I can confirm that this is the same text as at http://page.freett.com/naknak/game/ps/k ... /m061.html , to which a tentative translation has been provided in this thread. There are some possible clues to punctuation that might have been omitted in the screens, however.

I've transcribed the text below, for easier tackling by a translator willing to give it a try (a somewhat improved translation is interspersed below, please see the thread linked to above for notes, however):

きくがよい!
われらは パルマという ほしの まつえい…
* Hark!
We are descendants of the planet Palma...

かつて、アルゴルたいようけいちゅう、もっとも
うつくしく かがやくと いわれた パルマ…
Palma, the most beautiful and shining [world] in the Algol star system...

ひとは、あいするひとから あたえられるものより
おおくを のぞまず
Because they were a loving people, they had a great desire for generosity

あいするひとの のぞむよりおおくを あたえる...
それが よろこびだった、パルマの ひとびと...
A generous, loving people...
They were a happy people, the Palmans...

その パルマじんの まつえいが われらであり
おまえたちでもある…
We are the descendants of those Palmans,
and so, then, are You...

きくがよい!

「じゃあくな ちから」のために
However, every 1000 years with the reappearance of the so called 'Evil Force,'

わが パルマは ほろんでしまった…
our Palma was ravaged...

きくがよい!
われらは パルマという ほしの まつえい…

We are descendants of the planet Palma...

オハリオと アイナが やぶれたことを しり
ひとびとは パルマを すてることにした。
With the defeat of Ohario and Aina, the people realised they had to abandon Palma.

かれらは、400せきもの うちゅうせんを
ひそかに つくりあげた。
In secret, they constructed 400 spaceships.

そして、「じゃあくな ちから」が
パルマを ほろぼす ちょくぜんに
But then the 'Evil Force' obliterated Palma just before

LASER BEAMS OF DEATH!!!

だっしゅつしたのだ…

We are descendants of the planet Palma...

400せきの うちゅうせんは
「じゃあくな ちから」から のがれようとした。
The 400 spaceships fled from the 'Evil Force'.

しかし、「じゃあくな ちから」の いちぶは
すでに われらの ふねに はいりこんでいた。
But a part [or parts] of the 'Evil Force' had already boarded our ships.

そのため、1せき、また1せきと ほろんでゆき
「オラキオとライアの じだい」には 
Because of this, one after the other, they were bound to go under
In the 'Era of Orakio and Laya'

この「アリサ3せい」と、「ネオパルマ」の
2せきだけになってしまった…
our 'Alisa III' and the 'Neopalm,' were the only two ships left...

Back in town...

れきしの かたりべたちの はなしを きくがよい。
You had better listen to what the tellers of history have to say!

ここ、「ひそやかな むら ファウンダウリ」で、
なんじらは、うしなわれた れきしを しるだろう。
Here, in 'the quiet village of Faundauri,' You can learn our lost history.


I've added the for easier cross-referencing with the site mentioned above.

NO GOOD! Now I'm even more confused than I was when I started... 1,000 years ago, Orakio and Laya were killed by Dark Force... HOWEVER

2000ねんまえ
えいゆう オハリオと アイナが
2000 years ago,
the heroes Ohario and Aina


Our theory was that it said 2,000 years ago they LEFT Palma, now, 2000 years ago was this??? WHEN THE HELL DID YOU PEOPLE LEAVE PALMA!?

To me it seems that Ohario and Aina were contemporary to Rolf and co. That is what the compendium says, and what is rumoured to be mentioned in the Ages remake of PS2, according to the the Japanese Wikipedia article on PS3.

Besides, it doesn't say they were killed, just defeated. Though I have nothing but anecdotal evidence and hunches to support it, my theory on that matter is that they were not killed, but were instrumental in organising the evacuation, and eventually ended up on Alisa III (with that name, it is reasonable to assume that it is one of the more important ships, and since they were leaders of the resistance, it would be logical for them to be on that one). They were both of the Sa Riik family, it said somewhere, and also by blood related to Lassic and thus to the Landales. I think that Orakio and Laya are both their descendants -- Laya of Aina, and Orakio of Ohario (or both of both, in case they started a family together).

I don't see nearly enough evidence to back up your theory, but I seriously like it, big time... It makes a lot of sense, and since there is NO information being said of the two, this could be quite possible... I wonder if Aina was a Esper of some sort, as all Layan people are gifted in magic... I also wonder, they said that the lands were wiped clean in the intro of PS3... Perhaps ALL layans are within Aina's family tree, and ALL orakians are within Ohario... I doubt they would had made love (or whatever you guys call it, I call it making love, cause I'm in love) because then, everyone would have a mixture of power, AND magic, like any forth generation character, where even if just a TOUCH of Layan is in them, they have magic, and if even a TOUCH of Orakian is in them, they can use "hero equipment".

NICE theory, I seriously like it, man.

To me, this looks like Ohario and Aina were fighting their own battle on Palma at the time Rolf & co. were doing pretty much the same on Motavia.
Ohario and Aina lived 2000 years before the events of PSIII.
This would mean that the events of PSIII happened 1000 years after PSIV.

I don't see any such reference in the Japanese wiki article, nor do I remember such a reference in the remake itself. Can you give me more details on this?

Thas right, we got more info than the Wiki... Wiki isn't a Phantasy Starologist!

Absolutely! Here is a link directly to the footnote mentioning it:

What do you make of that?

I wasn't questioning your information, which is clearly supported by screenshots, I was questioning the mention of Ohario or Aina in PSG:2.

Ahh, the footnote. I just saw that it mentioned "ファンタシースターII 還らざる時の終わりに" instead of "ファンタシースター generation:2" and figured it was some reference to continuity between the original games. My fault for not reading more closely.

That's interesting though. I don't remember seeing a mention of Ohario in the remake or anyone making a mention of it in the fan community (since some of the people I knew were quite pissed that PSIII was being excluded from the AGES project from the onset, I'm sure one of them would have chimed in at the fan service such a mention would provide), though it's been about 5 years since I played through. Maybe it's time for another play through (I still need to revive Nei anyway)...
