Plot

Main article: The Golden Guardian/Script

Claude is only able to rally Judith, the Hero of Daphnel, and soldiers from Goneril to defend Derdriu. Shez and Arval lament the bureaucracy inherit to the Roundtable, making it nearly impossible for them to act decisively in times of crisis. Claude declares his plan is to use the Alliance's knowledge of the terrain to harass and delay the Empire on their way to Derdriu. Eventually, Ferdinand and the Imperial army arrive to lay siege to Derdriu. Holst arrives to reinforce the defenders, and together they are able to drive the Empire off. In the aftermath, Gloucester soldiers launch a surprise attack on the Great Bridge of Myrddin and retake control. Claude admits that he, Count Gloucester, and Count Ordelia planned this double-cross from the very beginning, contingent on Claude holding Derdriu. He declares that the Alliance must annihilate the Imperial presence inside the Alliance before Count Bergliez can reinforce them.
