Ch.4: Ancient Horrors

北米版ファイアーエムブレム聖魔の光石「the Sacred Stones」の章会話(4章:異形の者たち)。

ワールドマップ

With her bracelet recovered, Eirika sets
out with renewed determination.▼
Passing through the ancient forest Za'ha
brings them close to Grado's border.▼
As they near the town of Serafew, Eirika's
fears are assuaged by the lack of troops.▼
But never-before-seen terrors crawl in the
shadows of the trees.▼

オープニング

Seth:
We're approaching Serafew, at the
border of Renais and Grado.▼
Once we cross, we'll be in Grado...
Renvall won't be much farther.▼
Eirika:
That is, assuming we can cross the
border without mishap...▼
Oh!
Look over there!▼
Those strange figures...
What... What are they?▼
Are they...human?▼
Seth:
I've never seen anything like
it. What could they be?▼
Artur:
What have we done to deserve the trials
before us? What is happening to us?▼
How could such abominations walk out lands
while the Sacred Stones protect us?▼
Lute:
......▼
Artur:
Lute, please, it's dangerous outside
the walls. Stay here in the village.▼
Lute:
Those are revenants, aren't they?▼
They were the vanguard of the Demon
King in the days of darkness.▼
The Tome of Nazania describes them in
chapter 2, section 7, paragraph 8.▼
Artur:
You know of them?▼
Lute:
Duh! I'm a prodigy. I can recall
most everything I see or hear.▼
According to the book, revenants
attack using razor-sharp claws.▼
Sounds painful, wouldn't you say?▼
Artur:
Yes, er, well... Be that as it may, I
must go aid those travelers outside.▼
You should stay here within the
safety of the village.▼
Lute:
Very well. I don't mind staying here.
In fact, it seems that smarter choice.▼
Magic is far more powerful then any
monster's claws.▼
The thickest hide and strongest armor
are useless against magic's power.▼
Yes, I suppose I could have studied
swords, but only magic is worthy of me.▼
Even if this village were to be assaulted
by monsters, I could defend it perfectly.▼
Artur:
Travelers, you must listen to me! The
ancient forest of Za'ha is dangerous.▼
Head south and pass through this place
before the fiends surround you!▼
Eirika:
Who are you?▼
Artur:
My name is Artur.▼
The temple has assigned me the task of
cleansing the forest of these...things.▼
There are so many of the fiends, though.
I wonder if I stand much chance alone.▼
So if you would, please flee now while
you have the chance.▼
Eirika:
Fiends?▼
You're not talking about the same fiends
that served the ancient Demon King?▼
That can't be right... They're nothing
but legends and fairy tails...▼
Artur:
Yes, I felt the same say when I heard.▼
And yet here the are. This place
is filled with them.▼
I wonder how far they've spread...
Surely they're not in Renais alone.▼
Eirika:
But...why are they here? How?▼
Seth:
Beware, Your Highness!
Something approaches!▼
Artur:
Please allow me to deal with this.▼
Evil shade! May the blessed light
drive you from this land!▼
Seth:
We ought to help. He can't fight
them all alone. Do you have orders?▼

PLAYER PHASE1開始時

Artur:
One of my companions is in that village
to the south.▼
If any of you can get there swiftly,
I implore you to watch over her safety.▼

ENEMY PHASE2終了時

L'Arachel:
Oh, my!▼
Those travelers are besieged
by the agents of evil!▼
Dozla:
Ha ha ha! Right you
are, Lady L'Arachel!▼
L'Arachel:
I cannot allow this to happen!
Come!▼
We must charge down these cliffs
and rush to their aid!▼
Rennac:
We charge down these cliffs, and the
only thing we'll be rushing to is death.▼
How about we find us a nice, gentle
path down, hm?▼
L'Arachel:
Ah... Yes, well... Let us
hurry nonetheless.▼
I simply cannot abide those
wicked beasts running amok!▼

Man:
Do you see that old snag to the
south of here?▼
Bet it would make a handy bridge
if you could knock it over.▼
Take a weapon to it and give it a
few good whacks. That should do it.▼
Here, take this and give it a try.
It ought to do the trick.▼
(Got iron axe)

エイリーク

Eirika:
Who are you?
Lute:
......▼
Eirika:
Um...▼
Lute:
Your flesh shows no sign of putrefaction.▼
It seems you're not a revenant.▼
Eirika:
No, I'm not.▼
Are you from around here?▼
There are still monsters about,
so you should stay in--▼
Lute:
No, no. I insist on joining you in combat.▼
My name is Lute. I'm a mage of superior
wisdom and rare ability.▼
I've been reading up on these revenants.
They are, quite simply, no match for me.▼
I am superior, after all.▼
Eirika:
What an odd girl...▼

アスレイ

Artur:
Lute, help has arrived.▼
Lute:
......▼
Artur:
Lute?▼
Lute:
Your flesh shows no sign of putrefaction.▼
It seems you're not a revenant.▼
Artur:
Well, I should hope not!▼
I wanted you to know help has arrived.
Please be patient a bit longer...▼
Lute:
No, no. I insist on joining you in combat.▼
I've been reading up on these revenants.
They are, quite simply, no match for me.▼
I am superior, after all.▼

Hm?▼
Lute:
Your flesh shows no sign of putrefaction.▼
It seems you're not a revenant.▼
I've decided to join you in battle now.▼
My name is Lute. I'm a mage of superior
wisdom and rare ability.▼

クリア後

※ルーテを仲間にしなかった場合のみ追加

Artur:
Everything is all
right now, Lute.▼
Lute:
......▼
Artur:
Lute?▼
Lute:
Your flesh shows no sign of putrefaction.▼
It seems you're not a revenant.▼
Artur:
Well, I should hope not!▼
However, I'm obliged to help the ones
who aided me against those friends.▼
So I'm afraid I'll be leaving you and
traveling with them for a while.▼
What will you do, Lute?▼
Lute:
That's a good question. A very good
question indeed. Hmm...▼
It's decided. I'll join you, Artur.▼
After all, who wouldn't appreciate the
help of a mage such as myself?▼
There's no one better than me.▼
Seth:
We've killed all the monsters.▼
Still, we'd best burn the bones to
ash to be sure they don't return.▼
Eirika:
I still can't believe what we've
been fighting here...▼
I'd thought those fiends nothing
more than myth and legend.▼
Seth:
Those revenants are said to be the
least of the dark creatures.▼
And yet, the weakest of them could
outmatch any normal man.▼
We cannot take this enemy lightly.▼
Lute:
Oh, yes. There are much worse then those
revenants and the entombed...▼
Let's see, there's the bonewalkers,
mauthe doogs, gargoyles, baels...▼
Why, I'll bet you just about any creature
of lore could be walking again.▼
Yes, we're in for some trouble. Even my
fabulous power may not be enough.▼
Artur:
O divine light, show me... Is this
a sign of dark days to come?▼
Eirika:
By all that's holy,
what is happening?▼
Seth:
Princess Eirika, perhaps it would be
wise to return to Frelia and regroup.▼
Pressing forward seems foolish in
light of recent events.▼
We cannot face both Grado's forces
and more of those terrible things.▼
Eirika:
Seth, I follow your point, and nothing would
please me more than running for safety.▼
But what of my brother? He and his men
are trapped in the same situation we are.▼
I know full well that I my be leading us
into even greater danger, but...▼
Please try to understand.▼
Seth:
I do, my princess, and I vow to
see you through this safely.▼
L'arachel:
Aha! Foul creatures, beware!▼
I, L'arachel, bestow upon you the honor
at banishment at my blessed hands!▼
Eirika:
......▼
L'arachel:
Oh... Where are the monsters?▼
Eirika:
Well, we just finished...▼
L'arachel:
Ah, glad tidings indeed!
The heavens must be rejoicing!▼
I am...a tad disappointed however.▼
After all, I did rush all the way here
to show you the splendor of my might.▼
Dozla:
Gwah ha ha! It's a real shame,
innit, Lady L'arachel?▼
Rennac:
What's shameful is the way you
drag us around the countryside.▼
Eirika:
Pardon me, but...who are you?▼
L'arachel:
Me?▼
Since you ask, please allow me
to introduce myself.▼
It is I, the true light and glory
of the sacred realm of Rausten...▼
Dozla:
Stop! Lady L'arachel, you
mustn't continue!▼
You cannot reveal your
true identity here!▼
L'arachel:
Oh, yes, you're right. Oh, I get
so careless sometimes!▼
Now, I must ride off in anonymity.
Oh, how beautifully romantic!▼
Eirika:
Uh... Right.▼
L'arachel:
Fare thee well, strangers.
Perhaps our paths will cross again.▼
Come, Dozla! Rennac!
We ride!▼
Dozla:
Gwah ha ha!
Let's go, Rennac!▼
Rennac:
All right, all right.▼
Eirika:
...What was that about?▼
