Guild Wars (2005 Video Game)
Prince Rurik of Ascalon: As a boy I spent much time in these lands. Look at them now. Instead of ponds and streams we have pools of bubbling tar and rivers of sludge. It saddens me to see Ascalon in ruins.
Justiciar Hablion - Male Hero: My friends! I am happy you made it in time for the testing of the chosen. This is the Eye of Janthir. It has the power to see inside a person and discern his or her magical aptitude. You will be taking it on to Loamhurst. Those who show promise will get to study with the Grand Masters at the Temple of the Unseen. But first you must bathe yourselves in the Fountain of Truth up on the hill to the southeast. Return here once you have been cleansed.
Vizier Khilbron: Ah, the Scepter of Orr. Many thanks. You have taken a tremendous risk to deliver this artifact. Now I shall return the favor.
[Summons a band of undead creatures]
Vizier Khilbron: Fear not the walking dead. They are our allies.
Ritual Priest Nahtem: Just as the crystal was in shards and scattered, so were my brothers. It destroyed us in the end. In death we can reclaim the glory of the Gods.
Narrator: [First lines] The last day dawns on the Kingdom of Ascalon. It arrives with no fanfare, no tolling of alarms. Those who will remember, will speak fondly of the warm morning breeze. People carry on with their daily lives, unaware that in a short while... everything they have ever known will come to an end.
King Adelbern of Ascalon: Scribe.
Ascalon Scribe: Yes, my Lord.
King Adelbern of Ascalon: These Charr are relentless, but we shall hold the Wall at all costs.
Ascalon Scribe: Yes, my Lord.
King Adelbern of Ascalon: Take this message to Sir Tydus: Go forth and recruit the strongest, the smartest. Bring to me the bravest in all of Ascalon. Find me the heroes who will lead our kingdom to glory.
Ascalon Scribe: As you command, my king.
Prince Rurik of Ascalon: [Trumpets sound in the distance] Trumpets! The king must be near. The fall of Rin will have darkened his heart.
[King Adelbern approaches]
Prince Rurik of Ascalon: Hail King Adelbern!
King Adelbern of Ascalon: Rise my son. You have done well. The discovery of Stormcaller is surely a sign of victory.
Prince Rurik of Ascalon: Is is a powerful weapon, but I fear not powerful enough. The Charr have amassed an army of many thousands.
King Adelbern of Ascalon: You overestimate these beasts, Rurik. Do not be afraid.
Prince Rurik of Ascalon: I am not afraid, father. I have seen them in battle. Rin has been destroyed. It would be wise to escape while we can. We should make for Kryta and rebuild our strength. Not wait here for death.
King Adelbern of Ascalon: I will never allow Ascalons to live in the shadow of the Krytans! It is Rin that will be rebuilt. And you will learn your place.
Prince Rurik of Ascalon: You have grown proud, Adelbern of Ascalon... proud and foolish!
King Adelbern of Ascalon: You would dare call your king a fool? I will hear no more! I banish you from Ascalon! You are no longer my prince, and you are no longer my son!
Prince Rurik of Ascalon: People of Rin! Your king will lead you to death. If you wish to see better days, if you wish to live, then leave the beasts behind and follow me over the Shiverpeaks. We make for Kryta and a new life, free of the Charr.
Dagnar Stoneplate: Your punishment for trespassing is death.
Mage: As long as I control this OBELISK, it will strike any foe who venture near.
Jamei: Mhenlo! Ah, my good friend, it is excellent to see you. Your timing is almost fortunate. Give me a hand with these things, would you?
[Party kills a group of the Afflicted]
Jamei: Thank you so much for your help. These vile creatures are everywhere. It seems no place is safe. Perhaps with your help, my friend, all that can change.
Brother Mhenlo: Jamei... it's been too long.
Jamei: Mhenlo... I came as soon as I heard you were expected. It is so good to see you.
Cynn: That's Jamei? Mhenlo, he's a GIRL! All those stories about your old friend growing up, and you never told me...
Brother Mhenlo: You never asked, Cynn, and I don't see that it matters.
Jamei: Ah, the stories. There are so many, eh, Mhenlo? I swear, it seems looking back that there was not a day we were apart.
Cynn: Not a day apart? Listen lady, he may not be much, but that Monk is mine! Don't even think about it!
Brother Mhenlo: Now Cynn, calm down...
Jamei: Oh, Mhenlo! You got yourself a little girlfriend! How... sweet.
Cynn: "Little girl"? Lady, this "little girl" will show you big pain if you're not careful...
Jamei: Yes, I imagine you give Mhenlo quite a pain...
Aidan: Mhenlo has his hands full, doesn't he?
Devona: Cynn has an amazing ability to make friends, doesn't he?
Brother Mhenlo: Cynn, Jamei, please. We have important matters to deal with and we must work together.
Jamei: Mhenlo is right. Let us focus on our task. You all came to Cantha to help us fight this plague. We must find Master Togo and learn how you can best aid this effort. Master Togo awaits us inside the city. Let's go.
