One Step Forward
???: Lady Jaania?
???: I bring news from General Akanthus.
Amadeus: The campaign against the Vind has run into some setbacks.
Amadeus: The ones who attacked the prison and broke out a number of high priority magical criminals, my lady.
Amadeus: General Akanthus suspects them to have had a hand in the Oculus Tower disaster.
Amadeus: On that matter, General Akanthus is requesting more funds and troops.
Amadeus: Very well, my lady.
Amadeus: And a final note–
Amadeus: There are reports that <Character> has been seen in the company of the Vind.
Amadeus: I take it you read Magus Hansa's report on the Sandsea incident?
Amadeus: Very well. I shall take my leave.
Tournament of Champions / Tournament of Champions (Easy)
???: My Lady. Am I interrupting?
Amadeus: I'm here with the monthly reports.
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.
Amadeus: <Character> then helped her defeat the emperor.
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.
Amadeus: There are a lot of new recruits coming in, more and more people are starting to believe in our cause.
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.
Amadeus: As for Falconreach...
Amadeus: An outpost has finally been assembled at the foot of Kaer Sierra and the mages have begun studying the Fissure.
Amadeus: Before or after the ball?
Amadeus: My apologies, I almost forgot. An unusual bird, carrying this letter, came in this morning.
Amadeus: A blue hawk.
Amadeus: Is everything alright, My Lady?
Amadeus: To whom, if I may ask?
Amadeus: Right away.
Amadeus: Pardon me?
Amadeus: As well as... I possibly can, My Lady.
Amadeus: I'm not like Neron.
Amadeus: My Lady.
The Mage Tower
Amadeus: For the last time, we were sent as reinforcements, by the decree of King Alteon.
Amadeus: We're here to help, whether this... oaf wants it or not.
Amadeus: ... getting really tired of your...
Amadeus: It's what you do, after all.
Amadeus: You solve everyone else's problems...
Friday the 13th Interlude
Amadeus: I'm pretty sure it's too late for that.
Amadeus: Treat them like you would any monster. They are just dead bodies, being used by Doom. Nothing more...
Amadeus: So stop getting emotional, get it together, and do your job.
Amadeus: I am... thankful... that you have destroyed that thing. Doom Weapons are...
Amadeus: ... a nuisance.
Amadeus: Just so we are clear—
Amadeus: I'm not doing this for you.
Amadeus: Completely... ugh... purified.
Amadeus: You will not mention this to anyone...
Amadeus: You owe me this...
Queen of Swordhaven
Amadeus: My Lady, when would you estimate your return?
Amadeus: Who will-
Amadeus: Very well.
Amadeus: Surveying the castle for damages and dealing with the remaining golems.
Amadeus: Yes, my Lady.
Amadeus: The King is absent and Princess Brittany, who's the next in line, is in no condition to rule over Swordhaven.
Amadeus: It's the law... my... Queen.
Amadeus: Will you be able to learn something from it?
Amadeus: Certainly. I will leave you to it, then.
Amadeus: Yes, Tessa?
Amadeus: At once.
Amadeus: You've called for me...?
Amadeus: From what I've gathered, they don't want Jaania to interfere with something.
Amadeus: I cannot disclose this information.
Amadeus: Jaania has left to investigate the Fissure, a very old phenomenon south of Kaer Sierra.
Amadeus: At first she believed it to be a giant geyser of raw mana. But as of yesterday, she's not so sure anymore.
Amadeus: This is why she has been so openly attacked by these people from Azaveyr.
Amadeus: From the way you asked... you know of them, correct?
Amadeus: As you wish...
The Queen of Roses
Amadeus: General Akanthus.
Amadeus: Lady Jaania has returned from her voyage and asked me to deliver these reports to you.
Amadeus: She expects you to familiarize yourself with them and report to her post haste.
Amadeus: I didn't, obviously. These documents were sealed.
Out of Control
Amadeus: No. I refuse.
Amadeus: Do you know what this is, Akanthus?
Amadeus: And if I tell her that her trusted general is working behind her back—
Amadeus: This artifact is Evil, Akanthus.
Amadeus: ...It shall be done.
The Spells We Weave
Amadeus: What is that idiot thinking, having me work on this in the lab here, in the city?
Amadeus: If I were to make a single mistake, all of Swordhaven would no longer have to worry about that Tytan's siege.
Amadeus: I don't plan to.
Amadeus: I must warn you against using this to destroy the Tytan.
Amadeus: If I've modified this to your specifications...
Amadeus: ...the destruction and ensuing magical fallout would likely destroy Swordhaven as well, if not more.
Amadeus: Unless you're not–
