Part 18: Chapter Eighteen: Attack Ship
: Captain! The plan worked we took the Dark Dragons by surprise and seized their ship.
[Captain: Well, Ill be! A Dark Dragon vessel will take us to Scande much faster than Mr. Rosss ship!]
: We must work together to protect our city.
: Such power should not be used for war and destruction!
: Having felt only the barest fraction of such power, I have to agree. Such abilities could tear the world apart if used for war.
: Lets go!
: Hey, uh I know its kinda sudden, but
: You want to come with us?
: Yeah. I mean Ive been thinking. If the Dark Dragons were willing to attack Auria, they sure as hell wouldnt hesitate to wipe Bleak off the map. Its a hole, yeah, but its still my home. Plus, Scande is probably gonna be locked up tighter than ladys sense of humor, so youll need a guy who can crack open doors.
: Of course wed welcome your help, Karn.
: Hmph. Just make sure you keep your paws off my belongings.
: Thanks, fearless leader! And its fine, lady, its not like you have anything useful anyway.
: Oh, its the fish man scammer. Hey there, buddy.
: Why should we help someone who took advantage of the Dark Dragons attack to engage in some petty profiteering?
: Cmon! The more the merrier!
: I dont care.
: Thank you. I wont be a burden. I promise.
: Raise the anchor!
: At last, were at sea. Its been a long trip with many delays, but Scande is just over the horizon.
: Ryu, there you are. I spoke with the Captain, and he says that we can reach the southern continent in less than a week if this wind keeps up.
: Thats good. No doubt some other delay will crop up, though. They always do whenever we seem to be making progress.
: Dragons blood! Whats going on?!
: Were under attack!
: Dark Dragon ships!
: Im on the wrong ship!
: Put a sock in it, fish man.
: Its one vessel against three, and my crew arent trained to use the canons.
: But weve come so far!
: Theres too many of them! We should retreat!
: If we flee then the city will surely fall under Zogs control.
: Prepare yourselves! The Dark Dragons are trying to board us!
: This ship belonged to my brother. Where is he!?
: Theres a funny story about that. And by that I mean it was hilarious watching our fearless leader fry him to a crisp when he thought he could take us all on singlehandedly.
: Uh, Ryu I know youre ready for a fight and all, but
: Are you serious?
: Not all of us can breathe underwater like you, fish man.
: A-and I cannot swim!
: Dont worry I have a plan.
: Cowards! You will not escape my vengeance!
A fight against two Archers and a Lancer follows. Its not even worthy of the boss music that accompanies it.
: This way!
: I wont let you escape!
Another fight follows, just as pathetic as the last.
: We have you now. Youll know our wrath!!
The first fight is against two Archers. After they go down the main event begins.
: Brother! Please watch over me while I crush these cretinous dogs!
Interestingly enough, Octo is not a palette swap of Squid the latter has a beak whereas the former does not. Honestly, hes not hard at all, particularly since he also shares his brothers limited movepool and weakness to lightning. The usual tactic of spamming Fry and attacking with the thunder dragon is the best way to finish him.
: Brother Ill be seeing you again very soon Im sorry I couldnt avenge you properly but at least the scum who murdered you wont escape alive!
: Lets go!
: Holy crap, this whole place is gonna blow!
: There is not much time!
: Hang on!
