    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    1. Introduction
    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    
    Firstly, this did not take as long as I first thought. However, school took
    over fast, and I neglected to edit this guide to make it useable for the
    public. So firstly, I apologise, but away from that.
    
    I wanted to do this Game Script as a way to increase my borrid typing speed,
    and to relive the story of this game. In the end, my typing speed is still
    rubbish, but I had forgotten most of the game, so that's all good. One thing I
    planned to do was to record all optional conversations, as they were some of
    the best things the game offered the first time I played it, so that was a
    must. This guide contains all story line content, and all optional
    conversations that I could find. It also gives brief descriptions of battles
    in between, as well actions done by characters in between lines. This also
    includes the credits, pretty much all text available as actual dialogue is put
    into this, including the Mission List, Folio and such.
    
    Please note, this script contains major spoilers for the entire game, so you
    have been warned.
    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    2. Using this guide
    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    
    Highlight the chapter or area in the game script you would like to skip to,
    including the number, copy it then search for it. This provides easy access to
    the parts of the story you would like to see. However, merely searching the
    number of the chapter should suffice.
    
    A chapter will start off from after the end of another chapter, even if the
    name of the new chapter hasn't been shown yet. This makes it easier to
    catagorise the text's of different chapters. The story will be placed first,
    then next will be the optional conversations afterwards. Some people only like
    to read the story, while others would like to see what else is happening
    during the game, so both have been included, one after the other. The hunts
    put on Tomaj's board have been categorised into the chapter you gain them, and
    will be placed in order of number as shown in the mission list. They are
    listed after all story and optional dialogue. After everything in the
    gameplay, the Folio, Logbook, Forge, Primer and Mission List have been listed
    as well. Chapters listed with 'i' before it, such as '0-1i' is the quick
    search term to skip to the optional conversation.
    
    The actual text itself is simple. The character speaking will have their name
    put up first, then their line. Text placed in these brackets [] are actions
    that happen during the game. note that f one of these has the word 'movie'
    first, then it is explaining a CGI movie. Text inside these brackets {} tell
    the person when exactly this text takes place, and is mainly used in optional
    conversations. All conversations will be treated with a gap, except when 2
    characters talk at the same time, then they will be placed one after the
    other. If it does not make sense, then please read on, as it is easier to
    understand after reading, and you'll likely not even use this hard to use help
    section I've made here.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - 0-1 In Search of the Eternal
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [The opening movie shows Vaan's ship and the Strahl landing at The Glabados
    Ruins. The area is above the clouds, with waterfalls to either side of the
    grand entrance.]
    
    Prologue
    In Search Of The Eternal
    The Glabados Ruins
    
    [Vaan runs inside the ruins]
    
    Vaan: Hellooo! Anybody there?
    
    [A Flan drops down from the ceiling, Vaan surprised backs off]
    
    Vaan: Not who I was expecting.
    
    Vaan: Well if that's how it's gonna be...
    
    [Weapon drawn]
    
    Vaan: Let's do this!
    
    Objective:
    Find Penelo, Balthier, and Fran.
    Vaan must survive.
    
    [Commence.]
    
    You must get past the flan first to proceed.
    
    Controlling Units
    
    Before issuing a command, you must first select a unit.
    
    You can use the Unit Tabs at the top of the bottom screen to quickly select
    units.
    
    [Tutorial gestures tapping Vaan]
    
    A hand icon will appear above the heads of any selected units.
    
    Now that we've selected Vaan, let's order him to attack.
    
    Touching the flan will cause the cursor to change to a pair of swords. Lift
    the stylus to issue the attack command.
    
    [Tutorial gestures moving from an open space to attacking the Flan]
    
    Touching an open space on the battlefield will cause the cursor to change to a
    pair of boots.
    
    Lift the stylus to order the selected units to move to that location.
    
    [Tutorial gestures moving the stylus from attacking the Flan to moving to an
    open space]
    
    Units will automatically attack enemies near their destination, so you can use
    the move command to attack as well.
    
    Vaan: Let's see what you've got!
    
    [Battle commences, Vaan approaches and kills the Flan. Vaan makes a victory
    pose.]
    
    Vaan: Nothin' to it!
    
    Vaan: Now to find Penelo. She has to be in here somewhere.
    
    Search the ruins for Penelo.
    
    Controlling The Camera
    
    You can move the camera at any time to survey the battlefield.
    
    Touch the stylus to the bottom screen, then slide the cursor to the edge of
    the screen to scroll your view.
    
    [Tutorial gestures using the stylus to move the camera.]
    
    As you can see, the camera will move in the direction of the side of the
    screen you touched.
    
    You can also use the +Control Pad to move the camera.
    
    Now it's time to use the commands you've learned to find Penelo!
    
    [Battle continues, Vaan heads in and finds Penelo].
    
    [Penelo runs up to Vaan]
    
    Penelo: Sure took you long enough!
    
    Vaan: Sorry, I got here as fast as I could.
    
    Penelo: You didn't waste time getting yourself into trouble.
    
    [Penelo cures Vaan]
    
    Penelo is a healing unit.
    
    She'll cast Cure on nearby allies to restore their health.
    
    You can also select Penelo, then target an ally to have her cast Cure on the
    targeted unit.
    
    [Cure spell finishes]
    
    Vaan: It takes more than healing spells to make it past these flans, y'know.
    
    Penelo: Yeah, so?
    
    [Vaan runs up, Penelo follows]
    
    Vaan: Ah, never mind. Let's hurry up and find Balthier and Fran.
    
    Penelo: They're just up ahead. And I don't think Balthier is gonna wait
    forever.
    
    Vaan: Then what are we standin' around talkin' for? C'mon!
    
    [Penelo agrees]
    
    Guide Vaan and Penelo through the dungeon to reach Balthier and Fran.
    
    Controlling Multiple Units
    
    Slide the stylus across the screen to select multiple units at once.
    
    [Tutorial gestures selecting multiple units.]
    
    Selecting multiple units can save a lot of time when issuing commands.
    
    You can also press the X Button to select all friendly units.
    
    Deselecting Units
    
    You can clear you current selection without issuing a command by touching the
    Clear icon in the top-right corner of the bottom screen.
    
    [Tutorial gestures deselecting units by pressing the icon]
    
    You're then free to make a new selection.
    
    Vaan: Try not to fall behind!
    
    [Battle continues, Vaan and Penelo head further in to find Balthier and Fran.]
    
    Balthier: Good of you to join us, Vaan. Enjoy your stroll through the ruins?
    
    [Balthier and Fran head further in, Vaan puts his hands on his hips.]
    
    Vaan: He still treats us like we're just a couple of kids.
    
    Penelo: Well, at least they waited for us. C'mon, let's go!
    
    [Vaan agrees and they both head in, Mission Complete]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - 0-1i In Search of the Eternal
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {When told to kill the Flan, choose to avoid it instead.}
    
    [Vaan turns towards the Flan]
    
    Vaan: No time for dessert. See ya!
    
    [Vaan turns back and searches]
    
    Vaan: So, where did everybody run off to?
    
    [Controlling the camera tutorial, end.]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - 0-2 The Treasures Twain
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [Vaan, Penelo, Balthier and Fran walk into a room with a dead end, two shiny
    treasures shown at the end on pedestals. Two summoning gates can be found on
    either side of the room.]
    
    Vaan: Whoa...
    
    [View extends to the room.]
    
    [Vaan runs up and shows an extensive view.]
    
    Fran: It would seem the Cache of Glabados holds two treasures.
    
    [Vaan turns around and gives thumbs up.]
    
    Vaan: Perfect! One for you and Balthier, and one for us!
    
    [Balthier gestures.]
    
    Balthier: Settling for only half the treasure? What sort of sky pirate are you?
    
    [Flash comes, Ifrit appears out of a summoning gate, showing its ferocity.]
    
    Balthier: Good to know someone was here to keep the lights on.
    
    [Fran falls in pain.]
    
    Fran: Ernh...
    
    Penelo: Fran!
    
    Fran: This Mist...so strange. It's...cold.
    
    Baltheir: Can you fight?
    
    Fran: Yes, I think so.
    
    [Balthier notices monsters spawn from the second summoning gate.]
    
    Balthier: Well, what do we have here? Quite the welcoming party.
    
    [Vaan draws his weapon.]
    
    Vaan: Better not keep 'em waiting!
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Ifrit!
    Vaan must survive.
    
    Commence
    
    Use Vaan and Penelo to attack Ifrit.
    
    Move in to attack while Balthier and Fran keep the other enemies busy.
    
    [Battle ensues, Vaan and party defeat Ifrit.]
    
    [Flashes, then Ifrit roars and disappears. Party make victory stance. Mission
    Complete.]
    
    [Vaan runs up to the treasures, party follows.]
    
    Balthier: Not so fast, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: What now?
    
    Balthier: The legend of the Cache of Glabados - you're familiar with it, yes?
    
    [Vaan laid back]
    
    Vaan: I didn't know there was a legend.
    
    Balthier: Why am I not surprised? Very well, I'll tell you this once, but no
    more.
    
    [Camera moves to view of the treasure.]
    
    Balthier: This is no ordinary treasure. It holds a connection with the eternal.
    
    Vaan: The eternal what?
    
    Fran: Perhaps a more simple explanation would confuse less.
    
    [Balthier moves up to the treasures.]
    
    Balthier: A treasure is like a mysterious woman. You have to be worthy of her,
    or she'll slip through you fingers.
    
    Balthier: I dare say you're not quite worthy of this one just yet. Better if I
    take it.
    
    [Balthier heads towards the right treasure.]
    
    Vaan: Go ahead. [Draws weapon] Then I'll just have to take it from you!
    
    Penelo: Vaan, what are you doing?
    
    Fran: He's acting the sky pirate.
    
    [Balthier takes the treasure, and throws it to Vaan, who juggles it in his
    hands before gripping it. Then heads towards the other one.]
    
    Balthier: A little something to welcome you to our profession. [Same time,
    Vaan holds up the treasure as it glows.] But remember, Vaan. The things you
    own can end up owning you.
    
    [Balthier takes the other treasure, room shakes, rocks falling everywhere.]
    
    Penelo: What?
    
    Balthier: Seems our performance has brought down the house.
    
    Vaan: What's happening?
    
    Penelo: We've gotta get outta here!
    
    [The party agrees then runs outside.]
    
    [Movie. Balthier and Fran run out, along with Penelo and Vaan, rocks falling
    everywhere. Nono jumps up and down outside the Strahl. Vaan holding hands with
    Penelo run towards their ship, but the quake makes the ship fall down to the
    ocean below. Horrified, Penelo pulls a shocked Vaan to his senses, as they run
    towards the Strahl, and grab ahold of a ledge, Penelo hugging Vaan as the
    Strahl takes off into the sky.]

    Chapter 1 - The Derelict
    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1-1 Eve of Adventure
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    It was over before it started.
    
    [Scene shows Rabanastre's Lowtown, Tomaj walking down the street, till he
    reaches Penelo, Filo and Kytes.]
    
    We'd only just begun to spread our wings, and they were taken away. Vaan
    shrugged it off. He said he'd buy a new airship, and he never even talking
    about the treasure we'd found. It was as though our adventures were only
    dreams, dreams that faded day by day under the brilliant Rabanastre skies. We
    went back to the quiet lives we'd always led, like nothing had ever happened.
    
    [Tomaj walks up]
    
    But it wasn't to last...
    
    Chapter 1
    The Derelict
    The Royal City of Rabanstre
    
    Tomaj: You wouldn't believe the mark Vaan brought down the other day. He's
    sure been in good spirits, considering what happened to his airship.
    
    Filo: An airship we never got to ride, I might add.
    
    Kytes: Yeah, it'd sure be nice to have some adventures of our own for a change.
    
    Penelo: Life's not all adventures and treasures, you know. There's a lot to be
    said for peace and quiet.
    
    [Vaan runs towards the group.]
    
    Vaan: You're not gonna believe this!
    
    Penelo: Vaan!
    
    Filo: Tell us already!
    Kytes: What is it, Vaan?
    
    Vaan: There's an airship headed toward the city. But not just any airship.
    It's older than any airship I've ever seen. You remember the legend about the
    lost sky continent?
    
    [Filo runs up to Vaan, pushes Tomaj aside.]
    
    Filo: "Purvama, the floating lands. In the border-skies they wait,. Untrodden,
    unknown."
    
    [Kytes runs up and jumps.]
    
    Kytes: You don't think the airship's really from some legend, do you, Vaan?
    
    Vaan: Only one way to find out! C'mon!
    
    [Party runs out]
    
    [Movie. A magnificent ship with a dark Mist flowing out of it flies over
    Rabanastre, Vaan, Kytes, Filo and Tomaj are awe-struck, Penelo looking at Vaan
    with worry in her eyes.]
    
    I knew trouble wasn't far off. When Vaan gets that look in his eye, it never
    is.
    
    [Night time, Rabanastre.]
    
    Mission 1-1
    Eve of Adventure
    Night In Rabanastre
    
    [Vaan, followed by Filo & Kytes walk into Rabanastre at night.]
    
    Filo: (yawn) What's so important we have to come out here in the middle of the
    night?
    
    Kytes: And how come we didn't bring Penelo?
    
    Vaan: Shh! Just try and keep up, okay?
    
    [Kytes and Filo look at each other, confused, Vaan runs up and notices
    monsters coming from all sides of Rabanastre.]
    
    Vaan: Where did they come from?
    
    Kytes: They sure don't look like anything I've ever seen in the desert before.
    
    [Vaan draws weapon.]
    
    Vaan: Something's up.
    
    Vaan: You wanted an adventure, right? Time to get your hands dirty.
    
    [Kytes & Filo look at each other and agree, Kytes readies his staff.]
    
    Kytes: Anything you need, Vaan. I'll use magicks to back you up.
    
    [Filo jumps on her skybandit.]
    
    Filo: And I'll attack from the air. They'll never know what hit 'em!
    
    Unit Types
    
    Units deal one of three types of damage.
    
    Knowing when to use which can mean the difference between victory and defeat.
    
    [Vaan, Kytes and Filo run to different areas,]
    
    [Zoom in on Vaan, weapon ready.]
    
    Units that approach enemies and fight at close range using weapons such as
    Vaan's sword deal melee damage.
    
    [Zoom in on Kytes, staff ready.]
    
    Units that attack from afar using bows, crossbows, or magicks deal ranged
    damage.
    
    [Zoom in on Filo, attacks with her board.]
    
    Units that hover above the ground and attack from the air deal flying damage.
    
    [Camera shows all three.]
    
    Each type of unit can counter, and in turn be counter by, another type.Think
    of it as a rock-paper-scissors relationship.
    
    We'll examine the relationship of the units over the course of the following
    battle.
    
    Vaan: Everybody ready? Here we go!
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemies!
    Vaan must survive.
    
    Commence
    
    [Zoom in on the Sylph, enemy Vaan is battling.]
    
    Ranged Units
    
    Ranged units are designed to stand back and deal damage, leaving them
    vulnerable to attacks from nearby units.
    
    Send in melee units to quickly dispatch any ranged units you encounter.
    
    Vaan: This one's all mine!
    
    [Battle ensues, Vaan kills the monster. Battle starts between Kytes and the
    Garchimacera, and zooms in on the flying enemy.]
    
    Flying Units
    
    Flying units are easy map targets for a skilled marksman.
    
    Any type of ranged attack, whether from archers or mages, will send flying
    units crashing to the ground.
    
    Kytes: I sure hope this works...
    
    Vaan: You can do it, Kytes! Just throw some magick its way.
    
    [Battle continues, Kytes kills the monster. Battle starts between Filo and the
    Alraune, and zooms in on the melee unit]
    
    Melee Units
    
    Melee units attack at close range, so they have a hard time reaching flying
    units.
    
    This makes flying units the perfect counter to melee attacks.
    
    Filo: That leaves this one for me!
    
    [Battle continues, Filo kills the monster.]
    
    Vaan: I guess that's that.
    
    [Two more of each enemy appear.]
    
    Filo: ...Or not.
    
    Kytes: Vaan-!
    
    [Vaan with weapon drawn.]
    
    Vaan: Here they come!
    
    [Battle continues, Vaan an party defeat the reinforcements, camera moves to
    Vaan.]
    
    Vaan: This time I think we got 'em all.
    
    [Victory stance, Mission Complete.]

    - 1-2 The Coveted Derelict
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mission 1-2
    The Coveted Derelict
    Rabanastre Southgate
    
    [Scene starts off showing an entrance to the ship in Rabanastre Southgate, a
    soldier guarding the ship has been taken from his post from another soldier.
    Filo, hiding in the bushes, rushes to tell Vaan the news.]
    
    [Heading over to Vaan and Kytes.]
    
    Filo: I heard the guards say something about thieves stowing onboard, and then
    they just ran off!
    
    Filo: Now's our chance!
    
    Vaan: Right, we better hurry.
    
    Kytes: So what are we gonna do once we're on the ship, Vaan?
    
    [Camera zooms.]
    
    Vaan: We steal it before anyone else does.
    
    [Kytes & Filo jump]
    
    Kytes: You're gonna steal it?
    Filo: What!?
    
    Vaan: It's them or us, right? Only we're gonna take it, so we can figure out
    where it really came from.
    
    [Camera moves to the ship.]
    
    Vaan: Besides, it's a derelict. We'll just, uh, take care of it until its real
    owners come looking for it.
    
    Filo: Last one there's a rotten egg!
    
    [Camera back on Vaan and party, Filo jumping up and down.]
    
    Kytes: Something tells me Penelo isn't going to like this very much.
    
    Vaan: Who says we have to tell her?
    
    [All agree.]
    
    Objective:
    Sneak aboard the derelict airship!
    All allies must survive.
    
    Commence!
    
    [Battle starts, party moves forward slight.]
    
    [While party is moving, monsters appear in front of them, Kytes and Filo
    surprised, back up towards Vaan.]
    
    Kytes: Look out!
    Filo: Do something, Vaan!
    
    [Vaan moves ahead of them, weapon drawn.]
    
    Vaan: Don't worry. I've got something that'll send 'em packin'.
    
    Magicks and Abilities
    
    Let's try using Vaan's ability, Dual Attack!
    
    First select Vaan, then touch Magicks/Abilities.
    
    [Tutorial demonstrates accessing the menu to see Vaan's abilities.]
    
    Touch the ability you'd like to use, then select a target.
    
    [Tutorial demonstrates selecting an ability, then using it on a foe.]
    
    Once you've used an ability, you won't be able to use it again until a short
    amount of time has passed.
    
    [Battle continues, Vaan and party head towards the next group of aerial
    enemies.]
    
    [Party sees the enemies, Filo & Kytes surprised.]
    
    Area Attacks
    
    Area attacks can deal damage to entire groups of enemies at once.
    
    Try attacking this group of monsters using Kytes's Firaga magick.
    
    [Kytes moves up with staff drawn, battle continues. Vaan and party meet the
    enemies to the east.]
    
    Point-blank Area Attacks
    
    Point-blank area attacks are area attacks centered on the caster, such as
    Filo's Sonic Wave.
    
    Use point-blank area attacks when a unit is surrounded to deal damage to all
    nearby enemies.
    
    Gambits
    
    In addition to manually using magicks and abilities, you can set up gambits to
    have units use them automatically.
    
    You turn gambits on in the same way you activate magicks and abilities.
    
    [Tutorial demonstrates selecting Filo's gambit.]
    
    With Filo's gambit turned on, she will automatically use the selected magick
    or ability.
    
    Each unit has only one gambit.
    
    Tailoring each unit's gambit to the challenge you face is important if you
    want to succeed.
    
    [Battle continues, party make it to the ship.]
    
    Kytes: I don't wanna go in first! What's taking you guys so long?
    
    [Party heads to the entrance of the ship, Mission Complete.]

    - 1-3 The Treasure is the Key
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mission 1-3
    The Treasure is the Key
    Aboard the Derelict
    
    [Camera shows inside of the ship. Camera moves to the entrance where Vaan and
    party enter, everyone looking around, before meeting up with Vaan, who has
    found something.]
    
    Vaan: Over there!
    
    [Camera shows a summoning gate appear at the end of the corridor, monsters
    spawning out.]
    
    Kytes: Whatever it is, there sure are a lot of monsters comin' out of it.
    
    [Camera back on party.]
    
    Filo: Let's get a closer look!
    
    Vaan: All right, but better be careful.
    
    Objective:
    Reach the summoning gate!
    All allies must survive.
    
    Commence!
    
    [Party battles enemies aboard the airship, and approach the summoning gate.]
    
    [Kytes investigates, confused.]
    
    Kytes: What do you think it is, Vaan?
    
    [Flash of light party is surprised, Vaan is glowing.]
    
    Vaan: The stone!
    
    [Vaan holds out the stone, summoning gate changing from red to blue, Filo
    excited.]
    
    Filo: It's changing color!
    
    Summoning Gates
    
    You can use summoning gates to call forth powerful monsters known as Espers to
    fight at your side.
    
    Red summoning gates are under enemy control and must be captured before they
    can be used.
    
    Pray before a gate to capture it from your enemy. Once captured, the gate will
    turn blue.
    
    You can capture a gate more quickly by sending more units to capture it.
    
    Objective:
    Capture the summoning gate!
    
    [Battle commences, party captures the gate.]
    
    Vaan: Looks like the Cache of Glabados has some kind of power over the gate. I
    wonder if I can use it to summon something...
    
    [Vaan holds out stone, a monster comes out of the gate, Filo & Kytes
    surprised.]
    
    Kytes: Whoa! An alraune!
    
    [Filo walks up to alraune, jumping up and down.]
    
    Filo: Did you summon it, Vaan? Do it again!
    
    Vaan: Uh, sure. nothin' to it.
    
    Summoning Espers
    
    Touch a blue summoning gate to bring up the Summon command.
    
    When summoning an Esper, you must assign it to one of the groups led by your
    main characters.
    
    There's no need for the character to be near the gate.
    
    Objective:
    Summon three Espers!
    
    [Battle continues, party summons 3 more Espers.]
    
    Filo: Wow!
    
    Vaan: So these monsters must really be Espers.
    
    [Kytes backs away.]
    
    Kytes: Espers, monsters...what's the difference? The less we have to do with
    'em, the better.
    
    [Vaan disagrees.]
    
    Vaan: Well, these seem tame enough. Maybe they'll obey us.
    
    [Party are surprised as near them, monsters appear out of nowhere.]
    
    Kytes: Uh oh, here come some more!
    
    Vaan: No problem. We'll use the ones we summoned to fight these.
    
    [Filo jumps up and down.]
    
    Filo: Then maybe we oughta summon a few more, just to be sure!
    
    [Party regroups.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemies!
    All allies must survive.
    
    [Battle continues, party defeats all enemies in the room.]
    
    [Vaan & company regroup, Vaan with victory stance.]
    
    Filo: They fought for us, just like we wanted!
    
    Kytes: Your very own Espers, Vaan!
    
    [Vaan holds out the Cache.]
    
    Vaan: I'm getting the feeling this stone and the ship are connected.
    
    Filo: Let's take a look around, see if we can find anything.
    
    [Filo looks around, finds something and runs off towards it.]
    
    Filo: I think there's a way up over here!
    
    [Vaan calls out.]
    
    Vaan: Hey, take it easy, will ya!
    
    [Vaan and Kytes follow, Mission Complete.]

    Onboard the Derelict
    
    [Scene shows Penelo running through Rabanastre, Tomaj following behind.]
    
    [They enter Rabanastre Southgate, Penelo looking around, and spots something.]
    
    [Penelo and Tomaj arrive in front of the Derelict to find an unconscious
    soldier.]
    
    Penelo: What happened!? Are you all right?
    
    [Penelo cures the soldier, he gets to his knees.]
    
    Wounded Guard: Ungh... They...they forced their way onto the ship.
    
    [Penelo surprised, turns to Tomaj.]
    
    Penelo: You don't think Vaan would do something like that, do you?
    
    Tomaj: You know how he is about airships.
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Well this time he's gone too far! We're taking him home - now!
    
    [Both enter the ship.]
    
    [Scene changes onboard the derelict where Vaan, Filo and Kytes enter the
    bridge. The room is full of mysterious flashing equipment.]
    
    Vaan: This must be the bridge.
    
    [Filo hides behind Vaan.]
    
    Filo: Kinda creepy.
    
    Vaan: There's nothin' to be scared of. You're a sky pirate, right?
    
    [Vaan and Kytes head forward, Filo looks angry.]
    
    Filo: Hmph!
    
    [Filo follows them, Kytes excited at the ship.]
    
    Kytes: I've never seen anything like this before! Everything looks so old...
    Do you think she'll fly, Vaan?
    
    [Flash, from behind an object appears a bangaa, taunting.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Aye, she'll fly, but she'll no be flyin' fer you!
    
    [Three more bangaas appear from nearby with their weapons. Surprised, Filo &
    Kytes fall back behind Vaan.]
    
    Kytes: Wh-who are they?
    
    Filo: Some snakes trying to pass as headhunters.
    
    Vaan: How many times do we have to kill you, anyway?
    
    [Ba'Gamnan notices Vaan.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Well, well. Who have we here! Tire of playing at pirates with
    Balthier, did you? [Ba'Gamnan moves forward.] I settle my scores, boy, and
    yours is long past due!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan swings his weapon, Vaan has his sword drawn.]
    
    Vaan: Still haven't had enough, huh?
    
    [Vaan and Ba'Gamnan cautiously head towards each other, Kytes & Filo back off.]
    
    Filo: What do we do?
    
    Kytes: We, um... [Weapon drawn.] We run!
    
    [Kytes & Filo make off, Vaan calls back at them.]
    
    Vaan: Hey, get back here!
    
    [Vaan taunts Ba'Gamnan, then follows. Ba'Gamnan dances around with his weapon.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: You won't be getting away so easily this time!
    
    Ba'Gamnan: After them!
    
    Bwagi: They're nae more than children, my brother.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan jumps, camera shakes.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: What's that? Do my eats hear mutinous mutterings from your mouth?
    
    Rinok: There's nothing for it, then.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan jumps again, camera shakes, and the others slowly start to walk
    off.]
    
    Bwagi: Aye, sure 'n' there's not, my sister.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan gets real angry, dances around with his weapon, the others run off.]
    
    Gijuk: Wait for me!
    
    [Ba'Gaman follows.]
    
    [Scene shows Bwagi, Gijuk and Rinok chasing after Vaan and party into a
    corner, Vaan with weapon in hand, steadies back, protecting Kytes and Filo.]
    
    Bwagi: 'Tis nae personal, lad. Y'see, we're looking ta leave the headhunting
    business fer good and all. Only, Ba'Gamnan does nae take well ta desertion. So
    yer going ta replace the lot of us.
    
    Rinok: The three of you for the three of us. Not a fair trade by half, but it
    will have to do.
    
    Gijuk: Don't be so sure, my sister! This one here's a right tasty morsel!
    
    Filo: You should know better than to bite off more than you can chew, you
    scurvy lizards!
    
    Vaan: You leave her outta this!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan enters, jumping up and down angrily.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: What are you prattling on about? Cut or be cut, but be on with't.
    
    [Back to Vaan and the others.]
    
    Bwagi: Gijuk! Rinok! our final battle is upon us! [Seems ready.] Make it one
    fer the ages!
    
    [Joining Bwagi.]
    
    Gijuk: Oh yes, my brother!
    Rinok: Hra hra hra!
    
    [Ready to fight, but Vaan looks to the summoning gate.]
    
    Vaan: They're in for a surprise.
    
    [Holding up the Cache, he summons monsters to his side. Surprised, the 3
    bangaas head back towards Ba'Gamnan. Vaan and party group with the Espers,
    Vaan with his weapon out.]
    
    Vaan: Now let's see how tough they really are!
    
    [Espers cry out with him.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Ba'Gamnan, Bwagi, Rinok, and Gijuk!
    Vaan must survive.
    
    Commence!
    
    [Battle starts, as party make their way to the bangaas, and knock them all
    out.]
    
    [Bwagi gets up.]
    
    Bwagi: Urngh...losin' to the likes of sprats like you. We should've quit while
    we were ahead.
    
    Bwagi: Let's get while the gettin's good!
    
    [Bwagi runs off, Rinok and Gijuk get up and run off, leaving Ba'Gamnan lying
    there. Party makes victory stance, Mission Complete.]
    
    [Back to Vaan, Filo, Kytes and the lying down Ba'Gamnan, Vaan approaches
    Ba'Gamnan before the earth starts shaking.]
    
    Vaan: The airship's moving!
    
    Kytes: We better get to the bridge!
    Filo: No time to waste!
    
    [The three agree, and run off towards the bridge, camera zooms in on
    Ba'Gamnan, who gets up, looks around and seems angry, and then follows.]
    
    [Sounds are coming from the airship, Vaan, Filo & Kytes are looking around,
    before a sudden flash.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Oh, I'm not done with you yet! Never forget that he who laughs
    last, laughs hardest!
    
    [Party surprised, Ba'Gamnan enters the bridge, dancing around with his weapon.
    He reaches the stairs, and tumbles down, knocking himself unconscious, Vaan
    and party look distressed. Penelo and Tomaj run into the scene.]
    
    Penelo: Do you want to explain what's going on here, Vaan?
    
    [Party is surprised, Penelo runs over to Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: Just where do you think you're going?
    
    [Vaan gets excited.]
    
    Vaan: On our next adventure, where else?
    
    Penelo: What kind of answer is that?
    
    [The ground shakes harder, surprising the party, as the ship starts to take
    off.]
    
    [We see the ship lift off from Rabanastre, glowing till it's wings spread out,
    and the ship takes off.]

    [Movie. The Derelict is flying high in the sky with a continent not far off.
    The ship approaches a heap of gold mist, which the ship gracefully passes
    through before exiting and showing a tremendous view of undiscovered lands,
    flying continents everywhere, as the ship flies over to the closest one.]
    
    Chapter 2
    Distant Skies
    The Sky Continent of Lemures.
    
    [Scene shows back in the ship, with Kytes, Filo and Vaan.]
    
    Filo: This has to be it!
    
    [Filo & Kytes jump and look psyched.]
    
    Kytes: The legend!
    Filo: The undiscovered sky continent!
    
    [Penelo walks into the scene.]
    
    Penelo: Well, we're in quite a mess now aren't we.
    
    Filo: It's not our fault. The ship started moving all by itself.
    
    Vaan: Don't worry. I can fly the airship, no problem.
    
    Penelo: Hmph. You're certainly confident.
    
    Tomaj: At least I finally managed to get our "guest" under control.
    
    [Scene ends, beginning again with all members onboard in the middle of the
    bridge, Ba'Gamnan tied up with rope to the side.]
    
    Tomaj: So, what's the plan, Vaan?
    
    Vaan: First things first. Our airship needs a name. No self-respecting band of
    sky pirates has a ship without a name.
    
    Filo: Yeah! It's bad luck!
    
    Kytes: But since when are we a band of sky pirates?
    
    Vaan: This is the adventure you've always wanted, right? That's good enough
    for me! Now to think of a name...
    
    [You give your ship a name.]
    
    Vaan: The Galbana. Whaddaya think?
    
    Filo: It's perfect!
    
    [Vaan runs up, hand pointed.]
    
    Vaan: Now that that's settled, we've got a sky continent to explore!
    
    [Filo and Kytes jump excitedly.]
    
    Filo: Aye-aye!
    Kytes: Aye-aye!
    
    Talking and Shopping
    
    Many of the places you'll visit, such as the airship's bridge, are filled with
    characters you can interact with.
    
    Some will give advice on where to go next, while others offer useful items and
    equipment for sale.
    
    [Scene ends, player now has control of the character.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: The airship's stopped. You think anything's wrong with it?
    
    Vaan: Maybe you should try using the Cache. It seemed to work before.
    
    Filo: Aye-aye! Just let me know when you're ready to get under way!
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: Ready to set sail, Vaan?
    
    Let's get going!
    Not yet.
    
    [Choose not yet, end talk.]
    
    [Choose Let's get going, scene begins.]
    
    [Vaan is in the middle of the bridge, and holds up the Cache of Glabados. The
    ship starts to move, end scene.]
    
    [Now in the world map, can see the sky continents of Lemures.]
    
    You can now travel to The Bosco Pampa!
    
    [Back to the outside of the ship.]
    
    Navigating the World Map
    
    Touch the screen in the direction you wish to move. The sirship can land at
    locations designated with a land icon.
    
    Approach named locations to enter them. Important locations containing
    missions that advance the story are marked with a flag.
    
    [End dialogue, free to explore world map.]
    
    [Fly over to the landing area, scene goes back to ship. Filo is jumping up and
    down, everyone else is looking around, Ba'Gamnan is jumping up and down,
    trying to brake free.]
    
    Vaan: We're here. All ashore!
    
    Filo: Aye-aye!
    Kytes: Am I the only one having second thoughts?
    
    [Filo runs over and hits Kytes, Tomaj heads over towards Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    Tomaj: I suppose I'll stay here, keep an eye on the the ship and our scaly
    stowaway.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan is surprised and stops jumping.]
    
    Vaan: Thanks, Tomaj.
    
    [Vaan, Filo and Kytes starts to leave, Ba'Gamnan continues jumping.]
    
    Penelo: Wait! Just one thing before we go.
    
    [Vaan, Filo and Kytes in confusion.]
    
    Penelo: I want each of you to promise you'll do something for me.
    
    Vaan: What kind of promise?
    
    Penelo: I want you all to think about what it means to be a sky pirate. Being
    a sky pirate isn't all thrill and adventure, you know.
    
    Filo: It's not?
    
    [Filo and Kytes look at each other in confusion, Vaan exclaims.]
    
    Vaan: Not exactly. It's something we had a lot of time to think about when we
    were helping Ashe fight the Empire.
    
    Filo: If you know the answer already, why won't you just tell us?
    
    Vaan: It's the kinda thing you have to figure out for yourself.
    
    [Kytes jumps, looking a little angry.]
    
    Kytes: Aww, c'mon, Vaan! Give us just a little hint, please?
    
    Vaan: Well, I guess a little hint couldn't hurt. Part of being a sky pirate is
    hunting for treasure.
    
    Filo: Hunting for treasure? That's it?
    
    Vaan: It's a start.
    
    [Filo and Kytes look at each other in confusion, Vaan laughing. Penelo walks
    towards Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: Kytes, Filo, Tomaj. I want you all to promise me you'll think about
    it, okay?
    
    [Kytes realises something and jumps towards Penelo.]
    
    Kytes: I know! We can all write down our ideas in a log as we go along.
    
    [Tomaj runs over.]
    
    Tomaj: I never even wanted to be a sky pirate.
    Filo: Um...no?
    
    [Penelo gets angry, Tomaj and Filo are surprised.]
    
    Filo: I mean, uh...sure?
    
    Penelo: Then we're agreed. Everyone will keep a log until we get back to
    Rabanastre.
    
    Tomaj: Right. (Who put her in charge?)
    Filo: Yes ma'am. (What a waste of time!)
    
    [Penelo turns to Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: That includes you, too, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: What!?
    
    Vaan: All right, all right.
    
    [Vaan runs over to the group.]
    
    Vaan: If Penelo's finished, then...let's go!
    
    [Vaan, Penelo, Filo and Kytes run out, end scene, back in world map, on the
    ground.]
    
    The Bosco Pampa
    
    Verdant flatland broken by patches of sky. Well-preserved ruins dot the plain,
    attestation to an ancient civilization that survives to this day.
    
    The Winged
    
    The derelict - now known as the Galbana - brings Vaan and his friends to the
    legendary sky continent. What wonders await them on its many islands?
    
    [Begin mission.]
    
    Mission 2-1
    The Winged
    Zephyr, the Windward Isles
    
    [Scene shows a plain looking area, filled with monsters, as Vaan, Penelo, Filo
    and Kytes enter the scene, Filo finds a treasure chest, and Kytes and Filo run
    over to it, and open it up, Vaan and Penelo head over as well.]
    
    Kytes: I didn't think we'd find our first treasure so soon!
    
    Filo: Not much of a treasure. Just some musty ol' book.
    
    Vaan: Hmm. Might as well take it, just in case.
    
    [Kytes jumps up and down.]
    
    Kytes: If we found something this soon, just think how much treasure must be
    waiting out there!
    
    [Vaan walks over to the edge, revealing more of the area.]
    
    Vaan: Treasure...and monsters.
    
    [Kytes notices them looks scared. Vaan and Filo look at each other and laugh,
    while Penelo has noticed something.]
    
    Penelo: Look!
    
    [Shows a winged being with orange hair being surrounded by monsters and
    getting knocked out.]
    
    Penelo: We have to help him!
    
    Filo: Is he even a...a hume?
    
    [Vaan runs over to Penelo.]
    
    Vaan: Let's save him first, ask questions later!
    
    [Vaan summons monsters, the others get in position.]
    
    Objective:
    Save the wounded warrior!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    Commence!
    
    [Battle begins, and Vaan and party save the wounded warrior.]
    
    [Scene begins with Vaan and Penelo running over to the warrior.]
    
    Vaan: We're not gonna hurt you. It'll be okay.
    
    [Penelo starts healing him, the man gets up.]
    
    Wounded Warrior: (groan)
    
    [Penelo continues healing him, Filo starts whispering to Kytes.]
    
    Filo: He has wings.
    
    Kytes: Maybe all the people here have wings.
    
    [Penelo looks around till she appears to have found something.]
    
    Penelo: Over there!
    
    [Camera shows some berries.]
    
    Recovering Hit Points (HP)
    
    Move one of your group leaders to a Foraging Point and eat the berries growing
    there to recover HP.
    
    [Camera moves back to party.]
    
    Penelo: Maybe you'll feel better if you have something to eat.
    
    [Vaan helps him get up.]
    
    Vaan: Here, let me help you over there.
    
    [Vaan helps him up towards the foraging point, the rest follow. With black
    screen, he is healed. Scene starts again with him talking over to the party.]
    
    Wounded Warrior: I am well now, thank you. My name is Llyud. You- you have
    come from below?
    
    Vaan: Nice to meetcha, Llyud. My name's Vaan. We're sky pirates, but don't let
    that give you the wrong idea.
    
    [Llyud walks a little and looks off to the distance.]
    
    Llyud: I see.
    
    Penelo: What is this place? We came here by accident, and we don't really know
    where we are.
    
    [Llyud faces Penelo.]
    
    Llyud: This is Lemures. It is the land of my people, the aegyl.
    
    Kytes: Do all the aegyl have wings?
    Filo: I never heard of any place called Lemures.
    
    [Llyud notices something and runs to look at it.]
    
    Vaan: What's wrong?
    
    [Camera moves to show a female aegyl get attacked by another monster.]
    
    Llyud: My companion.
    
    Penelo: She's in trouble!
    
    [Camera back to Vaan and company, Vaan walks over to Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Don't worry, we won't let anything happen to her!
    
    Llyud: ...
    
    Llyud joins the party!
    
    Objective:
    Save Llyud's companion!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [Battle continues, Vaan and company head towards a material node.]
    
    Material Nodes
    
    You can gather minerals and other useful resources by moving a group leader to
    one of the material nodes found throughout the map.
    
    Resources take time to gather, so make sure the area is clear before starting.
    
    [Battle continues, Vaan and company fight their way through all sorts of
    monsters to get to Llyud's companion. They defeat the monsters surrounding
    her, then help her out. Vaan runs over to her.]
    
    Vaan: Everything's gonna be fine. We're here to help!
    
    [Mission Complete]
    
    [Scene shows party at the north east exit of The Bosco Pampa. Llyud's
    companion, now healed, has flown ahead, the party watching her as she flies
    off.]
    
    Penelo: Good thing we showed up when we did.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, but what was that all about, anyway? Who was attacking you?
    
    Llyud: ... Sky pirates.
    
    [Vaan, Filo and Kytes are surprised.]
    
    Vaan: Sky pirates!?
    
    Llyud: Lemures is besieged by throngs of sky pirates from the underworld. It
    is they who drive the Yarhi to their frenzy- -sky pirates such as you.
    
    [Camera shows a view of the a sky high view of The Bosco Pampa while Llyud
    talks.]
    
    Llyud: A mighty barrier once girded our lands. Behind this barrier we aegyl
    had dwelt here in peace for any thousands of years. But no longer.
    
    Vaan: What's that got to do with sky pirates?
    
    Penelo: Let him finish, Vaan!
    
    Llyud: Not long ago, there came a great rush of Mist from the world below.
    This Mist breached the barrier. Our isolation was lost.
    
    [Vaan realising something.]
    
    Vaan: A rush of Mist... You don't think that could be-
    
    Penelo: -the explosion of the Suncryst? Who'd have thought it could reach so
    far away?
    
    Llyud: Now our very way of life is in jeopardy.
    
    Vaan: Tell ya what. Why don't we help you get rid of these sky pirates who are
    causin' all the trouble?
    
    Llyud: ...
    
    Vaan: C'mon, whaddaya have to lose? not all of us sky pirates are bad, honest!
    
    [Penelo and Kytes look at each other and agree.]
    
    Penelo: We're not all that different from you. When we get into trouble, we
    help each other out.
    
    [Llyud agrees]
    
    Llyud: very well.
    
    [Vaan runs towards the exit, sword out.]
    
    Vaan: Great! Then just show us where these troublemakers are, and we can get
    down to business.
    
    Llyud: They've set up camp in a temple not far from here. Come, I will show
    you.
    
    Vaan: That wasn't so hard, was it?
    
    [The party and Llyud exit, end scene.]

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Before using the ship to take off.}
    
    [Talk to Penelo, scene starts with Vaan, Penelo and Kytes.]
    
    Penelo: I've been thinking about something. You remember what Balthier said
    when we found the Cache of Glabados?
    
    [Vaan ponders, then pulls up the Cache.]
    
    Vaan: Something about it having a connection with the eternal, right?
    
    [Vaan puts it away.]
    
    Kytes: You don't think the Cache has something to do with this airship, do
    you? That it brought us here?
    
    Penelo: It just may have, Kytes. But what's it all mean?
    
    Vaan: Whatever the answer is, I bet it's waiting for us on that island!
    
    [Penelo seems angry, end scene.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again, scene begins.]
    
    Penelo: Poor Migelo's gonna be worried sick about us. I just hope we get back
    to Rabanastre in one piece.
    
    [Vaan walks up close to her.]
    
    Vaan: Take it easy, Penelo. I'm here. What could possibly go wrong?
    
    [Penelo gets angry and pushes Vaan back.]
    
    Penelo: Is that supposed to make me feel better?
    
    [Vaan gestures, end scene.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo a third time.]
    
    Penelo: I've got a bad feeling about this...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: The ship's real enough...but who do you think it belongs to?
    
    Vaan: Ya got me. But she seems to have accepted us as her crew. Guess we'll
    just have to see what happens.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: What kind of monsters do you think we'll run into out here? Are we
    gonna be okay?
    
    Vaan: Don't worry. It's just like hunting dire rats back home. Those never
    gave us too much trouble.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    [Ba'Gamnan jumps up and down.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: (snarl growl) Ngraah!
    
    Penelo: It's a long way down. If you don't start behaving, we can always show
    you the door.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan continues jumping.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Ngraah!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan again.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: (snarl growl) Ngraah!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: This is the chance of a lifetime! A whole sky continent just waiting to
    be explored. Think of the treasures we'll find. Not to mention a healthy
    supply of raw materials.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, so?
    
    Tomaj: You're not looking at the big picture, Vaan. We can use those materials
    to make new equipment, new weapons...all sorts of things. Those raw materials
    are treasures in their own right.
    
    Vaan: Whatever you say.
    
    Tomaj: Well, just gather up what you find and bring 'em to me. I'll put 'em to
    good use.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: The possibilities are endless.
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Vaan: Say Tomaj. I've been meanin' to ask you... Uh, why exactly are you here?
    
    Tomaj: That's a fine thing to say! I thought you'd be grateful for me help.
    Well, you will be soon enough!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj a third time.]
    
    Tomaj: The possibilities are endless.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Try to leave the ship.]
    
    Filo: Where ya goin', Vaan? You've got an airship to pilot!
    
    [Vaan walks back, end.]
    
    {Before landing the airship on a sky continent, back at the bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Filo]
    
    Filo: Hurry up already! We got adventurin' to do!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Going back into the airship after landing it.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: I hope Filo and Kytes aren't getting the wrong idea about sky pirates.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Don't let me keep you from your adventures. The gangplank's just down
    the hall.

    - 2-2 Auracite and the Yarhi
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    You can now travel to Fane of Gucuma Qul!
    
    Navigating the World Map
    
    You can return to the airship at any time to outfit your party or talk to your
    companions.
    
    Revisit cleared areas to engage in melee battles and hone your skills.
    
    Visit areas with mission flags to advance the story.
    
    Fane of Gucuma Qul
    
    August temple enshrining auracite, stones held sacred above all else on
    Lemures. Carven wings soar above the temple, catching the sun and instilling
    peace and awe on all who make pilgrimage here.
    
    Auracite and the Yarhi
    
    Clan Galbana springs to action to rescue the aegyl Llyud. But they're in for a
    fight-the sky pirates invading Lemures have arrived in force.
    
    Mission 2-2
    Auracite and the Yarhi
    Fane of Gucuma Qul
    
    [Scene shows a sky view of the outside of a temple, now overrun with monsters,
    as he party enters the scene from the entrance.]
    
    Vaan: Hey, how come they've got Espers with 'em, too?
    
    [Camera shows a sky pirate with some Espers.]
    
    Llyud: Espers? Ah, you must mean the Yarhi that accompany them.
    
    [Camera shifts back to the party.]
    
    Vaan: Yarhi, huh? Well, whatever you call 'em, where do they come from?
    
    Llyud: The power of the auracite gives them form.
    
    [Filo seems to realise something.]
    
    Penelo: What's auracite?
    
    Filo: Sounds like treasure!
    
    [Penelo gets angry and Filo seems sorry. Camera shifts to the sky pirates.]
    
    Llyud: These sky pirates are of the same mind. It is clear they seek the
    auracite.
    
    Vaan: If we keep standin' around here, they're gonna notice us for sure.
    
    [Vaan holds his weapon in the air.]
    
    Vaan: We've gotta get them before they get us!
    
    [All agree.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemy leaders!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [Party ready themselves, Vaan summons some Yarhi, camera moves to the nearby
    summoning gate.]
    
    Llyud: Opening that gate will enable you to call forth more of the Yarhi.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, I think we've got those gates figured out.
    
    Commence!
    
    [The party battle their way up towards the temple entrance, defeat the sky
    pirates and their Yarhi.]
    
    Mission Complete
    
    [Back outside the temple, Filo and Kytes are jumping up and down with the
    Yarhi, while a conversation is happening elsewhere.]
    
    Penelo: So the god of Lemures...you call him the Eternal?
    
    [Filo gets on her board heading towards the rest of the group, who are outside
    the temple entrance.]
    
    Llyud: That's right. It is said the Yarhi are the sword given us by the
    Eternal when He forged this land. Using auracite, we cal them from the realm
    of illusion to do as we bid.
    
    [Kytes, Filo and their two Yarhi enter the conversation.]
    
    Kytes: Did you hear that, Vaan?
    
    [Filo gets off her skybandit, Kytes jumps up and down.]
    
    Kytes: I bet that the treasure you found, the Cache of Glabados, must be a
    piece of auracite!
    
    [Vaan holds up the stone, and dismisses the 2 Yarhi.]
    
    Llyud: Auracite, yes. Yet I sense an even greater power in this Stone. [Stares
    up at the sky.] But what would a piece of auracite be doing in some underworld
    ruin?
    
    [Filo remembers something and runs over to Llyud.]
    
    Filo: Um, one of those sky pirates dropped this. I think it's another piece of
    auracite.
    
    Llyud: It is. You can use these stones to forge new packs with the Yarhi.
    
    Llyud: Take this. It is what we call a Ring of Pacts. With it you will be able
    to summon new Yarhi to your aid.
    
    [Llyud hands it over to Vaan.]
    
    Vaan: Uh, thanks!
    
    You obtain the Ring of Pacts!
    
    The following selections are now available on the World Map Menu:
    Ring of Pacts
    Espers
    
    [Vaan runs up and gets his weapon out.]
    
    Vaan: Now let's finish off the rest of those sky pirates!
    
    [All agree as they run inside, end scene.]

    - 2-2 Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Before entering the Fane of Gucuma Qul, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan, have you given Llyud the treasures we found yet?
    
    [Filo and Kytes turn.]
    
    Filo: What!?
    Kytes: We're gonna give back the treasure?
    
    [Penelo looks angry.]
    
    Penelo: Of course we are, don't be silly. It belongs to the aegyl - why
    shouldn't we give it back?
    
    Llyud: The contents of those chests are aegyl offerings made to the gods to
    keep Lemures safe. If we use these treasures to defend my land, surely no
    aegyl could voice complaint.
    
    [Filo jumps up and down.]
    
    Filo: Sounds like we've got a license to plunder!
    
    [Penelo angry again.]
    
    Penelo: You're incorrigible, Filo.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: Hunting for treasure is all well and good, but don't forget that there
    are more important things.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Llyud, I was wondering. How come the aegyl all live up here in the sky?
    
    Llyud: "Why"?
    
    Vaan: Well, yeah. I mean, we never expected to find anybody out here.
    
    Llyud: Here we were born, and here we live and die. There is no "why" to it.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, I guess. So now that the barrier's down, do you think you'll ever
    visit Ivalice?
    
    Llyud: The world beyond Lemures holds no interest for the aegyl.
    
    Vaan: That answers that.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: Sky pirates defile the Isles of Winds. Should we not go there?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: The aegyl have been in Lemures all this time, right? Only now with the
    barrier down, sky pirates are havin' a field day up here.
    
    Vaan: Sounds about right.
    
    Filo: So how'd this barrier get here in the first place?
    
    Vaan: I don't know, but there's not much use worryin' about it now.
    
    Filo: Fly first, ask questions later. Words for a sky pirate to live by!
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: As far as I'm concerned, bein' a sky pirate's about finding treasure!
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Hey, Vaan. I made my first entry in the ships logbook! Don't for get to
    make one yourself, or you'll never hear the end of it from Penelo.
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: So...is this all there is to being a sky pirate?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    [Ba'Gamnan jumps up and down.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: If you think me one to forgive and forget, you've a rude awakening
    waiting, boy!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: What's the story with your new friend?
    
    Vaan: Ah, right, you missed all the excitement.
    
    Vaan: Long story short, this place is getting overrun by sky pirates. we
    offered to lend a hand, help clean up the place.
    
    Tomaj: That doesn't exactly answer my question...
    
    Vaan: I'm sure you'll be up to speed in no time. Maybe you can even help us
    hunt down some of these sky pirates.
    
    Tomaj: No time. My hands are full running the Good Ship Tomaj.
    
    Vaan: It's the Galbana!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: Sky pirates cropping up left and right. What do you suppose they're up
    to?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Enter Monster Melee at The Bosco Pampa.]

    - 2-3 Reinforcements
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Reinforcements
    
    The party learns the sky pirates seek auracite, magick stones used to summon
    illusory beasts known as Yarhi. Something stalks them as they navigate the
    shrine's twisting passages in search of answers.
    
    Mission 2-3
    Reinforcements
    Way to the Auracite
    
    [A view of the interior of the temple shows it overrun with monsters. A gate
    is in the way of the entrance. Filo and Kytes try unsuccessfully to knock it
    down, and eventually give up knock it down.]
    
    Vaan: There must be some way inside...
    
    [Vaan notices something to his left as the camera shows a switch.]
    
    Vaan: That should do the trick.
    
    [Vaan walks over to it, till Filo floats over to it.]
    
    Filo: I wanna push it!
    
    [She presses down on the switch.]
    
    Switches
    
    Only group leaders can activate switches. Don't send an Esper to do a leader's
    job.
    
    [The gate lifts up to be an entrance.]
    
    Llyud: The auracite chamber should be beyond this gate.
    
    Vaan: Then that's where we'll find the leader of these sky pirates.
    
    Objective:
    Find the auracite chamber!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After leaving the Battle Menu, Vaan summons Yarhi to the field, is about to
    say something, till Filo interrupts him.]
    
    Filo: Oh! Oh! Lemme say it!
    
    [She runs up in front of the group.]
    
    Filo: Let's get 'em, boys!
    
    [Cries from the Espers can be heard, Commence!]
    
    [The party fight their way through the glorious temple. Treasures in this
    place summon Yarhi to protect them when they are open. At the top of a
    stairway, they face a sky pirate and beat him. He gets up after his defeat.]
    
    Well-bred Sky Pirate: I know when I'm beat, kupo!
    
    [The sky pirate runs off, battle continues. and the party makes their way
    through more corridors, and best another sky pirate, found behind a gate
    activated switch.]
    
    Jaunty Sky Pirate: You're a no-good lot, siding with the aegyl over your own!
    
    [The sky pirate runs off, battle continues. The party head down another
    corridor, and best the last sky pirate in the place.]
    
    Stubborn Sky Pirate: Do we flee...? We do!
    
    [The final sky pirate runs off, and the party head towards the auracite
    chamber, and find the switch which opens the gate to the entrance of the
    auracite chamber, and the scene begins.]
    
    [The Yarhi are dismissed, and the party all agree, as they head down the
    stairs towards the entrance. When they all enter, the sky pirates they had
    defeated before turned the switch back on again, and the party is now trapped.
    The moogle sky pirate then summons Titan between the entrance and the party.
    The party run over to meet Titan.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Titan!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [Battle commences, as the party party Titan.]
    
    [In the midst of the battle, the sky pirates cheer from behind the gate. Along
    the corridors, Ba'Gamnan has escaped and is running towards the entrance.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Ungraah!
    
    [The pirates hear the noise but are confused. They can then hear his footsteps
    get louder as he gets closer. When they notice him, he runs into the center of
    the three pirates and knock them all out, knocking one of them onto the switch
    which opened the gate again. The party turn to see him, Filo and Kytes jumping
    up and down.]
    
    Filo: Yipes! It's Ba'Gamnan!
    
    [Behind them, they can hear the roar of Titan, as Ba'Gamnan steps closer
    towards Kytes, Kytes looks between Titan and Ba'Gamnan. From another corridor,
    Tomaj is walking along and watches. Vaan gets in between the Kytes and
    Ba'Gamnan. Just as Ba'Gamnan is about to swing his weapon, to everyone's
    surprise, he gets electrocuted.
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Yggrah!
    
    [Electricity flowing around him, he jumps around in pain, then falls to the
    ground. Tomaj can be seen on top of the party.]
    
    Vaan: Hey, Tomaj. What's with him?
    
    Tomaj: See for yourself.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan gets up, with a gold ring around his mouth.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Aye, enjoy the spectacle while you can. The worm will turn!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan gets up, runs towards Titan and hits him.]
    
    Filo: Did you see that!?
    Kytes: Ba'Gamnan's obeying you?
    
    Tomaj: Not bad, eh? I call it Ba'Gamnan's Bane. Just a little something I
    threw together. I suppose you could say Ba'Gamnan works for me, now. Go easy
    on 'im.
    
    [The party runs up to Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    Kytes:  I don't know about this, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: Me neither, but I'll take all the help we can get.
    
    [Battle continues, as the party, with Ba'Gamnan's help, confront Titan and
    defeats him. Upon the victory stance, Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Ba'Gamnan goes to attack Penelo, before a whistle is heard
    and Ba'Gamnan is electrocuted again.]
    
    Vaan: He's a slow learner.
    
    Penelo: What are we going to do with him, Vaan?
    
    Vaan: We use Espers to fight for us. Why not him?
    
    Kytes: Do you think we can trust him?
    
    Vaan: We've got him by the tail. I don't think he'll give us any trouble.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan gets up, jumping up and down.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Brave words boy. If it weren't for this blasted muzzle, I'd carve
    my name in your bones!
    
    Vaan: That's just the fear talking. You can dish it, but you can't take it.
    
    [Jumping up and down again.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Enough! Muzzle or no, let's have at it, boy!
    
    [Vaan gets his weapon out.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan "joins" the party?
    
    [End scene.]

    - 2-3 Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Before starting Mission 2-3, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: The legend of the Cache of Glabados said it had some connection with
    the eternal. That's what Balthier said, right?
    
    Vaan: And if the Cache is really a piece of auracite, then that legend must
    have something to do with Lemures.
    
    Penelo: Hmm... Do you think Balthier knew about Lemures all along?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again, scene starts.]
    
    Penelo: So, did you catch everything Llyud had to say about auracite and the
    Yarhi?
    
    Maybe not everything...
    Every word!
    
    [Choose maybe not everything...]
    
    Penelo: Alright, which part did you want to hear about?
    
    The Yarhi.
    Auracite.
    Maybe some other time.
    
    [Choose the Yarhi.]
    
    Penelo: The Yarhi are the sword of the Eternal. They live in the World of
    Illusion.
    
    Vaan: But we can summon them here using auracite, right?
    
    Penelo: Exactly. Sort of like Espers.
    
    Vaan: And the Eternal taught the aegyl how to summon the Yarhi so they could
    defend themselves.
    
    Penelo: Yeah, that's what it seems like.
    
    Penelo: Was there anything else you wanted to ask about? [Options appear.]
    
    [Choose Auracite.]
    
    Penelo: Auracite is a powerful type of stone that we can use to summon Yarhi.
    If we gather enough auracite, we can use it to forge packs to summon new Yarhi.
    
    Vaan: That's what the Ring of Pacts that Llyud gave us is for.
    
    Penelo: Yup.
    
    [Vaan flashes the Cache out.]
    
    Vaan: Since I used the Cache of Glabados to summon Yarhi, that means it must
    be a piece of auracite, too.
    
    Penelo: I thought I heard Llyud say that it was different somehow, but it must
    at least be something close.
    
    Penelo: Was there anything else you wanted to ask about? [Options appear.]
    
    [Choose maybe some other time.]
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again, choose every word.]
    
    Penelo: Okay. Just let me know if you need a reminder.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: Even when summoning the Yarhi, there are holy laws that must be obeyed.
    
    Vaan: Holy laws?
    
    Llyud: If you attempt to call a Yarhi that is beyond your ability to control,
    you will be destroyed.
    
    Vaan: Harsh law. I guess it pays not to get in over your head.
    
    Llyud: In this, as in all things.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: We aegyl have had growing difficulty controlling the Yarhi. It puzzles
    me that these sky pirates from the underworld should command them with such
    ease.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: Have you tried using the Ring of Pacts yet, Vaan? I took a look at it,
    and there sure are a lot of different Yarhi to choose from. How're you gonna
    decide?
    
    Vaan: I dunno, Filo. Which ones do you think would be good to have?
    
    Filo: That's easy! The big, strong, scary ones!
    
    Vaan: Naturally. So, you enjoying all this excitement?
    
    Filo: Are you kidding? This is the best adventure ever! We're finally
    honest-to-goodness sky pirates!
    
    Vaan: Yeah, pretty fun, isn't it?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: Do you think we can make pacts with all the Yarhi on the Ring?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes, scene starts.]
    
    Kytes: So where do you think the world the Yarhi live in actually is?
    
    Llyud: The World of Illusion is everywhere, and it is nowhere.
    
    Kytes: I don't think I understand.
    
    Llyud: It is not a place within our world, but another world parallel to our
    own. The portals between our world and theirs are what we call summoning gates.
    
    Kytes: So the auracite Vaan has-the Cache-is that a portal to their world, too?
    
    [Vaan flashes the Cache/]
    
    Vaan: That's right. I used this to summon Yarhi all by itself.
    
    Llyud: Though it is possible to summon the Yarhi using auracite alone, there
    are limits to the Stones' power. Summoning gates are a far more effective
    means of summoning great numbers of Yarhi.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: If the Yarhi are from this "realm of illusion," then that must mean
    they're some sort of illusion, too.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: We can't just leave Ba'Gamnan tied up like that forever. If he gets
    loose, there'll be trouble. But I'm working on something to remedy that.
    
    Vaan: Oh yeah? Let's hear it.
    
    Tomaj: I think I'll save it for a surprise.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: Just leave the running of the ship to me. Compared to managing the
    Sandsea, this'll be a breeze.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    [Ba'Gamnan is jumping up and down.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: I've nothing to say to you! Away from me, boy!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Access the Ring of Pacts form the menu.]
    
    The Ring of Pacts
    
    Use the Ring of Pacts to forge pacts with new Espers and enlist them to your
    cause.
    
    To enlist an Esper, first touch on of the glowing yellow nodes on the Ring.
    Each node represents an Esper.
    
    Once you've selected an Esper, touch Enlist to forge a pact with that Esper.
    Forging pacts requires auracite.
    
    You can rotate the Ring by touching the slide wheel found along its edge.
    
    Remember that you must add any new Espers you've enlisted to an Esper Troupe
    before you'll be able to summon them during battle.
    
    [Modify an Esper Troupe.]
    
    Assigning Espers to Troupes
    
    You can assign up to five Espers to a troupe. However, an Esper cannot be of a
    higher rank that that indicated on its slot.

    - 2-4 'Neath Darkened Wings
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Neath Darkened Wings
    
    The group presses on with the help of Ba'Gamnan, who is tamed by Tomaj's
    device. Arriving at the shrine's inner sanctum, they learn the true ambitions
    of the sky pirates.
    
    Mission 2-4
    Neath Darkened Wings
    Dais of the Auracite
    
    [Camera shows a large, gold statue of a great being with multiple wings. Four
    sky pirates are seen admiring it.]
    
    Vaan: Not so fast!
    
    [The sky pirates turn around and notice them, as the party runs into the
    scene.]
    
    Vaan: If you think you're taking that auracite, think again.
    
    [One of the sky pirates pulls out his weapon.]
    
    Togi, Treasure Hunter: Yer gettin' mighty worked up over a wee stone, if ya
    were t'ask me!
    
    [Camera shows a large, red crystal.]
    
    Togi, Treasure Hunter: No matter! With this soul crystal, how can we lose?
    Slice 'em up good, lads!
    
    Soul Crystals
    
    Possession of a soul crystal enables KO'd group leaders to rejoin the battle
    after a short amount of time.
    
    [Camera heads back to a view of the party and the large staircase to climb and
    meet the sky pirates.]
    
    Vaan: I guess it's time to smash some crystal!
    
    [Camera zooms in from Vaan and his party up the stair case to a head on of
    Togi and his band of sky pirates.]
    
    Objective:
    Destroy the enemy soul crystal!
    Your soul crystal must survive.
    
    [Camera zooms out of the enmy, then into the Battle Menu, till it's done, the
    Commence!]
    
    [The party climbs their way up the staircase, and defeat Yarhi and Sky
    Pirates. However, soon after the sky pirates die, they are resurrected at the
    soul crystal. They march their way to the top, and smash the sky pirate's soul
    crystal.]
    
    Vaan: They won't be comin' back now!
    
    [Victory stance, Mission Complete.]
    
    [Back at the top of the stairway, near the statue, the party interrogate the
    leader sky pirate.]
    
    Vaan: Whaddaya mean you're workin' for somebody else?
    
    Penelo: And who gave you the auracite in the first place?
    
    Togi, Treasure Hunter: Hrmph! You'll not get another bleedin' word outta me!
    
    [Vaan and Penelo look at each other and sigh, then turn to Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    Vaan: All right, Ba'Gamnan, he's all yours.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan slowly walks over towards the sky pirate.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: (snort) I'm going to enjoy this...
    
    [Togi jumps and turns to Vaan.]
    
    Togi, Treasure Hunter: I thought we were supposed to be the baddies here.
    Fine, I'll tell ya what I know, which is little enough. We got the stone we
    used from a shady character called the Judge of Wings, ya follow? I don't know
    who or what she is, and that's the truth of it!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan goes to take a swing at him, before Vaan whistles and electrocutes
    Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    Vaan: A judge? What would a judge from the Empire be doing here?
    
    Togi, Treasure Hunter: They wouldn't be doing anything here! Who said anything
    about the Empire, anyway? This Judge of Wings is all done up i armor with
    wings on the back, so that's what we call 'er, ya follow?
    
    Vaan: So who is she?
    
    [Camera shows large view of the temple.]
    
    Togi, Treasure Hunter: The Judge of Wings broke the barrier protecting
    Lemures, and now she plans to invade Ivalice. She sits in judgement of all
    life...and death.
    
    Penelo: What's this about invading Ivalice?
    
    [Camera back on party.]
    
    Togi, Treasure Hunter: none of us put much stock in that. We're just along for
    the auracite, heh.
    
    [Filo jumps up and down.]
    
    Filo: Then this judge is the one we've gotta stop!
    
    Kytes: Shh! Don't give 'em any ideas.
    
    Vaan: So you raided the temple because she told you to?
    
    [Camera moves up to show the statue in its entirety.]
    
    Togi, Treasure Hunter: Aye, only the stone in this temple was a miss.
    
    [Camera back on party.]
    
    Togi, Treasure Hunter: We're hopin' t'find a giant auracite crystal, what they
    call an auralith.
    
    [Llyud seems to respond to that, Vaan is confused.]
    
    Vaan: Auralith?
    
    [Penelo is confused as well, as the sky pirate slowly sneaks past Vaan, and
    runs away.]
    
    Vaan: Hey, get back here!
    
    [The party chase after him, and the scene ends.]
    
    [Outside the temple, Tomaj is walking inside, when he notices the sky pirate
    running and hides, and watches him run off. The party are then seen exiting
    the temple chasing after him. They find Tomaj below.]
    
    Vaan: Tomaj! Did you see any of those sky pirates come this way?
    
    Tomaj: As a matter of fact, I did. He sure was in a hurry.
    
    Vaan: Why didn't you stop him?
    
    Tomaj: I'm not much of a fighter. No weapons, scarcely any muscle on me - I'll
    pass.
    
    Penelo: Look on the bright side. At least he's all right.
    
    Tomaj: Well, if you're finished here, why don't we head back to the airship?
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [The party is now back on the Galbana's bridge.]
    
    Vaan: So what do you know about these "auraliths," Llyud?
    
    Llyud: The auraliths are the root of the power that sustains our world. It is
    said there are three such crystals.
    
    [Llyud turns to the front of the ship and looks up.]
    
    Llyud: Their story begins many thousands of years ago, when the Eternal
    created this land.
    
    [Camera shows a large view of the interior of the ship.]
    
    Llyud: His proper name is Feolthanos the Eternal. When He created Lemures, He
    used the three auraliths to create a barrier to protect us. Feolthanos lives
    even now, standing watch over Lemures, sheltering us from harm.
    
    Filo: No way... How can he still be alive after thousands of years?
    
    Llyud: He is the Eternal. He knows not death.
    
    Vaan: I'm starting to see a pattern here.
    
    Balthier said the Cache of Glabados was supposed to have a connection with the
    eternal...
    
    Llyud: Is something wrong?
    
    Vaan: No, but we better get moving.
    
    Vaan: You wanna keep the auraliths safe from the Judge of Wings, don'tcha?
    
    Llyud: The auraliths hold the power of the Eternal. They are the very
    foundation of Lemures. They must be protected at all costs.
    
    Llyud: The Judge of Wings means to bring down the eternal...or replace Him.
    
    Vaan: Anybody trying to become a god's got his armor on too tight, if you ask
    me.
    
    Penelo: Do you know where any of the auraliths are?
    
    Llyud: One, yes.
    
    Vaan: Then all we have to do is make sure we get to it before they do!
    
    [The others agree, and move to different areas of the ship.]
    
    Vaan: Where to, Llyud?
    
    Llyud: A great cloudstone rises from the island to the west. The auralith is
    there.
    
    [Camera looking straight out the window of the Galbana, Vaan with the Cache in
    his hand.]
    
    Vaan: Let's see what the Galbana's got!
    
    [A green flash, and the Galbana moves off, Chapter 2 Complete!]

    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Vaan: Being a sky pirate everything you thought it'd be?
    
    Filo: I'll say!
    
    Vaan: All that hard work and practice down in Lowtown really paid off.
    
    Filo: It sure did! I told those scurvy landlubbers it would!
    
    Vaan: Too bad we couldn't bring more of the old crew along.
    
    Filo: He he he. They'll just have to wait for the next time!

    Kytes: Hearing you tell us about your adventures is one thing, but doing the
    adventuring is kinda scary.
    
    Vaan: Aw, c'mon. You're having fun, aren't you?
    
    Kytes: I guess... But I've never really been much for fighting. What if
    something really big attacks us?
    
    Vaan: Then just be glad we'll be facing it together.
    
    Kytes: Right, Vaan!
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: Just promise me you'll try not to get us in too much trouble, okay?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: I told you you'd be glad to have me along. That trinket was worth every
    gil.
    
    Vaan: Trinket? You mean the muzzle you've got wrapped around Ba'Gamnan's
    snout? What did you buy that for in the first place?
    
    Tomaj: Sorry, I can't be giving our trade secrets.
    
    Vaan: Whatever you say, Tomaj.

    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: I am no dog to be led about by a leash by children playing at

    Vaan: I wouldn't get too worked up if I were you. Wouldn't want anything to
    happen to ya.
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Let's have it, then! All wind and no steel is what you are!
    
    Vaan: I warned you.

    [Fly the airship to land on the west continent.]
    
    [Scene goes to the inside of the Galbana. Everyone is about to leave, while
    Vaan is standing thinking about something.]
    
    Filo: What's the matter, Vaan?
    Kytes: Aren't you coming?
    
    Vaan: Something's been bothering me. While we're busy here, what's to say some
    other sky pirates aren't off causing trouble somewhere?
    
    Penelo: That's actually a good point, Vaan. But we can't exactly be in two
    places at the same time.
    
    [Tomaj notices and enters the conversation.]
    
    Tomaj: Maybe that's something I can help with.
    
    Tomaj: Who better to dig up leads on what these sky pirates are doing?
    
    Tomaj: I could put up a notice board right over here-post anything I found out.
    
    Penelo: Sounds good to me.
    
    Vaan: All right, let's get going!
    
    [Vaan, Penelo and Kytes disembark the ship, Tomaj watching them as they leave.]
    
    Tomaj: Hmph. Not so much as a "thanks."

    Chapter 3
    What Goes Up...
    Tornelados, Isle Of the Megalith
    
    The Kinse Rise
    
    The roots of the great skystone jut from this gently sloping hill. The
    skystone's Mist tempers the climate, and in spring the hillside is a riot of
    color as its rich grasses give way to a sea of flowers.
    
    Savagery
    
    The Galbana drops anchor at the Isle of the Megalith to stop the Judge of
    Wings from reaching the auralith, only to find a sky pirate attack already
    underway.
    
    Mission 3-3
    Savagery
    The Kinse Rise
    
    [Scene shows sky pirates attacking aegyl all over The Kinse Rise. Aegyl are
    scattered all over the field, as Vaan and all but Ba'Gamnan run into the
    scene. Vaan gestures to the sky pirates.]
    
    Vaan: You're gonna be sorry!
    
    Penelo: We're too late...
    
    Vaan: Not too late to help!
    
    [The party seems to get ready for battle, Ba'Gamnan walks into the scene.]
    
    Penelo: How many aegyl are left?
    
    [Vaan looks off to the distance and sees four aegyl alive in The Kinse Rise,
    who all seem to notice him as well.]
    
    Vaan: Looks like...four of 'em!
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemy leaders.
    All aegyl must survive.
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Vaan summons the Yarhi to him and the allies.]
    
    Vaan: We've gotta get those aegyl someplace safe.
    
    [Commence! The party approaches a nearby aegyl under attack by a sky pirate.]
    
    Fleeing Aegyl: My friends... Please help them.
    
    Vaan: Don't worry, we will.
    
    [The battle continues, as the party takes out the nearby sky pirate. The
    fleeing aegyl gets to safety.]
    
    Fleeing Aegyl: I should be safe now.
    
    [The aegyl disappears as the party continues to save the other aegyl. They
    approach the aegyl being attacked to the east, and defeat all enemies
    surrounding him.]
    
    Terrified Aegyl: It-it'll be safe over there, r-r-right?
    
    [The terrified aegyl heads towards the safe area, as the party continues to
    rescue the other aegyl. When the rescued aegyl gets to safety...]
    
    Terrified Aegyl: I-I made it.
    
    [The aegyl disappears as the party continues north to rescue another aegyl
    under attack. However, back at the safe point, a Seeq comes in and trips over
    a tree branch and falls over. He gets up and summons Yarhi to him.]
    
    Donga the Tardy: Gra ho! Better late than never, I always says!
    
    [Camera moves to nearest aegyl.]
    
    Donga the Tardy: One aegyl left standin' be one too many! Gra hee hee!
    
    [Battle continues as the party makes their way towards the nearest aegyl in
    the middle of the field.]
    
    Aegyl Brave: There was nothing more I could do. Forgive me.
    
    [The party helps the aegyl to safety, defeating Donga in the process, as the
    aegyl gets to the safe point.]
    
    Aegyl Brave: I will not flee the next battle.
    
    [The brave aegyl disappears as the party makes their way towards the final
    aegyl left.]
    
    Aegyl Warrior: You are friends of Llyud? Then I leave the rest to you.
    
    [The aegyl warrior starts to retreat but gets surrounded by Yarhi, which the
    party helps defeat, and takes out the last sky pirate left. Party does victory
    stance, Mission Complete.]
    
    [Back at the safe point, the rescued aegyl plus 2 wounded ones are talking to
    Vaan and the party.]
    
    Aegyl Survivor: The bulk of their force will soon reach the temple.
    
    Vaan: And that's where the auralith is.
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: If all they're after is auracite, why attack the aegyl?
    
    Vaan: You don't understand the kind of people we're dealing with here. All
    they care about is getting what they want. To them, it doesn't matter if
    people get hurt doing it.
    
    [Filo and Kytes get angry, Penelo walks over to Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: Then we have to make sure that doesn't happen. Why don't we let them
    on the airship to stay safe? Who knows if they'll get attacked again. Besides,
    there's plenty of room.
    
    Vaan: That's a great idea.
    
    Llyud: Are you sure?
    
    Vaan: Why not? The ship's as much yours as it is ours. Maybe it'll give Penelo
    someone else to mother for a change.
    
    Llyud: Thank you...I suppose.
    
    [Llyud flies over to the other aegyl, as the scene ends.]

    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: What do you think the Judge of Wings wants, anyway?
    
    Vaan: The Cache, Lemures...they all have a connection with the eternal. Maybe
    she's looking for eternal life.
    
    Penelo: Is that even possible?
    
    [End talk.]

    Vaan?

    [Talk with Llyod.]
    
    Vaan: Feolthanos is the god of Lemures? Do you know where we can find him?
    
    Llyud: He dwells in the Keep of Forgotten Time. It lies in darkness, in a
    place not even our wings can reach.

    Filo: The Judge of Wings is using sky pirates to steal auraliths to bring down
    the barrier- (pant) I can't keep it all straight!
    
    Vaan: Sounds like you've got it down better than I do.
    
    Filo: You really think so? I don't know...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]

    the sky pirates. That much I'm sure of.

    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: We done hunting for treasure already?
    
    Vaan: No, we're just taking a little break is all.
    
    Kytes: Phew! I was gettin' worried.
    
    Vaan: Don't forget what Penelo told you. There's more to all this than finding
    treasure.
    
    Kytes: Right, right.

    information about the Windward Isles. It's all up on the notice board, so take
    a look when you get the chance.

    {Check the notice board.}
    
    Bug Hunt
    
    Bugs. Lots of bugs. They're crawling all over the Bosco Pampa on the Windward
    Isles. Antlions, by the look of them. Get down there and squash them, Vaan.
    It's the only way to be sure.
    
    Once Bitten, Twice Shy
    
    Already word of these sky pirates' wrongdoing reaches my ears. They beleaguer
    a group of aegyl at the Fane of Gucuma Qul on the Windward Isles. Best hurry
    while there's still time.
    
    Maleficent Mayhem
    
    Monsters block the way to the auracite at the Fane of Gucuma Qul. From what I
    can tell, the sky pirates there are only making the situation worse. See that
    it doesn't grow more so.
    
    {After finishing those three missions on the noticeboard.}
    
    The Scofflaw
    
    I've located the sky pirate at the root of the trouble on the Windward Isles.
    He's hold up inside the Fane of Gucuma Qul itself. I worked hard tracking him
    down, so don't let my efforts go to waste.
    
    {Choosing the notice board from the world map.}
    
    Tomaj: Let's see what I have for you...
    
    {Choosing a mission from the notice board from the world map.}
    
    Tomaj: Come back in one piece!
    
    {Leaving the notice board from the world map.}
    
    I'll keep an ear open, Vaan. Both ears!
    
    {When the notice board doesn't have anything and you access it from the world
    map or the airship.}

    [The camera moves to show three areas with statues on top of summoning gates.]
    
    Vaan: The summoning gates are blocked, too.
    
    [Back to the party.]
    
    Filo: That means no Espers.
    
    [Vaan gets his weapon out.]
    
    Vaan: I guess we'll just have to do this on our own.
    
    [Kytes runs up and protests.]
    
    Kytes: Are you crazy? You saw what they did to those aegyl!
    
    Vaan: Well, I don't hear any other ideas.
    
    Llyud: There is another way-a secret entrance.
    
    [Party turns to Llyud.]
    
    Kytes: Really?
    
    Filo: You might have told us a little sooner.
    
    Llyud: It's not as easy as that. The entrance can only be opened by a switch
    inside the temple.
    
    Filo: Arrr...
    
    Vaan: What if I sneak in and open the door?
    
    Penelo: By yourself? What if they catch you?
    
    Vaan: It's hardly the first time I've snuck inside a heavily guarded building.
    And if I go alone, there's less chance of getting caught.
    
    [Penelo walks over to Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: I don't know...
    
    [Vaan heads on his way, getting ready.]
    
    Vaan: Trust me, I know what I'm doin'. You guys head around to that secret
    entrance, and I'll meet ya there.

    Vaan: All right, it's up to me now.
    
    [Commence.]
    
    [Vaan makes his way around the outside of the temple, and quietly past the
    guards through the middle and reaches the entrance to the temple. Upon

    Llyud: Yes.
    
    Vaan: So, what's the difference between auracite and an auralith?
    
    Llyud: The origin of auracite and the auraliths is the same. All auracite
    comes from the auraliths, and both were gifts given to Lemures by the Eternal.
    
    Vaan: In other words, the auraliths are just big pieces of auracite, right?

    Tomaj: Buying, or selling, you've come to the right place.
    
    I'm here to buy.
    I'm here to sell.
    On second thought, never mind.
    
    [Buy or sell gives you a menu, choose on second thought, never mind.]
    
    Tomaj: Anything else? [Gives initial options.]
    
    [Choose Actually, I just wanted to talk.]
    
    Tomaj: Lo, Vaan! What exactly have you gotten us into this time? We've got
    aegyl crawling out of the woodwork.
    
    Vaan: They're gonna be staying with us for a while. just until we're sure
    they'll be safe.
    
    Tomaj: I don't suppose you'd care to elaborate? Maybe tell me who they are, or
    how they got here?
    
    Vaan: I'm sure a practiced streetear such as yourself should be able to piece
    it together.
    
    Tomaj: So now I'm supposed to investigate what my own friends are doing? This
    is a fine pass we've come to.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: If you haven't taken a look at the notice board, you should. That
    information isn't easy to come by, you know!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj a third time, choose nothing now thanks.]
    
    Tomaj: Come back anytime!

    The Crystal's Cry
    Auralitih's Cradle
    
    [Vaan and party enter a passageway through a cave, looking at the sights
    ahead. Llyud soon flies ahead of them.]
    
    Llyud: What are they doing!?
    
    [The rest of the party catch up to Llyud, seeing the Auralith with two big
    cannons pointing right at it, along with four sky pirates who are with the
    machinery. Vaan runs up towards them, weapon out.]
    
    Vaan: Hands off the stone, y'hear?
    
    [The sky pirates run away from the party.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemy leaders.
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations...]
    
    Vaan: We can't let anything happen to the auralith!
    
    Commence!

    {Before starting Mission 3-3, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Sneaking inside the temple like that! What if they caught you? We need
    you to be there for us, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: Don't worry, Penelo. I know what I'm doing. Besides, even if something
    did happen, you'd still be here to mother everyone.
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Hmph!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: Just remember, we have to look after Filo and Kytes. So try not to do
    anything stupid.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: The secret entrance leads straight to the auralith chamber. It is the
    most direct way there.
    
    Vaan: We owe you one, Llyud. I don't think we'd have found a way without you.
    You can leave the rest to us. We won't let anything happen to the auralith.
    
    Llyud: Why are you doing this?
    
    Vaan: The auralith - it's important to you, right? That's good enough for me.
    
    Llyud: To protect the auralith is our sacred duty. It is the will of the
    Eternal.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: The auralith is deep inside the temple. Are you ready to search for it?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: (sigh) Are we leaving anytime soon?
    
    Vaan: Maybe you should sit this one out. Y'know, stay here and get some rest.
    
    Filo: Rest!? We're sky pirates! What good is a sky pirate resting inside an
    airship!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: You don't need to worry about me, Vaan. Now let's hurry up and find that
    auralith!
    
    [End talk.]

    - 3-4 Judge of Wings
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mission 3-4
    Judge of Wings
    Auralith's Cradle
    
    [The party gathers around the machinery pointed at the precious auralith, in
    the middle of the Auralith's Cradle.]
    
    Llyud: Look what they've done to the crystal. Small wonder the barrier has
    fallen.
    
    [Llyud turns to Vaan.]
    
    Llyud: What manner of device is this?
    
    Vaan: I don't know, but you can bet the Judge of Wings is behind it.
    
    Kytes: Um, Vaan?
    
    [They all turn to Kytes, who is nearest to the exit.]
    
    Kytes: Something's headed this way.
    
    [Kytes backs away slowly in horror as Esper battle music plays. A dark figure
    with a dark aura has entered the room and is walking towards the party, the
    cave quaking as she walks, her armor clanking as she walks.]
    
    [Kytes runs back as it walks towards them, the rest of the party with them,
    Vaan runs up to the front of the group, his sword out, the cave still shaking.]
    
    Sky pirates from the underworld.
    Such power you posses.
    
    [A beam of dark light expands from the Judge of Wings, as Filo and Kytes start
    flashing purple in the heads.]
    
    Kytes: I hear her. She's inside my head.
    Filo: What's happening?
    
    [The Judge Of Wings approaches the party as Filo, Kytes and Penelo are
    affected by her voice and start flashing fast, seeming overwhelmed.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Join me. Together we will find the two remaining auraliths.
    You will have all the auracite you want and more.
    
    [Vaan runs back up the people affected, with Kytes falling to the floor.]
    
    Vaan: No thanks.
    
    Judge of Wings: And what of Ivalice? Under my dominion, I could grant your
    every wish.
    
    [Vaan readies his weapon again.]
    
    Vaan: I already told you, we're not interested.
    
    Judge of Wings: (chuckle) Sky pirates are ever creatures of avarice and greed.
    Perhaps you, too, seek the Eternal?
    
    Vaan: Did you say "eternal"?
    
    [Another dark aura shoots out from the Judge of Wings, Llyud, Filo and
    Ba'Gamnan fall to the ground, Vaan and Penelo fall to their knees, both
    affected by a shining purple light.]
    
    Penelo: My mind...I feel her in my mind!
    
    [The Judge of Wings starts walking away from the party, the ground still
    shaking.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Friends of that arrogant fool. I might have known. See for
    yourselves the true face of greed.
    
    [A light covers the entire room, as a flashback from the Judge's past is shown
    to them. The Judge is in front of a statue in an unknown place.]
    
    Do you not seek the Eternal?
    
    [The camera moves to reveal Balthier and Fran as well as an auralith. Fran has
    been knocked to the ground, with Balthier getting closer to the auralith.]
    
    Balthier: Roses have thorns - this much I've come to expect.
    
    [Balthier walks closer to the auralith.]
    
    Balthier: But you, my dear, poison yours. You've not sense of fair play.
    
    [Balthier pulls out his Cache of Glabados.]
    
    Balthier: So long as you are slave to a Stone, you'll never change.
    
    [Balthier chucks it in the air and shoots it down, shattering it.]
    
    Balthier: Only fools let themselves be trapped by broken dreams. Your
    "eternity" is an illusion.
    
    [The Judge of Wings walks towards Balthier.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Illusion is the only true reality. Our desire for the Eternal
    is the desire to become undying. Ask, and I can make eternity a reality for
    you.
    
    Balthier: All this talk of dreams and desire- I'm like to take you for a
    lover, not a foe.
    
    [Balthier rest his gun on his shoulders.]
    
    Balthier: And now I'm going to bury your dreams with your stone. It's time you
    opened your eyes to reality.
    
    [The Judge of Wings charges in for a quick strike, Balthier quickly jumping
    back.]
    
    Balthier: Tire of the foreplay so soon?
    
    [Points his gun at the Judge.]
    
    Balthier: I suppose I'm going to have to tame our winged shrew.
    
    Judge of Wings: Not this day.
    
    [The Judge of Wings summons Shiva behind Balthier and casts Diamond Dust on
    him, causing him to fall. The Judge then starts to walk out as the light
    appears again, and the scene shifts back to the present time, where the entire
    party has fallen, but with Penelo getting up and Vaan on his knees.]
    
    Penelo: What was that?
    
    [Vaan gets up and shakes it off, the Judge of Wings facing them once more.]
    
    Judge of Wings: I showed you only what you wanted to see.
    
    [Vaan runs up to the Judge, sword in hand.]
    
    Vaan: What did you do with Balthier?
    
    Judge of Wings: I set him free - free of life's burdens.
    
    [Vaan gets really mad.]
    
    Vaan: These tricks you're playing on us, these things you're showing us- I
    don't believe any of it!
    
    [The Judge of Wings walks over towards the auralith.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Your anger, your sorrow. Fitting offerings to the Eternal!
    
    [The Judge of Wings pulls out a pink stone.]
    
    Vaan: That looks like the Cache of Glabados! There was another stone!?
    
    [The Judge of Wings spins around and summons Espers to the field, Shiva among
    them, then starts the machine to destroy the auralith, Vaan swings his weapon,
    the rest of the party is up.]
    
    Vaan: This has gone far enough!
    
    Objective:
    Defeat the Judge of Wings.
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Vaan warns the party, camera fixed on Shiva.]
    
    Vaan: We better keep an eye on her.
    
    [Shiva sends out a kiss.]
    
    Penelo: Not too close an eye, I hope.
    
    Vaan: Who do you think you're talkin' to?
    
    [Camera back on the party, now at the very end of the cave, Commence!]
    
    [As the battle starts, the Judge of Wings and her minions charge straight
    towards the group. After a short battle with her, she decides to teleport
    elsewhere through a dark light.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Shiva.
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [The party makes brings the attack to Shiva, defeating her and the Espers
    accompanying her.]
    
    [However, as the battle ends, the machine starts again, and the breams from
    the machine shatter the auralith. The Judge of Wings appears, the entire party
    flashing and to their knees, and holds up a stone to absorb the power, then
    teleports away. After she teleports, a shard from the auralith falls off into
    the field.]
    
    A shard of the auralith falls to the ground. You can use this astral crystal
    to accumulate astral power (AP).
    
    [Mission Complete!]
    
    [After the battle, the party gather round the shattered auralith. Filo gets
    angry.]
    
    Filo: Why's she doing this?
    
    Llyud: ...
    
    [Ba'Gamnan starts walking away from the party, unnoticed, as Penelo walks up
    to Llyud.]
    
    Penelo: I'm sorry we couldn't keep the auralith safe.
    
    Llyud: I...I just don't know.
    
    Penelo: Don't know what?
    
    Llyud: At a time such as this, what should I say? How should I act?
    
    [Llyud moves his head around.]
    
    Llyud: I just don't know.
    
    Vaan: Don't be too hard on yourself. Sometimes there is no right way to act.
    
    [The party turns to Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: I've always said you were a soft touch, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: Well, what's everybody standin' around for? We've got a judge to catch!
    
    [The others Penelo, Filo and Kytes agree and all run off with Vaan. Llyud
    stays there, looking up, wondering. End scene.]

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mission 3-5
    Backstabbing Bangaa
    Fane of Tehp Qul
    
    [The party run out of the temple, and into the area Vaan had to sneak into to
    gain access to the secret entrance. They are soon stopped by a familiar voice.]
    
    Bwagi: And just where is it ye think ye be goin'?
    
    [Ba'Gamnan's old henchmen Bwagi, Rinok and Gijuk enter the scene, Ba'Gamnan
    seeming excited to see them, as he walks forward in front of the party.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Oh ho! So you've finally built up the courage to come pay a visit,
    eh?
    
    [Camera shifts to the three bangaas, as Bwagi swings his weapon.]
    
    Bwagi: Now there's a sight to sore yer eyes! Addled of wit from playing at
    pirates with the wee ones, aye.
    
    Rinok: We're done followin' you, my brother. no more will we come running at
    your beck and call.
    
    [Gijuk swings his weapon.]
    
    Gijuk: In a word: you're fired!
    
    [Back to Ba'Gamnan and the party.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Ungrateful louts!
    
    [Back to the three bangaas, Bwagi walking back to the other two.]
    
    Bwagi: Louts we may be, and ungrateful we are, but we answer to no one but
    ourselves!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan dances with his weapon out.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Then it's high time I carved some respect into your pitiful hides!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan with his weapon out, now back with the three bangaas.]
    
    Rinok: Sorry to be spoilin' yer plans, but we've picked up some new tricks
    while ye were away.
    
    Gijuk: On with the show, aye!
    
    [Gijuk summons some Espers to them. Back to the party, Filo and Kytes are
    taken aback.]
    
    Kytes: Even they have auracite?
    Filo: Espers!?
    
    Vaan: That must mean they're working for the Judge of Wings, too.
    
    Penelo: We have to stop them.
    
    [Vaan gets excited and his weapon out.]
    
    Vaan: Let's teach 'em a lesson they won't forget!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan dances around with his weapon.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemy leaders.
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Ba'Gamnan dances around with his weapon.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Best hope they get to you before I do!
    
    Fortifying Espers
    
    With the astral crystal in your possession, you can use the Fortify Esper
    command at any summoning gate.
    
    As time passes, the crystal accumalates astral power (AP) which you can spend
    to increase the level of your Espers for a short time.
    
    [Commence!]
    
    [The party battle their way through the bangaa's minions, taking down their
    friends with them. As the party approaches Rinok...]
    
    Rinok: The ring you're wearing suits you, my brother. A gift from your new
    masters?
    
    [Camera moves to Ba'Gamnan, as he swings his weapon.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Insolence at every turn! You'll rue the day you turned on me!
    
    [Battle continues and the party defeat Rinok, as they then approach Bwagi.]
    
    Bwagi: Ye're a relic from another time, my brother. If our due ye'll not give
    us, take it we must!
    
    [Camera moves back to Ba'Gamnan, who swings his weapon.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Your due? Your DUE? You're overdue a boxing of the ears and cuffing
    of the snout!
    
    [The battle continues, as the party defeats Bwagi and his mighty Esper,
    Tiamat. The party finally makes their way to the final bangaa, Gijuk.]
    
    Gijuk: The Judge of Wings has gone to the skysea, and you'll not be followin'
    her!
    
    Vaan: Skysea, huh? Thanks for the tip!
    
    [The battle continues, and the party takes down the final bangaa. All three of
    them and their two friends now fallen, they talk with Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    Bwagi: Have ye no shame? Relying on these wee sprats to save yer hide?
    
    [Bwagi gets up.]
    
    Bwagi: We'd best get whilst the gettin' be good!
    
    [Bwagi, Rinok and Gijuk get up and retreat the area, Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party make their way down from the entrance to the
    Fane, till Kytes stops to notice something. Penelo walks back to talk with him
    while Ba'Gamnan is twisting his head.]
    
    Penelo: What is it, Kytes?
    
    [Ba'Gamnan jumps up and down.]
    
    Kytes: We're gonna go after that Judge of Wings, right?
    
    [Ba'Gamnan makes a run for it.]
    
    Kytes: That means we have to fight her. But Balthier tried, and look what
    happened to him.
    
    Vaan: Balthier's been in tighter spots than that before. I wouldn't worry
    about him.
    
    Kytes: But what happens if she gets what she wants? She's using sky pirates to
    find these auraliths for her, so she can take over Ivalice and all.
    
    Vaan: Then we just have to make sure she doesn't get them.
    
    [Filo runs over to Kytes.]
    
    Filo: You're not scared, are you, Kytes?
    
    [Kytes jumped up and looked at Filo, angrily,]
    
    Kytes: You'd be scared too, if you stopped to think about anything for a
    change!
    
    [Filo gets angry back.]
    
    Filo: What's that supposed to mean?
    
    [Penelo now gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Cut it out, you  two. We have bigger problems to worry about.
    
    [Both agree, and Penelo with them, then Penelo goes over to Llyud.]
    
    Penelo: Llyud, I was wondering. Right now only one of the auraliths is gone,
    so the barrier's still there, right? But what would happen to Lemures if the
    barrier went away completely?
    
    Llyud: I cannot say. It's reasonable to assume it was put in place for some
    purpose.
    
    [Llyud turns and looks to the sky.]
    
    Llyud: If what the barrier is holding at bay were to break free, no good could
    come of it.
    
    [Penelo understands and walks back over to Filo and Kytes.]
    
    Penelo: I think Kytes has good reason to be scared. I know I am.
    
    Penelo: But things like this, they give you a chance to look inside yourself.
    And that's where you find hope.
    
    Penelo: For one thing, I'm sure Balthier's still alive. Vaan said as much, and
    I'm sure he's right.
    
    Kytes: ...
    
    [Vaan walks over to them.]
    
    Vaan: We've got a world to save. How often do you get a chance to do that?
    
    [Vaan gestures and Filo agrees, he then jumps down the stairs.]
    
    Vaan: We don't know where the other two auraliths are, but maybe we can find
    the Judge of Wings. We'll look for her first.
    
    Penelo: Didn't Gijuk say something about her being near a skysea?
    
    Vaan: Does tat mean anything to you, Llyud?
    
    Llyud: There is an island to the east that holds a great skysea. Perhaps this
    is the place they spoke of.
    
    Vaan: Then that's where we're goin'!
    
    [All agree, as everyone but Kytes starts to head off. Kytes walks very slowly,
    before finally joining up with the others. Chapter 3 Complete!]

    bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: I'm worried about Llyud. He's not his usual self.
    
    Vaan: Who can blame him? Something important to him was destroyed right in
    front of his eyes.
    
    Penelo: What does this mean for Lemures? What do we do now?
    
    Vaan: We'll figure out something.
    
    Penelo: Right.
    
    [End talk.]

    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: Kytes spends too much time worrying. I mean, everybody has doubts about
    stuff, but you can't let 'em get in the way.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo agian.]
    
    Filo: With all these aegyl onboard, the bridge is getting kinda crowded. Not
    that it bothers me. But I wonder what the aegyl think of all this.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Filo always knows exactly what she wants to do, and she does it. Must
    be nice... Me, I spend all my time worrying about what to do, and end up not
    doing anything.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: I had a little talk with some of the aegyl while you were away. They
    tell me you can use something called astral power to strengthen Yarhi during
    battle.
    
    Vaan: I think we found something like that in the auralith chamber.
    
    Tomaj: Why am I always the last to hear about these things?
    
    Vaan: Don't ask me. You're the "streetear."
    
    Tomaj: I go out of my way to help, and this is the thanks I get.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: The aegyl didn't seem too concerned when I told them what happened to
    the auralith. They do care, right?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: I was to kill Balthier, but he couldn't last long enough to give me
    the chance.
    
    Vaan: I wouldn't write off Balthier just yet.
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Who asked you? You keep to your affairs, and I'll keep to mine.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan again.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Sweet mercy, won't you leave a body be?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with male aegyl.]
    
    Aegyl Deserter: If the auralith lies broken, that, too, is the will of the
    Eternal.
    
    [Talk with female aegyl.]
    
    Aegyl Survivor: The auralith is destroyed? Then such is our fate. Why struggle
    against it?
    
    [End talk.]

    - 4-1 Pirates in Peril!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [The camera shows a place full of people in a different part of the airship,
    fully decorated and with shops lined up all over the place. The party walk in
    stunned by what they see. Tomaj looks at them looking for first impressions.]
    
    Tomaj: Well, whaddaya think?
    
    [Kytes and Filo jump up and down in excitement.]
    
    Kytes: It's like a bazaar right here on the airship!
    Filo: Wow!
    
    Tomaj: And this is only the beginning. I've got big plans. Big. Let me show ya
    around.
    
    [Tomaj points to an area to the left of the Sky Saloon, with plates, food and
    beverages placed on a table.]
    
    Tomaj: Why settle for one shop when you can have four? My first stall's right
    over here.
    
    [To the top left, where a tent and many jugs and barrels are held, as well as
    the counter and an unbound Yarhi are held.]
    
    Tomaj: The second is just a ways down, on your left.
    
    [Camera briefly shows shop three, and finishes on shop four.]
    
    Tomaj: And numbers three and four are only a stone's throw away!
    
    [Camera goes back to the party.]
    
    Tomaj: All owned and operated by yours truly, naturally.
    
    [Penelo complains.]
    
    Penelo: How come you get to have all the fun?
    
    Tomaj: Hm?
    
    [Filo and Kytes run off, while Penelo in the direction of the first store.]
    
    Penelo: We'll help run the stores, too. Right, Llyud?
    
    [Llyud agrees, and Penelo, Llyud and Ba'Gamnan head off.]
    
    Vaan: What about me?
    
    Tomaj: A store's not a store without a customer, Vaan.
    
    [Tomaj runs off, and the scene ends.]
    
    {Player enters the bridge, and starts the scene. Vaan now walks up to pilot
    the ship.}
    
    Tomaj: I should think you would be very interested in what I have to say!
    
    Vaan: So say it.
    
    Tomaj: About this skysea... Apparently, hordes of sky pirates are descending
    upon it as we speak, no doubt in search of the auralith. Meaning we'll be
    fighting every step of the way. Sure this is where you want to go?
    
    Vaan: It's our best shot at finding the Judge of Wings. This is the chance
    we've been waiting for.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [After the scene, talk to Filo.]
    
    Filo: Guess what I found right here on the ship! Actually, just give up,
    because you'll never guess. It's a fold-out canoe! This might come in handy on
    the skysea.
    
    Filo: Speaking of setting sail, guess who's at the helm? That's right- me!
    Ready when you are, Cap'n!
    
    [Talk to Filo again.]
    
    Filo: Ready to launch, Captain? [Show options.]
    
    Full speed ahead!
    Not just yet.
    
    [Choose Full speed ahead!]
    
    [Vaan walks over to the middle of the ship, pulls out the Cache, and the ship
    takes off.]
    
    [In the world map, a location overlooking the sea has been found.]
    
    You can now travel to Port Marilith!
    
    [To another location, back on the Isle of the Megalith.]
    
    You can now travel to Shadow of Paharo!
    
    Port Marilith
    
    Breathtaking port overlooking the skysea. It is customary for the aegyl to
    travel the skysea by ship rather than fly, and the port bustles with travelers.
    
    Chapter 4
    A Grand Hunt
    The Muruc Cahuac Skysea
    
    [Camera shows a large extensive port town, with people selling goods on the
    streets. Filo and Kytes are very excited.]
    
    Vaan: Hey, Tomaj, I thought you said this was gonna be dangerous...
    
    Tomaj: You can cut the tension with a knife.
    
    [Filo jumps up and down.]
    
    Filo: This place looks great!
    
    [Filo and Kytes run off while Tomaj talks over in front of the party.]
    
    Tomaj: I can only pass on what I hear. Consider yourselves warned.
    
    [Tomaj walks off to leave, and the scene ends. You can now roam the port town.
    Head towards the ship, a scene will start.]
    
    [Vaan runs up to the ship, seemingly recognizing the three people on it.]
    
    Vaan: Rikken, is that you?
    
    [The man at the end of the ship turns around.]
    
    Rikken: Well, well, well, look who we have here! The up-and-coming sky pirate
    has up and come. Good to see you, Vaan!
    
    [The other two turn around.]
    
    Elza: Been keeping well, have you?
    Raz: So it is, so it is! Haven't heard from you in ages!
    
    [Penelo, Kytes and Filo head towards the ship. Penelo goes on while Filo and
    Kytes stand from the edge and watch.]
    
    Filo: Why does Vaan know these people?
    
    Kytes: My guess is he met them during the war.
    
    Vaan: This is the last place I expected to run into you. What are you doing
    here?
    
    [Raz moves up and down.]
    
    Raz: A sorry lot of pirates we'd be, sitting around with an island's worth of
    treasure to be had!
    
    Penelo: Word travels fast...
    
    [Vaan walks up to the three.]
    
    Vaan: Actually, I wanted to ask you about something.
    
    Rikken: Ask away! [Shows options.]
    
    What's all the commotion?
    You heard of the Judge of Wings?
    
    [Choose What's all the commotion.]
    
    Rikken: Why, the answer's right before your very eyes! We're holding an
    auracite gathering tourney. A grand scavenger hunt, as it were.
    
    Vaan: A scavenger hunt?
    
    Rikken: The First Annual Cup Auracite Scavenger Hunt, to be precise.
    
    Vaan: That's a mouthful.
    
    Elza: So cynical for one so young. Pity. You'd think being on a legendary sky
    continent would find people in better spirits.
    
    Raz: Arr, you'll not find treasure with that attitude.
    
    [Rikken gestures, a flash comes.]
    
    Rikken: Which is why we're throwing this celebration to set the tone for the
    event! Consider yourselves on holiday. Enjoy!
    
    Penelo: But we didn't come for a holiday...
    
    Rikken: Anything else on your mind? [Back to options.]
    
    [Choose you heard of the judge of wings.]
    
    [Rikken seems to know something.]
    
    Rikken: Judge of Wings, eh? I might know a thing or two.
    
    Vaan: I'm waiting.
    
    Rikken: What I know is that I wish I didn't know what it is I knew. In fact,
    I'd rather not discuss it.
    
    Vaan: So the one time I actually want to hear what you have to say, you clam
    up.
    
    [Rikken turns around.]
    
    Rikken: I'm a creature of whims, loath to chat about that which might spoil my
    good humor. It's for your own good.
    
    [Vaan looks down.]
    
    Rikken: Anything else on your mind? [Back to options, a third one has
    appeared.]
    
    What's all the commotion?
    You heard of the Judge of Wings?
    It's not important.
    
    [Choose the last one.]
    
    Rikken: Vaan. It would seem you take us for petty thieves, when in fact our
    goal is much the same.
    
    [Vaan seems confused.]
    
    Vaan: Oh yeah?
    
    Elza: Dogs waggin' their tails as this mock magister tosses them scraps. It
    pains the eyes to look on! A black mark on every honest pirate's name.
    
    Raz: A sadder sight were never seen!
    
    Rikken: If it be auracite they're after, let 'em find it themselves! Havin'
    your treasure handed to you's no way for a pirate to live.
    
    Vaan: A treasure worth finding's worth finding yourself.
    
    Rikken: Precisely! And that's the truth our friends have forgotten.
    
    [Rikken gestures back to them.]
    
    Rikken: It's up to us to lead them back to the straight and narrow, and
    scuttle this judge's plans. [A spin and another gesture.] A nobler cause
    you'll not find, and all I ask is your entry fee!
    
    Vaan: You had me up until "fee."
    
    [Penelo, Kytes and Filo walk away, end scene.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo, scene starts between Vaan, Penelo, Filo and Kytes.]
    
    [Filo jumps up and down.]
    
    Filo: I think we should enter. Maybe it'll help us learn more about being sky
    pirates!
    
    [Kytes also jumps up and down.]
    
    Kytes: Yeah, I like the sound of this!
    
    Penelo: What do you think, Vaan. Maybe we could talk Rikken down a bit on the
    entry fee.
    
    [Kytes jumps, Filo is excited.]
    
    Kytes: Now you're talkin'!
    Filo: I'll help! I'll help!
    
    Vaan: There's nothing sayin' being a sky pirate means we can't have a little
    fun.
    
    Penelo: Filo's certainly been enjoying herself, that's for sure.
    
    [Filo spins around.]
    
    Filo: Sure am!
    
    Penelo: But remember: We're here to look for the Judge of Wings, right?
    
    [Both Filo and Kytes jump up and down.]
    
    Kytes: All right! C'mon, Filo, let's go talk to Rikken about that entry fee.
    Filo: Yay!
    
    [Filo and Kytes run off towards the ship, Llyud enters the scene.]
    
    Llyud: Ba'Gamnan has gone missing.
    
    [Both Vaan and Penelo are surprised.]
    
    Penelo: We just let our eyes off him for a minute...
    
    Vaan: This can't be good.
    
    Penelo: What do we do?
    
    Vaan: Not much we can do. If he comes back looking to start trouble, we'll put
    him in his place.
    
    Ba'Gamnan leaves the party.
    
    Raz: Lo, Vaan!
    
    [Filo and Kytes run back, followed by Rikken, Raz and Elza.]
    
    Elza: Just what have you been teaching these young ones, eh?
    
    [Rikken spins around.]
    
    Rikken: They drive a hard bargain, they do. Talked me into waiving the entry
    fee. I'm out fully five hundred thousand gil. Generous to a fault, that's what
    I am.
    
    [Both Vaan and Penelo are surprised.]
    
    Penelo: Where'd you learn to bargain like that, Filo?
    
    Filo: It was easy. I learned it by watching you, Penelo!
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Elza: One small detail we've neglected to mention: We'll be entering, too.
    
    [Vaan is confused, Rikken gestures.]
    
    Rikken: Clock's ticking! No time to waste!
    
    [Rikken lets off a shout and runs off towards the ship.]
    
    Rikken: Till next we meet!
    
    Raz: May the best pirate win!
    
    [Raz and Elza follow, Filo walks in front of Vaan.]
    
    Filo: What're we waiting for?
    
    [Filo and Kytes run off, Penelo is still angry, Vaan rubs his head, before
    they the rest follow, end scene.]
    
    [Back at the world map, camera fixed on an island inside the skysea.]
    
    You can now travel to Isshu, Jewel of the Skysea!
    
    Isshu, Jewel of the Skysea
    
    Island paradise where aegyl crossing the skysea often sojourn. The
    crystal-blue waters and shimmering white beaches offer welcome respite to the
    weary wayfarer.
    
    Pirates in Peril!
    
    The party tracks the Judge of Wings to the shores of the Muruc Cahuac Skysea,
    where they happen upon Rikken and his band of pirates. They know
    something...or at least look like they do.
    
    Mission 4-1
    Pirates in Peril!
    Isshu, Jewel of the Skysea
    
    [Camera shows Rikken, Ezla and Raz facing a sky pirate on a beach before the
    sky pirate summons Yarhi to him. The three step back, before Rikken steps
    forward.]
    
    Rikken: Dabbling in the summoning arts now, are we?
    
    [The moogle sky pirate shoots his gun.]
    
    Souffle[the e is like cafe.], Gunslinger: We don't take kindly to claim
    jumpers, kupo! This treasure's ours!
    
    [The scene ends as Vaan and the party walks into the scene.]
    
    Vaan: Rikken, you all right?
    
    [Rikken shouts as the everyone tuns, Rikken with his weapon out.]
    
    Rikken: We don't take kindly to claim jumpers...kupo? This treasure's ours!
    
    Vaan: This is no time to show off! I know those aren't your Espers.
    
    Penelo: If anything happens to them, we'll never find out what they know about
    the Judge of Wings.
    
    [Vaan seems to disagree, but Penelo insists, and he gives up. He then faces
    the sky pirate with his weapon out.]
    
    Vaan: I guess we better help 'em out.
    
    Filo: And the treasure. Don't forget about the treasure!
    
    [Llyud walks over to Vaan.]
    
    Llyud: Vaan, the Yarhi they've called: they are sahagin. Sahagin are
    vulnerable to lightning attacks. If you attack their weakness, you can make
    quick work of them.
    
    Vaan: Right. Thanks for the advice.
    
    Skysea Mission:
    Rikken's scavenger hunt has special rules limiting the size of the party that
    can participate. Take care when choosing your battle party.
    
    Objective:
    Open all of the treasure chests!
    At least one ally must survive.
    Rikken, Elza, or Raz must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations.]
    
    Vaan: Don't forget to keep an eye on Rikken and the others!
    
    [Commence.]
    
    [Battle commences, as the small party makes their way to each of the treasure
    chests. On the way, they run into Raz.]
    
    Raz: Loot as loot can!
    
    [After meeting Raz, they then meet up with Rikken.]
    
    Rikken: I see how it is. You saunter up making like to help, only to nab the
    treasure out from under us!
    
    [After meeting up with Rikken, they then meet up with Elza.]
    
    Elza: If you're trying to ingratiate yourself to us, don't bother.
    
    [After all the treasure chests are opened up, Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are talking with Rikken and his group on the
    beach.]
    
    Rikken: That's the way of it, then? Small wonder you're keen to track down
    this judge.
    
    Vaan: Anything you can tell us would be a big help.
    
    [Rikken turns around.]
    
    Rikken: So, you want to be knowing who this self-styled judge is and where
    she's gone off to, eh?
    
    [He turns back around and swings his weapon.]
    
    Rikken: Meaningless trivialities.
    
    [Camera fades out to a very high very of the party. Vaan annoyed, Filo and
    Kytes laughing.]
    
    Vaan: What?
    
    Rikken: You've got to keep your eye on the prize. The cutter. The shiny stuff.
    The treasure!
    
    Vaan: This is going nowhere.
    
    [Penelo walks up towards Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: I'm starting to think you don't know anything that can help us after
    all.
    
    [Elza and Raz look at each other, then everyone watches Riken as he runs off.]
    
    Rikken: Knowledge is well and good, but treasure is so much better. Leap
    before you look, yes? And now we best be leapin' off to the next spot of
    treasure!
    
    [Rikken shouts again, and Elza and Raz run off as well, Vaan shrugs.]
    
    Penelo: Looks like we'll have to find the treasure on our own.
    
    Filo: More treasure hunting?
    Kytes: You promise?
    
    [Vaan walks up and nods.]
    
    Vaan: Right, let's go!
    
    [Filo and Kytes jump up and down.]
    
    Filo: Yay!
    Kytes: Let's go! Let's go!
    
    [Vaan runs off, Kytes and Filo then follow. Penelo turns to Llyud and sighs,
    before they too walk away. End scene.]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - 4-1 Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {At the beginning, while at the Sky Saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: I say we make this area a cafe. After all, who can fight on an empty
    stomach? I'll take care of the kitchen.
    
    [Kytes jumps.]
    
    Kytes: Penelo's cooking? I dunno...
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Really, Kytes. There's no need to be rude about it. I know I'm not the
    greatest chef, or even a halfway decent cook for that matter, but still.
    
    Vaan: Don't sell yourself short! I'd love it if you cooked for us.
    
    Kytes: Speak for yourself, Vaan.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: Everything in the sky saloon has Tomaj's name on it. I think he's a
    little insecure.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: I dunno, Vaan. This talk about Penelo cooking has me worried.
    
    Vaan: She cooked for us all the time in Rabanastre. I don't remember anybody
    complaining then.
    
    Kytes: We just didn't want her to feel bad. But up here, we're trapped!
    
    Vaan: I'll let you in on a little secret, Kytes. If you swallow it without
    chewing, you don't taste a thing!
    
    Kytes: Is that supposed to make me feel better?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: It looks like Ba'Gamnan really likes the cafe. Maybe he sees something
    in Penelo's cooking that we don't.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Of all the mutinous-! Grragh! What gives those pretty
    ne'er-do-wells the right to cut me out! Without me, they're nothing! And
    that's all that'll be left of 'em when I'm done!
    
    Vaan: If you ask me, you're getting all worked up over nothin'.
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Quit your jabberin', boy! When I want your opinion, I'll beat it
    out of ya!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan again.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Does that jaw of yours never stop flappin'?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo, she looks tired.]
    
    Filo: Hi, Vaan. (sigh)
    
    Vaan: You don't look so good, Filo. You feeling all right?
    
    Filo: I'm just tired. Don't worry, I'll be fine.
    
    Penelo: Listen up, everyone! I'm making special soup for dinner tonight, so
    save room!
    
    Filo: Yuck. Now I think I am feeling sick.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: I don't feel so super after that soup. Oh sorry, I forgot you actually
    like Penelo's cooking.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Nice of you to drop by, Vaan! I've gotten in a few new items you might
    be interested in. Rare aegyl and sky pirate equipment at prices you wouldn't
    believe.
    
    Vaan: Actually, I wanted to ask you about that. How come you charge us for all
    this?
    
    Tomaj: Do you think these wares are going to stock themselves? It's simple:
    You make money, I sell you weapons, take that money, and buy new, stronger
    weapons. So have a look at the notice board, get out there, and make some
    money!
    
    Vaan: Right...
    
    Tomaj: Day or night, rain or shine, we're open for business! What'll it be?
    [Shows shop options.]
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: You don't think anyone's expecting to get paid for working here, do you?
    
    Vaan: I doubt Llyud does, but Penelo might be a different story.
    
    Tomaj: Hmm, I better think about that when setting my prices...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj and third time.]
    
    Tomaj: This kind of reminds me of working at the Sandsea back in Rabanastre. I
    hope I have a job waiting for me when we get back...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: I believe this is another of Tomaj's shops.
    
    [Tomaj runs over.]
    
    Tomaj: Yes, but not just any shop. This shop specializes in materials for the
    forge. Here you can sell materials you find in battle, or buy new ones. Come
    by whenever you need that last hard-to-find material you've been looking for.
    
    Vaan: None of that explains why Llyud is running the shop.
    
    Tomaj: he's as entitled to work here as anyone else. I couldn't very well deny
    him the honor, could I?
    
    Llyud: I would not protest.
    
    Tomaj: Don't be modest! You've earned this privilege. Okay, back to work!
    
    Llyud: What is it you seek? [Shows menu options.]
    
    I'm here about materials.
    I just wanted to talk.
    Nothing. Thanks anyway.
    
    [Choose the materials.]
    
    Llyud: To what end?
    
    Got anything good?
    I've got some things to sell.
    I changed me mind.
    
    [Choose the first two to access the menu, choose the third one.]
    
    Llyud: Will there be anything else? [Back to initial options.]
    
    [Choose I just wanted to talk.]
    
    Llyud: What is there to talk about? There, now we have talked.
    
    [Choose nothing, thanks anyway.]
    
    Llyud: Very well.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith.]
    
    Cu Sith: Thank you for coming!
    
    [Tomaj runs over.]
    
    Tomaj: This is the forge. Cu Sith over there is our artificer.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Master artificer. And I must object to you calling
    me "Cu Sith." I do not call you "hume."
    
    Tomaj: The difference is there are lots of humes here, and only one of you.
    Stubborn thing, but with the right materials she can make weapons better than
    most you'll find. She'll ask you some questions before starting, so be sure to
    pay attention.
    
    Vaan: So you summoned this, uh...Cu Sith just to man the forge?
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: It's not so simple as that, but I do answer to
    Master Tomaj. That's all you should need to know.
    
    Tomaj: It's a long story, and not a particularly interesting one. If I were
    you, I'd worry about getting the right materials to Cu Sith. It's worth the
    trouble!
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Thank you for coming! How may I help you today?
    [Shows menu options.]
    
    I need something crafted.
    Tell me something!
    Just passing through.
    
    [Choose I need something crafted.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Before we begin, I believe a brief explanation is
    in order. First, you must choose the weapon you want me to craft. Then I will
    ask you some questions-the better to tailor the weapon to your needs. There
    are no answers right or wrong. Simply say the first thing that pops into your
    head!
    
    [Enters the menu, make an item. Then answer her questions however you like.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: I will begin without further delay.
    
    [Cu Sith starts making the item using the questions given to her.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Here you are, all ready to go. You'll not find a
    finer piece of craftsmanship.
    
    [Your given the item, and can name it, after that, get out of the menu.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Can I otherwise be of assistance? [Shows initial
    options.]
    
    [Choose tell me something.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: I owe Master Tomaj more than you can know! If there
    is any way I can help him, I will try!
    
    [Choose third option.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Come back anytime!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk to the Yarhi nearest to Llyud, which is sitting on the ground.]
    
    [Vaan scratches his head, and the Yarhi gets up.]
    
    Peculiar Yarhi: The great nomenclator Namingway bids you good tidings, sir.
    I'm afraid I dozed off a moment and awoke in this curious place.
    
    Peculiar Yarhi: I've a penchant for ascribing names. Might I inquire whether
    you harbor such inclinations? Perhaps I might tempt you to rename your ship...
    What do you say?
    
    [You can now change your ship name.Do as you wish, and he will walk away. End
    talk.]
    
    [Talk with female aegyl to the top left of the Sky Saloon.]
    
    Troubled Aegyl: We ought be thankful we escaped with our lives, but what life
    have we without our home? Aegyl are not meant to travel the skies in these
    crude vessels.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with female aegyl to the top right of the Sky Saloon.]
    
    Aegyl Survivor: My people harbor no love of disorder. Even should the sky
    pirates fail to steal the Stones, they've already robbed us of our peace.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the male aegyl to the top right of the Sky Saloon.]
    
    Aegyl Deserter: All auracite derives from the auraliths. The astral crystal
    left when the auralith was destroyed is a rare variety of auracite. You can
    channel the power that accumulates in the crystal to fortify your Yarhi.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk to the Yarhi again, who has now moved near Tomaj's shop.]
    
    Namingway: A new name breathes life into a tiresome journey, don't you agree?
    What say you put the wind back in your sails with a new moniker for your
    trusty ship?
    
    [If you don't change the name, end talk. If you do change the name, end talk
    and talk with Namingway again.]
    
    Namingway: Zzz...I'm having the strangest dream... Zzz... In it, you're giving
    the ship a new name... Zzz...Will you make my dream come true?
    
    [If you don't change the name, end talk. If you do change the name, end talk
    and talk with Namingway a fourth time.]
    
    Namingway: My, you must be chilly in attire such as that. A toasty new name
    ought to warm the ship up a bit. How about it?
    
    [Once again, if you don't change the name, end talk. If you do change the
    name, end talk and talk with Namingway a fifth time.]
    
    Namingway: I can see the Muse of Inspiration behind your eyes! Care to rename
    your ship?
    
    [If you don't change the name, end talk. If you do change the name, end talk
    and talk with Namingway once again.]
    
    Namingway: (cough) My throat grows parched aboard this vessel. Would you be so
    kind as to what my palate with a new ship name?
    
    [If you don't change the name, end talk. If you do change the name, end talk
    and talk with Namingway again.]
    
    Namingway: Find a pleasant sound, stir in cleverness, add a dash of wit, and
    there you have it-a new name! How about one for your ship?
    
    [That should be all seven conversations you have with them, they just keep
    repeating in any order from number 2-7.]
    
    {Head back to the bridge, DO NOT advance the story.}
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: The Judge of Wings was using the Cache to syphon energy from the
    auralith.
    
    Vaan: Do you think we could restore an auralith if we found a way to return
    that energy?
    
    Llyud: I cannot say.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: The Muruc Cahuac Skysea is the largest isle in Lemures.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Head over to the message board.}
    
    Tomaj: Don't get ahead of yourself, Vaan. If you're heading out, talk to Filo
    first.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Advance the story, but stay at the bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Llyud hasn't been the same since the auralith. They're really
    important to the aegyl, aren't they...
    
    Vaan: Yeah. That couldn't have been easy for him. We have to stop the Judge of
    Wings before this happens again.
    
    Penelo: We will.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: We can't be the only sky pirates out here trying to help the aegyl. If
    we find any others, we should bring them onto the airship. Strength in
    numbers, right?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Filo teases me because I don't go charging into battle. I say it's
    better to think first, charge second.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: Haven't seen your name in the log lately, Vaan. Don't forget, you
    promised Penelo!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: We've made a sky saloon that would be the envy of the East Ivalice
    Company itself. But it still feels like it could use something...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {After taking the ship off, return back to the airship's bridge.}
    
    Filo: C'mon, Vaan. I'm ready for some real adventure!
    
    {Check the notice board.}
    
    Baubles and Banditry
    
    A band of ill-favored sky pirates on Tormelados is forcing aegyl to do their
    dirty work on the Kisne Rise. Teach them a lesson they won't soon forget.
    
    Easier Said Than Done
    
    The aegyl that have taken shelter on the ship mentioned a cache of materials
    in the temple gardens on Tormelados. It's guarded by the usual nasties, but
    nothing you can't manage.
    
    Harmony in Discord
    
    The auralith chamber in the shrine on Tormelados teems with monsters. Hardly
    the proper respect for so sacred a place. I think a hunt is in order.
    
    The Trodden Past
    
    Sky pirates have been raiding a ruin on Tormelados known to the aegyl as the
    Shadow of Paharo. It's a special place they've protected for centuries. It
    wouldn't do to let it fall to sky pirates now.
    
    {After heading over to Port Marilith, before advancing the story any more.}
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: I'd know that ship anywhere! They'll regret puttin' in to this port.
    
    Vaan: They being your lackeys, I'm guessing?
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Bite yer tongue! This is no concern of yours. I don't need lackeys
    to handle your sort. Lucky for you I've got other scores to settle.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ba'Gamnan again.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Only one thing stands between me and sweet revenge...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with aegyl to the most northwest.]
    
    Sea-dwelling Aegyl: I had heard what an unruly bunch these sky pirates were,
    but I had not imagined...this. Still, that they walk among us in peace is more
    than can be said of those on the other islands.
    
    [Talk with female aegyl nearby.]
    
    Port Watch: We never fly to traverse he skysea. A seagoing vessel is the only
    fitting way to cross. It is a display of humility in honor of the shrine that
    lies beneath its waves.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: I smell danger... And where there's danger, there's treasure! Don't
    worry, I can take care of myself!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Hey there, Llyud! Having a good time?
    
    Llyud: A good time?
    
    Vaan: Oh, right, I forgot. This probably isn't the aegyl idea of fun. Sorry!
    
    Llyud: What a strange manner of being you humes are.
    
    Vaan: How's that?
    
    Llyud: Your facial expressions change so greatly from one moment to the next.
    
    Vaan: I guess you can see right through me.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: The aegyl of this island hide themselves to avoid the commotion.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: The air is so crisp you can taste it! It's more of a bazaar than a
    battle. But don't get carried away, Vaan. We still have the Judge of Wings to
    look for.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Who'd have thought there'd be so many sky pirates here. You don't think
    it's a trap, do you?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Bangaa sky pirate to the right of Kytes.]
    
    Reckless Sky Pirate: When I heard Rikken was holdin' a hunt, I got here fast
    as fast can. Aye, maybe too fast. I wrecked our ship bringin' her in t'port.
    Thought I'd make the money needed to fix her in Rikken's tourney, but then I
    heard about the fee...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the moogle sky pirate to the left of the Bangaa.]
    
    Land-bound Sky Pirate: They say any landing you can walk away from is a good
    one, but they haven't seen my poor ship, kupo! After our pilot's so-called
    landing, I'll be lucky to sell her for scrap.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the white mage sky pirate.]
    
    Insolvent Sky Pirate: That Rikken's mad if he thinks anyone would pay such a
    fee! If I had that kind of money I wouldn't need auracite in the first place.
    I don't suppose you've any gil to lend a fellow sky pirate, eh?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {When heading over to the ship, in the conversation between you and Rikken.}
    
    [After asking what's all the commotion, ask again.]
    
    Rikken: Anything else on your mind? [Back to options.]
    
    [Chose the first option again.]
    
    Rikken: To the one who finds the most auracite, a prize befitting such a fine
    sky pirate- [He gestures again.] A chalice bearing my likeness!
    
    [Filo jumps up and down.]
    
    Filo: Ooh! I want it!
    
    Raz: Then step right up!
    
    Elza: There is the matter of your entry fee: one hundred thousand gil.
    
    Vaan: A hundred thousand gil just to go on a scavenger hunt!?
    
    Rikken: One hundred thousand a head, mind you.
    
    [Vaan looks down.]
    
    Vaan: Now that's sky piracy.
    
    Rikken: Anything else on your mind? [Back to options.]
    
    [Choose the What's all the commotion a third time.]
    
    Rikken: So, what's it to be, then? Are you in? [Options.]
    
    Sure, why not!
    You've gotta be kidding!
    
    [Choose you've gotta be kidding.]
    
    Rikken: What manner of sky pirate looks treasure in the eye and turns away?
    
    Vaan: That's not really fair-
    
    Elza: No sky pirate at all.
    Raz: A sorry excuse for a pirate is what that is.
    
    [Vaan looks down.]
    
    Rikken: Anything else on your mind? [Back to first options.]
    
    [Choose the first one again, then choose Sure why not.]
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan, I don't know how to break this to you, but we don't have that
    kind of money.
    
    [Filo jumps up and down then stops.]
    
    Rikken: No scavenger hunt, then?
    Filo: Yeah, no scavenger hunt?
    
    Vaan: I really don't need this right now...
    
    Rikken: Anything else on your mind? [Back to first options.]
    
    {After asking about the Judge of Wings.}
    
    [Choose the second one again.]
    
    Rikken: You wouldn't be testing my patience now, would you? I'll talk no more
    of that unjust imposter!
    
    Rikken: Anything else on your mind? [Back to options.]
    
    {After forwarding the scene after talking to Rikken.}
    
    [Talk with Raz.]
    
    Raz: Hmm...Most interesting. Yes, no doubt about it. A proper sky pirate,
    that's what I see before me.
    
    Elza: You can't see anything from down there!
    
    Vaan: What's there to see from up here?
    
    Elza: The eyes. It's all in the eyes. You've got dreams in yours.
    
    Raz: If I'd eyes like that, I'd surely be competing for Rikken's Cup!
    
    Vaan: Now I see where this is going...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Raz again.]
    
    Raz: The game is afoot! Sky pirates scavenge the islands even as we speak.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Elza.]
    
    Elza: Is one hundred thousand gil so much to pay for hopes and dreams? I would
    say it's a steal.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Rikken.]
    
    Rikken: Finally come to your senses? Enter while you can!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {After leaving the port town, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: I never dreamed we'd run into Rikken here.
    
    Vaan: And holding an auracite scavenger hunt of all things.
    
    Penelo: Still, it was nice to see them again. Up until now, it seems like
    we've just gone from one battle to the next. We wouldn't want Kytes and Filo
    to think that's all there is to being a sky pirate.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: Where have Rikken and the others run off to now? No, don't tell me-
    treasure hunting.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: Sky pirates can be most...resourceful.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: C'mon, Vaan. I'm ready for some real adventure!
    
    Vaan: What, this isn't adventure enough for you? I'm not sure you could take
    much more than this.
    
    Filo: It's all right, I know how to handle myself.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: The high seas are calling! And seas don't get much higher than the
    skysea!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Arr! It were about time you showed up! I've got me a nose for treasure,
    and it's high time we went lookin' for some!
    
    Vaan: Who're you supposed to be? Raz?
    
    Kytes: How'd you guess? I think I picked up more than the accent from talkin'
    to him, though. I think he's got the right idea about being a sky pirate. It's
    about adventure!
    
    Vaan: Great. Now all you need is a parrot.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: Arr... That were all I could stand to do. Back to my old self!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Ba'Gamnan's run off, has he? I always knew he was all bluster and no
    bite. Well, good riddance. I'll take Cu Sith over him any day.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Please note that when heading back to the Sky Saloon, Kytes still talks about
    Ba'Gamnan as if he's still on the ship.}

    - 4-2 Pirates and Parrot in Peril!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [Back at the world map, the camera is fixed on an island west of Isshu.]
    
    You can now travel to Cebe, Isle of Treasures!
    
    Cebe, Isles of Treasures
    
    Isolated isle rich in natural resources. It is known to the aegyl only as
    "Cebe," its more colorful name owing to Rikken's band of sky pirates.
    
    Pirates and Parrot in Peril!
    
    In the end, Rikken had little new to say, so the search for the judge is back
    where it started. Rikken wastes no time finding trouble again.
    
    Mission 4-2
    Pirates and Parrot in Peril!
    Cebe, Isle of Treasures
    
    [Camera shows sky pirates on many cliff surfaces buffing their stats up with
    skills. At the bottom is Rikken and his group, also doing the same. Vaan and
    party run into the scene behind Rikken.]
    
    Vaan: Rikken!
    
    [Rikken notices them and turns around, then turns back around.]
    
    Rikken: You again? Keep your nose in your own business! Though as long as
    you're here, maybe you can help.
    
    Vaan: Well, which is it?
    
    Elza: There's a fight a-brewin'.
    
    Vaan: Need us to save your skins again?
    
    Raz: They don't fight fair, the cowards! You don't see us hiding behind
    conjured pets!
    
    Rikken: Perhaps you could lend a hand or two. We wouldn't want too much help,
    though. We've our pride to consider. I should think two of you ought to about
    do it.
    
    [Rikken swings his weapon, Vaan gives up.]
    
    Vaan: Fine, as long as we get to keep whatever treasure we find.
    
    [Rikken spins around, Filo and Kytes jump up and down.]
    
    Objective:
    Destroy the enemy soul crystal!
    Your soul crystal must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Rikken turns to your party, who is on the beach.]
    
    Rikken: We fight our way, and you fight yours. Try and remember that, eh?
    
    [Commence!]
    
    [The small party and Rikken's group fight their way through the sky pirates,
    using the soul crystal to their advantage. Eventually, the headed up to the
    top of the cliff, and took out the enemy soul crystal. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, halfway through the level, Vaan's party and Rikken's are
    talking. Rikken spins around.]
    
    Rikken: Ah, thanks for the help! But don't go expectin' a show of gratitude.
    
    Vaan: Then whaddaya call that?
    
    [Rikken realises.]
    
    Rikken: You're far to literal. Until next we meet!
    
    [Rikken runs away, Elza and Raz follow. End scene.]
    
    [Scene starts again on the beach. As Vaan and party are about to leave the
    area...]
    
    Tomaj: Lo, Vaan!
    
    [Tomaj comes from the top of the place and runs down to Vaan and party on the
    beach.]
    
    Vaan: What's the good word, Tomaj?
    
    Tomaj: I've hit the jackpot this time. Found a temple below this very island.
    
    Penelo: Not bad. I have to admit, I'm impressed.
    
    Tomaj: Those streetears in Archades could learn a thing or two watching ol'
    Tomaj at work. What can I say, I have a knack for this sort of thing.
    
    [Vaan ponders, Penelo looks at Vaan.]
    
    Vaan: So this underground temple- is the Judge of Wings there, too?
    
    Tomaj: A man likes to keep his secrets, but I can see you won't be satisfied
    until you've heard the whole of it. The judge, yes, but not just that. There's
    treasure to be had!
    
    [Filo and Kytes run to either side of Vaan, jumping up and down.]
    
    Kytes: Did someone say "treasure"?
    Filo: Ooohh!
    
    Tomaj: Now I'm off. I won't learn much of value standing around talking to
    you, will I?
    
    [Tomaj runs off. Everyone looks at each other at agrees, then they too run
    off. End scene.]

    - 4-2 Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Before starting Mission 4-2, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Seeing Rikken, Elza, and Raz brings back the good old days.
    
    Vaan: You don't meet people like that just anywhere.
    
    Penelo: They're dyed-in-the-wool pirates, that's for sure.
    
    Vaan: With their heads in the clouds.
    
    Penelo: You should know.
    
    Vaan: Yeah. Hey, wait...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: Oh, I meant to tell you I invited some sky pirates from Port Marilith
    aboard. They were shipwrecked, and they didn't have anywhere else to go. Hope
    you don't mind.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: A curious sensation, to fly without wings.
    
    Vaan: I guess the aegyl wouldn't get much use out of an airship.
    
    Llyud: Only rarely do we even travel between the islands.
    
    Vaan: Really? You seem to know a lot about everywhere we've been so far.
    
    Llyud: As a warrior it is my duty to know. And I confess I have always been
    curious about how others live.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: I had seen airships before, but never had I set foot on one before
    meeting you.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: Where are we headed next, Vaan?
    
    Vaan: You shouldn't be in such a hurry all the time. Remember, getting there
    is half the fun.
    
    Filo: But if we're not going anywhere, we're not getting anywhere!
    
    Vaan: All right, I get the message.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: Isn't Elza great? That's exactly the kind of pirate I wanna be when I
    grow up!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Do you think it's safe letting all those sky pirates onboard?
    
    Vaan: They're friends of Rikken's. How bad could they be?
    
    Kytes: But they actually like Penelo's cooking! They can't be normal.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: Have you been keeping up with the log, Vaan? It's probably time I made
    an entry myself.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: You probably noticed already, but this airship isn't like the ships in
    Ivalice. No glossair rings or engines, no skystone...it's a wonder it flies at
    all.
    
    Vaan: It started moving when we brought the Cache onboard, so it's probably
    from Lemures.
    
    Tomaj: I'd still feel better knowing a bit more about how it worked.
    
    Vaan: It hasn't let us down so dar.
    
    Tomaj: That's one way to look at it.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: I've gotta hand it to Rikken. This scavenger hunt was a brilliant idea.
    With entry fees alone, he's probably made more than I'll see in a lifetime.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Back at the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Those sky pirates were stuck with no ship and nowhere to go, so I let
    them stay here. You don't mind, do you?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: These sky pirates are supposed to be friends of Rikken. I know they
    lost their airship, but I'm still not sure Penelo should've invited them to
    come with us.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Note again, talk to Kytes afterwards and he still talks about how much
    Ba'Gamnan likes the cafe, even with him no longer there.}
    
    [Talk with Filo, scene starts.]
    
    Filo: Hey, Vaan! You have to see what Cu Sith made! She calls it a "memento."
    Don't you think it'll look great in here?
    
    Vaan: What's it do?
    
    Filo: Well, nothing, really. It's just for decoration. Cu Sith said she'd make
    one for us each time we performed some kind of feat. Like when you've fought
    so many battles or enlisted so many Yarhi. I should be fun seeing what sort of
    things she considers "worthy." If she gives you any more, just ask and I'll
    put them on display for you.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: What's up, Vaan? [Options.]
    
    I have a memento for you.
    I wanted to talk.
    Just passing by.
    
    [Choose the first one, make any kind of decoration.]
    
    Filo: You sure? [Options.]
    
    No doubt about it.
    On second thought...
    
    [Choose the first one.]
    
    Filo: All set, then! A place for everything, and everything in its place!
    
    Filo: Got any others for me? [Options.]
    
    Make room for one more!
    No, that's it for now.
    
    [Choose the second one.]
    
    Filo: See you round!
    
    [Talk with Filo again, choose the first option, then get out.]
    
    Filo: Need anything else? [Back to first options, leave the conversation.]
    
    [Talk with the moogle sky pirate near Kytes.]
    
    Land-bound Sky Pirate: We met in Port Marilith. Don't tell me you've forgotten
    already, kupo! And lucky we did. If Penelo hadn't invited us aboard, we'd
    still be stranded there! Not only is she nice, but she's quite the cook, kupo.
    Don't let that one slip away!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with that sky pirate again.]
    
    Land-bound Sky Pirate: Food like this a body could get used to. Kupo!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the bangaa sky pirate near the moogle.]
    
    Reckless Sky Pirate: Haven't seen you since Port Marilith. We're Rikken's
    maters, aye. With no ship an' nowhere to go, it's a passenger's like for us.
    Not to worry. You won't even know we're here. Quiet as dormouse, that's what I
    am.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Bangaa again.]
    
    Reckless Sky Pirate: That lass o' yours cooks a fine meal, I must say.
    Seconds? Aye, don't mind if I do.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {During the battle.}
    
    [When Rikken dies.]
    
    Rikken: These ones hurt... They REALLY hurt...
    
    [End.]
    
    [When Rikken comes back from the soul crystal.]
    
    Rikken: Ha ha! Can't keep a good sky pirate down!
    
    [End.]
    
    [When Raz dies.]
    
    Raz: I'm done for, but please... save the parrot!
    
    [End]
    
    [When Raz comes back from the soul crystal.]
    
    Raz: Now you've gone and riled me for true! You'll pay thrice over for what
    you've done!
    
    [End.]
    
    [When Elza dies.]
    
    Elza: The stars...so bright...
    
    [End.]
    
    [When Elza comes back from the soul crystal.]
    
    Elza: I should like to have stayed down a little longer, but one does as one
    must.
    
    [End.]
    
    [When Rikken dies a second time.]
    
    Rikken: Hrngh... Still had a thing or two I wanted to show them...
    
    [End.]
    
    [When Rikken comes back from the soul crystal again.]
    
    Rikken: Back for revenge! I'll no go so easy on you this time!
    
    [End.]
    
    [When Raz dies again.]
    
    Raz: Argh! A bitter fraught, this...
    
    [End.]
    
    [When Raz comes back from the soul crystal again.]
    
    Raz: I've some fight left in me! I'm small of limb, not of spirit!
    
    [End.]
    
    [After Rikken dies a third time, then comes back from the soul crystal.]
    
    Rikken: No trifle such as death can stop the mighty Rikken!
    
    [End.]
    
    [After Raz dies a third time and comes back from the soul crystal.]
    
    Raz: I'll show you a bangaa as takes to the skies is not to be taken lightly!
    
    [End.]
    
    [After Raz dies a fourth time.]
    
    Raz: Brave I were, thought I. Look now where it's landed me...
    
    [End.]
    
    [Elza dies a third time.]
    
    Elza: I feel Death's venomed fangs pierce my heart...
    
    [End.]
    
    [Elza comes back a third time.]
    
    Elza: Down, but not for the count.
    
    [End.]
    
    [Rikken dies again.]
    
    Rikken: Ungrhh... Tougher than I'd.... credited....
    
    [End.]

    - 4-3 Unrelenting Nemesis
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [Camera shows a place to the edge of the water in the skysea.]
    
    You can now travel to Yapih Caverns!
    
    Yapih Caverns
    
    A scolding cavern of lava and flame rising from a rocky outcropping extending
    to the southeast of the skysea. Ruins fill the cavern, forming a crude trail
    to the temple hidden deep within.
    
    Unrelenting Nemesis
    
    While the others were busy with Rikken, Tomaj had his ear to the ground. His
    efforts discovered an underground shrine the party now moves to explore.
    Familiar foes and a fantastic find await.
    
    [Bwagi, Rinok and Gijuk are walking through the heated cavern, stop and look
    at each other, then keep moving.]
    
    Mission 4-3
    Unrelenting Nemesis
    Yapih Caverns
    
    [Vaan and party are walking down a pathway. The party stops and Vaan turns
    around.]
    
    Vaan: Is there really a temple down here?
    
    [A different view of the cavern shows a long way down, as Penelo, Filo and
    Kytes are looking around everywhere. All of a sudden, a shout comes from
    behind and Rikken, Elza and Raz run straight past the party.]
    
    Rikkken: Well, well! Wherever we go, there you are!
    
    [Vaan turns to the party and nods his head.]
    
    Vaan: Great, competition. No time to waste!
    
    [Penelo agrees. Kytes jumps up and down.]
    
    Objective:
    Find the temple!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Vaan summons nothing. Commence!]
    
    [Vaan and party battle their way through the hot dungeon, and race with
    Rikken, Elza and Raz for the treasure inside. While making their way, a scene
    starts with the three bangaas.]
    
    Bwagi: The gutter churls, come to play again? It's time we put an end to their
    like for good and all!
    
    [A noise is heard from within the chamber.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: You have far worse things to worry over than a band of wee ones!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan runs from inside the chamber. He slices all three of the bangaa,
    then dances in the middle of them with his weapon in hand, before stopping,
    camera shaking. Ba'Gamnan is puffing.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Bah! Churls and traitors both- I'll carve the lot of you!
    
    [Back to Rikken.]
    
    Rikken: What's this now? Ba'Gamnan in the scaly flesh?
    
    Raz: I'd as soon consort with sharks. Let's nab such treasure as we can and be
    off!
    
    Vaan: Glad to know everyone's still looking out for themselves.
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Ba'Gamnan!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [The party continue up the massive fire dungeon. As the party nears closer to
    Ba'Gamnan, Lamias come out of nowhere from behind.]
    
    [The party, with the help of Rikken's group, take out Ba'Gamnan. Mission
    Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, outside the temple entrance. Ba'Gamnan has fallen to the
    floor. ear him is Vaan's and Rikken's group.]
    
    Vaan: Well, we don't have "Ba'Gamnan's Bane" anymore. What should we do? Tie
    him up?
    
    [Filo walks over to Ba'Gamnan and bends over to him.]
    
    Filo: Isn't there something else we could do? Doesn't seem right, just tying
    him up like that.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan gets up, Filo surprised, lets out a scream.]
    
    Filo: Aiieee!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan knocks Filo out, and takes her up further into the temple.]
    
    Vaan: You're gonna be sorry!
    Penelo: He ran off with Filo!
    
    [Everyone else runs in, end scene.]

    - 4-3 Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Before starting Mission 4-3, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Kytes and Filo have really hit it off with Rikken and the others.
    
    Vaan: All battle and no play makes for gloomy children.
    
    Penelo: I just hope they don't forget that this isn't all fun and games. The
    Judge of Wings is still out there.
    
    Vaan: Leave it to me. I won't let anything happen to 'em.
    
    Penelo: I knew I could count on you, Vaan.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: You don't suppose we'll see Rikken again anytime soon, do you?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: Are all in the underworld so... animated?
    
    Vaan: What, like Rikken? No, he's... one of a kind. But I guess it's more
    common in Ivalice than Lemures. You aegyl are all so...quiet.
    
    Llyud: Are we?
    
    Vaan: Don't you have festivals, feasts, anything like that?
    
    Llyud: No. We gather only when there is a need. Idle chatter hods no lure for
    us.
    
    Vaan: Now that you mention it, you're the most talkative aegyl I've met. And
    that's not saying much.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: The Judge of Wings has come for another Stone.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: An underground shrine- how exciting! Do you think there's any treasure
    inside?
    
    Vaan: I wouldn't get my hopes up. Tomaj is the one who told us about it, after
    all.
    
    Filo: Heh, I hadn't thought of that. Well, if there' not treasure, there not
    be any Judge of Wings, either!
    
    Vaan: You've got it backwards. We're here for the Judge of Wings, not the
    treasure.
    
    Filo: Oh, right...of course!
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: I think I like treasure hunting more than judge hunting.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: I wonder what happened to Ba'Gamnan.
    
    Vaan: He didn't have a ship, so he's probably still stuck on the skysea.
    
    Kytes: For all we know he could be passed out dying of hunger...
    
    Vaan: You're not worried about him, are you?
    
    Kytes: Not really, but I hope he's okay.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: Maybe Ba'Gamnan went looking for those other bangaa friends of his.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: I'll bet you never expected to find an underground temple out here, am
    I right?
    
    Vaan: I gotta admit, you really came through for us this time.
    
    Tomaj: Whaddaya mean this time? When have I ever been anything short of
    indispensable?
    
    Vaan: Sorry, didn't mean to ruffle any feathers.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: We're not the only sky pirates headed to that temple, y'know. Don't let
    them beat us to it!
    
    [End talk.]

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mission 4-4
    Filo in a Bind
    Underfane of Yaxin Qul
    
    [The party runs in as Ba'Gamnan is tying Filo up.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Hrrrahhh...
    
    [Filo gets up from the floor, sitting down.]
    
    Filo: (cough cough)
    
    [Camera back to Vaan, Penelo, Kytes and Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Filo! Are you okay?
    
    Penelo: I think there's something wrong with her. We'd better hurry!
    
    [The party gets ready. The camera moves to the southeast, where Rikken and his
    group are. Rikken faces his group.]
    
    Rikken: Taking a helpless young child- a lady, at that- captive. Most
    unbecoming.
    
    Elza: Can't sink much lower than that.
    
    Raz: Arrr, aye. Incorrigible.
    
    [Vaan and party are facing Rikken's group, Vaan calling out.]
    
    Vaan: You're wasting your breath on him. What say you lend us a hand rescuing
    her?
    
    Elza: What's it to be, then, Rikken?
    
    Rikken: If they were to scratch our backs, I se no reason we might not return
    the favor.
    
    [The party is happy, Kytes jumping up and down.]
    
    Vaan: All right, all right. You can keep the treasure, just help us save Filo!
    
    Rikken: Ha ha ha! An offer not entirely unfair, but not quite what I'd had in
    mind.
    
    [He turns to his group.]
    
    Rikken: Am I not right?
    
    Raz: Right you are! This is no common foe. That's Ba'Gamnan you ask us to take
    to task!
    
    Elza: We'll need just compense for danger such as this.
    
    Vaan: Fine, just tell me what it is you want.
    
    [Rikken's party gets excited, Rikken letting out a shout.]
    
    Rikken: To see a smile on her bright little face. I'll settle for no less!
    
    Vaan: Thanks, Rikken. I owe you one!
    
    [Vaan's party turns and agrees.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Ba'Gamnan!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [The party turn towards Ba'Gamnan, Vaan swinging his sword. Battle
    preparations.]
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [In the Underfane of Yaxin Qul, Vaan and party are surrounded by enemies, with
    Ba'Gamnan at the end. Using what resources were at hand, and the help from
    Rikken and his group, the party takes out Ba'Gamnan, Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Penelo is healing Filo where she was, the party standing
    around her, Ba'Gamnan lying down where he was slain. After a few heals, she
    gets up.]
    
    Filo: I'm really sorry. Seem like whatever I do I just end up getting into
    trouble. Always runnin' off half-cocked... Maybe I should just head back to
    Rabanastre.
    
    Penelo: Filo, don't say that.
    
    [Kytes walks up to Filo and jumps.]
    
    Kytes: Listen to Penelo. I mean, sure, you cause a lot of trouble, but no more
    than the rest of us.
    
    [Vaan and Rikken straighten up.]
    
    Kytes: I don't know what I'd do if you weren't here. I really don't think we'd
    have made it this far without you. Really!
    
    Filo: That's sweet, Kytes.
    
    Vaan: He's right. Just having you along more than makes up for, uh... having
    you along!
    
    Rikken: I believe the fee we'd agreed upon called for one bright smile on the
    wee one's face.
    
    Raz: True, true. Without that, this is a regular job at our regular fee. What
    were that again?
    
    Elza: One million gil.
    
    [Vaan runs over to Penelo.]
    
    Vaan: Too rich for my blood. Penelo, work your magick!
    
    Penelo: What magick would that be?
    
    [Filo starts laughing.]
    
    Filo: Ha ha! You two always find a way to make me laugh.
    
    [Rikken spins around.]
    
    Rikken: That's more like it!
    
    [Rikken walks over to Ba'Gamnan and picks him up.]
    
    Rikken: And with the bounty on this one's head, we'll dine well tonight!
    
    [Rikken starts to walk off.]
    
    Raz: A bit frayed round the edges. I hope the bounty were not frayed to match.
    
    [Elza and Raz start to walk off.]
    
    Elza: In that case, we dine on bangaa. So long.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Another scene starts up again, with Filo and Kytes laughing, Vaan and Penelo
    talking among themselves near a summoning gate. All of a sudden, the place
    begins to shake, Llyud heads over to the party.]
    
    Vaan: Is it an earthquake?
    
    [A light flashes, and all but Llyud are affected by a purple light, their
    bodies flashing.]
    
    Filo: Ahhh!
    
    [Another flash.]
    
    Why?
    Why...?
    
    [More flashes, the room dims.]
    
    Penelo: What's happening? I feel... Sad.
    
    [Another flash, the room goes red, Llyud falls to his knees.]
    
    Kytes: Anger... So much anger. Make it stop!
    
    llyud looks towards the party, perfectly okay.
    
    Llyud: What's wrong?
    
    [Another flash and the room becomes dim again.]
    
    Penelo: There's something inside me. It's controlling me feelings.
    
    Vaan: It's the Judge of Wings, it has to be!
    
    Penelo: The Judge of Wings?
    
    Vaan: Just like the time we saw that vision of Balthier.
    
    Vaan: (pant pant)
    
    Penelo: You don't feel anything, Llyud?
    
    Llyud: Nothing.
    
    [Another bright flash, the purple and flashing lights gone from the
    characters, the ground still trembling.]
    
    Vaan: It's coming from deeper within the cave.
    
    Penelo: We'd better go take a look.
    
    [The party runs off inside the cave, end scene.]

    this one.
    
    {Head over to the sky saloon.}

    Ba'Gamnan is defeated with the help of Rikken and friends, and Filo is back
    safe and sound. But they don't have long to stop and rest, as a new darkness
    gathers...
    
    Mission 4-5
    Rite of Despair
    Dais of the Auracite
    
    [Vaan and party run from the inferno in the caverns into a temple room. They
    notice at the end of the room a giant crystalis, emerging from the ground,
    with the colours of a phoenix; gold, orange and red.]
    
    Llyud: This is no auralith. Auracite, yes, but no more than that.
    
    Vaan: So we're in the wrong place.
    
    Penelo: What's that?
    
    [Camera fades out, and shows a more diagonal view of the giant auracite. On
    the floor in front of the giant auracite is a symbol, of which the Judge of
    Wings appears, her dark aura surrounding her. She gets down on her knees in
    front of the symbol, dark aura's being spilled everywhere.]
    
    Vaan: Whatever you're doing, you'd better stop. I won't ask twice!
    
    [After releasing enough dark aura, a summoned beast comes down, and Belias,
    the Gigas appears. Afterwards, she teleports out, while Belias is ready for
    battle.]
    
    [Back to the party, the get themselves ready.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Belias, the Gigas!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, summons spawn around Belias, on top of the ground
    symbol.]
    
    Kytes: More!?
    
    Vaan: Just stay calm, and take 'em down one at a time!
    
    [Back to the party, Commence!]
    
    [The large temple room has been turned into a battlefield as monsters run all
    over the place. Monsters continuously spawn from the floor near Belias. The
    party win in their struggle and take down Belias the Gigas. Mission Complete.
    Afterwards, Vaan starts to glow.]
    
    Defeating Belias has enabled Vaan to use the Pyroclasm quickening!
    
    Pyroclasm deals massive damage to al foes in a given area.
    
    Quickenings
    
    You can use quickenings when the Mist Charge gauge is full.
    
    New quickenings become available as you defeat certain bosses.
    
    [After the battle, the Judge of Wings appears before them, laughing, in front
    of the giant auracite. The camera fades out.]
    
    [The camera fades in again, with the party with their weapons out. The Judge
    of Wings calls upon the symbol on the floor.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Come, Bahamut, ancient lord and master! Purge this wretched
    world of its sorrow!
    
    [More dark energy appears upon the circle, as the place starts to shake.]
    
    Vaan: What are you doing!?
    
    [The party all run up to the Judge of Wings, but all are paralysed when on top
    of the circle. A light from behind rams into Vaan and the party, as the scene
    ends.]
    
    [Movie. Outside the skysea, airships run about, as Bahamut, Lord of the Sky
    appears. Bahamut spins his spear around, and throws it into the sky sea,
    obliterating the ruins and everything around it, Bahamut flies off with the
    skysea crumbling away.]

    Stranded
    Tswarra, Isle of the Lost
    
    [The ship is shown collapsed on a jungle island. Everyone is walking around
    impatiently. Tomaj is fixing the ship while Vaan is walking around in circles.
    He stops, pulls himself together, then starts again. He soon stops again, and
    stares at the ground. He finally turns around and let's out a shout, the
    camera moving to a sky view.]
    
    Vaan: Arrrggghhhh!!!
    
    [Tomaj notices, camera zooms back in.]
    
    Tomaj: If you've got time to pace around in frustration, you've got time to
    lend a hand with the repairs.
    
    [Vaan walks up to Tomaj.]
    
    Vaan: Sorry, Tomaj. It's just so frustrating. Here we are, hot on the judge's
    trail, and this happens.
    
    [Vaan turns around and gets angry.]
    
    Tomaj: Don't complain. It could have been much worse.
    
    Vaan: I'll complain if I want to. When we find that "judge"...
    
    [Vaan runs into the middle of the area. The rest of the party around him.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan. What do you think the Judge of Wings was doing back there?
    
    Vaan: Summoning that Esper named Bahamut, wasn't she?
    
    Llyud: But there was more. The summoning gate was already active.
    
    Vaan: Now that you mention it, there was someone else there, wasn't there?
    
    Penelo: I saw him too. Do you think he helped us escape?
    
    Filo: It couldn't have been Ba'Gamnan. Maybe Rikken?
    
    Kytes: I don't think it was him, either.
    
    [Camera moves over to Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Well, it wasn't me!
    
    [Camera moves back to the party, all pondering.]
    
    Tomaj: Hello! I'm talking over here!
    
    [Vaan shakes his head, Fillo heads behind the party.]
    
    Vaan: I can't believe that judge'd destroy an entire island. What about all
    the aegyl who lived there?
    
    Penelo: I'm sorry, Llyud.
    
    Llyud: Sorry?
    
    Penelo: Sorry we couldn't stop her.
    
    Llyud: Do not apologize. It was destined to happen.
    
    [Vaan runs up and grabs Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Destined? What do you mean, "destined"? How can you stand there and make
    excuses for what happened? Show some emotion for once!
    
    [Filo jumps up and down, Penelo pushes Vaan away from Llyud.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan, what do you think you're doing!?
    
    [Vaan walks further from the two.]
    
    Vaan: Someone had to say something.

    Tomaj's Log
    -Marooned, Day 1
    
    We must struggle against the environment if we are to survive.
    
    Our first order of business is the procurement of foodstuffs.
    
    I am tasked also with repairs of our ship, and the recording of our plight.
    
    I mustn't let the others know that keeping these journals has become something
    of a pastime for me...
    
    [Back to the world map, the Galbana is marooned on an isolated island.]
    
    You can now travel to Tomaj's Camp!
    
    [The camera shows a forest area nearby.]
    
    You can now travel to The Guguerro Greendeep!
    
    [The camera moves to a denser forest, with a waterfall.]
    
    You can now travel to Zwaua Rainwood!

    Virgin rainforest perched among the clouds. Day passes as twilight beneath the
    forests' thick canopy, while tree frogs serenade any who will listen.
    
    The Man in the Jungle
    
    The Galbana sustained heavy damage when the Judge of Wings destroyed the
    skysea, but managed to make landfall on a deserted island. However, the island
    may not e so deserted after all...
    
    Mission 5-1
    The Man in the Jungle
    The Gugerro Greendeep
    
    [Nature noises can be heard as Yarhi live peacefully in this jungle
    environment. From the west, Vaan and party run in and enter.]
    
    Penelo: It doesn't seem like there are any other people on the island. Just
    look how clear the sky and water are!
    
    Llyud: This place has been preserved in the pristine state in which Feolthanos
    created it. We aegyl make no homes here. It is how we maintain the order of
    things in Lemures.
    
    [Filo notices something.]
    
    Filo: But there's someone right over there! And he looks hurt!
    
    [The rest of the party turn and see a man who is on the ground further ahead.
    Ahead of him are angry Yarhi, who see the man as meat.]
    
    Kytes: Those Yarhi are gonna get him! What do we do, Vaan?
    
    [Penelo runs up.]
    
    Penelo: We have to help him!
    
    [All agree.]
    
    Objective:
    Save the wounded man!
    The man and at least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party heads over to the wounded man, and a scene begins.]
    
    [The wounded man gets up.]

    [Kytes notices more Yarhi appear from behind.]
    
    Kytes: We gotta get him someplace safe!
    
    Penelo: Right...
    
    [The party turn to an area to the north, full of mushrooms.]
    
    Penelo: How about over there?
    
    [The camera then shows a route to take, then heads back to the party.]
    
    Objective:
    Escort the wounded man to safety!
    The man and at least one ally must survive.
    
    [The party escort the man through the forest, and combat the Yarhi in front
    and appearing behind. The party gets to the area with the mushrooms.]
    
    Wounded Man: Why... (pant) Why have you helped me?
    
    [Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, at the area full of mushrooms, the wounded man collapses
    again, Penelo rushes to his side.]
    
    Kytes: I wonder how he got here.
    
    Penelo: We should get him back to the airship so he can rest. You don't think
    he's dangerous, do you?
    
    Vaan: I don't think he's one of those sky pirates, if that's what you're
    worried about. Let's go.

    diligently tills the soil, preparing for the worst.

    Rare and splendid Yarhi crawl through the dense tropical brush in the hidden
    depths of the wood. They do not readily welcome outsiders.

    New Espers have been added to the Ring!

    {Back at Tomaj's camp.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo, scene starts.]
    
    Penelo: You made quite a scene there, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: Well, I'm through yelling now. Are you happy?
    
    Penelo: I just don't think you should be so hard on Llyud. You, of all people,
    should know what it's like to lose family and friends.
    
    Vaan: Yeah.. Yeah, I know.
    
    Kytes: Penelo? Can I ask you a silly question?
    
    Penelo: What is it, Kytes?
    
    Kytes: Is everything gonna be okay? Nothing's gonna change, right? I hope
    it'll be like this forever.
    
    Penelo: I hope so too. That's why we need to watch out for each other.

    Llyud: The island is deserted. I see no sign of other aegyl- or anyone else,

    Vaan: You don't seem too concerned. Doesn't anything get under your skin?

    for food? Wanna go take a look around and see if we can find anything to eat?
    
    Kytes: Maybe we should just stay in the airship for a bit. Don't wanna wear
    ourselves out.
    
    Vaan: Kytes has a point, Filo.
    
    Filo: Having time to myself just makes me think of that lizard. It's really
    annoying.
    
    Vaan: No one's gonna make you stay here if you don't want to. We've always got
    room for you two.

    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Everybody's lending a hand with the repairs. That won't leave Cu Sith
    much time to craft anything, but I'm sure you'll manage. Oh, and if you need
    to lay in some supplies, I'm still open for business.
    
    [Shop options, choose to talk.]
    
    Tomaj: The sky pirates have been pitching in with the repairs. They get a roof
    over their heads, and we get free labor. Everybody wins.
    
    Vaan: And why aren't you helping out with the repairs?

    -Marooned, Day 3
    
    [Camera shows the party gathered around the man, who is sitting down, resting.]
    
    The man Vaan and the others brought back to camp hasn't spoken a word since he
    came to.
    
    I can't decide if he's ignoring us, or simply playing things close to his vest.
    
    Either way, I don't care for him.
    
    I wonder if anyone else feels the same?
    
    Vaan: All we want to know is who you are, and how you got here.
    
    Penelo: You shouldn't try to run. You're hurt. Don't worry, you can trust us.
    
    Wounded Man: ...
    
    [Vaan and Penelo seem distressed.]
    
    Filo: I don't like it. He talks even less than those aegyl!
    
    Penelo: That's not a very nice thing to say, Filo.
    
    [Llyud is confused.]
    
    Llyud: ...
    
    Vaan: Usually, when someone saves your life, you at least thank them.
    
    Wounded Man: ...
    
    [Penelo realises something.]
    
    Penelo: I've got an idea!
    
    [She walks over to the wounded man, everyone confused. She grabs the wounded
    man and pushes Vaan out of the way. She starts moving a little peculiar,
    before she starts to dance, with all sorts of symbols coming out of her; Filo
    and Kytes jumping.]
    
    Penelo: Still nothing?
    
    Wounded Man: ... Thank you.
    
    [Everyone is surprised, Penelo starts laughing.]
    
    Penelo: That's more like it! My name's Penelo. What's yours?
    
    Wounded Man: My name... My name is Velis.
    
    [Penelo walks closer towards Velis.]
    
    Penelo: Well, it's very nice to meet you, Velis.
    
    [She kisses him, Vaan gets up and starts running off.]
    
    Penelo: Where you going, Vaan?
    
    Vaan: We gotta eat, right?
    
    [He runs off the screen, Filo walking forward slightly and with Kytes
    following him, jumping.]
    
    Penelo: Huh?
    
    Llyud: What's troubling him?
    
    Filo: Penelo doesn't usually dance for just anyone.
    
    [Llyud looks to the sky, wondering. End scene.]
    
    [Back to the world map, where a waterfall location has been found.]
    
    You can now travel to Gugoza Falls!
    
    Gugoza Falls
    
    Majestic waterfall set at the heart of the Greendeep. The water's misty spray
    refreshes and revitalizes, but the direct force of the cascade can be crushing.
    
    A Gift for Penelo
    
    The man the party rescued from the Yarhi remains silent, winning no friends
    save Penelo. Vaan, having none of it, strikes out to find food.
    
    Mission 5-2
    A Gift for Penelo
    Gugoza Falls
    
    [The camera from a very high view shows a huge waterfall and a landscape area,
    inhabited by native Yarhi. Vaan and Kytes walk into the scene.]
    
    Kytes: You gotta admit, that Penelo really can dance. Sometimes when I'm not
    feeling so good, she dances to cheer me up, too.
    
    [The camera zooms in.]
    
    Vaan: I don't wanna hear about it.
    
    [Vaan starts to think to himself, Kytes walking in front of him to look at
    him.]
    
    Kytes: She only wanted to help. She's nice like that to pretty much everybody.
    I'd imagine that's what having a mother'd be like.
    
    Vaan: Yeah...maybe.
    
    [Vaan looks Kytes, Kytes confused.]
    
    Kytes: It's different with you and her, though, right?
    
    [Vaan seems surprised and distracted, before coming back to reality.]
    
    Vaan: Let's just concentrate on finding something to eat, okay?
    
    [Vaan puts his hand on his head, Kytes laughs.]
    
    Objective:
    Gather foodstuffs!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Vaan runs up towards the view of the waterfall and
    points in it's general direction.]
    
    Vaan: Looks like we're gonna find all sorts of things out here.
    
    [Kytes runs up to Vaan.]
    
    Kytes: Penelo'll be real happy if we bring back a whole bunch!
    
    [The camera shows the view of the area.]
    
    Vaan: Let's see who can find the most!
    
    Kytes: Yeah!
    
    [Back to the party, Vaan and Kytes swing their weapons, Commence!]
    
    [Vaan and Kytes make their way through this beautiful environment, defeating
    the native Yarhi. They find their first tree of foodstuffs, of which Vaan
    obtains the food. After obtaining the food, monsters appear, but he seems
    impressed with himself.]
    
    Vaan: Pillaging and plundering... All in a day's work for Vaan the Bold!
    
    [The two man party continue upwards, and Vaan digs up some materials.]
    
    Vaan: That makes ten for Vaan the Clever!
    
    [The party continues upward, in which Vaan picks out more treasure.]
    
    Vaan: Vaan the Incomparable with another record-breaking haul of loot!
    
    [The party continues and picks out the final foodstuff near the waterfall.]
    
    Vaan: Well, that's that. How'd we do, Kytes?
    
    [Kytes is laughing.]
    
    Kytes: I think we made quite a haul! Penelo's bound to be impressed!
    
    [Kytes jumps, while camera focuses back on Vaan.]
    
    Vaan: Good job! We'll return to a hero's welcome!
    
    [Mission Complete!]

    {Before starting Mission 5-2, back at Tomaj's camp (Note, Penelo and Velis are
    not there).]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: I wouldn't have been surprised to find aegyl or even more sky pirates
    here, but Velis is neither. What's he doing here?
    
    Llyud: I do not know. He is like no other I have met in Lemures.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: How could a hume with no airship come to be stranded here?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: Penelo's inside the airship taking care of that man we found. His body
    was really cold- like he was a...uh...a bangaa!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: C'mon, Vaan, hurry up!

    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Just when you think things can't get any worse... I'll help you get
    through this, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: What are you talking about?
    
    Tomaj: Are you blind? Don't you think Penelo's been acting a little strange
    lately?
    
    Vaan: Oh? I hadn't noticed.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: If you need a shoulder to cry on, I'll be here for ya.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {During the mission.}
    
    [Gather the first foodstuff with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Another treasure for Kytes the Swift!
    
    [Dig up the material north of the foodstuffs with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Kytes the Daring finds his tenth treasure!
    
    [Open the treasure chest to the north with Kytes, Kytes starts laughing.]
    
    Kytes: Kytes the Quick adds another piece to his treasure hoard!

    Mission 5-3
    Object of Desire
    Tomaj's Camp
    
    [It is now night time, and camera shows Vaan and Kytes coming back to the
    camp, with Tomaj watching something from the side. Vaan and Kytes run up to
    Tomaj.]
    
    Vaan: What's up, Tomaj?
    
    Tomaj: Shh! Look!
    
    [Camera shows a behind view of Tomaj watch Penelo and Velis, who are sitting
    very close at the fire.]
    
    Tomaj: Those two have certainly hit it off. I'll see if I can sneak up- hear
    what they're talking about.
    
    [Vaan doesn't appear to hear him and walks up to Penelo and Velis, with Kytes
    following.]
    
    Tomaj: Vaan, wait!
    
    Vaan: Penelo!
    
    [Penelo hears him, gets up and turns around, Velis also.]
    
    Penelo: Uh, hi, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: You get anything else out of him?
    
    Penelo: Well, he says he came here looking for someone.
    
    [Vaan is confused.]
    
    Vaan: Looking for who?
    
    Velis: ...
    
    Penelo: Can I tell him?
    
    Velis: Very well.
    
    [Penelo turns to Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: He's looking for the woman he loves. A viera named Mydia.
    
    Vaan: Hmm...
    
    [Velis walks closer to the fire.]
    
    Velis: We were separated during the war.
    
    Vaan: During the war?
    
    Velis: I was at Nalbina.
    
    Vaan: Nalbina!?
    
    [The camera fades, and comes back on a sky high view.]
    
    Penelo: When Nalbina fell, Dalmasca fell with it.
    
    [Camera zoomed back on the party.]
    
    Vaan: So you're from Nalbina... How'd you end up here?
    
    Velis: That...is a long story.
    
    [The camera shakes.]
    
    Filo: Aiiieeee!!!
    
    [Everyone hears her and turns, as Filo heads towards everyone on her
    skybandit.]
    
    Filo: Yarhi! Lots of 'em!
    
    [Vaan gets his weapon out.]
    
    Penelo: Do you think they're coming for Velis?
    
    [Kytes gets out his staff.]
    
    Kytes: If they are, it's up to us to keep him safe!
    
    Filo: Is that okay, Vaan?
    
    Vaan: Of course it is, don't be silly!
    
    [Filo jumps back and starts laughing.]
    
    Objective:
    Protect Velis!
    Velis and at least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, everyone is around the fire, surrounding Velis.]
    
    Penelo: Velis is still too wounded to move. We have to hold our ground here!
    
    Kytes: Leave it to us!
    Filo: No problem!
    
    Vaan: You got it!
    
    [Commence!]
    
    [The party surround Velis and protect him. Wave after Yarhi after Yarhi attack
    the camp, until the party fends them all off.]
    
    Filo: (pant pant) There's just so many of 'em.
    
    [Camera moves south to show a group of Malboro's and a greater looking
    Malboro, which taunts the party.]
    
    Vaan: There! That one! If we can bring it down, the rest should go with it!
    
    [The party get ready, as the Malboros charge head on towards the party. The
    party fend them off and defeat the Greater Malboro. As the Greater Malboro
    dies, the others disappear as well. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, back at the fire, Penelo runs over to Velis and checks on
    him.]
    
    Penelo: Velis, you all right?
    
    Velis: I'm fine. You're okay, Penelo?
    
    Penelo: Not a scratch.
    
    [The two continue discussing as Vaan backs away and walks off.]
    
    Vaan: Hmph.
    
    [Filo jumps.]
    
    Filo: I think Vaan's jealous!
    
    Kytes: Maybe he's gonna need to start looking for a new partner.
    
    [Filo agrees, both Kytes and Filo laugh. Llyud just looks off to the sky. End
    scene.]

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Tomaj's Log
    -Marooned, Day 7
    
    Turmoil in the camp.
    
    Events have taken an unexpected turn.
    
    Penelo and Velis seem to be getting closer with each passing day.
    
    The two seem perfect for each other- and I do have an eye for these things.
    
    Poor Vaan...
    
    [Back to the world map. Head back to the camp.]
    
    The Dance
    
    Vaan fumes as Velis and Penelo spend more and more time alone together. Then,
    one night Velis asks Penelo to join him outside the ship.
    
    [It is night time again, and Velis and Penelo are alone outside of Tomaj's
    camp. Velis is watching afar, and Penelo walks up to him.]
    
    Penelo: You said you had something important to tell me. What is it?
    
    Velis: Penelo... I'm glad to have met you.
    
    [Penelo is taken aback.]
    
    Penelo: What's going on?
    
    [Velis turns away from Penelo.]
    
    Velis: You're the only one who'll believe what I must tell you. If I hadn't
    met you, I don't know what would have happened to me.
    
    [Velis turns around.]
    
    Velis: Listen to me. Listen, and believe.
    
    [A strange light emits from Velis. Penelo is distraught. She shakes her head,
    and falls to her knees.]
    
    Mission 5-4
    The Dance
    Tomaj's Camp
    
    [Back around the campfire, everyone is talking to Penelo.]
    
    Vaan: He's what?
    
    [Penelo walks up to Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: It doesn't make any sense to me, either. But he said he's...dead.
    
    Filo: That doesn't make any sense.
    
    Kytes: If he's dead, how can he still be here?
    
    Vaan: This isn't funny, Penelo. This isn't the kind of thing you should joke
    about.
    
    [Penelo insists.]
    
    Penelo: But he showed me! [She turns from Vaan.] And...and I believe him.
    
    [Vaan insists.]
    
    Vaan: How can you believe something like that?
    
    A flash occurs.
    
    I will show you.
    
    [Another light comes, and the party falls to the floor, all of them affected
    by a purple light and a flashing light, emitting from all of them. They all
    fall to their knees, till more flashes occur. End scene.]
    
    [Scene comes back to show a flashback, back at the Fane of Yaxim Qul, inside
    the Dais of the Auracite. The Judge of Wings, with her dark aura, stood in
    front of the giant auracite crystal, on the symbol on the floor. She gestures
    upward.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Feolthanos, grant me your power.
    
    [She holds up her Cache, followed by a red flash, as dark energy pours into
    the summoning gate, and Velis appears.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Ahhhh.
    
    [The Judge of Wings walks up to Velis, and stays near him.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Velis. My dear Velis.
    
    [Velis is pushed away, as he falls to the ground. The Judge of Wings steps
    back.]
    
    Judge of Wings: What!? [She continues to step back.]
    
    Judge of Wings: No, this is wrong. You are not Velis!
    
    [More energy seethes out of the Judge of Wings, as Velis has moved, hovering
    near the great crystal.]
    
    Why?
    Why...!?
    
    [Another flash, and Velis turns into a bright light, and flies away. The scene
    goes white.]
    
    [Back to the present time, the place is quaking as everyone is running around
    what's happening. They hear the clanking of armour, as the Judge of Wings
    walks before them. Vaan and party face her.]
    
    Vaan: The Judge of Wings! What's she doing here?
    
    Judge of Wings: You wished to find me, did you not?
    
    [Penelo walks up.]
    
    Penelo: You can't be...Mydia?
    
    Vaan: You meant to tell me that Velis was looking for her?
    
    Judge of Wings: I know not. I set aside my name long ago.
    
    [Vaan walks up to her.]
    
    Vaan: What were you doing in that cave?
    
    Judge of Wings: Setting free a soul.
    
    [Vaan gets his weapon out.]
    
    Vaan: I've heard enough!
    
    [Vaan attacks her, but she easily parries him back, as he's thrown instantly
    back towards the campfire, hitting the ground. She then walks up to the rest
    of the party.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Your doubts will soon be ended.
    
    [Every step she takes makes the earth shake, as the nears closer to the party.
    Heading towards Penelo, she starts stepping back, and Mydia takes a swing.
    From another area of the camp...]
    
    Velis: Mydia, stop this!
    
    [Vaan is up, and everyone steps back. Vaan gestures to Filo and Kytes to run,
    and they do so. Velis runs up to the Judge of Wings, with her walking towards
    Velis.]
    
    Judge of Wings: You have come to balance the scales, have you?
    
    [Using her Cache, a flash of red light appears, and she traps Velis and hangs
    him in the air, light emitting out of him. He soon changes into a dark, giant
    Esper that's riding a horse, as it prepares to attack.]
    
    Penelo: Velis! Velis, what's happening?
    
    Judge of Wings: The Yarhi are rent from the World of Illusion. [The giant
    Esper swings it's sword, the Judge of Wings laughing.] What end could be more
    fitting for one who is but an illusion?
    
    [The Judge of Wings walks behind the Esper, while Penelo confronts it.]
    
    Penelo: It'll be all right, Velis! We can still save you!
    
    [Vaan runs up to Penelo and puts his hands on her shoulder.]
    
    Vaan: Penelo, get back!
    
    [Vaan shakes his head.]
    
    Vaan: This creature- Velis is gone, Penelo.
    
    [Penelo steps back, as the Esper cries and swings its weapon.]
    
    Penelo: No!
    
    [Penelo falls to her knees, the camera goes sky high, and shakes.]
    
    Penelo: Nooo!!!
    
    Objective:
    Stop Velis!
    Penelo must survive.
    
    [The camera moves right into the scene, then battle preparations.]
    
    [After battle preparations, Vaan turns to Penelo.]
    
    Vaan: Penelo, you have to fight!
    
    [She gets up.]
    
    Penelo: I can't... I won't!
    
    Vaan: If Velis is really dead, then he doesn't belong here.
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Why? Why did this have to happen? [She falls to her knees.] I'm so
    tired of watching everyone around me be torn away... I don't want to be
    strong. I just want to be left alone...
    
    [More and more Espers are summoned around the camp, as the creature Velis
    swings his sword, the Judge of Wings beside him, The camera moves back to the
    party.]
    
    Vaan: Then it's up to us!
    
    [Commence!]
    
    [The battle ravages as the party attacks the creature Velis and the Judge of
    Wings head on, without Penelo. During their battle, the Judge of Wings begins
    to talk.]
    
    Judge of Wings: This summoned creature that was Velis is so very like the
    aegyl. Imperfect...incomplete.
    
    Llyud: What are you saying?
    
    Judge of Wings: May destruction rain upon this land. The power of the
    auraliths will soon be mine. And Ivalice awaits...
    
    [The Judge of Wings teleports out, and the battle continues. As the party
    starts to take down Velis, the creature soon submits, and a scene begins.]
    
    [Velis is backing away from the party as they move forward. Just as Vaan is
    going to finish him off, Penelo runs up and stops Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: No, don't!
    
    [She shakes her head.]
    
    Penelo: Please, Vaan! That's Velis! I know it is!
    
    [Vaan puts his weapon away, and turns to Penelo.]
    
    Vaan: Penelo...
    
    [Vaan turns back to Velis.]
    
    Vaan: We can't leave him like this.
    
    [Llyud walks up towards Velis.]
    
    Llyud: Let me.
    
    [He flies up and strikes down Velis, the creature falling to the ground.]
    
    Penelo: !?
    
    [Llyud turns around, a strange light emits from Velis, as Penelo rushes over
    to him.]
    
    Penelo: Velis!
    
    [Velis disappears in the strange light.]
    
    Penelo: I'm sorry... I'm sorry!
    
    [She gets up off her knees, she and Vaan turn to Llyud.]
    
    Penelo: Why...?
    
    [Llyud turns his back and walks away briefly.]
    
    Llyud: The Judge of Wings is right. We aegyl are not complete. We lack the
    heart that makes you humes whole.
    
    [Penelo shakes her head.]
    
    Penelo: But, I don't-
    
    [Llyud turns back around.]
    
    Llyud: I cannot even understand why you cry.
    
    [He shakes his head, as the camera view goes sky high.]
    
    Llyud: Is it not better that creatures such as we should perish?
    
    Penelo: Llyud, no...
    
    [Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the results screen.]
    
    Tomaj's Log
    -Marooned, Final Day
    
    While the others had their fun under the moon and stars, yours truly was up
    all night fixing the airship.
    
    Thanks to me, we can say good-bye to this island forever.
    
    Sometimes I wonder if they appreciate all I go through.
    
    [Back at the campsite, it is now daytime, and the camera is fixed far away
    from the camp. Penelo is to her knees.]
    
    Llyud: Penelo, I would ask a favor of you.
    
    [The camera fades out, then back in again, closer on Llyud and Penelo.]
    
    Llyud: I want you to dance for me.
    
    [She starts to get up, still upset.]
    
    Penelo: What?
    
    [She turns around, as Vaan turns to Llyud. Llyud looks up at the sky.]
    
    Llyud: When you danced for Velis, you touched something deep in his heart.
    
    [He turns away.]
    
    Llyud: I thought, perhaps, if you danced for me, I might-
    
    [Vaan and Penelo look at each other, and Vaan accepts. She walks over to an
    area near Vaan.]
    
    [Movie. The sun is bright, as a sad Penelo starts dancing in the magical land
    of Lemures. Light glowing everywhere, she dances and twirls around. A close up
    of her face shows tears coming out of her eyes, slowly making their way
    through the air.]
    
    [Back to normal, the others watched on, with Llyud in front. Penelo, now to
    her knees, Llyud looking down.]
    
    Llyud: (chuckle)
    
    [He turns to the side.]
    
    Llyud: I'm sorry. This is no time for laughter.
    
    [Vaan walks over to Llyud, shaking his head.]
    
    Vaan: It's okay, Llyud.
    
    [Vaan walks away from him, and faces the party.]
    
    Vaan: I been thinkin'.
    
    [Penelo gets up, everyone turns to Vaan.]
    
    Vaan: What if...what if just being here in Lemures is what makes you not care,
    not feel?
    
    [Llyud is confused.]
    
    Llyud: What?
    
    [The camera shows more of the camp.]
    
    Vaan: Think about it. It's not just the aegyl, but even the sky pirates that
    have come here, too. If it weren't for Rikken, who knows what would've
    happened to them by now.
    
    Penelo: But what could make something like that happen?
    
    Vaan: I don't know. I can't explain it. But that doesn't mean it's impossible.
    
    [Vaan turns away from the party, shaking his head.]
    
    Vaan: Maybe we'll find something important on this journey. Or maybe we'll
    lose it forever.
    
    [Camera turns to Filo and Kytes, Filo jumps.]
    
    Kytes: I don't like the sound of that!
    Filo: What!?
    
    Vaan: That's why we have to watch out for each other. If one of us forgets
    what's really important, it's up to the rest to remind him!
    
    [Filo, Kytes and Penelo agree.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan's right. Even if it means reminding us something we might rather
    forget.
    
    [Camera changes angle of the discussion.]
    
    Vaan: And we'll do the same for Llyud. If that's what it comes to, we won't
    let you forget what really matters! [Vaan gives thumbs up.] If we stick
    together, we'll be all right.
    
    Llyud: Vaan. I believe this is the right time to say...
    
    ...thank you.
    
    [Penelo laughs, Vaan rubs his head.]
    
    Tomaj: Good news, everyone! The airship's up and running again!
    
    [Everyone seems to notice, as the camera moves towards Tomaj and the airship,
    which is now making noise.]
    
    Tomaj: But better yet, I think I've sighted the Strahl!
    
    [Tomaj runs inside, as the rest of the party follows.]
    
    Chapter 5 Complete!
    
    [Kytes comes back to the campfire and puts it out with his ice spells, then
    continues running off, end scene.]

    You can now travel to Heaven's Vigil!
    
    Heaven's Vigil
    
    The aegyl stage their watch of the Ymir Qul from this quiet village. Legend
    holds that the sacred mountain lies at the foot of the heavens, the stairway
    fallen aegyl must ascend to reach the afterlife.
    
    [The camera shows an area separated from the skysea.]
    
    You can now travel to Oghu, the Veiled Isle!
    
    [Back in control of the ship, fly to the north continent, land, then approach
    Heaven's Vigil.]
    
    Chapter 6
    Stealing Eternity
    Anda, Heaven's Pillar
    
    [The camera shows a view of the Strahl, and Fran walking away from it.]
    
    Vaan: Fran!
    
    [The party enters the scene, with Vaan and Penelo running run and close to
    her.]
    
    Penelo: You're alive!
    
    Fran: I am. This surprises you?
    
    [Penelo realises what she's said.]
    
    Penelo: No. Sorry. It's just- I'm so glad to see you!
    
    [Vaan heads even closer to Fran.]
    
    Vaan: Where's Balthier? I've got a thousand things I wanna ask him.
    
    Fran: ...
    
    [Fran starts to walk away.]
    
    Vaan: What exactly happened with him and that judge?
    
    Fran: You would rather hear this from Balthier, would you not?
    
    Vaan: Well, yeah, but-
    
    [Fran turns, and the camera changes the show houses near the cliff face.]
    
    Fran: Then go. You will find him in the mountains ahead.
    
    Penelo: What about you, Fran? Why aren't you with him?
    
    Fran: ...
    
    [Camera changes back to the party. Fran, looking off a cliff.]
    
    Fran: The Mist in this place... it clings to that which we hold dear. Strips
    it away.
    
    [Everyone reacts.]
    
    Vaan: Huh?
    
    [Vaan looks like to ask more, but Penelo gestures not to.]
    
    Vaan: Guess we'll just have to go see for ourselves. Thanks, Fran.
    
    [Fran watches the sky as everyone else starts to leave. She then falls to the
    ground. End scene.]
    
    [Scene starts again with Vaan and everyone else going to leave, as a female
    sky pirate passes them.]
    
    Fleeing Sky Pirate: You- you're headed into the mountains? It's too dangerous!
    Turn back!
    
    Vaan: What's so dangerous about it?
    
    Fleeing Sky Pirate: A viera told me to flee this place. I didn't wait around
    to ask why.
    
    [The sky pirate starts to walk away.]
    
    Vaan: That must've been Fran. What's going on?
    
    [The camera moves to show Fran no longer on the cliff's edge.]
    
    Vaan: No, don't tell me. We''ll have to go see for ourselves.
    
    [All agree and start to leave, end scene.]
    
    [Back at the world map, the camera shows a trail heading into the mountain
    ahead.]
    
    You can now travel to The Ymir Qul Range!
    
    The Ymir Qul Range
    
    Holy peaks higher than aegyl wings can soar. Jagged skystone claws at the sky
    along its twisting paths, while sheer cliffs stand their silent watch,
    unforgiving of those who would trespass.
    
    A Recurring Nuisance
    
    Balthier has lived to fight another day! On Fran's recommendation, Vaan and
    the others follow his trail into the mountains to learn the truth of what's
    happened, but old enemies complicate their plans.
    
    Mission 6-1
    A Recurring Nuisance
    The Ymir Qul Range
    
    [Camera shows a mountainous area full of Yarhi, as the party enters from the
    south.]
    
    Bwagi: Hold it right there!
    
    [The party notice to the north of the area, Bwagi coming out of hiding. He
    swings his weapon.]
    
    Bwagi: This is one pass ye'll no be passin', boy!
    
    [Further down, Rinok runs and swings her weapon.]
    
    Rinok: Best run along before you find yourselves hurt for true!
    
    [Further south again, Gijuk swings his weapon.]
    
    Gijuk: We've like made nice with Ba'Gamnan. One big, happy family again!
    
    [Back to Bwagi, and all three taunt as the camera zooms out.]
    
    Bwagi: That we are! Us all together on one side, and ye on the other!
    
    [Back to the party.]
    
    Vaan: You just don't learn, do you? Fine, have it your way!
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemy leaders!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations.]
    
    Vaan: So, are you working for Ba'Gamnan or not? I can't keep it straight.
    
    [Back to Bwagi, who swings his weapon.]
    
    Bwagi: Ha! 'Twas no more than a like wee fallin' out is all. When the judge
    sent the island down, Ba'Gamnan took the opportunity to "reeducate" us.
    
    [Bwagi summons Yarhi to him, down to Gijuk.]
    
    Gijuk: Still smarts, that lesson.
    
    [He summons Yarhi to himself, up to Rinok, who swings her weapon.]
    
    Rinok: Aye, that it does. But we had only so much beatin' as we deserved.
    
    [She summons Yarhi to her, back to Bwagi, who's showing off.]
    
    Bwagi: Deliverin' that fine head o' years to Ba'Gamnan should go far in easin'
    his wrath.
    
    [Back to the party.]
    
    Vaan: His wrath is really starting to become a nuisance.
    
    [Commence!]
    
    [The party fight their way up the narrow area, quickly meeting Gijuk, then
    Rinok, and then finally, felling Bwagi. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are to the north of the area, where they have
    tied up Bwagi, Rinok and Gijuk. Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: So they wanted to capture Fran to use her as bait to lure out Balthier.
    
    Vaan: Good thing we came along when we did.
    
    [Filo jumps up and down.]
    
    Filo: I think Fran could've handled these three, no problem.
    
    Kytes: For all we know, that's what he wanted to happen.
    
    [Bwagi gets angry, still tied up.]
    
    Bwagi: So that's what he was up to! Grrah!
    
    Rinok: I'd believe it. He's always ben one to hold a grudge.
    
    Gijuk: Mayhap he fancies himself a teacher, what with all these lessons he's
    givin' us.
    
    Bwagi: I'll let you in on a little secret, boy. We're not the only ones
    Ba'Gamnan has workin' for him, if ye catch me meaning.
    
    [Vaan and Penelo are surprised.]
    
    Vaan: What!?
    
    Penelo: We have to warn Fran!
    
    [The party agrees and they all head back the way they came, the camera zooming
    out, end scene.]

    - 6-1 Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {On the world map, when approaching the new island discovered from the
    destroyed skysea.}
    
    Oghu, the Veiled Isle
    
    Mysterious island revealed by the skysea's destruction. The aegyl dare not
    approach for fear they should disturb the Lord of the Seas said to dwell
    thereon.
    
    {Before heading to Heaven's Vigil, back at the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo, scene starts.]
    
    Penelo: Remember those cooking ingredients I asked Tomaj to find? Well, he
    says he's found them.
    
    Vaan: Ingredients? Oh, those ingredients!
    
    Penelo: I knew you wouldn't forget. Tomaj put the details up on the notice
    board.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: You okay, Vaan? You look a little tired. Maybe you should get some
    rest.
    
    Vaan: What are you talking about? I feel fine.
    
    Penelo: That's good... We're all counting on you, so I just want to make sure
    you take care of yourself.
    
    Vaan: Forget about me. How are you? You sure you're up for this?
    
    Penelo: I'll be okay. Thanks. It's up to us to look after everyone. I don't
    want to let them down.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo a third time.]
    
    Penelo: Everyone's worried about what's going to happen. We have to be strong.
    For them.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Velis, Mydia...seems like there's trouble everywhere we look.
    
    Vaan: It's not all that bad, is it?
    
    Kytes: All this talk about revenge and taking over Ivalice isn't helping,
    that's for sure. You sure having me along isn't more trouble than it's worth?
    
    Vaan: Are you kidding, Kytes? You're doing great!
    
    Kytes: Aww, you're just saying that.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: I've been dreaming a lot about Rabanastre the last couple of days.
    Maybe I want to go back home.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo, scene starts, Kytes nearby.]
    
    Filo: Velis was looking for the woman he loved...how sweet! I hope someone
    feels that way about me someday.
    
    Vaan: Anybody in mind?
    
    [Filo jumps.]
    
    Filo: I-I-I dunno!
    
    Kytes: I do! A certain winged aegyl named-
    
    [Filo gets mad.]
    
    Filo: No! No! NO! You promised not to tell, Kytes!
    
    Vaan: It's nothing to be embarrassed about. Hey, maybe I can even help!
    
    [Filo shakes her head.]
    
    Filo: I won't be needing any help, thank you. Besides...I don't think you'd be
    much help anyway.
    
    Vaan: What's that supposed to mean?
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: Vaan, promise not to say anything to Llyud. I don't want him to get the
    wrong idea. Okay?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj (without choosing an option). Scene starts.]
    
    Tomaj: Uncanny timing, Vaan. I've just learned a piece of news that should see
    us turn a tidy profit.
    
    Vaan: Oh yeah?
    
    Tomaj: It's all there on the notice board, but it's not going to read itself!
    Get to it!
    
    [Now to options, choose to talk.]
    
    Tomaj: After all I've done to make the sky saloon livable, this is the thanks
    I get!
    
    Vaan: Easy there, Tomaj. Why don't you tell me what's wrong?
    
    Tomaj: Everyone thinks I'm only doing this for the money. Can you believe it?
    Me?
    
    Vaan: Well...you are, aren't you?
    
    [Tomaj crosses his arms.]
    
    Tomaj: So you're on their side, is that it? (sigh) Cu Sith is the only friend
    I have left around here...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    [Tomaj crosses his arms.]
    
    Tomaj: Moneygrubbing? I'll show you moneygrubbing!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud (without choosing an option.). Scene starts.]
    
    Vaan: This place is really shaping up. It's starting to look like a proper
    shop.
    
    Llyud: Tomaj decided it was time to render a few improvements. Our inventories
    are so good, in fact, that we're lowering their cost.
    
    Vaan: I'd say you're a born tradesman, Llyud.
    
    Llyud: You flatter me.
    
    [Options, choose to talk.]
    
    Vaan: Hey, Llyud. I was wondering. What do you think about Filo?
    
    Llyud: I do not understand your question.
    
    Vaan: Uh, well, you know. What do you think about Filo?
    
    Llyud: ... She is bright. Is this an acceptable answer.
    
    Vaan: Forget I asked.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: You talk to me often. Why is this?
    
    Vaan: Sorry. Guess it's just a bad habit. But c'mon, you must feel like
    talking sometimes, right?
    
    Llyud: No. Perhaps it is our anima from which this desire springs.
    
    Vaan: You're thinking about it too much. I talk to people when I feel like it.
    Even if they don't. (chuckle)
    
    Llyud: How...reassuring.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud a third time.]
    
    Llyud: If you've made yourself ready, you should be going.
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith (without choosing an option), scene starts. (Note, scene
    only appears after making a number of items with Cu Sith.)]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Yes. Yes, I think I'm finally ready. I'll have to
    ask Master Tomaj to make a past on the notice board.
    
    Vaan: What are you mumbling about?
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: N-N-Nothing! Nothing at all! Your unexpected visit
    is most appreciated!
    
    [Options, choose to talk.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: With the repairs done, I can get back to my real
    work. All thanks to Master Tomaj, oh yes. His skills know no bounds!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Namingway.]
    
    Namingway: A streetear must go by many names- I'm helping Tomaj think up one
    or two even now. My lips are sealed, of course, but perchance I could get you
    to part with a new ship name?
    
    [Do what you wish. End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the aegyl to the northwest.]
    
    Troubled Aegyl: When the airship crashed, I thought we were going to lose our
    home again. But the airship flies once more, and we with it.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the female aegyl to the northeast.]
    
    Aegyl Survivor: Heaven's Pillar is a sanctum given to the aegyl by the
    Eternal. The sky pirates pay this no heed. They pillage as they wish.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk to the male aegyl next to her.]
    
    Aegyl Deserter: A wounded aegyl can no more fly than a wounded airship.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Speak with the moogle sky pirate.]
    
    Land-bound Sky Pirate: When we crashed on that island, I thought we were
    finished... But it's a good thing you had us with you, kupo. The airship would
    never have been fixed without us!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Bangaa sky pirate next to him.]
    
    Reckless Sky Pirate: Good to be airborne again! This is the second time an
    airship I was on went down. If I was the superstitious type, I'd say my luck
    had turned sour.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Head to the airship bridge.}
    
    [A scene starts between the party and Tomaj, as they stand around the middle
    of the ship, discussing.]
    
    Kytes: The Judge of Wings and Velis used to be in love?
    
    Vaan: Uh-huh.
    
    Filo: What made her come to Lemures?
    
    [Penelo has an idea.]
    
    Penelo: She probably heard of the connection between the Cache and the
    eternal. She must've been trying to find a way to bring Velis back.
    
    [Kytes is confused.]
    
    Kytes: So Mydia thought that if there was a way to make people's lives last
    forever...
    ... there must be a way to bring someone back to life.
    
    Llyud: But her hopes came to nothing.
    
    Vaan: And now she wants revenge.
    
    Kytes: Is that why Mydia's destroying the auraliths? Is she planning on taking
    over Ivalice?
    
    [Filo gets angry.]
    
    Filo: Not if we have anything to say about it!
    
    Vaan: That's right. We have to stop her.
    
    [Everyone agrees with their own gesture.]
    
    Penelo: Let's go see what Balthier has to say about all this. Maybe together
    we can figure out what to do.
    
    Vaan: That's a good idea. If there's anyone who'll know what to do, it's
    Balthier.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: I'm all right, Vaan. Let's go see Balthier.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: If my anima were returned to me, perhaps then I could find a voice for
    my thoughts.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: Mydia just wanted to be together with the person she loved. So how'd
    that go so wrong?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: I wonder what it's like to lose your anima... Not ever feeling
    anything... Doesn't sound like fun to me.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Do you wanna know what I think?
    
    Okay, okay.
    Not if I can avoid it.
    
    [Choose the second one.]
    
    Tomaj: Is that how it's going to be?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again, choose the first option.]
    
    Tomaj: I think the airship crashed here for a reason. We're not even sure what
    we fixed to get it flying again. It's like it didn't want to fly.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Head to the Ring of Pacts, and you'll get another message saying more Espers
    have been added, and Odin will appear on the ring.}
    
    {Head over to the message board. (Note, all Missions that can be available at
    this time, will be shown.)}
    
    A Savory Task
    
    I've tracked down an ingredient Penelo's been pining after to Isshu on the
    skysea. My mouth waters just writing about it. Bring back enough for everyone!
    
    Rally to the Cause
    
    The shrine that was destroyed with the skysea had a twin. With one shrine
    already lost, the aegyl want to defend the remaining shrine at all costs, but
    they can't do it alone!
    
    Stroke of Luck
    
    I'm told you're learning your way around the forge, so perhaps this lead on a
    rare material will interest you. Seek it out in the Underfane amid the ruins
    of the skysea.
    
    Otherworldly Beauty
    
    Sometimes beauty and the beast are one and the same. A scion of unsurpassed
    beauty waits at the Dais of the Auracite in the Underfane on the broken
    skysea. The sight alone should be worth the journey!
    
    Serpent's Rage
    
    I've charted a new island left in the wake of the skysea's destruction. The
    island may be small, but there' big trouble brewing. The lord of the skysea
    rages, and there's no one to hold him at bay.
    
    That Left Behind
    
    I know we've only just left, but Penelo's forgotten something on the deserted
    isle. I don't know about you, but I'm a bit curious about what it might be.
    
    Materialistic
    
    A material I've been after for the longest time has finally turned up in
    Gugerro Greendeep. I won't ask how you missed it the last time you were there.
    Just promise not to miss it this time!
    
    Rumble in the Jungle
    
    The deserted isle we were marooned on has been racked by tremors. I've
    pinpointed the source to the Zwaua Rainwood. We owe it to the island to check
    it out.
    
    {After finishing A Savory Task, back at the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo, scene starts.]
    
    Penelo: It's hopeless...
    
    Vaan: C'mon, it wasn't that bad.
    
    Kytes: Vaan managed to finish his, at least.
    
    Penelo: Who am I kidding. I'm just not cut out to be a cook.
    
    Vaan: Nah, you just need some more practice. Tell ya what. You keep trying to
    make new dishes, and Kytes and I will let you know how they are.
    
    [Kytes jumps.]
    
    Kytes: Hey, don't bring me into this!
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Thanks for the vote of confidence.
    
    [Vaan gives Penelo a thumbs up.]
    
    Kytes: Sorry. Or at least I will be...
    Vaan: Just leave Kytes to me!
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again, another scene starts.]
    
    Penelo: Tomaj was going on and on about the latest treasure he tracked down.
    
    Vaan: You don't sound too excited about it. What's wrong?
    
    Penelo: It's nothing, really. I've just had a bad streak of luck in the
    kitchen lately. These days I could use a few good ingredients more than
    treasure.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, I guess.
    
    Penelo: But don't worry, I'm fine. Maybe the bill Tomaj posted on the notice
    board will have something interesting.
    
    {Back at the message board.}
    
    The Sword in the Shell
    
    Who can say "no" to a legendary sword? Well, I've found one at Gugoza Falls.
    The only catch is, it's stuck in the back of a stoneturtle. Still, treasure is
    treasure!
    
    {After finishing Stroke of Luck, go back to see Cu Sith in the sky saloon.}
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: I believe you will find the everburn most useful.
    You should try it at once!
    
    Vaan: Don't mind if I do! I still haven't figured out how you knew where to
    find it, though.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: It's all in the Artificer's Codex, a tome handed
    down since- well, since I don't know when! It contains the accumulated wisdom
    of Cu Sith through the ages.
    
    Vaan: Sounds like a handy thing to have.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Oh, it is! I hope one day to add my own recipes to
    the Codex. This is what inspires me to work so diligently at my trade.

    {After finishing the quest, Materialistic, talk with Tomaj, scene starts.}
    
    Tomaj: Not a bad assemblage of shops, I daresay. Business has been so good, in
    fact, I'm going to lower prices across the board by five percent.
    
    Vaan: Now that is a surprise. I didn't know you had such a deep purse.
    
    Tomaj: Those materials you brought back fetch a good price. I told you this
    sky saloon would be worth the trouble. It affords us unique...opportunities.
    
    Vaan: Selling treasure on the side? I'm impressed.
    
    Tomaj: I'd rather not go into the details. The sky pirates I was dealing with
    are long gone, but my discretion is part of the price they pay.

    Vaan: No complaints here.
    
    Kytes: Actually...it wasn't that bad.
    
    Vaan: I think it's almost safe to stop and taste your cooking now instead of
    just gulping it down.
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Maybe you'd be happier without any food at all?

    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: There is a village called Heaven's Vigil at the foot of the Ymir Qul.

    I heard them tell of any volcanic activity in Ymir Qul.

    [Talk with the Ninja Sky Pirate nearest the exit.]
    
    Wandering Sky Pirate: I had come to the Ymir Qul in search of the auracite I'd
    heard I would find there. No sooner had I arrived, than a sky pirate and his
    viera partner approached me. They told me to flee the mountain, and so I came
    here.

    Lowland Sky Pirate: They're sayin' a volcano in the Ymir Qul is goin' to
    erupt. Leastwise that's what that high falutin' sky pirate and the viera were
    sayin'. It was my partner's idea to come out here in the first place, so I was
    more'n happy to leave!
    
    [End talk.]

    [Talk with the mountain watch aegyl.]
    
    Mountain Watch: I was charged with defending the mountain from the predations
    of the sky pirates. Imagine my surprise when a rather unlikely pair of sky
    pirates approached wanting only to talk. They told me to flee the Ymir Qul and
    seek shelter here.

    confront her from behind, and the sky pirates who were hiding behind the
    Strahl confront her from the front.]

    [She gets up again.]

    Penelo: She's certainly stubborn as ever.
    
    Vaan: Fran, why not come with us?
    
    [Fran turns her head.]
    
    Fran: ...
    
    Vaan: You can't really expect us to leave you here alone. A pretty viera alone
    in the mountains...who knows what could happen.
    
    Fran: And you're to be my chaperon, then?
    
    [Filo and Kytes turn to Vaan and laugh.]
    
    Vaan: What, don'tcha trust me?
    
    [Fran walks to Vaan, Vaan stepping aside for her.]
    
    Fran: Do not worry. I know who can and cannot be trusted.

    everywhere. Vaan, Filo and Kytes run up ahead, with Llyud following behind.

    Fran: Why do you ask?

    Fran: I should want to be with them in a night to which dawn would never come,

    Llyud: The viera - Fran. In some ways she reminds me of an aegyl.
    
    Vaan: I think you may be on to something there. She hardly ever speaks, and
    half the time when she does you wish she hadn't.
    
    Llyud: Yet still we are different. Is it our anima that separates us?
    
    Vaan: Well, Fran's different from just about everyone I've ever met. She has
    an uncanny ability to read people.
    
    Llyud: Perhaps this ability, too, stems from her anima.

    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: Balthier and Fran share a really strong bond. That's how I want us to
    be.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: The Yarhi have grown restless.
    
    Vaan: You were saying that the Yarhi are messengers of the Eternal, right?
    
    Llyud: Yes.
    
    Vaan: So how do you think they feel about what's happening to Lemures?
    
    Llyud: I do not know.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: Do the Yarhi think and feel as we do?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Filo is jumping up and down, making gestures. Talk with her and she stops.]
    
    Filo: All Kytes and Tomaj ever talk about now is Fran. Can't you do something,
    Vaan?
    
    Vaan: Look on the bright side. At least Llyud hasn't taken much notice.
    
    Filo: Yeah, but...but...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [She is no longer jumping, talk with Filo again, and she will start again.]
    
    Filo: Ow! Ow ow! Ow ow ow!
    
    Vaan: What are you doing?
    
    Filo: Stretching my ears. I wanna look more like Fran. What do you think?
    
    Vaan: You're gonna have to pull a lot harder than that.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo a third time.]
    
    Filo: My ears are getting sore. Maybe I should ask Penelo for some dancing
    tips instead...
    
    [End talk, she continues jumping.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: I'm trying to help Tomaj think of a way to get Fran's attention.
    
    Vaan: You shouldn't encourage him.
    
    Kytes: I told him I didn't want to, but he wouldn't take "no" for an answer.
    
    Vaan: Well, you're both wasting your time, if you ask me. I don't even wanna
    know what Balthier would think of all this.
    
    Kytes: Oh, right, Balthier. Hmm...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: Any idea what Fran likes, Vaan? I know I should ask her, but I'm too
    shy.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: We thought up the perfect plan to get Fran's attention. The wheels are
    already in motion. You have to put a lot of thought into wooing a mature woman
    such as her.
    
    Vaan: Mature is right.
    
    Tomaj: If you think I are about how old she is, you've got it all wrong, Vaan!
    
    Vaan: Well, good luck. You're gonna need it.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: What kind of man is Fran attracted to, I wonder.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran.]
    
    Vaan: I heard Kytes and Tomaj have been up to something.
    
    Fran: So they have. I've received a letter, flowers...all manner of things I
    don't know what to make of.
    
    Vaan: Sorry about that. Try not to let it bother you, okay?
    
    Fran: Why would it bother me? It is not the first time such a thing has
    happened.
    
    Vaan: Wait, you don't mean...Balthier?
    
    Fran: Yes, though his methods were somewhat...different.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran again.]
    
    Fran: There is a large cavern among the mountains of the Ymir Qul. There you
    will find Balthier.
    
    [End talk.]

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mission 6-5
    Balthier's Betrayal
    Auralith's Cradle
    
    [Balthier is seen on the destroying device, as Vaan and Penelo run over to
    him.]
    
    Vaan: Balthier! You weren't easy to find.
    
    [Fran walks into the scene, next to them.]
    
    Balthier: Had I wished to be found, I'd not have hidden the entrance, now
    would I?
    
    [Fran walks over towards Balthier, Balthier turns to her.]
    
    Balthier: Fran, I thought I asked you to see to the Strahl?
    
    Fran: I grew tired of waiting.
    
    Balthier: Not the answer I wanted to hear, so I'll pretend I didn't.
    
    [He looks back at fiddles again with the machine.]
    
    Balthier: On the bright side, at least there shouldn't be any further
    disruptions.
    
    [Vaan runs up.]
    
    Vaan: Balthier!
    
    Balthier: Ah, Vaan. See to our uninvited guests for me, would you?
    
    [An electric spark comes from the device, and it starts up, taking Vaan and
    Penelo by surprise.]
    
    Vaan: What are you doing?
    
    [Camera zooms in on the auralith. Balthier crosses his arms.]
    
    Balthier: Isn't it obvious? I'm using this machine to destroy the Stone.
    
    Vaan: Are you crazy?
    
    [Vaan heads to the other side of the device, with his weapon out, Balthier
    rests his gun on his shoulder.]
    
    Balthier: Vaan, please. Why must everything be so difficult with you?
    
    Vaan: What's gotten into you? Is this how the "leading man" is supposed to act?
    
    Balthier: You're right. High time I stepped out of the limelight.
    
    [Balthier opens out his weapon.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Balthier!
    Vaan: Balthier!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan runs up from behind Filo, Kytes and Llyud. They back away,
    Ba'Gamnan dances with his weapon in hand.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Found you at last! Ah, so long I've waited for this!
    
    [He starts to head towards everyone. Camera moves back to Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: This day keeps going from bad to worse.
    
    [Everyone facing Ba'Gamnan. Kytes looks tired, Filo and Penelo angry, Vaan in
    front of them, with his weapon out, as Balthier runs up near him, jumping up
    and down.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: And all your little friends here with you! We'll settle all our
    scores at once.
    
    [Balthier fires his weapon in the air, Filo and Kytes run, everyone else turns
    to Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: Too much talk and too listening.
    
    [Camera changes to show Filo and Kytes hiding behind Vaan, Fran walking over
    to the side of Balthier.]
    
    Vaan: Balthier, don't do it! I don't want to fight you!
    
    [Zooms in on Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: Then don't. Stand back, and shut up.
    
    [Balthier readies his weapon, his hand gesturing. Fran puts out her bow.]
    
    Vaan: ...
    
    Penelo: Vaan?
    
    Vaan: If you won't change your mind, I'll have to change it for you!
    
    [Fran flicks her hair.]
    
    Fran leaves the party.
    
    [Penelo runs over to Vaan.]
    
    Objective:
    Stop Balthier!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [Camera zooms in on Balthier, who loads his weapon, and holds it in the air.
    Battle preparations.]
    
    [After battle preparations, Vaan swings his weapon.]
    
    Vaan: We have to take out Ba'Gamnan an stop Balthier from destroying the
    auralith!
    
    [Commence!]
    
    [An unexpected battle occurs between Vaan, Balthier and Ba'Gamnan, as the
    party rushes up to face Balthier. As the party even begins to move, Espers
    spawn from the right hand side, and just keep coming. After fending those off,
    as the party starts to head towards Balthier and Fran, more Espers spawn from
    no where. Even after the onslaught, the party defeats Balthier.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: You'll make a fine feather for my cap, Balthier!
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Ba'Gamnan!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [Ba'Gamnan starts heading straight for Vaan and company, in an attempt to get
    to Balthier. The party manage to take him down, as well as his mighty Esper,
    Titan. After defeat, he falls to his knees.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Ngrah! Blasted sprats!
    
    [He gets up.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Do take care of Balthier for me, eh?
    
    [He spins his weapon, and disappears.]
    
    Vaan: Balthier!
    
    [Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Vaan attacks Balthier near the auralith.]
    
    Balthier: Let's not do anything hasty, Vaan.
    
    [He swings again, Balthier moves back.]
    
    Vaan: Do you have any idea what you're doing? You're gonna destroy this entire
    world!
    
    [Balthier pulls out his weapon, rests it on his shoulder.]
    
    Balthier: I'd say the situation has gotten a little beyond your ability to
    comprehend.
    
    [Balthier shoots his gun near Vaan.]
    
    Vaan: We have to save the aegyl!
    
    [Vaan swings his weapon and misses. Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Oh, I couldn't agree more.
    
    [Vaan swings his weapon again, but Balthier jumps back and faces the auralith
    with his gun out.]
    
    Balthier: That's why the Stone has to go.
    
    Vaan: No!
    
    [Balthier shoots his weapon many times at the machine, causing it to function
    and smash the auralith. Llyud is lifted into the air, and then everyone is hit
    with a beam from above. The room brightens. All are flashing with a purple
    light, very quickly.]
    
    Llyud: Ungh...Ahhh...
    
    [He falls back down, a light engulfs the entire room.]
    
    Chapter 6 Complete!
    
    [A black and white vision of the room shows Vaan's party down and out, with
    the light still engulfing them. It then shows the destroyed auralith, with a
    soothing light coming from it. End scene.]

    [The camera shows Vaan, Penelo, Filo and Kytes on the floor of a mysterious
    place. Penelo, Filo and Kytes get up, and look around, as the camera zooms out
    to show the party on a deserted island, where ground isn't right, crystals
    grow on trees, where the sky is purple, red and gold.]

    Lesrekta, Isle of illusions
    
    [Vaan gets up, a light hits the other characters. Kytes looks gloomy, Filo is
    crying, and Penelo is looking around, and all of them are transparent. Vaan
    looks around.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan!
    
    Kytes: I can see through myself!
    
    Filo: Are we...are we dead?
    
    Filo: What's happening to us?
    
    [Kytes starts crying.]
    
    Kytes: Vaan!
    
    Kytes: Vaaan!
    
    [Penelo heads over to Kytes to comfort him.]
    
    Penelo: It'll be alright. Vaan will find a way to help us.
    
    [Filo and Kytes disappear, she falls to her knees.]
    
    Penelo: Filo! Kytes! No...
    
    [She too disappears.]
    
    [In utter darkness, Llyud appears and thinks to himself. Then in his spot,
    Vaan appears. Player now has control. Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: ...
    
    Llyud cannot put his feelings into words.
    
    [Vaan walks away from him, and nods his head.]
    
    Anger, sorrow.
    
    You are no stranger to what he feels, Vaan.
    
    [Llyud fades out, then Vaan shrinks and fades out.]
    
    [Back on the island, ahead can be seen Balthier and Fran.]
    
    [Upon walking over to them, Balthier pulls out his gun and shoots him down.
    The scene fades.]
    
    [Scene fades in again, Vaan alone and  on the ground.]
    
    Can you hear me, Vaan?
    
    The world you see exits only within your mind.
    
    It is the world in which we live.
    
    Your thoughts betray your doubt and suspicion of Balthier.
    
    But is that truly how you feel?
    
    [Vaan gets up, and looks to the sky. The camera fades out to show even more of
    the island.]
    
    Do you remember the promise you made to your friends?
    
    You said you would never let yourselves forget that which is truly important.
    
    Who's important to you, Vaan?
    
    [Vaan looks straight ahead.]
    
    You know the answer.
    
    Don't let it slip away!
    
    [Scene fades. Back in control, there are three Espers to the west. As Vaan
    approaches them, the screen fades, and shows the world map.]
    
    [The world map shows a place with a golden sky, and thorns down below. It also
    shows a plain field to the edge of he island.]
    
    You can now travel to The End of Dreams!
    
    [To the east, a an entrance has been found.]
    
    You can now travel to The Neverwood!

    You can now travel to Illusion's Home!
    
    [Player control.]
    
    The Neverwood
    
    Dark forest of the Yarhi where shadow and shade hase through perpetual
    twilight. Shifting trees and softly flickering stones animate this surreal
    wood.
    
    Never Alone
    
    Vaan wanders aimlessly after waking in an unknown land. Why did Balthier
    destroy the auralith? Where is everyone? Lost and alone, Vaan calls out to his
    friends.
    
    Mission 7-1
    Never Alone
    The Neverwood
    
    [The camera shows Filo and Kytes entering the mysterious woods from one area,
    Vaan, separate in another and Penelo ad Llyud in a final one.]
    
    Penelo: What is this place?
    
    Llyud: The island of the Yarhi, I should think. The land beyond the summoning
    gates.
    
    [Penelo turns to him.]
    
    Penelo: How did we get here?
    
    Llyud: When Balthier destroyed the auralith there was a blinding light. That
    light must have guided us here. But why would he do this?
    
    Penelo: I don't think Balthier was trying to destroy this place.
    
    Llyud: Because he is your friend?
    
    [Penelo nods.]
    
    Penelo: I'm sure he must've had some reason.
    
    [Llyud agrees, Penelo moves forward slighty while Llyud continues staring, the
    camera giving a different view of the two.]
    
    Penelo: Where's everybody else?
    
    [Llyud starts flying.]
    
    Llyud: We must look for them.
    
    [Camera moves to Filo and Kytes. Kytes looks turn, Filo goes up to him and
    jumps.]
    
    Filo: C'mon, Kytes!
    
    Kytes: I'm...okay.
    
    [Camera moves to Vaan, who is looking around.]
    
    Vaan: Penelo! Llyud!
    Filo! Kytes!
    
    [Camera moves to Penelo who is just looking around, then back to Vaan, who
    looks down. The camera zooms out to a sky high view, showing Filo, Kytes,
    Penelo and Llyud, with Vaan in the middle.]
    
    Vaan: I guess they can't hear me. If you can hear me, then help me fight our
    way to each other!
    
    [Vaan looks up.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemies!
    All allies must survive.
    
    [Camera fades out, battle preparations.]
    
    [After battle preparations, Vaan summons his Espers.]
    
    Vaan: We can't let anything happen to them, ya hear me?
    
    [The Espers cry, Commence!]
    
    [The three parties of Penelo and Llyud, Filo and Kytes, and Vaan and Espers
    continue as they make their way through the mysterious place.]
    
    [When Filo and Kytes are nearby Vaan. Vaan glows, Filo gets off her board.]
    
    Filo: (pant pant) Boy, am I tired.
    
    Kytes: Since Vaan's not here, I guess it's up to me to watch out for ya.
    
    [Kytes swings his staff.]
    
    Kytes: Don't worry, I won't let anything happen to ya, Filo!
    
    [Kytes gestures, Filo laughs.]
    
    Filo: (laugh) You sound just like him!
    
    [Back to Vaan.]
    
    Vaan: Looks like they're okay.
    
    [Vaan stops glowing, Filo gets back on her skybandit, end.]
    
    [The battle continues, as Penelo and Llyud head closer to Vaan, he starts
    glowing.]
    
    Vaan: Penelo! Llyud! Are you all right?
    
    [Penelo looks around.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan? Where are you?
    
    Llyud: They're all right. Come, we must move on.
    
    [Vaan stops glowing, End.]
    
    [After all the Espers have been rid of, Penelo, Kytes, Filo and Llyud all
    start to glow, and are transported elsewhere.]
    
    [Back to Vaan and his Espers.]
    
    Vaan: What happened to them?
    
    [A flash of light, the screen turns black and white.]
    
    Somewhat heavy-handed, I know. I'm sorry.
    
    [Vaan looks up.]
    
    Vaan: Whaddaya mean, sorry? Who do you think you are?
    
    [A flash occurs and the place becomes colour again, as a Great Malboro appears
    behind him, spraying its toxic breath all around. As he prepares to fight it,
    the rest of the party joins him.]
    
    [The battle continues, as the party all face and take down the Malboro. The
    party all do a victory stance, then everyone but Vaan disappears.]
    
    Vaan: I'm coming, Penelo!
    
    Mission Complete
    
    [After the battle, Vaan is looking around in the forest for everyone else. He
    calls out.]
    
    Vaan: Hello?

    Illusion's Home
    
    Waves of Mist radiate from this secluded spring, lapping at the blooming
    flowers of remembrance. Herein all creatures revisit their home. It is the

    [Filo and Kytes turn back towards Penelo, who agrees.]
    
    Penelo: You can be sure he's off moping somewhere. He's useless on his own.
    
    [Kytes laughs.]
    
    Kytes: (laugh)
    
    [Filo jumps.]
    
    Filo: I hope we find him soon.
    
    Objective:
    Find Vaan.

    bring down gates and open new pathways. Continuing further in...]
    
    Filo: Where's he hiding?
    Kytes: Vaaaaan!
    
    [Kytes turns to Penelo.]
    
    Kytes: You don't think anything happened to him, do you?
    
    Filo: He wouldn't just leave us behind... would he?
    
    Penelo: You know Vaan. He'd never leave any of us when we're in trouble.
    
    [Filo looks determined.]
    
    Filo: I know.
    Kytes: That's right!
    
    Penelo: That doesn't mean he won't get a good scolding when we find him!
    
    [The party continue further inside the forest, opening up another path to
    Vaan. Along the way to another mysterious flower...]
    
    Llyud: I don't understand. I feel a pain in my chest, as though a spear has
    pierce my heart.
    
    [Llyud looks down.]
    
    Penelo: You miss Vaan...don't you? When you lose something- someone- important
    to you, that's how you feel.
    
    [Llyud turns around and looks up.]
    
    Llyud: I see. So even in loss, there is something to be found.
    
    Penelo: If I didn't know any better, I'd say you were making a joke.
    
    [The party continues, in search of Vaan. The party heads over to the
    transparent image of him. As Penelo approaches, he disappears, and she runs to
    where he was, falling to the floor. The camera fades.]
    
    [Camera shows Penelo in the middle of Llyud, Filo and Kytes, while still on
    the ground. Filo and Kytes and looking around.]
    
    Filo: Where is he?
    
    Kytes: Vaaaaan!
    
    [Llyud walks over to Penelo.]
    
    Llyud: We must continue our search.
    
    [Penelo gets up, looking down. A flash of light, and the world fades dim, no
    colour.]
    
    This is the realm of the Yarhi. A place where anima is given form.
    
    [Everyone looks around.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan?
    Filo: Vaan!
    
    [The world comes back to colour while the characters stay gray, before slowly
    turning back to colour again. Kytes walks forward.]
    
    Kytes: I don't think that's Vaan.
    
    [Llyud walks away from Penelo.]
    
    Llyud: If we are to find Vaan, we must believe that we can. We must will it.
    I, too, wish to find him.
    
    [Everyone is surprised and turn towards Llyud.]
    
    Penelo: You do?
    
    [Llyud turns and thinks.]
    
    Llyud: I believe I have found my purpose.
    
    [Filo runs over to him and jumps up and down. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Filo, Kytes and Llyud are looking at Penelo, who is looking
    down.]
    
    Kytes: We're gonna go on ahead. We'll wait for you up there, Penelo.
    
    [The party moves on, leaving Penelo to her thoughts. Penelo looks up and
    shakes her head, walks one step, then walks another.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan...can you hear me?
    
    [She looks down.]
    
    Penelo: I know you've got your doubts about Balthier, the Judge of Wings, the
    aegyl...well, everything. But you don't have to face those doubts alone.
    
    [She looks up and shakes her head. The camera moves to an overall view of the
    beautiful, mysterious forest.]
    
    Penelo: Ever since we met, you haven't done anything but get me in trouble. So
    if that's what you're worried about, don't. I'm used to it.
    
    [The scene ends on a flower and fades out. Then the camera shows a vertical
    view of the forest, showing Penelo looking down.]
    
    Penelo: I've never told you this, but sometimes, when we're flying, I get
    scared. But it never lasts, because I know you're with me.
    
    [She looks back up again, and walks a little more.]
    
    Penelo: But without you...
    I could never fly.
    
    [She walks onward to join the others, as a mysterious light appears behind
    her, and Vaan comes out.]
    
    Vaan: Penelo?
    
    [Penelo hears him and runs back, and looks down.]
    
    Penelo: You're back!
    
    [She walks over and kisses him, as the rest of the party runs over to meet
    him.]
    
    Filo: Where've you been!?
    Kytes: Vaan!
    
    [He scratches his head, then gives thumbs up to the party, who give it back.
    Then Llyud, Filo and Kytes run off together, with Vaan and Penelo close
    behind.]

    Reminiscence
    
    Vaan and his voice fade like illusions, but Penelo and the rest haven't lost
    hope. They brave the silent forest to find their lost friend.
    
    {During the mission, the party open the nearby treasure chest holding a recipe
    book.}
    
    Kytes: Treasure?
    
    Filo: Not much of a treasure. Just some musty ol' book.
    
    Kytes: Hmm.
    
    Filo: Might as well take it, just in case.
    
    [Kytes laughs.]
    
    Kytes: You're not supposed to say that! Vaan is!
    
    Filo: Oops! My mistake!

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [Back at the world map, head to The End of Dreams.]
    
    [The party are sitting towards the edge of the area, with Llyud standing
    behind them, looking off into the distance.]
    
    Vaan: I wanna believe Balthier, but how can I forgive him after what he did?
    
    [Vaan gets up and walks over towards the edge.]
    
    Vaan: I felt like I needed to do something, but I didn't know what.
    
    [Vaan scratches his head.]
    
    Vaan: I got so caught up in my own problems, I wasn't there when the rest of
    you needed me. I'm sorry.
    
    [The others get up, Filo runs towards Vaan and gets angry.]
    
    Filo: That doesn't sound like you at all.
    
    [Penelo walks closer to him.]
    
    Penelo: None of us should try to bear our burdens alone. We all have to take
    the bad with the good.
    
    [Vaan turns and agrees.]
    
    Vaan: Kinda like your cooking.
    
    [Kytes, Filo and Penelo laugh.]
    
    Kytes: I thought you said you liked Penelo's cooking?
    
    [Llyud walks over towards the group.]
    
    Llyud: What do we do now, Vaan?
    
    Vaan: I'm gonna start by giving Balthier the benefit of the doubt. Once we get
    out of this place, we'll see what he has to say for himself.
    
    [The others agree, the camera moves over to the three Yarhi still on the west
    side, then fades out. Player control. Head towards the Yarhi.]
    
    Filo: You ready to get going, Vaan?
    
    Yeah, let's keep moving.
    Not just yet.
    
    [The camera fades out as a scene begins. Llyud, Filo and Kytes leave towards
    the Yarhi and disappear, Penelo and Vaan are looking at each other. Penelo
    walks a little away from Vaan and stops as he starts talking.]
    
    Vaan: I think there's something wrong with me.
    
    [Penelo turns.]
    
    Penelo: What do you mean?
    
    [Vaan turns around and looks up.]
    
    Vaan: Well, up until now, I'd have given anything to explore a place like this.
    
    [Penelo understands as Vaan turns around and puts his hand on his head.]
    
    Vaan: But now, I don't know. I guess I'm worried about you and the others.
    
    [Penelo laughs.]
    
    Penelo: Aww, you're just a big old softy, aren't you.
    
    [Penelo walks over to Vaan, as they both agree, and leave towards the Yarhi,
    end scene.]
    
    Where the Heart Lies
    
    Reunited with Vaan, the party searches with renewed determination for a way
    home. A strange voice beckons to them, but where does it lead?
    
    Mission 7-3
    Where the Heart Lies
    Illusion's Home
    
    [The camera shows a mysterious, small area in the think of a forest. The
    camera fades to the entrance where the party walk in, and notice Yarhi all
    around them, surrounding them, as if they've gathered. They all stay close
    together, as the place goes gray.]
    
    At last you've come.
    
    This is the real of the mind- our world.
    
    [The places goes back to colour as Filo and Kytes look around, as Penelo and
    Vaan notice something ahead of them. A bright light shines as Velis, walks
    out, the Yarhi making way for him.]
    
    Penelo: Velis?
    
    Vaan: Are you the one who's been doing all this?
    
    Velis: Forgive me. But I needed you to hear our tale.
    
    [Vaan and Penelo look at each other and agree.]
    
    Vaan: Then why didn't you just tell us? [Vaan gets his weapon out.] What you
    did- getting inside our heads, toying with us- it isn't right!
    
    [Vaan runs forward to attack, the Yarhi head in to attack the party.]
    
    Objective:
    Endure the attacks of the Yarhi!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [Battle preparations.]
    
    [After battle preparations.]
    
    Vaan: You have to stop this, Velis!
    
    [Velis looks away.]
    
    Velis: Sorrow, anger, the joy of living- we feel none of these. We are as
    Mydia said- imperfect, incomplete.
    
    Penelo: We don't want to fight you. Please...
    
    [Velis turns back around.]
    
    Velis: I am an illusion born of Mydia's anima, a beast no better than any that
    wanders the land. I am beyond control.
    
    [The camera moves back to the party, who all look at Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: Then we fight! It is the only way to free him.
    
    [The others agree, Commence!]
    
    [The Yarhi attack the party relentlessly As the party fends them off. As the
    battle continues...]
    
    Velis: This is the world the Yarhi call home. A world of illusion. It is a
    world created by the auraliths, made real by the stolen anima of the aegyl.
    
    [The camera moves around the area.]
    
    Velis: When the anima is tainted with evil, we become beasts. The aegyl gained
    the power to summon so they could fight the beasts that preyed on them. And
    with each summoning, the Stone consumes more of the summoner's anima.
    
    Vaan: But how?
    
    Velis: To summon the Yarhi, you must surrender a piece of your anima. Do this
    long enough, and you will have none left. You will succumb to the same fate as
    the aegyl.
    
    Llyud: This is the truth behind the Stones?
    
    [Velis starts floating, glowing with energy.]
    
    Velis: I am shaped by Mydia's anima. That is why I am a Yarhi. Hear my
    plea...while there is still time.
    
    [A dark energy comes over him, as he changes into the Yarhi, Odin. Odin gets
    up high and swings his sword.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Velis!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [The party continues to defend against the torrent of Yarhi attacks, as Velis
    himself charges towards the party. After a heated battle, the party fells
    Velis. Still in the form of Odin...]
    
    Velis: Thank you.
    
    [Velis falls to the ground and disappears, as does the rest of the Yarhi.
    Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are near Velis, who is on his knees. Penelo walks
    closer to him.
    
    Penelo: Velis!
    
    [Vaan steps in front of her as she moves behind Vaan.]
    
    Velis: Penelo. Please, come no closer.
    
    [Penelo is angry.]
    
    Penelo: Your anima can't be gone! It can't be!
    
    [Velis turns.]
    
    Velis: ...
    
    [Vaan edges her away, as she shakes her head.]
    
    Penelo: You want to help us. I know you do.
    
    [Velis walks further away from the party and turns around.]
    
    Velis: No, Penelo. You are not the ones I'm trying to help.
    
    [Energy seeps out of Velis, as the a great light envelops the screen.]
    
    [Now at a flashback, the Judge of Wings is seen in front of the great auracite
    crystal in the skysea fane. The Judge of Wings is summoning Velis.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Great Feolthanos, grant unto me your power!
    
    [She summons Velis. As she walks over to him, Velis talks to the party.]
    
    Feolthanos, who holds dominion over this world, claimed Mydia's anima.
    
    To wrest away the last shred of emotion left to her, he had her summon me.
    
    He did this well knowing the imperfect, incomplete creature I would be.
    
    [The camera zooms in on the scene, then fades to white.]
    
    [Back in the present day, Yarhi are roaming the areas near the party and
    Velis.]
    
    Velis: Since ages past, Feolthanos has used the auraliths to harvest the anima
    of the aegyl. The harvested anima find rest here, in the World of Illusion-
    Aegyl and Yarhi both slaves to Feolthanos's will.
    
    [Penelo walks closer towards Velis.]
    
    Penelo: So then, you brought us here to help free Mydia from Feolthanos?
    
    [Velis turns around and nods.]
    
    Velis: If I were to be destroyed, she might regain some of her anima.
    
    Vaan: But you wouldn't need us for that.
    
    [The Yarhi all gather around.]
    
    Velis: No, there is more.
    
    [Velis turns back to the party.]
    
    Velis: I want you to free all of us, all of the Yarhi, from Feolthanos's
    spell. Through Mydia, Feolthanos is gathering the power of the anima collected
    in the auraliths. He means to use this power to lay siege to the world below-
    to Ivalice.
    
    Penelo: What can we do?
    
    Velis: You must reach the auraliths before Mydia does and destroy them. This
    will free the anima trapped within.
    
    [Vaan realises and walks over even closer to Velis.]
    
    Vaan: That explains why Balthier wanted to destroy the auralith.
    
    Velis: Had he not succeeded, I would not have been able to bring you here. You
    should thank him.
    
    Vaan: Well, we have gotten pretty good at snatching victory from the jaws of
    defeat.
    
    [Llyud is think ing to himself, as Vaan walks over to him.]
    
    Llyud: Vaan...
    
    Vaan: Don't worry, Llyud. Before we're through, you'll be feeling anger,
    sorrow- it'll be great. [Vaan reassures him.] Because that's part of life, too.
    
    [He puts his hand on Llyud's arm.]
    
    Vaan: And when it's all over, we'll have a good laugh together.
    
    [Llyud nods. The camera shows a high aerial view of the conversation, as Vaan
    walks back over to Velis.]
    
    Velis: The last auralith is in the Keep of Forgotten Time, the seat of
    Feolthanos's power. Destroy the auralith, and free the last of the stolen
    anima. Then all that will remain is to defeat Feolthanos himself. Do this, and
    the aegyl, the Yarhi and Mydia will be whole once more.
    
    [Camera zooms back in on conversation.]
    
    Penelo: Do you know where this Keep of Forgotten Time is?
    
    [Velis turns around.]
    
    Velis: Only Mydia knows where it can be found.
    
    Vaan: Then if her anima was stolen, well just have to steal it back.
    
    [Velis starts glowing as he turns back around.]
    
    Velis: Thank you. In you I see...hope.
    
    [He rises up, and all the Yarhi disappear with him, as a sword hovers down to
    the ground, and sticks itself in. Vaan walks over to it.]
    
    [Movie. Vaan walks over to the sword, embedded in the ground. The sword has
    energy flowing around it, as Vaan picks it up from the ground. Impressed at
    the sword and its energy, he swings it around as the energy takes to the
    skies. Look at the sword, Penelo behind him, looks at him, and walks over
    closer to him. She rests herself on Vaan, and Vaan and Penelo feel comforted.]

    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Vaan: So what is this place?
    
    Penelo: Didn't you hear the voice? It said this was the World of Illusion, the
    home of the Yarhi.
    
    Vaan: You heard it too?
    
    Penelo: Uh-huh. At first I thought it might be you.
    
    Vaan: Whoever it was, I don't think it was the Judge of Wings.
    
    Penelo: Neither do I. There was a gentleness in the voice. And something
    familiar...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: I feel like the voice was trying to lead us somewhere.

    Filo: You are really Vaan, aren't you?
    
    Vaan: Of course I am. Who else would I be?
    
    Filo: Just making sure! Y'know, Vaan. I'm sure glad you found us. If we'd lost
    you, I don't know what we'd do... (sniff)
    
    Vaan: I'm not buyin' this act for a minute.
    
    Filo: (laugh) Sure is good to have you back!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: I think it's Penelo who found ya. You two have known each other for so
    long, you've got a special bond that's hard to break!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: I felt a little weird ever since we got here. I don't really know how
    to explain it. It's like...like I feel something else inside me.
    
    Vaan: That voice did say something about anima taking form here. Who knows
    what could happen in a place like this.
    
    Kytes: Yeah, maybe that's it. It just seems like everything we feel is so much
    stronger here.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: I'm still a little scared of this place... But I'll be okay, now that
    you're back.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    [Llyud: You've helped me discover a great treasure, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: A treasure?
    
    Llyud: My anima. It is...difficult to explain. It's as though a small flame
    burns from within me.
    
    Vaan: I think you explained it just fine.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: Something has changed in me, I'm sure of it. If only I could put words
    to this change.
    
    Vaan: Forget words. Just let out a big shout, right from your gut.
    
    Llyud: My gut?
    
    Vaan: Yeah, you know. Just clear your mind and -raaagh!- scream.
    
    Llyud: "Raaagh"?
    
    Vaan: That's the idea. But louder!

    Hearthside
    
    [Nono and Tomaj walk into the sky saloon, as Filo ad Kytes also get up.]
    
    Nono: The Strahl's not looking good, kupo. I can't say how long it will be
    before she's ready to fly again. Do you have room for a weary moogle to rest
    his pompom, kupo?
    
    Tomaj: No objections from me...kupo.
    
    [Penelo and Vaan notice the two.]
    
    Penelo: Nono!
    
    [She run over with the rest following.]
    
    Vaan: Is Balthier with you?
    
    Tomaj: Good to see you sleepyheads are finally up. I've kept our guests
    waiting for you on the bridge.
    
    [Vaan and Penelo agree and make their way to the bridge. Filo looks at the
    moogle in confusion.]
    
    Filo: Who's that?
    
    Kytes: That's Nono, the Strahl's mechanic.
    
    Tomaj: You two look like you've been up to something. C'mon, out with it!
    
    [Filo and Kytes jump.]
    
    Filo: It's a secret!
    Kytes: We're not telling!
    
    [Both of them run ahead, as Tomaj looks on in confusion. End scene.]
    
    [Now at the bridge, Vaan and party run in to meet Balthier and Fran. Balthier
    turns towards the party.]
    
    Balthier: Good of you to join us.
    
    [Vaan walks over, and punches Balthier, who falls back on the ships controls.
    Penelo is surprised, and tries to run over, but Fran steps in, shaking her
    head to Penelo. Vaan is getting angry.]
    
    Vaan: I've just about had it with you!
    
    Penelo: Vaan, calm down!
    
    [Vaan gestures.]
    
    Vaan: You knew all this would happen when you took the treasure, didn't you?
    Well, if you were gonna share the treasure, you could've at least let us in on
    the rest! Who do you think you are, making us think you'd turned against us?
    
    [Balthier shakes his head, gets up and shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Some leading man you're turning out to be.
    
    [Vaan is taken aback.]
    
    Vaan: Since when am I the leading man?
    
    Fran: You would be, if you would act it.
    
    Balthier joins the party!
    
    Fran joins the party!
    
    [Penelo runs over to Vaan's side.]
    
    Penelo: Why don't we get everything out in the open- to clear the air. No more
    secrets.
    
    [Fran walks up and shakes her head.]
    
    Fran: I think not.
    
    [Tomaj and Nono run in to the bridge.]
    
    Tomaj: We're under attack!
    
    [Vaan and Penelo are surprised and turn around.]
    
    Tomaj: The Galbana's surrounded!
    
    [Nono jumps up and down.]
    
    Nono: Kupo!
    
    [Tomaj and Nono turn, Tomaj pointing out.]
    
    Tomaj: Everyone to your stations!
    
    [Everyone else leaves except for Fran, Balthier and Vaan. Player control.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: What will it be? The leading man has to decide when to strike.
    
    It's time!
    Gimme another minute.
    
    [Choose It's time! Camera fades out.]
    
    Mission 7-4
    Aegyl Uprising
    The Skies of Lemures
    
    [Camera shows aegyl surrounding the Galbana, with the party on the outside.
    Llyud is at the front of the party.]
    
    Llyud: Why are they attacking?
    
    Fran: Their anima have returned.
    
    Balthier: And here's the result.
    
    Fran: Base emotions are most quick to surface.
    
    Vaan: They probably don't even realize what they're doing.
    
    [Vaan holds the Cache up to summon Yarhi, but Balthier talks.]
    
    Balthier: Vaan. Don't let yourself become a slave to the Stone. Make sure
    you're the one using it, not the other way around.
    
    [Vaan puts it away, Penelo turns her head towards Balthier.]
    
    Vaan: You know about the auraliths?
    
    Balthier: The highlights, at least.
    
    [Vaan holds up the Cache.]
    
    Vaan: I'm not letting anyone steal my anima!
    
    [Camera moves over towards the soul crystal far behind the party.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemies!
    Your soul crystal must survive.
    
    [The camera zooms out, Battle Preparations.]
    
    [After battle preparations, Llyud holds up some auracite and summons Yarhi to
    the party. A little ahead of the party, a female aegyl swings her weapon.]
    
    Ansei: Llyud? Why do you fight alongside these savages?
    
    Llyud: I wish to learn the truth. The truth of our people, and Lemures. And
    most importantly, the truth of Feolthanos. What manner of god is he? What are
    the depths of his cruelty?
    
    Ansei: You would challenge the Eternal? Blasphemy!
    
    [Llyud looks up past the sky.]
    
    Llyud: No longer can we remain trapped here. We must cast our gaze to the
    world beyond. A world filled with trust and love stretches beneath us.
    
    [Ansei swings her weapon.]
    
    Ansei: I will hear no more! You are a traitor and a heretic!
    
    [Commence.]
    
    [The party battle the anger driven aegyl in the Skies of Lemures as the aegyl
    ad their hordes of Yarhi bombard the ship. The party take down all the enemy's
    leaders, and stop the aegyl threat. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, a sky high view of the party shows them outside the ship.]
    
    Fran: The aegyl, this land- all only pawns to the Occuria.
    
    [Zooming back in on the party, Balthier steps in front of them.]
    
    Balthier: Another fine legacy of Ivalice's "gods."
    
    [Camera fades out, and shows a sequence of events from Ivalice's past while
    boards in the background supports the text. The first one shows the Occuria.]
    
    The Occuria, undying beings who named themselves gods, ruled over Ivalice and
    guided the fate of Man.
    
    Thousands of years past, in the age of the gods, there arose in Ivalice a race
    of winged people who would be known as the aegyl.
    
    [Picture of a being with large wings flying over the sun.]
    
    The Occuria sought to control and guide the aegyl as they had the other races
    of Ivalice.
    
    [Picture shows sky islands with great crystals towering from them.]
    
    But the aegyl would not be ruled, instead choosing to flee into the skies. Or
    so it was believed...
    
    [Picture of the moon and the stars.]
    
    Fearing the wrath of the gods they had so angered, the aegyl used the
    auraliths to erect a barrier that would forever seclude them.
    
    [Picture of a great crystal.]
    
    But a terrible madness lingered within the aegyl, a lust for revenge against
    the gods who had driven them from their birthplace.
    
    And so the aegyl passed from the pages of Ivalice's history into her legends.
    
    [A picture of winged beings with red wings, and a shadowy winged figure
    representing the eternal and his two hands.]
    
    Purvama, the floating lands.
    In the border-skies they wait.
    Untrodden, unknown.
    There sleeps like eternal.
    
    All this time another chapter of Ivalice's history lay waiting in the skies.
    
    [Back to the party.]
    
    Balthier: Then we found the Cache of Glabados, a treasure with a connection to
    the Eternal. The legend was obviously true, and the Cache was the key. Once
    again we'd managed to find ourselves a treasure worth its weight in troubles.
    
    Fran: Eternity is an illusion. But there is one person who believes in that
    illusion. The Judge of Wings.
    
    [Vaan walks up to Fran and Balthier.]
    
    Vaan: The Judge is a woman from Ivalice named Mydia.
    
    Penelo: She loved a man named Velis.
    
    Fran: So you have met.
    
    Vaan: But Feolthanos is using Mydia.
    
    [Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Yes, Feolthanos... I'm beginning to rather mislike the gods.
    
    Fran: Where there is life, there is always choice.
    
    [Penelo walks up and looks to Fran.]
    
    Penelo: Do you mean that Mydia wants to take over Ivalice?
    
    Fran: If she does, we must stop her.
    
    [The camera moves to show Balthier and Vaan looking at each other.]
    
    Balthier: What'll it be, Vaan?
    
    [Vaan nods, camera zooms in on him.]
    
    Vaan: I don't know who's worse- the Occuria for driving the aegyl to hide up
    here, or Feolthanos for stealing their anima all this time. [He turns to the
    sky.] But there's one thing I am sure about. [He gestures.] We've gotta find
    that last auralith and destroy it, or the aegyl will never be free.
    
    Llyud: Destroying the auralith will give Lemures reason to hope again.
    
    Vaan: And once the barrier is down, we can come back and visit anytime we like.
    
    [He runs over to Llyud and gestures.]
    
    Vaan: We have friends we wanna visit here, right?
    
    [Llyud agrees, Balthier moves away from the party.]
    
    Balthier: How moving. So, where do we go next?
    
    Vaan: We have to find Mydia. She can tell us where the last auralith is.
    
    Fran: One thing troubles me. Why did Mydia first come to Lemures?
    
    [Penelo walks over to Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: She couldn't have known about the Cache of Glabados.
    
    [Everyone starts to ponder this, as Tomaj breaks the silence.]
    
    Tomaj: Sorry to interrupt, but there's been a development you may be
    interested in.
    
    [Vaan and Penelo are surprised, everyone turns to see Tomaj and Nono
    approaching the party. Tomaj points out to the sky.]
    
    Tomaj: A fleet of airships is approaching from Ivalice!
    
    [Nono jumps up and down.]
    
    Nono: And Queen Ashe's flagship is with them, kupo!
    
    [Everyone agrees and they all hurry off to the bridge. Chapter 7 Complete!]

    - 7-4 Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Still on the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Fran.]
    
    Fran: When the auralith shattered, you vanished. All was quiet, save the
    summoning gate.
    
    Vaan: That must've been how we got into the World of Illusion.
    
    Fran: We thought as much. And so here we came to await your return.
    
    Vaan: How'd you know you'd find us here?
    
    Fran: The Mist will always lead one home, if it is their wish to find it.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran again.]
    
    Fran: The aegyl have found something. Will you not go to see what it is?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Head over to the message board.]
    
    Balthier: Planning a hunt at a time like this?
    
    [End.]
    
    {Head over to the Sky Saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Maybe we can talk things over with these aegyl. They're usually not
    this violent. I don't think they'd attack us without a good reason.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: I was so happy to be back on the ship, but now we're about to go right
    into another fight.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, it's not our day.
    
    Kytes: You said it. When we were in that other world, I got to thinking about
    what it means to be a sky pirate. no matter how hard things get, you'd never
    just turn and run away, right, Vaan? That's how I wanna be, too.
    
    Vaan: Something for us both to aim for.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: I'm not scared! Well, I mean, I am scared, but I'm not gonna let it
    keep me from doin' what I have to do.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: I don't get it! I thought we helped these aegyl get back their anima,
    but now they're attacking us!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: We must defend the ship, Vaan.
    
    Vaan: Isn't that hard for you? I mean... they're aegyl.
    
    Llyud: It is no easy thing to fight one's own people. But you have done this
    before, have you not? You and the ship are in danger. I cannot sit by and
    watch you come to harm.
    
    Vaan: All right. We'll fight them together.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: There is no doubt in my heart. I am ready to confront my fellow aegyl.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: This Nono...I do not like him. He thinks he's so
    cute with his wings and his pompom. Hrmph! He makes nice with Master Tomaj,
    but I see through his web of deception! If he thinks he'll get away with this,
    he doesn't know who he's messing with!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Nono.]
    
    Nono: When the earthquake struck, we did all we could to keep the Strahl safe,
    kupo, but it was for naught! Woe is me! Kupooo...
    
    Vaan: Don't let it get you down. I'm sure you'll have her fixed up in no time.
    
    Nono: True, true! My crew is already hard at work, kupo!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Nono again.]
    
    Nono: We must strike quick, kupo! Just leave the ship to me. I can't wait to
    roll up my sleeves, tie back my pompom, and see what makes this ship tick!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Just when I thought things were quieting down, I look outside to see
    we've been surrounded. If they get any closer, I'll be beating them back
    myself. You'll see to it, won't you, Vaan?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Seeq sky pirate near Filo.]
    
    Lowland Sky Pirate: Now that's what I call an earthquake! If there's anything
    I hates more 'an climbing mountains, it's gettin' tossed about in 'em!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Ninja sky pirate south of the Seeq.]
    
    Wandering Sky Pirate: That machinist from the Strahl led us to safety when the
    earthquake struck. Without Tomaj and that moogle, we'd never have gotten out
    alive.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Bangaa sky pirate north of Kytes.]
    
    Reckless Sky Pirate: First the earthquake, now this. It's one catastrophe
    after another with you, isn't it? Keeps things interesting though, I'll give
    you that! Why else would we be here, eh?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the moogle sky pirate nearby.]
    
    Land-bound Sky Pirate: Nono's a legend among sky pirates, kupo! A genuine
    hero! Not just any moogle is good enough to work behind the scenes to keep
    Balthier in the air, kupo! You don't think he'd give me his autograph, do you?
    Can't hurt to ask, can it, kupo?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the mountain watch aegel.]
    
    Mountain Watch: Many of the watch are among the aegyl who besiege the ship.
    But I look on you and your friends and know that their lust for revenge is
    misguided.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the female aegyl north of the mountain watch.]
    
    Troubled Aegyl: The aegyl spread their wings to bring judgement to the
    underworld. But I will not join them. I have case aside my pride. I walk among
    sky pirates now.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the female aegyl to the right.]
    
    Aegyl Survivor: Our fellow aegyl have begun to strike back at the sky pirates
    they feel have wronged them. What has brought this to pass? We are not given
    to violence.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the male angel nearby.]
    
    Aegyl deserter: To our friends, we must appear traitors. Even so, I feel no
    desire to leave this ship. I wish to follow Llyud to this journey's conclusion.

    [Back at the world map. To the south of Anda, Heaven's Pillar lies a great
    ship from Ivalice.]
    
    You can now travel to Leviathan!
    
    Leviathan
    
    Gateway to Ivalice
    The latest in a proud line of Dreadnought-class ships to bear the name. Though
    Archadian, she sails under Dalmascan colors as an Imperial gesture of good
    will.
    
    [Player control, fly towards the Leviathan.]
    
    [Movie. An incredible fleet of ships fly in the sky as the Galbana approaches
    the fleet. As the Galbana approaches, the ships get ready to welcome them. As
    the Galbana approaches the Leviathan, on board Basch watches the ship. Ashe
    walks up next to him and watches, smiling.]
    
    Chapter 8
    Ivalice
    Ivalice Revisited
    
    [Inside the airship bridge, everyone is looking at Ashe and Basch, as they
    address the ship.]
    
    Ashe: I wish there were time for a more proper reunion. But time is one luxury
    we do not have.
    
    [Balthier walks up to Vaan, nudging him to show respect to the two. He walks
    forward and does so, as Basch walks forward to speak, while Balthier has moved
    from his original spot.]
    
    Basch: Sky pirates have been wreaking havoc throughout Ivalice. They fight
    using beasts unlike any we've seen. The sky pirates use some sort of magicked
    stone to summon them.
    
    [Everyone seems to react to hearing this.]
    
    Vaan: That's auracite, it has to be. You can use it to summon Yarhi- they're
    like Espers.
    
    [Ashe nods.]
    
    Ashe: We've heard of these Yarhi and Lemures from such sky pirates as we've
    managed to capture. We cannot allow stones of such power to fall into just any
    hands. It could mean another war...or worse.
    
    [Basch walks over to Penelo.]
    
    Basch: You have some experience handling Yarhi. The Empire is studying them,
    but we want your help until the situation is brought under control.
    
    [Filo and Kytes are excited and jump up and down. Vaan gestures to Ashe.]
    
    Vaan: You got it, Ashe! We'll do whatever we can!
    
    Ashe: Then it's settled. Than you, Vaan.
    
    [Vaan looks relaxed while Penelo gets angry at him; Ashe walking out of the
    scene.]
    
    Penelo: Would it have killed you to call her "Your Highness" or "Majesty" for
    once? Seems like a good opportunity for both of us, though. I was hoping we
    could go back to Ivalice to find out more about Mydia and the Cache.
    
    [Everyone seems to agree, Basch looks at Penelo.]
    
    Basch: Then we make for Ivalice. We'll take on another member of our party
    there.
    
    [Everyone seems confused.]
    
    Penelo: Another member? Who?
    
    [Basch walks away and heads over to Ashe. Both of them show of their weapons.]
    
    Ashe joins the party!
    
    Basch joins the party!
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Back to the world map, a familiar desert area is shown.]
    
    You can now travel to Dalmasca Estersand!
    
    Dalmasca Estersand
    
    Desert lying east of the Royal City of Rabanastre. Numerous trade routes cross
    the desert sands, but recent Yarhi attacks have made commerce with outlying
    regions all but impossible.
    
    [Back to the Galbana and the Leviathan in Lemures.]
    
    Navigating the World Map
    Touch the Leviathan to descend to Ivalice.
    
    [Head to Ivalice.]

    The party returns to Ivalice at the behest of Ashe and Basch. Once there, they
    meet an unexpected ally.
    
    Mission 8-1
    An Irresistible Opportunity
    The Dalmasca Estersand
    
    [The party walk into the Estersand, with Basch leading the group. Vaan looks
    around and shrugs.]
    
    Vaan: Funny place for a meeting.
    
    Basch: A meeting in the city would draw too much attention.
    
    [Balthier walks in from behind as the party watches him meet with the party.]
    
    Balthier: There are precious few place this airship wouldn't daw attention.
    
    [Balthier turns around and shrugs. Everyone else also turns around.]
    
    Balthier: Our first visitors have already arrived.
    
    [Further ahead, a sky pirate can be seen.]
    
    Ashe: Sky pirates? Here?
    
    [The white mage conjures up Yarhi, while another does the same.]
    
    Fran: They've laid out a warm welcome for us.
    
    [Back to the party, Vaan swings his weapon.]
    
    Vaan: Let's not disappoint 'em!
    
    [Everyone else readies their weapons.]
    
    Objective:
    Destroy the enemy soul crystal.
    Your soul crystal must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party battle in familiar territory, as the sky pirates attack them.
    Braving through them, the party reaches the enemy soul crystal and destroys
    it. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, everyone but Basch is standing around Balthier, all
    discussing. Basch calls them over.]
    
    Basch: This way, Excellency.
    
    [Everyone turns around to meet Basch, walking with Lord Larsa, as they
    approach the party.]
    
    Larsa: It's been far too long.
    
    [Both Vaan and Penelo walk forward.]
    
    Penelo: Larsa!
    Vaan: This is the last place I expected to see you.
    
    [Larsa nods.]
    
    Larsa: When I heard you'd all be gather in one place, I couldn't resist. And
    the situation before us is more dire than you might know. I trust you're all
    familiar with the person calling herself the Judge of Wings?
    
    [Vaan nods.]
    
    Vaan: Yeah, you could say that. We're trying to find her.
    
    [Basch steps forward.]
    
    Basch: Her choice of the title "judge" has done little to improve people's
    opinion of the Empire.
    
    [Larsa walks back slightly.]
    
    Larsa: She's been staging attacks throughout Ivalice. We must act quickly.
    
    [Ashe walks forward.]
    
    Ashe: If we can stop her, we stop the attacks.
    
    [Larsa turns and agrees.]
    
    Larsa: What's more, we cannot simply leave the Yarhi she's using in these
    attacks to wander freely. I am kept apprised of their deployment and movement.
    
    Larsa: I want you to help us eradicate them.
    
    [Vaan agrees and gestures.]
    
    Vaan: No problem!
    
    Balthier: Do you suppose we might continue this conversation inside?
    
    [Everyone turns to him.]
    
    Balthier: Such a fine assemblage of personages is like to draw even more
    unwanted attention than this ship.
    
    [Everyone walks off towards the ship, end scene.]

    - 8-1 Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Before heading to the Leviathan, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: I think Velis left so he could give part of his anima to Mydia.
    
    Vaan: Or maybe to help us get back to the ship. Or both.
    
    Penelo: Do you think Mydia can really go back to what she was?
    
    Vaan: We made it back. Anything's possible.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: The aegyl won't really be all right until we destroy all the
    auraliths, will they...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: Something's been troubling me.
    
    Vaan: What is it?
    
    Llyud: The Stone you carry, Vaan. You found it in a ruin in the underworld.
    What was a piece of auracite doing beyond the borders of Lemures?
    
    Vaan: That's a good question. There's a lot of things about that Stone that
    bother me, too. I think we need to find some answers in Ivalice.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: Will we find all the answers we seek waiting for us in the underworld?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: How come Llyud's acting so calm, but the other aegyl are attacking us? I
    thought getting their anima back would make them all better.
    
    Vaan: Maybe the feelings they're having now are different.
    
    Filo: Well, I hope they learn that there are good feelings, too.
    
    Vaan: That makes two of us.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: I wonder what Llyud's thinking. It can't be easy to have your friends
    think of you as a traitor.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: The Occuria, Feolthanos...it all makes my head hurt.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: All we've done to help the aegyl, and this is how they thank us?
    
    Vaan: We haven't been doing this for thanks, Tomaj. It's the right thing to do.
    
    Tomaj: I won't argue with that. But it's still nice to be appreciated. This is
    hard work!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: Before we go running off on the queen's business, you might want to
    take a look at the notice board. Just because you take time off to rest
    doesn't mean I do!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier.]
    
    Vaan: So where'd you go after you found the Cache?
    
    Balthier: My business is my own.
    
    Vaan: Fine, don't tell me.
    
    Balthier: I held a lovely lady in my hand, and I wanted to see her properly
    tended to.
    
    Vaan: I don't even wanna know.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier again.]
    
    Balthier: The depth of the Stones is more than we can imagine. Like a woman
    and her wiles.
    Don't let yourself be taken in, Vaan. Hear me?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Head over to the Sky Saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo, scene starts.]
    
    Penelo: People haven't been eating much lately, but I don't think it's my
    cooking. It's hard to keep up an appetite in the middle of all this fighting.
    
    Vaan: Speak for yourself. I don't wanna go charging into battle on an empty
    stomach.
    
    Penelo: Maybe Tomaj knows where we can find something for a nice meal. You
    should check the notice board.
    
    Vaan: That's a good idea. I'll give it a look.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: It's Ashe's ship, but do you think she's on it? It sure would be nice
    to see her again.
    
    Vaan: It has been awhile. She's too busy running the kingdom for something
    like this, though. Isn't she?
    
    Penelo: Too busy to see you, that's for sure!
    
    Vaan: Ashe wouldn't do that. At least I don't think she would...
    
    Penelo: Well, try to show her some respect for once, okay?
    
    Vaan: When haven't I?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo a third time.]
    
    Penelo: Remember, Ashe is queen now, Vaan. Queen! You have to watch how you
    talk around her.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes, scene starts.]
    
    Kytes: Hey, Vaan. Balthier was telling me some stuff, and I was wondering if
    you could help me get it all straight.
    
    Sure, why not?
    Not right now, Kytes.
    
    [Choose the first option.]
    
    Kytes: Where should I start?
    
    Lemures.
    Feolthanos.
    Can we do this later?
    
    [Choose Lemures, Kytes starts thinking.]
    
    Kytes: Let's see... A long, long time ago, the aegyl lived in Ivalice, too.
    But the Occuria turned against them.
    
    Vaan: Right. And that's when they ran away to Lemures.
    
    Kytes: But the Occuria made a barrier around Lemures, and the aegyl were
    trapped there.
    
    Vaan: No wonder they hold a grudge against Ivalice.
    
    Kytes: Yeah, I guess it's not all the sky pirates' fault.
    
    Kytes: Wanna hear about anything else?
    
    [Back to second options, choose Feolthanos. Kytes starts thinking.]
    
    Kytes: Feolthanos is the god of the aegyl.
    
    Vaan: He's been using the auraliths to steal their anima, and that's where the
    Yarhi come from.
    
    [Kytes jumps and looks ready.]
    
    Kytes: That's why we've gotta destroy all the auraliths!
    
    Vaan: Exactly.
    
    Kytes: And even the Judge of Wings is doing what Feolthanos says. So if we
    could figure out who he is, we might learn more about her, too.
    
    [Back to second options, choosing the last one.]
    
    Kytes: I'm still a bit confused, but I'll figure it out as we go.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again and choose the second option.]
    
    Kytes: Okay. I'll think about it some more on my own.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: ...
    
    Vaan: Hello! Anybody home?
    
    Filo: Sorry. I was just thinking. Ever since we got back from the Yarhi's
    world, Llyud's been different.
    
    Vaan: He doesn't seem all that different to me.
    
    Filo: You never notice these kinda things. Trust me, he's different. But it's
    "good" different!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: You sure you haven't noticed anything different about Llyud?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud, scene starts.]
    
    Vaan: Your shop has grown so much I hardly recognize it.
    
    [Llyud nods.]
    
    Llyud: Trade has been favorable.
    
    Vaan: Turning a profit, are you?
    
    Llyud: So much so that we can afford to further reduce our prices for you. If
    there are materials you need, you've come to the right place.
    
    [Vaan scratches his head.]
    
    Vaan: Whoa, you're starting to sound like Tomaj.
    
    Llyud: Now that you mention it...
    
    [Now to options, choose to talk.]
    
    Llyud: Emotions sometimes express themselves in unusual ways.
    
    Vaan: They do?
    
    Llyud: Take you and Balthier, for example. You didn't really hate him, yet you
    struck him.
    
    Vaan: You saw that, did you? It's kinda hard to explain. It was a conversation
    I didn't want to have with him. So I kept it short.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: Queen Ashe, she is your friend?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Fran said you'd be back here before long. Nothing gets past her, does
    it?
    
    Vaan: She's always been like that. You know how those viera are. I'm glad you
    decided to listen to her.
    
    Tomaj: Far be it from me to ignore the wishes of a lovely viera.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: Even if Fran hadn't told me to wait for you, what else do you think I
    would do? I've never been one to leave my friends high and dry, no sir!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith, scene starts if you've built enough equipment.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Oh, it's dreadful. Terrible. A catastrophe! Poor
    Nono...
    
    [Both Cu Sith and Vaan turn to Nono.]
    
    Nono: The Strahl, kupo! Sky pirates, kupo! There it was, kupo! Help, kupo! The
    aegyl, kupo!
    
    Vaan: Don't get your pompom in a knot. Just slow down and start from the
    beginning.
    
    Nono: No time to explain, kupo! We must act at once! Kupo kupo!
    
    [Vaan scratches his head.]
    
    Vaan: All right, all right! I'll do what I can, just calm down. If the
    Strahl's in trouble, we'll help.
    
    Nono: You must, kupo! It's a matter of life and death! Of course, kupo! I'll
    post it on the notice board so you don't forget!
    
    [Back to options, choose to talk.]
    
    Vaan: So, uh, how'd you end up working for Tomaj?
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: I thought you'd never ask! I got caught on one of
    this ship's wings, and Master Tomaj came to my rescue! He saved my life, he
    did!
    
    Vaan: And what about before that?
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: I came from a place beyond the clouds!
    
    Vaan: I thought we were already in a place beyond the clouds...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith again.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: I've never felt more safe than I do now. And I owe
    it all to Master Tomaj!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Nono.]
    
    Nono: Tomaj's heart is in the right place, but he doesn't know his glossair
    rings from a skystone! I'll have to have a long talk with him before he goes
    near another airship engine. Kupo...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran, scene starts.]
    
    Vaan: I've about had it with all these secrets.
    
    Penelo: What did happen between you and the Judge of Wings?
    
    Fran: We encountered her before you. She sought the impossible. To use the
    power of the Eternal to restore life to the unliving. The rest, you know.
    
    Vaan: You fought her and lost?
    
    Fran: Yes.
    
    Vaan: What happened then?
    
    Penelo: You nursed Balthier back to health, right?
    
    Fran: I wouldn't be much of a partner had I not.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Fran again.]
    
    Fran: Something stirs in Ivalice.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {After finishing Battlefield Strahl, back at the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith, scene starts. Vaan looks up at the store.]
    
    Vaan: You've really fixed this place up.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: How kind of you to notice. But it was not me. Nono
    is the fixer-upper who deserves the credit.
    
    Nono: It's the least I could do. A small thank-you for saving the Strahl, kupo.
    
    Vaan: Anytime. And thanks for doing this, Nono.
    
    [Back to options, choose to leave.]
    
    {After crafting so many items, leave the sky saloon and come back.}
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith, scene starts.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Whatever will Master Tomaj do...?
    
    Vaan: What's this about Tomaj?
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Ah! Was I mumbling again? I'm afraid I let myself
    drift off... You see, Master Tomaj learned the whereabouts of an exceptional
    material. But for some reason, he does not post it on the notice board.
    
    Vaan: What's stopping him? If he doesn't post it, what good does it do?
    
    [Cu Sith agrees.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Just so! And that is what I will tell him!
    
    [Back to options, choose to leave.]
    
    {After finishing Comfort Food, back at the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo, scene starts.]
    
    Penelo: Be honest, Vaan. Has my cooking gotten any better?
    
    Vaan: I've gotta hand it to you, Penelo, it really has. Even Kytes and Filo
    are cleaning their plates. I don't know what you did to those eggs we found in
    the mountains, but they were fantastic.
    
    [Penelo looks down.]
    
    Penelo: Thanks, Vaan. Too bad Balthier doesn't share your enthusiasm.
    
    Vaan: He wouldn't touch it, huh?
    
    Fran: It is not your cooking he mislikes. For all his sophistication, he is in
    many ways still a child.
    
    Vaan: Actually, that makes a lot of sense. He definitely likes things his way.
    
    Fran: You have come to know him well.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    {After finishing Incentive, back at the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: The aegyl have always been a patient and generous
    people. To see them take up arms over the salvaging of a few paltry materials
    would once have been unthinkable.
    
    Vaan: You must be talking about what happened back in the mountains. I guess
    times are changing.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Perhaps, but it is still painful to watch as
    Lemures changes before my eyes. It is my home, after all.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, I never thought about it that way.
    
    [Cu Sith nods.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: But no good will come of this gloomy talk. I must
    apply myself to my work!
    
    [Back to options, just leave.]
    
    {Look at the message board.}
    
    Battlefield Strahl
    
    The Strahl is in danger, kupo! She's on Arda, near Heaven's Vigil. You have to
    do something! If anything were to happen to her, I'd never forgive myself...
    -Nono
    
    Comfort Food
    
    It's been a long, hard fight, but moping about won't do you any good! Straight
    from my ears to yours: fresh foodstuffs in Arda! You owe it to yourself!
    
    Incentive
    
    To take down stronger foes, we'll need stronger weapons. I've learned of a
    material inside the cavern on Arda that should do nicely. Watch yourself in
    there.
    
    Ordered Chaos
    
    Aegyl gather at the auralith's cradle on Arda to stage their attack on
    Ivalice. Black words, but nothing unexpected. What is unexpected is to find
    sky pirates among their ranks. What's going on?
    
    Echo of Thunder
    
    A powerful scion lurks in the Ymir Qul Underground. The sound of thunder rolls
    from the cavern, shaking the foundations of Arda. There will be danger
    aplenty, but don't say I didn't warn you.
    
    Destiny in the Stars
    
    Stars are said to fall near the waters of Gugoza Falls, smashing boulders into
    gravel. Could another scion have stirred on that deserted isle?
    
    {After visiting the Leviathan, but before traveling to Ivalice. Back at the
    airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Sure is nice having Basch and Ashe fighting on our side.
    
    Vaan: You said it. We're gonna need all the help we can get.
    
    Penelo: Yeah...things are starting to get pretty serious. I'll feel a lot
    better going into battle with Basch looking out for us.
    
    Vaan: Who wouldn't?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: I think Kytes and Filo feel a little nervous around Ashe. I can't
    really blame them. Even after all we've been through, sometimes I still can't
    believe she's queen!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: So the auracite has found its way to the underworld.
    
    Vaan: If people in Ivalice use the auracite to summon, will their souls still
    be stolen?
    
    Llyud: It does not matter where the Stones are used. The effect will surely be
    the same. Feolthanos's power will grow.
    
    Vaan: Then we better go find out what's happening. And fast.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: I will have much to think on while we travel the underworld. What is
    right...what is wrong. Perhaps this will help me put order to my feelings.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: Vaan, I was wondering. How come Basch left Dalmasca to become a Judge in
    the Empire?
    
    Vaan: It's...kinduva long story.
    
    Filo: Is this some kind of grownup political stuff?
    
    Vaan: Why don't you ask him yourself?
    
    Filo: Well, I would, it's just...that armor he wears is kinda scary. I mean, I
    know he's not like the Judge of Wings or anything, but still.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: Judges are kinda scary...but Basch seems really nice!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: I knew you were friends with the queen, but I never figured I'd get to
    meet her!
    
    Vaan: What's the matter? You're not scared of her, are you, Kytes? She's a bit
    tough on the outside, but she's not so bad once you get to know her.
    
    Kytes: But she's the queen! She lives in a palace and everything!
    
    Vaan: Where else would she live? Besides, that's no reason to be scared of her.
    
    Kytes: I don't know how you do it, Vaan...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: I don't think I'm ready to talk to any queen by myself...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Nono really knows his way around an airship. The Galbana's shipshape.
    We shouldn't have any problems making the trip back and forth from Ivalice.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Head to the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: The place sure has livened up, but all this cooking is wearing me out.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, I bet. And there are more and more mouths to feed all the time.
    
    Penelo: Well, don't worry about the food. I've got it under control. Just make
    sure you keep them under control!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: I sure hope Ashe likes my cooking. She's probably used to something a
    lot fancier.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Do you think I've gotten any better at fighting since we left
    Rabanastre?
    
    Vaan: No question about it.
    
    Kytes: You really think so?
    
    Vaan: Sure. We've seen a lot of adventure since we got to Lemures.
    
    [Kytes nods.]
    
    Kytes: Well, maybe some of that's rubbed off on me. I still have a lot to
    learn, though!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: I seems like we left Rabanastre ages ago. But it really hasn't been
    that long, has it?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: With the wings the aegyl have, they can probably fly all over Lemures,
    huh?
    
    Vaan: I suppose they can.
    
    Filo: It must be nice, having wings.
    
    Vaan: Yeah. Imagine being able to fly all the way to Ivalice without needing a
    ship!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: I wish I could fly the way Llyud does...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Running the ship hasn't been easy with all these mouths to feed. But
    with the queen and a judge magister aboard, the gil should start rolling in!
    
    Vaan: I don't know...Ashe came here on business. I doubt she's got time to go
    shopping. And forget about Basch.
    
    Tomaj: Hm, you've got a point there. Well, I guess I'll have to keep relying
    on my number-one customer.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: (sigh) I'll have to find some way to make ends meet.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: You've gather quite a following. A...boisterous group.
    
    Vaan: That's a good way of putting it. The noise doesn't bother you, does it?
    
    Llyud: Do you imagine I could have traveled with you so long if it did?
    
    Vaan: (laugh) I guess not. Wait. You're kidding, right?
    
    Llyud: ... I just wanted to see the look on your face.
    
    Vaan: You've got a mean streak in you. Maybe getting your anima back wasn't
    such a great idea.
    
    Llyud: All in good fun.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, at my expense!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: You have a way with people, Vaan. This does not come easily for me.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Master Tomaj hasn't been himself lately. He says
    we're in the red. Deep in the red! I haven't seen anything red myself, but it
    sure sounds bad!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Nono, scene starts.]
    
    Nono: I can't figure it out, kupo. Are you a Yarhi, Tomaj's pet?
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: A pet? I am his underling, his laborer, but never
    his pet!
    
    Nono: Oh, one of his peons? Run here, fetch that, kupo?
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: I'll not dignify that with a response! An artificer
    of my skill...a peon!?
    
    Nono: And I'm a master machinist, kupo! What's that got to do with anything?
    
    [Vaan scratches his head.]
    
    Vaan: Don't get your pompom in a knot. You're both great at what you do. Can't
    you just get along?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Nono again.]
    
    Nono: This airship doesn't use any kind of skystone I've ever seen before,
    kupo. It should be able to fly through jagd...or just about anywhere!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: Good luck, Vaan. Nasty business, this, what with Ivalice involved
    now.
    
    Vaan: What, are you just going to sit this one out?
    
    Balthier: I think I've earned a little break, don't you?
    
    Vaan: I'm sure if there's any treasure to be had, your break will be over soon
    enough.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier again.]
    
    Balthier: The Queen of Dalmasca and a judge magister. Quite a fine mess
    Ivalice must be in to bring them here.
    
    [Talk with Fran.]
    
    Fran: Mydia, the Judge of Wings- she is no hume.
    
    Vaan: Then what is she?
    
    Fran: It is hard to say. I sense something unusual about her. Do you not find
    it so?
    
    Vaan: Don't ask me. If you can't figure it out, I don't stand a chance.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran again.]
    
    Fran: We must return to Ivalice. There we may find the key to this mystery.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe.]
    
    Ashe: This is the ship that landed outside of Rabanastre, yes? When it left,
    we weren't sure where it had gone. And we were more than a little surprised to
    learn you were aboard.
    
    Vaan: You're not upset about that, are you?
    
    Ashe: What do you think?
    
    Vaan: I think I'd better apologize and get it over with.
    
    Ashe: Well, I'm grateful it was you. We'd have had little hope of securing the
    help of some other sky pirate so...amicably.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe again.]
    
    Ashe: I didn't know when we'd next meet. I'm grateful for your help.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch.]
    
    Vaan: So, what are we supposed to call you now? Judge magister?
    
    Basch: What do you want to call me?
    
    Vaan: You'll always be just "Basch" to me.
    
    Basch: Then you have your answer.
    
    Vaan: Right! Thanks, Basch!
    
    Basch: Right.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch again.]
    
    Basch: You bear the look of a leader. The others have come to rely on you,
    that much is plain.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Seeq sky pirate.]
    
    Lowland Sky Pirate: Another lovely 'as joined our ranks, eh? A glint in 'er
    eye cold as steel. I know 'er kind well enough. Best appreciated from afar,
    aye.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Ninja sky pirate.]
    
    Wandering Sky Pirate: I seen me some weapons and armor on you and your lot
    that'd make Draklor Laboratory green with envy. Those don't come cheap, you
    know. Your man there's losing a bundle on them, mark my words.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Bangaa sky pirate.]
    
    Reckless Sky Pirate: Something familiar about this young lady and her
    escort... Why, if I didn't know better, I'd say that was a judge magister's
    armor. That's friends in high places you have!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the moogle sky pirate.]
    
    Land-bound Sky Pirate: Nono's a famed moogle among us sky pirates, kupo. To
    think I got his autograph- and even a handprint, kupo! I'll treasure them
    forever!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Mountain Watch aegyl.]
    
    Mountain Watch: He stood watch on the same mountain pass as I. Were it not for
    me, he would never have joined our group of rebels. He would never have been
    injured. In his present state he may not guard his tongue as he should. Do not
    hold it against him.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the aegyl right next to the mountain watch.]
    
    Former Watch: Leave me be.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the female aegyl to the northwest.]
    
    Troubled Aegyl: Once I would not have cared if the underworld the sky pirates
    came from were destroyed. Now...now I am not so certain.
    
    [Talk with the female aegyl tot he northeast.]
    
    Aegyl Survivor: The fate of the underworld does not concern us. There are
    times when I wonder, though, whether it should.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the aegyl next to her.]
    
    Aegyl Deserter: This notion of a horizon where the land meets the sky is new
    to me. In Lemures, when one looks in the distance, one sees only sky.
    
    [End talk.]

    Taking Counsel
    Airship - Bridge
    
    [Everyone is gathered round in the airship bridge.]
    
    Taking Counsel
    Talk to your companions to learn what information they have about the Judge of
    Wings.
    
    [Talk with Balthier, scene starts.]
    
    Balthier: It would seem our Mydia held another piece of the Cache of Glabados.
    I wonder what other secrets lay undiscovered in the ruins.
    
    Vaan: Wouldn't hurt to take another look.
    
    You can now travel to the Glabados Ruins!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch, scene starts.]
    
    Basch: I've news you'll want to hear, Vaan. There was someone asking about
    Lemures not long before all this began.
    
    Vaan: Who? And where?
    
    [Basch shakes his head.]
    
    Basch: I do not know, but I do know where to find someone who might. He's in
    Giza Plains, just outside Rabanastre. The information he has may prove useful.
    
    [Vaan agrees.]
    
    You can now travel to Giza Plains!
    
    [End.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa, scene starts.]
    
    Larsa: I've just heard word of the Judge of Wings's whereabouts. It would seem
    she's been spotted near the Paramina Rift. We must investigate at once!
    
    [Vaan agrees.]
    
    You can now travel to the Paramina Rift!
    
    [End, scene starts.]
    
    Penelo: So, we have a plan now?
    
    [Vaan gestures.]
    
    Vaan: Close enough. Let's get going!
    
    [Vaan uses the Cache, and the ship takes off.]
    
    [Back at the world map, another familiar looking desert area awaits.]
    
    You can now travel to the Giza Plains!
    
    Giza Plains
    
    Savannah to the south of the Royal City of Rabanastre, currently in the Dry.
    Members of the Rabanastre watch have been dispatched to patrol the plains amid
    reports of Yarhi sightings.
    
    [A great, snow mountain is now available.]
    
    You can now travel to The Paramina Rift!
    
    The Paramina Rift
    
    Snowbound chasm in the northeastern reaches of Kerwon. The holy mountain of
    Kiltia, Bur-Omisace, rises nearby, welcoming pilgrim and refugee alike.
    
    [A small thin island can now be traveled to.]
    
    You can now travel to The Glabados Ruins!
    
    Glabados Ruins
    
    Ruins situated atop a lone island off the southern coast of Bervenia in a
    region known as Glabados. Sky pirates assigned this name to the ruins as well,
    its true name lost to history.

    - Taking Counsel Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {While Taking Counsel, at the airship bridge, before taking off.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: What's the Judge of Wings doing in Ivalice?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: I should like to see the ruin that held this piece of auracite. What
    other links to Lemures might it hide?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: Enough talk! Let's get back to exploring!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: All this time we've been in Lemures, the Yarhi have been attacking
    people down in Ivalice.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Wish I could help, but I've been away too long to be of much. If you
    want my advice, ask someone who's been in Ivalice a little more recently.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran.]
    
    Fran: Yes? You cannot need to ask me here next to go.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe.]
    
    Ashe: Until we learn where the Judge of Wings is, all our plans are for
    naught. We should discuss what course to take next.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier after talking once before.]
    
    The ruins are doubly so now, but you never know what we may find.
    
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch after talking once before.]
    
    Basch: It is strange that an entire sky continent should go undiscovered in a
    world of so many airships. Home to an entire race whose very existence was
    lost to history. I would scarcely have believe it myself had I not seen it
    with my own eyes.
    
    Vaan: That's what's so great about being a sky pirate. There's always
    something new waiting just around the corner.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch a third time.]
    
    Basch: What did this person hope to find in his search for Lemures? I cannot
    think it idle curiosity.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa after talking once before.]
    
    Larsa: I've made arrangements with Tomaj to use the notice board he's placed
    on the bridge. I'll be sure to post any goings-on in Ivalice which might
    interest you.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Leave prematurely on the airship bridge.}
    
    Penelo: Vaan! Don't you think we should figure out what to do before running
    off?
    
    [Vaan scratches his head, end.]
    
    {Head to the notice board.}
    
    Tomaj: This is hardly the time to be catching up on your reading! How about
    doing that after everyone's done talking?
    
    [End]
    
    {After the ship has taken off, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Finally back in Ivalice after all this time. It sure is nice having
    solid ground under out feet again.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: I have never traveled to the underworld before. To look below me and
    see only earth is...troubling.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: Whaddaya think everybody back home'll say when they hear we're really
    sky pirates now?
    
    Vaan: It's a little soon for talk like that. There'll be plenty of time to
    tell everyone back in Lowtown what you've been up to once we're back.
    
    Filo: Okay, okay. I guess we're just getting to the best part, anyway, aren't
    we.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: I wonder what Llyud thinks of Ivalice? I sure hope he likes it!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Hard to believe there are Yarhi so close to Rabanastre.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, but so far it doesn't look like any have made it into the city.
    
    Kytes: Let's hope it stays that way. What if something happens to Migelo or
    the others?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: I guess we're fighting to keep everybody back home safe. We can't let
    'em down!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Just because we have business down here doesn't mean we can't go pay a
    visit to Lemures. It's not much, but I'm still getting information for the
    notice board here and there.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {At the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Fran, scene starts.]
    
    Vaan: Where'd Ashe go?
    
    Fran: She went to commune with the winds.
    
    [Camera fades out, and shows Ashe on the outside of the airship. Balthier
    walks over to her.]
    
    Balthier: A little drafty, don't you think? You're like to be carried off.
    
    Ashe: I wanted to feel the wind on my face. I'll not be long.
    
    Balthier: As you say.
    
    Ashe: There's something I- (sigh)
    
    Balthier: Go on.
    
    Ashe: I traveled to Rozarria not long past. I saw Al-Cid.
    
    Balthier: A state visit, was it? A queen's work is never done.
    
    Ashe: You really must see a sunset in the Ambervale. It was beautiful.
    
    Balthier: No more beautiful than the view fro the Strahl, I should think.
    
    Ashe: If only I'd had the time to appreciate it then.
    
    Balthier: There's still time.
    
    Ashe: Is there, Balthier?
    
    [Ashe turns around to look at him, then walks off. Balthier shrugs and joins
    her. Camera fades, and now it's back to the sky saloon. End.]
    
    [Talk with Fran again.]
    
    Fran: Mydia's trail is much too easily followed.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch.]
    
    Basch: Why did Mydia choose to guise herself as a judge? I cannot accept that
    it is mere coincidence. She must have some reason.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa.]
    
    Larsa: I get the impression that Filo and Kytes are avoiding me. Surely they
    cannot still fear the Empire.
    
    Vaan: It's not that. They just get a little nervous around you is all. They're
    not all that much younger than you. I'm sure they'll open up if you give 'em a
    little time.
    
    Larsa: We shall see.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa again.]
    
    Vaan: You could've sent a messenger to tell us what you wanted us to do, but
    you couldn't resist coming. Still the same old Larsa.
    
    Larsa: Oh?
    
    Vaan: Not that that's a bad thing. Actually, I was sorta relieved you hadn't
    changed. I mean, your family has a history of...letting power go to their
    heads.
    
    Larsa: You need not fear that from me.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa a third time.]
    
    Larsa: I had no idea Penelo was such an excellent cook!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the mountain watch aegyl.]
    
    Mountain Watch: I find myself growing more like you with each day. This
    concept of anima which Llyud describes begins to make sense.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {World map. Look at the mission data of the two others before you start them
    later.}
    
    The Secluded
    
    The party's investigation into the origins of the Judge of Wings points to
    someone with a fervent interest in the sky pirates' legend of the sky
    continent, but her identity remains a mystery.
    
    Ye Who Rest
    
    The Judge of Wings was sighted in the cold wastes of the Paramina Rift, but
    why has she traveled to this frozen place? What conection does she bear to
    those who rest here?
    
    Last Will and Testament
    
    The search to uncover the mystery of the Cache has led back to where it all
    began. What secret lies locked in the cold stone? The answer waits in a hidden
    chamber of the shattered ruins.

    Mission 8-2
    The Secluded
    Giza Plains
    
    [A patrol from Rabanastre is roaming around the Giza Plains as the party enter
    from the south, led by Basch.]
    
    Basch: A man of the Rabanastre city watch has information for us. His patrol
    takes him through this stretch of Giza. He should not be far.
    
    [Basch looks around and sees many patrols stationed around the Giza Plains,
    with many Yarhi around as well. Camera goes back on the party, as Ashe moves
    forward.]
    
    Ashe: I had no idea Yarhi had been sighted so close to the city.
    
    [Vaan runs towards the Yarhi and swings his sword.]
    
    Vaan: Then we'll just have to do something about that, won't we?
    
    [He walks back to Basch.]
    
    Vaan: Do you know which guard we need to talk to?
    
    [He shakes his head.]
    
    Basch: No. I've told you all I know. We will approach them one by one until we
    find him. We should waste no time. An attack could come at any moment.
    
    [All agree.]
    
    Objective:
    At least one ally must survive.
    The informant must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party searches through all the patrols for the informant before he is
    killed by the Yarhi. Through clues from the other patrols, the party
    eventually meets up with the informant, patrolling the northeast area of the
    Giza Plains.]
    
    Dalmascan Soldier: Aye, I'm the one you're looking for. You're here about the
    unusual young lady I spoke with, yes? Where to begin?
    
    [Whether Titan is defeated or not, or whether he appears or not, Mission
    Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Balthier and Fran are on the bridge, while Ashe and Basch
    are interviewing the informant. Vaan walks away from the informant, his head
    down.]
    
    Dalmascan Soldier: She said she was traveling to learn all she could about a
    lost sky continent. She was quite taken with the notion. Charming thing. Fair
    of skin, with golden hair. Did I mention she was a viera?
    
    Basch: A fair-skinned viera?
    
    [Balthier and Fran turn towards the conversation, Vaan is pacing up and down.]
    
    Dalmascan Soldier: She had her ears tucked in her hat- they weren't al that
    long, you see. She could easily have passed for a hume.
    
    [Ashe and Basch look at each other and shake their heads, Vaan still pacing.]
    
    Ashe: That doesn't sound like any viera I've ever heard of.
    
    Dalmascan Soldier: I even commented how lovely her hair was. She turned as red
    as a Galbana lily. A cute one like that, you'd think her sued to such
    compliments.
    
    [Camera fades out, the fades back in, zoomed in on the conversation. Vaan
    walks over to the soldier.]
    
    Vaan: Any idea where she might be?
    
    Dalmascan Soldier: Your guess is as good as mine. She ran off, and I've not
    seen her since.
    
    [Vaan looks back at Penelo, both shaking their heads. Penelo walks up to the
    informant.]
    
    Penelo: Did she tell you what her name was?
    
    Dalmascan Soldier: Her name? Now that you mention it, I think she did. What
    was it...? Ah, that's right! She said her name was Mydia.
    
    [Everyone is surprised, camera zooms far out.]
    
    Vaan: Did you say Mydia?
    Penelo: Mydia!?
    
    [Camera fades out. The party has gathered around in the middle of Giza Plains
    in a circle.]
    
    Fran: Mydia is of a different tribe of viera. They are often called the Exiled.
    
    Vaan: There are different kinds of viera?
    
    [She nods.]
    
    Fran: There are. The features the guard described can leave no doubt. Flaxen
    hair, fair skin, and short ears. And more long-lived than all other viera.
    
    Ashe: How could their existence pass without notice?
    
    [Fran shook her head.]
    
    Fran: Their numbers were ever few. They were driven from the Wood long ago as
    monsters. Exiles. We thought them long dead.
    
    Penelo: So the Judge of Wings- Mydia- is one of the last of her people?
    
    Balthier: With a keen interest in Lemures. The plot thickens.
    
    [Vaan walks out of the circle.]
    
    Vaan: What's it all mean?
    
    [Camera fades out, end scene.]
    
    [Now head over to The Paramina Rift.]

    Ye Who Rest
    The Paramina Rift
    
    [Camera shows a great mountain covered in snow. The place all around is
    snowing, as Filo and Kytes walk into the area. Kytes rests his hands on his
    knees.]
    
    Kytes: It's c-c-cold.
    
    [Camera zooms back in, Filo gets off her skybandit and gets mad at Kytes.]
    
    Filo: What kind of talk is that for a sky pirate? Shape up or ship out!
    
    [She runs ahead, as Kytes jumps and follows her. Vaan, Penelo walk into the
    scene, as does the rest of the party. Vaan and Penelo look around.]
    
    Penelo: This is where the Judge of Wings was last seen.
    
    [Vaan is confused.]
    
    Vaan: What was she doing here, anyway?
    
    Filo: Hey, Vaan! Look at this!
    
    [Vaan and Penelo turn and notice Kytes and Filo surrounded by a memorial. They
    are jumping up and down.]
    
    Kytes: Have you ever seen anything like it, Vaan?
    
    [Vaan and Penelo run over, the camera fades. The camera fades back in showing
    the entire party gathered around it.]
    
    Vaan: What is it?
    
    [Ashe walks up.]
    
    Ashe: It's a memorial commemorating those who died in the battle of Nalbina.
    This site was chosen for its vicinity to the holy grounds of Mt Bur-Omisace.
    
    Vaan: What would Mydia want with this?
    
    [Filo notices something and runs closer to the monument.]
    
    Filo: Look, Vaan! Velis's name is right there on the memorial!
    
    [Penelo walks forward and ponders.]
    
    Penelo: Velis did say he was in Nalbina when the war came.
    
    [Ashe looks at Basch, then look back at the memorial.]
    
    Vaan: So the Judge of Wings was visiting Velis's grave? [He shakes his head.]
    I guess she has a soft side, too.
    
    Basch: Strip away the armor, there is still a person underneath.
    
    [Penelo shakes her head.]
    
    Penelo: Maybe she came here hoping to find part of herself.
    
    Ashe: Trapped by her own past...
    
    Vaan: Then this is all one big stroll down memory lane for her? I didn't think
    she was so sentimental.
    
    [Fran notices something as a voice is heard.]
    
    I left my anima in Lemures.
    
    [Everyone turns as the Judge of Wings enters the scene, complete in her dark
    aura.]
    
    Vaan: She's here!
    
    [Basch walks up to her to confront her.]
    
    Ashe: Basch!
    
    [Basch lifts up his weapon.]
    
    Basch: I will deal with her, Highness.
    
    [The Judge of Wings uses the Cache of Glabados. Energy pours out of her, as
    Basch is affected by a pink light, and falls to his knees as she laughs.]
    
    Judge of Wings: You are a false judge. You fanned war's flame, only then to
    heel like the cur you are before the throne of empire.
    
    Basch: I am no cur!
    
    Judge of Wings: Your every breath betrays those who died for you. [She
    gestures.] Is it not just that they should watch as you draw your last?
    
    [Zombies rise from the ground, and attack Basch. As two Zombies are about to
    get to him, he gets up and strikes them.]
    
    Basch: No!
    
    [The zombies are sent flying as more zombies make for Basch. Basch walks over
    to confront them.]
    
    Basch: The dead will find no release in blood.
    
    [Basch slashes at the next two, and sends them flying as another zombie
    approaches him.]
    
    Basch: Perhaps I am no true judge. But the future is built on more than what
    is passed.
    
    [He runs and slices straight through the last zombie, who disintegrates into
    Diamond Dust, as he is now right in front of the Judge of Wings.]
    
    Basch: A man whose gaze bends ever back cannot hope to find his way forward.
    
    [The Judge of Wings summons more zombies as Basch jumps back.]
    
    Basch: You would bind yourself to illusions, to the fallen. I will cut you
    free of those bonds!
    
    [He runs in between the three of the zombies, and strikes at them, one by one,
    sending them flying. He then readies his sword against the Judge of Wings.]
    
    Basch: There is no justice in revenge!
    
    [Basch runs to strike the Judge, but she teleports and he runs right through
    her. He then notices more zombies appearing to the north, the camera fades.
    The camera comes back to show Basch prepared to strike at the zombies as the
    rest of the party joins him.]
    
    Vaan: We're with you, Basch!
    
    [Everyone else readies their weapons.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemies!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party climbs their way up the mountain as the never ending torrent of
    zombies pile up on the party. The zombies continue to appear out of the
    summoning gates, but no one is there to conjure them. The party fight off the
    torrent and wipe out all the zombies. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are gathered again at the memorial, with
    everyone's eyes on Basch.]
    
    Penelo: The undead we were fighting- were they people who died in the war?
    
    [Fran shakes her head.]
    
    Fran: No, though she would have you believe otherwise.
    
    [Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Legions of the undead risen to fight at her side- quite the
    intimidating show she puts on.
    
    Vaan: She went to all that trouble- summoning Yarhi that look like zombies-
    just to scare us?
    
    [Camera zooms in on the memorial, slowly showing a close up of everybody
    there.]
    
    Penelo: She wants revenge for the war that took Velis from her.
    
    Ashe: We each bear war's burdens.
    
    Basch: Yes, but she has let hers drive her to revenge.
    
    [Camera changes to a side view as Ashe walks up to the memorial.]
    
    Ashe: (sigh) Ivalice has moved past the war. Times have changed.
    
    Larsa: Yes, but do people make the times, or the other way round?
    
    [Ashe and Basch are surprised as everyone turns behind them, as Larsa walks in
    to greet them.]
    
    Bacsh: Excellency!
    
    [Larsa nods as he walks towards the memorial, Fran, Balthier and Basch making
    way for him.]
    
    Larsa: If this new era is to shape the people living in it, it will not happen
    overnight.
    
    [Ashe agrees.]
    
    Ashe: Our struggle is never truly won, is it? Always must we fight for our
    future.
    
    [Both Ashe and Larsa look at each other and agree. Vaan walks over to them,
    scratching his head.]
    
    Vaan: If there's any way we can help, all ya have to do is ask.
    
    [Ashe turns to Vaan as both Ashe and Larsa agree. Balthier starts to leave,
    end scene.]
    
    [Back at the world map, head to The Glabados Ruins.]

    - 8-2(c) Last Will and Testament
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mission 8-2
    Last Will and Testament
    The Glabados Ruins
    
    [Balthier runs inside the Glabados Ruins, with the others following. Balthier
    is looking around.]
    
    Vaan: What are we doing back here?
    
    [Balthier turns around.]
    
    Balthier: Counting the Stone Mydia has, there were three treasures in the
    Cache, yes?
    
    [Penelo walks up.]
    
    Penelo: Then that must mean there's a room here we haven't been to.
    
    [Vaan ponders, while Penelo looks around. She eventually finds something.]
    
    Penelo: Over there!
    
    [She runs forward and so does everybody else, the camera fades.]
    
    [Camera now shows Penelo just outside a new pathway inside the ruins.]
    
    Penelo: Look at this!
    
    [Everyone runs over to look at it, Balthier shrugging.]
    
    Balthier: The way to the hidden chamber lain bare.
    
    [Vaan walks up and addresses the party.]
    
    Vaan: What are we waiting for?
    
    [Everyone seems to agree.]
    
    Objective:
    Find the hidden chamber!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations and no Yarhi summoning, Commence!]
    
    [The party make their way through the new area of the ruins. As they open up
    new doorways, more enemies spawn, including Ifrit. When the get to the end and
    open the final doorway, the Elder Wyrm appears, and sets off his mud breath.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat the Elder Wyrm!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [As battle continues, the Elder Wyrm makes his way towards the party. However,
    the party slay the dragon, and are victorious. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Balthier inspects the empty pedestal, with the others
    looking on from behind.]
    
    Balthier: I dare say we're not the first visitors these halls have seen in
    recent days.
    
    [Fran walks up and shakes her head.]
    
    Fran: No, I sense something on the Mist. The other treasure was here.
    
    [Balthier walks over to the middle of the pedestal.]
    
    Balthier: Then this must be where Mydia found it.
    
    [The camera moves to a higher angle, closer towards the pedestal. A statue of
    a winged being can be seen, as Balthier notices something.]
    
    Balthier: Fran, take a look at this.
    
    [She walks over while Vaan follows closely behind her.]
    
    Balthier: There's something etched in the stone. Can you make it out?
    
    [A close of view of the markings on the statue can be seen.]
    
    Fran: It's written in an ancient hand.
    
    [A piano sound is made as the message says...]
    
    To the viera I took for my wife, to our beloved children, this gift I leave-
    Feolthanos.
    
    [Llyud reacts upon hearing this.]
    
    Llyud: Feolthanos!?
    
    Vaan: Why would a god from Lemures build a temple in Ivalice? And what's this
    about a wife and children?
    
    [Balthier shakes his head.]
    
    Balthier: I see where this is going.
    
    [Everyone reacts to it as Balthier starts to leave the area.]
    
    Penelo: And where's that?
    
    Balthier: The Cache of Glabados was a father's legacy to his family.
    
    [He shrugs and leaves. Filo and Kytes have run up the stairs, and watch him
    leave, confused. They then walk over to the party, Vaan shrugs and shakes his
    head.]
    
    Vaan: Where's he going?
    
    Fran: The hearts of men are wont to pursue ambition.
    
    [Vaan's confused.]
    
    Vaan: What's that supposed to mean?
    
    [Everyone else turns to Fran, Penelo angry.]
    
    Penelo: You don't see Vaan running off like that.
    
    [Vaan is still confused as Fran shakes her head.]
    
    Fran: Feolthanos took a viera as his wife. Their children are surely the
    fair-skinned viera from whom Mydia is descended.
    
    [Everyone looks at each other and ponders. Soon, Kytes realises something.]
    
    Kytes: I just realized something!
    
    Kytes: The Galbana started moving when we brought the Cache onboard, right?
    
    [They all turn to Kytes, while Filo is confused.]
    
    Filo: yeah, but what's that got to do with anything?
    
    [Penelo figures it out too.]
    
    Penelo: Of course! The Galbana must've been called to Ivalice when we took the
    Cache! Feolthanos made the airship to bring his family to Lemures!
    
    [Vaan is angry and taken aback. Everyone but Fran turns to him.]
    
    Vaan: You mean the Galbana belongs to Feolthanos!?
    
    Llyud: All this time we've been traveling in a vessel of the Eternal.
    
    [Llyud looks up.]
    
    Llyud: If Feolthanos came from this land, why did he leave it in favor of
    Lemures?
    
    [Camera fades out, end scene.]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - Taking Counsel (2)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Taking Counsel
    Airship - Bridge
    
    [The party has gathered round the airship bridge.]
    
    Vaan: So what do we know so far?
    
    Penelo: The Judge of Wings is really a viera named Mydia. Only she's not just
    any viera, she's one of the last of the Exiled viera.
    
    Vaan: And she was trying to learn as much as she could about Lemures.
    
    Balthier: The land where eternity dreams.
    
    Penelo: Right. She probably wanted to find a way to be with Velis again. And
    that's why she went looking for the Cache of Glabados- its connection with the
    Eternal.
    
    [Vaan walks forward slightly and thinks, then walks back to where he was and
    continues thinking.]
    
    Vaan: Along the way she became the Judge of Wings. But what happened to her
    after she found the Cache?
    
    Penelo: That's the big question, isn't it?
    
    Fran: If I may...
    
    [Everyone turns to Fran.]
    
    Fran: You forget the inscription we found in the ruins.
    
    Penelo: The inscription!
    
    [Vaan figured it out.]
    
    Vaan: That's when she found a way to get to Lemures!
    
    [Balthier walks up slightly and shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: The pieces fit. She knew that her tribe of viera were the sons- or
    daughters, in this case- of Feolthanos. She went to Lemures looking for him.
    
    Llyud: Incredible.
    
    Ashe: There's one thing I still don't understand: Why leave a trail that we
    could follow? Unless she wanted us to find it...
    
    Vaan: Yeah...what's she up to?
    
    [The camera moves up and fades out, player control. Attempt to launch the
    ship.]
    
    Tomaj: Ah, Vaan!
    
    [Camera fades out, then fades back in to show everyone in the middle of the
    ship, including Filo and Kytes.]
    
    Filo: Look, Vaan! It's a map! And it's really old!
    
    Kytes: We can't read a word.
    
    Vaan: Where'd you dig that up?
    
    Tomaj: These two found it in the ruins.
    
    [Kytes looks down.]
    
    Kytes: We wanted to give it to Larsa. You know, a surprise.
    
    [Filo also looks down.]
    
    Filo: Sorry we didn't tell you.
    
    [Fran walks over the Filo and reads the map.]
    
    Fran: ...the hidden village of the daughters of Feolthanos... The Feol viera.
    They dwell in Roda Volcano- in Bervenia.
    
    [Vaan seems surprised and turns to Fran.]
    
    Vaan: Bervenia?
    
    Larsa: Thank you. This will no doubt prove a vital discovery.
    
    [Filo and Kytes jump up and down.]
    
    You can now travel to Roda Volcano!
    
    [Back to world map, a great volcano can be seen.]
    
    You can now travel to Roda Volcano!
    
    Roda Volcano
    
    Active volcano that dominates the Bervenian countryside. Not so much as a weed
    grows in its barren shadow. The races of Ivalice have long avoided this
    desolate wasteland.
    
    Fighting Back Tears
    
    The map in the ruins showed the way to a hidden village of exiled viera-
    Mydia's home. Following the only clue they have, the party makes for a volcano
    indicated on the map.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - Taking Counsel (2) Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {During Taking Counsel, at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Mydia must've felt so alone when she lost Velis. That's probably all
    the chance Feolthanos needed.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: Mydia obeys Feolthanos because she is descended from him. But how can a
    god have children?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: Anyone who calls himself a god to rule over his flock as a
    benevolent father...
    ...has issues that need resolving.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran.]
    
    Fran: The laws of the Wood have ever been strict. The Exiled flouted these
    laws, and met the same fate as all who do.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe.]
    
    Ashe: The Empire is responsible for Velis's death, and yet she wears the armor
    of a judge. What reason could she have for this?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch.]
    
    Basch: I've not seen your young friends. You don't think they've gotten into
    trouble, do you?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa.]
    
    Larsa: The Ministry of Law has its finest agents searching the land even now.
    It should not be long before they have news to report.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Head to the notice board.}
    
    Penelo: Have you seen Filo or Kytes anywhere?
    
    [End.]
    
    {After gaining the ability to travel to Roda Volcano, back at the airship
    bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: I'm not so sure Mydia really wants to start a war with Ivalice.
    
    Vaan: Oh yeah? How come?
    
    Penelo: Well, with Velis gone, maybe part of her anima's been restored. And if
    it has, maybe that part wants us to find a way to stop her.
    
    Vaan: We won't know for sure until we find her and talk to her.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: The Feol viera village must be where Mydia's from, right? Maybe we can
    find out something by talking to the people who knew her.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: I'm learning truths which shake the very foundations of my faith.
    Finding Mydia will do nothing to ease this, but still I feel I must.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: I'm glad Larsa liked that map we found!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: You think Larsa wants to be friends with us?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: That map was a real find. It should have us in good with the emperor,
    and there might even be treasure in it.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Back at the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Balthier.]
    
    Vaan: I thought the Cache of Glabados was just an ordinary treasure.
    
    Balthier: You should know there's no such thing as an ordinary treasure.
    
    Vaan: Hmph. It wouldn't have killed you to tell me!
    
    Balthier: But you are so blissful in your ignorance. Besides, it hasn't
    stopped you from making a fine captain.
    
    Vaan: Was that an insult or a compliment?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier again.]
    
    Balthier: The Cache of Glabados was the key to the Galbana. So the Galbana is
    in turn the key to the eternal. I haven't lost you again, have I?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran.]
    
    Fran: Roda Volcano is a harsh place. Neither tree nor grass finds purchase
    there. The Feol viera kept themselves far from hume and viera alike.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Vaan: Whatever happened with Fran? Weren't you up to something?
    
    Tomaj: A gentleman never kisses and tells.
    
    Vaan: Especially when there's nothing to tell.
    
    Tomaj: That does make it easier, doesn't it?
    
    Vaan: She was out of your league. You gotta be realistic about these things.
    
    Tomaj: What about Queen Ashe?
    
    [Vaan shrugs and shakes his head.]
    
    Vaan: I'd stick to keeping bar.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: A good streetear knows when to talk and when to listen. I think I've
    done enough talking for awhile.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe.]
    
    Ashe: Mydia would let her hatred grow to engulf us all.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch.]
    
    Basch: The Feol viera descend from this "god" of Lemures. Whatever he is, he
    cannot be a being like the Occuria.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa.]
    
    Larsa: Kytes and Filo have warmed up to me. Even if only a little.
    
    Vaan: It was a nice idea, giving you that map.
    
    Larsa: In truth, though I was happy for the information provided, I was
    happier still for the gesture. I'd like to return the favor.
    
    Vaan: Don't get too caught up worrying about it. They're your friends now, too.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa again.]
    
    Larsa: I wonder what secrets to the Judge of Wings's past wait for us in the
    village.
    
    [End talk.]

    Mission 8-3
    Fighting Back Tears
    Roda Volcano
    
    [The camera shows a large inside of a volcano, full of Yarhi, as the party
    enter from the southeast.]
    
    Basch: Roda Volcano. A mountain of death few would dare approach.
    
    [Vaan looks around.]
    
    Vaan: How can anybody live in a place like this?
    
    [Fran falls to her knees, everyone turns while Balthier comes to her aid.]
    
    Fran: The Mist...rages.
    
    [Vaan, Basch, Kytes and Llyud moves closer.]
    
    Fran: I'm- I'll be all right.
    
    [Fran gets up as Ashe moves ahead of the group.]
    
    Ashe: There's no turning back now. Let's get moving.
    
    Objective:
    Reach the top of the volcano!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party battles through the heat of the volcano to get to the top of the
    volcano. Bombs come out of no where in their hordes to attack the party, but
    are taken out. The party eventually reaches the top, Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are at the top of the volcano, looking at an
    entrance.
    
    Fran: We've arrived.
    
    [Everyone looks at the tree entry.]
    
    Balthier: The last stand of an exiled people.
    
    Penelo: Such a lonely-looking tree... It makes me sad.
    
    [Fran walks through the entrance.]
    
    Fran: Their torment must have been great to dwell in a place so unkind.
    
    [End scene.]

    - 8-4 Wayward Soul
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [Back at the world map, Roda Volcano has had its name changed.]
    
    You can now travel to The Feol Warren!
    
    The Feol Warren
    
    Village of the Exiled, a band of viera driven from the Wood. Tree roots wither
    from the heat of the molten rock below, and the houses built of this warped
    wood seem to wait eagerly for destruction's release.
    
    Wayward Soul
    
    The Exiled fled the Wood and settled among the crags and defiles of the
    volcano. Vaan and the others now watch as the Judge of Wings prepares to mete
    out justice to the viera of her former home.
    
    Mission 8-4
    Wayward Soul
    The Feol Warren
    
    [A lava waterfall flows as the camera moves to reveal dead Feol viera all over
    the place. At the top, Mydia attacks the last one standing, as she falls to
    the ground. The Judge of Wings starts laughing.]
    
    Vaan: Mydia, no!
    
    [Camera shows the party. Penelo is angry, Basch as his sword out and Vaan gets
    mad and calls out to her.]
    
    Vaan: What are you doing!?
    
    [The Judge of Wings gestures and all but the recently slain viera disappear.]
    
    Judge of Wings: I bring an end to our race.
    
    [She gestures to the final viera and she also disappears. Mydia continues
    laughing.]
    
    Penelo: Mydia...please!
    
    [The Judge of Wings holds her Cache high, as a great fire appears in front of
    her. Chaos appears in front of her, and she teleports away.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Chaos!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [The party battle their way through the volcano as they face Chaos. The party
    confronts him and are decimated by his Flare spells. Powerful as he is, the
    party fell him. As he is defeated, Kytes glows with a strange aura, as he
    jumps up and down.]
    
    Defeating Chaos has enabled Kytes to use the Nature's Wrath quickening!
    
    Nature's Wrath unleashes a series of powerful elemental magicks to devastate
    foes.
    
    [Back where the Feol viera where slain, the Judge of Wings teleports back in,
    gesturing towards the party.]
    
    Judge of Wings: What is life, weighed against the past I have lost?
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: But you've already found your anima, I'm sure of it! Look inside
    yourself. Don't you see Velis there? The man who loves you?
    
    Judge of Wings: ...
    
    Penelo: Velis wouldn't want any of this. You have to know that!
    
    [The Judge of Wings swings her sword.]
    
    Judge of Wings: Enough! My sorrow is my own!
    
    [She lifts up her Cache as if to summon something, then throws into the lava.
    An earthquake then follows, as Yarhi burst out of the lava. She turns back
    around, swinging her weapon.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Mydia!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [The Judge of Wings prepares a final stand against the party. As the party
    confronts her, her range of powerful attacks devastates the party. The party
    finally defeat the Judge of Wings, as her dark aura spreads all around her,
    the camera fades. Camera then fades back in to show the Judge's dark aura
    change her, as her armor disappears to reveal a viera girl. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are standing around the girl Mydia, who is to her
    knees. Filo is scared and Kytes is comforting her. Balthier turns to face
    Mydia and walks over to her.]
    
    Balthier: You let us win.
    
    [Penelo looks down as Vaan turns to Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: Why not run? And why throw away the Stone?
    
    [Mydia moves her head lower.]
    
    Mydia: I will not suffer him to use others as he has used me. In death my
    people are free. They will not know the sorrows I have.
    
    [Fran turns around and turns her head towards the lava.]
    
    Fran: You are a fool to think so.
    
    [Balthier turns and shakes his head.]
    
    Balthier: Fools being foolish, what more would you expect?
    
    [Balthier walks over to Fran, as Mydia has a strange aura emit from her. It
    rises up into the sky.]
    
    [Now seeing a scene from the past inside the Feol Warren, Mydia is sitting
    down near the lava edge, with an older viera near her. A child viera runs in
    on them.]
    
    Viera Child: Uh-oh! Looks like Mydia and her mother are fighting again...
    
    [The child walks off as am young Mydia gets up to talk with the other viera.
    She protests in anger.]
    
    Mydia: I don't like it here. Why can't we leave?
    
    Mydia's Mother: We will not be here forever. One day we will live among the
    clouds.
    
    [Mydia is confused as her mother walks closer to her.]
    
    Mydia's Mother: But until then, you cannot leave. None of us can. Do you
    understand?
    
    [Her mother walks over to her and shows her a book.]
    
    Mydia: What's that?
    
    Mydia's Mother: It is an ancient text of our people. Take it.
    
    [Mydia walks over and takes the book, then sits down and reads it. She flicks
    through the pages.]
    
    Mydia: The words make no sense.
    
    Mydia's Mother: When you are grown, you will understand.
    
    [Mydia nods her head, as her mother disappears. The place dims as Mydia from
    the modern time speaks.]
    
    But I did not heed my mother's request.
    
    I left our village- left my mother.
    
    The world beyond the village was a place filled with wonder I had not imagined.
    
    And then I met Velis, a man wonderful beyond imagining.
    
    [The scene changes to a setting in Rabanastre, showing the buildings all
    around and Velis in the south.]
    
    We first met in Rabanastre.
    
    There was a spot just outside Southgate where we would wait for each other.
    
    It was our spot.
    
    [Mydia walks into the scene.]
    
    Rabanastre was a grand city, with a thousand things to do and see.
    
    How nice, thought I, to someday walk its streets with my mother.
    
    To share these wonders with her.
    
    [Velis walks a few steps and Mydia walks over to him.]
    
    Mydia: Sorry I'm late. What's this big news you've to tell me?
    
    Velis: I made my decision. I'm going to join the Dalmascan army.
    
    [Mydia is surprised and walks closer to him.]
    
    Mydia: You would risk your life so that kings and emperors can play at their
    game of thrones? Why?
    
    [Velis nods.]
    
    Velis: So that you can live in a world free of tyranny and fear.
    
    [Mydia turns away and looks down.]
    
    Mydia: ...
    
    Velis: And when I'm back, you can take me to visit your family.
    
    [Mydia turns around.]
    
    Mydia: Oh, Velis...
    
    [Velis nods. Mydia walks to him, but he fades away as she walks to him. She
    sits down, sulking.]
    
    But Velis never came back.
    
    The war ended, and I waited.
    
    But he never came back.
    
    I was alone.
    
    [The scene brightens to now show Mydia at The Paramina Rift, outside the
    memorial area. She is sitting down, reading through the book her mother gave
    her.]
    
    Mydia: In ages now forgotten, our people were driven to live on islands in the
    sky.
    
    In my solitude, I thought of my mother, and soon remembered the book she'd
    given me.
    
    A fairy tale of my people- of the Feol viera.
    
    [She continues to flick through the pages.]
    
    Mydia: There dwells our patriarch, possessed of life eternal- Feolthanos. And
    from his back great wings spread to blot out the sun.
    
    [She continues to flick through the pages, as the area dims.]
    
    These words, though strange, came from my mother's book.
    
    Why should I not believe them?
    
    [Mydia gets up and starts walking very slowly, before paying her respects to
    the memorial. As she does, the scene brightens, now showing her in the hidden
    area of the Glabados Ruins. At the altar, a light is shining above it.]
    
    Standing there in the ruins, I felt our father's presence.
    
    A warmth that wrapped itself about me and filled me from within.
    
    I had found my true home.
    
    I knew he would accept me, save me, in spite of all I had done.
    
    I would share with him the love I could not share with my mother.
    
    And so I went in search of the sky.
    
    [The camera zooms in on her at the altar, as the scene brightens. Back in the
    present day, the aura is continuing to come from Mydia. Fran is by her side,
    Filo crying. Vaan walks over to her and comforts her.]
    
    Vaan: You felt alone. We can all relate to that. But what you did... How could
    you just give yourself over to him?
    
    [Penelo runs over to hug Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan!
    
    Mydia: I wanted to believe I wasn't alone. But he could not hear me. He had
    grown deaf to such pleas.
    
    [Llyud folds his arms.]
    
    Penelo: Deaf to love?
    
    [Vaan scratches his head.]
    
    Vaan: Feolthanos isn't one of the Occuria. What is he?
    
    [Mydia gets up to looks at Vaan, the aura still emitting from her.]
    
    Mydia: Feolthanos was the leader of the aegyl, once.
    
    [Both Vaan and Llyud are surprised, Vaan protests.]
    
    Vaan: Then why is he stealing their anima? Why is he trying to control them?
    
    Penelo: And how can he still be alive after all these years?
    
    [Mydia turns around.]
    
    Mydia: Feolthanos is bound by a magick that grants him eternal life. Free him
    from it. End his suffering.
    
    [She falls to her knees. Penelo and Fran with her. Vaan looks to Filo and
    Kytes, who seem ready. He then looks to Ashe, Basch and Balthier, who all
    agree. Vaan heads down to Mydia.]
    
    Vaan: You want us to kill him...
    
    Mydia: To live without one's anima is not truly to live.
    
    [Vaan gets up and nods.]
    
    Vaan: Okay. We'll do what we can.
    
    Mydia: Thank you.
    
    [She breaks the aura around her, and disappears in a flash. Fran shakes her
    head.]
    
    Fran: Her sins still bind her to this world.
    
    [Everyone looks down for a few moments. Vaan then shakes his head and runs
    over to the edge of the cliff.]
    
    Vaan: All of this is Feolthanos's fault.
    
    [Camera zooms in on Vaan, who is ready.]
    
    Vaan: We have to find him, and stop him once and for all!
    
    Penelo: But how?
    
    [Llyud realises something and announces it to everyone.]
    
    Llyud: Mydia's anima will guide us. It calls to us in the skies above Lemures.
    
    Fran: You sense it, too.
    
    [Llyud nods and puts his hand on his chest.]
    
    Llyud: Yes, it's...strange.
    
    [Vaan runs over and holds his sword above his head.]
    
    Vaan: Let's get going!
    
    [Everyone seems to agree. Chapter 8 Complete!]

    {Before starting Mission 8-4, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: What a sad place to live. I wonder if there's anything we can do to
    help them.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: In Lemures we have built temples in places no different than this. But
    we can fly, and the danger is small.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, the viera that live here aren't so lucky.
    
    Llyud: They are bound to the earth. Their suffering must be great.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: Sometimes it is a cruel thing that we should feel. The suffering of
    others becomes our own.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: Lemures is such a beautiful place... It doesn't seem fair that the Feol
    viera have to live in a volcano.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: I'm startin' to wonder if that map we found was a fake. Nobody could
    live in a place like that!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: You should see the look on your face. Is this village really all that
    bad off?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Head over to the sky saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: I've got a bad feeling about this. Let's talk later. The sooner we
    have this work behind us, the better.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran.]
    
    Fran: The Exiled are well named. None other could live in such a place.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe.]
    
    Ashe: The Feol viera village is near the top of the volcano. The Judge of
    Wings- answers wait for us there.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch.]
    
    Basch: The perils of the volcano would be a natural way to fend off the
    unwelcome. Ironic that the source of their umbrage should be so dangerous.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa.]
    
    Larsa: Roda Volcano sits in an inhospitable corner of Bervenia. Its visitors
    must be few. I had heard that no race would call such a place home. (sigh)

    air towards the northwest.]
    
    You can now travel to Eternity's March!
    
    Eternity's March
    
    Gateway to the Keep of Forgotten Time
    Path to the keep where Feolthanos hoards the anima he reaps. Guided by Mydia's
    anima, the Galbana is able to ascend the path.

    Gate before the Keep of Forgotten Time. Long ages have weathered the stone
    gate, but its glory is undiminished. The Mist drifting about the gate projects
    illusions of times long past.

    The party journeys to the Keep of Forgotten Time to honor Mydia's final wish
    and stop Feolthanos. But what awaits them at the gates of eternity?

    Keep of Forgotten Time
    
    [Aegyl are readying their weapons as the party enters the scene. Balthier,
    Vaan and Basch ready their weapons.]
    
    Vaan: A welcoming party?
    
    Llyud: Aegyl are forbidden from entering His keep.
    
    Fran: These are not aegyl. These are only memories, figments. Illusions of the
    past, made real by the Mist.
    
    Balthier: Their anima, as it were.
    
    [Fran nods.]
    
    Fran: Aegyl warriors whose true lives ended long ago.
    
    [Vaan turns.]
    
    Vaan: And Feolthanos is in here somewhere?

    Llyud: So...I must cross blades with the fathers of my race.
    
    Penelo: If you don't think you can-
    
    [Llyud flies in the air.]
    
    Llyud: No. This is my battle.
    
    [Filo flies up to Llyud.]
    
    Filo: Would it do any good to try talking?
    
    Fran: In them I sense only sorrow and remorse. We will find no welcome here.
    
    [Penelo runs up.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan? What now?
    
    [Vaan flicks his hair back.]
    
    Vaan: Now we fight. And with a little luck, we find some answers.
    
    [Everyone readies their weapons.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemy leaders!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, the female aegyl furthest to the east swings her
    weapon.]
    
    Time's Swordmaiden: From Ivalice you cast us out! Reap now wrath's harvest!
    
    [A male aegyl east of her swings his weapon.]
    
    Time's Warder: Know Feolthanos's hatred and despair!
    
    [Back to party, Commence!] {Note, different conversations happen with
    different party characters. This story will assume your party is made up of
    Penelo, Kytes, Llyud, Ashe and Basch. Others are in optional conversations.}
    
    [The party battles their way through to the aegyl. The party battles with the
    illusions, and eventually take them all out. When all of them are defeated,
    the place starts to shake, as the area fades out of colour.]
    
    Penelo: I feel time...slipping.
    
    [The places brightens as another aegyl appears, the place still shaking.]
    
    Time's Warder: So, you have crossed Time's gulf to do battle with us?
    
    [Another aegyl appears to the west of the other one.]
    
    Time's Knight: We will not stand by as you underworlders defile Lord
    Feolthanos's keep.
    
    [The party is back at the end, as the place stops shaking and colour returns
    to the area. The battle continues.]
    
    [The party battles their way through the same area once more. The area is
    slightly changed, as summoning gates have been placed in different areas. The
    aegyl, more aggressive this time, take the fight to the party. The party
    defeats them, and as they do, a light engulfs the area. The place continues to
    shake, as colour once again becomes devoid of the area. Another aegyl appears
    at the end, as the camera comes back to the party.]
    
    Kytes: More? (sigh)
    
    Llyud: What does Feolthanos want from us?
    
    [Basch swings his weapon.]
    
    Basch: There is only one way to free them from battle's grip.
    
    [Penelo gets psyched.]
    
    Penelo: We can't give in to his illusions!
    
    Ashe: Feolthanos! How long will you make them fight your battles for you?
    
    [Back to the end, an aegyl there stands ready.]
    
    Time's Knight: Humes from Ivalice visit sorrow upon our halls.
    
    [To the west, a female aegyl also stands.]
    
    Time's Man-at-arms: Have you not reveled in our suffering enough?
    
    [Colour returns to the area, the place stops shaking, as battle continues.]
    
    [The party battles through the area once more, as summoning gates' positions
    have again been changed. The party confront the aegyl and defeat them.]
    
    Time's Knight: Enough of this fighting. I will have it no more.
    
    Time's Man-at-arms: I tire of battle after endless battle.
    
    [A light engulfs the area. The place returns, again devoid of colour and
    shaking, as another aegyl appears at the end of the area once again.]
    
    Penelo: Something's wrong.
    
    Llyud: Their endless battles have brought them only sorrow.
    
    Basch: They do not wish to fight, yet they choose to all the same.
    
    [Penelo nods.]
    
    Penelo: None of us wants to fight, Feolthanos! Let this end!
    
    Ashe: When all is said and done, only sorrow can remain.
    
    [Slightly ahead of the party.]
    
    Time's Man-at-arms: Feolthanos has brought our history to a standstill.
    
    [To the northeast corner.]
    
    Time's Knight: At first we fought out of hatred of Ivalice. But we have been
    consumed by that hatred for so long that we no longer remember why it is we
    fight.
    
    [Time's Man-at-arms swings her weapon.]
    
    Time's Man-at-arms: Our battle stretched on through Time''s endless corridors.
    
    [Time's Knight swings his weapon.]
    
    Time's Knight: And all we have to show for an eternity of sorrow is sorrow
    itself.
    
    [Colour returns to the area, and the place stops shaking, as battle continues.]
    
    [Both sides, tired of fighting, continue in their struggle. The party battles
    and defeats the aegyl once more. After defeating all the aegyl, all Espers
    disappear from the room.]
    
    Kytes: I think the spell is breaking!
    
    [Basch looks down.]
    
    Basch: A past and future locked in battle...
    
    Ashe: Thousands of years of war... How horrible.
    
    [Penelo thinks to herself.]
    
    Penelo: What did Feolthanos hope to gain from all this?
    
    Llyud: Was this for our benefit? To show us how they have suffered?
    
    [Mission Complete]
    
    [After the battle, the party are at the end of the area, discussing. The
    camera moves over the area from a high overhead view.]
    
    Vaan: So where is he?
    
    Llyud: He must be further within the keep. Waiting...
    
    Kytes: What we just saw- that was Feolthanos showing us something from the
    past?
    
    Fran: I think not. Feolthanos has been gathering aegyl anima here for
    thousands of years. What we saw was no show. It's been going on all of this
    time.
    
    [Kytes jumps.]
    
    Kytes: So if he beats us, does that mean we have to fight here forever?
    
    [Filo jumps.]
    
    Filo: No way! Not me!
    
    [Penelo walks up.]
    
    Penelo: Maybe that's what he's been hoping for all along.
    
    [Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Why don't we ask him and remove all doubt?
    
    Vaan: Whatever he's planning, we're gonna put a stop to it. Let's go!
    
    [Everyone readies their weapons, end scene.]

    request.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: Even after all he did to her, Mydia would not turn from Feolthanos.

    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]

    {At the sky saloon, before going to Eternity's March.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo, scene starts.]
    
    Penelo: I was just thinking, Vaan. It's almost starfruit season down on Giza
    Plains.
    
    [Vaan thinks to himself.]
    
    Vaan: Already? That brings back memories... I still don't know how you managed
    to take perfectly good fruit and make it perfectly inedible.
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Your memory sure is good when you want it to be. In spite of that, I
    think I could really make some good dishes out of it now. We should go get
    some.
    
    Vaan: Sure, why not? Let's put it on the notice board before we forget.

    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: Looks like everybody lived up to their word.
    
    Vaan: Yeah, I think Kytes and Filo really learned a thing or two about sky
    pirating.
    
    Penelo: Not just them... I think I have, too. I really feel like I've changed
    a lot since we left Rabanastre.
    
    [Vaan nods.]
    
    Vaan: Yeah, you do seem to have grown up a little bit. It's about time.
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: Hey, I'm serious! Besides, if anyone still needs to grow up around
    here, it's you!
    
    Vaan: What are you talking about? I'm a master sky pirate!
    
    Penelo: Oh? Any secrets you'd like to share with me?
    
    Vaan: I'll tell you when we get back. You'll just have to wait till then!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo a third time.]
    
    Penelo: This is really it. Make sure you're ready before we go.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: What happened to Mydia got me thinking. It's scary not knowing anything
    about who you're fighting. But when you learn a little bit about them, you
    start to know why you're fighting in the first place.
    
    Vaan: Then you know why we have to fight Feolthanos.
    
    Kytes: Uh-huh. Before, I used to think about things too much, before anything
    even happened. But I'm not gonna let myself get worried about stuff anymore.
    I'm just gonna concentrate on what we have to do.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again, scene starts.]
    
    Kytes: Hey, Vaan. I was wondering if you had time to talk things over with me.
    
    Feolthanos and the Cache.
    Mydia.
    Not right now.
    
    [Choose Feolthanos.]
    
    Kytes: Thousands of years ago, Feolthanos used to be the leader of the aegyl.
    
    Vaan: That's right. That's when he married a viera and started a family.
    
    Kytes: But when the Occuria turned on the aegyl, they had to run away to the
    sky. Only the viera didn't have any wings, so he had to leave them behind.
    
    Vaan: He left the Cache of Glabados as a way for them to find him someday.
    
    Kytes: And that's why the airship brought us to Lemures!
    
    Kytes: Anything else you wanna talk about? [Back to options.]
    
    [Choose Mydia.]
    
    Kytes: Mydia lost Velis in the war against the Empire. She went looking for
    the Cache of Glabados, and that's how she met Feolthanos.
    
    Vaan: Then Feolthanos used Mydia to try and take revenge against Ivalice.
    
    Kytes: I guess even after all these years he still hasn't forgiven the Occuria
    for driving the aegyl away. That's why he turned Mydia into the Judge of Wings.
    
    Vaan: She got a lot more than she bargained for.
    
    Kytes: The only thing I still can't figure out is why Feolthanos was stealing
    everybody's anima. I doubt he would do it if he didn't have a reason.
    
    [Back to options. Choose not right now.]
    
    Kytes: Well, I'm ready to go when you are. Just say when!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: When this is all over and done with, I know exactly what I wanna do!
    
    Vaan: What's that?
    
    Filo: I'm gonna learn to fly all by myself! I wanna fly higher than anyone's
    ever flown before!
    
    Vaan: Then we better make sure we get back in one piece.
    
    [Filo nods.]
    
    Filo: You bet!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: Do you think Llyud would come with me? If I went flying somewhere, I
    mean.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: I have found many things on this journey. I have come to understand you.
    
    Vaan: You've changed a lot since we first met you. I gotta admit, I like you
    more this way.
    
    Llyud: I want to share this with all the aegyl. Surely Mydia would have wanted
    this.
    
    Vaan: Once we can put the fighting behind us, we'll have a fete with as many
    aegyl as we can find.
    
    Llyud: A fete?
    
    Vaan: You know, eating, drinking, singing. You'll love it, trust me.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: This airship can take us to places we cannot reach on wings alone.
    Whatever awaits us there, there is nothing we cannot overcome. Not even the
    gods.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj, scene starts.]
    
    Tomaj: Lord Larsa posted something for you on the notice board. Maybe you
    should give it a look.
    
    Vaan: What's got you interested?
    
    [Tomaj looks proud of himself.]
    
    Tomaj: This one has the smell of treasure on it. A streetear needs a good
    nose, too. I'd better start getting ready myself.
    
    Vaan: You're not coming with us, are you?
    
    Tomaj: Try not to sound so excited. But no, I'm not about to take to the
    battlefield now.
    
    Vaan: Then what do you mean you have to "get ready"?
    
    Tomaj: You'll see!
    
    [Now to store options, choose to talk.]
    
    Tomaj: I'm not sure how I feel about flying around in Feolthanos's ship.
    
    [Vaan nods.]
    
    Vaan: It should've been the Feol viera flying it, not us.
    
    [Tomaj thinks to himself.]
    
    Tomaj: You're right about that. Hmm...
    
    Vaan: Something on your mind?
    
    Tomaj: Just that all this time we've been flying on borrowed wings. I guess
    nothing's meant to last.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: For better or worse, it all comes down to this. I just want you to know
    I'll be with you to the end. Whatever you need, just ask. No detail too small,
    no debt too large!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: This must be the same airship that first brought Mydia to Lemures.
    
    Vaan: I guess it came to her after she found the Cache of Glabados, too.
    
    Balthier: It's unlike any ship I've seen in Ivalice, that much is for sure.
    The aegyl must have had shipyards of their own, once. Pity none of them
    survived.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier again.]
    
    Balthier: Is our leading man ready for the grand finale?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran.]
    
    Fran: What she showed you- you understood?
    
    Vaan: I think so. She finally got her anima back. Just before she died. She
    had a family that she loved. Just like we all do.
    
    Fran: The anima connects us with our past. Our memories.
    
    Vaan: And as long as we have that, there's hope.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran again.]
    
    Fran: Mydia's last wish. It is up to you to fulfill it.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe.]
    
    Ashe: Our true foe waits. There can be no doubt of our course.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch.]
    
    Basch: It's good to fight at your side again, Vaan. I will not leave it until
    this is finished.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa, scene starts.]
    
    Larsa: In thanks for the map, I had a shipment of supplies brought in from
    Archadia.
    
    [Vaan scratches his head.]
    
    Vaan: I told you you didn't have to do anything like that.
    
    Larsa: The others said as much.
    
    Vaan: Potions don't do much good against Espers.
    
    [Vaan looks laid back.]
    
    Larsa: Who said anything about potions?
    
    Vaan: Oh, was it hi-potions? I forget...
    
    Larsa: All sorts, actually.
    
    Vaan: Maybe give 'em to Tomaj. Then they'll be there for us whenever we need
    'em.
    
    Larsa: I'll see that he gets them.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa again.]
    
    Larsa: When the battle is over, we must part ways again. But I will always
    think of you as my friends.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith, scene starts. She looks down.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Hmm... Hrm... (sigh)
    
    Vaan: What is it this time?
    
    [Cu Sith shakes her head.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Hm? Oh, nothing you should worry yourself over. You
    should concern yourself with more important matters. Take that treasure
    business the little one was going on about.
    
    Vaan: You can't mean Filo or Kytes... Larsa?
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Yes, the little emperor! He posted something for
    you on the notice board.
    
    Vaan: I'll make sure to have a look.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Everyone seems to be making themselves useful. I
    only hope I'm doing my part...
    
    [Store options, choose to talk.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Master Tomaj is back to his old self. Or is he?
    He's going into the red with a smile, just to help you. I'm not sure that's
    like him at all...
    
    Vaan: He's had it kinda rough, keeping everything behind the scenes running
    smooth.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Master Tomaj would not have it any other way! Leave
    the ship to us. We'll leave the fighting to you!
    
    Vaan: All right. And keep an eye on Tomaj for me while you're at it, will ya?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Cu Sith again.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: The last battle is the most important battle! Don't
    let us down!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Nono, scene starts.]
    
    Nono: I've been watching your work, and I may have misjudged you. You're
    actually quite skilled, kupo!
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: I myself was...too hasty to dismiss you. There are
    many things you could teach even Master Tomaj.
    
    Nono: I'm glad we see eye to eye. Kupo? Kupo!
    
    Vaan: I'm not sure what happened here, but as long as you're getting along...
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Nono again.]
    
    Nono: This airship can climb to incredible heights, kupo! What are we waiting
    for?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with the Ninja sky pirate, scene starts in the middle of the sky saloon,
    with Vaan and all the aegyl and sky pirates in a circle.]
    
    Vaan: What's goin' on? Anything I should know about?
    
    Reckless Sky Pirate: You'll know soon enough, aye!
    
    Mountain Watch: We were talking with Bask, and we agreed we should thank you
    for all you've done for us.
    
    [Vaan shakes his head.]
    
    Vaan: Who's Bask? Y'know, I don't think I've ever heard any of your names
    before.
    
    [The moogle steps forward.]
    
    Land-bound Sky Pirate: Better late than never, kupo! I'm Sable. Bask is my
    partner.
    
    [The Seeq walks forward.]
    
    Lowland Sky Pirate: Y'can call me Vazz. And this here's my wife.
    
    [The viera steps forward.]
    
    Vaan: Your...wife. Got it.
    
    [They walk back as the ninja steps forward.]
    
    Wandering Sky Pirate: My name is teak. The aegyl to your left is-
    
    [He steps back.]
    
    Mountain Watch: Do not bother. I will introduce us. My name is Harna. The
    stoic fellow to my left is Terge.
    
    Terge: ...
    
    [A female aegyl speaks up.]
    
    Aegyl Survivor: And I am Minuit.
    
    [The final two aegyl fly in front of Vaan, one male, one female.]
    
    Troubled Aegyl: Fye. A pleasure.
    Aegyl Deserter: You may call me Ciett.
    
    [The two fly back, as Vaan looks around.]
    
    Vaan: I hope you're not expecting me to remember all this at once.
    
    [Vaan shakes his head as the Bask gestures.]
    
    Bask: Ha ha! Just wanted to thank you is all. Your lucky to get that much our
    of these aegyl. They're not exactly given to displays of emotion.
    
    Ciett: The battle you wage affects us all.
    
    [Minuit flies over.]
    
    Minuit: What you have done for Llyud I want for myself as well. To have my
    anima restored. To be whole.
    
    Teak: You stand apart from the aegyl and the other sky pirates. But you do not
    stand alone.
    
    Sable: Kupo!
    
    [Fye flies up.]
    
    Fye: This has become a second home to us.
    
    [Vazz snorts and gestures.]
    
    Vazz: That's the right of it. We'll be waiting here for you to get back!
    
    Vaan: Wow, I don't know what to say. Thanks, I guess. We'll try not to let you
    down!
    
    [End scene.]
    
    [Talk with Vazz.]
    
    Vazz: You don't believe me when I say she's my wife, do you? But it's all
    true, every word! Love knows no boundaries, that's what they say. If she and I
    are not proof of that, I don't know what is!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Vazz again.]
    
    Vazz: You'll be famous throughout all of Ivalice after this. If you make it
    back, that is. (chuckle)
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Vazz's wife.]
    
    Vazz's Wife: You can imagine my surprise finding my husband holed up with this
    rabble. I came to bring him home, but he insisted I stay here. What magick is
    this you've put on him?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Vazz's wife again.]
    
    Vazz's Wife: I am here because he wishes it. Do not think I like it. Finish
    this business, and let this fool fantasy he lives in end.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Harna.]
    
    Harna: We have not recovered so much of our anima as Llyud, but already there
    is a change. Some aegyl have yet to awaken to feelings beyond fear and hate.
    But give them time, and they will see that there is much more than this.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Harna again.]
    
    Harna: You are from the underworld, but you fight for us. The aegyl must come
    to appreciate what you have done.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Minuit.]
    
    Minuit: Soon you will challenge our god. Does that make me a heretic, too? We
    have come this far with you. It is much too late to turn back now.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Minuit again.]
    
    Minuit: Return safely, and we shall know your cause was just.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ciett.]
    
    Ciett: There was a time not so long ago when I would not have dreamt of
    challenging the gods. Now here I am with you, aboard your airship. I have
    changed much since coming here.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ciett again.]
    
    Ciett: I look forward to your return. I know that what you do is right.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fye.]
    
    Fye: I had thought you sky pirates capable of doing only harm, and I wished
    only harm for you. But no longer. My thoughts go with you in the struggle
    ahead.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fye again.]
    
    Fye: When you return, you will find us changed. For the better, I hope.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Teak.]
    
    Teak: I meant only to take shelter here for a short while. Now I've become a
    stowaway. What I mean to say is, you've made a place where we can all feel
    welcome.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Teak again.]
    
    Teak: You may not realize it, but Tomaj works very hard to ensure everything
    is in order.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Sable.]
    
    Sable: What's going to happen to the ship when you get back? It's so cozy
    here, kupo! I'm not sure I can bring myself to leave. I'll be here when you
    get back... I think we'll need to have a celebration. Yes, a fete, kupo!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Sable again.]
    
    Sable: I've taken charge of planning the fete myself. Don't be late... you're
    the guest of honor!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Terge.]
    
    Terge: Respect and admiration are things foreign to us. What can a god mean to
    us?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Terge again.]
    
    Terge: The aegyl here are different. Is this their anima I am sensing?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Bask.]
    
    Bask: I thought I'd be here just long enough to se my ship skyworthy again.
    Now look at me! The food is good, the company's better...I may never leave!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Bask again.]
    
    Bask: I'd best fill up on Penelo's cookin' while I can!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {After finishing Dalmascan Treasure, talk with Cu Sith, scene starts.}
    
    Vaan: Whoa, take a look at this place. You've really outdone yourself.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Not myself. Master Tomaj has outdone hisself!
    
    Vaan: I wouldn't have thought he'd loosen the death grip on his purse strings
    for something like that.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: But loosen it he did! I think he overheard me
    saying I didn't feel as useful as Nono, and that got him worried about me. I
    can't even worry without causing everyone trouble...
    
    Vaan: What are you talkin' about? You do a great job around here.
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Master Tomaj said much the same thing, just before
    he refitted the forge. Doing my least is the best I can do to thank him! Wait,
    that doesn't sound right...
    
    [Vaan nods.]
    
    Vaan: Just, uh, do your best.
    
    [Cu Sith also nods.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Your wish is my command!
    
    [Back to options, choose to leave.]
    
    {After finishing Just for Penelo, talk with Penelo. A scene starts as Vaan
    looks up, seeing a grand store where Penelo is.}
    
    Vaan: What in the world-
    
    Penelo: It's something, isn't it? I redid everything from top to bottom.
    
    [Vaan relaxes his hands behind his back.]
    
    Vaan: It's something, all right! Don't you think it's a little...much?
    
    Penelo: Remember the starfruit we picked? Larsa really took to them.
    
    Vaan: He must have, to buy enough to pay for all of this.
    
    [Penelo nods.]
    
    Penelo: The important thing is that he liked them.
    
    Vaan: I guess there's no denying your cooking is finally fit for a king. Well,
    an emperor, at least.
    
    [End scene.]
    
    {After finishing Restoring Honor, talk with Tomaj. A scene starts with Vaan
    looking up at a monstrous store in front of him.}
    
    Vaan: Quite a haul, Tomaj!
    
    [Tomaj crosses his arms.]
    
    Tomaj: I wish I could take all the credit, but the truth is, it's mostly
    thanks to that viera trinket.
    
    Vaan: You shouldn't be so modest.
    
    Tomaj: Maybe, maybe. Either way, it gives me the leverage to loosen my purse
    strings a little more. Starting today, I'm lowering the prices of all weapons
    and armor by an even ten percent!
    
    Vaan: I don't know what to say... Thanks, Tomaj!
    
    [Back to options, choose to leave.]
    
    {Head to the message board.}
    
    Escape Escapade
    
    Rikken's been found, alive and well! I' told his airship crashed in the Zwaua
    Rainwood. Go make sure he's all right!
    
    An Uninvited Invitation
    
    My sources tell me a band of brutish bangaa has been holed up in the Shadow of
    Paharo spoiling for a fight. Do I detect our dear friend Ba'Gamnan up to his
    old tricks? Only one way to find out.
    
    For a Moment's Peace
    
    Aegyl cross the Dalmasca Estersand, making for Rabanastre. Stop them before
    innocent blood is spilt.
    -Larsa
    
    Dalmascan Treasure
    
    I've received reports that a material of great value has ben uncovered in the
    Dalmasca Estersand. Time spent recovering it would no doubt be time well spent.
    -Larsa
    
    Just for Penelo
    
    It's starfruit season on Giza Plains! You bring me the starfruit, I'll cook
    you the feast!
    -Penelo
    
    Dance of the Dead
    
    Undead have been sighted in the Paramina Rift. A great scion leads their
    number. Our forces have proven no match, but I trust you will succeed where
    they have not.
    -Larsa
    
    Flames of Torment
    
    The aegyl muster their strength at Roda Volcano. They no doubt have designs on
    Ivalice. If we move now, we can prevent a wider conflict.
    -Larsa
    
    Restoring Honor
    
    Monsters have been sighted near the Feol viera village. That it is no longer

    -Larsa
    
    Darkening Clouds Gather
    
    Lord Larsa makes for good competition, but I don't think he can top this! A
    huge column of water has risen above Oghu, the Veiled Isle. If this isn't a
    sure sign of a scion, I don't know what is!
    
    {During the mission, depending on the characters you have in your party,
    different conversations are told.}
    
    [After defeating the first batch of aegyl.]
    
    Fran: Time's flow ebbs.
    
    [After defeating the second batch of aegyl.]
    
    [Vaan swings his weapon.]
    
    Vaan: If we can get 'em all, we can end this!
    
    Fran: It does not end yet.
    
    [Bathier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: This is really starting to be a bit much.
    
    Filo: Don't give up yet!
    
    [After defeating the third batch of aegyl.]
    
    Vaan: I think they've finally had enough.
    
    Fran: Battle's only fruit is sorrow.
    
    Balthier: I pray this is the last act of this tragedy.
    
    Filo: (pant) We're almost done...right?
    
    [After defeating all the aegyl.]
    
    [Fran falls to her knees.]
    
    Fran: It ends.
    
    [Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: I don't suppose anyone's up for an encore.
    
    [Filo gets back on her skybandit, looking tired.]
    
    Filo: Boy, am I glad that's finally over!
    
    [Vaan scratches his head.]
    
    Vaan: All this, but no Feolthanos.

    [Back at the world map, there is an entrance at the end of the area.]
    
    You can now travel to Keep of Forgotten Time!
    
    Keep of Forgotten Time
    
    Abode of Feolthanos, the Eternal, whence he rules the auraliths. The keep lies
    beyond reach of aegyl wings, the stolen anima of the aegyl thick on the wind.
    
    Creator of Darkness
    
    Vowing to free the fallen warriors who have stood watch at eternity's gate for
    countless eons, Vaan and his companions make for the seat of Feolthanos's
    power.
    
    Chapter 9-2
    Creator of Darkness
    Throne of Feolthanos
    
    [The camera shows a throne at the end of a room. As the party walks in, an
    aegyl with black wings appears sitting on the throne.]
    
    Llyud: Feolthanos?
    
    Vaan: That's Feolthanos?
    
    [A flash of light.]
    
    The darkness that haunts us began when we were driven from Ivalice.
    
    [Another flash of light, and Feolthanos stands up, and begins walking over
    towards the party, as the party heads over to him. Another flash of light.]
    
    We have fought amongst ourselves ever since.
    
    Now, trapped here for so long, we forget even why we fight.
    
    All that is left us is pain. And so we fight on.
    
    [Another flash of light, as Feolthanos walks through the party, the party
    making way for him. Slightly transparent, he starts glowing a strange aura,
    before changing into the Judge of Wings, and walks out. The party follows him.]
    
    [Back at the Gates of Shattered Time, the party enter from the north, as dead
    aegyl are scattered everywhere. The Judge of Wings finishes off the last of
    them, and throws them away from her.]
    
    Penelo: What...? No!
    
    [Back at the party, Penelo is to her knees, Vaan next to her. Ashe steps back
    and shakes her head.]
    
    Ashe: How terrible...
    
    [She too falls to her knees, before Basch comes to her from behind.]
    
    Basch: We cannot turn our backs on these horrors. That way lies only darkness.
    
    Vaan: Open your eyes, Penelo. It's gonna be okay.
    
    [Ashe gets up, followed by Penelo. Back to Feolthanos, he turns around.]
    
    Feolthanos: In the skies we saw freedom, and so we came here. But the skies
    soon became another prison. Sorrow begot sorrow.
    
    [A flash of light comes, as Feolthanos holds up a pink crystal.]
    
    Feolthanos: I take these shattered anima, and give unto them new life!
    
    [All the dead aegyl have energy seeping out of them. Then at once, all was
    absorbed and came back to Feolthanos. With that, Feolthanos summons espers to
    his side, and then finally Belias, the Gigas. Feolthanos, now raging with dark
    energy, turns his back on the party.]
    
    Feolthanos: I use these crystals to absorb them, end their suffering. Small
    recompense, perhaps, but what more can I offer?
    
    [Llyud looks up.]
    
    Llyud: We worshipped you as a god.
    
    [He shakes his head.]
    
    Llyud: You betrayed us.
    
    [Penelo looks down also, before Vaan gestures.]
    
    Vaan: You came here trying to help you people. But how does stealing their
    anima help anyone?
    
    [Feolthanos walks away, to the edge of the area, before finally turning
    around.]
    
    Feolthanos: Without anima they feel neither anger nor sorrow. They suffer not.
    The sky's promise of peace is fulfilled. A peace that spans the ages.
    
    [Vaan shakes his head.]
    
    Vaan: But you got it wrong! This isn't peace! You haven't solved anyone's
    problems! You've just run away from them!
    
    [Vaan readies his weapon, and the rest do the same.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Feolthanos!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After the battle, Llyud takes to the air, spear in hand.]
    
    Llyud: If I am a heretic to turn against Feolthanos, so be it! I will not rest
    until he lies slain before me!
    
    [Commence! The party battles back again at the Gates of Forgotten Time. The
    espers continue to come at the party. When the party fells Belias, light
    flashes continuously, as further south, Mateus, the Corrupt is summoned to the
    battle. As the battle continues, Mateus heads towards the party. As the party
    defeats Mateus, in her place, Chaos is summoned, and the battle continues. The
    party continues to battle through the area, and approach Feolthanos.
    Feolthanos, taking on the form of the Judge of Wings,punishes the party with
    incredible attacks, but is finally defeated. When Feolthanos falls to the
    ground, Llyud gets back on his feet, and looks down.]
    
    Llyud: Feolthanos, do you feel my anger? Do you feel my sorrow? If you are our
    god, then we have no more need of gods.
    
    [Mission Complete!]
    
    [Feolthanos is leaving the area and heading north, while the party pursues.
    Finally, he stops, as Vaan draws his weapon.]
    
    Vaan: Release the aegyl anima- now!
    
    [Feolthanos turns to the left, still not facing the party.]
    
    Feolthanos: Your empty plea is but another futile struggle. [He starts
    absorbing energy.] But I will have your anger and hatred gladly. [He holds up
    the pink crystal.] I will have your anima!
    
    [Feolthanos has an energy seep out of him, as he heads it towards Vaan. Llyud,
    realising what's about to happen, flies in to take the blow for him. He is
    raised into the air, as he is powerless to move, a light emitting from his as
    he shakes.]
    
    Penelo: Llyud!
    
    [Vaan runs over to Feolthanos.]
    
    Vaan: What have you done!?
    
    [The energy stops, and Llyud falls flat on the floor, the party gathering
    around him. Feolthanos turns his back on the party.]
    
    Feolthanos: The anima of the aegyl are long since bled dry. They are of no
    value.
    
    [Feolthanos walks out. Penelo tries to talk with Llyud.]
    
    Penelo: Llyud! Can you hear me?
    
    [Vaan turns around in the direction of Feolthanos.]
    
    Vaan: We're going to stop you.
    
    [Camera moves to show Feolthanos at the end of the area, almost inside the
    gateway.]
    
    Vaan: We're going to stop you and get Llyud back!
    
    [Feolthanos is surprised as a light engulfs him, the area shaking. Feolthanos
    seems affected.]
    
    Feolthanos: Traitor to your own...blood. The dead do not speak!
    
    [The area lightens up, as the camera zooms in fully on Feolthanos.]
    
    [Now in a black and white flashback, Feolthanos in his aegyl form and another
    aegyl are standing in The Glabados Ruins. They are in the hidden chamber, as
    they both look at the shining Cache of Glabados at the top of the pedestal.]
    
    Aegyl Attendant: You mean to leave this stone in Ivalice?
    
    Feolthanos: My wife and child cannot live among the islands of the sky. There
    is no more I can do for them.
    
    [The aegyl looks to Feolthanos.]
    
    Aegyl Attendant: I am sorry.
    
    [Feolthanos turns to the left and shakes his head.]
    
    Feolthanos: Don't be. It is as it must be.
    
    [Feolthanos walks closer to the stone.]
    
    Feolthanos: This...this is my anima.
    
    Aegyl Attendant: My lord?
    
    [The camera shows a frontal view of the Cache.]
    
    Feolthanos: I've etched my heart and anima into this auracite. It is a link
    between souls. A bond between me and my family.
    
    Aegyl Attendant: Then you leave it as a gift for them?
    
    [Feolthanos turns around.]
    
    Feolthanos: Not exactly. This anima is-
    
    [A light engulfs the area.]
    
    Ungrraahhhh!!!
    
    [Back in the present day, the shaking stops, as Feolthanos repositions
    himself, and laughs it off.]
    
    Feolthanos: What do you hope to accomplish? Do you want me to beg forgiveness
    for what I've done?
    
    [Feolthanos turns around and slashes his sword and reveals the rest of the
    party. Filo and Kytes are crying near Llyud, while Penelo is still by his
    side, Llyud still on the ground. Vaan, Ashe and Basch are watching Feolthanos.]
    
    Feolthanos: After all I've done for you? Endured your suffering to spare you?
    
    [A light comes from Feolthanos, and he disappears. Vaan, Balthier, Fran, Ashe
    and Basch run to where Feolthanos was. Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: What was that all about?
    
    [Fran shakes her head.]
    
    Fran: Another illusion in the Mist. His true form lies elsewhere.
    
    [Ashe turns towards Fran.]
    
    Ashe: This was all some trick?
    
    [The others turn towards her as well, as she shakes her head once more.]
    
    Fran: The memories we saw were true enough.
    
    [Basch turns around and walks closer towards Llyud.]
    
    Basch: Llyud was trying to reach him- even at peril of his anima.
    
    [Fran walks behind Basch.]
    
    Fran: A high price to pay.
    
    [Llyud gets to his knees, as Filo, Kytes and Penelo are surprised. The party
    walks closer towards him.]
    
    Filo: Llyud.
    
    [He gets up to his feet and faces the other direction.]
    
    Llyud: I'm all right.
    
    [Llyud turns around to face Penelo, Filo and Kytes.]
    
    Llyud: What's happened? Why do you cry?
    
    Penelo: Don't you know?
    
    [Kytes jumps.]
    
    Kytes: We were worried about you.
    
    [Llyud slowly walks forward, with everyone watching him.]
    
    Llyud: ...
    
    [Penelo realises and walks closer to him.]
    
    Penelo: Llyud, did he take your anima again?
    
    [Vaan walks right up to Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Then we'll just have to get it back again!
    
    [Vaan looks up.]
    
    Vaan: We promised we'd see this through to the end, right?
    
    [Everyone nods, end scene.]

    Penelo: Take the time you need to get ready. No sense rushing!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: We have warred among ourselves since Feolthanos reigned. Trapped in our
    prison among the clouds. The price of our current peace is to dear.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: I gotta save some energy for the fight.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: It's just been a little while for us, but Feolthanos has been fighting
    all these years. We've gotta find a way to stop him.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]

    Fran: A strange Mist filled the keep. Our fight is far from over.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe.]
    
    Ashe: Feolthanos is a slave to his own past. And the aegyl are made to suffer
    for this.
    
    [End talk.]

    Basch: They have fallen in battle, yet still they are made to fight.

    [Talk with Larsa.]
    
    Larsa: What Feolthanos has done cannot be forgiven. his intentions may have
    been good, but his methods...

    - 9-3 Fallacy
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Fallacy
    
    Llyud opened his heart and soul to the Eternal, only to be deceived and made
    hollow. Vaan knows there's only one way to restore Llyud's anima, and he must
    seize the chance.
    
    Chapter 9-3
    Fallacy
    Throne of Feolthanos
    
    [The camera shows a frontal view of the Throne of Feolthanos, as the party
    enter and look up at the throne. Balthier walks ahead of everyone.]
    
    Balthier: Won't do to keep a "god" waiting.
    
    [The camera fades out, before coming back and slowly moving around, fixed at
    the throne.]
    
    Ashe: In this throne he sat as he stole aegyl anima for all these years. What
    man could do this?
    
    [Vaan walks closer to the throne.]
    
    Fran: His humanity left him long ago.
    
    Filo: I'm scared.
    
    [Vaan turns around and swings his sword.]
    
    Vaan: C'mon.
    
    [Everyone walks into the room behind the throne, the camera to light.]
    
    [Giant crystals can be seen, before showing a giant image of Feolthanos,
    encased in three giant auracite crystals.]
    
    Basch: We bring him the end all false gods must meet.
    
    [Penelo steps backwards and shakes her head.]
    
    Penelo: There's no other way...is there?
    
    [Fran falls to her knees, Balthier and Filo coming to her.]
    
    Fran: The Mist...so heavy. Anger, sadness, fear, despair. The remnants of
    anima ride its currents.
    
    [Llyud walks forward slightly.]
    
    Llyud: The last auralith.
    
    [Vaan is surprised as it shows the giant image of Feolthanos.]
    
    Vaan: That!?
    
    Llyud: So long did he prey on our anima that he became a crystal himself.
    
    [Back to the party, Balthier walks forward slightly.]
    
    Balthier: How unbecoming.
    
    [Ashe walks forward.]
    
    Ashe: It comes!
    
    [From the image of Feolthanos, Espers are summoned.]

    Defeat all enemies!
    At least one ally must survive.

    [The party battle their way through the initial Yarhi. As the Yarhi protecting
    the auralith perish, more and more guardians are sent to protect the auralith,

    Penelo: I just can't believe it...
    
    Vaan: I don't see how Feolthanos could just turn Llyud away like that.

    The Unconscionable
    Feolthanos, the Last Auralith
    
    [The party stand around Feolthanos, the last auralith.]
    
    What you have seen is no work of mine.
    
    Our imprisonment in the skies, the curse of my immortal corpse- your gods of
    Ivalice did this.
    
    I claimed the anima of my people to seek revenge against these gods.
    
    Who are you to judge what I have done?
    
    [Vaan walks forward and swings his arm.]
    
    Vaan: We fought free of the same gods. But we did it ourselves!
    
    [Penelo walks forward.]
    
    Penelo: What the Occuria did to the aegyl was terrible. But it can't excuse
    this.
    
    [Penelo looks down while Kytes and Filo walk in front of her, Kytes jumping
    while getting angry.]
    
    Kytes: There's nothing that gives you the right to do what you did!
    
    [Filo gets angry.]
    
    Filo: And taking it out on us... that makes even less sense!
    
    [Ashe walks forward.]
    
    Ashe: No peace is worth the price your people were made to pay. Don't you see
    that you've only destroyed that which you sought to protect?
    
    [Basch also walks forward.]
    
    Basch: If our anima drive us to war, we must seek to master our anima.
    
    [Vaan points at Feolthanos.]
    
    Vaan: This world is what you made of it. Out of all the things you could have
    done, you let it come to this.
    
    [Penelo nods.]
    
    Penelo: But what you couldn't build alone, we can still build together! Llyud,
    the other aegyl...they can help you, if only you'll set them free.
    
    You are grown too proud.
    
    You are unworthy of the anima you possess.
    
    [Fran walks forward and shakes her head.]
    
    Fran: Not even Mydia, born of your own blood, believed this.
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: She came all this way to be with her father- to save you! Are you
    still too blind to see what she was trying to do?
    
    Mydia?
    The girl?
    
    [To everyone's surprise, he summons Mydia to himself. After a few seconds,
    lightning strikes her as she turns into the Judge of Wings. Vaan swings his
    arm.]
    
    Vaan: When are you going to learn that people's anima are more than toys for
    you to play with?
    
    Anima are fleeting things.
    
    Living, dead, it matters not.
    Easily taken, easily restored.
    
    [Mydia summons Yarhi to herself. Vaan pulls his weapon out.]
    
    Vaan: I've had enough of this!
    
    [Everyone else readies their weapons.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Mydia!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party battles through the Espers as they once again face the dangerous
    Judge of Wings. The party eventually confront her, and endure the piercing
    attacks she conjures up. After a tough struggle, the party defeats Mydia. Once
    she is defeated, she falls to the ground, as a strange light engulfs her. She
    then disappears, Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are gathered around Feolthanos. Vaan gets angry.]
    
    Vaan: Mydia wanted to free you from this eternity of suffering!
    
    What is this? An anima come from Ivalice?
    
    One I could not claim as my own?
    
    [Fran shakes her head.]
    
    Fran: The Mist teems with the remnants of anima.
    
    [Balthier walks forward and shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Small wonder, with the treatment their host has given them.
    
    Vaan: If you can still hate, if you can still dream of revenge, then your
    anima isn't lost!
    
    Penelo: It can never really be lost. You have to look within yourself to find
    it!
    
    If this is the end, then let my anima be consumed as well!
    
    [The camera zooms in on the statue, as the place starts to shake.]
    
    Llyud: Run!
    
    [The party quickly make for it. The camera fades. Chapter 9 Complete!]

    Time can now be travelled to.]
    
    You can now travel to Well of Whispered Oaths!
    
    Well of Whispered Oaths
    
    Dungeon prison of a scion once summoned by Feolthanos. Fearing its terrible
    might, Feolthanos sealed the beast within, where it remains even now.
    
    Waiting in the Wings
    
    All feeling burned to cinder in flames of hatred, the Eternal spreads his
    profane wings, becoming a great and terrible Yarhi. The curtain rises on the
    final act of his despotic reign.
    
    [The party are inside the throne room, gathered just before the throne.]
    
    Vaan: This is it. Everybody ready?
    
    [Everyone seems to agree.]
    
    Penelo: What about you, Vaan?
    
    I'm good to go!
    Almost. Just gimme a minute.
    
    [Choose I'm good to go!]
    
    Vaan: Let's get going! We'll finish this up and be back to the Galbana in time
    for supper!
    
    [Everyone agrees.]
    
    Penelo: All right!
    
    [Vaan walks to Llyud, and gives him a thumbs up.]
    
    Vaan: We're doing this for you, Llyud.
    
    Chapter 10
    Wings Eternal
    Keep of Forgotten Time
    
    [The party head to the entry behind the throne room. Vaan walks in, end scene.]

    Waiting in the Wings
    Womb of Feolthanos
    
    [From a summoning gate, Leviathan is summoned along with some other Yarhi. The
    party then enter from the south. The party then look around. Camera then shows
    a view of the area, which is a mysterious blue and magical.]
    
    Penelo: Where are we?
    
    Kytes: It kinda looks like the world where the Yarhi live. But something's
    different.
    
    [Back to the party, Fran walks up.]
    
    Fran: Feolthanos waits for Death's shadow to fall. There is a sadness on the
    Mist here.
    
    [Everyone turns to Fran. Vaan walks up to her, getting psyched.]
    
    Vaan: Maybe this place is some kind of reflection of Feolthanos's anima?
    
    [Ashe realises something as all turn to where she is looking.]
    
    Ashe: They come!
    
    [From the summoning gates, Raiden are being summoned constantly.]
    
    Vaan: We've gotta stop these summoning gates!
    
    [Back to the party, everyone readies their weapons.]
    
    Objective:
    Capture the summoning gates!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party battle their way through the mysterious area, in an attempt to stop
    the onslaught of yarhi. The party finally capture all of the summoning gates.]
    
    Basch: That's the last of the gates. Come.
    
    [Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, everyone is gathered around. Vaan nods, and the others
    agree with him, and they all run off. End scene.]

    - 10-1 Optional Conversations
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Before starting Mission 10-1, back at the airship bridge.}
    
    [Talk with Penelo.]
    
    Penelo: Mydia only wanted to help Feolthanos, and in return he used her.
    
    Vaan: I know he just wanted to keep his people from fighting, but he let
    things get out of control.
    
    Penelo: He lost sight of what's really important.
    
    Vaan: Mydia knew it, too. That's why she wanted us to help.
    
    Penelo: We have to keep fighting, Vaan. For Llyud and for Mydia.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Penelo again.]
    
    Penelo: We have to set Feolthanos free, Vaan. There's no one else left to do
    it.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud.]
    
    Llyud: ... Leave me alone.
    
    Vaan: You know it'll take more than that to keep me away.
    
    Llyud: ...
    
    Vaan: Once we've stopped Feolthanos, you'll appreciate it. Just you wait.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Llyud again.]
    
    Llyud: ... We must find Feolthanos. Quickly.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo.]
    
    Filo: I know what we have to do now. What I want more than anything I've ever
    wanted before.
    
    Vaan: What's that?
    
    Filo: I want to stop Feolthanos.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Filo again.]
    
    Filo: Together we can stop Feolthanos. Let's do it!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes.]
    
    Kytes: Feolthanos hasn't completely lost his anima. That's what you said,
    right, Vaan?
    
    Vaan: If he can still feel anger and hate, then he's not completely gone yet.
    
    Kytes: Then we just have to get him to remember that there's more to life than
    that.
    
    Vaan: He's fallen under the power of the eternal. If we release him, he'll
    probably die.
    
    Kytes: Yeah, but that's gotta be better than what he's going through now.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Kytes again.]
    
    Kytes: We've got work to do, Vaan. Time to get going!
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj.]
    
    Tomaj: Almost time to say good-bye to my airship. It's not gonna be easy...
    
    Vaan: Since when is this your airship?
    
    Tomaj: Who else's could it be? After all the blood, sweat, and tears I've
    poured into keeping her up and running...
    
    Vaan: I gotta admit, we couldn't have made it without you.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Tomaj again.]
    
    Tomaj: I've heard an intriguing rumor or two about some powerful Yarhi. You
    may want to give the notice board a once-over before you head out.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Head to the Sky Saloon.}
    
    [Talk with Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: I think we've seen the last of the smoke and mirrors. It all comes
    down to this.
    
    Vaan: I'm counting on you, Balthier.
    
    Balthier: Never underestimate the importance of the supporting cast.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Balthier again.]
    
    Balthier: They say to leave them wanting more, and I've had quite enough.
    Let's end this, shall we?
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran.]
    
    Fran: Were it not for this ship, you would never have been in a position to
    stop Feolthanos. Ironic, don't you agree.
    
    Vaan: I bet he didn't see that one coming.
    
    Fran: Perhaps. Though in the end it will still be through this ship that he
    finds salvation.
    
    Vaan: I guess you're right.
    
    Fran: That depends on you.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Fran again.]
    
    Fran: All Feolthanos's hopes lie with this ship. Even if he himself has
    forgotten.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe.]
    
    Ashe: Feolthanos may have sought revenge, but he also sought to keep his
    people safe...
    
    Vaan: You okay, Ashe?
    
    Ashe: The temptation of revenge is not easy to resist. I know that only too
    well. Feolthanos was consumed by this temptation.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Ashe again.]
    
    Ashe: We cannot stop to take rest now. It is time to end this once and for all.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch.]
    
    Basch: When we fail to protect what we must, it is easier to turn away and
    forget than face our failure.
    
    Vaan: If you've lost your anima- your soul- you'd think it would be easier.
    But it's not, is it?
    
    Basch: No. How can you know what to protect, if you can feel nothing?
    
    Vaan: That's a lesson I think it's time Feolthanos learned.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Basch again.]
    
    Basch: The hour is come. I know you are ready.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    [Talk with Larsa.]
    
    Larsa: The exile Feolthanos has known was of his own making. Surely now he
    would want it ended.
    
    [End talk.]
    
    {Head to the notice board.}
    
    Masterless Minions
    
    The Gates of Shattered Time are overrun with Yarhi. What's more, they seem to
    be appearing on their own, without anyone to summon them. Part of me feels
    sorry for them, but we can't stand by and do nothing.
    
    Wings of Midnight
    
    I spotted a scion while scouting the keep. Unfortunately, it also spotted me.
    I'm lucky I made it out with my life! If the Eternal's guardians are this
    powerful, I don't want to think what he must be capable of.
    
    Keeper of Precepts
    
    I discovered a sealed chamber in the keep. Whatever's trapped within must be
    incredibly powerful, perhaps even a scion greater than any we've yet
    encountered. If you decide to investigate further, exercise caution.
    
    Battle on the Big Bridge
    
    I've heard tell of a swordsman who steals the weapons of those he fights-
    something we can ill afford right now. He's said to be at the Gates of
    Shattered Time, if you're up for some swordplay.
    
    {Start 10-1, then when it's time to choose an option, choose Just gimme a
    minute.}
    
    Vaan: Sorry, there are a couple of things I need to do first.
    
    [End.]

    - 10-2 The Abyss
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [The party enters the area.]
    
    Chapter 10-2
    The Abyss
    Womb of Feolthanos
    
    [Ahead of them, aegyl anima are summoning Yarhi, in which an army of them
    heads right towards the party. Vaan swings his weapon.]
    
    Vaan: We're coming for you, Feolthanos!
    
    [Everyone readies their weapons.]
    
    Objective:
    Destroy the enemy soul crystal!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party battle through the enemies of the fallen aegyl. After a long
    battle, the party find the enemy soul crystal and destroy it, Mission
    Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, everyone is standing around, ready to continue. Everyone
    starts walking except for Vaan. Penelo is confused and notices, as everyone
    stops to look at Vaan. Basch walks closer to him.]
    
    Basch: It's time, Vaan.
    
    [Vaan realises and walks in the middle of everyone, addressing them.]
    
    Vaan: All right, everybody, listen up!
    
    [He scratches his head, then walks over to Filo, who is surprised.]
    
    Filo: Me? What?
    
    Vaan: Filo, I just want you to know how much having you along with us has kept
    everyone's spirits up.
    
    [He flicks his hair as Filo jumps.]
    
    Filo: Um, okay. Thanks, I guess!
    
    [He nods and walks over to Kytes, as Vaan shrugs.]
    
    Vaan: It's all right if you're scared, Kytes.
    
    [Kytes nods.]
    
    Kytes: Maybe I am...but just a little!
    
    [Vaan gives him a thumbs up.]
    
    Vaan: Don't worry, you're doing great.
    
    [Kytes gives it back.]
    
    Kytes: I won't let you down!
    
    [Vaan nods, as he turns around to walk to Balthier. As he approaches him,
    Balthier turns around and crosses his arms, Vaan scratching his head.]
    
    Vaan: Balthier, uh...thanks.
    
    Fran: What's all this?
    
    Balthier: I try not to ask questions I won't like the answer to.
    
    [Vaan nods and heads back into the middle, still facing Balthier.]
    
    Vaan: You don't have to be so difficult all the time, y'know.
    
    [Balthier turns back around.]
    
    Fran: Some questions are better left unanswered.
    
    [Penelo laughs and Balthier shrugs. Vaan then walks over to Ashe and Basch,
    and kneels.]
    
    Vaan: Ashe- Your Majesty. I won't let anything happen to you. I swear it.
    
    [Both Ashe and Basch turn their heads to each other.]
    
    Ashe: What's gotten into you?
    
    [Basch readies his weapon.]
    
    Basch: I fear we may have an impostor in our midst, Majesty.
    
    [Ashe turns her head back to Basch.]
    
    Ashe: Was that a joke, Basch? I fear we may have two impostors.
    
    [Vaan gets up, laughing.]
    
    Vaan: Everybody laughing, smiling. It's like old times again!
    
    [Ashe notices this.]
    
    Ashe: What a charming thought.
    
    [Vaan, Basch, Filo, Kytes and Penelo laugh. Vaan then heads over to Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Llyud, you'll be laughing with us soon enough. I promise.
    
    [Llyud turns away from Vaan, looks back at him, then straightens his head
    together.]
    
    Llyud: I will fight this battle as I have never fought before.
    
    [Vaan nods.]
    
    Vaan: Good enough for me!
    
    [The camera moves back around as Vaan heads back to the middle of everyone,
    flicking his hair.]
    
    Vaan: We made it this far together. We can make it a little further.
    
    [Penelo walks near him and also addresses them.]
    
    Penelo: That's right!
    
    [Everyone else agrees and walk off, as Vaan and Penelo also agree and walk
    off, end scene.]

    - The Final Battle - Revenant Wings
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [Camera shows the true form of Feolthanos. An incredible being of power, with
    three cores.]
    
    The Final Battle
    Revenant Wings
    Feolthanos Exultant
    
    [The party are teleported into the area as an army of Wing Wraiths are
    summoned to defend Feolthanos. The party all ready their weapons.]
    
    Vaan: We're not gonna stop until Llyud- until all the aegyl- are free!
    
    [Everyone readies themselves for battle, as the camera zooms out to show a
    view of the monstrous battle about to unfold.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Feolthanos!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Feolthanos readies his three main weapons.
    Commence!]
    
    [The party face off Feolthanos in his entirety, as Wing Wraiths pummel the
    party from all sides. The party heads for Feolthanos Dex, the right hand of
    the Eternal. Feolthanos Dex wreaks judgement upon the party, using his staff
    to electrify the entire party. The party confronts Feolthanos Dex and destroys
    him. Once destroyed, his crystal staff top shatters, and the summoning gate
    behind him ceases to work, as the battle continues. The party then confronts
    Feolthanos Sinis, whose powerful arm crushes the battlefield, knocking the
    entire party back and damaging everyone. The party obliterate Feolthanos
    Sinis, as it ceases to function, his crystal hand snapping, as the battle
    continues. The party head towards the head of the Eternal, Feolthanos Medi.
    The party approach him and start to destroy the last part of the eternal. As
    the party battles him, Bahamut, Lord of the Sky and Destroyer of the Skysea,
    is summoned to the Eternal, to do battle with the party. The party bests the
    giant scion, and continue their attack on the Eternal. Feolthanos Medi,
    readies an incredible attack, and fires a beam of unimaginable destruction,
    destroying all enemies in its wake. The party finally defeats Feolthanos Medi,
    and the Eternal is shaken, as scars start to glow as if to burst, the Eternal
    struggling all the while. the place lightens up.]
    
    [Now, back at a flashback in The Glabados Ruins, back in the hidden chamber,
    Feolthanos and his attendant are standing near the Cache.]
    
    Aegyl Attendant: Then you leave it as a gift for them?
    
    [Feolthanos turns around to face his attendant.]
    
    Feolthanos: Not exactly. This anima is the key that will give my family wings.
    One day, they will spread those wings, and find their way home to me.
    
    Aegyl Attendant: ...
    
    [Feolthanos shakes his head.]
    
    Feolthanos: A vain hope, perhaps. But a hope nevertheless.
    
    [He starts to leave as his attendant watches him.]
    
    Feolthanos: Someday they will come. Until then, I must wait. Even if I must
    wait for all eternity.
    
    [The place brightens up, as back in the present day, Vaan is in the middle of
    the Throne of Feolthanos. Lying on the floor, alone, he gets to his feet and
    looks around, and scratches his head.]
    
    Vaan: Is it over? [He looks around.] Where'd everybody go?
    
    [The place flashes.]
    
    Young sky pirate.
    
    [Vaan hears the voice coming from the throne, as Feolthanos appears, true to
    his aegyl form, and gets up from the seat.]
    
    Feolthanos: Warrior from the underworld who walks the skies.
    
    [Feolthanos takes to his wings.]
    
    Feolthanos: Take up your sword. Face me in my glory.
    
    [Vaan slashes his weapon, as Vaan and Feolthanos do battle. As the two battle,
    Vaan is overwhelmed by his power. Feolthanos slashes his sword.]
    
    Feolthanos: Yours is a weak anima.
    
    Vaan: Damn...
    
    [The two continue the battle, as Feolthanos overwhelms Vaan once more.]
    
    [Vaan is edging back, as Feolthanos moves closer. Vaan falls to his knees, and
    Feolthanos shakes his head. Feolthanos gets closer to Vaan, when suddenly,
    Filo and Kytes teleport into the room from behind. Both jump up and down.]
    
    Filo: Vaan!
    Kytes: We're here, Vaan!
    
    [Filo heads over to Feolthanos and strikes him with her sky bandit. She takes
    Vaan away from Feolthanos as Kytes runs forward and casts a barrage of spells,
    which didn't seem to have any affect on him, which surprises him. From behind,
    Llyud teleports in and readies his lance.]
    
    Llyud: You must pay for the years you've made us suffer, Feolthanos!
    
    [Llyud flies high into the air, and strikes down at Feolthanos, but is stopped
    bya powerful barrier around Feolthanos.]
    
    Feolthanos: Do you think you could better lead the aegyl?
    
    [Feolthanos forces Llyud away, showing Filo and Kytes defending Vaan behind
    him.]
    
    Llyud: What?
    
    [Feolthanos readies a spell as he flies up high over the party.]
    
    Feolthanos: You must give your anima to the heavens! Only then will you fly on
    wings undying!
    
    [Feolthanos readies a dark spell as Ashe teleports in from the side, ready to
    help.]
    
    Ashe: Vaan!
    
    [Ashe teleports the entire party away from a devastating Holy spell cast by
    Feolthanos. The party appears down the stairs of the area, as Feolthanos
    teleports behind them, surprising them. He walks closer to the party.]
    
    Feolthanos: Some suffering is too great to flee.
    
    [In front of everyone, Basch teleports in, as he parries Feolthanos's blows,
    before the two of them get locked in battle, the energy field back around
    Feolthanos. The rest of the party runs back up the stairs, away from the two.]
    
    Basch: The bond between friends can overcome any suffering!
    
    [The two bounce back off each other. Feolthanos then walks towards Basch,
    buffing himself up with incredible magic, before finally being overcome with
    dark energy as it pours out of him. Basch, overwhelmed, starts to edge back as
    Feolthanos continues to approach.]
    
    Feolthanos: The bond of friendship is but another illusion.
    
    [From behind, Balthier and Fran appear. Fran casts Gaze of the Void, to cancel
    and break all buffs upon Feolthanos. Basch walks back towards the two as Fran
    shakes her head.]
    
    Fran: An illusion that can pierce even suffering.
    
    [Balthier and Basch look at each other and nod, as Basch heads back to the
    others. Balthier shoots Feolthanos with a big blow, bringing him to his knees.
    Balthier tuns around and crosses his arms.]
    
    Balthier: Pleasant lies have a way of helping the best of us through hard
    times.
    
    [Balthier and Fran back towards the others, as Feolthanos gets up and shakes
    his head, before approaching the party.]
    
    Feolthanos: We each face death alone.
    
    [Feolthanos is getting closer to the party, who is ready in formation.]
    
    Feolthanos: Those you have known and trusted...they cannot help you then.
    
    [In the middle of everyone, Penelo appears and shakes her head.]
    
    Penelo: The people we've known shape who we are. They become a part of us that
    can never be taken away. [Penelo looks inside herself.] Anything that
    important...even if you lost it, it wouldn't be long before it turned up again.
    
    [She focuses herself and heals Vaan. He gets to his feet as Penelo nods.]
    
    Penelo: Vaan!
    
    [Vaan nods back, and walks towards Feolthanos, and holds his sword up high.]
    
    Vaan: It doesn't have to end like this!
    
    [He slashes his weapon, as Penelo runs closer to Vaan.]
    
    Vaan: Your anima can't be lost forever! Look inside yourself, and you'll see.
    We don't have to kill each other to stop this!
    
    [Llyud takes to the air, as the party battle it out with Feolthanos. The
    party, together, fight his incredible power. After a tough battle, Feolthanos
    is defeated.]
    
    [After the battle, the party edge closer to Feolthanos, as he falls to his
    knees, as a strange light engulfs him.]
    
    Feolthanos: Llyud. You must guide the aegyl. Our dream of the sky must never
    die.
    
    [Llyud looks up and Feolthanos gets to his feet and holds up a stone, in which
    Llyud is engulfed in the same light, and is floated into the air. After this,
    Llyud comes back down, and places his arm across his chest.]
    
    Llyud: You have left the mark of your dream upon us all.
    
    [Feolthanos walks over to Vaan.]
    
    Feolthanos: I owe thanks to you, as well. You helped me reach the end of my
    journey.
    
    [He walks back away from the party.]
    
    Feolthanos: You've shown me that there is ever hope in the skies.
    
    [Feolthanos breaks the spell as he takes to the air, and flies off, a trail of
    magick left behind him.]
    
    [Back to the party, Vaan flicks his hair.]
    
    Vaan: That's what I keep tellin' people.
    
    [Vaan shakes his head.]
    
    Vaan: It's what I like to think, anyway.
    
    [The party do a victory stance.]
    
    Final Chapter Complete!
    
    {In-game stats appear.}
    
    [After the battle, the area is shaking violently, as Vaan, Penelo, Filo, Kytes
    and Llyud run out of the Gates of Shattered Time. They stop to wait for the
    other four, and then continue on their way. All are surprised and stop in
    their tracks, when the Yarhi appear before them.]
    
    Vaan: What are they doing here?
    
    [Penelo looks down.]
    
    Penelo: Come to say good-bye?
    
    [The Yarhi cry many times.]
    
    Kytes: The anima Feolthanos collected... they're free now, aren't they?
    
    Filo: What's gonna happen to Lemures? And the Yarhi?
    
    [Llyud walks over to Filo.]
    
    Llyud: They will return to the way they were meant to be. And then...
    
    [Kytes looks down as Penelo turns around.]
    
    Penelo: Then?
    
    [Vaan notices and turns around.]
    
    Llyud: Then the aegyl must choose how to shape their future.
    
    [Ashe walks up to Llyud as Balthier walks forward slightly also.]
    
    Balthier: I'm afraid we've got to be off.
    
    [Ashe notices.]
    
    Ashe: Oh?
    
    [Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: I've learned it's best to accept one's place gracefully.
    
    [Ashe walks back to Basch as Nono comes bouncing towards the party, followed
    by Larsa.]
    
    Balthier: Vaan, we'll be waiting for you on the Strahl.
    
    [Basch walks forward and nods.]
    
    Basch: Her Majesty and I will be needing transport back to Ivalice.
    
    Vaan: No problem!
    
    [Larsa heads towards Ashe and Basch, who all agree, and take their leave. Nono
    heads over to Balthier and Fran as Fran moves forward slightly, while Tomaj
    heads towards Vaan.]
    
    Fran: Are you so sure?
    
    [Tomaj realises.]
    
    Tomaj: What about the Galbana?
    
    [Fran walks back as Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Isn't it time you returned her to her rightful owners?
    
    [Tomaj makes for it as Balthier and Fran leave also. Suddenly, the Yarhi cry
    as a strange aura comes from them, surprising all.]
    
    Penelo: Look!
    
    [The Yarhi continue crying as they disappear in a wonderful Mist.]
    
    Filo: They're disappearing!
    
    [The Yarhi continue to disappear, before finally are all gone, leaving behind
    a spectacular light show. Kytes turns to Llyud.]
    
    Kytes: Is Llyud okay?
    
    [Everyone turns to Llyud, as Llyud moves away from Filo and faces the party.]
    
    Llyud: The aegyl are no illusions. We do not vanish with the breaking of the
    dawn. But without the power of the auraliths, Lemures will fall. We must find
    a new home among the clouds.
    
    Vaan: I'm sorry.
    
    [Llyud looks down.]
    
    Llyud: It's all right. Feolthanos has given us back all we need to start anew.
    
    [He looks up.]
    
    Llyud: I owe it to you, my friends, to see that we do not squander this
    opportunity. The sky is broad, and the horizon wide. We will find our new home.
    
    [Filo runs up to Llyud.]
    
    Filo: Then I guess this is good-bye.
    
    [Llyud turns to Filo and looks down, as Filo and Kytes start crying. Penelo
    moves closer towards them.]
    
    Penelo: I know we should be happy, but...
    
    [Penelo lookds down, as Llyud turns around and shakes his head.]
    
    Llyud: You have your airships, and we our wings. There's no reason we should
    not meet again.
    
    [Kytes jumps.]
    
    Kytes: That's right!
    
    [Kytes runs over to Filo, who also jumps.]
    
    Filo: Right, Penelo?
    
    [Filo runs over to Penelo and whispers to her ear, with Penelo agreeing.]
    
    Penelo: Yeah. Yeah, that's right.
    
    [Everyone starts to watch Penelo as she begins to dance.]
    
    [Penelo starts dancing, with the logbook being written in at the bottom
    screen.]
    
    Vaan...do you think Llyud, Filo, and Kytes really learned what it means to be
    a sky pirate?
    
    [Filo and Kytes get into the dancing, as Vaan and Llyud are laughing.]
    
    The future can be a scary thing. Uncertainty always scares us.
    
    [Vaan and Llyud get into the dancing.]
    
    But we know that as long as there's a sky above our heads, there's hope.
    
    Whatever the future brings, all we really need is someone to face it with-
    together.
    
    [The party are frozen in frame.]
    
    Ship's Log, Final Entry
    -Penelo
    
    [The camera zooms out on the magical Gates of Shattered Time, before fading
    out.]
    
    [Movie. The Sky Continent of Lemures is crumbling away as the Strahl, along
    with the entire party and Nono are on top of it, looking on. The Galbana flies
    towards the crumbling Lemures, as Llyud flies behind it, turning around to
    wave back at the party, then flies off. Vaan and Penelo are waving back. Filo
    is to her knees crying, squeezing Nono as she does, as Kytes tries to comfort
    her; Tomaj just scratches his head. Ashe looks to Basch and nods, as he nods
    back, as the two of them look towards Balthier and Fran, who notice them
    looking back and gesture that it's time for them to go, as they walk towards
    inside the ship, Nono following behind. Ashe looks on and walks onwards.
    Penelo is crying as Vaan comforts her, while Filo cries on Kytes robes, with
    Kytes trying to get her off, with Tomaj slapping his hand on his head. The
    camera zooms out to show the entire party, as the Strahl flies off into a
    magical mist, the shape of the Galbana.]

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [It's night time in Southgate, Rabanastre. Penelo is waiting for someone to
    arrive, waiting in the same spot Mydia once did for Velis. She sighs, before
    noticing someone coming. She protests.]
    
    Penelo: It's about time you got here!
    
    [Vaan runs in, scratching his head.]
    
    Vaan: Sorry I'm late.
    
    [He walks up close to Penelo.]
    
    Vaan: You ready?
    
    [Vaan walks on, while Penelo looks back.]
    
    Penelo: Are you sure we should be doing this?
    
    [Vaan thinks about it and turns back.]
    
    Vaan: Of course I'm sure. C'mon, let's go.
    
    [They agree as Vaan and Penelo hold each other close and kiss. They start
    walking when espers are summoned in front of them.]
    
    Vaan: Where'd they come from!?
    
    Filo: Penelooo!
    Kytes: Wait up, Vaan!
    
    [They are surprised and turn back to see Kytes and Filo, with espers behind
    them as well, with Kytes holding up a piece of auracite.]
    
    Penelo: Kytes and Filo. Why am I not surprised?
    
    [Kytes starts laughing while Filo runs up and gets angry, Penelo walks over to
    her, Vaan looking down and depressed.]
    
    Filo: You didn't think we'd just let ya sneak off like that!
    
    [Kytes runs forward and jumps.]
    
    Kytes: We wanna go with you, too, Vaan!
    
    [Vaan scratches his head, as the espers cry out. Penelo turns to Vaan.]
    
    Penelo: Well, what do you think?
    
    Vaan: I think two's company, and four's a crowd.
    
    [He turns and flicks his hair.]
    Vaan: This adventure is for a sky pirate and his partner!
    
    [Vaan picks Penelo off her knees and runs off, knocking down an esper along
    the way. Filo and Kytes protest.]
    
    Filo: No fair!
    Kytes: Get back here!
    
    [Filo ad Kytes run after them. Kytes casts an ice spell towards Vaan, who
    narrowly dodges it. They try to make their way elsewhere, but more espers
    block their path. They continue chancing them. Back at the top of the
    southgate, Tomaj and Cu Sith have arrived.]
    
    Tomaj: Did someone call for a chaperone?
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Be quick, quick!
    
    [Tomaj and Cu Sith make after them as well. Vaan and Penelo continue running
    from the others, as they are frozen in frame.]

    - 46 Bug Hunt
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Bug Hunt
    
    Bugs. Lots of bugs. They're crawling all over the Bosco Pampa on the Windward
    Isles. Antlions, by the look of them. Get down there and squash them, Vaan.
    It's the only way to be sure.
    
    Bug Hunt
    The Bosco Pampa
    
    [Camera shows a horde of antlions and a sky pirate with them.]
    
    Kytes: Get a load of that!
    
    Quaddo, Verminlord: What are you looking at!?
    
    [Camera moves over to Vaan and party, Vaan looking angry.]
    
    Vaan: Why don't you tell us!
    
    Filo: Yeah, what's with all the bugs? Ick!
    
    [Camea moves back to Quaddo.]
    
    Quaddo, Verminlord: Silence, rapscallion! My summoning encountered a
    few...kinks. Now, be good little children and fed my pets for me! Hehehe...
    
    [The Antlions cry, camera moves back to Vaan and the rest, Vaan with his
    weapon out.]
    
    Vaan: We'll give 'em something to chew on!
    
    [The rest get their weapons out.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemies!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After preparations, the battle commences. The party meets the native Yarhi
    head on before rid the Bosco Pampa of its bug problem, as well as the Antlion
    Queen.]
    
    [After the battle, the party surrounds Quaddo, as Filo walks up to him.]
    
    Filo: Admit it! You're squashed, pest!
    
    Quaddo, Verminlord: You'll be singing a adder song when you encounter my next
    creation! But first, I must experiment! To the laboratory!
    
    [Quaddo surprises the party and runs off.]
    
    Kytes: Hey! Get back here!
    
    [Filo and Kytes start running after him, before Penelo starts talking and they
    stop.]
    
    Penelo: We could use some new Espers ourselves.
    
    Vaan: Bring on the bad guys, and the auracite will follow!
    
    [The party all agree, end scene.]

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Once Bitten, Twice Shy
    
    Already word of these sky pirates' wrongdoing reaches my ears. They beleaguer
    a group of aegyl at the Fane of Gucuma Qul on the Windward Isles. Best hurry
    while there's still time.
    
    Once Bitten, Twice Shy
    Fane of Gucuma Qul
    
    [Camera shows aegyl with Yarhi to protect them, as they have troops all over
    the entrance of the temple. Vaan and party enter the scene.]
    
    Aegyl: Come no closer.
    
    [Vaan is confused as the camera moves to show the female aegyl get her weapon.
    The camera moves back to the party.]
    
    Filo: We're on your side! We're here to help!
    
    Llyud: She won't stand down.
    
    Filo: But why fight? It doesn't make sense!
    
    Vaan: First we take the gate, then we'll talk some sense into her.
    
    [All turn towards Vaan and agree.]
    
    Objective:
    Capture the summoning gate!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After the battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party battle their way back up the entrance of the Fane of Gucuma Qul to
    retake the area and prevent more resistance from the aegyl. Once the party
    captures the entrance, Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, back at the bottom of the staircase, Llyud is walking back
    towards the party who is waiting there for him.]
    
    Llyud: She spoke of sky pirates who approached her with words of friendship.
    Once her guard was down, they wrought destruction on the shrine.
    
    Kytes: So she thought we were playing the same trick.
    
    Llyud: Not exactly.
    
    Kytes: What do you mean, Llyud?
    
    Llyud: She said it was unbecoming of an aegyl to consort with sky pirates of
    any sort.
    
    Filo: Does that make you an outcast or something?
    
    [Llyud turned away from the party.]
    
    Llyud: Perhaps.
    
    Vaan: It doesn't matter. Either way, you're still one of us!
    
    Llyud: One of...you.
    
    [Llyud turned back and everyone looked back at him, smiling, end scene.]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - 48 Maleficent Mayhem
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Maleficent Mayhem
    
    Monsters block the way to the auracite at the Fane of Gucuma Qul. From what I
    can tell, the sky pirates there are only making the situation worse. See that
    it doesn't grow more so.
    
    [The party walk back into the corridors of the Fane of Gucuma Qul. Kytes jumps]
    
    Kytes: There's Espers everywhere!
    
    Maleficent Mayhem
    Way to the Auracite
    
    [The camera shows the corridors of the place full of Yarhi everywhere.]
    
    Llyud: This cannot be. Yarhi unbound by a pact are forbidden to enter this
    place.
    
    [All turn towards Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Don't worry. We'll show them out.
    
    [The party gets ready for battle.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemies!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party make their way once again through the massive corridors on the way
    to the auracite chamber, and rid the place of the Yarhi. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle the party are outside the entrance to the auracite chamber,
    Llyud further ahead of the party.]
    
    Llyud: Who would let Yarhi roam here unbound to desecrate this hallowed place?
    
    Kytes: I'll bet it's those sky pirates!
    
    Filo: The nerve of those guys!
    
    [Llyud turns back around towards the party, Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: It's bad enough they're stealing the auracite, but this is going too
    far!
    
    Vaan: We'll just have to follow Tomaj's leads to get to the bottom of this.
    
    [The rest of the party turns towards Vaan.]
    
    Kytes: Tomaj's "leads"? I'm sure they'll take us to the bottom of something.
    
    [Vaan rubs his head, Filo and Kytes laugh, end scene.

    - 49 The Scofflaw
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Scofflaw
    
    I've located the sky pirate at the root of the trouble on the Windward Isles.
    He's hold up inside the Fane of Gucuma Qul itself. I worked hard tracking him
    down, so don't let my efforts go to waste.
    
    The Scofflaw
    Dais of the Auracite
    
    [Camera shows the big statue back at the Auracite Chamber, as it moves down to
    reveal a sky pirate and his healing Yarhi.]
    
    Kytes: Look, Vaan! It's that creepy bug-loving bangaa again.
    
    [The sky pirate turns around, camera moves to the entrance where Vaan and the
    party come into the scene.]
    
    Vaan: So you're the one behind this!
    
    [Back up to the sky pirate.]
    
    Quaddo, Verminlord: Well, if it isn't the pirate with a heart of gold! My ears
    bleed with tales of your do-gooding.
    
    [Camera moves back to the party, Vaan gesturing.]
    
    Vaan: Stick around here much longer, and it'll be more than just your ears.
    
    [Camera back up to the sky pirate.]
    
    Quaddo, Verminlord: Spare me the well-meaning threats, child! A true sky
    pirate pillages and plunders as he pleases!
    
    [Back to the party.]
    
    Filo: You've got it all wrong! Doesn't he, Vaan?
    
    Quaddo, Verminlord: Well, then, why don't we settle this dispute in true
    pirate fashion!
    
    [Vaan agrees and all draw their weapons.]
    
    Objectives:
    Defeat all enemies!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party once again battles their way through sky pirates up the massive
    stairway in the auracite chamber. The sky pirates, placed at strategic points
    in the battlefield, are overwhelmed by the party, and they confront and defeat
    Quaddo, Mission Complete]
    
    [After the battle, the party are at the top discussing.]
    
    Kytes: I always thought sky pirates were people who went looking for
    adventure. But I guess there are plenty of thieves who call themselves sky
    pirates, too.
    
    Llyud: I wonder if it is not you who are exceptions to the rule.
    
    Kytes: Nuh-uh! Tell him, Vaan!
    
    [Vaan walks over towards Kytes.]
    
    Vaan: There aren't any rules for being a sky pirate. It's about being free.
    
    Penelo: That's why there are good sky pirates and bad ones. It's just a
    question of which you want to be, Kytes.
    
    Kytes: I wanna be one of the good ones!
    
    Vaan: Then there's nothing to worry about.
    
    [Kytes turns around to Vaan, Filo jumps.]
    
    Filo: Just believe in yourself and the sky's the limit!
    
    Vaan: Er...right, something like that.
    
    [The camera moves away from the party, end scene.]

    Baubles and Banditry
    
    A band of ill-favored sky pirates on Tormelados is forcing aegyl to do their
    dirty work on the Kisne Rise. Teach them a lesson they won't soon forget.
    
    Baubles and Banditry
    The Kisne Rise
    
    [Camera shows some sky pirates towards the top of the Kisne Rise, one of them
    pacing up and down. The viera sky pirate then pulls out her weapon.]
    
    Altea, Aviator: Blast! What's taking those aegyl so long?
    
    Vaan: Hold it right there!
    
    [All of them turn around to see Vaan and the party, who are behind the tree
    near the safe spot.]
    
    Penelo: So you're the ones making the aegyl do your dirty work for you!
    
    FIlo: Who do you think you are!?
    
    [Camera goes back towards the sky pirates.]
    
    Altea, Aviator: What of it? A wise leader uses what resources are at hand.
    There is no shortages of aegyl here. Why not put them to some use? Or...is
    that a problem?
    
    Vaan: Yeah. A big one!
    
    [She pulls out her weapon.]
    
    Altea, Aviator: You'll soon learn the price of sticking your nose in our
    business!
    
    [The other sky pirates also pull out their weapons.]
    
    Objective:
    Destroy the enemy soul crystal!
    Your soul crystal must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party once again make their way to the top of the Kisne Rise, meeting
    wave after wave of sky pirates as the soul crystal brings them back to the
    field. Finally at the top, the party destroys the soul crystal, Mission
    Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are back at their soul crystal back at the safe
    point, Filo gets angry.]
    
    Filo: The nerve- enslaving people just to hoard treasure!
    
    [Vaan agreees but Llyud is confused.]
    
    Llyud: Do you not seek treasure as they did?
    
    Vaan: It's more than just the treasure. It's the thrill of exploring new
    places, the adventure!
    
    Llyud: I don't quite understand.
    
    Vaan: Just give it some time. You'll catch on before you know it!
    
    [Vaan gestures to Llyud as Filo and Kytes jump up and down, end scene.]

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Easier Said Than Done
    
    The aegyl that have taken shelter on the ship mentioned a cache of materials
    in the temple gardens on Tormelados. It's guarded by the usual nasties, but
    nothing you can't manage.
    
    Easier Said Than Done
    Fane of Tehp Qul
    
    [Camera shows party inside the temple grounds, towards the entrance of them.
    Kytes and Filo and in front of the party and are talk, and they seem to have
    come to a conclusion and are now facing the party.]
    
    Kytes: Sky pirates in search of hidden treasure!
    
    Filo: Sky pirates looking for adventure!
    
    Vaan: Sky pirates getting ambushed when they're not looking.
    
    [Filo and Kytes are surprised and turn around, when monsters have appeared,
    with the wolves growling and the drake streaming its earth power.]
    
    Kytes: Oops! Heh...
    
    [Camera moves to the north west corner, where there is a material spot.]
    
    Vaan: Don't worry. Just remember what we're here for. Race ya to the prize!
    
    Objective:
    Find the treasure!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party make their way once again through the temple grounds. Soon enough,
    a large group of minotaurs pursue the party as they attempt to reach the
    buried treasure. The group defeat the minotaurs to continue and finally dig up
    the hidden treasure. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Vaan, Filo and Kytes are around the area where they had
    finished digging for the treasure.]
    
    Kytes: So much for walking out without a fight...
    
    Vaan: If we got everything handed to us on a silver platter, where's the fun
    in that? Something worth having is worth fighting for.
    
    [Kytes turns towards Vaan, Filo seems to have a question.]
    
    Filo: Is that something you learned being a sky pirate?
    
    Vaan: Yeah, I guess I did. But it didn't happen overnight. It took a lot of
    hard work.
    
    [Filo and Kytes turn towards Penelo and Llyud, who are in the entrance to the
    temple nearby, Penelo looks at them in confusion.]
    
    Kytes: Hard work? Don't you mean supervision?
    
    [The camera goes back to the party, Vaan seems to realise something.]
    
    Vaan: Wait a second, what exactly are we talking about here?
    
    [Filo rides off on her skybandit.]
    
    Filo: What do you think?
    
    [Kytes also runs off, end scene.]

    The auralith chamber in the shrine on Tormelados teems with monsters. Hardly
    the proper respect for so sacred a place. I think a hunt is in order.
    
    Harmony in Discord
    Auralith's Cradle
    
    [Camera shows a large amount of monsters all over the auralith shrine in the
    Fane of Tehp Qul. The camera heads over to the party, where enemy espers are
    all over.]
    
    Filo: Where'd all these monsters come from?
    
    Kytes: Think it's those sky pirates again?
    
    Vaan: Your guess is as good as mine. Either way, we need to clean this mess up!
    
    [Party gets their weapons out.]
    
    Objective:
    Defeat all enemies!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party once again fights through the Yarhi of the cave, and defeat all
    enemies right into the deepest area of the cave. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Filo is looking all around the cave, and calls back to
    Vaan.]
    
    Filo: Vaan, I looked all over, but there's no one around.
    
    [The camera reveals the rest of the party, nearby.]
    
    Vaan: So those monsters just appeared out of thin air?
    
    [Filo walks over to rejoin the party.]
    
    Llyud: I think that's precisely what happened.
    
    [All turn to Llyud.]
    
    Penelo: How?
    
    Llyud: The auraliths govern the laws of nature in Lemures. Their destruction
    distorts those laws, which in turn gives rise to the unnatural.
    
    [The camera moves to reveal more of the crystals of the cave, still focused on
    the party.]
    
    Kytes: Unnatural?
    
    [Llyud turns to the party and nods.]
    
    Penelo: When you think about it, it's unnatural for us to even be here in
    Lemures...
    
    Vaan: Well, I'm just glad we got to meet Llyud.
    
    Filo: Me too!
    
    [Llyud looks at all of them, camera closing in.]
    
    Vaan: If it weren't for you, Llyud, we'd never have known anything about this
    place. But I guess you'd be happier if none of us sky pirates came here at
    all, huh?
    
    Llyud: I wouldn't say that...
    
    [The party all seem happy, end scene.]

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The Trodden Past
    
    Sky pirates have been raiding a ruin on Tormelados known to the aegyl as the
    Shadow of Paharo. It's a special place they've protected for centuries. It
    wouldn't do to let it fall to sky pirates now.
    
    The Trodden Past
    Shadow of Pahora
    
    [Sky pirates can be seen digging near a statue at the Shadow of Pahora. The
    white mage starts to talk.]
    
    Paula, Plunderer: What splendid pieces! I absolutely must have some. No, no,
    wait... I must have them all!
    
    [A scout has noticed company and the rest of the sky pirates turn, as Vaan and
    party can be seen towards the edge of the area.]
    
    Filo: What do you think you're doing! Those belong to the aegyl!
    
    [Camera moves back to the sky pirates.]
    
    Paula, Plunderer: Pearls before swine. Such relics are wasted in the hands of
    those barbarians.
    
    Llyud: Barbarians?
    
    [Camera moves back on party, Vaan getting angry.]
    
    Vaan: Who are you calling barbarians?
    
    Paula, Plunderer: You make a companion of an aegyl? You've poor taste in
    friends, boy.
    
    [Vaan gets his weapon out.]

    Kytes: Llyud, don't let what she said bother you.
    
    [Filo walks up to Llyud, Llyud has his head down.]
    
    Filo: Not everybody from Ivalice is like that, really!
    
    [Llyud turns back around.]
    
    Llyud: I have come to know that you are different from the others.
    
    Vaan: But there are lots more like us. If you don't believe me, you should
    come see for yourself!
    
    Llyud: ...
    
    [Vaan runs up to Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Then it's settled! We're taking you to Ivalice! Trust me, you'll have a
    great time.
    
    [Vaan gestures to Llyud, Filo and Kytes jump up and down. End scene.]

    move towards it, showing a tree with red fruits growing out of it.]
    
    Vaan: That looks like what we came here for.
    
    Filo: I'll go get 'em!
    
    [Back to the party, Filo gets on her board.]
    
    Penelo: You don't have to do that, Filo.

    [After the battle, back on the beach, the party have gathered and are talking.]
    
    Penelo: Great job, Filo! As a reward, how about I whip up something special,
    just for you?
    
    [Filo jumps.]
    
    Filo: Do you really mean it?
    
    Kytes: I think that was Penelo's plan all along.
    
    [Penelo snaps at Kytes.]
    
    Penelo: Kytes! It was supposed to be a secret.
    
    [Vaan walks over to Filo, whispering in her ear.]
    
    Vaan: If you ask me, Penelo's cooking is better off staying secret.
    
    Filo: You may have a point there...
    
    Vaan: Let me know if you need me to take this bullet for you, Filo.
    
    [Filo jumps up and down.]
    
    Filo: No, no. I brought the foodstuffs back, I should be the one to suffer.
    
    [Penelo hears the conversation, and gets angry, camera shaking slightly.]
    
    Penelo: Is my cooking that bad?

    [After the battle, at the top of the area, the party watches the entrance to
    further in, as Filo runs over towards it.]
    
    Filo: After all that, not even a simple thank you?
    
    Penelo: I can't say I blame them. Think of all they've been through at the
    hands of sky pirates.
    
    Vaan: Besides, we didn't help them just so they'd be grateful. We did it
    because it was the right thing to do.
    
    [Filo runs back to the party.]
    
    Filo: But-
    
    Penelo: The aegyl will thanks us one day. All right, Filo?
    
    Filo: I know, but-
    
    [Llyud flies over to Filo.]
    
    Llyud: Is my gratitude not enough? What more can I do?
    
    [Filo is surprised and jumps, then shakes her head.]
    
    Filo: No, no, no! It's not you, Llyud! We already know how thankful you are!

    the Dais.]
    
    Filo: Vaan, are you sure we're looking in the right place? The bill on the
    notice board sounded suspicious to me.
    
    [Vaan walks up and looks around, before finding something and pointing towards
    it.]
    
    Vaan: Oh? What about that?
    
    [The camera moves to show a red material spot, which sets itself on fire.]
    
    Llyud: Everburn, I believe. It is a rare ore. I have heard much of it, but
    never have I seen it firsthand.
    
    Kytes: Then this must be our lucky day!
    
    [Camera moves back to the party.]

    and Kytes are jumping up and down.]
    
    Filo: We got what we came for! I'd say we did pretty well for ourselves.
    
    Tomaj: Wow, you found it!? I can't  believe it was actually there!
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: Master Tomaj! I would never lie to you!
    
    [The party hears the two coming as they enter the scene.]
    
    Vaan: What's going on, Tomaj?
    
    Tomaj: You might say I heard about this ore from..unconventional sources. You
    might also say that source was Cu Sith. She said she knew where to find just
    the right materials to help with your crafting.
    
    Vaan: You could've been more upfront about it.
    
    Kytes: What do you expect? It's Tomaj.
    
    Filo: Yeah!
    
    [Tomaj notices and ponders, Filo and Kytes laughing, before returning back to
    the group. Cu Sith walks over to Vaan.

    angry...
    
    [Filo realises something and whispers to Kytes.]
    
    Filo: Kinda like Penelo!
    
    [Vaan and Penelo turn around.]
    
    Penelo: What was that?
    
    [Both Filo and Kytes jump up and run.]

    [Camera moves back to the Leviathan, who is still thrashing about.]
    
    Filo: I don't think he liked being woken up.
    
    [Leviathan thrashes again.]
    
    Penelo: His home was destroyed. I doubt that put him in a good mood.

    [The camera starts to zoom in.]
    
    Vaan: I'm sorry about how I've been acting lately.
    
    [Penelo turns to Vaan, and walks up to him.]
    
    Penelo: It's not your fault. I'm not even sure what it is myself. hen I talk
    to Velis, it's like talking to someone I've known all my life.
    
    [Penelo looks down.]
    
    Penelo: Maybe he reminded me of my brothers.
    
    Vaan: Sorry. I didn't know.

    Kytes: I dunno. Maybe it's a present for someone.
    
    [Filo is confused.]

    [Filo jumps up and down.]
    
    Filo: Did I just hear what I think I heard?

    weapon.
    
    [Both Kytes and Filo get to their knees.]
    
    Kytes: A weapon?
    
    [Cu Sith walks up.]

    Filo: I don't get it. There was only one in the turtle.
    
    Kytes: How'd it get there in the first place?

    thrust his blade deep into its shell.

    distance, which ends up being eggs, guarded by Tiamat and more Yarhi.]
    
    Kytes: You're gonna have to wait a little longer. I think these monsters want
    to make a meal of us!
    
    Vaan: Nothing comes between a sky pirate and his dinner. Tonight we earn our
    meal.
    
    [Back to the party, Penelo turns to Balthier.]
    
    Penelo: I know this isn't exactly what you signed up for, Balthier...
    
    Balthier: Better I lend a hand and it be done with quickly, so we can attend
    to more pressing matters.
    
    [Vaan laughs, Filo and Kytes jump up and down.]
    
    Objective:
    Gather the foodstuffs!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party makes their way through the narrow area towards the top, where
    Tiamat guards the Cockatrice Eggs. The party fells Tiamat, and collects their
    reward. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Balthier and Fran walk back south towards Penelo. Penelo
    walks over to them.]
    
    Penelo: Sorry you had to go through all this because of me.
    
    [Balthier shrugs, while Fran turns to Penelo.]
    
    Fran: Do not apologize. You ought not dismiss the value of such errands.
    
    Balthier: I daresay Vaan regards these errands more highly than most.
    
    [Penelo agrees.]
    
    Penelo: He does have trouble keeping his priorities straight.
    
    [Penelo laughs.]
    
    Balthier: Best be on your way. It won't do to keep a crew of hungry sky
    pirates.
    
    Penelo: Right. Thanks, Balthier.
    
    [Penelo runs off. Balthier reloads his gun, and holds it high in the air, end
    scene.]

    [Camera shows a view near the entrance to the Fane. An aegyl is outside it,
    with a material node near her.]
    
    Aegyl Sentinel: Underworld marauders! You would pillage all that which is ours
    until nothing remains.
    
    [Camera moves to the party. Filo shakes her head.]
    
    Filo: You've got it all wrong!
    
    [Llyud steps forward in front of the party.]

    wings. Judgement is nigh!

    [After battle preparations, Commence!]

    that inhabit it. Approaching the materials, they best the Yarhi Ramuh, and
    scavenge the treasure. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are nearby the ground entrance to the fane. Filo
    looks down.]
    
    Filo: Was this the right thing to do? I feel like we stole it from them...
    
    Penelo: From the aegyl's point of view, we're no better than the rest of the
    sky pirates.
    
    [Balthier turns towards the rest of the party.]
    
    Balthier: Has the lure of wealth and riches proven too great?
    
    [Vaan turns to Balthier.]
    
    Vaan: No! That's not why we're here.
    
    [Vaan looks down.]
    
    Balthier: Then you've no reason to hang your head.
    
    [Vaan looks back up at Balthier.]
    
    Balthier: You can't go about worrying what others think of you- better to give
    up sky pirating altogether.
    
    [Vaan agrees.]
    
    Vaan: Then I guess we just better make sure we keep doing what needs to be
    done.
    
    [Balthier and Fran walk away, Vaan looks to the rest of the party and nods.

    a team. The aegyl power up at the sight of the party. Vaan runs up towards the
    cliff area, and readies his weapon.]
    
    Vaan: Aegyl fighting alongside sky pirates? Now I've seen everything.
    
    [The camera moves over to the enemy aegyl.]
    
    Llyud: You ally yourself with the very menace you seek to repel?
    
    [The aegyl swings her weapon.]
    
    Melwe the Capricious: They fight alongside us. Loyalty bought in auracite- no
    different than Yarhi.
    
    [Nearby pirate swings his sword.]
    
    Sellsword Sky Pirate: That's the way of it. Now it's time to earn our keep!

    [After the battle, the party stand near where the auralith used to stand. Vaan
    is looking at the party. After scratching his head, he speaks.]
    
    Vaan: If you ask me, the aegyl and the sky pirates are all out of their minds.
    Is auracite really worth turning against their own?
    
    Kytes: They seemed happy enough just stealing it up to now. Why the change of
    heart?
    
    Fran: They lose that which the aegyl have begun to regain- their anima.
    
    [Filo and Kytes are surprised and face Fran.]
    
    Llyud: Whatever the cause, a bitter war looms before us.
    
    Balthier: The game is the same- only the stakes have changed.
    
    Vaan: Yeah. We've got to save everybody from themselves.

    accordingly, end scene.]

    [With a great crash, Shemhazai, the Whisperer appears before the party, the
    place lighting up and shaking.]
    
    Vaan: Shemhazai? Here?
    
    [Llyud looks down.]
    
    Llyud: Perhaps the aegyl's newfound rage has drawn him forth.
    
    [Balthier walks forward.]
    
    Balthier: Rage he seems intent on directing at us.
    
    Objective:

    Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party is slightly west of where the auralith used to
    stand.]
    
    Llyud: The scion's wrath- it is the rage in the world incarnate.
    
    Fran: As rage spreads through the sky continent, more such scions will stir.
    
    Vaan: We can't let that happen.
    
    [Balthier turns back around towards the party.]
    
    Balthier: I couldn't agree more. The fewer complications, the better.
    
    Llyud: Complications?
    
    [Vaan runs over to Llyud.]
    
    Vaan: Don't listen to him, Llyud. Balthier likes to crack wise.
    
    [Balthier turns around and shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Someone has to be the foil to our leading man.
    
    [Fran turns to Balthier, as a strange light envelops him.]
    
    Defeating Shemhazai, the Whisperer has enabled Balthier to use the Element of
    Treachery quickening!

    [The party are at Gugoza Falls, looking at the waterfall, camera at a sky high
    view. The camera then zooms in.]
    
    Filo: I've never seen a shooting star before. It sounds like it must be
    beautiful.
    
    [Kytes notices something and runs up.]
    
    Kytes: See for yourself!
    
    [A shining star falls slowly towards the ground at the end of Gugoza Falls.
    Suddenly, it transforms into Exodus, the Judge-Sal.]
    
    Vaan: That's no star, it's Exodus!
    
    [Back to the party.]
    
    Fran: His is the power of destruction. Where fall his stars, death follows.
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: We can't let him destroy the island! We have to stop him!
    
    [Fran readies her bow.]
    
    Fran: He comes!
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Exodus!

    [After the battle, the party gather at the top of the falls, next to the
    waterfall.]
    
    Filo: So much for seeing shooting stars.
    
    Vaan: Better luck next time.
    
    [Filo gets angry. Fran turns to the two.]
    
    Fran: I share your disappointment. The stars hold much beauty.
    
    [Filo is surprised and turns around.]
    
    Filo: You like looking at the stars, too?
    
    Fran: I do. Though the heavens are best viewed from the sky.
    
    Balthier: I'm afraid that will have to wait until the Strahl is out of repairs.
    
    [Filo jumps.]
    
    Filo: You could always watch from the Galbana!
    
    [Fran walks over to Balthier, Filo looks confused.]
    
    Filo: Or not?
    
    Kytes: I don't think it would be the same.
    
    [A strange light engulfs Fran, as the camera zooms in.]
    
    Defeating Exodus, the Judge-Sal has enabled Fran to use the Gaze of the Void
    quickening!
    
    Gaze of the Void fires a barrage of arrows that removes all enemy buffs.

    [Rikken and his party are standing around, waiting, as the party, led by Vaan,
    go up to meet them.]
    
    Vaan: Rikken, you made it!
    
    [Rikken spins around.]
    
    Rikken: Don't look so surprised. I'd sooner be dead than die a death such as
    that.
    
    [Vaan puts his hand on his head, then nods.]
    
    Vaan: Right... Well, good to see you anyway.
    
    [Raz jumps up and down.]
    
    Raz: The isle cracked and crumbled. It were a very near thing, but we made
    good our escape.
    
    [Elza walks back.]
    
    Elza: We did right by ourselves, if not by our ship. She was tossed about like
    so much flotsam in a storm. She made it this far, but no farther.
    
    Vaan: You're welcome on our ship- always room for more.
    
    [Raz jumps up and down again.]
    
    Raz: Needn't worry 'bout that. She'll be on her feet again in no time.
    
    [Rikken nods and moves back with Elza.]
    
    Rikken: No, the ship's the least of our troubles.
    
    [The three of them gather and get ready for battle.]
    
    Rikken: We face the foulest foe a fellow's ever faced- boredom! An affliction
    only battle can cure!
    
    [Elza runs forward and shoots her pistol.]
    
    Rikken: A struggle of blood and sweat!
    
    [Raz casts Holy near the party, Rikken with his sword up.]
    
    Rikken: A contest of will and wit!
    
    [Vaan is confused as the three ready positions.]
    
    Vaan: A contest?
    
    Rikken: A contest!
    
    [Rikken dashes forward and slashes at Vaan, Vaan surprised and just jumping
    out of the way.]
    
    Rikken: And we'll settle this like true pirates: fisticuffs, no summoning!
    
    [Rikken walks back as Vaan protests.]
    
    Vaan: You call that a fist?
    
    [Rikken slashes his weapon, before readying it.]
    
    Rikken: Not the sharpest tool in the shed, are you? No matter. On with the
    fight!
    
    [Vaan is still confused.]
    
    Vaan: If a fight'll end this conversation, you've got it!
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Rikken, Elza, and Raz!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After choosing a party of three and no summons, Commence!]
    
    [The party of three take on Rikken's group as well as the natural wildlife.
    After a while, the three of them join up and gang up on the party, but the
    party prevails. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Penelo, Filo and Kytes are together, while Vaan and Llyud
    are talking with Rikken's group.]
    
    Rikken: Well done, Vaan! I knew you had it in you.
    
    Elza: Your sparring fee comes to three hundred thousand gil.
    
    [Vaan is surprised, as Raz protests.]
    
    Raz: No welshing!
    
    [Vaan gets incredibly angry.]
    
    Vaan: You expect me to pay you for that?
    
    Elza: If you don't have it on you, we can wait.
    
    [Vaan looks down.]
    
    Vaan: That's hardly the problem.
    
    Raz: There's word abroad you've your hands full with some foul menace.
    
    [Vaan is confused as Rikken spins around.]
    
    Rikken: I'm nothing if not reasonable. You can worry about settling your debt
    once you're done with that. But I'll chase you through both underworlds if I
    have to, so don't get any ideas!
    
    [Vaan nods.]
    
    Vaan: I don't know what to say...
    
    [Rikken spins again.]
    
    Rikken: Just remember, I'll chase you through both underworlds if I have to,
    so don't get any ideas!
    
    Vaan: I heard you the first time.
    
    [The group clusters together, all with their weapons out.]
    
    Rikken: Then all is settled! Next we meet, we'll finish discussing your
    payment. Who knows, maybe we can go another round.

    giving them thumbs up.]

    gang are waiting for them. Ba'Gamnan swings his weapon.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: You've more spine than I'd have credited you, Balthier!
    
    [Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Save your credit. I'm only passing through.
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Bah! One for all and all for one again, is it? How it moves me,
    seeing you all back together.
    
    Vaan: We don't turn on each other like a pack of rabid dogs.
    
    Rinok: Rabid dogs, are we now?
    
    [Bwagi jumps up and down.]
    
    Bwagi: Balthier's trained his pet well, aye. Knows well enough not to bite the
    hand that feeds.
    
    [Vaan looks down.]
    
    Vaan: I'm not anybody's "pet"!
    
    [Balthier turns around and shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Don't waste your breath, Vaan. There's only one language they
    understand.
    
    [Balthier walks back with Fran as Ba'Gamnan starts dancing with his weapon.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: We'll see how the worms feed on your wit. Time to silence master
    and apprentice for good and all!
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Ba'Gamnan and his crew!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party and Balthier face off against Ba'Gamnan once more. Ba'Gamnan has
    learned many new skills, but is outmatched by the party. Once the four of them
    have been defeated, Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Bwagi, Rinok and Gijuk are on the ground. Ba'Gamnan looks
    weak, as Vaan and Balthier walk towards them.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Incompetent buffoons! Fall back!
    
    [The three of them get up.]
    
    Gijuk: An all-too-familiar ending.
    
    [A flash comes as Ba'Gamnan jumps up and down in anger.]
    
    Ba'Gamnan: Retreat is not surrender! You've not seen the last of us, Balthier!
    
    [Ba'Gamnan runs away, with the other three jumping before following. Vaan
    calls after them.]
    
    Vaan: Get back here!
    
    [Balthier turns to Vaan and shakes his head.]
    
    Balthier: They're harmless enough with their tails turned like that.
    
    Vaan: So we just let 'em go?
    
    [Balthier looks up.]
    
    Balthier: Miss them already? Don't worry, they'll be back.
    
    [Fran and Penelo walk over.]
    
    Fran: You are troubled.
    
    Vaan: Since when am I Balthier's apprentice?
    
    [Balthier shrugs.]
    
    Balthier: Not the first time I've heard that joke. I'm still not laughing.
    
    [Fran walks over to Balthier and looks at Vaan.]
    
    Fran: Perhaps it is no joke?

    [A female aegyl flies closer.]
    
    Quint: I would ask the same of you. What claim do humes have on this land?
    
    Ashe: No more than you, perhaps. I cannot deny the wrongs Ivalice has done you.
    
    Quint: Then atone for the sins of your world!
    
    [Camera zooms in as she readies her weapon. Back to the party, Ashe walks
    over, towards the cliff face.]

    towards the edge of the cliff.]
    
    Llyud: He spoke of atonement.
    
    [Llyud thinks as Basch moves forward.]
    
    Basch: His must be a common view held by the aegyl. What of you?
    
    [Llyud shakes his head.]
    
    Llyud: I do not agree with his actions, though I understand his motives.
    
    [Ashe steps forward.]
    
    Ashe: Revenge begets revenge. It is the fool's path. We must accept the past,
    or there can be no way forward.

    Vaan: Hard to believe I let something like this slip past me all this time.
    
    [Basch nods.]
    
    Basch: It is often the things nearest us that escape our notice. With distance
    you gain perspective.

    they dug up the new materials. Kytes looks back towards the other 4.]

    Vaan: They wouldn't ask us to fight on an empty stomach. Would you, Basch?
    
    [Kytes turns around as Basch steps forward. Penelo and Filo turn around also.]
    
    Basch: Of course not. An army marches on its stomach. Unless you mean for us
    to go hungry?
    
    [Kytes jumps.]
    
    Kytes: N-N-No! Of course you can have some!
    
    [Vaan turns back around.]
    
    Vaan: See, told you. Now, on to business.
    
    [The party readies their weapons.]

    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [After battle preparations, Commence!]
    
    [The party battle their way through an unusually large amount of Yarhi. As the
    party edges closer to the starfruit tree, a horde of Lv 99 Golems are
    protecting the tree. As a large struggle against the almost impenetrable Golem
    army continues, the party in the midst defeat them and take home the
    starfruit. Mission Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, the party are standing near the tree.]
    
    Filo: Here it is, just like you asked, Penelo!
    
    [Penelo nods.]
    
    Penelo: Thanks. It's not everyday we've got guests like Ashe and Larsa to
    feed. A special occasion like this demands an equally special feast!
    
    [Vaan folds his arms.]
    
    Vaan: Well, the timing couldn't be better, now that you've finally learned how
    to cook!
    
    [Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: What's that supposed to mean?
    
    [Vaan, Filo and Kytes laugh, as Basch takes a step forward.]
    
    Basch: It means I'll be saving my appetite.
    
    [Ashe nods.]
    
    Ashe: Yes. I look forward to it.
    
    [Penelo laughs.]
    
    Penelo: You won't be disappointed! I've got just the thing!

    The Paramina Rift
    
    [A snowy Paramina Rift is shown as the Vaan, Penelo, Filo, Kytes and Basch
    enter from the southwest.]
    
    Vaan: There's the culprit!
    
    [Ahead of them is an army of Zombies. In the middle of them, dark energy
    spurts forth as Zalera, the Death Seraph, rises up from the pack.]
    
    Penelo: All these tormented souls, lost in the war...
    
    [Back to the party, Basch readies his weapon.]
    
    Basch: I shall put them to rest. As many times as need be.
    
    Objective:
    Defeat Zalera!
    At least one ally must survive.
    
    [The rest of the party readies their weapons, battle preparations.]
    
    [The party battle Zalera in what feels like an eternal struggle. Zombies
    appear incredibly fast at a neverending rate, as the party slowly moves
    forward. After an incredibly long battle with the Zombies, the party finally
    confront Zalera. After a hard battle, the party finally defeats Zalera,
    Mission Complete!]
    
    [After the battle, the party is leaving the area. Kytes suddenly stops and
    looks down, and Basch, confused, heads over to him.]
    
    Basch: What's the matter?
    
    Kytes: You fought at Nalbina...right?
    
    [Basch nods.]
    
    Kytes: Do you think what you did was right?
    
    [Basch shakes his head.]
    
    Basch: If I am to suffer for my deeds, so be it. Whether the dead will it is
    not for me to say. We can but honor their memory.
    
    [Basch turns around.]
    
    Basch: Their rage was not their own. Returning them to their slumber was a
    mercy.
    
    [Basch starts to walk away as Kytes looks down.]
    
    Kytes: I see why they all call you a hero. [Basch stops.]
    
    [Basch turns around.]
    
    Bacsh: I am a servant of the empire, now. Dalmasca must find new heroes.
    
    [Basch walks away as a strange light emits from him.]
    
    Defeating Zalera, the Death Seraph has enabled Basch to use the Apocalypse
    Shield quickening!
    
    Apocalypse Shield nullifies attacks against all allies, rendering them
    impervious to harm.

    us, but no more!
    
    [Penelo runs up and shakes her head.]
    
    Penelo: Stop this! you must have felt your anima return. Don't you see that
    what you're doing is wrong?
    
    Faltz, Skyseer: You speak of anima. Mean you our anger? Our sorrow? Our grief
    without end? These we gladly sacrifice!
    
    [Faltz buffs up and swings his weapon. Penelo gets angry.]
    
    Penelo: No!
    
    [The party readies their weapons.]
    
    Objective:
    Destroy the enemy soul crystal!
    Your soul crystal must survive.
    
    [The party makes their way up the volcano once more, as the aegyl are their
    yarhi cross the lava to meet the party. After a tough struggle, the party
    breaks through the aegyls' defenses, and destroys their soul crystal. Mission
    Complete.]
    
    [After the battle, Penelo, Fran and Ashe are together, in one of the volcano's
    pathways. Penelo is looking down, with the other two behind them.]
    
    Penelo: They finally get their anima back, but for what?
    
    [Fran walks closer to her.]
    
    Fran: For many it is easier to turn from their pain than to welcome it into
    their hearts. Not all are of your strength.
    
    [Penelo turns around.]
    
    Penelo: I don't feel very strong... I've just been lucky to have friends with
    me who make the rough times easier to handle.
    
    [Ashe nods.]
    
    Ashe: Our friends are our strength. That's why I believe there is hope for the
    aegyl. They will learn.
    
    [Penelo looks down.]
    
    Penelo: Do you think they can?
    
    Fran: I would ask that of you.
    
    [Penelo straightens herself up, Ashe walks up to her.]
    
    Ashe: We have much work ahead of us.
    
    [Penelo nods.]

    south. Fran shakes her head.]
    
    Fran: The Mist here is frozen.
    
    [Vaan, Penelo and Kytes turn to her.]
    
    Kytes: How could anything be frozen in a place this hot?
    
    [Fran nods.]
    
    Fran: A great tragedy has chilled it.
    
    [A monster sound can be heard as Balthier walks forward slightly.]
    
    Balthier: Hopefully not ours.
    
    [Balthier points his gun forward as the rest of them turn around to see an
    army of bombs and King Bomb in the middle of them. King Bomb intimidates the
    party.]
    
    Vaan: Let's get out of here before we find out!
    
    Objective:

    Bomb and his army of bombs. After a tough and dangerous battle, the King Bomb
    has been felled. Mission Complete!]
    
    [After the battle, a noise of a treasure chest opening can be heard, as Vaan,
    Penelo, Balthier and Fran are around in a circle, thinking. Kytes and Filo run
    up to them.]
    
    Kytes: I've never seen anything like this before! What do you think it is?
    
    [All but Balthier run over to him, as he shows a green crystal.]
    
    Fran: Sorrow...no, sympathy. Mydia mourns.
    
    [Fran looks down.]
    
    Fran: This treasure is their dying wish.
    
    [Vaan takes the treasure as Balthier walks up to the rest of them.
    
    Balthier: And who's going to grant it?
    
    [Penelo and Vaan look at Balthier.]
    
    Tomaj: Who else?
    
    [Vaan, Penelo, Filo and Kytes are surprised as Tomaj and Cu Sith walk over to
    them. Vaan is taken aback.]
    
    Vaan: Tomaj? What are you doing here?
    
    [Tomaj shrugs.]
    
    Tomaj: Just paying my respects to the would-have-been passengers of the
    Galbana. It's the least I can do as the ship's current steward.
    
    [Penelo nods.]
    
    Penelo: Surprising thoughtful of you.
    
    [Vaan protests.]
    
    Vaan: But since when is it your ship?
    
    [Tomaj walks over to Vaan.]
    
    Tomaj: This is neither the time nor the place. The important thing is that you
    hand that treasure over to me.
    
    [Vaan holds out the shiny item, while Kytes gestures.]
    
    Kytes: But this is special...
    
    [Tomaj snatches the item from Vaan, taking him by surprise.]
    
    Tomaj: Of course it is. So special that we can't afford not to use it.
    Treasure's not worth very much if you just leave it lying around.
    
    [Tomaj turns to Cu Sith, who seems ready.]
    
    Cu Sith, Master Artificer: It is as Master Tomaj said. The viera will rest
    more easily if the ship is well cared for!
    
    [Cu Sith nods, while everyone is surprised.]
    
    Vaan: Tomaj, how did you-
    
    [Tomaj runs over swiftly to Cu Sith.]
    
    Tomaj: Long story- I'd rather not go into it. At any rate, come by the shops
    when you have the chance and I'll have a treat in store for you.

    [Famfrit faces the party.]

    [After the battle, Ashe and Basch are together towards the top area of the
    Veiled Isle. Both are looking out towards the running river.]
    
    Ashe: Lemures is not so very different from Ivalice.
    
    Basch: As you say, Majesty. They do not rely on technology as we do, but they
    are no less rich.
    
    [Ashe looks down.]
    
    Ashe: And yet they attack us.
    
    [Basch shakes his head.]
    
    Basch: I do not believe they want this war. Who could want for such a thing...
    
    [Ashe straightens her head again.]
    
    Ashe: You haven't changed, have you, Basch. And what of me?
    
    Basch: You have fulfilled your promise and more, Majesty. You share the wants
    of your people, and so your people want for nothing.
    
    [She turns to Basch and nods.]
    
    Ashe: I could ask for no praise higher than yours, Basch.
    
    [A strange light envelops Ashe.]

    problem.
    
    [Ashe turns towards Balthier.]
    
    Ashe: Feolthanos has bound them to this fate.

    The Sky Continent of Lemures - Obtained after Mission 2-1
    
    History - Common term for a heretofore uncharted archipelago of purvama
    floating high above Ivalice. Separated from the outside world by a great
    barrier of Mist, its people retain a unique culture born of many years of
    isolation. The only mention of Lemures is in sky pirate legends and folklore.
    
    Lore - Whilst studying the effects of the Mist release in Draklor's great
    experiment these days past, a curious piece of news came to me by way of a sky
    pirate. He tells me a new continent has been discovered. This warrants further
    investigation.

    History - The winged race which inhabits Lemures. With the notable exception
    of said wings, they are otherwise much like humes in appearance, though they
    are much shorter lived-a mere forty years. The aegyl shun conflict, and are in
    fact slow to show emotion of any sort.
    
    Lore - On the Aegyl
    These dwellers of the lost sky continent are singular among races for their
    short span of life and unexcitable nature. We shall endeavor to unlock their
    secrets.

    archipelago, its mild climate and lush vegetation make for an idyllic home to
    a great many aegyl.
    
    Lore - We made landfall on the Windward Isles. The sight that met us defies
    the logic of those who have ever dwelt upon Ivalice-green fields dropping and
    giving way to endless sky. And everywhere, the aegyl and their magnificent
    temples.

    Yarhi - Obtained after Mission 2-3
    
    History - The magickal beasts of Lemures. They do not perish when felled in
    battle, but merely return to their own world, where they wait to be called
    again. For this reason, the aegyl refer to them as the swords of the Eternal.
    
    Lore - It is my seventh day in Lemures. Already I find myself accustomed to
    fending off the Yarhi - the vulgar word for the beasts of this land. They much
    resemble those of Ivalice, but they lack substance, fading to nothing when
    slain.
    -An Antiquarian's Musings
    
    Summoning Gates - Obtained after Mission 2-4
    
    History - To battle the many wild and unbound Yarhi they encountered, the
    ancient aegyl harnessed the Yarhi themselves. They called forth these Yarhi
    using sacred stones known as auracite. The portals through which they enter
    our world are the summoning gates, doorways to the World of Illusion.
    
    Lore - Lift up auracite and offer prayer. To the faithful shall I send armies
    of Yarhi that will pour forth as a great flood to drown their enemies.
    -The Canon, Book of Calling, Canto III
    
    Auracite - Obtained after Mission 2-4
    
    History - A variety of magicite - a substance with which the reader is no
    doubt familiar-peculiar to Lemures. Auracite is but a small fragment of the
    much larger auraliths, of which there are three. These feature prominently in
    the lore and history of Lemures.
    
    Lore - three auraliths have I set upon this land. Protect them and the Stones
    they bear. For all auracite is born of the auraliths, and it is through these
    Stones I grant my power unto you.
    -The Canon, Book of Stones, Canto XII
    
    Feolthanos the Eternal - Obtained after Mission 2-4
    
    History - God of the aegyl, said to have let them to Lemures and then used the
    power of the auraliths to erect the great barrier that has stood for so many
    thousands of years. The aegyl believe he watches over them even now, inviolate
    before Time's ravages.
    
    Lore - Know that my name is Feolthanos, He who laid open this land of Lemures
    for you, My followers and people, the aegyl. Know that I ever stand above you,
    delivering you from harm. For I am the Undying, the Eternal.
    -The Canon, Book of Origins, Canto I
    
    The Canon - Obtained after Mission 3-1
    
    History - A collection of inscriptions scattered throughout Lemures believed
    to contain the words of Feolthanos. The Canon is the code by which the aegyl
    lead their lives. It details the origins of the auraliths and proscribes al
    contact with the outside world.
    
    Lore - Herein inscribed are the words of He Who Leads, Feolthanos, the
    Eternal. Honor His words. Teach your children to honor them, and your
    children's children. In so doing, may you know peace.

    Tormelados, Isle of the Megalith
    
    History - The great skystone piercing the island cuts an imposing figure, but
    many are the sky pirate who have found respite on the slopes of the gently
    rolling hills in its eaves. An auralith sits enshrined in the island's fane,
    marking it for the sacred place it is to the aegyl.
    
    Lore - I've not seen the like of the skystone that dominates the landscape
    here. The climate beneath the stone is cool and pleasant, and there is a great
    shrine-small though it appears by comparison-standing near its base. What
    treasures wait within?

    Astral Crystal - Obtained after Mission 3-4
    
    History - Exceptionally rare and powerful pieces of auracite entrusted to the
    faithful after long hours of vigil and prayer. These crystals mark their
    bearers as devoted servants of the Eternal, and through Him, enable them to
    fortify the Yarhi at their command.
    
    Lore - Should you seek powers surpassing even the Yarhi, look once more to the
    auraliths. To the chosen among you shall I give Stones of peerless might.

    The Judge of Wings - Obtained after Mission 3-4
    
    History - The mysterious figure behind the sky pirates' search for auracite.
    Little is known of this so-called judge's identity or motives, though there
    are whispers that the Judge plans an assault on Ivalice.

    The Muruc Cahuac Skysea - Obtained after Mission 3-5
    
    History - A picturesque island named for the sparkling blue sea that dominates
    much of its surface. Its white beaches and lively port town have already
    marked it as a jewel by sky pirates. The sea itself is dotted with many small
    islands rumored to hide more literal treasures.
    
    Lore - I have arrived at the great skysea of Lemures. The sea stretches from
    end to end of this great island. It is truly a sight to behold. I must make
    time to swim its blue waters.

    Bounty of Lemures - Obtained after Mission 4-1
    
    History - Lemures is replete with natural resources, from rare ores and
    precious gemstones to supple lumber. In the hands of a skilled artificer these
    materials are readily transformed into weapons of superior quality. The
    aegyl's judicious use of such only left more for sky pirate's rapine.
    
    Lore - The aegyl have always turned to artificers to craft their weapons. And
    so has it fallen upon our people, the Cu Sith, to take p this most taxing of
    trades. Read and learn of the secrets we have carried down through the ages.
    -Artificer's Codex
    
    Tswarra, Isle of the Lost - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    History - Though possessed of wings, the aegyl rarely fly between islands.
    Indeed, many islands remain free of any aegyl habitation, preserves unmarred
    by civilization's touch. On even the most densely populated isles it is a
    light touch, they eschewing the artifices of agriculture, living instead off
    the land.
    
    Lore - To Tread on Holy Ground
    The aegyl inhabit only those places their god has deemed right and proper.
    Thus have they avoided the territorial disputes that have plagued so much of
    Ivalice's history.
    -Royal Society of Anthropology
    
    Aegyl Diet - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    History - The aegyl are primarily gatherers of fruits and wild grasses, though
    they occasionally supplement their diet with fish and eggs. This is enough to
    maintain the small aegyl population.. The fauna of Lemures consists in the
    main of Yarhi, illusory beasts with nary a scrap of meat to offer would-be
    hunters.
    
    Lore - Fancied some meat for dinner, so I headed out to the woods and shot a
    boar. The beast had sarce hit the ground when it disappeared right before my
    eyes! The aegyl may not eat meat, but I don't know how long I can last on nuts
    and berries.
    -Sky Pirate Cook
    
    Aegyl Dress - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    History - The aegyl generally adorn themselves with light clothing and
    ornaments of only the thinnest metal, so as to facilitate flight. it is
    fortunate, then, that the climate remains temperate year round, this suiting
    the aegyl inclination toward dispassion withal.
    
    Lore - Aegyl clothing isn't all that different from what you'd find in
    Rabanastre. If anything, the weather is slightly cooler in Lemures, though it
    doesn't stop them dressing light. Saves us buying another set of clothes, at
    least.
    -Tomaj's Ramblings
    
    Aegyl Dwellings - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    History - The aegyl have long since ceased building new dwellings, living
    instead in the ruins left by their ancestors. The stone architecture in
    evidence speaks to the grand scale and quality of the aegyl stonemason's
    vision and skill.
    
    Lore - Reflections of Aegyl Habitation
    Though the aegyl are social people, they cluster among the ruins of their
    ancestors rather than build structures anew, their humility evident in this.
    -Royal Society of Anthropology
    
    Arda, Heaven's Pillar - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    History - A mountainous island whose austere peaks evoke humility and awe.
    Though there are countless mountains, array like so many rows of jagged teeth,
    the Ymir Qul towers above them all. A sacred mount to the aegyl, a garrison of
    warriors defends it against roaming Yarhi.
    
    Lore - The island they call Arda must surely hold the loftiest peaks in all
    the world. The roots of these mountains begin in the clouds, the summits rise
    to heights unthinkable on Ivalice.
    -Royal Society of Anthropology
    
    Aegyl Warriors - Obtained after Mission 6-1
    
    History - Though the aegyl are not given to violence or war, the ever-present
    threat of the Yarhi requires that some take up the sword. Leading their own
    Yarhi into battle, these warriors defend the temples and settlements of their
    kin.
    
    Lore - Fifth of Brinemoon
    Again the Yarhi came. The unbound force their way into the fane in defiance of
    the Canon. We drive them back, but I fear if a new pact is not soon forged,
    all is lost.
    -Fane Watchman
    
    Lesrekta, Isle of Illusions - Obtained after Mission 7-3
    
    History - Realm of the Yarhi, created by the anima Feolthanos has stolen
    through the auraliths. It is a world that lies between worlds, rich in Mist.
    The summoning gates are the portals through which the Yarhi enter our world,
    and on rare occasion when the Mist seethes and boils, through which we may
    enter theirs.
    
    Lore - I wait, but she does not return. Her friends tell me she'd ben playing
    near a summoning gate when she vanished. I must accept that she walks the
    World of Illusion now. Perhaps it is the will of the Eternal.
    -Account of an Aegyl Mother
    
    Auracite's Truth - Obtained after Mission 7-3
    
    History - It is widely known that auracite is the focus used to summon Yarhi.
    Yet few are aware of the ramifications. With each summoning, the summoner's
    anima is siphoned away, stored in the great auraliths. So habitually do the
    aegyl use these summoning stones, they are grown devoid of all feeling.
    
    Lore - Something is amiss. Strange tidings since the auracite came. Though the
    bitter wars are ended, there is an undeniable sense that something
    irreplaceable has been taken from us. Feolthanos, what have you done?
    -Testimony of a Heretic
    
    The Underworld - Obtained after Mission 7-4
    
    History - A common aegyl expression for Ivalice. Though the aegyl are children
    of Ivalice, they challenged her gods and were banished to the skies for this
    heresy. The sorrow of their loss soon turned to anger, and they embraced their
    exile, swearing off all contact with the world they'd left below.
    
    Lore - You are now a people of the clouds. Leave all thoughts of the
    underworld behind- they need not burden you. Your place is here, in Lemures,
    and no other. Stray not from the Canon, and the cup of peace shall ever be
    full for you.
    -The Canon, Book of Ardor, Canto XX
    
    The Chronicles - Obtained after Mission 7-4
    
    History - A scroll found in the Glabados Ruins detailing the origins of
    Lemures and the history of the aegyl. Of particular note are the passages
    describing the rise of the aegyl against the Occuria and their defeat and
    exile that were to follow.
    
    Lore - Once they walked Ivalice beside her gods. But kneel before them they
    would not. So they rose against them, and so sealed their doom among the skies.
    -Prologue
    
    Feol Viera - Obtained during Taking Counsel (2), before traveling to Roda
    Volcano.
    
    History - An offshoot of the viera marked by their short ears and golden hair.
    They are the descendants of the coupling of Feolthanos and a viera maiden
    thousands of years past. The viera heeded the Green Word and drove them from
    the Wood, their punishment for consorting with the outside world.
    
    Lore - They violated the Green Word and the will of the Wood, and so did we
    drive them out. Their blood is mixed with the blood of outsiders, a taint that
    can never be cleansed. Better that they meet their ruin. They are no viera.
    -Ancient Viera Text
    
    Mydia - Obtained after Mission 8-4
    
    History - A Feol viera who left her village to travel Ivalice. She met and
    fell in love with a man from Rabanastre who was later killed in the war with
    the Empire. In her grief, she sought out Feolthanos, surrendering herself to
    the will of the Eternal. Together they plot to invade Ivalice.
    
    Lore - I speak to our father, but he remains distant. My words do not reach
    him. I do not know what to do. How can I gain his favor? His notice?
    -Undelivered Letter to Mydia's Mother
    
    The Galbana - Obtained after Mission 8-4
    
    History - An airship of aegyl construction. Feolthanos intended it for the
    offspring of his viera wide he was forced to leave behind. It would be
    thousands of years before it would fulfil this task by bringing Mydia to
    Lemures. Drawn to the Cache of Glabados, it later brought Vaan to the sky
    continent.
    
    Lore - My beloved wife and children. The anger of false gods is still to be
    feared. When the time is right I shall send for you. Until then you must wait.
    Be patient. Remain strong. We shall be united in the heavens above Ivalice.
    -Statue Inscription
    
    Feolthanos the Outcast - Obtained after Mission 8-4
    
    History - Leader of the aegyl at a time when the race was still young. He led
    with compassion and wisdom, treating each aegyl as dearly as his own flesh and
    blood. He seized the opportunity presented by the war with the Occuria to
    pursue true freedom for his people in the skies above Ivalice.
    
    Lore - Sadness and Despair are War's fruits, Death Her handmaiden. We must
    rise above this futile struggle. Follow me, and I shall lead you to a paradise
    above the clouds.
    -The Canon, Book of Apocrypha
    
    Keep of Forgotten Time - Obtained after Mission 9-1
    
    History - Aegyl stronghold that has stood for thousands of years. A dense Mist
    envelops the keep, distorting the surrounding fabric of reality and trapping
    fallen aegyl warriors in an eternal shadow play of forgotten battles.
    
    Lore - Time's voice echoes through the corridors of the keep, and the battle
    rages anew. Neither dawn nor dusk visit these heights beyond light's reach.
    The battle knows no end, for herein dwells the Eternal.
    -The Warrior's Lament
    
    The History of Lemures - Obtained after Mission 9-4
    
    History - The aegyl fled to Lemures to escape the Occuria, self-styled gods
    and stewards of Ivalice. In their rage, the Occuria used the Mist in the
    skystone of Lemures to entrap the aegyl. Thus isolated from the world below,
    they slowly faded from the weave of Ivalice's history.
    
    Lore - Out of Ivalice
    Our assumption that the aegyl were native to Lemures has proven incorrect.
    Details of their origins in Ivalice remain difficult to come by, but we shall
    endeavor to do so.
    
    The Last Auralith - Obtained after Mission 9-4
    
    History - Trapped in Lemrues, the aegyl soon turned their anger toward each
    other. unable to watch as his people destroyed themselves, Feolthanos set
    about using auraliths to collect the anima of his fellow aegyl. The last of
    these sits deep in his keep, the most sacred artifact in Lemures.
    
    Lore - The die is cast. Our path is chosen. Perhaps the day will come when
    this, too, must end. When I must be struck down to make way for a new era.
    When eternity is no more.

    Vaan - Obtained after Mission 2-1
    
    History - Reluctant leader of a group of orphans in Rabanastre's Lowtown. Vaan
    had long dreamed of becoming a  sky pirate before the Fates took matters into
    their own hands, placing him alongside Balthier in the midst of a great war
    and setting him down the path to making his dream a reality.
    
    Lore - Traveling with Ashe and Balthier changed my life. It changed
    everything. And Penelo, well... Wait, what were we talking about?
    -Vaan
    
    Penelo - Obtained after Mission 2-1
    
    History - Orphaned when her family was killed in the war with the Empire,
    Penelo is Vaan's closest friend. Following Vaan on his misadventures, Penelo
    keeps him out of trouble as best she can. A dancer since she was very young,
    Penelo fills her companions with cheer and hope when all seems lost.
    
    Lore - What trouble have those two gotten themselves into this time?? If they
    think they're too old to be worried after, they're quite mistaken! Bah! So
    long as they're all right, I'm sure I'll manage to forgive them-after a good
    and proper scolding!
    -Migelo
    
    Kytes - obtained after Mission 2-1
    
    History - Young orphan from Rabanastre's Lowtown. Kytes had always looked up
    to Vaan as though he were his older brother, even sharing his dream of
    becoming a sky pirate. When Vaan returned from his struggle against the
    Empire, Kytes began studying magick to become a sky pirate in earnest.
    
    Lore - At first I thought I'd try fighting the way Vaan does. You know,
    swords, daggers, those kinds of things. But it wasn't really for me. That's
    when I started studying magick. Only problem is, I haven't had much time to
    keep my lockpicking up...
    -Kytes
    
    Filo - Obtained after Mission 2-1
    
    History - Young orphan from Rabanastre's Lowtown. A friend of Kytes and many
    children in Lowtown, Filo's Buccaneer's Brigade drilled long hours hoping to
    one day become sky pirates.
    
    Lore - I could never get the hang of weapons or magick, but I really like
    these skybandits. Nobody's keeping me out of a good fight!
    -Filo
    
    Tomaj - Obtained after Mission 2-1
    
    History - Barman at the Sandsea, a lively tavern in Rabanastre. Tomaj is also
    a member of Clan Centurio, always keeping an eye out for promising young
    adventurers to recruit into the clan. He prefers work behind the scenes to the
    battlefield, putting his experience at the Skysea to use securing supplies.
    
    Lore - It wasn't all that long ago I was watching Vaan and the rest running
    errands for Migelo. I miss those days...

    Llyud - Obtained after Mission 2-1
    
    History - A warrior of the winged aegyl race. Most aegyl avoid contact with
    outsiders, but Llyud's curious nature has led him to join Vaan and his
    companions on their travels. Many aegyl now call  him traitor and heretic for
    this choice.
    
    Lore - Llyud has always stood out from the others. He would travel from island
    to island,ever curious. now he's even fallen in with sky pirates. Say what you
    will about that, he's always been reliable. There's no warrior I'd rather have
    at my side.
    -Acquaintance of Llyud
    
    Ba'Gamnan - Obtained after Mission 2-3
    
    History - Bangaa headhunter of ill repute. He once hunted the most notorious
    marks in Ivalice-Balthier himself among them. But Ba'Gamnan's ruthless ways
    eventually led to a price being put on his head. Even his own henchmen have
    begun to doubt his leadership.
    
    Lore - He has long been a menace and threat to the peace of the Empire. The
    Ministry of Law may once have had use for such as he, but in a time of peace
    we can ill afford the threat in such allegiances. Let a bounty be placed on
    his head, and his head on a pike.
    -Proceedings of the Imperial Senate
    
    Bwagi, Gijuk, and Rinok - Obtained after Mission 3-5
    
    History - Ba'Gamnan's henchmen, led up by Bwagi, the most powerful of the
    three. Gijuk is a base and cruel creature. The only female among them, Rinok
    is no less vile than her male counterparts. The price on Ba'Gamnan's head is
    apparently the price of their loyalty.
    
    Lore - Loyal and true we were, but there are limits, eh? The smallest worm
    will turn, being trodden on. Aye, Ba'Gamnan would appreciate that. He got his
    due, and no more.
    -Bwagi.
    
    Rikken, Elza, and Raz - Obtained during Mission 4-1, after heading over to the
    port town.
    
    History - Pirates from Balfonheim Port, a den of sea-and skyfaring pirates
    renowned through Ivalice. They met Vaan during his dealings with their former
    master, the late Pirate King Reddas. Outwardly as rough as they come, they are
    nonetheless good-natured and, on the whole, well-intentioned.
    
    Lore - It were good seein' you, Vaan! A right proper sky pirate you've grown
    into. Lord Reddas, rest his soul, would be proud. We're doin' right by him,
    not to worry. Balfonheim is bein' well looked after. Now hadn't you be about
    your sky piratin'?
    -Raz
    
    Balthier - Obtained after Mission 7-3
    
    History - Legendary sky pirate with an unlikely past. His love for treasure
    gets him in trouble often as not, and this is how he came to travel with Vaan
    and the others. The self-proclaimed "leading man," Balthier has chosen to step
    out of the limelight for a time.
    
    Lore - Oh, how the miserable have risen. Here I am, a bounty on my head, and
    Balthier is celebrated from one end of Ivalice to the other. If only I had a
    proper ship to give chase... Ah, this derelict should do nicely.
    -Ba'Gamnan
    
    Fran - Obtained after Mission 7-3
    
    History - Balthier's most trusted ally. Fran is a fierce warrior and skilled
    mechanist. As a viera she is uniquely aware of the Mist that pervades all
    things. Young in appearance, her people are long lived, obscuring her true age.
    
    Lore - The Mist in the auracite is strong. If I am not careful, even I might
    succumb to it. The viera among these sky pirates do not know the danger in
    which they place themselves. It is all too easy to lose one's self to these
    Stones.
    -Fran
    
    Nono - Obtained after Mission 7-3
    
    History - Chief mechanist on Balthier's airship, the Strahl. Sure-fingered and
    dextrouos, moogles are highly prized members in any crew.
    
    Lore - There would be no airships today if not for the pioneering moogles who
    invented them. There's much talk these days of the superiority of Archadian
    airships, but don't count us out just yet, kupo!
    -Fervid Moogle
    
    Ashelia Dalmasca - Obtained during Mission 8-1, after visiting the Leviathan.
    
    History - Young queen of the recently liberated Kingdom of Dalmasca. Lady Ashe
    led Vaan and the others in their struggle against the Empire. Stong-willed by
    nature, it is little surprise that she has chosen to confront the impending
    Yarhi threat in person.
    
    Lore - I called upon the young queen today to see if we might be of any
    assistance in this latest threat to our kingdoms. To my surprise, she was not
    receiving visitors, and would not be for some time. Pity to have traveled so
    far for naught.
    -Visiting Statesman
    
    Basch fon Ronsenburg - Obtained during Mission 8-1, after visiting the
    Leviathan.
    
    History - A decorated hero of Dalmasca. He fought alongside Ashe and Vaan
    against the Empire, and is widely believed dead. He toils now in secret under
    his brother's name as a judge in the Archadian Empire, the well-being of the
    people ever foremost in his mind.
    
    Lore - We have sworn never to speak of Captain Basch. He willingly sacrificed
    his own honor so that peace might take root. I do not know that I could do
    something so noble as that.
    -Member of the Dalmascan Resistance
    
    Larsa Solidor - Obtained after Mission 8-1
    
    History - Boy-emperor of the Archadian Empire. Before assuming the mantle of
    Empire, Lord Larsa traveled with Lady Ashe and Vaan as he sought to avert the
    war set in motion by his father and elder brother. His love of peace has not
    faltered, and he brings all his power to bear to maintain that peace.
    
    Lore - Some felt Lord Larsa ill fit to lead the Empire. They heralded the fall
    of House Solidor. Surely those voices must now fall silent. He has led with
    strength and wisdom. He has been tempered by the fires of war. He is an
    example for us all.

    Today we met one of the people who live on the sky continent. He's an aegyl
    named Llyud, and he doesn't talk much at all. I think he may have something
    against sky pirates.
    -Kytes
    
    No Manners - Obtained after Mission 2-1
    
    That aegyl is so rude! Never says "hello," never says "thanks"...never says
    anything! What trouble did we cause to deserve this?
    -Filo
    You cause trouble in your own way, Filo. Just kidding! Don't be mad.
    -Kytes
    
    Bored - Obtained after Mission 2-2
    
    Kytes certainly didn't mince words. Well todaoy I'm looking after the ship
    while everyone's away. Ba'Gamnan's restless as usual...I could use a way to
    pass the time.
    -Tomaj
    
    Eureka! - Obtained after Mission 2-2
    
    I think I've found the answer to our Ba'Gamnan trouble. I don't want to say
    any more until I'm sure. After tonight we'll know, one way or the other.
    -Tomaj
    
    Ba'Gamnan's Bane - Obtained after Mission 2-3
    
    Tomaj told me how it works, but I still don't trust it. I just hope Ba'Gamnan
    doesn't break free in the middle of the night and come for me... It's kinda
    scary in my room all alone. Maybe I can stay at Penelo's?
    -Kytes
    
    Log Check - Obtained after Mission 2-4
    
    I'm sure you'll be fine on your own Kytes. Llyud, this log is for the entire
    crew, which you're now a member of, so write something when you have the time.
    That goes for you too, Vaan. Don't tell me you're too busy captaining to
    scribble something down!
    -Penelo
    
    Captain's First Log - Obtained after Mission 2-4, just before starting Mission
    3-1
    
    Happy now? I'm writing! I don't think a log check should count as you entry.
    What am I supposed to write? "Isle of the Megalith ahoy! Rudders full to
    port!"?
    -Vaan
    
    Clouds Below - Obtained after Mission 3-1
    
    Rescued fellows from attack.
    In pursuit of sky pirates.
    We make for the fane.
    May the clouds be below us.
    -Llyud
    
    That's it? - Obtained after Mission 3-1
    
    Is that all you can say, Llyud? There has to be something more you could
    write. We are your friends, after all.
    -Filo
    
    Grand Opening - Obtained after Mission 3-1
    
    No need to bicker! If I don't see you at the grand opening of my shop, then
    we'll have something to argue about. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went
    into this...not literally, of course.
    -Tomaj
    
    Security - Obtained after Mission 3-2
    
    When Vaan let us into the shrine, the auralith was out in the open, just
    asking to be stolen. The aegyl sure are trusting.
    -Kytes
    
    An East Wind - Obtained after Mission 3-2
    
    Strong winds worry at my wings in spite of fair weather today. I know of no
    aegyl who would steal as the sky pirates do.
    -Llyud
    
    Memories - Obtained after Mission 3-2
    
    Sneaking into the shrine the other day reminded me of breaking into the
    palace. I'd never have met Balthier and Fran if it wasn't for that. Now we're
    practically inseparable! Practically....
    -Vaan
    
    Preparations - Obtained after Mission 3-4
    
    Business has been brisk, and I've thought of a good use we can put the sky
    saloon to. I've also taken in a stray Yarhi. I think there may even be a place
    for it in my plans.
    -Tomaj
    
    Master Artificer - Obtained after Mission 3-4
    
    Master Tomaj, I must object to you calling me "it." I am a master artificer,
    and you cannot expect to receive my services if I am not treated with the
    proper respect.
    -Cu Sith, Master Artificer
    
    Worried - Obtained after Mission 3-4
    
    So are we going to fight the Judge of Wings? The one Balthier couldn't even
    beat?
    -Kytes
    I'd give Balthier a little more credit. Wouldn't you agree, Vaan?
    -Penelo
    
    The Leading Man - Obtained after Mission 3-5
    
    It'll take more than that to stop Balthier. SOmething bad always happens to
    the leading man in the first act, but everything gets straightened out by the
    end. I'm sure he's already off hunting treasure. He'll turn up before we have
    a chance to miss him.
    -Vaan
    
    Comeuppance - Obtained after Mission 3-5
    
    I almost feel bad for Ba'Gamnan. Even those other bangaa he's always with
    don't want anything to do with him. But that's what he gets for terrorizing
    people all the time.
    -Filo
    
    Unappreciated - Obtained after Mission 3-5
    
    Does nobody appreciate all I've done? The shops in the sky saloon, the notice
    board- I'd have to say I've done pretty well. Because no one else will say it
    for me!
    -Tomaj
    I appreciate you, Master Tomaj!
    -Cu Sith, Master Artificer
    
    A Hard Bargain - Obtained during Mission 4-1, after heading over to the port
    town.
    
    I'm full of hidden talents. Maybe I'll teach you someday, Penelo.
    -Filo
    Lucky for Filo, Rikken's not as cutthroat as he looks.
    -Kytes
    
    Hmph! - Obtained after Mission 4-1
    
    I didn't hear Kytes saving us hundreds of thousands of gil. It's not my fault
    Rikken can't win at his own game!
    -Filo
    
    Like Phon Coast - Obtained after Mission 4-1
    
    Now, now. Play nice. I can see why so many people come to the skysea. The
    water's beautiful! Don't you wish you could just jump right in?
    -Penelo
    
    Like a Shark - Obtained after Mission 4-1
    
    I'll have you know I'm an excellent swimmer.
    -Tomaj
    
    Like a Dog - Obtained after Mission 4-1
    
    I can dog paddle!
    -Kytes
    
    Like the Idea! - Obtained after Mission 4-1
    
    I'm always up for a swim.
    -Vaan
    
    Like Solid Ground! - Obtained after Mission 4-1
    
    Well, if you asked me, and nobody did, by the way, I think we have much bigger
    things to worry about! Besides, not everyone can swim, you know.
    -Filo
    
    Like Sky Pirates! - Obtained after Mission 4-1
    
    Filo's right. We have work to do!
    -Penelo
    How did this come up again?
    -Kytes
    So, we're not going?
    -Vaan
    You tell 'em, Penelo!
    -Filo
    
    Clear Skies - Obtained after Mission 4-2
    
    All is clear. Rescued Rikken once again. Tomaj reports a sighting of the Judge
    of Wings. Course is set for Yapih Caverns. One thing puzzles me. Why would one
    want to submerge one's self in water?
    -Llyud
    
    Passing Time - Obtained after Mission 4-2
    
    Don't knock it until you've tried it! Anyway, here I am stuck on the ship
    while everyone's away again. The shops are stocked, the decks are tidy, and
    there's nothing for the notice board. I think I'll take Cu Sith out for a
    stroll. Nice day for it.
    -Tomaj
    
    Despicable - Obtained after Mission 4-3
    
    Of all the underhanded treachery! That spineless snake Ba'Gamnan thinks he can
    get back at us by taking Filo? Mark my words- he'll pay for this! Make him pay
    for this, Vaan!
    -Tomaj
    
    Insecure - Obtained after Mission 4-4
    
    I barely remember being taken, but now that I'm back on the ship I'm sort of
    scared. Not so much of Ba'Gamnan as the Judge of Wings. But everything'll be
    fine, right, Vaan?
    -Filo
    
    Smooth Sailing - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    Turns out Rikken was sitting on a goldmine! And now I know just where to go
    and just what to do! I just don't know why the ship is shaking...
    -Tomaj
    
    Marooned - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    I have to admit, keeping a log is more fun that I thought it would be. Vaan
    doesn't seem to be enjoying himself, though. He'd better snap out of it before
    Penelo snaps him out.
    -Tomaj
    
    Dry Dock - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    The aegyl are surprisingly good with their hands, and the repairs have gone
    smoothly. Unfortunately, even with the repairs done, the ship won't budge.
    She's as stubborn as her captain.
    -Tomaj
    
    State of Mind - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    Well, the captain may be sinking, but the airship should be soaring soon
    enough. And not a moment too soon. People are starting to go a little
    stir-crazy, if you ask me.
    -Tomaj
    
    Shipshape - Obtained after Mission 5-4
    
    I went outside to announce the repairs were complete to a decidedly muted
    reception. How did it come to this? I never really liked Velis, but I can't
    stand to see Penelo crying. Time to take matters into my own hands.
    -Tomaj
    
    Found It! - Obtained after visiting Heaven's Vigil, after Mission 5-4
    
    Turns out Tomaj had the log the whole time.
    -Kytes
    I say we let him write the whole thing!
    -Vaan
    Hear, hear!
    -Filo
    Do your own dirty work!
    -Tomaj
    
    On Balthier's Trail - Obtained after visiting Heaven's Vigil, after Mission 5-4
    
    It's such a relief knowing Fran's all right. But what's Balthier doing in the
    mountains? I guess we'll find out when we catch up with him. The sooner the
    better.
    -Penelo
    
    Gone Too Far - Obtained after Mission 6-1
    
    I can't believe that scoundrel had the nerve to try and kidnap Fran! It's time
    I teach Ba'Gamnan a lesson he won't forget!
    -Filo
    
    Dark Clouds - Obtained after Mission 6-2
    
    Storms rage about the Pillar of Heaven. Fran is safe and in our number. never
    have I spoken to a viera before, but they share much in common with aegyl.
    Still, there is something very different about her. Perhaps it is her anima?
    -Llyud
    
    Mist - Obtained after Mission 6-2
    
    Sounds like Fran doesn't make any more sense to you than she does to us,
    Llyud. Don't get me wrong, though. I like having her around. I hope she
    decides to stay.
    -Kytes
    
    Planning the Plan - Obtained after Mission 6-2
    
    I couldn't agree more, Kytes! All we need is a plan to convince her to stick
    around... You'll think of something!
    -Tomaj
    I'll think of something? Umm, I don't know about that...
    -Kytes
    
    Executing the Plan - Obtained after Mission 6-3
    
    Well, I thought about it, but Fran just doesn't seem like she'll fall for
    flowers or that sort of thing. Maybe Cu Sith could make her something special.
    -Kytes
    
    Canceling the Plan - Obtained after Mission 6-3
    
    Bad news. Apparently, Cu Sith can't make anything besides weapons. When I
    asked about those mementos she's been making, she just squinted her eyes at
    me. So much for the plan.
    -Tomaj
    
    Missing! - Obtained after Mission 7-3
    
    There were tremors in the mountains, and nobody's returned since. I searched
    the caves but couldn't find anyone, and before I knew it the Strahl was gone.
    I hope for the best, but somehow I doubt everyone just got lost...
    -Tomaj
    
    Searching - Obtaiend after Mission 7-3
    
    I'm starting to get worried. I questioned the sky pirates, the aegyl, and even
    had Cu Sith ask the Yarhi, but no one knows where everyones gone. It's as if
    they vanished into thin air. But they have to be somewhere...
    -Tomaj
    
    Wondering - Obtained after Mission 7-3
    
    If this is a joke, I'm not laughing. I know they're out there. Somewhere. Will
    search again tomorrow.
    -Tomaj
    You mustn't exhaust yourself so, Master Tomaj. They'll be back before you know
    it.
    -Cu Sith, Master Artificer
    
    Hope - Obtained after Mission 7-3
    
    I saw Fran and Balthier today. They tell me everyone's alive and well, and
    that I need only stay put and wait for them to return. I'm too exhausted to go
    anywhere anyway.
    -Tomaj
    
    Back Onboard - Obtained after Mission 7-3
    
    Sorry for the scare we gave you, Tomaj. I thought you'd give up on us and be
    halfway back to Ivalice by now. Well, looks like Clan Galbana is back together!
    -Vaan
    
    A North Wind - Obtained after Mission 7-4
    
    Clouds sail serenely past, but the wind is chill. Warriors I once called ally
    were among the party that attacked the ship. Had I not met you, I would be as
    they. I shudder at the thought.
    -Llyud
    
    The Queen - Obtained during Mission 8-1, after visiting the Leviathan
    
    I can hardly believe Vaan and Penelo are really friends with the queen! You
    told us before, and I believed you, but I don't think it had really sunk in
    until now. I wouldn't want to get on the queen's bad side. She'd probably
    throw me in a dungeon!
    -Filo
    
    The Emperor - Obtained after Mission 8-1
    
    I can't believe we're going to see Larsa! If only it were under better
    circumstances. I almost feel guilty being happy about it.
    -Penelo
    Don't. I'm sure he'll be happy to see you, too.
    -Vaan
    
    Rabanastre - Obtained during Mission 8-2 (if The Secluded is the chosen quest.)
    
    I paid a visit to Rabanastre while Vaan and the others were down in Giza.
    Migelo was worried about everyone, naturally, but he seemed to relax a bit
    once I told him what had been going on. At least he gave me a warmer welcome
    than I got at the Sandsea...
    -Tomaj
    
    True Captain - Obtained during Mission 8-2 (if Ye Who Rest is the chosen
    quest.)
    
    To be honest, I never thought much of Basch from what I'd heard about the war
    and the Empire. Now I realize that everything he does is to protect others.
    One day, I'm going to be like him.
    -Kytes
    
    A Calm - Obtained after Mission 8-2
    
    We have passed below the veil of clouds and come to the Glabados Ruins, a
    place built for the children of Feolthanos. We aegyl are not without family,
    but we do not share the bond that you do. Our lives are short. What might
    those lives be like with such bonds?
    -Llyud
    
    Inferno - Obtained after Mission 8-3
    
    When I first heard there were people living on the volcano, I couldn't believe
    my ears. I can only imagine how reclusive the ancient viera must have been to
    choose such a place. How could anyone live like that?
    -Tomaj
    
    Regrets - Obtained after Mission 8-4
    
    I keep wondering what I could have done to save Mydia. But there's no time for
    that now. We have a promise to keep.
    -Vaan
    
    Falling Stars - Obtained after Mission 9-1
    
    We breached the Mist-bound gate. I have seen the hatred my ancestors held
    against each other play out before me. I have not known war, but I see its
    sadness and hatred, and I know I must bring it to an end.
    -Llyud
    
    Being a Sky Pirate - Obtained after Mission 9-2
    
    I think I finally see what Penelo wanted us to understand. being a sky pirate
    isn't about treasure. It's about being free, and doing what you think is
    right. Right now that means saving Llyud, whatever it takes!
    -Filo
    
    Last Minute - Obtained after Mission 9-3
    
    This is what we've all been waiting for. If you're not ready now, you never
    will be. You are ready, aren't you? Once this is all over, maybe I'll go into
    business for myself. Lots to be done before then, though!
    -Tomaj
    
    Looking Back - Obtained after Mission 9-4
    
    I know it's a little late to bring this up, but I hope I've bee a good
    captain. Our time in Lemures has had its ups and downs, but I hope someday
    we'll look back on it and smile.
    -Vaan
    
    We're Behind You - Obtained after Mission 10-1
    
    We who cannot be with you in body will be with you in spirit! Nono will keep
    the ship in shape, Lord Larsa will watch over Ivalice, and of course, Master
    Tomaj and I will be waiting for your safe return. Don't make us wait long!
    -Cu Sith, Master Artificer
    
    Blank Page - Obtained after Mission 10-2
    
    So you've reached Feolthanos. There's not much left to write. The rest is up
    to you. I'm leaving the last page of the log blank, for when you come back.

    I'm a sky pirate.

    A hull full of friends.
    Sails swift as wind.

    Mission List
    
    01 - Vaan, the Sky Pirate
    
    While exploring the Glabados Ruins, Vaan is soon separated from the others. He
    must find his friends before they leave him behind!
    
    02 - The Treasures Twain
    
    Joined by Balthier and Fran, Vaan and Penelo reach the heart of the Glabados
    Ruin. But something stands between them and the coveted treasure...
    
    03 - Eve of Adventure
    
    Treasure is all well and good for sky pirates, but it means little enough
    without an airship. And so Vaan and Penelo resume life as usual...until the
    unusual happens.
    
    04 - The Coveted Derelict
    
    A derelict airship lands outside the gates of Rabanastre - a temptation no
    self-respecting sky pirate can resist. After a brief skirmish at the city's
    edge, Vaan plots a way past the watch.
    
    05 - The Treasure is the Key
    
    The interior of the derelict is no more inviting than the desert outside. As
    Vaan and the others battle within its fantastic confines, the Cache of
    Glabados begins to glow.
    
    06 - Unwelcome Guests
    
    With the Cache of Glabados in hand, Vaan and his friends explore the
    derelict's interior. Meanwhile, Penelo mistakes trouble outside the ship for
    Vaan's work. Who's really behind it?
    
    07 - The Winged
    
    The derelict-now known as the Galbana - brings Vaan and his friends to the
    legendary sky continent. What wonders await them on its many islands?
    
    08 - Auracite and the Yarhi
    
    Clan Galbana springs to action to rescue the aegyl Llyud. But they're in for a
    fight-the sky pirates invading Lemures have arrived in force.
    
    09 - Reinforcements
    
    The party learns the sky pirates seek auracite, magick stones used to summon

    shrine's twisting passages in search of answers.
    
    10 - 'Neath Darkened Wings
    
    The group presses on with the help of Ba'Gamnan, who is tamed by Tomaj's
    device. Arriving at the shrine's inner sanctum, they learn the true ambitions
    of the sky pirates.
    
    11 - Savagery
    
    The Galbana drops anchor at the Isle of the Megalith to stop the Judge of
    Wings from reaching the auralith, only to find a sky pirate attack already
    underway.
    
    12 - Rendezvous Round Back
    
    After saving the aegyl, the party heads for the shrine holding the auralith,
    but a watch has already been posted outside! How does Vaan plan to sneak past?
    
    13 - The Crystal's Cry
    
    Having slipped past the watch, the party continues toward the inner chambers
    of the shrine in search of the auralith. What they find is beyond imagination.
    
    14 - Judge of Wings
    
    Although the party succeed in defeating the sky pirates, they were not quick
    enough to prevent damage to the auralith. As they examine the cryptic device
    nearby, ominous footsteps draw near.
    
    15 - Backstabbing Bangaa
    
    After showing the party a troubling vision, the Judge of Wings destroys the
    auralith. As Vaan and the others give chase, they happen upon unexpected
    company.
    
    16 - Pirates in Peril!
    
    The party tracks the Judge of Wings to the shores of the Muruc Cahuac Skysea,
    where they happen upon Rikken and his band of pirates. They know
    something...or at least look like they do.
    
    17 - Pirates and Parrot in Peril!
    
    In the end, Rikken had little new to say, so the search for the judge is back
    where it started. Rikken wastes no time finding trouble again.
    
    18 - Unrelenting Nemesis
    
    While the others were busy with Rikken, Tomaj had his ear to the ground. His
    efforts discovered an underground shrine the party now moves to explore.
    Familiar foes and a fantastic find await.
    
    19 - Filo in a Bind

    His motives are unclear, but he's clearly up to no good.
    
    20 - Rite of Despair
    
    Ba'Gamnan is defeated with the help of Rikken and friends, and Filo is back
    safe and sound. But they don't have long to stop and rest, as a new darkness
    gathers...
    
    21 - The Man in the Jungle
    
    The Galbana sustained heavy damage when the Judge of Wings destroyed the
    skysea, but managed to make landfall on a deserted island. However, the island
    may not e so deserted after all...
    
    22 - A Gift for Penelo

    save Penelo. Vaan, having none of it, strikes out to find food.

    one night Velis asks Penelo to join him outside the ship.

    Balthier has lived to fight another day! On Fran's recommendation, Vaan and
    the others follow his trail into the mountains to learn the truth of what's
    happened, but old enemies complicate their plans.
    
    26 - Terms of Alliance
    
    Bwagi and the rest were only a diversion for Ba'Gamnan's true objective,
    abduction. His new underlings descend on a lone Fran.
    
    27 - At Fran's Side
    
    Her abduction thwarted, Fran guides the party through sacred mountain passes
    as they traverse the Ymir Qul to find Balthier.
    
    28 - Audience at the Auralith
    
    Fran leads the party through a cave deep in the Ymir Qul. Within beats the
    sacred heart of the mountain. Is the curtain about to rise on a new act of
    their adventure?
    
    29 - Balthier's Betrayal
    
    The Judge of Wings dispatched, Balthier approaches the shimmering auralith.
    What does he mean to do when he reaches it?
    
    30 - Never Alone

    destroy the auralith? Where is everyone? Lost and alone, Vaan calls out to his
    friends.
    
    31 - Reminiscence
    
    Vaan and his voice fade like illusions, but Penelo and the rest haven't lost
    hope. They brave the silent forest to find their lost friend.
    
    32 - Where the Heart Lies
    
    Reunited with Vaan, the party searches with renewed determination for a way
    home. A strange voice beckons to them, but where does it lead?
    
    33 - Aegyl Uprising
    
    Returning from the World of Illusion, the party is greeted by none other than
    Balthier. Their disagreements set aside, they soon encounter a group of aegyl
    rebels encircling the airship.
    
    34 - An Irresistible Opportunity
    
    The party returns to Ivalice at the behest of Ashe and Basch. Once there, they
    meet an unexpected ally.
    
    35 - The Secluded
    
    The party's investigation into the origins of the Judge of Wings points to
    someone with a fervent interest in the sky pirates' legend of the sky
    continent, but her identity remains a mystery.
    
    36 - Ye Who Rest
    
    The Judge of Wings was sighted in the cold wastes of the Paramina Rift, but
    why has she traveled to this frozen place? What connection does she bar to
    those who rest here?
    
    37 - Last Will and Testament
    
    The search to uncover the mystery of the Cache has led back to where it all
    began. What secret lies locked in the cold stone? The answer waits in a hidden
    chamber of the shattered ruins.
    
    38 - Fighting Back Tears
    
    The map in the ruins showed the way to a hidden village of exiled viera-
    Mydia's home. Following the only clue they have, the party makes for a volcano
    indicated on the map.
    
    39 - Wayward Soul

    Vowing to free the fallen warriors who have stood watch at eternity's gate for
    countless eons, Vaan and his companions make for the seat of Feolthanos's
    power.
    
    42 - Fallacy
    
    Llyud opened his heart and soul to the Eternal, only to be deceived and made
    hollow. Vaan knows there's only one way to restore Llyud's anima, and he must
    seize the chance.
    
    43 The Unconscionable
    
    Over thousands of years the Eternal has become one with the auralith. Devoid
    of emotion and alone, he has stolen the anima of the aegyl across great gulfs
    of time. The beasts at his command know no mercy.
    
    44 - Waiting in the Wings
    
    All feeling burned to cinder in flames of hatred, the Eternal spreads his
    profane wings, becoming a great and terrible Yarhi. The curtain rises on the
    final act of his despotic reign.
    
    45 - The Abyss
    
    Beset on all sides by relentless Yarhi, the party presses forward with renewed
    conviction. There can be no rest until the Eternal is free of the bonds that
    bind him and his people.
    
    46 - Bug Hunt
    
    A colony of antlions infests the peaceful Bosco Pampa. even the aegyl are
    baffled by their sheer number-far more than chance would bring together in one
    place. Could this be the work of sky pirates?
    
    47 - Once Bitten, Twice Shy
    
    Sky pirates stand at the gates of the sacred sunlit shrine, where some aegyl
    have taken refuge. The aegyl must be saved before the sky pirates attack!
    
    48 - Maleficent Mayhem

    sanctuary of quiet worship? Whoever is behind this must be made to pay.
    
    49 - The Scofflaw

    Auracite. Hunt him down and restore peace to the island.

    aegyl to gather treasure for them. Their exploitation must end.
    
    51 - Easier Said Than Done
    
    Alerted to the presence of a precious material at the Fane of Tehp Qul, the
    party moves in to investigate. Tomaj dismisses warnings of monsters in the
    area, but how safe is it?
    
    52 - Harmony in Discord
    
    Unbound Yarhi run rampant in the holy shrine. Are sky pirates behind this
    latest disturbance, or is something else at work? Either way, the Yarhi must
    be stopped.
    
    53 - The Trodden Past
    
    Sky pirates loot and pillage the sacred aegyl ruins on Tormelados. but they
    more than treasure or relics. The long, proud heritage of the aegyl is at
    stake.
    
    54 - A Savory Task
    
    Not all treasures are glit with gold. The skysea holds one such culinary
    treasure. If Penelo's interested, it must be tasty. There's no passing this
    task by.
    
    55 - Rally to the Cause
    
    No sooner is a new shrine found on the shattered skysea than do sky pirates
    move in for the spoils. The aegyl fight to repel them, but are fast losing
    ground. Turn the tide of battle!
    
    56 - Stroke of Luck
    
    Just as Vaan is getting used to crafting weapons with Cu Sith's help, Tomaj
    gets word of a rare material that can be found in the Underfane near the
    broken skysea. Something's off, but Tomaj seems optimistic.
    
    57 - Otherworldly Beauty

    Leviathan, lord of the deep, dwells on this small island adrift in the remains
    of the skysea. His home destroyed, Leviathan's cry echoes in the void, but is

    59 - That Left Behind
    
    Penelo longs to revisit the shores of the desert island. Though she still
    harbors bittersweet memories of Velis, whatever she's left behind on the
    island is important enough for her to return.
    
    60 - Materialistic
    
    Tomaj isn't above groveling when he locates a rare material he's been dying to
    get hold of in the Gugerro Greendeep. He must have his reasons...
    
    61 - The Sword in the Shell
    
    Legend tells of a sword protruding from the back of a plodding beast, and the
    stoneturtle at Gugoza Falls certainly matches the description. What other
    treasures wait beneath the falls?
    
    62 - Rumble in the Jungle
    
    Tremors have become an all-too-frequent occurrence on the deserted island of
    late. The epicenter of the unnatural disasters lies in the rainwood. Perhaps
    answers do as well.

    shelter aboard the Strahl. Defend the aegyl and the ship!

    of tasty foodstuffs offers hope of relief, if the monsters guarding it can be
    defeated.
    
    65 - Incentive

    68 - Destiny in the Stars
    
    Stars rain from the sky near Gugoza Falls, as frightened sky pirates attempt
    to find meaning in the ominous omen. Whispers grow of a scion who plots to
    bring down the heavens and destroy the world below.
    
    69 - Escape Escapade
    
    Rikken and his companions are safe after narrowly escaping the destruction of
    the skysea and crashing in the rainwood. A friendly visit may be in order.
    
    70 - An Uninvited Invitation
    
    A group of bangaa has been stirring up trouble in the Shadow of Paharo. This
    foul business bears all the earmarks of Ba'Gamnan and his cruel companions. Is

    72 - Dalmascan Treasure
    
    Treasure has been found on the clan's very doorstep. Do the desert sands hold
    riches that have gone unnoticed? A treasure hunt trough the Estersand will
    soon tell!
    
    73 - Just for Penelo
    
    Penelo knows her way around a starfruit, and Giza is just the place to get
    them. It may seem a frivolous use of precious time, but a proper feast may
    give the party the edge it needs!
    
    74 - Dance of the Dead
    
    A scion in the Paramina Rift calls forth legions of the dead. Though they are
    loath to tread so close to holy Bur-Omisace, they are powerless to resist
    their master's command. They long only for rest...
    
    75 - Flames of Torment
    
    Rebel aegyl forces seeking revenge on Ivalice have made their base at the foot
    of Roda Volcano. Whatever advantage this choice may give them, their attack
    must be stopped.
    
    76 - Restoring Honor
    
    The Feol viera village lies in ruin, making it a tempting target for beasts
    seeking a place to nest. The viera who died here should be spared this final
    indignity.
    
    77 - Darkening Clouds Gather
    
    A column of water rises where once stood the majestic skysea, radiating thick
    clouds that cast a pall over the surrounding landscape. Is this a scion's
    attempt to shroud the world in darkness?
    
    78 - Masterless Minions
    
    Yarhi pour through the summoning gates unbidden. Why have these unbound beasts
    come to fight?
    
    79 - Wings of Midnight

    are led by a great wyrm the party has encountered once before.
    
    80 - Keeper of Precepts
    
    A scion of peerless strength has waited in the hidden recesses of the keep,
    sealed away by the Eternal for fear of the power it wields. What horrible
    secrets does the lord of the scions hold?
    
    81 - Battle on the Big Bridge
    
    Could it be? Is this ancient man of mystery come again? Someone walks the
    bridge at the Gates of Shattered Time...
    Hold fast to your swords.
