VICKS: Think it's still alive?
WEDGE: Probably_
_judging from the urgency of our orders. <D24>

[caption #2]
VICKS: And this woman, this_sorcerer. Why's she here?<D24><EOP>
I heard she fried 50 of our Magitek Armored soldiers in under 3 minutes.<D24>

[caption #3]
WEDGE: Not to worry. The Slave Crown on her head robs her of all conscious
thought. She'll follow orders.<D24>

Long ago, the War of the Magi
reduced the world to a
scorched wasteland, and magic
simply ceased to exist. <E$FF><OP$12>

[caption #6]
1000 years have passed_ Iron,
gunpowder, and steam engines
have been rediscovered, and
high technology reigns_ <E$FF><OP$12>

[caption #7]
But there are some who
would enslave the world by
reviving the dread destructive
force known as [magic.] <E$FF><OP$12>

[caption #8]
Can it be that those
in power are on the verge of
repeating a senseless
and deadly mistake? <E$2A><OP$12>

OLD MAN: Yeah.
There's a girl I'd like you to meet.

OLD MAN: Imperial troops are pursuing her even as we speak.<EOP>
This town is no match for the Empire.<EOP>
Our independence can only be assured if we join forces with the Returners, an

Please, relax while you're here.
It's not in my blood to harm a lady.

<A0>: Look, why are you helping me?
Is it because of my_abilities?

[caption #73]
<A4>: I'll give you 3 reasons:
First of all, your beauty has captivated me!<EOP>

Second_I'm dying to know if I'm your type_

I guess your_abilities_would be a distant 3rd.

The Empire has smashed the 3 cities on the southern continent. Just a matter
of time 'til they come up here_

Gestahl has harnessed the power of magic.
Who can stop him now?!

[caption #88]
Though <A4> showers his attentions on women, most are too smart to pay any
attention to him.

His highness said he'd marry me when I get older!

Hey! Let us outta here!

[caption #99]
Relax, they're just blowing off steam. But I'm telling you, there's no sense
keeping us here!<EOP>
We're just small potatos compared to the real threat lurking out there! And King

I'm Lone Wolf, the pickpocket!

His name is <A5>. Oh, he looked so like his father!<EOP>
When he ran away, he was a sweet little child.
I wonder what he's like now?

CHANCELLOR: The whole business of the succession was so repugnant to

Just shut up and take it.

KEFKA: Phooey!
Emperor Gestahl's stupid orders!

refuge here_

<A4>: Hmm_this wouldn't have anything to do with this [witch] everyone's
been whispering about, would it?<EOP>
KEFKA: Lies!
She_merely stole something of minor value.
Is she here?

[caption #125]
<A4>: That's a tough one!

[caption #126]
<A4>: You see, there're more girls here than grains of sand out there. I can't
keep track of 'em all!<EOP>
KEFKA: I'd hate to be you if we find out you're lying_
Mwa, ha!

<A0>: You're <A1>, right? <A4> told me about you.
Is it true you're a thief?

[caption #133]

[caption #134]
<A1>: On the surface, <A4> pretends to support the Empire.<EOP>
The truth is, he's collaborating with the Returners, an organization opposed to
the Empire.<EOP>
I am his contact with that group_

They were using you!
Things are different now.

<A0>: I don't understand_
What should I do?

<A0>: [Magic]_

[caption #164]
<A4>: <A0> has magical powers. That Esper seemed to_react to her. Can
there be some connection?<EOP>
<A0>: I haven't the foggiest! It just seems natural to me that I have the use of
this power_

He seems vaguely familiar_
Wait a minute_!

[caption #192]
He owes allegiance to no one,
and will do anything for money.
He comes and goes like the wind_

[caption #193]
<A4>: That's <A3>_!
He'd slit his mama's throat for a nickel!

BANON: Carrier pigeons brought word that she wiped out 50 of the Empire's

BANON: Perhaps you've heard this story? Once, when people were pure and
there was a box they were told never to open. But one man went and opened it
He unleashed all the evils of the world: envy_ <D>greed_ <D>pride_
<D>violence_ <D>control_<EOP>
All that was left in the box was a single ray of light: Hope.

BANON: What're we going to do?<EOP>
<A4>: We'll escape down the Lete River, and make our way to Narshe. I want
to see that Esper for myself_<EOP>
BANON: Right. There's a raft by the back entrance.
It's a gamble, but we're fresh out of options_

[caption #331]
<A4>: You're in danger here. Come with us to Narshe.<EOP>
You'll probably even gain some understanding of your own abilities_

BANON: We all know that the Empire is using Magitek power in battle. The point
is, how has the Emperor created it?

[caption #337]
<A4>: I had <A1> look into the rumor that the Empire is forcing the world's
finest scholars to study Espers.

[caption #338]
<A1>: All the trouble in Narshe is over an Esper, too_

[caption #339]
BANON: Right_

[caption #340]
<A0>: You mean there's some connection between Espers and Magitek?
BANON: I can only recall one thing linking Espers with Magitek power_

[caption #341]
<A4>: You don't mean_<EOP>
BANON: Indeed!
The ancient War of the Magi_

[caption #342]
[It can't be!]

[caption #343]
<A1>: My Grandma used to tell me stories about magical machines_
Could they have been true?

[caption #344]
<A4>: Could that ancient tragedy be playing out once again_<EOP>
BANON: It's just speculation_<EOP>
But historical studies have provided a number of conflicting and frightening
According to one theory, humans and machines were imbued with powers
drained from Espers_

[caption #345]
<A0>: That could explain Magitek power_

[caption #346]
<A4>: We can only fight Magitek enemies with Magitek weapons_

[caption #347]
BANON: It's risky, but if we have <A0>_speak with that Esper, it might just
wake up_<EOP>
<A4>: I wonder if that's wise_?

BANON: Who can say?

we need <A0>'s help.

<A9>: Phew_
The Empire's made me a rich man.

[caption #1280]
<A6>: Stop thinking of yourself. Many towns and villages have been smashed
by the Empire.

[caption #1281]
<A1>: The Empire's also totally rotten! It's using magic to enslave the world.

[caption #1282]
<A4>: The Empire and my realm were allies_
until recently.

We'll decide with a coin toss.<EOP>
If it's heads, you'll help us. If it's tails, I'll go with you.
Well, Mr. Gambler_?

<A9>: Oho! Fine!
I accept!

The Empire's becoming paranoid!

You okay, Maduin?

You'd better do away with it. Humans and Espers are incompatible_

You're the Gate Keeper, Maduin?

Everyone here's feeling uneasy.

[caption #1432]
You just want to peer into the human realm beyond the north gate, eh, Maduin?

[caption #1433]
Why'd you bring that thing here?

Strong winds_
Be careful, Maduin.

You must use caution while in our world_

[Now_what was a monster doing in that picture?!]<EOP>
OWZER: It all started when I bought a stone at the Auction House.<EOP>
I took one look at it and suddenly felt I needed a portrait of Starlet.<EOP>
I asked several artists, but none could muster enough skill.<EOP>
It was then that I heard about <A8>'s amazing ability.
I brought her here, and put her to work.<EOP>
But while she was painting, that thing came along_ <D>
It must have been enticed here by that stone.

[caption #2720]
Where is the stone_?<EOP>
OWZER: The stone? <D>
Over on that bookshelf.
