Location: Travel Map » Chessmaster Saga » 16. An Unexpected Development
You and Karuna step out into the port town of Lolosia, having just ventured to Deren.
«You can skip the cutscene at any time.»
Karuna: Well not that it hasn’t been fun, but I think I’ll go it alone from here. I don’t really feel like having another adventure behind bars right now.
«A nombus flies by in the background.»
«You»: You just are not going to let that go, are you?
Karuna: Oh, you have no idea.
Kamui: (offscreen) Uh, You? There’s been a small, somewhat urgent development.
«You»: A what now?
«You»: It’s Kamui. He’s talking through that ear communicator thing.
Kamui: (offscreen) Who’re you talking to?
«You»: Karuna. We just got off the ship from Deren.
Kamui: (offscreen) Oh! Put me on speaker! It’s the little button at the top of the ear!
Kamui: (offscreen) Karuna! I didn’t expect to reach you, but since you’re there, I’ve got some paperwork I’d like to go over with you to establish testing arrangements for –
«You»: Kamui? That “somewhat urgent” thing you were talking about?
Kamui: (offscreen) Huh? Oh right. Uh, how to put this… yeah, let’s go with the direct method.
Kamui: (offscreen) You know those Numbered Beasts? One’s about to attack Deren. And it’s absolutely not my fault!
«A nombus flies by at the background.»
Kamui: (offscreen) I know! It’s the first time my databases have ever been hacked!
Kamui: (offscreen) I don’t know what that monster found in them, but it got very angry, very fast, and started making a beeline for the island with it’s personal army in tow!
«You»: *Sigh and I just got here too. Karuna?
Karuna: Oh, no no no. I’m sure you can handle it, hero. I have to make sure that the kids haven’t gotten themselves into trouble since I left. Good luck.
«Karuna leaves the scene.»
«You»: …Alright, guess it’s back to Deren for me then.
«Scene changes to somewhere in Deren.»
Altered Beast: Yes…orbs here.
Altered Beast: So much effort, all for naught. Can’t let them win. Too much at stake.
Altered Beast: Obliterate them.
An Unexpected Development
With the beast and its minions bearing down on Deren and the recovered Orbs in the Temple of Hope, the question remains: Why do they want them?

Optional Full Heal after battles #2, #4
Altered Beast: Fool, fool, fool! Why act as an obstacle? Action is necessary! Plan can’t succeed without the orbs!
«You»: Well you’re awfully talkative. Your friends didn’t start explaining until they were cornered.
Altered Beast: Doesn’t make sense. Why oppose? Profile matches hero. Hero is supposed to help. Instead hinder. Hero is acting as villain.
«You»: I’m right here you know.
Altered Beast: In the way. Course is clear. Must go through. Apologies, no choice. Profile indicates you helped many; hate to kill you.
«You»: Well…thanks. But don’t worry, you won’t.
1 BATTLE: Mordin
«You»: Alright, beasty. I think it’s time I got some answers.
Altered Beast: Answers? Hero «You» doesn’t know? Would explain opposition. Obvious in retrospect, doesn’t have data.
«You»: Just what are you beasts planning to do with the orbs? And don’t leave it at "change the world" this time. I already know that.
Altered Beast: Change world? PAH! Technically accurate, I suppose, but only technically. "Cleanse" better reflects views on plans.
«You»: Ok, smart guy, how do you plan to CLEANSE the world then?
Altered Beast: "You"…cleanse?
Altered Beast: NO NO NO! NOT ALIGNED WITH THEM! Oppose them! Do not agree with knock-offs and their mistress! Plan will result in erasure of work!
Altered Beast: Invalidate it! Not desirable outcome! Want to stop plan!
Altered Beast: Want to STOP plan! Multi-element resonance bad at best of times. Island proves that. Enhanced cascade resonance even worse!
Altered Beast: Resonance fed by ten orbs worse still! Recognize danger it poses to preserving legacy of dead master. No reason to support!
«You»: Ok, we clearly got off on the wrong foot here. What exactly do you know that I don’t?
Altered Beast: Know many things! Happy to explain! Clearly need help to stop her.
«You»: Great! Let’s start with-
«Scene changes to a cave. A yellow eyed creature hidden in the dark talks to a nimbus.»
???: There we go. Pop always was good about those "off" switches.
«Scene changes back to You and the Altered Beast. The Altered Beast appears to have died.»
«You»: Zard spit!
«Scene fades momentarily and a treasure chest appears. Robina enters the scene.»
Robina: That was… disturbing. But still, we won! Let’s see what loot they left behind…
«When you click on the treasure chest, you can either choose to "Get War Reward!" or "Skip Reward / Already Have It". The former option opens the An Unexpected Development shop. After you exit the shop:»
