Three separate islands: Fibernia, Caldonia, and Dia. All of these islands are rich in minerals, and mining is the economic backbone. The largest mine is located in Eburacum, in north Fibernia. Roy leads his forces toward Eburacum hoping to learn more about the bandits.
To get to Eburacum, one must pass a castle located nearby. Roy sends a messenger to Sir Nord, lord of the castle, to request permission to pass through his lands. Because Roy and company are in the Isles on Etruria's request, they don't anticipate trouble in gaining Nord's support. But not everything is as simple as it appears...
(At the castle)
Nord: What can you tell me about that spy from the resistance?
Soldier: You mean the dancer called Larum? We threw her in the dungeon, milord.
Nord: Has she told you anything?
Soldier: No. She keeps insisting that she's not affiliated with the resistance.
Nord: A liar, is she? Perhaps I should interrogate her myself...
(Another soldier appears)
Soldier: Sir Nord!
Nord: What is it?
Soldier: There is a messenger here from the Lycian Army.
Nord: Ah, the army that was sent to clean up the bandits on the Isles.
Soldier: It seems that they want permission to pass through to Eburacum.
Nord: ...Lord Arcardo told us to get rid of the Lycian Army in their time here. Heh heh heh... If we impress Lord Arcardo he may see fit to reward us. Deploy the troops and finish them here!
Soldier: Yes, milord... And the messenger?
Nord: Kill him.
Soldier: Understood, milord.
Nord: Be sure to deploy the ballista. Use it to defeat the Lycian Army before they even reach you!
Soldier: Yes, milord.
Nord: Just make sure the enemy doesn't get hold of it!
(In Roy's camp)
Merlinus: Lord Roy, soldiers are flowing out from the castle.
Roy: Are there bandits around here?
Merlinus: No, they seem to be heading toward us, actually.
Roy: ...What about the messenger?
Merlinus: He hasn't returned... Which may mean the worst...
Roy: He hasn't returned? Why is Sir Nord attacking us?
Merlinus: The enemy draws near... Lord Roy, what are your orders?
Roy: ...I guess we have no choice but to fight. We might learn something if we can reach the castle.
Merlinus: Yes, milord. You're right.
Roy: All right, storm the castle! But have mercy! Some of their soldiers may be willing to listen!
At the start of turn 4, enemy phase
(Inside the village)
Middle-Aged Woman: Geese... You're really leaving?
Geese: The lord of that castle killed my mates. I won't let their deaths go unavenged.
Middle-Aged Woman: You mean that crew that was always with you...
Geese: Yeah... They were taken to the mines and told that they would be given work. But they were all worked like slaves until they... died.
Middle-Aged Woman: ......
Geese: Maybe they weren't the brightest bunch, but they were good people... And then they were killed... just like that...!!
Middle-Aged Woman: Do you intend to avenge them on your own?
Geese: Is there something wrong with that?
Middle-Aged Woman: No... But I thought you were going to go back to your merchant business.
Geese: Yeah, well, I've got bigger problems now... Once my mates get their revenge, and once the war subsides, maybe I will.
Middle-Aged Woman: ...We won't forget you, Geese. You and your crew risked your lives to get us food and supplies. If you ever need anything, we'll be here.
Geese: Maybe I'll take you up on that, if I'm still alive. ...Thanks.
(Geese leaves the village as an allied unit)
At the start of turn 6, enemy phase
(At the castle)
Nord: Gonzalez! Gonzalez, where are you?!
Gonzalez: Here... I here...
Nord: There's a village to the north, right along the mountain. Do you understand?
Nord: It may be a resistance base. I want you to go and burn it to the ground, village and all.
Gonzalez: Village and all...
Nord: Good. You understand. This is the only use I have for a lump such as you. Now get going, you halfwit, before you forget your orders.
Gonzalez: I... I...
Nord: Forget how to speak? Are you trying to say something?
(Gonzalez leaves and arrives in front of the castle as an enemy unit)
Nord: Such a monstrous face, and yet such a needlessly compassionate heart. He will learn the value of destroying a village firsthand!
Roy talks to Geese
Geese: Yeah? What? You got something to say to me?
Roy: I want to ask why you're fighting against the soldiers.
Geese: Who wants to know?
Roy: Roy, leader of the Lycian Army. We're here on behalf of Etruria...
Geese: You're with Etruria?! Then you're with the enemy. Get ready to die!
Roy: Slow down! We're fighting the castle's troops too.
Geese: And yet Etruria sent you? I don't understand.
Roy: I don't either. We were sent by Etruria to get rid of the bandits here, but something's strange.
Geese: ...You say you're fighting the castle's troops. I'm for hire, if you'll take me.
Geese: I'm a seafaring man, so I know both the land and sea around the Isles. You look a bit lost, so I could be a good guide for you.
Roy: That would help, but why?
Geese: I want to help with your mission. To be honest, I'm a pirate, so I'm probably the type you were sent to get rid of. But I only go after the rich. They have more than their fair share anyway.
Roy: Well then, if you'll join us, we're pleased to have you. We don't know this area at all, so it's been difficult thus far.
Geese: Sounds like we have a deal! Leave it to me!
Geese: ...This is it, lads. Can you taste it? You'll have your vengeance. And after you do, I might just tag along with this Roy fellow for a while...
(Geese joins the army)
Lilina talks to Gonzalez
Lilina: Excuse me!
Gonzalez: W-what you doing?! I am enemy!
Lilina: I know... But there's such a look of sorrow in your eyes.
Gonzalez: ...There is village near mountain. You know?
Lilina: Yes, I know it.
Gonzalez: Tell people escape. I have order. Destroy village. I...
Lilina: What? Don't! The villagers are innocent...
Gonzalez: No. It order. I must.
Lilina: It sounds to me like you should leave the person who gave you that order.
Lilina: Yes! You can fight with us. We're protecting the villagers.
Gonzalez: ...No... I monster... People mean to me... People throw stones... People say, "Go away!"... "You a monster!"... Not human...
Lilina: That's horrible! Of course you're human! You're a very kind-hearted man. I can tell. Please, come with us. Don't be afraid.
Gonzalez: Me afraid? I never afraid! Everyone afraid of ME! I not afraid!
Lilina: No. You ARE afraid. You're afraid that people will throw stones and call you a monster.
Lilina: But you don't have to be afraid of us. Everyone in our army is nice. They won't do that to you. Be brave... Take that first step, and you'll never have to be afraid again.
(Gonzalez joins the army)
Middle-Aged Woman: I'm worried about Larum. I hope she's all right. She smuggled us weapons so we could defend ourselves. Even when we begged her to hide, she refused and kept helping us. Here's an axe that she brought us. It's a strange one... It's strong against swords, but weak against lances! I'd gladly trade it for her safety, though, so please, take it...
The house by the village
Elderly Woman: Brigands and pirates... They were all just as innocent as anyone when they were young. Maybe if you spoke to some of them, you could make them understand.
Nord enters combat
Nord: You made it all the way here. But I shall take your pathetic lives...
Nord: ...Death? I feel... my life... draining... away...
Merlinus: Lord Roy... We couldn't find any evidence explaining Sir Nord's aggression.
Roy: But now we know for certain that somebody wants our heads.
Merlinus: I think we should send word to the mainland about this.
Roy: Yes, I'll send a message to General Cecilia.
Soldier: Excuse me, Lord Roy. We found a girl imprisoned in the dungeon. She wishes to speak with you.
Roy: To me? Let her pass.
Soldier: Yes, milord.
Larum: You're Roy? The one who's here to clear out the bandits?
Roy: Yes, that's me.
Larum: I beg you, Roy! Please rescue my friends!
Roy: Whoa, easy there!
Merlinus: Hey! Get off of him!
Roy: C-calm down and tell me everything. You say your friends are in danger?
Larum: My name is Larum. I'm part of the resistance force on the Isles.
Roy: The force that's fighting against the bandits?
Larum: Yes. ...Actually, no!
Larum: That's part of it, but the real enemy is Etruria! They work with the bandits to squeeze every bit they can out of the people here!
Roy: What?! Is that true?!
Larum: The lords living here take people into the mines and work them to death!! They're allowed no rest, even if they're sick or injured.
Roy: ...That's terrible...
Larum: We're fighting Etruria to stop this abuse! Our next plan was to attack the mine at Eburacum and rescue the people there! But... but...!
Roy: Calm down! You can tell me.
Larum: A villager here leaked the details of the plan! He was probably tortured... I have to go to the mines before the resistance is ambushed!
Roy: Then there's no time to spare! We'll help the resistance force and rescue the people being forced into labor!
Larum: Truly, you will?! Thank you, Roy!
Roy: Whoa! L-Larum!
Merlinus: Hey! I said get off of him!
Larum: Here, Roy. Use this sword.
Roy: What is it?
Larum: It's called a wyrmslayer. It's effective against wyvern riders, and it's said it was used against dragons, too. Who can say, though? It might come in handy. It belongs to Echidna, the leader of the resistance. You're helping us though, so you can have it for now.
