Ch.5x: Unbroken Heart

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章外伝:砕けぬ心)。

オープニング

Tirado:
What a pleasant surprise.
It's Master Valter.▼
Valter:
What's the situation, Tirado? You
have captured Ephraim, haven't you?▼
Tirado:
No. Prince Ephraim still fights
in the lands north of Renvall.▼
Valter:
And why is that?▼
What has happened to all
those mercenaries you hired?▼
Tirado:
They've proven to be less than adequate.▼
Ephraim's clever. His band strikes quickly
and then vanishes into the woods.▼
We more than double his numbers, and yet
he uses the terrain wisely to fight us.▼
He has no army--just a small force
of knights loyal to Renais.▼
Prince Ephraim's reputation as a superb
strategist would seem to be well earned.▼
Valter:
Hmm...▼
How interesting. The lad's beginning
to whet my appetite.▼
Tirado... Bring him to me as quickly
as you can, will you?▼
Tirado:
As you command.▼
Just grant me an army, and
I'll bring him down swiftly.▼
Valter:
What sort of plan do you have?▼
Tirado:
Master, I am your loyal adjutant,
and you are my general.▼
For you, my lord, I have many
plans ready and waiting.▼
Valter:
Really? Well then,
let me hear them.▼
Tirado:
Very well.▼
First, you and I will leave this
fort and head north.▼
Then, we will find Prince Ephraim
in his leafy playpen.▼
Valter:
But he's not easily found, is he?▼
Tirado:
Do not worry.▼
At Prince Ephraim's side is...
a friend, shall we say.▼
When the time is right, our friend
will move on our behalf...▼
Ephraim:
Forde, how are we on
supplies and equipment?▼
Forde:
It's not looking good.▼
Our weapons are in bad shape,
and we're running low on food.▼
We can probably restock at a
nearby village, but--▼
Ephraim:
No, that's not an option.▼
We're in enemy territory. I will not
involve innocents if I can avoid it.▼
Forde:
Yeah, I knew you'd say that.▼
I mean, it's because of stuff like that
that we've stuck with you so far.▼
But eventually, we do need to face
reality. What are we going to do?▼
Kyle:
Word of mouth has it that the invasion
of Renais has progressed quite far.▼
I've heard that the capital has fallen.▼
Ephraim:
Hm... So soon...▼
Still, my father is in the capital,
and he won't surrender easily.▼
Forde, Kyle.▼
Our mission here is to harry the
troops, to distract their eye.▼
Hopefully, we'll be able to give my
father and Eirika time to escape.▼
Kyle, have you heard anything from
Orson? I sent him ahead to scout.▼
Kyle:
No word yet, and it's about
time he returned...▼
Orson:
Reporting in, Prince Ephraim.▼
I can confirm Grado presence at
several points around our camp.▼
Also, a large battalion of soldiers
has been dispatched from Renvall.▼
We shouldn't tarry here any longer
than necessary...▼
Ephraim:
I see.▼
Forde:
Seems as though we've certainly
caught Grado's eye this time.▼
Should we retreat back to the
capital, Prince Ephraim?▼
Ephraim:
No. We press onward.▼
We're going to capture Renvall.▼
Forde:
Wh-what?!?▼
Ephraim:
So this is Renvall, is it?▼
All right, let's go.▼
Forde:
Um... Are you...sure you're
quite sane, Prince Ephraim?▼
We've an entire army after us, and
you want to charge their stronghold?▼
Kyle:
Forde! Watch your tongue! This
is our prince you're addressing!▼
Ephraim:
Kyle, please, it's all right.
We've heard nothing from home,▼
so what harm could a little
reckless besieging cause?▼
Kyle:
Prince Ephraim...▼
Ephraim:
Don't worry. I haven't lost all sense
of self-preservation.▼
Renvall holds an important place in
Grado's national defense.▼
If we can get the upper hand
and take control of it,▼
then Grado will waste many valuable
soldiers trying to take it back.▼
I hope our attack proves useful
to my father and Eirika.▼
Forde:
I understand what you're saying, but...▼
can we do it with our current strength?▼
Ephraim:
Every soldier in this area is
trying to find us.▼
The enemy has us vastly outnumbered.
Attacking the castle is a ridiculous idea.▼
If the enemy thinks the same...
then we may have our opening.▼
Forde:
You have a point. I'm sure Renvall won't
expect us to attack with these numbers.▼
Either way, we can't run forever.
And we're running out of supplies.▼
What've we got to lose?
Shall we get ready to go?▼
Ephraim:
Yes. If we don't move quickly, we
may never get another chance.▼
Trust me. I don't pick fights I
cannot win.▼
Kyle:
Yes, sir!▼
Zonta:
An attack? By Ephraim's troops?▼
To arms! Prince Ephraim's circled around
and brought the fight to us!▼
If we capture the prince here, we can
line our pockets with gold!▼
Do you understand? We'll be rich!▼
Ephraim:
Orson.▼
Orson:
Yes...▼
Ephraim:
Your wounds still haven't healed
from that last battle, have they?▼
Don't push yourself.▼
If we're defeated, you must return
to Frelia. Understood?▼
Orson:
Understood...▼
Ephraim:
Let's go!
Kyle! Forde!▼

戦闘

ゾンタ初戦時

Zonta:
Do you truly think you can take
us with those numbers?▼
Imbecile! You'll learn the
error of your ways!▼

ゾンタ撃破時

Zonta:
L-Lord Tirado... It can't be...
Were we...merely pawns?▼

クリア後

Kyle:
We've secured the entire castle.▼
You were brilliant, Prince Ephraim!
What a plan! What a battle!▼
Ephraim:
I estimate at least half of the
enemy troops are in the field.▼
We took the castle, but we don't have the
manpower to hold it in a siege.▼
There's no point in lingering here.
Let's continue on to Grado Keep.▼
Forde:
Prince Ephraim, things have
taken a turn for the worse.▼
I took a look around the castle perimeter...▼
We're surrounded.▼
Kyle:
What?▼
Ephraim:
Grado's sent reinforcements?
So quickly...?▼
Kyle:
What should we do?▼
Ephraim:
......▼
We must escape!▼
Valter:
So, you've captured Renvall, have you?
And with such a small force! Impressive!▼
You've earned your reputation. I must say,
I quite admire your work.▼
I take it you're the leader of this
pack--the misguided Prince Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
I am.▼
Valter:
I'm General Valter, the Moonstone
of Grado's Imperial Army.▼
Catching up to you has caused me
no small amount of trouble.▼
We've reduced your wretched home
of Renais to ruin, and yet...▼
you and your little band of bravos
continue to be a thorn in our side.▼
But that all ends here.▼
Ephraim:
We'll see... You claim you've
taken the capital of Renais...▼
Tell me, how did you know
I would attack Renvall?▼
Valter:
Ha ha... Patience. You'll have
your answer soon enough.▼
Now, be good lads, and drop
your weapons, will you?▼
Kyle:
Prince Ephraim, let us attack!▼
Ephraim:
......▼
Valter:
Listen to me, Ephraim. You're a smart
man. You know it's futile to fight me.▼
You cannot win.
You cannot escape.▼
Accept the reality of your situation,
and surrender to me.▼
Ephraim:
Surrender?▼
Valter:
Heh heh heh... That's right.
If you do, I'll let you live.▼
I hold your life in the palm of my
hand. Do not test my good humor.▼
Now come over here, bend your
knee, and beg for your life.▼
Show me how Renais dogs grovel.▼
Ephraim:
I think not.▼
Valter:
What?▼
Ephraim:
You said your name was Valter, didn't you?▼
Well, I'm sorry, Valter, but I don't have
time to waste playing games with you.▼
So, we're going to knock you louts about a
bit and then make our way out of here.▼
Valter:
Fool... Have you gone mad?▼
Do you truly believe you can fight
your way past my wyvern knights?▼
Ephraim:
Watch and see I don't pick
fights I can't win.▼
Kyle, Forde.
Are you ready?▼
Kyle:
My life has been yours since the
moment I took my chivalric vows.▼
Forde:
It's moments like these that
keep me by you side, my prince.▼
Valter:
What idiotic wretches you are...▼
Prepare yourselves to be
destroyed utterly!▼
Ephraim:
We break to the east. GO!▼
