*In the Swordhaven Castle throne room, Queen Victoria is having an audience with Jaania.*

Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania, I take it that you have recovered from your... exertion during the Tytan attack?
Queen Victoria: Swordhaven owes you a great debt. Should you require any aid, it shall be yours.
Jaania: I am well, thank you, My Queen.

Jaania: I apologize for my moment of weakness.
Jaania: But you summoned me for a reason, did you not?
Queen Victoria: Yes. Unfortunately, without your ministrations, Princess Brittany's health has been... declining.
Queen Victoria: While I understand that you're eager to assist in the rift problem, may I ask that you remain here, in Swordhaven?
Jaania: I...
Jaania: It would be my honor. However, may I ask for more funding toward research projects of The Rose?

*Circe, who has been standing by, glares at Jaania after her request.*

Queen Victoria: May I ask what exactly this research is for?
Jaania: As I am sure you are no doubt aware, I recently spoke to Kara, of the Vind.
Jaania: She opened my eyes to new possibilities- possibilities that I should like to pursue, if you would allow me.
Queen Victoria: Did she, now...
Queen Victoria: I would ask that you give me some time to deliberate on this.
Jaania: I understand.
Jaania: By your leave, I shall tend to Princess Brittany before returning to the Ivory Tower.
Victoria: Yes... that would be... for the best.

*Jaania's footsteps can be heard as she leaves; Victoria looks understandably troubled, and slightly confused.*

Queen Victoria: That went oddly well.

Queen Victoria: Hmm...
Circe: My Queen, would you have me investigate... personally?
Queen Victoria: I would appreciate it, Circe.
Queen Victoria: I must know what Lady Jaania and The Rose are planning.

*Scene fades to black; meanwhile, at the Doomwood Ruins, the storm appears to be worsening.*

<Character>: That one... was closer.
<Character>: No sign of any trouble yet though.
Eulin Verriton IV: Greetings, <Character>!

Eulin Verriton IV: How goes the watch?
<Character>: Huh?
<Character>: Oh, hi, Prince Eulin. Nothing significant to report.
<Character>: The storm seems to be slowly getting closer, though.
Eulin Verriton IV: Hmm. A few measly stray bolts of lightning is hardly a storm!
Eulin Verriton IV: Why, back in the Manufactory, the rolls of thunder herald the hammers of the forges!
Eulin Verriton IV: Now that is a true storm! The heartbeat of the city, harnessed and rhythmic!
Eulin Verriton IV: The ticking of infinite gears... and the whirs of machinery...
<Character>: You must really miss your home.
Eulin Verriton IV: I... I can't let down my subjects. They trust me. Believe in me. Depend on me.
Eulin Verriton IV: It is my responsibility. My burden to bear, for none else can, or will.
<Character>: Is there really that much pressure on you?
Eulin Verriton IV: Oh yes. The Manufactory demands much, and in return, the Lagohm and other denizens prosper.
Eulin Verriton IV: Only the best could ever hope to pull the right strings, turn the right cogs, and keep the Manufactory from crashing into a grinding halt.
Eulin Verriton IV: And I... I am the best!
<Character>: You're certainly very proud of yourself.
Eulin Verriton IV: As I should be! And as I endeavor to stay!
<Character>: Not many would rise up like–

*With an enormous crash of thunder, you turn away from Prince Eulin toward the source of the noise.*

Alliance Guard: Wake up! Wake up! We're under attack! To arms!
<Character>: No time to waste. Eulin, stay close!
<Character>: Eulin?

*You look around, but Prince Eulin is nowhere to be found.*

<Character>: Where did he...
<Character>: The camps have to take priority. I hope Eulin can stay out of trouble...

*After you run away toward the camps, Prince Eulin comes out of hiding from behind a post, appearing frightened.*

Eulin Verriton IV: ...

*Scene fades to black; you must secure the camps by defeating the 10 attacking sets of monsters; once defeated, you regroup with the other Royal Resistance members, only to find something is wrong...*

<Character>: Is everyone safe? What happened?
G. M. Hansa: Seems like they surrounded us in the night. Is everyone... wait–
Thursday: Has... has anyone seen Raven? We got separated in the battle... I've looked everywhere but I can't find any sign of her!
Vseslava: ...

Vseslava: Ostromir is missing as well.
Kara SuLema: Mritha. Time is of the essence.
Mritha: Understood. I'll begin the search with Odgne at once.
G. M. Hansa: And where is our guest, Prince Eulin?

*You turn to face Grand Magus Hansa.*

<Character>: I... I was talking to him right before the attack...
<Character>: Has no one seen him since?
Kara SuLema: Grand Magus Hansa, Vseslava, <Character>. We must act fast.
G. M. Hansa: Agreed. Thursday, head back to camp and start organizing a search party.
Thursday: At once, Grand Magus.
Vseslava: I will retreat to my shelter and order the knights to help with the search.
Kara SuLema: Good. If our missing allies were captured, then they couldn't have gone too far yet.

Kara SuLema: Let's go.

*After everyone else has left, you take a moment to process what has just happened, before calling on your dragon to move onward.*

<Character>: Alright then. Come on, <Dragon>.

*Your dragon does not respond; it is at this moment you realise your dragon has also gone missing.*

<Character>: <Dragon>?
<Character>: Oh no...

*Scene cuts to black; elsewhere, Warlic appears to be meditating in a forest with Jimmy the Blue Flying Eye, when a familiar voice approaches them.*

Lynn: This way, papa! Slow down, Flappy!
Sepulchure: A moment, Lynn. I believe...

Sepulchure: We have reached our destination.
Lynn: Huh? But... we're still in the middle of the forest.

Lynn: Oh!

*Sepulchure and Lynn stand before Warlic and Jimmy the Blue Flying Eye.*

Lynn: Hello! Are you friends with Flappy too?

*Jimmy the Blue Flying Eye glares at Lynn.*

Warlic: Greetings, young one. This eyeball who you have named "Flappy" is indeed one of my friends.
Warlic: As for you...
Sepulchure: Blue mage.

Sepulchure: You've been spying on me.

Sepulchure: Why?
Warlic: I had my suspicions, but it's true, then.
Warlic: Amadeus.

Warlic: Sepulchure.
Warlic: ...Valen.
Sepulchure: ...
Sepulchure: You will call me Amadeus.
Warlic: Amadeus it is, then. Come, come. You two must be tired.
Warlic: And your... injury. We'll have to treat it.
Lynn: You can help papa?
Warlic: I certainly can. And what should I call you...?

*Lynn looks away, unsure if she should trust Warlic; Sepulchure nods, encouraging her.*

Lynn: I'm Lynn!
Warlic: It's a pleasure to meet you, Lynn. I am Warlic.
Warlic: Now, if the two of you will follow me, the entrance to my tower is just this way.
Sepulchure: Lynn, stay by my side, and touch nothing.

*Scene fades to black.*
