Happy birthday!
Come on and open this present already, Captain!
Bwahahaha! Did I get ya?
Hehehe... The real treasure's always right under the trap! Enjoy!


Happy birthday. I've got somethin' for you, (Captain)...
A gift from me. I was thinking you and I could go check out this place...
Yeah! These ruins are chock-full of crazy traps! Heheh! How 'bout it? How 'bout it, then?
Awww! We can't go?
Pretty please! I'm just craving excitement!
Let's go and get some thrills together! I've been so bored lately!
Come on! Come on! Please, (Captain)!


(Captain), happy birthday to you! I'm so ecstatic to spend such a precious day with you!
Thanks to you, (Captain), I've been able to experience all sorts of things. It's been such a thrill!
And I'm very grateful too! I want to keep seeing more and more places on this journey with you!
I'll do everything I can so that you make it to Estalucia one day!
I mean, all I can really do is treasure hunt and defuse traps, but you can count on me to do it to the fullest! Heh-heh-heh!


Happy birthday! I got you a present. Here, take it!
Hmm? What is it, you ask?
This here is your very own ticket to adventure with Karva, treasure hunter extraordinaire!
Together we'll take on lots and lots of ancient ruins, and get a taste of thrills and riches!
Wait, (Captain)! There's no need to hold back!
You haven't gotten a healthy dose of thrills lately, have you? So let's go find some together!
I'll even let you have all the treasure we find on the way since it's your birthday!
So come on, pleeease!


Happy birthday, (Captain)!
Heheheh... That adventure among the ancient ruins last year was fun, wasn't it?
Well, when I didn't defuse the trap properly and you were about to fall through the hole in the floor... I really panicked there.
Then you got caught in the trap and ended up falling in the right place... Boy, were you lucky!
You seem to always have it going for you, don't you, (Captain)!
After all, in desperate situations, what saves you isn't your skill but your luck!
If you have both skill and luck, then you can enjoy any kind of thrill in life!
I'm looking forward to having many more exciting adventures with you this year, (Captain)!

Happy New Year Cutscenes

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


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!


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!


Hee-hee... Ah, (Captain)! I just got word of some ancient ruins, waitin' to be explored!
A new adventure awaits us for the new year!
You'll get to experience new thrills! Not to mention you'll get a New Year's present! Two birds with one stone, right?
What New Year's present, you ask?
Ahaha! Why, there's always thrill and treasure to be found in ancient ruins, silly!
So nick anything you can find and that'll be like your very own New Year's present!
So let's go, (Captain)! No time to waste!
Whoo-whee! How exciting! I wonder what kind of treasures await us this time?


Ugh... I need more thrill... More thrill in my life...
You know, I've been thinking hard about this... How does a girl seek out thrill when all everyone wants to do around New Year's is relax?
Couldn't come up with anything good though. Found some ways to surprise people, but nothing was actually thrilling.
What're we supposed to do, (Captain)... It's gotta be a life-or-death situation. Otherwise, it's just boring.
What? Someone asked you to check out some old ruins on New Year's? And you're gonna take on the mission?
Well, why didn't you say so earlier? I feel a whole lot better now.
Thank you, (Captain)! Here, have some mochi!
You don't needa worry! I fixed up that mochi so that even if you were to make it explode, all you'd get is a nice roasted flavor.
All right, I'm gonna get ready for some ruins raiding! Lemme at 'em!

Valentine's Day Cutscenes
# Link Text

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?


(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?


(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!


(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!


Ooh, (Captain)! I hope you're ready for my trap chocolates! They're new, they're improved, and they're shaped like little pods.
They're stuffed with all kinds of goodies. Just opening one'll get your heart poundin'!
You wanna know what's inside? But that'll spoil the surprise.
Will poison darts fly out? Nope. Will it transform into a monster? Not quite. Huh. Didn't know you liked that kinda stuff.
Hehe. Oh, but don't worry. There are traps inside, all right. If you don't open these the right way... Boom!
And it's not gonna be normal confetti that comes flyin' out. No, no, no. Touch one of those babies, and you'll be smelling funny for days! Oddly thrilling, huh?
Right. So let's see if you can tell which treasure chests are real and which are fake. Have you got what it takes to find the prize, (Captain)?
Heh-heh-heh. This is gonna be good. What's the holdup? Go on and open one up!

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


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!


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)!


...! (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!
(Captain)... W-water!
Ngh... To think I would choose poorly here!
I'll choose the right one next time for sure!


Wh-what the?
No, you don't needa explain... This box has got danger written all over it.
Wow. Never woulda guessed I'd get somethin' so thrilling on White Day.
What're these? Smoke bombs? And—oh my gosh—is that thing gonna leak sleeping gas? Whoo-wee! This thing is just traps, traps, traps.
Let's see here... Looks like if I don't solve everything in the right order, all the traps'll go off at the same time. Then I won't be able to get what's inside.
It's rigged up real good. Where'd you even find a chest like this?
What? You got it as payment for checking out some ruins? So this treasure chest's the real deal!
Hot diggity dog! I feel them chills comin' on! Now I just gotta unlock this thing!
This is the best White Day's present ever, (Captain)! When I open this thing up, let's split the spoils, 50-50!

Trick or Treat Cutscenes

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...
T-trick or treat? Ahaha, you prepared this trap just for me?
Phew, that was exciting!
I'm ready for more, (Captain)!


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?


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!
No holding back, (Captain)! Try your best tricks on me!
Hee-hee... I wonder what you've got ready this time!
Whoo-whee! How thrilling!


(Captain)! Trick or trick!
Hm? I got it wrong?
Nope, I'm pretty sure I got it right! That's because a trick is the only thing I'm looking for!
Play a trick on me, or play a trick on me! There's only one answer!
So! Give me your best shot, (Captain)!
A w-water balloon? And when did those kids behind you—erk!
Ergh! I didn't think you were going to throw a bunch of them all at once!
Ack! Ahaha... This is actually kind of fun!
Come on, your target is getting away! Give me that thrill I'm looking for, (Captain)!

Happy Holidays Cutscenes
# Link Text

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!


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!


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!


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!


(Captain)! You gotta see this!
So, uh... I was trying to lay out another trap for Santa. But I fell asleep when I was only half-way done.
Then, when I woke up, there it was—right by my pillow! A present!
Look at how aged it is, how faded the lines! This is 100%, no doubt, a treasure map, right?
I'm sure Santa means it as some kind of message. "Use this, and work on your traps some more."
Thank you, Santa! Before this time next year, I'm gonna have built the best trap ever!

All for the Thrill

Mary sends Karva a letter explaining that she has found ruins from the War. Karva then recruits (Captain) and the others to explore the ruins with her. To prepare for the expedition, Karva chooses each piece of equipment carefully.

Karva: Ruins that haven't been touched since the War?
Karva reads a letter aloud on the Grandcypher's deck.
Dear Karva,

I've discovered some ruins from the War that have been left basically untouched!
But there are just way too many traps here... I can't seem to get to the treasure on my own.
So I'm asking you for your help and expertise. I'll split whatever treasure we find inside with you too!
Karva: Virgin ruins with lots of traps...
Karva: Hmm...
Karva: Get a grip, Karva! I've got to tell (Captain)!
Karva: (Captain)!
Vyrn: H-hey... What's gotten into you? Why the rush?
Karva: Here! Read this!
Karva hands the letter to (Captain).
Lyria: Oh, is this... a letter from Mary?
Karva: Yeah. That's not the point though—just read it!
(Captain) and the others read the letter.
No version of Mary in crew

Mary is a treasure hunter constantly on the move.
The crew met Mary during one of her hunts for new treasures. Feeling that their meeting was destined, she joined them.
Vyrn: Oh yeah... Mary was talking about something she wanted to check out before leaving the ship.
Lyria: Hahaha... I remember that.
Mary had previously left the crew upon their arrival at a certain town, indicating that she had business to attend to.
Vyrn: I can't believe she found ruins from the War that are still intact... that's really something!
Karva: Mary did always have a nose for finding new treasures.
Karva: Come on, (Captain)! Let's go to her and find this treasure!
Karva: We have to get a move on! I mean, just think—ruins that have been left untouched, filled to the brim with traps!
Lyria: H-hahaha... What should we do, (Captain)?
  1. I'm interested in the treasure.
  2. We can't leave Karva hanging.

Choose: I'm interested in the treasure.
Vyrn: Yeah! Me too! If no one's been there, then it must be full of stuff!

Choose: We can't leave Karva hanging.
Lyria: Good point. We have to think of Mary too... She needs our help.
Vyrn: Yeah... And if no one's been there, it must be full of stuff.
Continue 1
Karva: All right! Let's go see Mary!
The crew nods in approval and sets a course for the location written in the letter.
Karva: Hmm... The letter said that she'd be somewhere around here.
Mary: Hey! Karva, (Captain)! Over here!
(Captain) and the others turn to see Mary waving her arms to greet them.
Mary: Thanks for coming, you guys! I'm so glad you're all here.
Vyrn: Yeah, well we had to come after hearing about this treasure!
Karva: Yeah! There's bound to be lots of traps, so of course we'd come!
Lyria: Ahaha....
Mary: Sigh... Some things never change, I see. Anyways, I'm counting on you.
Mary: You see... It doesn't look like l have any chance of getting to the treasure on my own.
Karva: Leave it to me! I'll be all over those traps!
Karva: So, Mary! Tell me all the things about these ruins!
Mary: Sure!
Mary begins explaining the details of the ruins.
Karva: Wow... So they have those kinds of traps. That means we'll need to have better equipment than usual.
Mary: Agreed. Since these ruins haven't been explored yet, it's better to be safe than sorry.
Karva: All right, that settles it. We've got a lot to stock up on, so let's go shopping!
Mary: Yeah. We'll need to get food too. Leave that to me.
Mary: You all go get the equipment.
Karva: Gotcha! I'll make sure to get stuff for (Captain) and the crew too.
Mary: Fantastic. Let's come back together once we've got our things.
With those words, Mary heads towards the market.
Karva: Let's get shopping, (Captain).
Lyria: W-we're going? But we don't know what a treasure hunter needs...
Karva: Hehe! Leave all of that to me!
Karva: Let's see here...
Karva thoroughly examines various knives with an intense look in her eyes.
Karva: Hmm, these won't work out for this expedition... Let's see what else they've got...
Karva: Oh! These are perfect! One, two three...
Karva: Hehe! I'll take all of them!
Vyrn: ...
Lyria: ...
The crew is thoroughly impressed at Karva's earnest attitude—a sharp contrast from her usual easygoing self.
Karva: Finished! To the next shop!
Lyria: Oh! What cute gloves. I'll take these.
Karva: Hm? Let me see.
Not bad...
Karva begins touching the gloves.
Lyria: Umm... Karva?
Karva: These are great! The material is perfect for getting caught in traps!
Vyrn: Uh... What do you mean by perfect for getting caught in traps?
Lyria: Ahaha... I guess I really will take these.
Lyria: How about this rope, Karva?
Karva: Hmm... Let's try the next store.
Karva exits the shop without buying anything.
Vyrn: Whoa, hey! Where are you going?
Vyrn: Don't we need rope?
Karva: The rope in that store didn't get my heart racing.
Karva: We're gonna be descending into dangerous territory, right? We can't enjoy the thrills properly if the rope snaps on us!
Lyria: Karva! How about this rope?
Karva: Gasp! My heart just skipped a beat! It's perfect!
Karva: This should do just fine... There are lots of other things we can use here too!
Karva: Oh, get this one! And this one too! These look real good!
Lyria: Okay. I'm on it.
Karva: Thanks.
Karva: We've got knives, rope, gloves... Hmm, what else...
Karva inspects each item one by one in detail.
Karva: All right! That looks like everything. We've got some extra stuff too, just in case.
Karva: This is it! We're ready!
Vyrn: Wow... I wasn't expecting you to prepare everything so thoroughly.
Karva: Of course I do. If I didn't, we'd be in danger.
Vyrn: I never thought I'd hear you say that... Don't you like getting caught in traps?
Vyrn: I mean, you even go out of your way to activate them...
Karva: Hehe! That's the fun of it all!
Karva: What kind of deadly traps will I have to deal with next?
Karva: When I get to thinking about the possibilities...
Karva: My body just trembles with excitement!
Lyria: Ahaha...
Vyrn: Sigh... You don't make a lick of sense.
Karva: Why not? Don't you just love feeling that rush?
Karva: It's not everyday life throws those opportunities at you!
Vyrn: Yeah, sure... If you get hurt, what are you gonna do?
Karva: Hurt? I'll be fine! As long as you're prepared, traps can safely be enjoyed!
Karva: I've got all kinds of methods to keep myself in check too!
Karva: I mean, I could always get hurt, but I won't let traps be the end of me!
Karva: Plus, it'd be sad if they never got used!
Lyria: What are you talking about! We can't have you getting hurt!
Karva: I guess you're right... I wouldn't be able to play with as many traps if I got hurt.
Vyrn: That's not the point here!
Karva: But think about it—where's the fun in getting treasure safely?
Karva: It's the sweat and tears from overcoming dangerous traps that makes getting treasure feel truly worthwhile!
Karva: There's a sense of accomplishment. That's the essence of being a treasure hunter.
Karva: I want to work hard for my treasure! That's my duty as a treasure hunter!
Karva: That's why I can't ignore a single trap!
Vyrn: Sigh...
Lyria: Ahaha...
Growing more concerned by the minute, the crew nervously laughs as Karva's speech continues.

Let the Thrills Begin

Led by the trap-expert Karva, the crew heads into the ruins where traps are never in shortage. Karva, seeking thrills, disarms the traps and sets them off on purpose at times. The crew heads deeper into the ruins where Karva expects to find even more excitement.

Karva: I'll keep an eye out for traps, so stay behind me and do as I say, okay?
Vyrn: Got it!
Lyria: Understood!
Mary: We're counting on you, Karva.
As such, the crew makes their way into the ruins under Karva's guidance.
Karva: I can feel it! My trap sense is going off!
Karva: I'm gonna need you all to get down—and as low as possible!
Lyria: Huh? Like this?
The crew seems confused, but nevertheless follows Karva's orders and gets way down low.
Karva: Yeah! Just like that. Just sit still for a second!
The next second, a pendulum blade rushes through the air with resounding momentum above the crew's heads.
Vyrn: What the...
Lyria: Ah! M-my hair...
Karva: Wow...
Karva: This is what I call F-U-N! If you hadn't gotten down, you'd be missing a lot more than just your hair!
Mary: This isn't fun! Disarm the tra—
Karva: Oh! Watch your head, Mary.
Mary: Huh?
As Mary stands up, another blade swings down toward her.
Mary: Ah!
Mary dodges the blade just in the nick of time.
Vyrn: A-are you okay?
Mary: Yeah, just barely.
Mary: Ugh! Karva! Disable that thing already!
Karva: Hehe! Okay!
Karva takes out her toolkit and disarms the trap.
Karva: There we go. Now you can all stand up.
Vyrn: Phew... To think we'd run into a trap like that right away...
Lyria: Yeah...
Karva: Hurry it up, slowpokes!
Karva: If that was the first trap, then things are just going to get more exciting from here on out!
Karva: I'm so pumped!
Mary: Sigh... I'm just the opposite...
Karva: Hmm... Aha! One of those traps.
Lyria: O-one of those traps?
Karva: Yup. The classic arrow-in-the-wall trap.
Vyrn: Wait! Aren't you going to disable it first?
Karva: Hehe! I've already done that! We're A-OK!
Mary: Thanks! Let's keep moving.
Karva: Hmm... Aha! Another classic contraption...
Lyria: What kind of trap is it this time?
Karva: A guillotine. It's gonna come from up there...
Karva: Aaand... there! Disarmed!
Mary: Wow... Your trap disarming skills are as sharp as ever I see.
Karva: Haha... I bet you could disarm this too.
Mary: I'm sure I could, but not as fast as you.
Mary: Sigh... It's hard to admit this... When it comes to traps, I can't hold a candle to you.
Mary: Huh?
Vyrn: Hey... I thought you disarmed it?
Karva: I was talking about the guillotine.
Lyria: Does that mean... there are other traps that you haven't disabled?
Karva: Yeah, but don't worry. They aren't that dangerous.
Karva: I'm telling you—you're fine! Just make sure to run, okay?
Mary: Um... Karva? What are we running from?
Karva: The falling ceiling.
Lyria: W-we're in danger! The ceiling is coming down!
Mary: You know, sometimes you're really... Actually, save it for later. We gotta run, everybody!
Lyria: R-right!
Vyrn: Karva! What part of this isn't dangerous, again?
Karva: Oh, come on. As long as you haul that booty, you'll be okay!
Mary: Ain't nobody got time for this conversation!
Vyrn: Huff... Puff...
Mary: As one... pant... would expect... from such... ancient ruins.
Karva: Sigh...
Mary: Hm? Karva, what's wrong? You seem a little down.
Karva: I'm a little disappointed. I feel like I've seen all of these traps somewhere else before...
Karva: It's not like I'm not excited, but...
Karva: You know... I just expected a little something more out of ruins from the War.
Karva: Sigh... This just isn't doing it for me.
Lyria: Umm... Don't worry! We still haven't seen the innermost parts of these ruins!
Mary: She's right! How can you call yourself a treasure hunter if you give up halfway through?
Vyrn: Plus, there should be some crazy traps near the treasure, right?
Karva: Yeah, that's true! There's still hope.
Karva: Let's see what lies ahead!
Karva returns to her normal, jolly self and continues to lead everyone deeper into the ruins.
Vyrn: Sigh... She's hard to love...
Mary: Tell me about it. What kind of person gives up halfway through an adventure because it isn't thrilling enough?
Mary: Grr... If these ruins don't get her attention back, we'll be in deep trouble!
Vyrn: You said it... We need to make sure she stays motivated enough to lead us out of here safely.
Lyria: Ahaha... Yeah.
The crew members nod in agreement.
Karva: C'mon, everybody! Make a move on or I'll leave you all behind!
Lyria: Please wait! We're coming!
Karva moves farther ahead as the rest of the party rushes to catch up with her.

Let the Thrills Begin: Scene 2

The crew finds itself deeper in the ruins seeking treasure. As they proceed, Karva's sixth sense for traps is activated and her heart begins to race. As the traps become more dangerous, so too does Karva's excitement.

Karva leads the crew to a deeper recess of the ruins.
Karva: Gasp!
Mary: Something wrong? Why'd you stop?
Karva: I can feel it... Something's coming!
Karva: My trap sense is going wild!
Mary: Really? Keep your guard up, everyone—be ready to move at a moment's notice!
Mary's expression immediately becomes solemn upon hearing Karva's words.
Vyrn: Whoa! Why so serious?
Mary: I've known Karva for a long time. Whenever her trap sense goes wild, something really bad happens...
As such, (Captain) and the others approach their surroundings with heightened caution.
Karva: Time to get going! I can't wait to see what lies in store for us!
The crew follows Karva into a room.
Karva: Lyria! Don't step on tha—
Lyria: Huh?
Before Karva could finish her sentence, Lyria's foot touches the ground, activating a trap.
Vyrn: What the... The door closed!
Lyria: That... wasn't my fault, right?
Karva: Sure was! That was a trap!
Mary: You sound awfully pleased about it! Wait... The traps in this room haven't been disabled, have they?
Karva: Hmm... Nope!
Vyrn: Come on, get serious!
Water begins flowing into the room from the ceiling.
Lyria: Oh no! The water's coming down hard!
Karva: Whoa, looks like we're about to be in deep water... literally!
Karva: We've gotta find a way out before it fills the whole room—come hell or high water!
Mary: Quit with the water jokes and get us out of this already!
Karva: On it!
Karva begins searching every inch of the room.
Karva: Hmm... If this activates the trap, then this is probably connected to whatever's pumping the water. So... maybe this?
Lyria: Ah! More water is flowing in!
Karva: Oh... Whoops.
Vyrn: Whoops? We're about to drown here!
Karva: Don't be such a worrywart! You can still breathe.
Karva: And besides... Heh. Heheheh...
Lyria: Karva?
Karva: Heheh... This rush!
Karva: This thrill... It's to die for!
Karva: And if I make just one mistake here, that could very well be our fate!
Karva: Now this is what I've been waiting for!
Vyrn: Who says that! Hurry up and fix this!
Karva: Hehe... Ahem. If that was also a trap, then that means...
Karva: Something over here must drain the water...
Karva: Right here!
Karva finds a stone and steps on it, draining the water from the room.
Mary: Phew...
Lyria: That was too close...
Karva: Now that was more like it!
Karva: This is what being a treasure hunter is all about!
Vyrn: Sigh...
Lyria: Ahaha...
Karva: Let's keep going, (Captain)!
Karva: Whoa! This kind of trap? Here?
Karva: This one definitely needs to be taken out.
Vyrn: Whoa, it must be a really crazy trap if you're saying that!
Karva: This is—
Karva: Oh, Mary! I wouldn't take another step forward if I were you!
Mary: Huh?
Mary stops moving and something drips onto her bag.
A mist descends from the source of the dripping liquid at an alarming speed, disintegrating Mary's bag.
Mary: What the... What is this stuff?
Mary throws what remains of her bag to the floor.
Vyrn: What kind of traps are these?
Karva: Acid rain that can melt anything!
Vyrn: You've gotta be kidding!
Karva: No need to worry. I'll turn this one off in a jiffy! Just watch out for leftover droplets.
Lyria: What happens if a droplet touches us?
Karva: You'll end up like this.
Karva kicks the remnants of Mary's bag.
Lyria: ...
Vyrn: ...
Mary: ...
Karva: This is so exciting... I've got goose bumps!
Karva: I knew this place would be awesome! I mean, this trap is just marvelous!
Karva: All right! Let's keep moving—just pray that none of that stuff gets on you as we go deeper.
Lyria: Huff... Puff... Are there traps here?
Karva: Hmm... Nope. Not that I've seen.
Karva: But check out these markings... My trap sense is going off too.
Vyrn: Pant... Wheeze... Can we rest for a sec? I'm beat.
Lyria: Me too...
Mary: Well, if Karva hasn't seen a trap, it wouldn't hurt to catch our breath for a moment here.
Karva: Huh?
Mary: Karva, what's up?
Karva: That sound...
Lyria: A sound?
Vyrn: What is that?
Karva: Ahaha! Everybody, run! This one is gonna be really dangerous!
Karva exclaims before breaking into a swift run.
Vyrn: Huh? What are you talking about!
Karva: Behind you!
Mary: Huh?
The crew turns to see an enormous boulder quickly rolling toward them.
  1. Run!

Choose: Run!
Everyone breaks into a sprint as soon as they catch (Captain)'s words.
Karva: Ahahaha! This is so thrilling!
Karva: This is why I could never stop being a treasure hunter!
Vyrn: Aaagh!
Lyria: Ah! Arrows are flying!
Karva: Ahaha! Dodge 'em carefully if you wanna keep your head in one piece!
Mary: Yikes! Karva, do something! At this rate, we'll be crushed!
Karva: Ahahaha! Okay, I don't want pancakes for friends anyway!
Vyrn: Wheeze... This ain't the time... for... jokes!
Lyria: Huff... Puff... I see a room over there! Let's go for it!
Lyria points to a conveniently located room appearing to offer refuge from the boulder.
Karva: Aha, you're right! But it could be another trap!
Mary: Pant... We... We don't have time to speculate! Just go inside!
The crew follows Mary's command and dives into the room.
Mary: Huff... Puff... Looks like... we're safe.
Mary: Huh?
Monsters: Grooar!
Vyrn: Whoa! This room is swarming with monsters!
Karva: Oh, is that all? What about traps?
Karva: Hm? Wait a second...
Karva takes her eyes off the monsters and begins scanning the wall.
Karva: These holes in the walls are definitely traps! Don't let the monsters distract you from them, everybody!
Karva: Hehehe... Our stamina's been drained, and now we have to fight our way out of this room—all while avoiding traps!
Karva: This combination of traps is a first for me! Hehe! This is all so new and exciting!
Vyrn: Now's not the time! Let's get to it!

Let the Thrills Begin: Scene 3

No sooner does the crew reach the treasure than the ruins begin to collapse. Karva quickly procures what she can and later shares her fortunes with all. For her, the greatest treasure of all is the rush from escaping danger.

After slaying the monsters, (Captain) and company proceed further into the ruins.
Vyrn: This place is pretty spacious compared to what we've seen so far. What's with that door?
The crew's attention is drawn toward a majestic-looking door.
Mary: There's no mistaking it—the treasure's gotta be waiting for us in there. Stay sharp, everyone.
Mary takes a step forward and the ground beneath her feet crumbles.
Mary: Ahh!
Karva: Mary!
Karva catches Mary's hand just in the nick of time and helps to pull her up with (Captain).
Karva: That was close...
Mary: Thanks, Karva. Thanks, (Captain).
Karva: Who would have thought the last trap would be a pitfall?
Karva: Simple but effective. There's no way to disarm this kind of trap, after all.
Karva throws a rock into the pit.
Karva: Whoa! That rock still hasn't hit the bottom. How deep does this hole go?
Karva: Can you imagine if you fell in? You'd be a goner!
Karva: Anyways... It looks like we've gotta watch our step in here.
Karva: Now then... How do we know where it's safe to walk?
Karva: Hmm... I've got it! Just make sure to stick real close behind me, everyone!
Karva: Take one wrong step and it's sayonara!
Mary: Got it!
Lyria: Okay!
Vyrn: Right! Wait... I can fly, so I guess that doesn't apply to me!
Karva leads the way by stepping where the ground won't crumble beneath her.
Mary: Nice! The door is really close! Where do we go next, Karva?
Karva: Hmm... Maybe here.
Karva: Huh?
Karva takes a wrong step and the ground collapses beneath her.
Lyria: Ahh! Karva!
Mary: Hold on!
This time Mary is the one who grabs Karva just as she falls.
Karva: Th-thanks, Mary.
Mary: After this... We're even! I'm paying back... my debt!
Karva: Ahaha! Sure!
Mary: Oof... Why are you... so... heavy, though? It doesn't look like you've... put on any weight.
Karva: Now that you mention it...
Karva takes out various jewels, gold, and other treasures from her pockets and begins to toss them down the pit.
Mary: How in the... How much treasure are you carrying!
Karva: What can I say? I've got a knack for finding treasure.
Karva: I've just been picking things up here and there.
Lyria: Ahaha! That's so like you.
Vyrn: Yup.
Mary: Sigh... All right, I'm going to pull you up now. Help me out here, (Captain)!
With a great tug, (Captain) and Mary pull Karva from the pit.
Karva: Thanks, (Captain). Thanks, Mary.
Karva: Whew... Now that was intense! I've never had thrills of this caliber before!
Mary: Sigh... You're really out there...
Vyrn: That's our Karva for you.
Lyria: Ahaha...
Karva: All right! We're almost there, so stay on your toes, everyone!
Vyrn: Pant... Pant... We're finally here.
The crew slowly approaches the majestic door with cautious steps.
Karva: Okay! Let's open it!
Mary: Hehe! I wonder what kind of treasure is waiting for us!
Lyria: Wow! This is amazing!
Karva: There's so much treasure!
The crew's eyes light up upon seeing mountains of treasure beyond the door.
Mary: All the treasure!
As Mary squeals with excitement, she approaches a mountain of treasure and picks up a trinket.
Mary: Huh?
The ruins begin to shake violently as if the entire place will collapse at any moment.
Lyria: Um... I think these ruins are about to collapse on us.
Mary: What!
Karva: That makes sense...
Vyrn: What part of this makes sense!
Karva: This is also... a trap. If anyone tries to take the treasure, the treasure takes them instead...
Mary: No way!
The rumbling of the ruins only grows more violent with time.
Vyrn: This is getting out of control...

    Karva: Yeah! We're not gonna be victims of these ruins!
    Mary: Wait a second, (Captain)! Karva! What about all of this treasure?
    Karva: Which do you want more—your life or the treasure?
    Mary: ...
    Mary: Ugh...
    Vyrn: Mary! We don't have time!
    Karva: Mary!
    Mary: All right! I get it! Let's get out of here!
    The crew hurriedly retraces their steps back out of the ruins.
    As soon as they make it out of the ruins, the entrance collapses as the ancient structure topples to the ground.
    Vyrn: Phew... That was close.
    Lyria: Huff... Puff... Yeah...
    Mary: I can't believe it... I spent so much researching these ruins, too!
    Karva: Hehehe... Don't beat yourself up. I'll split my treasure with you.
    Mary: What? What treasure? What are you talking—
    Karva: Hehe... About that, actually.
    Karva takes out a plethora of various treasures and trinkets from her pockets.
    Vyrn: Hey... Didn't you just empty your pockets earlier?
    Karva: I did! This is new stuff I got from the treasure room!
    Karva: I quickly assessed which stuff had the highest value and grabbed what I could!
    Vyrn: What! How? You really work fast!
    (Captain) and the others can only laugh in awe at Karva's shrewdness.
    Karva: But those ruins were really something! My heart was racing like crazy from all the thrills!
    Karva: I wanna go on that ride again!
    Vyrn: Sigh... Count me out next time.
    Lyria: Ahaha... Same here.
    Mary: Sigh... You're one of a kind, you know that?
    Karva: Huh? Why? That was so much fun!
    Karva: There aren't many ruins that give that kind of rush, you know!
    The exasperated crew sighs as Karva continues to rave.
