Ch.5: The Empire's Reach

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(5章:帝国の影)。

ワールドマップ

An ominous wave of dark creatures washes
over the continent...▼
Eirika's journey to find her brother, Ephraim,
grows ever more perilous.▼
Still, she presses on despite the danger.
Her will is strong.▼
The town of Serafew, located on the border
of Renais and Grado.▼
The people of both countries have long used
the town as a metting place.▼
It stands as testimony to the friendship the
two nations have shared these many years.▼
Now, however, Serafew is teeming with
Grado troops.▼

オープニング

Joshua:
Well, well. There's an arena in this town.▼
Perfect. My pocket's feeling a bit light.▼
Say, is that a cleric? It is!
And a gorgeous one at that.▼
Joshua:
Something amiss, Sister?
You look flustered.▼
Natasha:
Ahhh!▼
P-pardon me.▼
Joshua:
No, pardon me! I never meant
to startle you.▼
May I offer my apologies...▼
Natasha:
No, it's not necessary...
It was my fault.▼
Excuse me, I must be going...
Good day to you.▼
Joshua:
...And there she goes.▼
Not my lucky day...
She was quit the beauty, too.▼
Ah, such is life. I think I've time
still to visit the arena, though.▼
Glen:
Captain Saar of the Serafew Border
Guard. How fare you?▼
I bring orderes from His Majesty.▼
Rumor has it that Princess Eirika of
Renais is making her way to Grado.▼
You are to find her and to place
her in custody immediately.▼
Saar:
Yes, sir!▼
Glen:
One more thing...▼
A traitor to the empire has fled
Castle Grado.▼
We've received reports she's hiding
somewhere here in Serafew.▼
I don't care if you have to tear this
town apart. Find the turncoat.▼
Saar:
Yes, sir, General Glen!▼
If she resists, do we have
permission to execute her?▼
Glen:
...Yes. Permission granted.▼
Saar:
Understood! Grado's will be done.▼
The Grado Empire will repay the
debt of betrayal with blood!▼
Glen:
...His Majesty relies upon you, captain.
Be sure his trust is not misplaced.▼
That is all.▼
Saar:
Yes, sir!▼
Glen:
Such loyalty to the crown.▼
If only I could hold such conviction
in the righteousness of our emperor.▼
Cormag:
Something troubling you, Brother?▼
Glen:
No... Pay no mind to me.▼
Come, Cormag. Let's go.▼
From here, we ride northeast,
back to the fort.▼
Cormag:
Very well.▼
Eirika:
It's been so long since I last
visited Serafew.▼
My brother and I used to pass
through here en route to Grado.▼
I remember the harmony in which the
people of both countries lived.▼
No walls divided our borders. No
soldiers stood guard in high towers.▼
The border town... It was to me a symbol
of the trust between Grado and Renais.▼
Seth:
...And now, it is firmly under
the thumb of Grado's emperor.▼
Eirika:
The peace I remember in this city...▼
It seems like something from another
time. It seems lost now... Forever.▼
Seth:
...The city doesn't seem to be very
heavily patrolled.▼
They must feel it's not worth guarding
with Castle Renais under their control.▼
We must try to not draw attention to
ourselves. The west gate is undermanned...▼
Saleh (Offscreen):
Pardon me, may I ask
you a question?▼
Eirika:
What is it?▼
Saleh:
I'm looking for someone.▼
Have you seen a young girl
with indigo hair?▼
Eirika:
Indigo hair?▼
No... Sorry.▼
Saleh:
Hmmm...▼
Thank you. Sorry
to intrude.▼
Eirika:
There was something very odd about
that man, wouldn't you say?▼
Seth:
He did seem unusual. He didn't
strike me as a Grado spy, but...▼
???:
Catch her! Don't let her escape!▼
That way! She
went that way!▼
Eirika:
What's that?▼
Seth:
It's coming from over there.▼
Eirika:
Let's see what the commotion is.▼
Soldier:
Traitor Natasha!
Surrender peacefully.▼
Come quietly, and you may have the chance
to explain yourself before His Majesty.▼
Natasha:
Wait, please.
You must listen to me!▼
Soldier:
Take her.▼
Natasha:
No, you must believe me!▼
The emperor is not himself. You
MUST be able to see that!▼
Soldier:
Impugn the emperor at your peril!▼
We've been ordered to execute you
if you offer any resistance.▼
But your words condemn you!▼
Eirika:
That cleric is a traitor to
the throne of Grado?▼
What madness is this?▼
Natasha:
Ah...▼
Eirika:
Are you all right?▼
Natasha:
Who are you?▼
Eirika:
I'm from Renais. Why are
these Grado men after you?▼
Natasha:
You're from Renais... Oh!▼
I have something I must tell
you. It's about Grado--▼
Eirika:
Wait--Grado soldiers are coming
this way.▼
We'll have to talk later.
Now we must fight!▼

ヨシュア

Joshua:
So much for my dreams of making
my fortune here...▼
First the girl, now my gold.
It really isn't my lucky day.▼
Soldier:
You there! Mercenary! What are
you doing here at the arena?▼
Get back to the staging area now!▼
Joshua:
C'mon, why don't we both hit the arena?
It'll be good training.▼
If you're going to risk your life anyway,
you may as well try to earn some gold.▼
Soldier:
I'm reporting you to the captain! You'll
be lucky if he just docks your pay!▼
Don't forget--You can be replaced in
an eyeblink, you filthy sellsword!▼
Joshua:
Don't worry, little man.
I won't forget.▼
Work's work, but I don't
like fighting women...▼
Now then, what's the rest of
the day got in store for me?▼
...Tails, huh? That's nothing
but bad luck and more bad luck...▼

ナターシャ

Natasha:
They may not want to hear what
I have to say, but...▼
I must speak with one of the
Grado soldiers.▼
Oh, if only one of them will
listen to my words...▼
Please! Grant me strength.▼

ENEMY PHASE1終了時

Bandit:
Look at this. Now's our chance.▼
C'mon, lads!▼
Let's join the fight and steal our
way through this pathetic town!▼

Natasha:
I can't let myself die here...
Someone has to hear my tale...▼

話す

ナターシャ→ヨシュア

Natasha:
You... You're that man I met...▼
Are you here to capture me? You've been
hired to silence me, haven't you...▼
Joshua:
Yeah, Grado's paying the bill.
They want you dead, you know?▼
But don't feel bad. It's not personal.▼
Natasha:
Wait, please...▼
It doesn't matter what happens to
me, but you must hear my words.▼
The emperor of Grado is changed.
He is not the man he once was.▼
The other nations must be warned before
he extinguishes all light from out lands.▼
Joshua:
Hey, no offense, but I'm just a mercenary.
I don't care about Grado or its emperor.▼
Everything you say may be true, or it may
be lies. I don't care either way.▼
Natasha:
But that's...▼
Joshua:
Even so... Killing a beautiful lady like
you would leave bad taste in my mouth.▼
Tell me, do you like to gamble?▼
Natasha:
What?!▼
Joshua:
Gambling's what I live for. Even
when I lose, I never want to stop.▼
Let's have a little wager.
If you win, I'll believe you.▼
Heads or tails, you call it.▼
Natasha:
You can't...
This is no time for games...▼
Joshua:
Would you rather I get on with the
job I was hired for?▼
Natasha:
......
Um, heads...▼
No! Tails!▼
Joshua:
All right. So I'm heads,
and you're tails.▼
Here we go.
... ... ...▼
Natasha:
......
Which... Which is it?▼
Joshua:
What do you know?!▼
It's tails. You win. Figures.
I haven't won anything all day.▼
Well, Lady Luck has spoken.
Guess I'm on your side now.▼
Natasha:
Are you serious?▼
Joshua:
Yeah. Sure, I might cheat, but I never
worm out of a bet. It's a rule of mine.▼
Natasha:
Oh, thank heaven! Thank you, blessed
light, for your protection!▼
Joshua:
I have nothing against heaven, but I'm right
here if you want someone to thank...▼
No? Well, get behind me, then. I've
got to take care of these fools.▼

Amelia:
Hope everyone' well back home in Silva.
Just a bit more, and I'll be in the empire.▼
Let's see, I've got vulneraries,
antitoxins...▼
Oh! And I can't let myself forget torches
for when it gets dark.▼
Yep! I'm all set!
Now I just need to get to the capital.▼
I'll be the finest soldier the
Grado army's ever seen! I swear it!▼
--:
Hm? What's this...▼
(Got a Torch)

上から二番目の村

Man:
In my youth, I was a knight of some
renown, I'll have you know.▼
I've even crossed blades with one of
Grado's most famous generals, I have.▼
Ah, but I'm an old man now...▼
I'm starting to worry... What if I die
without passing on my techniques?▼
So, I decided to write down what I've
learned in a book. I have it here.▼
You seem like a strong warrior. I'd
be honored if you would accept it.▼
(Got a Secret Book)

上から三番目の村

Man:
Life in Serafew's been harder since the
Grado occupation force took over here.▼
Serafew's got Renais citizens as well as
Grado, but it's been hardest on us.▼
They've singled out families from
Renais for the most awful atrocities.▼
Please, traveler, take this sword.▼
It's an armorslayer. It'll cut through
even the strongest armor.▼
Take it and strike down that
blackheart, Saar.▼

Tethys:
Oh, hello.
Did you come to see me dance?▼
I'm sorry, but I just finished a
few moments ago.▼
Oh, by the way... Would you be interested
in one of these items?▼
A wealthy patron left me a small random
in gifts after watching my performance.▼
You can sell one for gold if you'd like
or use them to improve your skills.▼
I simply cannot carry all of this by
myself, so please, take one.▼
Wealth is useless if you can't use it
to bring happiness to others, right?▼
Thanks for dropping my. Perhaps we'll
meet again someday.▼

Natasha:
...Ahh...▼
Eirika:
Hold on! You must hold on!▼
Seth:
Her wound is...▼
Natasha:
The...emp...emperor...▼
Eirika:
Stop, you mustn't speak...▼
Natasha:
The emperor wants...de...▼
destroy...
Sacred Stones...▼
Seth:
What?!▼
Eirika:
Destroy the Sacred Stones?▼
Natasha:
Please...warn...▼
Protect the five stones...▼
......▼
Seth:
...She's dead.▼
Eirika:
......▼
Seth, what do you make
of her final words?▼
Seth:
She said something about the
Sacred Stones.▼
She must have meant five stones that
banished evil from Magvel long ago.▼
Eirika:
And the emperor--Grado's emperor?
Is he trying to destroy them?▼
What does that mean?▼
Seth:
I don't know.
It she had lived, we might
have learned more, but...▼
Eirika:
Destroying the Sacred Stones...
We cannot allow that to happen.▼
Could it really be true? What would
drive the emperor to such madness?▼
I must tell you, her story chills me
to the done. I pray it is false.

※ナターシャが生存している場合

Eirika:
That was a tight spot.▼
Natasha:
Yes, yes it was...
Thank you so much.▼
I don't know how to repay--▼
Seth:
You're from Grado, aren't you?▼
Natasha:
Yes...
My name is Natasha.▼
I was a servant of the people
at Grado's Imperial Temple.▼
Eirika:
Then why the trouble with the soldiers?
Would you tell us your story?▼
Natasha:
Of course...▼
A few days past, my mentor was
arrested without warning.▼
They executed him.
They said he was a traitor...▼
But those were false accusations.▼
The emperor had him killed--A holy
man!--to keep him silent.▼
Seth:
Keep him silent?▼
Natasha:
Yes. My mentor told me with
his final breath.▼
The emperor plans to destroy
the Sacred Stones.▼
Eirika:
The Sacred Stones? Destroy them?▼
Natasha:
As you must know, the Sacred Stones drove
back the power of evil long ago.▼
Even now, each of our nations is home
to one of these legendary treasures.▼
There's one in my homeland, Grado, and
one in your Renais...▼
Eirika:
Yes, the Sacred Stone of Renais is
still housed in our royal temple.▼
Natasha:
The emperor plans to destroy the
five stones, one by one...▼
Seth:
Why would he do such a thing?▼
Legend says the Sacred Stones are
even now all that keeps evil at bay!▼
Natasha:
I cannot begin to guess his motives...▼
You must know, our emperor was a gentle
man. But one day, he changed. Utterly.▼
Before my mentor died, he said the keepers
of the Sacred Stones must be warned.▼
I tried to slip across the border, but
the soldiers spotted me...▼
Eirika:
Is that what happened...▼
What do you think, Seth?▼
Seth:
I think we can trust no one form Grado.
Not in these times. Not without proof.▼
However,if what she says is true, we
cannot ignore the danger we face.▼
Destroying the Sacred Stones...
We cannot allow that to happen.▼
Eirika:
I agree. If only we knew if there were
some reason for the emperor's actions.▼
I must tell you, her story chills me to
the bone. I pray it is false...▼

Man:
A moment, please.
Are you perchance...▼
Princess Eirika?▼
Eirika:
I am.▼
Man:
Oh... Thank goodness you're safe!
I can't tell you how happy I am.▼
And please accept my gratitude for
driving off that Captain Saar.▼
That Saar treated all the citizens of Renais
with such contempt and brutality...▼
Eirika:
Not here...not in this city.▼
My brother and I spent such
happy times here with Lyon...▼
Man:
I beg your pardon, but it will not be
long before Grado sends more troops.▼
Please, you must go quickly.▼
Eirika:
I'm so sorry.▼
There's nothing I can do for
you now. Please forgive me.▼
Man:
Do not be troubled.
Princess Eirika...▼
We will survive and wait for the
day of liberation to come.▼
There will come a day when you, Prince
Ephraim, and all of Renais rise up...▼
Until that day of glory comes, we will
wait unbowed and filled with hope.▼
