Game Script

Dynamis - The Shrouded Land (pt.1) - Xarcabard
Raogrimm: Player name...

Now that I have passed from the mortal realm, I have only you to turn to.
The time left to me is short.

Raogrimm: Thirty years ago, I came into contact with the insidious power of this land, and rose from the grave. However, at the same time, this world laid claim to a part of my soul...

Raogrimm: I have been released from the hate that consumed me, but the half of my soul that was taken captive all those years ago is calling to me...
It has become a towering darkness. A raging hatred, spawned from the depths of my being...

Raogrimm: Very soon I will be drawn into that soul. I no longer have the strength to resist. The soul that was divided will become whole once more, and that rage will take on physical form.

Raogrimm: A new Shadow Lord will be born. Surely you have sensed the growing evil? The beastman armies that are imprisoned here are massing for battle. They plan a return to the world of their origin, the realm that exists beneath the light of hope.

Raogrimm: My link to you will soon be severed, so listen carefully.
Thirty years ago, an expeditionary squad formed from the elite soldiers of each nation was sent to investigate the Northlands. You must have seen their memories when you first laid your hand upon the chunks of magicite.

Raogrimm: Seek out the markings that the expedition members left behind. They will aid you in gaining entrance to this world.
You must defeat the Shadow Lord before our unification is complete.
My hopes go with you, Player name.

Dynamis - The Shrouded Land (pt.1)
Cornelia: I see you have met with Raogrimm. His soul is no longer confined to that incarnation of rage, the Shadow Lord, yet the fact remains that he has committed sins beyond redemption.

Cornelia: In spite of those sins, I still wish to rescue him from the darkness. I no longer have a mortal body with which to act, and so the most I can do is guide you in my stead.

Cornelia: You will need the Timeless Hourglass, a key that bridges the void between Vana'diel and that other world.

Cornelia: It is said that there are items in this world that gain a soul of their own through contact with the thoughts and dreams of other living creatures. The Timeless Hourglass is one of those items.

Cornelia: You must look for the Goblin peddlers. They are certain to have knowledge of the Timeless Hourglass . When you have it safely within your grasp, seek out the markings that we left behind...

Dynamis - The Shrouded Land (pt.2) - Ru'Lude Gardens
Cornelia: That world is a land now draped in the blackest night. We can pass from one world to the other, but without the physical forms lost to us thirty years ago, there is little we can do to intervene.

Cornelia: Raogrimm is the one who... No, the world has been divided into separate realms through the machinations of the new Shadow Lord.

Cornelia: The Shadow Lord resides in the Xarcabard of the other reality. However, I fear you would be marching to your death should you go to confront him... I ask you to first obtain trophies from four of the alternate realms.

Cornelia: We understand that there is little time to spare. But without a certain degree of power, it will be impossible to traverse the land the Shadow Lord holds in thrall. Show me your strength with the four trophies you bring back.

Cornelia: Those whose fate is linked to his world will empower the Timeless Hourglass to guide you...

Yow Rabntah: Humes and Galka have never been the best of friends. I used to think that was just the way it was, and always would be.

Yow Rabntah: I figured I'd be causing myself grrrief if I stuck my whiskers into other nation' problems. My next catnap was all that mattered to me in those days. Ignorrrance is bliss, as they say.

Yow Rabntah: Responsibility for Raogrimm's trrransformation lies with all of us who traveled with him on that expedition. By sharing the blame for the crimes he committed as the Shadow Lord, we can finally call ourselves his trrrue companions.

Yow Rabntah: Let me help you on your path. May guiding light fill this perpetual hourglass! Raogrimm's fate is in your hands.

Dynamis Interloper - Ru'Lude Gardens
Yow Rabntah: The beastmen of that world carry the spoils of prrrevious battles. Equipment that either you or I would use.

Yow Rabntah: I'm not able to touch them in my present form, but I feel something about those weapons and armor...something extrrraordinary.

Yow Rabntah: Wait, wait, wait! I don't mean that they're currrsed or anything like that! It's something more like, um, not ominous, but... How can I explain it?

Yow Rabntah: Anyway! They're not evil, just...you know? Different from other normal swords and things. Being all ghostlike and stuff, you can feel things like that.

Yow Rabntah: But enough of that kind of talk--congrrratulations are in order! You've got your paws on the Hydra Corps Tactical Map! It shows you've got the goods in the hero department, and it will also help you get into Xarcabard.

Yow Rabntah: But first you've got to collect the other three trophies and then hightail it to snowy Beaucedine Glacier. Cornelia should be up there waiting for you.

Dynamis - The Shrouded Land (pt.2) - Windurst Walls
Cornelia: That world is a land now draped in the blackest night. We can pass from one world to the other, but without the physical forms lost to us thirty years ago, there is little we can do to intervene.

Cornelia: Raogrimm is the one who... No, the world has been divided into separate realms through the machinations of the new Shadow Lord.

Cornelia: Those whose fate is linked to his world will empower the Timeless Hourglass to guide you...

Iru-Kuiru: Our expedition was supposed to have been an allied effortaru, but not one of us was interested in the fate of the other nations. In our hasty-waste to outdo each other, we failed to see the heart of the mattaru.

Iru-Kuiru: Our attitudes led to the death of two of our members, and precipitated the birth of the Shadow Lord... This sin does not belong on Raogrimm's shoulders alone. We all mustaru atone for our actions.

Iru-Kuiru: Please help him. Help Raogrimm escape from his horrid-worrid darkness, forever this time.

Dynamis Interloper - Windurst Walls
Iru-Kuiru: What is the true nature of that other world? I can only explain it as a place that lies beyond the limitarus of our knowlege. But I'm sure I've feltaru that aura somewhere before...

Iru-Kuiru: That's it. The protocrystal I came across when I was doing research in Elshimo. The magical emanations coming from the crystal gave me a similar impression. An avatar? No, that can'taru be...

Iru-Kuiru: Oh! Oh, I'm terribly-werribly sorry! I appear to have driftarued into my old habits.

Iru-Kuiru: Now, (player name). This Hydra Corps Lantern is both a symbol of your fortitude, and one of the keys that will help you gain access to Xarcabard. The trophies from the other three realms carry the same importance.

Iru-Kuiru: Gather all four trophies and hurry yourself on to Beaucedine Glacier. Cornelia will be waiting for you when you get there. But be wary, (player name). The blackness enveloping that world grows ever deeper, ever darker...

Dynamis - The Shrouded Land (pt.2) - Bastok Mines
Cornelia: That world is a land now draped in the blackest night. We can pass from one world to the other, but without the physical forms lost to us thirty years ago, there is little we can do to intervene.

Cornelia: Raogrimm is the one who... No, the world has been divided into separate realms through the machinations of the new Shadow Lord.

Cornelia: Those whose fate is linked to his world will empower the Timeless Hourglass to guide you...

Ulrich: I betrayed him... And now I am needed, the one who cut down poor Cornelia. The man cursed with the brand of traitor...

Ulrich: Sure, I got everything I wanted, but what was left to me in the end? For one rash action, all I gained was an empty title and irreconcilable guilt...

Ulrich: I doubt you'll listen to the words of a traitor, but please, help free him from the bonds of his eternal night...

Dynamis Interloper - Bastok Mines
Ulrich: I don't know about the other four, but I can't hear his voice anymore...

Ulrich: Is this another brand I must bear for my treachery? I must truly be hated if that's the case.

Ulrich: It is something I would wish for at the moment, however. I pray this silence is just a continuation of our incompatible personalities. If not, then it means his pronouncement has become reality...

Ulrich: Hydra Corps Eyeglass. This is more than just a testament to your strength. It is one of the keys that will lead you to Xarcabard, along with the trophies of the other realms.

Ulrich: When you have all four trophies, travel to Beaucedine Glacier in the Northlands. You will find Cornelia waiting for you there. That is all the wisdom I have left to give you.

Dynamis - The Shrouded Land (pt.2) - Southern San d'Oria
Cornelia: That world is a land now draped in the blackest night. We can pass from one world to the other, but without the physical forms lost to us thirty years ago, there is little we can do to intervene.

Cornelia: Raogrimm is the one who... No, the world has been divided into separate realms through the machinations of the new Shadow Lord.

Cornelia: The Shadow Lord resides in the Xarcabard of the other reality. However, I fear you would be marching to your death should you go to confront him... I ask you to first obtain trophies from four of the alternate realms.

Cornelia: We understand that there is little time to spare. But without a certain degree of power, it will be impossible to traverse the land the Shadow Lord holds in thrall. Show me your strength with the four trophies you bring back.

Cornelia: Those whose fate is linked to his world will empower the Timeless Hourglass to guide you...

Francmage: I never believed that my indifference to the state of other nations would cause harm to my beloved San d'Oria...

Francmage: As part of my penance, I will infuse the perpetual hourglass with what guidance I can.

Dynamis Interloper - Southern San d'Oria
Francmage: Death does not exist in that realm. You might call it a "prison of souls."

Francmage: Even those who fall in battle will rise after a time as if nothing had happened. Like a flame returning to a candle whose light has been extinguished...

Francmage: It is an endless succession of life and death. How many times has that cycle repeated itself in that damned abode?

Francmage: There is one thing that bothers me. Whatever happened to the original wielders of the weapons and armor that beastmen there now possess? If the statues in the shape of Orcs and such were once actual beastmen then...? But I get carried away with my musings.

Francmage: Please pay no mind to my ramblings. You have secured the Hydra Corps Command Scepter. An incredible feat. It proves the strength of your conviction, and is one of the keys you will need to enter Xarcabard.

Francmage: You will need four such trophies. Once you have them in your grasp, make your way to Beaucedine Glacier in the Northlands. Cornelia awaits you there.

Dynamis - The Shrouded Land - Beaucedine Glacier
Cornelia: I have been waiting for you.

Cornelia: Do you remember the last words Raogrimm spoke to you? "The link will soon be severed...." Do you understand the significance of these words?

Cornelia: When the soul that was divided is whole once again, towering rage will take on physical form... Yes, a new Shadow Lord will be born. Even I will no longer hear his voice.

Cornelia: Even now, I can barely feel the emanations of Raogrimm's faltering spirit. When those emanations fade completely, he will be...

Cornelia: The Xarcabard of the other realm is shrouded in a vast darkness, preventing contact from the outside. Even those of us without material bodies are unable to penetrate that mist of eternal night.

Cornelia: Until that mist clears, I cannot guide you to Xarcabard. The next place you must venture is the twin of Vana'diel's Beaucedine. There you will find the last trophy to complete the set of keys we need.

Cornelia: You must obtain the last trophy. All five trophies combined with our power will create a synergistic force, allowing us to part the shroud or a few precious moments. It will open a path between worlds.

Cornelia: Take care, my brave adventurer. May the blessings of Altana guide and protect you...

Dynamis Interloper - Beaucedine Glacier
Cornelia: Hydra Corps Insignia and the four trophies. These artifacts have long been lost to that other world. The Hydra Corps was a unit formed after our expedition to the Northlands.

Cornelia: It must have been in the time of the Great War... Nobody knows how the Hydra artifacts came to be there, but those five trophies will open the path for you.

Cornelia: Each of these items holds a measure of power. However, the strength of a single artifact is limited.

Cornelia: The timeless hourglass and the vial of shrouded sand. Combining these separate entities created a bridge from Vana'diel to the other realms. Xarcabard, I'm afraid, is another matter entirely...

Cornelia: Unless the shroud of darkness is lifted, that power alone will not be enough to open the way. However, the five trophies resonate with another artifact that lies within his land. If we can join our strength to theirs...

Cornelia: Let us make haste to the land where this all began. To Xarcabard...

Dynamis - The Shrouded Land (pt.2) - Xarcabard
Cornelia: Even after the blackest night, the golden sun always rises to begin a new morning.

This troubled land will soon have its dawn...of that I am certain.

Francmage: I never thought to walk this land again, not even in death.
Is this what they call karma...?

Ulrich: This land has borne the weight of my sins.
I will not beg for forgiveness, but accept my responsibility...

Iru-Kuiru: So this is the reason for that unspeakable terror I feltaru here when I was still alive. It's possible that the other realm has existed for much longer than anyone ever dreamed...
Keep your wits aboutaru you, Player name.

Yow Rabntah: I'm not rrreally fond of touching platitudes.
Snap Raogrimm to his senses with a big ol' smack to the head for me.

Cornelia: It is time!
Put an end to this thirty-year nightmare, Player name.
Perpetual hourglass! Show us the path to Xarcabard!

Dynamis Interloper - Xarcabard
Cornelia: Is it over...?

Raogrimm: No, the rage has merely been dispersed.

Raogrimm: As long as I exist, he will never truly die...

Raogrimm: Or perhaps an eternal soul is something beyond the concept of death?

Raogrimm: Player name...
You have achieved an incredible feat--the unification of the Shadow Lord has been prevented.
I have not the words to express my gratitude.

Raogrimm: The power of the crystal has faded, but I will be drawn into that towering rage no more.
I have heard the voice of the one who holds sway over this realm...

Cornelia: The one who holds sway...?

Raogrimm: Yes. From the center of infinite darkness.
I was in a place beyond comprehension when those words reached into my mind...

???: You who have touched the crystal, the one who holds immortal power within a mortal shell.
The rage that has arisen from your twisted core will devour my world.

???: It was an error in judgment to shelter you...
The order of my realm has been disrupted.

???: I give to you a duty...
You will stand vigil until an age without hatred has dawned.

???: No matter what terrible power you might wield, there is no escape from Dynamis for an incomplete soul.
No return to the land of blessed light...

Raogrimm: What manner of being was this who spoke from a pit of blackness?
As this question gnawed at my mind, the voice grew quiet, leaving me in unanswered silence.

Raogrimm: Of one thing I was certain.
This voice belonged to the ruler of Dynamis.

Raogrimm: A flow of energy exists in Vana'diel that has escaped the notice of those who dwell there.

Raogrimm: Thirty years past, my contact with the crystal caused an accelerated change in this flow.
It was if it had leapt forward, rushing along a deliberate course.

Raogrimm: Nobody knows what lies at the end of this journey.
Perhaps it will reveal the true nature of Vana'diel.

Raogrimm: Player name, you may be the one to witness this truth.

Raogrimm: The power stored in the perpetual hourglass will soon be drained.
And I must remain in this world in my role of observer.

Raogrimm: Do not forget who you are, Player name.
I bid farewell to a most heroic adventurer.

Raogrimm: My old companions...?

Francmage: This duty is too much for just one to bear.
If you will have me, I will stand at your side until an age without hatred has arrived.
It pains me to see the depths to which my country has fallen.

Francmage: That is my only reason for staying. Do not misunderstand my motivations.

Iru-Kuiru: Blessed light and the ruler of Dynamis?
I do believe you've rekindled my long-forgotten sense of adventure.

Iru-Kuiru: Once I've gotten all firedy-up, even you don'taru keep me back, Raogrimm.
I'm sure my incomparable research skills will be of use in your task.

Yow Rabntah: C'mon, let's see a little excitement!
This is our expedition's thirty-year rrreunion.

Yow Rabntah: It's not the Northlands this time.
None of us are going to grow old and die, so who else would you want with you on a task as long as this one?

Yow Rabntah: I'm not gonna back down, no matterrr how much you complain.
Better just give in and accept the fact that you're stuck with me.

Ulrich: I thought this would be the end of you for sure...
Hmph. You're just as thick-skinned as you used to be.

Ulrich: What, no words for an old friend?
Thinking about testing your theory on whether or not a soul can be killed?

Ulrich: I betrayed you!
I extinguished the light of your precious Cornelia!
The man responsible for this entire nightmare stands right before you!

Raogrimm: Everything began thirty years ago.
And there were things that came to an end...
Even though I was a prisoner of uncontrollable rage, the fact remains that I took the lives of my companions with my own hands.

Raogrimm: And yet, my old companions, you are the ones who have saved me from falling into that pit of hatred a second time.

Raogrimm: I have words of gratitude, but do not stand in a position to blame anyone for their actions.

Cornelia: Raogrimm...

Raogrimm: Are you sure you want to do this?
This duty will continue until hatred has faded from the land.
As long as my divided soul remains, there may never be an end to that rage...

Cornelia: Raogrimm.
There is no need to suffer alone anymore.
Our presence here should answer your question.

Cornelia: There are crimes that must be atoned for.
And if that means staying on after death and watching over this world, then we who were your companions will share the burden along with you.

Cornelia: Until the dawn of an age without hatred...
No, as long as this world continues to be, I will remain by your side.

Raogrimm: Cornelia...

Diabolos: I see that you have gathered three slivers of black crystal...

Diabolos: The Emptiness is sealed inside of them. Those are no mere fragments.

Diabolos: Those pieces of crystal have led you to this place...
The source of this nightmare is near. I can feel the dreamer's presence.

Diabolos: The entrance to the dream has already been opened.
Find and destroy the source if you wish to protect my realm.

Dynamis - Tavnazian Safehold
Diabolos: The shadow that you defeated had been consumed by the dreamer of this realm.

Diabolos: It seems that this nightmare was dreamt into existence by beings who have come into contact with the Emptiness.

Diabolos: You know this girl well. I could take care of her easily, but if you wish me to spare her, then you will lend me your power.

Diabolos: Her malice will not perish as long as this dream continues, using my shadows to revive countless times.

Diabolos: You must confront the nightmare and continue to fight them to keep this realm from spreading.
