Part 26: Chapter 4 Sacred Phase

Chapter 4 Sacred Phase

Our current situation is...

Our forces are routing the enemy. If things continue as they are, all is well.

Do you wish to know the status of our Einherjar?

Nothing new with Llewelyn. He's really advancing the ranks slowly.

Belenus still has our highest Hero value, as well as reaching the highest possible rank for an Einherjar. He also has a new conversation.

You are a good and proud man, but are you a fit enough warrior?


I have no complaints about your fighting abilities. What worries me is your fortitude. You demand high moral principles in battle and seek justice by your actions. But a battle is no place for dreamers.

That's all I have to say.


I think the earliest you can get this conversation is in Chapter 4, since the Einherjar don't rescue Tyr til the Sacred Phase in Chapter 3.

Janus also has a new thing.

...If you wish.

Good, let's go!


It appears so.

Janus, if you continue to improve, I may not be so lucky next time.

Belenus gets Hero points for getting a lecture, but Janus gets them for tying with a god specializing in archery.

Here's Kashell, who's disappointed us all by not having put on that dashing shade of rouge. But let's see his conversation with Eir.


...Kashell, you should learn how to fight a little bit more cleverly.


You are too direct. Perhaps I should say focused. Keep it up and... you'll get killed.

I don't believe that.

Well, it's true.

In any case, you should place more value on your life.


And here's Kashell discovering an enemy unit.

We've got to know the fort know that the Vanir forces have come this far. But someone needs to stay here and keep watch. You're faster than me, so you should go. There's no time to argue.

Yeah, I know.

And finally, the mission for the Sylvan Bow.

If we are to have any hope of winning this war, we must have the Sylvan Bow. Go with Loki to Alfheim and retrieve the Sylvan Bow right away. I do not think the Light Elves will hand it over without a fight. If they give it to you peacefully, good. If not, do what you must...

Negotiator works to our favour here. I'm not completely sure, but I think if you don't have enough Angel Lips the Einherjar is forced to fight them (and has a chance of dying if his Hero value/equipment isn't good enough).

Lenneth, about your performance...

It is magnificent.

The Lord Odin is pleased with you.

Another Bracelet of Zoe and Coin of Fortune, as well as some really nice Sorcerer stuff? Oh Odin, you charmer.

Lenneth, I have a request to make of you...

Send us an Einherjar skilled at swimming. We need someone who can issue battle commands. We need swordsmen. Send us a warrior who knows how to wield a blade.

Halfway there! Let's see who we've got this time.

Listen: Spiritual Concentration 11

"Even the kids are worrying about me. What's wrong with me?"

"I don't want to be left alone again."

"They sent half the army!"


"It hurts!"

"I don't want to die!"


"You can't just leave me!"

Listen: Spiritual Concentration 12

"Please, I beg of you sir! Please, keep this a secret!"


"He he he he he. I see, I see. That's how it is."

"Still, how could you scam this one like that?"

"Before the battle begins, Magnus will perform a rite of blessing to bolster the troops' morale. This will be our only chance. Leticia, back me up. If this goes any further, the order of knights will be-"

I gotta be honest - this was a really hard one to make out. The second last audio bit (How could you -blank- this one like that?) I'm not 100% sure on. If anyone has a clear reading on that let me know.

Listen: Spiritual Concentration 13

"Who the hell are you?!"

"In my whole life, ain't nothing good ever happen to me!"

"This is a variety of cactus. It blooms over one night alone, and only for a few hours."

"W-who is it? Who's calling me?

"W-wait! Hold up a sec!"

"I got it! I got it! Ahahahaha!"
