Support level C

Joshua
Hey, you're Prince Innes, aren't
you? I'm Joshua. Nice to meet you.▼
Innes
I'm sure.▼
Joshua
Well, now that we know each other...▼
What say we play a quick game
of chance, hm?▼
Innes
Hm? What are you planning
on doing with that coin?▼
Joshua
We're gonna have a little
wager. What else?▼
If I'm going to fight alongside
someone, I want to know him.▼
And there's no better way to get to
know someone than a friendly wager!▼
So... What do you say to a
starter bet of...1,000?▼
Innes
Here? You can't be serious.▼
Joshua
Hey now, I always take gambling
seriously. Always.▼
Whether you live or die on the
field often comes down to luck.▼
Every fight, you're putting your
life in someone else's hands.▼
You should be glad to meet up
with such a lucky guy.▼
Innes
You may rely on luck, but
I prefer raw skill.▼
However, we might as well. Put
your money where your mouth is.▼
Joshua
Now you're talking!▼
Right, here we go!▼
Heads or tails?
What's your call?▼
Innes
Tails.▼
Joshua
Let's see what we've got...▼
Oh, well... It's heads.▼
Too bad, Your Highness. You lost.▼
Innes
What? That's impossible.
I saw--▼
Joshua
C'est la vie.▼
Look closely. See? It's heads.▼
Innes
That's strange...▼
My eyes never fail me, but
I could have sworn---▼
Hm. There seems to be more to
betting than meets the eye.▼
Joshua
Figure that out already?
You're a quick study.▼
Innes
Yeah.▼
Let's try that again.
I'll get it this time...▼

Support level B

Innes
Tails.▼
Joshua
...Heads again.▼
That's ten losses in a row.▼
Innes
I don't care. Next bet.
Double or nothing. Tails.▼
Joshua
Shouldn't you stop soon?▼
Maybe you've got the cash back
home, but you're on the road.▼
And I'm willing to bet you're
not carrying much on you.▼
Innes
No. Keep going.▼
I don't feel like quitting
on a bad streak.▼
Joshua
Fine, fine...▼
But then can we call
it quits?▼
You've let me win enough and
I don't want to bleed you dry.▼
Innes
No. I won't let you leave. Not
while you're still ahead.▼
Hurry up. We don't have the
luxury of time here.▼
Joshua
What's that saying? The cooler
the head, he hotter the bets?▼
Something like that. And you seem
pretty cool most of the time.▼
I guess the old saying is true.▼

Support level A

Innes
Thanks for waiting.
Let's get started.▼
Joshua
You can't be serious.
You want to keep going?▼
Innes
Just flip the coin.▼
Joshua
...Oh, brother.▼
Your Highness, I have a little
admission to make here.▼
You have no chance of winning.
The whole thing is rigged.▼
Innes
Rigged...▼
Joshua
Yeah. You flip the coin
...like this.▼
Then catch it in the hand.▼
I'm the one holding the coin.▼
I can turn it over any way I choose
just by moving my palm a bit.▼
Like this.▼
Innes
Hmm... That's how you did it...▼
I knew you were up to something.▼
It was straining my disbelief that
you could keep winning like that.▼
Strange that I couldn't catch
on to your little trick, though.▼
Joshua
That's nice of you to say, but
I'm sure you must have suspected.▼
There's a guy who hangs out near
a pub in Jehanna. He's real smooth.▼
His secret is to mix just enough
loses to make it plausible.▼
If you ever go there, you'll know
the guy I'm talking about right away.▼
Innes
Interesting. I've never had any
experience with this sort of thing.▼
One only has so much time when he's
groomed to become the King, you know.▼
Joshua
I can imagine.▼
But a king must have a wide range
of knowledge, don't you think?▼
When I was a journeyman, I lost
a lot of money to scams like this.▼
I started learning these tricks so
they couldn't be used on me anymore!▼
It's all rubbish, innit? But it's not
a bad thing to add to your experience.▼
Innes
I must hand it to you, you
have a point.▼
Some things, you can only
learn firsthand, on the field.▼
Joshua
Well, I've given away enough
of my secrets for one day.▼
I'll give you back all the money
I took you for, so go easy on me.▼
Innes
Wait.▼
Joshua
Hm?▼
Innes
There's no need to give it back.▼
That I failed to see your trick
was my own failing.▼
Joshua
You serious?▼
All right. Good deal.
You're a good man.▼
Let's just call this
your tuition fee, eh?▼
Innes
...Wait.▼
Joshua
Now what? What is it this time?▼
Innes
We're still in the middle of the bet.▼
We'll pick up where we left off.▼
Joshua
Are you saying...
you want to keep going?▼
Innes
Naturally.▼
You've revealed your secrets to
me. My luck is bound to change.▼
I feel a winning streak coming on.▼
Joshua
...Oh, brother.▼
Well you're persistent,
I'll give you that much.▼
Call it in the air.▼
Innes
...Tails.▼
