Part 3: The Ghostly Side of the Ship Graveyard (DX)Part XIV: The Ghostly Side of the Ship Graveyard (DX)
A familys burden (DX)
Shallie Coming home so suddenly Isnt fair Now Youve found out
This sequence starts off the same as in the base game: a doctor sees Nady, but Lotte can tell her condition is much more severe than theyre letting on. So Lotte goes to Raoul
Who in turn informs her of her mothers history with Perriend, and refers her to the Corporation
And Perriend tells her of her mothers heart condition. Afterwards, in Plus/DX, Lotte goes to Wilbell about this
Hey, what exactly happened? Being lively was your only redeeming feature. Youre not acting like yourself.
I didnt even realize that my mom wasnt feeling well. I was probably just in high spirits, after finally getting important work My mom was hiding her illness for all this time, and supporting me. Yet I
Are you an idiot, Shallie? This isnt your fault. It just means youve got a great mom.
Cmon, pull yourself together. Theres no point in moping around!
B-but What should I do? I want to save my mom. But Mr. Perriend said current medicine wouldnt be able to Is there anything I can do?
Nothing, just talking to myself. More importantly, Shallie. Nothing will change if you just stand around here!
Just do whatever youre capable of for now! If you do that, youll find a path, for sure!
Y-youre right, master! Theres no point in getting depressed about it! Jeez, things really do have a way of happening all at once! Alright, time to do my best!
Hmm maybe I should drop by Mirucas! Still though, I cant help but wonder about who Master Wilbell was talking about when she said "she"
Ideals and Viewpoints
Hey, why do you always say things like that!? I feel bad for Jurie.
This has nothing to do with you, Shal. You dont even know what we were talking about.
Uu, thats true, but I understand some things, too. Youve been acting weird ever since you came back from Central, Miruca. Youre too cold to Jurie.
I havent changed at all.
Thats a lie! True, you were always scowling since then, but you two got along really well! I thought it would be great to have a sister This is making me sad.
Sorry. Maybe I went too far saying it has nothing to do with you.
No, I was just being nosy and causing trouble for you, wasnt I? But if its okay with you, can you talk about it? How you really feel
Thats why I came back here, and I dont want to return.
But my sisters different. She thinks Im forcing myself to stay here. Thats why shes taking dangerous jobs to save up money, so I can go back Even though I dont want her to. She said the important thing is to go back and become a great alchemist. Im tired of her forcing her ideals on me. In the end, my sister doesnt even try to understand my feelings.
I get what youre trying to say, Miruca. But look at it the other way. Have you tried to understand how Jurie feels?
Im not asking you to see things the way she does, Miruca. Im just saying you should recognize that she cares for you and has your well-being at heart.
Ill think about it, Shal. But I wont promise anything more.
Please do! If only I could have realized that sooner with my mom
My mom I just learned that she has a terminal illness. I'm still processing it all. And yet she's dedicated herself to supporting me despite it all
Shal I'll keep your advice in mind.
Anyway, as I was saying, you oughta get a breath of fresh air. So lets take a walk!
What is it?
Well, my former colleague Logy is actually working here now. He studied alchemy in Central, just like you! Thats why I thought you two might get along.
I told her it wasnt necessary and tried to stop her, but she never listens Sorry for bothering you.
M-Miruca! Thats going too far!
No, I dont mind. Its true that there are people like she described.
You arent angry?
Huh, theres a first time for everything. I didnt realize there were people who think the way you do.
Its true that they have things there that people desire, though. Its not right to deny every aspect of Central.
You dont have to tell me, I realize that much.
Well, its not like everyone finds those things necessary. Just because youre from Central doesnt mean youre great.
Thats how I viewed it, too All people care about is that youre from Central, not what you accomplished. I hate that.
The important thing is what you did there, after all.
Still, Central offers a lot of choices, and there are some good people there, too. Dont hate them too much.
Ill think about it.
Ive never seen Miruca act so upfront !
What are you talking about, Shal? Ive always believed in being blunt and honest Anyway, thats enough fresh air.
Yes. Ill see you three again in due time.
Well, I guess this was a worthwhile use of Logys break.
I guess you could say that. Well be headed back to the Union now.
Bye, you two! All of a sudden, everyone left me out in the cold
Shallie! Whats up?
I wanted to visit the Union to see if Raoul had any jobs that needed doing, and I wanted for you to come with me.
An Officials Duty
Hm? Whats wrong?
Logy, do you know what happened to the reports that were here?
Ah, those? I took care of them.
I see, thank you.
Oh, also, these documents
Ah, that really helps.
Still, its a little strange not having an atelier. I feel like I dont have a place to go
Your duty here is to investigate the Dusk, after all. Besides, we already have other alchemists.
I understand that, but
Thanks to this, I have even more work to do than back in Colseit.
Thats pretty evident Youve got dark circles under your eyes. Maybe you should take a little break ?
What are you talking about? No matter how much paperwork I process, it never goes away. It would only increase.
Thats true, but Hold on
N-no way Maybe Im just overthinking it
What are you muttering about? Please take care of these documents next.
T-this mood It feels like we shouldnt say anything to them
Lets come back later Oh! I just realized, we left without taking any jobs from Raoul
We did Hmm Oh! I remember Jurie telling me about a ghost ship somewhere in the Dusk Sea. We might have even seen something like that south of the place where we defeated the Sand Dragon
Good catch! There might even be some hidden treasure there. And there are sure to be monsters there that Im sure Raoul would appreciate us suppressing. And it would be a good change of pace for the resident workaholics
So what are we waiting for? Lets spread the word!
En route to the Trade Ship Graveyard
It wasnt just me. Everyone worked together. Logy drafted the plans for the airship, while Wilbell and my other friends worked to procure the necessary supplies
But thats amazing! I really want to fly through the sky!
You too? I felt the same way I was so elated when I finally got to !
Im getting excited just hearing about it!
Id ridden in a balloon before, but it was completely different
Thats awesome! I wonder if I could see how far the Dusk Sea goes if I could fly? Although, that might be a little disappointing
I dont think so Quite the opposite, actually! Its wonderful to see how small your world really is, and see the whole world going on and on
Ill find a way to fly myself someday !
Im sure your dream will come true, Lotte!
Yeah! Do your best, Shallie!
Ah! I just remembered, Logy just said he was gonna need me for a little something right about now. See you soon!
Is that Solle and Jurie coming up here?
By the way Jurie, do you know Raoul that well?
Pretty much just as a coworker. Why?
They might not talk much, but they seem to understand each other really well!
Yes, thats right. Thats why I was asking
Theres nothing like what youre thinking.
So what is there, then?
I told you
Its just you two seem like complete opposites. I didnt think you would be able to get along at all.
(So thats all it was.)
(S-shell hear you !)
Yup. Its probably just because weve known each other for so long.
Hm, whats the commotion downstairs ?
Hmm. Well, you were using talismans, so I thought youd be familiar with spirits.
Spirits, huh If only something like that were real
They really do exist! Are you stupid?!
Whore you calling stupid?!
Kortes! Dont get angry!
Master! Youre getting too upset!
(What should I do )
Everyone! Weve arrived!
Look! Off in the distance!
That has to be it!
Now for some good old-fashioned spelunking
