Gerik/Joshua support

北米版ファイアーエムブレム聖魔の光石 "the Sacred Stones" の支援会話(ジスト/ヨシュア)。

Support level C

Joshua
You're Gerik, right? Head
of that band of mercenaries?▼
Gerik
Where's your respect? I've got
a title. Use it.▼
Joshua
Oh... My mistake. Pardon me.
I'm Joshua.▼
I heard you once commanded a band
of over a hundred mercenaries.▼
I've been wanting to talk to you.▼
Gerik
Huh. So that's what you're heard, is
it? You look a bit on the rough side.▼
Yeah, I can see it in your eyes. You're
no ordinary swordsman, are you?▼
Joshua
...It's just like they said.▼
You're a natural leader. Commanding and
observant--it's a rare combination.▼
Gerik
Ah, thanks. So what brings you
over here anyway?▼
Didn't just come to say
hello, did you?▼
Joshua
You ARE a sharp one.▼
Gerik
Not half as sharp as your sword,
from what I've seen out there.▼
Joshua
Actually, I'm here with an offer,
but I didn't want to rush into it.▼
I'd hate to mess this one up.▼
I can't go into the details just
now, but it's a big job.▼
I'm guessing it'll pay pretty
well, too.▼
Gerik
I see.▼
Well, you have me curious. I'm looking
forward to hearing your offering.▼
Joshua
You should be.▼

Support level B

Joshua
Hey, Gerik.▼
Gerik
Is that you, Joshua?
So, I hear you like to gamble.▼
Joshua
You hear right. Care to
try your luck?▼
Gerik
Ha ha ha. I'll pass.▼
But tell me, why do you
like gambling so much?▼
Joshua
I've got my reasons. Mostly, I just
like to believe in my own luck.▼
Gerik
Luck?▼
Joshua
Oh, yeah...▼
See, you can have all the skill in
the world and still have a bad day.▼
It doesn't take much for the most
fortunate man around to have a fall.▼
A royal family at the height of their
power gets betrayed, and that's the end.▼
It's life really, innit?▼
Gerik
Hmm...
You've got a point there.▼
But you know, Joshua, you don't
want to use luck as an excuse.▼
Don't blame luck when you lose a
fight. Blame yourself, but not luck.▼
Renais didn't fall because of bad
fortune. It was malice that did it.▼
You're right--there's good luck and
bad, but it's no excuse for failure.▼
Joshua
Well, that's a good point
you've got there.▼
But I think I'll just keep
believing in my luck for now.▼
Gerik
Whatever works for you.▼
If you're an even match against
someone, sure, luck is a factor.▼
But you're not counting on luck
alone, are you?▼
You're a fine swordsman, and that's
not all lucks doing there?▼
Joshua
You're far too observant.
We're lucky to have you on our side.▼
Gerik
That's the best compliment
a mercenary can get.▼
Joshua
Call it a hunch, but I think this is
the start of a long friendship.▼
Gerik
You think so, huh?▼
I wonder if that's just
a lucky guess.▼
Joshua
Well, I'm a lucky guy.▼

Support level A

Gerik
Hey Joshua, I don't mind a little
friendly gambling with my men,▼
but would you mind not fleecing
them too much? It's demoralizing.▼
Joshua
Hm?
Oh, you're talking about those guys?▼
Man! They wore me out! They just kept
losing and losing and losing,▼
and they still wouldn't give up!▼
If they risk so much on a bet, they
might risk too much in battle.▼
You're their commander. You should
go have a word with them.▼
Gerik
Ha ha ha... Good point. I'll talk to
the boys. But, Joshua...▼
I'm going to ave to win back the
money you took from my men.▼
Joshua
It's about time! I've been waiting
for you to put the challenge to me.▼
Gerik
Oh, I'll do more than
just challenge you.▼
Joshua
So if you win, I'll cough up
your men's money.▼
And if I win...▼
Gerik
What's it going to be?
Come on, out with it.▼
Joshua
I want you to join me when
this war is over.▼
Gerik
...That's all you want?▼
Well, it doesn't sound like your
standard mercenary assignment,▼
but you've piqued my interest.
This sounds like a big bet.▼
I'm not sure what I get you're
after in all this, but...▼
Fine. You've got a bet.▼
Joshua
Great, then let's go...
How 'bout we flip a coin?▼
Gerik
That's it? I'm wagering my
life on a coin toss?▼
Eh, why not? Flip it.▼
Joshua
Heads or tails.
What's your call?▼
Gerik
...Heads.▼
Joshua
Which leaves me with tails.
...Here it goes...▼
Hup!▼
Gerik
......▼
Joshua
...Ready to see what it is?▼
...
Look! It's tails!▼
Gerik
I won. Now, let me have
the men's money back.▼
Joshua
...Wait, you called heads...▼
Gerik
I sure did. But you cheated.
Open your left hand.▼
There--you palmed the coin
and swapped in a fake one.▼
Joshua
...▼
You ARE observant. Not a lot of people can
see through that. You're right. You win.▼
Here, I'll give you back the money.▼
Gerik
Ha ha ha. Thanks, Joshua. I'll
get this back to the men.▼
Joshua
Mind if I ask how you
found me out?▼
I like to think I've gotten
pretty good at that trick.▼
Gerik
Before I became a mercenary, gambling
was my one true love in life.▼
I've had to learn to see through
a LOT of tricks in my day.▼
Joshua
So, wait... You just pretended
not to be interested in gambling?▼
You're really something. You pulled
a fast one on me. Today's not my--▼
Gerik
Not your lucky day? Don't say that, Joshua.
You were just out of your league is all.▼
Joshua
I'm starting to think maybe I was.
But then again, maybe not...▼
Maybe today was just YOUR lucky day.▼
Gerik
Ha ha ha...▼
I like your enthusiasm.▼
And I'm glad you appreciate
my gambling prowess.▼
Joshua
I havn't given up on you yet.▼
When this war is over, let's
have us a quick duel.▼
If I win, you come work for me.▼
Gerik
You're on. Just make sure
you stay alive until then.▼
Joshua
Don't worry. I'm feeling lucky.▼
