Scenario 3: The Blademaster with Sad Eyes

The portion of the Rigüler Imperial Army led by Field Marshal Altemüller which had captured the “floating fortress” used this fortress to exact tributary payment from Larcuss's capital city, Larcussia; as a result, Larcuss Kingdom was virtually ruined.

But, Diehärte, Tiaris, and Layla, having made good their escape to the heart of Viscount Raymond's feudal domain, muster troops there, polish their strategy to retake the kingdom's capital, and bide their time for a counterattack. Now, half a year has passed since the fall of the floating fortress; the troops are in order, and the day for carrying out the plan has come.

Scenario 4: General Geier

Having won the heart of the powerful ally called “Blademaster Gilbert,” Diehärte heads towards the land of Baron Torrand. Along the way, on a mountain road he notices citizens of Larcuss being harried by General Geier and the Imperial Army.

Diehärte, having joined up with Luna, daughter of the genius tactician Baron Torrand, in order to execute the cunning plan given by the Baron, have come between the forces of the Rigüler Empire and Barral Kingdom on their national border.

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte

Scenario 7: Mountain Pass Reunion

Conditions for Victory:

  • Defeat of Flaire

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte

Scenario 8: Lushiris Gate

In times long past, Lushiris Gate was built in order to guard against demonic invasion. Gates were built in all four directions to complement the power of the Gate. At the time when war broke out, it seems that its functionality was interrupted; the seal binding the demons is growing increasingly weaker.

The moment when Lushiris Gate would need to be restored, to forestall the coming demonic offensive, was quickly approaching. So, the party has travelled to the southern gate in order to meet its warden, Sophia. But enemies are also seeking her and have made preparations against the arrival of Diehärte and company.

Conditions for Victory:

  • Defeat of Do Kahni

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte

Scenario 9: Shaman Attack

Sophia, Warden of the Southern Gate, has been taken away by the Shika Tribe. Moreover, it is said that she will be used as the sacrifice in a ceremony. As it stands, not only can she not reinstate the Gate, but also her own life is in danger. The party has set foot in the mountain region, but have seen no signs of life in the viscinity of the Shika Tribe's headquarters.

Conditions for Victory:

  • Complete destruction of enemies

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte

Scenario 10: Ceremony of Scorching Heat

While Viscount Raymond fights with General Bortz, General Geier sallies forth to snatch away the capital of occupied Laffel. At about the same time, Diehärte and company, having defeated both Do Kahni and Ka Shind, have finally set foot in the cave which serves as headquarters for the Shika Tribe. Tonight is precisely the night of the full moon, when the ceremony is set to take place….

Conditions for Victory:

  • Defeat of Keh Shikairo within 19 turns

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte
  • Death of Sophia

Scenario 11: Spectral Lady

Now that the party has rescued Sophia from being sacrificed by the Shika Tribe and Sophia has joined up, Diehärte and company head towards the eastern gate. However, in the forest ahead, there is a suspicious-looking shadow which always follows them yet shies away from human contact.

Conditions for Victory:

*Rescue of NPC

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte
  • Death of NPC

Scenario 12: Sage Fauvel

Now that Diehärte and company have defeated Ferakia, Demon General of Velzerla, their path leads directly to the eastern gate, governed by Sage Fauvel. But precisely when the party comes into sight of the eastern gate, Imperial soldiers invade.

  • Destroy all enemies in 14 turns

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte
  • Death of Fauvel
  • Time up

Scenario 13: Holy Beast

Diehärte's independent force, now bolstered by the addition of Sage Fauvel, Sophia's father and warden of the eastern gate, head towards the western gate, leaving the emancipation of the northern gate to Raymond's group. It turns out that the warden of this gate is not human. However, by the time the party has arrived at the western gate, Ruud and the Barral army, following the orders of the Dark Knight, had already laid siege to it.

Conditions for Victory:

  • Complete destruction of enemies

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte
  • Death of Jügler

Scenario 14: Fugitive Dios

Thanks to the efforts by Diehärte and company, the power of all four gates has returned to normal. Thus, both Lushiris Gate and its radiant light have been renewed. Because of this, the hordes of demons became unable to strike. However, this granted no defense against higher level demons. In order to gain power against this kind of demon, the independent party was given orders to seek the Haja no Ken (sword of “evil-defeating,” or malice-rending). As the party hurries on its way to fulfill these orders, they observe General Dios being pursued by the Barral army.

Conditions for Victory:

  • Defeat of Flaire

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte
  • Death of Dios

Scenario 15: Haja no Tsurugi

The party, now bolstered by the addition of Dios, who fled the Barral Army, hurries to the ruins of Estool, where the Haja no Tsurugi sleeps, taken from a foreign kingdom long, long ago. In this place where each cause comes together, history is certain to be made…

Conditions for Victory:

  • Complete destruction of enemies

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte
  • Loss of the Haja no Tsurugi

Scenario 16: Call to Arms

Bolstered by many new friends and the acquisition of the Haja no Tsurugi, Diehärte's mobile division decides next to recapture the capital of Laffel.

Since the Dark Knight is seldom absent from Laffel for any length of time, their margin for victory is slim. However, the Dark Knight will likely leave Laffel to answer a call to arms.

A key element in the party's plan to fake a call to arms in coordination with those left behind to keep tabs on Laffel.

Diehärte has asked to be given the chance to infiltrate Laffel alone. Now the day the stratagem will be executed grows near.

Condition for Victory:

  • Complete annihilation of enemies

Condition for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte

Scenario 17: Operation Recapture Laffel

By attacking Fort Rogier, Diehärte's mobile division successfully drew the Dark Knight from Laffel, allowing them to switch over to their true goal, the recapture of Laffel.

However, while the mobile division makes way to Laffel, the war situation on Lord Raymond's front has taken a serious turn for the worse.

Condition for Victory:

  • Defeat of Flaire

Condition for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte

Scenario 18: Ultimate Military Device of Antiquity

After Diehärte and company defeated Flaire and reclaimed Laffel, they soon found themselves faced with the problem posed by the cruel slaughter of the main troops.

Without a doubt, they now had to defeat the Empire's magically propelled giant soldier and rescue Lord Raymond.

Condition for Victory:

  • Defeat both General Bortz and the magically-propelled giant soldier, Galshook

Condition for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte

Scenario 19: Bortz the Man

After the destruction of the Galshook, General Bortz gathered his remaining troops and began a retreat, to prevent the complete annihilation of his men.

This is just like Bortz, to accept even defeat with manly stoicism and move on.

However, Diehärte's mobile division refuses to allow him this chance to escape. As soon as they have reformed their troops, they continue their pursuit.

Condition for Victory:

  • Defeat of Bortz

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte
  • Bortz's arrival at the skyboat

Scenario 20: Fighting in the Vast Skies

Since General Bortz fought to his last breath to let the majority of his subordinates escape, he gave a fierce accounting of himself. During that battle, he showed that even to his death, he was a true man.

Having defeated Bortz and captured the skyboat, Diehärte quickly set sail to rescue Lord Raymond from his convoy to the Empire.

And now, a fierce battle was about to ensue in the vast skies.

Condition for Victory:

  • Defeat of the Commander in 29 turns

Conditions for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte
  • Time runs out

Scenario 21: The Lovely Capitol, Larcussia

The mobile force rescued Lord Raymond from the convoy of Imperial skyboats and then hastened to the royal capitol of Larcussia to reinforce the decimated troops there.

They must recapture that place if they wish to have restored the Kingdom of Larcuss in both name and truth.

But, wily General Emaillink stands in their way.

Condition for Victory:

  • Destruction of all enemies

  • Death of Diehärte

Scenario 22: To a New Battle

About one year after Viscount Raymond mustered troops, Diehärte and company liberated the royal capitol.

Since the time Field Marshal Altemüller had to withdraw his troops due to a shortage of supplies, he has steadily made preparations for the recapture of Larcuss.

In contrast, the Elthlead army's first move has been to use the speed and power of the mobile attack force to capture an Imperial base along the national border.

Condition for Victory:

  • Destruction of all enemies

Condition for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte

Scenario 23: Necromancy, Redux

At last, Velzeria has begun to mobilize. But, their movements have been cloaked in shadows.

  • Defeat of the royal claimant Richard

Condition for Defeat:

  • Death of Diehärte
