Part 35: Don't Leave Us Lise!
"Aww, little sleeping dog looks like Karl."
"Karl? Who's this Karl?"
"My best friend. Baby wolf with no parents."
"Aww, that's so sweet! Where is he now?"
"I kind of killed him."
"Hey, look at that house over there! Let's go inside!"
"I wouldn't cook for two, that's for sure."
"Sigh just don't tell his sister Wendy. It will only make her sad "
"That's pretty sad.. hey, is that a chest?"
"Yeah, but it's empty."
"That Duran guy not only does he leave his little sister alone to go off and fight some wizard, but he leaves an empty chest up here to mess with people too?"
"Wait, what was that about my brother?"
"Kevin.. step away from the puppy, please."
"It's okay. All bark, no bite. Not going to attack me like Karl did."
"Uh yeah, it was pretty terrible, hahaha say, it looks like your drink is empty. You should go get another one."
"This is a really awkward town for us all."
"Maybe that cannon is in place by now but before we go back, I want to visit the fortune teller!"
"Well my life is 99% wandering around and 1% punching things until they turn in to elemental spirits."
"You might just be the strangest person I've had show up in my shop in the last 20 years."
"It's because of the faerie I'm traveling with, really."
"Pfft.. yeah right, like there's a faerie with you."
"You're not going to believe me until you see a faerie, are you?"
"HA! Thanks Faerie. I told her, didn't I?"
"I think I need to go rest "
"Did you somehow miss that your town was also just attacked? I'd think you'd be a bit more concerned about that."
"I don't know about these guys, but I'm definitely feeling a bit uncomfortable here."
"Yeah, bored now."
"I'm kind of feeling the same way."
"Y'know, we're just going to ignore the fact that you used us as test animals and leave now."
"And nobody here will rip your face off. Isn't that nice?"
"Wasn't going to anyway. Cannons are fun!"
"Only smart person in town. Everyone should know that the day is for sleeping and the night is for hunting."
"That's.. disturbing "
"Huh? He left me a lot of stuff when he died, and I have to get rid of it somehow."
"There seems to be a rash of that going around lately "
"This is the best place. If I never go back to the Beast Kingdom, I'm going to live here. There's even a forest nearby."
"You're a pig."
"No, I'm a wolf. It's much better, and a lot healthier in the long run."
"They even have neat weapons here."
"Somehow it didn't look half as intimidating when it was still attached to the Molebear."
Having a few of these would have probably helped a lot dealing with the interminable boss fight that'll be coming up relatively soon. I might just put Kevin on the back burner, however...
This part has no relevance to our characters now, and is just a weird footnote as a result.
"I guess you're feeling a bit more social now?"
"Got to make a living somehow."
"You really mean that?"
"You guys are about the only people going anywhere these days. You're my rum budget."
"Uh.. sure. Just keep on keeping on."
"They might be the most suspicious pair of people I have ever seen."
"I can't help but think I've seen that girl before.. wait, she's leaving now."
"Mountain flower garden?"
"There's no such thing! And you'd definitely better not climb that mountain!"
"You're really abysmal at this."
A few minutes of slaughter later...
"She told us "
"And who are you, anyway?"
"You're awake? This is Rolante's secret hideout."
"We've gathered the remaining troops from the Amazon army here, to retake the castle!"
"First off, it's not a secret if you tell everybody. Second, you didn't answer my question about who you are."
"Our kingdom was ruined by Navarre's forces. I thought I was the only one alive "
"I had been searching for my brother, Eliott, until I heard about this place."
"We we're looking for the Wind Mana Stone! ?
"But there are wind god statues guarding the entrance. You might not be able to get in."
"There's a way to control wnd from inside the castle, but it's been taken over "
"We can help with that, you know "
"Seriously? You're turning down help in this?"
"Yes I have to go now. So stay here, and then leave!"
"Hey, come back here!"
"We're in the middle of a meeting!"
"Like I care!"
"We obviously don't have enough troops for a direct assault "
"Bull! You've got me, and that's enough!"
"I'm sorry, I'm not a military tactician. I never thought I'd be doing this "
"I'd rather ask the sage Jack Daniels."
"What ? No, the actual sage! The one who advised King Richard in how to defeat the Dragon Emperor."
"That makes a lot more sense so where is this sage?"
"It's near Jad, but the Korobokkles REALLY don't like humans."
"That's okay. Two of the three of us aren't fully human, and two out of three isn't bad "
"Yes it is! It's only 33 percent!"
"Leave it to us, really. You can stay here and we'll deal with Sage Quervo."
" Since you insist Thank you, thank you very much."
"Well you'll have to disguise yourselves as Corobokkles that's the only way."
"You can do that if you have the legendary Chibikko Hammer. I think someone in Byzel owns it."
"For a geezer, you are unusually helpful."
"Ehh.. sure, if that helps you sleep better at night."
Kevin Sticks the Landing
Some of you have asked about Kevin's landing with the cannon. Here it is in all its glory.. although the first time you do it, he actually says "Ow "
"I'd rather just go home and sleep. Here, you can have one of my dead grandpa's things."
"As long as it's not his junk."
"Is it me, or did the price go up?"
"Rum's not getting any cheaper."
"They're up to something although one way or another, this means that Lugar failed miserably."
"Right. Whatever you say."
"That's because I'm right here."
"Gah! You trick me!!"
"Ah, but Iwas walking around at the time. So I wasn't in any single place."
Okay. Let me talk with someone a bit brighter."
"Some real big ugly mice invaded "
"I'm too old for this shit. Find the wind spirit Jinn, use his power to spread the pollen from the flowers into Rolante castle. Then, murder the shit out of the Navarre raiders."
"How did you ?"
"I can feel the faerie buzzing around you. And if I don't help you, we're all screwed." Also, you smell mostly human and there aren't any Corobokkle in Rolante."
