20: Ciel's morning[edit]

MAP: Ciel's house
 DESCRIPTION: Living room + kitchen, bathroom, bedroom; Ciel is taking a shower
 SE: shower
 TV Announcer: "Well now, le''s have more on the discovery of the so-called Pakra Boson, this sub-atomic particle that is thought to be responsible for giving commonly used quantum bacteria the ability to heal people."
 TV Announcer: "And the best person to explain it to us is in the studio with me, the physicist and professor Mr. Bill Tyson.  Bill it''s great to have you with us."
 Bill: "Thank you"
 TV Announcer: "Why don't you just tell us what has been achieved here."
 Bill: "Well, I think this is the biggest scientific discovery in my lifetime, and it stands with the greatest discoveries of all times; the discovery of quantum bacteria itself, or the discovery of ergoplasma."
 Bill: "And the reason is that even if we very well understood the bio-quantum mechanics that allow us to use quantum bacteria everyday to produce the energy we need to survive, we didn''t use to know how quantum events could scale 
 up to the macroscopic world."
 TV Announcer: "To put it simply, it worked, but we didn't know why."
 Bill: "Precisely.  And this theory has been around since the 30s, when we found out that it was possible to produce quantum events from biological entities such as bacteria."
 Bill: "But only by the discovery of the Pakra Boson, theorized more than 30 years ago by professor Jovitz Pakra, have we been able to prove that controversial topics such as quantum healing are indeed just the result of synced 
 quantum events."
 TV Announcer: "So, how will this knowledge be applied?"
 Bill: "In a certain sense it already is, the fact that today you can go to a hospital with a broken leg and get repaired in a couple of minutes... well if I told you that a hundred years ago you''d have thought it''s science 
 fiction or that I'm high.  Ha ha..."
 TV Announcer: "Ha ha..."
 SE shower stop
 SE: change clothes
 Ciel walks into living room
 CAMERA to Ciel  

 TV Announcer: "Moving on.  A scientific study from the Yon Johlonn University of Arkroym shows that buying more generally improves your well-being.  Not that we needed to be told that anyway, ha ha ha..."
 Ciel shuts off the TV
 Ciel: "..."
 Ciel: "...what a whole load of crap."

MAP: Cave #1
 DESCRIPTION: A series of underground tunnels and natural rooms.
 BGM: Mysterious Music
 AMBIENT SOUND: Dripping Water

 CAMERA centered on the starting room
 WAIT 10 seconds
 Lars jumps on the room from above and looks around. 

 Lars: "It's safe, come."

 Sean jumps on the room next to Lars.

 Sean: "Are you sure this isn't another dead end?"

 Lars: "This is the right one, I feel it!"

 Sean: "This makes the third time you say that."

 Lars: "But this time it's true!"

 Sean: "Sigh... Whatever, let's go!"


 Dungeon Exploration Phase, monster is blocking the way
 event: battle with monster blocking the way (mandatory)
 Battle starts

 Lars: "Watch out, a monster!"

 Sean: "Oh thanks! I hadn't noticed!"

 Sean: "More importantly, you do remember how to fight, right?"

 Lars: "Who do you think you're talking to?"

 Lars: "I'm Lars Grandal! The greatest Tech Hunter you'll ever find in Mordia!"

 Sean: "Yes of course, oh great Tech Hunter. How about you just shut up and *attack*?"

 Battle resumes
 event: 3 turns passed without Spirit Command

 Sean: "Hey, why don't you use that Spirit of yours?"

 Lars: "Nah, we're good. This one's a weakling."

 Sean: "We don't have all day, just finish it quickly."

 Sean: "You do remember how to *summon* a Spirit, right?"

 Lars: "Is that some kind of joke? You keep talking as if I've never fought before."

 Sean: "I can only pray that your ability to find lost Technology isn't as bad as your ability to discern sarcasm."

 Lars: "Man, have some faith!"

 Forced choice: summon

 event: summon command issued

 Lars: "Alright Geb! Unleash your might against this foe!"

 Text: "Spirits are powerful beings that can execute special attacks."

 Text: "Special attacks are triggered by inputing a precise sequence of buttons."

 Text: "Try *Left* *Right* *A* *A* *Right* to make Geb execute the special ability *Spark*."

 -- Battle resumes

 Battle resumes
 event: Failed to execute Spark command.

 Sean "What are you doing? Did you actually forget how to use a Spirit? For real?"

 Battle ends.

 Lars: "Good job, Geb! Did you see that, Sean?"

 Sean: "Hmph, Finally!"

 Lars: "Still, why are there always monsters lurking around Lost Technology?"

 Sean: "There's nothing surprising about that. Many monsters shun daylight."

 Sean: "So you're very likely to find them underground where incidentally Lost Technology lies."

 Sean: "Do you have any other stupid questions you want answered?"

 Lars: "Yeah, why did I accept to let you tag along again?"

 Sean: "Hmph! You needed my help."

 Lars: "Did I?"

 Sean: "Yes, because there are always monsters lurking around Lost Technology."

 Lars: "... Good point."

 Text: "You can find which abilities your Spirits can use and the related button sequences under Main Menu -> Spirit."

 Monster Encounters can now happen
 event: zone to next map

 MAP2: Underground Lost Technology Ruins
 DESCRIPTION: This maps features a mix of Rocky tunnels and ruined High Tech metal tunnels and rooms.

 BGM: Mysterious Music

 CAMERA centered on the starting room which features Ruins.
 Sean and Lars already inside.
 Lars and Sean look around

 Lars: "Look! I told you! We've found it!"

 Lars: "This must be the Research Center that we were looking for."

 Sean: "Hmm... I'm still not sure. These are remnants of the old civilization, no doubt."

 Sean: "But is this really the Research Site 42?"

 Lars: "Wheter it is or not, this is a great find. I've rarely seen ruins in such a great condition before."

 Sean: "Let's keep exploring."
 Dungeon Exploration resumes
 event Main Frame Room reached.

 CAMERA slowly moves toward the Main Frame.
 After a few seconds Lars and Sean enter inside the view again and look around. 

 Lars: "This is... this is simply UNBELIAVABLE!"

 Lars: "Look! Have you seen something like this before? This is amazing!"

 Sean: "Yeah... yeah it is..."

 Lars walks near a console and starts pressing buttons.

 Lars: "It works! It's still functioning! This is the Main Frame of the ancient research facility and it still works!"

 Lars: "Ten thousand years and it's still functioning! WOOOHAAA!! Look at this! Look at this!"

 Sean slowly walks away toward another exit.

 Lars: "Oh for all the gods! We can access all the research data! The knowledge of the ancients that we thought lost forever!"

 Lars: "Uh? What's this? A security password? Not gonna stop me now! Just give me some time!"


 Lars: "There you go! Cracked! Piece of cake! Hey Sean, look at this, there's a detailed explanation on how to create energy packs."

 Lars: "With this data we might even be able to produce them in a few years."


 Lars: "Oh no, damn! It looks like the memory support is damaged, we won't be able to recover all the data, but still, this is the greatest finding to date."

 Lars: "What we have here is invaluable, I can't wait to report this to the elders of Sonalum."

 Lars: "What do you think, Sean?"

 Lars finally turns around and looks left and right.

 Lars: "Sean? Where the hell did you go?"

 Lars: "How strange... how could he simply walk away when there was such a treasure in front of us. That's really not like him."

 Lars: "Anyway I should copy as much data as I..."

 Cedrine enters through the emergency door.
 Cedrine: "There you are.  Are you okay?"
 Cedrine approaches Ciel.
 Ciel: "I'm all right, thank you.  I found a monster like that one in my lab and I had to take it down."
 Cadrine: "Take it d... You did that by yourself?"
 Ciel: "Yeah."
 Cedrine: "Impressive! I didn't know your fighting skills were already... "
 Ciel: "Do we know each other?"
 Cedrine: "Oh I'm sorry, just call me Cedrine."
 Ciel: "Okay Cedrine.  My name is..."
 Cedrine: "Ciel Bailey!"
 Ciel: "<I didn't know I was famous...>"
 Cedrine: "So, looks like we have some problems."
 Ciel: "Where do those creatures come from?  Did they escape from the other labs?"
 Cedrine: "I doubt so, the labs where mutants are experimented are in a completely different area and they would have never passed the security check to get here."
 Ciel: "..."
 Ciel: "Should we head for the rally point?"
 Cedrine: "Let's do that.  But first we have to take care of the other monsters."
 Ciel: "Wait, just how many other of these monsters are around?"
 Cedrine: "Difficult to say, but there's at least one every floor."
 Cedrine: "There might be people in danger. We have to clear the floors before getting out."
 Cedrine: "Together, we have a better chance of defeating them all. Let's proceed the two of us."
 Ciel: "Sounds good to me."
 Cedrine: "So, here's the plan:"
 Cedrine: "Using the emergency stairs, we will clear the monster on each underground floor in succession."
 Cedrine: "Then we will proceed to the main exit through the ground floor."
 Cedrine: "Let's get moving!"

 BGM: Kinda high-tension exploration music

 Event: Exit through emergency door

 Ciel: "Cedrine?"
 Cedrine: "Yes?"
 Ciel: "I was wondering.  Have you ever seen monsters like those before?"
 Cedrine: "Actually no.  Why?"
 Ciel: "It's weird... "
 Ciel: "Creatures of that size... Wandering around this area..."
 Ciel: "I've never seen them before.  So after defeating the one in my lab, I run a search with my computer."
 wait 5 seconds
 Ciel: "I couldn't find any record of such creature in the whole mutants database..."
 wait 3 seconds
 Cedrine: "They must be some new types of mutant coming from the wild."
 Ciel: "But, there's more."
 Cedrine: "Hmm?"
 Ciel: "Their attacks... "
 Ciel: "Mutants abilities, like ours, come from ergoplasma."
 Cedrine: "Quantum bacteria, right?"
 Ciel: "Yes."
 Ciel: "And as you know we must concentrate in order to effectively use our skills."
 Ciel: "But those monsters seemed capable of repeating abilities over and over, without any loss in strength... "
 Cedrine: "..."
 Ciel: "It's like they are using something else... something very different..." 

 Text with fade: "Ciel: But yet very powerful... "

 Three new monsters appear and surround Lars.

 Lars: "Come on, Lars. You've gotten out of worse situations before. Think!"

 Lars: "On a second thought... that might not be the greatest idea..."


 Battle starts
 event: Battle ends.
 Two new monsters appear and surround Lars.

 Lars: "Is there no end to them?"

 Lars: "I can't even try to find another escape route, they pretty much cornered me..."

 Lars: "Well now, since I'm completely without options..."

 Lars: "This would be just the perfect time for unexpected reinforcements to arrive!"

 A third bigger monster appears.

 Lars: "And of course reinforcement arrived..."

 Lars: "For the enemy..."


 Battle starts
 The new monster is pretty much undefeatable at the current level.
 event: Lars is about to die or 10 turns have passed.

 Lars: "*Pant* *Pant*..."

 Lars: "The hell was that... that..."

 Lars: "No... he may have looked human but he was definitely something else..."

 Lars gets up and looks at the monsters

 Lars: "The monsters... the monsters are scared?! They are supposed to be incapable of feeling fear!"

 Lars: "Anyway... I... I better get out of here..."

 Lars runs away from the opened path.
