Here's to a year full of traps and thrills! Heheheh! That's my resolution!

2

The countdown ball for New Year's Eve is always exciting to see, don't you think?
It reminds you of a trap, right? Where a giant boulder drops and comes rumbling your way!
Oh boy, I can't wait to explore more! Hey, (Captain), how about we visit some exotic ruins to search for treasure?
Heheheh... I wonder what the first trap of the year will be!

3

Ahhh... Hmmm... I think it's great when the new year comes because everyone gets so cheery...
But... all this relaxing just isn't for me. Ahhh...
I want thrills... I want dangerous traps...
Huh? The Grandcypher's on course? For some ruins? Some dangerous ruins where they have heaps of traps?
Thank you, (Captain)! I knew joining this crew was the right idea!

So how about it, (Captain)? Did you get a treasure trove of gifts for Valentine's Day?
Heheheh! Well here's a present from me! Don't you just love the thrill of gifts?

2

(Captain)! You look pretty pleased getting something special from everyone!
But you'd better watch out! On sweet days like this, you might fall into a sweet trap... Like a honey trap!
Just a little advice from the trap expert herself!
Oh, that's right! I'd better give you some chocolate from me too!
It's not poisoned of course! And it's not a trick either! But wait, is that what you were hoping for?

3

(Captain)! Here's some chocolate!
You wanna know why I'm grinning so much? Well... you really wanna know?
Don't worry about it! Now try picking one chocolate out of those twelve and then take a bite.
Is it good?
Oh! That was a safe one!
Heh-heh, the truth is that... just one out of those twelve is a nasty trap!
And when you bite it... Uh-oh, I almost gave it away! Just be looking forward to it!

4

(Captain)! I made more trap chocolate this year! Have some, have some!
Listen to this—I've really upped it to another level this year!
Last year, out of twelve chocolates, eleven were safe. But this year's are different.
Out of twelve, only one is safe!
Now then! Will you be able to pick the lucky one from this batch?
Hee-hee... Are you feeling it now, (Captain)? The thrill! The excitement!
Hmm? You're worried that something unsafe to eat is in 'em?
Fret not! Unsafe ingredients, you say...
Hmm, yup! There shouldn't be that many inside!
Besides, if anything goes wrong I've already prepared some medicine right here!
So you're all set. C'mon, dig in!
Oh, how about I feed it to you myself instead? it's Valentine's Day, after all!

Whoa! This is for me? As thanks for Valentine's Day?
You surprised me... And that's the biggest surprise of the day! Heheheh...

2

Whoa! Is that for me? Since today is White Day?
Heheh... I love thrills like this that come straight at you!
It's like when you catch wind of a tricky trap, and your heart begins to pound! I could get used to this!

3

I just got back from getting the gift you left for me, (Captain)!
To think you'd go all the way to leaving it deep within an area of ruins...
And, oh, the traps along the way... Heh-heh! You thought of everything, didn't you? I'm so thankful for your kindness, (Captain)!

4

...! (Captain)... What's with those cookies?
I can feel an aura of danger coming from them...
Trap cookies as payback for Valentine's Day? And if I choose poorly, I'm in for a bad time?
Whoo-whee! I like it! Now this sounds like a real thrill!
Thanks a bunch, (Captain)! This is the first time I've received such a thrilling present!
All righty! I've decided to go with... this one!
Nnngh!

Trick or treat!
Oh, this is gonna be fun! Show me your best prank!
I can't wait to see what you've got in store! Heh heh heh!

Huh? What's wrong, (Captain)? There's something wrong with that chest? Let's see...
Yikes!
T-trick or treat? Ahaha, you prepared this trap just for me?
Phew, that was exciting!
I'm ready for more, (Captain)!

3

The crew's up to all sorts of schemes to pull off their pranks! It's incredible! Today's the best day ever!
And it seems you've been getting pranked left and right, (Captain)! How can I tell, you ask?
Anybody could figure it out! You're covered head to toe in mud!
After your foot got caught in a net on the deck, you got stuffed in a barrel and buried with a pile of mud, right?
Heh-heh-heh! You're a long way from being in the clear, (Captain)! There are all sorts of traps laid throughout the airship!
Say, (Captain)... How about you and I go and find them all?

4

Whoo-whee! Halloween really is the best, don'tcha think?
Everyone's getting in on the mischief! Traps and tricks galore!
What's that? Trick or treat, you say?
I see! You're planning something to do some trickery yourself as well, aren't you?
Huh? I can choose a treat instead?
Ahaha! As if I'd pick such a dull option!
I choose trick, of course!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes

Happy holidays!
So let me get this straight... Santa will bring me anything I want, right?
Even if it's a map to a treasure? Located in an impenetrable ruin? Filled with deadly traps? He'll really bring it?
Ooh, I can't wait!

2

Hey, (Captain)! Happy holidays!
You wanna know what I'm up to? I'm deckin' the halls with traps instead of holly.
Come on! Ha-ha-ha. Santa's gotta be bored just handin' out presents, right?
So how about a little present for him? I thought I'd give him his just desserts. Know what I mean?
Heheh! Of course they aren't bear traps! They're only enough to make him jump.
The finishing touch is a trick thank-you note... Heheheh! It's the perfect season to show off my trap expertise!

3

Heh-heh-heh! I'm thinkin' I should set a trap for Santa again this year!
Huh? That's a bad idea, you say? Well, last year he didn't make it past the trap to the trick thank-you note after all...
But Santa's just gotta be lookin' forward to a trap again this year, I think!
Second time's the charm, right?
All righty! I'd better go get that trick thank-you note ready for this year too!

4

Hmm, what to do...
Oh! Hiya, (Captain). I was just thinkin' of what kind of trap I should set for Santa this year.
I'm guessin' my thank-you letter from last year didn't reach him.
So I thought I'd make things a lil' easy for me this time around.
But I can't make it too easy for myself. Don't wanna lose the thrill, after all!
Hmm... I'm really stumped here.
Well, (Captain)? You got any riveting ideas?
Come on, I know you've got something good!
I'll give you a real thrill as a present in exchange!
So let's hear what you've got!

Fate Episodes[edit]

S.O.S.[edit]

The party had head to the unpopulated island after confirming that a distress signal had been sent from there. The woman there was a treasure hunter named Karva. She claimed that she had been deceived by her fellows and left stranded. The party picked her up and returned to their journey through the skies. Karva knew of the Island of the Astrals, the party's destination, where it was rumored that an unknown treasure slept. She asked to join the party on its journey to the Island of the Astrals. The party was a little uneasy about the woman, who seemed more interested in thrill-seeking than treasure.



The party had navigated close to an unpopulated island.
Suddenly Katalina leaned forward on the deck, and pointed out somethign sparkling on the island.
Katalina: Hrm? Is that a flare gun?
Vyrn: Oh? From that little island? I heard that island is unpopulated...
Katalina: Hm... Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me, but maybe we should send a signal in response?
Katalina test fired the flare gun. The sparkling projectile flew threw the sky, leaving a trail in its wake.
Katalina: Hm! I replied! That is a distress signal! We have to go help!
Thus the party landed on the island. The party approximated the point where the flare gun was fired and headed there.
Karva: Oooooh! You came!
Lyria: Are you all right?! What are you doing in a place like this?
Karva: Hahaha. I was on a mission assigned by other treasure hunters and was trying to avoid traps in the ruins.
Karva: Then I realized that my clients had disappeared without paying me! I give up...
Vyrn: Hey hey... That’s terrible...
Karva: Can I hitchhike? I'm glad you intercepted my distress signal.
Karva: This sort of thing actually happens a lot. I had better complain to an arbitrator when I get back.
Vyrn: Good grief... You need to be more selective about who you do business with.
Karva: That's right. I'm Karva, by the way. Since you're giving me a life, I guess I should introduce myself!
Thus the party returned to the Grandcypher with Karva in tow.
Vyrn: However, girlie... You seem to be in a pretty good mood for someone who was treated so horribly. I guess you are used to being treated like that?
Karva: Oh? Hahaha... You noticed? Truth is, you see...
Karva laughed complacently and produced a dirty ornament from a pouch.
Vyrn: Oh? That trinket’s dirty. And it's ugly, too.
Karva: Hahaha, I thought this might happen, so I swiped the best thing there was.
Katalina: It looks pretty intricate, but not something of any value.
Karva: Hahaha, don't be fooled by appearances. If you polish it like this... Check it out!
She then rubbed the ornament against her own clothing. And then...
The party was surprised at what was brought out. The part with dirt removed sparkled like gold.
Lyria: Wow...! It’s so sparkly!
Katalina: What?! Is it completely made from gold?
Karva: So it would seem from its weight? It’s actually pretty valuable.
Karva: So you wouldn't look at it just because it was dirty? You don't have an eye for appreciating treasure.
Karva: Let's go to sell it together when we get to town. As a reward for rescuing me, we’ll split the money from selling this equally!
Katalina: Wha?! I had no intention of doing such a thing...
Karva: Hahaha, no, it’s okay!
With Karva on board, the party flew to the town. Karva seemed like she had a lot to talk about, and when the party did talk to her...
Karva: Whaa?! The Island of the Astrals?
Vyrn: Ah! A letter was sent by (Captain)’s father...
Karva: I've heard amazing things about it. So there really are people who try to go there?
Vyrn: What?!? There are things that you should say, and things that you shouldn’t, girlie!
Karva: No no I didn't mean anything by that! I think it sounds interesting! Right? Incredible treasures, a super advanced civilization?
Vyrn: Actually we don’t really know if those things are true or not.
Our heroes were then bombarded with questions about the Island of the Astrals.
Finally Karva realized that the party was in fact serious about traveling to Estalucia, Island of the Astrals.
Karva: Haha, now my treasure hunter spirit is really worked up! Especially that I have seen people who are seriously trying to get to the Island of the Astrals!
Karva: I want to go with you! If you are going to the Island of the Astrals, the you are probably interested in investigating the ruins left behind by the Astrals, right?
Karva: I've pretty much had my fill of ordinary ruins. And I'm interested in treasures to be found on the Island of the Astrals.
Vyrn: Hmph... Well, we don't really have a lot of treasure hunters on board...
Karva: I’ll try not to be a burden! I’ll help you guys safely get treasures from sky ruins!
Karva: I am a topflight treasure hunter. I'm one of the best when it comes to knowledge and skills involving avoiding traps! If we find treasures I’ll divide them up equally with you!
  1. I don’t mind if we make money
  2. This is surely a trap

Choose: I don’t mind if we make money
Katalina: We certainly could use another source of revenue.
Karva: Hahaha, it’s decided then! We’ll properly divide the treasure equally!
Katalina: Yeah but... Aren’t you a treasure hunter? That means you’re pretty greedy, right?
Karva: Oh really?
Vyrn: All right. Isn't it odd to talk about divide treasures with people when you first meet them?
Karva: Hmph... I'm not especially looking for just treasure.
Vyrn: Mmm? There’s something else?
Karva: Do I have to explain? Do mountaineers have a reason for climbing mountains?
Lyria: Um... Mountain climbers? Hmm... I'm not really sure...
Karva: Hahaha... Then let’s set aside the details! I just love going deep inside ruins! When it comes to traps, let me take care of things!

Choose: This is surely a trap
Vyrn: Hmph... You're quite a slick talker...
Karva: Whaaat?! I like getting caught in traps, but I don’t like entraping people!
Vyrn: I don't know what to think of someone who says they actually like getting caught in traps...
Karva: I want to see Astral ruins and the Island of the Astrals!
Karva: So... Please! I crave excitement!
After listening for Karva go on at length about her love for ruins, (Captain) finally gave in and let her join the party.
Karva: Whoa! Hahaha! Thank you, (Captain)!
Karva: When it comes to ruins, and especially traps, leave it to me!
Continue 1
Karva: I'm psyched! I’ve never raided Astral ruins before... This is gonna be a blast!
Katalina: By the way... Are you a ruins specialist?
Karva: Of course! Something like, say, a shipwreck with no traps whatsoever is boring!
Lyria: Um... I see... That’s pretty odd.
Vyrn: Good grief... This chick is a weirdo.
Thus the treasure hunter Karva joined our heroes on their journey.
She believed that wherever there's a trap, there’s treasure. Her keen sense of smell would prove to be a great asset to our heroes.

It's Just Not That Exciting[edit]

Taking on a request from the Knickknack Shack, the party sets out to rescue a man who was lost in the ruins. Everyone thought Karva, the ruins specialist, would be up for this job but she seems very unwilling. Not even wanting to walk anymore, Karva is dragged along by (Captain) and company as they head out to the dangerous ruins.



Karva: Ahh... Ehh...
Vyrn: Hey, what’s wrong? You don’t seem your usual self. Are you okay, lady?
Karva puts her face down on the table, not very willing to move.
The party was on their way to the Knickknack Shack but was faced by an unexpected hold up.
Karva: Well... I mean... I have things going on too, you know?
Vyrn: Okay, go on...
Karva: Well, it’s like... This hunting for treasures is getting... Meh.
Vyrn: Huh? What do you mean, “meh?” You’re finding all those treasures and making pretty good money off it.
Katalina: Yeah. You’ve helped quite a bit since you joined us.
Karva: No... That’s not what I mean. It’s like, even if there’s tons of treasures, I still feel empty inside.
Katalina: Hm... And by that, you mean?
Vyrn: Hey, the time! We’re supposed to meet at the Knickknack Shack! Let’s get going!
Karva: Ehh... I don’t feel like it. You guys can go...
Vyrn: Don't give me that! We can’t even start the quest without you!
The party arrives at the Knickknack Shack, dragging along Karva who still seemed cranky.
Sierokarte: Hello, everyone! I’ve been waiting for you!
Katalina: So, what’s this quest you have for us?
Sierokarte: Well... A hunter who left for the ruins a few days ago hasn’t returned yet or something...
Sierokarte: And so... His family has requested that there's a search...
Katalina: Hmm. Well that does seem like something we’d need Karva for.
Sierokarte: Yep... I hear it’s quite a dangerous place, those ruins...
Karva: Oh great, yay... I guess I could go take a look at least...
Vyrn: Eesh. We’re headed to a dangerous place. I hope you know that...
Sierokarte: Hehehe!These ruins are so scary even the locals won’t go near it... So I’m sure you can expect some nice treasures! Exciting, right? Treasures!
Karva: Ehh... I so don’t feel like it...
Vyrn: Come on, lady. Aren’t you a treasure hunter? Aren’t you supposed to be all hyped-up and having that itch to see the place?
Karva: My itch went somewhere... But I guess if it’s work, I have to do it.
Vyrn: Err, okay... I’m starting to get worried for you though...
Vyrn: Anyway! I guess we won’t be relying too much on Karva. Let’s head out to the ruins for now!
Karva: Yeah...

It's Just Not That Exciting: Scene 2[edit]

With the help of Karva’s advice, albeit slightly unmotivated, they progress smoothly through the ruins and are able to find the lost hunter. The party tries to leave the ruins soon after but the hunter tells them it won’t be easy. He says there are traps set all over the place that only target people when they try to leave the ruins. Hearing this, Karva regains her energy and starts charging into these unknown traps.



Even after reaching the ruins, Karva still seemed out of it.
(Captain) and company search through the ruins, dragging her along since she didn’t want to walk anymore.
Karva: Uhh... Don’t go that way... There’s usually monsters in places like that.
Karva: And that’s something from pretty recent... So the person you’re looking for is probably over there-ish...
Vyrn: Hey! Thanks for guiding us and all but can’t you walk yourself?!
Karva: Ehh... I don’t feel like moving...
Karva somehow manages to lead the way while still being dragged. Soon...
Young Man: Oh? What are you doing here in a place like this?
Vyrn: Oh! Mister, are you...?
(Captain) talks to the young man and it is revealed that he is the missing hunter that they were looking for.
Young Man: Ah, so you came to find me?! What a relief!
Karva: Yay... Quest done... Work done. And I’m back to being useless...
Young Man: Well, actually. It’s not that easy.
Vyrn: Huh? Why's that?
Young Man: You see... These ruins are very easy to get into. But it’s made so that you can’t get out.
Young Man: These traps seem to react when you try to leave the ruins.
Karva: Oh? Tell me a little more about that part in detail.
Vyrn: Er? What’s up the sudden energy burst?
The young man begins to talk in detail about how he couldn’t get out of the ruins. Karva quickly began to show interest as her lively self returned.
Karva: Interesting. A trap that even a great escape artist like me couldn’t find? Well, this is exciting!
Karva: Now that I look back on it, you’re right. I should’ve known. There seems to be danger lurking in the air.
Karva: Mmhm... hmhmhm! I feel it! This tingling sensation of danger! It lashing at my horns!
Katalina: W-wait, Karva! What do you plan to do?
Karva: First, we try to go home normally. Just be normal.
Young Man: Wha?! It’s dangerous! I’ve already encountered so many near-death moments...
Karva: Heh heh heh. If something happens, then that’s that! Gotta jump into the lion’s den or whatever, right?
Vyrn: What the... hey! Don’t just leave us behind!

It's Just Not That Exciting: Scene 3[edit]

With Karva happily leading the way through the various traps, the group managed to escape from the ruins. Just a while ago, Karva had been completely spiritless and now she’s filled with delight and excitement. The party just tilt their heads in confusion. Karva says that she just wasn’t feeling right because she hadn’t been through any traps recently. She calls herself a thrill-addict, to which everyone just rolls their eyes.



Karva: Hum de hum hum! Ladiladila!
Vyrn: Whoa! That was close! An arrow just shot at me! You be careful too! (Captain)!
Karva: Whee! This is so much fun! If you were just a step off, your head would’ve been split in half! Hahaha!
A complete flip to how she was just a moment ago, Karva has a big smile on her face as she hums and steps over the many traps.
She continued to go deeper and deeper, as if trying to challenge every single trap available to her. Escaping from the ruins wasn’t her priority any more.
Vyrn: Wait, stop! Why are you activating traps that we don’t even have to go through?!
Karva: Oh, haha... Oops, sorry. I’ll admit it... I’m a thrill-addict. I have to have a steady supply of thrills, you know? Or else I get these lazy fools...
Karva: Speaking of which... Didn’t you get that rush when the arrow barely missed you? That sensation! It just makes me feel so good! I love it!
Karva: It’s not fun just being able to get the treasure, you know? You have to have that thrilling moment!
Young Man: Wow! Amazing. This is something I can definitely learn from. That’s the appropriate attitude of a treasure hunter.
Vyrn: Um. I wouldn’t suggest it. You wouldn’t have enough lives if you tried doing what she does. f
And so, the group returns to the Knickknack Shack, quite a bit later than they were expecting.
Sierokarte: Oh, look who’s back! Glad to see you all!
Vyrn: You should’ve seen this lady! By the end, she started wanting to go off to see the rest of ruin... Just for the traps!
Karva: Haha... I guess I did get a little too excited there.
Young Man: You really were amazing though. Perhaps you can take me under your wing?
Woman: Honey! Are you hurt?!
Vyrn: Uh... Who’s this lady?
Sierokarte: Well of course! She’s your client!
Woman: Thank you so much, everyone. This is the reward. Please accept it.
Karva: Oh, uh... Hahaha. Well I kinda dragged your husband around for a long time. It’s already night time...
Karva: And I probably made him go through a lot of danger too. So... I can’t quite accept the reward this time. Teehee.
Woman: But...!
Karva: If you ever need us again, feel free to send us another quest! Good bye then!
Vyrn: Uh, hey, wait! Where are you going, lady!
With a couple quick goodbyes to their client, the party runs after Karva who already left the shop.
Vyrn: Hey! Why did you tell them you didn’t need the reward? What are you thinking?
Karva: Hehehe... Well, actually...
Karva takes out a wrapped object from her pocket. They peer in to find...
Vyrn: Whoa! Is that a gem?! When’d you get your hands on that?!
Karva: I secretly swiped it while we were running through the ruins. Hehehe...
Vyrn: Well, somebody knows how to work it.
Karva: I know I was excited and running around but I sensed something suspicious, you know?
Karva: And then I found this amazing thing. I know it’s worth a lot. So you see why it’s a little hard to accept the reward when I’ve got this...?
Katalina: You really are a smooth one.
Karva: I’ve come to a conclusion that treasures are wonderful because traps come with them.
Karva: What usually comes with a dangerous trap? Amazing treasure, of course! That thought alone fires me up!
Vyrn: Err... I think I kind of get it, but not really...
Karva: Oh man, I had the best time! I’m so glad I went with you, (Captain)! Thanks to you, I got to see that wonderful ruin!
Karva: I’m so excited to see the island of Astrals! And the traps that the Astrals set up! And any trap that might still be on the island!
Vyrn: I’m... just going to stop talking...
Finding out that Karva was secretly a thrill-addict, (Captain) and company didn’t quite know what to make of it.
But to note, it was that trait of hers that guided them to the treasures. When everyone realizes that, they couldn’t complain much more.
