    Hm, perhaps you should use Wyrmlord's avatar for the Prima Doll in conversations? :)

    Rue's route, Part XIII: The Call of [Relic]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Look, look! I'm fully recharged now! I feel great!
    [​IMG] Great news, guys. I'm almost finished with the amulet.
    [​IMG] That's great! It won't be long before we break the seal.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That's what I was created for: to open the door to the [relic].
    [​IMG] We're counting on you.
    [​IMG] Hey, Rue, what do the lake ruins look like? I kind of wanna see them.
    [​IMG] The ruins are in the middle of a lake, so we can't get there now.
    [​IMG] No, really?
    [​IMG] I'll get a boat when you're ready. Can you wait till then?

    [​IMG]

    :hmmm:
    Suspicious. Perhaps lightbane and spekkio were onto something, we should be more careful.

    [​IMG] Should I get the boat now, Doctor?
    [​IMG] You don't need to get a boat if you just want to see the lake ruins.
    [​IMG] Really? Where can you see them from?
    [​IMG] Go to the lakeside. You can get a clear view from there.
    [​IMG] Come on, Rue! Let's go to the lakeside!
    [​IMG] I don't care, but...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What if something happens?
    [​IMG] He'll be fine with you.

    Yeah, what can possibly go wrong?

    [​IMG] Rue, come on.
    [​IMG] Go on. You need a little break for a change.
    [​IMG] Ok. Let's go, Prima Doll.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] This is the first time you've been outside of town, huh?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It smells good. It's so warm and comfortable out here.
    [​IMG] It's because of the sun.
    [​IMG] Oh yeah... I've been trapped inside that cold box all this time. I never knew the outside.
    [​IMG] ......
    [​IMG] Rue, let's race!
    [​IMG] What?

    What sort of hideous trap is that?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] ...Ok. Let's do it.
    [​IMG] Don't cheat, ok? On your mark! Get set!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You're fast, too. You were right by me.
    [​IMG] You think so? That was fun! I've never run like that before. Hey, there are the lake ruins... That's where the [relic] is, right?
    [​IMG] Yeah. The Aeon Valen's [relic] is in there somewhere. (Almost Claire, almost...)
    [​IMG] Rue? You ok? You look sad.
    [​IMG] I'm fine.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I've seen that sad look on your face before. It seems like you're in a lot of pain, but you try so hard to hold it in.
    [​IMG] ......
    [​IMG] Aeon's [relic]... I was born... I was created to unlock the seal on the [relic]. That's it... That's my only duty in life.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Rue... Where should I go after that? I'm just a tool, a key to open the door to the [relic]. After you get the [relic], I'll be of no use, and I'll... I'll be nothing...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I am...
    [​IMG] Listen to me... You're forgetting something very important. You're forgetting that you're alive. We often take it for granted, but just being alive is a wonderful thing. As long as you're alive, there's always a chance... There's always hope. I've got a great idea. After this is over, let's try to find something fun that we can do.
    [​IMG] Rue... You're so boring...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thanks, Rue.

    Something must've put Prima Doll on alert and he decided not to act just yet. I'll be keeping my eye on him...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hey. Did you get to see the ruins?
    [​IMG] Yeah! They were neat! I raced Rue in the forest, too!
    [​IMG] Sounds like you had fun.
    [​IMG] Yeah! It was really fun.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Oh yeah! I have a little present for you. Here you go.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Is that-
    [​IMG] It's the amulet!
    [​IMG] I just finished it. Ok, try it on.
    [​IMG] This is weird... It's really refreshing. Wow, I feel great! Oh yeah! It feels like the sun. I feel so comfortable.
    [​IMG] I'm glad to see you happy. Looks like it worked. Well, Rue, this is it. We're finally ready to break the seal on the [relic].
    [​IMG] Yes!
    [​IMG] I'll do my best, guys!
    [​IMG] That's the spirit! Ok, let's go to the lake ruins!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Of course! Why wait!? Come on!
    [​IMG] Whoa, you're drunk as hell!
    [​IMG] What are you talking about?

    Klaus falls on the floor.

    [​IMG] Ouch.
    [​IMG] You ok, Doctor?
    [​IMG] What's wrong!?
    [​IMG] ...

    Later...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] She's right. He stayed up all night to finish the amulet.
    [​IMG] I think you need to rest, Doctor.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Please, Dad! You have to rest!
    [​IMG] I can't...
    [​IMG] Mom's really gonna worry if you go now.
    [​IMG] I can't believe this. I've waited so long to get the [relic].
    [​IMG] Doctor, we don't have to go now. While you rest, I can get things ready.
    [​IMG] What are we gonna do?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Why not? We just went to the lakeside. Oh yeah! You talked about this earlier.
    [​IMG] What? What are you talking about?
    [​IMG] We need a boat to get to the lake ruins.
    [​IMG] Ohh, that's right. The ruins are in the middle of the lake.
    [​IMG] I'm gonna go and try to borrow a boat. Please rest until I get back.
    [​IMG] Thank you, Rue.
    [​IMG] Come on, Dad. You have to rest up for that boat ride.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And ask we did.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I came here to ask you for a favor.
    [​IMG] Oh boy... Alright, what's on your mind?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Well, you came to the right place. I'm the man that can get you there. My ACV's the best
    ride around.

    [​IMG]

    The words are a ragged, dead chorus, as if being spoken by five, ten, twenty, a hundred voices - old, young, female, male, desperate, calm, hysterical...

    [​IMG] Rue, are you all right? I thought I'd lost you for a moment... You want my help, you gotta pay up front. You know what I want, don't ya?
    [​IMG] ...No, I don't.
    [​IMG] Think.
    [​IMG] ...I remember now. Is this what you're talking about?

    Rue takes a battle stance.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That's what I'm talking about! Tell you what. Just this once, I'll fight you free of charge.
    [​IMG] So, if I win-
    [​IMG] Yeah! Yo, who do you think I am? Rod the Blade Star never goes back on his word. You win, I help. It's as simple as that. So, no need to hold back, alright?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] My tooth is all jiggly now. Gotta stay away from meat for a while.
    [​IMG] Sorry about that... I guess I lost control.
    [​IMG] Hey, no prob. I told you to bring it on, and you did. I was prepared for some hits. Alright, you win. I'll take you to them ruins, as promised.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That's great! I guess you're ready then. Are you going to leave now?
    [​IMG] Yes.
    [​IMG] Good... I hope everything goes well. I'll stay here and wait for the good news.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] My baby's ready to go!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Wow...
    [​IMG] I know. Isn't she a beauty?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] The love of my life. The Pulsar-inferno Typhoon Omega! The greatest ride in the world. Nothing can top this baby's speed.
    [​IMG] Where did you get this?
    [​IMG] I can't tell you that. It's top secret.
    [​IMG] Wow! This is so cool! Rue, we get to ride in this thing!?
    [​IMG] Yeah.
    [​IMG] Alright! I love boat rides.
    [​IMG] It's not a boat! Don't EVER call my baby a boat! It's the Pulsar-inferno Typhoon Omega.
    [​IMG] Rue, come on! Let's get on the boat.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Ok, get in.
    [​IMG] What is this noise?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] There are 5 cannon orbs that juice up the driver to thrust my baby. It's the sweetest sound in the world. We're at maximum power. Ok! You boys ready!?
    [​IMG] Go!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Whoa! Nearly lost my hat...
    [​IMG] This baby's dynamite, so hold on tight!
    [​IMG] Go baby, go! Pulsar-inferno Typh- Oww!! I bit my tongue...oy.
    [​IMG] Ha-ha-ha. My baby's so intense, you can't even say her name! Alright, listen: Pulsar-inferno Typh-Agghhh!
    [​IMG] ...Rod? You ok?
    [​IMG] ... I'm fine.
    [​IMG] Hey! You bit your tongue, too! Haa-haa.
    [​IMG] Hey, Rue! Where's this channel that leads to the lake?
    [​IMG] It should be coming up soon.
    [​IMG] Ok! Time to speed up!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] No prob. I'll come back to pick you guys up before lights-out.
    [​IMG] Bye, Rod!
    [​IMG] Later, boy.
    [​IMG] Rue!
    [​IMG] Whatever it is you're up to, just do it all the way, alright? With heart!
    [​IMG] ... Ok, Prima Doll. Let's go get the [relic]!

    [​IMG]

    I don't like the sound of this...

    [​IMG] (Claire, this is it... Finally, I can get you back.)
    [​IMG] What's wrong, Rue? Come on, let's go.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] This is weird...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I know exactly what to do here, too. It's amazing. Everything I need to know is coming back so naturally.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Valen R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.
    [​IMG] That's right. Rue, how come you know?
    [​IMG] ......I don't know. It just came naturally...
    [​IMG] That's so weird. Oh well. Let's begin!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Who are you!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] East Heaven Kingdom... The kingdom of sorcery.
    [​IMG] Indeed. For the last 700 years, our kingdom has protected this [relic]. It is our duty to see that this [relic] does not fall into the wrong hands.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Ordinary men are not permitted to handle them. They might bring about world destruction. The most powerful [relic] created by the great Aeon Valen is sealed here. You have come to break the seal, no!? Be gone immediately! I absolutely forbid it!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You won't let us have the [relic]? Is that what you're saying?
    [​IMG] It is forbidden! You must leave at once!
    [​IMG] NO! I need the [relic], no matter what. I've searched for so long and finally found it. I don't care what you say! I'm taking it!
    [​IMG] Who do you think you are!? Do you honestly believe that you can handle the power of the [relic]!?
    [​IMG] I WILL! To save Claire, I will!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'll use the power of my [relic] and see if you are worthy of Valen's.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] The power of the Book of Cosmos! East Heaven's greatest Aeon [relic]! Kneel before its power!
    [​IMG] Rue!!!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You must give up, or you'll die!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Aaaaagh!!! Aaagh! CLAIRE!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] He's countering the power of the [relic].

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Sheez! It's getting all complicated now! What are we gonna do!?
    [​IMG] Maya... That snake! Always butting into my affairs!
    [​IMG] You say something?
    [​IMG] Don't worry about it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You have another one in mind?
    [​IMG] Of course. Just leave it all to me. Duke. Get the Hexagon ready.
    [​IMG] Alright. Wait.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] He beat the Book of Cosmos...

    [​IMG]

    Doll Master hurls a spell at Rue.

    [​IMG] Watch yourself, Doll Master!
    [​IMG] Yes, Your Highness. Please, rest assured, I won't kill him.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You still intend to fight...? Admirable, but unwise.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] To you born of dew, I command. Accept your destiny and seal your powers!
    [​IMG] I...can't move...!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Even your powers cannot dispel it.
    [​IMG] !?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Quite impressive. It may prove useful.
    [​IMG] R-Run... Run, Prima!
    [​IMG] Hey! Put me down!
    [​IMG] The time has come... Prima Doll, open the seal to the [relic].
    [​IMG] No!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What?
    [​IMG] I won't do it. I'd rather... Rue... Thanks, Rue. It was short, but I had a lot of fun. Please don't die. ...Goodbye.
    [​IMG] Initiating shutdown sequence.
    [​IMG] Prima...
    [​IMG] Worthless piece of junk.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What is that!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Mint...!? Belle!?
    [​IMG] No time to talk!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Ok!

    Belle struck Mint in the process.

    [​IMG] Ungghhh!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Says who!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You almost got me killed!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Stop babbling! Let's get outta here!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Stop jerkin' around!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Your Highness. Your Highness!
    [​IMG] Huh!? Yes, what is it?
    [​IMG] Shall we pursue them?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] We must secure the [relic] first. I will use the Book of Cosmos.
    [​IMG] Yes, Your Highness.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    But Rue's anime powers are overflowing!!

    Too bad the villains had their own Cutscene Superpower TM.

    Soo, she creates a dungeon (more exactly, a tower) on top of another dungeon?

    Rue's route, Part XIV: Carrot on a Stick

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Oh gosh... I'm so tired.
    [​IMG] Mint, can you tell me what's going on?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Oh, you mean about Belle and Duke?
    [​IMG] Yeah.
    [​IMG] Ok, I'll tell you about it over dinner. Belle and Duke are waiting for me at the tavern. I'm gonna go ahead, ok?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I guess you're fine, since you can walk. Good for you.
    [​IMG] Have a seat. I'll tell you what you want to know. Hmm, where should I start...?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I wanna ask Rue something. I saw you fighting at the lake ruins. Gotta admit, I was surprised. I didn't think you were that tough. So I'm curious. Why are you fighting so hard? Why are you so set on getting the [relic]? You wanna tell us?

    [​IMG]

    Later...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I'll be damned... That's quite a past you're carrying. You sure are strong, Rue.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Yeah. Did you hear that, Mint? Mint's been doing nothing but trying to double-cross you.
    [​IMG] What...!? Really?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] She said if we give back the tiara, she'd share the [relic] with us. So we gave it back and decided to go along with it.
    [​IMG] We were layin' low until the Prima Doll was complete.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You didn't know we were there, huh? We were waiting for that doll to break the seal.
    [​IMG] After the seal was gone, the rest would be easy. We just take the [relic] and disappear.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Mint planned the whole thing.
    [​IMG] Mint...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hey, wait a minute! Actually, you guys should be thanking me. If I didn't lead the way today, you'd all probably be dead.
    [​IMG] Yeah, right! Don't try to change the subject!
    [​IMG] ...
    [​IMG] What are we gonna do, Milady? That lady Maya is probably guarding the lake ruins.
    [​IMG] I haven't thought about it yet. Ah, I'm too tired to think...! I need to get some rest. Let's go.
    [​IMG] Alright.

    [​IMG]

    We need to rest too.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Morning exercises!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes fighting Rod gets a little annoying, because Johnny Wolf (his best pal) keeps getting in the way.

    [​IMG]

    We scout the area near the newly raised tower.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] How am I supposed to get to the ruins now? Prima...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] A mere tool petrifying itself to protect the [relic] was quite surprising.
    [​IMG] It testifies to the danger of bringing the [relic] back to this world.
    [​IMG] In that case, I would suggest this:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What do you mean?
    [​IMG] I mean, we should unlock the seal to the [relic]. Why take the risk of it falling into the wrong hands? It would be safer in our hands. We can use the Prima Doll to unlock the seal. The doll's petrification can be removed with the Book of Cosmos. What do you think, Your Highness?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Our duty is to prevent the [relic] from ever returning to this world!
    [​IMG] But Your Highness-
    [​IMG] Enough. We must never come in contact with Valen's [relic]! Do I make myself clear?
    [​IMG] ...Yes, Your Highness.
    [​IMG] Doll Master, listen well. Excessive power only leads to destruction. Do not make that mistake.

    Maya goes away.

    [​IMG] What now, my lord?
    [​IMG] Hmm...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Back to town...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Duke, what are you doing here?
    [​IMG] Well, we can't do anything with that tower blocking everything.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] He came here for a little one on one. It was a good fight.
    [​IMG] I got busted up. Rod is a monster! :codexisfor:
    [​IMG] Nah, you did good. It was pretty close. Heck, if we go again, you might win.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Damn, I thought I'd have a chance with my Starlight Duke, y'know?
    [​IMG] What...!? You dressed up as a star again?
    [​IMG] Yeah!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] My hits hardly did any damage. What'd I do? Hit you like 300 times...? Duke! That costume's one heckuvan armor. Let me try it on sometime. I think I might be able to use it for my next weapon.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Sometimes, you even gotta make a fool of yourself to come up with a weapon.
    [​IMG] Oh yeah... I went by the lake a while ago to check things out.
    [​IMG] I went there too.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That place is dead. They haven't made a move since that tower came up.
    [​IMG] ......
    [​IMG] I wouldn't worry about it. Don't do anything stupid, or you'll just play into their hands. Just sit back and wait for their next move.
    [​IMG] Yeah, I guess so... I'm gonna get some rest now. Milady's gonna kill me if I don't get back soon. See you, Rue!
    [​IMG] Good night.
    [​IMG] You should get going, too. Get a good night's rest and re- energize. My guess is, they'll make a bid move real soon. You're definitely gonna need all your energy then.
    [​IMG] ......
    [​IMG] Sometimes, you gotta stop running. For now, just bear down and keep your eyes open.
    [​IMG] Ok.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Who's there...!? Must be my imagination.
    [​IMG] Rue!
    [​IMG] !!! It's coming from outside!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Nobody here.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You're--

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Get out of my way!
    [​IMG] ...As you wish.
    [​IMG] Aaaah!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] ...Put her down!!! Right now!
    [​IMG] Can you match my powers?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Trying to hit him in the face doesn't accomplish much.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's why we backstab him.

    :yeah:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Butthurt detected :smug:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Your powers are extraordinary. My Master will be most pleased.
    [​IMG] Let her go! Come on!
    [​IMG] If you wish to save her, come to the tower by the lake. My Master is expecting you. Good evening.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Before breaking into the tower we buy new equipment and fight with Rod.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Off we go!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Baited like the dumb fish that you are.
    [​IMG] Trap Master! You're one of them!
    [​IMG] No duh! You're scared now, huh? Where do you think you're goin'!? What, you think you can just walk outta here!? Dumb... Very, very dumb!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Alright, my job is done. I'm outta here. Don't even think about escaping!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You got no choice but up.

    :decline:

    So we start our journey to the top of the tower.

    [​IMG]

    On our way to the top we exterminate some nefarious looking birds...

    [​IMG]

    Pumpkins...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And witches.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :hmmm:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There is still no way to equip any of those legendary items...

    [​IMG]

    Whew, all the stairs are behind now. But what is this I see...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Stay tuned.

    Rue's route, Part XV: Aeoncide

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I still can't believe it... I've missed you so much. Come on. Let's go home. !!!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Claire, what's wrong? Why are you laughing!?
    [​IMG] Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha. Oh, Rue, Rue, Rue... Just look at you. Crying like a baby, 'Claire! Claire!'

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Who are you!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thank you, Rue. I had so much fun pulling your leg.
    [​IMG] Wh... Why?
    [​IMG] Why else? To lure you here. It worked like a charm. You're so full of passion. Please don't hold a grudge, ok? I have to admit, I became very envious of Claire. To be cherished so much that you'd risk your life for her... She must've been a very special lady.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Ohh, poor baby. You know, yet you can't do it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You came here desperately hoping that she had actually come back to life. Now your hope has been shattered. Claire is dead, and that's the fact.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Yes... I can sense it. I feel your rage piercing into my bones. But that's not enough. There is much greater power resting in you!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I will help you bring it out. DO YOU REMEMBER THIS!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] ...He's dead. You're dead!!! DEAD!!!
    [​IMG] Rage has awakened you, just like 3 years ago.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Uh-oh, HP is getting low.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, quickload time... Or is it?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Aagh...
    [​IMG] It's time for the final step.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Good of you to come, Your Highness. I was just about to call you from your chambers.
    [​IMG] What just happened here!? Answer me at once!
    [​IMG] Very well...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] !?
    [​IMG] Psycho Master, get the Book!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What do you think you're doing!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You're- Aagh!?
    [​IMG] My goodness. Doll Master showed you no mercy. Try to stay still. Vita, Mortis, Careo!
    [​IMG] ...Thank you.
    [​IMG] I must say I'm surprised. You're associated with my sister, yes? I figured you would be a hopeless ruffian, just like her.
    [​IMG] (Her sister...?)
    [​IMG] ... I still can't believe it. The Book of Cosmos has been dismantled... The Book is an Aeon [relic]. Doll Master is a powerful magician, but he couldn't have done this. It's impossible. The Book must have been dismantled by something else. Rue, maybe it was you. There's incredible power resting within you.
    [​IMG] ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It doesn't look like an ordinary stone. I believe it holds tremendous powers.
    [​IMG] ...... I don't know anything about this stone. Actually... I don't know who I am... I don't know anything about myself.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Atenacius?
    [​IMG] He's the Aeon who created the Book of Cosmos. I'm sure he'll be able to answer all your questions.
    [​IMG] I thought Aeons were all dead.
    [​IMG] You're right. Atenacius died a few hundred years ago. But just before his death, Atenacius sealed his spirit in the Book of Cosmos. To this day, he still resides here. But only in spirit.
    [​IMG] Do you really think he would know anything about me?
    [​IMG] Atenacius is a powerful Aeon. There is nothing that he doesn't know. In any case, we must see him. Without his help, we won't be able to escape from this world.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That's Atenacius...?
    [​IMG] Yes. As you can see, Atenacius has merged with the Book of Cosmos.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] MY GreatesT CreatioN HaS BeeN DestroyeD IN ThE BlinK OF AN EyE. WhaT PoweR IN ThiS WorlD IS CapablE OF SucH A FeaT?
    [​IMG] I'm not sure, but I believe the stone on this man's forehead caused this. This chaos started when that glowing stone began to shine brilliantly.
    [​IMG] WhaT!!!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] YoU! ThaT StonE...! YeS! ThaT StonE HaS ThE PoweR TO DestroY MY BooK!

    [​IMG] Atenacius, stop this at once!
    [​IMG] It's too late!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Crazy old virgin keeps tossing magic missiles at us, but that only delays the inevitable.

    When suddenly...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hmph, what a joke.
    [​IMG] NoooO!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Now, your powers will be mine!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Have you gone mad!? You fool! What have you done!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I have absorbed Atenacius's powers. Your magic is useless against me now.
    [​IMG] ...That explains why you destroyed the Book.
    [​IMG] Yes. It was the only way I could take his powers. With Rue's help of course...
    [​IMG] But why!? What is the reason behind all this!? Tell me at once!
    [​IMG] As you wish.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] We were brought to this world for one reason alone. Our fate was determined long ago.
    [​IMG] ......

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] His powers rivaled those of the gods. This Aeon made an incredible [relic]. That [relic] embodies all the forces in the universe. It is the purest form of crystal.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] With the ability to control time and all of nature's creations, it is the ultimate power in this universe.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] In essence, it is a microcosm of our universe. To inherit Dewprism is to inherit the universe.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] But the incalculable power of the [relic] brought about his downfall. The other Aeons were startled by Valen's creation and saw their peer as a major threat. Eventually, they became mad from fear and envy, and attacked him

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] His body was destroyed... but not his spirit. Valen sealed himself in another dimension. And he has taken the Dewprism with him. Valen bides his time in an impregnable dimension. All the while, his enemies age and die. Despite all their powers, Aeons are not immortal. With every passing moment, his enemies dwindle.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I have just destroyed Valen's last enemy, Atenacius.
    [​IMG] Wait! Does that mean Valen is going to be resurrected!?
    [​IMG] ...Not yet.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It can't be destroyed from the outside or inside. And Valen himself can't remove the seal to escape. At this point, Valen and his Dewprism, will be confined in the dimension forever.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Atenacius!?
    [​IMG] ThaT FooL IS ImprisoneD

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What!?
    [​IMG] Dolls of Valen!?
    [​IMG] AlaS...! IF OnlY ThE DollS OF ValeN DiD NoT ExisT, HE CoulD NoT ReturN!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What a pitiful sight. You should've died long ago with your peers, Atenacius.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You're nothing compared to Valen. HAHAHAHAHAA!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Nothing can stop Valen's resurrection now. The time has finally come for the Dolls of Valen to fulfill their duty.
    [​IMG] What!? What are you talking about, daemon-spawn!?
    [​IMG] Daemon-spawn? One so hopelessly ignorant of his origins should not be so quick to insult another's parentage, brother.
    [​IMG] We are not brothers, heretic.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] They were created for the sole purpose of one day breaking the seal and resurrecting him.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] The stone on your forehead... It is a life stone, a fragment of the Dewprism. It holds powers beyond this world. It is what destroyed the Books of Cosmos.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You have the power to free him. You and your life stone. It is your duty.
    [​IMG] My duty...
    [​IMG] Yes... Our duty... We exist for Valen. It is our duty to bring him back to this world. The time has come to resurrect our sovereign.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You pile heresy upon heresy! I don't care what you say! I'm not Valen's doll!
    [​IMG] Of course... You have completely lost your memory, as I have lost my powers.
    [​IMG] What are you talking about?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] ...That stone... How...?
    [​IMG] We're the same, Rue.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You awakened 5 years ago... I awakened 100 years ago. Unlike you, I retained everything. I remembered my duty as Valen's creation. Unfortunately, I am Valen's failed creation. Look at my stone. My life stone is dead. It has no power... I cannot fulfill our duty alone.
    [​IMG] That's why you came after me?
    [​IMG] Yes. 3 years ago, that night...
    [​IMG] WHY!? Why did you kill Claire!? You only wanted me! You killed her for no reason!
    [​IMG] That was an accident.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You bastard!
    [​IMG] Calm down. After we fulfill our duty, I'll bring that woman back to life. Once Valen's is resurrected, we can use the power of the Dewprism to revive her. That will solve everything. Once she comes back to life, you and I will no longer be enemies.
    [​IMG] It doesn't matter! I'll NEVER forgive you! You think everything's gonna be fine if you just bring her back!? You're just toying with her life!
    [​IMG] Like I told you, you are my brother. I have no intention of fighting you. Rue, I have waited for you for so long. Now, let us fulfill our duty, together.
    [​IMG] I'm not your brother! I don't need your help! I'm gonna bring Claire back on my own. That's my only duty.
    [​IMG] So...you have no intention of joining me?
    [​IMG] Never! You're not my brother! You're just a monster!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What are you talking about!? You said you don't have the power!
    [​IMG] I have absorbed Atenacius's powers. With his powers, I'll be able to revive Prima Doll. That doll can remove the seal at the lake ruins and open the path to Valen's fortress where he rests.
    [​IMG] Hey!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] He must be heading to the lake ruins. The only thing on that traitor's mind is Valen's [relic]...Dewprism. If Doll Master resurrects Valen... It'll be the end of the world.
    [​IMG] Can't you stop him with the Book of Cosmos?
    [​IMG] I'm afraid not... With Atenacius gone, the Book has lost its power. I'm completely helpless now...
    [​IMG] !?
    [​IMG] What's going on!?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] The long awaited return of Valen and the Dewprism.
    [​IMG] Valen's fortress... I must go there at once.
    [​IMG] It will be an honor to accompany you. Your 100 year wait is finally over. ... I trust you will take care of everything.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] We'll cover things down here.
    [​IMG] My lord... I wish I could've accompanied you to the end.
    [​IMG] You two have served me well. I thank you both.
    [​IMG] No. We owe you everything, my lord. Our lives would have ended in meaningless battles without you. You have even granted us names. You have freed us from our dismal fate.
    [​IMG] ...... Kirielle, I'm counting on you.
    [​IMG] I pray we will meet again, my lord.
    [​IMG] Narcius, take care of yourself.
    [​IMG] Hey, I ain't gonna die!
    [​IMG] Of course... Karwyn, let's go.
    [​IMG] Yes, my lord.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] ...... Farewell.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I have to go.
    [​IMG] What?
    [​IMG] I have to go there. Dewprism... It's the only way to save Claire.
    [​IMG] You still insist on getting the Dewprism!? The power that can destroy the world!?
    [​IMG] I know...but I have to. When Doll Master used me to destroy your book, I was a helpless puppet. I can't believe we're both Dolls of Valen. And he's far more powerful than I am... But I can't give up! I have to defeat him, no matter what! He killed Claire... I'll never be at peace until he's dead. ...... I don't know anymore. I don't know what to do or what to believe... I might end up destroying the world.
    [​IMG] Rue...
    [​IMG] I'm still sure of one thing. When Claire was killed, I promised I would bring her back. I know I'm just a doll. My feelings probably aren't real. But that promise I made was real. I know it was... I have to get to Valen's fortress somehow.

    I smell butthurt here. At least he did not start rambling about recessive genes.

    What can change the nature of a doll? He's rather quick to accept he's not human. A main character in a jrpg that DOES NOT suffer from angst attacks? Unbelievable.

    Well, actually he knew it from the beginning, weren't you paying attention?
    :hmmm:

    As will probably be shown in one of the future updates, you can initiate some sort of psychiatrist sessions with various NPCs, if you want to.

    Heh, still butthurt about Psychonauts, I see. :P

    Sorry, Blackie, I don't really care about art style as long as the game is fun. I only hate Psychonauts's (= Tim Burton's) "artstyle" because of the kind of audience it attracts. Think a bunch of teenage 1eyedkings. It's thanks to those horrible creatures that anything else is better to me.
