*Falwynn stands up after the impact of Fangblade's assault.*
Falwynn: I...don't know how to thank you...
*Two Rose Guards approach as the Announcer asks Falwynn about her injuries.*
Announcer: Hey there—are you okay?
Falwynn: I'll be...fine.
Announcer: Looks like you're hurt pretty badly...
Announcer: Our medical team should take a look at you.
*The scene shortly pans to you, standing behind the Rose Guards.*
<Character>: Why didn't you guys do anything?
<Character>: She could've been killed!
Rose Soldier: ...
Rose Soldier: We have our orders.
<Character>: From who?
*Akanthus is briefly shown as he walks out of another stand within the arena.*
Rose Soldier: That's none of your concern.
Rose Soldier: This tournament will continue. By His Majesty's decree.
*You stare at the Rose Guard for a moment until the Announcer speaks to Falwynn again.*
Announcer: Miss, you're welcome to join me up in the stands once you're ready.
Announcer: You can watch the rest of the tournament from there.
Falwynn: That...that sounds perfect. Thank you.
*After that, Falwynn turns around to talk to you before the next match begins.*
Falwynn: It's up to you now...
Falwynn: I heard what you said back at the city's notice board.
Falwynn: If anyone can convince the King about the Rose's wrongdoing...
Falwynn: It'll be you.
Announcer: Sorry about that, folks! A minor mishap!
Announcer: But rest assured, contestant Falwynn is going to be just fine!
Announcer: Now then...will contestant Melchior please come forward?
Announcer: The east division finals are about to begin!
Melchior: Heh, heh, heh ...
Falwynn: If you have time after the tournament, um...
Falwynn: I have a message I was told to deliver to you.
Falwynn: It's from—
*Falwynn gets cut off from her conversation as a member of the medical team calls for her from a distance.*
Rose Medic: You there!
Rose Medic: Contestant Falwynn! The physician wants to see you immediately!
Falwynn: See you soon, <Character>.
Falwynn: I'll be rooting for you from the stands!
In the west bracket:
Guard: Good luck, <Character>.
Fangblade: It's just you and me now.
- Let's do this! - continues quest dialogue.
Guard: Looks like they're just finishing up...
Guard: Now THIS'll be interesting.
Upon selecting 'Let's do this!':
Announcer: Now then...it's the moment you've been waiting for!
Announcer: Who will emerge victorious?
Announcer: Will <Character>'s strength prevail?
Announcer: Or will the champion defend his title once more?
Announcer: We're about to find out...are you ready?
Fangblade: It's time I grind your bones into dust.

After you defeat Fangblade:
Fangblade: I can't...WON'T...accept this!
*Fangblade lifts his arms as he prepares to throw his axes at you, only to have five Rose Guards intervene and surround him.*
Rose Guard: No funny business!
Rose Guard: You're coming with us.
*The scene fades to black, then focuses on you while the Announcer gives results on the progress of the tournament.*
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen!
<Character> (thinking): I did it!
Announcer: After a furious battle, the undefeated Fangblade...has fallen!
Announcer: What a shocking turn of events!
<Character> (thinking): I won!
Announcer: And now! It's time...
Announcer: ...for the final event!
Falwynn: Um...didn't <Character> just defeat the champion?
Announcer: I only said that Fangblade was a "four-time" tournament champion earlier...
Announcer: ...but he's not the current one!
Falwynn: Wait... then—
Announcer: In fact, the previous champion isn't even here today!
Falwynn: Then... who?!
*Melchior falls to the ground after being defeated by a person in a white suit; the winning contender saunters off without even a scratch on him.*
Announcer: The both tournament finalists have been decided!
Announcer: The winner of the west bracket, the fabled <Class> hero who saved the day countless of times... <Character>!
Announcer: And the winner of the east bracket...
Announcer: A newcomer...clad in the strangest garb I've ever seen!
*The man in the white suit walks towards the center of the arena as the scene pans vertically.*
Announcer: The rookie contender... FAUST!
Faust: Well then...
Faust: ...shall we begin?
Battle! - begins battle with Faust.
Extreme Battle! - begins battle with Faust.
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
Run Away! - returns to Swordhaven (Book 3).
After you defeat Faust:
Faust: As much as I'd love to stay and chat...
*Rose Guards enter the arena; Faust looks towards them.*
Faust: It seems we'll have to finish this some other time.
*You stare in confusion as you don't understand what Faust means to say.*
Faust: You there.
Faust: The announcer.
Announcer: ... Yes?
Faust: I concede defeat.
*The spectators, as well as the Announcer, Falwynn, and King Alteon all reel in surprise at Faust conceding in defeat.*
??? (1): What's going on...?
??? (2): Is he serious...?
??? (3): I paid 500 gold for this?!
*Faust stops as you call out to him, but he ignores you and walks away from the arena.*
Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen! I'm...not sure how to say this...
Announcer: It appears as though the challenger has...
Announcer: ...well, conceded his shot at the title!
Announcer: Therefore...it seems we have a WINNER!!
Announcer: May I present to you... your new tournament champion...
*You turn to see who is calling your name; it happens to be the one and only King Alteon.*
King Alteon: By the Avatars... it really IS you!
<Character>: Your Majesty!
King Alteon: I've never seen such a battle before! Amazing—truly amazing!
King Alteon: We have much to talk about! Come, come!
*You start to follow King Alteon, but are blocked by the two Rose Guards who were with him.*
King Alteon: What is the meaning of this?
Rose Guard: For your safety, Lord Akanthus has insisted that you not follow through with meeting the tournament champion.
Rose Guard: It could pose... risks.
King Alteon: That's preposterous, I trust <Character> with my life—!!
<Character>: No. It's...okay.
King Alteon: Then how about this?
King Alteon: For winning the Tournament of Champions today, I, with the full royal authority of Swordhaven...
King Alteon: ...declare you, <Character>, to be a champion among champions. And with that authority, I extend to you an invitation to our royal ball in a few weeks time.
King Alteon: This is a royal decree. You don't have any problem with that, do you?
Rose Guard: No... Your Majesty.
King Alteon: Good.
King Alteon: It seems we must part ways once again.
King Alteon: But do not fret, <Character>. I look forward to seeing you at the gala.
King Alteon: Oh, and do try to wear something formal, will you?
*You turn around to speak to Falwynn after your conversation with King Alteon.*
<Character>: Falwynn! Are you okay?
Falwynn: I'm fine, don't worry about me!
Falwynn: Congratulations on winning the tournament!
<Character>: ... I think.
Falwynn: I'm not sure who that last contestant was...but...
Falwynn: Well, anyway, I'm here to give you that message!
Falwynn: Actually, I have TWO messages here for you.
<Character>: Oh? Then go ahead!
Falwynn: Okay, so...
Falwynn: The first letter is from "the Lion-hearted MageKnight."
<Character>: You mean Sir Le—
<Character>: Ack—I'm sorry!
Falwynn: I'm here to tell you that they've made an important discovery...and they'd like to meet with you as soon as you can.
<Character>: Hmm...all right.
<Character>: And the second letter?
Falwynn: The other one is from...
Falwynn: How do you... pronounce this?
Falwynn: "Ar-ticks von Kree-gerr"...?
<Character>: A LETTER FROM ARTIX??!
Falwynn: <Character>! Please keep it down!
<Character>: Y- You're right. My bad.
Falwynn: A- Anyways, it's postmarked from the Doomwood region...
Falwynn: "Greetings and salutations!" Wow, he sure writes fancy!
Falwynn: Hmm...it says here that he's sorry for not being able to greet you sooner. He'd also like you to visit him at his Paladin Order when you get the chance...
Falwynn: Hmm...it says here that he's sorry for not being able to assist you more. He'd also like you to visit him when you get the chance...
<Character>: Wait, really?!
<Character>: I wonder what for.
Falwynn: ...and he's included some coordinates! Wow, that sounds interesting!
Falwynn: ...and he's included some directions! Wow, that sounds interesting!
<Character>: That's... certainly mysterious.
Falwynn: And... well, that's about it!
Falwynn: I don't have the actual letters with me—so if you need some more insight, you'll have to talk to Mr. Dragonblade back in Falconreach.
Falwynn: And um... If you ever want to maybe train together, Mr. Dragonblade in Falconreach knows where to find me!
<Character>: Got it. Thanks, Falwynn!
Falwynn: I have to go now, but... I wish you luck on your journeys, <Character>.
*Falwynn bows at you with delight.*
Falwynn: I, uh... I hope we meet again!
*After speaking, Falwynn leaves.*
<Character> (thinking): Hmm... first the king, and now this...
<Character> (thinking): Why now, I wonder?
<Character> (thinking): And...
<Character> (thinking): Who exactly WAS that?
*Scene fades to black.*
