There is 1 crystal chest and 10 gold chests to collect.

Background

Sunsetton is a fairytale town with fertile soil and bountiful harvests located on the southern fringe of the Black Woods.

More fabled than the town itself is the local Captain of the Guard, Snault. He was an upstanding and brave soldier possessing incorruptible faith. He was once Hogan's loyal subordinate, but because of his excessive integrity, Snault came to offend many people. In a military power purge, Snault was transferred far from the garrison, and has since been Captain of the guard at the town of 'Sunsetton'. Snault is not only a great friend to Lucius, but also a faithful believer. Since childhood, the Divine Light shone favor upon their friendship. Thus, having heard news of Snault's apparent disappearance, Lucius summoned all his courage to request that he accompany General Hogan on his investigation in Sunsetton.

Transcript

[Start of level]

Lucius: General, we've arrived. Sunsetton is just ahead.

Hogan: Right. Snault is my former subordinate, you and I both know his character full well. Six months ago he suddenly cut contact with the Temple, so we're here to figure out what's going on.

Lucius: I've no clue on his current status... First thing's first, we should find him and speak with him.

Game Log: I have come with General Hogan to Sunsetton to track down a comrade that's been out of touch, Guard Captain Snault.

[Defeat first enemy camp]

Hogan: The town is nearby, I never expected a Graveborn ambush so close... Seems this is not going to be an easy ride, Lucius.

Lucius: General, did you come running because you'd already surmised this would be the case?

Hogan: Just an inkling. When you've a lot of experience, even the slightest whiff is detected from a distance. Snault is a fine lad, and supremely capable, but he's got a tendency to jump the gun... His over-eagerness has always worried me.

[Speak to Scout Post]

Sunsetton Guard: Thank you! I was sure I was a goner... Without the Captain around, everyone's struggling with the Graveborn...

Lucius: This Captain you speak of, he wouldn't be called Snault, would he?

Sunsetton Guard: Huh? How'd you know? Do you know the Captain?

Lucius: We're from the Temple. Snault hasn't been in contact with us for six months, so we're here to investigate.

Sunsetton Guard: So that's how it is. We've been searching, too... The Captain suddenly disappeared one day, not a hint of warning he would. Even his nearest and dearest don't know where he'd gone.

Hogan: We'll take a look around town, please lead the way.

Sunsetton Guard: Sure. Please, help us out here. After the Captain vanished, the whole town's been on edge, and now even the Priest is going out of his mind.

Game Log: We rescued a young soldier just outside town. According to his description, the situation in the town may be worse than we anticipated.

[Speak to the Smithy]

Mysterious Witch: Snault, that fool...

Sunsetton Guard: This peculiar woman has been lurking nearby for a long time, and even though the town is on the verge of collapse, she still sticks around.

Lucius: Madam, you mentioned Snault a moment ago, do you have any idea where he went?

Mysterious Witch: I don't know where he is, but... I do know how to end his suffering. Bring me "Unlife Essence" and a "Stone of Rot", I'll repay you with a gift.

Game Log: The mysterious witch asked us to bring her Unlife Essenence and the Stone of Rot. She was vague and seemed to know something about Snault, but wouldn't elaborate.

[Speak to Church]

Insane Priest: ...Hah, the Divine Light... The Divine Light can't save us now, don't you realize?

Sunsetton Guard: He's deranged.

Insane Priest: Well, don't you? Once the sun goes down and darkness falls, death will bring our salvation!

Lucius: Have you any clue about Snault's whereabouts?

Insane Priest: Snault? Who's Snault? ...Isn't that him there?

Game Log: The priest is crazy, mumbling about "a ray of hope", mentioning "amulet" and "token". What do these things have to do with Snault's whereabouts?

[Speak to Military Maintenance Dept.]

Military Maintenance Engineer: Thank the gods for your help, I thought I was surely going to die...

Game Log: We saved serveral maintenance engineers from a Graveborn ambush. With their help, the Battering Rams outside the city were repaired.

[Search Floating Chest]

Sunsetton Guard: What's this?

Lucius: Don't touch it, it's imbued with a potent unlife essence, it can corrupt human minds.

Hogan: ...It would appear that it was deliberately dumped in the lake and barricaded to keep it out of reach.

Game Log: Obtained: [Stone of Rot], can be used to craft [Felblade].

[Search Ruins]

Lucius: (Grubby token discovered)

Sunsetton Guard: This is the Captain's token... How did it get here?

Lucius: Whatever the reason, Snault must have come here. Everything here is undead, so what is he doing here?

Game Log: Obtained: [Captain's Token], can be used to craft [Purification Stone].

[Speak to Command Center]

Sunsetton Guard: This is where the command center used to be... and where the Captain lived. People rarely come here since the Captain vanished.

Lucius: (Notebook discovered) This is... Snault's handwriting. "...This is the ninth wave of Graveborn we've repelled this year... Without support, my men and I can't hold out any longer... I have no choice now but to take a risk... If the legend of that mountain treasure is true, there's a chance I can turn things in our favor... hopefully."

Hogan: Mountain treasure? What... Soldier, where are the supplies and reinforcements the army allocated to Sunsetton? Didn't they arrive?

Sunsetton Guard: No... We saw hide nor hair of any reinforcements...

Hogan: As my subordinate, Snault often rubbed folks the wrong way, he was too by-the-book for a lot of people. I never imagined that those same people would be unwilling to send him aid after he transferred to the sticks. That's just going way too far!

Lucius: (Silver Amulet discovered) A Divine Light amulet. There's no way he'd have abandoned this... He must've been frantic... He'd lost faith in the Divine Light, that's why he put his hopes in some mountain treasures!

Insane Priest: They both bear the burden of Snault's past. Perhaps... we try one last time.

Game Log: We found Snault's notebook in the command center. His disappearance seems related to finding treasure. But is it real? Can it truly help Snault's efforts? Suppose it's the truth and the treasure is real, why then would he not return?

Game Log: Obtained: [Divine Light Amulet], can be used to craft [Purification Stone].

Game Log: With the Insane Priest's help, we've obtained the mystrical [Purification Stone].

Game Log: There's an irregularity over at the mountain cabin. We're ready to investigate.

[Speak to Dwellings]

Lucius: (The refugees who had fled to this place from neighboring villages became mindless Graveborn, howling dreadfully as they lunged at everyone).

Sunsetton Guard: How can this be... All the people the Captain and his men died protecting... They're here...

Lucius: Unlife essence has totally consumed this place. Get back friend, you should leave, everyone here is now Graveborn... But I've yet to discern if they chose to be.

Hogan: Make it snappy, Lucius. The sun's about to set and the odds are not in our favor.

[Defeat both camps]

Game Log: Obtained: [Unlife Essence], can be used to craft [Felblade].

[Speak to Smithy]

Mysterious Witch: The sun will set and darkness will cover everything. Well then, we'd best gather more firewood. Is this what you need? (The Mysterious Witch hands you the crafted sword). Have fun.

Game Log: With the help of the Mysterious Witch, we were granted a powerful sword.

[Arrive at final boss camp]

Lucius: Even though the other party has become an evil spirit, Lucius still found traces of their former friend).

Snault: (Snault lets out a gutteral growl, all traces of his humanity long since gone).

Sunsetton Guard: Captain?

Hogan: Snault.

Insane Priest: I knew all along that mysterious necromancer was up to no good! 'Mountain treasure' my foot! It was a stone that corrupts souls! All along his aim was to propagate necromancy, he concocted that legend to draw people in. Only a fool like you would believe such baseless nonsense... By the Divine Light above, Snault, awaken!

[Defeat Camp]

Lucius: (The Purification Stone seems to have some effect).

Snault: (As the Unlife Essence dissipates slightly, Snault regains a glimmer of lucidity). As long as I'm here, darkness will find no foothold in this town...

Sunsetton Guard: Captain?

Hogan: Snault.

Snault: General... I'm so sorry. And Lucius, I never thought that our next meeting would be under such circumstances...

Game Log: It's still not clear to me exactly what Snault endured. The Divine Light... Snault... Who abandoned who first? The Mysterious Witch told me the "mountain treasure" is just a ruse concocted by a necromancer... A ruse that Snault chose to believe, in his moment of despair. Desperate to protect the town, Snault accepted power at the cost of his humanity... He succeeded for a time, until the corruption robbed him of his sanity.

[End]
