Game Script

Foiled Ambition - Aht Urhgan Whitegate
Karababa: Ohohohohohoho!

Karababa: You've nothing left to prove!
It's time for me to make my move.

Naja Salaheem: Thank you, Ambassador.

Naja Salaheem: I grrreatly appreciate your stance as a woman of action!

Abquhbah: I've never seen anyone enjoy chatting with President Naja quite so much before.
(Why do I feel a chill down my spine...?)

Naja Salaheem: How absolutely wonderful.

Naja Salaheem: A branch office in the Middle Lands!

Naja Salaheem: And with the Star Sibyl's approval!

Karababa: Oh, don't give me all the credit.

Karababa: Player name's performance in the Execution Chamber convinced me of your company's merit.

Karababa: And with mercenaries such as these wandering the street,
our lackluster Mithra soldiers will learn to stop dragging their feet.

Karababa: (Though he/she was nothing more than a wall,
to prevent me from taking any damage at all...)

Naja Salaheem: Of course, of course!

Naja Salaheem: And you know, this mercenary is merely the tip of the iceberg for the talent we have here at Salaheem's Sentinels. Ohohohoho.

Karababa: What is your proposal?
How will you run this venture with the resources at your disposal?

Naja Salaheem: Well, we'll have to start with choosing a location, designing the offices, hiring staff...

Abquhbah: Um, President...

Naja Salaheem: ...ordering weapons, training the troops, negotiating with the Federation Army...

Abquhbah: President Naja!

Naja Salaheem: What!? Can't a girrrl plan in peace!?

Abquhbah:'s a lot of work...

Abquhbah: I wonder if Ibwam will be able to handle everything over there by himself...

Naja Salaheem: Hm...
You're rrright...

Naja Salaheem: Hm...

Naja Salaheem: Hmmm...

Karababa: Ohoho. You seem to have encountered a snag.

Karababa: I do hate when things like this start to drag.

Karababa: Abquhbah!!!

Abquhbah: Y-yes, ma'am!

Karababa: How many people do you have working here?
And tell me their registration numbers, would you, my dear?

Abquhbah: Um...that...that information is confidential, you see...

Karababa: Quickly, now!
Surely you don't intend to make an ambassador scrape and bow?

Abquhbah: Oh poor heart...
Please remember, this is top secret...

Abquhbah: <Whisper, whisper>...

Karababa: Oho! So many?

Karababa: (And what is the number of my shield, pray tell me?)

Abquhbah: Oh, that would be...
<Whisper, whisper>...

Karababa: Such an easy number to recall...

Karababa: I have no more reason to stall...

Karababa: Using the employee registration numbers, I will attempt
to divine who is "it" and who is exempt.

Naja Salaheem: !?

Naja Salaheem: A divination...?

Karababa: That's correct.
It's an ancient Windurstian art with results that are near perfect...

Karababa: This song will choose the person you need,
with amazing accuracy and surprising speed.

Karababa: Eenie, meenie, minie, moe...

Karababa: Catch a tiger by the toe...

Karababa: If he hollers, let him go...

Karababa: Cast the spell and...

Karababa: will know!

Karababa: And there it is!
The registration number of who'll become your business whiz!

Naja Salaheem: A-and...who is it, Ambassador?

Naja Salaheem: Who is the lucky mercenary?

Karababa: Ohoho...

Abquhbah: (The suspense is killing me...)

Karababa: <Whisper, whisper, whisper>...

Naja Salaheem: Oh!?
That number belongs to...

Naja Salaheem: ...Player name!!!

Abquhbah: (I knew it...)

Naja Salaheem: I should've guessed...

Karababa: Oho. Are you sure this mercenary
can handle such a huge responsibility?

Naja Salaheem: Hm? Oh, I'm sure he'll/she'll be fine...

Naja Salaheem: The mercenary you rrrefer to as your shield is our number-one ace...

Naja Salaheem: Even the Emprrress has granted him/her an audience...

Karababa: !?

King of Hearts: Is aN*EmPResS hiGHeR*rAnK tHaN*a kiNg?

King of Hearts: And yOU*saY tHiS*meRceNarY iS*aN "aCe"?

King of Hearts: ThiS*caNnOT bE!!!

Karababa: An audience with the Empress. How impressive.
If you relate that story, you'll find me quite attentive...

Aphmau: Ovjang...!

Mnejing: Where has she gone...?

Mnejing: What could she be doing...?

Mnejing: Who do I turn to...?

Mnejing: Who do I trust...?

Mnejing: What do we do...?

Mnejing: Ovjang...

Mnejing: Tell me...

Naja Salaheem: Yes, once everyone heard the story, the applications have just been rrrolling in.

Abquhbah: (And President Naja made sure everyone heard the story...)

Naja Salaheem: And it's all thanks to Player name here.

Naja Salaheem: So you see, sending him/her off to a foreign land would be like losing an arm.

Naja Salaheem: It would brrreak my heart to see Player name go...

Naja Salaheem: But if he/she was willing to expand the company and build a new office in Windurst--

Karababa: Oho! I understand the point of your speech.

Karababa: Who would have guessed that the Empress was within Player name's reach?

Naja Salaheem: Huh?
Well, yes.
I, too, was rrrather impressed.

Karababa: Player name's value in this land is beyond calculation.

Naja Salaheem: I...yes...huh?

Karababa: Ohohoho.
I would never wish to damage your solid foundation.

Karababa: I must rethink this offer of an office in our land.

Naja Salaheem: What!?

Karababa: Why, didn't you dismiss it yourself out of hand?

Karababa: Losing Player name would be like the loss of a limb.
I couldn't deprive you of that on a whim.

Naja Salaheem: No, no, I was just being--

King of Hearts: I HaVe*yoUR RefuSaL*sToRed iN mY*meMoRY BaNks!

Naja Salaheem: Just a...
Now hold on there...

Karababa: Such a shame. I envisioned your company protecting our nation...

Karababa: Salaheem's Sentinels would have been our salvation...

Karababa: But I would never dream of ruining your bond.
That couldn't be fixed by just waving a wand.

King of Hearts: LaDy*KaRabAbA!
YoUR coMpaSsioN*kNoWs nO*boUNdS!

Naja Salaheem: Ambassador...
You don't mean to tell me our deal is off...?

Karababa: We must shift our planning back to square one.

Naja Salaheem: !!!

Karababa: Now we really must go. Our business is done!

Naja Salaheem: Just a damn minute!

Karababa: We have a banquet to attend--no time for further delay.

Karababa: The Grand Vizier is not a man I wish to dismay...

Naja Salaheem: !!!

King of Hearts: YeS!
ArRiviNG*LatE woULd bE*a teRRibLe iNSuLt!

Naja Salaheem: ...

Karababa: So very true.
Once again, my good people, I bid you adieu!

Abquhbah: (Oh dear, oh dear...)

Naja Salaheem: ...

Naja Salaheem: ...

Naja Salaheem: ...

Naja Salaheem: Abquhbah!!!

Abquhbah: Y-yes, ma'am!

Naja Salaheem: Get a bag of simsim.
Throw 'em all along this line!
Without a break!

Abquhbah: Y-yes, ma'am!

Naja Salaheem: Hm?

Naja Salaheem: Well, well, well.
If it ain't Assault rank Player name.

Naja Salaheem: Looks like ya did a fine job of guidin' and guardin'.

Naja Salaheem: Ya heard the ambassador singin' your prrraises, didn't ya?

Naja Salaheem: Ya must be thrrrilled.

Naja Salaheem: And I suppose you're expectin' the same sorta gushin' compliments from your prrresident, hm?

Naja Salaheem: Well, it ain't gonna happen!

Naja Salaheem: I can't even stand to look at your smug face rrright now!!!

Naja Salaheem: Get outta my office and outta my sight!

Naja Salaheem: Or I'll tenderrrize your hide and have mercenary steaks for dinner!
