Opening Narration
-----------------------------------------------------------
Narrator:
The legends of Landen, your homeland, tell of world-
sweeping wars fought 1,000 years ago.  Brave Orakio fought
to foil the evil schemes of the dark witch Laya and her
hordes of monsters.  In the final battle, all combatants
were killed, though Orakio and Laya's bodies were never
found.  The passageways between the Layan worlds and the
Orakian worlds were sealed.  In time, people forgot there
were other worlds besides Landen.  Two months ago, a young
woman washed up on the shores of Landen.  The woman
remembered nothing of her life prior to waking up on the
beach.  This seemingly minor event sets an epic adventure
in motion....

New Game Introduction
-----------------------------------------------------------
Narrator:
The legends of the past shape our lives and those of our
children.  One such legend is of a struggle that almost
destroyed our world.  The names of Orakio and Laya echo
down through the years, still inspiring love and hatred
even now, 1,000 years after their tragic deaths.  Their
conflict wiped out civilization and left the survivors in
a world of mutated creatures and warring pockets of men.
Into this shattered world you are thrust, to live or die
by your sword and your wits.

         The Adventures of Rhys, Prince of Landen
-----------------------------------------------------------

LANDEN
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - Maia will be a fine queen for you!
   - Beware, Prince Rhys!  Layan spies lurk about.
   - Danger is everywhere, Prince Rhys!
   - It's about time you got married, Prince Rhys!
   - Trust in Orakio!  He can protect you from Layans.
Townspeople (Old Men):
   - Maia awaits in the castle, Prince Rhys.
Townspeople (Women):
   - May Orakio protect you from Laya!
   - Are you staying long, Prince Rhys?
Townspeople (Children):
   - Congratulations!
Old Man above Fortune Teller:
   - No time to chat, Prince.  I really need a nap.
Man above Weapon Shop:
   - Congratulations, Prince!  You're a lucky guy!
Man above Technique Distribution:
   - Maia is a mystery to everyone in Landen.
Woman in Western House::
   - Have you found the princess yet, Prince?
Woman in Eastern House:
   - May Orakio watch over and guide you, Prince.


LANDEN CASTLE
-----------------------------------------------------------
Guards:
   - Please escort your bride to the throne room.
   - You're one lucky Prince!
   - Hurry!  Don't be late for your own wedding!
   - Prince Rhys, Maia is waiting in your room.

(Rhys enters his room and finds Maia waiting.)

Maia:
I am honored that you want to marry me, Rhys.  Perhaps
someday we will find out where I'm from and who I am!

(Rhys and Maia walk to the throne room.)

Rhys:
I, Rhys, do take thee, Maia, to be my....

(A dragon flies into the castle and grabs Maia.)

Dragon:
Filthy Orakians!  Maia will not be yours!

(The dragon and Maia vanish.)

Rhys:
No!  Return her, you foul dragon-spawn of Laya!  I'll
find Maia if I have to search forever!  I'll take the
army to destroy Laya's clan!

King:
Don't be a fool!  No one has seen a Layan for over
1,000 years!  Starting a war is not a rational thing
to do.  Cool off in the dungeon for a while!

(Guards step forward to take Rhys away.)

Rhys:
You can't stop me from going after her, father!  I'll
find her again, and I'll bring her back!  I swear it!

(Rhys is sent to the dungeon, where more soldiers escort
him to a cell.  Rhys sees a woman at the cell gate.)

Lena:
I'm Lena.  I'll help you escape.  Follow me.

(She opens the gate and leads Rhys down the corridor.)

Lena:
Arm yourself well and go find Maia!

(Lena stays behind as Rhys leaves the dungeon.)

(However, if Rhys uses the Escapipe he bought in town
after selling his Boots...)

LANDEN CASTLE
-----------------------------------------------------------
Guards:
   - Please escort your bride to the throne room.
   - You're one lucky Prince!
   - Hurry!  Don't be late for your own wedding!
   - Prince Rhys, Maia is waiting in your room.
   - ...
   - ...
   - ...
   - ...

King:
You used your escapipe!  Normally a smart move, but now I'm
afraid the game can't be continued.  Please press the Reset
Button and try again.

(Back to the regular game... after Rhys's escape from the
dungeon...)

LANDEN (after Maia's kidnapping)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - The Sapphire lets you enter the eastern cave.
   - Machines used to fly out of the ruins near here.
   - Make them pay for this, Prince!
   - Arm yourself well, for your foes are deadly!
   - To the south lies Yaata, a port city.
Townspeople (Women):
   - I hear that Laya's monsters are everywhere!
   - The royal family is in mourning.
Townspeople (Children):
   - Your monitor is a handy device.  Use it to find out
     where you are in the world.
Fortune Teller:
   - When the prince leaves his castle, the moons will drift 
     close again.  Worlds shall burn if the prince's will 
     falters.  The prince's offspring will wander afar, 
     until the end of the worlds or the rejection of evil.  
     That's what I see of your future.  Take heed!
Man above Weapon Shop:
   - A monster stole the Sapphire and flew south, toward the 
     island.  Some say it was a man....
Old Man above Fortune Teller:
   - No time to chat, Prince.  I really need a nap.
Woman in Western House::
   - Have you found the princess yet, Prince?
Woman in Eastern House:
   - Remember Orakio's Law: "Kill no living thing!"


YAATA
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - I think Laya's people all died long ago.
   - Laya's people have very strange powers, I hear.
Townspeople (Old Men):
   - I am a superstitious old man, good Prince Rhys.  
     Cyborgs are good luck charms, if you ask me.
Townspeople (Women):
   - May Orakio protect our blessed town of Yaata!
   - The man by the fountain owns a boat, but he will not 
     sail unless he has a cyborg on board.
Townspeople (Children):
   - Walk across the bridge to reach Ilan.
Man above Armor Shop:
   - They say Layans can create monsters.
Man above Equipment Shop:
   - Ages ago, people could fly, or so the old tales would 
     have us believe.  I doubt they really did.


ILAN
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - Orakio destroyed Laya 1,000 years ago.
   - The old man won't let me on his boat unless I have a 
     cyborg.  Now where can I find a cyborg?
   - I saw one of Laya's people at a lake by the 
     northeastern forest.  The woman never blinked!
Townspeople (Woman):
   - Welcome to our town of Ilan, traveler!


MIEU'S LAKE
-----------------------------------------------------------
Mieu:
No, I'm not one of Laya's people, Prince.  I am a combat 
cyborg, designation Mieu type.  I have been waiting for 
1,000 years for you.  Only a descendant of Orakio can 
command me.

Narrator:
Mieu joins your party.


ILAN (after meeting Mieu)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - She looks mighty odd to me, I'll tell you.
   - You sure look like an evil Layan to me.
   - I saw a dragon carry a woman towards the east.  They 
     entered a cave and never came out.
Townspeople (Woman):
   - Welcome to our town of Ilan, traveler!


SEA VOYAGE (after meeting Mieu)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Old Man (Ship Captain):
Welcome aboard!  There's someone holed up in the cave on
the island.  I hear he stole a gem.

(Rhys and Mieu leave Yaata and get in the boat.  On the
way to the island cave, they pass a Sunken Palace.)

Old Man:
See the palace down there in the muck?  Our oldest legend
says the evil Dark Force is trapped there by the sword of
Orakio!

(The boat arrives at the island.)

ISLAND CAVE
-----------------------------------------------------------
Lyle:
Hi!  I'm Lyle.  Yes, I do have the Sapphire.  I don't
really need it, so you're welcome to it.  I'd like to join
you on your adventures, but I have other things to do now.
See you around!


RYSEL
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - We're all suffering from hunger and severe cold.
Townspeople (Old Men):
   - The deadly winter came upon us without warning.  We 
     can't fish in a sea of ice--we're starving!  Please 
     help us before we all die!
Townspeople (Women):
   - This is Rysel, stranger, a small fishing village.
   - We minstrels know much of the ancient legends.  My 
     favorite is one that tells of our people fleeing a 
     terribly evil thing called Dark Force!  The legend says 
     we are the last survivors of a race that sailed between 
     the stars.
Man above Armor shop:
   - Orakio's fortresses once stood south of here.  Legends 
     mention a hidden gate near their ruins.
Woman above Equipment shop:
   - I'm too young to die!  Please help us, heroes!  A tower 
     in Aridia holds the answer, so I'm told.


ARIDIA
-----------------------------------------------------------
(Rhys finds Miun wandering in the desert.)

Miun:
Where is Orakio?  It's been 1,000 years, but I'd know his
black sword anywhere!


HAZATAK
-----------------------------------------------------------
Cyborgs:
   - The cyborgs of Hazatak rarely get human guests.
   - The one you seek abides in a western cave.
   - An old, crazy cyborg wanders the desert.
   - Find Wren, then go east to fix the weather.
   - Sounds like the weather control needs adjusting.


WREN'S CAVE
-----------------------------------------------------------
Wren:
I'm a Wren-type cyborg, programmed to serve you.  I'm a
technical systems and combat specialist.

Narrator:
Wren joins your party.


WEATHER CONTROL TOWER
-----------------------------------------------------------
Lyle:
Remember me, Rhys?  Lyle, with the Sapphire?  I need your
help to thaw out my whole world.  People are dying from
cold and starvation!  Farther in here are the weather
system controls.  Your Wren cyborg can fix it up in no time
at all.  In return, I'll join your party to help out.

Narrator:
Lyle joins your party.

(The group continues on to the weather control system.)

Narrator:
Wren fixed the weather control system!

Lyle:
I owe you more than I can ever repay.  Please come with
me to see my beautiful land.  We can go by ship from the
village of Rysel.


HAZATAK (after fixing the weather controls)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Cyborgs:
   - The cyborgs of Hazatak rarely get human guests.
   - An old, crazy cyborg wanders the desert.
   - Long ago, two moons orbited our world.
   - Return the stones to the satellite system and the 
     wandering moon will grace our sky once more.
   - Long ago, Orakio took the Moon Stone and the Moon Tear 
     from the satellite system device.  Once this was done, 
     our two moons drifted apart.  The control panel is on 
     the second floor of the weather control tower.


RYSEL (after fixing the weather controls)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - Some people across the sea worship Laya.
Townspeople (Old Men):
   - You saved us!  Feel free to use my ship, heroes!
Townspeople (Women):
   - This is Rysel, stranger, a small fishing village.
   - We minstrels know much of the ancient legends.  My 
     favorite is one that tells of our people fleeing a 
     terribly evil thing called Dark Force!  The legend
     says we are the last survivors of a race that sailed
     between the stars.
Man above Armor shop:
   - Orakio's fortresses once stood south of here.
     Legends mention a hidden gate near their ruins.
Woman above Equipment shop:
   - I saw a monster and a woman fly to the east.


AGOE
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - Our land, Agoe, battles Shusoran, Laya's land.
   - A young woman was taken into Shusoran's castle.
   - Stories tell of monsters appearing in fountains--
     especially the fountains of Shusoran!
Woman above Armor Shop:
   - The worst part is that Layans look like us!
Man in House:
   - Laya's people have an army of vile monsters.  We must 
     fight them with cyborgs and machines, just as Orakio 
     did 1,000 years ago.


AGOE CASTLE
-----------------------------------------------------------
Soldiers:
   - No matter how hard we try... Laya's folk beat us.
   - Shusoran looks peaceful, but evil lurks within!
   - Shusoran's castle is now heavily fortified.
King:
   - My people are not strong enough to beat Shusoran.
Queen:
   - If the Layans attack, we'll be wiped out!


SHUSORAN
-----------------------------------------------------------
Boy above Technique Distribution:
   - I hear that Orakio's people hate Layans!
Man above Weapon shop:
   - Ages ago, a sand bar connected our island to that of 
     Cille, to the north, at low tides.  The sand bar won't 
     form unless the moon returns.
Boy above Armor shop:
   - Let's wipe out those filthy Orakians!


SHUSORAN CASTLE
-----------------------------------------------------------
(Rhys’ group sees Lena.)

Rhys:
It's her!  How did she get here?

Lyle:
I found her.

Rhys:
Please help me take her away, Lyle!

Lyle:
If you want her back, fight for her!  I have to leave you
now, Prince Rhys.  I'll explain why later, if things work
out.

(Lyle leaves the group.  If you try to go back, a soldier
stops you.)

Soldier:
You may not pass!  Your doom awaits, Orakians!

(Lyle is found.  He is standing before Lena.)

Lyle:
Now it's time to see you really fight, Rhys!

(A battle between Rhys and Lyle ensues.  Lyle is defeated.)

Lyle:
You're a lot tougher than I thought, Rhys.  Someone wants
to speak with you, by the way.

Lena:
You've come a long way since we last met.  Before we get
Maia, we must backtrack a bit.  Return to Aridia and put
my Moon Stone and Lyle's Moon Tear into the satellite
control system.  That will bring the moon back to its
proper place and open a land bridge form the rear gate
of this castle to where Maia is being held.  Let's go
rescue Maia!

(As you leave the castle, three castle residents are
encountered.)

Soldiers:
   - Just be thankful you're with Prince Lyle, spies!
   - Watch your step, Orakio-lovers!
Noble:
   - Orakians in Shusoran?  Guards!  Help!


SHUSORAN (after speaking with Lena)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - Prince Lyle, welcome home to Shusoran!
   - Legends say that the Moon Stone and Moon Tear belong in 
     a tower deep within Aridia.
Townspeople (Women):
   - You can never tell what Lyle will do next!
   - There's never a guard near when you need one.


WEATHER CONTROL TOWER (after speaking with Lena)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Narrator:
As the Moon Stone and Moon Tear are placed in the panel,
Dahlia, the purple moon, moves.

Wren:
Pretty soon we'll be able to cross the sea north of Shusoran,
to reach Cille's island.


CILLE
-----------------------------------------------------------
Townspeople (Men):
   - The people of Cille are insulted that you want the hand 
     of Maia, our fair princess.  Begone!
   - Layans should not marry despicable Orakians!
Townspeople (Women):
   - Luckily for you, Laya's Law forbids killing.  "Kill no 
     living thing," was Laya's last message.


CILLE CASTLE
-----------------------------------------------------------
Guards:
   - Luckily for you, Laya's Law forbids killing.  "Kill
     no living thing," was Laya's last message.
   - Luckily for you, Laya's Law forbids killing.  "Kill
     no living thing," was Laya's last message.
Soldier:
   - Layans should not marry despicable Orakians!

(The king stands near his throne.  Maia is behind him.)

King Cille:
I'm the king of Cille.  I'll show you how we handle Orakian
spies in my country!

(A battle between Rhys' party and King Cille ensues.
King Cille is defeated.)

King Cille:
I yield to you, Rhys!  You are mighty indeed.  Perhaps Lyle,
my nephew, was right about you.  You must now choose between
Maia and Lena.  Wed Maia and you shall become king of Cille.
Marry Lena and you shall be king of Landen and neighboring
Satera.

Rhys:
I will marry Maia.
I will marry Lena.

(If Rhys marries Maia his son is Ayn, Prince of Cille.)

(If Rhys marries Lena his son is Nial, Prince of Landen
and Satera.)
