Transcript

[Start of level]

Rosaline: Thank heavens... Lorsan, sir, you've finally made it.

Lorsan: My lovely Rosaline, long time no see. I was wondering what the "big deal" you wrote of in our last letter would turn out to be. If it's preparations for the banquet, then it's really quite simple.

Rosaline: Although Oscar keeps saying that "leaving preparations to you is quite reassuring"... I really don't know that I'm up to the task, especially since it's my first time, you know? I can't help worrying I'm biting off more than I can chew.

Lorsan: No need to fret, Rosaline. I believe the precise opposite is true - Oscar would not have left things in your care had he no confidence in you to handle it.

Rosaline: ...You're right! I just need to concentrate on Oscar's instructions, my Tea Cup of Vibrancy's encouragement, and my Broom of Vitality's support! A-Anyway! First thing's first, let's make our way to the Manor and discuss the banquet plans with their Housekeeper!

Lorsan: That's the way, Rosaline! Keep your chin up! I'll be with you the whole time, there's nothing to worry about.

Objective Log: Go to the Manor and discuss the banquet preparations with the Manor Housekeeper.

[Speak to Manor]

Rosaline: Apologies for my intrusion, dear Housekeeper, but I, er, we are here now to... We want to discuss the banquet preparations with you.

Manor Housekeeper: I already heard about the details in a letter I received earlier.

Rosaline: Huh? I don't recall ever sending out any letters...

Manor Housekeeper: It's nothing of consequence. Prior to your arrival I had the Manor cleaned top to bottom, inside and out. Using it for the banquet is no issue.

Rosaline: Gosh, you truly are dependable!

Manor Housekeeper: However, somewhere east of the Manor a band of brigands from who-knows-where have set up camp. If they are not removed, I am concerned that their presence will endanger our guests. That being said, it is my hope you can resolve this inconvenience before the guests arrive.

Lorsan: We'll have them gone in no time.

Manor Housekeeper: Oh, that reminds me, a suitable professional dancer will be required for the dances. I've recently been on the look out for suitable individuals, apparently on such person who is keen to improve their rhythmic aptitude has been seen in the eastern hills. You ought to enquire en route.

Rosaline: There's also the matter of banquet food...

Manor Housekeeper: Purchase of the essentials has already been arranged by myself, but to the north is a market assembled by local farmers and their kin. Should there be any other foodstuffs or articles you deem necessary, that would be the place to shop.

Rosaline: Duly noted! Thank you very much, Oscar, sir!

Manor Housekeeper: In that case, I wish us all a successful banquet.

Lorsan: (Muttering) Seems everything is just as Oscar said. In the long time since we've last seen each other, Rosaline really has come a long way. She's perfectly capable of getting her work done efficiently and methodically. (Muttering) But Oscar, who had me secretly escort her for fear of any mishap, is ever the same. He truly covers all angles.

Objective Log: The bandits in the mountains to the east need to be completely cleared out.

Objective Log: You can go to the Market in the north to buy any ingredients or necessities you need.

Objective Log: You need to confirm a Dancer for the banquet dance. Go to the east, to the mountainous area and ask around.

[Defeat northeast camp twice]

Rosaline: It looks really dangerous around here. I wonder where those brigands Oscar spoke of are hiding themselves?

Lorsan: The wind speaks of imminent danger. Tread carefully, Rosaline.

Rosaline: O-okay Lorsan, sir!

Objective Log: Clear the area of bandits! Find the bandit leader and eliminate him!

[Continue to defeat bandits]

Rosaline: Thank goodness you were here, Lorsan, sir! You sent them on their way! Unfortunately, we've yet to enquire about the dancer...

Lorsan: Don't be disheartened. See that little shack just in front of you? Perhaps the dancer we seek is there?

Rosaline: You're absolutely right, Lorsan, sir! Let's go take a look.

[Speak to Shack]

Dancer: Nice! Someone's come to save me! Thank you so much! I wouldn't be locked up here if I hadn't fallen for their stupid ploy.

Rosaline: I-I'm sorry to inconvenience you, Ms. Dancer... We require a dancer for our banquet, a professional to liven things up, and we want to invite you to fulfill that role...

Dancer: A dancer? You folks got the wrong person, I'm just a bounty hunter.

Death's Denier: However, I do happen to know a dancer, they live pretty close by. There's a magic Doorway in that wood over there to the west, perhaps give that a shot? Oh yeah, I also found a bunch of tunnels those bandits dug, seems to be a shortcut outside. Since those fellas are gone now, you can use that route if you're in a hurry.

Rosaline: I see... Well, thank you, Ms. Bounty Hunter!

[Speak to Small Castle]

Young Lad: Who are you? Are you people daddy found to play with me?

Lorsan: The person Ms. Bounty Hunter mentioned... Could it really be a child?

Rosaline: Sorry to interrupt, little one, but we're looking for a dancer. You wouldn't happen to know someone around here who dances, would you?

Young Lad: Oh I know I know! The dance teacher daddy found for me! But he's hardly ever here after class, and when he is, he usually just hangs out in the garden on his own, lost in thought in the bushes. Bushes like that one, actually. You can ask him when you find him.

Objective Log: The little boy handed you an exquisite key.

Objective Log: Find the would-be-dancer candidate in the garden bushes.

[Inspect Suspicious Bush]

Rosaline: Mr. Dancer... Um? Why are you going back into hiding, Mr. Dancer?

Lorsan: It's possible he thinks we're merely annoying rubberneckers, it might serve us best to explain our situation to him.

Rosaline: You have a good point, Lorsan, sir.

[Inspect other Suspicious Bush]

Rosaline: Mr. Dnacer walked off at such a pace that I didn't even have a chance to call out to him.

Lorsan: It seems our work here is yet to be done!

[Inspect other Suspicious Bush]

Rosaline: Found you! Mr. Dancer, I would like to formally invite you to dance at our banquet...

Dancer: Can I refuse?

Rosaline: Well, yes, I suppose you can, but please consider the proposal a moment...

Dancer: (Sigh) I'm not unwilling, it's just... Just thinking about all the eyes on me, everyone staring, it makes me so nervous. I can't stop myself from shaking all over! If you're happy with that sort of performance, then fine, I'll take part.

Lorsan: Oh, well, in that case... It isn't terribly ideal.

Rosaline: ... (Sigh)

Lorsan: Come now Rosaline, don't let this take the wind from your sails! There may yet be someone else we can ask, we can always go back and ask the Housekeeper.

Rosaline: Alright...

Objective Log: Go back to the Manor and consult the Manor Housekeeper.

[Return to Manor]

Manor Housekeeper: You couldn't find a suitable dancer? What a pity...

Manor Servant: Hmm... Maybe the village near the market would be worth a try, there's a lass there who used to be a maid. She loved to dance! She only gave it up because the dresses were too costly.

Manor Housekeeper: In that case, please take this dress to her and ask her to try it on, I doubt she'll refuse.

Rosaline: You're so generous, sir!

Manor Housekeeper: Excellent work, you've done well. The banquet premises will be considerably safer for all.

Objective Log: Go to the village by the Market and look for the Lass That Likes To Dance.

[Speak to Cozy Log Cabin]

Lass: Can I help you?

Rosaline: Greetings, we are seeking an outstanding dancer for our banquet, you wouldn't happen to be interested in taking the leading role, would you?

Lass: Goodness! I'm honored, really! ...It's just, I don't have a single nice frock to wear, I'm afraid I'd look a shamble at such an occasion.

Rosaline: No trouble at all, we've prepared a fine gown here for you. If it's not too much hassle, would you mind trying it on?

Lass: Gosh, it's gorgeous! I'll try it right away!

[Speak to Lass again]

Rosaline: Wow... A perfect fit!

Lass: Thank you, thank you so much for allowing me the chance to fulfill my dream of dancing in front of everyone! I'll be sure to dazzle everyone with each and every step!

[Buy from Market]

Lorsan: With this stuff we bought, this should be everything.

Rosaline: Lorsan, sir, please wait a minute to allow me to take note of our stock. Vegetables, meats... Hmm, I can't help feeling like something is missing...

Lorsan: Did you forget fruit? I recall you were reading up on how to prepare a mixed-berry cake.

Rosaline: You're absolutely right. I'm shy one bag of cranberries. Good thing you're here to remind me, Lorsan, sir!

[Buy from Market again]

Fruit Vendor: Oh dear, I'm terribly sorry, our cranberries have all sold out. How about this? You swing by my orchard and pick your own? For a little effort, I'll cut your costs - I won't charge you as much. One bush's worth will fill a single bag.

Rosaline: Wonderful! Thank you so much, sir!

Objective Log: Go to the orchard and pick a bag of cranberries.

[Pick Cranberries]

Rosaline: The preparations for the banquet are finally finished... I won't let Oscar down! Thanks so much for everything, Lorsan, sir. If not for you, I'd never have managed any of this.

Lorsan: Not at all, Rosaline. You're not the timid wallflower maid you used to be, you've grown so much and come so far. I've no doubts Oscar would be immensely proud of your hard work.

[Speak to Fisherman]

Fisherman: Are you folks trying to get to the south dock? There's nothing there.

[Speak to Fisherman again]

Fisherman: I told you, there's nothing there! You're scaring off all my fish.

[Speak to Fisherman again]

Fisherman: Why is it folks like you are always here to pester me when I'm fishing? I can't catch any fish all because of you! You want to go to the south dock, right? Then go into the kitchen and find out what ingredients are needed for Pirate's Delight.

[Speak to Kitchen]

Chef: Pirate's Delight is made from a combination of various types of seafood and full-grain rice. The juices of the seafood infuse the rice with rich flavor, making it a memorable experience. The main ingredients are Deep-sea Dotted Rainbow Fish, Starry Night Blue Lobster, and Bok-choy. The Starry Night Blue Lobster is the rarest of the lot, and it needs to be caught on a clear night in a sea reflecting the stars.

[Speak to Fisherman again]

Fisherman: Did you ask? How to make Pirate's Delight?

[Answer B]

Fisherman: So what ingredients are needed for the Pirate's Delight?

[Answer B]

Fisherman: How do I catch a Starry Night Blue Lobster?

[Answer B]

Fisherman: Alright, so I need to catch fish and lobster, and then steal, er... 'borrow' some vegetables, and I can make it myself. Okay, let's get going. I'll take you myself.

[Arrive at dock]

Lorsan: The Musical Rose, Kingpin, Pop Prodigy... No wonder I've not been able to reach you, you've been here rehearsing!

The Musical Rose: That just leaves the Soul Singer. Don't forget, we're invited to the banquet this year!

Soul Singer: Of course I've not forgotten!
