Princess Victoria: Hello!
Princess Victoria: Er, yes. Thank you. It is very nice to meet you, <Character>. For the first time. Ever.
Princess Victoria: The moneyless villagers! That is to say, the poorer townspeople.
Princess Victoria: ......
Princess Victoria: Father, I just... I-
Princess Victoria: *gulp*
Princess Victoria: Yes, yes it does. It definitely does. Uh, that's been my motivation this whole time! Helping the people!
Princess Victoria: But...!
Princess Victoria: <Character>, you can stop. Helping. Now.
Princess Victoria: Quite sure.
???: Hi, <Character>.
Princess Victoria: Keep your voice down!
Princess Victoria: How are you?
Princess Victoria: I'm not sure I follow?
Princess Victoria: Huh?
Princess Victoria: But we have-
Princess Victoria: -obviously never seen each other since you were thawed, that's completely right and correct!
Princess Victoria: Silly me! Ohohohoho...
Princess Victoria: I have been...around. The castle, that is. That's why you haven't seen me!
Princess Victoria: I've been...attending to my royal duties...and...stuff.
Princess Victoria: Likewise!
Princess Victoria: Oh, Tara is off to seal a deal with an eastern country. She's become quite the entrepreneur.
Princess Victoria: Brittany is...sick.
Princess Victoria: I think it's going to be fine. Jaania's magi are helping...
Princess Victoria: Jaania is convincing.
Princess Victoria: I can see it. She's preying on him. On our misfortune. I bring it up every now and then, but he refuses to listen.
Princess Victoria: <Character>, our mother died...because of magic. And our little-
Princess Victoria: I don't know how she knew it, but I know that she's using it very well.
Princess Victoria: My father may appear strong, but he's hurting. Even after ALL these years.
Princess Victoria: When Jaania first came to my father, he was hopeful, but skeptic. After all... she IS good at what she is doing, and people saw it.
Princess Victoria: But then she showed him something, and...it tipped the scales. His outlook on Jaania changed.
Princess Victoria: He still is wary of the Rose, mind you...but not of Jaania.
Princess Victoria: I don't know what she showed him, but must have been significant. It changed his perspective. Maybe even...healed him, but still...
Princess Victoria: You will have an opportunity to speak with him. If he won't listen to his own daughter...maybe he'll listen to you.
Princess Victoria: Thank you, <Character>. I will... see you soon.
Princess Victoria: Oh, nevermind! Go on, have fun!
Are Rocks Evil?
Princess Victoria: I can see more of them around the corner, father.
Princess Victoria: <Character>?
Princess Victoria: The guards are down as well...
Princess Victoria: Is this an attack? On our kingdom?
Princess Victoria: *thinking* What did Jaania do...
Princess Victoria: No, father! We have to evacuate, your life is what's important here!
Princess Victoria: What about Brittany?
Princess Victoria: How can you be sure?
Princess Victoria: I will help-
Princess Victoria: What?! Are you serious?!
Princess Victoria: No!
Princess Victoria: Just no!
Princess Victoria: You will not tell me what I can or can't do.
Princess Victoria: I am tired of you treating me like this!
Princess Victoria: Every time I came back from "delegations", I had to hide bruises from you because I knew you would not approve of what I'm doing!
Princess Victoria: But this ends now!
Princess Victoria: I am not made from porcelain!
Princess Victoria: I can take care of myself and others!
Princess Victoria: And I'm certainly NOT interested in "attracting a Prince,-"
Princess Victoria: "-when I'm gallivanting around the countryside engaged in such unsuitable activities", Father!
Princess Victoria: Yes, I still remember this!
Princess Victoria: I am going to take up my bow, rip up my dress and defend YOU, because I am more than just a princess!
Princess Victoria: I am your daughter!
Princess Victoria: And I am going to help you get out of here, whether you like it or not!
Princess Victoria: Because that's who I am!
Princess Victoria: Let's go.
Princess Victoria: Fine, I don't care, let's GO!
Princess Victoria: But didn't it seem like they only came for Jaania?
Princess Victoria: ...
Princess Victoria: Fair point.
Queen of Swordhaven
Princess Victoria: Why have you announced to the people that my father has been kidnapped?! You had no right-
Princess Victoria: He wasn't kidnapped!!
Princess Victoria: Then your sources are wrong!!
Princess Victoria: I was.... I...
Princess Victoria: I was there when it happened!
Princess Victoria: <Character>...
Princess Victoria: My father has been injured! By these things! That YOU lead into the castle!! <Character> has taken him... has...
Princess Victoria: I... I couldn-
Princess Victoria: I don't know.
Princess Victoria: That woma-I...
Princess Victoria: The point is, my father was not kidnapped. He was taken... to... someone who will... help him!
Princess Victoria: I trust <Character>!
Princess Victoria: Are you... leaving?
Princess Victoria: To where?
Princess Victoria: You mean attack you...
Princess Victoria: ...
Princess Victoria: P-pardon?
Out of Control
Victoria: I am aware of the increased monster activity in the areas around your farm, but I just—
Victoria: I'm so sorry, I just can't send my guards there at the moment.
Victoria: You could post about your problem on the city board, perhaps some kind soul can help you...
Victoria: I could request some Rose recruits help you with your issue.
Victoria: Dad... how did you manage all of this?
Victoria: Please send in the next audience.
Victoria: Lady Jaania.
Victoria: May I... help you with something?
Victoria: What a shame.
Victoria: If you tell me about the incident, I will see if the renovations can progress faster.
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania!
Queen Victoria: I order you to tell me what happened in your tower that day, causing damage to the infrastructure and the populace of Swordhaven...
Queen Victoria: ...or else you will be thrown into the dungeon!
Queen Victoria: And believe me, it is much more uncomfortable than your current temporary quarters.
Queen Victoria: G—good. Thank you.
Queen Victoria: I will see what I can do about your old quarters.
Queen Victoria: Hold.
Queen Victoria: There is another matter which I must discuss with you.
Queen Victoria: We have welcomed the refugees of Duat into Swordhaven, and while we have the resources to support them for now...
Queen Victoria: It has come to my attention that the Magesterium attack was stopped not because of the Rose...
Queen Victoria: ...but despite your refusal to send troops or investigate personally.
Queen Victoria: I am sure I do not need to remind you, but the safe harbor of Swordhaven was provided under a condition.
Queen Victoria: The condition that the Rose protect the citizens of Greenguard.
Queen Victoria: I understand that most of your forces have been tasked with moving south, outside of the kingdom.
Queen Victoria: As per my father's decree, I cannot allow this.
Queen Victoria: The Rose's first priority must be to deal with any immediate threats to the Kingdom of Greenguard!
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania, should you refuse to—
Queen Victoria: What is it?
Queen Victoria: Proceed.
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania, if you do not recall your forces to assist in the defense of the Kingdom...
Queen Victoria: ...I'm afraid I will have no choice but to terminate your base of operations here in Swordhaven.
Queen Victoria: Do you refuse?
The Golden Hand
Queen Victoria: Thank you for answering my summons, Lady Kara, <Character>.
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania says that you are the leader of the Vind, Lady Kara. It is a pleasure to meet you.
Queen Victoria: Wonderful. Now, down to business.
Queen Victoria: Given the current situation with the Magesterium's assault on the Kingdom...
Queen Victoria: ...I would hope to negotiate a truce between the forces of the Rose and the Vind.
Queen Victoria: No, not a truce.
Queen Victoria: A temporary alliance.
Queen Victoria: An alliance, unifying the people of Greenguard against this threat. We cannot afford to be divided during this time of peril.
Queen Victoria: Can't you just... agree not to fight each other for the greater good?
Queen Victoria: Lady Kara, is this true? Are you holding my father against his will?
Queen Victoria: And <Character>, can you corroborate this information?
Queen Victoria: The king— My father— he was well when he left?
Queen Victoria: I see. Lady Jaania—
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania! I trust <Character>, and since s/he can vouch for Lady Kara, I believe her.
Queen Victoria: Do you mistrust the judgment of your Queen?
Queen Victoria: Then as the leaders of the Rose and the Vind— you who have gathered so many followers—
Queen Victoria: You must inspire your people to put aside their differences in the face of the end of the world.
Queen Victoria (thinking): Politics is easy!
Queen Victoria: Lady Kara, please forgive Lady Jaania for this. She believes she may be able to close all of the rifts. As such, her time is quite valuable.
Queen Victoria: That brings us to you, <Character>. How are you doing?
Queen Victoria: While I have full confidence in Lady Jaania's abilities, you're quite resourceful.
Queen Victoria: I would like you to search for any alternate methods of closing the rifts.
Queen Victoria: Your plan is still just that. A plan. I will not gamble with the lives of my subjects.
Queen Victoria: Good. Is this agreeable to you, <Character>?
Queen Victoria: Glad to hear it!
Queen Victoria: Now, I'm sure you all have a lot of business to attend to, but we must first set up some preliminary logistics, send messages—
Queen Victoria: What is the—
Queen Victoria: Identify yourselves, intruders, before I toss you into the dungeons!
Queen Victoria: What is the meaning of this?
Queen Victoria: Excuse me. You're from the Magesterium...
Queen Victoria: ...who attacked my father, have declared war on Greenguard with your most recent assault, and you're here to negotiate?
Queen Victoria: And you can close them?
Queen Victoria: You make a fair point, Jaania. How can we trust you, Golden Hand of the Shapeless Empire?
Queen Victoria: You claim that your attack on my father was an accident—
Queen Victoria: And of my father? You've apologized, but explain yourselves! Why did your golems attack us?
Queen Victoria: I am.
Queen Victoria: We can discuss reparations later.
Queen Victoria: So what is it that you want, exactly, Vseslava, Ostromir?
Queen Victoria: And what is the nature of these adjustments?
Queen Victoria: Why do you require our cooperation for this?
Queen Victoria: Couldn't you just teleport where you needed to go?
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania, Lady Kara, <Character>, what are your thoughts?
Queen Victoria: But why attack the Kingdom? If Jaania is intruding on Magesterium ground, can you not defend against the Rose there?
Queen Victoria: It does, but I must disagree with your methods wholeheartedly.
Queen Victoria: The Magesterium has caused great harm and damage to the Kingdom of Greenguard and its people.
Queen Victoria: However, if the situation is as dire as not only you, Vseslava, and Ostromir, have told me, but Lady Kara and <Character>, as well as our own scouts...
Queen Victoria: ...then I see no other choice.
Queen Victoria: Vseslava, Ostromir, of the Golden Hand of the Shapeless Empire, I grant you free passage.
Queen Victoria: Passage only, though. Should you break our laws or be found doing anything untoward or suspicious, you will be executed.
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania, you are free to continue your research, provided that you manage your troops and keep away from the Fissure.
Queen Victoria: We must protect the people of Greenguard, no, all of Lore, first. Then we can resume our petty political squabbles.
Queen Victoria: The Rose and the Vind will work together to protect the people of the Kingdom while the Golden Hand does its work.
Queen Victoria: At no point will interference or subterfuge be tolerated. Is that clear?
Queen Victoria: I leave that up to you, <Character>. You may assist the Rose or the Vind in their endeavors, or, should you choose to...
Queen Victoria: ...you may aid in escorting the Golden Hand.
Queen Victoria (thinking): I'm doing it, father! Wherever you are, I hope you're proud.
Queen Victoria: It's... a relief to see you, <Character>. With the Magesterium rifts threatening all of Lore, your presence gives us hope.
- The Greenguard Alliance - teleports you to The Greenguard Alliance, where you must either select or support your chosen faction.
If you haven't selected a faction:
Queen Victoria: The Rose, Vind, and Golden Hand are preparing for the conflict ahead. I leave it to you to decide which group to support.
Queen Victoria: I will trust your judgement in this. You're our hero, after all!
If you have selected a faction:
Queen Victoria: Sometimes, I wonder if I'm doing the right thing. Is it wise to trust the Golden Hand? What if the Vind has ulterior motives?
Queen Victoria: And is Jaania really working on something that could save us all?
Queen Victoria: But then I must remember that I am Queen. I must be decisive, and my decisions absolute.
Queen Victoria: All the same, when one is locked up on this throne, with the crown as my chains, it can be...
Queen Victoria: ...easy to forget the sacrifices that are being made out on the battlefield.
Queen Victoria (whispering): I don't suppose you could sneak in a bow for me? Maybe I could find a window to shoot from...
Queen Victoria: Ahem. I mean, Thank you, <Character>, loyal subject, for coming to give your respects. Keep up the good work!
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
Queen Victoria: Thank you for your concern, but as Queen, I may go where I wish.
Queen Victoria: As of now, I'm issuing orders!
Queen Victoria: The Vind has already sent DragonRider scouts to gain information on this monster.
Queen Victoria: I've also gotten word that The Golden Hand have begun their process of bringing the rift under control.
Queen Victoria: I'm calling for a meeting between the Vind and the Rose to best discuss how to tackle this new development.
Queen Victoria: I'd like you to be present as well, <Character>.
Queen Victoria: They will have to be. As will the Vind fighters.
Queen Victoria: I'll see if we can bring out and repurpose some of the city's old defenses as well.
Into the Light
Queen Victoria: And that's the city's defense situation at present. We've called off the attack to prevent any collateral damage.
Queen Victoria: What of the Vind's efforts against the Tytan?
Queen Victoria: And what of the Rose?
Queen Victoria: The city is under attack, Lady Jaania. Do you have a means of protecting the city?
Queen Victoria: I understand that your research is important.
Queen Victoria: But it cannot come at the cost of Swordhaven and its people!
Queen Victoria: Good.
Queen Victoria: Vseslava, how is the closure of the rift progressing?
Queen Victoria: Is this going to be a problem?
Queen Victoria: What can we do to help?
Queen Victoria: I understand. That brings us to the next topic.
Queen Victoria: How are we going to stop this... Tytan?
Queen Victoria: Our weapons are ineffective... the dragons cannot stay in the air for prolonged assault... and the city's defense is faltering.
Queen Victoria: As seems to be the theme of this Alliance, I believe we must work together!
Queen Victoria: We'll need to use some Rose mages to enhance our remaining siege weaponry, and the Dragonriders of the Vind will be required as well.
Queen Victoria: We'll launch one massive assault, all together!
Queen Victoria: And at that moment, <Character> and <Dragon> may be able to reach the Tytan...
Queen Victoria: ... to either slay it or push it back through the rift!
Queen Victoria: Yes?
Queen Victoria: Apologies if you misunderstood, <Character>. We will of course do our research and create a plan of action!
Queen Victoria: You will not be sent to blindly face the Tytan.
Queen Victoria: But we may not be prepared for every eventuality.
Queen Victoria: Your resourcefulness and resilience is why I've chosen you to face it head on.
Queen Victoria: Hmm.
Queen Victoria: Wonderful. Thank you, Lady Jaania.
Queen Victoria: It's good to see everyone getting along!
Queen Victoria: Now, if there's nothing else—
Queen Victoria: What was that?!
Queen Victoria: To arms!
Queen Victoria: Stupid dress, always getting in the way!
Queen Victoria: Jaania, about that defensive measure?
Queen Victoria: The city cannot withstand this! If you have any way of defending it, NOW is the time!
Queen Victoria: Do it!
Queen Victoria: Not now, you two!
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania, can you walk while preparing the spell? We can't stay up here!
Queen Victoria: Good. We'll head deeper into the castle as you prepare.
Queen Victoria: Melissa, watch our backs, and <Character>, take the front.
Queen Victoria: I'll stay by Lady Jaania.
Queen Victoria: Swordhaven will not fall under my watch!
Queen Victoria: We should be able to stop here for a moment without worrying about the ceiling falling in on us. Is the spell prepared?
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania?
Queen Victoria: It's done then?
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania, are you alright?
Queen Victoria: Lady Jaania, you did your duty as commanded by the Queen of Swordhaven.
Queen Victoria: You saved the city!
Queen Victoria: If there are to be any consequences–
Queen Victoria: I see.
Queen Victoria: Lady Melissa, can you do me a favor, please?
Queen Victoria: Please escort Lady Jaania safely to her tower, and notify her bodyguards of what has transpired.
Queen Victoria: I believe they will be better equipped to take care of her in her current state than we are.
Queen Victoria: Look at all this, <Character>.
Queen Victoria: What a mess.
Queen Victoria: I'm not.
Queen Victoria: I'm running on the feeling in the back of my head that says I am responsible for everyone here.
Queen Victoria: Everyone is under my care. And all I can do is what I think best.
Queen Victoria: Nobody questions me. Nobody says, "Hey, Queen lady, that's a bad idea!".
Queen Victoria: Not for the big stuff, at least.
Queen Victoria: Sometimes...
Queen Victoria: No, a lot of the time, I wish I could be back in the forest, helping out the animals. But...
Queen Victoria: Those days could never last, could they?
Queen Victoria: Thanks for listening, <Character>.
Queen Victoria: I must check on Brittany. Make sure she's safe.
Queen Victoria: I'll send word to Tara... Let her know that Swordhaven is unsafe to return to.
Queen Victoria: Oh, and follow up with Lady Jaania.
Queen Victoria: Then I have to re-organize the assault on the Tytan, see what resources we've lost...
Queen Victoria: <Character>, please do your best to continue helping the people of Swordhaven. I will send a summons for you when we are ready.
Queen Victoria: How does s/he keep going, I wonder?
The Spells We Weave
Queen Victoria: So, what's this plan you've come up with?
Queen Victoria: Then instead of fighting back, it will retreat through the rift!
Queen Victoria: ...I can see a lot of things going wrong with this plan.
Queen Victoria: What if this just makes it angrier?
Queen Victoria: What if it flees further away from the rift rather than back into it?
Queen Victoria: Can it... even fly backwards?
Queen Victoria: <Character>, I'm... I'm not sure that it's that simple...
Queen Victoria: I see! And with the ballistae that hit it then fell, there's sure to be some Tytan bits out on the battlefield!
Queen Victoria: How are you faring, Golden Hand?
Queen Victoria: Wonderful. This plan still seems... optimistic though. If the Tytan doesn't retreat, or it redoubles its attack...
Queen Victoria: We must trust that Jaania's barrier will hold, should even the worst occur.
Queen Victoria: It is decided. We have incomplete information, and we cannot predict the future, but with what we have, this is our best course of action.
Queen Victoria: We proceed with this plan.
Queen Victoria: However, we must not let our guards down. We will continue planning for even the unexpected.
Queen Victoria: <Character>, it's up to you to find some remains of the Tytan.
