Tournament of Champions
Do YOU have what it takes to fare against Swordhaven's strongest?
The Swordhaven Coliseum is once again accepting challengers for its annual competition.
Test your mettle in the arena, and be rewarded beyond your wildest dreams if you win!
Easy Mode - begins this quest.
*You return to Swordhaven after some time to yourself and come across the notice on the Quest Board in town.*
<Character>: A tournament, huh? Now that's more like it! This'll be a great way to curry favor with the King...
<Character>: ... and if I'm lucky, I'll finally be able to speak to him!
*You walk away from the board while a girl in a tan shroud watches you from a distance.*
*The girl presumably follows you to the coliseum and into the arena to meet your fellow competitors in the arena where the audience cheers on in excitement for the event to begin.*
Announcer: Hear ye, hear ye! Come one and all!
Announcer: Welcome to Swordhaven's annual...
Announcer: "TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS!"
Announcer: Are you all excited? Good!
Announcer: Newcomers and familiar faces alike have gathered here today...
Announcer: ...but only ONE will emerge as the grand tournament champion!
Announcer: This year's winner will receive a hefty sum of gold...
Announcer: ...as well as an audience with His Majesty, King Alteon himself!
*A vertical panning shot is directing on King Alteon himself who is contently watching the tournament. You smile upon getting a glimpse of him.*
Announcer: As you may have... *ahem* ...noticed today, the Rose will be providing us with security during this event.
Announcer: The amount of soldiers have been increased tenfold in order to prevent any potential mishaps from happening.
Announcer: So rest assured—your safety is our top concern!
Announcer: Now then...let's get this tournament underway!
Announcer: We have an interesting lineup here today... Including...hmm...
Announcer: Oho! Now here's a treat!
Announcer: With us today is a four-time tournament champion...
Announcer: A man who has recently returned from a five-year journey across the seas!
Announcer: The undefeated legend himself!
Announcer: Will he take the championship once more?
Announcer: Please give a warm welcome to...
Announcer: FAAAAAAANG BLAAAAAADE!
*Fangblade appears to be cold and distant. He simply stands in his spot without saying a word.*
Announcer: And with that, contestants, please follow me!
Announcer: You'll be sorted into these brackets—
*You follow the other contestants inside one of the brackets until the voice of the young girl catches your attention.*
???: Um...excuse me...
Falwynn: My name is Falwynn. Are you...really... ...the legendary <Character>?
<Character>: That's me! But "legendary" is a bit of a stretch...
Falwynn: You're as humble as they say you are.
Announcer: All contestants! If you have not been sorted into the east or west divisions yet, please come forward NOW!
Falwynn: Oh no, I'm sorry for taking up your time!
Falwynn: Please excuse me!
<Character> (thinking): Interesting crowd...
<Character> (thinking): I sure hope His Majesty's paying attention!
Guard: Ah, you're up first. If you have finished speaking to the other contestants, are you ready to begin?
Jakob: Phew...all right. Gotta keep calm.
Elaine: Don't talk to me.
Sir Ruppenwaffles: ... Perhaps I'm getting too old for this.
Sir Ruppenwaffles: Sir Hup would have a field day if he knew I was still doing this...
Falwynn: Oh, it looks like you're up, <Character>! Best of luck!
Guard: Only members of the tournament's east bracket are allowed through here.
*After the intermission, you enter the arena to prepare for your first match.*
Announcer: Now then...let the tournament begin!
*The screen pans horizontally to show Sir Ruppenwaffles who despite his elderly age, carries his long sword proudly.*
Announcer: In this corner...
Announcer: A veteran contender...and one of Oaklore's finest!
Announcer: Will he dazzle us once more with his expert swordsmanship?
Announcer: Give it up for...
Announcer: SIR RUPPENWAFFLES!
Announcer: And on this side...
Announcer: ...this can't be right...
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, I don't believe this!
Announcer: I don't think there's anyone here who doesn't know who this person is!
Announcer: Is it really him/her?
Announcer: The famed <Class> himself/herself... <Character>!
*A trio of Manahunters and Energizers glare at you sternly for obvious reasons. King Alteon stands up in complete surprise upon the announcement of your name.*
Rose Guard: Please sit down, Your Majesty...
*Alteon takes his seat as told, but not without glaring at the guard himself first.*
Announcer: What an unexpected turn of events!
Announcer: This tournament may end up being the greatest one yet!
Announcer: Now...are the contestants ready?
Announcer: Then you may BEGIN!
Sir Ruppenwaffles: Allow me to show you what true swordplay really is.
*You and Sir Ruppenwaffles fight each other one on one to determine who will move up in the tournament. After a long, difficult battle against the old man, it is you that will proceed to the next round.*
Guard: Congratulations on that last match. Would you like to check on the other contestants? Or are you ready for the next match?
Miles Wright: I've heard the next contestant uses a legendary rapier....
Miles Wright: Its name, "Igiari," is supposed to mean something... I wonder what?
Benjamin: Looks like I lost...
Benjamin: Well, I did my best. No regrets.
Calico: Oh no, I missed my match 'cause of a bathroom break!
Calico: I hope they let me back in...
Anya: Those Rose peons are everywhere.
Faolin: Yeah, it's hard to fight freely with someone watching over your shoulder the entire time.
Anya: Speaking of which...who was that big guy in the stands?
Faolin: The tall one with the cape? Who knows...
Falwynn: You did great out there!
Falwynn: I think you might actually win this!
Guard: Just stick to your proper bracket, and we won't have any problems.
*After the intermission, you enter the arena to prepare for your second match.*
Announcer: Now then...next up is another familiar face!
*A spotlight beams onto a warrior with spiky hair who proudly bows to the audience instantly.*
Announcer: A warrior from Swordhaven's very own court!
Announcer: What surprises will he bring today?
*The warrior blows a kiss to his audience immediately after the spotlight vanishes.*
Announcer: PHOENIX EDGEWORTH!
<Character>: ... ...... .........
Phoenix: <Character>, huh? Let's see if you're as good as they say you are.
*The match between you and Phoenix Edgeworth begins. Confident, Edgeworth gladly dives right into battle, only to meet his match at the hand of your weapon.*
Guard: Ah, hold on. There-someone else is currently fighting. You can watch, if you're interested.
Janitor: Ugh, why are these guys always carving their initials into the walls? It makes cleaning a LOT more difficult.
Janitor: "K.V."? Another no-name loser, I bet.
Kraven: How will I tell the others... ?
Guard: That girl comes from the wilds of Lymcrest, huh?
Guard: I didn't think anyone still lived out there.
*You decide to watch another competitor during your intermission. Falwynn takes on the arena by firing her pistol at her foe, leading to a knockout.*
Announcer: She may be a new face at this tournament, but she's doing a great job so far!
Announcer: Can anyone stop her?
Announcer: Let's find out! Next up...
Announcer: ...is the man of the hour himself! The tyrant of the arena!
Announcer: Are you ready?!
Announcer: Give it up for...
Announcer: She may be proficient with that crossbow, but let's see how Falwynn fares against the best!
Falwynn (thinking): All right...now what should I—?
*Fangblade cuts her pistol in two with one of his axes and kicks her away.*
Fangblade: Out of my way, girly. You're not worth my time.
Fangblade: That tournament championship...will be mine.
*The impact injures Falwynn, but what's worse is that without her pistol to aid her, she is nearly powerless against Fangblade.*
Announcer: Ooh, that looked like it hurt!
Announcer: Now what's this—?
*Fangblade throws another axe at Falwynn with the intent to go for the knockout. Falwynn braces herself for impact, knowing there is nothing she could do until you stepped in the way and flung the axe aside, saving her.*
Fangblade: Looks like fortune favors the fool.
Fangblade: But next time, you won't be so lucky... ... <Character>.
*Meanwhile, within the Ivory Tower, Jaania, sits at her desk, writing a letter. She hears someone knocking on the door and stops writing. She leans forward a bit and closes her eyes.*
???: My Lady. Am I interrupting?
Jaania: No Amadeus.
Amadeus: I'm here with the monthly reports.
Jaania: Go ahead. I could use some distraction.
Amadeus: Right away.
Amadeus: First, Rosewood. There have been some reports of vandalism, as well as some monsters breaking free, but all has been taken care of.
Amadeus: Hansa is very efficient. She will be sending another batch of magical creatures to the Beastmaster soon.
Amadeus: Speaking of Hansa, and moving onto the next subject; the Sandsea.
Amadeus: She had her hand in destroying Sek Duat, the former and undead emperor.
Amadeus: According to her letter, Sek Duat XV came out of hiding after <Character> released a substantial amount of light magic.
Jaania: Ah... so that's what I felt back then.
Amadeus: <Character> then helped her defeat the emperor.
Jaania: I'm... glad.
Amadeus: As for Duat, the town is well protected. No complains, citizens are happy and satisfied.
Amadeus: Moving on; We still are having trouble locating the rebel main base, as well as the new Dravir site.
Jaania (thinking): Kara...
Amadeus: There are a lot of new recruits coming in, more and more people are starting to believe in our cause.
Jaania: Notify Akanthus.
Amadeus: Regarding Oaklore, the usual rumors and occasional bickering.
Amadeus: Amityvale's prospering, our troops are keeping werewolves at bay. Magus Neron is doing a splendid job.
Amadeus: There is, however, a problem.
Amadeus: There are rumors of the vampire queen, and the increase of activity among the creatures of the night.
Jaania: Investigate. Do not engage.
Amadeus: As for Falconreach...
Jaania: I know. I'm respecting Alteon's wishes... ... for the time being.
Jaania: Anything outside the kingdom?
Amadeus: An outpost has finally been assembled at the foot of Kaer Sierra and the mages have begun studying the Fissure.
Jaania: It's about time.
Jaania: Send a letter that I will be arriving soon. I need to see it for myself.
Amadeus: Before or after the ball?
Jaania: The ball?
Jaania: Oh, this... gala for ambassadors and dignitaries.
Jaania: Ugh... after.
Jaania: Why does this tournament have to happen now? I can't focus in these conditions...
Amadeus: My apologies, I almost forgot. An unusual bird, carrying this letter, came in this morning.
Jaania: I do not recognize this emblem...
Jaania: Exactly how unusual?
Amadeus: A blue hawk.
*Jaania opens the envelope containing the letter. She reads it from top to bottom, but her mood turns sour when she reads an unknown passage.*
Amadeus: Is everything alright, My Lady?
Jaania: This... is going to pose problems in my future plans.
*She resumes writing her own letter and finishes it shortly afterwards. She hands it over to Amadeus right away.*
Jaania: Amadeus, send this back as my reply.
Amadeus: To whom, if I may ask?
Jaania: Someone called "The Magesterium". The letter was sent from the Capitol, in Azaveyr...
Jaania: Also, have someone look into this... gathering. They appear to be an influential and problematic bunch.
Amadeus: Right away.
Jaania: How are you feeling, Amadeus?
Amadeus: Pardon me?
Jaania: Are you feeling well?
Amadeus: As well as... I possibly can, My Lady.
Jaania: Is anyone bothering you?
Jaania: That's good to hear.
Jaania: Neron wears them proudly, but I know he's suffering.
Amadeus: I'm not like Neron.
Jaania: I know.
Jaania: You can go now.
Amadeus: My Lady.
*Jaania leans forward once again to take a deep breath as the screen fades to black.*
