
           full-fledged adventurers!
    
           Justin
           A-ha, ha, ha. Quit it, Feena. That's the same thing you said when
           we met you after you swabbed the deck.
    
           Feena
           A-ha, ha. I can see you're a little touchy today! Anyway, the sky
           has really cleared up this morning. You can see so far out in the
           distance. Oh! Look! There's the Forest of Mist and over there,
           the World's End.
    
           Sue
           Ooh! It's huge! That's all the Forest of Mist?
    
           Justin
           Feena... I see the Forest of Mist, but where's the World's End?
    
           Feena
           You're not looking in the right place, Justin. Look higher up.
    
           Justin
           Whoaaa!! That gigantic wall is the World's End?!
    
           Feena
           Yep, that's the World's End. The world ends beyond that wall.
    
           Justin
           Hmm... But, still, there's no way I can be sure until I go there
           and look over the edge for myself! I want to verify it with my
           own eyes! Damn! I'm burning up with excitement! I've got a
           feeling that Alent is just waiting for us out in the distance
           somewhere!
    
           Feena
           He, he. You're the first person I've known to start burning with
           excitement after looking at some scenery! Well, let's get going.
           After we cross the rest of this mountain range, we'll be very
           close to Domu.
    
           Justin
           Alright, let's go! We arrive in Domu Ruins today!
    
           *** Travel through the rest of the mountains to Domu and enter ruined
           area.
    
           DOMU RUINS
    
           Feena
           These are the Domu Ruins, Justin. When I came here before, the
           ruins were so packed with Garlysle soldiers that I couldn't get
           inside the ruins. So this is going to be the first time I've
           entered this place. I don't know what to expect from here on so
           be careful, you two.
    
           Justin
           Alright, alright! Now let's go!
    
           Travel through the ruins until you reach a ledge portruding over
           the clouds.
    
           Justin
           Wow! Look at this! You can't see the ground at all from here!
           Incredible...
    
           *** Move through the ruins and defeat the boss. After moving through
           the room the boss was guarding...
    
           Feena
           I wonder this is?
    
           Sue
           Justin, we've seen this thing somewhere before, right?
    
           Justin
           This is... Oh yeah! This is the same thing we saw at the Saruto
           Ruins!
    
           Feena
           And you said you met someone named Riethe at Saruto, right?
    
           Justin
           Yeah, and I know this thing was nearby when we met her. Therefore
           if I... Let's see here...
    
           Feena
           Justin!? What, what are you doing...!
    
           Riethe
           Welcome, Justin, follower under the spirits' blessing.
    
           Justin
           I'm already here, Riethe! Now how about Alent? Where's Alent
           hiding?
    
           *FMV TRANSLATION PENDING*
    
           Riethe
           This world does not have an edge... There may be a way you can
           verify that...
    
           Justin
           Alright... This adventure isn't over yet... It's obvious we can't
           grope our way into Alent now, but now we know the world doesn't
           end! You two heard that, right? That means there's something
           beyond the World's End! The adventure can continue!
    
           Sue
           But Justin... that wall was so high... Do really think we get by
           it? And that's not all... The Forest of Mist is ahead of us, and
           noone's ever returned from traveling through there...
    
           Justin
           What? That doesn't matter! Don't you think? I'm an adventurer!
           There's nowhere I can't go!! There's no place of no return!! If
           noone's gone there or returned from there, then I'll be the first
           person on Earth to make it! I'm sure Alent is over there too!
           Let's go, Feena, Sue!! First we cross the Forest of Mist! Then we
           make it to the other side of the World's End!
    
           *** Return to the entrance of the ruin.
    
           Feena
           Ok, I know you want go beyond the World's End. But just how do
           you intend do it?
    
           Justin
           It's alright! Don't worry, I'm sure we'll find away.
    
           Sue
           Juustiiin!? You're not thinking again, are you? You can't do
           anything without our help.
    
           Feena
           Aha, ha, ha, that's Justin alright. Why don't we return to New
           Parm before we go? We'll probably need provisions for the
           journey.
    
           Sue
           That's what I expected! Feena, on the other hand, has thought up
           a great idea~!
    
           *** Leave the ruin.
    
           Feena
           Wait, Justin! Hey, look over there! There's someone on the
           ground!
    
           Creature
           %...
    
           Justin
           It's a child! He's passed out...
    
           Feena
           He's bleeding...! This is terrible!! It's a horrible wound!
    
           Sue
           Hey, Feena... This kid has a horn and a tail... Oh look! He's
           opening his eyes!
    
           Creature
           ... %**...
    
           Feena
           Great...! It looks like he's conscious now.
    
           Justin
           It's... not an animal. It seems like a human.
    
           Creature

           Justin
           Huh?
    
           Feena and Sue
           Ahhh! Justin!
    
           Justin
           Owwww! He's biting me! He's biting me! W-w-what is the heck is
           this thing!?
    
           Creature
           %...
    
           Feena
           It looks like he's become unconscious again... Well, we've got to
           find a way to treat his wounds! Justin, help me! Let's transport
           him back to my house. Hurry!
    
           Justin
           Oh, oh, I see! Leave it to me!
    
           *** They leave.
    
           Saki
           Look! He's been here!
    
           Nana
           Alright, company, halt! Sub-human Pursuit Squad, stop right here!
    
           Mio
           This is strange. According to my calculations, he should not be
           able to flee this area with a wound that severe.
    
           Nana
           I'm so thoughtless. Sometimes during guard duty I get bored and
           go off to buy make-up.
    
           Mio
           Don't worry, even if you're fired, our friendship will be
           eternal.
    
           Saki
           Quit it you two! Ugh, I hate the smell of this animal! If I
           didn't have perfume on, I just couldn't take it!
    
           Nana
           What should we do, Mio? This is the precious sub-human we nearly
           captured! We absolutely must find him!
    
           Mio
           Yes, let's see... That's it! Let's use the military dogs. If this
           goes according to my plan, we should have a wonderful result!
    
           Mio
           Good thinking, Mio! It takes a beast to catch a beast. Let's
           return to the base and make preparations.
    
           Nana
           Alright, Sub-human Pursuit Squad, about face! We're going back to
           the base on the front line!

           Creature
           @@@... %%%...
    
           Feena
           This is bad... I tried treating him using my usual method, but it
           seems he still has a fever.
    
           Justin
           Well? Does it look you can save him or not?
    
           Feena
           It's no good... You see, when the wound becomes infected and this
           type of fever is contracted... Well, there's nothing I can do.
    
           Sue
           Are you sure there's no way? Well, Feena?
    
           Feena
           In order to stop the infection I'll need a type of herb called a
           Sarfa Weed. But at this time of year....
    
           Justin
           Don't say it. Let's try looking for one anyway. We might get
           lucky and find one, right?
    
           Feena
           That's right... Then let's go! The herb grows pretty well on the
           mountain behind my house.
    
           *** Go outside.
    
           Justin
           Uhh.. where did you say the Sarfa Weed grows again?
    
           Feena
           It's on the rocky mountain behind my house. There's a fence in
           front of it. Come on!
    
           *** Go to the fence near Feena's house.
    
           Feena
           We can climb the mountain from here. Beyond this point there are
           lots of evil monsters, so this area was sealed up a long time
           ago. Wait a second. I'll unfasten the fence.
    
           Justin
           Just relax! I'll take of this fence with one shot of my
           wood-shattering kick!
    
           Feena
           N-no, Justin..!
    
           Justin
           Yaaa!
    
           It hurts.
    
           Justin
           Owww!
    
           Feena
           Justin, are you ok!? Don't be so reckless!
    
           Justin
           N-no sweat... It guess it did hurt just a tiny bit... Anyhow,
           let's hurry up and find some Sarfa Weed!
    
           *** If you find a white herb...
    
           Feena
           Justin, this is a white Sarfa Weed. We need a red one.
    
           *** If you find a red one...
    
           Feena
           This is it! This is a red Sarfa Weed! I thought they would have
           all withered away by now... Great! Now we can save that child!
    
           *** You receive a Sarfa Weed.
    
           *** Return to Feena's house.
    
           Feena
           It looks like his fever has gone down... That's the first
           improvement he's made. I think he's going to make it..
    
           Justin
           Well, I didn't know how this was going to turn out, but boy am I
           relieved now! But anyway.. what's with this kid? He's growing a
           tail or something.
    
           Feena
           Hmm.. From the direction he was lying when we found him on the
           ground, it looked like he had came from the Forest of Mist.
    
           Justin
           Maybe... I wonder if this kid is somehow connected to Enjule...?!
           That's got to be it! Since he's growing horns and a tail! This is
           terrific, Feena! This kid might be a Koyokujin or something...
    
           Feena
           Shh! Don't talk so loud. You might wake him up!
    
           Justin
           Sorry Feena. I just got so excited all of the sudden... Ha, ha,
           ha..
    
           Feena
           Oh Justin! I have no idea whether this child is somehow connected
           to Enjule or not, but I'm sure he'll tell us all about when he
           wakes up. He's still going to be wounded when he awakes so we'll
           have to guide him back to where he lives.
    
           Justin
           Right! He's a mysterious guy, but I'm sure it will all become
           clear when we have a talk with him.
    
           Feena
           Then... Justin, please get some sleep. I'll look after him.
    
           Justin
           You should get to bed soon too. It's been a pretty tiring day.
    
           Feena
           Ok. Good night, Justin.
    
           THAT NIGHT
    
           Sue
           I wonder what that is... That mysterious music... Hey, wake up,
           Justin.
    
           Justin
           Feena... she fell asleep like that.
    
           Sue
           Wha?! Feena, Justin!! The kid is gone!!
    
           Feena
           Uh..? W-where did he go off to..!? I didn't think he would have
           already recovered by now... Hmm..? A flute..? Where's that music
           coming from?
    
           Sue
           It sounds like it's coming from outside. Let's go, Justin!
    
           *** Go outside.
    
           Sue
           Oh, over there!

           Justin
           Maybe this kid isn't human after all. He has such a strange
           voice.
    
           Feena
           But he seems like he's trying to tell us something. Maybe... he's
           just speaking in another language?
    
           Justin
           Another language...? I didn't think there were any other
           languages..
    
           Feena
           Hey, little boy, who are you? Where did you come from?

           #$%#$%^%!!
    
           Justin
           What's this? He's giving us a nut? What does he want us to do
           with it?
    
           Sue
           Maybe he wants to thank us? He probably wants us to eat it.
    
           Feena
           I've never seen a nut like this before. Try eating it, Justin.
    
           They're surrounded.
    
           Saki
           We've finally found you! I'll never be able to forget the stench

           What are you doing here!?
    
           Nana
           The Garlysle Army demands you hand over the sub-human!
    
           Justin
           Sub-human? ... So he's a sub-human, huh? I thought he was human..
    
           Mio
           Hey... we met you kids at Saruto, didn't we? What a strange place
           for us to see you again... You have no choice. If you don't want
           to get hurt, please hand over the child.
    
           Feena
           No! Why do you want this child anyway!?
    
           Justin
           We just rescued this kid! Now why should we just blindly hand him
           over to you!?
    
           Sue
           Yeah, yeah! That's tyrannical!
    
           Nana
           Ahhhhh! They're all talking at once! It's just too much! I don't
           care whether it's tyrannical or not! The sub-human is an
           essential part of the army's secret project. If you don't hand
           him over right now, we'll kill you all!!
    
           Justin
           An important part!? The army has a secret project...!?
    
           Saki
           Hey! What are you doing blurting out that classified
           information!? Think before you speak!
    
           Nana
           N-now we have no choice! The only we can do is take them back to
           the base!
    
           Mio
           Then I guess you'll have to come along with us back to the
           base...
    
           Justin
           A-are you kidding!? Do you think we're going to just let you take
           us away!?
    
           Mio
           From now on, you are not allowed to disobey us. If you do, you'll
           be forced to do hard labor until you die. Alright soldiers! Take
           this group back to our base on the front line!

           Listen, something's wrong with Sue! Come on!
    
           Guard
           Stop shouting! What's the matter!?
    
           Justin
           Sue, Sue's... it's terrible!
    
           Sue
           WAAAAH! MY TUMMY HUUURRRTS!!
    
           Justin
           Hey! Hurry up, hurry up! Get her to a doctor!
    
           Guard
           Dang, I guess I have no choice. What a brat. Just wait a second,
           I'm opening the door...
    
           *** Justin hits the guard.
    
           Guard
           *Mmmph!*
    
           Sue
           That worked pretty well, Justin!
    
           Justin
           Ah, ha! Our plans are fool-proof! Now, we've got to rescue Feena
           and that kid, and get out of here!
    
           *** Go to the next room and talk to Feena.
    
           Feena
           Justin! You came for me!
    
           Justin
           Feena, hold still! I'm opening up this door! Mmm... Grrgrrgrr...!
           It's no use! The door won't open!
    
           Feena
           Justin, you're hopeless! You can't just open it up with your
           brute strength. You need a key!
    
           Sue
           Hey, hey, Justin, it looks like there's another room over here!
           There might be a key in there!
    
           Justin
           I guess so. Then let's have a look!
    
           *** Go in the next room, approach the gate.
    
           Justin
           No! This won't open either! Shoot! Now where's the key?
    
           *** Go in the next room.
    
           Soldier
           What's up? I see... the room with the sub-human specimen, huh...
           So you're in the middle of examing it now? We've got those 2
           kids. No, the guard duty is going smoothly, don't worry. Huh!?
           You!?
    
           Justin
           Yaa!
    
           Sue
           Way to go, Justin!
    
           Justin
           He, he, I had perfect form on that one!
    
           Sue
           Hey, Justin. I bet that sub-human specimen is that little kid.
    
           Justin
           Right, we'll have to rescue him after we free Feena!
    
           *** Select the key on the floor.
    
           Justin
           Alright, it's the prison key!
    
           *** You acquire the prison key.
    
           *** Leave.
    
           Justin
           Geez!!
    
           Sue
           Ahhh!
    
           *** Everything becomes black..
    
           Voices
           You little brat!
    
           *** Justin is taken back to the cell.
    
           Justin
           Crap, and we nearly got away... Damn! Get me out of here!! What
           do you plan to do with me!? Say something!!
    
           Guard
           Shut up! Just hang there quietly!
    
           Justin
           Look at me, you jerks! I'm going to get away! I warned you!
    
           *** Leen enters.
    
           Leen
           How's our prisoner here?
    
           Guard
           He's been shouting the whole time. He just won't behave.
    
           Leen
           I see... I'm going to have a talk with him. Let me through.
    
           *** Leen enters the cell.
    
           Leen
           ... I've spoken to you before. Your manner is foolish.
    
           Justin
           What are you talking about!? I remember, we were after each
           other's throats at Saruto too! Now untie these ropes! I want to
           see Feena!
    
           Leen
           Silence! I did not give you permission to talk freely! You've
           discovered too much of our secret project. About the ancient
           civilization and now the sub-human... No matter, the fate of you
           3 shall be decided within a week. You might be put to death.
    
           Justin
           So you want me to obediently hang around here and wait for you to
           give me the death penalty!? I'm going to escape, I tell you!
    
           Leen
           Shut up! I did not say you could speak!
    
           Justin
           Whoa, I can take it... Urp... On second thought, I think I should
           remember to be quiet...
    
           Leen
           .... Do you really think that we're going to allow you to escape
           from here? There's no way that you can get by all the soldiers
           alone. You're not leaving until the military train gets here.
    
           Justin
           Huhh... Mi-military train...?
    
           Leen
           There's nothing for you to do but wait for your sentence.. So
           behave until then.
    
           *** Leen leaves the cell.
    
           Leen
           Cmdr. Myuren will announce your new orders soon. Standby in the
           next room.
    
           Guard
           But Lieutenant Leen, is alright to leave this boy unguarded?
    
           Leen
           You may leave now. If this boy causes any more trouble, we'll
           just kill him.
    
           Guard
           Yes, ma'am! Excuse us as we take our leave!
    
           *** Guards leave.
    
           Leen
           I've been thinking. You still have a lot of time left before your
           fate is decided upon...
    
           Justin
           Bah... I'll have to remember that girl! After she slapped me in
           the face like that! Now then, what I'm I going to do... I've got
           to get out of these ropes somehow... Hey, seems like I can squirm
           out of these! Mmm... Somehow... Mmmmm.. Come on...
    
           *** Justin unties the ropes.
    
           Justin
           Yeah! Now.. I have to make it out of here this time!!
    
           *** Select the key on the floor.
    
           Justin
           ... Huh? Might this be... Alright!! It's the prison key!
    
           *** You acquire the prison key.
    
           Justin
           I guess Leen must of dropped this. Heh, heh, heh... what a
           foolish thing to do...
    
           Feena
           Justin! I'm glad you're safe!
    
           Justin
           Hold on, Feena! I'm opening this up! Ok! It's unlocked!
    
           Feena
           Thanks, Justin!
    
           Justin
           He, he, no sweat!
    
           Feena
           How did you break out of there so quickly? What sort of magic did
           you use?
    
           Justin
           Heh, heh, actually some soldier came to my cell and asked me a
           bunch of questions, and then she ended up dropping the key as she
           left. She's a real fool, you know. So, anyway, I used that key to
           escape.
    
           Feena
           Hmmm.. That's sort of hard to believe.. I guess we have that
           soldier to thank for our rescue!
    
           Sue
           Justin, before we leave, we should rescue that child!
    
           Justin
           Oh, of course!
    
           Feena
           Then let's start looking for him now before the soldiers start
           looking for us.
    
           Climb through an air duct behind the gate in the next room and
           keep going straight until you hear something.
    
           Voice
           ..@#$@#$ @#$# @#$@!! @##$%# ##$@!
    
           Justin
           Ah!? That voice...
    
           Creature
           #@#!? %$%#$@ $#$%#@ $#@@%.
    
           Myuren
           @#$# @#$%$@#? #@$%^#@.
    
           Creature
           @#$%#... @#$#@!?
    
           Myuren
           Hmm... it seems hopeless... He's too afraid...
    
           Leen
           ... How did it go, Cmdr. Myuren? Did you find out the location of
           the sub-human's village?
    
           Myuren
           No... He's frightened and will not cooperate. I should not expect
           that he will reveal the location of his village. He won't even
           tell me his name. I think Saki and her crew overdid it this time.
           It's their usual method, but we must make sure to warn them not
           to traumatize the speciemens from now on.
    
           Leen
           Myuren, sir... What do you intend to do with the sub-human child?
           We can't..
    
           Myuren
           Ha, ha... Leen, you're such a gentle soul. Are you that worried
           about it?
    
           Leen
           N-no.. It's not...
    
           Myuren
           Don't worry. I will not be harsh. This operation will only be
           significant if we are just in accomplishing it. Let's proceed
           with the plan we talked about earlier. You must be dilligent,
           Leen!
    
           Leen
           Yes, sir.
    
           Sue
           What did you see, Justin? Did you find that kid? I heard his
           voice!
    
           Justin
           Oh, he's right over here! And there was someone else, that guy we
           met at Saruto. I think he was called Myuren..
    
           Sue
           Really? That guy with the golden hair!?
    
           Feena
           I seem to recall you said that guy gave you some trouble.
    
           Justin
           So now the story is that he gave me some trouble!? We just had a
           rough brawl with him!! But.. somehow he could understand what
           that kid was saying. How does he do it?!
    
           Feena
           Let's just save that kid now. Ok then, let's go!
    
           *** Proceed through the next air vent.
    
           Sue
           Justin, over there!
    
           Select the buttons on the wall.
    
           Feena
           Looks like we have to push these buttons in the proper order to
           get the door to open.
    
           Justin
           These buttons should open this door. Hmm.. which one goes
           first...
    
           *** 3 Choices
           1) Push the "Up" button.
           2) Push the "Down" button.
           3) Push the "Left" button.
           4) Push the "Right" button.
    
           *** Push a button.
    
           Justin
           And then, and then, next should be...
    
           *** Push a button
    
           Justin
           Hmm, and the 3rd one is...
    
           *** Push a button.
    
           Justin
           This is the 4th. Umm, the 4th is...
    
           *** Push a button.
    
           Justin
           Ok, now we're at the 5th...
    
           *** Push a button.
    
           Justin
           Uhh, the 6th is... Umm, err...
    
           *** Push a button.
    
           Justin
           Stay calm... Stay calm... Stay calm, Justin. The 7th is...
    
           *** Push a button.
    
           Justin
           Is this... the last one? Mmm.. the 8th is...
    
           *** Push a button.
    
           Justin
           Shoot.... It looks like this isn't working..
    
           Sue
           Let's stop wasting our time here and start searching for the
           proper way to open this door, Justin!
    
           *** Travel through the ducts until you reach a colorful room.
    
           Justin
           What!? This is..!
    
           Saki
           Boy, the new world sure is hot! I'm sweating everywhere. My chest
           is sweating, look, I'm even sweating in my underwear.
    
           Mio
           That's strange. According to my calculations your chest wouldn't
           naturally be sweating...
    
           Nana
           Quit talking about the heat. It just makes me feel hotter!
           Anyhow, I wonder if Myuren is going to select me? I want to
           follow his every command...
    
           Saki
           Ahemmm! What do you think? I know Myuren is going give me high
           grade! I'm sure of it! By the way, the code to that beast's door
           is up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, correct?
    
           Nana
           It looks like your head is filled with sweat too! It's right,
           left, right, left, down, down, up, up! Nana, I see that tasks
           such as remembering a simple code are imm-poss-ee-bull for you!
    
           Mio
           You're both wrong. It's right, right, left, left, down, up, down,
           up. Try to remember this time.
    
           Saki
           So it's right, right, left, left, down, up, down, up... Alright!
           I have it memorized!!
    
           Nana
           Get it right this time! I don't want you blurting out, "Damnit!"
           in front of that stinky little beast!
    
           Saki
           I'm not going to fail such a simple task! And when I put the code
           in properly, I'll have a nice long, "I told you so" in front of
           your face! Uhh.. right, right, left, left, up down, up, down.
           Right, right, left, left, up, down, up, down...
    
           *** Go back to the door and put in Mio's code.
    
           Justin
           Allllright, it opened!! Just like they said!
    
           Feena
           You watched them dressing in the process of getting that code.

           Sue
           Hmm... It doesn't look poisonous... Justin, try eating one.
    
           Justin
           Ri-ridiculous! How can you say that!? Aren't we friends!? I
           thought you always wanted us to be together!? We can't be
           together if I'm dead from eating one of those!

           Aha, ha, ha, ha! Justin, don't you think overreacting just a bit?
           But you're right, let's eat them together. On the count of 3...

           Justin
           First we have to escape from here! Let's search for an exit!
    
           *** Attempt to leave.
    
           Saki
           Huh? How did you escape from your cell!? And you brought the
           sub-human with you?! Well, it's up to me to save the day! Get
           them! You will not escape with your life!
    
           *** After defeating Saki.
    
           *** You acquired the master key.
    
           Justin
           Hey! Look at this! I bet we can open all sorts of doors now!
    
           *** Upon trying to go up some stairs...
    
           Nana
           How did you escape! I see that idiot Saki must of fouled up
           again! But this where it ends, kiddies. My beautiful techniques
           will spill your blood!
    
           *** After the battle, go upstairs.
    
           Justin
           Wah! We're outside!
    
           Sue
           What should we do, Justin!?
    
           Feena
           Let's keep searching for an exit!
    
           *** Upon trying to go down the corridor with a saving point..
    
           Mio
           Aha, I thought I heard a noise coming from here. I see you're
           escaping. This is troubling. You were scheduled to be sent to
           receive the death penalty tomorrow... Well, I guess I'll have to
           change the schedule.
    
           *** After the battle, proceed downstairs.
    
           Justin
           Huh! This is... that military train that girl was talking about!
           We can escape on this train!
    
           Feena
           Justin, do you know how to drive one of these things?
    
           Justin
           Actually I've never driven one of these in my life, but we'll
           manage!
    
           *** Get in the train.
    
           Sue
           Justin, hurry, hurry! There are soldiers coming!
    
           Justin
           Ok, gotcha! This is it!
    
           IN THE GARLYSLE AIRSHIP
    
           Myuren
           I see... So you say the young sub-human escaped? Until now it was
           proceeding so smoothly..
    
           Leen
           Yes, Commmander. But...
    
           Myuren
           ... What, Leen?
    
           Leen
           N-no... it's nothing.
    
           Myuren
           Alright, Leen. Order Nana's party to begin pursuing the youths
           accordingly.. You, Leen, will watch their pursuit from the sky
           with me. Prepare the battleship, Grandeur, for departure.
    
           Leen
           Understood, Cmdr. Myuren. The preparations will be completed in
           15 minutes.
    
           ON THE TRAIN
    
           Feena
           Morning, Justin.
    
           Justin
           Oh, good morning, Feena!
    
           Feena
           It looks like we've finally gotten away from the military...
           You've been driving this thing all through the night, Justin. You
           must be tired. Why don't you let me drive for a while?
    
           Justin
           I'm fine, I'm fine! A world-class adventurer can't yield at a
           time like this! Anyway, how's Sue and Lem?
    
           Feena
           They're both sleeping soundly in the passenger car. He, he, they
           look so cute fast asleep.
    
           Justin
           Really? That's nice, but there are tons of things I want to ask
           Lem now!
    
           Feena
           I understand what you mean, but let's let them sleep a little
           longer. Yesterday was quite a strain.
    
           Justin
           Got it!.
    
           Feena
           I think the fire needs some more coal. I'll go get it.
    
           Justin
           No, I'll do it!
    
           Feena
           Then who's going to be driving the train?
    
           Justin
           Hey, hmm...
    
           Feena
           Aha, ha, ha! Ok, I'll handle the driving while you feed the fire.
    
           Justin
           Understood! Umm...
    
           Feena
           Just pull that lever over there.
    
           Justin
           Whoa!! What's happening!?
    
           Feena
           N-no, Justin! That's the brake! Pay attention, Justin!
    
           Justin
           Heh, heh, it was just a little joke!
    
           Feena
           Really~?
    
           Justin
           Really!
    
           Feena
           Aha, ha, ha, ha!
    
           LATER
    
           Feena
           How are you, Lem? Did you sleep well yesterday?
    
           Lem
           Nope, I couldn't sleep much. This is first time I've ever ridden
           on something like this! I was really excited!
    
           Justin
           This vehicle is called a train! There are lots of things like
           this from where we come from!
    
           Pui
           Puu! Puu!
    
           Sue
           But I can't imagine why boys are so crazy about vehicles like
           this. Justin always got on these things back home without
           permission and got into big trouble!
    
           Feena
           Aha, ha, ha, ha! That's our Justin!
    
           Justin
           Ha, ha, ha, I guess things like that did happen occasionally...
           Anyhow, Lem! I've got a mountain of questions for you!
    
           Lem
           I'll tell you anything I know! What do you want to ask me?
    
           *** 3 Choices
           1) Why were you on the ground in the Forest of Mist?
           2) Have you seen the World's End?
           3) Where do you live?
    
           *** Choose 1
    
           Lem
           I was just walking through the forest when suddenly this
           scary-looking lady started chasing after me..
    
           Justin
           That had to be one of those 3 pathetic women.
    
           Lem
           I ran as hard as I could, but I fell over something and hurt
           myself.
    
           Feena
           But why would the Garlysle Army do such a thing..? Could my
           sister be connected to it? Nah, I don't think so.
    
           *** Choose 2
    
           Lem
           The World's End..? Oh, you mean that big wall? Of course I've
           seen that! My mom said that people used to live on the other side
           of the wall a long, long time ago.
    
           Justin
           Really!? People on the other side!?
    
           *** Choose 3
    
           Lem
           My village is called Ruku. It's surrounded in reeeeally thick
           mist so noone goes in there! Actually noone ever leaves the
           village either, but.. I wanted to see the world!
    
           Justin
           Oh, Lem, I think you've got some potential as an adventurer! What
           say you, Feena?
    
           Feena
           That's right, certainly more than Justin... Aha, ha, ha! Kidding,
           kidding!
    
           Lem
           I know! Let's go to Ruku! I'm sure all the villagers will give us
           a big welcome!
    
           Justin
           Ruku..? Perhaps I can learn more about the World's End over
           there. Then let's head to Ruku! Lead the way, Lem! W-whoa! What's
           that!?
    
           Feena
           Eeeek!
    
           Justin
           What could that be? I'll have a look!
    
           *** Justin goes out.
    
           Justin
           Yaah! What's that, some sort of new military vehicle chasing
           after us!?
    
           Justin
           They're in pursuit! The army is chasing down the train!
    
           Sue
           Oh no! What should we do, Justin?!
    
           *** Leave the room. Walk up to the first soldier.
    
           Soldier
           I've found them! Just try and get by me!
    
           *** After the battle
    
           Soldier
           C-crap, they got me..
    
           *** Walk up to the next soldier.
    
           Soldier
           There's nowhere for you to run! Just come quietly!
    
           *** After the battle
    
           Soldier
           Damn... t-they.. got me...
    
           *** Go in the next room and approach the next soldier.
    
           Soldier
           Found you! Alright, Lighting Star Squad, CHAAARGE!!
    
           *** After the battle
    
           Soldier
           S-shit, they got me... I've failed Lieutenant Nana again..
    
           *** Walk up to the next soldier.
    
           Soldier
           The pride of the Bloody Rose Squad is at stake! You will not
           escape! Give yourselves up!
    
           *** After the battle
    
           Soldier
           I'm sorry, Lieutenant Saki...
    
           *** Go to the next soldier
    
           Soldier
           The Desert Moon Squad won't be so easy! Prepare yourselves!
    
           *** After the battle.
    
           Soldier
           And after I ended up being assigned to Lieutenant Mio's squad...
    
           Feena
           ... Excellent! The soldiers still haven't entered the engine
           room.
    
           Sue
           But I'm sure they'll be here soon! At this rate, they'll
           eventually capture us, Justin...
    
           Justin
           Mmm.. they're probably coming, and fast... Perhaps... the brake?.
    
           *** Select the brake.
    
           Justin
           ...Alright! Watch out! I'm pulling the brake lever.. Mmmmph!
           Mmmmph! Craaap, it's stuck! Ummmph! Urrrmph!
    
           Feena
           What should we do about it, Justin?
    
           Sue
           I can't believe we're going to lose because of a single stuck
           lever!
    
           Justin
           He, he, look here! Now before they get here...
    
           *** Fade out
    
           Nana
           Hurry up! Search the engine room up ahead and destroy them!
    
           Saki
           Ah! Are you stalling me, Nana!? Is that it!?!
    
           Mio
           Uh, if we're late in accomplishing this mission we're going to
           get 100 lashes.
    
           Saki
           Heh, heh, heh, how's that!? My squad got in here first! That puts
           each of us in our rightful place!
    
           Mio
           Wait just a second, Saki. Is this the right place for us to be?
    
           Saki
           What are you talking about, Mio? Just because your squad was
           late... Ahhh! Our objective is not here!
    
           Nana
           Well where are they!? What are you doing just standing there?!
           Start searching for them!
    
           Justin
           Heh, heh, we have you!
    
           Saki
           We finally meet again, Justin!! You may have defeated me at the
           base, but it's not going to happen again!!
    
           Mio
           That's right... When we team up, we're nearly 11 times as strong.
    
           Nana
           ...? That beast isn't with you. Where'd you hide him? I know you
           wouldn't try to escape without him...
    
           Saki
           We'll take care of that later, Nana. First we have to finish this
           brat off.
    
           Mio
           Let's do it. According to my calculations, this should be over in
           a minute.
    
           Justin
           Heh, heh, heh, that's right. This will be over in a minute!!
           Feena! Sue! Disconnect the car!
    
           Nana
           Does he think that he can get away so easily?!
    
           Mio
           It's probably just a childish attempt. We just need to pull the
           brake.
    
           Nana
           Where's the brake!?
    
           Justin
           I took the liberty of removing the brake lever!
    
           Sue
           Good thinking, Justin!
    
           Nana
           What do we do, now?!
    
           Mio
           There's no way to stop the train, we'll have to jump.
    
           Saki
           We can't jump at this speed!!
    
           Saki, Nana, and Mio
           Justin!!! We'll get you for this!
    
           *** The train stops.
    
           Feena
           Aha, ha, ha! Ah, we've made it! The faces that those 3 made are
           unforgetable!
    
           Justin
           Yeah, when they were trying in desperation to stop the train!
    
           Sue
           Aha, ha, ha! That was funny!
    
           Justin
           Anyway, Lem, is Ruku Village nearby?
    
           Lem
           Yeah, it's really close to here! Let's go!
    
           Sue
           This is incredible fog! It's as thick as milk!
    
           Feena
           I can't see anything ahead...
    
           Feena
           What should we do, Justin? Should we wait until the fog clears?
    
           Justin
           That might be the best thing to do. If we try to proceed we'll
           get lost in all the fog..
    
           Lem
           He, he, he... It's alright! If you've got a Ruku villager with
           you, you won't get lost! Look!!
    
           Justin
           Unbelievable! The fog cleared up!
    
           Lem
           He, he... Isn't it great? This flute lets everyone in the village
           know I'm coming, and in Ruku there are strange nuts called
           fog-lifting nuts, and they clear away all the fog. Now let's get
           going! My village is just up ahead! Hurry, hurry!
    
           Sue
           Oh! Wait up, Lem~!
    
           Feena
           He's already off... He seems very happy to be returning to his
           village.
    
           Justin
           Let's go! If we don't hurry he might leave us behind!

         ...Here is Ruku Village. I've Already told everyone in the village
         about you guys.
    
         Lem
         And when I did, the Village Elder said that he want to meet you guys
         to say thanks.
    
         Lem
         I'll wait by my house so go meet the Elder...got it? See ya!
    
         *** After Lem darts away, Justin and the others have a look around the
         village and engage in small talk with the villagers. Soon they reach
         the Village Elder's house and enter
    
         Village Elder
         I am the Elder of Ruku Village. I have heard that you rescued Lem.
         While I, as the Elder of this village, wish to present something as
         our sign of appreciation....
    
         Village Elder
         However I must beg of you to make the stay in this village as short as
         possible. We people are one such that wish one peace.
    
         Justin
         What are you trying to say? Are you trying to tell us to leave?
    
         Village Elder
         I, I wouldn't go that far.... However..... This is a bit....then...
    
         Justin
         Wasn't there anyone that came to this village besides us? Were they
         all chased out?
    
         Village Elder
         Well, thats not true. To dwell among us you must get the blessings of
         the God of Light.
    
         Justin
         Oh so thats it! How would we be able to get this blessing? Tell us
         Elder!
    
         Village Elder
         ....Then I shall tell you.... The god that protects this village, the'

         Bring back that bottle of wine that is in front of the mural.
    
         Village Elder
         Thats the procedure used in order for us to recognise those from the
         outside world as part of this village.
    
         Village Elder
         To tell you the truth, I do not wish to disturb the peace of this
         village but since you saved Lem, I really dont have a choice.
    
         *** After hearing this, Justin and the others set out for Koujin Mountain
         in order to get accepted as part of Ruku Village (after getting new
         Weapons armor and the like).

                 The Elder's Tale
    
    
           IN THE ELDER'S HUT
    
           Elder
           Mm.. so you truly have recovered the wine of the Light God..
           You've completed your task... I suppose I have no other choice
           now.. Let us partake of this wine together.
    
           Justin
           Huh?! Drink wine?!
    
           Elder
           If you drink this, the God of Light will recognize you as a
           member of this village.. Even if you don't really drink it, it
           will probably be alright if you just purse lips as if you were
           really drinking it.. You could also just leave..
    
           *** Talk to the elder again.
    
           Elder
           It will be alright for you to just purse your lips... Now what
           are you going to do?
    
           Justin
           Mmm... so it's alright if just pretend to drink it?
    
           Elder
           The God of Light will probably recognize you, but..
    
           *** Talk to the elder yet again.
    
           Elder
           Speak not of evil. Resolve yourself. Discard all unreasonable
           thoughts..
    
           Justin
           What, what're you talking about all of the sudden? This isn't
           related to what we were talking about before...
    
           Elder
           I heard the details from Lem. You want to cross the World's End,
           correct? In that case, you must travel throught the Forest of
           Mist..
    
           Feena
           That's right. And we need a fog-lifting nut to do that.
    
           Elder
           Mmm.. The fog-lifting nuts are rare in this village.. We are not
           quick to hand over such valuable objects to outsiders... Speak
           not of evil. Completely resolve yourself.
    
           Justin
           What the heck are you talking about, you miser!? Why do you keep
           spouting out, "resolve yourself", "resolve yourself"!?
    
           Elder
           What a rude child.. It is not miserliness, the fog-lifting nut
           grows deep within the Forest of Mist, and it is essential for our
           survival.. Our ancestors received one from the honorable
           Kouyokujin. It has been passed down for generations. It is our
           treasure.
    
           Feena
           The "honorable Kouyokujin" you say? The Kouyokujin from the
           Legend of Enjule..?
    
           Justin
           Elder, sir! You must know a legend about Enjule here too, right?!
           Tell me all about it, please!
    
           Elder
           Oh, ho! Well.. it's just a story.. It's been a long time..
           According the ancient saga of our village... A very looong time
           ago this world was enveloped in light. They say it was a splendid
           world. We were protected by the Kouyokujin, all was peaceful, and
           people neither grew old or sick they say. A time came, however,
           when one of our ancestors wanted to become a Kouyokujin. He stole
           one wing of the Kouyokujin.. The dead wing was useless in the
           end.. When our ancestor attempted to attach the wing to his back
           it transformed into darkness itself.. The darkness quickly
           covered our village. Plants withered, animals died, and we lost
           our beloved light! That's what happened! In order to prevent the
           darkness from spreading throughout the entire world, the
           Kouyokujin created a huge wall to stop its advance.
    
           Justin
           That must be the World's End..
    
           Elder
           Right, our ancestors were left on this side of the wall in their
           dark village, but the Kouyokujin threw them a mysterious seed
           from the other side that can extinguish darkness. In time, the
           darkness transformed into mist, and the seed, now known as the
           fog-lifting nut, allows us to move in and out of our village.
           Without the nut, not even the villagers of Ruku can move through
           the Forest of Mist.
    
           Justin
           Hmm... so it's a seed from the Kouyokujin? Ooh, now I really want
           one.. So what's the other side of the wall like now?
    
           *** Talk to the Elder again.
    
           Elder
           It is said that a blessed world lies on the other side. According
           to the ancient saga, when our body is destroyed, our spirit
           returns to the other side of the wall.
    
           Feena
           Hmm.. What a mysterious tale..
    
           Elder
           Do you truly intend to scale the wall? You must truly not speak
           of evil, renounce all evil intentions. None shall return alone.
           Now.. you must rest today. You should stay at Lem's house. Lem's
           parents have told me they wish to thank you.
    
           Sue
           I'm already beat! How about you, Justin?
    
           Justin
           Let's see.. Well, I guess we can take it easy today!
    
           *** Go to Lem's house and talk to Lem.
    
           Lem
           Hey, are you going to stay here today? Please do!
    
           Justin
           Oh, ok.
    
           Lem
           Yay! I'm saved!
    
           Justin
           You're saved?
    
           Lem
           Well, if I'm alone, I think my father is going to punish me..
    
           *** Talk to Lem's dad.
    
           Dad
           You were granted permission from the elder, I see! Well then,
           Justin and his friends are our honored guests! You can take it
           easy now. We're really indebted to you for saving Lem. Still..
           I'm going to have to punish him for breaking a law of the
           village.
    
           *** Talk to Lem's mom.
    
           Mom
           Are you done listening to the elder speak? It sounds as if
           traveling to the World's End is going to be an ordeal. Now as a
           reward for saving Lem, I'd like to offer you the chance to stay
           at our house for tonight, ok?
    
           *** 3 Choices
           1. Eat dinner and stay for the night.
           2. Don't stay for the night.
           3. %%%%Data Save%%%%
    
           *** Choose no. 1.
    
           Mom
           Ok, you'll eat dinner, and rest up for your journey. In
           celebration of Lem's safe return, I've prepared quite a feast.
    
           Lem
           Yay~~! Mom's food is really delicious!
    
           *** They have dinner.
    
           *** Select yourself.
    
           Feena
           My clothes got drenched in all that mist. I need to take a bath.
    
           Sue
           Ok, let's go in together, Feena (translator's note: this is
           common practice in Japan, and apparently this world too). No
           peeping, Justin!
    
           Feena
           Or perhaps Justin would like to come in with us?
    
           Justin
           Huh!! Wh, wh, wha!?
    
           Feena
           It's just a joke! You really are quick to believe things, Justin!
    
           *** Meanwhile, within the airship of the Garlysle Army...
    
           Soldier
           Commander, we've found it! It's to the northwest! We've confirmed
           it to be the sub-human village! Our squads have followed the
           sub-human child through the Forest of Mist and have discovered a
           clear path!
    
           Leen
           ... Just as you planned, Cmdr. Myuren.
    
           Myuren
           But our objective is merely to acquire a sample. Do not forget
           this. Our operation must be planed around this goal! Begin
           landing procedures! Make preparations immediately!
    
           Soldier
           Yes, sir! I will take my leave now, sir!
    
           Myuren
           I'm leaving you in command of this opearation, Leen.
    
           Leen
           Understood, Commander. Certainly... I'm certain I will acquire
           the final fragment!
    
           Myuren
           ...Can you feel the presence of the final piece?
    
           Leen
           Yes, sir!
    
           *** Back at Lem's house..
    
           Sue
           What on earth is that noise!? It sounds like a train or
           something...
    
           Justin
           No, it's too loud to be a train. What could it be!?
    
           Lem
           I saw it from the window! It's some huge black thing floating in
           the sky! And those guys that kidnapped me came out of it and
           started running toward the mountain!
    
           Justin and Feena
           The Garlysle Army!
    
           Justin
           But how did they find this place?
    
           Feena
           We should worry about that later, let's go!
    
           *** Leave Lem's house.
    
           Voice
           It's horrible, Elder! They're heading toward the mountain of the
           God of Light and they want the object we have enshrined there!
    
           Villagers
           What should we do, Elder? That venerated object protects Ruku,
           and if it's stolen this village will be destroyed! What should we
           do if they take it from us... At a time like we this, we need
           your wisdom, Elder!
    
           Elder
           First of all, calm down, all of you... Now, in order to protect
           the artifact there is nothing we can do but fight.. But we've
           been hidden away in this village our entire lives... We do not
           know of war.. We will probably all die.. Ah! But what else can we
           do...
    
           Justin
           Leave it to us, Elder! We'll drive the Garlysle Army away from
           here!
    
           Feena
           Wait, wait just a second, Justin!
    
           Sue
           Do you really think we can do that, Justin?
    
           Justin
           There's noone else in this village that can fight! We gotta do
           it...! And we are Lem's friend, right? Naturally one would want
           to save a friend's village!
    
           Feena and Sue
           He is our friend..
    
           Feena
           Right, since he's our friend, we have to do it.
    
           Sue
           Alright, let's kick those goons out of here!
    
           Elder
           Goodness! What reassuring children! You will truly save this
           village? I wish you luck. Please protect the Light God's
           artifact!

    *** With each step drawing them closer to the famed place known as "World's
    End", Justin, Feena, and Sue at last depart from Luku village. Before
    finally arriving at the World's End, however, the trio must first find
    their way through the Great Forest of Mist, a sea of trees so thick with
    fog as to make travel through it impossible without magical assistance...
    
         JUSTIN
         All right . . . I'm gonna give this kiriyoke nut a try . . .
    
    *** Justin hefts the magical seed in his palm, which sparkles briefly, then
    hurls the nut into the mist with a shout. The fog around them illuminates
    with a blinding flare, and when the three can see once again, the
    impenetrably thick blanket of fog has cleared, leaving only a thin mist
    behind.
    
         JUSTIN
         I did it! The fog lifted!
    
         SUE
         Amazing, Justin!
         But . . . I guess it was the kiriyoke nut that was amazing, not you
         exactly . . .
    
         JUSTIN
         Hey, hey . . . c'mon, Sue . . . you don't mean that, do you?
    
         FEENA
         Ahahahahaha! Well, let's go, you two!
    
    *** The group eventually reaches a small clearing, a place that seems rather
    more peaceful than the rest of the vast forest.
    
         FEENA
         It seems safe around this place. Let's camp here for the night.
    
    *** Camp
    
         FEENA (pick Justin)
         Hey Justin . . . There's still things I want to talk to you about. I'd
         like to continue for just a little longer . . .
    
         SUE (pick)
         Even though the fog's finally cleared, I still can't tell at all which
         way we need to go, you know . . .
         . . . and even though the World's End looked super close from the
         mountain, we've been walking forever and we still haven't got there!
    
         JUSTIN
         We've come pretty far, yeah . . . but just a little farther, Sue.
         Let's do our best, okay?
    
         FEENA (pick)
         I still can't believe we're adventuring in the Great Forest of Mist
         and searching for the World's End!
         This is really an adventure, isn't it? It never felt this way working
         at the Adventurer's Association.
         I wonder how far apart this is from New Parm? We can't see the lights
         from Luku village anymore, either . . .
    
         JUSTIN (pick Sue)
         Didn't the World's End look awesome from back on top of Koujin
         Mountain? It's gonna look even more awesome close up!
    
         SUE
         Our adventure is already turning out to be different from what we
         thought. I got you, Justin . . . I'll try a little harder.
    
         JUSTIN (pick Feena)
         But it was a surprise . . . that Feena's sister -- I mean, Leen -- was
         that woman in the army.
    
         FEENA
         . . .
         I never thought I would meet my sister again like that. To think, that
         my gentle sister . . .
         And besides that . . . she said she was searching for Spirit Stones.
         What on earth could she be doing?
    
         SUE
         C'mon, Feena, cheer up! I'm sure there's gotta be a reason, certainly!
    
         JUSTIN
         That's right! Leen doesn't seem like a bad person. The guys giving the
         orders have definitely gotta be the ones who're bad!!
    
         SUE (pick)
         Yeah, and wasn't Leen that soldier who dropped the key, too? She did
         that on purpose, didn't she?
    
         JUSTIN
         Hmmm . . . I never thought of that before, but when you say that, it
         makes sense . . . or maybe not . . .
    
         SUE
         It's gotta be true. I mean, she's Feena's sister. She can't be a bad
         person, can she?
    
         FEENA (pick)
         . . .
    
         JUSTIN & SUE
         Feena!?
    
         FEENA
         I'm sorry . . . you're worried about me. I guess this isn't like me,
         huh Justin?
    
         JUSTIN
         Yeah! I like you best when you're smiling, you know!
    
         FEENA
         Ahahaha . . . Justin, that's just like you! Well, let's go to sleep.
         You're tired, aren't you, you two?
    
         SUE (pick)
         I'm glad Feena's happy again. It'd be no fun if everyone starts
         feeling blue after we've just began this adventure. Let's try our best
         again, okay?
    
         FEENA (pick)
         Well, let's prepare for tomorrow, and sleep tonight.
    
         FEENA (pick Justin)
         Good night, Justin, Sue . . . Good night, Leen . . .
    
    *** The following morning, Justin, Feena and Sue set out on their journey
    again. The three continue on through the forest, and eventually reach a
    section of the river where the water has overflowed the banks, creating a
    placid pool of water that spreads across a wide part of the forest.
    
         FEENA
         A lake . . . I wonder if this a dead end?
    
         SUE
         Look, Justin! The river's running through the middle of the lake!?
    
         JUSTIN
         What the heck!?
    
    *** Strangely enough, the party is able to walk upon the water as if it is
    nonexistant, and come to a rock which allows them to cross the river.
    
         JUSTIN
         Well, look at that! This lake's a mirage!
    
    *** After crossing the river, the group travels on through the seemingly
    endless forest until suddenly, the forest opens up a bit, and then . . .
    
         FEENA
         W-Wait a minute, Justin! Look at that!!
    
    *** Feena races up onto a rocky mound, pointing at something excitedly. Justin
    and Sue hurry after her, reaching the top of the mound. They all look in
    the direction that Feena is pointing, and see a massive wall stretching
    either way out of sight. The three naturally turn their gazes upward,
    looking for the top of the wall . . . and realize that it is obscured by
    the clouds far above. At long last, Justin, Feena, and Sue have reached the
    place they have only dreamed about prior to this moment: the World's End.
    
         JUSTIN
         We made it, finally! The World's End!!
         I always said that we'd definitely make it, no matter what!!
    
         FEENA
         Yep, it was just as you said, Justin. But can we really climb it, I
         wonder . . . ?
    
         SUE
         Really, really! This wall's sooo high!!
         I can't see the top at all.
    
         JUSTIN
         What are you talking about! We've come all this way and yet I hear you
         saying that it's impossible?
    
         JUSTIN
         Of course we can climb it!
         And besides . . . to adventurers, there's nothing that can't be done!!
    
         SUE
         Oh, Justin . . . it's always the same with you . .
    
         FEENA
         But . . . he's right, you know?
    
         If we all work together, we'll manage to make it somehow!
    
         FEENA
         Yes, let's go. Hey, doesn't it look climbable over there?
    
    *** And so the group sets out to begin climbing the mammoth structure that is
    World's End. The hundereds of structures jutting out from the wall and the
    myriad of passages running through it offer the adventurers a way to climb
    the towering barrier, but not without difficulty. The wall is littered with
    dangerous traps, and moving architecture sometimes offers the only way to
    proceed higher. Some of the mechanisms must be triggered by switches and
    the like as well, so the journey is not easy. However, the party seems to
    make good progress, and they eventually arrive at a ledge that is wider
    than the many others they have already seen.
    
         FEENA
         Whew, we've come pretty far, haven't we?
         It seems safe here, so shall we rest for a little bit?
    
    *** Camp
    
         FEENA (pick Justin)
         Justin? You want to go to sleep early? Stay awake for a just a little
         longer!
    
         SUE (pick)
         I'm so proud that we're actually up here on World's End. I mean, it's
         so tall!
         We can see from as high as the birds do, you know! I was so surprised.
    
         JUSTIN
         But no matter how tall you say it is, there's definitely got to be a
         top.
         We should be able to reach it, no matter what!
    
         SUE
         You're starting that again . . . I think it's not gonna be as simple
         as you seem to think the world is, Justin!
    
         JUSTIN (pick Sue)
         This wall is really tall, but there's definitely got to be a top.
         We should be able to reach it, no matter what!
    
         SUE
         I think it's not gonna be as easy as you think, Justin . . . but I'm
         here with you, so it's gonna be okay.
    
         SUE (pick)
         Since we're all together, we'll definitely make it over this wall,
         won't we!
    
         FEENA (pick)
         Look, Justin . . . we can see really far from here.
         I wonder if that place is Luku village?
         I still can't believe it . . . that we're climbing the World's End!
         And we've come all the way to this high place . . .
    
         JUSTIN
         Heh, you can't believe it either, huh?
         Jin and Gantsu and all the others would certainly never believe it,
         either . . .
    
         FEENA
         What! The adventurer Jin!?
         Are you guys his pupils!?
    
         JUSTIN
         Well, not his pupils exactly, but . . . Huh? Feena, you know Jin?
    
         JUSTIN (pick)
         Well, Feena? How do you know Jin?
    
         FEENA
         Whether I know him or not, he's still the discoverer Jin of the
         Plains!
         Well, I hear he's retired from active service now, but . . . he's a
         great person.
    
         SUE
         That's no good, Feena! You'd make Jin mad if you said that kind of
         thing.
         "Wha...? Come on! I'm not some crusty old retiree!" he'd say.
    
         SUE (pick Justin)
         Man, Justin, that's just like you. It's just getting fun, and you
         wanna go to sleep already!?
         C'mon, let's talk a little more. It'll be fun!
    
         FEENA (pick)
         I think tomorrow's probably going to be hard, too, but let's all do
         our best, okay?
    
         SUE (pick)
         Since we're all together, we'll definitely make it over this wall,
         won't we!
    
         FEENA & SUE
         Good niiight!
    
    *** On the following day, the group continues on. Before long, the party begins
    to reach the first layer of clouds, and the sunlight dims visibly. Giant
    guardians of rock patrol the wall here, looking to keep the three heroes
    from traveling farther, only to crumble away into rubble, or be struck down
    from the wall by massive blocks of stone tumbling away away from the
    massive barrier. Flying stone monsters and bats perch upon the wall at
    these heights too, sometimes protecting the mechanisms that allow landbound
    creatures to climb higher. Justin and his friends manage to brave the day's
    peril, however, and soon reach another spot that looks promising for a
    resting place.
    
         SUE
         Hey Justin, let's camp here for today.
    
    *** Camp
    
         FEENA (pick Justin)
         You're still fine, Justin, aren't you? Let's discuss our plans for
         tomorrow on a little more.
    
         SUE
         Climbing this wall . . . is starting to get boring. I mean, all we see
         is the saaame scenery.
    
         POOY
         Puppu punpupun!
    
         JUSTIN
         What are you saying, Sue? Didn't Jin tell us? Keep your eyes on the
         trial ahead of you and you'll get everything you hope for. I mean,
         that's the way of adventurers!
    
         FEENA (pick)
         I understand how Sue feels too, though. We keep going and going, yet
         see only this wall. I wonder if there really is a top as they say?
    
         JUSTIN
         Feena, now look what you're saying too! We're adventurers, right?
         Adventurers keep going until the end, and they never give up!
    
         FEENA
         . . .
         Yes . . . Yes, you're right. Adventurers never give up.
         You know . . . Justin, you've taught me something again.
    
         SUE (pick)
         No matter what you say, boring is still boring!
    
         POOY
         Pupunpupun pupuun!
    
         FEENA (pick)
         Well, there's no such thing as a mountain without a summit. There
         surely must be a top, you know?
    
         JUSTIN (pick)
         I didn't mind the climb at all. We should finally be getting close to
         reaching the top!
    
    *** Seeming somewhat daunted by the climb, but nevertheless in better spirits
    after resting, Justin and company depart the campsite. The wall's guardians
    grow even more fierce, and the traps more insidious as the party ascends
    through the dark layer of clouds into sunlight. A giant, complex mechanism,
    guarded by more of the enormous stone flyers, lifts the party onto a wide
    open plateau of stone blocks. The sun once again retreats from view at this
    time of day, leaving a dreary atmosphere behind as its light is blocked by
    the gigantic wall. Exhausted from the day's ordeals and tiring of the
    apparantly endless climb that is World's End, Justin, Feena, and Sue
    finally trudge to a halt as they reach the top of the stairs to another
    stone shelf.
    
         FEENA
         Let's camp here for today.
    
    *** Camp
    
         FEENA (pick Justin)
         Wait a minute, Justin. We're not finished talking yet. Could you
         please stay awake just a little longer?
    
         SUE
         . . . I'm going home already! We climb and climb, but we're never
         gonna reach the top!
    
         POOY
         Pu! Pu!
    
         FEENA
         What's wrong, Justin? Oh, I guess you're tired, hm?
    
         JUSTIN
         Well, you said it. I don't know . . . I wonder this wall really does
         have a top . . .
    
         FEENA
         Wh-What's happened to you, Justin? It's not like you to suddenly say
         something like that, is it?
    
         JUSTIN
         Well, but this is totally different than we thought! When are we gonna
         decide that we're not gonna make it, huh?
    
         FEENA
         That . . . that's . . .
    
         SUE (pick)
         Ju-Justiin, Feenaa.  Please stop fighting.
    
         POOY
         Pupupupuu~
    
         JUSTIN (pick)
         Aww, who the hell ever said we had to climb this wall in the first
         place?
         Let's go home already. We did our best. It was enough to climb this
         far, right?
    
         FEENA
         Have you forgotten, Justin? Adventurers never give up. Didn't you say
         that?
         . . . Or was that just a lie?
    
         JUSTIN
         It wasn't a lie!! It wasn't a lie, I'm telling you . . . But . . .
    
         FEENA (pick)
         If I . . . If I had never met Justin, I don't think I would have ever
         come to this kind of place.
         I mean, I'm forgetting. The one who helped me to remember fun, and the
         true meaning of adventure . . . that was you, Justin.
    
         JUSTIN
         Feena . . .
         . . . Yeah, yeah, you're right! We're adventurers, aren't we!!
    
         SUE
         . . . Uh-huh! If the three of us work together, we'll make it over
         this wall, definitely!
    
         JUSTIN
         All right! We're gonna do it! Wait for us, Riethe! We will absolutely
         make it to Alent!!
    
         SUE (pick)
         That's right! We're adventurers, you know. We have to do our best
         tomorrow too!!
    
         POOY
         Pupu! Pupuu!
    
         FEENA (pick Justin)
         Look Justin, Sue!! Look at the beautiful starry sky!
    
         SUE
         Wowww, really! It's wonderful . . .
    
         FEENA
         The top is almost certainly close, I believe. Let's work hard,
         together!
    
    *** The next morning, the three are awakened by a sight that seems impossible .
    . . and yet, it is undeniable. Despite the sun's position in the sky,
    despite the fact that its light should be blocked from view by the wall at
    this time of day, slender rays of light are shining down from close above
    the group's heads.
    
         JUSTIN
         . . . Huh!? The rising sun is shining down! Even though until now, it
         was blocked by the wall, and you couldn't see the sun until after noon
         . . .
    
         FEENA
         . . . and that means that . . . !!
    
         SUE
         That's right! It's gotta be!!
    
         JUSTIN
         Okay! Let's go see!!
    
         (If you try to walk back down the stairs here, Feena says the
         following:)
    
         FEENA
         Come on, let's go! Together, we will cross the World's End!
    
    *** Justin, Feena, and Sue race up the stairs toward the bright sunlight, and...
    
         JUSTIN
         . . . !!
    
         FEENA
         I guess . . . that there is no World's End after all . . .
         . . . Look! The sunrise . . . !!
    
         SUE
         It's wonderful . . . It's as if the world were burning with a golden
         fire . . .! Right Justin?
    
         JUSTIN
         . . . Ohh . . .
    
    *** The three watch in awe for a long time as the sun lifts above the horizon,
    bathing everything in view in a beautiful golden light. After an
    indeterminable period of time, they at last turn their gazes to an
    odd-looking machine moving atop the center of the wall.
    
         SUE
         Hey, what is that, I wonder?
    
         JUSTIN
         (Gulp) What the heck!? That thing's moving!?
    
    *** Sue scurries past the strange machine to the edge of the wall to get a
    better look at the other side.
    
         SUE
         Well, we got to the top, but how are we supposed to get down the other
         side?
    
         FEENA
         Hmmm . . . we want to go down, but it doesn't seem like there's
         anything we can use to do that, does there? It looks impossible to
         climb down . . .
    
         JUSTIN
         Hey, can you hear that strange sound?
    
         FEENA
         Justin! Look!!
    
         JUSTIN
         Aaahh!!
    
    *** Justin and Feena gawk in surprise as a strange, flying machine suddenly
    zips out into the open and grabs Sue with a mechanical claw!
    
         SUE
         Eeek! What are you doing!?
    
         JUSTIN
         Wh-Wha . . . Sue!! Crap!! What are you doing to Sue!!
    
    *** The machine, spinning and wobbling erratically, seems to gain control of
    itself for a brief moment, and then, without warning, drops Sue off the
    wall into the abyss below!
    
         SUE
         Justiiiin!!
    
         JUSTIN
         Waaahhh! Suuuuuue!!!!
    
         FEENA
         Eeeeeek!!!!
    
         JUSTIN
         Sue! Sue!! Damn it, I can't see her anymore . . . !
    
         FEENA
         Eek, Justin!?
    
    *** Two more flying machines suddenly zoom toward Feena and Justin, each one
    grappling its prey with mechanical claws before the two heroes can react!
    
         FEENA
         W-Wait a minute! Where do you think you're touching me!? Stop it! Stop
         it, I said!!
    
         JUSTIN
         Wh-What the hell are you doing! Let us go! I said, let us go!!
    
    *** The pair of machines obediently fly out over the clouds that obscure the
    ground that lies far below on the other side of the wall, and hover in
    place for a moment, steadying positions.
    
         JUSTIN
         Ahhh, no wait!! I take that back! Don't let us go!
         Heeeyyy, Feenaaa! What're we gonna do!
    
         FEENA
         What're you asking me for!? Please, do something, Justiiin!
         Eeeeeeeeeeeek!!
    
    *** The mechanical claws release Justin and Feena, who plummet into the depths
    below...
    
         JUSTIN
         Feenaaaaaaa!
    
         FEENA
         Justiiiiiin!!

    to swim into focus . . .

         Justin!!
         Justin, are you all right? Do you feel funny anywhere?
    
         JUSTIN
         . . . What's going on, Feena? I feel like I've slept for a long time,
         but . . .
    
         FEENA
         Justin!!
    
    *** Feena smothers Justin joyfully.
    
         JUSTIN
         Waaah!?
         Wha-What's wrong, Feena? I can't . . . breathe . . . !
    
         FEENA
         Ahahaha, I'm so glad!! If you had died just like that, Justin, I don't
         know what I would have done!
    
         JUSTIN
         Oh, that's right, we . . . We were tossed off of the top of World's
         End!!
         Feena, are you okay!?
    
         FEENA
         Uh-huh! I'm fine! My eyes are still going round and round a little,
         but . . . I wonder how we were saved?
         Luckily, we landed on top of this leaf . . . could that be it . . . ?
    
         JUSTIN
         Whoooah . . . so this is a leaf. It's incredible . . . it's so huge!
         Where on earth is this place . . .
    
         FEENA
         Justin, look over there . . .
    
    *** Justin and Feena turn to look at the giant wall that now lies behind them.
    
         JUSTIN
         We really . . . made it over the World's End, didn't we!! Awesome . .
         .
         I mean, this is an awesome place, isn't it? This is truly starting to
         feel like an adventure, you know -- huh? Wait a minute . . .
         That's right! Sue!? What happened to Sue!?
    
         FEENA
         I haven't found her yet. We separated during the fall, so . . .
         But surely Sue should be close by. We've got to search for her
         quickly!
    
         JUSTIN
         A-All right! At any rate, we'll find her! Let's go, Feena!!
    
    *** And so, Justin and Feena head off into this strange new world, in search of
    Sue. This place is literally alive, as plants of all kinds grow everywhere.
    Giant flowers and ferns are commonplace here, as are man-eating plants and
    greenery that moves at will. Savage hybrids of plant and animal look to
    make to a meal of the two adventurers, and barbaric devil-men accost the
    heroes at every turn. Justin & Feena press on, however, and before long
    reach a river cutting through the rocky valleys that crisscross along the
    otherwise green bottom of the Hiryuu Valley. As they wind their way through
    one of the tighter paths separated by the rock walls and overgrown plant
    creatures, Justin spots something on the path that seems quite out of order
    in this place so abundant with life . . .
    
         JUSTIN
         Huh . . . ? A lost shoe . . .
    
    *** A feeling of dread suddenly comes over the pair of heroes, and they rush to
    pick up the all-too-familiar small red shoe.
    
         JUSTIN
         (Gulp) Th-This . . . This can't be Sue's shoe!!
    
    *** Picked up Sue's shoe!!
    
    *** Justin & Feena continue on, fearing the worst, yet neither one of them
    daring to say another word. Hostile creatures run rampant here, stalking
    the adventurers impartially. Suddenly, out of the myriad of mysterious
    jungle noises comes a welcome, familiar cry . . .
    
         POOY
         PuPuu! Puu! Pu~u!!
    
         JUSTIN
         . . . ? Isn't that Pooy . . . ?
    
    *** Pooy flies out of a clump of plants at top speed, circling Justin & Feena
    excitedly.
    
         POOY
         PuppuPu PuppuPu PuPuPuu PuPu.
    
         JUSTIN
         Wa-Wait a minute! Pooy, slow down!! Sue, what happened to Sue!?
    
         POOY
         PuPuPu Puu Pu!? PuPuPuu. PuuPuu PuPuPu Puu!!
    
         JUSTIN
         Waaiit! I said slow down, Pooy!!
    
         POOY
         PuPu? PuPuPuPuuPu. PuPuppuPu PuuPuuPuu!
    
         FEENA
         Hang on, Justin! We're getting nowhere this way. Let's allow Pooy to
         guide us!!
    
         JUSTIN
         R-right. You're right . . . Okay, we're counting on you, Pooy!!
    
         POOY
         PuPuu!
    
    *** Pooy flies off along a nearby path and the pair follows. The path opens
    into a wide clearing, where a small, makeshift house stands its ground in
    the midst of the wild environment. Near the house is a cooking pot, boiling
    and bubbling with vigor. Pooy stops and begins flying in circles around the
    pot.
    
         POOY
         PuuPuPuppuu!! PuPu! PuPuPuPuPuu!!
    
         JUSTIN
         Pooy! Sue . . . What happened to Sue!?
    
         FEENA
         . . . ! Ju-Justin!! Look over there! See, next to the pot!
    
         JUSTIN
         Huh, next to the pot . . . ?
    
    *** Justin & Feena run over toward the trendy little green bag lying on the
    ground near the pot. This, too, is familiar.
    
         JUSTIN
         Th-This can't . . . be Sue's bag!! D-Don't tell me that . . . that pot
         . . .
    
    *** They gape at the pot in disbelief, unable to come to grips with the idea of
    what has apparantly happened to poor Sue.
    
         FEENA
         Wh-Wh-Wha . . . What're we gonna do, Justin?
    
         JUSTIN
         D-Don't be stupid! Slow down, Feena!!
    
         FEENA
         B-But . . .
    
    *** At that moment, a giant man, covered by a heavy, plated suit of armor and
    wearing an enormous, horned helmet, strides into view. Justin & Feena,
    upset and anxious to know what has happened to their friend, rush to
    confront the man.
    
         JUSTIN
         Hey, you! Is that your pot!? Where's the stuff that was in it!!
    
         GIANT MAN
         If there was anything in the pot, I've eaten it up. There's nothing
         left.
    
    *** Unable to bear the horrible thought of her dear friend being cannibalized,
    Feena groans and faints dead away.
    
         JUSTIN
         Feena!!
    
    *** Justin rushes to Feena's side, kneeling next to her.
    
         JUSTIN
         Damn it!!
    
    *** Unable to revive Feena, Justin rises, turns, and walks toward the man with
    angry determination in his eyes. He draws his weapon, stepping into a
    battle stance.
    
         JUSTIN
         All right, come on, let's go! Because of this, I'm gonna make stew out
         of you too!!
    
         GIANT MAN
         Hmph! A duel, man-to-man, eh?
    
    *** The man lifts a massive blade out of its scabbard and draws it skillfully
    into a classic back middle position.
    
         GIANT MAN
         Very well! I accept your challenge!! I am Gadwyn, Knight of Daito!
    
    *** Driven by anger as he is, Justin is still no match for the giant knight,
    and quickly falls to the power of Gadwyn's mighty technique, Ryujinken.
    Upon regaining consciousness later . . .
    
         JUSTIN
         Uh . . . Uhh . . .
    
         FEENA & SUE
         Justin!!
    
         JUSTIN
         Huh . . . Sue . . . ?
    
    *** Justin scrambles to his feet in surprise.
    
         JUSTIN
         Wh-What are you doing here!? Weren't you made into stew . . . !
    
    *** A handsome woman with warm and caring eyes, previously sitting nearby,
    rises to her feet.
    
         WOMAN
         Ha ha ha ha. That is a dish Gadwyn prides himself on: Flying Dragon
         stew.
    
         JUSTIN
         Wh-Who are you . . . ?
    
         SUE
         Gadwyn and Dr. Alma helped me after I passed out in the woods.
         Dr. Alma's super nice. She's been just like a mom to me!
    
         ALMA
         I am Alma. I am the doctor of the village ahead of here called Daito.
         But it was surprising. That this child would make Gadwyn, the
         strongest swordsman in Daito, his opponent and duel with him, I never
         would have. . .
    
    *** The mouth of the strange-looking, fish-shaped house swings open, and Gadwyn
    steps out of the mouth to talk to the group.
    
         GADWYN
         Alma, don't say such impolite things. That boy is an excellent
         swordsman.
         Such keen swordsmanship looks good for one so young . . . It felt good
         to have such a battle after so long! Isn't that right, Justin?
    
         ALMA
         Good grief . . . Gadwyn, you're always like a child, saying that kind
         of thing . . .
         Well, since it seems like this child also is feeling better, I shall
         return to Daito. I'll leave the rest to you, Gadwyn.
    
         GADWYN
         Alma, you seem like you're in a big hurry. Hmph! Oh no, the habitual
         rains aren't . . . ?
    
         ALMA
         Yeah . . . it's that bad. People are beginning to pass out. I may
         possibly have to stay up all night.
    
    *** Without another word, Alma hurries off, her face grave.
    
         JUSTIN
         She left . . . even though I still hadn't even thanked her . . .
    
         FEENA
         Anyway, let's rest. C'mon, everyone!
    
    
    
    *** Camp
    
         JUSTIN
         Sorry Gadwyn. Even though you'd helped Sue, I jumped to conclusions .
         . .
    
         SUE
         Ahahaha! That's really just like you, Justin . . . since it was a
         severe misunderstanding.
    
         JUSTIN
         But you know, it wasn't just me, was it? Feena was the one who
         fainted.
         Her eyes rolled so far up into her head!
    
         FEENA
         My . . . My eyes did not, either! Oooh! Justin, you jerk!
    
         GADWYN
         Waaah hah hah hah! . . . don't worry about it, don't worry about it!
         It's a mistake anyone could have made.
    
         FEENA (pick Justin)
         . . . Hey, Justin? Do you want to ask Gadwyn some stuff about this
         world?
         I think it'll be useful for the adventures ahead, so . . .
    
         FEENA (pick)
         Still . . . just realizing that there was no end to the world made a
         terrific impression on me . . .
         But it was really a surprise to find people living over on this side
         of the wall!
    
         GADWYN
         It's the same way for me. I never would have imagined, even in my
         dreams, that people would come from the other side of the wall.
    
         GADWYN (pick Feena)
         When I first laid eyes on you, I sensed that you possessed great
         skill.
         How about it?! Shall we explore Dan Hibiki's super art together!?
    
         FEENA
         N-Now just a minute! Why does it have to come to that!?
    
         SUE (pick)
         You know, after I fainted, Gadwyn carried me on his shoulder back to
         his house.
    
         GADWYN
         Iya, katsugou to shita toki ni wa kono marui no ni zuibun ketobasareta
         zo. Wa ha ha ha! (Not sure how "kono marui" is supposed to fit in here
         . . . the kanji for marui here is the one that means "round", but . .
         .)
         No, when I went to put you on my shoulder, you completely refused!
         Waah hah hah hah!
    
         SUE
         Pooy intended to protect me, too! Isn't that right, Pooy?
    
         POOY
         PuPuu! Puu!
    
         SUE (pick)
         Hey, by the way Gadwyn, why are you living alone in a place like this,
         where there are only flying dragons, huh?
    
         GADWYN
         To train, of course. Even the tough flying dragons who have grown up
         lose their lives . . .
         My path in life is as that of a warrior . . . I must look at life and
         death at all times. I believe that this is the way of a man.
    
         GADWYN (pick)
         By the way Justin, is it really true, as you say, that the three of
         you crossed that huge wall?
    
         JUSTIN
         My story about the World's End is true, of course! We've come from
         across the wall on an adventure to search for the ruins of Enjoule
         civilization!
    
         GADWYN
         Hm, it's hard for me to believe your story so suddenly, but . . . we
         are friends who have dueled, man-to-man. When I look into your eyes, I
         can tell that you are not lying!
         If there's anything I can do for you, I'll do everything in my power
         to do it. Anything you want to know?

         3) Is the woman doctor Alma your sweetheart?
    
         *** Choose 2
    
         GADWYN
         Hm, I don't know what this thing you are looking for is like, but it
         certainly has to be far to the south.
         I've heard from people in my village that there's an ancient ruin of
         Enjoule remaining there.
    
         JUSTIN
         What! Really !? That's gotta be Alent!!
         Feena, Sue! We're leaving immediately! Quickly, let's get ready
         quickly!

         Ahaha! No way, Justin! Alent isn't going to run away, you know.

         Ha ha ha. The land where those ruins is quite far to reach from here,
         no matter how many days you walk.
         I will guide you to the village of Daito. It would be very well to
         prepare for a long trip after arriving there. (Not sure what "temae ni

         No, Alma is only a childhood friend. I live alone in this remote place
         to train, but sometimes Alma visits me, offering medicine or to mend
         my clothing.
    
         FEENA
         Hmmm, that sounds like more than a childhood friend . . .
    
         SUE
         It does. I think Gadwyn's kinda hiding his feelings, don't you?
    
         JUSTIN
         By the way, Alma . . . Her face looked so serious . . . did something
         happen at the village?
    
         GADWYN
         Yes . . . Lately, something a little troublesome has been happening in
         Daito.
         Daito is a fishing village on the seashore ahead of here.
         It once was a village with a rich supply of delicious fish that could
         be caught . . .
         I'm sorry, but I'm not very good at telling long stories. I'll guide
         you to the village later, and it would be very well if you get the
         details from Alma at that time.

         This place is called Hiryuu Valley. It's the closest place to the
         World's End, and the most violent mountainous region in the world.
         It's the perfect place for a man to train and improve his skills with
         a sword.
    
         FEENA
         That's right . . . In this world, this place appears to be the World's
         End as well.
         In our world, it's kind of like how the Great Forest of Mist is, isn't
         it . . .
    
         GADWYN
         I was quite surprised, then, to find a little girl passed out in a

         You've helped us in a lot of ways, Gadwyn. You saved Sue for us and

         of trouble, we'll lend a hand.

         . . . My lord! If we do nothing, we're going to be in trouble!! If the
         rains begin to fall . . .
    
         ELDER
         Tashika ni sono toori ja ga . . . Nou, Gadwyn! Hontou ni ame ga

         That is certainly true, but . . . Gadwyn! Does it truly look like it's
         going to rain?

         I'm not saying that it's certainly going to rain, but . . . when I saw
         those clouds, I felt a chill run along my spine . . .
         . . . hm? Oh, it's you . . . Excuse me, but I need to speak with the
         Elder here just a little more.
         I believe there is a place you can stay at around here, so would you
         please head over there? Once my talk with the Elder has finished, I
         will immediately go there as well.

         . . . hm? Yes, good people? I am the Elder of this village . . . Is
         there something you need?
         I'm terribly sorry, but right now I have a serious matter to discuss.
         Could you please come again at a later time?

         Ah, it's you! So you've come to visit me? I just finished treating
         patients a little while ago.
         As I expected, it's that Tower of Rain and Moon that's the cause of all of
         this... I've recently come to understand very well the patients whom I take
         into my care . . . I have a feeling I've made a terrible mistake.
         From now on, I'm going to be very busy, so it would be best if you all
         relax and rest well.

         Still, those clouds . . . We ought to take them seriously, but . . .

         creature who is musing to himself aloud.)

         Hmm . . . I saw to delivering medicine to Dr. Alma . . . but it didn't
         seem like enough at all.
         I'll have to leave and come back, then, eh? (Sigh) What a pain in the butt.
         But... if everybody gets well from my medicine, my sales'll heat up too.
         What a wonderful idea, you know?!
    
         JUSTIN
         Ee!? Totsuzen iwarete mo naa . . .

         really derogatory to me)

         Wooowww! It's the first time I've ever seen a talking bunny!
    
    *** Sue excitedly dashes over to get a better look at the bunny.
    
         SUE
         Nee, chotto dake sawarasete kunnai?
         Hey, can I just touch you for a minute?
    
    *** Sue stands up on the tips of her toes and stretches her arm out to quickly
    touch an inquistive finger to one of the bunny's long, soft-looking ears.
    The creature leaps up indignantly and Sue shrinks back, startled.

         What the heck is wrong with all of you!? Since you came in, all you've
         been saying is "a bunny, a bunny!" . . .
         If you ask me, it's you guys who've come from across the wall who look
         like strange creatures!

    the group, and grins.

         By the way, my people are known as the Moge. Do you all know of the
         proverb that goes along with them?

         "When there are no people with roles to play, he will be born." That's
         you, Justin. (Did I translate this proverb correctly?)
    
         JUSTIN
         Dakara kotowaza nanka doudemo... ii !? O-Ore no namae made shitten no!?

         The Moge know everything. That's the way our race is, you see.
    
         (Speak to Gido again)
    
         GIDO

         Justin, if you are "the one who hopes for many answers", you must
         continue your journey.
         If you continue your travels, you'll see many things. You'll learn
         about the world and spirit, and about yourself . . .
         . . . Well, soon I'll have to prepare to leave. I'm going to miss my
         chance to stock up on my goods if I don't, you know.
    
         JUSTIN

         . . .
         Maybe we do, and maybe we don't. That is my answer for now.
         If you do continue your journey, we will surely meet again somewhere.
         Let's speak again at that time.
    
         (If you speak to Gido again . . .)

         If you do continue your journey, we will surely meet again somewhere.
         Let's speak again at that time.
         The Moge can be anywhere. That's the way our race is, you see.

         You will be staying, then? Please, please! Let me show you three to .
         . .
    
    *** Night falls, and the three adventurers drift off to sleep still wondering
    what all the fuss is about in Daito. Gadwyn shows up at the inn at a rather
    late hour, and the next morning, Justin inquires about it.
    
         JUSTIN
         Doushitan da yo, Gadwyn? Kinou wa zuibun osokunatte kara yado ni
         kaette kita mitai dakedo . . .
         What's going on, Gadwyn? Yesterday it sounded like you came to the inn
         pretty late, but . . .
    
    *** Gadwyn turns to face Justin, looking concerned.
    
         GADWYN

         Mm . . . My conversation with elder dragged on. Well, if it doesn't
         rain, there won't be a problem, but . . .
    
         FEENA
         Ame . . . ? Sakki soto o mietara mou futteta wa yo.
         Rain . . . ? When I looked outside a while ago, it was already
         starting to fall.
    
    *** Gadwyn suddenly looks shocked.
    
         GADWYN
         Nani! I-Ikan!!
         What! N-No, it can't!!
    
    *** The giant knight runs off, obviously upset.
    
         JUSTIN
         Doushitan da Gadwyn, ikinari!
         What's wrong with Gadwyn all of a sudden?!
    
         OUTSIDE OF THE INN
    
         GADWYN
         Mumu . . . Tashika ni ame ga . . . Kore wa taihen da!
         Hmph . . . It's raining, all right . . . This is terrible!
    
    *** Justin, Feena, and Sue step out of the inn just in time to watch as Gadwyn
    runs off toward the center of the village.
    
         SUE
         Doushita no ka na, Gadwyn? Ame gurai de hen na noo!
         What's the matter with Gadwyn, I wonder? It's weird that he's acting
         this way about something like rain!
    
    *** Feena looks thoughtful, her face serious.
    
         FEENA
         Uun, chigau wa . . . Douyara tada ame ja nai mitai ne. Watashitachi mo

         Uh-uh, that's not true . . . Somehow, this doesn't seem to be just
         rain. Let's go and see, too, shall we?!
    
         (If you run off towards the center of the village, you'll see that the
         Elder is speaking to Gadwyn and some of the other residents of the
         village.)
    
         ELDER
         . . . shittoru ja rou, Gadwyn? Seirei no kago o ushinaishi, Ugetsu no

         . . . You know, don't you Gadwyn? We have lost the divine protection
         of spirit, and the scene of the Tower of Rain and Mooon is . . .
         The earth is being tortured by the poisonous rain. The dead rivers
         stained with ill-omen are just like that which can determined from the
         scene, aren't they?
    
         GADWYN
         Mochiron, wakatteiru . . . Yagate doku no ame wa akaku kawari, shi no

         Yes, of course, I understand . . . Before long, the poisonous rain
         will turn red, and become rain of death . . .
         And to save Daito, there is nothing that can be done except to climb
         the Tower of Rain and Moon to the path of transmission, and then bring back
         the Spear of Heroes.
    
         ELDER
         Dakara, itte oru no ja. Kono yuusha no udewa o uketotte kure to! Daito

         That is why I say this to you: Please accept this Bracelet of Heroes!
         Please, save our village of Daito!!

         I have already prepared for this. My training would have been useless
         otherwise.
         But, my lord . . . aren't you forgetting something? To procure the
         Spear of Heroes, two heroes are required!
         If I go alone, I still do not know how I could overcome the last
         trial!
    
         ELDER
         Da ga, onushi shika oran no da yo. Yuusha to yoberu sonzai wa na . . .
    
         But Gadwyn, there's no one else here besides you. Anyone else existing
         who could be called a hero isn't . . .
    
         GADWYN
         Fumu . . . komatta . . .
         Hmmm . . . I am at a loss.
    
         JUSTIN
         Nanda yo Gadwyn!! Ore ga issho ni itte yaru yo!
         I know, Gadwyn!! I'll go with you!!
    
    *** Justin comes running up to meet the group of villagers.
    
         ELDER

         What . . . you're just a child. I am happy that you feel determined to
         help, but . . .
    
         GADWYN

         My lord, you musn't make light of him. Justin is none other than the
         man who came from across the World's End!
    
         ELDER
         Na-Nan to? Ano hate shinai kabe o konna kodomo ga!?
         Wh-What? This child . . . not the wall at the end of the world!?
    
    *** Gadwyn steps up to Justin, eyeing him seriously.
    
         GADWYN

         Justin . . . The Tower of Rain and Moon that I must go to is a terrible,
         dangerous place.
         Without the divine protection of spirit, you may lose your very life.
         I could never forgive myself if something happened to you. Even yet,
         even yet . . . do you still want to go?
    
         JUSTIN

         Fear of danger isn't fit for an adventurer!
         And besides, we made a promise between men, didn't we?! When there's
         trouble, we'll help each other!!
    
         GADWYN

         Gaaaahh hah hah hah! . . . that's right! You and I swore an oath,

    *** Gadwyn turns to face the Elder again.
    
         GADWYN
         Chourou! Denshou no toori futari no yuusha ga sorotta no da! Kore de

         My lord! The path of transmission has been completed by the two of us!
         With this in mind, we can save the village of Daito!!

         Oh! So you have determined a way!!
         Well, then to you two . . . allow me to grant this legendary Bracelet
         of Heroes. Give it to its rightful master, and its light will shine
         brilliantly.
         Let spirit guide these heroes of Daito!
    
    *** Just then, Feena and Sue, who appear to have been listening to the
    converstaion, approach the group. Feena looks rather serious.
    
         FEENA
         Justin . . . Honto ni iku ki na no?
         Justin . . . Are you really serious about going?

         Of course I am! This was a promise between men, you know.
         Heh heh heh, look Feena. Don't I look cool?
    
    *** Feena steps right up to Justin, about to give him a piece of her mind.
    
         FEENA
         Nani ga otoko to otoko no yakusoku yo! Yuusha nante iwarete
         maiagatteru dake ja nai! (What does "maiagatteiru" mean?)
         Wazawaza kikenna koto ni kubi o tsukkomu nante boukensha toshite wa
         niryuu . . . uun, sanryuu na no yo!!
         What's your man-to-man promise about?! Calling you a hero doesn't just
         make you one!
         If you're always sticking your neck into danger, then you're no better
         than a second-rate . . . no, a third-rate adventurer!!
    
         SUE
         Doushita no Feena . . . Doushite sonna ni okotteiru no . . . ? Nanka

         What's the matter, Feena? . . . Why are you so mad . . . ? You're
         acting differently than you usually do.
    
         JUSTIN
         Sou da yo. Nanka hen da ze? Kikenna koto ni chousensuru kara boukensha
         nan jan ka!
         Daijoubu! Umaku iku tte! Ima made mo zutto sou datta darou?
         She's right, Feena. Isn't there something wrong with you? Aren't we
         adventurers because we challenge danger?!
         It's all right! Let's go, and with no hard feelings. We've always been
         friendly before now, right?
    
         FEENA
         Justin . . .
    
         GADWYN
         Yooshi, Justin! Kakugo wa dekiteiru you da na. Soredewa, sassoku
         shuppatsu da!
         Mezasu Ugetsu no tou wa Daito no mura no kita ni aru!
         All right, Justin! It seems like we're ready, so let's leave right
         away!
         Our goal, the Tower of Rain and Moon, lies north of Daito village!
    
         (If you speak to the Elder before leaving . . .)
    
         ELDER

         We're counting on you. You are the only ones we can rely upon.
         Please, bring back the Spear of Heroes from the top floor of the
         Tower of Rain and Moon, and save our village of Daito . . .
         Gadwyn, if anyone can do it, I believe you can.
    
         (If you speak to the Elder again . . .)
    
         ELDER
         Kanarazu ya, Ugetsu no tou no saijoukai ni aru yuusha no yari o
         hikinuite kuru no da. Washi wa onushitachi o shinjite oru zo.!
         Be sure to pull out the Spear of Heroes from the top floor of the
         Tower of Rain and Moon. I believe in you all!
    
    *** The group sets out for the Tower of Rain and Moon that looms ominously 
    to the north, determined to save the village of Daito . . .

    *** The party soon reaches the mountains that lie to the north of Daito
    village, and begin the trek up into the foothills through the pouring rain.
    Poisonous rivers of vile sludge flow through furrows that run down from the
    peaks and in between the smaller mounds of rock. The downhill progress of
    the rivers is further aided by the downpour, and the combination of falling
    rain plus poison-filled muck creates a perfect breeding ground for fungi of
    many types. Mushrooms larger than even Gadwyn grow here and there, while
    some that are not so large cling to the steep, rocky cliffs like steps,
    allowing the party to ascend parts of the foothills which would otherwise
    be too treacherous to climb. Giant, plant-like creatures, similar to the
    ones found near World's End, but more sinister and eerie, roam the hills in
    droves here. Nevertheless, the four heroes press on, and soon find
    themselves closing in on the steeper part of the mountain range.
    
    *** Gadwyn pauses briefly, a strange contrast to his recently usual sense of
    urgency. The sound of the rain striking the tormented earth makes even his
    deep voice a bit difficult to hear.
    
         GADWYN
         Ame ga tsuyokunatte kite iru . . . Seirei no kago ga sukunakunatte
         kita to iu koto ka . . .
         The rains are becoming stronger . . . Is this the divine protection of
         spirit fading . . . ?
    
         FEENA
         Nee . . . Yappari hikikaesubeki yo. Kore ijou susumu to kiken da wa,
         kitto!
         You know . . . We should turn back, after all. If we advance any
         further from here, there's surely going to be danger!
    
         JUSTIN
         Daijoubu da yo, Feena! Ore ga iru jan ka!
         It'll be okay, Feena! I'm here, aren't I?!
    
         FEENA
    
         Mou! Souiu koto ja nai no! Nani ka iyana yokan ga suru no yo . . .
         Stop it, already! That's not what I'm talking about! I've got a bad
         feeling about this . . .
    
    *** The group starts to move forward again, but Justin, abashed though he is by
    Feena's remark, speaks up after a few steps.
    
         JUSTIN
         Are? Doushita no ka na!? Nanka shintai ga piripirisuru . . .
         Huh? What's happening, I wonder!? My body feels hot, or something...
    
    *** Gadwyn looks shocked by Justin's statement, but his fearful expression
    betrays his knowledge of a terrible situation.
    
         GADWYN
         Ikan! Kono atari no ame wa doku no ame da!! Mamonaku kono ame wa
         akakukawaru!
         Nokosareta jikan wa ato wazuka da! Isogu zo, Justin!!
         No! The rain around here is poisonous!! Before long, it will become red!
         Our time remaining is short! Hurry, Justin!!
    
    *** The party continues on, moving up along the inclined terrain steadily, yet
    still unable to see their goal ahead. Their current surroundings are what
    demand immediate attention, however, for the landscape has suddenly become
    dotted with mushrooms large as houses . . . and apparently, the great
    growths are indeed houses to strange, foul-looking creatures who live
    inside of them. These creatures are known as the Krepp, beings who appear
    to be akin to vultures, and look just as ugly, but which are humanoid in
    stature and appear to more intelligent than mere animals. Though their
    language is guttural and unfamilar, it seems all too clear that the Krepp
    are not in the least bit happy to see the adventurers, and they attack the
    party savagely, using weapons that are surprisingly well-made and even
    crude forms of sorcery in attempts to beat the heroes down. Gadwyn, Justin,
    Feena, and Sue still doggedly continue up into the mountains, however,
    despite battling the seemingly endless hordes of enemies seething around
    them. At last, the party walks out from a cluster of mushroom houses into a
    clear area, where they can see a tall, semi-organic stucture looming high
    above the rest of the natural buildings, and the group realizes that they
    have reached their destination: The Tower of Rain and Moon.

    *** The architecture seems to indicate that this was once an elegantly
    constructed spire, but upon entering the Tower of Rain and Moon, the heroes find
    that it has been overrun by the vile Krepp. The monsters have claimed the
    tower for their own, turning what was before most likely a place of beauty
    and tranquility into a squalid, overpopulated barracks for their kind. The
    walls and floors are covered with fungi, even more so than the mountains
    outside, and the rooms are littered with barrels, stray weapons, and
    miscellaneous junk. Of course, the Krepp are everywhere as well, and are
    extremely angered by the intrusion of the despised humans, with whom they
    battle fiercely at every turn. Despite the overwhelming odds, the party
    works to make their way through the twisting hallways, avoiding the traps
    set by the Krepp as best they can.
    
    *** Eventually, the group steps up into the third floor of the tower to find
    themselves in a massive chamber. In the center of the chamber, resting on
    top of a huge, green, crystalline dais, is a throne much larger than one
    suitable for any man to sit upon. A lone Krepp stands hunchbacked in front
    of the massive throne, and turns to face the adventurers as they approach
    the dais. The birdman's rasping voice, though unintellible, bears an
    unmistakeably hostile attitude.
    
         KREPP
         Guagerattsu! Zupadou gidabeba!
         Gwagehrattsu! Zupadow geedah bebah!
    
         GADWYN
         Mu . . . are ka! Kureppu o hikiiteiru no wa kokoroshite kakare,
         Justin!
         Hmph . . . so that's the one! Deal with this leader of the Krepp with
         care, Justin!
    
         JUSTIN
         Makasetokette!! Kedo saa . . . yowasou da yo naa, aitsu.
         You got it!! But, y'know . . . he looks pretty wimpy.
    
         KREPP
         Geeeeee!
         Geeeeeh!
    
    *** The Krepp screeches, and charges down toward Justin, swinging its sickle
    wildly. It spins and leaps into the air, and as it lands, a black aura
    begins to pulsate around its body. Space around and within the creature's
    form seems to contort in upon itself, and when the laws of physics appear
    to have sorted themselves out again, in place of the frail-looking Krepp
    towers an enormous, four-headed serpent!
    
         JUSTIN
         Ge, kawarimi shiyagatta!!
         (Gulp) It mutated!! (lit: converted, adapted)
    
         GADWYN
         Hirumuna, Justin!! Chikara o awasereba, katenu aite dewa nai. Iku zo!!
         Don't flinch, Justin!! If we work together, as comrades, we cannot
         lose. Let's go!!
    
    *** The giant serpent is a fearsome opponent, but still it is no match for the
    power of the four heroes. Victory!
    
         SUE
         Yatta ne, Justin! Ato wa yuusha no yari o nuku dake ne!
         We did it, Justin! Now we just have to draw out the Spear of Heroes!
    
         GADWYN
         Umu, migoto da, Justin. Iyoiyo ato wa saigo no shiren o nokosu nomi!
         Mmm, well done, Justin. Finally, the only thing left is the last
         trial!
    
         JUSTIN
         Sousou! Nokotteru no wa saigo no shiren dake . . . tte.
         Ee!? Sakki no kaibutsu ga saigo no shiren dattan ja nai no ka yo!?
         Yeah, yeah! The only thing left is the final . . . trial.
         Huh!? You mean, that monster wasn't the final trial!?
    
         GADWYN
         Chikara dake de taoseru you na mono naraba, washira rekisen no yuushi
         ni totte ma no shiren to wa yobenu.
         Kokokara saki koso ga washi to omae no otoko ga tamesareru basho na no
         da. Saa, iku zo, Justin!
         If it were something that only required strength, it wouldn't be a
         serious trial for veterans like ourselves.
         You and I will be truly tested from here on. So let's go, Justin!
    
    *** Behind the throne is a massive crystalline plate set into the floor. Justin
    steps onto the plate, and the decorative columns of stone begin to to
    shift, rumbling as they move. The pillars eventually reach positions where
    they make the shape of an arc, and each one sinks into the floor to a
    specific depth. Once again, all of the columns lock into position, and the
    top of each splits into circular wedges of stone. The pieces slide into
    place, forming a series of steps leading up from the lowest column, whose
    top is close enough to the floor of the chamber to reach, to the highest
    one. The stone plate on top of the highest pillar dematerializes, and a
    column of light shines up from within the pillar of stone.
    
    *** The party climbs the series of platforms to reach the top, and step into
    the column of light. Its brightness briefly envelopes them and then fades,
    revealing that the surroundings have changed. The group now stands at the
    bottom of a long staircase, surrounded by blackness. Bravely forging ahead,
    the heroes ascend the stairs and step up into another chamber, though this
    one not quite as large as the last. The room is carved from blue stone, and
    the floor of the chamber depicts a starry night sky with the planets
    visible in the heavens. Two mirrors stand on opposite sides of the chamber,
    and a stone monolith with an inscription rests against the wall between
    them.
    
         JUSTIN
         Rere? Ikitomari jan ka. Doko ni anda yo, yuusha no yari nante.
         What the . . .? This looks like a dead end. Where do we find this
         thing, the Spear of Heroes?
    
         GADWYN
         . . . Justin yo. Koko unmei no kagami no aida de subete ga owaru.
         Kono heya koso ga kono tou no yuusha ni ataerareru saigo no shiren na
         no da!
         . . . Justin. Here, within the Mirrors of Fate, everything ends.
         For inside this room, within this tower, is the final trial to obtain
         the Spear of Heroes!
    
         JUSTIN
         Saigo no shiren . . .
         The final trial . . .
    
         GADWYN
         Shiren no naiyou wa sono sekiban ni kisareteiru yonde miru ga ii,
         Justin.
         It would be best if you read of the requirements of the trial recorded
         upon that stone tablet there, Justin.
    
    *** Justin, Feena, and Sue move over to look at the stone tablet, while Gadwyn
    steps toward the back of the room.
    
         JUSTIN
         . . . ??? Oi Gadwyn, nante kaitean no ka. Sappari wakannai ze.
         . . . ??? Hey Gadwyn, what's written here? I can't understand it at
         all.
    
         GADWYN
         Kono sekiban ni wa kou kakareteiru . . .
         . . . Unmei o kirihirakou to suru mono yo. Tsuki no kagami to hoshi no
         kagami, izureka no michi o erabu ga yoi.
         Hitotsu wa mirai e to tsuuji ima, hitotsu wa . . . shi no kuni e to
         tsuzuru de arou.
         It is written upon the stone tablet as this:
         You who seek to slice open the Mirrors of Fate should choose your path
         . . . the Mirror of the Moon, or the Mirror of Stars.
         One leads to the future, and one leads . . . to the Realm of the Dead.
    
    *** The three look shocked as Gadwyn's reluctant explanation comes to a close,
    and they anxiously rush over to confront him.
    
         FEENA
         Sore tte . . . machigatta kagami o erandara, shinjau tte koto? Saisho
         kara shitteta no ne, Gadwyn!?
         That means . . . that if you choose the wrong mirror, you'll die? You
         knew this all along, didn't you Gadwyn!?
    
         JUSTIN
         Gadwyn ga hitori ja Daito o sukuenai tte iita no wa kouiu koto datta
         no ka . . .
         So this is what you meant when you said that you couldn't save the
         village of Daito alone . . .
    
    *** Gadwyn turns to face the party, his expression fiercely stern and
    determined.
    
         GADWYN
         Anzuruna, Justin. Omae o shinasehasen . . . Kagami wa mazu washi
         hairu.
         Do not be afraid, Justin. I will not allow you to die . . . I will
         enter a mirror first.
    
         JUSTIN
         Chotto matte yo, Gadwyn! Moshimo . . . moshimo da ze, sono eranda
         michi ga machigattetara . . .
         Hang on a minute, Gadwyn! If . . . If the path you choose is wrong . .
         .
    
         GADWYN
         Sono toki wa Justin . . . Omae ga nokosareta kagami ni hairu no da!
         Michi wa machigainaku mirai e to tsuujiteiru.
         If that happens, Justin . . . You will enter the remaining mirror! It
         will lead to the future without fail.
    
         JUSTIN
         Baka, sonna koto kiiterun ja nai! Sorette Gadwyn ga shinjau tte koto
         darou!
         Ma-Masaka Gadwyn. Hajimekkara sono tsumori de . . . !?
         No, damn it, that's not what I'm talking about! If that happens,
         you'll die!
         I don't believe this, Gadwyn . . . You intended from the beginning to
         . . . !?
    
         GADWYN
         Omae wa tabinin no mi de arinagara, washira no mura o sukou to shite
         kureta . . . Omae no otokoke ni washi ga kotaeyou.
         Sonna kao o suruna. Washi ga shinda toki, Daito o sukuu no wa Justin,
         omae na no da zo.
         Even though you were just a traveler, you offered to save our village
         . . . I shall answer your spirit as a man with that of my own.
         Don't make such a face. If I die, the one who saves Daito will be you,
         Justin.
    
    *** With those words, Gadwyn turns and walks towards the tablet, prepared to
    sacrifice his life if necessary to save his village.
    
         SUE
         Shinja yada, Gadwyn!!
         Don't die, Gadwyn!!
    
         GADWYN
         Otoko ni wa inochi kakete demo yaritogeneba naranu koto ga aru no da .
         . .
         There are some tasks a man must carry out, even at the risk of his own
         life . . .
    
         FEENA
         Gadwyn . . . Kitto kaette kite ne. Seirei no kago o inotteru kara . .
         .
         Gadwyn . . . You'll come back. I will pray for the divine protection
         of spirit to watch over you . . .
    
    *** Reaching the trial tablet, Gadwyn makes the fateful decision.
    
         GADWYN
         Wa ga na wa Gadwyn! Shiren no sekiban yo, ima seirei no michibiki ni
         shitagai . . .
         I am Gadwyn! Trial tablet, I now obey the guidance of spirit by . . .
    
    *** Gadwyn turns to face the mirror on the right-hand side of the chamber.
    
         GADWYN
         . . . tsuki no kagami o erabu! Hirake, tsuki no kagami yo!
         . . . choosing the Mirror of the Moon! Open, Mirror of the Moon!
    
    *** As a soft glow of white light begins to shine forth from within the mirror,
    Gadwyn turns to face Justin for what may be the last time.
    
         GADWYN
         Saraba da, Justin!
         Farewell, Justin!
    
         JUSTIN
         . . . Gadwyn!
         . . . Gadwyn!
    
    *** With that, Gadwyn steps toward the Mirror of the Moon, intending to enter
    the gateway regardless of the cost. Gadwyn takes his final steps toward the
    mirror and then . . . stops. A clanking of something metallic can be heard.
    The giant knight steps forward, and once again the sound of metal clashing
    upon metal fills the chamber. Gadwyn breaks into a run, and the metallic
    noises escalate into a cacaphony of crashing sounds. All the while, Gadwyn
    appears to be running in place, as if gearing up for one of his many
    training excercises.
    
    *** Suddenly, a man in tight-fitting lycra pants and a faded, striped
    sweatshirt appears from within the mirror. His head is covered by curly
    brown hair that looks like a Chia Pet experiment gone awry. As the man
    begins to leap up and down, clapping his hands, his effeminate voice echoes
    throughout the room as he cries "All right, people . . . Step with it now!"
    As the group stares on in bewilderment, the strange man suddenly disappears
    in a puff of imagination gone sour, and the story resumes.
    
    *** Gadwyn stops and steps back from the mirror, then turns toward the party,
    looking frustrated.
    
         JUSTIN
         Do . . . Doushitan da yo, Gadwyn.
         Wh . . . What's wrong, Gadwyn?
    
         GADWYN
         . . . Mumu, ikan! Kono kagami wa washi ni wa chisasugiru!! Ha . . .
         Hairen!
         . . . Hmph, it can't be! This mirror is too small for me!! I ca . . .
         can't enter!
    
    *** The group looks shocked again, but then as knowledge of the situation
    begins to sinks in, Justin grins over Gadwyn's plight.
    
         JUSTIN
         Na-Nan da yo, Gadwyn, honki de kandoushiteta no ni saa.
         M-Man, Gadwyn, I was seriously impressed for a minute there, but . . .

         What is a hero, Justin?! You're not fools, are you, you and Gadwyn?!
         I mean, why must you risk your life to save the people of Daito!?
         If you die, you will never go on an adventure again! Is that okay with

    his fate.
    
         JUSTIN

         . . . Here I come! From this place lies the very road which leads to
         the future!!
    
    *** The hero closes his eyes, and steps into the mirror . . .
    
    *** When Justin opens his eyes again, he is once more standing at the bottom of
    a long stairway leading up into blackness. Strange sounds emanate from the
    profound darkness all around him.
    
         JUSTIN
         Yappari . . . Feena ga erande kureta michi ga tadashikattan da . . .

         I guess . . . the path Feena chose was right after all . . .
         Thank you, Feena!!
    
    *** The stairway winds upward for a long time, and terminates at last at the
    entrance to a small room. Across from the stairwell, hanging
    inconspicuously upon the wall, is the Spear of Heroes!
    
         JUSTIN
         . . . Kore da na! Kono yari o motte kaereba iin da. Yoo~shi!!
         . . . This is it! All I have to do is take this spear home. Heeeere
         goes . . .!!
    
    *** Justin slowly reaches up to take the Spear. As his hand touches it, the
    chamber is bathed in a soft, pulsing red light that is almost too faint to
    make out at first, yet growing to a clearly discernable flashing, maroon
    flare. Finally, Justin pulls the ceremonial weapon down, and it comes off
    of the wall easily. The flashing light subsides.
    
         *** Picked up the Spear of Heroes!
    
    *** As Justin takes the Spear from its resting place, a quiet rumbling can be
    detected, which gradually grows to a roar of crashing rock.
    
         JUSTIN
         Na-Nanda!? Nani wa okottan da!?
         Wh-What the heck!? What's happening!?
    
    *** Giant chunks of stone begin to fall from the ceiling all around!
    
         JUSTIN
         Waa! Konna no kiite nai zo, Gadwyn! Hayaku kokkara nigenakya!!
         Whoa! You didn't tell me this was gonna happen, Gadwyn! I gotta get
         out of here fast!!
    
    *** Justin races out of the chamber and down the stairs, attempting to flee the
    crumbling tower. As he nears the bottom of the twisted stairway, however,
    the steps ahead of him suddenly give way, tumbling into the darkness below!
    
         JUSTIN
         Uwa, korya yabe~~!!
         Waah! this is very baaaad!!
    
    *** Justin turns to run back up the stairs again, but before he can leave the
    platform he is standing on, the stairs above him as well break away and
    drop into the blackness beneath him! The hero steps back from the edge and
    scans the area quickly, desperately looking for a way out, but it seems
    hopeless. Within seconds, the very ground beneath his feet gives way, and
    Justin begins to fall!
    
         JUSTIN
         Waa!
         Wah!
    
    *** The boy jumps in surprise as the platform begins to fall, and then plummets
    into empty space! As the remaining solid ground, already far above, rushes
    up and disappears from sight, a green glow begins to shine faintly from
    within Justin's pocket. The glow intensifies and expands to the point where
    Justin is nearly surrounded by the green light. Clearly, the powers within
    the Spirit Stone have awakened once again as tiny globes of pale,
    yellow-green light begin to circle Justin, bouncing and weaving around him
    like miniature dancers in motion. Justin can feel his fall slowing to a
    halt, and then everything is enveloped in darkness . . .
    
    *** Back in the chamber of the Mirrors of Fate . . .

         This cursed tower is breaking apart.
         That means Justin has successfully drawn out the Spear of Heroes! He
         certainly is a true hero himself!
    
         FEENA
         Sonna koto dou demo ii wa! Justin wa . . . Justin wa dou natta no!?

         Justin!?
    
    *** The tower's shaking intensifies, and large pieces of rock crash to the
    ground very close to the group.
    
         FEENA & SUE
         Kyaa!

         this tower collapses!!
         Feena, Sue, go ahead and get out of this place! I'll wait here for
         Justin to return!!

         care of these two.
         . . . I'm going to put a stop to this!
    
    *** Without no time left for words, Gadwyn reaches down and picks up the girls,
    one tucked underneath each one of his massive arms.
    
         FEENA
         Nani sun no Gadwyn! Hanasee!! Justi~~~~~n!
         What do you think you're doing, Gadwyn?! Let go of me!! Justiiiiiiiin!
    
    *** Gadwyn turns and runs for the exit in a last-ditch effort to escape from
    the collapsing spire.
    
    *** Outside of the Tower of Rain and Moon, the rain is still pouring down 
    from the heavens. The crashing sounds of rock have grown to such a horrible din that
    the tower almost sounds as if it is groaning in pain. Without a doubt, the
    building is nearly about to be destroyed.
    
         FEENA
         Aa, tou ga kuzureru . . .! Justin . . . !!
         Aaah, the tower is collapsing . . .! Justin . . . !!
    
    *** The three look on in vain as the entire structure shakes violently, as if
    it is thrashing in the throes of death, and then, with a blinding flash,
    the tower entirely . . . disappears . . .
    
    *** Feena kneels in front of what was once the Tower of Rain and Moon, her eyes filled with grief.

         washiki mean? Or imawashiki? (since ima is all in kana here, perhaps
         it's part of the word)
         Argh! I will not let you die alone!! Once I have returned these two to
         the village, I too will hara o kiru!! (need help with this idiom... it
         seems pretty easy to guess from the context, but I want to make sure)
    
         SUE
         Justin wa shindarishinai wa! Gadwyn no baka!
         Justin's not dead, you big dummy!
    
    *** Sue delivers an enormous kick to Gadwyn's armored shin, and then throws
    herself down on the ground in a huff, her back turned to the giant knight.
    The little girl begins to shake uncontrollably.
    
         SUE
         Ju-Justi~n. U-Uwaaaaann!
         Ju-Justin.
    
         Sue starts to cry . . .
    
    *** Suddenly, a bright pinpoint of light floating in midair shines forth from a
    spot in front of the group! The three stare at it in amazement, hardly
    daring to hope . . .
    
         GADWYN
         Mumumu, na-nani goto ka!?
         Hmmm? Wh-What is that thing!?

    gracefully as ever.
    
         JUSTIN
         Ite!
         Ouch!
    
    *** Justin sits up, wincing in pain.
    
         JUSTIN

         Justin!
    
         JUSTIN
         To . . .
         Uh . . .
    
         GADWYN
         Kega wa!? Doko mo kega wa nai no ka!?
         Are you hurt!? You're not hurt anywhere!?
    
         JUSTIN
         Kono toori! Pinpinshiteru yo!
         That's right! I've never felt better!
    
         SUE
         Suggo~i!! Justin, honmono no yuusha mita~i!
         Awesome!! Justin, you're just like a real hero!
    
         GADWYN
         Migoto da! Yahari onushi wa washi ga mikonda toori no otoko datta you
         da na!
         Well done! You are truly the man I had expected you to be!
    
         JUSTIN
         So-Sokka? Gadwyn ni sou iwareru to terechau na.
         R-Really? That makes me feel shy, coming from you, Gadwyn. (Man does
         this ever sound femmy to me . . . wonder if there isn't a better way
         to say this?)
    
    *** Feena, who has not yet said a word during all of this, steps a little
    closer to the group, her eyes still downcast.
    
         FEENA
         Justin . . .
         Justin . . .
    
    *** Justin steps forward, posturing boastfully, apparently excited from the big
    knight's praise and his friends' happiness at seeing him return safely.
    
         JUSTIN
         Feena, doudai! Buji ni modotte koreta ze! Ore tte sugoi daro!
         Feena, whaddya think?! I came back safely! Aren't I awesome?!
    
    *** Feena walks up to Justin and stops, studying him with a blank look on her
    face. Justin stops grinning after a moment and scowls, wondering what on
    earth could be the matter with the girl. At that point, much to Justin's
    surprise and dismay, Feena hauls back and slaps him hard across his face!
    
         JUSTIN
         Na-Nani sun da yo! . . .
         . . . to . . .
         Wh-What the heck did you do that for?! . . .
         . . . uh . . .
    
    *** Feena clutches Justin tearfully, her voice brimming with anger, relief, and
    muted joy all at the same time.
    
         FEENA
         Justin no baka! Watashi . . . Watashi . . . Naichatta ja nai no!
         Hito no ki mo shiranai de . . . !
         Justin, you idiot! I . . . I . . . Couldn't you tell I was crying?!
         You don't know anything about people's feelings, either . . . !
    
    *** Justin looks abashed.
    
         JUSTIN
         . . Feena . . .
         . . Feena . . .
    
         FEENA
         Yakusokushite yo, Justin. Mou nido to anna mucha wa shinai de. Onegai!
         Promise me, Justin. Promise me you'll never do anything foolish like
         that again. Please!
    
    *** Justin pushes himself and Feena up straighter, addressing her seriously.
    
         JUSTIN
         Go-Gomen yo . . . Yakusokusuru! Nido to Feena o nakasenai! Chikau yo!
         I-I'm sorry . . . I promise! I'll never make you cry again! I swear!
    
    *** Feena looks less angry and more relieved now.
    
         FEENA
         . . . Hidoi yo, Justin. Watashi . . . Hontou ni shimpaishitan dakara .
         . .
         . . . That was the lowest, Justin. I . . . was really worried about
         you . . .
    
    *** Justin and Feena stand silently together for a moment, and it seems that
    everything is harmonious within the group once again. Sue turns to look
    away, and notices that . . .
    
         SUE
         Are? Itsu no aida ni ka ame ga yanderu . . .
         Huh? When did the rain stop? . . .
    
    *** Suddenly, Sue's eyes light up, and she points at something excitedly.
    
         SUE
         A~!! Minna, mite mite! Hora! Niji ga mieru yoo!
         Ohhh!! Look, look everybody! See?! You can see a rainbow!
    
    The group gazes off into the distance at the colors trailing down from the
    heavens, shimmering in the water left over from the torrential rains.
    Finally, the party begins to work their way back down through the
    mountains, returning to the village of Daito.

                     Sue's courage
    
    
         *** Searching for a way to reach Alent, Justin, Feena and Sue have been
         told that an Enjool artifact, located in the mysterious Vanishing Hill, is
         able to transport you anywhere you want if you operate with a special gem.
         Heading to the place, they find a cave with the artifact and go search
         for the Gem, further on the right, outside the cave. After fighting
         many monsters, they manage to put their hands on the Gem.
    
         *** As Justin, Feena and Sue got the Gem, they are now able to
         operate the Enjool device letting them go anywhere they want. Rather
         than going to Alent, they have decided to send Sue home.
    
         Justin
         All right ! If we put the gem here, Sue will be able to go !
    
         Sue
         ....Waaaah ! Parm ! It's so nostalgic !
    
         Justin
         Amazing... You can really go wherever you want...
    
         Sue
         Justin, don't be selfish and be a pain in the neck to Feena, will you?
    
         Sue
         Don't forget, your tissue's in your pocket, and your toothbrush's...
         Hehehe, you're already fine without me.
    
         Sue
         ...Justin, Feena... Time to say goodbye... Take care !
    
         Justin
         But Sue... Are you sure you'll be all right on your own...?
    
         Justin
         I... I'm coming back with you..
    
         Sue
         Stop it !!! Remember your promise ? You must continue the adventure !
    
         Sue
         I'm leaving now ! We're going to eat a looot of Lily's cooking, aren't
         we Pooy ?
    
         Pooy
         Pupuppuu !
    
         Justin
         But Sue... You're so... And I... I...
    
         Feena
         ...Justin, it's...not what you think ! You've done enough, Sue !!
    
         *** She hugs her
    
         Feena
         It's enough, Sue... Don't force yourself anymore... You've already
         made enough efforts over yourself !
    
         Sue
         ......You... understood,... Feena... I didn't... I didn't want to...
    
         Sue
         I didn't want... you to remember... my last expression... as a tearful
         one !!
    
         Feena
         It's alright... Sue... Please, just don't do that now...
    
         Feena
         Because you can... go back to Parm... And cry there alone ? Okay ?
    
         Sue
         fee... Feena ! I wanted so much... so much... t'be with you... with
         you all !!
    
         Sue
         Now Feena you'll go with Justin... You'll go... And we won't be
         together anymore...
    
         Feena
         We will !!
    
         Feena
         No matter how far we go, we'll keep you in our hearts... Won't we ?
    
         Sue
         Y-yeah !
    
         Feena
         Let's promise ourselves, Sue, that we will definitely meet again...
         You, Justin, and I...

         Thank you Feena ! I'll be looking forward to you coming back !
    
         Sue
         Until then, promise me you'll go on adventures together !
    
         *** She goes
    
         Sue
         ...Ah ! I almost forgot !
    
         Sue
         Hey, look !
    
         *** She twirls
    
         Sue
         See ? That's how I want you to remember me ! Okay ?
    
         Sue
         If you don't remember me this way, you'll never recognize me when I've
         become a wonderful lady !
    
         Justin
         .......Sue...!
    
         Sue
         Bye bye ! Hang in there ! Justin, I'm sure you'll see your dream
         coming true... You'll see the Enjools !

         behind...

         not there. He goes outside to look for her...
    
         Feena
         Ah, Justin ! You're awake ? Look... Wherever you look, you can only
         see the sea... You can't even see one single island...
    
         Feena
         The moon is so beautiful. Its light is reflecting on the sea... It's
         twinkling like a jewel.
    
         Feena
         ...Hey Justin, why are you standing so far from me ? Come here and sit
         with me, will you ?

         Say, you know what I was thinking about ? Guess, Justin...

         *1 Are you thinking about me ?

              I know ! You must be thinking about me ! That Justin, what an
              incredible, virile, strong person ! ...No, that can't be it...!
    
              Feena
              WRONG !

              Justin
              I know ! About Sue ! She was quite noisy, but we're sad now that
              she's not with us anymore...
    
              Feena
              No, not about Sue...
    
              Justin
              About Gadwin then ? "You mustn't neglect your training !!" (he
              quotes Gadwin). Hehe !
    
              Feena
              No, it's not about Gadwin. Neither Sue nor Gadwin... I was
              thinking about you, Justin.
    
              Justin
              Ee ! About me ??
    
              Feena
              Yeah...
    
         Feena
         I was thinking about the first time we met... It was on the sea,
         too... It brings back good memories...
    
         Justin
         But, Feena, at the time I was only a trainee. I didn't even know the
         Adventurers' greeting !
    
         Feena
         I'd never have thought we could go on adventures together...
    
         Feena
         But, you grew in my heart, you took a bigger and bigger place in it...
    
         Justin
         Feena...?
    
         Feena
         At the time I lived with my sister, I was really happy... But, one
         day, she left, and I was left alone.
    
         Feena
         Now, even if I'm happy, I'm still anxious...
    
         Feena
         Not because the others left... Because I fear there will be a day when
         I'm alone again...
    
         Feena
         Justin... From now on, we should be always together, okay ?
    
         Justin
         *1 Of course !
         *2 Hmm, I don't know...
    
         *** Answer *1
              Justin
              Of course ! We'll make other adventures together !
    
              Feena
              Justin, I'm relieved !
    
         *** Answer *2
              Justin
              Well, if I want to go on adventures, it might be risky
              sometimes... But I'll protect you, Feena !
    
              Feena
              Justin ! You're exagerating !
    
         Feena
         But, I'm relieved... Thank you Justin... If we stay always together,
         I'll probably be very happy...
    
         Feena
         Because it's you, Justin... If it was someone else, even if it was my
         sister, it wouldn't be the same...
    
         Justin
         Feena...
    
         Feena
         Say, Justin... Do you... like me ?
    
         Justin
         *1 Yes, I like you !
         *2 Why are you asking ?
    
         *** Answer *1
              Justin
              How could I not like you ! Sue, Gadwin, and you Feena, I like you
              all very much !
    
         *** Answer *2
              Justin
              Hey Feena, why are you saying that ? No one could not like you,
              you know !
    
         Feena
         Justin ! This isn't the "like" I wanted to hear !
    
         Justin
         Eh ? ...Feena... Then, which one ?
    
         Feena
         ............
    
         Justin
         ... ...Feena... Because of the Moon's light, you look so beautiful...
         B-but, of course, you're always pretty !! What am I saying ? It's
         stupid.
    
         Feena
         Strange, isn't it... Things that we usually don't say seem appropriate
         at this very moment...
    
         Justin
         Feena...
    
         Feena
         Justin, you know... You're very special to me...
    
         [BONK !]
    
         Justin
         Hey ? What was that noise ???
    
         Feena
         What ? What's happening ? Something hit us !!
    
         Justin
         Are you okay ? You're not wounded ?
    
         Girl
         A..ah...

         Feena
         Kyaa ! Justin !
    
         Justin
         Wait a minute ! I don't understand anything, what are you talking
         about ?
    
         Feena
         Yes ! He's right ! Get away from Justin !
    
         Girl
         I come from a nearby island... Pirates have attacked us...
    
         Justin
         What ? Pirates ?
    
         Girl
         Yes, but all of us have been taken by them... Only I managed to
         escape. Pleeeaase, Mr Hero, save them !!
    
         Justin
         It's terrible, Feena ! We gotta help them !
    
         Feena
         Wait a minute... Where's that island ? There's no island around
         here...
    
         Girl
         That island over there... Everyone is held prisoner on those mean
         pirates' island... Please Mr Hero ! Save them !
    
         Justin
         Let me handle this ! Mr Justin the hero is gonna beat up those mean
         pirates !

         Stop flirting ! Justin ! We were just about to...!
    
         Justin
         We're landing on this island ! Let's go Feena !

              It looks like they constructed some sort of special equipment
              right on top of the Enjule Ruins. I can also feel Gaia's power
              emanating from within....

              We have just occupied the command center! The steam cannon
              engine room has also been secured! It's only a matter of time
              before we secure the control room!

              from Col. Myuren.
    
              Justin
              Kuudetaa-! Myuren no yatsu nani yatterunda!?
              Coup de 'etat? What the heck's that Myuren up to now?

              Hmm... looks like you've come to interfere in the army's
              business again. However, that's all water under the bridge as
              far as we're concerned, just as long as long as you don't
              stand in our way.

              With this coup de 'etat, Col. Myuren wanted the army to start
              a new life so to speak.

              Justin
              ... ... ....
              If you talk to Leen again, she'll say that Baal went down the
              passage and is now planning to reunite all the sacred spirit
              stones into one. Once this deed is achieved, Gaia will be
              resurrected. She'll then implore Justin and Feena to stop him.

         Soldier
         Lt. Feena, you have just been ordered to go to the operations room
         right away so you can be briefed on your next mission.
    
         Justin
         What the-? Feena's a lieutenant?!!!
    
         Feena
         Now just hold on a second. Is this some kind of joke?
    
         Soldier
         Oh no, ma'am, this isn't a joke! We have been given specific
         instructions that as of today, we were all supposed to treat you, Miss
         Feena, as a lieutenant. I'm sure that the situation would make much
         more sense if you talked to Col. Myuren. Why don't you go and ask him
         about it?
    
         Justin
         Well it's definitely strange for Myuren to come up with this kind of a
         decision all of a sudden.... What the heck's he scheming now?
    
         Rapp
         And on top of all of this, Gaia's just been resurrected too.... So what
         are we going to do now, Jus'?
    
         Justin
         ... I'm not so sure myself.... Well, first things first! Let's go ahead
         and see what Myuren has to say!
    
         *** The Operations Room
    
         Myuren
         Gaia's starting to multiply himself.... We need to make our move--and
         fast.
    
         Leen
         At this rate, Gaia's going to cause incredible amounts of damage to
         the neighboring vicinities... Col. Myuren.
    
         Myuren
         That's right. Gaia needs to keep absorbing tremendous amounts of
         energy to maintain his ongoing evolution.
    
         Leen
         Given his current trajectory, Jilpadoon is the next projected area
         from which Gaia will will start absorbing energy.
    
         Myuren
         However... without the Sacred Spirit Stone... I don't think there's any
         way that we can save the city.
    
         Soldier
         We are now commencing landing procedures for the Flying Battleship
         Leonrotte. Our landing site will be the Army Camp at Ruzette Mountain.
    
         Myuren
         Okay....
    
         Justin
         Hey, Myuren! What's this thing going on about Feena being a
         lieutenant?!
    
         Myuren
         As you very well know, Gaia's resurrection has left us facing very
         adverse conditions. Following our withdrawal from Miltary Fortress J,
         we decided to establish a camp here in the Ruzette Mountains to serve
         as our front line base for tactical operations. The way we in the army
         look at it, we only have one shot to turn the tide in our favor.
    
         This... is just like what exactly happened to the Ancient Civilization.
         Once a sacred spirit stone is absorbed into that thing's body, it
         breaks apart and dissolves.
    
         Our plan now is to combine the power of the Ancient Civilization and
         the technology of the Army--mainly the Steam-powered Cannon. The
         cannon will be used to stop Gaia in his tracks. However, without the
         Sacred Spirit Stone, it is now essential for us to have the help of
         the Kouyokujin more than ever.
         Which now brings me to the question at hand. Will you lend us your
         strength, Lt. Feena...?

             The Choices That We Make
    
    
         Justin
         What the heck's that Myuren up to, making Feena a lieutenant and
         all that?
    
         Rapp
         Say whatever you want to say, but where'd that Feena go anyway?
    
         Justin
         Well, she said something about going on ahead to the Officer's Tent
         before us.... It looks like Leen wants to talk about this whole
         lieutenant situation too....
    
         Riethe
         If I remember correctly, Leen said something about meeting her in
         the Tactical Operations Tent.
    
         Justin
         At any rate, let's go ahead and see what's going on.
    
         *** The Officers' Tent
    
         Feena
         I'm sorry for going on ahead without you guys.... I just needed some
         time to myself to think things out. Hey Justin, I'd really like to
         talk to my sister right now.
    
         Justin
         That's right! I'm pretty sure that Leen will agree that this whole
         lieutenant mess isn't going to work. Anyway, she told us to meet
         her at the Tactical Operations Tent so let's just head over there
         now.
    
         I normally don't do side conversations but it's quite rare to get
         any laughs at this point in the game. That's why I'll go ahead and
         do the "parrot scenario." (Go ahead and talk to that black bird).
    
         Rapp
         Hey look, Jasu! It's a parrot bird (actually, the darned thing
         looks more like a crow to me). These birds can remember what people
         say and say it right back.
    
         Justin
         Eh? Really? Alright! Now then, what can we make it remember...?
    
         Choices:
         1. Go to hell, Myuren!
         2. Justin, you're the greatest!
    
         *** If you picked choice 1...
    
         Justin
         Okay! Here we go.... Go to hell, Myur--....
    
         Rapp
         So Jasu, just what exactly are you going to have that bird
         remember?
    
         Bird
         Go to hell, Jasu! Go to hell, Jasu! Go to hell, Jasu!
    
         Justin
         Ack!
    
         Rapp
         WA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!! This is your finest work yet! That's what you get
         for trying to act like some punk kid.
    
         Bird
         Go to hell, Jus' ! Go to hell, Jus' ! Go to hell, Jus' !
    
         *** If you picked choice 2...
    
         Bird
         Justin, you're the greatest! Justin, you're the greatest!
    
         Justin
         Y-Yeah, that's right!

         Hey you... what the heck do you think you're doing? That bird's not
         supposed to be used for fun and games you know.
    
         Bird
         Justin, you're the greatest! Justin, you're the greatest!
    
         *** The Tactical Operations Test
    
         Feena
         Leen....
    
         Leen
         I've been expecting you, Feena. You men can just go ahead and wait
         outside.
    
         Soldiers
         Yes, ma'am. Please excuse us.
    
         Leen
         There's something that I've been meaning to talk to you about,
         Feena.
    
         Even up to this point, it was never Col. Myuren's intention for
         Shogun Baal to gain possession of the Sacred Spirit Stones. Right
         now, he's been working around the clock with no rest so he can keep
         on overseeing the Army's operations. He's doing this because just
         like you, he doesn't want to see the world destroyed either.
    
         Now I'm pretty sure that you're aware of this too but with Gaia's
         resurrection, the Sacred Spirit Stones have always been an
         essential component for the protection of our world. However, now
         that the stones have been destroyed, it is of the utmost importance
         that we use the powers that we possess.
    
         And that's why I'm begging you right now Feena! Please lend us your
         strength! I just want to see the colonel fill of energy once again,
         not like the troubled person that he is right now!
    
         Justin
         Now hold on just a second Leen. Isn't Myuren planning on just
         abandoning Jilpadon? I would think that saving that city would be
         the main reason why Feena should lend you her strength in the first
         place.
    
         Feena
         That's right, Leen! I have to go to Jilpadon so I can help Justin
         save the people of the city.
    
         Leen
         I know that the situation with Jilpadon is no laughing matter, but
         Gaia is expanding at an incredibly alarming rate. According to our
         calculations, Jilpadon is doomed no matter what. It's just a matter
         of time before that city is going to be under extreme danger.... I
         don't think that you should go there.
    
         Justin
         But that fact right there is the very reason why we have to go! If
         you're intent on saving the world, it doesn't make sense to just
         abandon the people of Jilpadon! Open your eyes, Leen! You're being
         taken in by Myuren's sweet talk....
    
         Leen
         Don't even dare say anything bad about Sir Myuren!
    
         He always tells me that it's our responsibility to protect our
         Mother Earth, even at the cost of our own lives. That's why I don't
         even care what happens to me. I'm willing to risk my very life
         for....
    
         Feena
         But you're wrong, Leen! If you and everybody else sacrifice their
         lives for the sake of the world, who'll be left to enjoy the world
         that you just saved?
    
         Justin
         Before we even think about saving this world, we need to help the
         people of Jilpadon first. Let's go everyone.
    
         *** Talk to Leen again...
    
         Leen
         I used to despise the fact that I was a Kouyokujin. This was a part
         of my existence that I always wanted to erase. God knows how many
         time I just wanted to get rid of my wings. But then... the colonel
         told me how beautiful they were when he first saw them... my two
         shimmering wings which I've always try to keep inside of me.... Those
         words saved me at a time when I was just about ready to throw
         everything away.... This time, I want to save the colonel.
    
         Feena
         Leen....

                    The True Meaning of Power
    
    
         Justin
         ... ... ....
    
         Rapp
         Is there something wrong, Jus'? You've gotten quiet all of a
         sudden.
    
         Justin
         It's just that it actually IS quiet... almost too quiet! I don't even
         hear the slightest sound!
    
         Rapp
         H-Hey now! Don't tell me that everyone's already bitten the dust
         over here?!
    
         Riethe
         I don't think that's the case. I'm sure that it's because everybody
         knows that Gaia will be attacking this place pretty soon.
    
         Justin
         At any rate, I'm pretty sure that Gido and the others are worried.
         Let's hurry up and see what's going on.... (Earth shakes). O-Oh no!
         Don't tell me we're too late!!!
    
         At this point, Gaia's tentacles wreak havoc all over the city,
         turning people and objects into stone....
    
         Justin
         Th-This is Gaia's power? Damn it! It sure didn't take him that long
         now did it?
    
         Feena
         I can't believe it.... Jilpadon's been destroyed in just an instant!
    
         Rapp
         H-Hey, Jus'! D-Do you think that the people here have been really
         done for this time?
    
         Justin
         Th-That can't be!!! Hurry guys, let's start looking for them!!!
    
         Voice
         Aaaaah! No! Stay back!!!
    
         Aaaaah! Stay back!!! Somebody help us!!! Please!!!
    
         Justin
         Th-There's still some people left! Look, over there!
    
         Feena
         Let's hurry up and go everyone!
    
         Beat the morphed Gaia monsters....
    
         Person
         Thank you very much! You just got us through one heck of a tight
         spot right there.
    
         Justin
         What happened to everybody else? Have they really been killed by
         Gaia...?
    
         Person
         No, they haven't. Everyone's actually seeking refuge at the
         residence of the Moge people.
    
         We were actually on our way there when these monsters just started
         attacking us all of a sudden. It's a good thing you came along.
    
         Justin
         That's great! So there still are people left in here!
    
         Okay, we're going to look around and make sure that nobody else
         needs help. We'll join the rest of your people once we're done.
    
         Feena
         You should be getting on your way too.
    
         Person
         Yeah, you're right. Thanks again, everyone.
    
         Go further into the town and...
    
         Voice
         Feena!
    
         Feena
         Leen! So you've actually come to help us!
    
         Leen?
    
         Leen
         ... ... ....
    
         At 1400 hours today, Tactical Battle Plan 01025 will commence. This
         operation will be known as "The Earth's Great Renewal."
    
         Our two operatives, 2nd Lieutenant Feena and 1st Lieutenant Leen
         will be assigned in front of Cannon Number 3, where they will
         remain on standby and await further orders once the mission goes
         underway.
    
         Justin
         Leen!!!
    
         Feena
         Leen... why can't you understand...?
    
         Leen
         This is an order, Feena! You are now a subordinate of Col. Myuren....
    
         Justin
         Stop this nonsense and open your eyes, Leen!
    
         Voice
         Mommy! Mommy, help meeee!
    
         Mother
         Help! Somebody, please save my son!
    
         Justin
         W-What the.... It sounds like somebody's being attacked by monsters
         again!
    
         Rapp
         Hey, Jus'!
    
         Justin
         Yeah I got it, Rapp! Sorry Leen, but we'll just have to talk later!
    
         *** Save the Kid....
    
         Rapp
         You okay, squirt? Hmm... it doesn't look like you got hurt.
    
         Kid
         Yeah, thanks! You guys sure are strong!
    
         Justin
         Heh, just leave everything to us!
    
         Rapp
         Yeah, we're gonna bust up whatever flunkies Gaia sends over here!!!
    
         Feena
         Anyway, it's really dangerous to stay out here. You should head on
         to the Moge's place, okay?
    
         Mother
         I see, the Moge's place you say? Well then, you guys take ca...
         t-take c-caaa...aaaaah!
    
         Justin
         ...? What's wrong?
    
         Rapp
         H-Hey, Justin! Right behind you!
    
         Justin
         W-What the.... Th-This thing's come back again?!
    
         Rapp
         Shit! This thing's the same as the monster that attacked Kawa
         Village!!!
    
         Leen
         That's right.... There's no way that you guys can defeat Gaia right
         now.
    
         Justin
         Leen!
    
         Feena
         Leen?!
    
         Leen
         The responsibility to defeat Gaia rests on those who have wings,
         the Kouyokujin.... That would be you and me, Feena.
    
         *** Leen takes charge....
    
         Leen
         ... Do you understand now, Feena...? This is the reason why we exist....
    
         Our purpose in life is to fight Gaia.
    
         Feena
         ... ... ....
    
         Leen
         The colonel's waiting, Feena.... Let's go.
    
         Justin
         Now wait just a second, Leen!
    
         Didn't you just see what the people of this city are going through?
         What the heck are you thinking?
    
         I don't exactly know what Myuren's plan is but if he's not willing
         to save Jilpadon, then do you honestly think that he'll be willing
         to save the world?
    
         I can't think of anyone who wouldn't be saddened by having to
         sacrifice an entire city. He must be lying!!!
    
         Leen
         You're wrong... you're wrong, Justin! The colonel... the colonel just
         wants to get things back to the way they were before.... Huh...?
         Aaaaaah!
    
         Feena
         Leen! Hang in there, Leen! Open your eyes! Please!
    
         Rapp
         Hey guys, I think it's dangerous for us to stay here.
    
         Justin
         You're right. Okay guys, let's go head on to that refuge they're
         talking about. Give me a hand over here, Rapp.
    
         Rapp
         Haah? What are you talking about, Jus'? That bitch's responsible
         for thrashing my village!
    
         Justin
         She was only a victim of circumstances during that time, Rapp!
         Besides, didn't she save our hides back then?
    
         Feena
         Please, Rapp! I'm begging you!
    
         Rapp
         ... ... ....
    
         Aw crap! I guess there's nothing we can do about it. Okay, Jus'.
         Turn over this way.
    
         *** The Moge Residence
    
         Justin
         Alright, Feena! There's actually a doctor over here!
    
         Riethe
         The doctor says that Leen just lost consciousness. She should be
         coming around pretty soon.
    
         Feena
         I was really worried about my sister for a while there... thanks
         everyone. Thank you too, Rapp. I really appreciate it.
    
         Rapp
         Urgh! Ah... er... it was nothing... really.
    
         Justin
         Hmm.... I'm really at a loss here as far as what we're going to do
         with Gaia. I mean, the thing just keeps reviving itself every time
         we destroy it.
    
         Riethe
         I think Leen's right as far as the Kouyokujin being the only ones
         capable of permanently getting rid of Gaia.
    
         Feena
         But... I'm not sure if I possess the same strength that my sister
         has.
    
         Justin
         Damn it! What should we do? What can we.....
    
         Person 1
         I guess all we can do is just wait for death to come.
    
         Person 2
         Hmph, once these things start attacking us over here, it'll all be
         over anyway.
    
         Person 3
         Why? Somebody please tell me why we have to die just like this?
    
         Person 4
         Oh well, it's okay. Now that the city's been destroyed, there
         wouldn't be any way for us to live decently anyway.
    
         Justin
         N-Now hold on just a second, everyone!
    
         How can you just give up like this?
    
         We've come all the way over here just to protect you guys! I mean,
         we'll definitely help you out, that's for sure! That's why....
    
         That's why you shouldn't lose hope!
    
         Feena
         Justin....
    
         Chit
         Is everyone alright?
    
         That's good. It looks like everyone over here's okay so far.
    
         Huh? You're that red-haired adventurer from before! What are you
         doing here now? Did you just stop by on the way to one of your
         adventures?
    
         Justin
         Not really.... We just hurried over here as soon as we found out that
         Gaia was going to attack Jilpadon.
    
         Chit
         Eh?! Really?! You mean you're not running away even though
         something this terrible is going on?
    
         Justin
         Of course! By the way, Chit... I'm really sorry that we weren't able
         to join up with you guys earlier....
    
         Chit
         Don't worry about it. Luckily, our chief is very trustworthy so he
         didn't bail out on us. He's actually not here 'cause he went to one
         of the other towns to buy us supplies and rations.
    
         I'm not so sure what to do myself... but I feel stronger already,
         just cause everyone decided to come here.
    
         Feena
         Well, it's quite a relief to know that Gido's safe.
    
         Chit
         I don't think this is a time to feel relieved! I mean, it's only a
         matter of time before a lot more enemies start coming here....
    
         Justin
         There's no point in losing hope! The main reason we've decided to
         come over here is to protect you guys!
    
         Riethe
         But Justin, if you don't possess the power of the Kouyokujin, then
         Gaia will just keep reviving itself no matter how many times you
         defeat it.
    
         Feena
         The power of the Kouyokujin.... My sister said that we possess these
         wings so we can fight.... We're supposed to  exist to fight... do we
         really exist only to fight?!
    
         Justin... do I... ... .... Do I only really exist to fight?! And can I
         actually use the same power that my sister possesses?
    
         Justin
         Feena....
    
         Feena
         No... that's not right.... I exist, but not just to fight.... I exist
         because I have to protect.
    
         I want to protect you, Justin... my sister... and everyone who's here
         right now!!!
    
         *** Feena spreads her wings of light....
    
         Justin
         Feena... those wings.... They're wings of light....
    
         Riethe
         It appears as if a new power has just been born inside of you,
         Feena....
    
         That, I believe, is the very same power that sealed Gaia's strength
         and imprisoned him.
    
         In order to free this world from Gaia's evil clutches, you must be
         able to understand and grasp that power at any cost
    
         Feena
         This power...?
    
         A foreboding beam of light covers the city....
    
         Person 1
         Aaaaah! There it is again! That light! It's going to turn us to
         stone!!!!
    
         Justin
         We'll need to use every bit of our strength to bring Gaia down!
         Let's go guys!
    
         Chit
         I saw Gaia from one of the vantage points just a while back!!! If
         we don't do anything soon....
    
         Justin
         Don't worry. We'll defend the entrance to these dwellings from
         Gaia's attacks!
    
         Rapp
         It's here, Jus'! Get ready!!!
    
         Feena
         Let's go, Justin.!
    
         Justin
         Very well then, this'll be just like before. Let's do the dance
         with this thing one more time!
    
         *** Defeat the Gaia Battler
    
         Rapp
         Shit! It doesn't look like we can get rid of these guys! They just
         keep coming, and coming! What are we gonna do now, Jus' ?!!!
    
         Justin
         Well, we can't just withdraw from here! We need to protect the
         people of the city! Damn it! We'll just have to keep cutting them
         down no matter how many times it takes!!!
    
         Feena
         Justin! Lend me your strength! We must protect these people no
         matter what! There's no way that we can lose to Gaia!!!

         Feeeenaaaa!!!!

         J-Justin... Feena! Could this power be coming from both of them...?
    
         Major meltdown follows....

         Hey, Jus' ! Can you hear me?
    
         Justin
         U...Ungh.... Damn you... Gaia....
    
         Rapp
         What the-. Hey idiot! Open your eyes!
    
         Justin
         What happened to Gaia? Hey Feena, are you okay?
    
         W-what's going on here?
    
         Riethe
         All of the attacks that Gaia has been carrying out on this city
         have just been stopped.
    
         A new power has just manifested itself within Feena.
    
         Leen
         Justin... Feena....
    
         Justin
         Leen....
    
         Leen
         I never should have lost hope.... You were able to save a city that
         our military strategies have already abandoned and considered
         doomed.
    
         I guess I should be grateful.... You have made me realize that I must
         now follow a different path than the one I have previously chosen.
    
         I'll go report back to the colonel now. I advise you not to leave
         this town until the army makes it move.
    
         Just leave everything to me....
    
         Feena
         Leen?!
    
         Leen
         Farewell, Justin... Feena....
    
         Rapp
         Anyway guys,  defeating Gaia just like that was mighty impressive,
         he, he!
    
         Oh, by the way, those Moge guys just set up a tent for us!
    
         It should be pretty close to the entrance. I heard it's quite
         lavish too, he, he. Anyway, let's go check it out.
    
         Feena
         I... I am pretty tired, now that you mention it.... Let's go Justin....
    
         Go to the tent
    
         Rapp
         So this is that tent those Moge guys aset up for us, huh?
    
         Well, now that we just beat the crap out of that cursed Gaia, I
         think I'll catch a few winks here myself.
    
         *** The Garlysle Army Field Camp
    
         Myuren
         Why did you come back alone, Leen? You're mission was to convince
         Feena to join us so we can carry on with our plan.
    
         Leen
         ... ... ....
    
         ... ... ... Col. Myuren, could it be possible that we were mistaken?
    
         Myuren
         And just what is that supposed to mean?
    
         Leen
         The power of the Kouyokujin in itself is not enough to defeat Gaia.
    
         The power that I saw Feena use to protect the people of Jilpadon
         was different from mine.
    
         That wasn't just the power of the Kouyokujin that I saw.... It was
         something else... something even more powerful.
    
         Myuren
         ... ... ....
    
         Leen
         The only true power that can save this world is that same power
         that I saw Justin and Feena use!
    
         And this is the power that we must search for, Col. Myuren!
    
         Myuren
         Understood, 1st Lieutenant Leen....
    
         Leen
         Then that means....
    
         Myuren
         The plan still remains the same! I expect you to have Feena here
         with us tomorrow no matter what!
    
         Leen
         Colonel! I'm begging you! Please try to understand what I'm trying
         to say!!!
    
         Myuren
         The only one who doesn't understand what's going on here is you,
         Leen!!!
    
         Leen
         A-Ah-!
    
         Myuren
         We don't have time to follow these tales of yours about your
         dreams! In order to defeat Gaia, it is imperative that we have the
         power of both Kouyokujins behind us!
    
         At this point, there's just no other way to save the world! Don't
         you understand this?!
    
         Leen
         B-But....
    
         Myuren
         We all have, at one point or  another, committed transgressions. I
         don't think there's anyway you can live in this world otherwise.
         But despite the fact that this world is so full of sin.... I still
         want to protect it.
    
         Leen
         ... ... ....
    
         Myuren
         This is what I need you to understand, Leen. Even those wings of
         light behind you  are a symbol of these very transgressions as
         well.
    
         Leen
         My wings... are a symbol... of transgression?
    
         Myuren
         Please lend us your strength, Leen. We need to have the power of
         the Kouyokujin behind us--yours and Feena's.
    
         Leen
         I... understand... Col. Myuren. I will act in accordance with the plan
         starting tomorrow.
    
         Myuren
         That's the reason I've chosen you as my top aide. Very well then,
         I'll leave everything in your hands.

         Feena
         Within me exists great power....
    
         But I don't know what to do with it....
    
         Hey, please tell me, Justin. Why were the Kouyokujin born?
    
         Is it just like what my sister said? Do we only exist to fight
         Gaia? I mean that's just....
    
         Justin
         I'm sorry, Feena. I don't know the answer to your question either.
    
         But don't worry about it too much. With the military and Gaia
         staying put for now, we have a lot of time to think things through.

         Hey, Jus' ! The army's just been mobilized! It looks like they're
         headed East.
    
         Justin
         What?!!! But the army's plan isn't supposed to work without Feena!
    
         Feena
         I-It can't be! Is my sister planning on just going ahead by
         herself?!
    
         Justin! You've got to help me stop her!
    
         Justin
         Of course! Now let me see... hmm... East you say, right? That's
         basically right around the Ruzette area... they must be headed to
         Military Fortress J.  Let's get going guys!
    
         *** Ruzette Mountain
    
         Riethe
         What's this...? It looks like the monsters here have been influenced
         by Gaia!
    
         Justin
         The monsters are under Gaia's influence? What's that supposed to
         mean?
    
         Riethe
         Gaia's energy is affecting the monsters in the surrounding areas.
         They're basically turning into Gaia monsters.
    
         Rapp
         It looks like they've gotten stronger too.
    
         Riethe
         Gaia's going to undergo his own transformation pretty soon. We must
         stop him before this happens.
    
         The second half of Ruzette Mountain; ground starts shaking....
    
         Riethe
         What the.... Justin! This doesn't look good! Gaia's undergoing his
         transformation!
    
         Justin
         What?!!!
    
         *** Military Fortress J

         Gaia has just started moving again! It looks like he's changing
         into his second form!
    
         Myuren
         Alright! Everyone, let's set the plan into action.
    
         Soldier
         Colonel! It's Lt. Leen!!!
    
         Myuren
         What's wrong?!!!
    
         Soldier
         L-Lt. Leen.... Lt. Leen just headed for the Number 3 Cannon's tower....
    
         Myuren
         What?!!! I haven't given the order to move out yet !!! What could
         she be thinking ?!!! Leen!!!
    
         Soldier
         We have an incoming report! It looks like Gaia's moving toward a
         nearby location!
    
         ... Colonel! Col. Myuren! Gaia's main body is heading towards
         Military Fortress J!!!
    
         Myuren
         Huh?! I can't believe this is happening at a time like this !!!

          MYUREN
          Is there still no response? Are you meaning to tell me that Leen
          hasn't established communications with us yet? At this rate we
          won't be able to make our move!!!
    
          JUSTIN
          Hey, Myuren!!! What's the meaning of this?! Where the heck is Leen
          at?!
    
          MYUREN
          Justin?! What's Feena doing here?! Leen's all by herself over at....
          O-Oh no! This can't be...!
    
          LEEN
          This is Lt. Leen, reporting in.... As of this moment, I have seized
          control of all the cannons surrounding Military Fortress J.
    
          I repeat, I have now seized control of all the cannons surrounding
          Military Fortress J.
    
          MYUREN
          Where are you, Leen?! Come back! Come back over here, Leeeen!!!
    
          LEEN
          So you're there... Feena. And Justin too.... I can feel your presence.
    
          I'm here because I would like to help all of you.... Once again, it
          looks like we've unknowingly set yet another disaster in motion.
    
          And just like before, everything rests on the power of the
          Kouyokjin who, according to legend, appear to be destined to meet a
          sorrowful fate.
    
          That's why I've decided to be here... so I can stop this operation
          that we've decided to follow.
    
          I do not possess the power that can save all of us. The true power
          that can save this world lies within Feena.... And you too, Justin.
    
          These next lines have no text with them so I'm not sure how
          accurate I'm going to be...
    
          However, at this point, the power you possess still hasn't reached
          its full strength so it won't be strong enough....
          That's why I'm going to buy you some time. This is the only chance
          that we'll ever get to save this world. The existence of human
          beings may be marred by mistakes and wrongdoings.... And these are
          the very same wrongdoings that spawned Gaia....
    
          Alright! The text is back!
    
          You said it yourself, Col. Myuren. These wings are also a symbol of
          human transgression and wrongdoing.
    
          Perhaps you can make light of the crimes of humanity that have been
          persecuting you.
    
          But even though I'm tainted by these wings of mine, I'm still
          capable of doing the right thing.
    
          MYUREN
          What are you talking about, Leen?! Stop this nonsense! I'm to blame
          for all of this!
    
          I realized that your wings were giving you so much grief so I
          wanted to free you from all of that sorrow. Believe me, that was
          all that I wanted for you.
    
          LEEN
          To the people of the world... listen to me. Please do not repeat the
          same mistakes that have been done in the past!
    
          For the sake of our world, you must find an alternative path to
          that which we have always chosen! The person capable of finding
          this new path... is you, Justin. I'm confident that you will be able
          to trace the path that will save our world.
    
          It is imperative that you find the answer to this alternative path
          so our world won't be destined to a sorrowful fate!!!
    
          JUSTIN
          Please wait, Leen! Tell me! What should I do?!!!
    
          LEEN
          Col. Myuren... please listen to my final words.... I just want you to
          know... that I love you more than anyone else.... I truly... and deeply
          do....
    
          MYUREN
          Leeeeeeeeeeen!!!!
    
          At this point, you'll regain control of Justin. Go ahead and talk
          to Myuren and your party members....
    
          JUSTIN
          Hey, Myuren! Where's Leen at right now? We must go over there no
          matter what!

          MYUREN
          You'll need to exit this room and find the entrance to the Steam
          Cannon Engine Room. Go in there and find the exit that leads to one
          of the steam cannons which we've locked on to fire at Gaia. That's
          where you'll find Leen....
    
          JUSTIN
          You should come with me too, Myuren! You're the only one who can
          stop her!!!
    
          MYUREN
          I can't leave here! I have a duty to attend to! If I leave now,
          nobody's going to oversee the army's operations!
    
          JUSTIN
          You stubborn fool! I can't believe you're still spouting that
          garbage! Don't you understand how Leen feels...?
    
          MYUREN
          Shut up!!! You have no right to be pointing a finger at me!!! Now
          then, there's a passage way that you can reach from the comand
          center. That passageway has only one door so you won't miss it!
          Leen should be on the other side. If you want to go then you can go
          on ahead by yourself....
    
          FEENA
          I can't believe it... Leen....
    
          JUSTIN
          Feena! Hey, Feena! Get a hold of yourself!
    
          FEENA
          Leen's... Leen's going to....

          RIETHE
          The Kouyokujin's power, whether it be of one or two doesn't make a
          difference.... I wonder what Leen meant as far as an alternative
          path.... What could she have seen?
    
          Once again, the power of stopping Gaia rests on the Kouyokujin.... It
          doesn't look like anyone can run away from the sorrowful destiny
          that fate has ordained.
    
          RAPP

          have to stop her!
    
          *** Once you get to the control room, the guard will tell you to go
          straight through the room and exit at the other side to find her....

          Boy, that Feena's sure been sulking in that tent since yesterday.
          Well, I guess it can't be helped--her having lost a loved one and
          all. I guess the best thing we can do for her now is just give her
          some space. Just make sure that you go and cheer her up later on
          okay? I don't think Riethe and I can do much as far as that's
          concerned.
    
          RIETHE
          The radiance of one of the Kouyokujin has just been lost to us
          forever. This is quite unfortunate, but it doesn't change the
          situation that we are currently facing...  even though the will to
          face the future for some of us may have.... Now then... the wheels of
          fate rests on both you and Feena, Justin. I believe that the
          strength of your convictions will decide whether we change the
          future that has been ordained for us or not. At this moment, the
          strength of Feena's will is very weak. It is up to you to give her
          convictions strength yet once again.
    
          MYUREN
          Feena must be in here... I would like to talk to her.
    
          JUSTIN
          You jackass!!! Didn't I just tell you that Feena doesn't want to
          see anyone right now?! This is all your fault!
    
          MYUREN
          We don't have much time left. Move out of the way, Justin.
    
          JUSTIN
          You must be crazy if you think I'm going to move out of here!
          Obviously, it's not enough for you to have gotten Leen killed! Now
          you want to get Feena killed too! You should at least try to
          understand Feena's feelings and....
    
          MYUREN
          Shut your all-knowing mouth, Justin!!! Do you really think you
          understand the purpose behind Leen and Feena's existence?!!! Do you
          truly understand what those wings were meant to be for?!!! You
          should be ashamed of putting your petty thoughts ahead of the
          continued existence of humanity.
    
          *** Inside the tent

          And in the end... I'll die right? Just like the legend says.... I saw
          it in those murals.
    
          MYUREN
          ... That is a possibility. I can't make any guarantees concerning
          your survival.
    
          JUSTIN
          Cut it out, MYUREN! Are you spewing the same garbage again?! Don't
          involve Feena in your schemes any further!
    
          MYUREN
          We will carry out the plan first thing tomorrow morning. You have
          until then to decide. I won't force you to make your decision.
    
          JUSTIN
          Now just hold on a second, MYUREN! Haven't you forgotten Leen's
          final words?! We need to find a new way to deal with this problem!
    
          MYUREN
          Shut up, Justin! And just where do you expect to find this new path
          that she was talking about?! Do you even know where to start
          looking?!

          MYUREN
          I will keep on fighting no matter what! Besides fighting, I don't

          What? It looks like you can't give us an answer can you? Do you
          intend to have Leen's sacrifice just be in vain?!
    
          FEENA
          Stop it!!! Leen... it's truly sad how we've reverted to our petty
          bickering yet once again.... Please come back to us....
    
          MYUREN
          Even now, there is simply no way for us to bring Leen back. Please
          don't forget this.... (He leaves)
    
          FEENA
          Justin.... Does the new path that my sister talked about really
          exist?
    
          JUSTIN
          Of course! And I'm definitely gonna find it too!
    
          FEENA
          Now I see! MYUREN was right after all! Why couldn't you say
          anything a while ago?! ... ... .... I'm sorry, Justin... I just don't know
          what to do anymore....
    
          JUSTIN
          There's no point in beating yourself to the ground. We... still
          have time, you know.
    
          FEENA
          It's really strange.... For some reason, I can't stop my legs from
          shaking.... Justin, I'm scared.... I don't want to die....
    
          *** Talk to Feena again and she'll go on feeling sorry for herself for
          not being capable of doing anything. She'll apologize to her sister
          for her ineptitude and mutter that she doesn't want to die once
          again. She'll eventually just keep to herself and you can go ahead
          and leave the tent.
    
          RAPP
          Uh... well you know, Feena's probably not the only one who's saying
          that kind of stuff. At any rate, just cheer up, Jasu!
    
          RIETHE
          This is the first time I've ever seen Feena speak like that....
    
          JUSTIN
          Feena.... Please tell me, Leen. What should I do?
    
          CHIT
          Ah! Mister red-haired adventurer!
    
          JUSTIN
          Chit!
    
          CHIT
          What's wrong? You don't look well. That gloomy look you have
          doesn't really slide with young girls, you know.
    
          JUSTIN
          Ha, ha, ha.... Even though the city's gone through all of this, it
          doesn't look like the Moge people have been discouraged at all,
          huh? I wonder what Guido would say if he was here.... Hey that's
          right! Did Guido ever come back from that trip of his? Maybe he can
          give me some advice about what I should do....
    
          CHIT
          Actually, our chief has just returned. It looks like he wants to
          talk to you guys too.
    
          JUSTIN
          Alright! Let's go meet Guido then. That guy knows everything. He
          should be able to tell us what we should do, I just know it....
    
          *** Go to Guido's quarters
    
          GUIDO
          I've heard of what happened. Looks like you've come to the right
          place, Justin.
    
          JUSTIN
          Please tell me what to do Guido! The way things are going right
          now, it looks like Feena may have to sacrifice her own life to save
          the world. ... We have to find a way to help her! Leen mentioned
          something about another path but I just can't figure the answer
          out. I don't think my strength alone is enough to get the job done.
    
          GUIDO
          As long as Gaia is alive, every single one of us is in danger. Now
          then, surely you're not planning on undertaking this venture alone,
          are you?! It is imperative that you get some assistance during
          times like this.
    
          JUSTIN
          Get some assistance...?
    
          GUIDO
          You mean nobody has told you about this? A person strength becomes
          much greater when he fights for the sake of others compared to when
          he fights for his sake alone. If you fight for the sake of the
          person you hold dearest in your heart, then your greatest power
          will reveal itself.
    
          JUSTIN
          The person that I hold dearest in my heart...? I see... that would be
          Feena....
    
          GUIDO
          Bingo! And once you understand this concept, then there isn't
          anything in this world that you can't do. I personally think that
          you and Feena can do just about anything when you join your hearts
          together. Why, weren't both of you responsible for saving
          Jilpadoon?
    
          JUSTIN
          That's right... I didn't do all that by myself... Feena and I did it
          together. Why didn't I see that before? Feena and I did save the
          city together. Thanks, Guido! I owe you one! Let me try talking to
          her just one more time!
    
          *** Back at the tent...
    
          JUSTIN
          What the... Feena's....

          Hey, Justin! It looks like she just beat it!

         Hey, Jus'! It doesn't look like she's here!
    
         Justin
         Huh, what's that...? This is the Hero's Bracelet that we got as a
         keepsake from Daito Village. Oh no, it can't be.... She's at the Army
         Camp, Rapp!

         Hey, Feena! Wait up!
    
         You don't have to go, Feena! I'm going to stop Gaia!
    
         Myuren
         I understand how you feel, Justin. But your strength alone isn't
         enough to stop Gaia.
    
         Feena
         Thanks, Justin... for everything. You handed Baal the spirit stone in
         order to protect me.... This wonderful gesture of yours truly makes me
         happy. However, because of this... Gaia has been resurrected and
         several people have already died... including my sister. Now it's my
         turn to protect everyone from Gaia's clutches... the people... this
         world... and you too....
    
         Justin
         Please wait, Feena! I'm the one who gave Baal the spirit stone so this
         is all my fault, not yours! That's why I ....
    
         *** Feena knocks Justin down with a flash of her power
    
         Justin
         Aaaah!
    
         Feena
         This is the power that I possess.... Besides myself, there are no
         other Kouyokujin left.... The way things are going right now, Gaia
         will soon destroy everything. And there really isn't anybody else in
         this world who can stop him.... Defeating Gaia... is the Kouyokujin's
         responsibility... and as the last remaining survivor... it is my
         responsibility too. That's why I... I.... Ju... Justin! Farewell....
         Please don't forget me, okay?
    
         *** Feena and Myuren board the military's airship leaving Justin in the
         dust
    
         Justin
         Rapp, Riethe... let's go....
    
         Rapp
         Hah? What do you mean "let's go?" Go where? We're gonna go where
         Feena's headed to, right? Tell me that's where you want to go?!
    
         Justin
         ... ... .....
    
         Rapp
         Hey! Say something! Where are we gonna go?!
    
         Justin
         I... I can't protect Feena.... I couldn't even stop her.... I just
         don't have the strength to....
    
         Rapp
         ... ... .... (in shock) You stupid jackass!!! Surely, you must be
         kidding! Do you even hear what you're saying?! Come on, Jus'! We need
         to go after Feena!!!
    
         ... ... ... Shit! What a sissy.... I guess I misjudged you, oh great
         "Justin". Hmph, whatever... I don't care anymore. You...y-you... you
         can go rot in hell for all I care!!! (Leaves)
    
         Riethe
         Is that true, Justin? Do you really intend to just stay here? Didn't
         you tell me that my stone block was going to be red and that I should
         start my future anew? (I guess I picked red for happiness back in
         Alent)
    
         Justin
         ... ... ....
    
         Riethe
         I see.... Then that means that I have no further business here. I
         shall be heading back to Alent. A word of advice, Justin. You can have
         eternity itself by your side. But if you're going to sulk around and
         act like a child, then all that time is of no worth.
    
         *** Deserted by his peers, Justin heads back to the camp's main grounds
         where he witnesses the remaining military personnel leaving in
         droves....
    
         Saki
         Hey there, Justin! It looks like you've got nothing left to do, huh?
         Well, from the looks of Sir Myuren's final orders, it doesn't look
         like we're gonna be doing much either.
    
         Mio
         According to Sir Myuren's orders, all military personnel not involved
         in the final strike can go back to their respective homes.
    
         Saki
         We wanted to be part of the military's final mission but Sir Myuren
         said that we were going to be in charge of the departing troops.
    
         Mio
         We've certainly gone through a lot together, haven't we? With the
         dissolution of the army, we'll probably never see each other again.
    
         Nana
         Justin, you should just run away while you're still alive. Sacrifices
         have been made to save everyone's lives, including yours.... As such,
         you should treasure and take good care of it.
    
         Saki
         Alright, let's get going people! Time to head on back to Mecina!!!
    
         Justin
         Everyone's... gone.... I... where should I go...?
    
         Exit the camp and head on to Savanna Plains. Looking very kanashii,
         Justin trips and falls flat on his face in the mud.
    
         Justin
         Why... why did I ever want to become an adventurer? I went through all
         kinds of crap just to make it here!
    
         *** The myna bird appears
    
         Justin
         So you're alone too, huh? Well, that makes two of us, he, he, he.
    
         Myna bird
         Gaia! It's Gaia! Run away!!! There is nothing we can do!!! Run as far
         away as you can!!! SQUAWK! SQUAWK!
    
         Justin
         There's nothing... we can do, huh? That's right....
    
         *** The myna bird flies away.
    
         Justin
         Why did I ever think that I could protect this world...? A person can
         start a new future with his or her own strength and convictions.... A
         person can make a difference and change the times.... Why did I ever
         believe in those ideals? And just how the heck can I start a new
         future by myself... I can't do anything alone!!!
    
         Why did I even go through all that trouble of crossing the world's
         end.... And what was the point of even going to Alent...? I couldn't
         even protect the person... the person that I love most with my own
         strength!!!

         Man
         The money that you and the Moge people gave us has really helped us
         out a lot Guido... I don't know what to say.... We owe the Moge a lot,
         not just financially... It's quite embarrassing. It's a good thing
         that you and the other Moge have thought about this. We're truly
         grateful.
    
         Gido
         Well, we did save the money just for a time like this one. Now then,
         just hang in there okay? We all have to do our best to pull through.
    
         Man
         Yeah!
    
         Justin
         Ha, ha, ha.... Hey there Gido... That's right... you guys really think
         far ahead don't you? That's really impressive.... I mean, it's not
         like me at all.... I can never seem to think ahead--or simply think
         for that matter.... I really envy you... you're so... capable. I, on
         the other hand, can't seem to do anything right.... By the way, is it
         okay if I help you out over here, huh, Gido?
    
         Gido
         Come now, cut that out, Justin. This kind of job doesn't suit you.
    
         Justin
         Ha, ha, ha... well, I was thinking about helping you like, throw stuff
         away or something.
    
         Gido
         Throw stuff away...? What do you mean? Don't you know that Moge's
         don't ever throw anything away? Even objects that you would normally
         think have no value, possess an inert spiritual qualtiy within them
         that humans can find use for. That's why we Moges make use of
         everything.
    
         Justin
         Please, Gido... let me help you out. Even just a little bit.
    
         Gido
         Justin... what have I told you time and time again? Every person has a
         purpose to fulfill in his or her own way.
    
         Justin
         But I can't do anything on my own! What the heck can I do?!
    
         Gido
         You're the only one who seems to think so. Look!
    
         Justin
         Spirits.. It's the spirits! Why? Why are they here?
    
         Gido
         During this world's more enlightened times, the spirits have always
         treated human beings as if they were their own children. That was,
         until Gaia influenced humans and ruined their hearts. A lot of time
         has passed since those dark times, and there hasn't been a person who
         has thought of a way to reunite the humans' lost and fragmented
         hearts.
    
         But you, Justin... you're different! I believe that you are capable of
         doing this!
    
         Justin
         Me?! What the heck are you talking about?! I don't think that it's me
         at all! Feena was the one who saved Jilpadon! Leen was the one who
         recently stopped Gaia! And Myuren, on the other hand, is fighting to
         the very end! I haven't done anything! I'm not the person you're
         looking for... There's nothing I can do....
    
         Gido
         Justin... I know you've always wanted to be the hero, but what can you
         do by yourself?
    
         Justin
         Nothing! I can't do anything! But... that's because I'm alone...
         that's why....
    
         Gido
         You're alone? You mean you haven't even sensed anything yet?

         Milda
         Justin... you're a man aren't you? Don't you know that it's a woman's
         role to wait for her knight in shining armor to rescue her? I'm
         talking about Feena, of course.
    
         Sue
         That's right! Geez, this isn't like you at all! Besides, didn't you
         promise that you and Feena are always gonna go adventuring together?!
    
         Riethe
         Nevertheless, Feena is a Koyokujin. There's no way back from the path
         that her existence leads her to. That's why you need to make a new one
         using the strength you have within. Only you can open the doors that
         normally won't open.
    
         Rapp
         That's right, Justin. There is still is something that you can do.
         Besides, it really doesn't suit me when I try to use my head. I'm the
         kind of guy who's only good at yapping.
    
         Riethe
         That is correct!
    
         Rapp
         Yep, I really hate having to use my head that's for sure, he, he!
    
         Justin
         Rapp... Riethe....
    
         Gadwin
         They're right.... You possess great strength as a fighter and as a
         man, Justin. And you also have great friends.
    
         Justin
         Guys... you're....
    
         Gido
         See? Take a good look! Do you still think you're alone? What you see
         before you... the source of your strength! And that's not limited to
         the people that are currently present here. You've also made ties that
         bind you to the others that you've met along the way. These ties
         you've made are your true strength. That's why you have to use your
         strength in order to save the world. This is your calling.
    
         Sue
         Justin, how long do you plan on taking a break? Aren't you going to
         help Feena?
    
         Rapp
         Yeah, and don't forget those people in the village of stone either!
    
         Riethe
         And I can finally break the chains that bind my fortune. I'll finally
         be able to make an inscription on my stone block!
    
         Justin
         That's right.... I've only just gained the strength that I can truly
         use. Everyone... I'm pretty sure that if we put our strength together,
         then everything will be fine. This is going to be a battle, after all!
         Let's go guys! It looks like I'm not alone anymore! Watch me, spirits!
         I'm going for it!

         Justin
         Huh? What's that?
    
         Riethe
         That's... ... .... Justin, that's the Spirit Gate! This gate is
         similar to the one that the True Existence once opened within the
         former Enjule Civilization. The True Existence is thought to have been
         alive since the dawning of this world. This act proves that the True
         Existence still lives.
    
         At this very moment, the spirits have acknowledged you and they want
         you to enter the Holy Land. From the looks of it, they want to start a
         whole new world.... (I've heard that somewhere before...)
    
         Justin
         The spirits... have acknowledged me...?
    
         Riethe
         That is correct, they have definitely acknowledged you. And what's
         more, the Holy Land is where new spirit stones come from. Let's enter
         the Holy Land, Justin. Just as they have acknowledged you, you must
         likewise, acknowledge the spirits' gesture. I'm sure that once you do,
         then they will lend you their power.
    
         Justin
         Ah.....! I see!  Alright! Let's head on to the Holy Land!

         Honestly, to think of all the trouble I went through just to come
         here, me being a sophisticated lady and all. You really are hopeless,
         Justin. You know what though? It's only been some time since I last
         saw you and you already look different!
    
         Justin
         You think so? I haven't even noticed anything.
    
         Sue
         Yup! You've definitely changed alright! Let me see... hmm... is it
         your... face? You know what? I can't figure it out either! I guess
         you're just fine even without me after all! Well now, we don't have
         time to dilly-dally around. You need to go rescue Feena!
    
         Gadwin
         I wasn't worried one bit about how you were going to turn out ever
         since our last meeting. You've already grown into real man so I know
         that you were going to be just fine . Now I'm curious to see which of
         us is truly stronger. You must engage me in a duel sometime. But
         before we do that, you have to take care of some unfinished business
         first.
    
         Justin
         Gadwin....
    
         Gadwin
         Go rescue Feena.... I am sure that you'll return to us alive. Then we
         can have the pleasure of clashing swords.
    
         Milda
         Honestly, men can be such a pain sometimes. Even Darin' gets depressed
         so easily. Then again, that's what makes them so cute! But Justin, you
         have to hang in there and get yourself together, okay? Feena's waiting
         right? That kid's gonna be depressed if she hears you saying stuff
         like that. Just go and embrace your destiny okay? You're a man now, so
         I'm sure you'll be fine.
    
         Gido
         You're not gonna spew out any of that rubbish about assisting me
         again, are you? You do understand the part you play in life now,
         right? So just leave everything here to us, okay? That's the part that
         I'M going to play out. Just remember... if you blow it, then all our
         efforts will be for naught.... However, I'm sure that you'll do just
         fine. I have the utmost faith in you Justin!

         Riethe
         From this point on you must choose which path to take.  Only you,
         Justin, can proceed.  Let the spirits know what your thoughts hold.
         You must convey to them that they need to give this world and its
         people one more chance....
    
         Justin
         I have come all this way!  I've come all this way... so you may place
         the final answer that I seek within my hands.  You are spirits... and
         we are human....  There are things that we have lost... and things we
         have forgotten.  Now, I am here because we must all start anew. That
         is why I have come all this way.
    
         We are human!  Up to this point, we have compiled many mistakes and
         grievances.  Leen... who possesses powers similar to those of the
         Koyokujin... has, unfortunately, passed away.  And at this very
         moment, Feena is reliving the Koyokujin's sorrowful plight.  We humans
         don't possess this power, is that not right...?  How then, can we
         change anything?
    
         We believe!  We believe that we can change fate!  Many people have
         already been sacrificed....  This time, I don't want to see any more
         hurt and grieving people!  The chains of sorrow must be broken!  I
         want to set things straight... for the sake of all the people... for
         the sake of the spirits... and for the sake of our living planet! It
         is for this very purpose... that you must lend me your strength!
    
         *** The spirits give Justin their response....
    
         Justin
         This isn't going to do!  What I need right now is strength that I can
         use to fight!  Strength that can cut a new future for us!
    
         *** The spirit orb/stone is transformed into the spirit sword....
    
         Rapp
         You did it, Justin!  Man, you're really awesome!
    
         Riethe
         Finally, a legend from the past shows itself yet once again....  You
         now hold it in your hands, Justin. The very power that the Koyokujin
         possessed....  The power that will save this world and its people.
    
         Justin
         I finally understand everything clearly....  The spirits have extended
         their hand to us....  Together... we will start a new future.  I
         believe that this is what the spirits were trying to convey. We must
         let those two... Feena and Myuren... know this as well.

         Gaia transforms...
    
         Riethe
         We have no time to lose! If Gaia manages to spread its spawn
         throughout the planet, our world will be facing some very grave and
         serious problems!
    
         Justin
         Damn it! We can't let that happen! Let's go, Rapp, Riethe! We'll need

         connecting to his body from within this place.

         We've come to help you... Feena, Myuren.... Leen's words have come
         back to me. I finally understand what she meant. If we all fight with
         one heart, then the spirits will give us their blessing. When the
         thoughts of humans and the spirits are as one, all kinds of miracles
         will be revealed!!! Once we defeat Gaia, then we can truly start a new
         future for ourselves.
    
         Feena
         J-Justin... that sword...? I can feel the presence of the spirits
         within it....

         that will cut a new future for all of us!

         Justin!
    
         Myuren
         I refuse to believe this nonsense! The spirits have never forgiven the
         sins and transgressions of humankind! Why would they forgive us
         foolish mortals now?
    
         Justin
         Myuren.... The spirits never stayed away from us humans.... They have
         always been extending their hand out to us. In truth, it was humans
         who forsook the spirits and stayed away from them! Humans, Myuren!
         Humans in the very same mold as you!
    
         Myuren
         W-What?! H-How dare you say that?! You can flap those lips of yours
         all you want, Justin, but it won't change anything! If you want me to
         believe your words as truth, then you'll have to prove it to me! Prove
         it to me with your actions and that sword you hold!
    
         Justin
         I understand, Myuren! Let's get it on!
    
         *** Battle between Justin and Myuren. Defeat Myuren and...
    
         Myuren
         Ungh! Justin... th-this power?! Have the spirits truly acknowledged
         you? Have they really acknowledged mankind yet once again...?! I
         should have had more faith in Leen's words.... I was the one who
         didn't understand after all....How could I have been so foolish? I
         carelessly caused her death... and now my actions may have just doomed
         all of us....
    
         Feena
         You're wrong, Myuren! We still have time! All of us made our share of
         mistakes, not just you! That's why Leen went out of her way to buy us
         some more time.
    
         Justin
         Come with us, Myuren. Let us fight... together. If we all combine our
         strength, then Gaia doesn't stand a chance.
    
         Myuren
         Should I... fight one more time? Will the spirits offer me their
         divine protection as well?
    
         Feena
         It'll be alright, Myuren! If I... Justin... you... Leen... and
         everybody else in the world join hands, then the spirits will surely
         give us their blessing.
    
         Myuren
         ... I have already exhausted all my strength in this place....I have
         followed the "path" as far as I can go.... However, I see that the
         path has now changed! For the sake of our Mother Earth... and for all
         the people in this world... we must forge ourselves a new future! Let
         us go together, Justin! (Man, I just watched that Slayers episode
         where Gourry dresses as a girl and battles that gay Sea Monster again
         just a couple of hours ago. The seriousness of this part is now
         escaping me) This time, I'll use my strength for the good of everyone

    Jason
    -----
     I'm originally from the Philippines and I came to America in 1992. 
    I can speak Filipino, another dialect called Pangasinan, and of 
    course, English. I recently graduated from the University of Nevada 
    with a B.A. in Journalism. As far as Japanese, I only studied it 
    for a year at the university but I did a lot of self-study at home 
    and I regularly have conversations with my Japanese friends here. 
    My hobbies are (this is starting to sound like some stupid match 
    making ad) writing, drawing, painting, photography, cooking, 
    playing the occassional video game and studying Japanese. I like 
    a lot of games but my all time favorite is the Ninja Ryukenden 
    series (Ninja Gaiden in America) for the good old NES (if I list 
    all the games I like there won't be any space). My sign is... 
    yeah right !

     KH is handling the earlier chapters of Grandia (1-17). His 
    native language is English, but he has also studied Japanese 
    for about 3 years (and is still studying ^_^). He started his 
    own Grandia translation page on June 12th, 1998. On Nov. 11, 
    1998 Jason contacted him to discuss the idea of merging the 
    2 separate Grandia translations together and creating a 
    central site, and thus his involvement with the Alent Project 
    began.

     Mandanga
     --------
     My real name is Ernesto Garcia, I live in Spain, in "Barcelona" 
    in short. My 1st language is Spanish and the second is Catalan 
    (Catalonia's language). About japanese, I only know "katakana", 
    "hiragana" and a no long "kanji" list (that I'm now enlarging). 
    I'm a very big RPG fan and of course, GRANDIA is one of my 
    favourite RPG's. In referent to systems, I have to confess my 
    weakness for all "SEGA" machines. 
    (Note of Feena : Mandanga is handling the spanish version of 
    Alent Project.)

     Dyne
     ----
     Dyne is a 18 year old hoser from Canada, who was shipped 
    off for 9 months to Japan to go to school there, and came

    Japanese to help with this translation. His current favorite 
    games are Grandia, Lunar: TSS (Sega CD), FF6 and Dracula X: 
    Nocturne in the Moonlight. His current wish is that SoA would 
    translate Grandia so that he can stop sitting in front of 
    the screen staring at too many kanji trying to convince 
    himself he understands, but this translation is the next 
    best thing. Movies: Anything by Studio Ghibli, and Gattaca 
    is his current fav. Music: EBTG, Cardigans, and UA.
