Scenario:Sarunan - Enshrined
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Guided by the spirit Honey, the crew visits the small island where she and Sarunan's relationship started. In a nearby forest, Sarunan's reminiscences are interrupted by monsters. The crew takes them on to save the local villagers.
Led by the uncharacteristically frantic Honey, the crew lands on a small island populated by Erunes.
Sarunan: This brings back memories... The distinctive smell of the woods and grass... It hasn't changed one bit.
Vyrn: What? You've been here before, Sarunan?
Sarunan: I have. This is actually where Honey and I first met. I could never forget this place.
Sarunan: What? Wait, Honey! Is that how it was? Really?
Sarunan: Are you serious? You must be teasing me! Please say you're just teasing!
Sarunan: Never mind then! Your jokes can be in extremely poor taste sometimes, Honey.
Sarunan: I hope you realize it's my easygoing personality that enables us to stay together. You can't treat others like this, you know?
Lyria: Honey says we should go towards the center of this island.
Sarunan: I didn't hear anything about this...
Vyrn: Hey, why'd Honey bring us here, anyway?
Sarunan: What! What am I sensing?
Sarunan: There are far more monsters here than there should be.
Sarunan: This could be bad... There's a small Erune village up ahead.
Vyrn: What? Then we have to move! We need to go check on that village now!
Sarunan: Indeed. This place has sentimental value for me. I won't allow monsters to run roughshod over it.
Vyrn: All right! Let's head through the forest and go to that village!
Enshrined: Scene 2
In the village, an Erune man tells the crew that his brother went to a nearby monster-infested temple to protect a spirit. (Captain) and the others offer to rescue him.
Sarunan: How terrible... This forest used to be beautiful, but just look at it now.
Vyrn: Let's hurry to the village! I hope it's not too late...
Erune Man: Excuse me! Have you seen a young boy around here?
Lyria: A young boy?
Erune Man: My little brother ran out saying that he had to protect the spirit, and he hasn't returned!
Erune Man: There have been violent monsters wandering around the forest recently... I'm so worried...
Sarunan: Calm down. What's this about protecting a spirit?
Erune Man: We have a temple dedicated to the spirit Kazann, who has protected us since time immemorial.
Erune Man: Because of the recent dramatic increase in monsters, villagers keep leaving the island.
Erune Man: And my brother thinks it's because Kazann's power has weakened, so he headed for the temple in the forest alone...
Sarunan: I see.
Vyrn: How can you be so calm? We need to hurry to that temple!
Lyria: We have to save this guy's brother and the spirit! Let's go, (Captain)!
Erune Man: Really? Thank you!
Vyrn: We're on it! We'll help both of them!
Sarunan: This certainly brings back memories. Honey and I met here.
Sarunan: Unlike the forest, this place is still beautiful. Did that man's brother really come here?
Lyria: You feel the presence of someone deep in the temple? That must be him! Let's hurry.
Vyrn: All right! We're coming for ya, kid! Let's go, (Captain)!
Enshrined: Scene 3
The crew rescues the trembling boy deep in the temple. He insists that he must protect the spirit Kazann even at the cost of his life, but Sarunan tells him that there's nothing the boy can do.
The crew reaches the temple's inner sanctum and finds a boy at the altar of the spirit Kazann.
Erune Boy: I'm not scared... I'm not scared... I'll protect the spirit.
Lyria: There's the boy! What a relief... It looks like he's safe.
Erune Boy: Eek! W-Who are you people?
Vyrn: Calm down, little guy. We're here to help you. Are you hurt?
Erune Boy: No... I'm fine, but...
Erune Boy: I came here to protect the spirit... But after seeing the monsters in the temple, I got scared, and...
Erune Boy: What's wrong with me? My legs keep shaking, and they won't do what I tell them to...
Sarunan: Hey, boy. Is the spirit still here?
Erune Boy: Yeah! Grandpa said that the spirit of the temple is always watching over everyone in the village!
Erune Boy: But even though there are monsters attacking this temple, all anyone in the village has done is run away.
Erune Boy: And that means I'm the only one who can defeat the monsters and protect the spirit!
Sarunan: I see... I commend your bravery. It's certainly something to be proud of. But there's nothing you can do here.
Vyrn: Hey! Did ya have to put it that way? He's just a kid.
Sarunan: Before you go off trying to protect the village, you need to learn to protect yourself.
Sarunan: If you can't even protect yourself, how can you protect the spirit, your village, or your family? You need to know your limitations.
Erune Boy: Shut up! As long as everyone else is okay, I don't care what happens to me.
Sarunan: Kids these days...
Sarunan: Do you think the spirit would be happy about you putting yourself in danger?
Erune Boy: Maybe not... But I—
Vyrn: Hey! This doesn't look good, guys. This monster is huge!
Vyrn: It must be mad because we beat up its friends!
Erune Boy: Aahh!
Sarunan: Protecting the spirit Kazann... If I'm the one who caused this mess, then I had better clean it up.
Vyrn: What do you mean by that? On second thought, it can wait!
Vyrn: Hey, kiddo! That monster's more than you can handle! So just stay hidden where you are!
Vyrn: Move it, (Captain)!
Enshrined: Scene 4
Sarunan had a reason for using magic to take Kazann away from this land, but it's not something the young boy can understand. The boy vows to protect the village so that Kazann can return to the island one day.
Sarunan: How dare these monsters defile this special place? I'll show them the power of the love between me and Honey!
Erune Boy: Hey, what was that? Was that the spirit fighting at your side?
Sarunan: That's right. Honey—or rather the spirit Kazann—is with me.
Sarunan: I was the one who took Kazann from this island.
Sarunan tells the boy how he met his destiny in this beautiful land blessed with natural abundance and happy residents.
But the beautiful spirit's life was coming to an end, and she was about to fade away from this world.
Sarunan: I came to this temple every day to see Honey. Perhaps it goes without saying, but I was in love with her.
Sarunan: I only had a little time with her each day, but I enjoyed every moment. I wanted it to last forever.
Sarunan: And then I learned that Honey's long life as a spirit was coming to an end.
Sarunan: I couldn't let that happen. Luckily, I was good with magic, so I used a certain spell and prepared to leave the island.
Erune Boy: I heard about that... A man was cursed after using a forbidden spell and got exiled from this island...
Sarunan: The spell was a success. To put it in simple terms, I sealed Honey into this staff to bind her to this world.
Vyrn: A-are you holding Honey in there against her will?
Lyria: She's not saying anything!
Sarunan: She must be so overcome with emotion that she's at a loss for words.
Sarunan: I still remember it clearly. She played hard to get at first and tried to resist the spell...
Sarunan: But I wasn't about to give up. I kept trying until I managed to seal her into this staff... The joy I felt then... Oh!
Vyrn: Yeah... I'm pretty sure this guy's a creep.
Erune Boy: So you're the guy who took away the spirit of the temple!
Erune Boy: Give her back! Give us back the spirit!
Sarunan: You're clearly not hearing me... If I had not sealed her in the staff, the spirit Kazann would no longer exist in this world.
Erune Boy: Ugh... But...
Sarunan: But I suppose there's one way for you to get her back. Just become strong enough to take her from me.
Erune Boy: Really? Then that's exactly what I'll do!
Sarunan: Very well then. Give it your best shot.
Sarunan: I can't save her on my own...
Erune Boy: I'll protect this island so the spirit can come back at any time!
Sarunan: I'm sure Honey will be watching over you as well. Even though I don't like it one bit.
Erune Boy: Do you mean what I think you do?
Vyrn: That's right! Honey is the one who told us the island was in danger.
Lyria: What's that? You look forward to meeting this boy again? I'm sure you do!
Thus (Captain) and company take flight in search of Estalucia once more.
Though Sarunan is agitated at the thought of Honey watching over this land from afar.
Sarunan: It's my job to protect you, Honey! I can't just give up on that!
Sarunan: The forbidden spell to share a person's life span... If we are to reincarnate you, it would seem we have no choice but to get to Estalucia.
