Flames in the Darkness - Misareaux Coast Tenzen: So the Emptiness has now devoured Hakutei River...
???: With the waters gone, bandit tribes have little trouble staging raids across the border.
Our empire's defenses are crumbling.
???: Lord Tenzen, your blade knows no equal.
I beg of you to return and lead our soldiers into battle.
Tenzen: But my guiding flame has been extinguished...
???: We are aware of your situation.
However, the emperor will grant you his forgiveness.
???: You need only conquer the barbarians that mass against us, and reignite the Phoenix Blade upon their flesh.
Tenzen: And if that is not enough?
???: Then it will be time to undertake our most desperate plan.
Based on your information, we will invade the city of Jeuno.
???: Liberating the mothercrystals is the only way to stem the tide of Emptiness.
Tenzen: You speak truly.
And yet I cannot return to our country.
Not until I carry out the final duty entrusted to me by the noble Phoenix.
???: Final duty...?
Tenzen: When the Phoenix Blade released its energy to shield us from Bahamut, I could hear every single voice.
Tenzen: The voices of all the children who, in my weakness, I failed to save.
Tenzen: If I betray them here, it will be an unforgivable insult to their faith in me.
I must strive until the end, with the very last spark of this life I have pledged.
Tenzen: I will secure the safety of the mothercrystals upon which rests the fate of Vana'diel...
???: Understood, Lord Tenzen.
Your words will be relayed.
Player name, I did not see you.
Are you alone?
Tenzen: I, too, have found myself alone.
Tenzen: These sudden separations are truly a lonely experience, don't you agree?
Tenzen: Phoenix has ordered me to lead you to the fifth mothercrystal.
Tenzen: And we must hurry.
Tenzen: There is little remaining of the time her sacrifice has bought us.
Tenzen: Let us board the airship for Jeuno.
Flames in the Darkness - Sealion's Den Sueleen: You just missed them!
Not more than a couple of minutes ago, an airship from Jeuno came and took Prishe and her friends away.
Sueleen: Ulmia said that they should wait for you, but Prishe said you'd find your own way back to the mainland...so they left.
Sueleen: I wonder if that means they'll be sending another ship...
Sueleen: If that's the case, those three Tarutaru should have waited instead of hiding away in those barrels.
Flames in the Darkness - Ru'Lude Gardens Wolfgang: Player name!
It appears you caught up with the armada.
Wolfgang: I heard the report.
The attack against Bahamut failed, but we have dealt him a critical blow.
Wolfgang: Lady Esha'ntarl is to join the main fleet and lead our forces in a mass assault.
Wolfgang: She mentioned that she would like to meet with you all before the attack commences.
You are to meet her for a confidential briefing in the tavern in Upper Jeuno.
Wolfgang: Do not keep Lady Esha'ntarl waiting.
May victory in battle be yours.
Flames in the Darkness - Upper Jeuno Mildaurion: I am glad to see that you have all survived unscathed.
Shikaree Z: You...!
Jabbos: You are...the priest...!?
Mildaurion: Nice to see you both again after so long.
Mildaurion: It's been twenty years since I've seen you, Shikaree Z.
And a hundred years for you, Jabbos, if I'm not mistaken.
Mildaurion: And you, the man of extraordinary luck.
Louverance: I am most delighted to be in you presence once more, Cardinal Mildaurion.
Mildaurion: I would love to celebrate this long overdue reunion; however, now is not the time.
Mildaurion: Lord Bahamut has revealed to us an unsettling truth--the Keeper of the Apocalypse waits in the celestial captial of Al'Taieu.
Mildaurion: Until now, the Armathrwn Society had believed the city of Al'Taieu destroyed.
Mildaurion: Judging by the counsel of the terrestrial avatars and the memories of Selh'teus, however, we can assume that the celestial capital still exists.
Mildaurion: The society is now focused on gaining further information.
To this end, the objective of our next operation is to capture--not kill--Lord Bahamut.
Mildaurion: I, Esha'ntarl, will join the main fleet of warships and head once more to the ends of the earth.
Mildaurion: But there is another important matter that requires our immediate attention--a matter involving the fifth mothercrystal.
Mildaurion: Someone has apparently severed the fifth crystal from the Crystal Line.
Louverance: When the boy, Selh'teus, appeared, was not this Crystal Line the conduit he traversed with Lord Bahamut?
Prishe: Just a damn moment!
So now we can't use this pipeline gizmo to get to the fifth mothercrystal!?
Prishe: How are we supposed to get to Al'Taieu and wipe the floor with the Keeper of the Apocalypse!?
Tenzen: How, indeed.
In any event, we must search for an alternative route now that Phoenix is no longer with us.
Shikaree Z: Wait.
Mildaurion, you mentioned that "someone" isolated the fifth mothercrystal?
Shikaree Z: Who is rrresponsible for this act of sabotage?
Mildaurion: I do not know.
The only people capable of such a feat would be either Selh'teus, or Nag'molada...
Mildaurion: I currently have Jeunoan troops preparing to invade Movalpolos.
Jabbos: The Moblins...are in danger...!?
Louverance: Jabbos has spent a century living with the Moblins in an effort to avert this sort of development.
Louverance: This is most worrisome. I shall follow him and see he does not come to harm.
Shikaree Z: I will accompany you!
Mildaurion: I realize that Jabbos has tried for years to convince the Moblins that they are not the children of Promathia.
Mildaurion: But for the sake of the mothercrystal, the Moblins cannot be left to their own devices.
Mildaurion: If he fails to persuade them otherwise, they may attempt to destroy the fifth crystal.
Tenzen: Destroy the crystal!?
Mildaurion: The mothercrystal is at both the beginning and the end of a person's journey in this life.
Mildaurion: After learning this fact from Jabbos, the Moblins now believe that destroying the mothercrystal will spell the end for the children of Altana.
Ulmia: How could Jabbos fail to mention something so important!?
Prishe: He had no choice.
If that kinda thing became public knowledge, Movalpolos would be gutted and all the Moblins slaughtered.
Prishe: Miss Mildaurion.
I'm not in a position to be giving advice to a ten thousand-year-old, but just hear me out.
Prishe: Killing every last Moblin might make this mess all nice and neat, but it's not what I'd call a solution.
Prishe: Isn't this the exact thing that Bahamut is trying to do?
Mildaurion: You are right...
Nothing good can come of this...
Mildaurion: I will plead with the Armathrwn Society to find a peaceable solution to this problem.
Prishe: Thanks, Miss Mildaurion!
Mildaurion: But from this point onward I will be joining the society to monitor its actions.
Mildaurion: My movements will be limited, but rest assured that I will be watching over you always.
Now go, my brave companions. The fate of the world and her people is in your hands.
Ulmia, Tenzen, Player name!
On to Movalpolos!
Prishe: Everyone who wants to scrap it out for the ultimate victory, follow me!!!
Flames in the Darkness - Upper Jeuno Jabbos: Swipostik!
Prishe: Whoa, hold on, Jabbo-man!
They didn't do squat!
Kukki-Chebukki: He did it!
Makki-Chebukki: He's a bad, bad man!
Makki-Chebukki: He's a bad, bad man!
Ulmia: It is all right, children. Prishe and I are here now. We will not allow Nag'molada to harm you.
Prishe: Come out, you lousy rat! Come out and fight like a man!
Tenzen: They're still alive!
Come, give me a hand!
Prishe: I'm really sorry, Jabbos. It's all my fault. If I hadn't told Nag'molada about Movalpolos, none of this would have happened.
Prishe: I should have known that creep would do something this low...
Jabbos: You...knew that...he was planning...to call forth...the Wyrmking...
Jabbos: You were only...trying to stop...him...
Ulmia: According to the Tarutaru, Nag'molada disappeared down the path the Moblins cleared for Selh'teus.
Louverance: However, it seems as if he caused a cave-in to prevent us from following him...
Louverance: The Moblins' wounds are severe. It would be impossible for them to aid us in clearing the tunnel...
Shikaree Z: He missed their vital organs on purpose.
He knew exactly what he was doing. Nag'molada is toying with us...
I will not...forgive...him for what...he has done to...my friends...
Nag'molada...you won't get...away...
Prishe: Hold on!
Shikaree Z: What do you think you are doing!?
Jabbos: What...does it...look like...!?
Jabbos: When I'm...through with him...he'll know...the meaning...of pain!
Louverance: Calm down, my friend. We all understand how you feel, but you will never be able to clear this tunnel by yourself.
Jabbos: But if I...don't...who...will...?
Prishe: Dammit! What in Altana's name are we supposed to do now, huh!?
Tenzen: No matter the hardship, there will always be a path lighted for the righteous.
Tenzen: When the land no longer gives an answer, we must look to the heavens for guidance.
Tenzen: Phoenix will be our guiding light. She will show us the way.
Tenzen: I do not know how, and I do not know when, but I know she will...
Ulmia: Look to the heavens...?
Could the path we are searching for...be located in the heavens?
Prishe: Well, there you go! If pushin' gets you nowhere, start pullin'! THat's what I always say!
Prishe: C'mon! Let's go see our buddy Cid. He'll help us out!
Prishe: Jabbos! If you really want to get some revenge, stop your whinin' and come with us!
