*Upon entering a dimly lit hallway of the lower level of Swordhaven Castle, while you help King Alteon and Princess Victoria escape, Victoria peeks from a corner and observes a gold and silver inhuman knight—a part of the Magesterium's invasive force.*

Princess Victoria: I can see more of them around the corner, father.
King Alteon: This is preposterous! How are there so many of them in MY castle?! Who are they!?
Princess Victoria: <Character>?
<Character>: Ugh, give me a minute, I am almost done here.

*King Alteon looks at you while you change out of your Gala outfit off-screen and arm yourself; Victoria take another peek from the corner to observe the escalation of the Magesterium's attack.*

Princess Victoria: The guards are down as well...
Princess Victoria: Is this an attack? On our kingdom?

*Victoria ponders the motive of the Magesterium's attack and how it is related to Jaania.*

Princess Victoria (thinking): What did Jaania do...
King Alteon: I abandoned the guests and ran... I have to go back and make sure—
Princess Victoria: No, father! We have to evacuate, your life is what's important here!
<Character>: Phew, alright, I am done!
<Character>: Taking off that formalwear over my <Class> attire was harder than I expected...
<Character>: And I thought soulwoven outfits were supposed to be manageable...

<Character>: Danyel and I need to have a little chat!!
<Character>: Your Majesty, Princess, we are good to go.
King Alteon: I can hear screaming...
<Character>: We have to leave it to Jaania, my Liege. My prerogative is to get you to safety.
Princess Victoria: What about Brittany?
King Alteon: It won't be necessary, she is safe.
Princess Victoria: How can you be sure?
King Alteon: Her room is sealed by magic that only Jaania and I can open. It was my precaution.

*You peek from the corner yourself as you begin to worry about their current situation.*

<Character>: There are a lot of them ahead...
King Alteon: Who are they? Who is so foolish as to attack the castle?!
<Character>: I don't know, your Highness. All I know right now is that this might be Jaania's doing.
King Alteon: ...
<Character>: Nevertheless... she's keeping the main threat at bay, so that we can escape.
<Character>: Please stay close and leave these armored adversaries to me.
Princess Victoria: I will help—
Princess Victoria: What?! Are you serious?!
King Alteon: I am dead serious! Princesses such as you should not—
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!

*Alteon silently looks at Victoria, guilt-ridden for hurting his middle daughter without realizing that she can take care things by herself.*

<Character> (thinking): Awkwaaaard...
King Alteon: You... have a bow with you...?
Princess Victoria: Let's go.
King Alteon: We will continue this conversation later...
Princess Victoria: Fine, I don't care, let's GO!

  • Robina joins you as Guest A.

    *You and Victoria fight various Magisterium golems throughout the hallways, while King Alteon trails behind; meanwhile, back at the upper level of the castle where the Gala was held, Jaania and Zlatomira are locked in a magical stalemate where their two attacks collide with both of them try to overwhelm the other, with no avail; Dezyderiush can be seen dead and frozen by Jaania's ice spell.*

    Jaania: You have some nerve, attacking a palace during a peaceful royal celebration...
    Jaania: Do you comprehend what you may have started?
    Zlatomira: Whatever it takes!

    Zlatomira: You cannot interfere with the Fissure!
    Jaania: You realize that now I want to do it even more, don't you?
    Zlatomira: ...
    Jaania: What is it that you so desperately protect? That you are ready to start a war for?
    Jaania: The Fissure is simply a geyser of raw mana... it's not even on your territory.
    Jaania: You're trespassing.
    Zlatomira: It's not yours, either!
    Zlatomira: It is so much... more... ugh!
    Jaania: What? You didn't realize the extent of my power?
    Jaania: Your... colleague, or whoever he was, underestimated me, and look what he has brought on himself.
    Jaania: You will end up like this too.
    Jaania: Therefore, before it happens, explain to me everything you know.
    Jaania: I'd hate for your knowledge to go to waste, you see.
    Zlatomira: We will stop you!
    Jaania: I see...

    *Back at the dimly lit hallway, you, Victoria, and Alteon briefly stop at an area where the windows behind them provides more light.*

    <Character>: Are they in every corner of this castle? This was definitely planned.
    Princess Victoria: But didn't it seem like they only came for Jaania?
    <Character>: They could have known of her and taken precautions...
    <Character>: I don't know. I'm just making assumptions based on available information.
    Princess Victoria: ...
    Princess Victoria: Fair point.
    King Alteon: *pant* Can we... rest for a bit... ?
    King Alteon: *pant* I'm not... made for running... *pant*... any more...
    King Alteon: I'm too old for this... *pant*
    <Character>: Very well, Your Grace, but only for a couple of minutes.

    *You take this moment to rest as an opportunity to finally enlighten King Alteon about the Rose's wrongdoings as it was the sole reason you entered the Tournament of Champions in the first place.*

    <Character>: Well, this is as good time as ever.
    <Character>: Your Majesty, I want to have a word with you.
    King Alteon: Oh, are you going to yell at me too?

    *Victoria eyes angrily at King Alteon.*

    <Character>: Umm... no.
    <Character>: Your Highness... I would like you to consider what Jaania is doing.
    King Alteon: Which is?
    <Character>: The Rose... they are not good people.
    <Character>: Well, some of them are, but...
    <Character>: No, that's beside the point.
    <Character>: The Rose is doing awful things to magical creatures all over your Kingdom.
    King Alteon: I know.

    *There was a brief silence before you are shocked to hear that King Alteon knows the Rose's wrongdoings all along.*

    <Character>: You...
    <Character>: You know?!
    King Alteon: Do you think Jaania is keeping me in the dark?
    King Alteon: I know that the Rose is taking in terrible beasts to the Beastmaster so that he can cure them.
    King Alteon: I also know that the Rose is pursuing mages who are using magic for evil acts and then take them up for rehabilitation.
    <Character>: That's... not true. Not at all!
    <Character>: The Rose is hunting innocent creatures JUST because they are magical!
    <Character>: For example, up until recently, I did not know that the Clawkin had their own culture and civilization. Or Dravir. Or many other species!
    <Character>: They are being taken away, from their families and loved ones, because they are magical, and magic equals bad in the Rose's eyes!!!
    King Alteon: ...

    *Victoria looks at you and nods her head continuously with a reassuring smile on her face.*

    King Alteon: Magic is evil...
    <Character>: NOT ALL MAGIC!
    <Character>: Pardon the yelling...
    <Character>: Not all magic is evil!
    King Alteon: Then dangerous!

    King Alteon: Magic is dangerous!
    <Character>: Rocks are also dangerous!

    <Character>: Are rocks evil?

    *Your blunt question surprises Alteon.*

    <Character>: Your Highness, magic is a tool.
    <Character>: And tools are not dangerous or evil by themselves. They are dangerous only by those who use them with that intent.
    King Alteon: ...

    *Victoria nods her head at you continuously as her smile widen, indicating that Alteon is becoming doubtful about the information that you have fed to him.*

    <Character>: Magic is not evil... nor good.

    <Character>: People are.

    *After telling the Rose's wrongdoings to King Alteon, you assure that he think over their conversation.*

    <Character>: Please think on that...
    King Alteon: ...
    <Character>: Now, Princess Victoria, do you—
    Robina: Robina.

    *Alteon looks down at the ground, still assessing your conversation to him.*

    <Character>: ... Robina, do you know if there is some sort of hidden... room... or anything of the sort in this castle where you can wait out this little invasion?
    Robina: I... I don't know.
    Robina: Father?
    King Alteon: No, there isn't...
    King Alteon: It's a peaceful kingdom, there was no need for such a thing in this castle.

    *Assessing the diminishing options to escape, you look down at the ground to think of a way, but sadly, you are stumped as the only way is to continue.*

    <Character>: We'll think of something, let's continue for now.

    *You and Robina continue through the hallways as they continue fighting various Magisterium golems, while King Alteon trails behind; meanwhile, back at the upper level, Jaania and Zlatomira's magical attacks are still locked in a stalemate, but both of them seem to be visibly drained from their duel.*

    Zlatomira: My magick is much more powerful than yours! You... ugh... won't keep this up forever!
    Zlatomira: You will tire eventually.
    Jaania: *pant* *pant*

    *Jaania glares at Zlatomira's magic source—a blue human husk—behind her curiously.*

    Jaania: This is your magic source, isn't it?
    Zlatomira: ...
    Jaania: You use people as walking nexuses? That's despicable.
    Zlatomira: You're telling ME what's despicable?
    Zlatomira: We did our research on you!
    Jaania: ...
    Jaania: I will repeat myself. Tell me what the Fissure is.
    Jaania: It'll save me time, I already have people investigating it...
    Jaania: I'll know sooner or later, might as well be sooner.
    Zlatomira: No!
    Zlatomira: Ugh!
    Jaania: You have attacked a royal court and infiltrated the castle. I assume you have more of those... golems of yours, scattered throughout it.
    Jaania: I even assume that they have attacked the king himself.
    Jaania: Granted, <Character> most likely took the king to safety...
    Jaania: Nonetheless, you have foolishly started a cascade of events that will inevitably lead to an intercontinental conflict.
    Jaania: All because of me.
    Jaania: I'd say I'm flatttered... *pant*... but I'm not that petty.
    Jaania: Was it worth it?

    *As she is still locked in her duel with Jaania, Zlatomira responds an answer to Jaania's question.*

    Zlatomira: We've... underestimated you, that much is true.
    Zlatomira: But you will be stopped!
    Zlatomira: You should fear us, because the Proclamation magi—

    *Suddenly, as Zlatomira warns Jaania about the Proclamation, Akanthus stabs her from behind, ending the stalemate; back in the hallway, Robina excitedly points toward a way out from the castle.*

    Robina: Here!
    Robina: We can go through here and escape the castle!
    King Alteon: And where will we go? Maybe we could hide in the city?
    <Character>: What if they are there too? Too many unknowns.
    King Alteon: I can't abandon my people!
    <Character>: You're not—

    *Suddenly, you hear Alteon cry out in pain; you and Robina look toward him and discovered that a Magesterium golem has attacked the king from behind, causing Alteon to fall to the ground.*

    Robina (briefly): DAD!!!

    *Scene cuts to black.*

    <Character>: NO!

    *Meanwhile, in the Magesterium's citadel on Azaveyr, a group of their acolytes had witnessed the events on the attack on Swordhaven Castle through a rotating runic circle in the center of the room.*

    ??? (1): The link has been broken.

    ??? (1): We've lost visual contact. Such a shame...
    ??? (2): We have lost two.
    ??? (3): That simply means two positions are now open.
    ??? (4): That's very true.
    ??? (5): What now?
    ??? (6): Prepare the Proclamation, of course.
    ??? (7): Are we sure about that?
    ??? (8): There's no choice.
    ??? (8): We have started a war.
    ??? (1): A war? With the Proclamations, it's not adequate to even call it a war.
    ??? (2): Rightly so.
    ??? (3): It's about time we expanded our empire...

    *Back in the hallway on Swordhaven Castle, a terribly worried Robina kneels on the ground to watch over her injured and unconscious father, King Alteon.*

    <Character>: I didn't hear it coming! Is he alright?!
    Robina: I don't know! Dad?!

    *You and Robina hear the sound of swords striking nearby.*

    <Character>: What was that?!
    ???: And stay down...

    *The sounds came from a brief skirmish that ended with Melissa emerging as the victor against five of the Magesterium golems; Melissa turns around to regroup with you and Robina.*

    <Character>: Melissa!!!
    Melissa: <Character>! I used the panic to look for Jaania's room to see if I could find something... but it was sealed with magic.
    Melissa: What are you do—
    Melissa: Oh no... the king!
    Robina: He's badly injured!!!
    Melissa: ...
    <Character>: We need to move!

    <Character>: We need to escape, quick!
    Melissa: Follow me!
    <Character>: Where?!
    Melissa: Sulen'Eska.
    <Character>: I... don't think this is a good idea, Melissa.
    Melissa: Well, it's the only one you have right now! Kara will help!

    *You remain silent as you still assess the decision of taking the wounded king to Sulen'Eska, causing Melissa to lose her patience.*

    Melissa: <Character>!

    *Still assessing this decision, you remain silent, causing Melissa to be impatient even more.*

    Melissa: Sulen'Eska! Now!

    *Realizing that you don't have much of a choice, you decided to take King Alteon to Sulen'Eska and try to get Robina to come with them.*

    <Character>: Robina, come!
    Robina: I—

    *Robina looks at her wounded father before looking at you with tears in her eyes as she refuses to go with you and Melissa to Sulen'Eska.*

    Robina: I can't!
    <Character>: WHAT?!
    Robina: I can't come with you to—
    <Character>: He's your father!!!
    Robina: I—
    Robina: P-please take care of him!!!

    *Robina quickly runs away in the opposite direction, crying.*

    <Character>: ROBINA!!!

    *Melissa looks on at her, unfazed by Robina's outburst; as she runs away, Amadeus—hiding through one of the doors in the hallways—ominously glares at Robina; meanwhile, at the upper level, Jaania and Akanthus have a worrisome discussion about the events that transpired.*

    Jaania: *pant* It's... *pant*... about time you've showed up...
    Akanthus: Apologies, my Lady. I was occupied somewhere else. I came as fast as I could.
    Akanthus: I will gather troops and pursue <Character> at once.
    Jaania: ...
    Jaania: What do you mean...?
    Akanthus: <Character> and her/his associates have kidnapped the king.
    Jaania: What?!
    Akanthus: I have seen it with my own eyes.
    Jaania: ...
    Jaania: Then why didn't you STOP her/him!?
    Akanthus: It was already too late. Forgive me.
    Jaania: Leave me...
    Akanthus: As you wish.

    *Jaania's eyes widen in shock upon hearing the news of King Alteon's kidnapping from Akanthus; scene fades to black.*

    A few hours later

    *At the Ivory Tower, Jaania changes out of her cyan dress and gets ready to go to bed after a long, tumultuous night; she closes her eyes and fears the worst.*

    Jaania: This day can't get any worse...

    *As Jaania sits down on her bed in order to go to sleep, she notices a peculiar vase.*

    Jaania: Huh...?

    *As Jaania begins to see the vase more clearly, she—now alarmed—recognizes the Elemental Roses on it as she is familiar with them back when she was an apprentice under her former teacher, Brump; scene cuts to black.*
