Story

Ketto Field

Making their way through another dark cave (with another monster battle, but again, not important) the force comes across a confrontation between devils and centaurs.

Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Well...ah....
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
I...uh...
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

The green-skinned fellow questions Higins' (the mustached centaur's) bravery.

Centaur Man

You, shut up! Mr. [Higins]is the b
ravest soldier in
the world!

Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Shut up! Mr. [Higins] is
the bravest soldier in the

Higins

Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Stop that!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
I can defend myself.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Come on.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Come on, you half-breed!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Are you afraid of me?
I'll turn my back on you.
Now, run you coward!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Are you afraid of me?
I'll turn my back to you.
Now, run away you cowards!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Centaur Man
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
That's the end of my
patience!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
June Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
You've gone to far!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
You've gone too far!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

The centaur charges at the demon, but he quickly teleports away. Taking advantage of the confusion, the lizardman bodyguard quickly dispatches of the centaur.

Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Pacalon soldiers are
cowards they attack while
my back is turned!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Pacalon soldiers have no
honor. They attack while
my back is turned!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Centaur Man
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
If Mr. [Higins] was not
ill, you'd be beaten up!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
If Mr. [Higins] was not
ill, you'd be history!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
In that case, you can beat
us up instead.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
June Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
In that case, you can try
and take me.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
In that case, you can try
and take me.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

A second centaur tries to charge the demon, but a gargoyle blindsides him before he can make strike.

Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
You're not just a small
devil soldier.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
You're not just a normal
devil soldier.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Mr. Green Genes confirms Higins' suspicions.

Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
I know you're the leader ofthe P
acalon Army.
I'm an adviser for Zeon,
Geshp!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
I see why you're the leader
of the Pacalon Army.
I'm Geshp! An adviser for
Zeon!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
How did you know I was
Higins?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
How did you know my name?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Geshp retorts that he knows everything. What a jerk.

Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Now, tell me the reason
why you still keep me
alive?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Now, tell me the reason why
you're keeping me alive.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Geshp compliments the intelligence of his question as a demon appears behind Higins, possessing him.

Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Ah...I...can't...!
My body won't move...
what's this?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
I...can't...!
My body won't...
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Ha, ha! Welcome, our
new leader!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Ha, ha! Welcome our new
leader!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Higins falls to the ground as Astral calls from off-screen.

Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Who's there?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Who said that?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Geshp chooses this moment to spot the force.

Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
A group from the south?
No way!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
A force from the south?
How?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Astral tells Geshp they came from Granseal. That doesn't seem smart, but whatever.

Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Is the tunnel open now?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
But, that's on the other....
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
OK, I'd better leave....
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
I'd better leave...
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Geshp
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Devil soldiers! Stop that
group from Granseal!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Devil soldiers! Stop that
force from Granseal!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

The force from Granseal stops the devil soldiers.

Afterwards, Astral, Peter, and Bowie examine Higins' unconscious form.

PeterP
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Is he all right?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Is he alright?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
We have to save him before
he's possessed by evil...
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
We have to save him before
he's possessed by an evil...
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Astral pulls out his signature dispossession spell. The demon goes into its death throes for a bit before exploding.

Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
...Who is it?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
What happened?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Ah...I was almost controlled
by that terrible devil.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Ah...I was almost possessed
by that devil.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
May I ask you...where were
you going with such a
wounded body?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
May I ask you, where were
you going in such a wounded
state?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Pacalon, my country, is
now fighting against the
devils.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Pacalon, my country. We
are fighting against the
devils.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

But, as Higins says, no country in North Parmecia has enough power to resist them...

Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
So, I was going to the
south to look for some
supporters.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
So, I was heading south to
find some allies.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
PeterP
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Oh, you don't have to go
go any further.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
You don't have to go any
further.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Then...you're from South
Parmecia?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Then, you're from South
Parmecia?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Oh, I'm lucky...please
come with me to Pacalon!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Oh, how lucky! Please
come with me to Pacalon!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Ah, but the party needs to visit Tristan first...

Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Oh, please...I can't return
to Pacalon until I bring
back a supporting army!
OK, I'll go with you.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Oh, please...I can't return
to Pacalon without allies.
Maybe, when you're done...
OK, I'll go with you.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Higins joins the force!

Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
But, you're heavily injured
Mr. [Higins].
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
But, you're injured
Mr. [Higins].
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Higins
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
No problem. I don't know
why, but I feel very good
since that devil left my body.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
No problem. I don't know
why, but I'm much better.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Translation Notes
A small bit of detail was lost here; Higins's demonic possession healed his body.
However that works.

The force heads northeast to Pacalon...

Pacalon Castle

Pacalon has dried up. There hasn't been rain in quite some time, so all of their crops have died. They stop by to see the king, as Higins wanted.

King Pacalon
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
May I ask you a favor?
Please go and save Mitula.
She's in Tristan.
We will be ruined by a
drought long before the
devils destroy us.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
May I ask you a favor?
Please save Mitula.
She's in Tristan.
We will be ruined by the
drought long before the
devils destroy us.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

That's one more objective, at least.

Moun Field

Further north, the force runs into a blockade of demons. Blockademons.

Dark Soldier

Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Where did you come from?
Where are you going?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Where did you come from?
What are you doing here?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Wizard
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Don't you know the
restrictions?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Don't you know about the
restrictions?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Lizardman
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
You'll have to die if
you won't obey us!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Even if you didn't know,
that's just to bad.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Translation Notes
The rewritten line introduced some bad grammar -- "to bad" -- that was left in the final script.

Minutes later, there is no longer a blockade of demons.

Pangoat Valley

Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Wow, what's that?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Wow, look at that?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Astral motions towards a large bridge hanging above a wide river. Worm-like enemies are eating holes through it. Then, a voice cries out! There's a woman on the bridge, surrouned by monsters.

Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Look!
She's stranded at the
middle of the bridge.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Look!
She's stranded on the
bridge.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Translation Notes
She's not in the middle of the bridge, hence the rewrite.
PeterP
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Get away from the bridge
before it falls into the
valley!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Get away from the bridge
before it falls into the
river!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

The woman says she sprained her ankle, the #1 cause of feminine injury in fiction! It's up to Bowie and his crew to stop the worms, wipe out the demons, and save the girl.

So they go do that.

Teen Girl
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Thank you very much.
Excuse me...can you hold
my arm?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
June Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Thank you very much.
Excuse me, will you hold
my arm?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Thank you very much.
Excuse me, will you help
me up?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Translation Notes
Apparently even "hold my arm" was too risque for the following dialogue.

'Bowie starts to walk over, but Astral quickly pushes him aside.

Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
OK, OK, OK! I'll do it.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
NO! I'll do it!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Where are you going?
Tristan is the nearest
town. I think you had better
take a rest there.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
We'll take you with us.
Tristan is the nearest town.
I think you had better rest
there.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

The woman climbs onto Astral's back.

PeterP
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
You're very kind to
beautiful women....
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
You sure are being nice.
Hmm....
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Translation Notes
Another example of Astral's lecherous nature being toned down.

The group starts to head east, but Astral stops them.

PeterP
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
What? You don't want to
go to Tristan?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
What? Don't you want to

Why not?

Teen Girl

Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
It's because of me!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Because of me!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

The girl transforms into a lavender-skinned woman!

Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
[Hero], I came here
to get your Jewel of Evil!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Zeon told us to bring it
to the Ancient Tower.
Was that a lie?
I don't think he told a
lie. He's the King of
kings...
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Zeon told US to bring it to
the Ancient Tower.
He didn't mention you.
And since we've never heard
of you, you're not getting
the jewel!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Translation Notes
Astral's rejection was rewritten from being derisive to being haughty.
Cameela
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
This is not his order.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
No! His orders were...
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
If Zeon find out, you
will be....
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
If Zeon finds out, you will
be...
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Cameela

I know! He'll forgive me
when I bring him that jewel.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
He'll forgive me when I
bring him the jewel.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Cameela's had enough of this and demands the jewel.

Cameela
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Do you want me to kill
this old scholar?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Do you want me to kill this

Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
The jewel can't be removed
from [Hero]'s neck.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Astral asks if she really thinks she can kill him.

Cameela
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
What did you say?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Of course.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Translation Notes
Another rewrite that changes the tone of the line.
Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Haaaaaaa!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
HA!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Astral casts a fireball spell that Cameela barely jumps over.

Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Well done. You dodged my
fire ball.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Well done. You dodged my
fireball.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Cameela
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
What a surprising old
magician!
I didn't think I could
get the jewel so easily.
Ha, ha!
It's gonna be fun!
Astral, [Hero]!
Keep it for a while.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
What a surprising old wizard!
I didn't think I could obtain

Cameela runs back onto the bridge.

Astral
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Wait! Answer my questions.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Wait!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Cameela warns to be careful of Geshp and Zalbard, then jumps off the bridge. What an exit.

PeterP
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Can you please explain
what just happened.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Would you please explain
what just happened?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

By the way, did you here
what she said?
They are all acting on
their own, ignoring Zeon's
orders.
It will be dangerous.
Be careful.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
By the way, did you hear
what she said?
They're all acting on their

It will be dangerous.
We must be careful.
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

And so they walk on, because if they just stood there they wouldn't make much progress at all, would they? No. On to Tristan (Isolde not included).

Area Dialogue

Ketto

Oh, right, Ketto. This town is by the North Cliff exit. Not necessary to progressing the story, but it's interesting at least. The devils have this town under close watch.

Anyway, this guy's complaining about the heat.

Teen Boy
April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
It's unusually hot!
Is Mitula sick as the
rumor says?
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

An old man is incredulous to the nature of the party's visit.

Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
From South Parmecia?

Continuing through this progression of age, this old man isn't "hip" or "with-it" with the latest "news".

The woman minding the item store gives some information on Pacalon, which is now cut off from Ketto.

Mother

Pacalon was a good
customer for us!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
Pacalon was always a good
customer for us!

The devils posted signs around the town before leaving to the east. Three of them were changed in the final script.

Blank.png April Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
It reads...
Spit at church!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
It reads...
Church is closed!
Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png
Translation Notes
It should be readily apparent why this was changed.

Pacalon

Pacalon's army's in a bad way, so the townspeople ask the visiting force for help.

Shining2DialogueBoxBottom.png

Still no devils in the party. Well, Kiwi, possibly, but that's it.

It's been dried up since
the devils appeared.
They must have done something
to the Goddess Mitula!

They came from Nazca
to the north of Moun.
We locked the gate of
Moun to block them.

Final Script
Shining2DialogueBoxTop.png
They came from Nazca, which
is west of Moun.
We locked the gate of Moun
to stop their progress.

Translation Notes
Nazca is west of Moun, not north.

This centaur saw something no mortal was ever meant to see.

I happened to see it!
The princess ate food in
the kitchen one night.
I didn't want to see
such an uncouth princess.

You'll see a route in the

You can get to Tristan by

I committed a sin...
I abandoned the people of
Nazca to protect the
Parmecia Continent.

I committed a sin...
I abandoned the people of
Moun to protect the
Parmecia continent.

Translation Notes
Moun was abandoned, not Nazca. Nazca isn't a town, either.

Just to really hammer it home, this guy reiterates that Moun's gates were, in fact, locked up.

We blocked the invaders
by locking the gate
of Moun.
That means...we abandoned
the people living in
north Parmecia.

Final Script

We blocked the invaders
by locking the gate of Moun.
That means, we abandoned
the people living there.

Translation Notes
No, you abandoned Moun! The rest of North Parmecia is fine.
Don't these fictional characters know anything about this made-up video game location?!
