Script

Journey Abroad - San d'Orian Gate Guard
San d'Orian Gate Guard : Oh, it's you, Player Name. And at just the right time, too. Monarlais Halver is looking for an adventurer such as yourself.

San d'Orian Gate Guard : That is all. You'll take the mission then?

San d'Orian Gate Guard : Enter Chateau d'Oraguille. Monarlais Halver is there; he'll explain in person.

Journey Abroad - Chateau d'Oraguille
Halver : Ah, you are Player Name, are you not? I've heard word of you from the gatehouse. We've got a mission for you--a special mission.

Halver : Our scouts say that beastmen are rising again... Not just here, but in lands abroad. We want you to go to Bastok and Windurst and see how they fare.

Halver : While there, you can be recognized by both nations, with an Adventurer's Certificate. Not a bad deal, is it?

Halver : I hereby order you on official business. Visit the two countries of Bastok and Windurst, and receive recognition as an adventurer.

Halver : Here is a letter of introduction to the consulates of San d'Oria. Just hand it to the consul, and they'll know what to do with you.

Halver : The consulate will give you further orders. Once both countries have given you official recognition, come back here. I will issue you your Adventurer's Certificate.

Halver : This will be your first journey abroad, Player Name, no? None can tell what adventures await. Take care, and come home safe.

Bastok -> Windurst

Journey Abroad - Metalworks
Savae E Paleade : Ah, you're here on a mission, aren't you? We've been expecting you. It's good to see you made it here safely.

Savae E Paleade : Riault, if you please.

Riault : Yes, ma'am. First, let me tell you about Bastok's current state.

Riault : Bastok has already lost several major assets to the Quadav. The Palborough Mines were the greatest loss.

Riault : Their recent plight is akin to ours in our fight against the Orcs. Only in the time prior to the Great War did the power balance shift so.

Chantain : I've heard a rumor that they are rallying behind a new leader! Can you believe it? Beastmen, being organized!?

Chantain : This bodes ill, I tell you. What's worse, we are stuck here in this city of uncouth ruffians!

Savae E Paleadee : Chantain! That is enough. Riault, please continue.

Riault : You mission is to go to the Palborough Mines, currently under Quadav control, and take a sample of the dwindling resource called mythril.

Riault : To be precise, we need you to bring back an onz of mythril sand.

Riault : Thanks to our agreement to mutual cooperation, Bastok is allowing us to send you into the mines. Your true objective is to gather as much information as possible on Bastok's advanced technology.

Savae E Paleade : If it were up to us, we would want you to go to the mines right away, but we were told by the Bastok authorities that you must report to them first in order to receive authorization.

Savae E Paleade : I know you'd rather do without all the red tape, but bear with us and report to the Bastokan official named Pius. He can be found in the President's Office.

Savae E Paleade : I must warn you that we thought the Humes were a reasonable people before we came here...but we've found that this is not always the case.

Savae E Paleade : Their talent at making profit is incomparable, but their sense of duty is somewhat lacking. In fact, even their officials can be troublesome. For the sake of your mission's success, try to be patient.

Journey Abroad - Metalworks
Pius : Yes, what is it? Ah, you are the envoy from San d'Oria.

Pius : Go speak to a Galka named Grohm--he was part of the expedition that tried to reclaim the Palborough Mines from the Quadav once before. He should be in the Craftmen's Eatery in the Metalworks.

Pius : Why are you still here? The Musketeers are usually charged with giving out missions, and frankly, I find this kind of work tedious...

Pius : But since you are the envoy, you are under my jurisdiction. Still, I can't help but wonder what you San d'Orians' true motives are...

Pius : Then again, you're going willingly into that Quadav-ridden place, so I can't complain, even if you do turn out to be a spy.

Pius : Well, anyway... Your want to speak to Grohm, in the Metalworks eatery. Good luck to you.

Pius : Oh, and when you're done with your investigation, report directly to your consulate. That is our protocol. I would be rather annoyed if you were to come back here.

Journey Abroad - Metalworks
Grohm : Hm? What do you want? Hey, you're not from Bastok, are you?

Grohm : What!? You're San d'Orian, and you listened to what a Bastokan official told you to do?

Grohm : Hah! I have no idea why that Hume sent you here...or why your consulate sent you to him in the first place.

Grohm : You better listen good. A lot of us died trying to win the Palborough Mines back from the Quadav...

Grohm : It might not matter to a foreigner like you, but they always send us Galka to do the dirty work!

Grohm : What gets me the most is that they don't even think about it twice! Even if you haven't been here long, you must've seen how they treat us.

Grohm : Never mind. Shouting at you won't change anything. You wanted to know about refining ore, right? It's easy, but you have to remember the steps.

Grohm : Here goes:
1. Get a chunk of mine gravel.
2. Put that into the upper part of the refiner.
3. Take the onz of mythril sand out of the lower part of the refiner.

Grohm : You can either buy a chunk of mine gravel from someone, or get some by using a pickaxe on a mythril seam inside Palborough.

Grohm : The refining machine is so big, its upper and lower sections are on different floors. Put a chunk of mine gravel into it on the third floor, and it'll produce an onze of mythril sand on the second floor.

Grohm : I know it sounds simple, but it's not. You've got the Quadav to deal with, and they're everywhere.

Grohm : Here, take these pickaxes. Good luck. You're gonna need it.

Lion : Hey, you're an adventurer, right? From another country?

Lion : Sorry, I couldn't help but eavesdrop. I'm going to the Palborough Mines, too.

Lion : Don't worry, I won't get in your way. I don't think we're going after the same thing anyway.

Lion : At least, for now.

Lion : But you shouldn't think your mission is just a mine survey.

Lion : the beastmen seem to have found a new leader, and the Quadav are getting more powerful with each passing day. There could be another war...

Lion : Oh, there's one thing you should know. Do you know why the Quadav took the Palborough Mines?

Lion : Humes claim that the Quadav stole the mines from them, but in reality, the mines are the Quadav's home...no, their holy land.

Lion : The Quadav would die rather than lose it. But the Humes in Bastok don't know, and they don't care to know.

Lion : Well, it's time for me to go. Oh, and my name is Lion. I'm an adventurer, like you. I'll be seeing you around.

Journey Abroad - Metalworks
Savae E Paleade : Ah, you've brought the onz of mythril sand. Good work.

Savae E Paleade : I will have Riault make a brief of the information we've been able to assemble on Bastokan technology. Riault, if you please.

Lutia : <Sigh> Oh, when will be allowed to go back to San d'Oria, I wonder?

Lutia : I've had it up to here with these crass Humes and savage Galka. I want out!

Chantain : I know what you mean. Even their architectural techniques are crude. It's a wonder these building are still standing!

Savae E Paleade : Might I remind you two that this "crude and savage" nation is rivaling San d'Oria for power on this continent?

Savae E Paleade : San d'Oria can ill afford to sit back on its past glories. Our complacence and arrogance will be our downfall.

Lutia : Wasn't it that kind of talk that go you sent here in the first place, regardless of the fact that you are of noble blood?

Chantain : Yes, you should be careful. As my grandfather used to say, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

Savae E Paleade : Oh, you should talk, Chantain. Riault, isn't it about time you were done?

Riault : All done, ma'am. This concludes the Bastok part of this mission.

Savae E Paleade : You are going to Windurst next, aren't you? Do as you have done here. Head to the consulate, and they will take care of you.

Savae E Paleade : Glory be to San d'Oria, and may you walk with honor.

Journey Abroad - Windurst Woods
Mourices : So you've come all the way from San d'Oria, eh? Your dedication to serving the motherland is most admirable.

Mourices : This mission on behalf of the Windurstian government displays our country's level of friendship towards Windurst.

Mourices : Forine, please explain to the brave man here what the mission entails.

Forine : Yes, Consul. Allow me to explain Windurst's request...

Forine : A giant monster has appeared in the depths of Giddeus, the borderland to the theocracy of the Yagudo beastmen. The Windurstian government wants it exterminated.

Forine : You are to receive a key from Heavens Tower in the Windurst Walls district and head to the innermost part of Giddeus, where the creature awaits.

Mourices : Ha-ha! What a jolly tale that is. A ferocious monster appearing in the heart of Giddeus, scaring the Yagudo so much they ask Tarutaru to help them?

Mourices : It's most fortunate for those beastmen that the Windurst government had sought amicable relations with them in order to maintain the peace of their country.

Mourices : What? Don't tell me you hadn't heard of the Windurst's little peace pact with the Yagudo?

Mourices : Of course, we San d'Orians have no need to show to those vulgar beastmen any courtesy whatsoever, but this is an agreement between our two countries, so we have no choice but to go through with it.

Mourices : So go ahead and exterminate the ferocious monster plaguing the depths of Giddeus, but don't think you have to hold back from also giving those whining beastmen what they deserve.

Mourices : Anyway, enough chatter. Godspeed on your assignment.

Journey Abroad - Heavens Tower
Kupipi : Mister/Miss...Player Name, it is? I have received a repo~rt on your mission. You are the adventurer from San d'Oria who will be helping us today.

Kupipi : The Yagudo in Giddeus have a problem. A te~rrible monster has appeared deep within their caves.

Kupipi : Your mission is to travel a~ll the way to Giddeus and help the Yagudo rid themselves of this beast.

Kupipi : Here is the key you will need to get into the deeper-weeper parts of the Yagudo's dwellings.

Kupipi : Giddeus is a sca~ry-wary place. You would never catch me going there... Well, have a nice trip!

The Rank 2 Final Mission (pt.1) - Balga's Dais
Searcher: Heh-heh-heh... I'm so glad you could come.

I didn't realize that little rumor I spread would be so effective.

Searcher: Yes, I'm the "ferocious monster" you were told about...
One who will rally the beastman hordes on a grand campaign to rid the world of you and your kind!

Semih Lafihna: "Rrrally the beastman hordes"?
Almost sounds as if you're planning to wage another Crystal War!

Searcher: Heh-heh-heh. I see you catch on quick.

Searcher: The day of reckoning will come, and the beastmen will be the ones to rule this world!
Not that you'll be there to see it...

Searcher: Because you'll already be dead!

Searcher: Arise Wyrm of Darkness, Devourer of Light!
I command you! Smite my enemies where they stand!

Semih Lafihna: A spatial distorrrtion...?
This can only mean...!?

Semih Lafihna: A...a drrragon?

Semih Lafihna: Phew. Heh-heh...
I knew it couldn't have been old you-know-who.
I was getting carried away therrre.

Semih Lafihna: Hah! Is this all you can musterrr?
...Your pet drrragon?

Semih Lafihna: Hm...? Here come the reinforrrcements.
Looks like they'll be able to handle this.
I have more pressing matters than dealing with the likes of these.
I'll leave it in theirrr hands.

The Rank 2 Final Mission (pt.2) - Balga's Dais
Searcher: This...this cannot be!

Me, defeated...by these weaklings!?

Lion: Oops, I guess I missed the show.

Lion: Hey, wait a minute. This dragon...

Lion: No doubt about it, it's a nether beast from the Northlands!
What's it doing here!?

Lion: Their kind haven't been seen ever since the Shadow Lord was destroyed and the Northlands sealed...

Lion: To see one here, with the beastmen, it's as if...

Searcher: The Shadow Lord will soon be brought back to this world.
I was merely making preparations for His return...

Lion: What!?
Who are you!?

Searcher: I am Searcher, a servant of the Shadow Lord.
The "Great Hero" that saved you twenty years ago is gone--none has the power to defeat Him now.

Searcher: While your peoples were busy squabbling with each other, we have been preparing for His return.

Searcher: And when He comes...He will destroy you all!

Searcher: Enjoy your lives...while they last...
Foolish...weaklings... Hah hah...hah...
Eye-eye-e~ye...!

Lion: The Shadow Lord...is coming back...
There's going to be another war...

Lion: Our days will be filled with hatred and sorrow once more...

Lion: Player name! You should head back to your country.
And don't forget to report what happened here!
If it's true the Shadow Lord is being resurrected, we can expect great trouble to follow!

Lion: I've got to get going.
I hope to see you around again someday, Player name.

Journey Abroad (pt.2) - Windurst Woods
Mourices : What is this you speak? The Shadow Lord is being resurrected!?

Mourices : This cannot be! We'll have to report this to the royal family!

Mourices : I shall write an epistle. I will need you to deliver it posthaste to Monarlais Halver back in the motherland.

Mourices : You must protect this letter with your life. Now hurry and deliver it to San d'Oria!

Windurst -> Bastok

Journey Abroad/S.Consulate (pt.1) - Windurst Woods
Mourices: So you've come all the way from San d'Oria, eh? Your dedication to serving the motherland is most admirable.

Mourices: Unfortunately, I am in one of my moods today. After I read the mission request from Windurst, I became most disgusted.

Mourices: Forine, please explain to the nice gentleman/lady here what the mission entails.

Forine: Yes, Consul.
Allow me to explain...

Forine: The mission from the Windurstian government entails the oblation of magic armor to Giddeus, the frontline to the abode of the Yagudo beastmen.

Forine: A magic shield will be handed to you at Heavens Tower in Windurst Walls. Your orders are to deliver it to the Yagudo treasure chamber, deep in the underground of Giddeus.

Mourices: Have you had the misfortune of meeting the Yagudo yet? They have made a nasty practice out of ganging up to attack the travelers who pass through Sarutabaruta...

Mourices: These are the same beastmen who sided with "the Kindred" twenty years ago, and killed many of our comrades in the war.

Mourices: However, the Windurstians have grown too complacent and show their love of pacifism--even if it is nothing more than a one-sided façade--by forming amicable relations with the Yagudo beastmen.

Mourices: And now they dare ask us proud San d'Orians to carry a tribute to a pack of beastmen. It would almost be laughable if it wasn't such a slap in the face.

Mourices: However, this mission has to be accomplished as part of our pledge to Windurst. We Elvaan are not ones to break our promises, are we?

Mourices: The situation is most exasperating. However, I must command you to go and give the Yagudo their magic shield. But at the same time, I entreat you to deprive the other Yagudo you meet along the way of two of their shields, making up for the imbalance.

Mourices: Now, off with you!

Journey Abroad - Heavens Tower
Lion: Hm? You don't look like someone from around here.

Lion: My name is Lion. I'm an adventurer like you.

Lion: I, too, came here to pick up the offering to the Yagudo.

Lion: It's terrible! The Yagudo are just using the frightened Tarutaru to get more and more supplies.

Lion: The representatives here in Heavens Tower won't listen to me, but I'm certain that most of the weapons and food that are offered are just sold to other beastmen around Vana'diel.

Lion: With all this talk of a new leader bringing the beastman forces together, I just hope that Windurst opens its eyes in time.

Journey Abroad/S. Consulate (pt.2) - Windurst Woods
Mourices: Humph. Seems as if you were able to maintain the path of righteousness.

Mourices: You are now to head to the Consulate of San d'Oria in Bastok.

Mourices: Do you know the way to Bastok from here? You can travel by sea from Mhaura back to Selbina. From there, you have to cross the highlands to the south.

Mourices: Glory to the Kingdom of San d'Oria.
Farewell and safe passage.

Savae E Paleade: Ah, you're here on a mission, aren't you?

We've been expecting you.
It's good to see you made it here safely.

Savae E Paleade: Riault, if you please.

Riault: Yes, ma'am.
First, let me tell you about Bastok's current state.

Riault: Bastok has already lost several major assets to the Quadav.
The Palborough Mines were the greatest loss.

Riault: Their recent plight is akin to ours in our fight against the Orcs.
Only in the time prior to the Great War did the power balance shift so.

Chantain: I've heard a rumor that they are rallying behind a new leader!
Can you believe it? Beastmen, being organized!?

Chantain: This bodes ill, I tell you.
What's worse, we are stuck here in this city of uncouth ruffians!

Savae E Paleade: Chantain! That is enough.
Riault, please continue.

Riault: We need to find out who or what is rallying the beastmen, and at the same time, make it look like we are cooperating with Bastok.

Riault: That is why we need you to go investigate the Palborough Mines. They were once the property of Bastok...but these days, no sane Bastoker would come within a malm of it, given the choice.

Savae E Paleade: If it were up to us, we would want you to go to the mines right away, but we were told by the Bastok authorities that you must report to them first in order to receive authorization.

Savae E Paleade: I know you'd rather do without all the red tape, but bear with us and report to the Bastokan official named Pius. He can be found in the President's Office.

Savae E Paleade: I must warn you that we thought the Humes were a reasonable people before we came here...but we've found that this is not always the case.

Savae E Paleade: Their talent at making profit is incomparable, but their sense of duty is somewhat lacking.
In fact, even their officials can be troublesome. For the sake of your mission's success, try to be patient.

Grohm : I've heard rumors that those dumb Quadav are acting organized.

Grohm : There's even talk that they have a leader now, like in the Great War...

Grohm : Oh, and there's a strange magic circle at the deepest end of the Palborough Mines. It's said that whoever goes beyond it never comes back.

Grohm : Sounds real suspicious, doesn't it? I'm sure you'll find your answers there.

Grohm : Me? Oh, no. I'm never going back there. Good luck! You're gonna need it!

Seeker: Because you will already be dead!

Seeker: Arise, Wyrm of Darkness, Devourer of Light! I command you--smite my enemies where they stand!

Ayame: First, the beastmen and now this...quite a mission this is turning out to be.

Ayame: But there is only one way to end it!

Lion: The Shadow Lord...is coming back... There's going to be another war...

Lion: Our days will be filled with hatred and sorry once more...

Ayame: And I call myself a Musketeer... That I would let myself be hit like that...

Ayame: Thank you for helping me. I am Ayame, of the Mythril Musketeers. I would be dead were it not for you...

Ayame: We'd received reports of strange beastman activity in this area, so I was sent here to investigate. I didn't expect to run into...that.

Ayame: I must go back and report. We'll meet again, adventurer. May you travel safely.

Journey Abroad (pt.2) - Metalworks
Savae E Paleade: Ah, you have returned. What did you find?

Hmm...I see. I am glad you made it back safely.

Savae E Paleade: Riault will write down the details of your investigation.
Please tell him what you have seen.

Lutia: <Sigh>
Oh, when will we be allowed to go back to San d'Oria, I wonder.

Lutia: I've had it up to here with these crass Humes and savage Galka.
I want out!

Chantain: I know what you mean.
Even their architectural techniques are crude. It's a wonder these buildings are still standing!

Savae E Paleade: Might I remind you two that this "crude and savage" nation is rivaling San d'Oria for power on this continent?

Savae E Paleade: San d'Oria can ill afford to sit back on its past glories. Our complacence and arrogance will be our downfall.

Lutia: Wasn't it that kind of talk that got you sent here in the first place, regardless of the fact that you are of noble blood?

Chantain: Yes, you should be careful. As my grandfather used to say, "If you don't have anything nice to day, don't say anything at all."

Savae E Paleade: Oh, you should talk, Chantain.
Riault, isn't it about time you were done?

Riault: All done, ma'am.
This concludes the Bastok part of this mission.

Savae E Paleade: Your mission is almost complete.
You have only to return to San d'Oria with your report.

Savae E Paleade: Glory be to San d'Oria, and may you walk with honor.

Journey Abroad (pt.2) - Chateau d'Oraguille
Halver : Well, Player Name, it's good to see you again. Let's see the report you've brought back, then!

Halver : The Shadow Lord...back!? That's impossible! He was slain by our forces in the Great War twenty years ago...

Halver : What!? The nether beasts have broken out into this land? This is dire news, indeed!

Halver : If this report is true, we must take action.

Halver : Hmm...but, to be honest, I find it hard to believe.

Halver : Very well. I will take this report. You will be issued an Adventurer's Certificate, as promised.

Halver : Your latest accomplishment raises your mission rank to 3. Congratulations.

Halver : You must be weary. Be at ease in this chateau. There is much here to soothe the mind and warm the spirit.
