Ch.9: Fort Rigwald

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(エフラム編9章:リグバルド要塞)。

ヴェルニの塔案内

The Tower of Valni has appeared to the
east of Castle Frelia on the world map.▼
Once held by Grado's troops, it has become
home to a host of dark creatures.▼
Battling these monstrosities is a good
way for units to gain strength.▼
Try using the tower as a training area
to gain extra experience.▼
Be aware: you cannot save your battle
preparations for tower skirmishes.▼
Once you clear a tower map, you'll have
access to the next floor.▼
Each floor is more difficult then the last,
so come prepared!▼
Dark creatures also may appear on other
bases on the world map.▼
To engage these demons in combat,▼
Simply place the cursor on their location
and press the A button.▼
If the battle goes poorly and you're in
danger of losing units,▼
use the retreat command on the map
menu to withdraw your troops.▼

ワールドマップ

Ephraim begins his march south toward
Grado from Castle Frelia.▼
Upon conquering Renais, the Grado Empire
has set its sights on Frelia.▼
However, Innes and his troop meet the
invaders at the waters's edge.▼
Against all odds, Innes halts the invasion,
keeping Frelia's border intact.▼
Ephraim coordinates Frelia's troops in an
effort to advance the front lines.▼
Unbeknownst to Ephraim, Grado forces are
waiting for them at Fort Rigwald.▼
They've fortified their positions and plan
to wait out Frelia's siege.▼
Undaunted, Ephraim remains determined
to root out Grado.▼

オープニング

Vigarde:
The Stone of Frelia has already
been taken care of...▼
How is the the Stone of Renais
continues to elude us?▼
Glen.
Valter.▼
Find the children of Renais.▼
Find them and take from them
the bracelets that they wear.▼
Glen, take Eirika. Valter, take
Ephraim. Find them. Conquer them.▼
Glen:
Yes, Your Majesty...▼
Valter:
Ha ha... Eirika, eh?▼
She's a ripe little peach.▼
And her brother, Ephraim...
He's better prey then I'd imagined.▼
I can feel my blood rushing at the
thought. This might be fun after all.▼
Vigarde:
Caellach.
Riev.▼
Shatter the remaining
Sacred Stones.▼
Caellach, take Jehanna.
Riev, take Rausten.▼
Go. Crush the Sacred Stones
they house.▼
Riev:
Heh heh heh... As you will.▼
I'll begin making arrangements for
Rausten's downfall immediately...▼
Caellach:
Bah! Why am I stuck with Jehanna?
Accursed ill luck.▼
I became a mercenary to escape that
wretched place, and now I must go back?▼
Vigarde:
Duessel.▼
Go to Frelia.▼
Punish the Frelian army
and their commander, Ephraim.▼
Duessel:
Begging your pardon, Your Majesty...▼
Now that you've conquered Renais, what
are your plans for her citizens?▼
The country is in ruins. Thieves and
bandits swagger about as if--▼
Vigarde:
Leave them...▼
Duessel:
But, sire...▼
Selena:
Sir Duessel. The emperor
has spoken. Please...▼
Duessel:
......▼
Vigarde:
Selena.
Remain here in the capital.▼
We shall have new orders
for you shortly.▼
Selena:
Understood.▼
Duessel:
Please, Your Majesty!▼
Grant me the privilege of
a single question.▼
Vigarde:
......▼
...You vex us.▼
Duessel:
Your Majesty, you know that I will gladly
lay down my life for an honorable cause!▼
But these orders--and all of our
recent actions--they are not just!▼
If I saw in any way in which this invasion
protected Grado, I would hold my tongue.▼
But now, Renais is left ungoverned to
drown in chaos, and we gain nothing!▼
Why do you wage this war? What is it you
hope to achieve?▼
You've sent our men to fight and die for
nothing! This isn't war--it's murder!▼
Vigarde:
...Duessel.▼
This decision is ours to make.▼
You have no voice in these matters.▼
Duessel:
Punish me if you must, Your Majesty,
but I implore you!▼
Please rethink this!! If this
continues, Grado will--▼
Vigarde:
Duessel.▼
Go to Frelia.▼
Crush the Frelian army, and he
who leads them, Prince Ephraim.▼
Duessel:
Your Majesty!▼
Vigarde:
Have you gone deaf?▼
Duessel.▼
Go to Frelia.▼
Crush the Frelian army, and he
who leads them, Prince Ephraim.▼
Duessel:
......▼
Yes, Your Majesty.▼
Lyon:
......▼
Soldier:
Commander Gheb!▼
We captured a pegasus knight
snooping about outside.▼
Tana:
let me go! Stop it!
That hurts!▼
Gheb:
Ooooh...▼
You didn't tell me she was
such a treat for the eyes.▼
Heh heh...
This is a prize worth catching.▼
Tana:
I-I came for Ephraim.▼
If you do anything to me,
he will not be merciful.▼
Gheb:
Heh heh... I like her.
Throw her in a cell.▼
I'll spend the evening giving
her a thorough interrogation.▼
Heh heh heh...▼
Tana:
You b-beast!▼
Seth:
That is Fort Rigwald.▼
It has stood unconquered for generations.
Its defenses are legendary.▼
It is the jewel of Grado's fortifications,
and its walls have never been breached.▼
Ephraim:
And if we don't capture it, any attack
on the capital will be pointless.▼
Tell me what you see, Seth.
Do we have the power to take it?▼
Seth:
It's a daunting task.▼
The enemy has the advantage of
both terrain and numbers.▼
Ephraim:
But what about in morale?▼
Seth:
Do you suspect the soldiers
may be unwilling to fight?▼
Ephraim:
Anything's possible.▼
The war is a sudden thing, but Grado
and Renais had long been friendly.▼
Before these hostilities, our nations were
allies... No, closer even then that.▼
This is the emperor's war, but the hearts
of the people are not so swift to change.▼
For example, General Duessel, one of the
Imperial Three they call Obsidian...▼
He was the one who taught me what I
know about fighting with the lance.▼
Duessel's sympathies are sure to remain
with Renais--and with our cause.▼
He is loyal to Grado, but he has no love
of war. I'm sure he will speak with me.▼
Seth:
......▼
Ephraim:
And more than that, Prince Lyon
has been my friend for years.▼
He can be timid at times and perhaps
was unable to oppose his father.▼
But I'm sure he detests this fighting
and shares my opinions.▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim...▼
Ephraim:
There must be some Grado soldiers within
the castle who do not want to fight.▼
If we can rush the fort and seize the
throne room, I believe they will surrender.▼
Seth:
...Optimism here may be deadly.▼
Still, it's a far better plan than
challenging the main army face-to-face.▼
Ephraim:
Eirika is on her way to Rausten
to help end this conflict.▼
We cannot afford to wait here
for much longer.▼
We must take this fort and then
press on to the capital itself.▼
Let's go!▼
Soldier (Offscreen):
Attack! We're under attack!
...Looks to be Frelian troops.▼
Their commander is...
Prince Ephraim of Renais!▼
Other Soldier:
Renais? This whole thing stinks.▼
My younger sister and her husband
were living in Renais...▼
What is the emperor thinking,
starting this war? I think--▼
Gheb (Offscreen):
...Hey.▼
Other Soldier:
Ah!▼
Gheb:
Yeah, I heard you. Talking
about not Fighting, are you?▼
Losing your nerve?▼
The punishment for treason is
harsh. You'll burn at the stake.▼
Other Soldier:
B-but--▼
It's not just me! Even General
Duessel is opposed to this war!▼
Gheb:
Duessel? You'd side with that
washed-up coward?▼
And who is your commanding
officer? Is it Duessel?▼
Come on, out with it!▼
Other Soldier:
Y-you are, Sir Gheb.▼
Gheb:
That's right. So that should make it
clear whose orders you follow, eh?▼
You got that, bolts? If you do,
then shut up and get in formation.▼
No one cares whether you minnows
live or die anyway. Got it?▼
Amelia:
W-wait a moment!▼
That's a horrible
thing to say!▼
Gheb:
And who are you supposed to be?▼
Your name! Out with it!▼
Amelia:
I-I'm Amelia...▼
I was assigned to this
fort today!▼
I am a soldier of Grado.
I am not a slave!▼
Gheb:
What's this now?
You're a girl?▼
You've got a lot of nerve talking
like that to your commander, recruit.▼
Looks like I'm going to have to teach
you about the chain of command.▼
Amelia:
Ah...▼
Soldier:
Commander Gheb!
Enemy troops approaching!▼
Gheb:
Grrr! Stinking interruptions...▼
Form up, you useless worms. Don't
let those dogs near the throne.▼
Grado cannot afford to lose a
brilliant tactician of my stature!▼
No one will blink if any of you
worthless toads dies. But if I die--▼
You should be happy to fight, kill,
and die in my service!▼
Amelia:
I become a soldier, to honor the emperor,
General, Duessel, and the people of Grado.▼
But this...this is wrong!▼
Soldier:
That's the lot of a soldier. We're pawns
in the games of kings and emperors.▼
We fight as ordered, and we die as
ordered. That's it.▼
C'mon, time to go.▼

Tana:
Oh, what a fool I've been...▼
I came all this way to help Ephraim,
and I end up getting captured again.▼
That General Gheb had the creepiest
eyes...and that laugh! Oh!▼
Hurry, Ephraim... Please.
Hurry and rescue me.▼

エフラム→アメリア

Ephraim:
You're a Grado soldier?
But you're just a child.▼
Amelia:
I am not a child!▼
I'm a soldier of Grado, and I will
defeat every soldier of Frelia I meet!▼
Ephraim:
Is that so?▼
Guess I'm ready then.▼
Amelia:
Um...▼
Ephraim:
...Is that the stance you're going to
use? You'll drop your lance that way.▼
I'm Prince Ephraim of Renais. Why don't
you surrender and come with me?▼
Amelia:
Wha-what are you going to do to me?!▼
Ephraim:
Calm down.▼
As long as you don't try to stab me,
I won't do a thing to harm you.▼
Amelia:
You lie! You're a liar! Everyone knows
about Prince Ephraim of Renais.▼
He's a beast who attacks any
woman he sees...▼
Ephraim:
......Right, this has gone far enough.▼
I am not going to hurt you. If you're scared,
throw down your weapon and run away.▼
But...If you're willing to listen,
I'd like to ask for your help.▼
You must relize this whole war is madness,
right? Something is wrong in Grado.▼
Amelia:
......▼
I-I'm...▼

フランツ→アメリア

Franz:
You...you're a girl?!▼
Amelia:
Ah! Don't make fun of me!
I'm a soldier of Grado!▼
Prepare yourself, Frelian dog!▼
Franz:
W-wait a minute!▼
Amelia:
Oof...▼
Franz:
Are, are you alright?▼
It's not surprising you fell
over from that stance.▼
Can you get up?▼
Amelia:
Sh-shut up!▼
Franz:
Did you hurt your knee?▼
I know how it feels. I did it
often enough as a recruit myself.▼
To be honest, I still do it
more then I should.▼
Amelia:
......▼
Franz:
I'm Franz. I'm a knight of Renais.
What's your name?▼
Amelia:
I'm Amelia.▼
Franz:
Amelia, do you think I could
ask you to surrender?▼
This may be off, but I really
have no desire to fight you.▼
Amelia:
......▼
Franz:
I get the feeling you don't want
to fight either. Am I right?▼
Amelia:
I...▼
B-but...▼
I've heard Prince Ephraimn takes female
prisoners and uses them as palace slaves.▼
If I surrender, will I be forced to
work in the palace, too?▼
Franz:
N-no, don't be silly!▼
Prince Ephraim would never do such a
think...I think...▼
Amelia:
You think?▼
Franz:
No, he wouldn't! Of course not.
You have my word of honor.▼
Amelia:
...Well, you seem sincere.
I'll trust you Franz.▼

エフラム⇔ターナ

Ephraim:
Tana?!▼
What are you doing here?▼
Tana:
I came here in hopes of
helping you in some way.▼
But while I was looking for
you, I got captured by Grado troops.▼
Ephraim:
Is that so? Well, I'm glad
to see you're unharmed.▼
Tana, you should head back
to Castle Frelia immediately.▼
King Hayden must be worried
about you.▼
Tana:
No! Ephraim, I came all this
way so I could help you!▼
Ephraim:
And yet, here I am, helping you.▼
Tana:
Ah, well... Yes, that may be true, but--▼
But I've been so worried about
you, Ephraim!▼
Ephraim:
I see. Oh, please don't look at me
with those teary eyes.▼
If you're really determined to help,
then you're welcome to come with us.▼
But you must promise me not to try
anything reckless.▼
Tana:
Ephraim... Thank you.▼
I knew that you would
understand how I feel.▼

I-I am not your pawn!▼

Seth:
Prince Ephraim, the rest of the
enemy troops have been routed.▼
Ephraim:
Bring me one of the prisoners.
I have a question I need answered.▼
Soldier:
......▼
Ephraim:
I'm going to ask you a question. If
you've no wish to answer, remain silent.▼
If you wish this conflict to end quickly,
however, you will cooperate.▼
Soldier:
......▼
...What do you want?▼
Ephraim:
Why has Grado invaded Renais?▼
Soldier:
...I can't say.▼
This war began on the
emperor's orders.▼
Soldiers like me haven't the
foggiest idea what he's after.▼
Soldier:
Then tell me this:
where is General Duessel?▼
Soldier:
In the capital. The general's been
opposed to this war from the start.▼
He's been pleading with the emperor for
days now, but the emperor ignores him.▼
They say some are question the
general's loyalty.▼
He's putting his standing--and his life--
in danger by being so vocal.▼
Ephraim:
Is that so...▼
Well, it appears General Duessel remains
the same true man I knew before.▼
What about Prince Lyon? Where's
he been through all of this?▼
Why didn't he do anything to
temper his father's aggression?▼
Soldier:
......▼
According to rumors...▼
Emperor Vigarde was convinced to start this
war by none other then the prince himself.▼
Ephraim:
What did you say?▼
That's ridiculous!▼
I know Prince Lyon well. No one
hates fighting more then he does.▼
He would never do anything to
trigger all this bloodshed!▼
Seth:
Prince Ephraim please calm down.▼
Ephraim:
...I'm sorry.▼
Ephraim:
We leave the prisoners and the
fort to the Frelian troops.▼
Seth, I intend for us to press
on toward the capital.▼
At some point, I expect we'll
find either Duessel or Lyon.▼
I'm sure we can convince them to
join us in stopping Emperor Vigarde.▼
Seth:
Understood. But I have
misgivings, my prince.▼
General Duessel and Prince Lyon
are both men of Grado.▼
If we are forced into conflict
with them...▼
Ephraim:
It won't happen.▼
Duessel was my teacher, and I know
he is a man of character.▼
And I've known Lyon since we were children.
He, Eirika, and I are old friends.▼
Seth:
......▼
Ephraim:
I understand your concerns.▼
If worse comes to worst and steel
is drawn, I will not hesitate.▼
I'll fight and kill anyone who
thinks to oppose me.▼
Are you satisfied, Seth?▼
Seth:
Yes...
I apologize for my rudeness.▼
Your father is gone, and that
means you are king of Renais.▼
There is no other.▼
I just ask that you not throw
yourself into needless danger.▼
Ephraim:
I hear you.▼
The decisions I make affect
more than my own life.▼
Once this war is finished I will
rebuild Renais with Eirika.▼
That is my mission.▼
Ephraim:
Myrrh.▼
Myrrh:
What is it?▼
Ephraim:
You must return to Frelia.▼
I cannot take you any farther
on this journey.▼
Myrrh:
What?▼
No. I want to
stay with you...▼
Ephraim:
No, Myrrh.▼
I'm continuing on to the Grado capital.
It's going to be very dangerous.▼
I can't protect you--not as well as
I'd like to, anyway.▼
Myrrh:
Everything comes from that direction.▼
I can feel my lost dragonstone...
And that's not all.▼
The dark energy still flows unchecked...▼
I cannot go home while it
stains the air...▼
Ephraim:
But...▼
Myrrh:
Please, Ephraim.▼
Ephraim:
...Very well. Ah, I simply
cannot refuse you anything.▼
Your eyes remind me too
much of Eirika.▼
You must not stray from my
side, do you understand?▼
Myrrh:
Yes, I will not stray...▼
Vigarde:
Selena.▼
Your orders.▼
Selena:
I am ready, Your Majesty.▼
In your service, I am
prepared to do--▼
Vigarde:
Duessel has left for Bethroen.▼
Take a battalion and follow him.▼
Selena:
Understood. When I arrive, I will
place my troops at his disposal.▼
Vigarde:
No... You will not.▼
You will strike
Duessel down.▼
Selena:
Wha...▼
Vigarde:
Duessel is a traitor.▼
He abandoned his country
and sided with Renais.▼
The punishment for treason
is death.▼
Selelna:
B-but...▼
General Duessel a traitor?
That's just not possible!▼
There must be a mistake...▼
Vigarde:
......▼
Selena:
No... I did not mean that you
are mistaken, Your Majesty.▼
But...but...▼
Vigarde:
Selena.
You have your orders.▼
You will execute Duessel.▼
Selena:
......▼
...Your Majesty.▼
Will you allow me
to ask you a question?▼
Vigarde:
......▼
Selena:
When Your Majesty saw fit to
make me a general,▼
you shared with me some words of wisdom.
I remember the moment quite clearly.▼
You told me that the role of an imperial general
is that of the shield, not the blade.▼
We are here to protect our citizens, you
said--not the threaten our neighbors.▼
I have never forgotten your words,
Your Majesty.▼
I have held them to my breast. They
govern my every action as a general.▼
Your Majesty, that sentiment
is still alive, and--▼
Vigardo:
Go.▼
Selena:
......▼
I humbly acknowledge your orders.
Your Majesty...▼
I am the empire's servant.
I am Your Majesty's vassal.▼
I am General Selena, the
Fluorspar of the Grado Empire.▼
