Table of contents

Piata

Student dorms

Caretaker
I thought if I let things alone, they would eventually come back, but they still... Oh, it's nothing, nothing to do with you!
Young man in room 1
'Fail'... I guess it's no wonder considering that I didn't get the report in on time... Boo hoo.
Young woman in room 5
I'm still getting undressed! Get out, get out!

Mile

Outside

Young man B
See that castle beyond the quicksand? I swear that one evening it was there, and the next it was gone. It...it must've been my imagination, right?
Man
Recently, I haven't heard much about the religion I was telling you about. The young people these days are so fickle!

House 1

Young man
I'm studying so that I can enroll in Motavia Academy too.

Tonoe

Outside

Motavian man
This is Tonoe... Hey, it's you guys
Motavian boy
So, did you find what you were looking for? You should be able to find answers to pretty much anything if you ask Grandfather Dorin!

Grandfather Dorin's tent

Dorin
Ah, I believe you've been good to Pike. Thank you.
Pike
I just can't leave Pana here by herself. Forgive me...
Pana
Oh, big brother...

Kadary

Outside

Man
This place? This is the town of Kadary. Nobody comes to visit Zio's church any more. You didn't, did you?
Bald man A
Ah, I hear that Zio is gone now. Well, finally this town should get back to normal now.
Bald man C
The end of the world that Zio was talking about... Perhaps he was talking about the end of himself?
Bald man D
Ah, finally we can drink in the inn!
Young woman
Zio? I...I wonder what it's all about? I hadn't really been going to church, hee, hee.
Fanatic A
Oh, you guys, stop! Even if Zio is defeated, I'll keep on believing in him! Oh...Zio, the holy one... Oh...Zio, the holy one...
Fanatic B
Excuse me, can I ask you something? Do you believe in Zio's teachings?

(if you answer yes)

Fanatic B
Are you blind to your surroundings? Maybe it's time you cooled off.

(if you answer no)

Fanatic B
I'm glad that you see the truth! Something must have happened to me!

Inn

Innkeeper
All those people who came to the church have finally left!

House 1

Young woman
Are you saying just accept your fate...or...what?

House 2

Young woman
At last, our daughter has come to her senses, too!

House 3

Woman
Yeh, you're right.
Bald man
Thank goodness. It's quite a relief that everyone is getting back their senses.

Zio's church

Young woman
Oh dear? How did I get here? Where is this place? Waaa.
Priest
Wh...what on earth have I done?

Kadary, bar

Hunter
I've decided to work here so I can repay my tab, at the inn, I've accumulated!
Barkeeper
Zio will be defeated! With that pronouncement, everyone ran way. They ran out on their tabs, but I'm relieved. There was one person I was impressed with though.

Aiedo

Hunters' Guild

Hunter A
Zio? Come to think of it, I haven't heard much about him recently.
Hunter B
I heard that some hunter or another has beaten Zio! Pretty awesome, huh? I wonder who on earth this person could be!
Hunter E
They say it's OK to use the passageway in the north now.

Nurvus

(inspect terminal)

Fal
So ultimately, this terminal, is of no use

(inspect control center)

Rena
Quickly, to Zelan... I beseech you all!

Zelan

(inspect control center)

Rudy
Is this the central area of 'Zelan'?
Fal
There doesn't seem to be any abnormalities in particular.

(talk to Forn)

Rudy
You...are you Forn? Wow, you're huge!
Forn
In verity, my name is Forn. This is the man-made satellite Zelan, which has complete control over all the environmental systems for all the planets in the Algo solar system. I am the android who manages it all. Fal, finally we meet face to face.
Fal
Yes, Forn! I didn't know that you were so tall!
Forn
And these other people?
Fal
These are my friends Rudy and Rein. They're great pals!
Rudy
Who and who are great pals?
Rein
Whatever. Anyway, glad to meet you.
Fal
Rena told us that the cause for the systems in Motavia to run out of control could be found here... We've come to try to restore the systems, but from the looks of it, it doesn't seem likely.
Forn
That's right. Zelan is not causing those systems in Motavia to run out of control. Then again, we're not managing them here either.
Rudy
What does this all mean?
Forn
Presently, Zelan is losing power. It is the man-made satellite Kuran that is causing the Motavian systems run amok. Originally, Kuran was supposed to play a supportive role to Zelan's functions but, somebody has occupied Kuran and has usurped control.
Rein
Is that so? Since Zelan is at the top of the chain of command...
Fal
Rena must have determined that it was Zelan that had gone awry!
Forn
Zelan's telecommunication functions have become paralyzed, there isn't even a way to communicate.
Fal
So that's why we were incommunicado! I was so worried!
Rudy
So this means we have to go to Kuran!
Forn
Rudy, if it is OK with you, may I accompany you? Zelan is presently completely cut off from all the other systems. it is impossible to do any system restoration from here. I was planning to go to Kuran to get the situation under control.
Fal
Oh Forn, it would be so reassuring if you came with us!
Rudy
Wow...you have a lot of faith in Forn!
Fal
Oh, yes! Forn and Seed were my teachers!
Forn
This current crisis was brought about by my lack of power. I must take responsibility. It seems that Seed has made me take responsibility too...
Fal
Forn...
Rein
Well, why don't we get a move on it!
Rudy
Stop trying to take charge, Rein!
Rein
All right then, why don't you take charge, that is, if you can.
Rudy
What's that!
Forn
Fal...what's going on here?
Fal
Oh, this happens all the time.

(inspect control center)

Forn
The cause for the abnormal conditions in Motavia were in 'Kuran.' Zelan's systems are all functioning normally.
Rudy
So that was it?

(approach door)

Forn
Wait a moment! Presently 'Kuran' is in Stealth mode. You will not be able to locate it with the shuttle's radar. There is a 'Stealth Canceller' in the cargo room on the right. I will go get it.

Nurvus

(inspect control center)

Rena
It's been so long. Master Forn! What? It's not Zelan but Kuran.. Is that right?

Space shuttle

Rudy
What's going on? Something doesn't seem right...
Forn
There is an unidentified energy reaction coming from the engine room.
Rein
Problems in the engine room... that's bad. Well, let's go see what's going on!
Rudy
I told you, stop taking charge! Yikes! Who...who are you!?
Chaos Sorcerer
Oh my, I've been found out already. Well, the end result is thte same whether I sabotage the engine or kill you right here! You'll not be going to Kuran!

(defeat Chaos Sorcerer)

Rudy
Yippee! It's great that we won...
Rein
Well, we're really out of commission now.
Rudy
Rein! Couldn't you have applied a little bit of self-control?!
Rein
Shut up! You're in no position to talk!
Forn
We've gotten off our sheduled orbit. It's impossible to get back in that orbit! We will be able to make a crash landing on 'Dezolis,' the third planet in the system. Shall we try?
Rudy
What do you mean 'shall we'? We have no choice, do we?
Forn
This is true. One crash landing coming up.
Fal
Wheee! A crash landing! Cool!
Rudy
What are you saying! Hey. Hey! Are you OK? Hey!
Forn
Calm down Rudy. The adrenaline concentration in your blood will rise if you get too excited.
Rein
Relax.
Rudy
Why are you all looking so unconcerned?! Yikes!!!
Game
The third planet in the Algo solar system. It's an extremely cold planet covered in snow and ice.
Rudy
Hmmm... We're safe but... Wow! What a flamboyant landing!
Raja
How strange. It's raining machines!
Rudy
Huh?
Raja
You...what on earth are you?
Rudy
Ahhh, it's a Dezolisian. It's the first time I've seen one!
Raja
Answer me, you bonehead! You've destroyed an important temple!
Rudy
Oh, er, sorry, about that!
Fal
Rudy? Is anything wrong?
Forn
It looks like we've crushed someone's house...
Raja
Huh? Who are you people? A girl with horns, and a mechanical doll!
Fal
These are ears, I tell you!!!
Forn
Please use the word android, will you.
Raja
What ever.
Rein
Quiet, old fart!
Raja
Hmm, I see... From Motavia... on a ship that flies. That's extraordinary!
Fal
Ha, ha, ha! What a funny old man!
Rudy
Ah...
Forn
Rudy, this shuttle is done for. It's beyond repair.
Rudy
What shall we do!
Fal
Hey, old man.
Raja
My name is Raja! You'd better remember that, little girl.
Fal
Ah, yes...Raja. Are there any facilities where we can fix this ship?
Raja
None that I know of.
Fal
Then how are you going to fix your ship.
Raja
Hee, hee. I have some welcome news for you.
Rudy
What, what, what, what?
Raja
There's another ship that can travel the skies!
Fal
There are other spaceships in Dezolis?!
Rudy
Tell us where old man!
Raja
Hee, hee, I'll tell, but on one condition.
Rein
A condition?
Raja
This sounds interesting, take me along.
Rudy
What?
Raja
If you do I'll overlook the destruction of the temple?
Rudy
I don't want to drag this old man around with us... what shall we do?
Fal
I don't mind. I like him. He's kind of interesting.
Rein
I don't think we have much choice.
Forn
You made a very practical choice.
Rudy
Oh? Then, let's go! Timing important here!
Raja
Great! Now listen carefully! A long, long time ago, Parmanians came here to Dezolis on a ship that traveled the skies. It is said that the ship still exist in the town of their descendants!
Rudy
Is this true?
Raja
Of course!
Forn
Rudy, under the circumstances, we have no choice but to rely on this information and go there.
Fal
And where is this town?
Raja
It's a Parmanian town called 'Tyler' a short distance northwest of here! Everyone, let's get going!
Rudy
All right, all right.

Raja Temple

Dezolisian Priest A
Raja, sir, are you taking another pleasure trip to the country?
Raja
You needn't come along this time, so make sure you guard this place in my absence.
Dezolisian Priest B
Are you going to be OK without us?
Raja
Oh, it's boring to be staring at the same faces all the time.

(inspect space shuttle)

Rudy
This is the wreck of the shuttle ship. I guess it'll never fly again.
Rein
By the way, it's fault.

Dezolis overworld

Rudy
Wow! What a heavy snow storm!
Raja
This has been going on for three months now. This planet has always had a cold climate, but this storm too much I don't know what to make of it!
Forn
There must be an abnormality in the Dezolian climate control system.
Raja
No, I bet the cause of all this lies in The Garuberk Tower!
Rudy
The Garuberk Tower?
Fal
Raja, how do you know such a thing?
Raja
It's a feeling I have! ...and by the way, the sick are patients!
Fal
Ha, ha, ha!
Rudy
Oh...

Ryuon

Outside

Dezolisian man A
This is Ryuon. If you want to have fun, this is the town!
Raja
I just can't avoid this town when I'm passing by, ha ha!
Dezolisian man B
The owner of the bar is named Gyuna and he knows the most about the situation around these parts. If you want to know something that's where you should go.
Raja
Two squared is... the situation!
Dezolisian man C
The 'Gumbious Temple' is Dezolisians' source of pride. It's the center of Dezolis, and it's the pillar of support for the hearts of Dezolisians!
Dezolisian man D
I've seen Parmanians from time to time, but this is the first time I've seen a girl with horns!
Fal
Oh! How dare you!!!
Raja
Ha, ha! I told you, to normal people, they look like horns!
Dezolisian man E
There are many Parmanian towns in Dezolis and the town of Tyler to the northwest is one of them. This cold weather we're having now is hard even for us. I hate to think how horrible it is for the Parmanians.
Raja
It's hard for them, but they'll survive!
Dezolisian man F
The Garuberk Tower is supposed to exist somewhere in Dezolis... It is said that it was built overnight.
Rudy
Built overnight... I seem to have heard this story before!
Dezolisian man G
Oh, Raja the great one! You are certainly with some strange traveling companions this time!
Rudy
Raja is our strange traveling companion!
Raja
How could you say something like that? I thought we were friends.
Dezolisian man with shovel
Hmm. I've just finished shoveling away the snow.
Dezolisian woman A
Oh, you're a Parmanian. Are you from the town of Tyler?
Raja
It looks like they've flown here from Motavia.
Rein
Arrgh! Will you cut it out, you old fart!
Dezolisian woman B
In the temple to the south, there's a highly virtuous and wonderful priest named Raja.
Rudy
Highly virtuous? Wonderful? Yeah, right.
Rein
I don't think they know you very well Raja.
Raja
What? I'm virtous and wonderful, right?
Dezolisian woman C
Can't something be done about this snow storm?

House 1

Dezolisian man
It's so nice to sit by the fire and listen to Gyuna's stories... The inn is our source of relaxation.

Gyuna's inn

Dezolisian man A
The owner here, Gyuna is very knowledgeable, but he has a terrible old-fashioned accent!
Dezolisian man B
People from all over Dezolis come here and talk of all sorts of things... Gyuna listens to all this and passes the information on... This is where peoples' thoughts gather together and then go out.
Dezolisian man C
I heard they have really good drinks here, so I traveled far to come here... But the snow storm has blocked the roads with ice and I can't get home.
Dezolisian man D
Aiee! What are you doing? Boy, you're a suspicious looking lot. You're making my drink go sour. Don't get too close.
Dezolisian man E
Waaaaaa. I...I was wrong. Please come back.
Rudy
He's a maudlin drunk... What a pain.
Gyuna
Oh my, a first time customer. Ah, you're friends of Raja. In that case, I'll tell you anything. What do you want to know? Do you want to now about the damage from the snow storm?

(if you answer yes)

Gyuna
This snow storm started three months ago, and hasn't stopped. It's been a terrible disaster, hats being blown off all over the place and lips getting chapped!
Rudy
Hats...Lips?
Gyuna
Ahem! But, the biggest problem is the wall of ice! The storm has left snow drifts all over the place, and has created walls of ice. This has divided Dezolis up into parts. We can't get anywhere!

(if you answer no)

Gyuna
Do you want to know about the Garuberk Tower?

(if you answer yes)

Gyuna
It's said there's a tower somewhere in Dezolis where the demons live. As the story goes, the tower suddenly appeared overnight!
Raja
That's it! It's those demons who are destroying the universe! Algo is under a curse!
Fal
I wonder if... what Raja says is true?
Gyuna
That, I don't know. But, being what Raja is, he may be sensing something.
Rudy
And you have no idea at all where the Garuberk Tower is?
Gyuna
All those who've seen it say something different. ...all I can say is that's up north somewhere.
Rudy
I see...

(if you answer no)

Gyuna
You want to know about Raja?

(if you answer yes)

Gyuna
I've known him a long time. He's a weird one...but, he's a skilled magician, and he was well liked at 'Gumbious Temple.'
Rudy
Wow. I can't believe it. That old man!
Gyuna
But, he was tricked by those who were jealous of him, and was banished into a rural place like this.
Rudy
Really... It doesn't seem possible.
Gyuna
Actually Raja himself is quite happy that he was able to get away from that constrained temple! He's a good guy! He's a good friend of mine!

(if you answer no)

Gyuna
Do you want to know about the whereabouts of the space ship?

(if you answer yes)

Gyuna
Are you talking about the space ship that is underground in the town of Tyler? I don't know a lot about it, but apparently, if you take a good look at the grave, a path will open for you.
Rudy
A grave...?

(if you answer no)

Gyuna
Thank you.

(after asking about the space ship Gyuna, opens with...)

Gyuna
Oh, you're friends of Raja. Do you want to know about something else?

House 2

Dezolisian woman
What with this sudden snow storm, the ability to travel in and out of town tends to be unreliable. There seems to be many places where the roads are obstructed by ice!
Raja
I don't know which I hate more you are this snow!
Rudy
I knew it! I was just waiting for you to say that! You're so predictable!
Raja
Ohhhhh. You!

House 3

Dezolisian woman
Oh, great Raja! Thank you for amusing us with your funny wit.
Rudy
...I just feel that I can't keep up with the Dezolisian sense of humor...

Tyler

Outside

Man A
This is Tyler. It's a Parmanian town.
Man B
Hmmph, my wife, she gets to stay home nice and warm! She should see what it's like to have to go out hunting in this weather!
Man C
There's a large grave on the outskirts of town. They say it's the grave of the first chief of this village. I'm sure the old man would know more about it?
Man D
Oh my? It's another Parmanian. How on earth were you able to get through the wall of ice?
Man E
Brrrrrr. What's with the climate recently. This was not a comfortable planet to live on to begin with, but nowadays it's even worse!
Man F
Everyone seems so unconcerned, but we'll freeze to death if we don't do something!
Woman
I hate this snow storm. I feel like my hat is going to be blown away. Such a nuisance!

House 1

Woman
There are other Parmanian towns besides this one, but I've never been to one. You see, I just can't stand cold weather. I don't get out of the house too often, much less go traipsing out of town!
Young woman
Protecting the household is an important job too! I respect both my father and mother.
Boy
Our mom is pathetic! On the other hand, our dad is wonderful!

Equipment shop

Man
Do you know of a metal called 'Laconia?' With Laconia you can make weapons and protective gear that is out of this world! We haven't caught up with refining techniques here so the best we can do is use the low grade 'silver.'

House 2

Young man
What with the storm, our power supply is sporadic. We might really freeze to death.
Young woman
The Parmanians have built other towns too, like 'Meese' and 'Reshel.' We don't trade much with them, but I hope they are doing well!
Old man
Ha, yes, I am who everybody calls the Old Man. This is the place where the Parmanians first landed when they moved to Dezolis a long time ago. It's been said that they named this town after the captain of the space ship they came on. And the story goes that they built a grave on the outskirts of the town in memory of the captain.

(inspect Tyler's grave before talking to Gyuna)

Rudy
'Here lies the great leader Tyler... Touch us... Listen to our voice... Entrust that body to us...' What is this inscription?

(after talking to Gyuna)

Rudy
'Here lies the great leader Tyler... Touch us... Listen to our voice... Entrust that body to us...' So this is Tyler's grave...
Raja
You've been left on your own.
Rudy
Gyuna said to inspect this grave closely, but I don't see anything... There's just this inscription... Ahh!? The plate just moved!
Rein
It moved? Rudy, push the plate even further!
Rudy
OK!
Fal
Wow! Incredible!
Rudy
Maybe there's a space ship down there? Let's go see!

Hangar

Rudy
So this is it! Amazing!
Fal
So this is the space ship the Parmanians used to come here so long ago.!
Rein
Here's an emblem. L-a-n-d-a-l-e... 'Landale!'
Fal
It's called a Landale. What a cool name!
Raja
It's a ship that flies in the skies!
Rudy
So, how is it? Hey, Forn!
Raja
Hey, you! Don't ignore me!
Forn
It's been presevered almost perfectly. With a little maintenance, it can be quite useful.
Rein
Whew! We sure are in luck!
Rudy
Forn, Make preparations for takeoff!
Forn
Roger!

Outside

Man C
What's going on, with this big open area that just appeared next to town? There's been such strange things going on!

Ryuon

Gyuna's inn

(if you ask Gyuna about the spaceship again)

Gyuna
...What's the use now.

Kuran

Rudy
So this is the man-made satellite Kuran that sent the entire control system out of control!
Raja
My head is reeling!
Rudy
Come on, let's go!
Forn
Yes, we must hurry to the main control center!
Raja
You, you...

(open chest with Hijammer)

Rudy
Hello. What's this?
Forn
It's the internal weapon unit for Androids. I surmise that it is the 'Hyper-Jammer' unit.
Fal
'Hyper-Jammer'?
Forn
It is an electronic battle weapon that will temporarily paralyze the AI of machines with strong electromagnetic waves. There seems to be no problem in its specification, let's load it up in my body. Device installed. 'Hyper-Jammer' can now be used.

(approach control center)

Rudy
So this is the main control center?
Forn
I'm going to search for the cause of the abnormality right away!
Fal
Wait! What's that?
Rudy
What? Where?
Fal
Over there! In the shadows!

(approach even further)

Fal
What on earth? This feeling of oppression...!
Rein
Dark...Force!
Rudy
Did you say Dark Force!? You mean the Dark Force who reveived Zio as a god?
Forn
It appears that Dark Force is the cause of everything. Let's remove it.
Rein
Easier said than done.
Rudy
OK! I'm going for it!

(defeat Dark Force)

Rein
Did we...do it?
Rudy
Yep! We've won! OK Forn! Get Kuran back to normal!
Forn
Roger!
Rein
Hmp...
Rudy
Rein, can I ask you something?
Rein
What is it?
Rudy
How did you know...that monster was the Dark Force Zio was talking about?
Rein
Ah! ...er... I've seen it before.
Fal
What? What do mean you've seen it before?!
Rein
I'll tell you sometime... Just wait until then, will you?
Rudy
Well...
Fal
Rein...
Forn
All functions have been recovered. Now all we have to do is make some final adjustments at Zelan. What is the matter?
Fal
Ah...nothing.
Rudy
Let's go to Zelan!
Forn
Everything is OK. All the maintenance systems for the Algo environment are working properly.
Rudy
Well, we've been through a lot, but I guess we've solved everything.
Fal
Wait! Look at that!
Rudy
The snowstorm hasn't stopped? Has the control system for Dezolis has been restored?
Forn
Yes. Everything is in working order.
Raja
I TOLD YOU! Didn't I tell you that the Garuberk Tower was the cause! The demons that live in the Garuberk Tower are creating the snowstorm! Why don't you listen to me once in a while!
Rudy
Uh...hmm.
Fal
Anyway, this means there is some other cause for the snowstorm in Dezolis, right?
Forn
If the snowstorm continues unabated, there is a danger that thr Parmanians and even the Dezolisians will perish.
Rudy
There's no use just sitting around thinking! Let's go to Dezolis!
Fal
Yes! I'll go too!
Forn
As the mission has not been accomplished, I shall continue my responsibilities.
Raja
This is getting interesting!
Rein
Hmmph...unless I go you won't be able to get anything done, eh, Rudy? What with Dezolis in a wall of ice we won't be able to move around freely. What shall we do?
Forn
If we use the 'Ice-Decker' we can break through walls of ice.
Rudy
'Ice-Decker'? What's that?
Forn
In planning for action on Dezolis I had an ice breaking car installed.
Rudy
Why don't you tell us these things sooner?
Forn
I shall load it up in the Landale.
Rein
An unrelenting snowstorm...
