Esper Mansion

Esper guards
Oh, it's you, Sela! Welcome back!
Esper woman A
This mansion is also cut off from the outside due to the wall of ice.
Esper woman B
Sela! You're being rash again! Just because you were able to get home...
Sela
I'll be more careful in the future.
Esper man A
Sela, how about the town of Meese?
Sela
Yes, well...my friends are doing their best... But ultimately, it's not going to solve anything.
Esper man B
You're safe, Sela. I'm glad!
Sela
Thanks. It's all thanks to these people.
Esper man C
These rooms belong to my friends who are in Meese now.
Esper man with cape A
This is the hall of worship, but with the numerous crises of late, it's been quite unused!
Esper man with cape B
Have you heard!? There's a rumor about a sacred sword which has been passed down in Algo since ancient times! It is said that it will increase the power of the sword's holder many fold!
Esper man with cape C
Have you heard!? There's a rumor about the sacred sword 'Elsydeon' which has been passed down in Algo since ancient times! It is said that it is located somewhere here in Dezolis!

Room 1

Esper old man
Oooo...I'm scared! I'm afraid of that black energy wave! If Lutz is alive, why doesn't he appear, especially at a time like this?

Room 2

Esper man with cape A
This is the training room where we improve our bodies and souls.
Esper man with cape B
It is our desire to get closer to the feet of the reverent Lutz with a clear spirit and a body of steel.
Sela
That's a good attitude! Lutz is the idol of all!
Esper man with cape C
Ohm...Ohm...
Sela
He's meditating. Please leave him alone.

Room 4

Esper man
The people in Esper, they're human too. And if they don't sleep they will die!

Back hallway

Esper woman A
Upon hearing stories about Reshel and Meese, I sent some of my friends, but... I don't have any idea about the conditions there because of the wall of ice. Hey! It's Sela! You were able to make it home!
Esper woman B
I feel it too. An enigmatic wave enveloping this planet!
Sela
Yes...in addition, the closer you get to that Garuberk Tower, the stronger it becomes!
Esper man with cape
The inner sanctuary is beyond this entrance, but the royal guards are protecting it and won't let us in.
Royal esper guard
Sela! You may not pass here without permission!
Sela
Since when do I need permission!? Open the door for us!
Royal esper guard
That I cannot do!
Sela
You pigheaded ohf!
Rein
Let her enter!
Royal esper guard
How dare you! I cannot... Hey! Oh, it's...it's you! Forgive my rudeness! Please enter!
Rudy
Rein...?
Royal esper guard
Please excuse me!

Inner sanctum

Old esper
Ah, Rein! It's good to see you made it back safely.
Rein
Forget the greetings. I'm going in.
Old esper
Oh, yes, of course... As you wish.
Old esper
All is exactly according to the wishes of the reverent fifth one.

(approach stairs)

Rein
This is the inner sanctuary and further beyond... there is a room called Lutz's room.
Sela
That's right. So now, the time has finally come... At last we're going to meet Lutz! Oh dear! Are my clothes clean? How's my hair? Oh, what shall I do. I'm so nervous!
Fal
I wonder what kind of person he is? What do you think, Rudy?
Rudy
Hmm, Lutz.. The legendary magician...
Sela
Eh...what's going on? No one's here... Reverent Lutz! Please show yourself!
Rein
Lutz is not here... He left this world long ago...!
Sela
What?
Forn
No human could live for over two thousand years.
Sela
That can't be! I saw him with my very own eyes! Besides...besides... we all are believers, aren't we? We believe in the legend of Esper, that Lutz lives on and is leading us, don't we?! That's why...that's why we're all trying so hard... he has to exist!
Rein
Sela! Calm down... It's true that Lutz is no longer of this world. But even if his physical body is no more, his spirit lives on.
Rudy
What?
Rein
Before he died, he left his will and memory in the Telepathy Ball.
Fal
Then... you're saying that this ball if Lutz?
Rein
No. He's not here now. But if the chosen person appears, then Lutz's will and memory will be transferred to that person.
Sela
Chosen...?
Rein
So, now...
Rudy
Wait!
Fal
Rein...is Lutz?!
Old esper
That is correct. Rein Walsh... Is the fifth generation Lutz.
Sela
Y...you're... Lutz...? How could that be...
Rein
Listen, Rudy Since ancient times in Algo, there has been a cycle where calamities occur every one thousand years. That's because personification of evil called Dark Force is resurrected every thousand years! Up untill now, every time it occurred, a courageous person would defeat the evil to maintain peace.
Fal
But we definitely did defeat Dark Force at Kuran. Yet, there's no sign of abatement of these abnormal conditions in Algo!
Rudy
So what's going on?
Rein
Algo was shaken a thousand years ago by the explosion in Parma. The delicate balance we were able to maintain was severely upset. This might be a result of that. The 'Black Energy Wave' can still be felt.
Rudy
Are you saying that Dark Force is still alive?!
Rein
That... I don't know. But, I can say that the root of all evil is not yet destroyed! The only thing to do is to defeat it! I chose you, Rudy.
Rudy
Me?!
Rein
I have chosen you as the soldier to fight the inevitable decisive battle!
Rudy
Why... Chose... Me...?
Rein
That's right.I felt that you are a man of potential. We will soon find out if my judgment was correct, Rudy.
Rudy
Oh, great!
Rein
Well, that's the story. Sorry I kept it secret all this time. We'll keep on cooperating with each other, right?
Rudy
Ah, yeah.
Rein
Anyway! We've got to go to the Garuberk Tower! That's where the answer lies!
Old esper
There's a man-eating tree that obstructs those who try to pass. But if you use the 'Eclipse Torch' you will be able to destroy it.
Rein
OK, our destination is decided! It's off to the Gumbious Temple.
Old esper
The Dezolisian temple is located in the mountain valley west of here.
Rein
We're off. Come on, Rudy, stop looking so dazed!
Sela
How disappointing that Lutz would be so insensitive!
Rein
Sorry about that. I've always been like this!
Sela
Waaaa.
Old esper
I pray for your safety.

(inspect Telepathy Ball)

Rudy
Telepathy Ball... Lutz's memory...
Rein
I've inherited it now... That's what it means.

Back hallway

Esper man with cape
You've entered the inner sanctuary? Who on earth are you?

Room 1

Old esper man
Oooo...I'm scared! I'm afraid of that black energy wave! If Lutz is alive, why doesn't he appear, especially at a time like this?
Sela
He's here, isn't he.
Rein
Shhh!

Room 2

Esper man with cape B
It is our desire to get closer to the feet of the reverent Lutz with a clear spirit and a body of steel.
Sela
...that's what they say!
Rein
What are you trying to say?

Gumbious Temple

Second floor

Head priest
What? That won't do! The holy flame is something that should not go beyond this gate! Even if it is the wish of Lutz, to lightly lend out the torch, it is not acceptable to me!
Rudy
Boy, you just don't get it do you! Didn't I explain the situation? The future of the entire Algo system is hinging on this!
Head priest
Won't do, won't do! What can't be can't be! Huh? What's that?
Xe-A-Thoul A
Ha, ha, ha, ha! I'll take that, thank you very much!
Rudy
What the heck do you think you're doing?!
Xe-A-Thoul B
Ha, ha, ha, ha! We are beings who live in the Air Castle!
Xe-A-Thoul A
Hey, you... the one dressed in white! If you're Lutz, you remember, don't you?
Xe-A-Thoul B
You know who will be waiting for you at the Air Castle!
Xe-A-Thoul A
I'll take possession of the Eclipse Torch!
Xe-A-Thoul B
If you want it back, then come and get it! That is, if you don't mind losing your life!
Xe-A-Thoul A
Ha, ha, ha, ha!
Head priest
Ahhhhhh What a disaster! The flame which we hold holy has been stolen... It's my punishment for being so narrow-minded! Oh, how am I to bear the responsibility for this...
Rudy
Don't get so depressed!
Rein
It was taken by force. It's not your fault.
Rudy
All we have to do is go and retrieve it!
Head priest
Oh, oh, would you really? Th...thank you very much!
Rudy
But in exchange, you'd better lend it to us after we recover it!
Head priest
Oh, oh, of course...yes! No question about that!
Fal
Rein, about the Air Castle? You said you know about it.
Rein
Oh yes. It's in Lutz's memory, to be precise... It's a castle that is floating in the skies of the planet Parma a long, long time ago!
Fal
The planet Parma! In that case, it would have been destroyed a thousand years ago!
Forn
The planet Parma exploded, and there's only an asteroid belt left where the planet used to be.
Rein
Could it be that miraculously, the Air Castle survived, and even now it's in the midst of the asteroids?
Forn
The probability of that is very low. At any rate, I will check it out with the sensors on the Landale.
Rudy
Rein, I have one more question... Who is that 'Person' those witches were talking about?
Rein
The first generation of Lutz and his companions fought a man in the Air Castle... That man's name is Lashiec!
Rudy
So that's who they mean?
Rein
But, I thought Lashiec was defeated by the first generation of Lutz! I'm don't know what we'll find until we go there.
Head priest
I wish you well!
Dezolisian man A
Waaaaaaaaaaaaa.
Dezolisian man B
The treasure of all Dezolisians has been stolen! What should we do?
Dezolisian man C
Wh...what total disrespect to steal the Eclipse Torch so openly!
Rudy
You're unsteady, sir. Here, pull yourself together.
Dezolisian priest
Oh, that such a thing could happen because of my inattentiveness!

First floor

Dezolisian priest A
I want to say 'welcome' but the Eclipse Torch is...
Dezolisian priest B
The holy flame gives us strength. That it is lost is...
Dezolisian priest C
'One day, the flame of the Eclipse Torch will reduce all that is unclean to ashes.' I wonder if this legend is true?
Dezolisian man A
Oh horrors! Our holy flame has been Stolen!
Dezolisian man C
Oh, what a shall we do? The Eclipse Torch is...
Dezolisian woman A
That light must never be lost. Please, my dear Parmanian. Bring back our holy flame!
Dezolisian woman B
Oh, what shall we do?

Spaceport

Forn
Well then, let's go ahead and search for the Air castle. I'm getting something. Although very slight, it is definitely something.
Fal
Can you take a picture?
Forn
I will try.
Rudy
That's it!
Rein
That's the Air Castle alright!
Rudy
It has a spooky atmosphere.
Sela
Ooooh, are you getting a little scared? Huh, Rudy?
Rudy
Don't...don't be ridiculous! We're going in!

Air Castle

Forn
There is evidence of normal gravity and breathable air! The possibility of it being a natural occurrence is virtually nil. It would be practical to view this as an artificial condition.
Rudy
We are greatly honored by your visit to us. Huh!

(inspect illusions)

Sela
It's the rascals who stolen the Eclipse Torch! They're illusions?
Rein
It's not just any illusion... There's an invisible barrier!
Rudy
So that means we've got to find the real thing and defeat them!

(approach Xe-A-Thouls)

Xe-A-Thoul A
Ha, ha, ha, ha! You've come! However...
Xe-A-Thoul B
Ha, ha, ha, ha! We have no use for anyone but Lutz!
Xe-A-Thoul A
Ha, ha, ha, ha! We don't need him to do anything.
Xe-A-Thoul B
I will mock and kill him with these very hands!

(open chest in last room)

Rudy
Oh no! This torch is a fake!

(defeat Spector)

Lashiec
You've finally come... Lutz!
Rein
So it was Lashiec after all!
Lashiec
Heh, heh...I've waited... I've waited for this moment!
Rein
Lashiec! Why are you, reincarnated in a figure like that?
Lashiec
It's revenge! Lutz! You...and all who are helping you... I'll give you all endless pain! I'll administer death to you all! That's why you've come back to me! You'll become a figure like this! You'll become a being that can't set foot out of my castle!
Rudy
So that's why you called us here?
Lashiec
Heh, heh...Oh joy. That you have responded to my invitation... I'm in my present existence so I can cut your throats!
Rudy
He's coming towards us!

(defeat Lashiec)

Lashiec
Ahhhh! You fiend, Lutz! You may have gotten me, but I'm never going to let go of...
Rudy
Oh! The Eclipse Torch?!
Fal
Ah!
Sela
We've done it! We've retrieved the Eclipse Torch!
Lashiec
I'm melting! Once again, my body is melting! But, even with this, I cannot die! I will reincarnate over and over again. I must work for 'Him!' If you want to really defeat me, you'll have to destroy 'Him!' Otherwise, I will eternally be bringing calamity to the future of Algo!
Forn
The air castle is crumbling!
Rudy
We've got to escape quickly!
Forn
There will be a shock wave. Everybody! Prepare youselves!
Rein
Lashiec... If you think about it, he's pretty pathetic... He was seduced by an enormous power... but it turns out that he is but a puppet!
Rudy
Enormous power? Is that the 'Him' that Lashiec was talking about!?
Fal
Is...that Dark Force?
Rudy
So... he hasn't been destroyed yet?
Head priest
Ah, it's really the Eclipse Torch! What a feat that you've retrieved it. I have no qualms about lending the torch to people like you. Please use this holy flame to get us away from this evil road.
Rudy
All right! Let's hurry to the forest of the man-eating trees!

Gumbious Temple

Second floor

Head priest
I wish you well!
Dezolisian man A
Oh, you have retrieved the Eclipse Torch. That's wonderful.
Dezolisian man B
Be it as it may I'm glad it turned out well.
Dezolisian man C
Oh, hurry and finish whatever you need to do and give it back.
Dezolisian priest
I'm so relieved. Now I can get back to my training with peace of mind.

First floor

Dezolisian priest A
Oh, you have reclaimed the Eclipse Torch!
Dezolisian priest B
You're going to bring our flame back? You must never handle it with disrespect.
Dezolisian priest C
'One day, the flame of the Eclipse Torch will reduce all that is unclean to ashes.' That time may be now.
Dezolisian man A
My dear Parmanian, if you say you'll get our treasure, please follow through on your promise.
Dezolisian man C
Oh, thank goodness.
Dezolisian woman A
Ah, I'm sure we can entrust people like you with the holy flame.
Dezolisian woman B
Now I feel safe. Thank you very much.

Dezolis overworld

(approach man-eating trees)

Fal
Hooray!
Sela
It's been a long mission, hasn'it?
Rudy
All right! Now let's get to the Garuberk Tower!

Garuberk Tower

(approach Dark Force)

Rudy
What's that?
Fal
Is that Dark Force!?
Rein
It sure is!
Forn
Comparing search data... It is not similar to any object in Kuran.
Fal
So there were two Dark Forces?
Rudy
Just as Raja said, so this is who has been creating havoc in Dezolis!
Rein
It's not just Dezolis. It's the entire Algo solar system he's messing with!
Forn
Dark Force has sensed our presence. He is approaching us!
Rudy
Exactly what we where hoping for! Let's go, everybody!

(defeat Dark Force)

Rein
We've done it, Rudy.
Rudy
Yes...
Fal
The storm...has subsided! The sky!
Rudy
It's beautiful...
Rein
The Black Energy Wave has also stopped. I suppose the patients of Meese will already be on their way to recovery.
Sela
And now, it's finally over.
Fal
Oh yes.
Sela
Thank you. It's thanks to your cooperation that this was possible. That was pretty presumptuous of me to think that I could do it alone.
Fal
No problem. I'm glad for you, Sela!
Sela
Now! I shall return to Meese. There's still a lot of work ahead of me! So long, Rudy. You're quite a darling, it's as though you're a little brother!
Rudy
What! Don't be ridiculous!
Sela
Hee, hee...that's what's so endearing about you. Good bye, everybody! Good bye, Lutz! You were a little different from my expectations, but you certainly did not bring shame to that name! We'll meet again, won't we?
Rein
Huh? Oh, oh yes.
Sela
So long! See you again!
Fal
She's gone.
Rudy
She called me her little brother. Am I so undependable?
Rein
Well, you have improved some, but you're still equal to me!
Rudy
Well, I can't compare with you. After all, you are Lutz!
Rein
You want to get whopped again?
Fal
You guys don't quit, do you! What was that? It's over at the Gumbious Temple!!
Rudy
What is going on? We've defeated Dark Force!
Rein
At any rate, let's go and see!

Ryuon

Outside

Dezolisian man F
I just heard a rumor that I even hesitate to say aloud... It couldn't possibly be true, could it!
Dezolisian woman C
The snow storm has subsided! Thank goodness!

Gyuna's inn

Dezolisian man C
I heard they have really good drinks here, so I traveled far to come here... But the ice won't melt even though the snow storm has subsided and I can't get home.

(ask Gyuna about the snow storm)

Gyuna
I don't know if it was the call of the heavens or the screams of the earth, but suddenly the snow storm stopped. But according to stories I've heard, Gumbious Temple has... No, no! It can't be true.

(ask Gyuna about the Garuberk Tower)

Gyuna
But, what d'you know, apparently the Garuberk Tower has disappeared. And it's because of its disappearance that this snow storm has subsided. It's said that some macho-looking hero took along his followers and destroyed the evil tower. Who could that have been? I can't think of anyone who would fit that description.

(ask Gyuna about Raja)

Gyuna
Raja has fallen, and according to rumors, Gumbious Temple has... No, that must be a lie. Why do all these horrible things happen?

House 2

Dezolisian woman
The snow storm has stopped. Now we should be able to travel to and from other towns again.

Zosa

Outside

Dezolisian man C
The Garuberk Tower? I've heard rumors that it has disappeared. Is it true that even Gumbious Temple is gone?
Dezolisian man D
You shouldn't say such a unscientific thing! How could a storm subside, or sick people recover, just because a tower has disappeared?

House 2

Dezolisian man
Just as I thought, the snow storm cleared up. Now there's this rumor...it, it's a joke, right?

House 3

Dezolisian man
Breaking news! The Garuberk Tower is located beyond the forest of man-eating trees. Apparently it's not a place that you can humanly get to! Oh? You've been there? Oh, well.
Dezolisian woman B
Hey, know what? They've started to rebuild the Parmanian town that was completely destroyed!

Reshel

Outside

Man A
At last we can breathe easy. We're going to rebuild Reshel back to its original splender! No,even better than that!
Man B
I've heard the armor store is already open for business. I better get going myself!
Man C
If we work hard,those people who abandoned this town will come back.You'll see!
Man D
Are you sure that everything is all right now? There better not be zombies springing out from everywhere anymore!
Woman
There's an endless number of good and bad memories, but... Somehow it's hard to abandon at town were you lived your entire life.

Equipment shop

Man
If I'm going to be open for business in a newly remodeled store, I better have a tempting sale.

House 1

Girl
Daddy has gone over next door to help out. He told me to be good and just wait.

Meese

Man A
This is the town of Meese. The people who were ill are getting better.
Man B
Suddenly, the fever of the patients started going down.
Man C
The people that escaped from Reshel have gone back. They said they're going to start over again.
Man D
There won't be any more zombies, right? Then put those fires out! Out!
Man E
The ill are recovering. I wonder if it's all due to those Esper people?
Woman A
I heard the zombies have disappeared! Reshel has started to rebuild.
Woman C
It's great that the equipment store is open again, but that perfume sure is expensive!
Woman D
I'm so glad that everyone is getting better.

Inn

Innkeeper
Ah finally, I can quit this work that I'm so unused to.

Perfume shop

Shopkeeper
Oh, what an illness it was! I thought for sure I was going to die.

House 1

Young woman
It was heart-breaking to see my child looking so sick... But now, it's all OK, right?

Clinic

First floor

Young man A
I don't know what happened, but everyone seems to be on the road to recovery.
Young man B
Everybody's getting better without waiting for the medicine to be made! I'm so glad!
Esper A
It's good that the illness is gone, but...
Esper B
Sela has come home safe and sound.It's all thanks to you.
Esper C
Whatever, it's cause for celebration.
Esper D
squishy, squishy I'm out of energy.
Esper E
Whew. To the tell truth, I'm quite relieved.
Esper F
...You mean that evil tower has been destroyed?
Patient
My condition has improved considerably.
Innkeeper
Maybe I should seriously consider opening a hospital.
Woman
I'll admit it, I've always dreamed of being a nurse!

Second floor

Raja
It's looking pretty good, but it still needs more work. How tedious!
Rudy
You haven't changed, have you Raja!
Sela
This person, they say his name is Raja? It's great that he's getting better,but... He keeps telling these stupid jokes and what's more he touches people's buns... You guys certainly haven't done a good job teaching him manners!
Rudy
I'm not his guardian!
Esper A and B
Sela has come home. Oh joy!
Head priest
I'm glad that Sela is safe and sound. Though she's so wild, she's everyone's idol!

Esper Mansion

Esper guard
So you're a friend of Sela. Please come in.
Esper man A
The snowstorm has subsided, the wall of ice... It will take time for things to get back to normal.
Esper man B
When Sela gets upset, she acts before she thinks!
Esper woman B
Sela is basically a good daughter, but once she's set on something, she has a one-track mind...

Room 1

Old esper man
I understand. Even though it may weaken the black energy wave will not disappear!

Room 2

Esper man with cape B
I must discipline my spirit to be able to save Algo!

Back hallway

Esper woman A
The weather should improve a little with this.
Esper woman B
Just when I thought the enigmatic wave was decreasing, there was that big explosion sound ...what was that?

Jut

Dezolisian man A
Welcome to the town of Jut. Actually this is no time for niceties! The temple is...
Dezolisian man B
There was a tremendous sound of the earth rumbling! What on earth was it?
Dezolisian man C
Oh no!
Dezolisian man D
This is the end of the world! Ahh! What am I to do!?
Dezolisian man E
There was a sound of a big explosion in the direction of Gumbious Temple!!
Dezolisian man F
I'm glad that the winds have died down, but... It sounded like there was a big explosion in the direction of the Gumbious Temple.
Dezolisian man G
What is it? What is it? What the heck has happened!?
Dezolisian man H
What the heck is going on with this planet?
Dezolisian man I
It seems like some major crisis has occurred! What's going to happen to this planet?
Dezolisian woman A
Regarding the Gumbious Temple, is it true that it just vanished?
Dezolisian woman B
Oh no, not the Gumbious Temple! It's the source of our strength!

House 4

Dezolisian woman
I wonder if the holy flam is safe?
Dezolisian man
The Gumbious Temple has vanished? I told you, you shouldn't believe rumors.

House 5

Dezolisian woman
This house has somehow or another survived.
Dezolisian man on second floor
What? It sounds like there's some commotion outside, but I don't know anything.

House 7

Dezolisian man
No way am I going to accept your word! Don't you dare open that door and come in!
Dezolisian woman
Now calm down! You're so short-tempered! People won't trust a person who changes what they say from one day to another!

Temple

Dezolisian man A
Things have been strange on this planet recently! What on earth is going to happen in the days to come?
Dezolisian man B
Gumbious Temple? Such a disrespectful thing couldn't have happened. Waaaaa
Rudy
Calm down! Pull yourself together!
Dezolisian man C
What on earth?
Dezolisian woman A
Oh, that Dezolis may be saved!
Dezolisian woman B
The only thing we can do is to pray. It makes one kind of down-hearted...when you come to the realization of what a powerless existence we lead.
Priest
The Gumbious Temple has disappeared?! Dear me... We must not get flustered. It is precisely a time like this that I must be strong and reliable!
Fal
You're so wonderful, Mr. Priest!
