- 8000 Meseta
Pioneer 2 city
- This is an urgent request from the council. A big earthquake was confirmed under the surface of Ragol. The size of this quake was similar in power to that of the explosion. An army research team was sent to Ragol to investigate the quake. But they haven't returned yet... The army quickly decided to send hunters to find the lost researchers. The council also decided to send Hunters. [NAME], we want you to go below the surface of Ragol. According to the lab, the epicenter is located far beneath the ruins. Rescue the research team and also report to us on the status of the area. ...... This is a confidential mission. Don't talk about it to anybody.
- This is a confidential mission. Don't talk about it to anybody.
Note: I'm not going to mention it every time there is an earthquake, because there are way too many. But I'll mention the ones that occur together with dialogue.
As you move to enter the first passageway, your character gets surprised.
An earthquake occurs. The view changes to show Takuya and TYPE:O.
- Gee... What a mess... Are you sure there are any survivors here?
- Our top priority is data collection. We have a mission to complete! Right?
- You are so close minded. [TYPE:O walks forward a bit] Hey, wait! I'll do as the boss said... I'll put them away!
Takuya and TYPE:O walk away.
Later, when you're about to enter the passageway before the room in which Takuya and TYPE:O are, the view changes to Takuya and TYPE:O, who walk a short distance before stopping.
- Hmm...? What's this? [gets stuck in yellow lightning] Ahhhh! He... Help mee...
- Hey, I told you to quit joking around! [TYPE:O turns around, and is then also stuck in yellow lightning] !!!
When you approach Takuya and TYPE:O, you see both of them lying on the floor before they disappear in a white fog.
When you walk through the next passageway, your character gets surprised again.
- ...something... inside...me...
- It's so cramped here... 100 years...
- ...... !!
You see white fog engulfing Gizel, and both disappear before monsters appear.
When you walk through the passageway that leads to the big room, the screen zooms in on Nadja, who takes a few steps towards you.
- What...? Where am I... .... who are...you... ...? [your character walks toward her] What...? You came....to save me? Where am I...? I can't remember... We all fell down, and... [white fog envelops her] Yes...heard the voice... What? Oh, yes...please take me back home...
- When we arrived here, there were no traces of the research team... One of us started acting strange... and we heard a voice...beneath us. Are you listening to me?
- COME CLOSER... ...COME...I... EVOLVE... [white fog envelops Nadja again]
- But I hear nothing anymore. Hey, are you really listening to me?
- MYSELF... [white fog envelops Nadja]
- What??? Did you say something? [the white fog disappears]
- Wouu... [a lot of white fog appears around Nadja] ...! Stop! Stop that! Don't come near me! Noooooo!!
The white fog disappears while an earthquake occurs, only to come back briefly as she attacks you.
When you have killed all the enemies in the room and defeated Nadja, she disappears in white fog.
- Who is it? Are you from Pioneer 2? I'm Ash, a hunter! I'm here because the army was asking for help! [pauses] !!!
An earthquake occurs as monsters appear. Ash joins you.
Kill all the enemies in the room.
- You...! Hey, do you remember me? It's me, Ash! You saved me that time. I've trained myself to be tougher since then. Do I look different? [pauses] ...Are you... are you still normal? Huh? !! [an earthquake occurs] Here is... Hey, why are you here? The research team? Oh, they were all killed. I found evidence of it. I saw a strange machine near the monument. It's what caused the quake. If you're going there, let me go with you. I want to become strong like you. You're my role model now. I want to prove to you that I'm better now. Let's go!
When you enter the monument room...
When you arrive at the warp that teleports you to the monument...
Arrive at the monument. An earthquake occurs.
- It's vibrating... Is it reacting to this monument? I think these monsters are strange... The more that are killed, the stronger the next monsters become... It seems like something is controlling them. They just come at us as if they were soldiers ordered to do so... ...... Yes... these unending monsters are fighting to protect something. Did this machine find something significant? ......
Access the terminal.
- It's not working...
- ...... Was it examining this monument? Perhaps it happened to touch something sealed in this ruin... Earthquake, panicked guys, monsters... Anyway, let's copy the data and then turn it off.
- Got Monument Data! Machine stopped...
Access the terminal again.
- It's not working...
When you cross the room before the warp that teleports you to the monument, Ash speaks.
- ...... Can you go on ahead? I'll go look for any survivors.
Ash leaves you.
