During their travels, our heroes met Keehar, a former skyfarer, and helped protect his village from monsters. That night, Keehar spoke forlornly of his granddaughter Selfira, who wanted to leave the village and travel the world. Hearing this, our heroes suggested he go on one more journey -- and invited him to travel with them.
During their travels, (Captain) and company arrived at a village under attack from monsters.
(Captain) and company teamed up with an aging former skyfarer by the name of Keehar, and together they protected the village from the monsters.
Vyrn: Oh, I see... So you were a skyfarer like us when you were young, huh, gramps?
Keehar: Yes, indeed! Our order was founded by a bard, and I worked as a bodyguard.
Keehar: Oh, it was a fun journey, to be true. We had our share of hardships, of course, but in the end, it was a truly unforgettable experience.
Lyria: That sounds wonderful, sir. Which islands did you visit? I’d love to hear all about it!
Keehar: Well, let’s see... An island made of ice... An island of giants, where everything was super-sized... Even an upside-down island!
Lyria: What?! An upside-down island...? Like, people were walking around on the ceiling or something...?
Keehar: Yes, indeed. Boy, it was the strangest thing. When we disembarked onto the island, gravity pulled us up to the ceiling. And if we dropped something, sure enough, up to the ceiling it went!
Keehar: I tell you, we couldn’t believe it! Other than that, it was a fairly peaceful island, and the people loved our bard’s songs.
Lyria: Wow...! That’s amazing! I want to go there, too!
Vyrn: Hang on... He’s gotta be making it up, right? Then again, the world is full of unimaginable things...
Keehar: Hahaha! A skeptic, eh? Well, that’s fine. Even I’ve wondered if it might have all been a dream!
Keehar: You see, the experience you gain over the course of a journey will drastically shape you as a person. That’s why young people ought to travel! Traveling is good for you!
Vyrn: Yeah, I agree! But then, why did you quit being a skyfarer, gramps?
Keehar: Well... There was this young couple, you see, and when they died of disease... it was decided that I would adopt the child they left behind.
Keehar: Heheh! Child-rearing was quite the adventure! It’s a serious responsibility, becoming a parent, but at the same time, it’s truly a wonderful experience.
Keehar: And I must say, I raised an unbearably cute little granddaughter!
Lyria: Hehehe... Sounds like a happy family, sir.
Together with Keehar, (Captain) and company defeated the monsters and returned to the village without incident. Later that night...
Lyria: Huh? You’re still awake, sir?
Keehar: Oh, it’s you. What’s the matter? It’s late, you know.
Vyrn: Gahaha! Lyria woke up thirsty, but she was too scared to go get a drink of water by herself!
Lyria: Well, you know...! I mean, what if there’s a ghost...? Oh! Wh-what about you, sir? Can’t sleep?
Keehar: I’m afraid not... You see, the other day my granddaughter Selfira told me she wants to be more independent.
Keehar: She’s at the perfect age to go on a journey of her own... I knew this day would come eventually, but I never thought it would come so soon...
Keehar: Sigh... I know it’s something to be celebrated, but I’m going to miss her so much...
Vyrn: I see... You must be really close with your granddaughter, huh, gramps... I’d be a little sad, too...
Lyria: I know! I have an idea, sir. Why don’t you go on one last journey? Come with us!
Vyrn: Yeah! Even if you DO make up most of your stories, you still have a lot of good advice!
Vyrn: Well, (Captain)? What do you think?
Choose: I want to hear more of his stories
- I want to hear more of his stories
- The more, the merrier
Keehar: Hahaha! You’ve got a point there. I’m sure my life experience would make a great resource for you.
Keehar: But advice isn’t the only thing I’m good for. I can still hold my own against a monster or two!Choose: The more, the merrier
Keehar: Yes, indeed! Back in my old order, they used to say I was the life of the party!
Lyria: Hehe! You sure do seem like a jolly free spirit, sir.
Keehar: Hahaha! Even with a broken heart, I’ll keep on smiling!Continue 1
Keehar: Hahaha! I’m in the second spring of my life! Let’s have some fun, everyone!
Keehar: A new adventure... A new chapter of my life... I’m so excited to tell Selfira!
And so, Keehar joined (Captain)’s group and set off as a skyfarer once more.
His prowess with the bow and bountiful life experiences would surely provide support for the younger members.
From Fable to Fact
On a day with gusty winds... The party is listening to Keehar’s adventure stories on the deck of the airship. Lyria is touched by the story where he does an aerial walk with his umbrella. Right when Lyria asks Keehar to continue his story, monsters appear before the party.
Lyria: Whoa! The wind is so strong today!
Keehar: Ngahaha! This brings me back to the days I was still a skyfarer-in-training.
Keehar: The previous day had heavy rain. I flew the skies on the airship and tried to dry my umbrella on the deck of the airship.
Keehar: I tried to clean that up, but the umbrella flew away from the wind...
Vyrn: Wow... so you lost your umbrella.
Keehar: No! I managed to grab the handle of the umbrella at the last moment... However, the umbrella flew out in the sky with me still hanging on it!
Lyria: W-What?! S-So... Did you fall off the airship?!
Keehar: Ngahaha! I enjoyed my aerial walk with the umbrella!
Lyria: And then what happened?! What happened?!
Vyrn: We’ve got trouble! Lyria! Grandpa! The monsters are getting in the way of the airship!
Keehar: This is an emergency! We must fight to protect the airship! Let us go, Captain!
From Fable to Fact: Scene 2
Influenced by Keehar’s story, Lyria says that she wants to fly, too. Keehar says that he was riding on the back of a primal beast and not only by an umbrella. He then starts talking about an island of fruit.
Vyrn: Hey, Lyria. Why are you taking out an umbrella all of a sudden?
Lyria: Hehe! I’ll fly with this! The wind is strong, so I’m sure it’s possible!
Vyrn: Say what?! What are you thinking?! That’s dangerous! Stop it!
Lyria: B-But! You said that you flew with the umbrella!
Keehar: Oh, Lyria. Now that I think about it, the wind was much stronger that day.
Keehar: The wind was so strong that it knocked a flying primal beast out of the air, and fell onto the deck!
Lyria: Wha?! A primal beast?! Gulp... That wind must have really been something...
Keehar: I looked after to the primal beast and it let me ride on its back as thanks! That’s how I flew!
Lyria: Wow...! You rode on a primal beast?! That’s amazing I want to ride one too!
Vyrn: Hey how... Did you fly with the umbrella or the primal beast?
Keehar: The primal beast led me to an island covered by a vast forest... I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Keehar: That forest was filled with fruit trees! Apples, plums, walnuts... You could eat all you want!
Lyria: Wow! That sounds wonderful…! Wouldn’t you like to go there, (Captain)?!
Vyrn: I want some apples... If that island really does exist, that’d be great!
Keehar: Whoops. I’d like to talk some more, but it seems like there is a monster in the path of our airship!
Keehar: Lyria, Vyrn... Stand back! I swear by my bow that I will protect you!
From Fable to Fact: Scene 3
Right before a monster crashes into the airship, a single arrow shot by Keehar takes it down. The party manages to escape danger and descends upon a nearby island. The villagers ask the party to hunt some monsters. Agreeing to it, the party enters the forest.
Vyrn: All right! We got the monsters! Good job, (Captain).
Keehar: No! Even now...! There is one coming this way!
Lyria: Ack! At this rate, the monster will crash into Grandcypher!
Keehar: It’s too late to change directions at the helm! I’ll take care of this!
Vyrn: A-Amazing! Grandpa! You took out the monster with a single arrow!
Keehar: Ngahaha! This is nothing! I can do this with my eyes closed!
Keehar: Hm? I see an island. How about we go down there to rest for a while, Captain?
Lyria: I agree! We had to fight monsters, so let’s rest at a village.
Villager: What should we do...?
Keehar: Hello, sir. Is something bothering you? Try talking to me!
Villager: Well... Monsters that appear from the forest near the village have been destroying our crops.
Vyrn: That’s terrible. We should do something about it, (Captain)!
Villager: R-Really?! I see… you guys are skyfarers. Please help us! We’ll reward you of course!
Lyria: Leave it to us! (Captain), let’s go to the forest!
From Fable to Fact: Scene 4
After the party defeated the monsters of the forest, they find out that this forest is an orchid. As thanks for defeating the monsters, the villagers offer the party to eat their fill of fruit there. Keehar’s story of adventures will continue to be a source of enjoyment for everyone.
Villager: Thank you for defeating the monsters! I don’t know how to thank you...
Keehar: We should always help each other! No need to feel so reserved.
Villager: You guys are such nice people! The forest you protected for us is actually the village orchid!
Keehar: Ooh! No wonder it smells so fragrant!
Villager: Ahaha! Is that so? As thanks, you can eat as much of the fruit at the orchid!
Vyrn: Wow, that's amazing! That huge forest is an orchid?!
Lyria: Hooray! We’re at the island that Keehar told us about!
Lyria: You're amazing! So many fruit grows here and we can eat all we want? It’s just like your story!
Keehar: That is true, Lyria. Journeys are fun because things like this happen! Ngahaha!
Vyrn: Isn’t it just a coincidence? Well, Lyria is having fun, so it’s fine!
Keehar: Let’s see... What adventures await us next? I can't wait to find out, Captain!
Keehar gives a bright smile. No one can really tell his stories are true or not.
However, (Captain) and the rest of the party know that they will be a part of many adventures with Keehar for some time to come.
Now and Forever
At the boy’s request, the party had saved the pregnant woman. They decided to keep an eye on him until his dad came to pick him up. The boy would be a big brother soon, but wasn’t sure he could do it. He found his courage with a little help from Keehar. Aletheia watched as the father left with his son to see how mom was doing, his thoughts on his poor bond with his own son. After a stern talking to from Keehar, Aletheia decided to mend his ways and fix their relationship.
Their mission completed, (Captain) and company decided to kick up their heels. They were soon interrupted by a small boy in a big fluster.
Boy: Hah... hah... E-excuse me! Misters! ... but!
Keehar: What’s wrong, young man? There, there... go ahead and tell us what’s the matter.
Boy: My mom... she... her stomach’s hurting real bad! ... and there’s a baby in there!
Aletheia: She what?! Hurry! Take us to her! Now!
The boy ran back to his mother with (Captain) and company hot on his heels. Together, they got his mother safely to the hospital.
Even in the throes of labor, the mother was able to say thank you to our heroes as they delivered her to the hospital.
Nurse: Thank you so much! She’s a fair bit ahead of her due date... I’m so glad you were there to help.
Aletheia: It was good of the kid to hurry up and find someone.
Nurse: What a clever boy! But... his mother hasn’t given birth yet. I’m not quite sure what to do with him now...
Keehar: Hmm? What happened to his father?
Nurse: About that... we were able to contact him, but he won’t be able to come immediately on such short notice.
Keehar: Is that so... well I’ve got an idea! How about we take care of the boy until dear ol’ dad makes his way over?
Nurse: Oh, my! You don’t mind? If you could just make sure he doesn’t stray too far from the front of the hospital...
Keehar: Indeed I can! You just do your best to take care of the mother.
Keehar: Right, Lord Aletheia? How’s that sound?Hanging around with a kid should do us old codgers some good, eh?!
Aletheia: Huh? Slow down a minute, Keehar! I’m really not good with ki?
Keehar: Dahahaha! Alright, boy. You’re going to sit with the old timers for a spell!
Boy: Um... okay, I guess. And um, Ms. Nurse? Take care of my mom, okay?
And so Keehar and Aletheia founds themselves doing a bit of babysitting until the boy’s father showed up.
Aletheia: Hrm... I got to say you’re looking a little down, kid.
Keehar: You really do. Must be worried about your mother and the baby, eh?
Aletheia: You got to straighten up, boy. Once that baby’s born, you’re going to be a big brother.
Boy: Yeah... I mean, I know. It’s just...
Aletheia: Well, I tried... just can’t get the knack of talking to the little ones, I guess.
Keehar: Listen here, kiddo. You’re going to be just fine! Take the word of an old Skyfarer like me!
Boy: Wha!? You guys’re Skyfarers?! You?! ... you can still be one when you’re that old?!
Keehar: Dahahaha! Hey, now. All a few wrinkles are is proof you’ve seen a few battles in your day, right? And an old timer’s world is good as gold!
Boy: ... right!
Aletheia: (Hm? Looks like that did the trick. Guess I just don’t get kids... )
Keehar: Hoho... you’re going to hang out with us. You know, make sure you don’t wander off and get yourself lost!
Boy: Um... well if you’re Skyfarers, I’d sure like to hear about your adventures!
Keehar: Hmm? Deeds of dashing derring-do, you say? I have those by the bowlful! It all began with...
Keehar’s tales were like something straight out of an old legend. The boy’s eyes shone with wonder.
By the time Keehar had reached a break in his story, the boy was ready to share what was troubling him.
Aletheia: So you want to tell us why you were looking like you were three days from the chopping block? Must be worried about mom, eh?
Boy: It’s... well, all they talk about is the dumb baby. I don’t even feel like their kid anymore...
Aletheia: Hrm... well you need a little patience. You’re big brother now. And protecting your little brother or sister is your job, you hear?
Aletheia: What d’you expect... how can you be a man if you’re jealous of someone weaker than you? Get it together, kid!
Boy: ... but?
Keehar: Slow down there, Aletheia. I understand what you’re trying to say, but you can’t put all that weight on him at once.
Keehar: I think your mom and dad would be pretty sad if you guys didn’t get along. And I’d like you two to be friends, myself.
Keehar: So what I’m saying is, you don’t have to be a big brother all at once. Just take it one step at a time, you hear?
Keehar: In just a little while, you’re going to be seeing that little baby for the first time. It’s bound to be a little awkward.
Keehar: I mean, you might have a squabble here and there at first. But then you’re going to be buddies before you even know it. You’ll go on and on about how cute that little baby is!
Boy: Sigh... you really think so, mister? It might be a boy. Or a girl... but cute? I dunno...
Keehar: Dahahaha! No need to worry about that! That’s the kind of bond that grows with time.
Keehar: I raised a granddaughter myself... well, technically we’re not related. But talk about adorable!
Keehar: Hoho. The same goes for your parents. Of course they’re going to love that little baby. But they love you, too.
Keehar: It wouldn’t hurt to let them know you need a little attention now and again!
Boy: Ooh! Really, mister?!
Keehar: Really. That’s your right as a kid, you know? It’s practically in the job description!
Boy: Wow! Thanks, mister! I don’t know why I was so worried... yeah. Yeah!
Dad: Hey! Sorry I’m late! And thank you. Both of you. Don’t know what I would’ve done without you.
Keehar: Dahahaha! Think nothing of it! Now get on and see your wife.
Dad: Thanks again for taking the time. C’mon, son. We can wait for the baby inside the hospital.
Dad: And I heard you ran to find someone when your mom went into labor. I couldn’t be more proud of you!
Boy: Hehe... that’s what big brothers do!
Dad: Oh! There it goes! ... you and me are gonna do our best to take care of mom and the baby. Right?
With a word of thanks, both father and son made their way into the hospital.
Keehar: Whew... seeing that, I guess there’s not much for us to worry about. And dear me, what a stand-up kid!
Keehar: Hmm? And what could be bothering you, my dear man? You look a tad bit gloomy.
Aletheia: Sorry... just thinking about my boy. He was about that age when things started going sour between us...
Aletheia: Ha... although I wasn’t exactly winning any prizes for world’s best dad...
Keehar: Then you need to get it together, man! If there’s something you don’t like about yourself, then fix it!
Aletheia: Hrm... but now? After all this time...
Keehar: I’ll have none of that quitting talk! It’s like the boy. You don’t start out being a father. You have to ease yourself into it.
Keehar: Can’t say I know the specifics of your situation, but there’s no such phrase as “too late”. Start your work and start it today.
Aletheia: Hrm... I reckon you’ve got the right of it. I never should’ve tried to give up in the first place.
Aletheia: It’s time to get to work. Starting with myself... hah! Guess an old dog can learn a new trick or two!
It seems that all it took to light a new flame in the heart of a jaded old Sage were the words of a well-seasoned Skyfarer.
Perhaps the day would finally come when Aletheia would finally be able to walk tall, freed from the burden of worry and regret.
Only time could tell. Some roads lead to futures even the Sage of the Sword cannot know.
