The Old Soldier's Meddling
(Captain) and the crew make a stop in order to repair the Grandcypher. Everyone is enjoying a short break, but Eugen suddenly forces them to venture into the forest.
(Captain) and company are forced to stop to fix the malfunctioning Grandcypher.
While they wait, they enjoy their break from the usual fighting.
Lyria: The weather is so nice today!
Katalina: It sure is. Perhaps we should go for a walk.
Rackam: Yeah. Besides, I can't even fix the ship without the parts.
Rackam: Siero said they'll take two or three days to arrive. I think I'll go take a nap...
Vyrn: That sounds like a great idea. All this sunshine is making me sleepy too.
Io: What's with everyone? Hey, lizard. I want to sleep too, so be my pillow.
Vyrn: Hm? Oh, it's fine! (Captain), you should take it easy too.
Io: And if you were to say that you can't sleep alone, I suppose I could be persuaded to sleep next to you, (Captain)...
Eugen: Hey, you guys... You got a minute?
Katalina: What's the matter, Eugen? Are you planning on going somewhere too?
Eugen: Yeah. I'm heading into the forest. And you guys are coming with me.
Vyrn: What? B-but my nap...
Eugen: No buts, Vyrn. Or are you planning to let a feeble old man like me teeter around in the monster-infested woods?
Eugen: Of course you're not! Now hurry up and get ready!
The Old Soldier's Meddling: Scene 2
Eugen is after the wine made by Erunes who live in the forest. As the crew heads to the Erune village, monsters appear before them.
Vyrn: Erune wine? You seriously dragged us out here just for that?
Eugen: Don't be silly! The wine made by the Erunes in this forest is said to be super rare!
Eugen: Since we're here, it'd be daft not to take a few more steps and give it a try.
Katalina: Erune wine is indeed said to be the best in Phantagrande.
Rackam: And we came this far into the woods already. We might as well get a bottle before going back to the ship.
Vyrn: I think I'll take my nap anyway, so can you carry me there, (Captain)? Night night...
Lyria: No sleeping, Vyrn! Monsters are coming!
The Old Soldier's Meddling: Scene 3
Eugen and the others grow ever more excited about the wine. As they get close to the Erune village, monsters attack.
Vyrn: Hah! H-huh?
Where's my mountain of apples?
Where's my mountain of apples?
Eugen: Wake up already, unless you want one of the monsters in this forest to make an apple out of you.
Katalina: So the wine isn't available unless we go this deep into the forest? It must be something else.
Eugen: Yeah. I bet it's definitely worth going for a little stroll in the woods.
Lyria: I wonder what it tastes like. Even I'm starting to look forward to it!
Eugen: Oh no you don't, little lady. Wine's no drink for kids.
Eugen: But don't worry about it. I'm sure the trip will be worth your while.
Eugen: Look! The Erune village is right up ahead!
The Old Soldier's Meddling: Scene 4
Eugen ends up not getting the wine he wanted, but he seems satisfied. He cheerfully reveals that he actually dragged everyone to the Erune village because he thought they were getting lazy and could use the exercise.
Vyrn: What? You don't have any? But we came all the way here...
Erune Man: I'm sorry... We're still making the preparations, so there's nothing to drink.
Lyria: I see... What are we supposed to do now?
Eugen: There's nothing we can do. C'mon, (Captain)! Let's go back!
Vyrn: I don't get it... Why's Eugen so cheerful?
Lyria: I'm not sure... but we should keep up!
Eugen: Wow! Now this is what I call wine!
Vyrn: Hey, Eugen! What's the meaning of this?
Eugen: What? Didn't I tell you? Wine's not for kids.
Eugen: Milk's more your speed, baby lizard.
Vyrn: Don't play dumb! And how many times do I have to tell you I'm not a lizard, old man!
Vyrn: If the Erune wine's available at the Knickknack Shack, why'd we have to go all the way into the woods?
Vyrn: You knew about this all along, didn't you?
Eugen: Of course! The Erune make the wine, but they leave the distribution and sales completely to others.
Vyrn: So why bother with the nature hike?
Eugen: Because you all have been getting lazy recently.
Eugen: So I thought it'd be nice to get you to train by fighting some monsters. First decent exercise you've had in a while, right?
Vyrn: Exercise? Why didn't you just tell us?
Eugen: Ha-ha! If I spoiled the surprise, it wouldn't be any fun!
Eugen: Listen up. Battles can happen at any time.
Eugen: And that makes ambushes ideal for training.
Katalina: Eugen does have a point.
Eugen: Yep. And I'd be more than happy to put you through more training if you ever get lazy again, so you better stay sharp!
After laughing it off, the old soldier gulps down his drink.
As the crew's journey continues, the old soldier always makes sure to provide just the right amount of training.
