Final Fantasy V

トゥールの村 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Village of Toole

Faris and the other pirates head into the pub. Faris reappears when shopping for equipment.

Since not all equipment can be used by every Job, make sure to get at least basic equipment for each one, and don't forget to buy magic if you want your mages to have spells! As is often the case, boxes, pots, and other things around the town contain free items and money. Take everything that isn't nailed down.

Anyway, the destination is the large house on the north end of the village. The old man inside is shocked to see Lenna.

ゾック「おお、レナ様! Zokk: Oh, lady Lenna!
レナ「ゾック! Lenna: Zokk!
ゾック「おひさしぶりです。 Zokk: It has been a while.
レナ「ゾック…お願いがあるの。
   ウォルスに行くために
   トルナ運河を通りたいの。
Lenna: Zokk... I have a request.
 We want to pass through the
 Tolna Canal to go to Worus.
ゾック「ですが、風のクリスタルが
    なき今、あそこは魔物の巣
    です。危険です!
Zokk: Yes, but now that the Wind Crystal
 is gone, that place is a den of monsters.
 It is dangerous!
ゾック「それに…
    運河のカギは、なくして
    しまいました…
Zokk: Besides...
 I have lost the key to the canal...
ゾック「レナ様!
    ともかく、今夜はこの家に
    おとまりください!
Zokk: Lady Lenna!
 In any case, please stay here tonight!

Lenna looks at the others, sees no objection, and nods in acceptance.

ゾック「よかった!
    では、さっそくこちらへ!
Zokk: Very good!
 Well then, right this way!

Zokk leads them to a side room.

Scene change to night. Butz, Lenna, and Galuf are asleep. Butz wakes up and walks outside.

『クリスタルか…
 そういえば、おやじが昔…
"Crystals...?
 Come to think of it, my old man used to..."

Scene change to Butz's childhood home. He's in bed, and his parents are talking.

「クリスタルだけは、守らねば
 ならん…
I must protect the Crystals...
「私に、もしもの事が
 あっても、バッツには
 クリスタルのことは言わないで
 くれ…
: Even if something should happen to me,
 don't tell Butz about the Crystals...
 あいつには…
 せおわせたくない…
 I don't want to burden him with this...
「あなた!
 そんなこと言わないで!!
: Darling!
 Don't say things like that!!

Scene change back to the present. Butz walks back inside. Zokk stands by Lenna's bedside.

レナ「……
   お父様…
   クリスタルは守ります…
Lenna: ...
 Father...
 I'll protect the Crystals...

Zokk walks out of the room and sees Butz.

ゾック「どうしたんじゃ? Zokk: What's wrong?
『いや…
 ちょっと、死んだおやじと
 おふくろの事を思い出して…
"Nothing...
 Just remembering my
 dead mom and dad a bit..."
ゾック「これを使ってくれ! Zokk: Use this!
『これは?
ゾック「運河のカギじゃ。
    これで、門を開ければ
    ウォルスまで行ける。
"And this is?"
Zokk: The canal key.
 If you open the gate with
 this you can get to Worus.
ゾック「レナ様のことが心配で
    かくしておったんじゃ。
Zokk: I hid it out of worry
 for lady Lenna.
ゾック「たのむ!
    レナ様を守ってくれ!!
Zokk: Please!
 Protect lady Lenna!!

Scene change to morning. Butz, Lenna, and Galuf get up.

Upstairs in the pub, someone with long purple hair is asleep in one of the rooms.

『ちょっと、おれが見てくる。 "I'll go take a quick look."

The others nod. Butz approaches the bed, and the person rolls partway over, looking distinctly feminine. After recovering from the initial shock, Butz gets a little heart over his head, then walks out of the room.

ガラフ「バッツ!
    どうしたんじゃ?
Galuf: Butz!
 What's the matter?
『いや…なんでも……
 頭がおかしくなっちまったかな?
"Ah... nothing...
 maybe I've just lost my mind?"
ガラフ「ちょっと、どけっ! Galuf: Hold on, out of the way!

Galuf pushes past Butz and into the room. His reaction to the person in the bed is much the same. Galuf walks back out, and he and Butz nod to each other, then blink their eyes as though trying to clear their heads.

ガラフ「きれいじゃ…
    ドキドキするぞい!
Galuf: So pretty...
 my heart's racing!

They blink a few more times. Lenna walks over.

レナ「2人ともなに言ってるの! Lenna: What are you two talking about!?

Meanwhile, Faris gets out of bed.

ファリス「う…ううん…
     よくねた…
Faris: Mm... mmm...
 Slept well...

Faris stretches and walks out into the hall, then notices Butz and Galuf.

ファリス「お前ら、なにやってる
     んだ?
     しっかりしろよ!
Faris: What're you guys doing?
 Pull yourselves together!

Faris walks to Butz and Lenna to Galuf, and... well, I'm not really sure what they do, but the hearts clear up, Butz and Galuf shake their heads rapidly, then scratch their heads. Faris walks back into the room.

ファリス「悪いが、ちょっとひとり
     になりたいんだ…
     またな。
Faris: Sorry, but I wanna be
 alone for a while...
 See ya.

Faris locks the door and sits at a table, apparently deep in thought.

Make sure to play the piano while you're here, even though it sounds terrible at this point.

As they reach the edge of town, Faris walks out of the pub.

海ぞく「おかしらー!
    待ってくれー!!
Pirates: Boss!
 Wait!!

The pirates file out of the pub.

ファリス「お前たちは
     おいて行く!
Faris: I'm leaving you guys behind!
「おかしら!
「どうしてっ!?
「あっしらは、おかしらに
 ついていきやすぜ!!
: Boss!
: Why!?
: We'll go with you, boss!!
ファリス「だめだ。 Faris: No.
海ぞく「おかしらっ!! Pirates: Boss!!
ファリス「長い旅になりそうだ…
     お前たちは、おれが
     いない間、アジトを
     守ってくれ!
Faris: This could be a long trip...
 You guys protect the hideout
 while I'm away!
海ぞく「おかしらっ! Pirates: Boss!
ファリス「たのむ…
海ぞく「おかしら…
Faris: I'm counting on you...
Pirates: Boss...
海ぞく「わかりやした! Pirates: Roger!
海ぞく「おかしら
    お気をつけて!
Pirates: Boss,
 be careful!

海ぞく船 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Pirate Ship

Lenna is on deck, looking downcast. Butz walks up to her.

『レナ、どうしたんだ? "Lenna, what's wrong?"
「風のクリスタルは
 くだけちってしまった…
: The Wind Crystal shattered...
「今は、風の力が弱まって
 いるだけ…
 でも、しばらくすれば
 風は完全にとまってしまう。
: For now, the wind's power
 is only weakened...
 but before long, the wind
 will completely stop.
 そして何年かすれば、空は
 よどみ、鳥たちは飛ぶ場所を
 うしなう…
 Within several years, the air
 will stagnate, and the birds
 will lose their place to fly...
「お父様は、ほかの3つの
 クリスタルを守れと
 言ってたわ。
: Father said to protect
 the other three Crystals.
『3つのクリスタル…? "Three Crystals...?"
「水、火、土の3つの
 クリスタル。
: The three Crystals of
 Water, Fire, and Earth.
『もしそれがくだけちれば…? "If they shatter...?
「しばらくは、何もおこらない…
 でも…
 じょじょに大地はくさり、
 水はよどみ、流れをとめ、
: For a time, nothing will happen...
 But...
 gradually, the earth will rot,
 water will stagnate, currents stop,
 火の力はとまり、さむさに
 こごえるようになる…
 人の住めない世界になる…
 the power of fire will cease,
 and we'll be frozen in the cold...
 It will be a world people can't live in...

Galuf walks onto deck.

ガラフ「クリスタルを守るぞい! Galuf: I'll protect the Crystals!
『記憶がもどったのか? "Did your memory come back?"
ガラフ「いいや。
    だが、守りに行くんじゃ!
Galuf: No.
 But I'll go and protect them!
ファリス「おれも行くぜ! Faris: I'm going too!
ファリス「レナのおやじをさがさ
     なきゃならないしな!
Faris: And we've also got Lenna's
 old man to search for!
『かげにつつまれて、消えて
 しまったタイクーン王を?
"King Tycoon, who disappeared
 engulfed in shadow?"
ファリス「生きてるさ!
     レナのおやじは、ぜった
     いに死んだりしない!
Faris: He's alive!
 There's no way Lenna's old
 man would just go and die!
レナ「バッツ…
   いっしょに来てくれる…?
Lenna: Butz...
 will you come along with us...?
『おれは、ただ旅してただけだ…
 だけど、こいつを見てると…
"I was just traveling...
 but when I look at these..."
レナ「クリスタルのかけら… Lenna: The Crystal shards...
『この世界を守るために
 力をかしてくれてる…
 風の心…
 … … …
"They're lending us their power
 to protect this world...
 Heart of Wind...
 ... ... ...
 行こう! クリスタルを守りに。  Let's go! To protect the Crystals."
ガラフ「よーし! 行くぞい! Galuf: All right! We're off!

トルナ運河 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Tolna Canal

The canal might take its name from a town or county in Hungary, or that could just be a coincidence.

Butz unlocks the canal gate.

ガラフ「バッツ!
    いったいどこで、運河の
    カギを手に入れたんじゃ?
Galuf: Butz!
 Where on earth did you
 get the canal key?
『どこでも、いいじゃないか。
 さあ、行くぞ!
"Does it really matter where?
 Come on, let's go!"

As reported, the canal is full of monsters.

I wouldn't have noticed if TV Tropes hadn't pointed it out, but the monsters here, all of which are of the tentacled variety, only attack Lenna and Faris, ignoring Butz and Galuf completely even if they're the only ones left standing. Given what tentacle monsters are known for in less family-friendly contexts, that certainly could count as Getting Crap Past the Radar, but that's not the only reason they would have done this...

Farther into the canal, a whirlpool appears ahead of the ship.

『なんだありゃ? "What's that?"
レナ「まさか…
   運河に、封じられし魔物…
Lenna: It couldn't be...
 the monster sealed in the canal...
ファリス「かじが、きかない Faris: The helm's not responding.
ガラフ「すいよせられてるぞっ! Galuf: We're being pulled in!
ファリス「シルドラ、どうした!? Faris: Syldra, what's wrong!?
『何か来るぞっ! "Something's coming!"

It's another boss. This one's weak to Thunder, so feel free to... well, you know how to cast Thunder, right? Other attacks also work. Just watch out for 'paralysis' and the attack that drops a character's HP to single digits.

After the battle, the boat drifts out of the whirlpool, but Syldra's still stuck!

ファリス「シルドラ! Faris: Syldra!
『まだ、生きてるぞ!
 シルドラを道づれにする
 気だ!
"It's still alive!
 It's trying to take Syldra
 down with it!"
ファリス「シルドラ! Faris: Syldra!

Butz and Galuf restrain Faris, who looks about ready to dive in.

ファリス「はなせ!
     はなせよ!!
     シルドラー!!!
Faris: Leggo!
 Leggo!!
 Syldraaa!!!

Syldra is sucked down into the whirlpool...

Scene change to night on deck. Butz and Galuf stand by the railing.

『ファリスは…… "Faris is..."
ガラフ「フム。
   今は、そっとしておいて
   やるのがよいじゃろう…
Galuf: Yeah.
 Probably best to leave
 him be for now.
『この船、流されてるな… "Our ship's getting washed away..."

The screen pans up to show Lenna and Faris standing together.

レナ「ファリス…
   シルドラは、きっと
   生きてる…
Lenna: Faris...
 I'm sure Syldra is alive...

The ship continues to drift...


船の墓場 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Ship Graveyard

...and eventually lands in a mess of shipwrecks.

『ここは?
ファリス「船の墓場…
"Where are we?"
Faris: The Ship Graveyard...
レナ「ひょうりゅうした船が
   集まってできた
   アンデッドの巣…
Lenna: A lair of the Undead,
 made of drifting ships that
 have collected here...
ガラフ「とにかくここを脱出じゃ Galuf: Anyhow, let's get out of here.

Head down after leaving the ship and wait for stepping stones to appear to reach a chest with a Flail.

Before long, the party comes to a flooded ship.

ファリス「ここを通るのか?
     ぬれちまうな…
Faris: We're going through here?
 We'll get wet...
『なに言ってんだ。行くぞ! "What are you saying? Let's go!"

A little while later, they reach a dry cabin.

『ビショビショだァ…
レナ「ここは、安全そうね。
   休んでいきましょ。
"Soaked..."
Lenna: It looks safe here.
 Let's rest.

Lenna heads for a nearby room.

レナ「ふくをかわかなきゃ…
   見ちゃだめよ!
Lenna: Need to dry my clothes...
 don't peek!

Butz gathers some material and starts a fire.

『さあ、かわかそう! "Now, let's dry off!"
ファリス「おれは、いいよ… Faris: I'm fine...
ガラフ「なにを言っとる!
    かぜをひくぞ
Galuf: What are you saying!?
 You'll catch cold.

Butz and Galuf try to drag Faris closer to the fire.

ファリス「やめろ!
     やめろったら!!
Faris: Quit it!
 Cut it out!!

Faris goes ballistic and flings them away. Lenna comes out.

レナ「どうしたの? Lenna: What's wrong?
『レナ、こ、こいつ… "Lenna, th-this guy's..."
ガラフ「女じゃ! Galuf: A girl!

With all the clues the game has been dropping, from how Faris's outfits tend to resemble Lenna's considerably more than Butz's or Galuf's (not going bare-chested as a Monk being the most telling at this point, though certain later jobs are rather more blatant about it), to the scene in the inn, to the tentacle monsters ignoring Butz and Galuf but not Faris, this really shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

ファリス「悪いか! Faris: You got a problem with that!?
レナ「でも、どうして? Lenna: But, why?
ファリス「おれは、小さいころ
     海ぞくに、ひろわれて
     育ったんだ…
Faris: I was found and
 raised by the pirates
 when I was young...
『それで、男のフリを? "So you pretended to be a guy?"
ファリス「海ぞくで、女じゃあ
     バカにされるからな…
Faris: 'Cause I'd be made a fool of
 by the pirates for being a girl...
ガラフ「フム。たしかに男にしては
    美しすぎると思っとった!
Galuf: Yeah. I thought for sure you
 were too pretty to be a man!

He should see Fushigi Yuugi (to name one series). Hotohori prides himself on being as beautiful as any woman, and you'd never guess Nuriko was born a boy.

ファリス「でもなあ!女だからって
     バカにすんなよ!
『あ、ああ…
Faris: Well, anyway! Don't make fun
 of me just 'cause I'm a woman!
"Uh, right..."
ファリス「よしっ!ねるぞ! Faris: All right! I'm gonna sleep!

Faris hops into a nearby bed.

Scene change to later. Everyone is in bed. Faris gets up energetically.

ファリス「あーあ、よくねた…
     よしっ!行くぞ!!
Faris: Ahhh, slept well...
 All right! Let's go!

Galuf falls out of bed.

ファリス「なにやってんだ
     行くぞ!
Faris: What're you doing?
 Let's go!
ガラフ「やっぱり男のような
    気がする…
Galuf: She seems more like
 a man after all...
『どっちでもいいさ。
 ファリスはファリスだ!
"Doesn't matter either way.
 Faris is Faris!"
レナ「うん! Lenna: Yeah!

One of the ships ahead has a world map, very useful for navigating outside.

A final set of stepping stones leads to a small beach. The screen gets dark...

『やな感じだな… "I've got a bad feeling..."

A green-haired woman appears in a sparkle of light. She looks like Butz's mother from his earlier flashback.

ステラ「バッツ…
    こっちへおいで…
Stella: Butz...
 come over here...
『母さん… "Mom..."

Butz looks kind of dazed and drifts over toward her.

King Tycoon appears in another sparkle.

タイクーン王「こっちへ来なさい… King Tycoon: Come over here...
レナ「お父様! Lenna: Father!
ファリス「レナ!?……
     ……うッ…
Faris: Lenna!? ...
 ...ugh...

As Lenna drifts toward him, Faris moves as if to stop her, then loses it herself.

A girl with blonde hair in a ponytail appears in a third sparkle.

女の子「おじいちゃん、
    こっちに来て…
Girl: Grandpa, come over here...

Galuf shakes his head rapidly as if trying to clear it.

ガラフ「だれじゃ…?
    思い出せん…
Galuf: Who're you...?
 I can't remember...

Butz, Lenna, and Faris collapse, and blue flames (souls) rise from their bodies and drift toward the phantoms. A tall woman appears behind them.

「命を吸い取られるがいい…
 私たちの仲間になるのだ!
: May your lives be sucked out...
 become more of our kind!
ガラフ「きさま、何者だ! Galuf: Who the hell are you!?
「ほー…
 私のじゅつにかからぬとは…
: Oh...?
 How were you not caught in my spell...?
「私はセイレーン。
 3人の命はもらった。
 じゃまをしなければ、お前は
 帰してやろう。
: I am Siren.
 I have taken their lives.
 If you don't get in the way,
 I'll let you leave.
ガラフ「そうはいかん!
セイレーン「なぜ、その3人を
      守る?
Galuf: That's not happening!
Siren: Why do you protect
 those three?
ガラフ「わしの…
    仲間だからじゃ!
Galuf: Because they're...
 my companions!
ガラフ「まどわされるな!
    みんな目をさませ!
Galuf: Don't be misled!
 All of you, open your eyes!

Galuf picks up and slaps Butz, Lenna, and Faris. The illusions vanish, and the three recover.

バッツが目をさました!
レナが目をさました!
ファリスが目をさました!
Butz woke up!
Lenna woke up!
Faris woke up!
『ガラフ! "Galuf!"
『来るぞっ!! "Here she comes!!"

Another boss. At first, she uses magic, and physical attacks work well against her, but magic poorly if at all. After several rounds, Siren will turn Undead, use physical attacks instead of magic, and gain resistance to physical attacks, but become vulnerable to magic (especially Flame) and take damage from curatives (Cure and healing items like Potions). If the battle drags on, she'll keep changing between the two forms periodically.

Anyone attempting a low-level game should note that she's level 2, so characters at that level can use Goblin Punch for (relatively) high damage.

Beat her when normal for a Bronze Armor, or when undead for a Bronze Shield.

『ガラフ!
 命のおんじんだな!!
"Galuf!
 You saved our lives!!"
ガラフ「なーに…… Galuf: It's no big...
『てれるなよ! "Don't get embarrassed!"
ガラフ「てれとらんわい!! Galuf: I'm not getting embarrassed!!

The others laugh before moving out.


カーウェンの町 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Town of Curwen

The name is up to debate, but Googling gives Curwen more often than Carwen. Googling that in English finds several historical figures of some note.

The town is on the coastline south from the ship graveyard. There are the usual shops and numerous villagers and such, but the important one is the woman by the port.

この町の南、海をこえた所に
ウォルスの国があります。
水のクリスタルの力を利用して
いるとか…
The country of Worus is across
the sea south of this city.
I hear they're using the power
of the Crystal of Water there...
レナ「とめなきゃ!
   ウォルスへ行く方法は?
Lenna: We've got to stop them!
 How do you get to Worus?
「以前は船が出ていましたが、風が
 弱まったせいで船はいっさい…
: Ships used to go there, but because
 the wind died down, they're all...
ガラフ「シルドラもいないしのォ… Galuf: And Syldra's gone too...

Faris looks upset.

ガラフ「ファリス…
    すまん。
Galuf: Faris...
 sorry.
レナ「バッツ
   何かいい方法はないの?
Lenna: Butz,
 isn't there any good way?
『風がないとなれば、海はだめ… "With no wind, the sea's out..."
『海はだめなら… "If the sea's no good..."

Another woman appears in front of the pub.

うちのだんなが北の山に竜が
飛んで行くのを見かけたって
言ってるの。
My husband says he
spotted a dragon flying to
the northern mountain.
でも、誰も信じてくれないから
パブの2階でいじけてるわ。
But since no one believes him, he's
moping on the second floor of the pub.

As it turns out, he has useful information.

「本当に見たんだよ
 竜が北の山に
 飛んで行くのをさー!
: I really saw it!
 A dragon flying to the
 northern mountain!
レナ「どんな竜!? Lenna: What kind of dragon!?
「なんだか、よろいみたいなのを
 つけたさあ…
: It had something on that
 looked kinda like armor...
レナ「お父様の飛竜が北の山に? Lenna: Father's wyvern, on the northern mountain?
ファリス「どうしたんだ? Faris: What's wrong?
レナ「北の山には飛竜草と言う草が
   はえているの。
   飛竜の傷はその草でしか
   なおせない。
Lenna: On the northern mountain
 grows an herb called wyvernweed.
 A wyvern's wounds can't be healed
 except with that herb.
レナ「もしかしたら、飛竜は
   傷ついて…
Lenna: Maybe the wyvern is wounded...
ガラフ「海がだめなら… Galuf: If the sea's no good...
『… … …空だ!! "... ... ...the sky!!"
レナ「飛竜ならウォルスへ
   行ける。
ガラフ「じょうできじゃ
    北の山へ、行くぞい!
Lenna: The wyvern can get to Worus.
Galuf: Excellent.
 Let's go to the northern mountain!

But first, play the piano. Well, at least that wasn't quite so awful as last time...


北の山 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Northern Mountain

The mountain is fairly uneventful for a while. Just don't step on the poison flowers.

Eventually, Lenna spots a helmet along a cliffside.

レナ「お父様のかぶと! Lenna: Father's helmet!

Lenna is shot with an arrow.

レナが毒におかされた! Lenna was afflicted with poison!
『レナ! "Lenna!"

Just to make things worse, part of the path collapses, between Lenna and the others. A woman approaches Lenna.

マギサ「うふふッ
    飛竜を追って、やって
    来たけど、とんだえものが
    かかったわ!
Magisa: U hu hu,
 I came here after the wyvern,
 but what a prize I've caught!
『飛竜を?
マギサ「飛竜のつのは、高く売れる
    のよーッホッホ!
"The wyvern?"
Magisa: You can sell wyvern
 horns for a bundle, ho, ho!
マギサ「見ればタイクーンの王女!
    だんなへ、いいみやげ
    になるわ。
    ヒッヒッ…!
Magisa: Look at this, Tycoon's princess!
 She'll make a good present
 for my husband.
 Hee, hee...!
ファリス「やめろ! Faris: Cut it out!

Faris gets a running start and hops over the gap, only to have more of the path collapse beheath her.

『ファリス! "Faris!"
マギサ「落ちたよー!ヒッヒッ… Magisa: You fell! Hee, hee...
マギサ「なにっ! Magisa: What!?

Faris climbs back up the cliff and tosses a rope over to Butz. They secure the ends, and Butz and Galuf cross to confront Magisa.

『レナ!しっかり "Lenna! Hang on!"
マギサ「くっそーこうなったら
    4人まとめて、しまつして
    やるっ!
Magisa: Shit! If this is what it's come to,
 I'll deal with all four of you at once!

A boss battle begins. Lenna starts with 'poison' status.

Magisa likes using magic attacks. Use 'silence' status to disable all but Aero (Blue Magic is unaffected for whatever reason). After her health drops to about 300 (out of 650), she summons help in the form of a hulking brute.

マギサ「あんた! でばんだよ! Magisa: Darling! Your turn!

Forza is a purely physical fighter, and strong enough to complicate matters, but he's vulnerable to 'sleep'. It's also possible to keep her from summoning him by taking off her last 300 or so HP all at once (the Monk's !Charge helps with this). Win for 6 ABP, a Whip, and (if Forza appeared) a Strength Drink.

レナ「ファリス、ありがとう! Lenna: Faris, thanks!

The wyvern lies at the summit, ringed by poison flowers.

レナ「飛竜!
ファリス「ひどい傷だ…
Lenna: The wyvern!
Faris: Nasty wounds...
レナ「飛竜…
   今、なおしてあげるからね。
Lenna: Wyvern...
 I'll heal you right away.

Lenna walks across the poison flowers toward a plant by the cliff edge.

ファリス「レナ!何をするんだ! Faris: Lenna! What're you doing!?
レナ「だいじょうぶ。
   来ないで!
   飛竜草で手当てをすれば…
Lenna: It's fine.
 Stay back!
 If I treat it with the wyvernweed...

Lenna collects the plant, crosses back, and reaches toward Faris.

レナ「飛竜草をあの子に…
   早く…
Lenna: Give it the wyvernweed...
 Quickly...

Faris takes the plant and feeds it to the wyvern as Lenna collapses.

レナ「元気になって… Lenna: Get better...

The wyvern stretches and cries out. Galuf walks up to Lenna.

ガラフ「まったく
    むちゃするわい
Galuf: Sheesh,
 you're acting ridiculous.

The wyvern flies over to Lenna and prods at her, or something. She gets up, looking energetic.

レナの毒が消えた! Lenna's poison is gone!
レナ「飛竜…ありがとう!
ガラフ「元気になったぞい!
    さあ、行くぞ!!
Lenna: Wyvern... thanks!
Galuf: She got better!
 Come on, here we go!!

Butz walks a bit away, looking embarrassed.

『高い所はにがてなんだ… "I'm not good with heights..."

The others look at each other, and laugh.

『何がおかしいんだ!
ガラフ「それそれ
    乗った乗った!
"What's so funny!?"
Galuf: Come on, on with you!

Lenna and Faris get on the wyvern, and Galuf pushes Butz on too. It spreads its wings and flies off.

The wyvern can cross land and sea, but doesn't fly high enough to pass over mountains. Several new areas are reachable now, but let's start with Lenna's home, on the far side of the meteorite...


タイクーン城 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Tycoon Castle

This trip is entirely optional, and what happens during the visit varies after certain events later on...

A soldier stands watch at the castle gate. He spots Lenna.

よくぞ、ご無事で!! It is good to see you well!!

The soldier opens the gates.

大臣がお待ちしております The chancellor awaits.

The chancellor is shocked to see Lenna, and so are the guards inside.

大臣「レナ様!
レナ「心配かけてごめんなさい。
大臣「とにかく、城に
   おもどりください!
Chancellor: Lady Lenna!
Lenna: I'm sorry to have worried you.
Chancellor: In any case,
 please return to the castle!
大臣「魔物との戦いで兵士も
   ほとんど残っておりません。
   姫がいなくては再建も
   ままなりません!
Chancellor: Few soldiers remain
 from fighting the monsters.
 With the princess away, the
 rebuilding isn't going well either!
レナ「行かなくてはならないの…
大臣「それではこの国は
   どうなります?
Lenna: I have to go...
Chancellor: Then what will
 become of our kingdom?
レナ「この国だけではないの…
   世界すべてにかかわる事が
   起きようとしている…
Lenna: It's not just our kingdom...
 something that will affect the
 entire world is about to happen...
レナ「…… それに……
   お父様は生きています
Lenna: ... Besides...
 father is alive.
大臣「わかりました。
   この国は必ず、われわれで
   守ります!
Chancellor: Understood.
 We will make sure to protect
 this country ourselves!
レナ「必ず、お父様をつれて
   もどります。
   それまで、みんなで
   がんばってください。
Lenna: I will be sure to
 return with my father.
 Until then, everyone,
 please carry on.

The chancellor and soldiers present show their agreement.

大臣「とりあえず今夜はこの城に…
レナ「ええ。
Chancellor: At least stay the night here...
Lenna: Yes.

Fade out, and scene change to Lenna lying awake in bed. She gets up and walks outside, and finds Faris standing on a balcony.

レナ「ファリス? Lenna: Faris?
ファリス「えっ、なんだレナか。 Faris: Oh, it's you, Lenna.
レナ「姉さん…
ファリス「!?
Lenna: Sister...
Faris: !?
レナ「姉さんでしょ?
ファリス「なに言ってんだ!
     おれが…
     そんなわけないだろ!
Lenna: You're my big sister, right?
Faris: What're you saying!?
 Me...?
 There's no way!
レナ「でも… Lenna: But...
ファリス「海ぞくのおれが、本当は
     お姫様かい…
     じょうだんきついよ!
Faris: Me, a pirate,
 really a princess...?
 That's not even funny!

Faris laughs anyway, then leaves rather hastily.

レナ「でも…
   あなたのペンダントは…
Lenna: But...
 your pendant...

Fade out and scene change to a guest room. Butz is asleep in one of the beds, and there's no sign of the others.

「バッツ
 バッツ!
: Butz,
 Butz!
『……
 …フニャッ!
"...
 ...*yawn*!"

Butz half-jumps, half-falls out of bed. He starts stretching, or something, then gets a big question mark over his head. The lights come on, showing Lenna, Galuf, and Faris all standing around, apparently watching him.

「クスクス…
「なにやっとるんじゃい!
「へんなやつだなあ。
: *giggle*...
: What are you doing!?
: What a weirdo.

Based on how they talk (not to mention the order), the first line is Lenna's, the second Galuf's, and the third Faris's.

Butz looks around as if annoyed, then scratches his head in embarrassment.

The chancellor is found in a storage room off of the castle courtyard.

大臣「レナ様、タイクーンに昔より
   つたわる、つえです。
   きっと役に立ちます。
レナ「ありがとう!
Chancellor: Lady Lenna, this staff has
 long been passed down in Tycoon.
 It will surely be of use.
Lenna: Thanks!

Though the game doesn't say so, he gives Lenna a Staff of Healing. Chests in the room contain a Glasscraft Bell, a Shuriken, and an Asura, and there are also various items in pots all over the castle, as usual.


ウォルス城 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Worus Castle

The nearby town has new equipment and spells, but the spells are Timespace and Summon magics that aren't usable just yet.

There's water flowing all over the outside of the castle. Lenna goes to the throne room to see the king.

ウォルス王「これはレナ姫! King Worus: Ah, Princess Lenna!
レナ「ウォルス王!
   おひさしぶりです。
Lenna: King Worus!
 It has been some time.
レナ「お願いです!
   今すぐ、水のクリスタルの
   力を増幅させるのを
   やめさせてください!
Lenna: I have a request!
 Please stop having the
 Crystal amplified at once!
王「ハッハッハ…これはおどろいた。
  そんなことできるわけがない。
  クリスタルのおかげでゆたかに
  くらせておるのですぞ。
King: Ha, ha, ha... now that's a surprise.
 I couldn't possibly do such a thing.
 It's thanks to the Crystal that we're
 living in prosperity.
レナ「でも、このままでは
   クリスタルはくだけちって
   しまうのです!
Lenna: But if this continues,
 the Crystal will shatter!
王「フーム…
  風のクリスタルの事は
  聞いておる……
King: Hmm...
 I have heard about
 the Wind Crystal...
「しかしじゃ…
 ウォルスの水のクリスタルが
 同じように、くだけちるか
 どうかはわからん…
: However...
 We don't know whether
 or not Worus's Water Crystal
 will similarly shatter...
「それに
 みんしゅうは反対するじゃろう。
: Furthermore,
 the people would likely object.
『そんなこと言ってるひまは… "There's no time to be saying things like..."

As if in response to Butz's words, the screen turns red and rumbles...

『なんだ!? "What the!?"

A meteor falls from the sky and lands near the tower to the north. A soldier rushes into the throne room.

兵士「大変です!
   いん石がウォルスの塔の
   近くに落ちました!
Soldier: Big trouble!
 A meteorite fell near
 the Worus Tower!
王「なにっ!! King: What!!

The king looks out the window.

王「なんだと!
  すぐに兵を集めろ!
  塔に向かう!
King: What's this!?
 Gather the soldiers at once!
 We're heading for the tower!
兵士「はっ! Soldier: Sir!

The soldier rushes out, and the king turns to Lenna.

王「すまぬが、急用ができた。
  レナ姫よ。
  後でもい一度、話し合おう!
King: I'm sorry, Princess Lenna,
 but urgent business has come up.
 Let us talk this over again later!

The king heads out of the room, and is met by several soldiers.

王「行くぞ!! King: Move out!!

They leave.

There are some interesting spots in the castle, particularly the tower behind the waterfall in the back, and the dark basement below the main castle, but it's probably best to avoid them for now, the basement especially—the monster ガルキマセラ lurks there and will likely kill you with ease. Even later on, they're nearly impossible to kill... by most methods, anyway. Though you could always flee. The tower, on the other hand, isn't nearly so bad, and may be worth visiting long enough to steal a few Mithril Swords from the Ice Soldiers, even if they also appear on the higher floors of the Worus Tower.


ウォルスの塔 Butz Lenna Galuf Faris Worus Tower

As might be expected of the tower housing the Water Crystal, there's quite a lot of water here. There are also two soldiers collapsed by the entrance.

ガルラが、とつぜんあばれだして
塔に入って来ました。
王もそれを追って…
それに見知らぬ戦士がひとり…
A Garula suddenly went out of
control and came into the tower.
The king went after it...
and there's an unfamiliar soldier...
ガルラは、けっして人をおそったり
しなかったのに…
Garulas never attack people,
though...

Incidentally, Garulas can be found in battles near the tower, and he's right. They literally do not ever attack.

The king is collapsed several floors up.

The Wyvern monsters around here (not to be confused with King Tycoon's wyvern, which uses a different term in Japanese) have Mithril Knives to steal.

ウォルス王「ガルラが上に…
      たのむ…
      クリスタルを
      守ってくれ…
King Worus: Garula, above...
 Please...
 protect the...
 Crystal...

In the Crystal room, a soldier in an unfamiliar uniform stands between a Garula and the Crystal.

戦士「あやつられているな!
   クリスタルをわらせる
   わけにはいかない!!
Soldier: You're being controlled!
 I can't let you break the Crystal!!

Incidentally, the player !Control command, gained later, will not work on a Garula. Something powerful is at work here...

He tries to fend it off, but is knocked out of the way, and doesn't get up. The Garula turns toward the party.

『来るぞっ!! "Here it comes!!"

The Garula is physically powerful and starts counterattacking after some damage, but that's about it. No variety here. It helps to use physically powerful classes and 'protect' to halve the damage you take. Maximizing damage per hit also helps, since it minimizes the counterattacks.

One useful tactic is combining the Knight's !Guard with the Monk's Counter. If you'd rather be cheap, equip someone with the Whip (you'll need to change to Normal) for a good chance of 'paralysis'. Another cheap tactic is to learn Frog Song from Elf Toads in the Worus Castle water tower and use that to influct 'toad' (this cripples its attack power), then cast Silence as needed to keep it from casting Toad to heal itself. Low-level players should note that the Garula is level 3, and use Goblin Punch with any characters at a matching level.

The Crystal looks odd after the battle.

レナ「クリスタルが!! Lenna: The Crystal!!

And it shatters as the Wind Crystal did.

レナ「まにあわなかった… Lenna: We didn't make it...
戦士「うっ… Soldier: Ugh...

The soldier gets up long enough to drag himself to the entrance, then collapses again, blocking the way out. Jerk.

戦士「うっ…
   …ガラフ様!!
Soldier: Ugh...
 ...lord Galuf!!
ガラフ「わしのことを?
戦士「ガラフ様…
   クリスタルを守れなかった…
   すみません…
Galuf: You know me?
Soldier: Lord Galuf...
 I couldn't protect the Crystal...
 I'm sorry...
ガラフ「教えてくれ!わしは
    いったい、だれなんじゃ?
戦士「火のクリスタルを…
   守って…うっ…
Galuf: Tell me! Who
 the heck am I?
Soldier: The Fire Crystal...
 protect it... ugh...

The Crystal shards shine as if to remind you they're there. Unlike in the Wind Temple, though, the shards stay where they are this time instead of conveniently converging on the party, and one is out of reach entirely.

ファリス「クリスタルのかけらが
     光ってる…
『おれたちに、力をかして
  くれるのか?
Faris: The Crystal shards
 are glowing...
"They're giving us
 their power?"

And as for the unidentified soldier...

死んでいる… He's dead...

As before, picking up the shards grants new jobs.

かけらに眠る勇者の心… The hearts of heroes sleep in the shards...

Each starts with the above line before identifying the job. These are, clockwise from top right:

魔法剣士 Butz - Sword Mage Lenna - Sword Mage Galuf - Sword Mage Faris - Sword Mage Sword Mage
時魔道士 Butz - Time Mage Lenna - Time Mage Galuf - Time Mage Faris - Time Mage Time Mage
バーサーカー Butz - Berserker Lenna - Berserker Galuf - Berserker Faris - Berserker Berserker
赤魔道士 Butz - Red Mage Lenna - Red Mage Galuf - Red Mage Faris - Red Mage Red Mage
召喚士 Butz - Summoner Lenna - Summoner Galuf - Summoner Faris - Summoner Summoner

After the party collects the five reachable shards, the tower starts shaking.

『どうしたんだ! "What's going on!"
ファリス「塔が、しずんでる? Faris: The tower's sinking?

A door opens in the back of the chamber, and with no other way out, the party exits that way. Soon after, the tower sinks into the ocean, and so does the end of the peninsula that it sits on. The meteorite is far enough away to remain on land, but the party gets dunked.

『うわァーーー!!!! "Whooooaaa!!!!"

Just then, a familiar sea monster approaches.

ファリス「シルドラ! Faris: Syldra!

Syldra takes Galuf and Butz, the closest two, into his mouth. They appear to be unconcious.

ファリス「シルドラ!
     生きてたのか!!
Faris: Syldra!
 You're alive!!

Lenna, apparently unconcious, begins to drift away, but Faris grabs her and swims into Syldra's mouth.

Somewhere nearby, Syldra arrives at a beach and spits the party out on land. Butz, Lenna, and Galuf collapse.

ファリス「シルドラ! Faris: Syldra!

Lenna gets up and walks to Faris's side.

レナ「シルドラ…
   最後の力で、私たちを
   たすけてくれたのね…
Lenna: Syldra...
 you saved us with the
 last of your strength...

Syldra lets out another cry. Butz and Galuf get up, but still seem disoriented.

ファリス「シルドラ!
     死んじゃやだー!
Faris: Syldra!
 Don't die—!

Syldra drifts out to sea... Faris starts to run out into the ocean, but Lenna holds her back.

レナ「シルドラ…
   ありがとう……
Lenna: Syldra...
 thank you...
ファリス「シル…ドラ…… Faris: Syl... dra...

After one last sad cry from Syldra, the four find themselves on the shore near the meteorite. The wyvern is nearby, having had the sense to move if it had been on the piece of land that sunk.
