Chapter 4: Roadside Battle

北米版ファイアーエムブレム蒼炎の軌跡「Path of Radiance」の章会話(第4章 街道の戦い)。

オープニング

Mist
Ike! Ike!
I've got to tell you something!
Listen to this!▼
Ike
Settle down, Mist. It's too early for
you to be yelling like that.
Now, what's going on?▼
Mist
Soren's back! He just arrived.▼
Ike
Really? That's odd. He wasn't supposed
to return for a while yet.▼
Mist
I know! I wonder what he's doing
back so soon...▼
Ike
It's probably nothing to worry about.
I'll go and talk to him.▼
Where is he?▼
Mist
In the mess hall. I think he
wanted to talk to Father.▼
Ike
Right. I'll go check there.▼
Greil
...Troubling news indeed.
Gather the troops.▼
Titania
Yes, Commander.▼
Greil
Ike, if you've got time to waste,
you've got time to work. Get
over to the briefing room.▼
Ike
Yes, sir.▼
Ike
Hey! What's going on around here?
Soren
Bad news. Something big is happening,
and we need to formulate a plan of action.▼
Ike
Soren!▼
Soren
Hello, Ike. Long time, no see.▼
Ike
I'm happy to see you're back.▼
But what happened? I thought
you were going to be studying
for a while longer.▼
Soren
It's a long story...▼
Greil
What's the hold up?
Get over here now!▼
Soren
Let's go. I'll fill you in later.▼
Greil
You probably remember that Soren's been
training with another mercenary group.
Well, he's back now.▼
And he has some unbelievable news.▼
Ike
What news is that?▼
Soren
It's Crimea and Daein.
They've gone to war.▼
Mist
War?! It... It can't be!▼
Greil
That's why I've called everyone
here. Soren has some more
information. Go ahead, Soren.▼
Soren
All right.▼
Soren
Take a look at this map.▼
Greil
Ah. It's a map of Crimea. Quite
detailed, from the looks of it.▼
Soren
Yes. This is the Melior, Crimea's capital.▼
Our base of operations is...
right about here.▼
Everything started three days ago.▼
I needed to do some research,
so I went to the archives of Melior's
royal library.▼
Without warning, the scream of a terrible
beast--a wyvern, perhaps--rent the air,
and the building was rocked by a tremor.▼
I rushed outside and saw wave after wave
of knights, cavalry, and wyvern riders,▼
each clad in glistening ebon armor, black
as night.▼
Greil
The Daein army?▼
Soren
Correct.▼
Greil
Was there provocation?▼
Soren
As you know, relations between Crimea and
Daein have never been...friendly.▼
However, the past centuries have seen only
minor skirmishes, nothing that has ever
approached the scale of this attack.▼
It was brutal and without warning. Daein
laid the capital to waste. I've never seen▼
destruction on this scale before.▼
Titania
A swift attack, devastating and brutal...
A daring gambit, indeed.▼
Greil
But if it succeeds, a very well-chosen
one at that.▼
Yes, the king of Daein would not hesitate
to employ such treacherous tactics.▼
What happened next?▼
Soren
King Crimea's brother deployed the Crimean
army to meet the attack.▼
The king ordered his people to flee the city
before the battle reached them. Fearing the
worst, I also fled and made my way here.▼
Greil
So we don't know how the tides
of battle flow now, do we?▼
Greil
That's all right. Word of the war cannot
have traveled far yet. We may well be the
first ones who know of it out here.▼
You did well to bring us this information,
Soren. I know some risk was involved.▼
Soren
It was nothing.▼
Titania
Daein has invaded Crimea...
We may be mercenaries, but this still
affects us.▼
Ike
What are we going to do?▼
Greil
That's the question of the day.
How do you see it, Titania?▼
Titania
Crimea is the closest thing our company
has to a homeland.▼
The Crimean royal family and noble houses
have been generous, providing us with
many lucrative jobs.▼
From a moral standpoint as well as a
business one, it's in our best interest
to help Crimea.▼
Greil
And you, Soren?▼
Soren
I agree on one point: we are mercenaries.
We are not Crimea's private militia.▼
No coin has crossed our palms,
so I think we should stay out of it.▼
Greil
So you would have us sit and watch
as Crimea is overrun?▼
Soren
I would. Daein's troops are superior in
both numbers and morale. The chances
of a Crimean victory are slim indeed.▼
Titania
But Crimea is ruled by King Ramon, who is
known throughout the land for his wisdom.▼
And his brother, Duke Renning, is said to
possess peerless valor and courage.
Daein may not find victory so easily.▼
Soren
Valor and courage are for children's tales.
In terms of military prowess, Daein's King
Ashnard is every bit Lord Renning's equal.▼
Victory will hinge on troop numbers
and supplies, and Daein is superior in both.
I think the outcome is painfully obvious.▼
Titania
Curse you, Soren! Crimea is not doomed!
If they can turn aside Daein's initial thrust
and turn it into a test of endurance...▼
Soren
With the Crimean army both demoralized
and ill prepared? They simply will not
be able to hold out that long.▼
Greil
All right. That's enough.
Both of you.▼
I hear what you say. However,
we must ascertain the current situation
before we decide on any action.▼
We'll send a scouting party to get
a closer look at Melior.▼
Ike, I want you in charge of this.
Assemble your men and get going.▼
Ike
What? Me?▼
Greil
Titania will accompany you as an advisor.▼
Shinon
Commander, you must be joking!
He's just a boy, and he's had barely
more than a taste of battle.▼
What do you expect a whelp like
him to accomplish?▼
Greil
Ah, Shinon. Since you're so concerned,
you can go as well.▼
Shinon
Wait, that's not what I...
Blast.▼
Greil
Who else... Gatrie, Rhys, and
Soren. That should do.▼
Ike
Father, wait...
Why do you want me--▼
Greil
That was an order. Get moving.
There's no time to waste.▼
Ike
Yes, sir.▼
Greil
Titania, I'm going out for a bit.
I want you to give Ike some direction.▼
Titania
Understood.▼
Ike
...Yes, sir.▼
Mist
Ike! Wait up!▼
Ike
What?▼
Mist
Here! This is for you.▼
(You got a Regal Sword)
Ike
A sword?
Where did you get it?▼
Mist
From Father. He told me to come
and give it to you.▼
Ike
It's beautiful.▼
Mist
This is the first sword you've gotten
that wasn't a hand-me-down from
from somebody, isn't it? That's great!▼
Ike
Yeah...▼
Mist
Well, be careful! Oh, and bring
me a souvenir! Something nice.
I've never been to Melior before...▼
(Exit Mist)
Ike
Mist, I'm not going on a vacation. Sheesh!▼
Ike
...▼
Rhys
Are you feeling all right, Ike?
You haven't said a word in
quite some time.▼
Ike
I don't understand what my father's doing.
Why put a new recruit like me in
charge of something so important?▼
Rhys
You're going to succeed him as
our commander one day.▼
Don't you think he wants you to
know how to lead?▼
Ike
Me? I don't... I don't know if I'm capable.
And even if I am, that day's a long
way off, right?▼
I mean, I'm inexperienced. Weak.
I'm nothing compared to my father.▼
Rhys
I'm not so sure about that.
When I look at you, I see a young
man full of promise.▼
Commander Greil is a great man, but...
I think you'll be every bit his equal.▼
In time you might even surpass him.▼
Ike
Don't be ridiculous!▼
Rhys
It's just my opinion. You need
not pay it any mind.▼
Yet, if you fear your own weakness,
why not take this chance
to go out and better yourself?▼
That would be more in keeping with
your personality, no?▼
Ike
I suppose you're right.▼
Ike
How did things look over there, Soren?▼
Soren
Same as here. There are corpses
strewn everywhere.▼
There are quite a lot of them,
especially when you consider how
far we are from the capital.▼
Titania
Are they Crimean?▼
Rhys
...Judging by the armor,
the vast majority of the dead
are Daein soldiers.▼
Ike
So Crimea has the upper hand?▼
Soren
Just the opposite, I think.
The Crimean soldiers were members
of the Imperial Guard.▼
That means King Ramon--or another
member of the royal family--was on
the move when Daein soldiers fell on them.▼
Titania
Could it have been Lord Renning?▼
Soren
No. As long as the Crimean army still
draws breath, Lord Renning will not
leave their command.▼
Perhaps another member of the court...▼
Gatrie
We've got Daein soldiers moving in on our
location! And they don't look happy!▼
Maijin
You there! Who are you?
What are you doing here?▼
Titania
We're no one you need--▼
Maijin
You're armed! Heed me!
Drop your weapons and surrender!
Act quickly, or else!▼
Shinon
Listen to me, fool. You're making
a mistake. We're not...▼
Maijin
Ah, not going to cooperate, eh?▼
Ready your weapons, men!
Move in and kill them all!▼
Titania
Tsk! Headstrong fools!▼
Soren
Getting caught up in some skirmish
is not part of the plan...▼
Ike
But they're obviously not going
to listen to us.
Greil Mercenaries! Get ready to fight!▼
Shinon
All right, Ike. Let's see how you
handle the role of captain.▼
Well? What are your orders, boy?
We'll do what you say, so long as
you hurry up and spit it out!▼
Ike
I know, I know! I'm thinking!
Give me a moment,
will you, Shinon?▼
Shinon
Bah. Useless! We'd be
better led with Mist than this
soft, untested whelp.▼
Ike
Let's see...
We're in the middle of the road,
and there's not much cover.▼
Soren and Rhys are vulnerable,
so we have to protect them from
enemy attacks... Right?▼
Soren
That's a sound strategy, Ike.
I can attack from behind your
defenses. Good thinking.▼
Ike
Do you mean that? Um...all right!
Let's do that then.▼

戦闘

マイジン初戦時

アイク

Maijin
Bah! You're nothing more than
a bunch of ragtag sellswords.
Who are you to oppose Daein!?▼
You are so terribly ignorant of your
position in this world.▼
Ike
You refused to listen to us, and then
you attacked without provocation!
Is this the way of the Daein army?▼
Maijin
You're a cheeky little monkey, aren't
you? Once you're dead,
you'll regret asssing me!▼

セネリオ

Maijin
A mage, eh? I'll have to keep my
guard up around you, no matter
how young you look.▼
Soren
You forced this combat. We
cannot allow you to return
home. Are you ready to die?▼

ティアマト

Maijin
I've fought the Crimean army before.
The Imperial Guard has some skill,
but the rest are a poor joke.▼
Which will you prove to be? Hmm?
Perhaps you'll offer me some
entertainment after all.▼
Titania
If you attacked us because you
though we were with the Crimean
army, you made a mistake.▼
I left my post years ago.
Now, I'm nothing more than
a common mercenary.▼
Maijin
That means nothing to me.
You're not Daein, you're
armed, and you're here.▼
It's our job destroy you.
Simple, wouldn't you say?
Come, dog! Prepare yourself!▼
Titania
I'd just as soon avoid this bloodshed,
but that seems unlikely. If that's
the way it is, I'll not hold back!▼

その他

Maijin:
Grrr! Blasted mercenaries.
They're better than I expected.▼
Even so, they'll not prove a match
for Daein's finest!▼

マイジン撃破時

Maijin:
Gwaa haa... Wretched curs...
You will regret your decision
to oppose Daein...▼

クリア後

Ike
Did we suffer any casualties?▼
Titania
Any wounded or dead?
No? Excellent! Well done!▼
Gatrie
I don't know... Taking out these
Daein soldiers may have been a bad move.
Um... Hey, Shinon? What are you doing?▼
Shinon
This swine's got some nice weapons.
Besides, he ain't gonna complain.
He won't need them where he's going.▼
Ike
Shinon!▼
Soren
Get ahold of yourself! We can't afford
such behavior right now. Steal from the
dead on your own time.▼
Shinon
What? You judgmental little--▼
Titania
Soren! Shinon! Stop this at once!
This is no place for us to waste time
bickering amongst ourselves!▼
Ike
Let's clear out of here. We have
to tell the commander what happened.▼
Soren
Let's take this road. We should be able
to cut through the forest and...▼
Huh?▼
Ike
Something wrong?▼
Soren
No, as I said, this road...▼
Rhys
Wait! Ike, I just saw something move
on the far side of that thicket!▼
Ike
A wounded soldier, perhaps?
Let's go have a look.
Careful, now.▼
Rhys
Oh, no...▼
Ike
Did you find anything, Rhys?▼
Rhys
...It's a woman...▼
Soren
Leave her.
We shouldn't get involved in matters
that don't concern us.▼
Elincia
Oooh...▼
Rhys
Thank goodness... It looks like
she's merely fainted.▼
Ike
Right. We'd better take her with us
for now and make sure she's all right.
Give me a hand, will you, Rhys?▼
Rhys
Of course.▼
Soren
...I don't like this...▼
