Game Script

The Celestial Nexus (pt.1) - The Celestial Nexus
Aldo: I couldn't lay a finger on him...

Zeid: I-I cannot move...
So this is the true power of the crystal...

Eald'narche: Nice to see you all again. I was beginning to wonder if you'd make it this far.

Eald'narche: But enough with the greetings. We all know why we've gathered here today.

Eald'narche: Let me be brief. Thanks to you adventurers, the beastmen interfering with my plans to revive the Crystal Line will soon be vanquished. Once that is complete the Gate of the Gods will finally be opened.

Eald'narche: As for what happens to Vana'diel then--who knows? But what I do know is this: What lies on the other side of that gate is the dream that I have seen for the past ten thousand years--the dream of Paradise.

Eald'narche: And what about you? Don't you want to see what is on the other side? Don't you want to be reborn as a god? Come with me.

Eald'narche: Hah! Are you still answering to your foolish pride?
Come on. I'm giving you one last chance.

Eald'narche: The chance to be almighty...and you're just throwing it away. You people truly are the plague of Vana'diel.

Eald'narche: You don't think that you can stop me, do you? You don't think that petty beings such as you can make a difference in the world?

Eald'narche: You're pitiful and useless. The darkness that lurks within all of you is the disease that eats away at this planet.

Eald'narche: And if you want to die meaningless deaths, then I won't stand in your way.

Eald'narche: Now is the time to say good night to all those who fail to cooperate.

Eald'narche: Ha ha... I underestimated your ability.

You fight well, for such lower life forms.

Eald'narche: But there's no more time for playing games. Prepare to witness my true power!

The Celestial Nexus (pt.3) - The Celestial Nexus
Eald'narche: Wh...why!?

Eald'narche: In...in the eyes of the gods, I, too, am no different from...Kam'lanaut...

Eald'narche: But that won't stop me from restarting the Crystal Line...whether it's completed or not!

Eald'narche: The crystals wills spin out of control as they did ten thousand years ago, and create another Meltdown that will destroy this world and everything on it!

Eald'narche: You fought well, but it's time to say goodbye.

Zeid: I cannot believe what I am witnessing...

Eald'narche: The light has begun to converge. Soon, all will end...and my dream will begin!

Aldo: We can't...let him get away with it.

Zeid: So it all ends here...

Lion: Then I guess it's up to me...

Lion: There might be another way to do this, but I couldn't think of anything better...

Lion: I'm sorry, Player name. I don't think I'm going to be able to keep our promise.

Aldo: Wait! What do you think you're doing!?

Zeid: Lion!?

Eald'narche: Wh-what is this noise!?

Eald'narche: The power of the crystal is fading...
But how can this be!?

Eald'narche: No! Nothing can get in my way!

Yve'noile: Stop, Eald'narche. Thou must cease thy vile ambitions.

Eald'narche: !?

Yve'noile: Thou must no longer bring harm to the world of Vana'diel.

Yve'noile: Dost thou not yet realize? Harming Vana'diel will only bind thee from attaining thy dream of Paradise.

Eald'narche: Yve'noile...

Yve'noile: Eald'narche.
Something can never really be destroyed.

Yve'noile: It only changes to take on a new form.

Yve'noile: And now, thy time hast come to take on a new form.

Yve'noile: Let us go...

Yve'noile: Until we meet again...Warriors of the Crystal.

Aldo: Well, let's hope that puts an end to the Zilart's plans. You did a great job in there, Player name.

Aldo: And Lion...

Aldo: If it wasn't for her, who knows what would have become of Vana'diel?

Zeid: I speak for all of Vana'diel when I say thank you, Player name.

Aldo: Well, now that we got that out of the way, let's get out of here. This place gives me the creeps!

Aldo: I think that if Lion was still here, she would agree...

Aldo: Ahem... Be seeing you around, Player name!

Zeid: Player name. I, too, bid you farewell.
But I do not feel that this meeting will be our last. Until our paths cross again...

It all began with a stone, or so the legend says.

In ages past, a sentient jewel, enormous and beautiful, banished the darkness. Its many-colored light filled the world with life and brought forth mighty gods.

Bathed in that light, the world entered an age of bliss until, after a time, the gods fell into slumber. That world was called Vana'diel.

However, this age will not last. The great bane will devour the fair land of Vana'diel.

The ancient seal will be broken, awakening nightmares of ages past.

The blood of innocents will soak the earth, and the world will fall into fear and despair.

But as one bright star shines through the clouds at night...

And as one song rings clear above the roar of beasts...

We hold to one hope in these darkest of times.

That star is you, and the song is yours.

And someday, that hope will become our dreams...our prayers...

Shine forth, star of hope! Let your song ring out across all of Vana'diel!

And what was split asunder will once more become whole. Complete and inseparable for all eternity.
