Unused Text

Hmmm...
To do:
Organize them into sub-sections.

There is a smattering of text decodable from the dialogue files that does not seem to appear anywhere in game, including descriptions for cut mechanics. These are cut from the dumped script.



PETRA

Well then let her  FATHER  
serve as an example!     
This happens every day! 


<Name Missing>

Bring it to  Elro . 
 
Ivory batteries are what the 
people outside City 1 have 
to get Holy permission to 
use in order to have power 
in their homes. 
 
Ivory grows harder to get.

Exchange this for an  Ivory 
Battery  in the  Church . 
 
Ivory slips are granted 
regularly to countryside 
people. If they behave well 
they may get more, or be 
deprived of one if they don't. 
 
Ivory grows harder to get.


<Name Missing>

They say the highly peculiar Angrock can only 
be broken by a firm  stomping  by jumping with   and 
then pressing    while holding    in mid-air .


<Name Missing, During Laurie Letter Quest>

Bring it to Laurelai's friend in   
House 10 in Settlement 17 . 
 
Is that romance I smell?


<Name Missing>

The  charging of guns  is 
prohibited!   Last time someone 
charged a gun it killed another 
person way more than necessary


<Name Missing, Seems like a note from the developer to himself>

There's still floor missing here!   I've been 
having to  grab the moving nut  with a 
wrench,  not pressing forward  after I do 
to hang onto it, then press  Forward, Jump 
or Down to get off!   Fix this! 


CHEMICO CONTRA
   
If you gather as much as you 
can for us, it could greatly aid 
mankind finding new, more 
efficient power sources! 

CHEMICO CONTRA
  Some may even complete current 
research and give you  Powerups !     
Not me, though.   'Been slacking.


MINA
   
I won't stay here.

MINA
   I'll follow every damn 
sepian hair strand of 
that agent I can find! 

MINA

Pick one...  
 Don't go!  
 Be careful! 

MINA
   
Are you suggesting I just sit 
around here and wait?

MINA
   
Look,   I get it,   you don't know 
her, but you don't understand.

MINA
   
Of course I will.

MINA
   
It's not a choice for me! 

MINA
   
I can find the agent's trail 
without finding the agent.

MINA
  At least that agent 
is afraid now! 

MINA
  I'm getting some things 
from home, and then I'm 
going after her! ! 


<Name Missing>
    Contains some of Mina's  clothes . 
 
She left this suitcase behind 
when she left Isilugar Town. 
 
They're not really your type.
---
<Removed Item Description for RSVP>
    Deliver this to some  soldiers 
not attempting to shoot you , 
I guess...


MINA
   
 Mom always says she worries 
I'm turning into my father.

MINA
   
 She seemed to imply he just got bored of 
life and walked out on the two of us ...  
That was before we were in 
any underwater town.


MINA
   
 "I set out to make this map. 
Humanity will get to see their 
world, and get perspective. 
It will be and must be perfect."


ELRO
   
You act like you think 
I would be shocked.    
I already think they're sinister.

ELRO
   
You're just trying to upset me.    
Calm down.

MINA
   
  Don't you tell me! 

ELRO
  The One Concern has been pushing 
the scripture more than usual on 
us country people, it kinda makes 
it a daily business.

ELRO
   
Dunno why they do, though ...

MINA
   
Why didn't you tell me before, then?! 

ELRO
  I don't know, I don't investigate!     
It's just what's been making more sense.    
If I wanted to investigate, I'm a One 
Concern employee, so they check me 
out more.


MINA
   
 Is it his posture that's worth Samba?    
Is it watching his pretty powers that's 
worth people's safety?! 


ELRO
   ...  I just want to be able to not ...   
think all the time


HIDING GIRL1
   
 What have I done?! 

HIDING GIRL1
   
My hedonistic thoughts and curiosities 
got me to this dank and dirty  
place!    Is this "the outdoors"?    
It's as horrible as the scriptures say! 

HIDING GIRL1
  Now I am too frightened to even 
return!     
 The  Silver Watchman  will have 
me thrashed! 


BLACK
  A big difference is you're 
watched with eyes of contempt 
as your vision fades.


MINA
   
But I think I need to 
say something to you.

SAMBA
  Fine!    Outside! 


<From research notes>
  How can grass be grass, and then 
the next moment a body of water?


POLRO
  Sometimes it's easier not to think.

POLRO
   
You are special.   I want you to be 
better than I am.

POLRO
  Help people with what you have.    
Love others and they'll love you.

POLRO
   
Put the needs of others first.    
That's something I've been 
unable to do.

POLRO
   
I feel there is happiness there.    
If you just help,   things will turn 
out well.

POLRO
  It would make me happy.


MYRON
   
These planet spines, below our feet!     
Those that carry the reprehensible creations 
that destroy lands and homes.

ROYAL
   
The Penance are protectors of salvation, 
guarding people that have to reside near 
those who sin!    Do not slander them! 

MYRON
   
I've become cognizant of many things.    
One of these being rural residences have 
only been founded on spines known to 
the Concern! 

ROYAL
  Well,   of course,   otherwise 
people could not be punished.

MYRON
   
Perhaps you were right, 
you are indeed special.

MYRON
   
These spines.   They exist to define 
the shape of this planet.   It seems 
Ivory depletion has made them act 
unbecoming.

ROYAL
   
  That's not the purpose of the Penance! ! 

MYRON
   
They obstruct my work!    They make invalid 
decades of cartography, by reshaping 
the lands.


ROYAL
    It's a ritual, not execution! ! 

MYRON
   
Clodpole.

ROYAL
   
 Varmint! 

MYRON
   
Gander.

ROYAL
   Whatever ...  guy! ! 


MYRON
 
I have seen much in my excursions!     
Sentience that is not part of 
anybody's scripture! 

MYRON
   
Not the ancestors of the Isi, 
not the doctrine of Mother.

MYRON
   
You likely could not affect that beast 
because its control of Ivory outdoes 
your own.


MYRON
   
I have a theory that this planet 
was built.   What you have power 
over is synthetic! 

ROYAL
   
 You are completely mad! 

ROYAL
   
 So,   who made the machine, then?! 


MYRON
   
Well, I do not know that!     
Isn't that exciting?

ROYAL
   
  So what's even your point?! 

ROYAL
   
Someone created this planet?    
Yes, in fact,  He  did!    For us! 

ROYAL
   
 This was our lovingly crafted home,    
made to save us,   after the demise 
of the world from the Precedes! 

MYRON
   
That legend tells of a world that 
turned to dust.   Matter, deprived 
of Ivory, turns to dust.

MYRON
   
What does humanity deserve?

ROYAL
   
 That's  YOUR  attitude! 

ROYAL
   
 This planet has more Ivory in it 
than any nearby thing in space!     
It generates new Ivory at 
incredible pace!     
This worls is a miracle! 

ROYAL
   
 Like the  moons !    They  lack 
the Spines ,   as you say,   and 
they have worse existances 
for it! 

MYRON
   
So the One Concern DOES  
research the moons! 

MYRON
   
Then, indeed, the Concern Ivory 
these days is likely lunar! 

ROYAL
   
    ......    

MYRON
   
How much do our two peoples truly value 
the revitalizing powers of this 
planet, if they've broken that power 
through so much mining that one 
needs to go elsewhere?

ROYAL
   
  This isn't a machine, damnit! !      
You don't "break" our holy planet!     
It will revive after its  rebirth  
by Nimbus' return! 

MYRON
   
Is this another one of 
your dogmas?


MYRON
   
The effectiveness of Ivory 
likely still makes your  rocket 
launches  viable for that, still!     
How ...  fascinating!


MINA
   
Maybe you need a faith that's not 
so ridiculously strict! 


<Missing Name>

   We need the engineers back in here. 
The materials provided will attach the 
foundation of the new floor at an angle!  
 
We can't attach the floor's foundation 
until this has been fixed, damnit! 


BLACK
   
"I can't use my powers here!     
The evil demons must be 
fiddling with my veins! "

BLACK
   
"Yes, that's it."


MINA
   
You didn't.    
I'm not sure 
how to feel ...


MINA
   
You're somethin' else, Robin.    
I think your kindness and 
attempts at empathy could 
screw with things, though.


MINA
  You relocked the doors on her, huh?    
She'll get out.

TOLO
   
  Ha-HAH!     
This is just 
amazing! 

TOLO
   
  Everything just falls into 
your favor, general!     
It's destiny! 

TOLO
   
With Royal being a sinner, 
it could only mean 
this is all for you! 


BLACK
   
Humans need someone who cares and 
keeps them straight,   or they become 
invisible,   or they become mad


CHEMICO CONTRA
   
It shouldn't be my business to 
share family secrets, but his 
principles are damaging.    
Sorry if that offends you.

CHEMICO CONTRA
   Do you want to hear why 
Elro is being hunted?

CHEMICO CONTRA

Do you... ?  Yes. 
 No.


CHEMICO CONTRA
    ...  Really?   Are you sure?

CHEMICO CONTRA

Consider...  Tell me. 
 Don't tell.

CHEMICO CONTRA
   
Hrm, alright.   I can't insist.

CHEMICO CONTRA
  Alright.   It was a couple weeks ago ...

CHEMICO CONTRA
   
Among many things, 
Elro was upset about 
your  father, Polro ...

CHEMICO CONTRA
   
I ...  I feel he needs a lot 
of help to be honest.

MINA
   
Your brother is ...  quite something.    
I hope you're okay.

MINA
  Suddenly, the gods are mortal, huh?


ROYAL
   
Oh.   Strange.    
I had a feeling he was 
missing parts before.


ROYAL
   
This is it.   We are here.    
We are going to  Him .


MINA
   
I was kind of trying to be on 
this personl "world quest", looking 
for ways to counter the Concern.


ROYAL
   
 It's just being depleted faster than 
it regenerates, still.    
Mostly due to YOUR people harvesting 
Ivory from nearer the planet core! 


MINA
  "Need stealth", my ass


ELITE
  Watch out for softlocks.

Revisional Differences

Text Changes between v1.00 and v1.15

Besides some spelling and formatting, the jokes in the early game stealth section were completely rewritten.

v1.00 v1.15
Did you guys see that bleach 
blonde girl in Settlement 16?
I once heard a joke about paper.
Yeah, I'd love to cheer from 
her bleachers, if you know 
what I mean!
It was tearable!
Hey, there are some sweet girls 
here too, did you see them?
Two people walk into a bar...
I'd let them sweeten the tea from 
my teabag, if you catch my drift! 
They both had concussions!
These broads got nothin' on the 
girl I caught in Settlement 8.
Want to hear a joke 
about construction?
We had a settling night, 
if you see what I'm on about! 
I'm still working on it.
I once took this girl's weaved 
carpet that I liked and she tried 
to hit me!
I was asked to put 
the cat out.
I wish she vacuumed my carpet, 
if you sink my lure! ! 
I didn't know it had 
caught fire!
Speaking of Settlement 8... ! 
Speaking of pet cats... !
 There was this boy with the finest 
sculpted abs I ever did see...
 Mine died the other week.
There was this pirate girl trying to 
steal barrels of water from one of 
our camps, but I caught her.
A friend thought about going 
on an all-pecan diet.
I wanted to plug that barrel! 
That's just nuts!
