An Archer Dreams of Adventure
At Sutera’s hometown, our heroes met Aster, a young woman who longed for the outside world. Due to the customs of her village, Aster had given up on leaving her island. However, the Mayor of the village sympathized with Aster’s feelings, and on his good graces she was able to travel with (Captain) and company.
(Captain) and company sent Sutera, an archer they had encountered on their journey, to her faraway hometown.
A girl name Aster came from the village to greet Sutera by the docked Grandcypher.
Hereafter she would receive training to become a guardian. Her eyes sparkled as she stood before the airship.
Vyrn: Huh? What happened, Aster? Why the blank face?
Aster: Whoa! Sorry about that! I was enraptured by that airship!
Vyrn: Mmm? You like airships?
Aster: Um, this island... Cizierma had little interaction with faraway islands, and airships almost never visited there.
Vyrn: I see... So that’s why the berth has become so desolate.
Aster: And though I am embarrassed to admit it, that was the first time I had seen an airship, and it was pretty moving for me...
Aster: This airship soars through the skies and goes to other islands, doesn’t it... Amazing!
Aster: Ah! I-I'm sorry. Long journeys are exhausting! I will guide you to the village!
Lyria: Hey, Aster. If it’s all right with you, I will give you a tour inside the Grandcypher!
Vyrn: Yeah. This is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. Go with her, Aster.
Aster: Um, um... Is it okay, (Captain)?
Choose: Of course
- Of course
- It might be boring
Aster: Hahaha! Thank you! I’ll take care to avoid committing any blunders!
Vyrn: Haha. Don’t be so tense, Aster!Choose: It might be boring
Aster: No! I’m not tense! I always wanted to board an airship!
Lyria: I see... Then everything has worked out great for you!Continue 1
Lyria: Haha, this is the entrance. Let’s go, Aster!
Aster: Don’t get in the way!
Aster: Your ornaments are dazzling, and the skills you use are amazing... And that’s one majestic airship.
Aster: The power unit is exceptionally fine tuned. I can tell you take great care in your use of it. Impressive!
Lyria: Hehe! I’m sure that the Grandcypher is pleased to be praised like that!
Aster: Going out of your way to show me the power unit and cargo hold of the airship... Maybe I should thank you somehow...
Vyrn: I don’t care! Whatever the case, it’s unusual for someone to want to see those things!
Aster: Eh? What? Truly? There were aspects that were different from what I saw in books, it was very interesting...
Aster: Being able to actually see the airship that is the crystallization of the skills of the outside world... Of course I think it’s amazing.
Aster: The village elders frown upon knowledge and skills from outside the island, but I think they could be of use to the village...
Aster: Whoa! I’m sorry, I got lost in my own thoughts!
Lyria: It’s fine, I don’t mind! Still, you were contemplating difficult things, aren’t you Aster.
Aster: I had a weak body for some time after I was born... Therefore, I thought that I could prove myself useful to the village by means of knowledge.
Aster: I studied and studied and studied, hoping that I could continue with my education outside the island and become able to help other people.
Lyria: I see...! You will definitely achieve that dream, Aster!
Aster: Thank you, Lyria! I’ll do my best!
Aster: Ah! Sorry for overstaying my welcome. I will guide you to the village!
The party was guided by Aster to the village. There the mayor requested that they exterminate some monsters.
(Captain) and company carried out that request safely, and headed back to give their report to the Mayor.
Mayor: Thank you. Due to the power of the “The Forbidding One” it is easy for monsters to swarm on this island... You saved the day.
Vyrn: Hehe. It was a piece of cake!
Mayor: You have shown that you were not exaggerating your abilities in the slightest. Thus I have another request for you.
Lyria: We’re happy to help! Monster hunting again?
Mayor: No, not that. Aster! Get in here.
Aster: O-okay! Excuse me! What do you need?
Mayor: The fact of the matter is, I would like for you to allow Aster here to accompany you on your journey.
Mayor: This girl wishes to learn about the world outside this island. I’d like to make her wish come true.
Aster: Huh? Uh... Mister Mayor. The elders are opposed to that...
Mayor: The elderly are not our future. I myself am already an old man. Tomorrow belongs to the young.
Mayor: The old only get in the way when they try to lead the young.
Aster: Yes... But...
Choose: Do you want to stay in the village?
- Do you want to stay in the village?
- Come with us
Aster: I love my village. The elders are a cranky bunch... But they only want what’s best for me.
Aster: Therefore, I would like to learn about myriad things and put them to use for my village’s sake.
Aster: I want to see what it’s like outside the island!Choose: Come with us
Aster: Is that okay? But won’t I get in the way, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Aster! Don’t fret so much about others! Just tell us what YOU want to do!
Aster: What do I want to do?
Aster: I... I want to see what it’s like outside the island!Continue 2
Lyria: Let's go! Let’s adventure together in our airship!
Aster: ...! Yeah! I look forward to journeying with you!
Aster: I will study and study and study... I will do my best for not only my village but also (Captain) and friends!
Thus it was decided that Aster would join (Captain) and friends on their journey.
What would Aster learn from this world that is overflowing with surprise? Her adventure had just begun.

And Today We Rest!
(Captain)'s party has been keeping busy with the numerous requests they receive every day. Following Aster's suggestion, they decide to take a day off. Excited for a day off, Aster is eager to make it count. That night, the party notices Aster going into the woods alone, and decide to join her for a late stroll.
(Captain)'s party has been completing daily requests from the Knickknack Shack.
Sierokarte: Your package has been received! Thank you very much!
Aster: Thank you for your hard work, (Captain)! That job was the last one for now.
Aster: Um... you've all been working every day lately... why don't we take a day off in the airship?
Lyria: Good idea, (Captain) has been working so hard!
Sierokarte: Hehehe, (Captain). It's also important to rest when you can.
With Sierokarte's backing, (Captain)'s party decided to take the day off.
Aster: *Pant, pant*...
Lyria: Huh? What are you doing with all those blankets, Aster?
Aster: Ah, Lyria. I was just going to hang the blankets.
Aster: They're so fluffy and comfy, you'll fall right asleep!
Vyrn: Were you going to go hang everyone's blankets by yourself? That's a lot of work!
Aster: I can only do it on a day off, so I thought now would be a good time...
Lyria: Hehe, let me help! You'll get it done faster if we do it together.
Aster: Thank you, Lyria! Ah... you too, (Captain)? Ohh it's okay, I'll hold that one!
Aster: Aww... I'm sorry to drag you all into this... it's turned into to a big laundry job because of me...
Lyria: Hehe... not at all. I can't wait to sleep on clean sheets and a fluffy blanket!
Aster: Lyria... (Captain) too? Good!
Vyrn: Let's take it easy today then! Have an apple or something!
Lyria: Huh? Aster, where are you going so late?
Aster: U-Umm... I was going to go to the forest...
Lyria: Wha?! To... the forest? It's dangerous to go out so late!
Aster: U-Uhh, umm...
Vyrn: Alright alright, you have something to do in that forest? Let's go with her, (Captain)!
Aster: Wha?! B-But... it's everyone's day off, so I want you to take it easy today!
Choose: A walk would be nice right now.
- A walk would be nice right now.
- I'll sleep better after some exercise.
Lyria: Yeah! It's nice and cool out now, so why don't we go for a walk?
Aster: Uuu... I didn't mean to rope you into this... I'm sorry...Choose: I'll sleep better after some exercise.
Aster: But, but aren't you all tired...? I wouldn't want you to overwork yourselves.Continue 1
Vyrn: Come on, Aster. You don't need to be so reserved! This is nothing!
Aster: Is... that so?!
Lyria: Hehe! Let's go, Aster. Here, take my hand!
Aster: ...Okay! U-Um... if you don't mind, (Captain)... could you hold my other hand...?
And so (Captain)'s party set out for a stroll in the night.
And Today We Rest!: Scene 2
Aster finds what she's looking for in the dark forest. It was a flower that shines in the night and emits a pleasant smell when dried. Aster snuck out to get this flower as a token of appreciation to the party for their hard work.
Aster: I-I didn't think we'd run into monsters... is everyone okay?
Lyria: Don't worry, everyone's alright.
Aster: Oh good... ah!
Lyria: W-wait! What's wrong, Aster?
Aster finds something and runs off alone. (Captain) and company follow her.
Aster: Found it! ...I'm glad the vegetation is similar to Cizierma.
Lyria: Wow...! This little flower's shining! So pretty...!
Aster stops in front of a small, shining flower at the base of a dark tree.
Aster: This flower shines like this during the night. That's why I came to pick it at night.
Aster: Not only does it smell really nice when dried, it relieves fatigue and prevents bad dreams!
Vyrn: Ah... so you came here to collect these. But why didn't you just tell us?
Aster: Um... I wanted it to be a surprise for everyone...
Lyria: I see, that's why you wanted to go alone... but I'm glad we got to see this flower blooming together!
Vyrn: Yeah! It's not every day you get to see something like this. Let's relax here for a bit before heading home!
Aster: Yeah! ...To tell you the truth, I was afraid of going to the forest alone... I'm glad you all came with me...
(Captain) and company enjoyed their night time stroll in the forest before heading back to the airship.
And Today We Rest!: Scene 3
As Aster thinks back on the day, she feels disappointed about creating more work for the others in an attempt to do something nice for them while they rest. However, (Captain) cheers her up and Aster is determined to work hard again the next day.
Aster: Ah... (Captain), it's getting late. Shouldn't you get some rest?
Aster: Me...? Um, I'm getting ready to dry out the flowers we picked in the forest yesterday.
Aster: If it turns out well, I'll make a scent bag out of it... I hope you'll use it.
Aster: When I was young, my mom would make it for me whenever I get sick. It really helps!
Aster: I was going to make it for you because I wanted you to rest well, (Captain)...
Aster: But I ended up making you all work more...
Aster: Huh? You want to go to bed together? Wouldn't I be in your way?
Aster: ...If you say so, I'll go with you (Captain)!
Aster: Hehe, even without the scent bag I'm sure I'll have nice dreams sharing a blanket with you, (Captain).
Aster: I wanted to do something nice for you, (Captain)... but you ended up doing something nice for me instead.
Aster: Oh! I've got a good idea! (Captain), are your shoulders feeling stiff?
Aster: My dad said I was good at shoulder massages! Leave it to me!
Aster: There... oh! Your shoulders are so stiff! That must be so uncomfortable!
Aster: Hehe, does it feel good? I'm glad I can help.
Aster: I'll do what I can tomorrow, too!
The kind-hearted Aster always does her best to make others happy.
Her journey with (Captain) seems to bring her much joy as well.
