Recon Duty 1

Guard
Welcome. Chief Red is waiting for you. Please report to him.
Red
Good work, [NAME]. You're a very skillful commander. More than I had imagined, to tell the truth. Very good. I don't know if that was all the government's doing or not, but since you ran into the Hunters, I'd say it probably was. That should keep 'em from touching the area for a while... Still, that mission was really nothing more than a test. Our struggle has only just begun, so I want you to keep on trying your best. Anyway, my apologies, but your next mission begins immediately. I'd like you to check out a state-of-the-art development outfit on Ragol that's currently being run by the government. You can get the details from the Vice Chief. He's right behind you.
Game
... The quest Recon Duty 1 has been added.
Red
You can get the details from the Vice Chief. He's right behind you. I'm counting on you out there. Good luck.
Vice Chief
Let me explain your next mission. Right now, the government is proceeding with a plan to build a high-speed transit network across all of Ragol. This will only speed up their Ragol development plans more quickly. We want you to put a stop to this plan, as well as obtain data on the pallets used in the Via Tubus high-speed net. Unlike last time, this could get a little dangerous. Please exercise due caution.
Your mission is to halt the government's construction work, and to retrieve data on the pallets used in Via Tubus. You can check your mission guidelines at the teleport. Good luck, [NAME].
Break
Oh, it's you. That last battle... I guess it wasn't bad for a start. Hang in there, all right?
Lura? I team up with her a lot, so I know all about her abilities. You can trust her skill with a riffle. You ought to have her show you sometime... even if she's just training.
What? What was I doing before the Arkz? ...Well, I'll tell you sometime later. I'm not quite that friendly with you yet, you know? We have to build up a trust between ourselves first.
Lura
How's it going with Endu, by the way? Are you getting along all right? That guy is pretty impressive! I almost think he doesn't even need to use any cards at all. I've never seen a swordmaster like him before.
You know what...? I can feel it whenever Break is in trouble. Although I'm a humanoid, somehow I can sense it in me! It must be my heart racing... I, I mean, it's true! I can really feel it!
Huh? Hey... umm... That was a secret just now, okay? You can't tell anyone. Not a single person. It's a big secret!
Endu
Hey, what's up? Commander, you fight pretty well! I'm surprised. You... You'll make the grade, I guess. This could be pretty fun after all, right? In more ways than one, too. Heh heh heh.
I used to be a Hunter, so swords are a good match for me. Break's a pretty sharp guy, and good with swords too... He picks up fast when it comes to new cards fresh out from the lab. And in melee battles, he's got some fine moves. In terms of ability, he's in the upper echelon of the Arkz.
You know, I'd like to hear what you think about them, Commander. the cards, I mean. ...cards... The Hunters we're up against are using them too, after all, right? ...... C.A.R.D. Technology was originally developed on Pioneer 2... so somebody must've stolen the technology... I suppose.
Researcher 1
So you fought with the Hunters for the first time, huh? They're just a bunch of hired guns. You'd better not lose to guys like those!
Researcher 2
There was a time when I was working with the government, actually. I used to think progress was always a wonderful thing... I had never doubted science and progress even the slightest! Now, though, I feel exactly the opposite. Crazy world, isn't it?
Now that I've completely changed my stance from before, I can see things I never could have noticed back then.
Boy next to trading machines
Hey, Commander! How're you doing? Hmm...? Awesome! ...... Well! Boy, it must be tough to be a grown-up sometimes!
Researcher in Card Maintenance Room
This is the Card Maintenance Room. A soft deck is a sign of a soft person. Polish your deck until it shines, and you'll be glad later. Once you get it right, the Hunters you face will mean nothing!
Researcher next to Entry Counter room gate
Have you met Red yet? I think he's in the Command Room across the hall, but if you're done with talking to your team, you may want to see him again.
Mission woman
Huh? Oh, you again! Well? Have you decided to work closer to the people now? Oh, don't worry. It's very simple. I may not look like much, but I'm very popular around here. So, people go up to me every day and ask me to do stuff for them. You know... they give me jobs, you could say. Usually I just take them up myself... but I've been so busy lately, there's no way I can keep up anymore. [press A] So, anyway, I'd like you to help me out a bit. I'll have more jobs next time, so give a holler!
